Screenplay 藤咲淳一 (Junichi Fujisaku)
No... this isn’t possible... NOO...NO...

Are my eyes working properly? Who in the right mind allotted this episode to this man? I can say with a fair amount of confidence that Fujisaku has ruined the Alola league so far for me, and I don’t expect him to do a heel face turn.

Oh my god...

Lets hope this is a two parter and he isn't involved with the next part
To be fair, he only wrote half of Rowlet vs Decidueye and none of the parts were stellar.

Oh my god... he’s after Gladion now...
First Jessie’s Mimikyu, then Hau and finally Gladion for him to feast on...

I can tell that Ash wins (thanks to a deux ex machina), that’s a common thread with literally every battle he’s ever written. Poor Gladion.

Meltan suddenly evolving when nearly beaten or the Electrium Z becoming Pikashunium Z I reckon
Yes, I forgot about Pikashunium Z! I guess he’ll pull a thrifty megamart and make Gladion pay for questioning why Ash gets special things once in the saga.

I hope they provide some sort of explanation as to why it changes, maybe something to do with Tapu Koko maybe

It might be fitting after all, but I’m not a fan of Ash having a nuke at his disposal completely randomly.

Can anyone translate what it says?

Google translate brings up this:
“If you can become a bad guy
I wish it was good.”
Which doesn’t make much sense.
"I wish I could become a villain screenwriter"... it seems like the Japanese didn't like the episode as well. Look at this forum discussion. 【アニポケ】モクローVSジュナイパー回の脚本家、意味深なツイートを連発「悪役脚本家として生きてくか」 | ポケモンまとめマスター|ソードシールド(剣盾)/ポケモンGO/ポケマス

He would be more suitable to Dragon Ball Super if he wants to be a villain screenwriter

I think the final between Ash and Gladion will be a two-parter, with maybe some preperations for the finals in this episode. I think the final will be at least a 3 vs 3 where Gladion will be using Zoroark (fake Silvally), Silvally and Lycanroc. Ash will use Melmetal, Pikachu and Lycanroc.

I don’t think it makes any sense to leave out any Pokemon in the finals when both sides have a minimum of four Pokemon.
Finals logically will have as large of a battle as possible.

Its just a shame they're lacking a full team of 6 as that would be a much better end to the league

Plot twist: it's a 6 vs 6 and Gladio will use Noivern and Zeraora.

Melmetal

GG, I don't see a Mythical jobbing in its first ever battle.
