Re: XY078: Meowth

Cool - the Pokeball Factory is appearing. I wonder if they use a remix of the Pokeball Factory theme? I don't remember them using one at the Power Plant

Re: XY078: Meowth

So that's where the scene(in the upcoming episode preview) where Mewoth uses a Pokeball on Pikachu is from, should be interesting.

So Team Flare is not showing up here either. It's Team Rocket that attacks the Poke Ball factory instead. It's looking more and more likely that Team Flare won't show up at all.

What would that do anyway? Unless Pikachu captures Meowth by using its tail to bat it back at him, a Pokeball doesn't work on a caught Pokemon - so it's no better than throwing a rock. I've not seen that preview though.

Hopefully the 'being able to capture already captured Pokemon' isn't down to not pressing a particular switch in the Pokeball factory, so it's hard to think what problems they could cause other than minor inconvenience.

As an aside - it bugged me in the games that they don't temporarily increase the prices of Pokeballs, or have them not sold until you resolve that situation...

Dang, why are they skipping Team Flare? a lot of chances for appearances wasted, maybe saving them for an arc similar to Team Plasma in BW, I doubt it but I hope they just won't skip them like that.

Or they could be doing to Team Flare what they did with Team Plasma in BW.

In my opinion, Team Flare in the anime is essentially just Team Rocket with a costume change. It's Fleur-de-lis who pushes the main plot forward, and he has appeared in the anime. I imagine having the rest of Team Flare would just be cumbersome to the writers given that they're not trying to do anything the Rocket Trio already isn't.

You misunderstand, Meowth was recalling a Pokemon to its Poke ball NOT capturing it.

Ah!

I can't find the episode preview mentioned, so was just guessing based on the description given.

I can't help but imagine Pikachu and Meowth throwing Poke Balls at each other. I'm looking forward to this episode.

Re: XY078: Meowth

Personally, I think the reason TF hasn't shown up by now is because the games didn't give the writers enough to work with, which was probably made even hard given all the plot inconsistencies. So they're providing buildup on the side via the Mega Evolution Specials until they can get their hands on better source material (i.e. a new game), which I predict will happen around the time Act 4 premieres.

Here are some new images and a summary from the episode.


This is what the summary says in the image.

Ash and his friends end up caught in one of Team Rocket's traps! Pikachu is now all by itself, and Meowth is closing in on it!!

All Pikachu has to do is give Meowth a good ol' Thunderbolt to the face. Problem solved.
