Jumping the gun, aren't you? Still got 3 episodes of this left xDThis is the Pokémon movie in TV format. Or rather, a TV arc in movie format. And this officially makes Team Flare the best villain arc ever made in the anime, surpassing even Team Galactic in my opinion in terms of the stakes, characters, origins, and how everything all comes together.
I admit it's a bit preemptive, but really I have never seen an villainous arc quite like Team Flare. This is really something you see out of the movies. Team Galactic, as great as it is nearly 10 years ago, was relatively small-scaled with only a handful knowing what's going on. Cyrus's motives were not as fleshed out (given there is no real backstory as to why he wants to create a new world unlike the games) and he never fought Ash and friends with his own Pokémon. Lysandre covers both aspects. I can definitely feel the game's backstory of how he was once a noble person who became fed up with the world.Jumping the gun, aren't you?

That said, I do agree that this again was another great episode. And again, I agree. It still continues to feel like a movie only in TV format.
Ash and Greninja breaking out was awesome. That battle (It was a 2 vs 7 xD) was pretty great too. (Did Ash command Talonflame at all? Can't remember lel)
Sycamore, Manon and Serena are all heading to Lysandre Labs, alongside TR. Can't wait to see the battles to come out of that.
What's interesting is that there's a connection between b/n Bonnie and Puni-chan, just like Ash and Greninja.
He was using it to collect Mega energy from his battles.Ah, haven't posted in 3 years.. Those eps are just being too good..
What's exactly going on with Alain's keystone bracelet? Did it just focus the mega evolution power for Lysandre's plans, or did it power up his Charizard more?
Just like the games, he offered help to people but they soon asked for more and more. This quickly eroded his opinion on the world. He began seeing them all as selfish.Can someone please explain me about this scene where they're explaining Lysandre Past? Did he just help those people to kill them in the end?
"Wah ha ha! Your convictions, and those of your Pokémon, please me! You are here to stop me. But I ask you to wait. I tried to save people--and the world--with the profit from this lab. But my efforts had no effect... The world was just too vast...and too full of fools that I couldn't save through my hard work alone... That's why I decided the only way to save the world was to take it all for myself. I don't expect that I will ever make you understand how I think and feel... Try to stop the ultimate weapon if you must, but to do so, you will have to explore our lab and have Pokémon battles with all you meet."
Giovanni did the same thing against Red in Origins, and it worked well for him, since his Pokémon were excessively strong. Perhaps it will be the same for Lysandre.Hard to take the battle against Lysandre seriously when the odds are stacked so heavily against him. I do hope he'll use Zygarde against Ash and Alain, otherwise it'll end in a heavily anticlimactic way.
Yeah, but he's facing against 2 opponents, one with a powered-up Greninja+5 other Pokemon and another with an OP Charizard. I don't I'm exaggerating when I say the 2 situations couldn't be any more different.Giovanni did the same thing against Red in Origins, and it worked well for him, since his Pokémon were excessively strong.

Overkill at it's finest... I assure you though, had Ash not already had all 6 of his Pokemon out, it would have easily just been Greninja, Pikachu, and Charizard in this battleAlain's apparently forgotten that he also has six Pokémon, it seems.
