This episode was epic, I'm glad to see Serena and Clemont actually made themselves of great use and the battle between Ash and Lysandre's been great.....the end was so sad and heartwrenching, I almost wanted to cry....my only compliant is that Malva's face turn was a little anticlimatic. I knew it was coming, but it didn't feel satisfying in a way....

Clemont getting some kind of development/episode to himself was good cause he needed it. Didn't see Malva turning on Lysandre coming.

I loved the episode. So Malva IS opposing Lysandre. Somehow, I had a feeling that would happen. How does Lysandre think he can take on 3 powerful opponents with one Mega, especially that OP MegaZard? I guess the you gotta make the boss a tough nut to crack. The things that caught my attention were Clemont and Bonnie's tearful moments with Clembot and Puni-Chan, respectively. I felt sorry for them both and I felt like crying too. I didn't mind hearing Bonnie sing since it was so heartfelt, and poor Clemont won't be the same without Clembot. Steven showed up and he was SO awesome. I loved it. Team Rocket finally reveal themselves and are battling Celosia. Yes!!! They're finally contributing, even though I wanted them to get revenge on Mable and that Weaville.

So Mairin got her Chespie back, that huge cannon is destroyed by Clembot and Clemont, and both Zygardes are back to normal. My only problem is that this episode did not really focus on Clemont and Xerosic or their battle. I liked it when Xerosic was sent falling through the trapped door. That was kinda funny. I really wish Malamar was part of this plot. What ARE they doing with Malamar anyway?

Anyway, the episode gets a 7.5/10 since the lack of Clemont and Xerosic was present and the Malamar was not gonna be showing up, but whatever.
