  1. @Flame Dragon what was the group of pokemon you couldn't wait to see people's reactions of?

  2. Reihyou no Mayakashi – Yuki Onna (Yuki-Onna, the Absolute Zero Mayakashi) WATER/Link 4/Zombie/Link/Effect Links: Left, Bottom Left, Bottom Right, Right 2+ Zombie monsters You can only use the 3rd effect of this card’s name once per turn. (1) You can only control 1 “Yuki-Onna, the Absolute Zero Mayakashi”. (2) Negate the effects of your opponent’s monster effects that activate while they are banished. (3) If a monster is Special Summoned from the GY or if the effect of a monster is activated in the GY: You can target 1 other face-up monster on the field; Its ATK becomes 0 and its effects are negated. 2900
  3. That's pretty much the premise of the first episode, Pikachu's past before he became Ash's pokemon.
  4. I find it interesting that its draw effect is similar to Soulburner's skill from the anime, makes sense given that this is wearing Heatleo as armour.
  5. *looks* I forgot that it was in the R manga, then again I'm not entirely familiar with it, so I could be mistaken for thinking it was a game original. Though I do like that they made the materials generic enough, whilst staying somewhat faithful with the manga materials. OT: It could be an interesting option for HEROs, though regarding the (1) effect, I could possibly see more of that kind of effect moving forward.
  6. Not gonna lie, I thought that we’d get this in Eternity Code. At least it doesn’t have to attack a monster for its additional attack.
  7. More episode titles: Episode 1091: On Lugia They Go, Ash and Go! (November 17th) Episode 1092: Ivysaur is Quite Mysterious, Don't You Think So? (December 1st) Episode 1093: Let's Go to the Galar Region! An Encounter with Scorbunny!! (December 8th) Episode 1094: Snorlax Grows Gigantic?! The Mystery of Dynamax!! (December 15th) Episode 1095: I'm Gonna Get a Ton of Pokémon! The Road to Mew!! (December 22nd) Episode 1097: Don't Give In, Piplup! An Ice Floe Race in the Sinnoh Region!! (January 12th) Episode 1098: The Pledge We Made That Day! The Ho-Oh Legend of the Johto Region!! (January 19th) The first of these is part of a 1 hour special with the first episode, the second features an influx of Ivysaur near Vermillion, the next two feature Galar and the Dynamax phenomenon. Episode 6 features Go catching Pokémon, and 7 and 8 features trips to Sinnoh and Johto.

  9. ASun & Moon is now donion rings and before I move on to final thoughts, I have one thing to say: GOOD RIDDANCE BEWEAR! You won't be missed! (that is something I wouldn't say on Serebii at all). On to the final episode itself, It was a surprise to see Burnet becoming pregnant, though I'm gonna be real, since it's likely we won't see the baby, it might as well be interpreted as she put on weight. I liked that TR got a blast off in the end, sure it was due to Bewear (who starved them of blast offs in the first place), but a blast off is a blast off. I didn't notice it at first, but Jigglypuff was also on the plane heading to Kanto, it was resting under a seat. I will say this, when Vera was explaining (or failing to explain) about helping an Ultra Beast, my immediate thoughts were "I'd sooner believe Lana's bollocks than that". Also TR leaving their 'mons in Alola rather than sending them to TR HQ was for the best as they wondered if they would be happy there (and it's the first time Jessie & James released a Pokémon at the same time since Arbok and Weezing in AG006), as for Vera Kukui'ing his Alolan 'mons honestly makes no difference than if they got Oak'd tbph, though everything had come full circle, Pokémon-wise for Vera & TR, they returned to Kanto with the same amount of Pokémon in their possession as they did when they came to Alola. The episode was a feels trip though to say the least. As for a series review: I will admit that the artstyle change took a little bit of getting used to, but it fit the setting of the Alola region, and the change of formula they did with SM was a nice change of pace and we got to appreciate life in Alola more with recurring characters and such, and they didn't shy away from breaking conventions, like Ash having a mythical on his team, and winning the league and on reflection, with the premise of the upcoming series, it was nice to finally see him win a league, and continuing with the breaking conventions tangent, I appreciate that they covered themes like death (like Stoutland for instance) yet did so respectfully and maturely. Of course, the series was not without controversy, as was the case with SM064, which became the first episode to be banned outside of Asia since EP250. I also liked that they gave attention to Pokémon that haven't appeared in the series in practically an eternity, even if it's a cameo, as well as references to various other anime with regards to facial expressions or outfits worn. One thing I was iffy on was Jigglypuff returning as its character arc was pretty much donion rings after its sole AG appearance. That aside, moving on to things I didn't like about SM, Torracat evolving was pointless as it didn't get to fight as incineroar (at least May's Blaziken got action in DP). The Bewear gag got old for me fairly quickly, and it preventing TR's blast off in SM042 was a huge red line for me as it had no business going there in the first place (unlike TR), at least that was rectified in SM102. Another negative for me was the premise of SM068 and the fact that it contradicted employment laws (regarding Ash at least). Also I will not forget the disrespect towards Araquanid who had less than 30 seconds of screentime throughout the entirety of SM, nor will I forget about some continuity being flushed down the toilet (ie Ash forgetting how to play ping pong). Finally I wasn't the biggest fan of the PokéProblem segment (or as I call it, the piss easy question segment), then again I'm an older fan so that can be forgiven, though I didn't mind the characters talking about specific Pokémon at the end as it educated the younger viewers as they might not know much about them if at all. Another negative I must mention is the overuse of some insert song within a undetermined span of episodes, like they did halfway through the series when Future Connection was used 7 times in 12 episodes. Negatives aside, SM was a fairly decent series, though not as battle oriented as previous series, it did have some battles (Ash vs Kukui being the best that SM offered), and the change in artstyle allowed for more flexibility in animation.
  10. Key visual: Judging from the trailer, it might be a reboot series (I figured it might be). And the first episode is set as a flashback to before Ash and Pikachu met and features a certain Pichu in Kanto Episode 1090: Pikachu is Born (November 17th)
  11. "Excuse me, I'm using the bathroom!" They apologise and leave (For reference, I have done this)
  12. Not make a sound and sweep it off my face.
  13. I couldn't possibly say, don't want to offend anyone.
