The Hunt for Ash Ketchum

- Previously on Pokémon Sun & Moon;

- They are rewinding the scenes. I don't recall the show ever doing that;

- And here we go for the footage of Ash and Torracat being sent to the past;

- They are using that thing from the ANA Pikachu shorts where the narrator voices over the pokémon as they are dubbing their lines. NOOOOOO!;

- I much prefer when they do like the Island of Giant Pokémon and just subtitle their lines. Makes sense using voice because of the toddles who haven't learned to read but... If that's the case do like the Darkrai dream episode on XYZ and get the pokémon VAs to dub their lines in japanese. They do pay the VAs to record the dialogue for every single episode if I recall correctly;

- That time Pikachu and Lycanroc find out they've been cuddling a Sudowoodo;

- Bet Sudowoodo will sue them for harassment ;

- Seems like they changed the PikaSpeak... Ash used to call Ash "Pikapi" now it's just a generic "Pika";

- Lycanroc tries Ash's capa but I guess that "horn-ish" thing doesn't let him do it right;

- He was a lot cuter when he was a Rockruff and used a cap in the baseball episode;

- Meltan wants to try wearing Ash's hat as well lol;

- Clefable's Meltans have multiplied!;

- I wonder how much of Lusamine's budget go away with buying all those screws and nuts for the Meltans;

- Now Rowlett is wearing Ash's cap. Guess the staff wanted all of Ash's pokémon to wear the thing;

- Wish Poipole was still with Ash just to see the joke with it as well;

- The cold doesn't bother Garchomp anyway... Despite being 4x times weak to Ice!;

- ... Well since like it did bother after all;

- Pikachu and co had found Rosebud and now are making use of it;

- I wouldn't be surprised if everyone on #TeamAsh learned Ice Ball after that! lol;

- How convenient for Ash's hat fall and go backwards on Pikachu's head;

- Looks like #TeamAsh is blasting off;

- Seems like Pikachu can spin his tail like Tails. We finally found out how Fly!Pikachu can use Fly!;

- Pikachu uses "Boku". Always thought he'd use "Ore" like Ash. Yeah, I do pay attention to japanese pronouns lol;

- Speaking of pronouns, Lycanroc uses a different one. I wonder if Ash's Torracat would use "wagahaya";

- Why are they fighting for the berry when they could just work together to get it?;

- And now they are conveniently back to square one!;

- So is Ash and Torracat, who just returned from their time trip!;

- More footage being recycled. Guess that helps to save budget and time so the new scenes can get better animation;

- Look how "darker" Ash's cap is. I'm surprised it survived all the events in the episode but it's still a nice detail showing affected by the last hijink of #TeamAsh;

- I do wonder why Ash didn't noticed something off on his cap though;

- Love that final shot with Ash's pokémon cuddling him and then everyone goes walks back to Kukui's lab;

- No TR means bonus points!

Overall, great episode! After last week's spectacular episode, we got another pretty good one. It was almost on par with last week's if the narrator's voice "dubbing" the pokémon wasn't so annoying. Hope the foreign dubs will get unique VAs for the pokémon but I wouldn't bet money on it.

Anyway, the episode was one of the kind I've always wanted to see in the show: an episode that's mostly about Ash's current team interacting among themselves. And this episode definetely did the trick.

Much like last week, the comedy was used to good effect and it wasn't the slapstick stupidity from the early days. I repeat the question from last week: where was this quality in the previous 124?

All in all, an amazing episode!

Next time: More Magearna, Gladio's return and Lillie possibly mastering her Z-move!

For that the protagonist would need a personality in the first place. For 7 generations our guy has been a blank post, not reacting to any thing happening around them culminating in Sun and Moon where the most amazing, dramatic, and traumatic family reunion is happening in front of them and they just stand there with a smile on their face.
I've always felt it was awkward for the games doing that when ORAS just had some scenes where Brendan showed a serious expression in some cutscenes.

Looking at the screenshots, honestly I don't see why they have to even "dub in the lines". Why not just go the "Island of the Giant Pokemon" route: have the Pokemon speak in Pokemon and sub it? I guess that's not what it did but at least it wouldn't mean one voice translating everything said by Pikachu et al.

I mean, Lost Galaxy Yellow was in Not Another Teen Movie. And she was the naked foreign chick.

And I really hope this new game lets the player choose how to characterize Protagonists' personalities. Might make up for not being able to get the Nationaldex.

That, or give some major buffs for the weaker characters.
No Scottish person has, or would ever, use the word "focken".

Because those same people won’t admit that they are as much degenerates as Those they moan about.

It’s like us, the forum will say it’s creepy when we say a pr actress is hot, but swoon when an actor rips off his shirt.
That's a mass generalisation. For one thing, context is important. But also, it's most of the female tumblr fanbase swooning over Nessa. That doesn't make all the comments about her appropriate or mean the criticism is just "she should be covered!" .

Do the human characters ever call Ash something other than Satoshi? If he has a nickname, that would explain Pikachu not saying Pikapi.

Also, Ash used to call Ash...?

Yep. The majority of what I'm seeing isn't "Cover her up", it's "Can we stop being creepy about a character in a kids video game?"

There was a point where you could look up Wicke on Google Images and porn/ecchi stuff was on, like, the first page. I think people would rather that kids not be exposed to stuff like that when they're just looking up stuff about the characters.

The only other one I can think of is obviously TR calling him "Jari-boy", which of course is translated as "Twerp" here.

Let me look like the guy in the lower-right corner.

I think it's safe to say the Sword and Shield drama isn't dying anytime soon.

They're trying to portray a Scottish person's accent. And yes, that's how a Scottish person with aheavy accent sounds when they say fuckin.

It definitely is not.

I love the idea of the female trainer being Scottish, but all of these exaggerated attempts at the accent are horribly off, like the only time they've heard the accent is from Groundskeeper Willie.

Believe me, it's entirely possible that some people doing the Scottish trainer meme literally have only heard it from Groundskeeper Willie.
