>>38314745>I'm literally telling you it's not fine.
And I'm saying it has been fine for the most part, Misty and Brock visiting excluded because every series does this, and Guzzlord being the only real exception because it went nowhere. They teased Pikachu picking up Zerora's move though, so maybe that'll pay off in the future.>Stretching it out wouldn't solve the issue
Then what would? You say whiplash, but if stretching it out more wouldn't fix that, nothing will.>it was realistically a non-issue to Lillie
Because her mom never talked about him and she was too young to remember him. She's only just now learning about him and showing interest in working towards recovering what has been lost, hence Gladion telling Lillie she has gotten stronger.>He was also the only one who actively tried doing something about it.
Because he was the only one who knew about the shit that had gone down and didn't have his head up his ass about it like Lusamine.>>38314764
Is Guzma even going to participate? Right now it sounds like he just wants to wreck it, Team Rocket style.>The four islands didn't work in the games.
I hated the games, but there are people who were fine being railroaded along the exact same path as everyone else. The anime in the past has invented new locations not in the games, and they've just done that again to fill spaces between.>He's been hardly used for anything in general.
Basically just Ash's training partner for growing Rowlet, and that's a vast improvement over the games. He's also not annoyingly super positive like in the games.
