I really enjoyed this episode because all of Masara Town's citizens joined together to celebrate Satoshi. Pigeon's evolution into Pigeot, despite it occurring way too late in the saga, was wonderful, too. Wonder why Shigeru wasn't at the Masara Town festivities, though.
Although it would've been cool if he was there, it seemed in-character of Gary not to attend cuz he was always seeking new challenges and it made sense that he would immediately head out on a new journey.
