    I found the whole Cyndaquil evolution sequence of events here to be forced. He had his moments of glory in Johto, but he hadn't done anything since then. So him suddenly having the experience needed to evolve left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I think Ash's Cyndaquil evolved as a way of further promoting HG/SS tbh.

    Piplup flipping out over the missing Pokemon was the best, along with Snorlax's "fall/roll over" attack. I thought it was nice to see all of the Pokemon being used at the end, and Cyndaquil's evolution was awesome too.

    After rewatching the Sinnoh League (for about the millionth time) I've come to the conclusion that the writers brought back all of Ash's old mons as a kind of final farewell, because, literally every pokemon that's not Pikachu (please note that Charizard DID NOT appear in this league) that appeared in this league hasn't appeared or been mentioned since (outside of the last BW episode).

    With that in mind this episode kind of makes me sad and happy at the same time.

    Who or What is Bewear?

    Muk appeared before the final BW episode, does that count?

    I do feel that Satoshi's old Pokemon came back in this episode as a kind of last big gathering. And while they did all show up again at the end of Best Wishes, it was in a photo, so we didn't really get to see their interactions with each other or with Satoshi. At least in this episode they all managed to get some attention before the Shinou League commenced.
