Just to clear a few things up.
Pikachu did not forget Thunderbolt, Quick Attack or Iron Tail as all three moves were shown after Pika learned Electro Ball. Unless we get Pikachu having with 5 moves, Volt Tackle must've been forgotten. Let's also not forget that every time Pikachu has used Volt Tackle this season it's ended badly for him.
Anyway, as for the episode, it was great. We had a little Axew vs. Sraggy at the beginning, a recurring wild pokemon in SG Sandile(which is never been done before I think). We got a cameo from Excadrill even if it was unspectacular and short. Ducklett trio were annoying but, as Ash said, it's because of them that Pikachu learned Electro Ball which is its first new move in almost 5 years. We got an evolution from SG Sandile and a blast off(don't pretend you didn't enjoy watching something blown towards the horizon again).
On the whole this episode was great, it packed in a lot of references to other episodes no matter how small(like Cilan's fetish for his silverware), we have recurring wild pokemon,Pikachu gets a new move and we have a fresh, more dynamic animation style.
I sure hope that Pikachu haven't forgot Volt Tackle because Volt Tackle is his signature move, and replacing that with a pretty medicore attack like Electro Ball, doesn't really make sense to me. Hopefully Pikachu will use it in the future, perhaps against an important opponent.
Otherwise, this episode is Top 5 best episodes of Unova so far, and by so far, I mean up to the Subway-episodes. This episode had some pretty entertaining moments, combined with the music, it is truly magnificent. The Duckletts were great, through the entire episode and I wish most episodes were like this.
Ugh, don't those three nephews of Donald Duck (I mean Ducklett) have better things to do than steal people's things.
BTW. Ash should have caught Sandile earlier.
The episode is okay, I didn't like Pikachu losing Volt Tackle for Electro Ball.
Ugh, I hate this episode. Hate it hate it hate it. One, those duckletts are highly annoying. And two, this is basically a remake of season four's "All That Glitters", which was made better by James and his bottlecaps. No such luck here.

My Shinies: NEW!! 5/5
This episode was boring. At least we saw more of Sandile's personality which was great because I started to like him. That's another thing I hated about the Trubbish episode. Sandile showed up, only to be blasted away by a poison type. How embarassing.
It took Iris forever to send out Excadrill again.
