    Default Non-filler SM Episode List

    In the spirit of Maldread's thread
    , I've erected this list.

    Essential Non-Filler:
    SM001
    SM002
    SM003
    SM004
    SM008
    SM009
    SM010
    SM012
    SM014
    SM015
    SM018
    SM021
    SM025
    SM026
    SM027
    SM031

    (Non-essential) Non-Filler
    SM005: character focus/background info
    SM007: human-pokemon bonding and backstory
    SM011: Kiawe backstory and character building
    SM013: Egg hatches. That's it. Really, the last 30 seconds prevents it from being a filler.
    SM016: Starters' adventure
    SM017: Rotom's camera function
    SM019: Tapu Koko appearance and slight Sophocles focus
    SM020: Tapu Lele debut
    SM022: Fire Fang mastery
    SM023: Rotomdex gains a new function

    User-Recommended Episodes (Enjoyable Fillers):
    SM06: Ash fails at housework
    SM028: Baseball

    Disputed:



    What is not filler?
    • Captures and Evolutions of Pokemon
    • New Moves
    • Character Backstories and Development
    • Trials
    • Alola Lore Episodes
    • Episodes with Captains and Kahunas
    • Evil team episodes
    • Episodes Where Z-Crystals Are Gained or Lost


    This is a community-agreed list, not one run by Serebii.

    So far I think episodes 1-5 are non filler.

    This.

    I guess 005 could be non-essential non-filler, since it didn't really advance the plot, but we did see Lana's backstory. 001-004 are definitely essential non-filler (arriving, Z-ring/trial, Rotom, Rowlet) IMO.

    5 was the only filler we had so far. Added nothing, wasn't enjoyable.

    I have to respectfully disagree, episode 5 wasn't filler as it showed off more of Lana's personality and gave her some character development alongside here Popplio, so therefore episode 5 can't be considered filler.

    So far episodes 1-5 are non-filler, and from the looks of it I'm guess that episodes 6-9 are probably going to be non-filler as well. So, so far we haven't really gotten any filler.

    1-4 Is Essential.

    5 Could be skipped, but you would miss out hard. Class act on how to do a filler.

    Except episode 5 wasn't really a filler as it provided a backstory to Lana and Popplio, so it really wasn't a filler, although you could probably technically classify it as a (Non-essential) Non-Filler.

    So far no fillers, although episode 5 is what I like to call a filler-type episode. It is essentially non-filler because we got to see Lana's backstory and whatnot, however the way the episode played out didn't add anything significant to the other episodes and the chronology followed a basic filler formula. These filler-type episodes tend to be a lot better than filler episodes, and I would assume it takes around the same effort to make, so I hope we get more of these.

    I hope the they make interesting fillers. The last time I actually enjoyed almost every single filler was in OS.

    The list has been updated with SM001-SM004 in the first category. (Non-essential) Non-Filler is what I'm looking at for SM005. Agreed?

    Never said it was filler, just said it could likely be skipped without it having a significant impact on your viewing of the series.

    Non-essential non-filler seems spot-on unless Popplio's grudge with TS is brought up again later.

    Non-essential non-filler for episode 5 IMO.

    It gives us some information regarding the characters, but nothing that alters the overall plot.

    Agreed, at least for the time being.

    No real filler so far although episode 5 is kinda The Closest we got. since while it have a back story with one of th main characters the actual plot itself didn't advance that much.

    I mean, a person could easily skip episode 5 (as it doesn't advance the plot), but then come back complaining later about how Lana and Popplio never got a focus and backstory, even though in reality they did. So yes, there should probably be some sort of description next to episode 5, something like "character focus/background info".

    If next week's episode doesn't have any sort of character development or backstory for Sophoceles could it be the first filler one?

    Haha, I was planning on making the SM list after about ten episodes, but this is fine. Feel free to copy any of the formatting from the XY series non-filler list thread.


    I wonder how many fillers we'll get in SM. The SOL/school setting could lead to many fillers, but there's decent amount of material in the Trials, Z-moves and beating the Totem Pokemon, and I imagine there will be a more serious second season covering end-game events.

    I think that entirely depends on what happens in that episode, but I do think it will probably give Sophoceles and Togedemaru character development or a backstory, in fact I could easily see a case where when Ash and Sophoceles get separated from their pokemon and stuck behind that door to where there arguing that after they stop arguing and both of them calm down that Sophoceles will probably explain how he met Togedemaru.

    So I think there is a good chance that episode 6 probably won't be filler.

    Judging by the preview and the summary of the episode, I say it most likely going to be filler.

    Then again I'm pretty sure some people were thinking and saying the same thing about episode 5, and we saw how that turned out. So I think it's too early to just say that it's most likely filler as it could easily wind up not being filler, especially since given how they handle episode 5 I think it's more likely that episode 6 won't be filler.

    I'll be disappointed if it is filler and would hope that he gets some sort of development soon, rather than get neglected and have his background shoved in last minute.

    I'm hoping they'll bond over Electric Pokemon while being locked in. So non-essential non-filler again, hopefully

    Episode 5 is indeed a filler. We had a vague five second backstory and no development or plot advancement...
