Amazing episode after a good first part. I can't find anything to criticize. I'm actually quite surprised that this worked out in a two-part episode, and it's easily my favourite Team Rocket plot in Unova.
The battle with the Therians was good, a much better improvement over the Kami episodes. I like how Pikachu absorbed Thundurus' attack and got the superpowered Electroball from it instead of using plot armour. I'm happy with the end of Team Rocket in Unova and how they're not dead or disbanded. I hope to see then soon in the future.
Also, the music for these last two episodes were great.
Spoiler:- Alpha Sapphire Progress:
Oh Team Rocket, I can't go on without you. Don't go!
Honk if you prefer the Japanese version to the English dub!
At least TRio wont appear anymore in best wishes. Here's to hoping Trio turns into Bob and cassidy and show up only in specials or a one off cameo from now on.
So did Team Rocket go back to Kanto?
Spoiler:- On Hiatus for the Holiday Season:
Friends are family you choose
And I think they'll be seen again, in a Housou special or at the end of BW, but they are no longer regulars in the anime.
OK, I found a translation for Jessie's line on a Japanese site, and it basically just amount to "That Pikachu truly is a very special Pokemon", with James saying "Yeah..."
That's it. NOTHING about what Team Rocket may want to do. It's also spoken very softly and dramatically, like an end line rather than foreshadowing anything
gotta tip my hat to the writers this episode was AWSOME!
I haven't seen brawling this intense since the second movie, man if only more battles were this intensive^_^
I really liked this episode, it was amazing.
-First time in the anime Garchomp was having a hard time
-Is Dragonite finally going to fully obey Iris
-When Oshawott was crying, I find it funny that only Pikachu and Axew comforted him. Ash didn't even say anything
-Meloetta's gone now, well it was a nice run
-Team Rocket's going back to Kanto, interesting
I loved the Team Rocket Double Trouble ending, since it was filled with emotional scenes, the release of Arbok and Weezing should have been in there too. Isn't that the first and only time two main characters released their Pokemon in the same episode?
Friends are family you choose
This episode was pretty good lol although really TR?? Just gonna stand there -_-.
Unfezant ftw!!!! <3!!
Damn Dragonite's a total beast after this episode.
Proud claimer of Cyndaquil and Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed !!
Also proud claimer of Assassin's Creed 2 the game!!
Just became the proud claimer of the Marvel's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show ^_^!!!
I wish my landorus-T on PO had homing stone edges, I would have won so many more games.
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
I think the ending can be intrepeted in two wyas:
1) Like Agent Pierce said, this could be Team Rocket's parting episode, which could also be why they have shown the ending song. But as Serebii said, it could have been just a promo for the game he mentioned.
2) Ash might go to Kanto again, I hardly see this possible but what else is left in Unova to watch? Almost all game locations are covered...som something should happen in the filler saga.
This episode was good, but I will wait to watch it again in a good quality sometime later. This might be one of the episodes I would watch over and over again.
ALthough I must say Cynthia's Garchomp was surprisingly underwhelming. I am not a fan of her or something but it just weakens consistency. This episode reminded be Charizard V/s Entei. A fully evolved v/s a legendary is always fun!
Dragonite was amazing, even in the terror struck situation he maintained his bossy character, but then shortly reformed for Iris's sake. But if it were real-life I doubt if I would try to save my Dragonite like that...oh well Pokemon isn't real anyways.

About the episode:
-I think that this episode is action-packed like expected. We shave some intense scenes.
-Although the Kami Trios deserves a little more, I like their appearances, specially when they are outting in the mirrors and transforming.
-I like that giant Electro Ball. And we know that Thundurus power-up Pikachu. This emans that a giant Electro Ball won't be thrown to Trip's Serperior or something because the latter is pure bad writing.
-Interesting that Dragonite obeys here. Could be definitive?
-TR are in Kanto now, including the TRio. I think that interesting.
I give two notes. One, like a 8,5/10 to the episode. But read that:
-I think sad the Meloetta's leaving scene like a departure. Specially when we know that Meloetta and Oshawott likes together. But I could give a 8/10 for the episode but something that happened four episodes ago:
Like you remmber, in BWS2 02 (why not BW88, the dub appears to continue Rival Destinies; today appears to be almost confirmed) was introduced the rivalry between Oshawott and Piplup because of Meloetta. And I know that where get resolved. In this part of the episode when Meloetta will leave. But because Dawn left 4 episodes ago that could be because in the Junior Cup she was a complete stale characters (note that in this episode the only "Cynthia's villa" characters that doesn't appear is Dawn. Cynthia, Jeremy and of course Meloetta appears and we stayed until the next episode in the villa.
The question is: Did Dawn deserves to be here? Or did she get stale before the two-partner to left in that episode?
Tbh I used to think Dawn should have stayed but looking back all she would have done is stood around for 3 episodes, and then used togekiss in the last before leaving. While Seeing togekiss in action would have been awesome there really wasn't that much a need for the extra firepower.
What the Hell Happened!?
Team Rocket just left Unova unharmed
WHAT KIND OF FINALE WAS THAT!?
I thought Team Rocket would disband!
What are the TRio going to do?
This isn't fair and I'm not satisfied
If there's one thing I hope for is that TRio should return to they're normal selves
Or the writers might be saving them for the 16h Movie!

Dragonite appeared to be doing better than Garchomp.. I disliked that..
Pikachu got his little power boost before the league in a bit more intense way that usual, I liked that scene.. guess he's gonna be taking down something immense at some point towards the end of the league.
Dragonite was protected by Iris, but they both had to be protected by Pikachu.. Therefore we can assume that the dragon will from now on take all its orders from Pikachu, out of respect.
Overall I rather disliked the whole plot and I'm gutted that we said goodbye to Meloetta. I can only hope that Larry lets her do her own thing more and that she still appears to cheer Ash on from a distance, in the league stands. Won't comment on Team Rockets departure, since I firmly believe that they'll be back soon enough, after Ash is done with the league and returns to Kanto.
OR Playthrough - Route 118
This won't change often.. I play through the games slowly..
And two thing regarding the arc:
1. Two anyone who thought Ash would catch Meloetta, nothing hinted to a capture, plus why only him, what about his others friends. Can they catch Legendaries?
2. How is Meloetta a Mary Sue? You can't just throw random words just because you might not like her.
Perfect singer, perfect dancer, beautiful to all, can calm almost anything, falls in love with the main character, her own magical girl transformation, no flaws, has two mascot Pokemon falling in love with her...2. How is Meloetta a Mary Sue? You can't just throw random words just because you might not like her.
BUT HE'S A GUY.
“...This is a tricky problem, huh. I really, really want to see the other Heroes... and if it works out, I want to make friends with them! If I made friends with six Heroes, I’d be an awesome mage! We could even conquer the world!”
