U_U With Rowlet's backstory and him being the odd one from having Pikpek siblings, a Trumbeak mom, and a Toucannon dad, it's safe to say Ash has no need to catch the regional bird when he already has it. The real question is, how is he going to explain to his family why he's in love with a berry.
    The reason Ash usually gets the regional bird is probably because nearly everyone has one in their games to fly places. But with PokeRide, that's been rendered a moot point. I'd still want him to get Pikipek simply because Toucannon is awesome.

    It told her to add the nectar the episode was focused around locating, in order to give the stew a tingling aftertaste. Since she didn't have any, she thought substituting a Thunderbolt would work.

    It didn't.

    Yeah, he's on a culinary journey, which is where he found that recipe.

    I wonder if the evolution scene was only done as a reference to magical girl transformations and not an actual thing they will use for the rest?

    I like that the series has a decent amount of continuity with things like the pancake race and Rowlet's family being referenced occasionally as well as Rockruff's bond with Ash and Team Rocket's base being plot points that have been developed over multiple episodes.

    Then an evolving Magikarp will be creepy.

    Don't worry, it'll only apply to Alolan Pokemon. All the rest will still have that white glowiness that they've always had, probably. Or Magikarp is going to have a really creepy evolution.

    Eh, I disagree. Yo just show it extending its body with sparkles and changing colors while growing spikes and scales.

    I will be disappointed if they kept this evolution sequence a one-time only thing, especially since they have NEVER done that before.

    Caught up on this episode, but wow, what a shock. I've been waiting so long for a Mallow centric episode and when it was announced, it did not seem very appealing, but this is another episode of SM that seemed like that first but I ended up enjoying, and a surprise evolution? That was cool, and at least Steenie is around Pikachu and Meowth's size so it means it can be held still.

    But as a earlier post noted, that kind of continuity isn't really notable. That is every pokemon series has made frequent references to past events in that particular series. If it is happening at all more frequently now its probably because Ash is staying in one place for more episodes than he ever has since the anime started. What's more notable is if they acknowledge or reference the events of previous series/regions (which Sun/Moon has admittedly done a couple of times).

    Just occurred to me that Lillie's Vulpix has it's paw resting on Rowlet. Maybe it's just a little bit closer to the Pokemon than it was in SM014?

    I really don't understand the people saying it is no big deal.

    If any other series did it, people would be praising it as the best series, but since SM is doing it, people are acting like 'meh, it's nothing special, it's obvious'.

    Maybe it does. I noticed Togedemaru was on top of Pikachu when the protagonists were talking, Togedemaru glaring at Rowlet when he tried getting close to Bounsweet, and Pikachu kept trying to stop Rowlet from getting near Bounsweet/Steenee so that he won't get hit (the last time was hilarious. Pikachu failed this time.) Maybe Shiron felt a bit sympathetic towards Rowlet. I didn't notice Shiron doing much.

    Because other series do reference the distant past that can be relevant to current events.

    Not that quirky pancake race from a few days ago.

    So a trainer is shown with a non-native Lickitung on his team. That's neat.

    So is showing Golbat with its mouth closed. How is nobody talking about that?

    I remember why the evolution scene seemed familiar, it's like classic Ben 10... back when they showed his body changing into the aliens. No wonder I like it. I hope they stick with the method,, it's so cool. I hope we can see Torracat turning into an Incineroar, I just want to see one going from bipedal into more of a humanoid stance.

    I do find it strange that Mao chan's older brother has a Lickitung as his partner and yeah I saw Golbat with it's mouth closed but I didn't care much for it aside from seeing how the characters would react.

    I thought Mallow's brother was travelling so didn't pay too much attention to Lickitung.

    Golbat was funny, but it was brief so again, not much attention paid.
