I suspected this in the previous episode with Naoshi (though I still liked the episode quite a lot), but it seems they`re really rushing things to get to the conclusive fight with Satoshi and Shinji. They didn`t even show most of Magmarashii`s fight against Armaldo, and in this situation, they instantly got rid of Airmd. Aside from that, though, the episode qas quite entertaining. Sawamular put up a great fight, and in my opinion should`ve at least tied with Ringuma. As for Emperto, the fact that it didn`t stop standing strong even when it was defeated is something that really impressed me, out of almost all the battles thus far in the series, even. Shinji saying it was a good battle afterwards also shows he`s starting to soften up a bit. And of course, I`m still interested in the new mystery Darkrai trainer idea. All in all, a good episode.
