Title: Re: BWS2-DA 1: さらばイッシュ！新たなる船出！！/Saraba Isshu! Arataranaru fu...
Satoshi aims towards Kanto once again. And Team Rocket returns to being the dumb villain trio they have been before BW. Well, not by 100%, but very close to that. I am quite disappointed by this "comeback". It might mean more filler episodes that happened just because Musashi and Kojiro want The Pikachu :/
The first few seconds of this episode were a bit surprising. I thought I have missed something between previous episode and this. But that was just a bit of trolling :) Iris on a Zekrom, that just has to really happen sooner or later.
The episode was important for Satoshi's group as they began journey through the Decolora islands. It introduced the ship they will be taking and Parker-san, who will be taking care of them. However, rest of the episode was just a Rocket Gang plot on a ship. Their plot began in a quite smart way but then it went downhill and... you can predict the rest.
I think most of this episode was a bit redundant. For fans of old Rocket it probably brought hope. To me it brought doubts.
Sorry Musashi, Kojiro and Nyaasu. I think you were better as real villains, showing up just once in a while (not in EVERY episode), trying to conduct a well-prepared evil plan with much better goals than just some kid's Pikachu. If you haven't been slacking off in Isshu, you could have just caught a wild Pikachu in Kanto, like a normal trainer. You have decent Pokemon and you know how to battle. Just get a pair of balls and try to catch a yellow rat the easier and cleaner wy. Just try it for once! Seriously, even a child can do it, so no excuses! This episode didn't make me like you any more than Miley Cyrus's song about wrecking some balls. She obviously doesn't want to catch Pokemon in normal way either. Maybe you should ask her to join Rocket Gang. That you would make you 20% more annoying :P
I have seen much worse Pokemon episodes, but also much better ones. For a beginning of a new sub-season it was somehow a disappointment.
I give it 6 (slightly better average)
