Second episode of the new adventure, which is basically a prolonged way back to Kanto.
This time, it is an all-out filler without any impact on other episodes. Again based solely on Rocket Gang and their "evil" plan of... wait for it.... getting Pikachu! Surprise! And the plan turns into Satoshi gang's Pokemon getting lost in a forest with Nyaasu. Deja vu.
Despite the fact that this episode doesn't bring anything interesting or new, it was quite enjoyable. Some moments felt somehow more nostalgic than just repetitive (Victreebel accident, getting chased by Beedrill, ...) and compared to the previous episode, everything happened in a bit more enjoyable environment (Island forest > Rusty ship of dubious origin).
I was just a bit disappointed by the lack of Combee. There were some, but for an episode with "honey" in its name, it was by far not enough.
A total filler. But one of the better total fillers as it was less boring than expected from such episode.
I give it 7
