Title: Re: BWS2-DA 5: 霧の中のゾロアーク！！/Kiri no naka no Zoroark!!
A somehow deeper episode. And a bit sad.
This is actually an example of way too revealing and spoiling episode name. If there was no Zoroark and "Illusions" in the name and Zoroark as the "Who's that Pokemon?", it might have been a very good mysterious episode with finale that might be even surprising for some viewers. But when you know this episode is about Zoroark, everything is very obvious. Seriously, how would you enjoy a mystery / detective story where right from the beginning you know who is the culprit and how has he done it?
Also, some Rocket Gang here. Not too much, not getting too annoying, but also not really contributing to anything. Basically they were completely redundant in this episode. But I have noticed that since their "comeback", when talking about Sakaki-sama, there haven't been any lame visualization of Rocket Gang's imaginations about the happiness and joy they would cause him by bringing him this or that (or Pikachu, for a change). For omitting these horrible scenes, Rocket Gang receives a small plus from me.
A very enjoyable filler episode without any disturbing elements, with a bit rushed finale (everything gets explained way too fast). It doesn't really include any explicitly original ideas, but if the episode name didn't tell right from the beginning what is actually happening, it would make the episode much better, maybe even worthy of 10.
But considering all that influences the experience about this episode, I am deciding between 8 and 9.
I give it 9, but next time an episode name spoils everything, I will round it down to the floor.

You would totally like to be a tree.
