Pokemon JN040 Review...
This episode was a pretty good way to start off a new Friday routine! Getting to see Zapdos again was pretty cool, though I didn't expect it to have Giratina's/Lunala's voice. (But I'm not complaining about that)
The brief Raid Battle against Zapdos was okay, but too bad that Research Fellows and Team Rocket Truce didn't last as long as we expected. It totally should've been before Goh tried to catch Zapdos is when Team Rocket double crossed Ash and Goh.
Despite this, it was pretty cool to see Goh and Raboot battle and almost capture the Legendary Zapdos, as well as seeing Raboot learn Blazekick. It's great to see that Goh has grown enough to go toe to toe with Zapdos, and of course Raboot learning a new move before it evolves. But I am kinda glad that Goh didn't catch Zapdos! While I love that Goh is growing as a battler and a trainer, it might still just a little too soon for him to actually catch a Legendary Pokémon yet. (My mind would be blown if he's the one who catches Eternatus during the Darkest Day arc. But of course Eternatus might just flee or end up being by someone else)
While it wasn't excellent, I still give it a good 8/10!
