Definitely some solid moments and I’m not gonna lie—The end reveal blew my friggin mind but for the most part I just found this lukewarmly entertaining. Nothing was too bad or good. Only thing I’d say is the CG animation was rough and contrasted with the 2D took me out a bit.
I also just finished 4 seasons now of the anime and I feel like this is the first time I’ve seen a Tangela. Wtf they got against that bundle of joy?! Tangela always seemed like such a mysterious and badass Pokémon.
