The Butterfree-Mandated Detour; Also That Butterfree: During this battle, Hooty Hoot learns Facade. Holy cow that's actually a really good move. Reminder, this is the mon with Marvel Scale, so not only would its defense go up 50% but this move would have 140 power. Even unboosted, it's a bit...

Having busier episodes like this split up into multiple sections is nice. It gives us the option to only open up one or the other. That could come in handy later if we want to go back and check something, like "what was May's name the first time?" Also, I really appreciate that you took th...
