Confrontation! The Elite Four of Paldea - Pokémon Horizons Episode 55 Review - Friendly Matches With the Elites

It’s nice that Pokémon Horizons' story was able to take a little break in this week's episode in order to have some fun little matches with the Elite Four members. A total of four separate matches were shown in this episode. To be honest, I thought that the pacing would be a bit messy with that many battles, but it’s not as bad as I assumed.

To be honest, when it comes to Pokémon Horizons episodes, I really like things like this week's episode where the episode is building upcoming plot points for the story. Not only do I get to see more Spinel, but I just love learning more about Horizons’ main story. Having a story-driven Pokémon anime really does wonders for me, and gets me as invested in things as the characters are. There are three sides to this episode: the kids, Friede, and the Explorers, and all tie in very well.

Man, last week's and this week’s episodes of Pokémon Horizons were back-to-back greatness! I really liked this one all the way through from how it started, to how the conflict was resolved. What’s cool is that the plot of this episode was due to something Ryme had said to Roy last episode, so they decided to check it out for a report! Best of all, it’s a Hatenna-focused episode!

I liked this week's episode of Pokémon Horizons because it’s actually a needed development episode for Roy's Wattrel, which has been neglected far too long.

This week's episode of Pokémon Horizons is a nice transition from all of the recent action-packed Terastal Course battles. While those battles were good, Horizons really shines with the more laid back episodes like this one, and it's nice to see the kids having a chance to bond more with their Pokémon.

Congratulations to Pokémon Horizons for reaching its 50th episode! It’s a special milestone, and as such is celebrated with probably one of the best battle episodes the show has offered to date. I’m amazed that Horizons' animators always manage to outdo themselves whenever it comes to creating amazing episodes. It feels like their highs are always getting one-upped, and this week's episode is no exception. Episode 45 was great, but Episode 50 really takes the cake.

Congratulations, Roy, it took 44 episodes, but you finally won your first official battle! You're finally making some progress! This week's episode of Pokémon Horizons highlighted both Roy's positive and negative qualities, and showed off what he's like as a character. He’s an innovative kid; but he's also impatient. I think that he needs to have someone tell him that he doesn’t need to rush, and that he needs to take his time to progress and improve his battling.

Wait a second, is this week's episode of Pokémon Horizons the first time that Friede hasn’t shown up in an episode? Wow! I just realized this when his seminar came up right at the end. Anyways, this was actually a really great episode! Liko gets to battle Katy, and terastalizes Floragato for the first time too!

What I like most about this week's episode of Pokémon Horizons is that so much is given out, and that it's all explained so thoroughly. Instead of having the kids go on a Treasure Hunt like in the game, Liko, Roy and Dot enroll in Naranja Academy’s Terastal Course. It turns out that the school allows students from all over the world to enroll in the course to learn more about the Terastal phenomenon, as permitted by Director Clavell and Chairwoman Geeta.

What a great way to end the second chapter of Pokémon Horizons! The raid battle against the Black Rayquaza in this week's episode was intense! Liko, Roy and Dot all show off their improved battling tactics alongside Friede and Amethio, who shows up unexpectedly after his colleagues retreated. Just seeing the fruits of their hard work, from Amethio mastering Terastal, to Liko and Roy battling so competently without the need of Friede’s handholding, to Liko’s Sprigatito evolving into Floragato, a rare occurrence for Grass-type starters.

Things are getting intense now, with the Brave Olivine sustaining major damage in this week's episode from the Black Rayquaza crashing into it. I think the third arc of Pokémon Horizons being a school arc makes a lot of sense now, as the kids can spend time at school while they wait for the airship to be fully repaired, which you have to imagine could take a long while.

When the Explorers start showing up, you know it’s getting to the end of an arc. With the third chapter of Pokémon Horizons announced, and with two of the Explorers showing up in this episode, it’s inevitable that a big battle is going to happen. I’m excited for the next two weeks. I also enjoyed this week's episode a lot too! It was surprisingly fun.

What did I just watch? Was this a Pokémon Horizons episode or a superhero flick? Whatever it was, I want to see more! I think this week's episode was really fun, and I feel like they should make something similar in the future! This was definitely an interesting way to write a beach episode for a Pokémon anime show!

Why are Dot-focused episodes of Pokémon Horizons so good? Episode 15, which was a mix of Dot and Liko-focus, was good; Episode 39, the first true Dot-focused episode, was really good; and this week's episode focusing on Dot’s backstory, was really really good!

This week's episode of Pokémon Horizons reveals the origins of Liko's Sprigatito! It’s interesting how Sprigatito knew where she came from, and even came back to visit. It’s also nice to learn how these starters come to be, and how they get sent off to schools and labs for beginning trainers. In Sprigatito’s case, it seems she came from a breeder who specializes in breeding feline Pokémon.

Like I mentioned back in my Episode 37 review, I think it's good when episodes focus on just the kids without adult interference. This week's episode of Pokémon Horizons is no exception. Not only is this is a really good episode, it also focuses on Dot! Dot episodes have been rare, so it’s best to savor this one as much as possible!

Since last week's episode of Pokémon Horizons was Roy-focused, it makes sense that this week's episode would be Liko-focused. What’s even better is that it’s also a Hatenna-focused episode too! I think this is the first time she's had focus since her debut. And what's even better than a Hatenna-focused episode? The adult accompanying Liko for this episode isn’t Friede, but Mollie! She’s one of my favorites in Horizons, so I’m glad that she gets to have some of thee spotlight again!

On the third part of the odd jobs saga in Pokémon Horizons, the Rising Volt Tacklers are given a task to move a giant rock as requested by Friede’s archaeologist friend. Although the episode doesn’t explicitly mention it, the group seems to have gone to the Unova region for this task, specifically the Relic Castle located in the middle of the Desert Resort. With this series of odd jobs looking to cointinue for a while, it’s nice to see that they're not just going to be restricted to Paldea, and could potentially be anywhere in the Pokémon world.

The odd jobs saga continues in Pokémon Horizons this week as Liko and Roy are tasked to help one of Nidothing’s viewers with a problem. The viewer, who goes by the username Yunorin, wants to join the Tag Battle Tournament being held in Pigton Town, but her Oinkologne isn’t too thrilled about partnering up with another Pokémon. What could be the issue? It’s nice that the kids are the main focus of this week's episode without adults interfering this time around.
