Shine, Terastal! Dance Dance Quaxly!! - Pokémon Horizons Episode 50 Review - Dazzle, Go Viral And Shine

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.

Shine! The Brilliance of Fire and Art! - Pokémon Horizons Episode 48 Review - Avant-garde? More Like Art-vant-gardener!

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.

How Thrilling! Naranja Academy - Pokémon Horizons Episode 46 Review - Time For the Terastal Debut

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.

To a Place Far, Far Away - Pokémon Horizons Episode 45 Review - The End of the Second Chapter

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.

Farewell Sprigatito? - Pokémon Horizons Episode 40 Review - Is Sprigatito leaving Liko?

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.
