that does seem to be the ways its going. which is a shame cause a lot of this gen's pokemon were greatStill better than what a lot of other Galar Pokémon have gotten so far sadly. At this point, I'm not even sure if we'll get to see half of them get a single episode where they have a decent involvement with the plot. The previous seven Gens have ate up too many of the episodes, which was a concern I had from the very beginning. Cameos and brief appearances might be the best some of these guys get.
Can't believe I'm saying this, but I almost miss the trend of nearly every new Pokémon being given an episode where they're the focus.
