I thought that this episode was okay. The fairy tale Sophocles was talking about was pretty similar to a Japanese legend, so that was a nice touch. He seemed really devoted to helping out Celesteela once he first uncovered it. It was nice that Ash and the rest of his friends started to help dig it out too. The fact that it had been there for over two hundred years was a big surprise. It must have been able to just go straight into the forest without causing a big scene.

It was pretty obvious that it was an Ultra Beast. It was nice that they got more time to help Celesteela get to the moon even after they were told as Ultra Guardians to catch it. Team Rocket showing up felt more like a way to pad out the episode, but it was also kind of nice considering that they don't confront Ash and his friends too often in this series. It was also nice that they used their Ride Pokemon to help get Celesteela out without the build up gas causing a huge fire. Seeing Celesteela fly off to the moon was pretty cool. Overall, it was an okay episode.

I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
