I don't know how, but the fact that all of the pirate's Pokémon evolved from evolution stones totally flew over my head. It wasn't until the three Eevees came along that I knew exactly what was going to be in the treasure. I'm surprised nothing was mentioned of Helioptile though, since it also evolves from an evolution stone. I thought Viola was going to say something in regards to that when Helioptile was pointing to the treasure chest, but instead she just deleted the footage.

Absolutely loved Meowth's reference to Gold, Silver, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, and Pearl. It was an obvious call out to the past games, but it just felt so natural and organically planted. It didn't feel forced into the dialogue.

A fun and enjoyable episode overall. Although, I can't help but think how irrelevant Team Rocket has become. Which is my only gripe with this episode (and many more tbh). Instead of wasting extra time with them, the pirate's Pokémon would have been a better focus for the conflict of the episode's story. This would have then given the writers more time to write in a better ending. Axew became so protective of the Eevees, it's unfortunate we didn't get to see a proper send off between the four of them, especially after they evolved.

One of my favorites so far from Beyond, I always enjoy treasure hunts. As mentioned above, I didn't even catch on to the stone evolution Pokémon until later. Lol at TR when they sunk the pirate ship and when they jumped onto Nidoking's back.

My guess is that because X and Y weren't released at the time of the Japanese airing, they didn't want to spoil Helioptile's evolution and method. I was also thinking that Alexa was going to mention something about it, but I guess they didn't want to stray away from the translation.

It was a cute episode!!! I liked it very much.

One thing I liked was the battle between Ninetales and Charizard! Ninetales is one of my favorite Pokemon and I love the fact that Charizard knows Dragon Tail.
I love Helioptile so much, it's too cute. I agree with you, they couldn't announce Helioptile's evolution method back then but ,maybe, Alexa took a Sun stone with her lol (I don't think she will ever evolve her Helioptile tho).
