    They brought back Misty and Brock for a few episodes, but that didn't bring the ratings up, which means it shouldn't even matter because as others have said, it's the merchandise that matters.
    Correction, the second Misty and Brock episode had SM having the highest ratings it ever got. Just ask Frozocrone, he made that much clear.

      Yeah, by about 0.2

      It started out with 4.3 IIRC, so 4.5 is nothing to write home about.

      I also don't see how it 'assures' Misty's return later.

        I thought you said it was the highest it's ever gotten. It's still a LOT better than the first episode for Misty and Brock's return, which did so badly in the ratings it didn't even make the top 10 if BanFairy's to be believed.

        As far as how it "assures" Misty and Brock's return later, simple, the writers already had them promising Ash that they'll meet Ash in Alola, and considering the writers are obsessed with ratings, being the reason the show continues to exist, if it gets high ratings, at least by comparison to other episodes, that means it's well received enough to continue with it. Otherwise, if it had bad ratings, they wouldn't bother revisiting it. I've seen it happen before in other shows. Heck, even other movies.

          Misty and Brock return episode should have had an higher rating, but for some reason it didn't. Besides the fact the return episode was way too overrush and the writers didn't do enough with Misty's and Brock's return.

            It means ratings don't mean squat especially nowadays. I've seen fillers get higher ratings than episodes where something important happens. There's just other means of watching now (and illegally streaming doesn't get counted in the ratings btw)

              Yeah, tell that to GCB or Maureen or Heroes Reborn, or, heck, Doubt, even. And for the record, I can and have named quite a few Japanese shows that got cancelled due to bad ratings, some of which were fairly recent, including Bleach.

              And for the record, Poke245 and Irregular Maverick X both stated that even among illegal streaming, it STILL got bad ratings, so there's that to be said as well.
