After Madoka faced off with Midori and worked with her co-workers on the 4 company presentation contest and won. However, she felt out of it after all that. She goes back to her hometown to have a breather.Yes, like you would after defeating the Eliite Four in the original game.
As expected, Madoka feels out of it, as her co-workers have noticed. Eventually, she took some time off to return to her hometown. She finds out that an old playground is being torn down. Finally, she went on an adventure of her own, checking on various places around her hometown. She also catches an Articuno and, eventually, a Mewtwo. Surprisingly, she didn’t use her master ball but caught it in an Ultra Ball. Still, it’s a feat, although more so if she used a Pokeball, given Mewtwo’s low catch rate.
After her break, she returned to Tokyo, and she told Koucichi what she had done during her vacation before she announced another important presentation that was coming up on Monday.
I have to admit, this is a pretty interesting JDrama mixing Madoka’s mundane work life at a small creative agency with her rediscovered interest in the first Pokémon games. I admit it’s an interesting concept, especially since her co-workers represent her party members and have personalities similar to the Pokemon they represent.
As expected, there is obvious product placement promoting Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, which is unsurprising since the new DLC came out. Of course, despite being young, Sora knows a lot about all the Pokémon games. Overall, it’s an interesting JDrama mixing some mundane life of a woman to work at a creative agency rediscovering the old Pokémon games. Even I had some nostalgia for the old Pokemon games, although I didn’t get into it until a little while after the games came out.
