    I thought that this episode was okay. The idea of a music group featuring an Alolan Dugtrio was weird enough, but I was kind of surprised that each head apparently had a name. I've been so used to seeing Dugtrio as just one Pokemon, despite having three heads. The wigs were kind of weird too and I've never been a fan of Alolan Dugtrio. It's design just seems so lackluster to me and I would have chosen another first generation Pokemon for an Alola form instead. It was cute to see Kiawe being overprotective of his little sister and wearing the wig just to make her happy. I was expecting him to still not be into the music by the end, but he loved it, which was kind of funny.

    I wasn't expecting Leo to be one of Professor Kukui's students. He looked so normal without the hair and glasses. He seemed to really like Dugtrio when he found it and Diglett wanting to learn under Dugtrio was kind of cute. Even wearing Rotom's wig to imitate it was kind of cute. But then the three heads of Dugtrio started to fight and Team Rocket took advantage of the situation. Alola being so broken up over the band's breakup was both funny and weird.

    Meowth's rapping was so bad, but oddly enough, not really different from how he normally sounds. After all these years, I still really don't like Meowth's current voice with that slang and tough guy tone behind it. At least Ash was able to find them relatively quick with Rockruff and Dugtrio was able to work together pretty nicely with that Tri Attack. Team Rocket's reaction and Bewear showing up when it did was kind of funny. I thought that they were going to have a blast off, but Bewear was right there. And the band got back together just in time for the concert. Overall, it was an okay episode. There were some funny moments in there, but it wasn't too noteworthy beyond that.

    Strange, I thought Leo said he was a classmate of Kukui's. The episode was alright, although I am now half-convinced that Mallow would look better with blonde hair all the time..

    I thought that he was a student, but some of the summaries said that they were classmates too, so I must have been mistaken there.
