Electro Ball is an interesting thing. Glad to see that Pikachu finally learns a new move. I think somebody else mention that Pikachu would have learn this one. If only Pikachu would use it more often or something.
I am glad that we finally get to see Team Plasma. I been disappointed that we didn't see them earlier back at the DreamYard or any of the other times they were suppose to appear (if the games mean anything). I am guessing that these episodes are suppose to start up a war between Team Plasma and Team Rocket.
That doesn't mean that he has forgot Volt Tackle. If anything I think he uses in that Rocket vs Plasma video was posted earlier. Just because Pikachu doesn't use a move doesn't mean he forgot it. Thunder is an example of that since the last time he used it was during the Spirittomb episode but it was a long time he used it since before that episode.
