    I can confirm that May lost this contest, if you wish to fully discuss the ramifications and your feelings about this loss while being unrelated to the episode, please do it elsewhere

    So I guess it's true that Harley has Octillery and...

    HARLEY FINALLY WON! All I want to know is how May will act after she loses. I mean, if she's going to be such a you-know-what like when she lost to Savanna.

    Can you confirm which attacks were used?

    If not... get outta here.

    Knew she'd lose. Well done Harley, he deserved a win. So the next Contest episode soon she'll probably get the ribon she lost here (not the exact same one)

    Oh happy day. Harley got a win and Octillery got to make up for the sins of those who came before it. I wonder if Metronome went all wrong and Munchlax paid for it dearly.

    Still, TBA is happy. Now all we need is the Steelers to win this weekend.

    This is all I needed to know about the episode, the rest is irrelevant. Thank you Battle Frontier writers for getting this saga out of the slump it started in.

    Irrelevant? How about how it fought? The attacks used? The outcome of how it kicked some ass?

    Oh sure, I agree with that about the surrounding plot, but not the battle itself!

    I hoped Munchlax proved itself though.

    Ohhh yeah! I have mad prediction skillz. This sounds like a great episode. I wonder if May losing is going to affect her attitude for the next contest? It could really shake her confidence.

    Why is everybody so excited about May losing? At the end of the days all this does is extend the time it's going to take for the group to make their way through Kanto as May will now have to enter an extra content in order to obtain five ribbons.

    We're pleased because it would be unrealistic for May to win every contest, we'd rather see extra contests in the BF than extra fillers, and this way Harley gets some credibility as a villain again.

    Quite simply, because the majority wanted to see Harley take the win (Curse you Jo-Jo!). And to a lesser extent, to see Munchlax get its ass kicked to curb. But we shouldn't name names, ne? ;P
    Besides, its hardly like the Frontier is moving at a snails pace at the moment.

    I just want to know what Harley does after he defeats Haruka. Hopefully something along the lines of rubbing more than a tea-spoon of salt in the wound, old skool

    Agreed, Contests are ever so grand. More contests means less filler too.

    We went to 8 Gyms in Hoenn and 8 Contests in Hoenn. We're going to 7 Brains in Kanto, does that mean we'll have 7 contests? If so, May will have to lose another one down the road.

    Yes, lots of confirmation. Everyone at Japanese forums are talking about it. And they're just as happy as we are. ^.^ Booyah for Harley!

    And since no one's mentioned it... Haruka gets a rose and a letter from Shuu somehow. Dunno how, as I couldn't translate well enough to say for sure. Looks like she won't be as depressed as I'd hoped... >.> Perhaps it's an invitation to the next contest?

    All piss. I want to see her cry enough tears to fill Lake Erie. Not mention Harley go crazy for finally sticking it to her (though we'll get that part anyhow). Blasted Drew. *Locks Drew in a meat freezer.*

    I'm glad Harley finally beat May. Now, I hope he doesn't appear again until the Grand Festival of the BF.

    so the japanese are ****ing idiots too, no wonder the writers get away with all this ****

    I'll bet they pulled more stupid **** out of their *** for this one too, like every other time May lost, and for every Gym battle besides Rustboro (she lost on purpose to make everyone think she's incompetent and not evil, sadly, it worked) and Dewford.....

    .....the writers are awesome? how the hell do you all breathe? someone that idiotic should not be able to pull breathing off!

    The hell are you talking about? The only asterisks they pulled out of their asterisks were the Eneko and Zenigame battles. And those were when she won.

    ...Please die. :/

    ...guess no matter how hard they try, you just can't please everyone...

    I personally want to see how Munchlax, and more importantly Octillery, performed. Hope there was an Octazooka somewhere.

    Haruka already win 3 times against .... him, and ... him just won once, two words come to my mind right now: "Pity victory"

    Anyway, hey, looks like is the bad guys turn, Kojirou won, Him won, will Musashi win sometime?
