    Big thumbs down for not letting Heracross be the one to knock out Venusaur. All I've got to say. What was the point of bringing him back just to lose?

    Exactly my thoughts.

    And dear heavens, Gravy is NOT going to be happy. All the while, he was adamant on Sceptile not learning Solarbeam, and here it has....Frankly, I'm disappointed, too. Gravy swept me up and away in his logic, and I agree this really goes against Sceptile's style -_-

    Currently hating the writers for royally screwing over Spenser's battle D= I wish they had showcased Sceptile in Anabel's episode, as I really don't care about her at all. What I wanted here was an awesome fight with reasonable KOs. Instead we get Sceptile showing off its blooming backside ;-;

    Oh well, at least I like Sceptile. If the spotlight went to Charizard, I would have to maim a small animal.

    Did Ash send heracross back to Oak's at the end of the episode? I'm really hoping that he didn't, but I'm assuming that he did...

    Heh, it is amusing to see Gravy proven wrong with a lot of his arguments though.

    He always has a lot of great points as to why something should or should not happen, but then the writers prove him wrong and do it anyway. Fate is cruel ay?

    Gravy's already not happy about it, go read the spec thread, and would you people stop complaining about how it contradicts it's fighting style, fully evolved pokemon in my opinion should learn one of the most powerful type moves that they can learn, and who's to say the writers haven't found a way to incorperate the move into it's fighting style, it can be done you know.

    Heracross at least did something that i can't wait to see in the episode pics, Swellow has just become the best "bird flyer" that Ash has had to date,(pidgeot has nothing on him.) and considering the previous episode was all about Sceptile plus the fact he was the only pokemon to lose a battle back as a Grovyle in the arena, he rightfully deserves screen vengence.

    I suppose I should be happy that he appeared at all, but to be honest, I would have rather he just stayed at Ookido's lab than being KO'ed in the first round.

    at least Heracross will give us something to laugh at when the pictures show up, i can't wait to see Venusaurs facial expression.

    Solar Beam's charge-up time is bad for Sceptile's high-speed fighting style, but...he doesn't actually have to stand still while charging, does he? If he can still jump around to dodge attacks while he charges, it's not too bad.

    Judging by Munchlax's Solarbeam, I'm doubting whether Sceptile's has any charge up time at all.

    Great, who wants to bet that May's Bulbasaur learns Solarbeam from Ash's Bulbasaur back at Oaks? Then we'll have 4 Pokemon with the main group that know Solarbeam. :/

    And then Satoshi will use Hinoarashi in the next facility and it'll learn overheat. 8D

    Point taken.

    The Bulbas count as part of the "main group"? Ash's is permanently Oaked, and we have no idea when or if May will retrieve hers.

    You mean, "It will learn Solarbeam by some amazing miracle."

    You know... If it had been one or the other... Heracross losing so quickly OR Sceptile getting plunked with Solarbeam, I could've coped with that. Sure, I'd be upset over which ever of the two did happen, but I could cope. But this... This is low.

    well that's certainly craptacular D:

    I'm sad that Heracross lost and I'm even sadder that Sceptile learned solarbeam... hopefully it'll only be used as a last resort of something and it still uses Bullet Seed and Leaf Blade.

    Let's see. Heracross hasn't been used since Satoshi went to Houen, while Fushigibana was still being trained. Of course Fushigibana's gonna win. Heracross hadn't been used in a while. As long as a good battle was put up, I couldn't care less who won.

    I love the logic of some of you people. You complain when Satoshi's Pokémon win out of some miraculous event, yet when one of the cool yet undertrained Pokémon loses, you have to throw a fit over it. Nice.

    Jukain learning Solarbeam wasn't any suprise. I don't really see much of a problem with it anyways, seeing as Jukain hadn't even learned any new moves since learning Leaf Blade as a Juptile. o_O At least we're not seeing some crazy way of it learning some kind of Razor Leaf or Vine Whip, both which have been overused over the years. >:P

    I think we hate Solaream because it is way over used. Consider the huge move pool Sceptile can use, you'd think they could have given it a more original move than Solar Beam.

    So, Snorlax takes down two fighting types and people justify it by saying the Pokemon probably train at Oak's. Then Heracross gets his head handed to him by a grass type and the justification is that they don't train at Oak's. TBA's conclusion: Heracross got the shaft big time.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Amen.

    I'm only hoping that Ash keeps Heracross in his team to train it.

    'Yeah right, the writers will never do that' I hear you say. And you would be right. I'm just saying what I think would make the loss better, but it ain't gonna happen.

    I'm not too fussed about Solarbeam. I mean, who wants to complain about a Pokemon LEARNING a move? Even Squirtle and Ice Beam wasn't too bad, it was just badly placed to give Squirtle a convinient and cheap win. Sceptile is different though, it has had lots of training, so I'm not bothered.
