    I think Heracross is actually going to stay because knowing Ash now, if a Pokemon of his isn't doing well he'll train it more. All I can say is expect Heracross to stay on the team for a few more episodes and possibly participate in the Battle Tower before being sent back to Oak's...

    I agree! Solar Beam did look cool!

    I don't think he'll acknowledge its bad performance in any future episodes though, can you honestly see Ash say "Heracross let me down against Spenser, I think it needs training."?

    *Yes, I know my example was very lame... but, in whatever context, Ash will never say anything related to the above.

    Ash and Spenser were running all around the island, surely they would have run in or close to where the Kakuna/Beedrill were. Besides, who's to say Beedrill only have to stay in one part of the forest? They have wings...

    There was a Growlithe that needed evolution motivation without a Fire Stone about 2 islands over. They were busy, K.C.!!

    Ah, I see. But weren't they already tuckered out from helping that Weepinbell evolve sans a Leaf Stone the day before?


    On another note, you know what I hate? How Swellow is pretty much Aerial Ace. That's it. That's ALL it uses. I miss Wing Attack, or ANY other Flying move for that matter D:

    Same island, maybe, but didn't we see that Spenser's jungle had boundaries?

    Heracross used a Megahorn attack on Venusaur.But It looks like Venusaur launched Solar beam,and killed Heracross.Too bad Heracross lost against Venusaur.But It was cool that Sceptile learned Solar beam from Venusaur.

    Sceptile didn't learn its new move from venusaur... it didn't even get to see venusaur use solarbeam, it was in its pokeball (Ash is cheap and didn't lash out on pokeballs with windows).

    Heracross losing without taking anyone down was a little bit of a letdown, but if its staying in the group, that'd be cool. I still liked seeing it back in action.

    I enjoyed the battle overall, and thought it was pretty good. I have no problem with Jukain using Solarbeam.

    Well, despite my dissappointment with Heracross's performance, I have to admit this was a pretty good battle. Certainly more interesting to watch than Azami's anyhow. And it was pretty damn funny to see Hera suck on Fushigibana's flower.

    Why do I think we're going to see a new pattern in glowing body parts with new attacks? Solar Beam has Sceptile's balls glowing, and Combusken's Mega Kick has its legs and head feathers glowing.

    Sceptile didn't learn its new move from venusaur... it didn't even get to see venusaur use solarbeam, it was in its pokeball (Ash is cheap and didn't lash out on pokeballs with windows).
    Well when it was in the battling against Claydol Sceptile had absorbed the sunlight then it had a flash back of Venusaur charging up for Solar beam and then Sceptile launched the attack.

    I think its cool looking IMO and its better then no charge up or just seeing their legs glow white.

    Thanks. It does look cool and I just wanted to make sure it wasnt smoke or dust.

    Just saw the pictures, and I have to say; Heracross got shafted. ;_; It was the perfect chance for it to come back, and prove how much of a powerhouse it is, but instead, it sucks bulb and gets KO'ed in it's first battle in God knows how long. The writers should be shot for that. =\

    Anyway, about Sceptile learning Solarbeam. Awesome. Even awesomer if it can somehow make a quick-fire version of it! But I seriously doubt that's going to happen.

    Also, why did they have to give Spencer Shiftry and Venusaur?! Why not Rapidash and Vileplume? Or Typhlosion and Nidoking? >_>; Gawd, the writers could've made this episode so much better. However, I'm glad he had a Claydol.

    I'm 99.9% sure that was Ash having the flashback, and realising Sceptile was about to learn Solarbeam.

    The writers have been doing this through all of the facilities. They always come up with different themes for the facilities. They also come up with pokemon to fit the theme. What annoyed me though was that he actually owned a Crobat and Slaking and they worked perfectly with the jungle theme. At least they brought back heracross like people were hoping for. Also i see what you mean after looking back at some pics.

    .
    Heh, bugs.

    It's funny because Heracross is a bug.

    As for Spenser's team... I don't know, I kinda liked it. Claydol is always awesome. As is Venusaur, even though we only just saw one. Shifry is kinda meh though. As for the suggested replacements, we recently saw Vileplume in the egg episode... not only that, what would it have to offer but Solar Beam?

    Because we all love Solar Beam.

    Love love love. All the way down.

    Maybe it's just me, but isn't Tetsuya's Sceptile's solarbeam different from the Ash's one? I refer to the body parts glowing... tail (tetsuya's one) bulbs (ash's one)...

    The writers/animators always put extra effort into Ash's Pokemon and their attacks over the minor characters. Probably to make his look "cooler."

    Sorry about the speculation here, but what are the chances of Sceptile's Solar Beam being a one-time deal? And future attempts give it problems (like Snorunt's Ice Beam)?

    -_-...........Sceptile seems to have the move down even for a first time usage, one of the main reasons in my opinion that Snorunt had troubles mastering Ice beam was because it was too playful and never seemed to care to much about training, Sceptile is down right serious about everything it does, and i seriously doubt that this move will be a one time deal, though it might be scarcely used like Pikachu's Volt Tackle, it will be used again.

    At least Leaf Blade (at least going by the intro) is still its signature move. And I'm sure Bullet Seed will still be used, as it's better than Solar Beam in faster, more movement-based battles.

    And Cybercubed, how did I know you'd use that avatar?

    Because he's like that.

    Hopefully Leaf Blade still is Sceppy's signature move, having a slow-paced, have-to-charge move would get kind of boring. At least with Leaf Blade it's all acrobatic and stuff.

    Could also be done to drag things out and make the episode "longer".

    Sceptile's certainly got the "balls" to learn Solarbeam. *rimshot*
