    Glad to see May win. I mean, what would Brock do with the ribbon except for showing it off?

    Give it to May and then May can finally have a pity Ribbon and make Ash feel better and less in denial about his few Kanto 'pity Badges'.

    Or at best give him some character development or battle experience or something DX.

    Hmmm I heard Marshtomp used Protect and Eevee used Dig, in my opinion it would be better the other way around x.x;

    Nah, it's good the way it is. Protect is decent, Dig suits Eevee.

    I'd love to see Marshtomp use Bide for some reason.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    Read the prologue for the Kanto arc HERE

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    So Eevee took down Marshtompt eh? I'm curious to know if the battle came right down to the wire at the end, with a near even amount of points, or if Eevee totally fainted Marshtompt with a Shadow Ball and Dig frenzy.

    I hope May cheered Brock up at the end after his loss though, it's unlike her to see her friends unhappy.

    Also, what happened between Brock and the breeder girl? Did she leave him at the end? (Heh, why am I asking something I already know the answer to?)

    Question

    Something I've been curious about this whole time...did Brock get overconfident from the complimenting he received from that lady? If so, then this episode has something that's been *long* overdue...Brock finally getting cocky, then getting crushed as a result of it(which means that Ash and May are no longer alone in that department)!

    Bow chicka bow bow. (Goes into "Cuban Pete" mode and begins awaiting the day that Misty gets well and truly *whalloped* by Ash in a battle, with no prize for second place this time!)

    Marshtomp using Protect gets another "About time!" from me, given that it's one of Marshie's *natural* moves. I can certainly see how a Dig/Shadow Ball Eevee would cause major problems for the mud fish, especially if Brock got overreliant on Protect, of which the effectiveness breaks down over consecutive usage.

    I wonder how Brock's would-be girlfriend took the sight of his collapse? I presume that it wasn't pretty(go back to Lucy, dude, and give Ash and May your cookbooks).

    How predictable was that? Anybody would have been a fool to bet on Brock winning this as the only other scenario would have been for him to give it to her if he had won (which would have been worse).

    On a positive note, in terms of pokémon I'm glad Eevee wins. It's one of my favourite and for the fact it beats good pokémon enhances it's reputation animé-wise.

    How many ribbons is that now she's got? (I haven't been very up to date recently :P)

    EDIT: Sorry I read that now at the top of the thread. Ok I'm blind.

    I officially hate everything about May except her appearance and kick a** Combusken now. Shame really, but shes too uber for my taste.

    I like her Munchlax though.

    So, any Squirtle-uberness? I hope Eevee and Marstomp has a equal battle.

    Yeah Munchlax is pretty cool but its still pretty much a carbon copy of Ash's Snorlax.

    I'd say it probably came down to the wire... I'm sure that the writers aren't so cruel as to have May totally crush Brock in a landslide victory, that'd be plain evil.

    What? I think Munchlax is way differnt then Ash's Snorlax, it's hyperactive. Also, it has different battling styles (Snorlax is body slamming and ice punch while Munchlax is solar beams and metronomes.)

    Was Haruka's Theme in this episode, like as a ending?

    According to bmgf Bonsly uses faint attack. Anyway it seemed obvious Brock would lose but I hope its a close battle. I also hope Eevee doesnt just use dig and shadow ball the entire time. Dig is a cool new move to learn though. I remember everyone saying how bland it is so I'm glad the writers are picking its more unique moves. Also marshtomp learning protect to me doesnt make much of a difference it hardly ever appears so it doenst matter much.

    ...she's uber for defeating a Marshtomp with almost zero battle experience? Gwah? ?_?

    And isn't 'Munchlax is cool' a bit of an oxymoron?

    Isn't saying "dunsparce is cool" a oxymoron as well....

    Nah, I'm fooling. I like the little snake too. But some people do consider Munchlax cool.

    BTW, anyone know what happened with the girl?

    She probably just ended up waving goodbye to Brock, smiling happily while Brock walks away, crying and looking back at what could have been.

    Or maybe she didn't actually do anything other than act as a plot device to get Brock in a Contest. Hmmm...

    Well that show how the writers favor May, making her to uber.

    Too uber? She beat Brock, Brock has no use for a ribbon, Brock has no expierence in a contest and his pokemon have little to no expierence. Its understandable for her to beat Brock.

    This episode would've been a perfect time for Marshtomp to learn Earthquake, if you know what I mean...

    People, people, if you're going to complain and keep calling May uber, at least WATCH WHAT HAPPENS before judging things. Brock, last time I checked, hasn't served in a major battle since forever. And, this being his first contest, I somehow doubted he would work out exactly the strategies to use. So seriously, if Brock won, wouldn't that be worse off than May winning?

    Still, Brock's experience is solid and he has a longer battle history than May, his skills would still be intact and sharp... or at least they should've been.

    Oh boo-hoo, poor Marshtompt got beaten by an Eevee. Who cares?

    What battles has Mudkip been in in AG? What battles has Marshtompt been in in AG? Of the few times it actually battled, when has that thing actually won?

    Anyone can see the clear difference between the other starters like Grovyle and Combusken and then poor little Marshtompt. It was never a strong Pokemon to begin with, and the only reason it was on the damn show was because the writers wanted all 3 starters with the main characters.

    Since Brock doesn't have a real quest like Ash/May, his Mudkip/Marshtompt did next to nothing while Grovyle/Sceptile and Combusken just kept getting stronger and stronger.

    As for this actual contest, I would *hope* an experienced coordinator who has competed in 11 Contests prior as well as a Grand Festival to put up a good fight against someone who has entered a Contest for the first time.

    As long as Brock put up a great fight before going down, that's good enough. You also have to realize that Brock had to take down some other opponents before he got to the finals with May, so that should count for something.

    Still, Marshtomp's experience isn't solid and he has an almost nonexistant battle history, it's skills arent intact and sharp..... it at least should've had training.
    Just fixed that.

    Although Marshtomp has not gotten much battling experience, which makes it less humiliating than Squirtle vs. Ariados (which I assume did have training), you still have to take into account that the Eevee just hatched about 10 episodes ago. That said, although I wouldn't have liked to see Brock win (that'd be even more humiliating), May should have used a different Pokemon. Maybe called Bulbasaur from Oak's (Since Combusken had its time in the light against Wakana, and the others have gotten their fair exposure).
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
