    How impressive should that be? Aside from the fight with Absol (which lasted about 3 seconds by the way), there was no implication of fighting other coordinators, not even a montage like in previous eps. I'm not going to get excited over that. And this is Brock and May's fight. We're expecting him to get through.

    I'm talking about those matches being animated, Geo. What did you think I meant by montage?

    Also, I noticed this when watching, the guy farthest to the left is that repeat character that gets used over and over.

    I know that, V, but my point was there was at least proof that there was one other battle that he would've won.

    Well he's got a 2-1 win/loss record so far in contest battles, that's not bad.

    When the hell are we going to see that guy's Poliwrath again?
    And that other kid should learn that Azurrils are for chumps. He ain't going nowhere.

    This episode, albeit a fantastic one, is being added to my list of episodes in the BF which just needed to be one episode longer. And the upcoming Smoochum episode is being added to the list of episodes which could have been sacrificed in order to allow these extra episodes.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

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

    Interestingly, the fact Brock lost to a baby doesn't bug me much. Maybe it's because from what I've been reading, Brock wasn't steamrolled and indeed did fabulously. I'm just glad to see Brock get some respect for once. I've been complaining a lot that being that he was a GL, he ought to be shown in a better light, and now I finally feel vindicated. If we think about it (we being Brock fans], the fact that Marshtomp had to inexplicably lose his ability mid-battle for May to have a chance says a heck of a lot, even though it's lazy writing and just plain bad form storywise. I've missed Gym Leader Brock. A lot. While I'm aware we may never see him seriously battle again, or for a very long time, I'm going to remember this as a must-see episode.

    Saw the episode and all I got to say is this:

    *Takeshi is as "funny" as a sleeping Metapod
    *Bonsly is the most awful baby that I ever seen
    *Bonsly´s appeal was a copy from Haruka´s Skitty that was a copy from Ayane´s Delcatty
    *I would preferred to see Combusken battling and Eevee appealing, doing what?, hey, Haruka is the co-ordinator, she has to be the creative
    *However, the battle was great, Marshtomp is the only Pokémon that I like from Takeshi´s party ... but Kasumi would handle it better and Haruka´s strategy was sweet
    *This episode put Pokémon in first place in anime ratings in Japan

    Question

    I thought Absol are not allowed in contests?

    With it's negative reputation, I would not have been surprised.


    Side notes: I have never seen anyone use it or move sets/strategies for it.

    (I believe it's the only pokemon of the week that has no contest info)

    Why the hell would Absol not be allowed (note the correct spelling) in contests? They aren't even legendary. -_-

    It's probably because all the support beams in the building would mysteriously collapse.

    Jeez, May battles that guy AGAIN?

    The first time he showed up was in the Hoenn Harley Contest. He was the guy who used Suskrit against May, and the one where Harley told May that Suskrit was super-slow.

    That guy with the hat must love getting his ass handed to him by a girl, because we know May just keeps kicking his butt.

    I don't say Dig's wrong with Eevee. Just that I like a special attack better

    Your other choices for a non-generic Eevee attack? Iron Tail or Toxic. Trust me, Dig and Shadow Ball were good choices.

    I would pick Toxic, it's so brutally evil.

    All the competitors in this contest seem more newbish to me than the usual fare. Maybe the image of the Raticate biting that stick is still in my mind?

    Brock still knows how to kick butt and take names. Now, to fix that scoring system...

    He speaks the truth. Marshtomp was owning Eevee most of it, so Eevee should be out of the game before it got a chance to make it's "come back".



    End of post.

    Seriously?

    Wow, the Japanese fans must've been just as excited to see Brock doing something as we were.

    His face also appeared in another Kanto Contest screen too, along with the Azurill guy. One of the Kanto Harley episodes I think.

    I guess they're following May around. o_o

    Maybe they're closet May-fanboys.

    Well, May isn't the only travelling coordinator, so it's at least somewhat logical.

    As soon as possible, IMO >=0 More Poliwrath in animé says I.

    Speaking of recurring filler characters, isn't the man to the right of May that guy Phantom_Bugsy likes....Caden, is it?

    "Here we GO!"

    Someone seriously needs to shoot Lillian in the face the next time she says that >.> She actually says that at least 3 times EVERY Contest episode. I mean, at least Vivian had some fresh material every once and a while.

    God I hope 4Kids changes that sentence when they dub the Battle Frontier. "Ready, Set, GO!", "Let's BEGIN!", anything D:


    On the episode itself, I rather enjoyed it. It was nice to see Brock get some decent screen time [his Pokemon as well], and the episode itself was fun to watch.

    I'm really starting to like Eevee. It's wins are believable, it's attacks well taught, it's like the writers are fixing the mistakes they made with Squirtle on it. Not to mention it's adorable <3

    I personally think the outcome of the battle was believable [and that's not my May bias talking]. Both May and Brock were really low on their Contest points, and no one was KOed. It was a completely fair and interesting battle in which May made more use of her time.

    Brock rushing into the Contest Hall and back again with his Co-Ordinator card was hilarious. Another thing I enjoyed about this episode is that Pokemon that needed screen time got it. Raticate, Absol, Brock's Marshtomp, Squirtle *attacked by everyone on this forum* [joking!], even Manectric and Sableye make still-shot appeals.

    Very well done.
