I'm so mad she beat Drew. I can't see any non cheap way she could have defeated two big powerhouses with a friggin Squirtle and Combusken. Something tells me it was a real Deux Ex type win, and that really makes me mad
I can buy Combusken being a match for Absol, no problem. But Flygon, if anything, comes across as even more powerful than Absol. It's like the writers wanted a Combusken VS Absol showdown, realised, "oh damn, that big swoopy dragon's in the way... quick, get rid of it!", and made Squirtle zap Flygon out of the sky in one hit. Bah.
Or maybe I should watch the battle first before ranting.
Sadly, Combusken learning Overheat (it doesn't learn that move naturally, does it?) sounds as though it might be almost as deus ex-ish as Squirtle learning Ice Beam. I hope that isn't the case.
Uhh Sky Uppercut<<<<Absol
I am so happy that May FINALLY beat Drew. It doesn't bother me at all that Squirtle (probably) took down Flygon. It is a perfectly plausible win, and I feel bad for the little blue guy.
Overheat??? Jeez just put another spike in poor Torkoal's heart. It should have been Blaze.
I don't see the problem with Aipom. However I'm curious to know how it battles.
Saori has Pidgeot=Awesome. Too bad we'll never see her again.
So May has improved. Top 4 is pretty impressive.
If that was the case, you'd think they'd have Masquerain fight instead. Another thing, Combusken against Saori's powerful water arsenal isn't too smart. Oh well, the anime has never had type matter anyway.I can buy Combusken being a match for Absol, no problem. But Flygon, if anything, comes across as even more powerful than Absol. It's like the writers wanted a Combusken VS Absol showdown, realised, "oh damn, that big swoopy dragon's in the way... quick, get rid of it!", and made Squirtle zap Flygon out of the sky in one hit. Bah.
Rancid Meat that could be why they gave Saori a Pidgeot in an attempt to make us buy the fact that Combusken was a kinda good choice :/
Still waiting to watch it to see why everyone's ******.*EDIT* Uhh mad
But Flying > Fighting.Originally Posted by Torkoal Stu
...meh, let's just pray the writers aren't losing their logic of Pokemon.
Uh...no! Ice Beam is >>>>>Flygon. It has 4x weakness to it.Originally Posted by Judai Yuki
And, no offense, but Absol is not that strong of a Pokemon in the games.
The Game isn't a guide to the anime remember
I just thought of this:
By looking at the Top 16 Bracket the only way May and Drew would have fought would have been in the Top 4. Then May would have fought Saori in the final match, please someone correct me if I'm wrong because this is bugging me know.
So basically they decided to make her better then Ash, finishing in the Top 4 rather then the Top 8 again. Shows favoratisim for her doesn't.
Aipom being caught doesn't surprise me at all, just hope he has something that is being worth being caught for.

Anyone else kind of wish Saori battled with Lapras instead of Slowbro? I really wanted to see Lapras in a good battle.
I do Cybercybed, Lapras hasn't been seen in a good battle in a while
It hasn't had a decent battle "ever" as far as I can remember. O_o
EDIT: May cries!
I have no idea why she cries though, I don't think it's because she lost.
... Well, her eyes were watery somewhere in the episode. XDOriginally Posted by CyberCubed
^ I'm guessing that's after she beats Drew.
Heh, that was in the Drew match though, which she won, so I don't think she'd cry over that!Originally Posted by cold_katanagirl
I really hope she doesn't cry after losing to Saori though, she didn't cry when she lost the Hoenn GF. :/

YES. Ice Beam rocks and it beat Flygon. Woot! May beating Drew was totally expected, boohoo.
So Aipom was caught... I like him. He better be useful.
Anyone reckon the crying could be at Drews farewell? Its plausable.
Anyone know how long it'll take for this to be on youtube? I watched the previous episode today.
Blech, Focus Punch? I guess that makes it a genuinely useful Pokémon then. And it makes sense that it would use a punch attack with its tail...
I'm really glad with the whole Saouri thing. Lapras. Pidgeot. Great to see those two get some action.

Nah. Harley's ultimate plan would be to wait until the first shinou contest and then when May's battling drop down from the rafters dressed as Zeus and slap her opponent into submission.
