    Ash Loses, again. Torkoal is used, thank goodness, and I believe I heard that Torkoal uses a new attack.

    Now heres my 2 cents:
    Its great to show Ash losing twice in a row to the same trainer, something like that has never happened to him, and it is just so refreshing to show that Ash isn't as powerful as he is made out to be.

    So let's review.

    -Lucky actually BATTLING and putting up a good fight.
    -Cotoise battles and is not OHKO'd.
    -Satoshi loses a second time to an official opponent; a first ever.

    This episode is made of win and good.

    I feel sorry for Torkoal but overjoyed that it actually (to my knowledge) put up some sort of fight. When I see the episode I'll be able to judge myself, and I pray that it doesn't get the short end of the stick.

    It wasn't until his third attempt that he got the badge though.

    Torkoal battling is great. I'm glad that not only did he battle better than what Sceptile did, but Torkoal also learned one of its best attacks, Heat Wave! I feel proud for it. Aipom at Oak's, I can guess that equals trouble. Poor Corphish, it lost though. Now that Torkoal knows a new attack and is stronger than before, it seems that Corphish hasn't improved. It's strong and powerful but no new attacks or any new battle strategies for Corphish. Anyway, I liked this episode, hopefully Ash keeps Torkoal until he gets ready for Shinou.

    ^ Yeah, shame that Aipom was the pokemon being transfered to Oak's. It kinda should've been Corphish, seeing as how it lost to Chansey. But heck, you got to give Torkoal credit. It battled a legendary and even though it lost, Torkoal put up an awesome fight. Maybe now Torkoal is becoming more of a powerhouse like Ash's other pokemon. Speaking of Torkoal...Isn't wierd that when Ash doesn't train his pokemon which are at Oak's, they tend to get stronger when they're called back (Heracross, Phanpy which evolved, Torkoal). Anyway, again, glad that Torkoal had a good fight, now only if Corphish can improve.

    I can't really help but laugh at that development as well, i mean Sceptile couldn't even knock Regirock off his feat, and Torkoal just kept on doing it with Body Slam to Registeel, and i'm suprised nobody has noticed the fact that Torkoal inadvertainly used Cyndaquil's statregy from the Jasmine battle in jouto "flaming sandstorm twister." but unlike Steelix it wasn't enough this time.

    Aipom at Oak's, I can guess that equals trouble.
    Good i hope it stays there.

    Poor Corphish, it lost though. Now that Torkoal knows a new attack and is stronger than before, it seems that Corphish hasn't improved. It's strong and powerful but no new attacks or any new battle strategies for Corphish. Anyway, I liked this episode, hopefully Ash keeps Torkoal until he gets ready for Shinou.
    Seriously losing to a Chansey is a big blow to Corphsish's pride, and as much as i'd like Torkoal to stay Ash will probably Oak the poor thing again at the begining of the next episode.

    Pics up on filb.de. Can't believe Chansey actually won. Two losses in the same episode is a major blow for Ash. This is one hyperactive Joy, for sure. Anyone care to explain what the photo albums at the beginning were for?
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Why'd he leave everyone's favorite monkey of joy? Why couldn't he have dumped something else? Anyway, it's good to see Ash lose every once in a while.

    I want to know why May was sulking outside by the tree by herself. What was her dialouge in that scene?

    The camera also focuses on May frowning when Ash loses, what is this about?

    WOW! 3 losses in a row including the chansey battle is definetly first and makes you wanna watch the anime much more. I remember when it made ash all depressed when he lost once like when he lost to Whitney

    Wait a minute Aipom was Oak'd? WTF? Why did he catch the damn thing if it was just Oak'd right now? And at least Torkoal squeezed in its first good battle

    It's probably temporary. Stop b!tching about it.

    Ash did much better this time around with no evil spirit to play with his strategy. Torkoal finally learns Heat Wave, and it looks great(better than the one Clark's Charizard used). But Brandon won based on skill alone, using the Lock-On/Zap Cannon combo(using its paralysis effect to slow down Torkoal), in addition to what seems to be the debut of Superpower. I'm just sad that it was Torkoal and not Cyndaquil(no offense to Torkoal, I'm glad it got to appear).

    Also, Chansey was just awesome. Once again ignoring low stats helped for a change--as we know, Chansey has the second lowest Attack of any Pokémon and the suckiest Defense. And was that BIDE that it used for the finishing blow?! NICE!

    you have to admit though it's funny how Sceptile was only able to force Regirock to it's knees while Torkoal kept knocking Registeel over, and even funnier was the fact that it used the effect of the Zap Cannon to paralyze it back as well, to bad though it lost in the end, but like i said in the spec thread we now know that Brandon's favorite strategy is to use Lock-on and follow up with a powerful attack which makes me wonder who gets to go up against Regice now as they are going to most likely survive a Sheer Cold barrage to win.

    Also, Chansey was just awesome. Once again ignoring low stats helped for a change--as we know, Chansey has the second lowest Attack of any Pokémon and the suckiest Defense. And was that BIDE that it used for the finishing blow?! NICE!
    Bide or Solarbeam, but man i would not wanna be Corphish right now.

    Why is so worried about Aipom? I know it is cool and all but heck, Ash might get it back for Shinou or Aipom was a capture so the fillers it was in could amuse us and get some comedy in before the serious matches against Brandon. Anyway, Torkoal showing no mercy to Registeel was awesome! This its shining moment and I can't help but really proud for it. As for Nurse Joy, her character was very hyper and a little bit more goofy. It's like she's a fangirl for Ash and May. Her Chansey was also pretty cool too.

    As if there wasn't *enough* to be curious about in this ep, now we get this little mystery. Maybe she's worried about how Ash is going to able to handle Brandon the next time around?

    Looks like I was dead right on the portrayal of Brandon by the writers...they really are making Ash sing for his supper in this arc. Something I can't help but to ask, though; was any backstory given as to how Brandon *got* those Regis in the first place, or are they---the writers---saving it for the next go-round(or not at all, which would stink)?

    For some reason, I'm starting to get a "Martin Jigmar" vibe off of Brandon. (shrugs)

    Cushioning that horrible defense is the second-highest stamina count in all of pokemon existence(and no legendary even comes close in that category). Put them together and Bide becomes a lethal weapon against anyone with only physical attacks in their bag of tricks. Throw in a hefty Special Defense and a decent Special Attack(plus the movepool to utilize them), and you've got a pokemon that can *really* hold her own in a match, even in the face of bruisers like Mewtwo, Slaking, and Rayquaza.

    Not really, since Regice can't even *learn* Sheer Cold. Lock-On + Blizzard + Zap Cannon, however, is an all-too-likely possibility, and one that leaves the bulk of Ash' pokemon quite literally out in the cold. How Ash gets out of *that* conundrum should be most interesting to see.

    I hear you. Looks like poor old Corphish has got *quite* a bit of work to do...

    Oh I'm not upset Aipom was Oak'd, more like confused. It doesn't make much sense. And am I the only one who thinks its sketchy that Nurse Joy had pictures of May and Ash?
