    Default Gathering the Gang of Four! (465)

    First Pokémon! Last Battle!

    It's time for Ash's 2nd Rematch against Brandon, a full 4 VS 4 Pokémon Battle. Calling upon his oldest Pokémon; Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charizard & Squirtle, Ash trains the four and prepares for the battle. However when he gets into the battle, the battle appears to be tougher than anticipated...

    Wha'...I was hoping for some detail on the episode...

    Anyays, how is it a bad title?

    When you think 'First Pokemon' the Kanto trio comes to mind. Pidgeot and Butterfree have long been forgotten by MANY fans across the Kanto and Kansai regions of Japan.

    Yeah but Butterfree and Pidgeot may have been his first Pokemon but really his first four main Pokemon that stayed on and did important things where Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charizard and Pikachu.

    Well also this Dusclops seems to take out Charizard, good on Brandon.

    Yeah. So, after that, Charizard and the others come...I think a good thing that could happen is that they get caught by team Rocket, and then Pidgeot and Butterfree come to help...that could bring the entire oldest team together...^_^

    Butterfree and Pidgeot won't show up...

    They probably forgot Satoshi. Butterfree is with his breeding partner somewhere with their thousand babies and Pidgeot is still probably protecting those weak Pidgey...

    For the last...3 years...or 6 years...or since Satoshi doens't seem to age, Pidgeot could of just been there for an hour.

    That would be strange yet funny.

    I don;t get that whole Pidgeot thing. Since he left it on the boarders of Pallet town so surly he must still see it araound. Or he could have left it at Oaks and let it fly off and check on the Pidgey once in a while. Strange.

    Anyways back on topic if its a 4 on 4 battle whats all this stuff about Ninijasks and Solrocks? I thought It was the 3 Regis and Dusclops vs Ash "1RST BY Deafult" team.

    That was people guessing. Brandon only uses one Regi in this battle, but we don't see those until the next episode

    The Regi thing was total speculation.

    You know, as the Regi's were shown, it just seemed like a no-brainer that Jindai would use his strongest monsters...

    Guessed the writers actually made something unpredictable...and then having Charizard lose?

    Wow, now that is what I call some crazy mojo from the writers. We really might have Satoshi and Haruka leaving...letting Takeshi be the lead star.

    This episode looks like it's going to be my favorate episode. I've seen some screenshots and it is just incredible. This is the trio I wanted to see return in Advanced Generation. Bulbasaur, Charizard and Squirtle together again.

    Charizard going down to Dusclops was both unpredictable and great writing. After seeing Charizard come back as the main Pokemon in the Clair, Gary, Harrison, and Noland battles, it was FANTASTIC to see the writers have Ash's trump card go down first.

    I love you writers, it is stuff like this which is truly good writing. Plus it gives more time for Squirtle to shine, dammit!

    I am very pleased with how the final battle is turning out so far, I hope the next part is very good!

    It seems Bulbasaur and Squirtle have surpassed Charizard.

    Bulbasaur is most likely going to beat Dusclops
    Squirtle will defeat whatever beats Bulbasaur

    After watching the episode dusclops and charizard BOTH were breathing heavy, meaning both were worn out. So if bulbasaur beats it that doesn't make it better then charizard. You cant use that logic, i'll give a few examples: Pikachu lost to masamunes steelix but Grovyle beats it now that DOESNT mean grovyle is better cuz grovyle loses to tysons metagross and pikachu beats it. You see torkoal and pikachu battled and weakened steelix for grovyle to finish it off. The same thing with Swellow and grovyle when they weakened metagross for pikachu to win.
    Charizard has battled dusclops and has drained alittle bit of its eneregy and dusclops IS tired. Therefore bulbasaur comes in fresh and can win. I know you said it SEEMS like that but get that idea out of your mind,lol.

    Okay so after watching the episode I can honestly say it was an awesome episode. Gave me alot of laughs.
    Charizard meeting Ash in the regular way by frying him but this time pikachu gets caught in it to.
    When there all catching the logs it seems like squirtle gets ahead of himself and misses the catch, lol. (the turtle is damn good, unlike some OTHER turtle we know).
    They make alittle bed (I think) and charizard gets in first only to have squirtle blast a water gun at it face. Charizard then gets up ready to strike but squirtles runs away then bulbasaur uses vine whip. Charizard dodges it and Oppps its slap pikachu in the face, ROFL.
    Bulbasaur appologizes though but pikachu tries to iron tail charizard but it misses. Charizard is mad and fries Ash and pikachu as well, now pikachu is Pi**ed off, Ash tells it to calm down but it just Zaps them all including squirtle and bulbasaur.
    When they all gater up the berries, its funny how pikachu uses quick attack and then stops and catchs two while on one foot, mad cute.
    The flashback of how Ash got them was really sweet it had me crying. *shot*
    Lol at Manene when it has its tounge sticking out while blasting off.

    The battle was good IMO.
    When charizard is confused or i dont know what happens to it cuz I have no clue what the attack is that leaves charizard immoblized. But we see Ash trying to snap him out of it, we get flashbacks of blaziken and articuno and charizard hears ash calling out to it and then snaps out of it ready to battle.
    Charizard and Dusclops exchange hits and then we see them BOTH breathing Heavy, while charizard had taken more hits until that point. Clearly that shows charizard packs quite the punch.
    Ash tells charizard to use steel wing which hits but then goes for seismic toss. My japanese is very limited but Im sure brock mentions at that point that dusclops is a ghost type and a fighting type attack wont effect it cuz dusclops just disappears. Brandon then uses shadowpunch and dusclops win.
    Overall a good battle Ash made a mistake by using seismic toss cuz thats what ended up screwing him over.
    Anyways the animation wasn't the greatest but still all the laughs I got and bonding with his trio again was rather nice. The charizard vs. dusclops battle was also good, overall i give it a 10/10.

    Havent seen the episode yet but after seeing the pics I can honestly say this looks to be a great episode. Ash, Pikachu, and the kanto trio getting to spend some time together is awesome. The flashbacks of how ash met them seems to be really nice. Cant wait to see the episode.

    Charizard going down was really unexpected, I was thinking it would get destiny bonded but that didnt happen. O well that doesnt make charizard weak or anything, dusclops was just stronger.

    Wow, I saw the pics and this is an amazing episode. Had some nice comedy moments and some good flashbacks.

    I found it funny where Charizard couldn't control his flames. Seems like kind of an emotional episode. I'm gonna have to watch this one for sure. The way Charizard went down, kinda hard to see after all he did.

    The animation kinda irked me though. Poor Charizard he just didnn't look right and same with Ash.

    Seeing Bulbasaur standing on two legs was kinda cool.

    Am I the only one who thinks these flashbacks of old episodes drawn like in new style look sort of out of place? Apart from the fact they risk continuity if they mess something up but whatever, not like the writters care abou contunity.

    Charizard did well though, but it has been asking for a loss for a while after taking down Articuno, you know, its just like make me lose because I beat a legendary. Well thats how I see it.

    Torkoal kicking a football was cooler than Bulbsaur standing [/bias]

    Anyone notice the error in the one flashback.

    Charizard battled Articuno in an open, barren field?

    yeah, and in that same shot, ash was wearing his old outfit...well, those are details of course, but still...

    and Charizard looked a bit weird...

    I just finished watching it, and I love it. it's a great episode, and I can't wait for the next one, which seems awesome...

    I liked the somewhat slower version of 'battle frontier' played in the background during the flashback scene (I think it's the best pokémon theme ever), which made this scene even better

    only 3 episodes left...if I'm correct...I hope we'll have more info on the cast for the next season soon...

    Those aren't screw ups. Just another art style. Its good but its just too different from the main style.
