(My post from another site that relates to this. . . )
Wow. . . .I don't see how you all think THIS Buizel is perfect for Ash.
The only thing I think that this Buizel has in common with Grovyle is that they are both strong and train themselves. . . .Thats it. Grovyle was a calm, cool pokemon that kicked ***, this Buizel seems to be a rude ***-hole that kicks ***. (I call taking other's fishing rods, trying to fight anything around and attacking fainted/ laid out pokemon or pokemon that haven't even left their trainers sholder rude, ***-hole like beheavor. He even pushed Pip down in the preview for the next one. . . a team mate damn it! )
I really see Dawn having problems with him latter on until he gets with the program and shows some control.
. . . And why the would they trade Buizel and Aipom after this? This is GREAT character development! And at the end of the day Buizel got his *** kicked (and saved) by Dawn and her contast tactics which showed him that she aint a push-over AND that she cared about him. He seems to respect her more than the others now (Im guessing this because he actually wanted to battle her and Pip after they saved him). Seeing Dawn turn his style into something less brutish and more contast-ish is going to be interesting along with the semi power stuggle between them.
And this "wifi in the games mean that they might trade" BS needs to stop. Trading has been important in the games sence the first one yet the anime has always done it's own thing. Why would that change now? Why would Buizel want to go to a trainer who had his chance (with his strongest pokemon) to catch him but couldn't well another trainer shut him down by using her head with tactics that landed him on his ***? Because gym pokemon are stronger and contast pokemon are weaker (even if there are bad asses like Flygon and Absol out there doing contast)? Because they fight in a way that he is use to (well he got pimp slapped by a contast pokemon who used tactics that lead to him getting KOed. . . meaning that said pokemon with said tactics was STRONGER than him and his tactics)?
I will say this agian. . . I don't see it happening.
(Also, wouldn't wi-fi trading in the anime be best seen with Ash trading with, sayyyyyy, someone like May or Misy who is in a different regoin than he is? Really. . . )
