    Tag Battle! The Finals!

    Its time for the finals of the Tag Tournement. With Ash, Dawn, Brock & Paul all into the finals, the gang are to have their toughest battles yet as they battle eachother. However, with Ash choosing Paul's newly released and his recently obtained Pokémon, Chimchar, could Ash be about to have the hardest battle yet by using a new Pokémon at such a crucial stage?

    So, i was right about Paul giving his Soothe Bell to Ash since he doesn't believe in being friends with pokemon. Lets see whether i am right about the other thing that i said.

    This is what i think (I posted this on another thread),

    Now, if Ash & Paul wins the final, i don't think Paul would be keeping the soothe bell i think he would give Ash his one too so Ash would be left with two soothe bell's. Now i think Ash might give one to Dawn for Buneary & if he keeps the other one i think he might use it on Chimchar to be friendly with it or could use on a future pokemon which needs happiness to evolve like Riolu, Chingling.

    Now, the soothe bell in my opinion (if Ash gets them) has increased the chance of Ash getting Riolu which means Lucario.

    This episode is great, i just have to see it.
    Poor Staravia didn't get a chance to do a thing. I hope he gets to do something in the 3rd gym.

    No, it was damaged a bit by Hyper beam, but that attack KO'd Honoka's Farfetch'd, who was in the battle.. for 10 seconds.

    Can anybody tell me if, by the chance, the ending has been updated with Chimchar in Ash's team?.

    No, since they usually don't update till the next week after a capture, and Chimchar didn't join till this week.

    I just saw the episode pics on Pokemon-Safari.

    There's a scene where Ash talks to Prof. Oak just after capturing Chimchar. What did they say? Does Prof. Oak know about Paul?

    Ash/Paul vs. Dawn/Kouhei is probably my favorite match since Paul vs. Roark. It had great animation, battle direction, and didn't feel cheap. Definitely a worthy way to end this three-parter. Elekid evolving came out of left field with zero speculation towards it, especially considering how Elekid wasn't shown in the preview. Nice and unexpected. It'll be a bit annoying if both Paul and Gary have Electivire, so I'm actually hoping it'll stay Electabuzz for quite a while. If I have any complaints, it's that Staravia got the royal shaft...again. The poor thing didn't even land a single hit and was subject to the abuse of Torterra.

    Paul tossing Ash the Soothe Bell can be taken two ways - First, it could be perceived as the beginning of a growing respect for Ash, feeling as though he is deserving of the item. On the other hand, it seems Paul really only entered the tournament in order to hone his Pokemon's battling skills, and he really couldn't care less for the prize (or for Chimchar). Either way, I don't see this rivalry being resolved any time soon. That's a good thing, mind you.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    In regards to Staravia, just be glad he STAYED on the field instead of fainting.

    Wow! Saw the pics and it's sad that Staravia didn't really do anything but at least The Dawn/Kouhei and Ash/Paul battle however was pretty awesome, especially with Elekid evolving! With Ash now having two soothe bells, I wonder what he'll do with it now though.

    Anyway, awesome episode with a great final battle.

    He gave one to Dawn, but I think the one he got from Paul may foreshadow a Lucario in his team.

    I don't think he gave it to her though, she was mearly looking at it.

    Anyway, i'm suprised Torterra's hyper beam and leaf storm attacks didn't kill Brock and Honoka's pokemon(Hyper beam shook the stadium) and it seems that only a fully evo'ed pokemon is gonna have a chance of dropping that thing in combat.

    Lol at Buizel after getting hit by Thunder too, wonder where it's "strength" went though since it hasn't won a fight since the lucien episode when it ko'ed Turtwig.

    Well Electabuzz probably has had more training than Pikachu or something.

    Pikachu kicked Buizel's butt both times they went at it though.

    I'm seriously starting to think those who said one would overshadow the other in terms of Buizel and Piplup were right, Piplup is clearly overshadowing Buizel big time.

    So Staravia is always used in battle to develop other people? That's...weird. First it was to show off how fast Gardenia's Turtwig was and now to show how Paul doesn't care about the pokemons of his partner. Staravia is being shafted by turtles!!!!

    I guess my favorite part is the fact Paul has an Electabuzz. Now I guess we know we will see some Electivire by the end of Sinnoh.

    And Buizel... poor little thing. Ash has Staravia who is weak, a Turtwig who is boring and a Pikachu who is far from being as powerful as it was. How many more weaklings he's going to have?

    I'm still hoping for some Staraotor and Infernape power since I'm sure there's not going to be a Torterra for Ash.

    I too would like to know Paul's dialog in the episode. Especially at the end of the battle with Dawn and her partner. He says something, and then looks over to see Ash bonding with Chimchar.

    I think Air Slash

    And I noticed that too, I wonder if Aipom will get Jeoulous of Ash and Chimchar, this might spark a trade?

    Torterra's Hyper Beam made me think of a nuclear bomb blast.

    Turtwig being boring does not reflect its strength. Pikachu's power resets at the beginning of every region and It's not like Pikachu's been getting knocked out by weak pokemon or something.

    Staravia didn't even get to battle in this episode so no one should call it weak based on what they see/saw in this particular episode.

    I still think the bird has alot of potential and it will get stronger.

    Turtwig has had quite a few impressive wins and I dont think anyone should argue with the point that Turtwig's wins have been better then what Treeko/Chikorita/Bulbasaur had at this point in their respective journey's.

    Well Treeko did beat a Hariyama, but Turtwig had quantity.

    ^ Which IMO wasn't all that impressive. I know why it kept hitting its feet but that strategy was so boring. That gym battle wasn't entertaining.
    It was when Treeko evolved that I really started to like it, because lets face it Grovyle>Treeko anyday.

    Anyways I dont want to turn this into a Turtwig vs. Treeko thread so I'll stop. If any of you guys want to talk about this more you can PM me.

    Elekid evolving was a surprise, I didnt see that coming. It was sort of disappointing not to see Aipom battle since I like the monkey. However I like chimchar also so that was fine.

    Havent seen the episode yet so can't really give an overall judgement of this episode yet.
