Or maybe it'll just be like Pikachu mastering Iron Tail, with nothing else of extreme consequence happening in the meantime.

Personally, I'd go with the first one.

I get the feeling that Turtwig might not evolve. That is why Turtwig is learning energy ball which is a very good grass type move, better than most Turtwig can learn. Especially now that Ash has Chimchar which I think is going to evolve into Infernape. This conversation is probably best suited in another part of the forums. So lets say I am glad that Turtwig is learning energy ball.
