    I really never saw this coming for Ash. Paul catching Gliscor was pretty obvious, since it was the point of the episode and all. I hope that Gligar evolves eventually, as he'll be crucial against Byron and Volkner. Any fate for Gliar would be strange because of the pure unpredictability of it. I wonder how long Gligar will stay a Gligar for...

    I think Gravy just killed his own joke. Unless, of course, he was cleverly mimicking the wannabe's that overuse it to no end, like yours truly.

    Normally I'm not opposed to captures, but I see many more negatives than positives coming out of this capture. First and foremost, this marks the first moment that Ash has had two flying types on his team at the same time, and now that all focus will likely shift to training Gligar. Everyone's already said what this means for our poor deranged current bird, so I don't have to repeat it. Second, I like a little variety between Ash and his rival's team. They now have TWO Pokemon from the same evolution line on their main teams. Unless the writers really want Gliscor vs. Gliscor in the Sinnoh League, I'm hoping they take the Heracross route by having him Oak this sucker in favor of a different 6th Pokemon.

    And you know I just had to get this post in here before Serebii yelled at me for not discussing the actual episode, which I will be doing later today likely.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    No it's not. Ash had Charizard and Pidgeotto at the end of the Indigo League.

    I don't really care in this case cause it can't suck as bad as Staravia's does and plus it's a slap in the face to all who wanted him to get that dumb hippo who needs to be shot with a 12 gauge shotgun so i'll look the other way this once.

    Sides Gligar is an alright pokemon as well, Morisson's did some massive damage in the hoenn league so why wouldn't it be a good pokemon for Ash to use.

    As for an evolution, I don't see it happening. Gliscor looks too scary for Ash but then again, so did Glalie.
    Hey scaring people rocks, more power to it to evolve.

    We pretty much know Ash won't get a Torterra, due to Paul having one
    Rubbish. So we’re supposed to assume this new Gligar is just going to stay a Gligar because Shinji has a Gliscor?


    Being a torterra, Turtwig couldn't move as much as normally does, unless it has rollar skates on.
    Again, you have no idea whether or not it would go down this way. We’ve seen Torkoal jumping hundreds of feet into the air and launching itself from walls, and for a long time people in general expected Sceptile to be more power and less speed. This wasn’t the case, however.
    Even if Torterra were slower than Ash’s pokémon…does it honestly matter? I’d have thought giving him something he’s had little experience with would only serve to help develop his skills further.

    It was more of an intended murder on my part. And quite frankly, you're pretty much one of the only people who have been able to pull it off, so I shall have no talk of Suikun comparing himself to the commoners. Hmph.

    even if gligar evolves--i dont see that happening with Paul around. That would be pointless in the way that they already got Paul's gliscor to showcase one--they hardly need to evolve Ash's gligar. besides as serebii says, Ash got a stupid one-so, it would need some serious training before its ready to evolve.
    one thing I would like to ask though--- do u people think Gligar is the last pokemon that ash catches this gen??

    Considering Paul might not even keep his i'm doubtful of that, heck i'm doubtful either way since they wouldn't had given it to him if it wasn't going to at some point.

    As for Turtwig though it's chances of becoming Torterra have been lowered even more, though it not like most expected it to become one anyway.

    Considering that its potential move set could include the elemental fangs, poison jab, swords dance, slash, night slash and x-scissor, I wouldn't worry about Turtwig or the magic Muku getting the shaft, because aside from sharing the same types, the simularities are few in number. Its sorta like how people don't quite realise how different Infernape and Lucario could be due to the different battling styles.

    I'm seriously happy about this capture. It's completely random and as others have said, its broken all patterns completely, so there really isn't much to complain about... filling the 6th space so soon does kinda imply another one or two captures before the league, though.

    ^Gotta agree that I'm also happy about this capture. It's just so surprising, and it would honestly be a little bit boring if he got a Riolu or Lucario instead.

    Also, Gligar is so cool! Just rewatched From Brags To Riches! Morrison's Gligar ruled that battle.

    Also, judging from the pictures it looked like Gligar was ABNORMALLY large compared to the normal size. So IF Gligar evolves, Ash will have a Glalie sized Gliscor.

    Meh, maybe Staravia will evolve eventually along with Gligar and then we'll have Ash deal with something similar to Charizard and Tracey's Scyther.

    I had to discust this episode, since (no offence to anyone intended) this episode clearly discusted me....

    And while I am quite peeved that the weekly 'ASH WILL CATCH!' crew were apparantly correct this time around, there's a lovely silver lining that will hopefully make such speculation cease. Of course, they could always move on to Brock or Hikari, but don't tell THEM that!
    Well, out of all those tries theid eventually get one right....

    I wanna see it, cause Gligar is one of my favo's and i'm glad Ash catched it.
    Gligar is not poyson, and bulbasaur is going to sue you with the lawiers he hired using the embassadors budget.

    Staravia, Buizel, Turtwig, Chimchar and probably Gligar. This may be the best team that Ash had since his Johto days.

    That suprised me, when I heard Paul was in the episode I thought he would end up capturing Gliscor, but Ash Captured Gligar. I definetly didnt see that coming

    Meaning you can update yoursig now. And I think Gligar will evolve only if Paul releases his

    Wow, just checked the character Bios on the main site. Ash getting a Johto Poke? Well, that does it, at this point any Pokémon is fair game. Heck, now he has a full team. I gotta say, this is by far the most surprising event. Two captures in one episode.

    When the fans persist in saying that someone captures a Pokémon, it can happen, even at the most ironic of times. And to think, the Gligar were actually causing problems. So capturing Gliscor was partially a good thing.

    Wow, he has a full time before the 3rd gym. Who knows, he might be oaking quite a few Pokémon this season at this rate. And talk about unpredictable. Haha!!

    I am definitely gonna be enjoying this season.

    Plus, he'll have something against Volkner, the 4th Hokage rip-off.

    Gligar, like Buizel will be a big member to the team against Maylene and Volkner. Speaking of....

    Wait! The difference between Volkner and Yodaime. They must be distant twins lol

    Who knows, judging from his profile Gligar isn't very good at flying, but maybe by Volkner he'll be the Swellow of the Sinnoh team, whereas Staraptor will be the Sceptile of Ash's Flying types.

    I'll admit, I love Gligar, and I'm happy.

    I honestly would be completely satisfied if his team was this for the rest of Sinnoh (with evolution, naturally), but I'll say I don't think an Oaking in the near future is impossible.

    But still, Gligar.

    OMG I never noticed the similarities!

    I hope Naruto does not make a cameo in pokemon.... As much of a fan of both I am, Naruto's believe it will quickly rub off on Ash, I can even imagine turtwig beating torterra after ash yelling "You can do it, BELIEEEEEVE IIIIIIT!!!!!!!!"

    Which he hasn't said (Excluding flashbacks) for four or five seasons. It was dropped very quickly.

    Gligar is so freaking adorable! ^o^
