    Well, I suppose Paul was bound to come from one hell of a powerful family. The Electabuzz thing is kinda weird, but if Reiji sticks around for the rest of the arc there's bound to be more on Electabuzz to come. Who knows, could Electabuzz be the first pokemon to be shown WILLINGLY abandoning their trainer, and adding insult to injury by joining Paul's brother? Paul's Honchkrow and Magmar are cool additions, and I'm sure we'll see some cool battles with those guys.
    By the way, what's with all the ursaring hatred? I like him personally- not everyone's team has to be full of Sinnoh pokemon- Brock, Nando and Kenny all have pokemon who not only aren't from this generation but aren't going to evolve into any either.
    I'm really hope I'm right about Electabuzz choosing to leave Paul's ownership- that's one thing we would definitely have not seen coming back in Episode 3!

    It's not that weird that he'd let his powerhouse in training, like Ash does with Charizard.

    Buizel's obviously going to get the spotlight in the battle against Crasher, and some of Ash's Pokemon need this one more than it anyway.

    Now Paul needs a Water-Type to counter Buizel. I suspect either Feraligatr, Crawdaunt, or Gyarados for that. THough Weavile might cover it KINDA... :S

    Though, seeing how Ash's plaque containing the symbols is way back in Kanto, I really doubt that Paul would even consider believing that Ash could even consider competing in it. That and Paul would probably try and use an excuse like: "You probably just got lucky", or "Did you have to bribe them or something". Basically, Paul would never believe in something like that.

    Plus the fact that they're all actually Reiji's, and not Shinji's as some (myself included) initially thought.

    Well did Ash mention about seeing Lucario previously.
    The reason why i think Electabuzz was acting that way was i think because it was afraid of Reiji. Also the way Paul defeated Lucario, i think he might make a mental note that Lucario is a weak pokemon. If this is true, then the chance of Ash getting a Lucario will increase more.
    Also when Jessie tried to lure Lucario with a chocolate bar it kind off reminded me of the movie where Max tried to cheer Lucario with Chocolate & at the end Aaron & Lucario sharing a Chocolate in the credits.

    Positively sterling logic there, chum.

    Actually I think that was Electabuzz's true personality since he is with Reiji. Around Paul, like his other Pokemon, it's a mindless powerhouse.

    ^ Well thats the attack which caused Turtwig to fall asleep. I don't think it could be Yawn, but i think there is a high possibility that the attack is Secret Power.

    Edit:- I just noticed this, When Maylene & Lucario are having there fight, the background music is alot similar to the background music we had in movie 8 for Lucario's fight.

    I'm still not keen on Reiji's design. He's a male version of that freaky girl from Croagunk's debut episode. As anticipated, we got some good Movie 8 BGM with Lucario, and I'm glad Ash was able to recognize what Lucario was before scanning it. Gardenia may have had an entertaining personality, but I wouldn't say she was really developed. Maylene looks to be receiving actual development.

    The battle between Ash and Reiji was pretty good, in spite of Muku.BIRD getting shot out of the sky by an unholy beam of light from a mutant stomach. When Bibarel started glowing purple and demonic green flames arose around it, I seriously started thinking it was summoning its underworld army of Bidoofs, even though that joke died a year ago.

    Personally, that fourth pic intrigues me so much more.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    wow, electabuzz looks like a completely different pkmn, if not stated in the episode there is no way i could believe it was Paul's

    This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciatted starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter,

    Well i also liked how they showed the effect of increase in Defences when Swalot used Stockpile & how the effect wore off once Spit Up was used.
    During the fight of Staraptor & Pikachu when Staraptor used the Brave Bird attack, after the attack was completed was Staraptor effected by Pikachu's static ability or was it the recoil from using the Brave Bird attack (i mean the blue spark it had after completing the attack)

    Edit:-

    ^It looked more like the recoil effect, since it sounded like it was in pain for a split second after the impact.

    Ash hasn't flipped at the sight of a Pokemon like he did with Lucario since Torkoal. You can tell he wants one. Its just a matter of if the writers want to give him one. Also, the fact that Gligar hasn't appeared in the opening credits yet leads me to believe that he won't be on the team for long, so it may open up a spot on Ash's roster.

    Well i agree with you about the Lucario thing. I really feel the way Ash reacted to seeing Lucario i think it points that Ash might get one.

    Also, the fact that Gligar hasn't appeared in the opening credits yet leads me to believe that he won't be on the team for long, so it may open up a spot on Ash's roster.
    Well if you see the opening carefully you will notice that neither Ambipom is added in the opening (it still has Aipom with Dawn). This i think like many others on this forum think is because they are soon going to change the Opening theme. Also if you check the Ending theme you will see that Gligar has been added in it.

    *Slams face against screen* What?! Are you serious?! That is actually Paul's Electabuzz?! How did it become friendly all of a sudden?!

    Huh. Speaking of which, Reiji looks like... that one filler character from that Ponyta episode in Kanto. Must be the hair style and eyebrows. Eh, I might be wrong.

    it was not friendly...it just laughed a bit(though in a sarcastic sortta way!). in case u did not know it starts of by zapping piplup just for the fun of it. so u see, it has not really changed. though might have gone through a slight mood change from evolution.
