Performance level I think I will say Piplup was the best, Buneary was in the middle and then Ambipom as the worst one.
I feel Ambipom just took advantage of Buneary's last battle. It ended Buneary's work and then it got whooped pretty easily by Lucario.
I remember how people said that dawn was going to get beaten badly. While Dawn lost, she went down with a fight.

I'm happy Dawn lost. She needs to realize that she needs to train more if she is going to win..
I'm having star wars flash backs every time I see lucario make those blue glowing bones.
Ambipom was the only one I knew would win a battle, as she was the only one who knew what she was doing.
What's this? Piplup was in his Pokeball during part of the episode? Now, let's just hope he STAYS in there from now on. I'm getting sick of Piplup trying to act like a mascot.

I don't EV train, I don't breed my way to perfection, I don't use cheating devices to play the game for me and I don't spend ages hunting pokemon for battling online. If you agree then C+P this to your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)
Yay! Buneary was used in this episode. Even if it didn't pull of a win, at least it put up a fight (especially since we haven't seen it in a major battle since its first contest I believe). Imo, I think Buneary did a bit better than Ambipom considering Ambipom just finished what Buneary started but then got knocked out pretty quickly by Lucario. Speaking of Lucario...
Wow, the writers are totally making Lucario so awesome. The Star Wars Bone Rush, the Wolverine Metal Claw, the Kamehamaha/Hadoken Aura Sphere, and the electrifying explosive Force Palm! Lucario really looked like an awesome pokemon this episode.
^ Wow, you're right. That Force Palm did look like something from DBZ. Lucario seems like it got the warrior treatment with its moves and battling style.
Anyway, I forgot to talk about Staravia. I'm so happy it got to learn Brave Bird. We haven't seen it do anything useful and it seems like Veilstone has treated it well!
Poor Ambipom, she kicked but at Ash's Gym Battles, but did bad with Dawn.
Team Galactic conquers all
buneary did pretty good considering its type disadvantage and its lack of expirience, it i think this is the first time the swirly-spinning dodge has failed anyone
Wow, Dawn sucks at almost everything.
What attack was Staravia trying to learn? Brave bird or sky attack?
^ It was Brave Bird.
Which I'm so happy Staravia's learning. From the episode, it really looks like a powerful attack.
Seriously! She's only won one ribbon, and it's been ages since she even got past the preliminary rounds.Wow, Dawn sucks at almost everything.
If you ask me, I think Staravia will evolve soon. Did you ever notice how the only three Pokemon to ever evolve in the series were Starly, Bonsly, and Aipom. And two of the three evolved before Ash even had his first badge!
I seriously didn't get how that relates to the rest of the posts....
Anyway, moving on.... I see buizel pulling a corphish, especially since floatzel has that "look" that totally belies Buizel's persona... You know, creepy and smiling (as creepy as a water weasel can get, thats not much I know). It's just a feeling.....
And no evos for the time being, I think the next change will be ages for now.
Yup ppl, we have oficially entered the PLOT!!!!!! :O
Guys, there is time for Dawn to win more ribbons and for more pokemon to evove later in this very long saga. Dawn has to win four ribbons in the time that Ash obtains five more badges, so either contests become more spread out or she has more losses than May- the writers chose the latter option and they've handled it very well, and that way allows for more rivals and more purposes for non-gym towns. As for evolution- Turtwig has only had about 65 episodes and three gyms in its present form, and will clearly have a pivotal role in the next gym. Chimchar has only just joined Ash's team and is still adapting to his new trainer's approach to battles, and the same goes for Buizel. Staravia won't evolve for a while, methinks, as I see him taking down Fantina's Drifblim.
