    This is awesome.

    Despite the episodes title, Muku.Bird had all the spotlight and thank God.
    Pokemon: The Theme of Secrets


    At long last, I am returning with my Fan-Fic. Just need to find a better host. Blogger has done its course but I need just a little more recognition.

    I freaking HATE "Mega" Evolution.

    Isn't it?

    This is Chimchar's first important battle. After being caught nothing has happened to it. Even in the debut of Reiji they didn't let Chimchar battle (let's be honest, it was the most suitable pokemon to battle if we judge his story).

    Obviously there's time but after being caught I wanted to see it do something.

    Then again I'm going to believe what I said. I think they are just looking for the right timing to make the monkey shine. Kinda like what they are doing with Turtwig and the bird.

    Yeah, I'm sure Chimchar will kick *** at some point.

    Yeah, I mean we all know that the grass starter is ash's choice of pokemon and is used more often than others (bulbasaur appeared more often then any pokemon, except pika; chiko the same, and the only to evolve; I won't even say anything about treecko).

    This season Turtwig is often the pokemon ash sends out, but comparing to the others before, it is not as responsible for its teammates shaft as the other starters were. I mean we would barely see the dude out of a battle actually doing something if it were not for the energy ball training epis, he battles a lot to compensate its lack of personality.

    Personally I see this epi as a jumpboard to who became ashs next powerhouse, Buizel, and to show how powerful staravia really is (not to mention to teach ash what he was loosing for forgetting he owned it)

    I just got curous as to Gligars potential, frm now on refered to as "pinky".

    XD jk!

    Though some will be happy to note that i will not classify Buizel's water pulse as deus ex, simply because he did not win with it and I don't count ties as wins.

    Though this is getting to be abit rediculious, is Ash ever going to BEAT a gym leader on his first try, if this keeps up then i see no way in heck he's gonna be a match for paul at the league.
    i actually like what they're doing to ash and how he's having a harder time with the gym leaders this season that may be because i hate ash or because i love it allows more time for the gym leaders.

    I think the latter is more correct.

    Please tell me I'm not the only one who couldn't stop laughing at the confused Muku.BIRD being forced against its feathery will to bang its head against the floor repeatedly. I replayed that scene 5 times, I swear.

    Glad to see Buizel's return to its badass form for the first time since...its debut. In spite of the destruction of the roof only for it to start raining being a little too convenient (you would think these gyms' roofs would built to withstand random nonsensical explosions like that), this was a great battle. Muku.BIRD got two very solid victories under its belt, and even Chimchar got some decent blows in, for those worried. On the technical front, the BGM was great with the expected Movie 8 fluff for Lucario, while not even the animation was that bad, even for a Shimura episode.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Heh, I found it amusing to see that the first one and half pages or so in this topic was filled with false info.

    Anyways, Water Pulse was expected. What was not expected was it being a tie battle. And another reference to contests, by now, it is pretty safe to assume that contests will be back. Although Buizel pulling off a combo move was pretty awesome I must say.

    It was good to see mukkubird win twice, but I was just a little annoyed at the recycling of images of mukkubird flapping himself near the roof like seven times.

    seriously...

    The music just have to say was delicous, music makes more than half the battle imo.

    I'm still waiting for the buizel vs lucario segment to load on youtube right now,
    god it's taking forever, but it'll be worth the waiting. ^^

    regardless of what people say though, chimchar did help wear down meditite's psychic power for mukkubird so he wasn't totally just there...

    You know I really want to rant about Buizel, but I won't... not yet anyway.

    Anyway I like the fact that Staravia got some redemption. So that's awesome, and that Lucario didn't lose to that thing and Ash still got the badge is nice too.

    And noooooow the moment you've been waiting for.

    It's official, I hate the water rat. They completely screwed over Chimchar for this. And they'd better redeem it, because since the tournament it hasn't done jack.

    Seems like a great episode. I thought Staravia and Buziel deserved the spotlight on this gym battle. Both are strong pokemon who haven't had much of a chance to shine so far. With Staravia learning Brave Bird I kind of thought Ash would use it and do well with it in this gym. I'm a little surprised that in the last 4 or 5 episode two of Ash's pokemon learned their most powerful moves (Brave Bird and Water Pulse). That is why I am not too worried about Chimchar. There wasn't enough spotlight for everybody. I expect in gym 6 and 7 (Steel and Ice) that is where Chimchar will shine. Also I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the ghost or the electric gym. Well see...

    Yes, clearly a horrible battle. It's complete BS that they would give the spotlight to, y'know, the titular Pokemon. Yes, yes. And horrible that they gave it a chance to shine since it hasn't been in any gym battles yet. That makes no sense. Everyone knows that Satoshi has used Buoysel in a bunch of Battles. He's been seeing way too much face time.

    Clearly Gligar was screwed out of its win. WTF, they should've used him! He's a flying type! This is a prefect gym to show his POWAA. They completely neglected the poor gargoyle. I hate that damn weasel! How dare he get a chance to shine![/sarcasm]


    I actually came. Srsly. Great battle. Muku.JUSTICE was amazing. So was Buoysel. He and Lucario had a truly epic battle. Definitely better than Lizardon v. Boober.

    Tie between Buizel and Lucario, lose for Maylene.

    Even after watching it, I'm still not 100% sure Buizel just learned it just like that. I really don't care, it looked to me like it knew it and this was the first time it used.
    -------------------------

    I loved the battles, Staravia did really good, and well Chimchar did okay and Buizel was awesome.

    Geez chimchar will have its chance, so guys/girls calm down. Wow even though I knew the results I'm surprised Buizel managed to survive and tie with Lucario.

    To those who say it was cheap that Buizel opened a hole in the roof. Yeah right, please don't even. It was just as much Lucario's fault as Buizel.

    Croagunk was hilarious, as well as those masseuse people.

    I can't wait to see what Chimchar has in store for us as well as Staravia

    Though I do doubt Ash will use Buizel against Wake. Buizel deserves a nice long break.

    Neither had Buizel, in fact Ash has been training Chimchar far more than Buizel. I'm surprised that Ash even used Buizel to be honest (before the dub title was even announced) and besides Buizel needed it more than Chimchar, since this was Buizel's first gym battle...Period, and major first match. Heck Buizel didn't do squat until Ash used it against Maylene. Chimchar has been in a lot of battles, he at least battled Roark, and he had multiple battles in the tag battle Arc.

    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    That can actually happen when a Gym Leader loses regardless of a draw?

    Anyway:

    ~Staravia finally pulled off some KO's in its 'resume'. Good for it.
    ~Chimmy (or Chimchar; sorry about that) put up a good fight.
    ~Lucario Vs Buizel (hence the episode title) was truly epic. But lets face it, Buizel might have lost if not for its newfound Water Pulse ability and being refreshd by the rain (I mean, look WAY back at the Ash/Brock battle)...

    No. It wasn't a loss for Sumomo. In the event of a tie, it's the Gym Leader's choice as to whether the challenger was deserving of a badge. Given that this has been a pretty awesome fight, I think I'd agree with her decision that he was worthy.

    And yes, it probably would've been a loss for Buoysel, but that Lucario was pretty h4x. Not that it's a bad thing, it was just unusually strong I felt. Buoysel will likely be a major powerhouse for Satoshi though. Sumomo was impressive too though. I really liked how she battled and made the movements that her Pokes did.

    This was one badass battle. Forget the Convenient rain and the Water Pulse. I loved it. And it showed just how strong Buizel was. He is in fact a badass. I was disappointed because I wanted to see Chimchar get a win. But look at it this way. It has Canalave, Snowpoint, Hearthome, and Sunyshore with type advantages. Chimchar has MANY chances to shine so its not a complete loss. As for Muku. It got some good wins. We probably wont see it in another gym battle unless Ash uses it in Hearthome so it was good it got those wins

    Although I would like it more if Buizel would have trained for Water Pulse before the battle, the process is not bad.

    I mean how do pokemon learn moves in the game? After getting experience, right? They never have to see someone using the move it is learning.

    This is the same case with Buizel. He just got experience and learned Water Pulse. Thats all.

    I know that Buizel doesn't learn WP naturally. Bulbasaur dosen't learn tickle or Whirlwind naturally, and nobody has trained him for those moves. So count Buizel learning WP a anime error.

    If we look it that way, Buizel learning WP is pretty cool. It was not even DEM. Buizel didn't win (with WP or not).

    I'll say, I saw a real cool gym battle after a long time. Buizel sorta didn't lose, neither Lucario. That statisfied all of us I guess, as well as we saw a new kind of result.

    So from what I hear Buizel learns Water Pulse? Thats cool as atleast its a diffrent water move to Water Gun and Bubble Beam.

    Finally i hear it was a draw? But how can it be a draw if from what I understand Ash still had a withdrawn Chimchar and staravia? Even if Buizel and Lucario did draw that would still make Ash outcome ash 1 lose Gym leader 3! Which is a win!

    Well the match went like this,

    Machoke Vs Staravia - Staravia won
    Meditite Vs Staravia - Staravia was withdrawn
    Meditite Vs Chimchar - Chimchar was withdrawn
    Meditite Vs Staravia - Staravia won
    Lucario Vs Staravia - Lucario won
    Lucario Vs Chimchar - Lucario won
    Lucario Vs Buizel - double knock out (both Lucario & Buizel fainted together)

    Result:- Match was drawn, Maylene after consulting her master (or her father i don't know) & her pokemon decided to give Ash the badge.

    Well if you had been reading some of the post on the first pages of the thread then i understand for your misunderstanding because i was one of the people who posted the match result wrong.

    This GYM was the best.
    It is good to see Mukkubird got two wins even Chimchar did well.
    battle field was awful.
