    Let me be the first to say how much I dislike the new opening.
    Seriously, i'd rather have the old one, this one was kind of, well, terrible.

    Also, rushed episode was rushed.

    And I'm happy. <3 Dawn deserved to win, not May.



    THE END.

    I am not a happy panda. May should have won that. I didn't realise that it is an official GF-elligible ribbon though. I am actually angry about this- especially since Piplup was used.

    Look people, if you are gonna be mad, then blame the writers for making the contest official and having the scenario where Dawn beat May happen instead of blaming Dawn herself.

    Both girls had reasons to win the thing and Dawn obviously got it to make up for her recent losses, just deal with that and move on already.

    Guess the new opening isn't something spectacular.

    I hope Dawn didn't win by using DEMplup (which isn't the same as Piplup). If she keeps using that method, she will end up losing the GF big time. If only that fatass didn't have a Prinplup.

    I am glad Dawn got another win under her belt. She's been needing one for the longest time and anothe rribbon. It'll be handy for her and her quest. Besides, there's al ot of time before the Grand Festival. Who's to say Piplup will remain Piplup? A lot of us thought May's Torchic would remain Torchic, but she ended up evolving into Combusken.

    Wow, this show is just written so poorly....

    Examples:

    "Aim for the horn"- Yeah, we all remember this....

    Satoshi vs Shigeru- This battle calls fake. Heracross withstood the Fire Blast AND Flamethrower, and flapped the fire away with those tiny wings?
    Not to mention Charizard beating Blastoise after taking a Hydro Pump. And lifting it up when Blastoise is clearly heavier.

    Pikachu vs Regice- This was just bad. Regice used REST and Volt Tackle OHKOed it

    This is the same Pikachu that lost to a Magikarp afterward.


    And now this. A first stage whiny starter beating an experienced Glaceon. Please. First off, if Haruka used Venusaur (which she shouldn't even have), she would have won. But tell me how that stupid little penguin beat Glaceon.

    I'll tell you, the show is fake. There could at least be some degree of realism to the show (like you know, actually following Pokemon knowledge), but instead, we get these crappy battles. It never ends. Next in line, Pikachu beats Torterra

    I don't even watch it and it ticks me off.

    The problem is that Whirpool is so ridicolously overpowered in the anime (read: too big). It almost always hits, and Piplup can use it as a shield to any attack.

    Not to mention giving Whirlpool to a pokemon who already knows the other overpowered move a'la BIDE.

    Piplup is fake.

    I think you guys should stop complaining until you actually watched the battle.

    I heard Dawn only barely scraps a victory by points and she barely wins, so its not like Glaceon didn't put up a great fight. May also gets to beat Zoey at least, so that is fun.

    On another note, in DP76 everyone complained May's chest was reduced, yet in this episode it was huge again. Holy crap, how does she do it?

    Who really cares at this point

    That's why there are no complaints on your end.

    ^Cyber I based my conclusion upon earlier episodes and of the preview (where we can see Piplup using Whirlpool as a shield against Ice shard).

    Oh and May's probably on steroids, regarding that chest ^^

    CyberCubed, that is the single most smartest thing anyone has said about anything so far regarding this episode! O_O

    And I agree! With all of the stuff the writers have been doing in the anime, they've been trying to give a sense of realism to the Pokémon world while also trying to capture the strategy the games require. That's all.

    It's all about trying to make some realism. Which I don't see as a problem personally.

    I personally can't wait to see this episode. May vs. Zoey then vs. Dawn oughta be intense.

    Aaaaaand...the fallout begins. Keep killing each other over this, people. It'll help reduce the scrub population.

    As someone who was never a fan of Together in the first place, I can say that the music used is slightly less obnoxious. Doesn't change the fact that it's still practically the same song, though.

    Be back with FAIR, BALANCED, AND UNBIASED thoughts on the episode later.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Easy, she stocked up on her secret stash of Rare Candies and stuffed it in her shirt.

    Anyway, I'm sure the battle was alright, although I'd LOVE to see Dawn with a Prinplup.

    Any pics from this terrible new opening?? I am so glad Dawn won, she desesrved this after a long time of losses. I was a bit dissapointed that it was only 1 on 1 and not 4 on 4.

    The opening animation didn't change, there's no need for pics.

    Of course it was 1 vs 1, that's how the contests always are. I know that Dawn needed a win, I just wish that it didn't involve her beating someone with far more exp and skill, unless May went easy on her. After all, look at how long it took May to finally beat Drew.

    This is how I picture Ash's team by the end of the Sinnoh Saga.

    I can see where Dawn would need this win, but beating May was not the most realistic way to go. Just because Glaceon is the least experienced of May's team does not mean that it is not experienced at all - it has been doing contests since it was an Eevee.

    ^lol well it did beat Brock's evolved, more experianced Marshtomp with next to no battle training in it's first contest, so now it knows how it feels to lose to something similar, only piplup was trained well to battle lol.

    How did Dawn beat the Crawdaunt trainer? I heard she used Bide to KO Crawdaunt.

    after all the amount of times piplup has been forced into the battlefield, why are people so surprised that it would be able to put up a win.

    oh and also, experience isn't everything, things can simply go wrong during the course of a battle or the opponent just happens to be at the top of the game.

    that's life people.
