    It seems that they are representing Rampardos (by its shape) as a powerful spear & Bastiodon (by its head shape) as a ultimate defense (something which we had in Naruto too, between Gaara's Ultimate Sand Defense & Kimimaro's Ultimate Spear Attack).

    Pics,

    Well, it LOOKS like a good episode, but those pics alone aren't much to go on. I'll have to wait till I see it.

    ...wait, is that Chibi Roark? I think we better hide before the fangirls get wind of this.

    My points for Roark just skyrocketed passed Volkner's.

    And Byron as well, I guess.

    Concerning the episode, I'm quite interested into hearing what Bastiodon sounds like and how he moves... it looks more like a robot than anything.

    Either that or a bit of long-dead Chikorita.

    Something like that. I think it's just a fossilized leaf. So technically, it is a leaf stone :P

    Disapointing, but not unexpected. For those who havn't seen the pics or ep yet, no one wins. TR inturrupt, steal the fossils, then Byron and Roark team up on them. I havn't seen the ep yet, just the pics, so im not sure who was winning, but it looks like its just a draw.

    It's really annoying when they do that. I'd like to have seen a clear winner. But some of the moves on both sides look really cool.

    I think this is going to be an episode I have to watch before getting an honest opinion. However, it looks like Byron likes to torment his son.

    Aaaaw, little Roark! ^_^

    It does look like a Leaf Stone or they're revealing new fossils for 5th Gen, but I think it's a Leaf Stone. Looking at the pictures on Serebii now, episode watching later! <3

    Looks great, Roark as a kid is so cute and I wanted Byron to win that battle!

    Fangirlism indeed.

    ...Anyway... according to Squaaah, it's 'Team Rocket-interrupts-and-no-one-wins' again. But heck, I don't care about that part. So... how was the actual episode, anyway?

    Wow.

    Byron looks...kinda...well, not the type you'd wanna meet in a dark quarry at night.

    It probably would've done, since Bastiodon's defences and Rampardos's attack strength cancel each other out. At least, I think so.

    If TR hadn't interrupted, there probably would've been an outcome.
    Sig pending.

    Speak for yourself...

    k...on topic. The fossil looks like a Claw Fossil (Anorith/Armaldo).

    Apparently the fossil isn't a "fossil"

    But a fossil of Sunkern's Leaf. 0.o

    Byron has a nice voice. It's Franky's VA from One Piece, btw. He has an imo unique voice. Very rough. Bastiodon goes "tuh tuh tuh". Eh, not as great as the almighty "RAMPRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!" which returns! In fact, Bastiodon seems to have the "Hariyama" voice, which I call it, which quite a few large Pokemon have.

    One part of this episode baffles me. We have Roark order Rampardos to use Zen Headbutt, and Byron tells Bastiodon to use Iron Head. We see Rampardos, but then all of a sudden a glowing light just pops up in front of Rampardos that looks just like Bastiodon's glowing head in shape and size. It REALLY freaked me out and for a second. It's suppose to be Bastiodon, but we never see him charge it up...the light just appears and shrinks into a vague Bastiodon-head shape.

    EDIT: Mamoswine's back in the opening again.

    Roark just became my favorite Gym Leader. Sorry, Maylene.

    So did Rampardos use any new attacks, or just the standard Headbutt/Zen Headbutt/Flamethrower?

    This episode was pretty solid for what it was. What little we saw of the battle was good, and I really liked all of Roark and Byron's antics together.

    Its a bit better than your average Gym leader intro episode, complete with continuity to Roark who hasn't appeared since DP15, which was quite a long time ago if you think about it.
