    Wow, the battlefield keeps changing? That's gotta cause some disadvantages for Ash.

    There shouldn't be much posting in this thread yet. This is not the place for speculation. And most of what I see here is merely speculation.

    Probably just. He's going to have a hard time using Swellow and Pikachu.

    It is going to be a tough battle but Ash might be able to pull it of, I think for this battle he has speed in mind but if Lunatone's Ice Beam hits Swellow then it won't be looking good....

    I think he will win a Mind Badge. Pikachu's electric attacks will hit Lunatone and Solrock, while Swellow can use Aerial Acde, I guess. I don't know why he chose Swellow, but I guess there's a good reason.

    I think that he is using Swellow in the battle to carry Pikachu around the battlefield because both Lunatone and Solrock can levitate and could be fast.

    If you think about it, he is only really using 1 Pokemon for this battle because Swellow's attacks won't do well against Lunatone and Solrock but Pikachu's could do quite well.

    EDIT: I've just seen "Tate & Liza! Space Centre Battle!" so I watched the preview of this episode and I must say...this looks like one tough Gym Battle!! It looks like Lunatone and Solrock aren't to be messed with. I hope that Ash wins!

    Swellow was used to levitate Pikachu from an earthquake attack.
    Still say he should've used Grovile.

    I now don't think that'll win. He'll probably go into Shoal Cave to train. Oh, well, I dunno, he'll win. No, he won't. -_- I'm really bad at making choices ^_^.

    I said no speculation. Thread Closed until the episode airs.

    This is the first Gym Leader battle I've been able to see since I came to Japan in March. It'll also be the last one I'll get to see here. Anyways, here's the bullet points:

    -Rei, Tate and Liza's mother, is acting as the referee for the match. She explains the rules of the double battle, explaining about the special field that they're in. The field has mock-ups of all the planets floating freely in the air, creating obstacles that wouldn't be there ordinarily. Tate and Liza start by choosing Solrock and Lunatone. Ash instantly chooses Pikachu and, after thinking about how it would be good to have an aerial fighter against these particular foes and in this particular field, he chooses Swellow.

    -Outside, Team Rocket plots to steal Lunatone and Solrock. They launch into a Boss Fantasy, in which they imagine him being sad in the dark. Suddenly, Solrock and Lunatone arrive, filling the room with light. An ecstatic Giovanni, donning a top hat and suit, begins to dance happily as the two pokemon continue shining light on the Team Rocket boss. After the fantasy concludes, Jessie and Meowth happily rush off to the Gym to begin, but James stops them. He explains that both Solrock and Lunatone are psychic types, so they'll be more difficult than usual to capture. Meowth says not to worry as he tells them his plan...

    -Back at the gym, the battle begins. Solrock uses Tackle on Pikachu, hitting the mouse pokemon. Lunatone uses Tackle as well, hitting Swellow. Now it's Ash's turn. He orders Pikachu to use Quick Attack on Solrock and tells Swellow to use Peck on Lunatone. As Pikachu charges into its attack, Solrock floats out of the way, causing Pikachu to crash into one of the floating planets. The same thing happens with Swellow--it charges toward Lunatone, Lunatone dodges, and Swellow crashes right into a floating planet. Pikachu falls down, and soon after Swellow lands on it. Things aren't looking too good for Ash.

    -Tate and Liza are now ready for the next attack. Solrock is told to use Solar Beam while Lunatone is told to use Ice Beam. The two attacks combine and are headed right for Pikachu and Swellow, who are still reeling from their last defeat. Suddenly, the two beams stop in midair! Ash wonders what happens, and soon he sees Tate and Liza arguing amongst themselves! They’re blaming each other for their mistakes, which is keeping them from continuing the battle. Ash sees this as his chance, so he orders Swellow to use Aerial Ace on Lunatone. The attack hits! Pikachu is also ordered to attack, so it hits Solrock with an Iron Tail attack. Tate and Liza notice that their pokemon are getting beaten while they quarrel, so they both rejoin the battle and order their pokemon to use Tackle attack on Pikachu. Pikachu is about to be sandwiched by the two psychic pokemon, but it is rescued when Swellow swoops in and scoops it up. Lunatone and Solrock crash into each other, which causes Tate and Liza to begin arguing again.

    -As the twin Gym Leaders blame each other for their constant blunders, the ground starts to rumble. Suddenly, a hole is blown into the roof, and Jessie and James appear! The two Team Rocket members ride in on a flying sun and moon, and they perform their motto like some weird opera duo (I loved it when they said their names..."Musashiiiiiiii~~~~~~~! Kojirooooou~~~~~~!") The motto ends with the roof caving in even more, and we see a giant robot, piloted by Meowth! Meowth tells the group that this mecha has been designed specifically to capture Lunatone and Solrock! Liza complains about the battle field being ruined, so Tate and Liza send out their pokemon to attack. The Team Rocket mecha fires two round cages (think of the cages used to catch the three legendary birds in the second movie) at the pokemon, capturing them both. Lunatone and Solrock are ordered to use Psychokinesis, but the attacks are being absorbed by their cages! Team Rocket laughs at their futile efforts as the mecha makes its escape.

    -Ash and the others start chasing after, and they are able to keep up until they get to the cliff where Team Rocket has parked their giant Meowth balloon. Team Rocket attaches the mecha to the blimp, and soon the robot is seen dangling from the hot air balloon as Ash and the others arrive on the scene. Ash orders Pikachu to use Thunderbolt, but the mouse pokemon's attack isn't able to reach. So, Ash has Pikachu jump on Swellow and has them chase Team Rocket that way. Jessie and James look worried, but Meowth tells them not to worry as he presses a button, causing the robot to fire yellow globs at the two pokemon. Swellow presses through as Pikachu uses Thunderbolt on the mecha, causing it to release the two pokemon (they're alright, though, because they're both rock-types). The newly-freed pokemon are told to use Psychokinesis on the robot, crushing it into a small cube. The mecha explodes, and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again.

    -Now that everyone's safe, Liza complains about the gym field being destroyed. Rei suggests that they just have the battle there, on the cliff that Team Rocket took off from, and everyone agrees that this is a good idea.

    ---commercial break---

    -Rei announces the start of the battle! Pikachu uses Thunderbolt on Solrock, but Lunatone slides in front of it and guards it with Reflect. The attack hits Pikachu, smashing it into a rocky cliff. Takeshi comments on how much better their combination has gotten since the Team Rocket battle.

    -After Pikachu recovers, it is ordered to hop on Swellow's back. The now-airborne Pikachu uses Thunderbolt on Solrock, but the same thing that happened before happens again--Lunatone reflects the attack right back at it. However, this time both Pikachu and Swellow are hit. Tate and Liza know that Pikachu will be alright, but they're surprised to see that Swellow doesn't seem to be affected as well, considering that it's a flying type and all.

    -Next, Swellow is ordered to use Double Team, surrounding Solrock and Lunatone. The two psychic types fly back to back as Tate and Liza gauge the situation. Solrock uses Solar Beam while Lunatone uses Ice Beam as the two pokemon spin around, sweeping the air and taking out all the shadow Swellow and Pikachu. Soon they're all disposed of, and Tate and Liza are confused about the whereabouts of the real Swellow and Pikachu. Suddenly, they see the two pokemon flying from above, ready to strike! Solrock and Lunatone are ordered to quickly whip up a Solar Beam and Ice Beam combination, hitting Ash's pokemon! The pokemon start plummeting toward the earth, but Swellow is able to recover quickly enough and swoops up to safety in the knick of time.

    -Liza tells Ash that he'll never break through their combination as the young trainer wonders how he'll win. He notices some clouds forming overhead, and suddenly he has an idea. He tells Pikachu to use Thunderbolt on the clouds, confusing the Gym Leaders. Soon, the clouds spit back a streak of lightning, directly hitting Pikachu and Swellow. Pikachu is being supercharged by the lightning, but what about Swellow? It's doing fine as well, and after the shock of electricity the two pokemon appear to be covered in a golden coat. Ash is ready to attack.

    -The now super-powered Swellow uses Quick Attack, so Solrock fires a Solar Beam attack on it. Swellow and Pikachu are hit, but they just ignore it and power on through. Lunatone tries an Ice Beam, but its attack is just as futile. Golden-Pikachu uses Iron Tail on Solrock while Golden-Swellow uses Aerial Ace on Lunatone. Both super-powered attacks hit, and as the pokemon’s golden power-ups fade the two rock-type pokemon faint! Rei announces that Pikachu and Swellow have won the battle! Ash goes to hug his two pokemon and receives a shock from the two. Guess they're still a little supercharged from their battle...

    -After the battle, Tate and Liza do the standard "give Ash a Gym Badge during a sunset" scene. As Ash proudly holds the Mind Badge up, the narrator announces that he only has one badge left before the Houen League!

    The golden-type power-up at the end of the battle seemed too deux ex machina-ish for my tastes, but otherwise it was a nice battle episode. I hope the eighth Gym Battle (whoever it's against) doesn't pull this "a bird type is somehow superpowered by a shock of electricity" type of nonsense.

    Wow, sounds like a cool episode.

    I was kinda expecting (or maybe hoping) Ash to lose in this battle, but I guess he did a pretty good job with swellow and pikachu.

    overall the gym battle looks like a nice one. The quarreling between Tate and Liza will be funny and it's a good chance for Ash to attack but this goldensun superpower thing is a bit weird and it's so fantasy like. I can't say I like that part of the battle. Like you said Dogasu, I hope they don't do this in the next gym battle because I don't like it !

    Oh; so Swellow used Double Team? That had me confused for a while, considering both Pikachu and Swellow learn the move naturally...Man, when's Pikachu going to learn another move?! Well nevertheless, Ash has his Mind Badge; so it's off to Sootopolis City and it's Gym Leader...Whoever it may be, but it's probably going to be Wallace...
