    I kinda have to agree considering that Gliscor beat Byron's best pokemon in the last gym, it's kinda hard to see it go down that easily, but then again as you've said both were at a disadvantage, Gliscor just got the shorter end of the stick, and as someone elsewhere pointed out, Ash should not have kept going for fire fang, that's most likely what did it in.

    Snover vs Chimchar- As if Chimchar is going to lose <_<
    Flamethrower to the rear was a nice touch though.

    Abomasnow vs Staraptor- I hated this too but at least Staraptor did get a win unlike Gliscor.
    Yes we know, you and everyone else hated the gym battle from this point on because the precious bird failed to be the big star, deal with it and move on, and be thankful it took someone down at least.

    Abomasnow vs Grotle- I kind of like how the writers said FU to Grotle's defense completely ignoring the fact it was wood hammer, something that wouldn't have done that to Grotle in the first place.
    i found Grotle's expression from the pain to be quiet funny actually.

    Abomasnow vs Chimchar- Way too Cliche, fire type beats grass/ice Pokemon without pause. I guess all those people who say Buizel is the strongest Sinnoh Pokemon can now zip it. 6 gym wins to 3.
    I dunno dude, I mean Chimchar didn't beat Snover on it's own power. (nor drifblim either) it did beat Abamasnow, Mismagius, Bronzor and Steelix though because they had taken no prior damage to the fight beforehand, but that's a different topic entirely, overall 4 to 3 isn't much dude.

    I don't see how using the ice to skate around and burn Abamasnow's butt wasn't unique, I mean come on you've gotta give Ash some points for using the field like that.

    It did but not really, I has hoping Rock climb would be like a claw punch thing but all it looked like was a tackle, even then Grotle barely touched Sneasel.

    I kinda have to agree considering that Gliscor beat Byron's best pokemon in the last gym, it's kinda hard to see it go down that easily, but then again as you've said both were at a disadvantage, Gliscor just got the shorter end of the stick, and as someone elsewhere pointed out, Ash should not have kept going for fire fang, that's most likely what did it in.
    Yeah I agree, X-scissor and Steel Wing were (or should I say ARE?) both super effective against Snover, just because Fire fang is 4x.

    Did I not just say that?

    Yeah but technically only Drifblim received damage from Pikachu not like it helped since Pikachu lost (easily). And I doubt even if Gliscor didn't hit Snover that Chimchar would've lost. And still even if a Pokemon receives damage that doesn't matter because it's still a win. I mean look at Cynthia's battle against Paul. 4 of Paul's Pokemon could not take the thing down. I would find it hard to believe that if Paul kept going that the 5th Pokemon winning against Garchomp would not be deserved.
    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.

    -The gang's back in their cold weather outfits. And Zoey's with them. Horray?
    -And the battle's on an ice field! Taking bets on how many "oh no, Ash's Pokemon is slipping!", "hah! We can use the ice to blah bla hblah Candice's Pokemon!", and "hey if we use a FIRE attack on the ICE, it turns into WATER" moments there will be, RIGHT NOW! Step right up, everyone's a winner!
    -Am I hearing things or does the ref(who, in a break from tradition, is an old, stuffy, businessy looking man) have the narrator's voice?
    -Candice takes her sweater off. Dammit, she should know better than to listen to S.Suikun!
    -Oh good, TR plot. I can ignore the ep for a few minutes.
    -Okay, wipe-away sound, I can...wait, no, it's still TR. Dammit, I'm here for gym battles, not TR stuff!
    -HERE we go. Ash wisely uses his Grass Pokemon against the ice type. Attaboy!
    -Sneasel's making Grotle frost over. Now those lovely bushes on its back will die before they can bloom in the glory of summer.
    -Using Rock Climb for better mobility on the ice? That's...pretty smart, actually. And apparently Ash remembered how Shinji's Torterra took a bunch of hits then struck back from whatever episode that was. I do love the mini-theme DP(and parts of late AG) has with having Ash/Dawn remember other people's strategies and adapt them for their own use. When the writers bother to use it, anyway.
    -But the walking football's time is up for now, since it's Medicham vs Muku.HAWKBIRDRU now!
    -Wait, it's actually TR plot now. Time to ignore the episode again.
    -Oh hey, Psychic. Also known as "that one completely unstopable move since it can do pretty much ANYTHING"
    -Luckily for Ash, Candice unwisely gave Medicham Fire Punch instead of, say, Thunderpunch or Ice Punch. Yep, good thing Medicham used the one punch not super effective against Mukuhawk.
    -You know, I've always wondered...why do Gyms have so much seating in the bleachers when there's only ever five people in them, at most? This is seriously bugging me, and not just because gym battles don't leave me much to comment on.
    -Oh no. A snorunt. Whatever will ash do. Surely it will not die in one hit from any fire attack ever.
    -La di da TR plot I am ignoring~
    -Gliscor uses Fire Fang. Snorunt melts.
    -Snorunt uses Ice Beam. Gliscor anti-melts.
    -Fire+ice=watersteam. Called it!
    -Advance Adventure as BG music? ...well okay then!
    -Muku.HAWK goes down fast. More importantly, I'm digging the attention to detail by keeping the dent in the wall from when Gliscor lost horribly.
    -Grotle goes down in one hit too. So, about my dinner for today. I was thinking of making something simple like spaghetti, but that would involve going to the store to get some stuff. Then again, I'd have plenty of time for it since the writers are spending so much time on dramatic buildup to Chimchar's victory. Hell, I could probably do a month's grocery shopping in the time this is taking.
    -Chimchar's not doing so well, but man oh man look at its facial expressions! That is one hilariously distressed monkey, yesiree bob.
    -And as I was saying, I'd need to scrounge up some cash for that trip to the sto...oh hey, Ash had his obligatory battle-crisis epiphiny. I guess I should pay attention to see what insane idea seeing Abomisnow crush a piece of ice gave him.
    -Chimchar's using a piece of ice as a "snow"board? Well...whatever works for you.
    -Haha, Abomisnow is pissed at Chimchar for dodging so much.
    -Oh wait Skuntank Dude is still hanging around? Man, this TR plot really is worthless.
    -On the other hand, it apparently involves TR being defeated by a fart attack. So it's not entirely worthless, if only for the juvinile humor.
    -And the ep ends like usuaOHFUCK PAUL FROM NOWHERE.


    Pretty good gym battle ep, although not really one of the top gym battles, and as usual there's not terribly much to make note of other than where the writers are making Ash act really stupidly in order to build up dramatic tension. More importantly:Jesus christ Candice's outfit leaves more of her skin exposed to the freezing cold than Dawn's outfit does. It's like Japan has no idea what actual cold is and what it does to people exposed to it long enough.

    durhurhur Almighty Zard, nice logic.

    I wouldn't have minded Chimchars battle if it wasn't for that. I just dislike comical battles.

    I just watched the episode on You Tube. It was pretty good but Staraptor and/or Grotle should have gotten at least one hit on Abomasnow. Gliscor should have beaten Snover too. Ash really took advantage of that ice field.

    Chimchar is soo badass now, and it seemed that Abomasnow wasn't trying to show any mercy....woohoo, I liked it...I also liked how smug it was when it used blizzards with its arms folded *classic*

    Ash was...rather...enjoyable to watch in this episode...and now...I think....I officially prefer the japanese version of pokemon now...

    - Ash vs Candice stars quickly.
    - Cliche Team Rocket subplot..I don't care for the moment
    - Grotle defeats Sneasle. At least it gets a win.
    - Staraptor vs Medicham.. Staraptor's in the same position as Grotle
    - I guess Gliscor is the Chimchar(Maylene)/Turtwig(Wake)/Pikachu(Fantina)/Buizel(Byron) of this gym. Seriously, they couldn't steal one of Chimchar's many wins for a pokemon that probably won't even be around after Sinnoh? Here's hoping it takes down at least one of Volkner's pokemon and does well in the league.
    - Chimchar wins..yeah..
    - Abomasnow uses ice punch(?) on Staraptor and wood hammer on Grotle and OHKOs them. Some great defense there, Grotle.
    - Chimchar wins again.
    - Probably the best scene in the episode: Skuntank's deadly fart
    - Paul shows up and it looks like his hair is longer than usual...

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    Pikachu still Iron Tail was not as weak to Ice as Gliscor.

    I really liked the quality of the episode. It was top notch. Can't wait for next episode and Sunyshore. And love Skuntank's revenge.

    It's kinda funny that no one mentions being disappointed because Staraptor didn't have the gym yet Zard is the only mentioning it to everyone looking for conflict. Get over it...

    The funny thing is that Ash used all his evolved Pokemon but Chimchar stole the spotlight.

    forgive me for being sick and tired after last week, i mean you and several others wouldn't shut up about the bird "taking the match out of "fairness"" when the writers don't know what the word means and never will, it got annoying so when i heard the bird went down i was happy and joyous because it proved my point(that the writers don't play fair), repress your feelings on the matter all you want i know most of you are raging mad inside right now and that's fine.

    I don't intend to continue this discussion anymore either, i'm not going to sink to kojiro's level of PA'ing people.

    The only thing i still don't get is Gliscor, i mean seriously what the heck happened to it? Did it catch the Buizel virus or what, beating a GL's main pokemon only to lose to a flunky, it's wacked out.

    Most of us were saying that we'd like Staraptor to win the badge, not that we thought it would.

    Honestly I would have preferred Grotle or Gliscor over Chimchar too.

    Decent Gym battle but you can tell it was played for comedy at some points.

    They played a lot of nice battle music though, I heard the classic RBY themes, the Johto theme, and Advance Adventure.

    i loiked this gym battle a lot
    but annoyed with gliscor's performance but what can you expect in an ice gym
    staraptor did get a win but it stull han't starred a ym this season along with pikachu
    grotle went OK it's battle against sneasel was good
    and that leaves chimchar: chimmy looked shaky at first but then with a snowboard and a few flamethrowers and a flame wheel to end it he did well
    wanna brawl?

    So, where'd you guys watch the episode? Youtube? Or somewhere else? Im having problems looking for it on Youtube

    On a side note, Chimchar seems to be getting a lot of spotlight lately, in both the 6th and 7th gym.

    imo i thought it was a decent ep i think abomasnow was beaten too easily seeing as it was only one flame wheel which really took him out

    Zoey stayed to watch kinda cool
    Team rocket went off on der own lil hunt instead of interupting gym
    Grotle using rock climb in battle looked good
    Staraptor had first gym appearance and won since like maylene i think
    Poor gliscor gettin his *** handed to him but a good way to balance his last win on byron
    Chimchar did some good battling and by beating abomasnow is tied with buizel(kinda for maylene) for gym victories
    And then...............Paul appeared last min to challenge candice.........loved dis bit in my opinion


    Credit goes to the very talented Skiyomi for this awesome Banner!!!!


    I claimed Palpitoad.....yay???

    As I knew I would be, I was disappointed with this gym. Way to rushed. It felt like if you blinked you missed something. If you ignore the rush, then it was a decent battle.

    The animation was neat but the whole thing just felt..rushed. The team rocket side story was decent too. Overall, a decent but not excellent gym battle.

    A decent battle but yeah, a bit too rushed. I did like the comedic aspects to the battle and nice to hear Advanced Adventure in the background.

    ...and rofl, Chimchar clinging to Ash's leg at the end of the battle and Ash just walking like that. It was actually rather cute.

    Why on earth would anyone repress their feelings about a Pokemon not winning a battle...Seriously, you appear to be the only person making a big deal and it's pretty pathetic.

    It's like with the Sunnyshore Gym, Pikachu 'should' get to shine. But I'm not gonna complain if one of the others takes it...It's a Pokemon battle ffs.
