    Needless to say, Paul got whitewashed. He used Magmar, Electabuzz, Ursaring, Nidoking, Hariyama & Lairon and he got destroyed. Didn't knock out one

    The people on bulbapedia say that Paul isn't related to Brandon and that he loses.

    Really? It's a shame if they're really not. And I gotta say I at least thought Paul would take down one or two of the Regis- he's a good enough trainer to at least manage one. And Lairon? Seriously? Surely he would have used Torterra in a match like this- it is established as being his usual ace- Aggron I can understand but it's unlike Paul to have a Lairon which isn't evolved yet in such an important battle. Haven't seen this episode yet, but so far I've not heard or read good things...

    Unfortunately Brandon ignores the fact he has legendary Pokemon and switches his Pokemon, given Paul no real way to beat him or any of his Pokemon. Every Regi was like full health for every one of Paul's Pokemon.

    Paul got absolutely spanked 6-0. It was basically a reserve team though apart from Magmar and Electabuzz (and possibly Ursaring). It was nice to see Reggie and for Candice show up.

    So Shinji and Jindai aren't related, eh? That's odd although I'm not too disappointed. It's fairly common for us in the fandom to relate two characters to each other but I'm a bit surprised because there were some connections they had like the Reiji - Regi connection. Makes me wonder if the writers just wanted to tease us.

    Can't wait for screens! Imma email-subscribe for this thread so I get alerted right away.
    Does anyone know of that 2chan place where the earliest shots show up? I can never find my way around 2chan.

    So if Ash was seeting there and seeing how Paul is loosing to Regice (while Paul knows that he defeated him),Paul is definitely imberased.

    I hastily took about 60 screencaps of the episode in crappy Keyhole TV quality, ahaha...

    I'm still like being desperate since the theory was not exactly directly addressed to either way and we're just now getting into a rather lengthy arc of epic episodes where more backstory could pop out at any time. Because it really does seem like there's more to this than what's been shown here. At least, that's kind of how I feel about it.

    I am totally stoked that Paul got owned to pieces in the battle, though. That was totally appropriate.

    It's never addressed. Most think the "Jindai-san" and some other things mean that there's no relation, but I think we ought to really get through this saga up to 132 before making a decision. So I see it considered as unresolved right now.

    They did show the flashback. Reggie had a Drapion... I believe against Regirock. Reggie was shut down and Brandon said some really harsh things to him (that seem to still bug Reggie today) and Paul and his then-Turtwig looked really angry at whatever Brandon said.

    And I really do want to know what exactly was said...

    Lairon? I thought Paul would normally have an Aggron.

    Kinda neat that Candice has a Dodrio though.

    Talking Paul didn't do better!

    Okay so i am from America but saw what happened and how the heck did Paul not do better. I mean he is stronger than Ash in my opinion and he didn't even beat one Pokemon?! I think Paul should have done better.

    I just saw the ep on youtube. There hair is also identical to a T. for both reggie and Paul to Brandon's. I think he's definetly their dad. But, it's under a lot of speculation, so it's still unconfirmed. Call Maury Povich!!

    I honestly don't see why people assume Brandon would be Paul and Reggie's father. Being a kids' show, Pokemon wouldn't dive into a character's background unless it was called for and with evidence to back it up, so why would it with Paul and Reggie without more obvious hints? If it did state that, I'd need some believable proof so that doesn't feel like it was pulled out of nowhere.

    Also, just because two people look alike doesn't always mean they're related to each other. As said before, it needs to have concrete proof, like a character's statement. Sure, their eyebrows are a bit familiar, but Brandon would've displayed some kind of personal reaction if they really were his kids, right at the battle with Reggie, but he did not, if Reggie's flashback is any indication.

    Also, this just might be my opinion, but Brandon doesn't seem to be the type to have kids. He's more focused on his work, battles and archeology. Besides, he doesn't have a wife present, and couples don't actually need to have children. And if he did have kids, it would've hinted at in some point, either through another character (like Scott), or he said it himself.

    Sorry if that went a little long, but I just don't quite get why the idea is so popular.
    Xatu's FireRed Pokedex states: "In South America, it is said that its right eye sees the future and its left eye views the past." This is the Pokemon world. South America doesn't exist!
