    Yep, the Kanto Frontier Brains were just shown in a brief montage of superimposed images over Kanto. I personally liked the battle, if not only for the fact that Paul just completely flipped out eventually, which is a first for this series. Not to mention he got flattened even worse here than he did when he fought Cynthia. The battle overall lasted at least half of the episode, though.

    Reggie's flashback only showed him vs Brandon, and it only showed him with Drapion.

    I don't know about you guys, but Paul will always be Brandon's son in my canon.

    I think one of the reasons Paul lost was because of his weird choices. Nidoking, Lairon, and Hariyama, who are they, where did they come from? Why did you (Paul) use them?

    S-same. But I still think it's too early for the theory to be proclaimed dead at this point. It was never addressed. So my blindly-optimistic side tells me maybe there will be a moment in 129 (like after Brandon gets blasted and stonified) that could easily break the barrier. Either that or we get more detailed backstory during the Ash/Paul fight.

    Until that point, I'm saying it's still 50/50 either way. Because they're dropping a huge, huge ball of a storyline to simply say it was all a coincidence. Paul's a shady guy, after all. Still holding in quite a bit, I imagine.

    I still find it weird that he never used Torterra at all, too. Especially since they showed it as a Turtwig in the flashback sharing Paul's sentiments towards Brandon.

    Okay first of all Nioking isn't a fighting type, it's poison/ground, secondly in my post I never said Magmar..

    I still say it's up in the air. They never gave a direct "yes" or "no" answer. And I think the next few episodes could still show us something.

    I didn't have a problem with Nidoking or Hariyama. They're both strong Pokemon, and Hariyama's Fighting type is SE against all three Regi. Besides the main characters, we rarely learn how other trainers got their Pokemon, so it's no big deal with Paul having non-Sinnoh Pokemon...

    Lairon's kinda weird though.

    Even so, for all we know they could be new captures, I mean why didn't he use Torterra, it's at least super effective against both Regirock and Registeel (if it used a ground type). I mean if Paul said they were his old Pokemon, his valued Pokemon, then I'd be partially fine. But Paul's Pokemon didn't even put a scratch on the Regi's. Ash's Pokemon at least did more damage. And those were one on one's too (Regirock, Registeel).

    It just seems to be too much for Paul to think he would win if he wasn't using his strongest team, I mean he chose Ursaring, and we know for a fact that one is fairly new (caught in Sinnoh, when Ash was in Sinnoh).

    Yes, maybe he will throw them(Lairon, Hariyama and Nidoking) because they did not proove them'selves.

    Nidoking did use a powerful Earthquake attack against Registeel which for a moment looked like it would have knocked Registeel out.

    So Japan is comfortable with earthquake now? Then I hope to see Donphan and Tauros use their ground type moves again.

    In any case so Paul got close to knocking out one of them, I guess the deciding factor was Brandon being able to switch.

    Yes Torterra has not used although he has an advantage against Regirock.
    Hey Serebii what about the Anime'dex? you are fixing the episodes that I mentioned?

    His choice of pokemon were probably for battling candice, paul would've been unaware of brandon being in snowpoint and so just used the pokemon he had on him. shame about him being unable knock him just one regi, since when are frontier brains allowed to switch out in battle?

    Good, now we can stop with the argument that Earthquake was "banned".

    Regarding the "Jindai-san" thing, remember that this is the series that has Oak refer to a close friend as "Satoshi no Mama-san" (that's "Ash's Mother" or "Mrs Ash's Mother") even though they've known each other for years and take vacations together. And according to one of the writers, Oak "takes care of her like a daughter" (something I think is bull, but still).

    i doubt the battle was official, if it had been then i'm sure the stipulation of Brandon not being allowed to substitute would've been put into effect, but it was more of a personal battle from Paul's veiw than a battle for a symbol.

    I looked at the pics supplied by Filb.de. It wasn't earthquake (at least I don't think so) it had the same animation as Alan's Probopass so I think it was earth power not earthquake. Not sure there's much of a difference though.

    I've gotta say, this is all quite the surprise. It's been about 60 episodes since we first spotted the missing symbol in Reggie's collection, and now it all pays off. I'm impressed, writers.

    Just from all that's said here, it seems like this episode is well worth it. ^_^ Sweet!
