Excellent episode! I give Hirooka a 9 out of 10 for this.
The only downside I would say is Brandon was allowed to rotate his pokemon.
So regirock has been in Brandon's arsenal for quite sometime now and I thought all the regis were newly caught when Ash battled them.
no paul got thrashed
did you see the smug look on ash's face when he lost,
oh well, i hope lairon and haryama don't stay on his team
-Charizard is the greatest pokemon.
BOW DOWN BEFORE HIM!
I don't mind lairon......it can only mean an Aggron come the league and though Aggron has been done to death at this point, I still like it.

It was disappointing by any strecth of the imagination but i still thought it might be a bit better sadly
Loved Pauls reaction to Ash when he found out he beat him
Nice lil battle frontier scene with the map nd the 7 brains
The temple guardian appearing was good
Brock being the ref again is always good lol
My god Paul was getting owned for this whole match
I liked the flashback of Regiie and seeing Paul with Turtwig
Wow Paul has a Lairon which was surprising
Poor Paul lost lol thought he would alright
We got a reference to some pokemon contest i'm not so sure where though
and bye bye to Zoey for now lol
Could somebody please tell me what Brandon and Reggie said that got a huge reaction from Paul and Ash at the end of the episode?????
Credit goes to the very talented Skiyomi for this awesome Banner!!!!
I claimed Palpitoad.....yay???
Okay regirock was probably his first regi as regice was his last he caught it who knows where but
Ok, this episode was pretty awesome. It wasn't a boring 3 on 3 battle between to random trainers, it was an actual 6 on 6 battle (even if Brandon used 3 pokemon only) and two amazing trainers, Brandon and Paul.
I loved the fact that Paul used pokemon we haven't seen before, that made things a bit more exciting, even if we could predict they'd all lose to Brandon's Regirock, Regice and Registeel.
I loved it how Paul was continuously being scolded by Brandon, e.g. "What is the reason you fight for?", "Your pokemon are strong, but they lack the strength in the battlefield, there is no connection between you and them, you dont put your heart into the battle.". Hopefully he can take these pieces of advice into consideration, although I doubt so.
Ash is the finest trainer of all, having beaten Brandon, who so easily defeated Paul, who in turn is considered to be a decent trainer.
It was also sad to see Candice go, but her riding a Dodrio was pretty exciting. I kept thinking she'd fall off.
P.S. Loved Paul's face when he found out Ash had battled and defeated Brandon. Never seen that face before.
A nice link with the next episode has been established.

Some times, Wikipedia doesn't tell the truth. Check Bulbapedia, that tells the truth and it is based on Pokemon. The battles seems interesting. I expected Paul to lose. That is what he gets when he is mean to his brother!

I actually felt sorry for Paul. The sad music when only Magmar was left got to me.
Also Joe, don't forget that Candice's Bio needs updating too with Dodrio.

Kingler, my friend. No matter what, you will always remain my favourite Water type. You shouldn't have missed out on the Sinnoh League and I look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the near future.
There you are, I see you in the back there!
I bet Brandon will reveal himself to be Paul's dad. Or not.
Paul got one embarrassing loss, especially with Lairon. I believe it was the only one who didn’t land a shot, it didn’t even move It just got frozen and then zapped.
The sad music at the end made his loss so dramatic. Earth Power is like an upgraded version of Earthquake.
What was up with Regice's voice?O_O
Paul should just put on a dress and start going by the name Mary Poppins cause he is about as threatening as her. That was a rather sad attempt.

Ahh, Zoey, you always seem to make me laugh.
I for one am not sad that Paul lost. It's about time he got knocked down a notch or two. Anyhow, it was a pretty good episode, which isn't really surprising, I figured it would be anyway.
Wow! Shinji totally got pwned by Brandon. It's a shame really. I bet Ash was like "Hahahaha! Serve you right you arrogant son of a b*tch!" in his mind after watching Shinji's defeat.
No, despite his dislike of Paul's ways of training, he has shown to be sympathetic towards him.

I for one still believe that there is a hope for Brandon to be Paul and Reggie's dad. Why would Paul have such anger towards Brandon if all he did was watch his brother begin defeated by Brandon. I particularly liked Paul's face when Ash recongized the Battle Pyramid. But I don't know if Paul knows that Ash won. I still believe that Brandon will be reavealed to be Paul's dad.
On Nov 21, 2010, I'm going on vacation. I'm going to a country to visit two friends and a grumpy oldtimer who are awaiting my return.
Why does it say on Wikipedia that Paul told Ash he released Torterra? It also says he released Honchrow.

This episode was all sorts of epic - to see Paul get crushed like that was sort of amazing and the sad music that began playing made me sympathize with Paul. I'm still trying to figure out what Paul said to Ash at the beginning of the episode but I guess I'll have to wait for some translations.
I loved Paul's expressions in this episode- you hardly ever see him lose his cool, and he was really losing it in that battle. I wonder how if the dub will emote it that well too. His shocked expressions were awesome too, especially when he and Reggie found out Ash had fought Brandon and won.
I hope so too. Maybe it'll be a turning point in Paul's training methods and Paul admitting that Ash is a strong trainer.Hopefully, it'll culminate in some sort of breakdown on his end, particularly if Ash wins the next battle (in my opinion, anyway.)
