    Here's how the battle went down.

    Torterra vs. Buizel Buizel recalled
    Torterra vs. Gliscor Gliscor recalled
    Torterra vs. Staraptor Torterra recalled
    Weavile vs. Staraptor Weavile faints Staraptor recalled
    Electabuzz vs. Grotle Electabuzz recalled
    Honchkrow vs. Grotle Grotle faints
    Ash then calls out pikachu but with no time at all paul switches to magmortar and ash is all like oh **** and then the episode ends.

    It was weird to see that first battle wasn't Hayashigame Vs. Donkaras while preview summary really made it look like it was going to be a first battle..
    They really did do a lot of siwtching though.

    IMO, it already look like battle is flowing to Shinji's favor.

    I love how official they made this battle seem. Full battles are obviously a big deal in the anime.

    I'll just copy and paste my opinion from another forum.

    I'm just shaking from excitement of the suspense of the battle, who's going to win and who's not going to win. Gliscor did pretty good nearly knocked out Torterra, and it was a lot stronger then when it first practice battled when Torterra was trying to show Grotle it's strategy.

    Staraptor doesn't disappoint it took what looked like a stone edge and almost fainted but managed to knock out Weavile, which really is sort of a shame since Weavile hasn't done all that much. But go Staraptor.

    Honchkrow vs Grotle, I'm a bit peeved Grotle lost a bit more easily than when it evolved from a Turtwig. But I have to commend Paul's strategy, using Electabuzz's light screen to prevent Grotle from using Energy Ball was an impressive strategy.
    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.

    I'm with Mudkip. I was hoping Grotle would get revenge. Still, at least it shows Hunchkrow is still bad*ss. And Yeah, it seems like Paul is in control in this battle. When he swaps out, it seems to be strategic, whereas Ash seems to be swapping to keep his pokemon from fainting.

    So Chimchar is the last of Ash's pokemon to be used- I can't say I was expecting Torterra to be Paul's first pokemon!

    If what dman said is true, then that shows Paul's at least a halfway decent strategist. Why the writers have to ruin that by forcing all these powerhouse Pokemon on him is beyond me. Still, if it comes down to strategy, Ash has proven time and again that he has the right head for strategy that has helped his weaker Pokemon gain an edge over stronger opponents, so I'd give this battle to Ash. Actually, I'd give it to him anyway, since a loss would prompt Paul to bring out much stronger reserves for the League. Aggron, anybody?

    I'm excited and disappointed at the same time.

    I'm disappointed because of Grotle. It seems it got weaver after evolving instead of the contrary. I don't think it has done something impressive and it's sad since it's a good pokemon, with great moves and potential. I wanted it to win here.

    I'm happy because they keep developing Staraptor's strength and I think along with Chimchar Staraptor has been the most consistent. After getting trashed always at the beginning to always getting its share of wins in battles.

    After this episode I'm pretty sure Honchkrow has been Ash's team biggest threat.

    I'm not too sure. I'd have to watch it again to hear an order. But it looks like Honchkrow was using it too. Could it be the infamous Night Slash?

    This was a great start to this battle. I thought Gliscor did amazingly well. I thought for sure it'd take Torterra out.

    I find it funny the flying types were the only ones that got a win in this part of the battle.

    After watching the episode I must say I have mixed feelings. But something I noticed after comparing next weeks preview to today's episode is that Ash will most likely only defeat 2 of Pauls Pokemon. Being Weavile and Ursaring (And Monferno might take down Electabuzz). Its safe to say Monferno and Electabuzz have some sort of rivalry going on. But yea thats my take on the episode.

    just watched the episode and it was interesting and exciting episode.

    I am so amazed to gliscor, he improved a lot and became stronger, he managed to pull some powerful attacks to torterra, that was exciting..

    I was also surprised that staraptor managed to defeat weavile after being hit by stone edge from torterra, but he pulled it off.

    I'm so sad to grotle to what happen to him, really taught that he can win does so that he can get his revenge,it's so sad he was very up to the battle with honchkrow but he was defeated.

    Woah! i never taught paul will use light screen what a great strategy..

    before the battle, dawn was so nervous.

    so far the battle is tie with 1 defeat each.

    let's see

    Ash Only has

    Pikachu,Monferno,Buizel,Staraptor,and Gliscor

    and Paul has so far

    Magmortar,Torterra,Electabuzz,Honchkrow

    hmm, i'm so excited for the battle next episode..

    I'm probably missing something here as I've not seen the episode yet, but why is everyone so impressed as Paul using Light Screen to stop Energy Ball? Nobody was bothered with Professor Nanba used Light Screen to stop Pikachu and Sparky's Thunderbolts back in Johto.

    Great episode. I am so happy Staraptor got a win in here, and that Gliscor going in a great fight too. I am also happy they finally changed the glowing colour of Night Slash from the standard blue to Purple. As it just made it look more like a dark type move. Weaviles "Scyther style" version of the move was great, however what was the point in using it, since it switched to Metal Claw straight after?

    My one main criticism of this epsiode is how often the battle got broken up by mindless banter. At one point Staraptor was starting to launch an attack and was then followed by like a minutes worth of Brock and Reggie talking, inwhich time the Bird still had not hit its target, despite its size, speed and the small battlefield.

    Can't wait till next week, when we see more of my favorite Paul pokemon, Ursaring

    The first one wasn't Night Slash even if it was colored purple, it was Swords Dance.
