    Well, starting up in two minutes. So the time has come. Good luck, Ash. Not that you'd need it, with your plot power and all.

    Pikachu vs Aggron- the first battle. Looks like the electronic board of the results is here too.

    The part which is shown before the opening shows the starting of the battle between Ash & Paul. And the First one to start the fight is Aggron & Pikachu.

    After the opening, Gliscor is shown to be practising with Ash & Mamoswine is helping out. Dawn is getting Piplup ready for the cheering, and while going somewhere notices Paul talking to his brother on phone. Next she is having a conversation with Paul.

    EDIT: Double-Edge actually it looks like cause Aggron didn't have recoil.

    Aggron is burned. And he's down!

    It's very good Reggie is here.
    After Infernape took out Aggron, Paul has now sent out Gastrodon (blue!). Barry seems to be excited about -everything- and no Conway (it's a shame, really). But so far this is looking like a good battle.

    My predictions correct so far. I'm sure Conway will pop up at some point.

    Cliff hanger with Buizel in Drapion's claw.

    Ash is up 2-0.

    Cliffhanger? What a surprise. Drapion will surely beat Buizel and Staraptor, then I think fall to Gliscor. Possibly draw.

    Loved that Buizel did a self powered Ice Aqua Jet awesome and its confirmed one or more will not take a victory since Infernape has beaten Aggron and beat Infernape for the better and the worse lets hope its Starptor i will feel sad for poor Torterra/Gliscor/Pikachu if they dont get a win, atleast make Pikachu tie with something if not a win.

    Nice epsiode indeed i enjoyed it and the time lost in other things was actually nice, some dialog between Paul and Dawn and later with the rest of the twerps and Barry.

    Team Rocket kept to a minimum thank you writers and Paul brother cameo was cool ofc it was expected.

    Wow, with 2 weeks time to speculate, everything we speculated came EXACTLY true! Mine also was exact, just the last two battles in the end didnt happen.

    DP 186:

    Predictions:

    At the end of the preview, when Aggron is sent out, Ash smiles at it and tells Pikachu if he wants to go(first) and Pikachu agrees. I believe thats how the match begins. correct

    Aggron vs. Pikachu(Pikachu withdrawn after tough battle)correct
    Aggron vs. Infernape(Infernape)correct
    Gastrodon vs. Infernape(Infernape recalled)correct
    Gastrodon vs. Staraptor(Staraptor recalled)correct
    Gastrodon vs. Buizel(Buizel)correct
    Drapion vs. Buizel(Drapion)correct about matchup, looks set to be correct

    Episode ends

    Drapion vs. Staraptor(Drapion)
    Drapion vs. Gliscor(end of episode)
    Cant wait to see this episode!

    So wait, Stinktrodon did a Counter Shield? Epic win.

    Anyway, was it mentioned if Gliscor's return was temporary or if it's done training with McCann altogether?

    My prediction for DP186 was:

    Pikachu - Aggron: Pikachu is switched out.
    Infernape - Aggron: Infernape wins.
    Infernape - Gastrodon: Infernape is recalled.
    Staraptor - Gastrodon: Staraptor is hindered to such a degree that it needs to be recalled.
    Buizel - Gastrodon: Buizel wins.
    Buizel - Drapion: Drapion wins.
    Gliscor - Drapion: End of first episode

    2 - 1 = Ash is dominant.

    So I got the first six matchups right, where most thought Staraptor was going to be the fall guy xD

    It wasn't a selfpowered Ice Aqua Jet, because Gastrodon fired the Ice Beam at Buizel, but thank god its losing streak ended.

    I completely agree with the rest. I hope Nando's Roserade was enough for it this league, but at least it didn't fall against Gastrodon. The moment it used Close Combat on the ground was awesome, but then Gastrodon used Ice Beam and I thought it was going to cheapshot Staraptor from behind. I also liked how they mixed up the talk between Dawn, Brock, Barry, Reggie and the pokedex. Dawn is such a dunce, I'm pretty sure she already saw all of those pokemon before, well not ES Gastrodon, but nonetheless a Gastrodon she saw. Aggron in the episode where Mamoswine started listening and Drapion with J.

    I liked how we saw Paul and Reggie having another serious moment. I wonder what they were talking about before Dawn nudged her way into the conversation.

    Funny how we expected a lot from Aggron, but that it was a seemingly large fail pokemon:

    Aggron (Rock Head):

    Metal Claw
    Metal Sound
    Double Edge
    Iron Defence

    Gastrodon (Storm Drain):

    Muddy Water (Counter shield)
    Body Slam
    Water Pulse
    Ice Beam

    Drapion (?):

    Pin Missile
    Cross Poison

    Ash' pokemon have used:

    Pikachu:

    Volt Tackle (I think so)
    Iron Tail
    Thunderbolt

    Infernape:

    Flare Blitz
    Mach Punch
    (It's a safe bet that we'll see Flame Wheel and Flamethrower)

    Staraptor:

    Aerial Ace
    Close Combat
    (We're likely to see Brave Bird before it goes down)

    Buizel:

    Aqua Jet (Iced)
    Ice Punch
    Sonic Boom
    (We're likely to see it use Water Gun now to break free from Drapion)
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
