Yeah, Ash and Paul's epic battle and good animation made this episode arc awsome.

Torterra didn't deserve to go down so easily here.

That dosen't make this battle any less epic IMO.

Eh still could have gone with more Torterra action either way.

Paul neglected his Chimchar, so it deserved to win and it did. I'm glad it defeated Paul's Ninjask as an Infernape.

Beating Electivire and Aggron was more then enough I'm not saying that he didn't deserve it but he didn't need to get 3 wins. Especially when poor Torterra was the butt of all jokes in every rival battle he competed in.

Paul's Drapion was faster than Torterra. it had a speed advantage, so it won the battle. Torterra wasn't fast enough to heal itself using Synthesis.

Speed means nothing. Torterra just lost because it was what was needed to help Ash finally understand how to take down Drapion later with Gliscor.

Gliscor was faster than torterra and he can fly, so his win makes sense. Speed can play important roles in battles, and that's how Gliscor won the battle.

The main contribution was that through losing half his team that Ash knew how to avoid Gliscor losing. Also Torterra only really lost on Ash's fault of using Torterra even though he had no effective moves that could work on Drapion and because Toxic Spikes was out.

Yes, that's one of the reasons why Torterra didn't get to win against Drapion.

It depends who you mean. Honestly I think he would have easily been able to handle Aggron and Gastrodon. Though I still question why Ash would have chosen Staraptor and Buizel over Torterra who had a 4x advantage against Gastrodon.

Probably because of Ice beam. I think instead of Ninjask, I wish Paul used a different pokemon that Torterra could have beaten, of course that means Ash would have recalled Torterra before Gliscor was used.

Wow Paul's Toxic Spikes strategy was highly effective and I didn't expect to see Drapion defeat Buizel, Staraptor and Torterra in a row. I wish Paul used Ursaring and Magmortar instead of Ninjask and Froslass tho. ^^;

This second part of the Shinji versus Satoshi Shinou League match was an improvement over the first part, in part due to Shinji's Dorapion sweeping Satoshi's Mukuhawk, Bouysel, and Dodaitose. Yukimenoko versus Pikachu was good too, but Dorapion versus Glion at the end had me at the edge of my chair.
Shinji had obviously changed up his tactics for this match. He probably knew that Satoshi was expecting heavy hitters like Ringuma and Booburn, so he went with different Pokemon to catch him off guard.

I was dismayed on how Torterra was handled in this episode, just wished it could've damaged Drapion even more as it could've been easily taken out by Gliscor by the end of the episode. But no...
