    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.

    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.
    Although I wonder how Torterra would do against Paul's other Pokemon?

    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...

    I know a lot of people might disagree with me here, but I thought it seemed like Ninjask presented a much bigger threat than Froslass. Although this could be due to the incredibly non-threatening voice given to Froslass.

    Ninjask was fast, but Froslass was stronger. Granted, I wish Paul had used Ursaring instead.

    When ash sent out torterra, Reggie said ash shouldn't have done that. I never understood what he meant to this day. Can somebody please explain?
    Ash's team right now

    I didn't find this episode as enjoyable as when I first watched it either. That's not to say that I didn't like the episode. It's always nice to see Pikachu battling at its peak performance; it's just too bad that it's going to get nerfed soon.
