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.
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.
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.
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.
