    Did Swellow at least manage to land an attack?

Oh well, last few minutes of the episode were good though. What did Brock say in his head?
    Ill take Swellow over Totodile, although those two and Kingler I rank as Ash's weakest 3 Pokemon

    Not beat per se, but damn, Pikachu was awesome here.

    Luster Purge looked pretty cool.

    Only point of remark is that Ash should've saved Gible for later, and that Pikachu shouldn't have bluntly go straight into those Giga Impacts.. What was it thinking???
    That was the best part.

    It's like knocking down a brick wall only to find a steel wall behind it.

    I love that they did this in a Pokemon anime. Everyone thought Darkrai was going to be the big contender.

    So, latios huh? This battle was epic.

    Swellow was a good choice for Ash. Sceptile and Swellow are damn fast.

    And according to me Pikachu was now the one in need of some wins. We were ignoring that little mouse. Pikachu is also strong one.

    In the end I think Ash said "I'll be the greatest Pokemon Master one day!" and Dawn said "I'll be the greatest Co-ordinator there is"
    Then Brock must have thought that he must think about his goal.

    Barry rushed out of the scene having a rushed ending as Barry does it always. Goodbye Barry you were an awesome character -_-

    All I can say is: Terrible ending to a bad series.

    It's no mystery that Takuto was just a cheap device to rush the DP ending.

    I'm both glad and sad that DP has ended. Glad because it sucked of its unneccessary stretch, painful fillers and then rushed ending. It should have ended year or two ago already. Sad because I know that Isshu will be even worse.

    Still, Takuto is nothing compared to Red (different canons, but still). Using ubers is n00bish. This is the only time I ever regretted that the tiers thingy doesn't exist in canon.
    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.

    Personally, I would have preferred something other than Latios. Like, a strong, non-Legendary Pokemon. I don't like the idea that Takuta has a bunch of Legendary Pokemon on his team. Darkrai, I can deal with it, it's cheap, but I can deal with it. If he sent out something like Zoroark or Salamence, I would have been okay with it. Two Legendary Pokemon was overkill, imo.

    I felt pretty good with this ending. If it wasn't for an overpowered Takuto, Satoshi probably would have won the tournament. The fact that his Sceptile and Pikachu took down two legendaries, Darkrai and Latios, are more than enough to satisfy me~

    I really did wish they had played an image song or an insert song like they have been doing with all the other awesome moments in DP.

    Well he was known as the Legendary trainer not the Darkrai trainer, now we know why he is the Legendary trainer.

    If we don't see Takuto in the next saga, I would say the ending was really awful.
    That being said, HURRAY for Ash!!!

    I can't say I like the fact that Takuto had 2 legendaries. I'd rather have enjoyed the remainder of Ash's poke'mon fighting Takuto's normal poke'mon. That is to say Sceptile beating another normal poke'mon after taking out Darkrai. Swellow gets 2 wins, and Pikachu another 1. I don't mind if Ash lost after that. But it could've been worse. And with which attack was Darkrai K.Oed?

    Sceptile is awesome taking down the seemingly invincible Darkrai!!!

    This definetely places Sceptile as Ash's Strongest Pokemon. Far above Charizard. Moan all you want Charizard lovers.

    Poor Torkoal ko'ed in 1 hit shame was expecting more, maybe he should of started with Over heat against darkrai instead of Flamethrower.

    I wonder what the final 4 pokemon are for Takuto? this could be strong indication he has 6 legendaries? he may also have latios's counterpart Latias?( forgot its name xD).

    Pauls battle was still epic though better then this roflpwn. Shame they had to rush the league ( Stupid pokemon contests - Needs to go it's pointless and waste of time!. Ash could be shown training his pokemon more often if it wasnt for crappy contests).

    1.Sceptile
    2.Charizard
    3.Infernape

    I was totally shocked that Latios was the big boss to be defeated in the end. I thought Darkrai would be the boss Ash had to overcome to win the battle. He beat it and then we get Latios out of left field it seems. I was proud of Pikachu though since it tied with a Legendary but the rest of the battle was horrible, even if I did know it would be really short. Ash's defeat personally stung :x

    Sorry to disagree with you Byakuya, Charizard would own Sceptile in a battle any day of the week. Remember, Darkrai also got hit by Gible and Heracross before succumbing to Sceptile. I agree that Sceptile is gonna be Ash's #2 though.

    Though to be fair this defeat was expected that he would be hammered even after defeating paul.

    just didnt think the defeat would be this severe? Maybe the writers should of let Ash use all his strongest pokemon ??

    Sceptile
    Charizard
    Infernape ( if not too injured?)
    Torterra
    Snorlax
    Pikachu

    Even if its not much varied in types go for brute power might of lasted longer will never know.

    An epic Leaf Blade.

    I don't think it used anything that even remotely looks like those two. Swellow can't even learn those attacks >.> No new moves, as far as I can tell.

    YE right, Gible and Heracross hardly did anything to Darkrai to remotely give Sceptile the upperhand.

    Id love to see a fight between Sceptile v Charizard even though type disadvantage Sceptile would win!. Charizard isnt even a pokemon Trainer by Ash for the most part!.

    Sceptile is even though he's been at Oaks for a while now, Sceptile is stronger thats reality.

    Yeah, I'd have enjoyed that except for the fact that Torterra is there. I lost a lot of faith in it. Kingler/Muk would be more suitable there. Besides they need redemption as well.

    Seems like the exact opposite in the anime. The fact he's using legendary Pokemon shows his skills as a trainer to be able to catch these Pokemon.

    The "using ubers is n00bish" mindset is idiotic. They're all Pokemon, you use whatever Pokemon you want legendary or not. Takuto is using the Pokemon that he feels will help him achive victory and it worked.

    The guy has these legendary Pokemon. He'd be a fool if he didn't use them.

    Indeed the other pokemon need redemption but this battle isn't the one i feel.

    Torterra hasn't won but it's battled well and is still learning it's trade shame it never learnt Solar Beam. That was disappointing, he had a move in Synthesis he Barely used what was the point in keeping it?? Solar Beam was the better choice.

    But Torterra is open to being replaced by Donphan

    True that, I mean my jaw just dropped ten inches when I saw Latios come out of the ball, then my frame froze and I was like.. darn..

    Anyway, might as well get this out of the way for the complainers.. Ash is the only person in the entire region of Sinnoh, to have beaten Takuto's Darkrai. Doesn't that say enough? Even moreso, he beat the monster AFTER DARKRAI as well.. That's probably the best outcome anybody has ever done against him.. That's why Ash was so happy during the finals! Takuto beat that trainer with only Darkrai, making him come the closest to beating the Sinnoh League Champion!

    Two legendaries might be cheap, but Ash put up a hell of a fight.

    I always thought that we started calling him that since that article said: 'Ash will battle a legendary'... Boy, were we trolled.. One legendary wasn't enough, no.. they have to use two!

    It's like AG.. Ash has to deal with this beat two legendaries quota.. A flying from a past region and one from the current! xD

    At least now we got the answer as to how Takuto was able to capture a legendary: he used a legendary to do so.

    Why would you want Swellow to get two wins? Its Ash's worst bird, maybe fastest, but it has nothing else that the others don't have.

    It can't learn either of those moves.. I think it just had a wtf face.. then Latios wtf faced it back..
    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.. -.-

    Lets not turn it into a Charizard vs Sceptile thread, and instead talk about the episode.
    So a Leaf Blade took out Darkrai. I was hoping Solar Beam atleast!

    But Torterra is open to being replaced by Donphan
    Donphan's a good choice, but I still think that Muk and Kingler could've pulled off a better job.

    Actually I'd say Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charizard and Sceptile are all equals. I don't include Squirtle because it hasn't proved itself the way the other four have. Pikachu, Charizard and Sceptile have all beat Legendary Pokemon while Bulbasaur has beat a Dusclops that beat Charizard (not to mention the tie with Meganium).

    Uh..they did do a decent bit of damage. There's no way Darkrai's going to roll over after a single Leaf Blade, y'know?

    Sceptile is even though he's been at Oaks for a while now, Sceptile is stronger thats reality.
    Let's not pass on such things as "fact", shall we?
