    Oh, someone on Bulbagarden brought up a good point to look at Hiyappu's move set:

    http://serebii.net/pokedex-bw/515.shtml

    It can't learn earthquake. It was likely mud sport like the other person said. So, Hiyappu used...

    Double Team / Water Gun / Mud Sport?

    Didn't see it use anything else.

    I hope Mamepato goes into this rebellious stage. Its mad at Ash for basically forgetting about it. TBH it swould be cool and would give Mamepato something different than Pidgeot, Noctowl, Swellow, and Staraptor.

    Brilliant. If this was the direction they are going I take back the stupid writers comment, but I doubt this is the case.

    Wonder if those are permanent cheerleaders/staff or just random people.

    Mijumaru is really growing on me. I've changed my mind - I think it WILL evolve and that it will become a powerhouse (mirroring the design of the Pokemon's faimly in general)

    It's cool.

    The move was Mud Sport. Hiyappu can't learn Level Ground, Earthquake or any of those moves. I think that Corn used Water Gun on the ground and then Mud Sport to make Pikachu trip and fall. On the mud

    Dento, Pod, and Corn wow! What a great character he turned out to be, I really like Dento and the element Monkeys, I think I found my new favorite character for this region at last. They were really good character's. The Gym battle was okay, nothing about it really stood out for me that much, but Pikachu going down shouldn't surprise anyone, it sure didn't surprise me, truthfully I would have been shocked had it won a fight. The Bird Pokemon that Ash caught (Who I don't know it's name) has still been absent and not used so far and Iris gave off a Misty like vibe during the start of this episode, yeah that'll be interesting. Anyway Dento, Corn, and Pod made this episode for me and even Team Rocket's meeting has me interested. Never thought I'd ever be happy to see more Team Rocket screen time. Anyway I hope Dento will continue to be a good character and not tank later on.

    I will have to agree, it been years since I have sat through a team rocket scene without fast fowarding it. It came to the point that i would skip the motto and some of their talking and went straight to the action. But this new Team Rocket has me wanting to see more. I hope that they don't go back to there old ways too quickly.

    Alright, now this is more like it. After four fairly average episodes we finally hit a great one. An episode with characters that have good personalities, nice battles, great music, and a fairly unexpected cliff hanger ending.

    I'm really liking how this battle is turning out, and even though I know it probably won't take up too much time during the next episode, it's good that they made it last more than one episode. I'm also enjoying Dento so far, along with Koon and Poddo. I hope those two appear every once in a while, it definitely be nice.

    I find the cheerleaders entertaining. I might get a laugh out of it if the writers were to make girls swoon over Dento, rather than the other way around as was with Brock. Although, considering how the writers over do gags, maybe they better not.

    Pokabu shows impressive prowess during its very first battle, and Mijumaru continues to be amusing. And Mamepato... well Iris mentioned it.

    Overall, it's the best Best Wishes episode far. Honestly, if the rest of Best Wishes keeps this up, I'll highly enjoy it.

    Ya know, I used to laugh when Pikachu was defeated back in earlier arcs, now I just pity him. :/

    Well these are the notes I thought when Ash was battling the gym leaders.

    Round 1: Pokabu vs Baoppu
    Ash, you have a mijumaru! Learn to use it! Oh well, it's Ash. We saw it coming. And at least Ash won that round.

    Round 2: Pikachu vs Hiyappu
    Well hey, Ash chose the right choice! Wait, he pikachu lost? Oh god, why did I knew that was going to come?

    Round 3: Mijumaru vs Yanappu
    NOW he sends out Mijumaru? Great strategies Ash. Oh well, I'm glad I'm going to see Mijumaru in action. Mijumaru fails, and here's out first cliff hanger of the season.

    Well that makes me guess that next episode will finish off with mijumaru winning and giving mijumaru some character development.

    Pikachu pisses me off in this episode. It's an annoying rat that acts like Mime Jr and then loses to something it easily has the advantage against. I would have liked it more if Ash finally used Mamepato or something so we could at least see something new instead of the standard "Pikachu gets its butt kicked after almost beating the league of the previous region." Someone is probably going to quote me and flame the piss out of what I just said, but still. /shortrant

    Anyway, this episode was okay. I liked Pokabu and Mijumaru's fight so far. Yanappu's battle style is cool, it just dodged all the attacks without even trying then launches a Solar Beam. Pokabu is also a beast. It took a bunch of hits during that battle but still managed to win.

    Great for a 1st gym battle, Hiyappu (??) used a ground move against Pika, haha the three gym leaders were kind of cool and Dento as the new companion is win, nice to know this was a two-parter after all.

    10/10 Best Wishes has been lovely so far!
    Like you did in every Sinnoh thread? 10/10 is pushing it a bit don't ya think? It would have been nice to see the Gym Leaders have more personality than just the generic "lol they has screaming fangirls lol" gag. Pokabu vs Boappu was definitely the highlight in the battles department, but that was just the standard Hoenn-Sinnoh battle. Nothing special, really.

    The one thing I did like was that Ash battled all three of the brothers. Pikachu is back to it's weak old self, who didn't see that coming?

    So far Dento seems as bland as Brock. Wonder how they're going to handle him on the main cast.

    But yeah, stop being a rabid, drooling fanboy. The episode certainly wasn't perfect. Had it taken place a few episodes earlier (5 to be exact) I'm sure your grade for it would have been much lower.

    Aside from Pikachu losing the Gym battle is pretty good so far.

    Great animation and attacks, and nice to see the fire starter get the first win.

    I honestly loved this episode. Other than Pikachu vs Hiyappu, the battles were all pretty amazing. Mijumaru's reactions during his battle with Yanappu were pretty hilarious, too. I really love Mijumaru.

    I also really like Dento a lot so far. From the looks of it, his role in the main cast probably won't be too different from Brock's, but he honestly has a much more interesting personality. Also, Yanappu seems like a much better fighter than both Geodude and Onix were when Ash battled Brock.

    Some of you are aware that electric Pokemon don't resist water attacks, right? Because when I see the "upset" fans saying "Oh no Pikachu lost to a water attack" well kindly take a look at the type effectiveness chart and you'll see water attacks to neutral damage to Electric type Pokemon, thus Pikachu can lose to a water attack just as nearly as much as a normal attack can knock out most other types. So I don't see why anyone would be upset for Pikachu losing to a water attack when it doesn't even resist water attacks.

    Now when Pikachu loses to Furro's Kenhorou's gust, then you can complain since Electric types do resist flying types and Gust is one of the weakest flying moves. But water gun, no. So get over it, Pikachu will end up kicking butt in the league and taking a slot of someone who actually needs it (and Pikachu will again cost Ash the league), let the Isshu Pokemon have their wins, while Pikachu takes a backseat.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    I thought it was a great episode, I loved Pokabu's battle he just owned that fire monkey and put it in its place. Pikachu losing to the monkey was dumb it's obvious a pokemon that can beat a Metagross, Dragonite, and Latios can't beat a monkey that has a type disadvantage -_- well type disadvantages aren't everything in the anime. Mijumaru made me lol.
    I especially loved when Pokabu turned and looked at the red hair guy after beating his Boappu and breathed fire.

    Great episode. Pokabu was awesome, Especially for a newly caught pokemon. I honestly saw nothing wrong with Pikachu losing. Corn showed some pretty good tactics. Mijumaru was hilarious. I loved how brave he acted while hiding behind Ash. He was a confident little coward. I think this is my favorite first gym episode.

    That wouldn't matter in the anime.

    Ash's temporary Raticate used High Jump Kick.
    Ash's Bulbasaur used Whirlwind(?) and Dig.
    Suzy/Brock's Vulpix used Agility.

    Pokabu did awesome! They just love making Pikachu weak at the start of every region! Judging by the preview of the next episode, I think that solarbeam will be a KO. I bet that even if Ash loses, he'll get the badge anyway. The gym rule is that Ash has to beat 2 out of 3 leaders right?
    Ash's team right now
