More "THIS IS NOT EVEN MY FINAL FORM!!!!" antics from Fraud? Check.

Pretty much confirming Rug and Karuta - the two least relevant protagonists - are dead? Check.

Hero getting mercilessly beaten down by the villain? Check.

Said hero then pulling out a complete asspull powerup that's going to inexplicably defeat the villain in the finale? Check.

Looks like just about every flag for a generic rushed shounen finale has been tripped. I'm pretty disappointed, honestly. The only way I'd be surprised at this point is if Ryouga dies after defeating Fraud because he's fused too far with Zekrom to return.
