    Poor Kibago he actually endured attacks so the thing is getting stronger :P, sad seeing it get trashed.

    Dreamcoat Emolga would just run and Excadrill doesn't give a **** XD.

    Damn Excadrill is a badass, he was putting it on Beartic but got smashed by a fightning attack I believe, stream cut on the attack.

    Iris Flashback Time!

    Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Bonnie: Come on, Dedenne! I want that Gym Badge!
    Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

    Haxorus versus Excadrill.

    And I'm guess Excadrill will lose.

    Iris and Drayden were never meant to be related

    How so? if they are ingame? I haven't heard anything from the anime directors saying they wouldn't make him her gramps, you mean they weren't meant to be family ingames either?

    Anyway Haxorus destroyed Excadrill pretty bad and he seems frustrated.

    They were never related even in the games. Anyways that was a pretty awesome battle. Hah and another hah to all those who thought Iris and Dento for that matter wouldn't get good development. So far this trio has been balanced pretty well.

    Woot? I'm confused now everyone says he is her gramps, weird and I actually though I read that ingame.


    Episode ended best Iris episode yet, Excadrill wasn't just disobeying her, he felt frustrated since he lost that is way he wasn't obeying.

    Iris sleeps with it and talks with it, it leaves middle night and goes to train to learn a new attack which seems to be Metal Burst I think by the animation.

    Rematch is freaking awesome and epic, Beartic and Excadrill end up tie and Iris goes to him and seems to encourage it along with Dent, Pikachu and Satoshi and he seems happy and hugs Iris.

    Damn what a nice episode, the flashback was nice, the reason why it was disobeing was diferent aka it basicly wasn't disobeying it was just frustrated and only did something when it really had to defend itself like in the Scolipede episode, so the issue being resolved in one episode is understandable.

    Great episode in all aspects, Beartic and Excadrill were super badass oh and Langley seemed to be a sore loser whining that Iris didnt beat her with Dragon type I believe.

    he just seemed grandfatherly was all, so folks went with it.

    RE: the ep.... what is with pokemon and characters/rivals whose entire personality is to obsessively hate on something/someone and act like complete dicks? i don't even find it entertaining. it's just annoying. why is this allowed to happen?

    i hated that character. i hope she never comes back. she eats three people's breakfasts and just walks off and they just stand there. this is not how things work! dento and ash should hold her arms while iris swings from a vine and kicks her repeatedly in the stomach until she vomits blood. that's my ending.

    Oh so that is why? weird lol.

    I really didn't like her too much either, when she reappears we might get to know more about her since Iris issue is resolved now, she just seems ticked off all the time.

    thesmilewolfy I just think it was frustrated from losing badly to Haxorus but since I don't know japanese I can't really be sure of it.

    sunny love the picture in you signature, pure win XD.

    Excadrill development and it obeyed Iris in one episode, greeeaatt. BW just keeps getting better, doesn't it. At least it seemed like a nice episode after all.

    3 questions.

    Did Langley know Iris, if so, how?

    Why did Excadrill disobey Iris in the first place?

    Is Langley now Iris's rival, because the same thing that told us about Ash getting a new Pokemon in the upcoming episode, said that Iris gets a Rival.

    Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Bonnie: Come on, Dedenne! I want that Gym Badge!

    1- I think she didn't, I didn't catch the start of the episode, I started watching when the opening ended.

    2- Like I said I think it was just frustrated not actually disobeying her, but he didn't come out , out of frustration but if sunny or Sushi or whoever else can watch the episode and explain that to us it would be cool.

    3- Most likelly she seems to be kind of hatefull and I think she will want to beat Iris again, plus I think she bragged that Iris didn't do it with a Dragon type so I can see Axew evolving and beating her later in the arc, not a fan of her atitude like sunny said but I hope we got some developments on that later on.

    I really don't mind Excadrill being obedient in one episode since now we can actually see more of it finally. Also, I'm kinda glad Excadrill isn't treated as an invincible force, just a strong one, I was kinda worried that it would for some reason.

    1. She knew OF her. She said "You're Iris right? I've been looking for you." Iris didn't question this. None of them questioned ANY of the girl's really stupid behaviour, which drove me nuts. Ash and Dento were like vegetables.

    2. This was a bit confusing to me, but it seems Excadrill's bad loss against Shaga was because of a bad call by Iris. Excadrill indicated to her it was a bad call but she made him do it anyway and he lost. This is why he went into his shell, he couldn't handle the loss after they'd won something like 100 times in a row. This is why he would not come out, listen to Iris, obey her commands, etc etc. He felt like she built him up and told him he could do anything and win all the time and then sabotaged him.

    Is what I think was going on. Iris began crying and apologizing because she realized with Dento's advice she never bothered understanding how sabotaged Excadrill felt, that it was her own fault, he wasn't just sad he lost, he blamed her for not listening to him.

    3. Probably. I want her to just be gone forever though. So annoying. XD

    I figured she had to have gotten Excadrill as a Drillbur cause there was no way she would've had a powerful pokemon for no reason.

    Beartic seems kinda odd looking to me in the anime cool yet strange at the same time.

    A nice development episode for Iris, now she can sit back again for a while.

    People need to stop hating on Langley. If she didn't come along, Iris would have never got Excadrill or her other Pokemon out to battle. And no one ever comes to Ash's defense whenever he, May or Dawn comes up against their mean yet some what annoying rivals. So let Iris handle her own for once.

    My ideal battle ever!

    I'm not hating on her, I thought the battles were good.

    Beartic doesn't exactly strike me as an Ash pokemon though, if he got one i'd bet money it would conflict with excadrill which lead to problems between him and iris.

    i'll gladly dislike any of this show's rivals/CoTD's whose entire personalities revolve around being utterly dis-likable, hateful or obnoxious :P

    the girl didn't have to be a dragon-type racist and a rude, theiving glutton in order for those battles to happen. it wasn't the girl being a completely over the top ******* that did the trick, it was the move-- what was it? rock smash? i don't remember, rock something -- that had defeated excadrill before and then did it again, meaning he had to learn something new to overcome it.

    we have rivals like jun, who can be really arrogant and obnoxious but also really funny, endearing and a great friend and supporter to ash, all at once. even shooti isn't a complete jerk, and has his nice little side story (that boy is going to be so shocked when he finds out he totally misinterpreted adeku's advice...).


    characters whose personality is "this person defeated me once so my entire life now revolves around hating him" (cabernet and dento) or "a dragon master from ryuu no sato once beat me so now i am a dragon-type racist and my entire life is dedicated to being a really, really big jerk to all dragon-type owners, and stealing and eating three people's breakfasts"... i just don't understand it, and it's so over the top, it's not entertaining at all, it's just stupid and annoying.


    so yeah i am going to hate on characters that are really stupid and annoying :P
