    Yep pretty much. As a gym leader he thinks the way she does that is wrong and doesn't help young trainers grow.

    Yeah a lot of people have said that too.

    But not at all, Volkner just left the badges out for people to grab, if Skyla's thinks your gonna lose, no badge for you

    She basically just doesn't think battling is really needed to know who wins. She thinks her knowledge of how battles will go is good enough, and doesn't bother with battling to see if she's right.

    I just felt like pointing it out...seeing as Skyla at least is confronting the challengers, but I find it hilarious that they all appear younger then Ash in the preview and that they all have lower staged Pokemon

    I'll be more then happy for Stunfisk to get a win but base on the next episodes summary I see a lost for Cilan maybe if we're lucky a draw with Stunfisk and Swanna KO each other.

    It will most likely get a win here, or a tie. I really hope I'm not wrong...

    Since it airs in the few hours, I am happy with my last prediction.

    [ Crustle ] vs [ Swoobat ] : Crustle wins.
    [ Crustle ] vs [ Unfezant ] : Crustle is returned.

    Hopefully I'm close enough.

    Why, I can't help but wonder, are the anime writers making SKYLA similar to Volkner in this position, when ELESA was the one in the games to canonly be stated to take after Volkner? Why didn't they do this with Elesa, instead of fixating on her position as a model?

    Well I guess they could have, but decided to go with the model thing with Elesa and focus on Bianca's growth. I think they did this for Skyla to give her a different personality than her in game self, which isn't that memorable compared to others.

    For the being able to predict and because of that not battling storyline to really make sense, Skyla's Pokemon's typings actually fits better. Elesa's Model storyline/background was unique to use for the Anime and popular so they went with that instead.

    I'm not disagreeing with you - in fact, that's an excellent point - but when was it stated that Elesa is directly like Volkner? I just can't remember anything like that.

    Well I guess they could have, but decided to go with the model thing with Elesa and focus on Bianca's growth. I think they did this for Skyla to give her a different personality than her in game self, which isn't that memorable compared to others.
    I still fail to see any actual development for Bianca in that episode...

    No not as a league contender, but she grew as a person. It was evident to Bianca's father that she had grown since she left on her journey and that he didn't have to worry so much about her.

    Even if what you said is true about her taking after Volkner, I don't see the point of having 2 Electric-type gym leader's who don't want to battle. Besides, in-game wise, Elesa has a better storyline then Skyla. With Skyla all you do is just go to the city, meet up with Pops Juniper & she then heads to Celestial Tower. You Meet up with her there & ring a bell & then she leaves. With Elesa, you had the Bianca storyline which seemed way better than Skyla's, so it would make sense to keep Elesa's storyline & giving Skyla something better than going up a tower & ringing a bell.

    I agree, Skyla was the least memorable, and in my experience in the the game least challenging of the gym leaders. Giving her this story ads to her personality for the Anime's purposes.

    This is just my opinion, if you don't support the main character of the show, why bother watching.

    From what I remember.
    So two loses and one was for the plot, it's lost against Darmanitan was unfair, but it seems like it had been with Red Meteor for a while.

    That'd be a total repeat and if it happens I'll be mad as hell.
    Sure, it'd be a repeat in terms of Bianca and Cilan having both lost, but these would be under different circumstances.

    Ya you need to go back and watch those episodes again lol, whenever he pops out he loses. I can't even remember him winning once.

    Mijumaru and Scraggy take up a spot on the team by never being rotated, therefore yes, when they appear, others can't.

    Also I'm not saying don't appear, I'm saying don't appear unless Ash calls him out just like the rest of the pokes.
    I never said it was a positive thing, so don't take words out of my mot. I just asked how it was dumb.

    No, I don't need to go back and watch any episodes. It just turn out that he hasn't popped out of his Pokeball, where he actually battles that much. I thought he did it with Pansage and he could have won against Blitzle, if it wasn't for Blitzle's double kick.

    The starters don't/hardly get rotated, and sure Scraggy would take up a spot on his team, whenever he appears, there's still a chance for another one to appear.

    Plus Ash could always rotate in an episode. So lame the writers for not doing that.

    Well at least Oshawott shows initiative and he doesn't wait in his Pokeball sometimes, to be called out.

    Being realistic, we know God-Rock is getting at least one win.

    The stuff Fuuro says during Swanna vs. God-Rock, implies he beat Kenhollow at the least with the Shell Break + Rock Wrecker combo.

    By nature of evolving and being Dento's powerhouse, he cannot help but be the main battler most of the time now?
    Well if it isn't n official gym match, Unfezant could be swapped out.

    And Crustle could be returned during the match or she knows the combo without her Pokemon going down, but I expect Crustle to defeat Unfezant.

    Crustle has only won like 4 or so battles. Just because it has one all of the few battles it has been in doesn't really dignify it as a Powerhouse in my opinion.

    What if Cilan is helping Ash out. Sure, Ash should do things on his own accord, but a little help from the sidelines, whether it be from Iris or Cilan, wouldn't be that bad.

    But it tied and it unfairly won against Joltik, because it fell on it.

On the other end, Lenora was able to switch Pokemon because that was part of her Roar/Mean Look strategy.
    Who says that is the reason it didn't have Volt Switch. It's a move, so it should be fine.
