    It was new to Unfezant at least.

    Too bad Unfezant's moveset is lacking.

    I wish Gamefreak would create a better move than aerial ace, and not let anyone else (except non fliers) get aerial ace. I'm so sick of that move. It was very annoying seeing that Unfezant got aerial ace. Primarily because they choose NOW to give it to her. As if aerial ace is the coolest move ever. Sorry but I expected Sky attack, seeing as how someone else had a sky attack Tranquill. They choose to give a fully evolved Pokemon a weaker move? That's like giving a fully evolved fire Pokemon ember when it already had flamethrower.

    My point is, Tranquill shouldn't have fully evolved to learn aerial ace, it should've already had it and learned Sky Attack instead.

    Krokorok has HUGE potential, its just a shame that the writers may never give it a proper a story. Look what they did to Gible back in D/P.. Terrible terrible writing.
    I agree with both, at least brave bird wouldve been cool, i was getting very hyped but then boom, it was arial ace, and i was like seriously?

    The gible thing too, i thought ash would continue keeping it through unova, like with aipom, then have a garchomp to replace charizard as hi really strong pokemon but nooo

    I'll update this sometime

    Unfezant can't learn Brave Bird by any means...if you said Sky Attack though

    I don't get why they pulled out the Aqua Ring trash.

    First it heals a burn and basically looks like a Recover. Then it conveniently stops electric moves but in the air battles, Skyla had no problem admitting that Swanna would have lost to a Zebstrika.

    Pikachu needed to conveniently lose so Tranquil could come in, dish a hit and take much more, then evolve out of no where and win. Simple as that

    im pretty sure he got hold of a gameshark sometime, but yeah, sky attack is better; i think she'll learn it in another battle or ash will teach her, if ash knows what a sky attack is

    Ignoring how it was used in the battle against Cilan, I can see why it would be able to deflect electricity.

    If we take the base idea that water conducts electricity, then it would make a lot of sense that in the Pokemon world using aqua ring would redirect electric attacks away from the Pokemon while it "loops" through the aqua ring preventing it from hitting the user.

    but in the air battles, Skyla had no problem admitting that Swanna would have lost to a Zebstrika.
    Zebstrika is stronger than Pikachu. In game Zebstrika is 197 base stat points higher. If that's not enough Zebstrika is also about 5x bigger than Pikachu.

    Zebstrika should be a lot harder to take down than Pikachu.

    Having A Swanna Beat Pikachu and Deflect Thunderbolt!? Not the best advertisment for a Water/Flying type. Especially since Aqua Ring only restores HP.

    did the dubbers actually fix the wing attack issue? Cause i didn't hear Ash call for it in the dub.

    amazing when the dub does things correctly

    What if Unfezant uses Wing Attack again.

    Ash will have to keep yelling "Attack now!!" (what he yelled in this battle) Then the people watching the dub will think Ash keeps cheating.

    I think it would have been better for them to leave it alone.

    I'm glad Ash took that annoying Skyla down a peg or two and got her to back to battling. Man, she was annoying. >:| I'm also glad they had Tranquil evolve in something besides a competition like they did with Swellow and Staraptor with those Pokeringer games. It would have been neater if Krokorok could have done some damage with his bite attack against swoobat, since it would be super-effective against a part-psychic type.

    Same old gym battle evolutions. I don't see why Unfezant couldn't have evolved somewhere else. At least the battle was good...

    I'm glad Ash beat Skyla. It was a great opportunity for Tranquil to evolve. I was wondering why Ash scanned Unfezant again when he did that last episode but at least it said information about the female Unfezant.

    I always think it's the female Unfezants that are the ones with the pink.... uh, stuff on it's head (I can't remember what the term for it is).

    My top favorites

    This episode is the reason why I still love BW as a series, I really love how Ash just showcased which pokemon he was gonna use before the battle, just because he's that confident in his pokemon. Skyla was also just perfectly douchy, but not unlikable IMO.

    As for the battle itself, I really dug that too, flying gyms are prolly my favorite gyms outisde maybe Ice, and the battles were nice and fast. the evolution was convienient, but given the anime usually show evolutions as being triggered by bursts of emotion, I kiinda buy it.

    10/10.

    In this episode, I found Skyla to be overconfident and it cost her the win. Ash's Tranquill was amazing and the evolution was amazing and even beating Swanna was amazing, too. Even though disappointed that Pikachu lost to Swanna despite having an obvious type advantage.

    I liked the gym's layout especially the hoops and especially how Tranquill evolved and paved the way for Ash winning the Jet badge. Skyla was such a cool gym leader as well and I just wish Krokorok had done more.

    This one wasn't as good as the one against Clay for me because we had seen Skyla's tactics already...

    I liked both of these gym battles since I like the animation in both. Unfezant (as a Tranquill) could have used more battling beforehand but it took out Swoobat before evolving so I didn't mind it too much. Better than another PokeRinger evolution in my opinion.
    Do you like Fan-fiction? How about deciding on different choices? If you like both, come join this Face-Off where you get to decide on the outcomes for what I write!
