    Care to elaborate? They cheered for him because they are his friends.

    At least leavanny got a win, that's a plus. If it was up to me, I would've picked Leavanny, Unfezant, and Palpitoad to get wins, but I'm alright with the outcome. It was a great battle.

    Someone on another thread said that Iris was cheering for Ash because she didn't want him to lose and challenge the Opelucid City Gym, which makes sense since she's afraid to go there.

    I couldn't be bothered to wade through seven pages of Gym battle discussion. I assumed that nobody else had complained because everyone loves Pignite.

    Wow, the images to this episode look incredible. The battle as a whole looks brilliant.

    So Pignite defeated Scolipede, and by the looks of it very quickly. The writers are really glorifying him at the moment, I hope this dies down in BW2, he's really outshining Oshawott and Snivy in terms of strength now. I'd have preferred Unfezant or Palpitoad to get the win.

    Pikachu's win looks incredible, and seeing Ash about to give up and get cheered on by his friends was brilliant, the dramatic tension that seems to rise at that point will definetly be one of my favourite scenes.

    And finally, so it seems the writers are treating this episode as the end of a saga? "Next Time.... A New Beginning!", interesting. It's weird considering we've never had a region split up into sagas before.

    Either way, the final screenshot of Ash and Pikachu with all of the badges looks absolutely amazing.

    I didn't like it either, but where the hell do you get these ridiculous and insane facts from? Please, im dying to know.

    And either your blind, or haven't read through the thread. A lot of people are complaining that Pignite got the win.

    But this points to Pignite being the powerhouse of Ash's team; I guess there's no reason for Oshawott to evolve now.
    Possibly so, but being a stan for Oshawott (lol see what i did their? I said stan, the word you normally use when you want to create a debate on Oshawott evolving) i'd love to see him evolve into Samurott and become the main starter.

    Besides, are you forgetting that Turtwig still evolved into Torterra despite Infernape being the star.

    There is perfect reason for Oshawott to evolve.

    Ash is not the type to give up on gyms and go find another one to challenge. If he had lost to Homika, he would've rechallenged her.

I certainly hope it's not the latter, the last thing this series needs is more filler.
    He'll be passing the time in East Unova, training for and participating in the World Tournament from B2/W2, along with Dawn and Cynthia, and potentially even more returning characters. Hardly "nothing". Hardly filler.

    Yes, we all remember that Torterra is fully evolved, but we also remember that while he was a Grotle and for the rest of the DP Saga, he was the biggest loser on Ash's team when it came to important matches (Another victim of the Worf Effect).

    I loved how Iris was so supportive of Ash, with the drums, costumes, and everything. I'm just wondering where she got the costumes and paint from? LOL

    Maybe she got them from Axew's bedroom in her hair?

    I'm hollering. Why would you use Turtwig's evolution as an example; need I remind you how pathetic Turtwig became when he finally evolved into Grotle, and then from Grotle into Torterra? You're really reaching this time. I think everyone can see that Pignite is going to become the next powerhouse, much like Charizard and Infernape before him.

    She definitely had it in her hair. xD

    I also loved how she forced Dento to dress up, they're such good friends. That's why I love our BW trio, it's so enjoyable, has great chemistry and feels like an actual family. Also, did anyone notice Iris had electro motif and Dent had fire motif? Zekrom and Reshiram? Yin and yang? Black and white? :P

    Excellent! Let's hope Oshawott becomes pathetic after evolving as well. :P

    What? Homika gave Chaoboo a Pecha Berry after the battle with Pendror, she said she wants Ash's last three Pokemon in tip top shape for them to battle her last.

    Pardon me, but I'm a bit confused. According to Homika's character bio, Garbador used 5 moves in its battle: Double Slap, Slam, Hyper Beam, Gunk Shot, and Venoshock. Is this true, and if it is, why?! Ever since DP started the anime has been consitent that a Pokemon will only uyse a max of 4 moves during any battle (unless it evolves, which in that case the Pokemon will still only use 4 total moves), so why did they break this rule randomly now. Surely Garbador would be fine without one of those moves, so i see no reason to bring back the days of Orange League Drake's Dragonite. i considered these episodes rediculous enough with it being a 3 vs 6 and the promotion of a weak gymleader for the sake of advertising, but if Garbador really used 5 moves... well, I don't know.

    Who was in charge of writing this episode? I want someone to blame (besides myself for getting too excited about something in BW).

    Oshawott will never evolve because,like herpes,Oshawott will never vanish.

    I'm pretty sure there's a closet in Axew's bedroom inside Iris's hair that is full of clothes. That would also explain the snow clothes they were wearing that magically appeared at the Icirrus Gym :P

Anyway, I loved that Iris was cheering for Ash so enthusiastically, even if it was for her own reasons. It seems Palpitoad wasn't dead after all, but the fact that it was overwhelmed by Garbodor was ridiculous; the writers just love trolling that thing. It was a good Gym battle all around, and I'm glad it's over since the speculation was getting too overwhelming imo.

    Thank you for accepting that.

    Not so much that Chao/Pig is a powerhouse, and moreso that the Pendra/pede was a pushover.

    Well, I'm disappointed. Ash won his last badge in a Poison Gym that was blatant advertising. Opelucid was left in the shadows...

    Why does it matter whether Torterra was poorly treated? Your practically saying Pignite is the main starter and therefore no other starter can evolve, im stating that we've had two fully evolved starters before. Nothing about how they're treated.

    And it makes me laugh how your missing out Sceptile, as if your trying to hint that only the fire types can be the main starter.

    My point was that even though Turtwig did evolve in the presence of another powerhouse (Chimchar's line), his evolution only made things worse for Ash's team because he became useless due to his mobility issues and a bunch of other problems. Let's face it, he was better as a Turtwig. I don't know why anyone would want another pointless evolution. Let's just be glad that Ash's team is finally shaping up, even if we have yet another Fire-type powerhouse.

    Nope no Slam. Serebii is sometimes incorrect in some moves in the pokemon's bios.

    It wasn't always so obvious though. Not that I have a problem with Ash battling Homika instead of Drayden; I just thought it was weird that Ash battled against her in Best Wishes instead of Best Wishes 2. If they were going to promote a BW2 character, they should have done it right.

    The gym battle delivered overall. I would have rather had Unfezant defeating Scolipede instead of Pignite, but I'll take it. It was a surprisingly well paced battle with it only being a 6vs3.

    All in all, Homika owns. And next time is a new beginning, I guess!

    Alright yes. He definetly was better off as Turtwig, but we've already seen that Oshawott evolving into Dewott would not cause him any problems. We haven't seen Samurotts mobility/speed yet so I won't argue back with a solid factor, but Samurott definetly seems capable of moving fast so i don't see the problem.

    Personally to me this just seems like one of your posts that tries to spark up reasons on Oshawott staying unevolved.

    Let's just be glad that Ash's team is finally shaping up, even if we have yet another Fire-type powerhouse.
    Eh his team hasn't shaped up any differently than when Pignite evolved, and the last time I checked quite a few people were unhappy with the amount of unevolved Pokemon at this point. His team definetly looks shaped up in this battle that's for sure considering he's used all of his evolved Pokemon. Pignite is a fire type powerhouse yes, but there's no point acting like he's the main starter, It's too early to judge.

    Like you said though, we should all be glad. And in order to be glad, i'd like to hope Oshawott will either:

    -stay unevolved but look and battle like a major powerhouse
    -evolve and become a powerhouse
    -become the main starter as a samurott
