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.
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.
And either your blind, or haven't read through the thread. A lot of people are complaining that Pignite got the win.
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.But this points to Pignite being the powerhouse of Ash's team; I guess there's no reason for Oshawott to evolve now.
Besides, are you forgetting that Turtwig still evolved into Torterra despite Infernape being the star.
There is perfect reason for Oshawott to evolve.
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 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
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.
Satoshi doesn't deserve the badge. LoL
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).

And yes, I realize that, besides the Radio Show, the chances of that happening now are less than zero.
I'm busy with life outside the internet; I won't be on often
Well, I'm disappointed. Ash won his last badge in a Poison Gym that was blatant advertising. Opelucid was left in the shadows...

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.
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!
Personally to me this just seems like one of your posts that tries to spark up reasons on Oshawott staying unevolved.
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.Let's just be glad that Ash's team is finally shaping up, even if we have yet another Fire-type powerhouse.
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
