If i remember the same happened with May's Bulbasaur when it used Petal Dance, but that was only when it over used that move.
This is also the reason why they gave Axew Giga Impact was so that it gets a much powerful attack without any draw backs (in the anime the move doesn't tire out the user like in the games) and can be used repeatedly.

Judging by the scene of Krookodile and Dragonite's battle Outrage is the least likely option at this point . We would have seen it confused
The anime where Stunfisks fly and Meowths talk. Where Oshawotts pop out of pokeballs and tranquills use wing attack. What more could you ask for, Oshawott evolving?. THE ANIME !
98% of fans believe that Ash's Oshawott will not evolve. If you are part of the 2% that believes in Samurott, copy and paste this into your sig and screw the haters! (Started by PrinceGray)
75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature. (Started by SkittyLover77)
i2i didn't say he thought Iris would catch it, he just said that he thought it would come back and face Dragonite. But the idea of Iris catching more than Ash is ludicrous, unless that was a typo.

Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is.
Spoiler:- League battle that I wanted:
Oh well, at least five of those appeared in the league.. -.-
Why do people think that the same Hydreigon is going to make a return?
All it did was battle Dragonite at the beginning of the episode and that was it. It's ridiculous that people think just because it injured it that someone will catch it and it will have a long standing rivalry with Dragonite. It's not like it's brought up in Dragonite's memories like Haxorus is for Excadrill. I highly doubt any type of rivalry will be built out of their short lived battle and I don't think we'll be seeing the same Hydreigon again.
what if ash catchs that hydriogeon :O i'd loved to see that
As for Hydro Cannon, well Barry's Empoleon used to use it non stop without getting tired.
Similar thing happens with Overheat and Leaf Storm in the anime as well.
Overheat is only known to lose power with each usage (as against the game where the move causes stat drop), while the user is still able to perfectly use other moves (example, Ash's Torkoal and Charizard).
Whereas Leaf Storm doesn't cause any problem like that (example, Paul's and Ash's Torterra and Ash's Snivy).
Giga Impact has its draw backs. The user can't move for a while (a reason for which Ash's Gliscor use its gliding techniques to distance itself from the opponent). But for some reasons a lot of Pokémon can spam Hyper Beam and Leaf Storm without side effects. Plot conveniences?
Adopt one yourself! @Pokémon Orphanage
Anyway, what's the general opinion on Ash's Palpitoad regarding evolution? Personally I see absolutely no reason to NOT evolve him especially since it'd be a handy way of adding a fourth move into his arsenal. Also every other reserve he has (unless you count Scraggy) is confirmed to be evolving fully except Boldore who needs to be traded. The new opening's pretty much the only thing that holds Seismitoad back imo.

This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciated starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig. Started by Dax-360
Also i have seen a lot of other pokemons use Giga Impact in the anime (BW series as well) without any drawbacks like Lenora's Herdier or those few wild Aerodactyl's back in DP or that guy's Simisage back in Donamite.
The only explanation that come in my mind about that is that the stronger and more "battle fit" the Pokémon is, the less time it needs to recover from the move. And no, Gliscor still had the side effect during the battle against Paul. It's explicitally said that it used its gliding technique (learned from the Air Master) to avoid any assaults after using Giga Impact (since he couldn't move).
So… I expect to see Axew suffering from the GI draw back (since he still has medium battling skills) and overcoming it during the series progression.

So you thought you were the very best, Like no one ever was...think again!! Coming this fall...a new magical power will be unveil!!!

I haven't posted a prediction in a while now so I'll go a head and do it.
Pikachu: You don't say?
Unfezant: Not much to say about this one. I think she could use a new move or two since her current moveset is kind of bland Heat Wave would be nice or Sky Attack.
Servine: Snivy really doesn't have much of a reason not to evolve. She doesn't really appear that much so maybe evolution could change that if she evolves I could see it happening against Trip or maybe during Ash's battle with Marlon if he battles him.
Pignite: I'd actually be quite happy if Pignite stays as it is. We've seen Emboar a few times so far and it's kind of boring.. Pignite has shown that it's pretty strong as it is and pretty fast at that so it's pretty balanced. If it evolves into Emboar I just hope it doesn't get the Torterra treatment.
Oshawott: Unfortunately I can't see this guy evolving. It seems like he achieved mascot status and because of that the writers are going to shove him in our faces as much as they can.
Krookodile: Confirmed to evolve against Dragonite. Krookodile got a lot of new moves via the Black Version 2 and White Version 2 move tutor so maybe he'll learn one of those moves I'd like him to learn Dragon Pulse or Super Power. Other then that maybe he can develop a rivalry with Dragonite.
Scraggy: If Axew evolves Scraggy might as well evolve too. If he learns a new move Dark Pulse would be good for him so he could finally get a dark type move. And maybe he could get Head Smash instead of Headbutt or Iron Head.
Leavanny: Not much to say about this one.. he could use some new moves though Electro Web would definitely be interesting it replace String Shot he should get X-Scissor as well.
Boldore: Not much to say about this one either.. I hope he evolves though Ash hasn't had a trade evolution yet so Boldore to Gigalith would be a nice start for him.
Palpitoad: I really think he needs to evolve.. but he appears so seldom I really can't see it happening if he evolves it should be before the league though.
Espeon: Ash's final capture before the Unova League. As an Eevee it would be a very affectionate and playful Pokemon as an Espeon it would keep that same personality but it would be sort of vain as well. He/She would evolve before the Unova League during a training battle or something like that giving him his first psychic type Pokemon.
