    Default Mission: Defeat Your Rival! (765)

    Fierce Fighting! Win Your Way Through the Rival Battles!!

    The preliminaries of the Unova League continue and the battle between Ash and Trip is unbelievably tense. With Serperior constantly evading Pikachu's attacks, Ash soon finds that he may be out of the tournament earlier than he thought. Will Ash manage to get through Serperior's defences and win? In the other side of the Unova League, Kotetsu and Bianca start a battle. Using Samurott against Escavalier, the battle gets even more tense than before when Samurott's attacks seem to do no damage on Escavalier. Who will win the battles and get through to the finals?

    Escavalier was something I never heard of, maybe it learned Iron Defense.

    There is no stream

    Bianca won
    Kotetsu won
    Stephan won

    Serperior defended against Pikachu's electric attacks by grounding itself with the tail. It hit with a barrage of Dragon Tails and then constricted Pikachu. Ash has had flashbacks to previous defeats.

    Pikachu's tail gets free so uses Iron Tail to free itself

    So does that confirm that the tail wrapping around Pikachu and squeezing him was a move? Constrict or Wrap?

    Maybe he's getting information from someone watching it in Japan, but yeah, you could be right.

    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Serperior is supposed to be a defensive Pokemon yet it gets 1HKO'd every time.

    There are other ways to watch it. Our recent program was easier to use compared to them.

    I actually saw this one coming.

    Raise a pokemon to be too evasive and then it's not going be capable of sustaining damage when it does get hit.

    So basically she boosted Escavalier's defenses yet Kotetsu used a phy. attack rather than special? Well I suppose the logic here is Anime=/=games.

    Attract one more time. Its Bianca's signature move.

    They, the writers, need to work on their in-game knowledge.

    The strangest thing about this episode was attract on Emboar. Who would get attracted to it? That Samurott was sick

    BTW, who was female? Emboar or Samurott.

    Cheers Serebii. Good stuff. I suppose Kotetsu is supposed to be the anime variant of Nate?

    the end result of Trip not raising it right.

    Being speedy and evasive is nice and all, but if that's all your gonna do then when it comes time to get hit your gonna go down hard quickly.

    Of course, Trip's reaction upon losing is just freaking priceless.

    I still don't get how Pikachu beat Serperior though. One minute Pikachu uses an Iron Tail/Electroball combo against Serperior's Dragon Tail, & then the next minute BOOM! Pikachu comes out of the smoke just fine while Serperior looks swirly-eyed. How is it possible?

    From what i understood the combo worked something like this, first Electro Ball neutralized Dragon Tail which then allowed Iron Tail to connect and defeat Trip's Serperior.

    It seems that Trip's Serperior is good at Speed and Power, but isn't so good defensively.

    Also from what i understood, the reason Kotetsu's Samurott was able to defeat Bianca's Escavalier who boosted its defense (with Iron Defense) was because of Razor Shell's secondary effect which lowers the opponents defense plus it could also be possible that Bianca's Escavalier ability is Swarm, which also allowed Razor Shell to land a critical-hit.
