    My point wasn't that Oshawott already has too many, I'm just saying its a slippery slope from overshown starter to Pikachu status.

    And you think base stage starters are obligated to do well in pokemon leagues? Johto was almost 10 years ago.

    This seems to be your catch phrase. Now, he does but in Unova his stage starters doesn't even look league ready, corphish at least could harden spam I guess, Buizel got ice punch, Gible got Draco Meteor. Let me remind you how the darkrai battle turned out for said stage one. NEWSFLASH: It lost hard. What you expect cuteness and sass to carry them through the league where supposedly the best trainers in all of Unova go to compete?

    Scraggy is a base stage Pokémon and even gave Ash a victory in the League, actually, it has a very good battle record only losing in the Donamite and against Brycen´s Cryogonal after taking down Vanillish, is not a sin to be unevolved, and is the same League where someone entered with a Darumakka, another guy with a Riolu that gave him two rounds and a guy with an Eevee is in the Quarter finals. Is not a sin to be unevolved.

    But back on topic: Snivy needs more battles/victories than Leavanny, Oshawott and Palpitoad are pretty much on the same place

    I would hardly call the win vs a darumakka a proper battle but at least it got one. But hey BW is all about cute and fluff over substance anyways especially with Scraggys wins in the donamite.

    And I would say they could use battles in episodes like the crossdressing ep.Maybe come across another overly girly trainer for Snivy to take down a notch or some traveling clowns that happen to use water pokemon for Oshawott to battle in. Just that vs somewhat high caliber opponents like Cheren pokemon like leavanny and palpitoad makes more sense though I am still lamenting the loss of his BW1 team.

    Everyone's arguing about who should fight, and I'm sitting here think it's ironic how they start in Nuvema Town and 2 EPISODES LATER the gang ends up across the ocean to Aspertia City!

    I hardly found Oshawott, Tepig/Pignite and Scraggy "cute and fluff".

    I pick Oshawott as my starter but I don´t think it´s cute, is kinda cool, but not cute, Tepig/Pignite aren´t cute either and I don´t know where I read that it was the less appealing Unova starter, and Scraggy is just plain ugly, Snivy barely appears and the rest of Ash´s team are already evolved, not even Emolga appears that much.

    IF Ash gets to battle Cheren, and if he uses Herdier, any of the team would be fine battling it, Stoutland would be a different story.

    Why are you implying that "Pikachu status" is a bad thing?

    Anyway, do we have any new information about this episode? 'Cause right now it's not sounding so great. Just another episode about an in-game character who should have appeared a long time ago. It's like all the good characters from the BW era are being shoved into this arc. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    We will probably never reach an agreement so I'll just say this at least give palpitoad his due. I don't even care about anyone else at this point, whatever happened to everyone else he really didn't need a tie especially since he had not had an actual win since Elesa?

    That is all.

    OT: I wonder if Alder will show up as a Cameo since he played a big role for Cheren in the games.

    At least Palpitoad got a new move, a very cool new move :3, I think he will evolve, even if he has a solid moveset right now, he only needs screentime

    Hahaha Actually the only ones who got crappy League treatment was Scraggy, Unfezant & Boldore. Boldore may have gotten in a Rock Smash but that was it. Scraggy got a really short battle where it didn't even use Focus Blast. Did Unfezant even damage Riolu? Oshawott hit Hydreigon with a Razor Shell, Hydro Pump, & Tackle, doing a really good amount of damage to it. And Snivy got Riolu to the point of evolving.

    Scraggy at least could snatch a victory from Pikachu, Pignite and Krookodile =S

    Who is Nonomi? Is that the CotD from the Juniper Lab episode?

    So, Nonomi gets Tepig in the first episode, then two episodes later she has her first Gym battle? Ash could learn a thing or two from this speedster!

    Good for now:

    -Pikachu
    -Pignite
    -Krookodile
    -Leavanny

    In the middle:

    -Scraggy
    -Boldore
    -Unfezant

    In need of battles:

    -Palpitoad
    -Snivy
    -Oshawott

    Of course this is opinion based, but I think a lot of people would agree that Oshawott could use a win..
    I actually agree with you, even if Boldore could easily go into the "Need to battle" section.

    I don't believe it's confirmed. I think it's speculation at the moment. I hope she doesn't... We already witnessed Kotetsu's gym battle, and Ash has many members that could use a good battle...

    I guess it makes sense when you think of it like that, but I still think that Ash has many, many Pokemon that need a good battle.

    Scraggy!? Scraggamuffins just got a league win, even if it was only a Darumaka. Oshawott and Snivy could use wins...

    Beating a Darumaka is nothing to be proud of.

    It's still better than what Oshawott, Snivy, Unfezant, Boldore, Leavanny got....which was nothing.

    As for me, I still really haven't formed an opinion on this episode, I mean YAY at least Cheren (still dislike him) is now a gym leader and stuff, but I can't seem to really care.

    Maybe it's because Iris was being considered for gym leadership in Opelucid City, and then we have to have this episode. But I guess if this helps Iris become a gym leader, then I guess it will be worth it.

    So I'm assuming Iris, is the one who will get focus in this episode if anyone because Cheren is a NEW gym leader, with Iris potentially becoming a gym leader.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
