Also why didn't Cilan use Stunfisk in this episode? He saw a girl was researching it on the computer and then to get a bunch of Water/Flying types in a pool, he chooses a Grass type to go and swim instead of his Ground/Electric type that is native to water shock them... I'm certain Cheren would have forgiven him is he used a move on them to bring them back.
Alolan Krabby & Kingler
(Krabby) Strong currents carried it from Kanto to the Alolan shore and a territorial fight with Crabrawler was born. Unable to beat them due to Krabby’s small size, they retreated into the sand and became nocturnal creatures. Eventually, they developed Ghost-type abilities which made them immune to Fighting-type moves.
(Kingler) Due to their newfound Ghost-typing, Krabby lose their arms in the process of evolution. New spiritual power allows them to make their claws hover around them using some kind of ghostly tether. It is typically found in beaches with very little to no humans. It has a good relationship with Palossand to help each other protect their shared territory.
I think it was OHKO. The writers really need to devote more time to battles because this battle was so rushed.
And everyone thought Cilan will show his Stunfisk. People even thought he was talking to that kid. Ha!
In snow, the pure white coat covering its body obscures it from predators.
Ooh, I really like this episode! I mostly enjoyed all of it, actually only if Oshawott had won being the last part.
I like the Aspertia gym, pretty similar to the games with the trainer's school in front but too bad we didn't get to see any of Aspertia City. :/
Cheren's introduction was nice, he seems to be a pretty caring person towards both the children and Pokemon. :O
Lol, its funny how Cilan talked a lot this episode about being a gym leader I'd guess. Its nice they had a look around the trainer's school but Axew got lost, its like he leads Pikachu to trouble as he did last episode and now here. Also, both Pikachu and Axew got in trouble.
Haha, I like the search for the missing Pokemon! Ash, Iris and Cilan, all three of them were funny. Wow, its great to see Sunflora and Shinx again.
So they skip through the whole thing and went right into the gym battle, by that I mean the scenes of them walking to the battle field. XD Hmm... Well yeah, the gym battle was good its nice to see Ash's Oshawott using his a scalchop to his advantage against Cheren's Herdier but again, too bad he lost. Still a fun and funny gym battle though. :P
So right after the gym battle Ash and co. Say their good byes! So yeah, overall pretty good episode! In my opinion of course.

I cant remember a Pokemon belonging to Ash in the shows history that loses quality both on-screen AND off-screen!

So Oshawott's lack of focus did lead to his own downfall well that sucked for Ash. It's good that Cheren won but Ash really benefit from losing especially after coming off from another league loss.

Even Totodile is better at this point, with canon wins over a Kingdra, Charizard and a league win vs. Harrison's Sneasel. And don't tell me they don't count, because if you can't take those seriously, there's no way in heck that you could be able to take Oshawott's victories seriously as well, aside from Clay's Krokorok. Vs. Pansage required magical ricochet Water Gun to retreive the scalchop, and vs. Watchog was a tie based on the luck of Aqua Jet hitting it on accident. Aside from these three, it has lost every battle it was in, CANON. Hence, even Totodile is better, and in fact the only one that may have a less impressive resumé would be Muk, who only has a single win to it's name whatsoever...
Tell me, what do you think the sales of Johto starters plushes look like nowadays, compared to back in the day?
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
"If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."
Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:
The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..
Lol Oshawott is a failed mashup of Piplup and Burgundy. Honestly, Oshawott losing is not surprising to me at all, totally called it.
Even Piplup sells better merchandise, Ash should've gotten a Piplup or Dawn should've came to Unova so Osha could actually evolve -_-

You'd think Ash would've have trained Oshawott not to cower behind his scallop after all this time. Oh well.
Herdier ... wut?
Oshawott is weak? Lol. He only lost because he cares for his Scalchop and it was a move he was weak to.
So, not winning a battle in a long time even though he's hardly has one in a long time = Oshawott being the weakest Pokemon? Uh...no. And, I'm not being bias, because I would say the same for Snivy, even though I don't really care for her lately, or any of Ash's Pokemon.
Also, there could be some good reasons to him losing, like making Cheren look good, a new Gym Leader.
Ya'll seriously need to calm to stop being so melodramatic.
On a lighter note.

My Pokemon in AS (so far).
3DS FC: 1891 1376 6990. Add me. Wii U Nintendo Network ID: Playerking.
What a crap, seriously.
First, Shinx was completely random, just to electrify Cheren, the professor, in front of some students.
Second, no one of our speculations has been showed off : Stunfisk hasn't appear, Shinx and Ducklett were not important...
Finally, Oshawott is loosing to Cheren. Seriously, that was the worst battle ever. Oshawott was deserving this battle, than he lost. Instead of giving a good fight, it was an absolute joke. How can writers can be that awful ? He lost bravely to a Hydreigon, but against a simple Herdier, come on. Oshawott, you're doomed for life.
I was disgusted about this episode, believe me or not.
❝I don't want to forget.❞
My faith in the writers has been restored somewhat. They didn't disgrace cheren
rose-colored glasses > if someone thinks about or looks at something with rose-colored glasses, they think it is more pleasant than it really is
Basically, one looks through rose-colored glasses when he/she observes something superficially and refuses to look deeper into a matter or to acknowledge some details.
I'm glad that Cheren appeared in the anime, but I expected a bit more to be honest. It seemed more that he was put there just for fanservice, kinda like with Marlon.
The battle was terribly rushed and... Oshawott lost? Can't say I didn't expect that, but I would have preferred a tie. At least by tying no one would have appeared better than the other: Cheren could have shown to be capable and Oshawott could have demonstrated to not be a pathetic joke.
A part of those things, I think that the episode was rather good. I liked the whole school plot and I liked Cheren.
Its not everyday that Ash meets the Pokemon video game character Cheren. I'm sorry that Oshawott lost to Cheren's Herdier. Now what Ash planning to do? He already got eight Gym Unova Badges.
I am here to help others to solve their problem,and I'm also the big fan of Kissshipping. But right now, I'm an Amourshipper.

what the **** oshawoot and ash? ****ing train your pokemon better jesus christ that was embrassing to watch
Woah, at first i thought Cheren's behavior would be completely different than what i saw after watching the episode. He acted so calm. To think it's the same Cheren that was your rival in B/W 1 (Oh why THIS Cheren didn't appear, if BW1 Bianca did >.<)
Also, any idea if his Seiyuu is the same that in the BW 2 Anime Trailer?
