    I wonder why Cilan didn't pick Crustle instead, I think it would've done better than Pansage at this kind of battle.

    I hope Pignite will continue to have that Focus Band on his head whenever Ash calls him out of his Pokéball, it looks both cute and good on him.

    Nope, Oshawott was stripped of his Scalchop King title because his Scalchop broke. Freddy O'Martin stated these are the rules of the tournament.

    Fact 1: Cameron/Kotetsu is not disliked by everybody, stop saying he is, there are people in the fandom who do like him. I am one of those people.

    Fact 2: The majority of people who like unpopular characters are always the most nicest and sensible and, therefore, the best people of the fandom.

    LMFAOing when dragonite lost due to the technicality. I am glad that pansage lost though since Hariyama looked made for sumo wrestling, pignite winning vs go lurk might have been BS to some people, but its far better than the tourney wins of mijumaru, pikachu, snivy, and scraggy.

    The episode was fine.
    Team Rock went back to sucking, that's great. -_-
    Gogoat and Heliopitle were cool to see.
    Alexa looked well pretty... Lets leave it at that.
    Pignite is OP by the power of plot, that Slaking gag had me going. (They really do need a new ability btw.)

    You misunderstood me.

    Because Mijuka chose the Dewott over Oshawott, Oshawott's Scalchop broke for the sole purpose of it not staying because it would've been forced to stay. Thus the Scalchop broke and Oshawott was disqualified.
    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.

    Thank you for some appreciation for this win. Pignite deserved that win more than anyone else so I'm glad Ash won. Hopefully the winning cycle continues for him in Kelos.

    As far as Alexa goes, it's refreshing to have a cool codts again on the show. I was getting bored with just watching Ash and his lackies do little to nothing. So I hope she stays for a while.

    p.s.- I wonder why Excadrill never got a thought in this. It would have been a good choice as well. not only that but we haven't seen the thing do anything in a while.

    My ideal battle ever!

    So, what move(s) did Helioptile use in this episode? Parabolic Charge? ThunderShock? Something?

    Well, nuts was hoping they'd show off more Pokemon from the next series, from what we saw though they seem pretty cool. Glad Ash won another tournament, LOL at the writers trying to make for Ash's treatment in the early half of the series, hopefully they continue on with that the next series, they don't have to have win every battle or tournament, few wins would do though.
    Over all, an ok episode. Next episode kind of looks meh.

    It looked like a wide-range move so I think it was Discharge.

    Nice episode and introduction for 6 gen Pokémon! Alexa, Gogoat & Helioptile were cool and I'm happy Ash won something even if it's a mini-tournament lol :3 I'll always root for him 10/10

    Well, the images from this episode looke interesting. Nice to see the new pokemon. Wonder if Ash will catch a Gogoat on his journey...
    It was interesting that Iris and Dragonite were disqualified. Ever since she caught it she's relied on Dragonite to KO anything thrown her way.
    As for Cilan and Pansage... well... All I will say on the matter is that I had been hoping for an episode in which all three brothers got together to evolve their monkeys at the same time. I think it's long past time for that to happen, and probably won't now.
    Oshawott was, well, Oshawott. God, why can't I like that guy? I want to but I just can't.
    I'm glad Ash went for Pignite. Here's to hoping that the Focus Band gets to stick around. It's nice to see Ash's pokemon holding items.

    Ash won another tournament! I guess the writers are making up for his losing streak in BW. I didn't expect him to win since he has a Focus Band already, but It's great that he got another one.

    I'm glad he did, nice to see that the writers actually cares about continuity.
    Alexa's first anime appearance was good too, Helioptile and Gogoat were cool.

    This episode was more about the Sumo Wrestling tourney than Alexa, but I'm glad Pignite got a Hold Item that's probably not going to appear ever again because no Pokémon is seen using those at all.

    Chaobu focus + Minimal amount of Rocket nonsense + Kairyu + Elikiteru/Gogoat/Pansy + Purple-haired Jerk + nice visuals = fun episode.

    Nice to see Chaobu get some focus and win the whole tournament, that was out of the left field. Plus he was really cute and awesome with his newly won Focus Band, he and Waruvial are seriously the best battlers of Satoshi's team. Mijumaru was pretty cute here to, with how much he was rooting for Chaobu to win. The hype throughout the episode about the Sumo Tournament and every one making a big deal of it and the fruit giving was entertaining. The final battle and the tactic to win were cool as well. Glad he won, he deserved some glory.

    Pansy looked kinda bland to me, but she's actually pretty cute in her exposition on her job. With her getting wild Pokemon on camera and editing the videos and pictures for magazines and what not. I also like how her Gogoat and Elikiteru were assistants for her, when she needed her camera charged and her Gogoat's annoyance with her as well. Elikiteru and Gogoat both had some nice personality that made them standout well, I'm kinda glad they didn't steal the show here. Even though I realize they're here to advertise X and Y. Pansy and her interest in Satoshi-tachi and her filming were pretty cute, even her paying heavy attention to Satoshi and Chaobu in the tournament. For some reason I think Luke will be mentioned or appear again in the future.

    Kairyu losing on a technicality was amusing to say the least, as was Iris checking out all the massive Pokemon and being "Herp derp, better go with da big Dragon-type!" I was hoping for Doryuzu this time since Kibago got the Marine Cup in the detective episode but Kairyu will do I guess. Kairyu had the win but lost, because his massive tail went out of the arena. I felt bad for Dento, his Yanappu didn't have a chance and got swatted easily. Yukiya worked well for a one-episode antagonistic factor and it was just nice to see Golugh get some focus, the species hasn't done much outside of Larry's.

    But yeah, a fun episode. Hopefully Gogoat battles in the future, found it more interesting than Elikiteru and its facial expressions were great.

    I kind of feel Dento was like one of those people who just go:

    "LOL let's see how my level one chikorita does in the PWT against Red's Charizard?"

    ...

    "Well. That went smoothly..."

    I am glad you confirmed that for me. Yes, he did. He didn't say Johto but he said something along the lines of "I participated in a Sumo tournament."

    I agree, this was a very fun episode. I enjoyed this episode thoroughly and loved both Pansy's and Helioptile's quirks. Gogoat's personality fits its size. I was afraid that this episode was going to be filled with advertised for new Pokemon, but the balance was AMAZING, to say the least. The new Pokemon and Pansy didn't hog the screen time, and I am liking Pansy's video shoots. Right now she doesn't have much to go on as she really didn't face some character portraying moments, but she will definitely have her moments in the coming episodes. I will be VERY happy, if the future episodes be like this with a good balance of XY Pokemon and focus on Satoshi.

    Is it just me, or did Ash's flair of anger has returned back after a long time? I mean in season 2, he had been too happy go with Cameron and Stephan and other league rivals except Trip. Not to mention, in the episode N saga he was mostly concerned for N and couldn't show his anger side much. I miss Ash's fit of rages.

    The scene where Iris and Dento stop him from fighting was interesting and worth analyzing. Iris scolds Ash and tells him to back down iirc, while Dento calmly tells him to step down. Even Pansy does the same.

    And Pignite, oh god, yes! This was a freaking amazing episode for Pignite. The guy was shown to be a lot stronger than what his size shows in episode where he fights Dawn's Mamoswine, and we all know how powerful Dawn's Mamoswine. This fact has been replicated in this tournament. Ash showed some quick thinking and good dodging to finally win the match.

    Altogether, the small reference to a previous Sumo tournament, has cheered me up a bit for some reason.

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THIS.

        Spoiler:- 1:


    RINGUMA EMBRACING FIGHTING TSUNBEAR. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. I HAVE NO REGRETS.

    Seriously, I always wondered WHEN I would see this two Pokemon together ever since BW came out and my dream became a reality today.

    And Pepsi_Plunge: Dude, in this episode Cilan says "It's not a Pokemon belonging to Kanto or Isshu." Maybe we can confirm that Ash's Pokedex only contains info of Isshu and data from his old Pokedex! :3

    Oh, that brief moment when Pansage weeps in Dento's arms and he consoles it. The animators LOVE Dento, I just keep seeing more and more subtle things :3


    And @ Rohanator: DUDE, you forgot about something MORE important. GROTLE and TORTERRA's beautiful art by the water in Pansy's pics!!! Our favorite Pokemon reappeared!
