    Probably has to do with the fact that the move didn't outright slaughter Pikachu. Not even a scratch was left.

    probably because Pikachu actually dodged most of those blows, if more than 1 had made contact Pikachu probably would've lost, but it didn't take the full impact of the move.

    Pretty much as Zard said. Pikachu did not take the complete blow, it was pretty obvious, not sure how you guys missed it.

    Pikachu mostly avoiding a Z-move does not equal Hala looking like a beginner, I don't even comprehend what sort of logic would lead you to make that statement.

    There was absolutely no tension to this match. Let's be honest. The writers were too nice to Ash this time.

    Maybe it was more on the easy side for Ash than it should have beem, but I wouldn't agree that there was no tension at all. Both Rowlet and Pikachu had trouble landing hits and kept on getting beat up on until Ash managed to find a strategy to turn things around. Yes, it was technically a sweep (though one could argue that Rowlet was too exhausted to battle any further, and therefore rendered unable to battle by Crabrawler), but it wasn't an easy sweep.

Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.

    Let's be honest. Opinion =/= fact. You're old enough to know that.

    Probably wrong choice of words there, but my point still remains that a Belly Drum All Out Pummeling was so easily dodged by Pikachu, and the fact Ash was perfectly able to execute Breakneck Blitz, a new type of technique for him so easily just made the battle seem anti climatic.

    I think we can all at least agree that there at least should have been an episode dedicated to Ash mastering Breakneck Blitz in between the Trial and Grand Trial episodes.

    So do you mean that the reason my comparison fails is because I should have compared the episode numbers of Gym 2 from previous sagas instead of Gym 1?

    Because based on your first sentence "Grand Trials are Gyms" that's basically what I said so I don't see how that's contradicting me

    Neither Ash nor Pikachu has been reset this saga, which is a good thing

    I wasn't expecting Ash to win this one. I thought that all out pummelling was going to be the end for him.

    Overall, I thought the battle was good. Rowlet took some time to work out Crabrawler but in the end used it's speed to take it out and it did make me laugh that it fell asleep afterwards. I just hope that trait doesn't linger as I think that could begin to tarnish certain battles. Then the build to the climax was excellent and as I said earlier was fully expecting Ash to lose but he turned it around with a quick attack dodge and a breakneck blitz. However, I do agree that it was strange that Ash all of a sudden mastered breakneck blitz.

    Good episode, onto the next one!
    Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

    I'm sure they'd happily share food with the Rattata and Raticate. What they won't do is let them eat basically whole crops and cause havoc while doing so.

    Hala even lampshades this when he states he could feel how experienced Ash was during the battle with Pikachu. I'd wager if he had known this ahead of time he might have brought stronger members of his team (we know form the games that the kahunas usually don't use their stronger team members during grand trials).

    Regardless that Breakneck Blitz was a thing of beauty.

    I still think Hariyama is probably his strongest in the anime, seeing as Ash used Pikachu to defeat it (who hasn't been reset since Gen 5 anyway).
