    Default A Hurdle For Squirtle (421)

    A Hurdle For Squirtle

    It's time for the Saffron City Pokémon Contest. May is entering with her Squirtle & Combusken, Harley is entering with Cacturne & Ariados and Jessie is entering with Cacnea. The battles will be tough but will May be able to beat Harley and earn her first Kanto Ribbon?

    Looks very good and could go in any direction. Can't wait to hear more.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    Read the prologue for the Kanto arc HERE

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    Wait, so Harley and May use 2 pokemon, and Jessie only uses 1? Or does she use one of her own pokemon or something?

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to this, it looks like it could be quite good! Especially with Ariados and Squirtle involved!

    you use two pokemon. May uses Combusken and Squirtle. Harley uses Ariados and Cacturne. Jessie we don't know her second pokemon but, we know she uses Canea we don't know the 2nd one though.

    I think battle I mean what could wobbufet do appeal wise. Although Cacnea in the pics looked worried at some sort of attack maybe it had stage fright but, I doubt it.

    Wobbuffet being used for appeal would allow for some comedy, it'd probably just come out and say its name (like it does at the end of the motto), leading Jessie to frustration.

    No...There's ONE season after Advanced Battle, not 9...Unless you meant that, but just don't know how to type correctly. ¬¬

    Anyhow, this ep seems interesting. Can't wait to see it on Saturday evening...>_>

    Not really. They asked if there were a 9th season AFTER the most recent season in America. That means it was phrased incorrectly. ¬¬

    On topic: I hope Jessie keeps her haircut. XD

    Please forgive the number of caps but I really want people to take note of what I say here.

    1. Has anyone stopped to think that Harley's Ariados was as much a factor in the result as May's Squirtle? I mean did the thing ever do anything except spray webs? It may have been skilled with its webs but it was NOT very powerful. Just look at Annie and Oakley's Ariados (well it belonged to one of them) in movie 5. Now THAT is a Ariados that can battle.

    In other words this is NOT a repeat of Super Skitty. Super Skitty managed to beat a Dusclops that seemed pretty much invincible before that. This Ariados on the other hand NEVER showed itself to be that strong. Does that change the fact it was a boring and cheap battle that ended far too quickly? No. But it does mean Squirtle is not Super Skitty, for which I breathe a sigh of relief. ^_^

    And don't tell me that because it was evolved ti had to have a good amount of skill. The anime has shown again and again that evolving is not always linked to strength. I mean look at that Charizard in a Hoso special that managed to get to its third form without knowing how to breathe fire or fly. It's evolving (and many others) was from life experience and time, not due to battle training. Of course ti got stronger but not the way a well-trained Pokemon does when it evolves.

    That being said, I found the episode average in that the battles were boring. It had good parts but with the very limited moves pulled off by Squirtle and Ariados it just was not that interesting...

    But next week's episode looks great!!! ^_^

    P/S As for it beating a Crobat, I tend to think of it as just a random Pokemon thrown in with no thought as to how it could lose. Besides that, Brock's Crobat wasn't all that strong (not that it really ever battled). Since they evolve more from happiness not battle experience, being a third form evolution doesn't mean as much. Plus it sure looked small...

    ...

    May's Squirtle is young. It's hardly been in any battles. It suddenly learns a powerful and rather advanced for it's level attack in Ice Beam without any special training or battling experience.

    Then it uses that attack against Ariadosu-chan to win the Contest. And how did it do that? May got the idea from Squirtle not being able to control the attack... how stupid and ironic is that?

    Total, utter BS, regardless of how people try to suger-coat it.

    Seen the pictures, and that is NOT what I expected to happen! Then again, it never is....

    Anyway, Ariados beats Wobbufet, Squirtle beats a Crobat I think, hard to tell from the pictures, and then Squirtle beats Ariados in the final, earning May her first ribbon. Woop-de-doo. Hopefully next time, Harley will use Banette instead of Cacturne.

    Why did they ever bother to make Harley a main rival if all they're going to do is have May beat him all the time? They're basically turning Harley into the one "May always beats."

    Like somebody said in the spec. thread though, if the writers made Harley win, then they'd have to make something good happen to May, to kind of 'cushion the fall', if you get what I mean.

    But, yeah, I would like Harley to win at least once, we know he can win contests, because he was in the Grand Festival, so why not win in a contest that includes May?

    Grr...I was seriously praying for Haruka to lose this one, as a lesson to never be so naive to take Harley's advice again, Besdies, a still-young Squirtle beating up a Crobat? Even with a new moveset, it doesn't seem very feasable. It's like Super Skitty all over again. Now we can call it Mutant Ninja Squirtle (Oh God...that was horrible) or something.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Toddler Mutant Ninja Squirtle, go!

    Even with ice beam, a Crobat is a 2nd-stage evolution. It'd be like defeating a Pidgeot.

    Harley lost again, this time a puny baby Squirtle. Now the writers are really making Harley into a weakling. All I can say is this: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Harley is the most ill fated coordinator of all time. DAMN YOU WRITERS, FIRSTY SHAFTING THE **** OUT OF SCEPTILE AND NOW THIS!!

    If May was in a real contest she'll lose (and I mean GBA contests, Skitty would be nervous or having black hearts instead of ubersweeping).

    At least Jessie's appeal with Cacnea was cool.
