    October 20th: SM144 - The Greatest Z in Alola! Kapu-Kokeko VS Pikachu!!

    I believe Super Fang has always just been shown as a damaging move rather than the whole “halving HP” thing so I’m assuming Nature’s Madness/Guardian of Alola would probably function similarly.

    October 20th: SM144 - The Greatest Z in Alola! Kapu-Kokeko VS Pikachu!!

    I doubt this will be a one-sided battle by any means. Pikachu already managed to rattle Tapu Koko a bit back in their last battle, which was clear back after the first Grand Trial. Plus it’s not like Pikachu doesn’t have experience with bringing down legendaries. Win, lose, or draw, I certainly...

    October 13th: SM143 - Conclusion! Gaogaen VS Nyaheat!!

    Judging by the preview I think it looks like some possible Fire Fang/Revenge combo? Looks like Fire Fang animation to me but there’s also a paw swipe so idk. I don’t see why this would be a waste of time. Like ... it’s still a battle, and a pretty good one. It doesn’t have to have a “point.”...

    October 13th: SM143 - Conclusion! Gaogaen VS Nyaheat!!

    Presumably it’s X-Scissor, given what we know from last episode. Admittedly I am a bit stumped by Naganadel’s moveset that we’ve seen so far but I’m sure it’ll have at least one more new move in place of Fury Attack. Dragon Pulse would seem reasonable but who knows, maybe it’ll come packing...

    October 20th: SM144 - The Greatest Z in Alola! Kapu-Kokeko VS Pikachu!!

    Good lord you’re cynical. Everyone else is talking about WHY they think it could be good, you’re the one just making blanket statements without adding anything constructive. As for the Z-Moves showing up here, Guardian of Alola would be cool but tbh I expect this to be a purely electrical...

    October 20th: SM144 - The Greatest Z in Alola! Kapu-Kokeko VS Pikachu!!

    Look I know we all have certain issues with the writers but I hardly see how something that bookends the whole saga can be seen as a bad thing. All of SM started back with Pikachu vs Tapu Koko and now it all comes back to it in the end. At the very least it is narratively consistent. If the...

    October 13th: SM143 - Conclusion! Gaogaen VS Nyaheat!!

    I wouldn’t say that’s a fair reason to rule it out. 1) Correct me if I’m wrong but Torracat doesn’t like HATE Incineroar as a species, right? It’s just got it’s rivalry with Kukui’s, not like there’s any real hard feelings involved. And 2) there have been fights between Pokemon of the same...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Well yeah that’s certainly fair, I don’t think anyone’s expecting the companion group to be able to measure up to Guzma or Gladion. Probably not Hau or Ilima either but idk, at least those two have been absent enough to potentially justify them being weaker than might be assumed. But still...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Eh, this is an anime where just about anyone can get a random competence boost at any time whether it’s deserved or not. Yeah most of the main cast here hasn’t had much of a battle outing but I’m still expecting at least decent showings from the gang here. Especially Kiawe, idk where the idea...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Say what you will, I'm still expecting this to be a better league than Unova.

    I really don't see how Guzma wouldn't be a top contender given that his Golisopod pushed PIKACHU into a corner, including shrugging off a Z-Move like it was nothing. As far as I can tell, the only trainer here that poses as much of a potential threat as Guzma is Gladion.

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Alrighty, so it's getting close to time! Let's take a quick crack at what I expect/hope to see from this League (some of this logical prediction, some of it more hopeful): - the remaining type Z-Moves get shown off by Acerola, Mina, Plumeria, and Faba; would be great to see Acerola using...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Oh I wasn’t arguing that this would be higher quality (well, probably better than Unova), just looking at it on paper was kinda funny to see the numbers compare. At any rate I’m actually looking forward to this, even if this league isn’t as grandiose as past ones, at least SM battles tend to...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    Wow okay just realized something kinda hilarious. If we actually DO see every match Ash has this time, and if he does make it to the end to fight Masked Royal, then that comes out to six battles - the royale, four tournament rounds, and the final exhibition match. So if we do actually get to...

    Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

    This is a really weird feeling thinking about how this will play out. Like honestly, the more I've watched it the more I really enjoy the SM saga, and I really love most of the characters, but a League just does not seem suited for it. I'm not really disappointed by how this will likely go...
