    August 26th: PM2019 122 - The Semifinals I: Sweep

    To be fair, she narrowly beat someone her entire team had a type advantage over with screens up on top of it. If she were in a similar situation against Steven, just based on type alone, it would be hard to imagine it being so even. So in terms of actual skill and power, Lance isn't necessarily...

    Ash Heads Into Battle! VS Steven!! (1207)

    She seemed pretty shocked by Ash using a Z-Move for some reason despite having watched his battle with Volkner. Z-Moves in general are hard to predict because the Kahunas and Guardian Deities are in charge of their use, and there's no special unique trinket for them to easily hide - it's a...

    Ash Heads Into Battle! VS Steven!! (1207)

    For anyone wondering, the movesets for Steven's team were: Aggron: Heavy Slam, Rock Wrecker, Smart Strike Cradily: Power Whip, Ingrain, Meteor Beam, Rock Blast Metagross: Agility, Psychic, Meteor Mash, Flash Cannon (Same as in XYZ, but with Agility instead of Protect - which seems useless since...

    Champions' Pride! Lance VS Diantha!! (1205)

    This was a good battle and while I would have preferred Diantha won, it manages to show her competence with strategy while also reinforce that Lance's Pokemon are stronger. She already had the type advantage in 2/3 of the matchups (3/3 after Trick-Or-Treat) and yet still had to rely on Dual...

    August 20th: PM2019 077 - A Super-Electromagnetic Hyper Class Battle!

    If it weren't unclear on whether or not Motor Drive can absorb it that would be a bit easier to figure out. If it's intended to be how Ash wins either he uses it on Luxray since Electivire would be immune, or he uses it on Electivire and it overrides Motor Drive. If it's meant to fail, then...

    August 20th: PM2019 077 - A Super-Electromagnetic Hyper Class Battle!

    Well, to be fair Flint and Volkner are both friends and rivals, and Volkner's canonically strong enough to be a reasonable challenger for the Elite Four even in the games, so if they were to have a Gym Leader at 27 their only real choices were Volkner and Raihan, and Raihan already made it 8th...

    Dragon Battle! Ash VS Iris!! (1154)

    Didn't intend to double post but I can't seem to edit this quote in. Dephender'll probably get to it but: "Dragonite, try to relax. You love Satoshi, don't you? So do your best. You're truly kind. My Haxorus, even back when it was a little Axew was very kind. But as we learned all sorts...

    Dragon Battle! Ash VS Iris!! (1154)

    "We'll also get into the Hyper Class soon, so wait for us", is what she said. Satoshi agreed, thrn she wishes him good luck, saying "Best Wishes" which is a callback to the series where they met.

    Dragon Battle! Ash VS Iris!! (1154)

    "Saikyo" as "greatest" is often used analogously to "strongest" in the series, though, from what I recall. Either way I was referring to that same line so I suppose there was an embedded inference of strength on my part, but yes, his statement really helps clear up ambiguity. We don't...

    Dragon Battle! Ash VS Iris!! (1154)

    Shaga says she's the Unova region's strongest trainer outright, and she calls herself the Champion without a "Dragon" prefix so it seems she's just the Champion. He doesn't say anything about Claire or Goodra, he just talks about Iris growing closer to her Dragon-type Pokemon and how that...

    Dragon Battle! Ash VS Iris!! (1154)

    Seeing Volkner in Hyper Class is great since up until now, of all Gym Leaders he was always the one implied to be at least Elite Four level in both the games and anime. Iris says her goal wasn't Unova Champion, but instead to be a Dragon Master, so she's aiming for it. That sort of seems to...

    Jul 15: Movie 20 - Pocket Monsters the Movie: I Choose You! (Dec 11: Movie 21 reveal)

    So I'm certain others have probably pointed this out already, but... Bondy's hat - isn't that an almost exact reproduction of Red's original has from the R/B/Y design? The only difference seems to be that the leaf in the circle is red instead of the original green. That's too deliberate a...

    "Pocket Monsters Sun & Moon", starting November 17th

    Presumably it'll stay as Battle Bond. Either way, given that Ash-Greninja is known from the anime (where it originated) to be on the level of Megas, and is shown battling Megas in the trailer, it'll probably get a +100 base stat total boost like the other Megas. But since it doesn't require an...

    New Pokemon Discussion Thread

    Judging by the clubbed tail and the shape of the plates along the edges of the armor on its back, it looks to be a small Anklyosaurus. Two Pokemon that've drawn inspiration from them before are Torterra, which basically has the body form of an anklyosaurus mixed with the concept of the "World...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    So... this trailer was full of amazing, unexpected stuff. But I'm also annoyed I watched it because they're giving out SO much of S/M's plot and such - if I had gone in cold (or "colder"), I would've been really blown back by all the new things. Will probably avoid the remaining trailers until...

    Enjoyable/Favorite Filler Episodes of XY and XYZ?

    I might update this post with more later, but I really liked the little character arc they wrote for Litleo in the Pyroar episode. Even Pyroar and his relationship to his son was pretty cool - and that scene where he's trapped in the mech's tail and sees Litleo's face as the tail sends him...

    Is Geninja still a top tier Ash Pokemon without it's evolution?

    Just figured I'd comment on the second part of your post. Lots of good logic here, though! Quite comprehensive. Regarding Pikachu's relative performance against the Brains and E4, it's not quite a fair measure of the Brains' caibre, particularly Brandon's. Pikachu KO'd a Regice that Brandon...

    Sep 8th: XY&Z041 - Attack on Lumiose Gym! The Citroid Forever!!

    She's still far more involved than she was in the games. Though given that Steven is a more compelling character and Champion, I'm glad he's showing up too. Would be nice to see him take down Malva or have his power at least implicitly compared to Diantha (though obviously his Metagross would...

    Your favorite Gen 6 Pokemon

    Really hard not to love Greninja at this Point. Chesnaught, Greninja, Aegislash, Zygarde, Yveltal, Xerneas, Goodra, Hawlucha, Noivern, and Braixen.

    Will Alain be disqualified?

    Well, Greninja did block the first Leaf Storm. And we've seen him pull that maneuver a few times now to seemingly reduce damage. He blocked Abomasnow's Wood Hammer and Mega Charizard X's Dragon Claw in much the same way. I also don't necessarily agree with the Blast Burn KO (though we can't...
