    Which was the best rival vs. rival league battle? (PaulBarry, CamBianca, SawyerTierno, GladionKiawe)

    After watching the latest dub episode last weekend, which featured Gladion vs. Kiawe, I was thinking about the recent trend of the writers always sacrificing one rival to make another rival seem more powerful. With the exception of Cameron, whom Ash lost to, all the other 3 Ash ended up beating...

    Does Ash having NO Water Pokémon and multiple empty slots hint an Ash-Greninja return for the league

    Btw, I'm not a fanboy, it's just a genuine thought that just came to my mind. It's soo late in the generation for Ash to still have caught so few Pokémon! I can't fathom why! Every league except Indigo has had Ash in at least one battle where he needed a team of six.. he's going to end up...

    Rank the leagues

    @GarchompChain's post stating that the Kalos League was a Unova-level League caught my attention in @Power Up's Kalos League Final thread, and rather than expanding on it there and going off topic, it gave me the idea to just make a straight up rank the leagues thread. You can include Orange if...

    How much of BW's original plan was scrapped because TR/TP scrapped?

    And going hand in hand with that, how much of what we ended up getting post-episode 22 in BW was originally planned, and how much of it was added newly because they had to make a bunch of changes to the overall BW arc? Do you think a lot of the "problems" in BW were caused by the missing of...

    Why did the flavor text from Black Tower opponents make it seem so mysterious?

    First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong place. This is the first time I am posting outside the anime section, But I did read the rules here and think it would be fine to start a new thread about my question. Anyway, before I get into my main question which might appear critical, I want...

    One year later... WHAT was the point of the FURFROU trainer?

    It's June 16 where I live (I know it's June 17 already in many places) and last year on June 16, XY&Z31 aired, and with it came the preview of XY&Z32 which was our first look at the FURFROU trainer. Before that, we knew from the summary that "suddenly a trainer challenges Ash" or something, but...

    Will we ever get multiple title cards per generation again?

    From Generations II through IV, the title screen changed throughout the generation. This article does a good job of showing them, even though it has not yet been updated for SM: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:HoennMaster/List_of_anime_title_cards In Generation II, we had two...

    Which rival vs. rival league battle was the best?

    Paul vs. Barry Cameron vs. Bianca Sawyer vs. Tierno Both in terms of storyline (hyping up the winner for his battle with Ash) and also just in terms of a good battle (entertainment value)

    Were we meant to assume the evil Malamar were connected to Team Flare?

    After all, their goals were similar: to modify the whole world to suit their own needs. Also, Xerosic had a Malamar. And lastly, as far as the fact that they never appeared again, that could be explained away by saying they went so far in the future we haven't gotten to it yet. --- Or...

    What was the point of giving Tierno Hitmontop and Politoed?

    They literally did nothing. Do you think there were originally plans for Ash and Tierno to have a 6-on-6 at the league that were then scrapped?

    Will Ash ever get Mega Evolution?

    I am not going to say yes or no either way -- I want to hear y'all's thoughts on that. What I will offer is a suggestion on how it could happen if it does: It could happen between the eighth gym and the League (in a future generation that has gyms again) that there's a Korrina-like arc for...

    Why did Greninja never learn Night Slash?

    Especially when -It has it in the Gen VII games. -The animation (in Gen VI anime) for Cut and Night Slash is basically identical except the color. This is the most mind-boggling thing to me that didn't happen in XY&Z because it just seemed so obvious it would happen...and then it didn't.

    Why was Goodra "Gliscor'd" if Ash never filled up all 6 slots?

    On a related note, why did Ash never get a Grass type in Kalos? I have to admit that as someone who watches spoiler-free, the first time I watched the Phantump filler near the very end of XY&Z, I thought that Ash was going to catch it. Especially since they taught that Phantump how cool it...
