    A Birdacious Battle! Brave Bird VS Sky Attack!!

    With Ash's Z-Move having not had any effect on Hau's Decidueye, Decidueye has come back with its Sinister Arrow Raid Z-Move, which Rowlet luckily managed to dodge. However, the battle continues on and, with Rowlet not having fully mastered Feather Dance, the battle gets even more tense. Will Rowlet be able to pull through and bring Ash to the semi finals? In addition to that, the Top 8 match between Sophocles and Kiawe begins...

    Biggest fake out my god, REALLY had me going WHAT but Rowlet managed to pull out Feather Dance or substitute I couldn’t really tell. Battle went on for too long for no reason though, needed more of Kiawe vs Sophocles in this ep

    This has to be one of, if not the, worst SM episodes yet. Just terrible.

    It's 100% Substitute. It still hasn't been identified yet, but we have a visual now of Rowlet creating the double.

    I'm glad I was able to predict how this ending would be written!

    Substitute to escape trapping would be pretty busted in the video games. Cover your eyes and plug those ears, GameFreak!

    Sky Attack actually being shown charging was nice, Sun and Moon is paying attention to the secondary aspects of moves like Zap Cannon having low accuracy, Outrage confusing the user and now Sky Attack needing to charge, good direction for the anime to head towards!

    What about this episode made this in your opinion the worst one in SM?

    Ash also got some vindication from OS.

    Squirtle was ruled unable to battle during the Indigo League because he was asleep. Bulbasaur was ruled unable to battle during the Orange League championship, because he was paralyzed.

    Hala got the call on the field right.

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    Despite liking long battles and this battle was relatively long for 1 on 1 , it wasn't that good. It didn't make sense at some times (like Decidueye fainting after several shots while Rowlet was standing still after same amount of shots) then Decidueye hitting Rowlet with legs/claws instead of attack.Kiawe vs Soph is a good start. Ok episode. It could've been better like if Rowlet evolved here.. or if it was shorter battle. Also, funny how Hau won for a second then Hala is like nope, he's asleep. Rowlet is like Gary Stu here lol. Plot armor is strong with this one, that's why this is OK episode.

    the heck is Meltan doing?

    So it was substitute, nice move, also way to nearly cost your trainer rowlet.

    being put to sleep by a move, and falling asleep yourself (from laziness or habit) are two different things, though I do agree that back then that was a stupid call since a status effect shouldn't cause an instant result.

    I would not want to be vikavolt come next week, i'm surprised Hala's refereeing that match, I figured they were going in reverse order so Olivia would've gotten this one, and Hala would've gotten Guzma vs Lana.

    It looks like the reason Rowlet fell asleep was because he was idling while the Substitute was using Brave Bird. The sub was destroyed by Sky Attack, revealing the hidden Rowlet.

    It was the right call but it was really cruel to Hau. Needlessly cruel.

    Sky Attack lands a super effective hit on Rowlet only for it to just sleep on it.

    Keep being yourself you little owl!

    Substitute is such a cool move, this is extremely innovative. I have no clue why they did give it one of Satoshi’s mon yet? It’s especially perfect for Mukuroh who often falls to his own sleeping habits or can’t escape at times.

    DuquÊ? Too lazy to pick a pic

    Next time people talk crap about any other league defeat bar Kanto, I hope they remember this "fight". Ash would deserve be kicked out on top 8 just because of that fake out, even if it's part of rowlet's personality.

    Honestly, I think Hala did just concede continue the battle to humbles Hau with some lesson about arrogance (which he kinda was), but Hau was robbed. What a freaking BS.

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    thing is, that's not a good move for prolonged fights especially when you add Brave Bird into the mix.
