Thank you, SPPf! :)
On another note, I'm disappointed Lilian didn't yell "HERE WE GO!"
Very very cool looking he used cotton spore and then needle arm to stab through all the spores.Volt Tackle said:What were the attacks Cacturne used in the appeal?
Because it was Harley (who has a lot of fans, for some reason) who got beaten...halloweenghost said:I don't see why everyone complains about May's squirtle.. so what it is strong... some pokemon just are... Ash's pikachu is stronger then some as well when he first got it.
Pikachu may've been noted as being exceptionally strong for its species (although, Rocket Dan could've been off, considering it got an extra charged by Satoshi peddling the bike), but do remember that it wouldn't obey Satoshi at first, and he had to go through a lot of bulls*** with that flock of Onisuzume in order to gain its trust. In the end, I'd say Satoshi rightfully earned that sort of power, and even with it, Pikachu suffered several losses. Overall, things are a bit more realistic with Satoshi's Pikachu.halloweenghost said:I don't see why everyone complains about May's squirtle.. so what it is strong... some pokemon just are...

I'll name five.name one. I can debate with you on how Zenigame's cheaper than all of this "other crap" combined.
1. Pikachu's an electric Pokemon, so it'd have a natural resistance to its own element. Plus, Oosubame has proven to have a high endurance towards electricity (plus, Pikachu was on top of it, taking the full brunt of the lightning bolt). I really don't get why so many people take this to be a cop-out win. So Satoshi took advantage of his Pokemon's resistances, amplified Pikachu's electricity through clouds in the outdoor scenery, and give them a coating that would add an extra boost to their physical attacks. What's so unbelievable about it?Rancid Meat said:I'll name five.
1. Electric coating. Sure Pikachu and Swellow are strong and worthy of victories. But that electric coating was extremely cheap.
2. Dusclops versus Skitty. Skitty not only used assist and lucked out with power moves but the blizzard worked perfectly when she needed it.
3. Skitty vs. Houndoom. We've debated over this one, but I still think Skitty's weak Blizzard cannot overpower Houndoom's powerful Flamethrower (and STAB if it applies to the anime). The point system was all wrong in this one too.
4. Eevee vs. Marshtomp. The point system was way off and Marshtomp was far more experienced then the newborn.
5. Cacturne and Wigglytuff vs. Eevee and Munchlax- Nothing that bad but the ohko on Cacturne and the hopping on Eevees light tail with Munchlaxs 200 pound body. Eevee and even Munchlax were far too weak for this win.
Stop blabbing about this particular fight. Squirtles victory was very cheap but May has pulled worse crap in other senarios.
Both Pokemon were well-trained in time for the Grand Festival, much earlier in fact. They certainly seemed like capable fighters.Rancid Meat said:Eevee and even Munchlax were far too weak for this win.
No. I said I agreed with you about Squirtle being cheap, however it is no cheaper then any other pokemon.Now, you wanna try telling me how Zenigame vs. Ariados (or Zenigame's "development" in general) wasn't cheap?
1. Because basically the clouds shouldn't be able to shoot electricity right back at them and create an electric coating.1. Pikachu's an electric Pokemon, so it'd have a natural resistance to its own element. Plus, Oosubame has proven to have a high endurance towards electricity (plus, Pikachu was on top of it, taking the full brunt of the lightning bolt). I really don't get why so many people take this to be a cop-out win. So Satoshi took advantage of his Pokemon's resistances, amplified Pikachu's electricity through clouds in the outdoor scenery, and give them a coating that would add an extra boost to their physical attacks. What's so unbelievable about it?
2. I only saw this contest once but from what I remember,she happened to get the right move at the right time. (string shot when any other move would have failed). Also Blizzard was still not fully learned because like when Pikachu learned Iron Tail, Skitty couldn't execute the move every time. May happened to get lucky by having Blizzard work at the last second. (which were basically the 10% odds of Ariados freezing).2. I've debated this one too many times.... the writing up to this contest was actually pretty good and made Eneko seem (realistically) well-prepared to win. It learned Assist, a part of its natural moveset, and it learned Blizzard after watching Johny in action. The writing only fell flat for the contest itself. And everyone needs to stop acting like Assist is some uber luck-out move. None of the attacks in Haruka's team are useless, however, none of them are extremely uber, neither. If Haruka gets Eneko back, and she gains a Pokemon that learns Explosion or Splash or something disadvantageous, and it never came up during Assist (or likewise, Assist results in several Hyper Beams in a row), then you should complain.
3. STAB may not exist, but fire still overpowers ice in the anime and games. Fire melts ice into nothing, not water as seen many times before. Also, the move canceled itself out and Houndoom lost almost twice as many points as Skitty.3. STAB doesn't seem to exist in the anime. Besides, fire and ice can logically cancel each other out. Ice melts, turns to water, extinguishes fire.
4. Discussed this many times too, that Marshtomp didn't have much experience but overall throughout the whole Hoenn season had far more training then Eevee did in its quick preparation. The main reason though, was the point system being messed up which makes alot of contest battles poor. The points always take off about double from the enemy then May.4. Again, Eievui was well-trained and it scoring a win would seem perfectly believable, but the writing for that particular battle just fell flat.
Still a one hit Ko was a little much but I'll give you this one, (despite ghost barely even affecting dark).5. Gonbe bouncing off of Eievui's tail was cheap, I admit, but people need to stop having a p*ssy-fit over Noctus's one-hit KO. Focus Punch increased the velocity of a Shadow Ball, making it result in a larger impact, and Noctus wasn't prepared to guard, so it going down like it did made sense. And what the f*** do you mean by this?
I agree 100%. People are complaining so much, only because Harley lost and not a random coordinator of the day. I think that Squirtle's win (after seeing it in action) was perfectly believable. The only part I had a problem with was that after Ariados was frozen, Harley lost more than half his points, which was just cheap. However, it didn't even matter, because Ariados was Ko'ed. I also didn't know "bubble" exploded when it hit.Gouryujiin said:Awww, poor widdle Harly got his a*s handed to him by a "baby"
I swear to God. People are only sh*tting kittens over this because it was Harley that lost. If it was anyone else there would be no upset.
