A Hurdle For Squirtle (421)

Discussion in 'Pokémon - Advanced Battle' started by Serebii, Sep 22, 2005.

    As soon as Squirtle fired off Ice Beam, Ariados was immobilised. Of course it couldn't fight back. After it unfroze it had the icy webbing to deal with; with no foothold, it still couldn't do anything. The ending of the battle happened so quickly, I can't think of a moment when it could have shot off an attack.

    it could have shot off a web at any moment to keep it from falling. Sliding down a frozen web doesn't keep it from doing that.

    It was struggling hard just to keep its footing. Shooting a web might have worked, but the right solution doesn't always occur when you're panicking. I've noticed that Harley tends to freeze (no pun intended) when the tide of a battle starts to turn against him. He usually opens with a strong offensive, but whenever May manages to deal some damage back, he gets flustered.

    I'm not sure if it's pointed out before but the reason Harley didn't use Ariados in the Grand Festival because he lost to May in the first round. He didn't get a chance to use it.

    What were the attacks Cacturne used in the appeal?

    That's a good point. But unless he was saving it up for a tough opponent, a la Drew's Flygon, then it's a bit strange that he didn't use it at all throughout the Festival. Cacturne and Banette did the appeals, too.

    Three words for you: COOLEST CONTEST EVER!!

    There isn't much better than Harley's Ariados getting schooled by May's Squirtle.

    This episode was awesome. It was funny when Jessie collapsed after Cacnea hugged her for too long. Another funny part was when Harley was having a blast playing around with Wobuffet.The part with May using her bandana in the 1st round was awesome. The TC was kind of cool. Just one question. When Harley had Squirtle on a Spider Web he had Ariados charge at Squirtle. Did I hear wrong or did he command his Ariados to use Double Edge?

    I finally got to see why everyone hates Squirtle. That was the crappiest contest win I've ever seen (I thought it was the Eevee/Marshstomp battle). One attack killing 50% of your points?

    Awesome! They kept the original music for May's final win! That's great. Dunno if they've been doing that for past contests since I haven't been following them, but at least it isn't the synthed crap that we've had to endure in the past.

    Anyone else notice Jessie performed in this contest without cheating? First time I can remember she performed while following the rules.

    Also, she didn't try to get revenge by threatning to steal the pokemon who beat her.

    lol it was really funny when Empress Jessabella (Jessie) froze up from hugging Cacnea! And yes, Harley did say DOUBLE EDGE!

    Ariados got frozen solid by the Ice beam, what do you expect?

    Aside from that, the rest of the Contest was excellent. Harley Vs. Jessie was one of the funniest parts of the episode.

    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.



    anyways.. I think Jessie had the best appeal IMO, the pin missle effect was great


    Volt Tackle: Harley's appeal moves were cotton spore with needle arm..

    You know, I recorded the episode using my WINDOWS XP MEDIA CENTER EDITION! If you want a copy of the file, PM me with your email address. I'll send it over via email.

    That was just as disgusting in motion as it was in still pictures, maybe even worse. Ariados is such a cool customer until it's on ice, then it's a idiot. Oh, the cheapness.

    ... You know not the power of an Ariados on ice!

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Did Jessie call Harley a mushroom-head? XD

    Squirtle vs. Ariados...eh, my feelings are about the same as everyone else's.

    For the second week in a row, they had a good Trainer's Choice, though I actually got this one right. Too bad it came at the very tail end of 4Kids' run. Speaking of which, is the finale going to be held over for the entire summer? There's no episode next week.

    Am I thinking of a different episode, or did they totally cut Sonansu flying in from the ceiling and getting freaked out by Ariadosu's Scary Face? If not, which episode is that?

    Anyway...Harley was fabulous in this episode. 4Kids is so awesome at dubbing him. His famous "Hello-oo" made a return in this one. Musashi looked better than usual in this one...maybe it was the haircut.\

    No comment on Zenigame's win.

    Cheers!

    You're thinking of the next Harley episode which will be his first appearance under PUSA's watch.
