A Rivalry to Gible On! (613)

Discussion in 'Pokémon - Diamond & Pearl: Galactic Battle' started by Serebii, Oct 1, 2009.

    On their way to Suiren Town, Ash & Co. learn of a Gible causing many problems to many trainers Pokémon. Ash & Co. quickly decide to go investigate. Kazunari, eager to capture the Gible, convinces everyone to help him track it down. Will they succeed?

    This ep... Where do I start?

    Not only was only 1/3 the ep about Gible, the other 2/3s where more on shippin', which would make sense if the ep's called like "Ash and Dawn's Love Life!" or somethin'.

    Kazunari catches Gible. No Ash argument over that.

    Really, this ep's just so bland, it wasn't funny. Even the Trapinch cameo in this ep was better than whatever Gible was doin' (Though Kazunari's fishin' idea was funny).

    Ash not getting Gible=instant fail. Seriously. OK, everyone. Grab your torches and pitchforks and meet me in Japan! We're forming an angry mob and storming the writers' homes!

    Really now!
    Seriously though this was kinda lame. I wanted ash to get it but no! Damn it.

    I also laughed at how people thought the ep would be a copy of the Totodile ep from the Johto era.

    The writers. Definitely. For far too long, they've deprived Ash of a Dragon-type for no good reason. I mean, back in Kanto, sure, because the Dragon-type was seen as only manageable by experienced trainers! But now, Ash IS an experienced trainer! He's participated in four different Pokemon league tournaments, he's conquered the Battle Frontier, he's taken down four different legendary Pokemon! Doesn't Ash deserve to be treated like the veteran trainer he is? Doesn't he deserve a badass Pokemon like Gible, and eventually, Garchomp? I know he does! And I hate the writers for not realizing this!

    That would be me. So whatever. I just hope at least dawn wins this contest.

    Gible's not even close to badass, and I'm sick of hearin' that. I do realize it's a general opinion, but I can only see Gible as a fatty shark-thing with its mouth being 1/2 of its body.

    Kazunari probably has a "Jaw" theme team, anyway. Gible's a perfect companion to his Totodile imo.

    I couldn't agree more! This was the BEST chance for Ash to finally catch a true Dragon type, and while I'm disappointed Ash didn't catch it, I kinda knew in the back of my head he wouldn't. Sigh......

    No surprise on Ash not getting it, but I didnt expect the other guy to actually get it. i thought they'd pull some cheesy thing where they both decide to let Gible be.

    He should've caught that one Trapinch in the episode. That would've been cool.

    Not to mention 5 years late. Would it have killed em to give ash a Flygon in Hoenn?

    That actually reminded me of that one Flygon in the Jirachi movie. When I was younger, I actually believed Ash was goin' to catch it. XP

    I knew I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. Ah well (sigh)

    It's okay for me even if Ash doesn't catch it... I had expect that curly hair dude to catch it anyways... filler~!

    Im fine that Ash didnt get it. what really saddens me is that Kazunari caught it. I just dont like him

    Grrr! I'm officially fed up with what they've done! They've gone too far this time to give a rookie a Dragon-type, while Ash who is clearly experienced is deprived of one! Why do they have this "no dragon/dark/psychic/steel/ghost (he let Haunter go?)-type" rule on Ash anyway? It would make Ash's team a whole lot more interesting...grrrr....


    So how did that manage to happen ? Did Ash let him have Gible or did he screw up and Kazunari got lucky ?

    Screwed up and Kazu got lucky.


    Thanks for answering, seems like the writers have a grudge against Ash having any Dragon types >_<
