    A Shape of Things To Come

    Finally at the first Gym of Sinnoh, Ash meets up with the Gym Leader, Roark, a trainer who specialises in Rock type Pokémon. However, before Ash gets a chance to challenge him, his rival Paul appears and challenges Roark. Will Paul beat Roark? Will Ash get to battle and beat Roark?

    Seems Hyouta has Geodude, Onix & Zugaidosu.

    Shinji challenged him with Azumarill, Elekid & Hikozaru. Shinji Won

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    Accorrding to the results it seems Azumarrill did lose to Geodude, proving that it was indeed a crappy Azumarrill, i also find it sad he won the match using only Elekid, seems he ain't no different than Ash when it comes to electric vs rock.

    Shinji is as cheap as Ash it seems. LOL?

    hmm, i didn't notice the part about Hikozaru, at least he did something as well, but yeah he does seem cheap.

    Or maybe Hyouta is just a BAD Gym leader and still has much to learn from his father?
    (of course this is called HUMOR before someone comes and flames me)

    *keeps mouth shut and internet knife in its internet sheath*

    Wow, I hate Shinji even more than I did before. Didn't think that was possible. :/ *snarl*

    I don't suppose anyone knows if Shinji was condescending and nasty to Hyouta at all?

    Too reinstate this....

    Zugaidosu is perfectly vunerable too Electric attacks.

    I'm also confused about what all the fuss is about.....I mean, Hyouta is an early Gym Leader. I don't get the big deal of him losing. And, he WINS in the next one and gets 2 more episodes.

    It's more the fact Shinji used Elekid the majority of the match/

    Alot of people wanted Shinji to lose to him, regardless wether Ash won or lost, shinji is now on the path to becoming a Stu character according to people at BMG and i can see why the man needs to lose, and even if he doesn't lose to Ash until the league he still needs to lose sometime, the sooner the better.

    Edit:^Woah what did Ash and Shinji do to her?

    Well, he may win battles, but I wouldn't consider him a Stu. Aren't Stu's usually all around good people? Shinji has alot of flaws.

    He's not exactly a Stu...but he's extremely stereotypical. :/ It's annoying.

    I had a feeling this would happen with Shinji...-_-

    But, I do agree he needs too lose once.
  13. Jo-Jo

    Jo-Jo blows stuff uhup

    Eeeeeevil Hikari!!! *pinches her cheeks* She is so fricking adorable. Sometimes I wonder if I really do like her, or if I've just built up an ideal construct of her in my mind that doesn't match up with reality. But then I see screenshots like that and realise no, I love her. <3

    I'm tired of Ash and Shinji going through the same routine every time they meet. It'd be okay if they were more like Ash and Gary, and Shinji was this arrogant frat-boy who just breezes through for five minutes per ep, makes Ash mad and drives on his way in his shiny red convertible. But Shinji is in entire episodes at a time, getting loads of focus, and nothing is happening with him. Every episode, he shows Ash up - which shouldn't be happening if Shinji is a newbie trainer; even if Ash started over, he still has far more battling smarts after all this time - and goes on his way at the end with the exact same attitude he started with. It's pointless. Either develop his character or stop giving him all this screentime.

    Maybe we should wait till we see MORE of the screens before we jump too conclusions? And he MAY get something next week...

    Also, I saw something about TR working in the mine and finding some artifact...I wonder if this will have something too do with the Mine episode?

    stereotypical jerk> stereotypical goodie goodies

    Therefore, Shinji> every other character.

    Well to be perfectly fair Jo-Jo, the guy has only shown up for two episodes before this. One of them was his introductory, and the other had more focus on Ash and Naetle's problems as oppossed to Shinji himself.

    As far his battling knowledge is concerned, we don't know what the hell the guy has done before recieving his first pokémon. Judging from the way he seems to battle, and how efficient his assumedly inexperienced pokémon are (apparantly Hikozaru was frightened by the opponent at one point), I'm guessing he's been into the whole idea of battling via strategy a whole lot longer than Ash has. They are roughly the same age, so perhaps that's why Shinji is only now starting to train pokémon? Too engrossed with the technical side of pokémon and shunning all the other elements.

    He got training from his Daddy, Brandon.

    Which mean we will have a Tougan vs Brandon battle in the future, in which they BOTH RIP OFF THEIR SHIRTS AND BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF EACH OTHER!

    What's NOT stereotypical in the Pokémon anime, to begin with?

    And I didn't mean to offend (you or) Hyouta in my previous post, Oos. He actually happens to be one of my favorite gym leaders *ever*, so I see no reason why I should ever flame/talk bad about him o.o
    I was just defending a favorite character of mine, that is being called cheap, Stu and stereotypical, the same way anyone else would have defended his/her own.
    So no need to feel the homicidal instinct towards me D:

    Now that's definitely something I'd want to see..

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Not too enthusiastic about Shinji winning, especially since that equates to even further Sinnoh embarrassment for Ash, further considering how Shinji will be sticking around for DP 16. Shinji doesn't need any change in character, but somebody needs to show him up and put him in his place soon enough. I'd also much rather see Hyouta win twice than lose twice.

    And when the hell are we going to see this Murkrow of his?
