    Veilstone Gym! Lucario VS Buizel!

    After re-gaining her confidence in a battle with Dawn, Maylene accepts Ash's gym battle challenge. In a fierce 3 on 3 fight, Ash faces a tough challenge indeed. With Maylene using Machoke, Meditite and Lucario and Ash using Staravia, Chimchar & Buizel, things are going to get tougher before they get easier. Will Ash finally win his 3rd Sinnoh Badge?

    Saw the pics on the japanese site. It seems that Buizel used Water Pulse somehow on its own during the battle because i didn't see any pic which indicated that Buizel learned that before the gym battle & also that the episode seems to have started with the beginning of the gym battle. Also it seems that when Ash was having his there was a cloudy whether outside & during the fight between Lucario & Buizel the roof of the gym got destroyed some how & after sometime rain started to fall which we have seen on the preview.
    As for how the gym battle went, i was not able to understand from those pics (because the person who posted those pic is a big fan of Maylene & most of the pics posted there are of Maylene's from the episode). What i saw & understood from the pics is like this,

    Machoke fought Staravia - Staravia won
    Meditite fought Chimchar - I think Chimchar was withdrawn
    Meditite fought Staravia - Staravia won with Brave Bird
    Lucario fought Buizel - Buizel won

    It would be nice if someone who saw the episode to clarify this.

    Also we had a bit of Croagunk & Team Rocket interaction like we had during Ash's first gym battle (during Ash's rematch) & i think Croagunk blasted them off.

    And for those who don't believe Buizel learning Water Pulse here is a pic,

    The other thread was closed just as I was posting in it. Hah.

    Staravia did incredibly well for once. It's not done just yet, I see.

    Buizel DEM'd his way to victory leading me to wonder if anyone will be able to beat Lucario without resorting to something that could be considered cheap. Even Paul set Lucario up for a stronger attack by trapping it with Fire Spin first.

    Rain = Swift Swim ... for all the good that it does. It could put Lucario at a disadvantage if the floor was wet. They might even showcase tripping from Brawl. *shot*

    Edit: I forgot to mention Chimchar, which says how much I feel about him being here in general. Seems like he was shafted regardless of whether it was a withdraw or KO. As a future fighting type, and Paul's former Pokemon, I thought it would've done well here.

    I don't even want to know what Croagunk can possibly be doing in the first picture.

    Dogasu claimed that the Lucario and Buizel match was a draw, which obviously caused the battle to be a tie.

    But Maylene gave him the badge anyway.

    The second picture is similar to a scene in the battle with Roark and Ash...

    I wonder if Lucario got angry. I wouldn't think he'd approve of this.

    It wasn't a tie, even if the match was a draw between lucario an Buizel Ash still had Chimchar and Staravia in Backup so he still won fairly.

    I quite like that, personally. It's the job of the Gym Leader to test, the trainer and in the event of a tie it's up to the Gym Leaer whether or not the trainer has done enough to pass.

    Did Ash's Staravia learn Brave Bird all by it's self? I'm just curious.

    Since the other thread is closed, I'd like to know the exact match ups in this Gym Battle..
     
  16. Not really, because from what I read, Chimchar and Staravia didn't faint at all. Wow, Maylene really does suck.

    Read the first post:

    Machoke fought Staravia - Staravia won
    Meditite fought Chimchar - I think Chimchar was withdrawn
    Meditite fought Staravia - Staravia won with Brave Bird
    Lucario fought Buizel - Buizel won

    Edit:

    She should give her Lucario to Ash. He do much better-er.

    So does Ash win the match or is it a draw? If Ash win can someone post the picture.

    Other posts seem to confirm that Chimchar was withdrawn.

    It's been a while since I've seen people this antsy.
