    Rampardos VS Bastiodon!

    After a few days waiting, Ash & Co. learn that Byron, the gym leader, has returned to the gym. Ash is eager to challenge Byron to earn his sixth badge. However, when he gets there, he sees that Roark has arrived. Roark states that he is Byron's son and they have differing views on which fossil Pokémon is best. To decide it, Byron & Roark decide to battle using their Pokémon. Who will win?

    It seems that they are representing Rampardos (by its shape) as a powerful spear & Bastiodon (by its head shape) as a ultimate defense (something which we had in Naruto too, between Gaara's Ultimate Sand Defense & Kimimaro's Ultimate Spear Attack).

    Well, it LOOKS like a good episode, but those pics alone aren't much to go on. I'll have to wait till I see it.

    ...wait, is that Chibi Roark? I think we better hide before the fangirls get wind of this.

    My points for Roark just skyrocketed passed Volkner's.

    And Byron as well, I guess.

    Concerning the episode, I'm quite interested into hearing what Bastiodon sounds like and how he moves... it looks more like a robot than anything.

    Either that or a bit of long-dead Chikorita.

    Something like that. I think it's just a fossilized leaf. So technically, it is a leaf stone :p

    Disapointing, but not unexpected. For those who havn't seen the pics or ep yet, no one wins. TR inturrupt, steal the fossils, then Byron and Roark team up on them. I havn't seen the ep yet, just the pics, so im not sure who was winning, but it looks like its just a draw.

    It's really annoying when they do that. I'd like to have seen a clear winner. But some of the moves on both sides look really cool.

    According to the rules this is not to be discussed.

    cool, looks like Roark will be there for Ash's gym battle.
  13. Roark had his helmet from childhood...?
    Hehe, insert your own joke here. :p

    I think this is going to be an episode I have to watch before getting an honest opinion. However, it looks like Byron likes to torment his son.

    Aaaaw, little Roark! ^_^

    It does look like a Leaf Stone or they're revealing new fossils for 5th Gen, but I think it's a Leaf Stone. Looking at the pictures on Serebii now, episode watching later! <3

    Looks great, Roark as a kid is so cute and I wanted Byron to win that battle!

    Fangirlism indeed. :p

    ...Anyway... according to Squaaah, it's 'Team Rocket-interrupts-and-no-one-wins' again. But heck, I don't care about that part. So... how was the actual episode, anyway?

    Byron looks...kinda...well, not the type you'd wanna meet in a dark quarry at night.

    It probably would've done, since Bastiodon's defences and Rampardos's attack strength cancel each other out. At least, I think so.

    If TR hadn't interrupted, there probably would've been an outcome.
