Anime Questions V2 *READ BEFORE MAKING NEW THREADS*

Did they pull an electrified golden Pidgeot attack that makes no sense again in Ash's battle VS Hapu? its been a while since they pulled a stunt like this with ineffective attacks somehow getting thru plot hole logic. i loosely follow the anime from thime to time for the past few months when the ENG dub comes out and often skip thru boring sections/episodes.

No, they pulled the old-school Soak from back in Pewter Gym. Also, the Pokemon you're thinking of is Swellow, not Pidgeot.

At least with Hapu there was established game logic they were pulling on. They just played it very, very liberally.
"The user shoots a torrent of water at the target and changes the target's type to Water."
^The description for Soak in the game. While Pikachu may not have literally used the move, he certainly invoked its effects.

...Though that was still a pretty bad battle overall.

That move clearly was created to retroactively justify the Onix battle. Still haven't done that with Thunder Armor.

It looked like a good battle if you discarded logic then realized that they threw a heavy wool blanket over your head. It would have made more sense if they used electricity to splash water on the opponent a few times then go iron tail. Electroball splash and iron tail is how it should have been. Though the electric attack might need to be directed to destroy a pillar to make a splash. Lol the winning move could have been splash.

Splash is called Hop in Japanese, so they wouldn't have made that pun.

so be it , though thats how i see it winning. still splashing water onto those weak to it could serve to weaken them and get finished off by neutral move.

So is it ever explained in the Necrozma 4 parter why the adults were all tired and not the pokemon or students (Main characters)?

Any music nerds on here? I'm looking for a track featured in "The Rivalry Revival" (finale of orange islands) which plays right when Ash and Gary finish their battle.

I watched the dub btw.

I believe it's the track labeled 1997-1998_M73 on Pocket Monsters Original Soundtrack Best Vol.2.

I was thinking about this earlier, but what was the name of the episode where Jessie, James and Meowth disguised themselves as plants to spy on Ash and his pals? I remember it being an older episode from OS most likely.

OS144: Gettin' the Bugs Out! which was Ash's gym battle against Bugsy

Were Dragon Claw and Blast Burn used again after THAT battle?
Dragon Claw, at least, was used by Ryuki in Sun & Moon 118, and by Plumeri in 129.

I wonder if there was an episode with a plot similar to "The Psyduck Stops Here", where obviously parent Pokemon hatched their eggs. Thanks in advance.

Another question: what Japanese Pokemon opening or ending had a staircase of light, which was seen in the 'I Politoed Ya So' episode (dubbed)? And could you tell me, what happened on it in details?

It's from the fourth opening theme, Whiteberry's cover of Mezase Pokemon Master. The scene shows Satoshi running up a staircase of light with the three legendary Kanto birds flying past him, before the perspective shifts and we see that the Pokemon League torch is sitting on the top of the stairs.
