    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.

    thank you for confirming that, golden swellow is still BS anime logic much like the soak onix. lol, your sig pic is what i thought when i saw pikachu take out hapu.

    At least with Hapu there was established game logic they were pulling on. They just played it very, very liberally.
    ^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.
