Ash Heads Into Battle! VS Steven!! (1207)

That was quite underwhelming.

Wallace must be so happy after this match.

Though he should've had made a cameo watching the match.

Definitely a better battle in the 2nd half. I don't know wtf they thought they were doing with Dracovish, but it picked up once Aggron was KOd and especially in the 2nd half.

It seems to be a subtle way to explain why Metagross would go down quickly to Pikachu of all Pokémon. Strong Jaws with jaw bite attacks would cause significant damage. It might also explain why Mega Metagross was busy dodging Pikachu rather than tanking it like a boss.
 
Given that basically much of my interest in the show has been completely drained out of me, I didn't even get too annoyed when the supposed " Alain and Ash interaction " was literally nothing.

It was a good match, but for a Masters 8 match we should’ve gotten sakuga around the same level as Luffy vs Kaido or Doflamingo

Solid battle. The masters 8 matchups are definitely getting better as we go along. Underwhelming first half. Good 2nd half. I'll watch it properly with subtitles later.

I think there's a lack of music, especially early on. Makes it feek a little bit empty and lacking atmosphere. Also seeing Aggron just standing there and taking the WoW with no attempt to dodge is not great either. Not kinetic enough. Later, when Cradily came in and used its vines, that was better.

Not the worst battle. Started off weak but picked up in the second half.
I would consider it a tie with Diantha vs Lance. Would have been better if the first half wasn't as underwhelming.

I think Metagross went down a little too easily. I liked that Ash used the nuke to slow Metagross down instead of taking it out. However, they should have built on it and Ash use some type of strategy to speed up Pikachu and take Metagross out with few more hits (Instead of a single Iron tail).

You're telling me it didn't manage to shut down all the "crazy" AG retcon conspiracy theorists? What a shock.

And another Metagross becomes mince meat for Pikachu. Easily my favourite part of the episode without a doubt.

For cameos this week we have
Paul and Reggie again, Professor Oak, Delia, Tracey and some of Ash's Pokemon, Harley, Drew, Professor Birch, Morrison, Tyson, Katie, Kain and even Cerise, Chloe, Ren and Chrysa too but they were probably gonna watch anyway.
