Rivalry makes more sense with Raihan instead of making Bea OP. Guess foot fetish writers. Pikanerfed. If G Farfetch'd isn't battling, at least use your Gengar that knows Psychic and haven't battled in a while. But then Gengar would've swept Bea and no round 3 with Machamp. Super Aura Lucario in the future.

Bayleef!!!!

I'm happy.

Bea was almost in Hyper/Ultra class, Pikachu losing was fine.

I knew people would assume gym leader = weak trainer with Raihan being apparently the only exception.


What a crap episode. Pikachu was pointless as usual and Ash didn't even win depsite Riolu using DEM. They didn't even showed at least a montage of Ash getting back to his rank with his other team members.
The only good thing was seeing Bayleef in a flashback.

Pikachu knocked out Hitmontop what do you mean pointless. "Shouldn't have been used" sure but pointless?

Good to see Bayleef! Reserves really seems to make a comeback in this series...

But Pikachu is reset as well... How can he beat Leon's Charizard?

How was Pikachu reset/nerfed if it was defeated by the ace of an almost top100 trainer in the world?

Kind of shocked about the draw. But hey, if it means having Bea around longer to be Ash's female rival, I'm down for it.

Speaking of whom, she was great this episode. Aside from her strict personality in battle, she was adorable with being a messy eater during that sweets-eating scene.

And we got little Bea, too!

The only thing that kinda bugs me is the draw from this fight. But hey, at least Riolu didn't evolve just yet.

Better than the first matchup.

Chuck's return was very enjoyable and
the callback to Ash's battle complete with Bayleef cameo was beautiful, give me more of this I say!

Pikachu's Electroweb strategy was real nice too, makes me so glad they tossed Electro Ball to the wayside considering it could never do much and Riolu managed to hold his own... with it ending on a tie too!

And it was a draw as I was expecting. The battle looked a bit weird for me, felt like it could go on just a bit more, but nothing too bad.
Now I'm waiting for round 3 in Galar with Gigantamax Machamp and Pikachu.
