Now all those times Max was saying "You'll never beat my Dad/My Dad is unbeatable!" make a lot of sense with his breakdown at the end of the episode. It made me feel sorry for him.
Regarding that, I'm torn between these two things. On one hand, I do think Max was overreacting at Norman's loss. I mean, he's 8/9 years old now. That should be old enough to realize that Daddy is going to lose the occasional gym battle, and is not some indestructible and unbeatable person. Yet, on the other hand, I think people should give him a break. Put yourself in his shoes. How would you feel if you saw your hero lose for the first time?
Again, I'm torn between these two things and don't know which one I truly feel more strongly about....
The battle itself.
Never thought that Slakoth would stay standing for that long.
That was one powerful (and amazing) scratch attack on Torkoal Vigoroth did.
Best battle, though, was definitely Grovyle and Slaking. An awesome battle!
