Satoshi's match at the Hodomoe Gym definitely made him seem skilled by comparison to how he was portrayed at the Raimon Gym at least. And even Yacon himself managed to be a more entertaining Gym Leader than Kamitsure, to me at least.Good battle all around. It was very enjoyable to watch and Ash actually looked competent here. Roggenrola evolving was a little questionable but it doesn't ruin the episode or anything.
His match was ridiculous since he had virtually zero training, but I guess he needed to seem strong all of a sudden to justify his evolution.Twilight-Kun said:I'm calling hax on Roggenrola being able to take half a dozen Drill Runs, and then survive a Horn Drill
It's hilarious because that pretty much sums up the majority of Ash's BW team that did manage to evolve, while the pokémon that actually deserved to have the animation budget wasted on them were ignoredHis match was ridiculous since he had virtually zero training, but I guess he needed to seem strong all of a sudden to justify his evolution.
Although I didn't like Yacon much, I thought he had every right to be upset since Attract was way too powerful in the BW series, and it almost always settled the battle with a single hit. It also seemed to be the writers' go-to move for whenever they needed a quick solution to a battle.Vulpicks said:I thought it was funny when Clay got upset at Ash for using Attract. He's pretty fun as far as Gym Leaders go in the anime.
