    Burn with Passion! Get Filled with Intensity! A Full Battle!!!

    The battle between Ash and Kukui rages on. With Ash being the Alola League Champion and Kukui being the Professor of the region known for his battling skill, the battle could go either way and with Kukui bringing in Pokémon from all around the world, Ash faces a tough challenge, especially when Kukui sends in Venusaur against Ash's Rowlet. Will Ash be able to push through?

    Really? It's the final battle and we still don't know if Rowlet is using Substitute or Feather Dance?

    Is this going to be a running gag among the writers? Like Jessie always ordering her Pokemon to "do something" instead of actual attacks?

    I really liked the battles tbh, they were pretty unique instead of just attack landing. It was a little rushed but that's to be expected.

    This episode really flew by. Disappointed Melmetal didn't get to use more moves but it got a win, everyone else has contributed in meaningful ways so far, and I'm hyped to finally see Naganadel fight next week, along with the final showdown between Torracat and Incineroar. I'm glad they pulled out all the stops this week and just went full action with only brief breaks to the audience, it's been a long time since we've had a battle episode this fast paced.

  7. I had a lot of fun. The comedy was on-point.

    Braviary and Rowlet playing ping-pong with the Everstone, Empoleon's "well what the hell do I do now?" face when Melmetal tanked Whirlpool, and the cutaways to the classmates and their Pokemon getting really into the battle were the highlights for me. Especially that last one. It's an improvement over Ash's friends sitting still looking concerned.

    The strategies in this battle aren't the most sophisticated, but I appreciate everyone's getting something to do, and how they've shown off some unique moves.

    So no mega, makes sense and predictible alola has no elation with ME, ilma only got one since he wa in kalos, but how is lucario beating naganadel a tretch since naganadel has no experience and could be like noivern.

    Actually, I think it was Feather Dance. Ash did call for Rowlet to use it.

    Anyways, kinda upset that Lycanroc got taken down by Braviary. That's probably my only real gripe for this episode. Everything else was pretty awesome. Rowlet getting a good win against Braviary, Torracat taking down Venusaur, and Melmetal proving he's not some jobber by taking down Empoleon, who Pikachu was struggling to beat!

    Honestly curious to see how the next episode shapes up. Naganadel has Thunderbolt, Megahorn, likely Dragon Pulse, and a fourth move we have yet to see. It's probably a Poison type move, so we won't see much of it. Anyways, my money's on Naganadel beating Lucario and then losing to Incineroar, who draws against Torracat before Pikachu VS Tapu Koko.

    Enjoyed the battles regardless of certain outcomes. Solid 9/10 episode for me.

    Jeekyu then immediately refers to it as substitution. This same thing happened before in the Hau match, and since two different writers did the same thing, it's not a coincidence.

    Feather Dance is supposed to lower an opponent's attack power, not escape from traps. It is some kind of gag that Rowlet is using a completely different move from what Ash is calling, but the gag isn't being explained to the audience.

    I think it might be X-Scissor, Naganadel doesn't learn Megahorn and Ash called for it when the episode finished, but it looks weird because it's fully animated at the stinger and not like the hands or anything else that might make an X

    Did you not see Empoleon being knocked right into Kukui?

    Huh. Got me fooled.

    And to the point Doppelganger is making, I guess we'll never know. Not like it mattered. Rowlet still lost to Venusaur despite that psuedo-Feather Dance/Substitute.

    EDIT: Just looked up Naganadel's movepool. Looks like it could be Fell Stinger, too.

    And Torracat took out Venusaur in two hits. What’s your point?

    Agoyon's move was X-Scissor. Unless Satoshi somehow called out the wrong move but I would assume that neither he nor the writers would be that sloppy.

    Ash's lycannroc is lame it got beaten by braviary (which was oneshotted by mega aggron some 50 episodes ago) despite having type advantage, even in finals it was getting dominated by gladion's lycannroc until ash told him to counter the counter move in last second. Torracat so far is more impressive.

    And giving naganadel a bug type move looks like a last ditch addition for it would be used to beat a fighting type lucario

    Are you talking to me or Doppelganger?

    Rowlet was already worn from battling Braviary, so I didn't think he'd last in a battle against Venusaur. And Torracat was already boosted from tanking and absorbing Incineroar's Blast Burn, so it's not like it wasn't going to get an easy win.

    More importantly, I'm loving how Ash is actually making switches in between battles and during battles to get wins and keep his team in the game. It's a good callback to how Ash did that as an old school trainer and sort of lost that going into Kalos' League.
