I suppose you're right with the Charizard reference, but something about just feels off for some reason. I really wonder what'll happen to it after the battle. Oak's or back to Air battle master?It doesn't matter Hyuuga Neji b/c Ash still had it longer and he did do some training with Gliscor. Charizard has been trained by another person since Johto. As long as Ash uses pokemon he originally caught then I have no problem.
Wait so you don't like ash's buizel he didn't catch him?It doesn't matter Hyuuga Neji b/c Ash still had it longer and he did do some training with Gliscor. Charizard has been trained by another person since Johto. As long as Ash uses pokemon he originally caught then I have no problem.
I don't think Ash's Pikachu will battle a 3rd Electivire..... Don't make me laugh. Pikachu will battle Froslass and defeat it I assume, I think the matches will go like this.if pikachu managed to beat volkners electivire and put a great fight against garys electivire so then pauls electivire is much weaker and younger....ash should use pikachu against it
I don't think Ninjask is weak.Paul will definitely take advantage of its ability & with that speed it can't be an easy pkmn to battle.I think it'll face all of Ash's pkmn at some point,raising its speed & probably its attack too[SD] & Baton Passing constantlyMeh, actually I think Ninjask is Paul's weakest pokemon, it can't beat Pikachu.
I would reference Charizard and Squirtle, but this League pretty much confirms that ALL of Ash's pokemon train at Oak's lab too. If Gliscor/Charizard/Squirtle are cheap, so are the rest of his reserves.At this point the only thing that bothers me about the battle is Gliscor to some extent. Technically it was trained by another person to get stronger, not Ash. Ash did train it while it was a Gligar, and when it was a Gliscor, but meh.
Paul's team doesn't bother me at all. I'm glad he's using different Pokemon. Makes the battle more interesting. Electivire is obviously in there to have the final showdown with Infernape, but Froslass/Ninjask/Gastrodon are all interesting. Better than seeing that bear again.
Not many people here think those pokemon at "weak" except for a selected few. But at the same time, no matter how strong those new pokemon's, how can the writers justify that they are stronger/faster and a better choice for Paul than his previous team with a end result of Ash winning 6:5 and the previous result is Paul winning 6:2? I mean, come on, no matter how much stronger they are, how fast they move, and how many outstanding and unpredictable strategies Paul put forward, the result with these Pokemon and Paul's team will be a 6:5 lost.I'm sorry, can someone please explain to me why these pokemon MUST be weak?
Fact is, Paul has always released pokemon immediately after seeing that they were weak and unworthy of his training style. Everything he owns must be insanely powerful. As opposed to Ash who just trains whatever may come.
Starly - The first two he released simply because they didn't have Aerial Ace. The third was released for not being strong enough even though it won it's battle. High standards is an understatement.
Stantler - He checked his pokedex and confirmed that it wasn't good enough. If Ninjask, Froslass, Drapion, Aggron, and Gastrodon were weak, he would have done the same to them.
Azumarill - Sometimes Paul gives pokemon a chance and lets them battle. Azumarill was one of them. But if they severely disappoint him, he will release them right away. I highly doubt Paul would use a newly caught pokemon that he wasn't sure of this late in the game. It's just not his style at all.
Chimchar - This one was a special exception. He oly held onto it as long as he did because he was trying to reawaken the power he seen when he first caught it. Ninjask was caught right before Chimchar BTW.
As for the other pokemon he held on to, they were all powerful and had no reason to be released.
Torterra - His starter. Only battle it ever lost was against Cynthia.
Magmortar -Made quick work of Maylene's Lucario
Electivire - Seems to be his most relied on and powerful pokemon
Honchkrow - Always proved to be tough.
Ursaring - Murders before it finally faints (after what would equate to like 5000 HP worth of damage in the games)
Nidoking - We've only seen it battle against Brandon and his three Regis. Count? no.
Aggron - See Nidoking
Hariyama - See Nidoking
Gliscor - Seemed pretty good based on how it massacred Gligar.
And now the one I always here excuses about
Weavile: A pokemon that I don't get why it's considered weak. Aside from the battle against Ash and Cynthia it didn't even have a battle with a conclusion. The battle against Cynthia certainly doesn't count. If it does than Honchkrow is weak too. Side note: Weavile and Murkrow were both caught BEFORE Paul came to Sinnoh so he's had them for at least two regions now. Aside from that there was the "battle" against Gliscor where it got knocked over (knocked over, the new KO.) I seriously don't get why that matters sense the same thing happened to Electabuzz. Electabuzz actually went crashing into Paul. And then there was the battle against Staraptor, the only battle it lost that was justified. Why can't Weavile be strong but Staraptor was just stronger? It really seems to me like some of you guys would claim anything certain pokemon defeat is weak. It took a 4X super-effective powerhouse attack for Weavile to even defeat the thing too...
So someone please explain to me why pokemon we haven't even seen yet are already confirmed to be pitiful weaklings?
The point would be to pass on the status boosts. Besides, that's one of the main drawing points of ninjask, and they could easily portray baton pass as a pokemon switch that occurs instantly, rather then "return, pick new pokeball, throw new pokeball".And for the record, Paul's Ninjask doesn't need Baton Pass. Baton Pass is one of those moves that becomes obsolete in the anime, where a trainer can recall their Pokemon at any time rather than having to time it like in the games.
