DP091: The Final Showdown! Pokémon Triathon! Speculation Thread

Well since today's episode is going to air in a hour or so, i though i would make the thread for the next episode which is going to air on 28th & which is also the last episode of the summer's school arc. Here is the summary of the episode which is released,
It's time for the last program, the "Pokémon Triathlon". The students have to master three difficult tasks with the help of their Pokémon while adapting everything they had learned during the past week. At first, they have to pick one of the Pokéballs supplied by the school at the starting line and traverse a forest with the Pokémon contained.
Afterwards, the students will pick another Pokéball and cross a lake with the Water Pokémon inside it. Their last task is to reach the goal with the chosen partner Pokémon. Team Red, which is currently second place, hope for a come-from-behind victory against Team Blue...

So lets discuss!:)

Note:- I will add preview pics of this episode if i can get them.

it has to be one of the best episodes we have seen so far in sinnoh...wish someone good will be in charge of animating this one.
So, a group wins the triathlon, not a single person. Hopefully the winning team will get something good that might tweak the future plot devices.

Spoink! Spoink! It's funny because while they were in Hoenn, I thought Ash caught Spoink (until I learned it was Snorunt). Plus I find it funny that Ash is beating Brock.

And what the hell! Brock and Onix!!!! Come on he already had an Onix, so what's the point of letting him use one, how about something more original.

So Dawn and Sharpedo? Interesting.

Holy crap! SharPedo is being rode on by Dawn?

Best. Episode. EVAR.

Dawn? On a Sharpedo? Oh, I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere folks! Haw haw haw.
Edit: Damn you, Fishyfool. That was mean.

How the hell he's able to sit on that thing, let alone it being able to carry him in the first place is anyone's guess. Thank you cartoons, and your reality bending majesty. Yes, Ash traversing by pogo-powered piglett is an instant classic.
Though the same can't be said for Brock and Onix. Have they been deliberately trying to make him boring this arc or something? I mean, Dodrio has been done to death too (which is a crime, since 'duo is hella funnier), but at least Dawn didn't have one of them for a billion episodes.

Well I liked Sharpedo, but Brock should've gotten it. Spoink wasn't really needed......... but it left an Onix behind. What's that
Anyway is the winning team gonna get anything?

Sharpedo on Dawn...it speaks for itself.

Spoink and Sharpedo are promising, but I'm disappointed at Dodrio and Onix. Considering it's thrity feet long, those things sure are common! I realise that pokemon who can move on-land and would be able to carry a human are hardly plentiful, but seriously. Kanto pokemon have had a bit of an unfair bias this arc, methinks.

Ash on Spoink? Now that's just plain weird. This episode should be fun. Especially with Dawn on Sharpedo. Little disappointed with Brock getting Onix.

Yes, I share the same ire everyone ese does with old outdated Brock getting old outdated Onix. Those things aren't exactly rare, now, are they?

Needless to say, one agrees with Gravy in that Pogo-Piglet is absolutely hilarious. Oh d-d-d-d-dear!

I didn't care before but I hope this is Brock's last season, I mean he could show up in a few episodes but Brock has become pointless. If the writers aren't even going to try, they might as well just drop him.

And while it might get "lonely" I hope the 5th gen, there will be only two main characters. Ash and the 5th gen girl.

PS: Apparently Ash uses Lapras during the water race, but at least I don't find that as annoying as Brock and Onix

That's probably why they keep him. Rather than making a new guy to write for with new quirks and a new profession, they can just write the same old crap for Brock and give him 1 cool Pokemon like Ludicolo or Croagunk per saga. Even though they're cool, it doesn't make up for poor and lazy writing.

How the hell is Ash sitting on that Spoink? From the picture his holding on to nothing! But I guess its original and funny.

Personally I can't wait to see Brock's comment and reaction towards Onix, However something else might have been better as we already had a 3 epsiode arc featuring an Onix in the rock gym.

Maybe some better "riding" pokemon would have been better like Brock on a Stanler and Dawn on a Ninoqueen or Ponyta?

Well, the guys get's 3 Pokemon each so maybe Brock will get better with the other two.

At first, they have to pick one of the Pokéballs supplied by the school at the starting line and traverse a forest with the Pokémon contained.
Afterwards, the students will pick another Pokéball and cross a lake with the Water Pokémon inside it. Their last task is to reach the goal with the chosen partner Pokémon
So, the last task...when it says Chosen Partner, does that mean the ones they got Day 1, or, like, their own?

Thank you, SPPf! :)
Ah, good ol' Onix. Has it really been an entire year since we've seen its redundant, rocky face? That may actually be a new record.

As for Dawn, she's officially jumped the shark. Y'know, since all the pedo jokes were already used up.
...I'll leave now.
