I wish Ash uses some1 else for a change.
Unfortunately given Pikachu's disdain for being in a Pokeball, I don't see how that's possible. Granted Pikachu being out for the running and water race may be cheap as it is, but Pikachu and another Ash's Pokemon during the final lag of the triathon sounds really cheap. I guess Ash assumed that he didn't want to be unfair to the other players so he just chose Pikachu, since it was convienent.

Though I also wish he would use something else, I don't really see the problem of letting Pikachu stay with Professor Rowan and having Ash use someone else.

But then again maybe they don't care (Pikachu is an exception since people knows it hates being in a Pokeball. Remember when Ash had to climb the mountain to face Danny, and how he wasn't able to use any of his Pokemon but Pikachu was there. He wasn't disqualified for just having Pikachu there.) and the only reason why were assuming it's Pikachu, is because its the only one we saw in the preview. Ash could very well be using a different Pokemon than Pikachu (but he probably isn't).

Seeing Brock ride on Lapras is a little... eh. I would have prefered Lapras to be Ash's across-the-lake Pokemon just for old time's sake. That said, people would probably have gone on about it being foreshadowing. (Although one of my guilty pleasures is Lapras of Luxury so... I could have lived through it just to see Ash on Lapras again.)

Why is everyone bashing on Brock riding an Onix if other people wanted Ash to ride Lapras. It weird that people complain about Brock and Onix, and that Ash should have riden Lapras. Yes I know that Onix has been done to death but still.

Done get me wrong though I am a fan of the Orange Islands saga as well and would have wanted Ash to ride Lapras for old time sake.
 
Who rides what Pokémon... I don't see how it matters that much. Afterall, we'll probably only see five minutes of Pokémon riding.

I'm guessing because Onix (and Steelix) are seen all the time, while Lapras rarely appears...or so I assume.

But I'll admit using Onix, which was basically the most memorable of Brock's Pokemon (oxymoron, I know) is odd, when there are so many other Pokemon they could have Brock ride that he didn't own. Guys like Rapidash, Foretress, or Rhydon.

I shed a tear reading the last part of your post, Koro. To think that Brock's poor Forretress is that forgettable that you'd think that he never even had one...

Although I have to admit that I keep forgetting myself.

I guess that the only memorable thing about Brock's Forretress is that it wasn't memorable. Sometimes I actually thought that Brock himself forgot about it, or at least it had left the cast in episodes that I'd missed- seeing it appear again in the odd Pokemon lunchtime scenarios or a random battle gave me a shock once or twice.

Just a few random thoughts.

My other random thought is that I'm a little uncertain if the comment about Dodrio being a hint for Gary x Dawn was actually serious or not. I find my very will to live draining away at the thought.

OH.

Conway is awesome. He and Tracey should appear together and geek. :<

Wait a minute I just look at the main site and saw that Brock is riding a Feraligator who said he was riding a Lapras

I, for one is not liking mantyke to appear like this. It should have a whole episode to itself. Its that kind of pokemon that deserves a whole lot of attention in an episode.

Do I spy Ash riding a Spoink? How rofl-worthy.
And what is that ostrich-like leg he is looking at? Dodrio?

yeah, a dodrio. Dawns riding it, in case you do not know already. Interesting how both Brock and Dawn are getting all the big, beastly mons while ash is stuck with the cuddlies..
 

Spoinky

becstar xoxo!!
SPOINK =DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD But Ash riding it really doesn't look right. And same with Dawn riding Sharpedo D:

In my opinion though, this arc is probably where they throw in alot of pokemon which they don't have plans for so that they get "screen time"

Wonder what kind of personality that Sharpedo will have when it's ridden by Dawn?

By the way, what would the winning team get? So far Team Red is 2nd. Would they get an item for coming out on top, or just a diploma or something?

This. What in the hell IS this?!

Ash has to weigh, like 80 lbs. There's no WAY that a 2'4" Spoink could support that much extra weight on its... would you tall it a back? ^^;

Not to mention it looks mighty uncomfortable for Ash.

I'd say the back of Spoink, but it'd be less funny.:D

If Ash can hold a 100 lbs Hippopotas on his head, the surely he can ride on a Spoink. =P

Yeah, but Ash has leg support. All Spoink has is its spring tail thingy.
