    So Dragonite wins when not listening to Iris, but loses when it listens to her? What type of message are the staff sending?

    Dragonite loses because it has not fully adapted to being an obedient Pokemon. It has to adapt to working as partners with Iris instead of doing what it wants.

    When it fights as it likes and loses its temper, it goes crazy and starts rampaging. It can be difficult to stop it, but it can be also difficult to control it.

    It's pretty simple if you think about it. Also, friendly reminder that last time Dragonite went crazy and didn't listen to Iris, it lost to Ash's Krookodile.

    Hard work hardly works?

    But pretty ridiculous it hasn't won anything after listening to Iris.

    What part of 'it has not fully adapted' do you find difficult to grasp?

    I still wish it won against something after it beat Dawn. Maybe if Serena gets a special we can see a battle between the two where Dragonite finally gets another win. but we all know that the battle will be left unfinished since it's a battle involving Serena

    Nothing. It is still ridiculous it never won anything after that. Sure, it's justified, but surely they could have won something beyond smacking TR.

    Since Serena is popular while Iris is unpopular, they would probably pull a DEM to make the former win...

    Or maybe if Serena wins in a battle against Iris, it would be following the tradition of current Pokegirl beats previous Pokegirl. Popularity had nothing to do with Dawn beating May or Iris beating Dawn.

    I just watched it and I liked it, even though I am not a fan of Iris.

    Dragonite lost but it had a moment of disobedience. However, Clair is strong. But Iris did a good battle. Let's not forget Clair is already a Dragon Master and has more experience than Iris.

    I didn't quite understand why Gible was biting stuff. I know a Skarmory carried it to the city, but I was watching with Spanish subtitles (a language I don't speak but can sometimes understand).

    I also liked Iris' Ho-Oh moment with Rayquaza. I wish we could see her and Zinnia with the Legendary dragon.

    Overall, I rate it 8/10.

    I suppose that when we take Ibuki's immense skill into account (which was displayed when she previously fought Satoshi), her defeating Iris was realistic enough. I was more disappointed that the match came down to Ibuki's new Shiny Crimgan versus Iris's Kairyu, instead of Ibuki finishing things with Hakuryu, which was her main Pokemon.
