Shooting bugs dead and pretending to be helpless.
I don't understand why Ash doesn't throw balls at legendaries? I understand it's cause of Goh's goal but wouldn't it help Ash more who has to defeat Champions. I fail to understand my idiot buttmonkey Ash.
He apparently doesn't catch anything that doesn't pick an interest on him first.

In-universe explanation:
What, you don't think Ash is friend material? Get out.

Meanwhile Goh:

"Mine! "

(Is it disturbing he actually did say that line.)

Great now Goh casually catches and commands legendary beasts....
I guess people now need to stop complaining about Tobias's Character. At least he seemed way older and far more experienced than Goh lol.

If Goh can capture an Eternatus, almost capture a Zapdos and now capture a Suicune, Tobias's team was definitely fair.

I never had a problem with Tobias outside it was a bit unfair to have someone that strong conveniently participating in the league but its whatever, Sceptile took out his Darkrai, so I'm good.

I think it's fair to say majority of the fanbase hate on Tobias as this unrealistic trainer, refer to him as the action replay hacker etc. At least the guy seemed way more mature, older than Goh and at least had 8 badges (Hence, a lot more battling experience).

Considering the fact that Goh has captured 2 legendaries so far and almost captured 1, I think this really changes how Tobias's character should be looked at and referred to from now on.

OH, now I see what that cut-off text at the top says. It's "The Legendary Pokémon Suicune Battles Alongside Go!"

Interpret that as you wish.
Suicune battles with Goh and then bye bye

ALL HAIL THE GO-VERLORD
The one and only Gohd of this universe. The engineer. Sing his song, SING HIS SONG LOUUUUUUUD!!!!

(There I go once more making obsure refferences no one's gonna get.)

Can we please get the older, old forum back?
Just going to say this: would there be merchandise on Suicune if it's just going to be released at the end of the episode?

Just a thing to think about.

ash's pikachu is most likely a "6 perfect iv" Pokemon. Such a pokemon is as valuable as the legends. So it goes without saying that Ash's pikachu. Sceptile barely defeated Darkrai as the 5th pokemon. And Sceptile is one of Ash's 5 strongest pokemon in my opinion. If Darkrai wasn't tired, he couldn't beat it. There will be exceptions, of course. But what I'm trying to say will not change.

Just saying, a Pikachu with six perfect IVs would still get wrecked by a Latios - so this is a ridiculous argument to make.

You're literally saying Go would be unbeatable. So how can you stick to that argument when you're acknowledging Pikachu's former achievements?! Especially when Electric -> Water, where most of its previous achievements were against pokemon with a defensive type advantage (Koko, Latios).

Sceptile was the 4th, not the 5th. Ash still had Swellow and Pikachu in the back. Heracross did damage, but got wrecked by Dream Eater, restoring Darkrai's HP. Gible did some damage, but not much. Torkoal got insta-wrecked. So without much room to disagree, Sceptile basically had to start from scratch.

Except it would ruin all immersion and believability of the characters if they could destroy everything with such powerful Pokemon. The anime would have officially jumped the shark.

Wait, there was a point where you felt immersion in this anime where the central characters are fictional monsters?

Dafuq? xD

Goh really is a Gary Stu, couldn't they at least let Ash get a singular legendary first? This is just complete and utter bull!
The only trainers who had legendary Pokemon were talented trainers; Brandon owned several and had powerful Pokemon that he presumably raised himself to back them up, Noland was close friends with Articuno but it easily could have been his own had he wanted it, Tobias had an army though he was more of a rather obvious last minute plot device but he still deserved them more than Goh does, Silvally is manmade so Gladion getting it is acceptable especially as Lycanroc was more often shown as an obstacle for Ash than the legendary was.

Only extremely powerful Pokemon like Charizard and Pikachu were capable of beating legendary Pokemon, heck Ash was the only one within the whole damn Sinnoh conference to actually beat a single of Tobias' Pokemon! Legendary Pokemon aren't gods, well some are but it's not like obtaining Latios/Latias or Nebby would make Ash unbeatable, he's in the PWC where the strongest trainers are competiting. Besides Ash isn't the type to turn Tobias and start utilizing a Latios 24/7, and it's not like they'd actually give Ash a Rayquaza/Zygarde so he can lay waste to the champions.

I sincerely hope it's clickbait, Goh doesn't deserve Suicune nor will he ever. People may blame XY for starting the legendary Pokemon looking weak but SM is truly to blame, Kyogre the same legendary who almost drowned the entire world mere weeks prior was threatened by a pathetic group of poachers instead of a movie level villain or utilizing the Matori Matrix

Goh is basically the Pokemon equivalent of Rey if he catches Suicune.

And both characters just happen to have equally annoying fans who bash the old popular characters everyone loves while uplifting the shitty new ones! I have no respect for fans of either

So do you want to take a guess at what Suicune’s move set will be?

fact goh is catching suicune around the same time when legendary beasts are returning to raids in pokemon go
Well, duh. He is the literal manifestation of Pokemon GO (except for some reason his name got an "h" in the West).

We'll see. They've done troll cuts before, remember the Pikachu ep preview?
well Goh's pokedex did register Suicune in the preview, so I think the capture is legit. Plus the magizine scan does show him commanding it or it seems that way.

However, its still unfair, seeing how Ash has not caught a legendary let.

You must be quite gullible if you never considered the option of him releasing it at the end first.
