    The fifth match in the first stage of the knockout round is Māmane VS Matsurika. And then, believe it or not, a Rocket Gang showdown between Musashi and Kojiro takes place in the sixth match.

    A sneak peak review of match 5 through 8 of the knockout round!
    These will air July 21st!

    Match 5: KUWAGANNON VS ABURIBBON (Māmane VS Matsurika)
    A high speed battle in the air!

    The two fight each other as they fly around in the sky. Kuwagannon has a hard fight on its hands as it takes on the faster Aburibbon's attacks!
    (Blurb: Kuwagannon has a shot if it can stop Aburibbon from moving!)

    Match 6: SONANSU VS HIDOIDE (Musasina VS Dekojiro)
    The outcome is given before the match even starts?!

    Sonansu keeps returning Hidoide's attacks using its specialties "Mirror Coat" and "Counter". Hidoide is extremely determined, but how can it overcome this opponent?!
    (Blurb: The true identities of this suspicious duo is that of a certain twosome! Is the outcome of the match already a given?!)

    A showdown between Ghost types!

    Kaki's Alola Garagara is in deep trouble thanks to the effect of Acerola's Gangar's Ability "Cursed Body"!
    (Blurb: Alola Garagara is made unable to move by "Disable", and Gangar makes it so its Bone Club...)

    Match 8: ALOLA ROKON VS BLACKY (Lilie VS Gladio)
    No holding back! It's Lilie VS Gladio in a sibling showdown!

    Gladio has the clear advantage when it comes to pure ability! Will Lilie be able to show her brother the strength she's gained thus far?
    (Blurb: Lilie and Snowball unleash a fully powered Z-Move! How far can they push Blacky?)

    Oh wow, Jessie and James survived. Go figure. I think Jessie will win and lose in the top 8. I could see Sophocles beating Mina as well. Though that might depend on her second Pokemon

    Well Sophocles vs Mina is also happening so I guess some air battle between Vikavolt and Ribombee may commence.

    Hold on. A competition where in the end 16 people face off against each other out of a slew of a bunch of people? A person named Mina facing off against a yellowed haired guy? Mina confirmed to beat Sophocles like how the MHA Mina defeated Yuga!

    Rocketshipping confirmed!!! Lol, just kidding.

    Anyways, I'm actually excited to see this. I know the writers will probably have Jessie win, but I'd really like to see James pull through for this one. He deserves some spotlight since Jessie has competed in Pokemon Showcases and Contests and has managed to do okay for herself.

    I hope James wins this just because I really like James as a trainer. It could also end in a draw just to not have one look better than the other.
  15. It does not seem fair Mimikyu vs Marinie

    That sucks if kiawie or lilie is eliminated in this round. And with 6/8 confirmed and gladio still in the rest 4 people to battle.... F

    That’d be a pretty cool matchup.

    That just leaves Lillie’s opponent. Least if it’s the Mudbray guy then Snowy would have the advantage, but it’d be cool to see Acerola or Plumeria IMO

    Can we just take a moment to realise that a member of Team Rocket is going make it to the Top 8 of a Pokemon league lmao

    This could mean this round is 1vs1. I was expecting 2 vs 2 at least. Can James use stufful or bewear if it's 2vs2?

    I called this ironically in another thread so this was a surprise. I swear if Bewear comes to get them before the match ends. Also curious on who’ll get the Z Ring. James would have a better use as Mareanie resists Let’s Snuggle Forever

    Could you imagine if Jessie has the Z-Power Ring in this battle which puts James at a disadvantage, and at first Jessie seems to have the upper hand and is winning the battle however just when she thinks she's won and is about to finish James's Mareanie off to win the match, James's Mareanie sheer will power to not lose and to impress James winds up causing it to evolve into Toxapex which leads to the tide of the battle changing to James's favor and he and his newly evolved Toxapex win the match.
