Like A Meowth To Flame (402)

    Bleh. I'm not that dissappointed about not getting to see any of Satoshi's Kanto team. Although I would like to see Fushigidane or Betabaton again, it's his Johto team that really needed some time in the spotlight. Being overshadowed in the last leage and then not even being allowed to compete in this one at all.. it just sucks.

    In some ways I would like to see Satoshi not do so well in this league for neglecting his underused Johto pokémon *coughHeracrosscough*, but on the other hand I would like to see Heigani kick some serious arse so people will finally shut up about him 'needing' to evolve.

    And not surprisingly the writers missed another chance to do something cool with the show. Although I never thought it would actually happen, this would have been a great time for Satoshi to get his Pijotto or Okorizaru back, since they were screwed over even more than Heracross or Yorunozuku. His other Kanto pokémon aside, if anyone thinks Pijotto and Okorizaru don't deserve more screentime you're an idiot. :p

    Given that Ash wasn't headed back to Pallet town before the Hoenn League, I'd have to say that there wasn't really a chance of him re-encountering pidgeot before his battles begin.

    They could have thought of some way to do it, nobody said Satoshi had to go get Pijotto. Perhaps all the Popo back in that forest are now able to take care of themselves, leaving him free to search for Satoshi on his own. Hell, Lizardon has come back to help Satoshi out three different times, and Satoshi never once set foot back in the Charicific Valley.

    Excuse me guys, but I have to ask you something. At the end of this episode, professor Oak appeared and he talked us a bit about "Pokemon 8". You'll see, in certain moment, I find that professor Oak mentions to... MEWTWO!!. If you have realized it, could you explain to me what he says?. (Of course, if you understand Japanese).

    I didn't hear any mention of Mewtwo.

    Interesting that Ash specifically mentioned Grovyle twice in that conversation. Foreshadowing, perhaps?

    How does Ash usually refer to his entire team anyway? Does he just refer to them as Pokémon-tachi or does he usually refer to it as 'specificpokémon'-tachi?

    About the episode itself, I personally found it to be rather boring. It was a fairly decent introduction to the new rival character, but apart from that, there weren't any moments that really stood out. Personally, I think the episode featuring Sneasel way back did a better job than this one *shrugs*

    Heh, it was amusing to see James crossdressing again though XP And the Meowth in boots was incredibly cool.

    As far as I know, Ash usually says either "Pikachu-tachi" or "Pokemon-tachi". This is of course subject to correction.

    I don't understand, the significance of the tachi (team) suffix-thing... Anyway, the stadium looks cool! I wonder how people are going to get to the island; will spectators fly there? If so, where will they stay? Too bad I just posted a fic mentioning the place-I might have to change it. :) Btw, what's Ash's 6th pokemon going to be? I'm really wondering...I really hope Ash wins this time-this is his thrid league, excluding the (For ex. Orange) islands and tiny competitions. He probablly has more exp than anyone else. Say hows that stuff with the Japanese voice actor for Gary comming along? If a new rival for Ash was introduced, then I guess theres a lower chance of an old rival comming back, meaning theres still trouble with the actor, huh?

    ...What is there to understand? There is NO GOOD REASON for Ash to have used Grovyle as the focus point when refering to his team. (Grovyle-tachi.) Pikachu-tachi, yes. Because Pikachu was his first Pokemon, and the 'Ring Leader'. Pokemon-tachi, also yes. For obvious reasons.

    But Grovyle-tachi? Why him? It's not like Grovyle is some form of Special Pokemon, or anything. Just one of his five Houen Pokemon. Why not Torkaol-tachi, or Swellow-tachi? Doesn't it make you wonder just a LITTLE bit? >.>

    Edit: Just seen the episode. Tetsuya is a frikking Mary Sue. Liked by everyone, gets to carry the League Flame, has strong Uber Pokemom... >.> Oh, and that Meowth. I dislike it. A lot. :p Especially after the way it acted all cocky and crap.

    If this has been answered already, then I apologise... by why exactly was the meowth sporting boots, a hat and a scarf?

    yeah I was hoping to see meowth pwning the boots meowth...poor rocket kitty...he never gets what he deserves...I dislike the boot meowth a lot,too....
    I´m hoping Ash will win against this guy..he is a little boring ( too nice too normal) and his pokemon don´t impress me either ( I hate metagross with passion). I hope he has at least a few cooler ones in his lineup...but masamune ( who is hated here for no good reason IMO, a problem with his fatness? -.-) is a better rival

    Very simple really! :)

    Here's all that has to occur together:

    Upcoming 6-on-6 match.

    Previous battle one pokemon got beat up very badly and can't battle for several days./A certain thing happened (Like what happened to Kingler when he was about to battle Macey.) and it's too injured to battle for a while.

    Said Pokemon won't be ready in time for the 6-on-6 match.

    Upcoming 6-on-6 match, Ash has a very tough opponent, that requires all 6 for him to have a chance at winning.

    ------------

    Enough said. :)

    So I would say that it's best we don't celebrate just yet. I too want to see Ash use only his Houen pokemon, but I have enough common sense to think of all the possiblities.

    Trust me, there's still a chance we could lose such a bet.

    So if you ask me, we'd better not celebrate until it's all over. :)

    Does anyone else think that when Ash gets around to battling Tetsuya that they'll have a Meowth VS Pikachu showdown? They both know Iron Tail and Thunderbolt, it could happen :p

    I think Tetsuya is sexy! I love him and Masamune, why does everyone hate them so much!?

    Because Tetsuya is a bland character who the writers created for the sole reason of having Ash lose to him in the league.

    He's a carbon copy of Harrison. The only thing that makes him interesting is his Pokemon. Take those away and you're left with some bland trainer who's only purpose is to beat Ash and lose to his next match in the league.

    When this is the sole purpose of this characters existance, it's pretty pathetic.

    At least Masamune is FUNNY, he's the one everyone gets to make fun of and laugh at because he's amusing, like Corphish.
