People learn from their mistakes.

...Sometimes.

...Or they forget 'em.

After all, it's been like, what, 2 hours since Ash last fought Surge?

Yes but during those two hours, Pikachu has learned Iron Tail and Electro Web.

Very different than say Thundershock/Thunder or agility or whatever moves it used in the previous fight.

I just hope that Pisces doesn't do something stupid and we actually get to see electrode battle outside of using self destruct or explosion

Why do people think that Pisces would do something like that? Considering that Pisces is basically meant to be Matis's second in command, I find it hard to believe that Pisces wouldn't know that Ghost-types are immune to Normal-type attacks.

Pretty sure everyone who’s mentioning that is joking. Don’t see why people keep taking it seriously

It doesn’t seem unrealistic to expect a drill sergeant character whose theme is based around warfare to have a bomb Pokémon use its grenade-inspired gimmick?

But against a Pokemon it would have no effect on? It would only make sense if Electrode was up against Pikachu in the first round
 
Please don't let her use Explosion on Gengar and she ends up knocking herself out.

...Then again, she's number 1000 or the lowest rank, right.

What are the chances of new opening sequences with Scorbunny evolving and leaving?

The rank doesn't work in that way.

The Normal Class ranks 1000 onwards. The Normal Class has likely an indefinite number of people.

The person in the rank 1000 of Pokemon World Championship would have the best position in the Normal Class.

So, like, if he ascends to rank 500, the one at rank 500 is the top one despite there being a rank 101.

Basically here is the breakdown of the classes:

Normal Class: 1000 and below
Super Class: 100-999
Hyper Class: 9-99
Master Class: 1-8 (aka Top 8)

Also here is a breakdown of the highest rank you can be in each class before you move up to the next class:

Normal Class: 1000
Super Class: 100
Hyper Class: 9
Master Class: 1 (aka World Champion)

It works this way because it seems like anyone can sign up for the World Championship, but it's going to have to start at Normal Class (and probably at the bottom of it).

Normal Class has likely an indefinite amount of people (whose rank 1000 onwards).



It’s almost 1:1 to the actual games’ ranking system.

I always thought tiers in a numbered ranking system were stupid. The only difference between number 100 and number 99 is that number 100 didn’t rank up to the next tier. It just makes things confusing for no reason.
In the anime, the Master Class has a function, since the 8 members will have a tournament for the World Champion title at the end of the season.
