Lucario just tanked Machamp G max move just because. I think Lucario tooked more recoil damage from Steel beam than being hurt by Machamp G Moves lol.
I like that Bea is hopefully gone now. I hated her as a rival to Ash since it felt like she was the rival simply because he lost to her, not because he needed to prove anything to her. Her not remembering his name was treated more like a joke than an actual point of contention.Damn. People complain a lot.
So what did you guys actually like about this episode?
Now it suddenly learns a move, it cant by leveling up, against Regular Machamp and not Gigantamax Machamp.
Machamp: Bae's main Pokemon. I find it underwhelming imo. I liked the previous episode when it bearhugged Lucario with its 2 arms & punch with the other 2 arms. In this episode its mostly throwing its fists even in Gigantamax form which doesn't last long. A shame really because being familiar with Mortal Kombat, especially Goro, they could have do it more with this 4 armed Pokemon.
Watching Sirfetchd lose with no redemption was rough, especially as Lucario got his from beating Grapploct.
No Pokemon can learn that move naturally. Only through a move tutor. So, it was cheap and really random.Actually not an essay time:
Lucario learning Steel Beam was... I would say unexpected, but it's a gen 8 move so I guess within the realm of possibility.
Why does Ash even have half of his team members if all they do is sit on their tail feathers for months on end, only to show up just to lose? All Sirfetch'd did in the half a year since it evolved was open a letter. This battle was terrible, and it's frustrating how much Journeys manages to irritate me on a regular basis. That's never happened before. Christ, I'm turning into Zoruagible.

And people want to believe that Iris taught Ash's Dragonite her move as she does in the games, unless that happened to be a big coincidence the writers didn't link to.
No matter how cheap, as long as it attracts views.they've been having pokemon learn moves they can't learn through normal means since the early days some moves they aren't even supposed to have at all, so I don't see why that's such a problem now.
Pikachu learning Volt Tackle, a move that requires breeding is cheaper than this honestly.
I know it's a Move Tutor move, but y'know the writers have been doing this for years, so I'm not too concerned.No Pokemon can learn that move naturally. Only through a move tutor. So, it was cheap and really random.
Plot armor thick enough to make battleships jealous i tell ya.Lucario not taking any damage from GMax Machamp's signature move was a little silly, yes, but it was wearing Sirfetch'd and Pikachu's plot armor, so I guess we shouldn't be surprised by that outcome

How did it end? First, Bea finally stated that she would face Satoshi again sometime. Secondly, Bea is still attending the PWC, so there is still a chance that they will have to face each other again.I’m more happy this “rivalry” ended, after all.
That's a death sentence to say that pretty much makes a trainer obsolete to fight ever again unless it's a contest rival, which have gone extinct. At best, Bea has been set up to lose spectacularly against a champion or Raihan in order for Ash to believe they'll be harder to beat than Bea (i.e. the same down to the last Pokemon bout).How did it end?

I can't see how bea would come back... why couldn't Pokémon writers use Bede this time?How did it end? First, Bea finally stated that she would face Satoshi again sometime. Secondly, Bea is still attending the PWC, so there is still a chance that they will have to face each other again.
