Mission: Defeat Your Rival! (765)

Grr, I'm a bit disappointed in the battle between Ash and Trip. For Pikachu to take so many hits and then just comeback with a single combo was bs. And I didn't know Bianca's Emboar was female until now. :p

I found it funny with Cilan said he was amazed by Ash's creativity. Ash vs. Trip was complete bull. Pikachu was on the verge of getting KO'd the entire match, and Pikachu still somehow not only survives, but takes out Serperior in one hit.

For Satoshi's final battle against Shooti, I must say that I was expecting a much more climactic ending than watching Jalorda versus Pikachu. At the very least, I would've liked a full six-on-six match.
I thought that Serperior vs Pikachu was meant to be symbolic since it was the long awaited rematch between them. After the way Snivy beat Pikachu, Pikachu needed payback ha ha. A full battle would've been cool tho if the pace was better.

I can comprehend how Jalorda versus Pikachu was symbolic, but this was Satoshi's last match against Shooti, so a full six on six match would've settled things better.

Didn't like the episode. Serperior squeezing Pikachu was brutal, and the combo move taking the former in one hit felt cheap. They could at least have Static activate to power up Electro Ball. I wish Ash vs Trip was a full battle, though, since we never got to see if his Pokemon (excluding Serperior and Conkeldurr) fully evolved. Bianca vs Cameron wasn't that good, either. I was hoping to see Emboar use Wild Charge/Grass Knot against Samurott, but it never happened. I felt sorry for Oshawott when Pikachu zapped him.
4/10

Did Bel's Enbuoh even know those attacks? Because even if it did, I doubt that the type advantage would've changed the battle's outcome seeing as Kotetsu had plot armor on his side.

They could have easily showcase Emboar with these moves to demonstrate Bianca isn't that weak of a Trainer.

I suppose so, but then again she was always portrayed as a weakling in BW, so her match here ended up being what we all expected.
