    No. The injury didn't stop her from doing anything, but Aria was able to get more votes.


    eDIT: OMG, Serena went after Yashio

    DoriDori was amazing. Looking forward to the dub ruining that moment with a random background music...

    If i'm not mistaken, they didn't show how many votes she got, they just said she won.

    actaully it did, its half of Aria votes
  15. So I only had audio for this episode sadly, but Dori Dori sounded amazing. I also expected Serena to lose and it seems it wasn't because of injury thank God. Once I'm able to actually see the visual part of the episode I'll comment more about it.

    So basically:

    Yashio will take Serena under her wing at the end of XY. So it is 100% confirmed Serena is not staying for next gen.

    I think the point of the injury was to show how she went from being the girl who would give up at the first moment she could, like her mother said in XY053, to the girl now who doesn't stop even when she's hurt. Also that injury allowed her to get closer to Yashio who's going to become her mentor once the XYZ saga is over.

    Yeah, she made a giant flower using her pokemons moves, she used Sylveon's fairy wind as a trampoline and she made a circle of fire using Braixen's stick. There were some similarities, but nothing too big, at least in my opinion, especially considering that the choreography was extremely different..

    Had to watch it in action. Just magnificent where I was hoping she would've won even if I knew she would lose as per tradition yet I'm glad she expected to have lost and did so gracefully without shedding a single tear and managing to find consolation in earning the respect from Palermo. I felt all these Disney princess vibes, particularly Snow White, from Aria's performance in sync with her trio of Pokemon where I could understand why Serena was astounded by it.

    Really I have to say this was a satisfying conclusion and while I'm disappointed with how much more could've been built up prior with her rivals since I wanted to see more of them I was still touched by the good byes said at the end. Though if they do come back as recurring characters for any Serena episodes after the Master Class I'd be happy for them to expand upon goals after the showcases to possibly give Serena a b plot on figuring out more on what else to do aside from performing since they'll have to wait a year or whatever til the next chance to claim the title. Nothing that overshadows Team Flare or Ash's league yet enough that makes us wonder what will happen to her before Sun & Moon comes out aside from the obvious Palermo tutelage and all.

    Gotta say that I was impressed that Jessie wasn't throwing a diva fit as she would back in Sinnoh. That Team Rocket Nakama moment was just feels galore and matched the level of OS with how they were close. Guess its back to try to steal COTD/POTD Pokemon while attempting to interfere with Team Flare. I'm still hoping they get a powerhouse or two since the last battle was absolute curb stomp. That and if Giovanni really wants to step up his game for Zygarde and Mega Evolution he should send in more operatives such as Butch and Cassidy to bring them back to their OS beloved status along with more of TRio's original personality which should flare up with their rival duo.
