Technically no. Chimchar was there and had the type advantage so that’s not the fully detailed story. Considering the anime loves deciding when that makes sense this probably was the very few situations
He could G Max Gengar in this episode but I think he could use G Max against Cynthia and uses Pikachu’s Z move against Steven’s MetagrossPseudos don't mean squat in the anime universe. We've seen a Turtwig take out a Metagross.
Ash uses Dynamax/G-Max in the first preview. He's like going to G-Max Gengar in this battle. However, I think it will be utilized like the Raihan battle with Metagross taking it out and Pikachu probably getting the win against Metagross as it wouldn't make sense for Pikachu to lose here and then be used against a much stronger ace (And maybe even get a win) later down the line.
Also, Cynthia is unlikely to use 2 water types.
The anime has never really considered pseudo legendaries to be stronger than regular pokemon.
Seriously? You're going to argue with a "Type advantage point" lolTechnically no. Chimchar was there and had the type advantage so that’s not the fully story. Considering the anime loves deciding when that makes sense this probably was the very few situations
Pseudo Legendary is a fan made term, so of course the anime won’t use that term to outright say that these Pokémon are stronger than others. But those Pokémon have always been portrayed as a much stronger species than regular Pokémon - eg Alain’s, Paul‘s and Tyson‘s Metagross, Ash’s and Iris’ Dragonite, Cynthia’s and Paul’s Garchomp etc.The anime has never really considered pseudo legendaries to be stronger than regular pokemon.
Generally, Legendary Pokemon are shown 1 step above regular pokemon and special legendaries (Mewtwo, Rayquaza etc) are shown much stronger than champion tier trainers.
You're basically looking at the Main characters. All Pokemon owned by them will always be stronger than the average pokemonPseudo Legendary is a fan made term, so of course the anime won’t use that term to outright say that these Pokémon are stronger than others. But those Pokémon have always been portrayed as a much stronger species than regular Pokémon - eg Alain’s, Paul‘s and Tyson‘s Metagross, Ash’s and Iris’ Dragonite, Cynthia’s and Paul’s Garchomp etc.
And Legendary/Mythical Pokémon are nearly always shown to be much stronger than regular Pokémon. We saw what Moltres did to Ash‘s Sinnoh Ace, or how Tobias swept through Sinnoh with just a Darkrai.
Seriously? You're going to argue with a "Type advantage point" lol
I mean they went out of their way in BW to show that Dragonite was by far the strongest Pokémon in the entire cast until Charizard arrived, and Alain’s Metagross was the only other Pokémon besides Charizard he used up until Ash, and it was the first Pokémon that dominated Peakachu like that. According to your logic, the likes of Iris’ Emolga or Alain‘s Unfeazant would also have to be on that level, because they too belong to a main character - but that isn’t the case. Using the MCs aces to prove me wrong is also invalid. Ace Pokémon are obviously an exception, that’s why I explicitly said they pseudos are stronger than regular Pokémon. Additionally, Tyson is definitely not a MC, and his Metagross dominated Ash’s team, and not any of his 5 5 Mons. Goh is also not a valid argument, his entire shtick is catching Pokémon, not defeating powerful trainers. And the Heatran trainer was in a grand total of one frame, it might as well belong to Tobias, which would make sense.You're basically looking at the Main characters. All Pokemon owned by them will always be stronger than the average pokemon
Pokemon of Main characters of Alain, Ash, Iris etc are always stronger. It has nothing to do with the pokemon being a pseudo legendary.
1) Ash's Lucario is shown as stronger than Dragonite.
2) Alain's Charizard is shown as stronger than Metagross. Plus, Alain's Metagross. was never really shown strong. It was at max shown relative to Ash's Kalos team which is why we see Pikachu wreck both his "Pseudo Legendaries" Forcing Alain to bring out Charizard.
Did you also forget about Ash's Goodra getting taken out by Bisharp?
3) Iris's Haxorus is shown stronger than Dragonite.
The simple fact is that, game stats don't mean squat in the anime universe. If a trainer is strong, all his pokemon will be shown as strong. Irrespective of whether they are pre-evolved or a "pseduo legendary" or whatever they are.
No. Regular Legendary/Mythicals are not shown to be "Much stronger always". We see Goh/Gary defeat and capture Regieleki/Regidrago. We've seen Ash defeat a lot of legendaries in the past. We've also seen Goh fight Zapdos. The list goes on. As for your point about "Tobias", did you forget about the other trainer with "Heatran" in the Sinnoh League who didn't even make it to the semi-finals?
The Pokemon that are always shown as substantially stronger are the special legendaries like Mewtwo and Rayquaza.
He could G Max Gengar in this episode but I think he could use G Max against Cynthia and uses Pikachu’s Z move against Steven’s Metagross
I would like that too, but the opening is teasing that Ash is going to Mega evolve Lucarioi'd personally rather he wait till he gets to Leon before firing that off.
Because it would really help cement him being Alola's champion more by using their regions gimmick against the world monarch.

Can't help it if you're stupid enough to get the implication of the comment.
Despite the fact that Paul there had fully evolved Pokemon like Torterra and Ash had something a more experienced Pikachu, yet they resorted to use first stage evolutions CLEARLY IMPLIES that the WRITERS DO NOT CONSIDER "PSEUDO LEGENDARIES" to be all that species.
Yes, there was a Zangoose which prompted Paul to also use Chimchar, however, the writers had absolutely no issue include a "PSEUDO LEGENDARY" into a battle with 2 pre-evolutions. They could have had the random trainer even use a Beldum, Metang or literally any other steel/psychic type.
But no, they added a Metagross in there. Plus, even in Journey's we see Team rocket use a random Pseudo Legendary (Tyranitar) from the Gatcha machine.
So you're gonna argue type advantages mattered because of a silly line that was said? There are multiple lines stated in the anime where people talk about type advantages making a difference and there are just as many instances where the type advantages are completely ignored. The massive inconsistency Clearly suggests that type advantages don't mean squat.
So maybe you should think about what you say before insulting someone else. Can't help if you're stupid enough to look at things from a broader perspective and have a narrow minded good for nothing view like most of your comments on this forum.
Somehow leak dumpster fire conversations are less of a dumpster fire than whatever the hell is happening in the preview threads so yes (stealing this meme tho)
I wouldn't be surprised if a lost wild Axew appeared around Wyndon and Goh catches itAny changes to the OP that we know of?
Since this is Goh, it is more possible there will be a wild Dialga around Wyndon and he throws a ball and catches itI wouldn't be surprised if a lost wild Axew appeared around Wyndon and Goh catches it
