I couldn't agree more... yeah, I did find some good aspects, but there was just so much going wrong here.As for me and this idiotic gym battle. The only thing good about it was Leavanny getting a win. But it was definitely better than Nimbasa's gym.
Was not worthy of being the 8th gym. To make matters even worse, ONLY Pikachu was in the end with "I got the toxic Badge"
I can never stop watching Pokemon Anime (as if I have anything else to watch). But the idiocy and problems of best wishes was obvious here.
I'd say the writers should be ashamed of themselves, but the only thing they care about is their next paycheck.
No, they we're "badly poisoned." In the games badly poisoned drains HP faster, but I guess it's crippling in the anime.Didn't the poisoned pokémon look they were paralyzed? People should stop whinning about everything, things would be so much easier if people just relax and accept things just the way they are
Ew. I didn't like that Pignite defeated Homika's Scolipede so easily, but I'm not surprised that nobody is complaining about it; everyone and their parents stan for Pignite. But this points to Pignite being the powerhouse of Ash's team; I guess there's no reason for Oshawott to evolve now. Anyway, I loved that Iris was cheering for Ash so enthusiastically, even if it was for her own reasons. It seems Palpitoad wasn't dead after all, but the fact that it was overwhelmed by Garbodor was ridiculous; the writers just love trolling that thing. It was a good Gym battle all around, and I'm glad it's over since the speculation was getting too overwhelming imo.
Wasn't it Hyper Beam that cut through?Honestly, it was obvious to me that Pignite struggled in this battle too! It was poisoned, and got his win due to fire pledge. This was not an easy win at all. I think the battle with Garbodor also showed that fire pledge isn't the all mighty move ever since Venoshock went through it. That battle was pretty epic IMO. Palpitoad's was okay, but I just wished that one of the move would have connected at least. Also, I kind of feel that if it were just 3 vs. 3 with Leavanny, Pignite, and Pikachu Ash would have won. Sure Unfezant and Boldore got some good hits in, and Palpitoad might have took some energy from Garbordor after fighting it. But, I do feel that the results would have been the same!
Also, I think this battle (and I hope this battle) showed Ash that he needs to work on his reserves more!
Agreeing with you. People take this show far, far too seriously (myself included at times).I really think people are too fixated at counting the wins each Pokemon gets. Let's say Pignite beating Scolipede and doing so well against Garbodor was the first time you've ever seen it in action. You'd probably think it was cool, had good animation, that sure is a strong Pokemon and such. But then you realize that this Pokemon has actually *GASP* BEATEN STUFF BEFORE!? THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS!! Sure, if Pikachu beat more than one, THEN it'd just be plain annoying, but this shouldn't be so bad, at least only one of Ash Pokes went down without really doing anything and he has already definitely proven himself before.
That's probably how I'd rank them as well, if only because they were pretty exciting and more balancedMy List of gyms from favorite to least favorite
Half were good and the other half were bad.
Dont you think it makes Ash look even worse when he ends up winning on the mirage of a luck-based ability? I think having only old moves and showing Ash and his team refining those old strategies (on moves and movement alone) is training.I was very disappointed that there were no new moves, and that the only special ability shown was Pikachu's static.
Sis, you're tripping. Almost everyone here loves BW. They treat it with reverence, like it's the second coming of Christ. But anyway, I'm just shocked that some people are complaining about Pignite's easy victory against Scolipede, mostly because these are the exact same people who claim that he's one of the strongest Pokemon on Ash's team. Either people changed their minds about it overnight, or they're just looking for something to complain about.I do think that Best Wishes has only managed to be better than Johto, but I don't think I've ever seen people happy around here. :|
Well, the green static after the first Energy Ball was Energy Ball's secondary effect, Dogasu/coughing's SP.Def was lowered; Dento even made note of it as usual.I was very disappointed that there were no new moves, and that the only special ability shown was Pikachu's static.
Thank you, that is certantly a releif to me. These episodes are not perfect in my eyes, but I'm still glad the writters didn't break every rule in this episode.Nope no Slam. Serebii is sometimes incorrect in some moves in the pokemon's bios.
While I commend you use of almost to prevent a generalization, I'm pretty sure BW isn't as loved as it may seem. I certantly see plenty of post that discuss this saga's flaws and imperfections. It doesn't help that we live in a world where if someone isn't happy and content with a subject then they have to GTFO. As for Pignite, I'm sure not all of them are flip floppers of oppinions; this fandom is huge, so it is foolish to think everyone is in agreement on any one subject. I believe that its more likely that people who always had issues with Pignite are just stepping out of the woodworks because they now have an example to explain their view. People who don't have Pignite problems are just staying quiet or acting positive to their own views. It is also possible that just because a person loves how strong Pignite is does not mean the person has to love every battle it participates in.Sis, you're tripping. Almost everyone here loves BW. They treat it with reverence, like it's the second coming of Christ. But anyway, I'm just shocked that some people are complaining about Pignite's easy victory against Scolipede, mostly because these are the exact same people who claim that he's one of the strongest Pokemon on Ash's team.

She was having too easy of a time, with her prior 3 vs 3 matches.Quetion, is this the first time any gym leader has used only three pokemon while Ash used all of his six? It sounds interesting but if i was Ash i wouldn't have been happy since she gave him an advantage. He still has a long way to go.
