I hope the gym leaders take part in the world tournament with updated teams if the old ones will take part on it why not them(knows hes being off-topic pardon me).Shame Homika will probably not be this powerful in her gym in the games. Hopefully there will be a way to have a more powerful rematch with her.
I see where you're coming from, but it could've been worse.. Remembers a certain skipped episode that involved male cleavage...My word...Iris and Cilan doing stuff with their faces not shown...Cilan saying stuff about amazing taste...and Cilan's hands doing what they were doing...I...wha...but they...have they always made out when Ash was battling D: Seriously, who was in charge of that scene did they not know how subjective that scene was, my mind may be dirty but it's hard not to think of dirty things with that scene...
The referee was awesome...that is all I have to say about that...I just loved his voice and how he said some English here and there(Ok I had more to say).
I enjoyed the episode overall now that I know what was being said. Enjoyed the battles and whatnot.
You sir, are a ray of hope for me that there are actually people who enjoy the show without complaining. The point of the show is to be enjoyable and fun to watch. I see that people are giving ranks for gym battles, counting wins and what not. They all seem to forget enjoying, which I do not recommend. If you have actually enjoyed the battle instead of counting wins you'll notice that this battle was good. Especially Boldore v/s Koffing and Unefezant v/s Koffing. All I see is 8 pages of posts of people complaining about Pignite again and again. The number of posts that said 'This particular scene was good.' is very low. I think the hardcore fans(those who regularly post in the Anime Spoiler and Episode Discussion section) should recheck their views in handling the subject and try to see the positives over negatives. People get mad because they expect an evolution out of nowhere and it doesn't happen. Instead if you watch with minimal speculation you'll actually enjoy it. I think Palpitoad situation is a good example.(I seriously don't know how they expected a evolution, it wasn't hinted anywhere. Besides they don't realise that Palpitoad evolving in this episode would have only make things look worse )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.
It was the whole point of this gym battle.Bad episode. 3 vs 6 just showed how weak he is. If it was me, I would insisted 3 vs 3.
If I lost, I will keep training and become very strong until I beat her. It just showed Satoshi is very weak very weak.
A lot of gym battles are better than this.
Not really, the point was to overhype Homika as a last gym leader when she is the second ingame.It was the whole point of this gym battle.
To show that Ash isn't strong enough, hence the whole Eastern Unova arc.
Seriously? You'd rather take that explanation and not the one that makes sense?Not really, the point was to overhype Homika as a last gym leader when she is the second ingame.
Yeah, the same two episodes where Ash's Pokémon dropped like flies leading Ash himself to start doubting his team.They passed the entire two episodes talking about how highleveled/strong her pokemon were and how her poison tatics where awesome, etc.
What doesn't make sense in the explanation I gave? they did overhype her the entire episode from start to end.Seriously? You'd rather take that explanation and not the one that makes sense?
I get that they wanted to promote Homika as an awesome character, but there was much more to these episodes than that.

If anything, 6 v 3 served both ways:
- It demonstrated Homika's strength and character.
- It showed that Ash still isn't fully ready.
