Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita (716)

Discussion in 'Pokémon Black & White - Rival Destinies' started by Serebii, Nov 10, 2011.

    Seeing Scraggy's and Axew's brotherly relationship with each other makes me smile, but because of that I'm not sure I'm going to look forward to when it gets closer to the end of the generation, we might be in for some tear jerking moments. :(

    (I shouldn't need to elaborate on why right?...)

    No summary thing this week since my computer crashed between me typing it up and pasting it over here. I'll be damned if I'm retyping that ****.


    That said, highlights of the ep were:
    -Axew's nightmare. Why does it see Cilan in his sorcerer outfit with a higher-than-normal voice while everyone else is normal(except for Gothita, but its deep voice was probably just to make it seem scarier)?
    -Koharu learning nothing. She gets bossed around by her Gothita, and there's never any point where anyone points out to her that this is bad. I seriously kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but nope.
    -Scraggy not getting what the hell was going on. It wasn't paying attention during the initial "Ash, give me your Scraggy!" scene, when Gothita lured it away it was just going "YAY FOOD", and...well, really now.
    -Koharu has summer Deerling! Does this mean the end of pink Deerling for now?
    -Snivy doing its thing is always a treat. Always.

    Awww...

    Koharu and Gothita were annoying...

    Aww. I was waiting for it ;-;

    But this episode was great anyway. The Scraggy and Axew friendship was really nice, and I'm glad they're giving them some development. And yay Tranquill's alive.

    That's was my first thought when I first saw her. ^^

    No! Leave Emonga out of this. It doesn't need to be there if a crazy Gothita is already there.

    Nothing of the like has happened in Best Wishes though, and admit it, Gothita vs. Emolga does sound pretty entertaining.

    Emonga doesn't need anymore development though. Maybe have some other Pokemon do that.

    I watched it again and wow I really loved all the scenes where Gothita gets owned.

    ~ Upon finding out Ash has two more badges than Koharu.
    ~ Upon being denied a battle for Scraggy.
    ~ When she gets Dragon Raged by Axew in the face.
    ~ When she gets repeatedly hit by Garbodor.
    ~ When she gets whipped by Snivy across the butt.
    ~ When Snivy counters all her moves.
    ~ When Snivy snuffs her after the battle.

    I really dislike Gothita that seeing her not get her way was hilarious. Scraggy is just like Ash... oblivious to love...

    Cilan rambling on about the Nimbasa Subway was hilarious.
    Gothita's butch voice in Axew's nightmare was also hilarious.

    Thanks to this episode I now like Scraggy even more due to his very adorable friendship with Axew- even Snivy was smiling at those two bond.

    Scraggy wasn't so oblivious in the Cottonee Episode. I think it's just that Scraggy just didn't give a crap about Gothita so he didn't pay much attention to her.

    Edit: I will admit that Scraggy is oblivious to being taken away though.

    When I watched this, I thought it was kind of like the episode after Iris catches Emolga "Emolga and the New Volt Switch".

    It made me upset that Tranquil didn't eat with everyone else, and also that she's only ever used for searches. Tranquil deserves a good battle!

    I also liked Snivy being amazing... as usual!!

    Mr. Reloaded At this point, who knows?

    Basically this episode is like a tribute to ash's glalie except gothia acts like a spoiled brat where glalie (Back when it was a snorunt.) It kinda had playful nature for a second but got too much involved to the point where you get the idea its coming back which in this case I hope she returns like in about 10-15 episodes with gothia evolved and having a rematch. So this episode is basically a pass because for 1 this episode has a lot of comedy to it which is good next it kinda gave development to scraggy's Hi Jump kick which was kinda epic though he missed when he battled gothia overall pretty funny episode I hope she's not a Character of the day cause that would be a funny character wasted.

    Finished watching the episode. I enjoyed it.

    Garbodor sounded alright. It was funny when it got hit with Aromatherapy.

    Scraggy and Axew have a good relationship with each other, it's nice seeing them friendly with each other. It's also nice to see their battles will begin to get more serious and be actual battles now.

    Koharu was interesting, as well as Gothita. Wouldn't mind seeing them again. Was nice seeing a Mandibuzz battle under the ownership of someone.

    Axew has weird dreams haha.

    Snivy was cool.

    Overall, enjoyable.

    Why does the girl only have two badges compared to everyone else? I hope she doesn't end up showing up again. The writers are really laid back with these recrurring characters. At least give the girl four badges!

    Ash only has two more then her, and she's going for her third in Nimbasa which isn't too far. Bianca only has three last we seen. And Trip has five since the writers want Ash's main rival to always be a step ahead.

    Why the heck does she need four badges?!
     
  18. Caseydia

    Because Ash has four. Duh! If you're going to make them rivals, at least make their accomplishments sort of equal.
     
  19. Juputoru

    Juputoru M-m-m-m-onobear?!

    I don't think the idea was to make her a rival. She really screamed "character of the day" to me(especially since she literally has no personality beyond "bends to Gothita's every whim"). Then again, so did Kenyan...but how many more rivals can Ash get, anyway?

    Surely not many! Trip, Bianca, Stephan. Three is enough for the major rivals in my book. An appearance by Koharu at the Unova league would remind me of Conway's run. Not entirely identical obviously, as we had no idea that Conway was collecting Gym Badges, but a seemingly innocuous character appearing at the league and providing a stiff opponent would be similar.
