Yamazaki also worked on 130, which had some great animation, so that's a good omen (I hope they get the guy who animated Oak vs Hau to make a cut or two).Looking at the episodes Rena Yamazaki's been an animation director in (eps 69, 75, 86, 96, 108 and 118) and the few cuts I could find that they're presumed to have done for other material https://www.sakugabooru.com/post?tags=rena_yamazaki this episode should be good animation wise, it's also been 20 eps since their last one so they've had plenty of time to put into this one.
It's not exactly much different from a Pokemon that happens to have Protean, or Color Change.I'd say there is a huge difference, Z-move and Mega Evolution are things trainers and pokemon go into battle pre-equipped with, and if Silvally entered the battle pre-equipped with a drive I wouldn't see it as cheating, but to me equipping Silvally in the middle of a fight right when an attack is coming in like with what happened against Turtonator, imo is blatant cheating regardless if it is the pokemon's "gimmick" because it could've very well fallen to that attack, but was saved by something I guarantee Gladion would not get away with outside of alola.
As long as Zoroark goes down I don't care how the rest of the fight goes, I do not want this fight's outcome decided by external factors.
Gladion is sending himself out in battle? That's not a twist anyone saw coming.It's pretty funny tbh. Many fanfics involving a big Ash vs Gladion fight always revolves around Gladion being the big trump card that always goes in the end. I was honestly hoping that the same would happen for this fight, since Silvally has had some of the biggest portrayal in this Gen. But a dog fight sounds pretty badass as well!
Most of them really are, considering 6v6 battles tend to be 3 OHKOs or 2HKOs and 3 drawn-out fights....the heck kind of finals are a 3v3
I really think that Ash is going to win the league this time. Between Ash having an established rivalry with Masked Royal and the upcoming Gen 8 anime saga being a reboot, there's no way he can lose this time.
Just one that consistently loses. Which, you know, doesn't actually apply to Melmetal since it will likely only have one battle, and jobbers have to lose consistently.Has the gen 8 anime been "confirmed" to be a reboot?
Also, what is a jobber? Is it a Pokemon that loses in a league or one that has consistently lost battles even outside of the league?
Didn't it get KO'd (or, at least super-stunned) with, like, the entire Ultra Guardians group by an attack from Necrozma in Poipole's world? I think it was the start of SM090.This will be the first time Silvally got defeated. Champion Ash or Champion Gladion, sounds strange right?
I think somewhere in the battle gladion will switch zoroark with lycanroc same as ash as he switches pikachu with his lycanroc. I think this time dusk lycanroc will win but lose to zoroark and since zoroark was mohn's Pokemon it might be more powerful than gladion expects it to be and win the battle for gladion what you think?

While I'd have preferred it if Melmetal got to fight and beat Zoroark, from how things are going now, I want Pikachu to beat both Silvally and Zoroark, if this is truly Ash's league win, Pikachu should carry some good weight (though IMO, after Zoroark is revealed, they should swap out Pikachu and Zoroark for the doggo showdown). Now that I think of it, has there been any previous battle where both aces have been KO'd early?
