I also have a doubt that ash would sweep Guzma, a sweep that this stage would be to anti-climatic and very disappointing imo, what’s the point of it?Torracat will not be sweeping against Guzma, the writers are going to have Ash send out his second Pokémon to make the battle more interesting and Pikachu will be the one that he uses. If you learned nothing from the battle against Hapu, Ash will always send out the same Pokémon that pretty much got beat or close to being beat against an opponent that he has faced before. This battle against Guzma will set up Pikachu coming in and getting redemption against an opponent that poisoned and almost knocked him out. If it was a one v one then Pikachu would have been used over Torracat just for the same reason, but because the summary for this episode teased at Torracat being used that is how I knew it was going to be a 2 v 2 because it’s all about paying attention to not only the entire series, but paying attention to Ash’s character and what he will do in battles.
I say that Torracat gives Golisopod a rough time and it decides to get lazy and return to its ball before some real damage happens being indifferent to the battle that’s taking place..
Guzma goes mental and loses his cool and Scizor gets beaten badly because of the massive type disadvantage and the fact that he wasn’t ready or expecting to use it, as he thinks that he can use 1 Pokémon to win the battle..
The fact that he can’t run away like he did from the Kahunas, actually having to figure out how he’s gonna beat Ash who has been causing him problems as his battling style doesn’t work like it did against Lana..
Torracat loses to Golisopod and Pikachu finishes the job and gets its revenge for what happened to it at the Pokémon school and Ash advances to the finals as expected, this battle finally exposes Guzma as a fraud who picks on weak trainers!
I mean come on, you weren’t expecting that the writers were gonna forget that the yellow rodent only has only been used in the Battle Royale stage of this whole league and they weren’t gonna let it not shine in such an important match, you know considering the fact that it is the series mascot..
