Cynical optimist
Honestly not sure if I care who wins this battle... I found Bea annoying and the octopus is uuuugly, so I don't really want them to win again, but Riolu is getting annoying and unless he evolves, id rather him just get pummeled again, and then evolve in a third battle. Is there a third option of Chuck deciding to send out Poliwrath and taking them both down? That'd be fun

Love when the mods can’t do their jobs properly

I don’t mind Bea or Grapploct but at the same I wouldn’t mind watching Poliwrath take them both down due to Riolu lol

Can we please get the older, old forum back?
What if they tied? I'm curious how the PWC system would handle a tie.
Maybe it'll turn the battle into a 2vs2? Overtime? It'll get problematic once it's a full battle, but what are the odds of a full battle ending in a tie. :p

In the anime, sure, Pyrce was more interesting than all of the other Johto Gym Leaders but in the games he's just as bland as everyone else. I only like Chuck for a meme lol
I see that you didn't get the joke then.

...I don't think there's a whole lot of white men named Shijima over in Osaka.
This is probably true, but in risk of being called a racist, might I say that Shijima might just be perceived by the general western audience as being 'white', especially combined with the name Chuck (with which the western audience would be more familiar) suggesting a link to perceived perennial white bad-ass Chuck Norris. I should've written 'Chuck's perceived as' in my original post. My bad..

Both will probably just keep their current ranking
Nah i dont think so. Like if ash ties with someone who is above him , ranking should indicate that he is atleast as strong as the other, or the other has become weaker. So if they tie techincally bea's rank should fall a little and ash's should rise up.
 

DuquÊ?

Too lazy to pick a pic
Can someone from normal class fight against a super class without rank up? If not, Ash sure went back to super class really fast.

What if they tied? I'm curious how the PWC system would handle a tie.
I think that could be something like shared points? You don't actually lose the fight, but whatever is your rank take a beat or get better from that. Since that breaks Bea's poker face, it's fine to me.

Though a tie with a higher ranked trainer means lower ranked trainer should gain some ranks since its much bigger feat for him not losing to a trainer who is ranked much higher to him, though i dont know how will this work in anime.

Lets hope that Ash and Chuck remember that they have met and battled each other before.
Considering they made flashbacks and heavily referenced Ash's fight with Lt Surge when he was only fighting the substitute Gym leader, now that he's actually meeting Chuck again in person, there's no way they'll avoid mentioning it at all.
I don't know if we'll get a flashback like with Surge, but I'm at least expecting Chuck and Ash to recognize each other and for Chuck to tell Bea that Ash has defeated him in the past.

Considering Korrina who has a way more significant bond with Ash, with a way more memorable battle that was way more recent, didn't get any flashbacks, don't expect to see any of Ash and Chuck's mediocre little kerffufle from nearly 20 years ago. I expect verbal acknowledgement and nothing more

The Dragon / "Dog"
(Or maybe it's just that he's probably the least interesting gym leader in the entire franchise? tbh I'd go with that theory)
He just adds to the poor reception to "Fighting-type Gym Leaders Extravaganza" lately with his blandness, so...

(Honestly, I wished Maylene returned. Now there's a good developed Fighting-type Gym Leader.)

Yeah, good point. I also only expect the mention that they fought before and Ash won and that's it. Which is totally fine. I'm all for any kind of continuity really.

Damn I didn't know Nobuaki Kakuda is an actual (retired) karateka and kickboxer, man looks stronger than his character lmao. Assuming he'll be reprising the role maybe that's at least partly why they wanted to bring Chuck back, has that celeb cameo appeal (might also explain why he only had one episode in the original series, though of course there were other one off gym leaders back then, like most of Kanto's).

So... Bea's going after every Fighting-type gym leader, huh?

Well, it's nice to get a callback to Chuck of all people. Makes me hopeful that we'll see plenty of cameos of characters from previous series.

In the meantime, I'm going to ignore the saltiness of other fans and just be happy to see Bea in the anime again. :)

Though I wonder if Dan Green will reprise the role in the dub. Probably not though.
