    Setting A Not So Old Score!

    The contest has begun. Dawn, Jessie & Dawn's childhood friend are all participating. Dawn is completely eager to actually win the contest. However the battles end up being against her Childhood Friend. Despite the fact that they were friends, Dawn gives it her all. Will Piplup defeat the Prinplup?

    I still think Alakazam would have been a smarter choice as the battle Pokemon rather than the appeal, but then the writers wouldn't have gotten their "Vs Higher Form" match-up...

    It likely was tide pool. Poor buneary, ever since Pachirisu was caught it's been in the background not getting any spotlight. Glad Hikari won though.

    Good episode. I'm glad Dawn won and Piplup learnt a new attack (Bubble was getting a bit too boring..), and despite my thoughts on Kengo before watching he actually seems like a good rival for Dawn and I hope he does return. Bit stupid that he didn't use Alakazam to battle, but then again the writers do enjoy the whole underdog pre evolution winning thing.

    As for poor Buneary, it needs to be shown more! What happened to Buneary and Pikachus romance? I really want to see it get more development because so far Piplup and Pachirisu are both 'characters', whilst Buneary is just a plain Pokémon.

    I liked how Jessie used Dustox for a contest battle (lately she has been using James' pokemon and the last contest in AG was with her using Harley's so yeah...) and that she used Seviper earlier for the appeal.

    And I'm really glad that Dawn finally gets her ribbon!! Hopefully we get to see more of Kengo too.

    As for Dawn's Piplup, I'm glad to see it winning, just hope that Buneary will be used next...

    Weav-vile Totally!

    Just saw the pics. Gotta see it in motion now, it's looking really cool.

    About Mimiroru... People seem to have forgotten it was the first pokémon Hikari used for her first contest battle.
    Yeah, it's truth it hasn't battle much lately, but it'll get its time. :cool:

    Exactly. Mimiroru did good in its first contest. Hikari lost in the second contest as well so using Mimiroru or Pochama in that contest would've been stupid. It was a good loss for her because well she was using a NEW captured pokemon who had no experience in contest appeals or battles. Beside Jessie was using Ash's Aipom who has experience in contest and regular battles.

    This was her first ribbon so it makes sense that Pochama did the battling. Pachirisu doing the appeal was also needed just to show its growth from the last contest.

    Hikari still needs 4 more ribbons so Im sure Mimiroru will be used. I'd even say that in the next contest there is good possibility that Mimiroru will be used.

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    This win seperates Dawn from May further, since she actually got her first ribbon with her starter. Looks like a good battle too.

    Poor Jessie though, all that momentum from that unofficial contest and look at where it gets her in the real deal.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    READY, GO!?! When was the last time we heard THAT thing?

    Nowhere near as cheap as Squirtle vs. Ariados or Skitty vs. Dusclops, that's for sure. It wasn't a KO win, but rather Dawn having slightly more points. I honestly enjoyed Piplup vs. Dustox more, though.

    Also, for a Shimura episode, this actually looked...pretty good.

    Well I'm just speaking for myself here, while I know your saying there's always plenty of time for more contests I was more thinking of screentime. Ever since the end of the 1st contest it barely got any screentime and now that pachirisu was caught its been all about it and piplup. That's all I was merely stating. Hopefully buneary evolves eventually.

    As for the "cheap win" it wasn't that bad. However, people crucified May when her Eevee learned shadow ball before the contest even though it was obvious she had been working on it off screen. With Hikari no one has really complained about it when Piplup used tide pool(?).

    Argh, Piplup's standard Water attack was always Bubblebeam, not Bubble. As far as I know it's always been called Bubblebeam in the various episode threads as well. I know I've mentioned this a few times before. Please learn the difference between baboru kousen (Bubblebeam) and awa (Bubble), there's no reason to get them confused.
    As mentioned, sort of, it was Brine.
    Not that any of that "crucifying" of May was justified, because it wasn't, but there is one significant difference here. Piplup's learned move was something it learns naturally anyway, Eevee's was not.

    As I´ve said a few times already, I think that Shimura improved quiet a bit in the DP-anime. The latest Shimura episodes weren´t bland or robotic to me like older shimura ones.



    Kengo´s voice wasn´t as terrible as the trailer suggested. He´s not a Harley, but he isn´t boring either.

    Maybe we´ll see more Hikari-wanking flashback IF he shows up again.

    I can´t help it but feel bad for the poor Musashi...Next time I want to see Habunake to the battle section. It never had a contest battle...
