As someone who picked them on his over 1000 hours Y playthrough, I agree.Only real heroes of the Kalos Region have the famed lizard and hedgehog combo:
Not a bad theory.Just a fun thought that I wanted to share.
My head canon likes to believe that Alain is a version of Calem who unmaliciously went rogue. Both are associated with Professor Sycamore, have black hair, a similar hair style, and close enough eye colors and facial structures.
Calem also owns a Chesnaught and Charizard X in the Adventures manga, which I tend to pass off as part of his canon team.
Chespin may have actually been Alain's original starter pokémon give to him by Sycamore as it was suggested that he already had trainer experience prior to owning a Charmander, and maybe also why he took such a fondness to Mairin and her Chespin as they reminded him of himself.
- Alain chose the best Kalos starter, just saying.
I'd say nearly zero.What are the odds Alain sticks around after his loss, interacts with Ash properly and maybe even provides some advice?
That would make things kinda better, I hope?
If only Greninja had known about this!Bruv Dragon Pulse is Mega Charizard's biggest enemy
Greninja actually tanked two, another from Sawyer's Sceptile in one of their battles, and iIrc never managed to dodge one.Greninja even tanked one from the Altaria in Ash’s first match in the Kalos League.
Maybe Greninja really was superior from the start. We just didn’t realize it LMAO
Hell I know I would if I lost like that.
I couldn't care less about amour or shipping in a show that I'm in for the multiple monsters interacting with humans and throwing it down, I just want to see a character that the show has made me legitimately like with this episode interact with the protagonist after the show tried slamming into my face through the course of an entire series that they have a nice bond, that's all, and it's no different from me wanting to see characters like the Masters 8 interacting with Ash instead of filling a rushed battle in what should be an episode about introducing these characters properly.Really sad this is what y’all wanna focus on when the episode lovingly focused on her growth, just shows how Amour is the only thing that matters to a lot of her fans
Considering that the battles were meant to be one-shot sketches, I presume the original episode was meant to be champions interacting before we see a glimpse of the battle.Hell I know I would if I lost like that.
Anyway after watching with subs, I’d say all the stuff with Alan and the battle is still trash but the first half I quite liked seeing the interactions and stuff, Iris was a delight and the selfie was adorable. It’s almost like this should’ve been two separate episodes or something, 5/10
i was also glad to see a Chesnaught get some decent representation even if it isn't my favorite. i love when fully evolved starter pokemon are shown to be effective. Still waiting for a decent Typhlosion to show up in the main series and you are right about Samurott and a "decent" trainer lol.Well, if anything, I guess this episode treated Chesnaught with more respect than the entirety of XY. So congradulations writers, you actually gave my favorite Kalos starter decent treatment. Now if only you can do the same to Samurott (aka make his trainer awesome), and you'll need to work extra extra hard on that considering that Hisuian Samurott is still on my mind, and I still haven't forgiven Gamefreak for making an alternate form of my favorite Unova starter a lazy recolor where, besides the color, the things that are different put me off of it.
MCX's secret is that it resists every move except Dragon Pulse; that is its only real weakness.
That, and it only does super-effective damage against non-Charizard foes.
Or Ash should’ve used Goodra against Charizard
