Kaleido Star FOREVER in my heart <3
What did Alain do to these writers?????? He didn’t deserve this. Horrible
My point still stands. Oh my bad, a portion of Ancient Power and Dragon Pulse. It really doesn’t change anything lmao
At this point I don’t even trust that bracket. It’s clear they’re gonna do anything for shock value or the complete opposite of what’s expected as part of the story even if it’s completely random
Yeah like, 1 and 1 quarter lmao. He was 2 shotted in an incredibly underwhelming fashion and the awful+rushed choreography doesn’t help either It changes the fact that he was not OHKOd. He took multiple hits.
I'm just saying, false narratives kill discussion, so I'd like discussion of this battle to be grounded in what actually happened.
Not defending anything apart from that.
Is Leon's Charizard stronger than a Groudon or was Groudon just weak all along, think about it. Stay woke.Apparently Leon's Charizard's Dragon Pulse is stronger than Primal Groudon's Precipice Blades. (Sheesh on that one).
First she sees Alain job and then her fans forget her name what a dayHer name is Mairin...
They kind of forced themselves into that position by making it the Master 8 from the very start and having Leon be included in those 8 slotsExactly. Why do we need to see him crashing our loved characters like that? Cruel
Don't forget the Dragon Ascent from Mega RayquazaSo the Alain that held his own against Steven and proceeded to continue getting stronger training for the Kalos League and would logically be stronger right now gets one shot by Leon’s base Charizard? The same Charizard that took a super effective Land’s Wrath from fcking Zygarde?
AgreedIt’s one thing to present a character as the strongest, it’s another to basically have them fodderise to the point where it’s downright stupid. It seems the writers are going so out of their way to present Leon as invincible this episode to the disservice of Alain lmao, like MCX putting up a really good fight against base Charizard would’ve been plausible and also still make Leon look strong as he isn’t using any mechanic, even Flint put up a better fight,
add to the awful animation and pacing which Journeys as a whole has had an issue with for most of the series and you get: Trash that’s worse than Drake’s new album that released today. I really liked the interactions with Iris, the nod of acknowledgement with Alain, TR was okay, that’s all the positives I can say for this episode.
Precisely. Hop should've been a Project Mew member. Alain should've battled Ash in the Hyper Class and Gary should've been part of the Master Class.Hop being introduced this late into the series was just completely wasted potential as well, he could’ve very well been a Project Mew member from the get-go to reflect him eventually wanting to study Pokémon or hell even one of Ash’s rivals but alas, that would be too much to expect from a messy series like Journeys
The problem with this is that, someone else would've taken Leon's place (Most likely Cynthia), during the tournament.Leon is already established as the strongest, why did the writers find it necessary to put him in the M8 in the first place?
They should have:
1) Kept Leon as the Champion defending his title, waiting at the top for someone to reach him
2) Replaced Leon's spot with a more interesting candidate
3) Let Ash fight Alain instead because that actually make some narrative sense and would be more enjoyable probably
Leon is the new Tobis, only with a horrible hairstyle and two pantsThey kind of forced themselves into that position by making it the Master 8 from the very start and having Leon be included in those 8 slots
They should have just made Leon a rank higher (so basically a champion/king type rank instead of rank 1) and they are holding a Master 8 tournament with the top 8 and whoever wins gets that right to challenge
Similar to Tobias steamrolling all competition to be a credible threat when Ash reaches him back in Sinnoh they are now forced to have Leon steamroll his way though everyone since he's meant to be the final hurdle, so yeah, omitting him (just like in the games btw) and have it be a tournament to earn the right to challenge him for his title would have been a better choice then his now obvious easy wins
