The Eighth Wonder of the Sinnoh World! (647)

    Gym-style battle and contest-style battle are two different approaches of battling. Consider this scenario: Drew beat Ash, May beat Drew, therefore, shouldn't May be able to beat Ash by using simple logic? No, May tied with Ash. So clearly, there is no definite sequence in these kind of battles.

    Anyway, back on topic. Luxray was already weakened by Pikachu. I don't see why Infernape needed Blaze - besides vandalizing Volkner's gym as well - to beat Luxray. That, and Ash pulled a win against Volkner out of the blue when Volkner was undefeated since he became the gym leader. If they don't illustrate how cheap the battle is, and Infernape's win against Luxray/Jolteon aren't forced, I don't know what is.

    How it turned out was how they wrote it. They could've wrote that Pikachu beat Electivire, Torterra beat Jolteon and in a long battle wish Ash having an "ah-ha!" moment, Infernape beat Luxray. It's just the writing.

    We don't know for sure either what would have happened or how the match would have turned out if the lights hadn't gone off. Just because how they wrote it doesn't mean writing materials can't be cheap. I'd go on and give you some examples from the league, but I'm feeling a bit irresolute to talk about it.

    Glad that Ash won although Infernape won it for him. Im so glad Infernape activated Blaze that was just so epic and hopefully now it can show Paul just what he is made of at the Sinnoh league. Cannot wait for the sinnoh league episodes. Oh and Team Rocket were funny as well loved the curly hair

    Well, pretty cool ep. The battle wasn't all that good but it was nice, I just loved how Infernape activated its blaze ability, it was so badass, Luxray was pwned hard alright. Though I didn't like it that Torterra was defeated so easily, the writers could've atleast made it last a bit longer, its match just ended way too soon IMO -.- I was also quite disappointed that Pikachu didn't win a single gym 4 Ash in Sinnoh but atleast it finally beated one of the Ele's line

    Didn't Pikachu also beat Roark's Onix during their rematch, and Crasher Wake's Gyarados?

    Dammit... time is going too fast & I'm getting lazier by the second...

    So it looks like everyone has heard the word out on the street, & because of that, there's a line out the door of the Sunyshore Gym, but Ash gets first crack at him.

    All in all, the gym fight was great, especially the fact that Infernape finally got his berzerker's rage that comes with its Blaze ability under control. Even though he won, it was far from flawless, which has me doubting that he has spent his excess amouny of time prior to this fight wisely...

    The battle was pretty cool, but I hate how Torterra was KO'ed in one hit.

    I liked the gym battle. I know Ash ended up winnin with blaze, but at least Infernape did not lose control of it. Infernape used it to its advantage this time.

    The battle between Luxray and Infernape was so amazing. After blaze was activated Infernape just crushed Luxray like a bug. It couldn't do anything to Infernape

    I agree, it was a great battle! Infernape was shown to be a great powerhouse pokemon in Sinnoh! Thats why I am such a Huge fan of him!

    1.) *sarcastically* Gee, I wonder where we've seen that before?
    2.) Yeah, I kind of expected him to use his Raichu as well.

    I kind of got an idea that they could make Rock Climb a ground-type move in a future Pokemon game.

    Say what?
    In Diamond/Pearl Volkner has an Octillery on his team? But Octillery's a water type isn't it?

    Yeah, what was up with that?

    I agree! that scene was epic and scary!
    As soon as I saw Infernape's glowing red eyes I was like O___O!
    His voice in that state was just freaky beyond belief!
    I was pretty sure Ash was was done for when Infernape as walking toward him like that!
    Awesome to see that Infernape FINALLY has his blaze ability under control. Look out Paul, there's one bad*** demon-spawn monkey heading your way! Watch out!

    Onwards to the Sinnoh League!

    This episode was very cool. It was great that Infernape finally Mastered its Blaze ability and had it under control. Torterra didn't do very well against Electivire's Ice Punch and Fire Punch attacks. It was great to see Pikacu finally take down an Electivre, this time with an Iron Tail attack to the head. Pikachu really got knocked out easily by Luxray who is really strong. It was cool to see Infernape defeat Jolteon with a Mach Punch attack. It was awesome to see Infernape knock out Luxray with an extremely powerful Flame Wheel. I'm glad Ash finally won his 8th and Final Badge. It was cool to see Thunder Fang for the 1st time.

    Ah yes, Ash finally gets his eighth badge against Mr. Emo. :p Sorry, but I've never really liked Volkner.

    Awesome episode! Really great, fun battle to watch. It was so heartwarming when Infernape managed to stay calm even with Blaze - the hug with Ash when they won was adorable, it made me feel really proud of Infernape and what he's accomplished. So excited for the League now!
     
  18. Pretty epic battle especially when the power goes out and Infernapes blaze was activated. It was pretty awesome on how the rest of the battle went after that. 10/10

    Agreed. At least one of the gyms should have been taken away from it so that Pikachu or Staraptor could have starred. Perhaps if this was a 4 on 4 battle with Pikachu, Torterra and Infernape getting the wins, with Gible being the fall guy would have worked. Raichu could have been the 4th pokemon that Torterra takes down, without having to include a pikachu vs Raichu battle.

    Volkner using Jolteon was a strange choice. He should've used his Raichu since that was his 1st and likely strongest Pokemon. Alas Infernape was savage. 6.5/10
