The Great Eight Fate! (387)

Wow Sootopolis city looked great, just like in the games. Juan was an interesting gym leader with his water show, plus I liked the idea of a 5 vs 5 gym battle. Grovyle getting hit by Luvdisc's Sweet Kiss at the end was hilarious. :D
 
I know that Juan was a champion coordinator but honestly, he has to have better things to do than impress people with Water Gun. Still, the battle was awesome.

Err, Juan was Emerald's last Gym Leader, so that's why he was the Gym Leader here too.
Yep and I personally didn't mind Juan's gym leader role myself, although I wish we could've seen Wallace make a cameo here via flashback or something hee hee. :3
 
Juan being a Coordinator and winning the Grand Festival was a nice way to tie him into both Ash and May's goals, I guess. Too bad he didn't battle May here. :x

What made me enjoy this episode the most was seeing how the animators did Rune City justice by making it resemble its in-game counterpart. I thought Adan's performance was amazing, and I was intrigued that his Gym looked like a mansion. Pikachu and Heigani versus Todoggler and Azumaou was a fun match, too.

One thing that made this Gym match spectacular was the creative liberties that the writers took with the Rune Gym's battle structure. The fact that they added a segment for a Double Battle made this Gym seem much more invigorating from my viewpoint.

I was glad to see that the writers showed restraint on the jokes this time around with Juan. I was afraid he'd become all flamboyant like James. I loved Jessie's Don Juan comment.

Adan's mannerisms made me respect him since he was such an elegant gentleman, although I still would've preferred seeing Mikuri as the Rune Gym Leader here.
 
Sootopolis City looked so glamorous and we were introduced to Juan, whose showmanship and skill as a fancy battler out-shined anything Misty or her sisters could ever give us in terms of Water type specialists. I liked how this was also another chance to go outside the standard 3-on-3 battles. We get instead not only a 5-on-5, but it started off with a 2-on-2 battle.
