    So, Ash combined the pose of 'Kamehameha' and 'Genki-dama' in his "10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt" and managed to defeat Tapu Koko and its "Guardian of Alola".

    And in the end, "Gao"/"Roarie" still failed to beat the "Move King"/"Move Kahuna"... But he, and Tapu Koko, still looked very satisfied though...

    Thank god Ash actually got to beat everyone he lost to this time.

    Ash still should have been the one to use Tapu-nium though, not the Alolan Stu

  11. I'm s0 happy I'm crying
  12. That turned into DBZ at the end there.

    Just as Goku calls upon everyone's energy for the Spirit Bomb, Ash remembered all the battles he had in Alola and called upon all the power in Alola. Not literally, of course. He felt as one with the region, which is the ultimate state of mind for someone who has passed all the Grand Trials, and that gave him the power to topple even a Guardian.

    If that doesn't solidify Ash as undoubtedly the strongest trainer in Alola, I don't know what does.

    Also Kukui giving him a head pat and telling him he's the best was adorable. I'm gonna miss Daddy Kukui.

    Pikachu really is impressive here... Tapu Koko barely damaged him prior to the Z clash...

    Ash won? Ash beat an in game regional champ? He won a league and a regional champ? ........ Feels so weird lol.

    Episode ended sooner than I expected, which kinda sucks. But other than that, yeah this episode was god-tier good. Ash beating Kukui is the icing on the cake for this league, even though it wasn't perfect.

    And of course it was the Tapu who helped Ash and Kukui get the ability to use Z-Moves one last time for the battle. Some people had a feeling Rotom would be involved, but no.

    Now the question is, where does Ash go from here in these last two episodes? He seems a bit unsure of himself in the preview. And it looks like we're saying goodbye to Naganadel...
  16. Yeah man Ash seems sad. He's accomplished everything he could have in Alola. Maybe now its time for him to leave and he's becoming sad upon the thought of leaving Alola as he has had so much fun here.

    Sun&Moon absolutely does it again, as expected.

    This was such a rewarding series to follow and there was too much to love about this penultimate fight, guess this means my boy is the true champ of the entire affair without a fact. Everything mattered in this region and everything paid off.

    I'm still interested seeing Prof. Kukui's 6th... Hopefully, it will be shown in the next episode...

    Naganadel vs Tapu Koko was absolutely insane, I wouldn't go as far as to say it was the best part of the episode but just wow. I'm certain this is one of the highest forms of Pikachu we've seen, maybe DP is better by a little but Ash literally just showed why he deserves the champion title. Incineroar is REALLY BIG in the opening sequence final shot now, poor Rowlet has been pushed into Melmetals stomach hole to fit everyone in the shot!

    Did they at least explain how Ash is able to do that Z-Move or not?
