    Why are people complaining about pignite getting a bone tossed to him when the only thing that ever happens in a snivy ep is glorifying that arrogant Pokemon and mijumaru somehow makes himself the star in episodes that he had no reason to b in.

    I'd preferred if that bone was evolution instead of DEM at play.

    I mean, it's just sad the likes of bubbly Bianca can reach the last stage in less that twenty episodes while Ash struggles several dozens of episodes without success. I WANT EMBOAR BEAR HUGGING ASH.

    I honestly don't see how Pignite beating Golurk was DEM, considering:

    1. It wasn't a battle.
    2. Pignite is part fighting therefore would reasonably have super strength more so than a non fighting type Pokemon of Pignite's size.
    3. It doesn't matter in the end.

    So a Judo throw is now "dem"? he used Golurk momentum against him, I want him to evolve but it was pretty damn cool how he did win.

    It's a pretty significant bone compared to the rest of the Unova team, sans Pikachu and maybe Krookodile.

    I guess so.

    But, you know, Fighting-type & normal physical attacks don't work on Ghosts so... Oh, anime logic. Never mind. I did like the cheap win anyway.

    He didn't use any move, I didn't mean he used a move, I said he used judo basicly.

    At least he evolved once. No excuse for his mijumaru and snivy who he has owned and until recently used more to still not evolve. Honestly if the games didnt exist I'd say people would think Pokemon would be better off unevolved based off the show.

    Its not that significant considering his "wins" were like 2 minutes of action.

    Pignite has already proved himself in the past imo, which is why I didn't think he deserved this particular victory. I mean to be completely honest the battle was really disappointing because Pignite won in like five seconds flat. It was too one-sided. And like I said before, a behemoth like Golurk should have been able to withstand Pignite's toss easily. I just felt underwhelmed by the whole thing.

    Pignite was terribly defeated by a Serperior in the Junior Cup, so I think it deserved a tournament win.

    Your opinion is just as biased as any other user.

    DEM? Pignite was shown to have massive physical strength consistently since it evolved. It took on Dawn's Mamoswine head on in the episdes before the Junior Cup arc. Besides he didn't completely throw Golurk's weight. He simply used Golurk's momentum and tossed it away. It was quick thinking on Ash's part. Not a DEM.

    Very good point. Not to mention a certain dragon pokemon that took two strong ice types down, a garden hose that took everything else down and not to mention a certain Pikachu who has had the most underserved wins in the entire series.

    Ursaring and Beartic fighting made this episode for me. Reference to real life ftw

    Dragonite against a Beartic that isn't Georgia's?

    Seriously, this is such an odd occurrence. You'd think it was the perfect time to have her appear out of nowhere and fuel the shippers with ideas.

    Yea, buy rhyperior is rock/ground, having both a strength defensively and offensively. It is very slow, bit you would think it could withstand a few punches.

    Probably my favorite episode of DA, they managed to balance Alexa and the Sumo tournament without either feeling too rushed (maybe could've gone a little longer on the final round).

    I find it bewildering and disheartening that the powers-that-be running the tournament are utterly unfazed and unaffected by TR being blasted off. There is no penalty to Golurk nor is there any concern or search for the contestants just sent flying across the horizon.

    ^my only thoughts about the episode.
