    True... but I never understood why rivals other then Paul always got these free pass battles. I mentioned Paul because he did struggle against Roark

    Have you not read a single post made in this thread? The battles were totally rushed... Ferrothorn OHKO Jellicent with a single Thunderbolt (which got affected by Curse Body)

    Also about Curse Body... told you guys in the preview thread that it's totally inconsistent on how it works

    Seems like a split decision on Samurott's debut... I personality didn't think anything special of it and it's moveset was simply atrocious (3 Water moves...really?) but I didn't flat out hate it. I'd like to know why the people who thought it was bad*** feel that way?

    Shneak this is a Nessa x Sonia stan account ✨

    I noticed that. It's annoying, but I think it was redeemed with Mantine. Like I said, I need to see it, and we needed time for bonding anyway.

    At first I disliked samurott, but to me samurott at least differed himself from empoleon (which I felt like oshawott and dewott didn't do so well when black and white first came out.), so it was okay. (Still much prefered serperior. XD)

    then I frucking saw its pokedex 3D sprite move...being a badass. i gained a respect the day I saw him pull that sword like thing out. XD (also is an awesome way to use razor shell.)

    as for this episode...soudns like fun, but short. I want a longer battle for once... and he totally was being smart and sacking his jellicent to get rid of the ferrothorn that would totally wall and kill his mantine with thunderbolt.

    Razor Shell, Aqua Jet and a special Water move...dayumn Ash and Marlon, stop copying me. No, seriously, I used those moves on Samurott with Revenge/Ice Beam/Megahorn both times I've picked Oshawott in a play through(in competitive one would only use 2 physicals(Razor Shell/Water Fall + Aqua Jet or 1 special though) and it works. There's more to moves than type, each 3 have different uses. Geez people.
    Anyway, Samurott was pretty boss. Hopefully it's popularity is increased enough in Japan so Ash could have one after the league when Kotetsu will most likely be gone for good. I'll do with Dewott too though.

    I like Kotetsu's pokemon but I found the Gym battle underwhelming

    Great episode! Kotetsu is cool, the gym battle was great. The battle didn't need to cover the whole episode, the bond between Ash and Kotetsu was needed so I don't get why people complain it was rushed. It was 50/50.

    Oh man I wish Ash could get a Samurott but that's not happening..

    OMG OMG...

    I laughed. Iris called both Ash and Kotetsu kids...and then both him and Kotetsu were humming Mezase Pokemon Master. X3 After BW ends I'd totally like to see Kotetsu come back again...

    Kotetsu's eyes are so pretty. xDD

    Kotetsu you're supposed to search in your hair like Natsuya did for his styler.

    Aw Kotetsu? Where are you at in times? You have to geocache like Dento does. XD

    Oh gawd. -_- They can't work a compass?

    Hmm there's a lot of changes in music lol.

    PFFT. Kotetsu's silly.

    Hmm new evolution theme...

    Hahaha Dento and Iris sound bored. xD

    I don't think Dento and Iris's brains can comprehend anything. They were like so..."Uuuuh" towards Marlon. xDD

    LOL Riolu.

    D'aaaw it's Mr. Pringles. :3

    LLOL Dento and Iris...simultaneous fall. XDDD

    Eh? Ferrothorn can learn Thunderbolt? O.e

    omg Mr. Pringles o.o;

    Ferrothorn looked possessed. xD

    Hmm I thnk riolu is afraid to battle. :/


    It's a coincidence when Samurott says "Dai, Dai" it sounds like it's dying.

    I see several people comparing Kotetsu to Ritchie, for the sole reason of him being quite similar to Ash..

    To me, that doesn't make sense since the only reason Ash and Ritchie were so alike was because they shared several Pokemon lines. If anything, i'd say he's kind of like a mix of Morrison and Barry, personality wise. I like him..

    It was really fun watching Samurott in a full-fledged battle. And it can actually stand on its hind legs....cool is cool!

    Also now we have frenzy plant on Trip's Serperior, Hydro-cannon on Kotetsu's Samurott. Please Ash evolve pignite and make Emboar learn Blast burn. i don't want Bianca's Emboar to debut BB

    Was the only one that said to themselves, after watching that gym battle: "The theme song is longer than this."

    Maybe I'll watch the dub version of this when it comes out (like next year) and see if I like it then. I've got nothing against subbed, but I wanna see the dub version

    Also, it's super hard to believe... but Burgundy is in sole possession of the most diverse movepool of the Oshawott family.

    Yeah,that would've been funny.

    Poor Burgundy...she's like the voice of the audiences[us],always frustrated with characters that don't train their pkmn and still win.

    I absolutely loved this episode. I already watched it properly and the bonding part (aka the first 10 minutes) are the most amazing scenes I have seen lately in Best Wishes. I really like this new rival and it gave me hope about this saga because I was starting to find it really boring to watch. Oh and the battle was ok... A little bit rushed but ok.

    I think it would be better to give up on that dream of Ash's starters getting to use the elemental beams. He had like 4 fully evolved starters in the anime until now (Charizard, Sceptile, Torterra and Infernape). But none have learned those moves yet.
    In fact when Sceptile returned for the Sinnoh League he used Leaf Storm as its new move. The writer could have easily given it Frenzy Plant, but no they didn't.

    I think since Frenzy Plant and Hydro Cannon are considered to be the powerful attacks in the anime, i guess that writers have decided to not give those moves to Ash's starters, since they most likely believe that it would make Ash's starter pokemons more powerful. So, the moves got reserved for the Rivals or so random COTD.

    So, most likely it would be Bianca's Emboar who would debut that move in the anime. And if she doesn't, then it would be someone else, but not Ash's starter pokemons.
