    Sinnoh League Semi-Final! Darkrai Appears!

    It's the semi-final of the Sinnoh League and Ash has learned that he is facing Takuto. Takuto has got through all of the gyms and the league using just one Pokémon; Darkrai with no losses. Will Ash manage to defeat Darkrai and Takuto, or will Ash be facing his nightmares and lose the league?

    Ash's Sceptile defeated Darkrai after Heracross, Torkoal and Gible all got OHKOED. It was then swiftly defeated by latios which also pwned his swellow. Pikachu up now. The hat is back.

    Both Pikachu and Latios are down. Takuto won. :(

    Seems as if Paul was watching. He was not amused. :p

    I'll be honest I didn't expect to see Latios at all. But *sigh* really writers, Swellow?

    Ash lost 6-2, this was a DRAW. The best battle EVER, in my opinion.

    Pikachu Vs. Latios ends in a draw. Ash loses the match. Takuto doesn't seem evil or anything, but using two legendaries? Cheap.

    I wonder who Takuto's starter pokemon was, Arceus?

    Ash had no chance.

    Pikachu & Latios double KO. So that means the winner was Takuto.

    A most exhilarating battle.

    I was so shocked to see Darkrai go down that early. And by my boy Sceptile. Can't doubt his power.

    It was a Hoenn-packed final showdown. Latios outta no where...

    10/10, despite the briefness.

    Wow. He had a Latios. :/
    I can only imagine the rest of his team

    Anyways, I admit I was wrong, I thought it was going to be a clean sweep. Way to go Sceptile.

    UGH, Hoenn pokemon take over the Sinnoh League. Now I'll remember the Sinnoh League as Hoenn getting the last battle. Disappointed that Sceptile took Darkrai too, and Ash's 6th pokemon was Swellow. Poor Totodile, Bayleef, Muk, Kingler, Glalie. All could of used the battle. Oh well, last few minutes of the episode were good though. What did Brock say in his head?

    The hell? Latios now? I mean, seriously? :/

    Swellow was a bit...unexpected, but Pikachu's final strike was just plain epic! :D

    Sceptile was ownage as usual. Overall, t'would have been a good battle if Takuto didn't have access to like, every damn legendary ever.

    Of course, Ash turning his hat backwards voids every complaint against this episode.

    Sceptile is officially up there with Charizard. Taking out an undefeated DARKRAI!?! And Pikachu tying with a Latios is pretty impressive too. Even if it's really brief, I'd love to see Takuto VS Cynthia- if anybody can take out Garchomp, it's him.

    I stayed awake somehow. Here we go ...

    - Hard to believe this Opening will only play two more times ...
    - The changing fields are back. Grass Field first.
    - Guess what Pokemon Takato starts off with?
    - Ash leads with Heracross.
    - Dark Void makes Heracross fall like a rock.
    - Heracross starts talking in its sleep.
    - Darkrai makes it have a nightmare. Down it goes.
    - Torkoal's up next.
    - Torkoal is overpowered right off the bat. NO REDEMPTION FOR YOU.
    - Even Pikachu's worried at this point.
    - Next vict - combatant. Gible.
    - At least Gible lands a hit.
    - Gibles fast but Darkai's faster. Gible's KO'd.
    - Dude, isn't it boring to win all the time?
    - Next up. Sceptile.
    - It's like Darkai only has Ice Beam to deal with Sceptile.
    - BREAK. We see Sceptile isn't doing so hot in the break animation.
    - And we're back. Another Brock eyecatch.
    - Sceptile's feeling bad after that Ice Beam.
    - To add insult to injury Darkai puts it to sleep.
    - Sceptile struggles a bit, but then wakes up!
    - Huh? HE DID IT!
    - Yeah. The crowd goes wild.
    - Next up ... Latios? Are you kidding me?
    - Ash keeps Sceptile in. That's probably a mistake.
    - Yep. Mistake. Latios slams into it and ends it.
    - Next up. Swellow for an Air Battle.
    - Swellow is nailed and goes down.
    - Ash is shaken after Swellow goes down.
    - Then he sends out Pikachu.
    - Ash should really stop trying to attack the thing head-on.
    - Pikachu jumps on its back and shocks it.
    - Latios can't quite shake it.
    - Latios flies high and loses Pikachu.
    - Ash, somehow uses Pikachu falling 100 feet to its advantage.
    - The resulting explosion kills the video feed.
    - It ends with a draw between Latios and Pikachu.
    - Needless to say Takato defeats his next opponent to become League Champion.
    - An odd amount of focus was put on Brock at the end.
    - Barry is nice enough to say his very rushed goodbyes before running off.

    I have to say this battle was pretty exciting. That was a nice surprise towards the end.

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    Imagine the wtf moment everybody had when LATIOS of all things came out of that pokeball... It's friggin Animé debut! But the battle was good.. Pikachu put up a good fight, and now is the only pokemon of Ash to beat two legendaries..

    Only point of remark is that Ash should've saved Gible for later, and that Pikachu shouldn't have bluntly go straight into those Giga Impacts.. What was it thinking???

    Horrible ending to a great saga. Right when I think the series is going to end on a lighter note, Ash takes a beating and barely manages to take out Takuto's Darkrai and Latios. I was even more disappointed by how Takuto won the final battle of the League with just Darkrai and didn't even break a sweat. I mean, what was that? Suddenly we get this crazyly powerful guy who wins battles with Legendary Pokemon and doesn't seem fazed by anything? I don't know, Sinnoh seems to have had a hollow ending now that everything is done with. 3/10, only because Ash beat some Legendaries....

    People were so hyped about Ash's last pokemon....and the surprise came in the form of Takuto's second pokeomon. Still couldn't expect for a better result. Two legendaries in a row....Ash must be over the world.

    Seriously who is this Takuto guy? I do hope he remains in the show. I wanna know more about him.

    Also, was any part of the final match shown?

    This battle was way out of proprtion. Was there any astonishment on Takuto's face after witnessing Darkrai and Latios go down?
