Killer idea! I love how if anyone's the star, it's gonna be Pikachu for this episode without Satoshi being a sitting duck and getting to show off what makes him great.
Also Mikurage isn't done yet either, just when he thought he made a comeback with his ace his momentum gets smacked. The strategy with Iron Tail-Stone Edge and Countershield almost did it but Destiny Bond(?) takes the rat with it. That's Satoshi's top 3 losing in the beginning of PM#123 ironcally enough (1 - Pikachu, Kairyu - 2, Gengar - 3)
Fun episode, I really want to see subs for dialogue and lore.
