Because they wanted base Garchomp to lose to Mega Lucario and just thought about anything. Togekiss did nothingI'm sorry but I can't get over Cynthia's dynamax strategy being to use Dai Jet three times in a row, only for none of them to work.
Just bad writing.That finale. Man, talk about a fight to the brutal finish. It goes to show just how much of an accomplishment Ash has a achieved when Lucario went down with Garchomp, only to get back up in the aftermath. And that last punch. Damn, it's like seeing a fatal blow minus the blood. When that happen, you know the impossible has occurred. Cynthia's Garchomp is finally defeated, though at the skin of the teeth.
Cynthia truly lives up to the reputation that the games and fans have laid out. For the longest time, she was the undefeated champion in the anime series. No one could touch her or reach beyond two. For Ash to not only make Cynthia use her entire team, but also defeat her in her first on-screen loss is a testament to how far Ash has come. Before, this was only in his dreams. Now it's a reality. All that's left is facing Leon.
That togekiss just refused to go down didn’t it? The sequence of bullet punch against it when it was dynamaxed was cool. I also liked Lucario’s and Garchomp final clash of punches. It really felt like Garchomp was feeling those punches.
I’m convinced Ash and Lucario have the bond phenomenon. Did you see Ash and Lucario do the same stance when Togekiss stopped dynamaxing?
All jokes aside I was really hoping she had some type of strategy giving the hype of her having Dynamax band and…spamming Flying Moves? That Lucario walked on?I think Cynthia was expecting to take out Lucario with Togekiss.
