    Poor Oshawott just can't catch a break from losing can he :/

    Haven't watched the episode yet but by the pictures it seems the battle is over and Oshawott is just koed in a comedic way or am I wrong? I just see people whining none explaining anything.

    He loses to a single Thunder Fang after trying to get his Scalchop back which Herdier knocked away with Take Down. All that training to ignore the shell gone to waste since the very episode it learned to fight without it :p

    This is getting ridiculous. I don't know if it's Ash's fault, Oshawott's fault or a mixture of both but this is getting really annoying for me considering I'm a huge Ash and Oshawott fan.

    I know I there were negative posts made by me about Oshawott's failure and lack of Stunfisk but I do have to say I enjoyed seeing the groups split up and trying to get the pokemon. It was great seeing Sunflora again for some reason. I'm suprised people didn't complain about Ahs scanning Sunflora and Shinx.

    Well Scalchop is part of his battle style but yeah enough of that they just wanted to be funny and thats why he got knocked out basicly since he tanked some of Hydreigon attacks which are surelly stronger then Herdier.

    They ruined his character a long time ago, or rather his popularity made them change his character and ruin it, atleast to me, I still find him funny but its getting annoying.

    I wonder if it's possible that Cheren makes a reappearance in the anime. I mean he is really popular in the games that maybe he will appear again and have a rematch with Ash.

    Saw the pictures, looks fine to me.

    Wasn't sure if the battle would get interrupted or not, was expecting it to happen at the start of the episode too.

    I'll enjoy the episode more once I watch it and understand what's being said.
  9. the writers have done **** all this entire season

    I'm not much of a extremest on him like dman, but I do agree that he's becoming one of Ash's weakest Pokemon. Maybe he really isn't, but he is being depicted that way. The day he wins again is the day I'll be proud that I like him

    I don't know when it started to go downhill for the poor sea otter but he started off so strong. Maybe losing to Bianca's dad was the start of him going downhill.

    I agree with everything Dman said aside from the releasing/trading part.

    Oshawott is a complete and utter joke. What's worse is that he makes Ash look like even more of a joke.

    The writers are pathetic. I'm sick of this happening now, they have really screwed up Ash's strength as a trainer and the power of his team.

    I genuinely feel that if this keeps up for much longer i'll stop watching the anime at the end of BW, which believe me i don't want to do.

    That doesn't mean much, they made him have a good showing against Hydreigon, they just prefer to use him as a comedy tool 90% of the times.

    They started to write him more and more as a marketing tool instead of just being funny but striving to be strong around the 5th gym.

    Was I the only one hoping Rosa or Nate would get some kind of cameo in this episode?

    Eh, I didn't have as much of a problem with the loss for Oshawott. I never really saw this as a big battle for it. I meanhad this been for Ash's gym badge then I'd be upset, but we knew going in that this episode and battle would be lighthearted. Do I want him to win? Yes, but this isn't the pinnacle for him. He's hardly as weak as people think.

    People expected a decent battle because Oshawott vs. Herdier was in the opening, but what we got was poo, thus making the opening scene completely pointless.

    I also doubt there's gonna be a rematch.
  17. Joltik-Kid

    Joltik-Kid Meh ಠ_ಠ

    I didn't exactly see a good showing against Hydreigon to be honest... Ash was just calling attacks out like crazy, which was the reason Oshawott had momentum until Cameron finally called out an attack of his own. It went all downhill from there.

    So tell me what makes him stronger then any of Ash's other Pokemon?
  18. gohan5

    gohan5 Irisboy

    What makes any Pokemon stronger than another? His scalchop is his biggest weakness but also gives it an advantage over some. I don't know what you want me to say. Any of Ash's Pokemon could beat another if the situation is right so yeah.

    I'm glad the writers still aren't using TRio in every episode.

    I can't believe Oshawott's loss has caused World War 3 to break out. Like really, it's not that big of a deal. Oshawott has lost many times and although I would have liked to see him win here, it's not the end of the world since he's always been more of an entertainer than a battler. I think more attention should be paid to Axew, who once again wandered off and caused tons of problems. This was like what, the dozenth time he's done this? Oh and yeah, Cheren looked nice. But surprisingly enough, he wasn't the most important part of this episode for me.
