Triple Leaders, Team Threats!

Ash & Iris have finally reached Striaton City. First meeting with Cilan in a local restaurant, Ash learns about the gym there and is eager to earn his first badge within Unova. However, upon learning that there are three Gym Leaders in the gym, Ash is sure to face the first challenge of his Unova career...

The first battle is Pokabu vs Baoppu, Pokabu wins. Great strategy.


My review after watching the battle & all that crap.

-Hehe it looks kinda like Ash and and Iris are on a date.
-Rabid gym leader fangirls ftw!
-What's with Iris's sly expression?
-Great battling done by Pokabu.
-I fully respect Corn now... what an amazing strategy.
-Gotta love the "oh shiz" look on Miju's face hehe.

Really, never expected them to finish next week. I wanna see Mijumaru pwn Yanappu plox.

Been waiting for someone to post! It's great Pokabu won the match, and nice Ash is using strategy..

Will one of you by any chance right up a full summary?


Looks like Hiyappu almost beats Pikachu. Pikachu loses, too bad. 1-1.
Now Mijumaru has to beat Yanappu.


Wait, so the battle hasn't ended yet? It's strange. I was sure Ash is going to win the badge in this episode.
I guess he wins next week.

Well while Pikachu did lose again you have to admit that Hiyappu was pretty damn good. I never saw double team used like that in motion. Also Corn used a pretty good strategy by attack Pikachu's feet which is good because Pikachu's a very speedy Pokemon and attacking him there was a good idea.

Also the gym battle continues next week, pretty surprises for a first gym battle overall great episode. The is already better than half of the Sinnoh gym battle episode which I greatly despised expect for Hearthome.

Huh.. So he didn't have the Mijumaru battle yet? That's odd.. Or am I missing something here?

Commentary if no ones busy :D

Some of you are aware Hiyappu hit Pikachu with a ground type move, right? Edit: Or maybe not, seriously, it can only use two, so WTF was that move then.

I mean seriously hating the episode or not finishing it because Pikachu lost to a better trainer who HAS TO have Strategies against type advantages, is really the most stupid thing a fan of the anime can do.

I mean seriously, Corn was just better. it's not like Pikachu actually hit Hiyappu with any attacks anyway (except maybe quick attack).

Can someone make a commentary?


Ash is pretty excited to get to the First Gym this early.
Dento*'s here already and it's not even three minutes in.
Like most Isshu-native people he really likes Pikachu.
* Dent pronounces his name " Dent-o " so I'm using that for now on. Kay?
Dento agrees to take them to the gym when asked. He takes then to what looks like a cafe.
Ash doesn't want any food ... for once. He just wants to battle.
'Course when he says battle the fangirls go wild. Like literally.
The brothers are really showy when it comes to introductions. Like Fantina-showy.
Oh, this must be where Gary's Cheerleader's went.
Ash was supposed to choose his opponent but he wants to fight them all. They agree.
First up is Pod. Dent is acting as Ref.
Ash sends out Pokabu. Iris and I both are surprised.
Minus Fire Punch Pod's monkey has about the same move pool as Chimchar.
After some mishaps Pokabu pulled off a pretty impressive victory. It seems rather proud of itself.
Next up is Corn ... after the break.
After the break we get some of Team Rocket sneaking around town.
Now back to the Gym. Ash chooses Pikachu.
Corn is super-confident he'll win this one.
And it's no surprise why. Pikachu is more or less plummeted.
Back to Team Rocket. Looks like they're about to pull something with Giovanni's approval.
Now back to the Gym. It's Dent's turn. Pod's now reffing.
Roffle. The little otter-thing folded its arms like Buizel when it came out.
Oops. It looks afraid to battle after seeing its opponent just like the last episode.
Ash has to give it a pep talk saying that he knows its great and all.
After getting hit the otter-thing's really reluctant to fight.
It takes a while but they finally get a hit.
Then it gets serious. (music change and al - IT'S OVER

I wasn't expecting this to be a two parter, but here we go.

I just wanna ask if Dento and his brothers are effeminate?

Not really. It just seems like they're all trying to show off for their fangirl customers.

The TR subplot is now beng taken more seriously than I expected, wow.

So the otter has confidence issues when it comes to official battles?
