between Satoshi and Shigeru continues! Shigeru has just released
his Kamex, and it quickly defeats Satoshi's Heracross with a Hydro Pump
attack. Satoshi's next pokemon is his Betobeton, who is able to
hold its own against the water pokemon. However, after sustaining
a Hydro Pump attack, Satoshi decides to recall his poison-type pokemon.
Next up is Satoshi's Bayleef who, despite its type advantage,
also falls before Shigeru's pokemon. Since Satoshi has already
lost three of his pokemon, a five minute time-out is called.
After the break, Shigeru switches his Kamex out with his WIndy,
Satoshi calls on his Kabigon to battle. Kabigon is able to come
with a victory after attacking with a Hyper Beam. Satoshi's
streak continues as Kabigon uses Ice Punch to destroy Shigeru's
Nidoqueen. Shigeru's next pokemon is Hassamu, who uses its speed
to deliver a Metal
Claw that knocks Satoshi's pokemon out. Satoshi brings his
Betobeton out again, but Hassamu is able to use a combination of a
and Speed Star (Swift) to earn a victory. Satoshi only has one
pokemon left, but he's saved his strongest pokemon for last--Lizardon.
quickly takes care of Shigeru's Hassamu, so Shigeru is forced to use
strongest pokemon--Kamex. As Satoshi's pokemon is busy dodging
Blast attacks, Satoshi has his pokemon use its Flamethrower attack on
rocky field, confining Kamex to one spot. Kamex uses its Hydro
to cool down the field, and in the resulting steam Lizardon is able to
in close without anyone noticing. The fire-type uses Seismic Toss
after a tense moment, Kamex falls! Satoshi has beaten Shigeru,
him to advance to the next round! Soon, it is revealed that the
battle will be between Satoshi and Hazuki! To be continued!
because I don't like the battle in the episode. On the contrary,
think it's one of the best battles in the series. I agree with
of every single battle in this episode, and I didn't feel like the
cheated at all in order to award Satoshi the victory.
what happens after the battle that annoys me. I guess this
episode is supposed to be the conclusion of Delibird's dealings with
the Rocket-Dan, since I don't
think it appears any more in the future, and it's a really bad
conclusion at that. The Rocket-Dan's debt isn't repaid, yet
Delibird stops visiting them after this episode. What's the deal
with that? Also, I think the anime jumped into the Satoshi and
Hazuki WAY too quickly. There was no build-up, we didn't see any
of Satoshi's preparations, nothing. We're just thrown into the
start of the battle, providing a stark contrast to all the preparations
and hard work that was put into the battle with Shigeru.
As far as the
dub goes, it's almost perfect compared to the last episode.
"Ash from Pallet Town has the honor to go first, followed by
Harrison from Silver Town."
Littleroot Town, not this made-up "Silver Town."
