I think it’s partially for casual audiences. Many of Ash’s pokemon that don’t move the plot end up in the background when they show up, so sprinkling some random ones in there might confuse people that aren’t caught up.
I mean, this battle has literally been in the opening lines this whole saga, no writer/producer with half a brain cell would pull out something like this… hopefully.
Ludicolo did get used, actually. It battled Sawyer’d Aegislash.
I know the company is stingy with full battles, but they oughta throw us a bone for what’s essentially the climax of the whole anime.
… phrasing it like that makes it sound so much more exciting than it is.
Well yes, I suppose it’s not the healthiest way to teach kids how to deal with pent up frustration, but we’ll see. Perharps a more “achievable” battle with Ash can remind him that he isn’t a pushover, he’s just aiming higher than most.
If anything I’m concerned about his knuckles, holy fuck...
I find the people that say Ash “doesn’t evolve his pokemon” so hilarious, because like… do they expect Ash to completely ignore Pikachu’s desires and chuck a Thunder Stone on his face? Do these people really think this doesn’t have any horrifying implications you wouldn’t want your kids to learn?
