I'd have to agree, I mean one of the bad things about Aipom's capture late, is that it didn't get to do anything, and yes it was caught because of Ambipom and also for a trade. Ash receiving Gible now, then having it stay at Professor Oak's, maybe even learning a new move so Ash can use it during the filler saga would be much preferable, because then we can say it's just a new Pokemon he caught at Oak's.But Scott, quite frankly, I don't understand why you insist on your opinion that Gliscor will be Oak'ed.
As I said before, it could as well be possible and even likely that it will be Gible who will be sent to Oak's lab.
That way, I would get my longed-for Gible, you could keep your beloved Gliscor at least a bit longer and all of us could be looking forward to a brandnew start in the Battle Frontier with a brandnew, fantastic Pokemon.
All's well that ends well...
So it can actually do something unlike Aipom who was getting dumped despite not doing anything. If it didn't stow away and help Ash win his Coal badge and earn his Forest Badge, Aipom would've done absolutely nothing.What exactly would be the purpose of capturing a Gible just to send it to Oak's lab? If that were the case, the writers would have saved the capture till after the league was over.
Better to have him capture it there than at the beginning of DP, I guess? The writers screwed up Ambipom altogether when they released it, so all its focus eps now seem like a waste.So it can actually do something unlike Aipom who was getting dumped despite not doing anything.

I'd agree with that. This...Argh, Gible...
Well if he's going to get one then I hope it is weak as hell from the beginning and is essentially crap. If it's strong from the start then not only is it boring it also shows the other pokes to be weak. I dont want any "Dragon/pseudo legendary strong immediately" thing, that's boring and will make some of the more fanatical users here happy. I want the caught Gible to be compared to the current members of the team, show that they are much more capable and then see Ash have to work extremely hard to get Gible up to their standard.
The writing team has thus far been paralyzed at giving any of the main characters Dark (OMG EVUL), Psychic, Ghost, or Dragon-type (TOO UBER UNBALANCED, LUL) Pokemon - the breaking of that rut could lead to more potential variety in the cast overall.Why do people care so much about whether or not Satoshi gets this pokemon in the first place? Why is *this* worth pages and pages of speculation, excitement, and disappointment?
Actually, that part reminds me, if they couldn't give Ash a Dark Type or even evolve one of his Pokemon into a Dark Type (IE, Corphish), why didn't they give JJM a Dark type? I mean, if the statement about it's japanese name being the Evil type is true, then they have no reason NOT to give JJM a Dark type. I really don't buy the "JJM's the Comic Relief" excuse, seeing how CB are the comic relief as well [especially in the Hosos], and that never stopped CB from owning Dark Types in the past (Sableye, Houndour, and Mightyena).Its a shame Ash never got a ghost type or a dark type, or stuff like that.
They even prevented Corphish from evolving just cause Crawdaunt was part dark type. But yeah, its nice to see Ash get a type he never had before.
I was just pointing out the flaws about how Ash and Co. can't have Dark Types just because apparantly in Japan, they are the "Evil-type". I mean, common-sense, if that truly was the reason [which it is not], they would have given JJM one. I always hated it when people claimed that Dark Types are evil. Heck, I hate it if they even insinuate that any pokemon is evil (Otherwise, they WOULDN'T have Ekans and Koffing explicitly tell Meowth that Pokemon cannot be evil.)It's just a stupid fan made rule that the main character "can't" have dark/psychic/ghost types (not to mention Misty did have Starmie)
Most of the main characters have their unique kind of team and that's the most logical reason to why they didn't get some of the other types:
Ash usually has: Pikachu, early bird of the region, the grass starter, a fire type, a water type, a random Poké
May/Dawn usually have mostly cute little Poké
Misty had mostly water types
Brock is totally random (so is Tracey, if we can even count a 3-Poké-character)
Jessie seems to now always have this team: Wobbuffet/poison snake/bug type
And James always have a cute little psychic type and a grass type that hurts him
I don't understand why the TRio have to get dark types jsut because they're "bad guys" Weedle... I really don't get why does it even matter so much, it's not liek the main characters HAVE to get all the types that exist...
And dark types aren't associated with bad guys in the anime at all - Gary/Umbreon, Drew/Absol...
