Re: BW086: Pochama VS Yanappu, the Magnificent Battle

I wonder if this is for anything important or the battle is just for fun.

To be fair this could be the start of a tournament, don't most tournament episodes start with titles like this?

True. xD

If this is the tuournament... Aww if Hikari is sticking around this means that Dent gets kicked out the first round :(

I don't mean the tournament with Cynthia, maybe some smaller event before it.

Or if its just a fun battle for a filler, it won't be as exciting.

This is probably the episode in which Dawn appears again, and that the writers can't really do anything else to break the ice between her and Ash's current travelling companions. This episode seems to be a downer for me. Let's see two pokemon that we have seen plenty of battling from, and pit them against each other. That seems to be fun (sarcasm). I'm not expecting Cilan to win this match, just because that would defeat the purpose of Dawn reappearing in the first place.

Well if this happens in the same ep Dawn and co. are all running around from the wild pokemon, it'll probably just be one of those last minute battles at the end of an ep.

Well...this sounds like an exciting title...

It should be Stunfisk battling. :(

Nice match-up! But Hopefully they will do a 3 on 3, cause I want Dawn to star here and to flush the annoying Rock Bug away!

So this seems like a possible WTJuniorCup match up!

I am really looking forward to see a new move set for Buneary and Pachirisu. If her other Pokemon have learned one or two new moves as well, even better.

Only 2 episodes in and already Pochama has top billing in a title.

It really should, but to be fair, Yanappu doesn't really get that much screentime either.

Piplup BETTER have learned Drill Peck.

And Dive would also be nice.

Still...the real questions are....

is Cilan a*yawn* CONTEST CONNOISSEUR?

AND...

BITE OR ROCK TOMB:which one will be used here?

I think they usually mention the tournament's name too in the first ep of it... so I doubt it's a tournament or anything, just a random battle

Kibago should have battled Pochama

It'd probably immediately lose though XD
Pansage seems to have more of a chance battling Piplup, though Pip will probably beat it too

I hope Dawn's team have learnt new moves, that will be fun

There's no doubt at all that her team got some new moves by now... the bunny is the only one I'm worried about since it got its 3-moves-only curse XD

Is she gonna be annoyed ?
Is she gonna be Angry?
Is she gonna be Excited ?

Why would be annoyed, angry or excited? 0__o she'd probably just find it kind of weird but move on... if she'd even react to it at all

Piplup BETTER have learned Drill Peck.

I thought about that too - back in late DP I hoped that it'll learn Drill Peck to "replace" its regular Peck... but no...
You know how in early DP, like I think in DP11 (first Contest ep) Dawn shows that Pip can now make its beak grow bigger when it uses Peck? something that it couldn't previously do?... I thought that a logical progress from this would be for it to get it "upgraded" into Drill Peck... but it never happened... hopefully that will get "fixed" now

To be honest, I am uber happy about Dawn battling Cilan. Usually, female companions team up and battle but not this time, fortunately :D

I can not wait any longer :bounce:

"Usually"? That only happened with May and Dawn and that had more to do with them being very similar to each other in both goal and personality
It never happened with May/Misty and isn't as likely to happen with Dawn/Iris simply cause their goals and personalities are completely different (if Misty would appear though, it'd make sense to focus on some Iris/Misty interactions/battles)

I was referring to the girls in general. May got to battle Zoey as well as Dawn. She even got to participate with Dawn thrice; during the seven star restaurant episode, where she battled alongside Dawn against Team Rocket as well against Kylie & Roman and the contest finale. But didn't even have a training battle against Ash or Brock.

So, it is really nice to see a female companion battling against the boys during her return, in this case, Ash and Cilan.

I'm guessing this is the episode where Chaobuu battles Manmoo as seen in last week's Season 2 trailer so that we see a few more of Hikari's Pokémon in action.
