Handshaking moment for this episode. Worried that Ash is going to lost and drop. Never thought, he did it again. Nonetheless, the master class that also included Sinnoh Champion, Cynthia. Looking forward for Ash battle her in future episode. Nonetheless, the segment is little bit cheating by switching one pokemon after another to avoid damage.
Overall rating: B-
Based on my understanding, seems like Ash used 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt to try and "overload" Electivire's Motor Drive to brute force his way through it. Volkner even ordered his Electivire to put its Motor Drive to full use moments before the attack hit. Or something like that, anyway.Motor Drive should have prevented 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt from defeating Electivire, or have I missed something
That's basically what Set mode does in the games, so I wouldn't really call it cheating. Still, it's rare to see sudden switches like that in the anime (we usually only see it when a Pokemon uses a switching move like U-turn), but it definitely made the battle feel more exciting and dynamic.Nonetheless, the segment is little bit cheating by switching one pokemon after another to avoid damage.
Yeah, I thought it was quite obvious that Dazzling Gleam being shown in Gengar's moveset was just an error. Thankfully we finally have confirmation of that.Gengar doesn't have Dazzling Gleam. We can finally put that to rest.
We got a new move debut in this episode: Luxray used Rising Voltage, a move introduced in The Isle of Armor.
