And here I thought Ash was going to show Iris and Lance how to actually use a Dragonite.
They really hate Dragonite, don't they?And here I thought Ash was going to show Iris and Lance how to actually use a Dragonite.
At least it isn't a total blowout it seems. Also, dang, Lucario's going ham on that Togekiss.Why did I watch this. Half way through it spoiled the first half of the battle, with it showing which Pokemon went down.
Great! Even without pausing it, you could see some of the results.
Looks like Pikachu and Spiritomb draw as both their icons fade at the same time.
I guess Dragonite won’t get to use its Draco Meteor technique against Garchomp (Was always likely that it was never going to get the winning blow against it, and instead Lucario, but still)…if it got beaten without getting a K’O on one of Cynthia’s, I swear to God…please don’t tell me Dragonite is another Goodra
Makes sense, Lucario has the advantageAt least it isn't a total blowout it seems. Also, dang, Lucario's going ham on that Togekiss.
Wait, where'd you find that spoiler?They really hate Dragonite, don't they?
Also idk how to feel thatComes out of the blue and feels weird.Cynthia retires
The battle itself looks pretty okayish, but nothing that makes we excuted. We are still talking about Pokémon Journeys here.
Why bother have Cynthia retire as the Sinnoh Champion in an anime where the main character is essentially Peter Pan?Also idk how to feel thatComes out of the blue and feels weird.Cynthia retires
Indeed the trailer gave weirdly many spoilers of who loses and who wins.Why bother have Cynthia retire as the Sinnoh Champion in an anime where the main character is essentially Peter Pan?
Although, it might be a shout out to a side arc involving Volkner in DP, albeit with a different character. My theory is that Cynthia is considering on stepping down because she keeps winning all her matches, but her spark is rekindled when she battles Ash (and loses to him or Leon). Just like how Volkner had plans on challenging the Elite Four out of disillusion before he battles the player character.
Also, the trailer gave out too many spoilers. I wouldn't be surprised if the same applies to Ash's battle with Leon (if he defeats Cynthia).
Cynthia revealing her plan to retire before her match with Ash is only there to soften the blow of her losing. Like 'Eh, she was going to retire after the M8 anyway...'
It's there to build a narative that she's done it all from winning to losing and is ending her Champion career with what's supposed to be one of the most hyped battle of Journeys. It's also mirroring the player character from DPPt defeating the champion and dethroning them.
Lol kinda sad how we can predict half of the battle with one trailerSo here we are. Ash vs. Champion Cynthia. Judging by the preview, it seems Ash will lose Pikachu, Gengar, and Dragonite early on. We know one or two of them will take out Gastrodon and Spiritomb, and Pikachu will fall to Togekiss. It appears Togekiss will be defeated by Lucario and Lucario will be the last one standing to the absolute beast that is Champion Cynthia's Garchomp.
Poor Ash lol. He wil always be considered a rookie or a less trainer than his opponents. Like give the dude some credit!Don't know if anyone already posted this, but I thought it was a neat little graphic I found for the M8 tournament if it hasn't been already, had some "stats" on several characters here-- just for fun: found it randomly online.
