Agreed, I know this isn't the first time Cilan's lost, he's by no means a super impressive battler, but Sawk's performance was impressive regardless. He broke Evaluation Time. Sawk might just be the Legendary Super Saiyan.Stephan used Interrupt
It's super effective
Evaluation Time fainted.
Honestly, that was brilliant.
Lol yeah. Burgundy's spiteful fangirling just made it all the more better really.Agreed, I know this isn't the first time Cilan's lost, he's by no means a super impressive battler, but Sawk's performance was impressive regardless.

I'm actually glad they didn't mention it. I already knew about it, as I'm sure almost everyone watching did. Sometimes I think they beat us over the head by repeatedly saying that X-type of Pokemon is weak against Y-type attacks, or that such-a-move has whatever effect.As always Georgia makes an important point - why bring up Iris as a Dragon Master if she's not using a dragon type - why not instead get a character to point out Steel's weaknesses - it wasn't mentioned with the fire of Emboar against Bisharp and not with fighting and Excadrill. By not mentioning the type weaknesses, it makes both of their early losses look far more easy than they should have been - if the context to why Bisharp was damaged so much was mentioned it would have made the quick loss less strange for the storyline.
It's a strange case of a loss for an otherwise strong Pokemon being logically justified by type-disadvantage but not brought up in the dialogue at any point, which makes the Pokemon look far more powerful than they actually are. I know that's kinda the point for Throh, but in Emboar's case it probably would have been better to mention fire's advantage over Steel.
