Marowak is the easiest to animate, and is the only one who can make a "realistic" air guitar with its bone and large arms, so the decision was a no-brainer. I agree that it was very unfair though.
- Why did Kiawe have to use Marowak during the fight? He's already been getting far more screen time than the rest of his Pokémon (since he is Kiawe's walking Pokémon, apparently). Couldn't he have used Turtonator (since this is supposed to be a Dragon gym) or Charizard (since he still barely uses it in battles)? The only reason why I think the writers used Marowak was for that gag, which, as much as I enjoyed, was completely redundant, since we've already seen a lot of Marowak's personality;
To me, the episode wasn't that disappointing, as after that preview who showed that the classmates likely weren't going to battle I didn't expect much.
