SM137 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

Summary courtesy of Dephender from Serebii

It's the second match of the semifinals. Hassam suddenly had to battle due to Guzma's partner Pokémon Gusokumusha's "Emergency Exit" activating, and it ended up losing to Nyaheat, making Guzma indignant with rage over Gusokumusha's tendency to do as it pleases. And even though Guzma has been in the lead so far, he gradually loses his pace as he sees his old rival Kukui in Satoshi's forthright eyes.

I was correct in Scizor battling and being defeated by Torracat!

Guzma has been cold and cool, and that’s been his road to victory. It makes sense that the match he gets worked up brings his downfall. I’m guessing a weak Golispod has to battle Ash’s second Pokemon after Scizor faints.

This promises to be an exciting episode with Yūji Asada, Masaaki Iwane and Izumi Shimura involved

Guzma finally breaking down and that being animated by Iwane is a dream come true.

Iwane and Asada have done great work in the past so it promises to be very exciting

Very hyped, great staff list. I have a feeling this will be the best match coming from the alola league. From a story perspective it also makes sense Ash fights with Torracat. This makes the connection between Ash and Kukui even stronger for Guzma, there will maybe be a short flashback of Guzma fighting Kukui's former Torracat.

That would be nice, maybe Guzma having a Wimpod, Scyther or a third Pokemon

^ I hope there will be one more Guzma episode after the league where Kukui and Guzma mend their friendship. Even if this episode is focused on Guzma, I feel like it would be too rushed to conclude his arc here.

Part of me doubt their friendship will be patched up, especially as he appears to lose to Ash

This episode should be great, Omode has done some amazing work in XY, SM, and even a bit in BW, and the rest of the staff list needs no introduction

Well I hope that Guzma will get a reality check and lose some of his arrogance by the end of this episode. His ego is bigger than Seto Kaiba's.

Looks like Guzma will be the evilest character we seen since Hunter J. Should we hope for another implied death scene?
I’m not counting it. I’m guessing they’ll go down the Ultra route and he’ll soon have a change of heart (which could happen if they do an arc).
