Still no word on SM139's title, makes me wonder if there is going to be a break after this episode or they're avoiding spoilers if the finals is a one episode matc
I am fairly certain we'll be getting more titles before Sunday.

Satoshi's mother is young, but NOT that young!


I'm confused: is it confirmed to be 3vs3 or not?
Based on the magazine scans, I'd say yes.
It’s unwise to present only one side of the situation and almost show it as a fact when we don’t know for certain.

The V/S screen shows 3 balls but there’s precedence for the Pokémon image on the screen to not have it’s Pokeball shown so it might be 4 vs 4.

I didn't say I was absolutely sure. I just made an educated guess.

I guess, it just seemed like you were presenting it as a reached consensus, with no indication that there’s still a just as likely 4 vs 4 possibility.
I said "I'd say", which I thought would show it being a guess, but I guess I didn't convey that well enough.

And based on the SM139 preview summary, Melmetal will lose to Silvally, who is then beaten by Pikachu. Classic Fujisaku...

Is it me or does the Double Iron Bash animation look way similar to a weird version of Gyro Ball?

Also, glad to see they haven't forgotten Oak's poetry moments.

I wonder if Fujisaku can make Pikachu pull off a realistic win against Silvally...

It certainly looks like it could work, have Electro Web slow Silvally down like it works in the game

I think that will depend on how easily it beats Melmetal. If it beats Melmetal easily, then it would be tough to see Pikachu be able to beat it if it uses the right Drive. However, if Melmetal gives it all it can handle and Silvally is on its last legs when it faces Pikachu, then things change drastically. Pikachu will be fresh and is already naturally agile while dealing with a tired opponent. Even with the Ground Drive, a few Quick Attacks and/or Iron Tails would likely be enough for Pikachu to pull off the win.

Meanwhile, Gladio's fighting sprit burns with quiet passion as he's being supported by Lilie and Lusamine.
Probably the greatest treachery since this:
