Keep in mind, it got hit with several super-effective Sludge Bombs before that though, as well as the damage it took from Braviary.Great battle as ever. Sadly, Rowlet got out from the Solar Beam only to be defeated afterwards by Venusaur Vine Wipe.
I was disappointed with this too, but I'm thinking they did so since Lycanroc just got a lot of spotlight with the Gladion fight and they want to give screentime to Ash's other Pokemon; Melmetal even got its first win.Feeling a bit pissed on how Lycanroc was beaten so quickly, only for its screentime to be shifted and wasted on Rowlet's pointless ping-pong gag and let's not forget that magical Feather Dance again.
You try taking a full force Sky Drop with that much force and hit the ground and tell me how you were able to come out on top unscathed.Feeling a bit pissed on how Lycanroc was beaten so quickly,
I never said anything about the moves? Yes, a Sky Drop would hurt... my point was that they took Lycanroc out when he only managed to Counter one rock back to Braviary. They pretty much shifted potential Lycanroc screentime to pointless Rowlet gags, whose win against Braviary comes off as cheap as well. It would have been believable if Lycanroc had managed to deal more damage to the latter and hence Rowlet managing to defeat its opponent with ease.You try taking a full force Sky Drop with that much force and hit the ground and tell me how you were able to come out on top unscathed.
Lycanroc clearly took a lot of damage from that move, more than Gladion's Lycanroc would ever do to it in most of battle.
Honestly with how hard Lycanroc hit the ground, I was surprised it was able to survive, let alone almost survive another heavy attack only to faint soon after.
Sigh Why is it that people are unable to understand my responses (from another forum and this one)I never said anything about the moves? Yes, a Sky Drop would hurt... my point was that they took Lycanroc out when he only managed to Counter one rock back to Braviary.
Have to agree there, two strong fully evolved starters only to be defeated in a few movesVenesaur was too easily defeated even with Terrocat. Same with Empoleon. I can see Lucario and Poipoles evo being a tie.
And you misinterpreted my words and went on a lengthy off-topic drivel. My issue was Lycanroc being defeated quickly (regardless of how it happened) and its screentime being shifted to time wasting gags from Rowlet, with the latter probably hogging most of the screentime. Rowlet's win against Braviary would have been far more believable if Lycanroc had managed to land a few more hits on Braviary and then be defeated.Sigh Why is it that people are unable to understand my responses (from another forum and this one)
YOU said you were upset that Lycanroc was knocked out so quickly.
I really don't understand why you are not understanding what I'm saying. Lycanroc lost quickly because it was slammed into the ground likely at a force far greater than any normal Pokemon should've been able to survive.
I'm so confused as to why you don't understand that. On top of a follow up to another heavy hit that directly hit Lycanroc with really no defense.
Furthermore my confusion is why you think you said nothing about Pokemon moves has anything to do with what I said.
Person: I don't like bananas because they are yellow
Person B: They are yellow because of photosynthesis (hypothetically, I don't actually know if they are yellow because of it or not).
Person: I didn't say anything about photosynthesis?
Person B: I don't see why that matters when you said bananas are yellow and I explained why they are yellow.
Either my logic is so incomprehensible to understand because I must be thinking in an entirely different language however that would work (and no I don't mean actual different languages). Or my comprehension is so utterly low that everything anyone responds with to me is confusing.
I just don't know anymore about what's going on.
I agree about Empoleon; it was very frustrating to see Pikachu fail to land any Electric type moves on it or Ash use Melmetal's super-effective Thunderbolt on it, instead opting to spam 4x-ineffective moves instead.Have to agree there, two strong fully evolved starters only to be defeated in a few moves
True Torracat had the type advantage against Venusaur but still
As for Empoleon, it only received a few hits from moves that were either Steel type or a not so powerful but effective Electro Web. If Thunderbolt hit, it would be more believable
True with Torracat, would have been more believable though if it was Blaze or Torracat had Flash Fire (which it can't have)Torracat, however, was different as I believe it was said (forgot who, I think Oak) that Incineroar's Blast Burn affected Torracat's Fire Fang and Fire Blast, making them stronger than normal in that instance.
Maybe or maybe not.I feel like Ash is going to lose this badly.
Yeah, I know that. But still, he should had already notice that brave bird is a suicide move that ultimately lead to defeat. At least, rowlet should do some more damage, before going down. But nonetheless, Torracat did a hell lot of job for taking Venusaur.Keep in mind, it got hit with several super-effective Sludge Bombs before that though, as well as the damage it took from Braviary.
