I just dont understandYou and me both on every single point, buddy. Can't say it any better myself.
Ayup, all because Abomasnow was saved for last to be used for our titular clash. I knew they'd sideline Avalugg like that. A hollow victory.Ash defeated Avalugg this easily because Avalugg didn't have Ice Body active this time and Pikachu did weaken it a bit, before Talonflame was sent out. Talonflame got two Flame Charges in and a Steel Wing, combined with Pikachu's Thunder.
I'm actually curious if the writers themselves weren't sure to keep it. As ashs previous uses of the transformation weren't clear on that aspect....As Ash-Greninja is a form of synchro, it didn't make much (if any) sense to remove the pain-sharing thing when it was perfected.
It may not even be that unlikely either. I think certain Gym Leaders have certain sets of Pokemon they use for different Trainers/power levels. For example, the Bergmite he used may be the "Gym" Bergmite and not any of the "greeter" Bergmite that welcome people at the entrance.I think I'll just settle for the headcanon of this Abomasnow being a totally different individual to the last one and leave it at that. The power shift from Avalugg to Abomasnow is just way too jarring for me otherwise.
