Well they did bring it back with Piplup, but yeah I thought it was weird when it was gone for a while.
I wish the writers didn't give Iris squeeing over cute pokemon thing to Bel because I can imagine an episode about that.
Btw Iris's character, I like her, but I haven't really got into her character like I have with Ash and Cilan.
But maybe it's just due to me preferring male characters over female characters in every show I watch.
... I never said that it would be a skill that would be gained out of nowhere...
Ah see? It wasn't so hard to make up an episode regarding Iris's wild-girl skills.
...Wait, what are you proposing with "skill out of nowhere?" I'm sure Cilan has had them for a while.
(Joking aside, I wonder why Cilan's got all these skills. Regarding that is who you were referring to.)
BW???: Iris and the Jungle Tournament!
A tournament focusing on athletic people who with their Pokemon face athletic challenges in a jungld. There's a lot of potential for hillarity there.
Sadly(or fortunately?), she isn't a character that gets skills out of nowhere just so she could have an episode focused on her.
I don't really mind since I found her to be a generally comedic character whose actions lift up the mood. Even in her serious episodes, there were fun momemts.
Now see, the episodes were Iris has been involved in a fun plot haven't focused mainly on herself.
Meanwhile the episodes that do focus mainly on Iris as a character have so far been serious episodes. Originally Posted by Tsutarja I wish we had more of Iris/Cilan - science vs supernatural feuds. :P Yes, yes, same here. I am hoping there will be an episode reintroducing that again.
That feud is one of the things that I love about the chemistry between Cilan and Iris.
I wish we had more of Iris/Cilan - science vs supernatural feuds. :P
There was the joint Cilan/Iris museum episode. But it wasn't about Iris, specifically.
Yes Iris has been involved in some fun plots, but she hasn't had a fun episode focused on her character.
What I was saying is:- I'd like there to be an episode involving the entertaining aspects of Iris's persona.
Emolga capture episode, Bouffalant episode and the recent Onix episode are fun episodes that focused on Iris.
Iris' character was written to be the more serious one anyways.
I'd say that the Bouffalant episode was quite fun, haha.
Ha, Cialn kills things with Crustle. It's the only Pokémon who Cilan hardly makes up a strategy for.
Shell Smash + Rock Wrecker is a great combination when used right in the games. I should know.
It just came off as forced though that Cilan could beat Pinot Noir that easy is all that is being said :P I don't think the anime is even treating Shell Smash's Defense drop as a flaw, since it always never matters. Plus Burgundy isn't even allowed to have an opinion because she's the new Team Rocket.
In comparison to the games it's accurate, however for the anime it could go either way.
Also we should consider that there's yet to be a trainer who has taken advantage of Crustle's lowered defences after it has used Shell Smash. Skyla's Swanna was just a head-on collision that wasn't taking advantage of the lowered defences. Though that could be why Cilan's Crustle lost, they were lowered twice. Crustle suddenly being faster than Noir's quick Purrloin took both Noir and Purrloin by surprise.
I think it's more so unbelievable because Pinot Noir is an A-Class Connoisseur too, yet Cilan beat him easy.
The joy of having a Stunfisk on your head.... Until it shocks you. Best stick with the cap.
I wonder if one of those Stunfisk is a "Become a Stunfisk Cap"....in the Pokemon world...guess what? It works
Yes, Crustle's defeat of Purrloin was, in fact, very accurate when compared with the games. No matter how high a level it is, a Crustle is guaranteed to defeat a Purrloin with a Shell Smash + Rock Wrecker combo. Heck you won't even need to use Shell Smash. It's (like said) due to Purrloin's weak defence.
