    Default “A Grand Fight for Winning!” Review Thread

    It’s the final round of the Grand Festival. Dawn and Zoey are ready to entertain their audience with their (hopefully) intense final battle.

    Talk about toppers, not disappointing at all.
    5 for 5.

    Well, finally over heh? Perhaps now the league can finally start. I do have more things to say just from the minutes of watching, but that wouldn't pertain enough to the forum rules ... so I will just leave it at this: for something so big, it didn't feel so epic.

    This episode was an episode that didn't disappoint at all. And best of all, they actually put in an insert song to make the battle more intense. This was one of the best final battles in a while. But Dawn, does it really take that much effort to wait 15 episodes to be all emotional on us?

    If I had to guess, it's called Ultimate Challenge. I would've accepted Kimi No Soba De in English but this was just as good.

    On topic: I said that Dawn should've win and I still think so but, damn, was this a great battle! I was nervous to watch at first because Dawn would lose but it was a great battle and I rooted for her all the way!

    Like everyone before me said, it was an episode that didn't disappoint. It gets a 5/5!

    Wait, they actually made a brand new song? Cause I don't remember any song like that... I'd expect them to just use an old song (like how they used "I'll Always Remember You" from Movie 10 in the Gliscor ep) but if they bothered to make a new song just for this ep it's awesome! hope that happens more often from now on

    No matter how you may feel about Dawn or contests, I think this episode is more or less required viewing, simply because of how gorgeous it looks. There's a lot of creative stuff going on in this one, and it really is a treat for the eyes.

    That said, the battle itself was definately lackluster imo. It was pretty much 'Fire attack! Dodge/Intercept it!' throughout the entire match, and it was a factor that really began to wear thin the longer it went on. Vs. Plusle and Minun and Nando and Zoey's match top this in terms of entertainment value from where I stand.

    Even though this was a quite nice episode, I personally think that the Daybreak Final Round was just a pinch better.

    Sounds kinda corny.

    So if I understood correct, it seems like they actually bothered to make a brand new song for this ep! When was the last time that happened? Season 9 ?
    10 11 12 - three seasons they never bothered to do that... and finally they do it again
    I liked how 4Kids did it a lot (eps like Pika almost leaving, Misty leave, Max and Ralts, Pika lose memory, etc...) and I was disappointed that the new dub seemed to either not use songs in eps at all, or use existing ones instead of creating new ones for the specific ep
    I really hope they'll continue to use new songs when needed

    Overall, they used 7 pieces of Japanese dub music.

    That song makes me think that it was going to be the original opening to Sinnoh League Victors, but it was somewhat recalled, and used to make this final battle better.

    Although, now that I remembered, the battle was a little rushed and could have been better if it were two episodes instead, of one, but that's the Pokémon Anime for you.

    Something disappointing is that Dawn has never ever won against Zoey.
