People, this is not a review thread for the Sinnoh League as a whole. This is a topic for "Working on a Right Move!" only. Get back on topic or I'll start handing out infractions.
Definitely my favorite episode and battle so far, I just love all the unconventional strategy that was used in it that is not often seen in battles. Leave it to Conway. Yeah it's a shame to see Conway go cause I wanted him to stick around for the rest of the league, but glad we got gliscor back though.
Yeah, I think this is the first time they used the word shiny to describe an alternate color Pokemon. However, I think that I've heard them use it before.
Pretty good episode. Ash vs Conway is definitely one of the better battles in the series. What makes it so good is that it's so wonderfully different than your usual battle. Lickilicky molesting Gible, Shuckle Sludge Bombing Gible inside its mouth (huh, Gible was the victim in both these cases XD), the whole Trick Room thing, everything was priceless.
Cynthia's indecisiveness over anything that is food...'tis a great character quirk! Something you wouldn't expect an all-powerful champion to have. Much like Drake, the badass sailor with dragons, apparently has an obsession for peppermint.
This still remains as my second favorite fight in the league. Still loved how Gible and Noctowl were able to kick ass in this fight, especially with Gible finally mastering Draco Meteor, even if it did come out of nowhere. I was expecting Gible to perfect it in a better fashion, but eh, that's the breaks. Still love how Barry fanboyed over Noctowl being a shiny.
As for Conway as an opponent, he was pretty tricky foe, especially with planning out every attack, every possible outcome, even when he learned that Ash wasn't going to use Infernape. Still wished the animation for Trick Room was like the same as in Battle Revolution, but that probably would have been a very costly animation.
I won't contribute to the "good" old BGM or rather DUB music- discussion as I think that there are much more important things to talk about.
Here is the picture I mentioned in my review. It is so gorgeous and wonderful, I dare say it's like a precious treasure and I couldn't help posting it.

Honestly, the only thing that disappointed me about this episode was Donphan's performance. Granted, I know he had a lot going for him previously, but I just wanted for one attack of his to connect with either Shuckle or Dusknoir. Otherwise, I think this was a good league battle for Ash. Now for Ash vs. Paul....

You will be missed.
I really wonder if this Dusknoir was the same one that Conway interacted with back in the summer school arc.
