    Default AG 158 "Fierce Fighting at the Battle Pike! VS Pike Queen Lucy" Review Thread

    It's Ash's Pikachu and Donphan against Lucy's Seviper and Miltotic, as Ash attempts to earn the Luck Symbol.

    Blushing over Brock? This might be very interesting.

    I'm glad they gave Lucy two phallic Pokemon, they kept her in character with her game counterpart.

    Interesting to note that this is only the first time Pikachu has been used in a Brain battle.

    And that's probably only because of Volt Tackle. Great to see Donphan in there too.

    Hades knows why she's blushing over Brock's proposals though. I wouldn't really have thought Brock to be her type. Not enough kink, i'd imagine.

    Yeah. Somehow I get the impression this is some sort of misleading, a la Prince Tracey and the Mistymaid, or that Lucy's infatuation won't survive the episode.

    Still, it's an interesting pair to consider - I mean, I tend to think Brock is better suited with someone sweeter, and Lucy... well, I never thought about it, but someone spicier, definitely. Or at least someone in leather. But maybe opposites really do attract? Brock is wild enough to try anything once, particularly if a girl is involved, and maybe Lucy has a soft side she doesn't show many people... I'm intrigued, and can't wait to see how this plays out.

    So who wants to bet this episode doesn't involve Satoshi going through the Battle Tube, and is just a normal gym-ish battle?

    And who wants to bet that Lucy's personality is completely butchered?

    Um, that's already obvious. Considering this is only one episode, Lucy battles Team Rocket, there's the Brock/Lucy angle, and Ash has a 2 on 2 Pokemon battle with Donphan/Pikachu Vs. Milotic/Seviper....they simply won't have time for anything else.

    Besides that, the writers have ignored all the special rules of all the other Battle Facilities, why would they start now? All the Frontier Brains were turned into "normal" Gym leaders. There's nothing that seperates them apart from them.

    Why is that? Nearly all the Gym Leaders and Frontier Brains in AG have all been pretty much the same as their game counterparts.

    The last Gym leader that was completely butchered was Jasmine in Johto. In the games she's suppossed to be this quiet, insecure little girl Gym leader. In the show she was this confident, "older sister" type girl who knew what she was doing.

    Otherwise the writers have kept all the game characters in check.

    There was also Clair who came across as just another goody-goody with a personallity as bland as plain paper, whilst her game counterpart seemed to have a superiority complex and didn't seem to have much respect for anyone she deemed to be beneath her.

    Tate & Liza were nothing like their game counterparts either.

    They were about half-way into the battle, though.

    Eh, I kind of liked the fact that Tate/Liza didn't speak at the same time like in the games, or speak telepathically. Tate and Liza seemed like normal kids in the show, and I liked the fact that their father was the main astronaut in the Space station.

    Not really. In the game they were linked telepathically, whilst in the animé they had to just learn to work together. Which actually makes me wonder just how well they performed against other trainers that challenged them before Ash rolled in...

    The characterisation of them was just messed up, but they were in synch for the second half of the battle.
