    I actually said "Is that it?" out loud when Krokorok went down. Christ, I've become such a nerd.

    The aerial portions of the battle were really well animated. Lots of different camera angles that rarely, if ever, get used and lots of energy behind the movement. If this didn't have Iwane behind it, I'm not sure if I'd have really liked this one, but as it stands, I'll definately be rewatching this a fair amount. Christ, I've become such a nerd!

    Beated, technically. No swirly eyes but he was exhausted so referee declared him as "unable to battle".

    Probably just Gust.

    Oh, and Aerial Ace again? After Ohsubame and Mukuhawk knew it, I really thought Kenhallow would get a different move to change things up. I would have loved to have seen it get Sky Attack since Satoshi has never had a Pokemon know that move (well, apart from Yorunozuku in the Suzuran Conference) and it works on the same prinicipal... but nope, the writers are proving just how unimaginative they are.

    I'm kinda ticked off that Kenhallow just picked it up out of the blue as well. Remember how hard Satoshi trained Ohsubame and Mukkuru to use it? None of that here... but to be fair, Best Wishes has barely shown Satoshi training his Pokemon at all. If I didn't know better, I'd say he's relying to blind luck to get him through these days (and to be honest, the way he is now I wouldn't expect him to get through the Isshu League preliminaries).

    It's a shame that SG Krokorok had to be the fall guy. Naturally SG Krokorok had a type advantage over Swoobat, but at least it wasn't Pikachu who got the revenge win. If it were not for Tranquill evolving, I'd have to say that Pikachu got the majority of the screentime and focus in this episode. Pikachu's battles against the male Tranquill and Swanna took at least three or four minutes each to resolve. Tranquill's evolution during its battle against Swanna was expected, but I am disappointed that Unfezant learned Aerial Ace, a flying-type attack that has been replicated by three of Ash's other pokemon over the course of his entire journey.

    Well, at least Gust and Air Cutter provide Unfezant with some unique niche as one of Ash's flying-type pokemon.

    Overall, the battle was average. It wasn't too great but it didn't end up a pacing disaster like last week's gym battle.

    I'm surprised that Krokorok went down to swoobat. Really? come on, the croc should of done a lot better than that.

    I didn't expect Krokorok to go down easily, too, especially since it was being used in an unconventional manner. Exhaustion? Really? The Pika that....oh, that's right, continuity's been borked. Unfezant looked almost like Articuno while evolving. This was better than the past few gyms, but still a little predictable.
