    In order to get his eighth badge and compete in the Isshu League, Satoshi has come to the Tachikawa Gym. The Gym Leader is Homika of the super punk band "The Dogas," and the gym is a performance venue turned battlefield! Despite being surrounded by an audience and being given an odd vibe, Satoshi and Pikachu are able to fire everyone up with Pikachu's 100,000 Volt attack! Additionally, Homika, who's full of confidence, decides to only put up three of her pokemon to battle Satoshi's six! Homika sends out a Dogas she got in the Kanto region and is able to poison Satoshi's Kenhorou despite its speed! What will Satoshi do!?

    Homika is so mean to challengers…. She beat the crap out of all of them..
    Homika is overconfident, but she really deserves it.. she even gives Pecha Berry to Chaoboo to heal the Poisoned status… She is really confident that she will win… (6 vs 3 already proved that), even she lose, she wins respects.
    Meloetta watching the match… not much expected..
    Ash’s way of using Hahakomori vs Dogasu is genius.. he should have used it earlier :P
    Stactic saved Ash’s butt, as everyone expected from the preview
    Dento and Iris and Kibago………WOW, that’s unexpected again…. (Where they get the paints anyway? Oh, and the drums)
    Close victory, Closer than Close itself, and WOW, Pecha Berry again… I can’t see she is such a nice girl from what the previous challengers said..

    This was a good episode. Gamagaru went down pretty quickly which was expected but still a bit disappointing.

    Homika was pretty fun though and Iris was hilarious when she went to go get a drum.

    I really liked these eps, a great Gym Battle (best one in BW at least for me), and I totally loved how much Iris got into cheering Ash XD she really seems to warm up to Ash lately...
    Too bad though we didn't get any Dawn/Cynthia cameo at the end or something, but whatever...
    Also WTF at them putting the "NEXT TIME A NEW BEGINNING" thing instead of "TO BE CONTINUED"... they're really trying to promote "Season 2" as much as they can despite how it's really just a continuation of BW and not a new series

    OMFG I LOVED this episode. Homika is my new favorite gym leader in Unova.

    And when Iris got that drum and forced Dent to dress up I LOL'd.

    Oh wow I lol'd so hard at Team Rocket Live Caster. It was unexpected that's for sure.

    Anyway, the whole episode itself was pretty good. Sadly, we didn't have a flashback of James' Koffing.

    LOL I loved how TRio interrupted Oak's corner XDDD even more awesome is that they acted like their old self... <3 I almost wish for them to return to their old self in-show now... even though that would be ridiculous...

    I actually looked away from the screen for most of the battle since...I don't really care about gym battles.

    But holy craaaaaaaaap. When I decided to look back, all I saw was Iris violating Dento's face and I wasn't really sure what was happening and I cried because of how...close their relationship seemed. The BW group is so beautiful and no matter how shallow their stories may seem, I can't ignore the great lengths they went through to show their support for Ash. Move over, cheerleader Dawn, there's some new groupies in town~

    Sorry, Iris, but your sense of rhythm is a bit off...you tried though, you really did.

    But seriously, that scene is gonna be used in sooo many wishfulshipping amvs, I can see it.

    /cries more
    /should have slept tonight

    Uh, in terms of the actual...content of the battle? Uh...it was...okay, I guess. Homika gave away a lot of freebies like that heal to pignite and of course the ridiculous 3 v. 6 rule. I guess she's just trying to avoid the same fate as Volkner and challenge herself when she thinks she's "too hard" for the trainers...I guess she's having a lot fun doing it and wishes to put on a good show for her fans (a trait that other BW leaders seem to have). Respect, yo.

    EDIT: HOLY SHIT ROCKETTO DAN LIVE CASTER WHAT IS THIS AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

    Didn't find battle that interesting, well they did use venomshock and it's game effect double damage thing. Really liked when that hand was used to block that fire bledge W/e.
    And best part was Iris messing with Dent's face.

    Lol, did anyone notice that Homika gave Pecha berries to Satoshi, but not to the other challengers? So that's nice, apparently only winners get to have healthy Pokémon XD And wow, a strong Dogasu. What could be better?
    I liked the episode, in my opinion, it was the best gym battle in BW. I was hoping for a Hikari cameo at the end, but whatever.

    Yip. That was terrible. Ash looks no where near ready enough for the league. Not only did he need 6 pokes to beat her, but she even healed Pignite for him. A lot of the time he didn't seem to know what to do, I mean, razor leaf against Scolipede? Seriously?.

    Few moments were ok, mainly Leavanney beating Koffing, and when Pignite knocked Garbodors arm out from underneath it, but it just wasnt enough to save Ash from this sub par performance.

    man, that whole thing just left a really bad taste in my mouth. What a sad way to end the badge quest

    I think I'm just going to play that clip of the audience chanting "Do-ga-su! Do-ga-su!" whenever I need a self esteem boost.

    Also, in-character Rocket-Dan fuck yeah!

    Omg I love her.

    Love her over the top confident attitude, Homika is so much fun! She just looks badass with that guitar.

    It was a really entertaining battle. Usually battles don’t interest me that much to be honest, but this one held my attention the entire time.

    I loved it when Iris went to go play on that drum to cheer for Satoshi. (And Dento too!) It was a nice way to show support for her friend. I adore friendship moments like that. <3
