    Default BW 111 "The New Gym Leader - Cheren!"

    The New Gym Leader - Cheren!



    Animation - Team Kato
    Screenplay - Akemi Omode
    Storyboard - Hiromasa Amano
    Assistant director - Yoshitaka Makino
    Animation director - Takashi Shinohara

    Satoshi and his friends have arrived in Hiougi City, where a new gym has been built! They head there to fight Cheren the Gym Leader, but...the Gym's a school!? It turns out that the Hiogi City Pokemon Gym is also a Trainer's School! Cheren, who's also one of the school's teachers, has only just gotten qualified to be a Gym Leader and has therefore not been able to open up the Gym yet. Later, Kibago wanders off to the PA room, causing a disturbance throughout the entire school...

    A nice episode, even if it was a little bit boring.

    Saw Oshawott losing a mile away. Why? Because he always loses.

    I love how this super Japanese school exists in what's supposed to be this franchise's version of New York City.

    Is it really that hard to do a Google image search to see what American schools look like?

    Why does it seems like the writers are hellbent on making Mijumaru into Pochama 2.0?! That was just embarrassing.

    It's literally like Cabernet and Pochama had a pokechild. I love(d) the little guy to death but the Moneymaru bandwagon is catching fire.

    Cheren's way different from what I expected, but I still liked the episode.

    Kibago's still fucking annoying, though.

    People should stop saying that Totodile is Ash's weakest Water-type Pokémon.

    Oh look, Oshawott lost. Man, I just can't believe it. /sarcasm

    Really, Oshawott became a tiresome Pokemon some time ago. To think I thought he'd actually amount to something lol.

    Man, I really enjoyed this episode! Almost everything up until Oshawott lost the gym battle for Ash.

    Cheren seems pretty cool, seems really caring towards the children and Pokemon but his Herdier is strong. Well, besides the loss pretty good episode!
    Ash and Pikachu fan all the way through!

    1. People wear shoes indoors, in what's supposed to be this franchise's version of Japan.

    2. These students are representing schoolboys/girls in the games. You can't be a schoolgirl/boy without uniform.

    3. How is that "super Japanese"?

    Bit exaggerated? I mean, lately he's been losing, but so have other Pokemon. Minus the Snivy and Cinccino battle, Snivy hasn't been on such a hot streak lately either.

    Oshawott isn't just for market purposes and a losing streak happens to a lot of Pokemon some time and I don't here people judging other Pokemon of Ash's, or other trainers.

    Axew wasn't the only one that stuffed up though.

    What, because Oshawott is? Yeah, Oshawott could beat Totodile IMO.

    A losing streak does not equal weak.

    Fixed.

    Because he lost in a battle that Ash didn't need to win? Yeah...totally.

    Wasn't a proper "gym battle for Ash" since Ash didn't need to win it and it was probably more for Cheren.


    Oshawott is weak? Huh? He only lost because he cares for his Scalchop and it was a move he was weak to.

    So, not winning a battle in a long time even though he's hardly has one in a long time = Oshawott being the weakest Pokemon? Uh...no. And, I'm not being bias, because I would say the same for Snivy, even though I don't really care for her lately, or any of Ash's Pokemon.

    Also, there could be some good reasons to him losing, like making Cheren look good, a new Gym Leader.

    Ya'll seriously need to calm to stop being so melodramatic.

    On a lighter note.

    And this.

    Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Pokemon Showcase! We're going to show as many old pokes and a few new ones as we can because evidently we're contractually obligated to do so. What? I know Osha was not the one to fight Herdier before, and this is a different Herdier, but COME ON. This is not that distant from the same flipping mistakes made back then, and you STILL can't overcome them? And to add insult to injury, Ash gets to fight a gym leader and for the first time EVER, he never defeats them. You're not making a good impression again, Episode N. Next is Plasma. That had better set up really well is all I can say.

    Based on what?

    I didn't imply that Oshawott was weak, but I do consider it to be weaker than Totodile is based on their track record. My point is that when the series started people automatically assumed that Oshawott would outclass Totodile, and yet that hasn't happened.

    They wear shoes inside public buildings (just like people in Japan do), but not when they're in someone's home.

    The layout of the school. The school in this episode looks almost identical to the real world Japanese schools I've been to over the years, from the layout of the place to the types of items (i.e. the vending machine) you see throughout. Nothing about Cheren's school says "Western" to me at all.

    No Team Rocket in this episode, so I guess they really aren't like they were pre-BW.
