So Ash has a Gible, now. Sweet.
Looks like it was a pretty good episode.
So, spaghetti haired Mr. ADHD finally defeated main male character? But only his newy catched Pokemon! With his goddamned "mascot" thingy! Oh God, why writers have to make every male character from games cry? And why they have to shove the "mascots" into our eyes? Oh, sorry, DP was the SAGA OF MASCOTS.
OK, I hope this awesome butthead doesn't become the new bike-enemy and doesn't get a freakin' power level drop in every generation's start. I would cut myself if that were to happen. Electric rat is understandable as main male protagonist needs to kick games' male protagonists' ass and still be a newbie, and electric rat is franchise's bitch, but butthead isn't. However, I do hope the butthead evolves into Sharpedo and Tyranitar's lovechild. Sorry Gabite, you are cool but not strong and ugly as Sharpedo and Tyranitar's lovechild.
Anyways, for the episode:
-Butthead eats Rocket-dan's mecha, a whole city, and Jun's bike = win
-Trainer Jun used "Mega Thud". Rival Satoshi took lethal damage. Trainer Jun got recoil damage.
-Foe Jun used "ADHD Rage". His "ADHD Rage" grew throught the episode.
-Butthead and main male protagonist became BFFs. Aaaw. Butthead still used "om nom nom" on main male protagonist's head.
-Spaghetti hair wins this match. Writers really should make him a better rival in Filler Arc.
-Dejavu for Rocket-Dan. Same explosion twice an episode.
-Giovanni fantasy was decent.
Overall, episode was quite good.
I do not know why I am not getting more hyped over this. I mean, it is literally a dream come true for me. I have been dreaming Ash captures a gible since the start of Sinnoh. I even preferred gible over riolu. And it can not come in a better package - with dragon pulse and draco-meteor....
I should be more hyped....I really should be...
It's not over till it's over, as they love to say.
Anyone has doubts about what english VA will do Gible's voice? I'm thinking his name might begin with J followed by immy Zoppi...
But that's just me.
I hereby want to apologize for my rude behavior yesterday. Sorry!
I realized that I had slightly overreacted.
You see, I LOVE that Gible so incredibly much. It's undoubtedly one of THE GREATEST gifts to the Pokemon Anime ever (guess, what the second one is ;) ) and it truly was my most beautiful Christmas present. I just don't want it to be messed up by some writers far away in Japan who probably don't even care for a hardcore fan's feelings.
This pseudo-legendary Gible, together with its epic moves Dragon Pulse and Draco Meteor is literally a dream which has come true and we have to enjoy every single second of this overwhelming dream.
So, sorry for my overreaction and rantings. But at least one point of criticism remains (and I'm sure this one is indeed justified):
It wasn't my beloved Gible's fault! What were the writers thinking of when they decided that Gible would have to battle Empoleon?
I mean, a newly captured Pokemon which was probably still exhausted because of what Team Rocket had done to it before has to battle Barry's starter and thus STRONGEST Pokemon??
Writers, tell me one Pokemon who had to face a similarly difficult task? I can't think of any! How dare you do that do my dear Gible? :disgust:
Gible vs. Empoleon, that's basically just like 300 elite Spartians against one million Persians. How unfair!
Gible, they'll soon do you justice, I promise! You'll be the best of all of Ash's Pokemon!
Am i the only one who sees Gible staying a Gible? I can see him staying one of the more comedic Pokemon of the team, kind of like Gliscor was.
Cause it needs to win, or else it sucks cajones. Yes the infallible thinking of the fandumb wins again!
Gible its really cool and it don't suck, because Ash just caught it not to long ago, its not going to win a battle that fast when it its a newly captured Pokemon that haven't really been train as of yet.
