    And after Ash beats Paul, its all downhill from here.

    I hope the next fight starts at the end of this ep.

    Ever since Paul debuted in DP3 way back in 2006.
    *raises hand*

    Which is why I think the three part battle is a nice idea...
    I would hate for that battle to be shafted just to get a few more Ash battles with random characters we'll never see again :(

    You can't say that for sure until the next episode airs.

    It's interesting to see Ash battle a legendary pokemon in a Pokemon League. How is that downhill?

    Nah, Ash hasn't faced the semi-finals or finals yet. This will be the first. Ash's league-rival Tyson from Hoenn ended up winning the Ever Grande Conference.

    What's exciting about Ash battling a legendary when we know he will lose?

    This isn't a glorification moment, its a cheap way to have Ash lose another tournament. Instead of Ash losing because someone was more skilled, he's losing because of a cheap legendary.

    We know that Ash is going to beat Paul and I still find it exciting.
    I dunno, maybe Darkrai's overhyped and he'll use another pokemon to bring him down. The ep hasn't aired yet, I want to wait a bit before jumping to conclusions ^^;

    Oh FACK. I just realized that today is Wednesday and the episode airs tomorrow! *hits self*

    Speaking of tomorrow's preview of the Darkrai episode, the only thing that could make up for Ash losing to this bastard is.....

    -Quilava is used and defeats one of Takuto's other pokemon having a great battle.
    -Possibly pokemon like Charizard or Snorlax are used.
    -Epic battle between Herracross and Darkrai.
    -Darkrai is defeated!
    -Takuto loses the league or is disqualified.

    Isn't it fair to say that Takuto is skilled just for catching a legendary?

    I agree! They should've had a trainer like Tyson for Ash to lose to.

    Everyone pray that Paul will compete in the Isshu region as well.The rivals Ash had weren't impressive.

    Nah, Paul's story is over. The rivalry will be stale if it continued for year another 200 episodes.

    Also with Infernape being Oak'd, there's just no point.

    So what do you like. Do you like continuity or do you like freshness?

    Getting rid of Paul, never to be seen again, would be the freshness. Doesn't matter how cool or used to we get to characters, once it's a new season, time is up for 'em.

    Continuity would be keeping the same stuff over and over again, without any change what so ever. Same characters, same plot.

    What if Pokemon was a series that completely changed its characters and plot each time a new one started up? Is that your preference, or do you like that Ash is the central character and forms a cast of people he knows and interacts with?

    You know, the E4 had to beat the league to get that status in the first place :/
