    Gonbe's Battle Debut! Harley and Taking the Game Seriously!
    *Jaw Drops*

    FINALLY. Gonbe actually does something.

    Considering the attacks it has shown off already, I was surprised it kept getting looked over for all the contests. I'd simply put it down to a lack of definite move-set for the Pokemon.

    Although, it might not actually win.... But oh well.

    Well, win or lose, Gonbe still will do something and will not get out of the scene the whole episode...so maybe this episode will be based only on Gonbe in action....
    *hopes that Gonbe won't evolve in that episode*

    Why would it evolve? Munchlax's whole point is advertising DP, if it evolves it loses that purpose.

    Agreed, the same reason why Manene will never evolve. They're not going to turn a 4th gen Pokemon back into an old RBY Pokemon again. That defeats the whole point of them being on the show to begin with. Besides, doesn't May have enough of Ash's Pokemon as it is? Why would you want to see another Snorlax? Sheesh.

    Anyway Harley better win this one to redeem himself. He's lost against May 3 times already, if we are to take him as a serious rival he actually needs to win. May needs a loss too this region, hopefully this will be it.

    Munchlax can't take over the world with over-publicity if it's not a Munchlax any more. ^^ Simple as that, lol.

    Don't be stupid. If it happened to become a Snorlax, it could easily devolve back into merchandise-whore again. It is one of May's Pokémon.

    My theory is May wins, because despite Harley battling much more effectively the light bar for Munchlax just refuses to go down by any substantial amount. Then at the grand festival we learn Kanto Festivals are run by the Rockets and they've been fixing matches to get May there. Then something watchable goes on. Preferably with Weezing coming back and learning Thunder.

    Of course, it'll never happen.

    This is one of those few times I agree 100% with you.

    I sincerely hope Haruka gets her ass handed to her this time. After that disgusting victory with Zenigame it would be nigh unbearable to watch Gonbe defeat Harley as well.

    If Harley is taking things seriously, then he has a very good chance.

    I wonder if he will use a new Pokémon or one we have already seen.

    Gonbe no Debut Ikusa! Harley and Shinkenshoubu!!

    Gonbe's Debut Battle! Harley and Bout with Real Swords!!

    The last is the hyper literal translation, any of the less literal translations aren't wrong, far from it, they just continue on the metaphor, seeing as I doubt there will be swords in the battle. The general concept of Shin (Real) Ken (Swords) Shoubu (Victory/defeat, match, contest, game, bout) is up to you, but basically, Battle in Earnest seems to make sense, or the dictionary combined form: (n) fighting with real swords; game played in real earnest; ED.

    Anyways, I talk far too much, especially in answer to such a simple question, but I hope that clarifies things!

    Why do I now have a mental image of Gonbe munching on a Leek?

    TR usually gets written out of the one-part contest eps, so I'm guessing Jessie won't be competing in this one.

    I wonder how May would react if Harley rubs his win in her face.
