Yep, I think it's Ash's Gible. I wonder if Ash will give it to her.
YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID!
I certainly don't like the idea of a non-trade trade. There's no way Ash is getting Excadrill in exchange, so it'd be Ash basically giving up and saying that he can't handle the Dragon type that he did a brilliant job of raising.
Hopefully it is just that Iris has met it, grabbed it and is making a run for the end zone, but I don't hold much hope she won't be leaving with Gible (or for it to be a random wild Gible), which I think sucks.
Perhaps if Ash had even once mentioned to Iris about Gible previously it could be easier to accept. At least give me a scene of Iris recognising Ash's strength and ability in training a Dragon to be that strong.
I think it is Ash's Gible, hope Ash takes Gible with him to Kalos
And again, why do people think this is Ash's Gible?
Guys, there's something I'd like to point out...
This battle is taking place at Fusube Gym... Iris is going to Johto. I don't think there's any danger of Satoshi's Fukumaru being given to her.
I know all your secrets!
BECAUSE I AM THE SPYPITOAD!
