There, she meets her dorm mother from her days at the Soryu Academy and the academy's Axe Jaw Pokemon, Onondo. Through the reunion, new feelings are ignited in Iris.

    When it first battled Shaga, Doryuzu closed his heart from Iris as he was opposed to her self-indulgence..... This time, they'll win through their combination! Iris uses her full power and faces Shaga! The Subterrene Pokemon Doryuzu has a revenge battle against the Axe Jaw Pokemon Ononokusu! Just what will happen!?

    just some info from the scan: as a child iris went to souryuu city to study to be a dragon master and got into school, but couldn't adapt to a classroom enviroment. shaga went to ask for help from the old woman of the dragon village. shaga hoped iris would become very strong one day.

    Wow, I'm so super excited for this battle, or rather this episode overall. Great to see that Dragonite isn't stealing away Haxorus from Excadrill, but insteads get to battle Druddigon. I only hope that Axew will get to have a battle too, even though it probably will be very one-sided. I seriously can't wait.

    I just won't be able to get past Iris using Dragonite in this battle with almost no time in between these episodes for her to properly resolve/train it. Hopefully it goes away after this episode to be trained by Drayden.

    I'm really excited to see Shaga in the anime in real time as compared to a flash back, and I'm curious as to how the city will be depicted.

    Nice to see that she's going to use Doryuzu for this battle, especially.

    So...the OTHER thing we've been waiting this whole saga for. Now the circle is complete. Everything the intro showed us has come to pass.

    We all knew it was going to happen eventually, after all, this was foreshadowed for months now. It's nice we get to see Excadrill battle again, as it's been a while since we last saw him, but it's nice for a change of pace after the constant Dragonite-fest that's been going on for the past few episodes.

    All that's left is the league, and we're done with Unova completely, but then what will happen next (asides from the obvious "Gen 6" answer)...

    I hope that Iris vs. Drayden will be a 3-on-3 battle, and that the third pokemon she will be using is Axew.

    You would think that the person who was indirectly responsible for giving Iris her Axew would want to battle that said Axew.

    Still not entirely sure what battling Drayden with Excadrill says about Iris' "Dragon Master" goal. I suppose Excadrill battling Haxorous takes precedence over Axew battling Drayden. Technically would have made more sense if it was Axew/Dragonite vs Druddigon/Haxorous. Poor Axew, will he ever get used in a serious battle again? Last one he was in was over 50 episodes ago.

    It makes sense as to why she's using Doryuz: Shaga saw how strong it could be when it first evolved and battled his Haxorus. Now he can see how far Iris has gone. But I still hope for an Axew battle. If not, it learning Giga Impact would feel pointless.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Yeah, but still...what would, hypothetically speaking, beating Haxorous with Excadrill say about Iris' "Dragon Master" goal? Axew is being relegated to the sidelines again (isn't that like, her main goal? XD), and her "spoon-fed" powerhouse, that she really hasn't put much work into or trained is being used here as well. Granted, Excadrill and Dragonite being used here does make sense. But, IMO, it would have had alot more meaning if she had trained up both Axew and Dragonite(from Dratini/Dragonair) to make her potential victory here have more meaning.

    I don't know about him taking Dragonite away but it would be cool if Drayden seens her off somewhere to train. Dragons Den or something like that would be perfect for her. She really does need the training.
