Don't like Liepard so much, but that Hyper Beam was soooo f**king COOL.
Hahakomori having to get used to its appendages so it's not so awkward in battle), then what's stopping the writers from making up something just as easily?
But anyway, I think I might not matter all that much since there's a possibility we haven't considered.
Remember this scene in the episode...
It could be that the writers are trying to set up Ash giving away Kurumiru to Iris, by showing her already bond with it. Also Kurumiru's a wild child, just like Iris, both have been swing off vines and jump in trees. Kurumiru has shown to instantly like Iris, unlike Ash.
Plus, Dento, as a sommelier could indicate that Ash and Kurumiru aren't compatible in battle but Iris and Kurumiru are. That would explain why they're giving Ash such a redundant pokémon, maybe because he's not meant to keep it. :D
Sewaddle and its evolved forms, or you can stop watching if you're going to just continue complaining about it for the rest of the series.
HAHA! Hellion! It does seem fitting but I really don't think it'll happen. The bonding scene between Sewaddle and Iris was pretty short. They do surprisingly have that String Shot and vine swinging thing in common, though...
It is true that Dawn owned Piplup and Buizel, both Water types, at the same time and ended up trading one of them to Ash.
(I couldn't tell if you were joking or not, so I apologize in advance.)
Also, I've noticed quite a bit of this in this particular thread. If you're going to attack the person and not the argument, don't bother posting at all. I will start handing out infractions if this continues.
For now, I don't really care what they're going to do with sewaddle. I thought that the capture was pretty boring, but who knows? It could have more personality than, let's say, Tepig or Mamepato (although, I don't particularly like its "turtwig-like" demeanor...)
Sewaddle is pretty similar to Iris, so I guess I could see it going to her...not that I would really want it to XD I think that Iris should capture another pokemon instead...I'm don't really like inter-team trading :P
Sewaddle also connected with Arti and Pikachu too, so I don't see the reasoning behind it going to her steming from that one sequence as she did not interact with the bug again for the rest of the episode while Ash and Pikachu did.
Besides, let's assume this "trade" did happen, what would Iris give in return?
Nah, I'm certain Ash will keep the Sewaddle. I don't particular care for it but since he has it he might as well make some use of it.
i know! it's tottaly unfair!
Iris bonding with Sewaddle, that couple with the fact that they're both similar and would go great together.
I agree that it probably won't happen, but one can dream... that would remove
the stainSewaddle from Ash's team and give Iris a battle ready pokémon. Everyone's a winner!
I think that Iris should capture another pokemon instead...
But... that would require Iris to have a battle ready pokémon and that would also require Iris to abandon her sidelines standing duties and do something... That does not appear to be happening anytime soon.:D
I don't necessarily agree that Iris needs another capture right now, partially because I don't see what the writers could really give Iris. They're not going along with her in game team and she's not the last Gym Leader, so there's really no sense giving her a Crimgan when Shaga'll have one. Zuruggu would have made sense, but that's not happening. Maybe the first form of the dark/dragon pseudo-legendary that'll stay into its first form. But also, I think the writers needs to developp Kibago and have Iris make Doryuuzu obey before really thinking of giving her another pokémon. With her limited screen time and lack of battling, she really doesn't need a third member to her team at this point.
