-Mitsumi vs Cynthia this early on? I have a funny feeling Cynthia's going to win here, and end up battling Hareta in the final round.
-Ahahaha Cynthia had them change the battle chart just to fight Mitsumi this early on.
-Hareta's crazy enough to sit in the front row seats when various attacks are exploding near them. And so is someone else, someone who appears to have stolen Silver's outfit.
-Mitsumi gives up. I called it...well, okay, I didn't think Cynthia would win THAT way, but still.
-Koya wins super fast against Jun. And tells him he's too weak to be training Pokemon.
-Flint appears to have stolen Gary's car & entourage from the anime's original series.
-Disco dancing Flint? ...well okay then.
-Rodeo time on Rapidash
? Oh dear.
-"This is no time to be HORSING around." Flint? I'm going to kill you.
-Hareta tries the usual battle tactics...except the tournement rules don't allow multiple Pokemon on the field at a time. Nor do they allow Hareta to fight himself.
-Hareta starts doubting himself...then gets a burst of righteous fury when he thinks about Koya's prickish words from earlier!
-Regigagas pulls through at last, Flint surrenders, blah blah. Fun fact:I had to look up his DP team to make sure that yes, he DID have a Steelix
before Plat came out.
-And we get our first glimpse of Hareta's dad in a flashback!
-Hareta vs Koya in the semifinals. This ought to be fun.
-Just when things are looking bad for Hareta, his Luxio
evolves into Luxray
-I spy, with my little eye...Hareta's dad in the stands! And the man LOVES his popcorn.
-"DOOM" is still my favorite manga sound effect.
-Hareta's having trouble against Mamoswine
, but I'm sure he has a bizarre plan coming up.
-Feeling where Mamoswine was instead of trying to see it in the hail? That...makes a lot of sense, actually.
-"Hansom"? So they sort-of-kind-of kept Looker's JP name?
-Oh god "Hansom"'s drawing of a TG grunt. Must. Not. Make. That. Into. New. Avatar.
-"I'm your dad!" "You're my dad" "Yup, your dad!" "Dad, it's you!"
-Suicidal TG grunts don't care about getting blown up.
-Hareta gets an egg from his dad before Kaisei has to run off to avoid "Hansom"
-In the special awesome bonus chapter...Cynthia's bored after having Mitsumi quit their battle and having the tournement canceled due to Neo Team Galactic.
-Mitsumi just wants to show off her Pokemon's beauty in contests, and we get a flashback about seeing Milotic
evolve and Rowan telling her she could escape TG.
-But Mitsumi can still crush Cynthia in battle...for fun!
-No, we don't get to see the battle.
-Ahahaha, the "you're reading the wrong way!" gag this time is great. "Quiet, son! You'll give away my surprise appearence!"
