Yes it would seem that Pignite did. I like the animation of it as well.
As for the episode itself Suwama struck me as a jackass like the other Fire types that have been released i.e. Charmander and Chimchar. Especially considering he was faking that he cared. I am quite happy though that Pignite got his victory and snuffed Suwama in the end. I don't get the feeling Suwama will be back, he feels more character of the day then anything.
