The last episode of the 12th Season, Galactic Battles aired today and featured Ash catching the Gible he met back in the previous episode, "A Meteoric Rise to Excellence!" Might I say, this was indeed a nice ending to the season before we arrive to our last of the DP arc.

- Team Rocket in a NINJA BLASTOISE machine.
- ....
- Aw, too bad. Gible scrapped that pretty fast.
- Ash is always thinking of food.
- *poke*
- To be catched, or not to be catched
- Officer Jenny! Cue Brock's flirt moment.
- Gible eats EVERYTHING!
- Lol, Barry's grand entrance.
- 6 < 7
- Fantina's gone again, but she gives away tickets!
- Barry, you fail at catching Gible.
- Team Rocket goes green! At least they do to a degree.
- Can Ash really jump that distance?
- Oh look, there was a bridge. v_v
- ... And Ash gets an easy catch! Hoorah, Gible is no longer wild.
- Yes, Barry vs Ash, this should be fun.
- Gible puts up a good fight, but he's got to learn to listen.
- Lol, let the Piplup target begin.
- So, Ash loses to Barry for the first time.
- Barry is the best comedic rival ever!

... And there we have it folks. Discuss! I'm at least grateful that we don't have any lapse time before the Sinnoh League Victors season begins. They've decided to continue the anime straightforward, thank goodness. n_n;

LOL, beat me by three minutes. XD Err... Guess my thread can be closed.

Anyways, nice season finale! My favorite moments:

The whole period thing at the beginning.

Meowth: "Who 'dat?"

Ash: "Gible, don't EVER do that again!"
Gible: "....." *Bites Head*

Barry: "So how many badges have you won?"
Ash: "SEVEN OF 'EM!"
Barry: "Poor Ash, you've only got seven huh?"
Ash: "How many do you have?"
Barry: "Keep your shirt on... six, see!"
Ash: "Yeah, I see..."
Dawn: "Six is less than seven..."

Wow, I liked this episode! It was rather funny, especially in the beginning. Gible just ate that entire Ninja Blastoise robot, then it exploded!

Gible ate the playground area...and then Barry's free bike! Sucks for him...

"I'm going to fine you...You have ten seconds to pay up! Ten, nine, eight, seven,..."

I'm looking forward to seeing Gible working in Ash's team, despite the fact that it always likes to bite people's heads.

Poor Piplup and that failed Draco Meteor...once again...

Ash can't jump like that! There's no way! He must have had some help...AND a bridge was nearby (lol!). He could've at least used his Staraptor.

You know, I now want a land shark...like Gible. ^.^

9.2/10 (Because Gible is awesome and will make a great addition to the team!)

I freaking loved this episode, especially with Piplup getting Empoleon's slap of the failed draco meteor. XD; I laughed so hard.

An enjoyable episode, Gible's got a rock-on personality, and it looks like it'll bring some more funny moments with it. Oh, and anyone else love Empoleon's "what are you on?" face when Barry was going nuts? haha.

Also: I loved how Barry did complete overkill to take down Gible; Hydro Cannon and Hyper beam? XD; Sheesh. For the record, barry rocks. >:D

I really enjoyed this episode as well. The way Gible is portrayed is fantastic, I think he is my new favorite Pokemon just because of the last two episodes. Hopefully Ash will use him more throughout the rest of the season! I really liked the longer battle scene between Empoleon and Gible simply because it wasn't just Pikachu use volt tackle/iron tail. (End Battle) It was just more enjoyable overall. Barry's Empoleon is pretty much a beast as well. I want to see a rematch between Gible and Empoleon in the future!

^ Cartoon Network right guys?

Anyway, I love Dawn's one-liners every time that Barry joins the group. They should have a little segment after every episode with just these two hanging around each other. The ninja Blastoise was kind of cool but it was a bit "meh" for me. I am impressed about how quickly Gible has begun to annoy me though. Not even Gligar annoyed me this quickly so it's got that going for it.

I do like how Piplup ran away when he saw that Gible was going to use Draco Meteor again. As well as Empoleon's facial expressions when Barry did something stupid.

Didn't watch this in Japanese, so I was completely surprised by Barry's enterence :D Just Barry being in an episode, it makes it completely watchable. And I'm actually finding Gible funny now, rather than just annoying for giving Piplup more screentime. So everything's good.

- Hehehe, liked the "....." part XD
- Ick, don't like how Brock keeps going on about the Pokegear
- Hehehe, indecisive Gible is so funny XD
- BARRY :DDDDDDDDDDD I didn't know he was in this episode! :D
- See, that crash with Ash...why didn't it happen with Paul??
- Barry: *to Ash* Keep your shirt on. Ash/Barry shipping has officially been disproved
- Dawn: 6 is less than 7
o_______o
- So, Barry actually got a free bike...
- Barry's scream at Gible XDD
- Hahahaha, Barry just goes straight in there to catch it, stupid Ash, it's just as Barry says, first come, first serve ~
- Barry: I FORGOT TO CATCH IT
LOL
- What is with Ash's jump o.o I knew he could jump a lot, but, really??
- Barry again :D
- Yay, I hope Emploleon wins :D Will be annoyed if he doesn't
- Haha, Piplup's already scared of Draco Meteor
- And it hits :D And Barry's happy it hit Piplup XDD
- Love Barry's face when Gible bites its hand XD

I'm personally glad Barry turned up again. I thought it was pathetic when we only saw him for roughly 3mins.

I hope he battles Ash 6 vs. 6 in the Sinnoh League, and takes out Pikachu with Empoleon without taking any damage. Then gets pwnd by Torterra.

That's what got me. And he didn't realize that there was a bridge a few yards away that Brock and Dawn saw! Anyone else notice that? I didn't think he could gain that much speed, either!

This to-be-Garchomp has sealed Paul's fate. XD

I'm pretty annoyed. Ash should have caught Gibble a lot earlier in the series and evolved it into Garchomp (yes I know he still had Gliscor, but, whatever).

I just finished watching this episode, they finally made a decent one too :D
I like the battle, it was entertaining to watch and was very unpredictable of who was going to win it.
Over all this episode was great.

I love, love, love this episode.
So many LOL Moments in this episode.
Gibble eating Barrys bike muhahaha!!!
Poor Ash he passed out after being hit by Barry's bike, he didn't seem to care sadly.
I love Ash and Barry's interactions there just so LOL.
While Ash and Pauls rivalry is more intense Ash and Barry's is more funny.
I can't wait for Ash and Barry to meet up in the league.
I've seen Ash jump high places before, but my God. Its like he has some sort of supper power or some thing. No way, normal human could make that big of a jump.
Another thing I loved was Gibbile eating Team Rockets machine and blasting them off before meeting Ash and co. LOL.
Pipulp getting abuse, best Pipulp moments ever!

5/5 from me.
