Reminder, please do not post any links or Youtube Videos to the full episodes. You're clip to the preview was fine though.

Onto the preview, and I'm keeping this in spoilers since it's like huge news for me...
Spoiler:
Was that Sceptile? OMG, that was Sceptile! You have no idea how this lightens up my face. The appearance of Sceptile seemed slim considering all the reserves he had. Then again, I guess knowing Sceptile is one of Ash's major powerhouse Pokémon it deserved some action in the Sinnoh League. I give props to Ash finally making right decisions.

As for the battle against Takuto. He doesn't look so bad anymore, at least not since his first close up shot. Darkrai will definitely be a challenge. Though, I'm hoping Ash defeats it but loses to a Gen V Pokémon. It only seems reasonable enough to introduce a new Pokémon and not have the writers leave the impression that Darkrai is an unbeatable Legendary compared to the rest.

This was a wonderful battle and all, but I can't wait for the next one. Sceptile, Torkoal, and Heracross? Awesome! Pikachu was expected, but does Ash really have to use Gible again? I hate that thing. I think those are the only Pokemon shown in the preview, so maybe they're purposely keeping Ash's 6th member a secret? *Crosses fingers for Charizard.*

Spoiler:
Did anyone notice Takuto looked extremely pissed off at Ash near the end of the preview? I still believe it's Zoroark, so either he unveils the charade, or it is Darkrai and defeats it, only to be wiped out by another.) (Or even double KO Darkrai with Pikachu as his last pokemon, but Takuto is declared winner, as he only lost 1 pokemon to Ash's 6 or something)


I'm watching DP188, I will edit this post with my opinions on it after I've seen it. XD I posted my opinion on the DP189 preview in spoilers.

I luff <3 Electrivire! But why would you expect it to floor 3 Pokemon? >!<

I hate how Ash kept switching out, not fair on Pail >!<

Wobuffet was funny here.

I actually felt a little sorry for Pikachu there xD

Ash batled well.

OMG PAUL COULD HAVE WON! Just one more shot at Infernape e__O

Aww, Paul did well in defeat

Ash just had to make the awkward scene happen ;

Well, it's good to know that it was Blaze that made Ash win. Justifying.

Imma miss Paul

Lol. Ash was one bad match-up from the final xD

Also, why Darkrai? So the Zoroark speculation is very probably.

*likes the ending credits song*

I actually liked this episode

*still sad about Paul*

It's like Ash knows he's going to loose to Takuto... I hope that's one episode and one only x__x

End, scene.

^ It is. Then there's 2 more episodes, and done with D/P >_>;

And all your comments about Blaze being the only reason: It was to show paul that you can't just abandon a pokemon because they aren't strong to begin with, you need to train and grow with them. Chimchar couldn't control Blaze, and Paul couldn't help him control it, or even get Chimchar to evolve. Ash managed both. That was the major thing about Infernape and Paul.

I loved, loved this episode. I loved Ash defeating Paul, it had good animation and good music. I loved that scene between Ash and Paul during the sun set, seemed a little ComashippyXD I also liked how Barry turned into an Ash fan, Colideshipping FYI LOL. Than Dawn turning into a fan girl of Ash after he won was freakin fun, every thing was just epic! I can't wait till next weeks episode either
Spoiler:
Ash using his AG Pokemon, wow I never even imagined he'd do that this year. I was think he'd save those for next years league. On top of all that, Ash turns his hat backwards in the episode, I love that eeek!!

Man this episode was AMAZING!!!! HD was greatly used as well!
Infernape was AMAZING!!! I liked that bit at the end of the battle, with the heartbeats racing and the white background lol!

Can't wait for the next episode, preview looks great hes going to use sceptile :D:D:D:D:D By the looks of things I don't think Ash will be able to defeat Takutos darkrai in the preview it looked like ash was using most of his team against it, so either most of them fainted or he keeps switching!
There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

By the looks of things, seems like we'll see the return of the classic "backwards Ash hat." (Yeah. it's minor but interesting since we haven't seen it since Johto)...

I know I'm using it as my avatar and I'm just going crazy over that scene I can't wait for it. I'm hopping they use some good music during that part cuz its been forever since we've seen it.

Did anyone else find it really unfair how much more time Infernape got with the judge than Eletivire did?

Beware: Caps lock

- Oooh, movie 11 music
- Elekible got strong o.O
- Shinji looks happy at Glion's pain D: Or at least satisfied
- Ouch that Ammer Harm (I think) look painful D:
- Pikachu couln't win when it was Elekid...lets see how this goes..
- Jumupu da!! XD
- IKEEEE
- Wow, Sounansu's making an appearance
- Shinji's hair is moving again :D
- Satoshi, why did you go in with Volt Tackle??
- Elekible looks scary using ThunderPunch O_O
- OH SATOSHI SMIRK??
- So it didn't work out for Satoshi o.o
- Silly Satoshi, Pikachu isn't strong enough in comparison
- I FEEL SORRY FOR PIKACHU, WOW THAT WAS INTENSE DDDDDDD:
- PIKACHUUUUUUUUU I feel sorry for you there!!
- Why is Hikari happy??
- I *loved* that scene with Satoshi holding the Pokeball out
- Why isn't Reiji at the match?
- I love how aathletic Goukazaru looks compared to Elekible
- STOP TALKING THROUGH THE MATCH, TAKESHI
- Wow, Goukazaru's gotta be out after that...0_O
- It's gotta be out now o_O Why'd they take so long?
- OH NO, DON'T DIE AGAINST SHINJI D:
- Wow, Type:Wild isn't a song I'd exect to hear at the league
- LOL random explosion on Elekible made me laugh
- WOW, cool widescreeness O_O
- WHAT?? They gave Gouzakaru a REALLY long time to get back up!! I'M ANNOYED
- Aww! I love Shinji smiling!
- Wait, what, so this isn't the finals?? The other two are filler characters which probably means he'll lose at semi0final?? NOOOOO
- COMASHIPPY STARE!!
- And now Shinji's going to be shipped off in a boat, NOOOO
- Shinji better come back some time!!

Wow, I really don't think I like Iris's voice >_<
- Rock gym at the start again?? o.O

- omg, it really is all his Pokemon against that stupid Darkrai >__<
- WOW HE HAS HIS HAT SWIVVELLED AROUND, WHEN'S THE LAST TIME HE DONE THAT??

I was unsure if the part about Ash having his hat swivelled around deserved spoilers

I don't know if I didn't pay attention to my science teacher but, no organism can even survive that amount of electricity for so much time.

Oh well, the battle ended nicely. Now just one more week until we see how Ash pulls his loss. I'll be at school that Thursday so you can count on me screaming and ranting.

Poor Bayleef and Totodile. They are not going to be used in Ash's final Sinnoh League matchup.

I think it's pretty obvious what happens next. Ash loses to Takuto, who is then one-shotted in the finals by that guy with the Hyper Beaming Magikarp. That's right, folks, you heard it here first.



(okay, so it's unlikely, but it's funny as heck and it'd be the best brick joke ever)

They didn't show all six of his pokes in the preview so he could possibly use either of them. I would be sad if Darkrai swept Ash's whole team.

Since I'm not sure if we can talk openly about what was in the preview...
Spoiler:
THey showed 5.

Pikachu, Sceptile, Torkoal, Heracross, and Gible.

My money is on Corphish or Totodile (Sceptile already covers his Grass type). Or even Buizel. (The weasel needs to evolve already ._.)

Or they can throw a curveball and have him use Muk or Kingler.

Sigh...

There goes my favourite character in the whole series.
But I'm happy that he didn't undergo "character development", just a departure like that was fine.

I am seriously going to cry when the DP series in my place chases up to this episode, which will DEFINETELY take two years or more. Well, at least I get to "reminiscene" his battles with Satoshi.

Imagine if Ash stuck his whole herd Tauros in 6 pokeballs, then sent them out against Darkrai....Takuto would be pwnd.

It'd be cool if he used Muk. Especially if it just, sort of, hugged Darkrai to death

What's the bets Takuto has a Cresselia aswell? Or he is a Cresselia....I'm really shocked Darkrai isn't causing nightmares....

I reckon Gible is gonna evolve and beat Darkrai then Ash will have to fight the other five Pokemon with his new Gabite and the secret sixth Pokemon *cough cough* Snorlax *cough cough*. It's pretty unlikely that Darkrai takes down his whole team, he managed to beat an Articuno in a one vs one battle.

Doesn't a Legendary Pokemon get nerfed when it's captured in a pokeball which is why none of the villains every try that method not even in the games.
