Yes, yes yes! :D Finally, the gym battle. I want to see a good battle, that's more action than talking. I really want to see Roggenrola in this battle. iirc from recent episodes, he hasn't had much development. Knowing Ash; he'll want to challenge himself and use Oshawott/Tranquill. I would also like to see Scraggy battle. C:

Not only no development but no appearances. We haven't seen him since BW039 Fossil Revival! Ancient Mysterious Bird Archen!! So it's been quite awhile since we have seen an appearance much less development. And even in his last appearance putting out a fire with Sandstorm along with Oshawott using Water Gun is not really what I would call development. I think Roggenrola needs some screen time and battles for sure, so I hope he is in the battle or at the very least battles against Ingo & Emmet. I sure hope he doesn't use Tranquill. I want to see 3 on 3 Roggenrola, Swadloon, and any one of the follow (Snivy, Scraggy, Pikachu). Tepig has been in every gym battle, Oshawott has enough screen and battle time not to mention already has 2 gym battles under his belt. I think Palpitoad got some good development in Don Tournament, it would seem logical from a typing stand point but I just don't get the feeling this will happen. And Tranquill I am just not feeling it being in this match.

I'm very, very much looking forward to this battle. I would rather like to see some Pokémon that haven't had much spotlight in this episode. Roggenrola seems like a perfect choice, mentioned before, he hasn't had much development and a type advantage. I think Ash might take his chances and give Scraggy a chance in a first gym battle, considering it's learned that new move. Though, I could see it loosing anyway from a miss and taking damage. I do expect this to be a three on three, so I could see either Pikachu or Palpitoad take on Elesa's Zebstrika.

Actually Roggenrola is a Rock type not Rock/Ground, so he will be affected by electric types..

Emolga is Electric/Flying, so maybe that's what he meant since Elesa has two Emolga. Which I hope they would sub in a Tynamo.

Yeah that's what I ment.

I have to agree on changing one of those Emolga to a Tynamo though, we've had way too much of Iris's Emolga already.

I could see Scraggy vs. Tynamo. I think Ash would be crazy too use it against her Zebstrika as it's just working into becoming a viable pokemon on the team. I think Snivy could take it out since it didn't do too bad against Gothitelle in BW019. Only bad thing is Zebstrika is rolling with Flame Charge so it could hit hard against Swadloon and Snivy. Then it do the damage to Oshawott and Tranqull. If Ash is smart or the writers don't want him to have too much of a challenge they will have him use Palptoad, but I got the feeling that may not happen. Either way I think we need to see Roggenrola here or Swadloon they have got no love in terms of screen time at all.

Summary, from bluesun;
"Satoshi, whose Gym battle team Members exclude Pikachu, opposes Kamitsure's "Thunder, Lightning Pokemon", Zebraika, with his "Shocks Pokemon", Gamagaru, who is not affected by Electric Attacks"

Well, it seems Pikachu will not be used, and Palpitoad will - pretty much what everyone else assumed anyway.

Well I am glad it's not another Electric vs. Electric thing again. For me they can just have Pikachu battle again at Skyla gym. And Palpitoad being in this I approve of (=.

The Magnificent Gym Leader, Kamitsure appears. Kamitsure specialises in using the electric type.
BW49: Raimon Gym's Gym Leader is the favourite model, Kamitsure. Satoshi wants to battle, but Bel's father is in the Gym... With her father wanting to take her back home, Kamitsure proposes that she and Bel battle, and to take Bel back if she loses.
BW50: Satoshi is practicing tactics prior to his Gym Battle. In order to counter Kamitsure's electric-type Pokemon, he drops Pikachu from his team, and Pikachu becomes unhappy. And the Gym battle starts with Satoshi using Gamagaru.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...org2018502.jpg
BW49: Satoshi and friends have come to Raimon City to get the fourth badge. In the Gym, the favourite model who controls electric-types serves as a Gym Leader. Bel wants to hurry and challenge her, but on the Field her father is waiting to take her back.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...org2018503.jpg
BW50: Satoshi is practicing tactics prior to his Gym Battle. In order to counter her powerful Electric-typed Pokemon, he makes up a team which excludes Pikachu, and Pikachu who was ready to battle gets depressed. In the Gym Battle, Satoshi counters with Gamagaru, who Electric-typed techiques do not work upon.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...org2018737.jpg
BW49: In order to get the fourth badge, Satoshi and friends, and Bel, come to Raimon Gym. In Raimon Gym the Gym Leader is the electric-type Pokemon controller, the favourite model Kamitsure. But. Bel's father waited in the Gym. Bel's father tells her to stop her adventuring and return home.
BW50: Satoshi is practicing tactics to oppose Kamitsure's fearsome Electric-type Pokemon, and so makes up a team which doesn't include Pikachu who cannot deal much damage to Kamitsure's Pokemon. But, Pikachu who was ready to battle gets upset. And the battle starts.

This will be the first time Pikachu isn't used in the electric gym. Finally other pokemon can get some development in battle. I feel like Ash is going to use dangoro for this gym too.

Glad the recent scans show Tynamo is Elesa third pokemon(screw another Emolga).

And I am also happy with the earlier news Pikachu was going to be excluded now if they could promise Oshawott and Tepig are excluded I would also be happy. Palpitoad needs to get some! Kill me some Emolga plox.

Knew they'd give her a Tynamo, instead of another friggen Emolga.

Tynamo looks a bit freaky, doesn't it? ;-; I mean, usually they look quite calm but hers looks like it's ready to kill someone. I haven't looked into this battle much. Besides Palpitoad, do we know of Ash's team yet? :3

Hoping that Snivy and Roggenrola are the other two.

Tynamo looks pissed, and yeah this is just a repeat of the Don Tournament pokemon. Ash was initially going to exclude Pikachu from the match then Pikachu felt bad so Ash said what heck and let him take part to make him feel better.

Well here's the preview


By the looks of it Palpitoad beats Zebstrika with mud shot. Then Emolga beats Palpitoad with attract. Snivy then faces emolga now either Emolga wins or they end up in a draw. Then Pikachu comes up vs Tynamo and could go either way, but Tynamo was owning Pikachu in the preview but then again we don't have any training/gym rematch episodes coming anytime soon so looks like Pikachu somehow wins.

My guess is it starts out Palpitoad vs. Zestrika. Palpitoad wins with either Mud Shot or Hydro Pump. Then Emolga comes out uses attract, Palpitoad is infatuated and can not attack so Emolga takes advantage of this and wins against Palpitoad, Ash decides to use Snivy to to neutralize Emolga Attract, Emolga uses Volt Switch on Snivy, and Ash chooses Pikachu. Pikachu proceeds to out speed Emolga and then follow up with Electro Ball defeating Emolga. Elesa sends out Tynamo, Ash stays with Pikachu. Tynamo works over Pikachu and Pikachu manages a few hits before it goes out. So a weakened Tynamo vs. a weakened Snivy bam Snivy comes out in the end victory goes to Ash.

So in Snivy's first gym battle she gets knocked around, I feel like Snivy might pull a Charmeleon if she evolves because she just gets the super short end of the stick these past few appearances.

I was quite disappointed with how easily Ash beat Zebstrika, Judging by Bianca's problems with it.

Palpitoad didn't exactly make short work of it. But yeah kind of funny how it seems her team and Ash takes it out with Palpitoad(which was clearly fatigued after the battle). Talk about a poor showing from Snivy, she barely put up much of a fight against Emolga. Then Pikachu comes in all po'ed and takes it out with Quick Attack then follows up be swatting down Tynamo with Iron Tail Pika was a mouse on a mission.

I loled when Ash left the gym battle to go get snivy just because she has attract and then when he got back and told snivy to use attract it was unaffected on Emolga.

What else was kind of funny is he was coming up with a battle plan for once before the match. Ash you don't need to sit there on the bed trying for formulate what you are going to use Ground>Electric end of story. I can't help but feel Snivy is going to want to get some retribution for it's failure against Elesa(hoping it takes it's frustrations out on Iris Emolga xD.) The physical comedy of Ash was pretty funny as well. I have to give it too Pikachu, outside of both it and Ash underestimating Tynamo speed he pretty much dominated. Pikachu goes out both him and Emolga neutralize Electro Balls, then Pikachu only needed one Quick Attack to bring it down, then it only needed a since hit from Iron Tail to bring down Tynamo, which I assume the Thunderbolts were used as a smokescreen affect?
