    i was wondering to make a new thread about the new trainer but after reading this i suppose not

    Spoiler:
    It makes sense that Takuto would breeze through the gyms, who wouldn't be able to with a darkrai, sleep and sweep, he's uber for a reason. i think its a first that a legendary is participating in a league such as this (though technically articuno was first in the battle frontier, but that's a different story)


    Charizard should make an appearance no? He's been in EVERY league match that Ash has had so far, i don't think the producers are gonna stray far from tradition....right?

      It's been discussed here already. First off Charizard was not in the intro to Sinnoh League Victors which could be a hint that it will not be used. Second, Charizard didn't appear in the Hoenn League which means that he has not made an appearance in every league match. And lastly, Sinnoh is pretty far away from Johto. I think it is too far for Charizard to fly there (ofcourse they could transport the pokeball but they have never done that before).

          Having Charizard would make sense because he is the only pokemon in Ash's team that has ever taken down a legendary pokemon before (Articuno)... He is more than just a fire pokemon as he is also a flying pokemon and maybe could give Darkrai a ride for his money... But as people said, I don't think Charizard will make an appearance.

          I am interested in this trainer though... Does he only have Darkrai or will he have others? I'd be very interested in seeing him only use Darkrai, but I just don't see that happening...

            I'm wondering that too. They have focused on this trainer for weeks and I don't think they would just have Darkrai sweep through Ash's team. I'm thinking either he sends out Darkrai and decides to switch out to test Ash (because maybe he considers him a worthy challenger, or maybe he decides to hold off on sending out Darkrai till the end for some reason. Anyways, I hope they do show his other Pokemon.

            If he has any other Pokémon.

            ... I think he does though, considering this is a 6 on 6 match and Takuto would need another Pokémon in order to capture Darkrai as his own. Unless, Darkrai chose to travel with him free willingly.

                I can't tell you how funny it'd be if Takuto owned all 6 of Ash's Pokemon with just Darkrai.

                Or even better, he has 6 Darkrais!

                  I wonder... Does the Pokemon League not require you to have at least six Pokemon for six on six match?
                  Or could you enter the whole tournament with just one if you wanted?
                  These questions were never answered in the anime canon, were they?

                  Besides, someone winning against six Pokemon while just using one would be too unrealistic, as Ash has actually clearly beaten at least two Legendary Pokemon already.

                  Moreover, there was this thought that crossed me earlier - what if Takuto is just an illusion created by Darkrai?

                  ... Thatd be weird. Darkrai using the Trainer as a guise. He couldnt make him solid, how could he pick up the badges?

                      With Gyms you must have more than 1 if it is 3 on 3 (or more). I would guess the same rule applies. If they did allow Takuto to enter with just 1 then it would be unfair. Think about it, if people were allowed to enter with only 1 or 2 then their opponents would have less pokemon to defeat while others have to go through 3 , 4, or 6. Even if they were really strong, it still isn't fair to everyone. But you're right, we don't know completely, but I would guess that it does apply.

                      And Quilava was still presented as Cyndaquil and they changed that. The point is it is still highly unlikely Charizard will show in the Sinnoh League.

                        He probably does have 6... he just never carries them because he does not need them.

                        Remember, in the game you can just enter with 1 pokemon.

                          ???? I never said it was impossible but I just think that it is not likely for him to show.

                            I think that GFA should calm the **** down because no one cares for his petty insults.

                            That wasnt an insult ...

                            Anyway ... Yeah. Charizard maybe far away, but he's got a larger move-pool, which is reason enough for him to bring Charizard back

                            Charizard was not in the opener, he's very distant from Sinnoh, and Gliscor pretty much took the "returning" moment away. It's not impossible, but it's very unlikely that Charizard is going to make a return for this series to compete in the Sinnoh Conference. So, I'd just give it a rest for now as bringing it up every time isn't going to help much. If he comes back, then that's great you could go bouncing off the walls telling us "I told you so! I told you so!" but for right now there's no sign of him returning so just keep calm and keep watching.

                            Charizard is officially not Ash's only fully evolved Fire Type. Infernape has come about and it could change things. Seeing as how heavily focused Chimchar was throughout the show he could easily replace Charizard's return as well. So, again there wouldn't be much need for Charizard to appear this time.

                            Also, you seem to complain and shoot down every new thing that's been being released recently. From the Sinnoh League episodes, the new anime characters, to the new features and Pokémon in Black and White. Maybe you should try keeping an open mind every once in awhile and try to enjoy things. Don't knock it, till you've tried it.

                            It's okay to voice your opinion, but don't voice it to where you're simply bashing things down, and then when someone says you are, you come up and say you aren't. Clearly, you are. So, just calm down, voice your opinion to where it reaches its point but doesn't go beyond that, and maybe try to keep and open mind on things and just have fun. You're not working for Pokémon so don't try and change something that isn't going to happen. Be satisfied on what you get or just don't get it at all.

                            I don't mean to sound rude or direct, but I've been watching you for awhile now and it seemed you needed some kind of verbal warning somehow. I just want to help you stay out of trouble is all; if you can do that, please.

                            Ive had my warning, so its fine ;P

                            Infernape's type combination actually makes sense I suppose for fighting Darkrai, but it's got too be way under-leveled compared to Charizard. Then again the Anime doesnt seem to actually take levels into consideration so ... Hmmm.

                            After seeing Ash get humiliated by Paul in the 6-on-6, I'm excited to see Ash get some sweet, long awaited revenge on Paul. I think he's gonna win, but if not, oh well. He's still gonna do a number on Paul—more than before. Those are my thoughts; anyone agree?

                            Meh. He'll probably win. Too much hype on the Darkrai trainer for him not too.

                            He should loose, as he hasn't gotten that much better since the 6v6, but the foreshadowing says he'll beat Paul.

                              Ash will win. No doubt. I don't think there's much reason to believe Paul will win. In fact, that isn't even what I'm really interested in right now.

                              What I am really curious about, is Takuto. Overhyped? Maybe. But still, it's an extremely intriguing twist. The two ideas I've heard that i enjoy entertaining seriously are that Darkrai is actually a Zoroark or that Takuto is Paul's father. Not that either of those will actually happen, but I'll enjoy entertaining myself with the idea of either until I'm proven otherwise.

                              Oh, and, what will Takuto's English name be? I can't see them sticking with Takuto.

                              lol. Have fun. IMO, Takuto looks WAY too young to be Pail's father. As for it being Zoroark ... Maybe. But the 13th movie already showcased Zoroark so theirs no real reason too, but nothings stopping them from doing it. Then again they already shopwcased Darkrai soooooo ... Hmmm

                                The "level" concept means nothing... Ash has had Pikachu forever so he should be able to beat all these trainers with the Pikachu. Yet he can not.

                                The Pikachu should be like level 100 right now

                                Paul's gone through other regions too, surely some of his are level 100 as well

                                EDIT: 1500 posts. Sweet
