    Can I say it's sort of ironic that Palpi hasn't appeared in an episode in ages...and he shows up now just to get owned? I really hope the writers give him a development episode, because it' sort of sad that he is pretty cool and strong and sort of lacks all depth because the writers forget about him (Geez at least Tranquill and Swadloon got to evolve...poor Palpi is just sort of dead and alone in his pokeball or chills in the background when everyone is out of their pokeballs)...

    Also, I have a theory has to why they chose Homika. Other than to promote BW2 (Next week!!!), there is the whole issue of Drayden has more to do with Iris than he does with Ash. I mean again he is part of her character development.

    Palpitoad is definitely the most shafted pokemon in terms of screen time. And when he does get st its just as a battle bot. Aside from him being cranky at the lake before he was caught.

      You think there is still a possibility for some development? I would love an episode where Ash and him bond.

      Edit: Looking at Ash's team: Though I love Krokorok, Snivy, Boldor and can tolerate Oshawott (he's kind of jerk XD); I honestly think his 6 for Homika would have been a great 6 if that's all he caught. Nice, balanced, pretty strong and...well the writers wouldn't have to try to juggle with just six (look at Houen).

      I feel Palpitoad will just be battle bot, which is also the feeling I get from Boldore. His team with Pikachu, Krokorok, 3 starters, Scraggy seems to be the main rotation. His 4 Subs seem pretty viable options but they won't get much development I think.

        I mean at least he got an episode during his debut and the Clay episode where he starred. Remember Palpi was just like an offhanded capture in which Oshawott's fear of opening his eyes under water and saving the group was focus. Like remember Ash was just like "Oh hai thur strong Palpi!" *derpy pokeball throw* I mean it's really sad. I hope at the very least in the Shizui eppy MAYBE he'll get some development.

          Well it was actually a good match...minus the unnecessary pokemon ash used like boldore, Unfezant, Palpitoad.

            I mean...Palpi is a ground type...I won't see why he was uneeded...though in the end...it was Pikachu who got the win fabulously while poisoned. Well...Meloetta and Dawn next week XD

            OK, I haven't watched in ages. In general, I did find the battle really interesting, but I found I had too many problems, mostly with Homika being way overpowered. Especially that Koffing >_> I suppose they just want to give a good show for BW2 characters. Yay for anime physics with it being able to topple over Boldore. Palpitoad went out way too quickly. Pikachu really should've used Thunderbolt while [the dustbin Pokemon] was holding it. They had an interesting way of showing poison, but it is a kiddies show, so, heh. I thought toxic killed off Ash's Pokemon way too quickly. I know that the effects gradually get worse, but still. I enjoyed Homika's character, but I was expecting her to be 17/18 not 10 o___O I don't like the freckles.

            I believe Homi-chan is 13, not 10 :D
            And I must say I was expecting her to be young :D

              Hope the ending will say Next Time A New Beginning!... because I just heard from Bulbanews about that the episode after that is still Rival Destinies! If it did not change, It's just crazy!

              Of course it was said in Japanese version. What will be said in USA version is irrelevant.
