If you guys remember, either Iris or Dento mentioned that Snivy had abandoned its previous trainer, most likely because of being a weak trainer. That would mean that Snivy isn't a weak Pokemon; it has battling experiences from the past and hence I would disagree that it is too early for Snivy to evolve.

    Yeah. We don't know how much experience Snivy or Tepig has had, so I would guess that one of them would evolve first, but it's still kinda early in the season for one of Ash's pokemon to evolve.

      It looks like that title was fake, so Snivy most likely won't be evolving after all. I personally think each of Ash's new Pokemon have a lot of work to do until they'll be ready for evolution. Let's see Ash win some more battles first.

      The only reason I could see Snivy evolving is, that outside of Pikachu it was the only one that put up a fight against Shooti.
      Hence why I said this in my previous post. So by that token Tepig should evolve too because we don't know the extent of experience it had in the past? I don't think it would stand up against Shooti and know attacks like Attract and Leaf Storm if it was weak. The title was confirmed fake anyways so farther speculation would be pointless.

        Has it been confirmed if it's 2-on-2 or 3-on-3?

          By the looks of the preview









          It looks like a 2 on 2 battle

          Oshawott was Roared in so it probably wasn't expecting to be in the battle the time he was brought out of his pokeball.

            I mean when it was using water gun it wasn't putting any effort.

            Perhaps it is stunned by Miruhog ability Illuminate. Or it could be Mean Look. At this point I couldn't determine anything else outside of those two things that were shown in the preview and the previous episode.

            Well as we all expected Ash lost. And like we were discussing in the Ash personality topic, yet another noob movie on his part. Miruhog: Mean Look Ash: Oshawott Return! What what? Team Rocket stole some stone/meteorite, the usual secret agent theft type thing.

            I'm going to be watching it once I get home but again Satoshi fails with the mean look again? Didn't this happen to him before in the Hoenn region up against Brendan when he was trying to use return when he used Mean Look? >.>

            I don't remember, but right after Yorterri used Roar on Tepig, then right when Oshawott got in he looked surprised that he was in battle, then Aloe switched in Miruhog and it used Mean Look right off the bat. Ash tried to return Oshawott and of course failed. Also left out the usual, Iris: OMG Yorterri is SO CUTE!!!!!

              I was a little surprised that they kept the same theme song with the same pokemon.

              and when could a gym leader switch pokemon??

              Depends on the stipulation of the battle. Maybe the rules for battling is different in every region and in Unova they allow for switches. Or it is a gym by gym basis.

                Kinda rushed through the episode, but a nice surprise to see the writers giving Aloe Roar+Mean Look. Wasn't much of a battle though. Took, what, 2 minutes total?

                Oshawott and Miruhog went at it for a little while. Seems like Ash needs to work on increasing his pokemons speed, because both Miruhog and Yorterri outspeed Oshawott and Tepig respectively. Aqua Jet will help since in the game it is a priority move. Seems like Nitro Charge also increases speed as an added effect. Seems like they are going for Speed Training while they are at Battle Club.

                  Ahhh so much interesting-sounding dialogue. I want the subtitles now.

                  So-o... that battle was way short, but I didn't actually mind. Aloe beat Ash efficiently, even when Ash used his little tricks. I was actually surprised that he went down so gracefully, good for him.

                  And Team Rocket being badass. Cool stuff.

                    Team Rocket is so badass now I can't even express my glee in words. I mean, how did they manage to steal the stone while Ash & Co. were in the museum? And they were so pro about it, as well. They didn't just steal the stone, TR managed to get in & out completely undetected. This type of thievery NEVER would have happened in any series not named Best Wishes. I mean, their surge on the awesome scale has blown my mind. Gaaaah, I love BW TR so much.

                    And Ash. Well, I suspected he'd lose, ect.

                    Wow Satoshi got his butt kicked in that episode and man did Team Rocket become more badass or what? I so didn't see this coming but Team Rocket is just amazing now. At least Oshawott had a good battle until it lasted.

                      2 vs 2 battle that's cool.

                      I can't wait until the rematch.

                        Wow, if I was Ash I'd be pretty embarrassed after getting taken down so easily. It's time for Ash and his Pokemon to train so they'll actually start to win more battles.

                        It really bugged me how Aloe's hands were always on her hips. >.<

                        Satoshi barely got much training done in the past few episodes which would probably be why he lost so easily. Hopefully in the next episode we'll get a really good battle. At least I wasn't the only one that noticed that Aloe hands was on her hips mostly the whole time.
