It has been a while since the last pokemon summary, roughly a month ago. But rejoice fans, PM subs has finally released episode 07. In case you forgot what happened last episode the Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup finally began. We rushed passed the first round. The only battle worth noting was Iris’s battle versus Langley when Iris’s Kairyu refused to obey any of her orders, and yet she still won. And that’s what brings up here to today, where the second round of battles will commence. The battles are chosen at random for the second stage of battles. The first to do battle are Shootie and a random person by the name of Marufuji. The second will be another random person by the name of Akihiro and Dent. The third match with be yet another random person, Hirokazu, going against Satoshi. The fourth match pits Iris and Hikari together. I feel sorry for all of the random people who don’t have main character armor and will have to lose.
The first battle commences almost immediately after the match-ups are decided. Shootie throws out his final evolved form starter pokemon, Jalorda. Marufuji responds by throwing out his fire-based pokemon, Kuitaran. Satoshi uses his pokedex on the Kuitaran to gain more information about it, but really the information only talks about how he breathes fire through his nose and how he is an ant-eater pokemon. But Jalorda is a grass type pokemon, giving the obvious advantage over to Marufuji and his Kuitaran. Iris is distracted from the battle because she is worried about Kairyu. She would be because it wasn’t listening to any of her orders, comments Satoshi. She nods and then runs out of the battle hall, saying that she’ll step out for a bit.
|Iris scolds Kairyu for his battle choices.|
Once outside Iris summons Kairyu to start scolding him. He is hunched over like in a typical Japanese delinquent anime. Iris starts scolding Kairyu and telling it to dodge the next attack, but Kairyu is one stubborn jerk that pushes iris away when she is so concerned about him. Shirona comes walking up to Iris because it is plain as day that she is having trouble with her Kairyu. Shirona is a good person to have her fully control her Kairyu, but somehow I think that Lance would be a better choice, if a choice was given. Kairyu looks sharply at Shirona, as if he was watching her battle with the Isshu Elite Four member and has now decided that it wants to try his strength against her.
Shootie finishes up his battle without effort. First he Leers the enemy and then finishes them up with one attack of Solarbeam, just like in the first round of battles. Once victory is acknowledged for Shootie, he looks over at Satoshi with a superior kind of gleam in his eye and smirks and then he walks away. Satoshi and Pikachu both return the stare down. The second battle commences between Akihiro and Dent after the commentators give a few seconds to praise Shootie’s battle strategy. Dent throws out his Muggyo while Akihiro throws out his Chillaccino. Satoshi pulls out his pokedex for a second time and points at Chillaccino. He learns that it is the evolved form of Chillarmy and also how its white fur has special properties that can deflect enemy attacks.
|Shootie pretends to be cool and composed.|
Kairyu is such an awkward pokemon. He fiercely roars and bares its fangs at Shirona, but Shirona merely smiles and pats him on the nose while telling him to be more relaxed around humans. Humans and pokemon are supposed to live in harmony together. Kairyu doesn’t seem to hate to be patted, but he shifts his eyes uneasily to the right. Iris’s eyes are sparkling even more; Shirona, her hero, is truly amazing. In the battle hall has just made short work of his opponent and is declared the victor. These opponents are so random nobodies that they aren’t even worth the time it takes to watch their battle. Iris and her angsty Kairyu are deemed more important. Iris comes running back into the hall right as Satoshi is heading onto the stage for his battle. Meloetta appears as Satoshi is heading off as well to show that she is here to support him.
Once out on the battle field, Satoshi throws out his Gantle while his opponent throws out his Lanculus. This time it is Hikari that pulls out her pokedex and inspects Lanculus. It is the multiplying pokemon and is the evolved form of Doublan; when Lanculus shakes its hands, a network forms that increases its psychic power. Satoshi in his eagerness to battle starts the fight with Flash Canon. Even the random guy who is facing against the star of the show gets shafted, this time by Shootie and Shirona who have a pleasant conversation in the hallway. Shootie is confident that no matter who is opponent is, he will make a strategy against them. Well, says Shirona while licking her ice cream, good luck. She then leaves while Shootie vows to defeat her after defeating Adeku. Satoshi has just finished up his battle with a Rock Blast.
|Chillaccino is defeated.|
And finally for the final match-up of the second round, Hikari versus Iris; Iris throws out her Kairyu (talk about predictable) to which Hikari answers with her ice giant Manmoo. This time it is Langley that pulls out her pokedex to check on Manmoo. This is going to be a power-vs-power battle. It won’t be elegant just because Hikari is in it, which is a darn shame because her elegance tore Dent apart when they battled. Hikari starts with a Hidden Power. Iris half-yells and half-pleads with Kairyu to dodge. It snorts very obviously, but it dodges the attack. Hikari follows up her attack with another, Ice Shard. Iris reacts as if she could feel the ice all the way on the other side of the battle field. This time for sure, Iris orders Kairyu to dodge, but Kairyu overheard her fears of ice type attacks against dragon type pokemon. Kairyu doesn’t dodge and takes the attack head on.
Why won’t Kairyu dodge attacks that it is weak against, wonders Iris. This is turning into the first round all over again. Hikari orders Manmoo to use Take Down. IT starts powering up and then charges forward. Iris again orders Kairyu to dodge, but instead of dodging Kairyu does the exact opposite and charges forward to meet the Take Down attack head on. Kairyu has caught Manmoo by its tusks and a display of raw power is shown by both pokemon and neither wants to back down. Hikari uses her battle experience to order Manmoo to use Ice Shard from this distance. Kairyu is then pummeled with Ice Shards at close range for a short moment, but then Kairyu has enough of that and picks up Manmoo and flings him across the battle field. Satoshi and Dent are on the sidelines with huge, sparkling eyes. Iris is yelling and trying to scold Kairyu in the middle of the fight, but Kairyu merely snorts and ignores her.
|The Pokemon explains Manmoo to Langley.|
Manmoo makes it back to its feet. Hikari congratulates it and tells her pokemon that they will win for sure. Iris points to Hikari’s and Manmoo’s bond with each other and tries to get Kairyu jealous of that bond, but another snort is given. If there is no connection between trainer and pokemon and zero trust is given, then it won’t matter how much power you may have. Hikari orders another Take Down. Of course Iris is going to tell Kairyu to dodge, but for the second time it charges forward ta top speed. But this time Kairyu doesn’t grab Manmoo by its tusks. The two massive pokemon collide heads and Manmoo is the stronger of the two, sending Kairyu flying back over to its side of the battle field. Kairyu struggles to get back up. In the meantime Hikari has ordered Manmoo to follow up with another Ice Shard. Fire is strong against ice, Iris tells Kairyu, so she wants him to counter with Flamethrower. But Kairyu hears the fear in her voice and refuses to do anything about it and takes the Ice Shard head on without even bothering to block.
Hikari goes on the attack again, this time using Ice Fang for the first time. Manmoo’s tusks grow larger and then are covered with a thick wall of ice. It then charges Kairyu like in Take Down. Iris is having a panicking attack because she knows that Kairyu won’t listen to her no matter what. Kairyu has caught Manmoo by its tusks again, and as in the first round of battles, Kairyu is beginning to get covered with ice. Suddenly, Kairyu’s wings opens and he flies up to the sky, breaking the contact with the ice. At the ceiling, all eyes are on Kairyu and are wondering what he is going to do. Normally in this situation, people will be wondering what the trainer is going to do, but no one is fooled into thinking that Iris is the one in charge here. Kairyu bellows a deep, rumbling roar and then it flies down at top speed using the move Dragon Rush to defeat Manmoo in one strike. This has to be one frustrating battle for Hikari, but a loss is still a loss and Iris isn’t going to let Kairyu’s refusal to accept her orders impede on her celebrations. At least for a moment.
|Kairyu and Manmoo battle it out.|
The third round match-ups are chosen at random again. There is no change whatsoever in the match-ups, but Iris and Satoshi has changed positions on the match-up board display. Iris and Satoshi are fired up for their battle because the last time they had an official battle, Satoshi lost. He is ready to redeem that loss. Shootie and dent have also faced each other in an official battle previously and it was Dent who won then.. Shootie is ready to redeem that loss with a victory here. Shootie vows in his mind, in response to Adeku claiming this will be a battle to see, how this will be a boring, one-sided affair with him as the winner. Dent knows that Shootie is only looking forward to the final battle against Adeku, but dent vows not to go down without a fight as one of the Isshu Region’s Gym Leaders. Shootie sends out Jalorda for the third time in this tournament while Dent sends out his Iwapalace.
Shootie hopes to finish this battle up instantly by using Leer and then using Solarbeam. Dent has his crab use Protect, which guards against all attacks. But Iwapalace may be protected against all attacks, but Jalorda’s power was still too great and sends Iwapalace flying away, though it took no damage. Dent decides to attack with X-Scissor, to which Shootie has his Jalorda dodge with absurd ease. Dent follows up his attack with a Rock Slide. Rock form in the air out of nothing and start crashing against the ground. Shootie counters with a Frenzy Plant attack. Jalorda slithers passed the falling rocks and hits Iwapalace for the victory.
|Kairyu impressively uses Dragon Rush.|
Before his battle with Iris, Satoshi shares a few words with Dent about his loss. Satoshi can’t wait to fight that Jalorda, but first he must win his battle against Iris. Also before her battle, Iris and Hikari share a few words. Hikari tells Iris that she’ll be okay because she had a rough time getting Manmoo to listen to her as well. To be fair, Satoshi had trouble with his Lizardon. It seems that for these oversized pokemon in both size and power it takes nothing short than risking your life for them to get them to trust you and listen to you. The battle between Satoshi and Iris commences. Satoshi throws out his Waruvile while Iris throws out her Kairyu. The episode ends with a stared own between these two pokemon and a peek into the future at the battles left to be had.
