Goodra is garbage, good riddance.
>watching the anime
It was incredibly obvious from the beginning that Goomy was going to be released once it was strong enough to take its home back
It's like how in Johto they had to get rid of Charizard early on so it wouldn't overshadow the rest of Ash's team (and even then his other Kanto mons overshadowed his Johto ones, which is they had to start dropping his old Pokemon off at Oak's before each new region)
Here's what happened:
>bigwigs tell show to market goodra
>director reluctantly forces it into the show
>does his best to make a shitty pokemon look good
>drops it at the first possible chance to make room for the superior dragon
OLM has good taste in Pokemon.
webm related, shitting on another awful mon
They realized that Noivern is more fitting.
Slow tanks don't suit Ash, speedy glass cannons do.
They were nearing the 5th gym battle and they wanted a memorable final battle between fully evolved pokemon
They didn't want to give Ash a greninja too early, so they gave him goomy and made him evolve really fast.
That's also why they gave Clemont a luxio that evolved so quickly.
They disposed of g.oodra right after the battle because it was too strong for Ash to have it at that moment
Is it Noivern? It's my favorite gen 6 mon!
