What are the best battles ever in the anime/movie/manga?
What battles do you want to see?
>Charizard vs Entei
That was a decent battle
>>Ash vs Paul
Yeah, I gotta go with this
Both 6v6 battles too
>Siebold vs Alan
and Alan's match vs Malva would've been good too until she purposely threw the match and blast burn bullshit
I loved Deoxys VS Rayquaza
Fennekin vs Vulpix when?
Basically Dragonite goes crazy and Charizard has to help put it down. Basically everybody shows up for the battle.
Gengar vs Nidorino
Mega Gengar vs Nidoking
Gary vs Giovanni was a good fight. I would have been surprised if Gary beat him
Which was better?
Anime Blastoise vs Charizard
Origins Blastoise vs Charizard
I want to see some Pidgeot vs Other bird pokemon battles
It was great when I first saw it but when you look back at it, it does look bad compared to Origins
Surprisingly, Ash vs. Team Rocket in the third episode of Indigo League is really, really well done. The animation of Pidgeotto manuevering through the air is slick, Team Rocket being an actual threat/breaking the Pokemon rules gives it added suspense, and the conclusion where Caterpie kicks ass is very satisfying.
How many times does thsi happen in the anime? Could someone list them all out?
I only watched the first few seasons.
I forget if the guy was Lance, or just some fag with a Dragonite, but I know Ash fought the "Orange league champion" which was 6v6.
That guy had Dragonite, Gengar, Ditto, and i dont fucking remember what else. Ashe had Snorlax, Lapras, Tauros, Charizard, Pikachu, and Bulbasaur if I remember right.
They all felt like minor battles though, the best battle I could think of was the first from XY&Z.
6v6 battles are called Full Battles in the anime and only happen during the League, rival battles, and special tournaments.
Ones that come to mind off the dome are Ash VS Paul Pre-League, Ash VS Trip, Ash VS Drake, Ash VS Morrison, Ash VS Tyson, and Ash VS Tobias
>XY is trash
It objectively has the best looking and most dynamic battles ever. Only a contrarian would say that.
>Ash vs Olympia
>First XY OP kicks in
Fuck me it was so good
I want to see a team vs giant pokemon
I liked the fact that almost all the female pokemon had rivalries between each other
Gotta go against the grain here and say the Anime did it better. Granted, Origins has animation that is leagues better, but it just amounts to "they hit each-other real hard."
Ash vs Gary had strategy (albeit an unorthodox one) and a killer score. Johto Victory theme GOAT. Plus it had, like, five years of build-up behind it.
That was Drake (not the Hoenn E4, obviously). He also had Electabuzz, Venusaur, and an Onix. Ash didn't have Snorlax, as it was hibernating or some shit. He instead had Squirtle.
Off the top of my head, there was
Ash v Drake
Ash v Gary
Ash v Harrison
Ash v Morrion
Ash v Tyson
Ash v Paul (like, two times I think)
Ash v Tobias (this was the fuck who only used a Darkrai and a Latios though)
Ash v Cameron (really stupid, don't waste your time with this shit)
That's all that comes to mind. I haven't kept up with XY a whole lot, but I don't believe they've had a 6v6 battle yet.
>the Meowstic realize they're cornered and fly off in opposite directions
>Frogadier jumps off of Talonflame's back and goes after the male while Talonflame tails the female
>Talonflame gets above her, does a somersault just for the heck of it, dives into her with Flame Charge and crashes her into the ground with a fiery explosion
>Frogadier slams his fist into the ground barely missing the male Meowstic
>gets ready for Water Pulse but paralysis kicks in
>the Meowstic goes for Psyshock
>Frogadier blocks it with the Water Pulse and tries to resist
>THE POWER OF LOVE happens
>Frogadier manages to fire the Water Pulse and hit the Meowstic
It's the best battle in the series.
Eh fair enough. I could argue that even though Gary wasn't a regular by any stretch, he'd still been there from the beginning and while generation of kids knew him as Ash's rival, but you've got a point. As a whole, Johto sucked pretty hard.
Every Kanto battle is a nostalgia trip which isn't actually very good... but that's ok.
Kalos battles have been fucking awesome, specially the bravest bird.
>puny bird against bird twice its size
>gets a fire attack to the face
>it proceeds to engulf itself on the fire and motherfucking evolve because anger
it was amazing, and so its next evolution against a fucking legendary bird.
Oh and honorable mention to that battle against the fag that used Darkrai, Heracross should have won, it DESERVED to win but the writers were cheeky cunts and that was that.
Will there ever be a Pokemon game that mimics anime battles? Will Pokken be the closest we ever get to that?
The Darkrai movie had excellent battles, and I'm inordinately fond of Ash/Sceptile vs. May/Blaziken. That was a really good match.
I really want to see Ash's Sceptile vs. his Charizard, though. Those two seem like they'd interact in an interesting way.
