"On the Ice Field, the announcer says that the battle is just beginning, but one Trainer has two Pokémon remaining, and the other has one Pokémon remaining." I don't think that is an error. Saying the battle is just beginning can also refer to the battle getting more intense, which is most likely what the announcer is referring to. Similar to the phrase "this X is just getting started". Anyone else think that? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 21:07, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
Golbat's "Mega Drain" and Exeggutor's "Egg Bomb"
After learning of the Protect/Harden mistake made with Ash's Snorlax, something occurred to me. Mandi orders a Mega Drain attack, yet when executed, it seems to involve Golbat swooping down on the opponent and possibly biting it, something that to me seems more suited for an attack like Leech Life. Seeing as no other instance of Mega Drain in the anime looked even remotely like this, is it not a possibility that this Mega Drain was in fact Leech Life, albeit incorrectly labeled? To add to that, I'm inclined to believe that Exeggutor's Egg Bomb is actually Barrage, and therefore the victim of a similar error. I don't know if it's just me, but those things did not look like eggs, not to mention it looked nothing like Rudy's Exeggutor's Egg Bomb, as seen in an episode not very far away from this one. In fact, the Errors section states that the announcer incorrectly referred to Exeggutor's Egg Bomb as Barrage, but could it not have been the other way around, Mandi ordering an Egg Bomb but Exeggutor using Barrage?
Unfortunately, I don't have the means to view the Japanese version of this episode, and so I can't verify if the attacks were labeled the same in the original. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talk • contribs) 00:29, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
- I couldn't find the episode, but at least according to this, the moves were Egg Bomb and Mega Drain. Egg bomb may look different for the same reasons as Dragon Rage and BubbleBeam. As for Mega Drain, remember that Kabutops's and Beautifly's dex entries mention that they drain the opponent's body fluids, and both of the can learn Absorb and/or Mega Drain depending on the generation (but neither of them can learn Leech Life).--電禅Den Zen 10:25, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
