Pokemon 2019 Episode 115 Recap
Ash and his pokemon continue their training for the upcoming Masters Tournament. He decides to take the training to Professor Oak’s Laboratory in the Kanto region where he is reunited with the rest of his pokemon. Ash also has an unexpected encounter with his Sinnoh region rival, Paul, and his pokemon Electivire.
The duo get involved in a 3v3 pokemon battle, and the first match is between Ash’s Lucario and Paul’s Gyrados. During the fight, Lucario gets trapped between Gyrados’s tail and is hurt by Ice Fang. However, Lucario is able to break free and finishes the battle by using Bullet Punch.
The next matchup was between Ash’s Dragonite and Paul’s Garchomp. The fight opened with both pokemon using Dragon Claw at their opponent. Unfortunately for Ash, the battle quickly turned in Garchomp’s favour, as he easily overcame Dragonite’s crazy dragon meteor tactic, securing the win.
Finally, it was Ash’s Gengar vs Paul’s Metagross, and Ash’s fire pokemon were excited to witness the battle. Metagross dominated most parts of the match but Gengar was able to create an opening by using his newly learnt move, “will o wisp”, and finally sealing the battle by unleashing his move, “Shadow Ball”.
After the battle, we got to learn Paul’s intention behind his visit. He had used the ace pokemon of each master trainer in the battle to help Ash prepare for his upcoming tournament. The episode ended with the unexpected appearance of Ash’s mom who invites Ash and Goh to sleep over.
