What makes Slaking Sawyer's Pokémon? Slaking only appeared for a split second and his trainer was nowhere to be seen. Also, Malva never mentioned Sawyer during her recap of the Kalos League. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 14:42, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
I swear, after Sawyer's Slurpuff tries to use Attract on Tierno's Blastoise (a few minutes after the break), Clemont says that both Slurpuff and Blastoise are male. This would mean Tierno's Raichu, who got succesfully hit by Attract beforehand, should be female. But Raichu should have gender differences, and Tierno's Raichu looks like a male, with a pointed tail instead of a blunt/shortened tail.
The way I see it, there's two possibilities. Either the dialogue was wrong (or flubbed...or maybe I'm hearing wrong (but I doubt it, it shouldn't be that easy to mistake)) or Tierno's Raichu has been drawn wrongly the whole time. As (IMO) a very weak third alternative, Clemont could have just been wrong—but there's absolutely no reason he needed to be: the dialogue could either have been written so that Clemont was right, or it could have been written so he didn't specify any gender at all; if they wrote him to be specific about it, he should be right. (In short, IMO there's some error in this mess.)
It may also be informative to see what the dub says when it's released, see if they say male or correct it to female (or what).
- since Sawyer's Slurpuff is listed as female on Sawyer's page, shouldn't we also confirm Tierno's Blastoise as female? Nutter Butter (talk) 05:38, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
- Well maybe they should also be. I mean, did the Alain VS Trevor battle happen in XY126? Not really, so it's a flashback to a previous battle. Also, it's not specifically stated that it's shown on the screen. They could just be showing us those clips as flashback, not as videos that Malva is showing. - unsigned comment from Playerking95 (talk • contribs)
