wow I just got around to watching Ash and Cilan vs. Submas episode because it was in the related videos on youtube
ssssh, I’m behind, I’m a bad member of the fandom I know
I think I have to ramble on it for a bit because it amused me so much
Warning: Profanity and excessive rambling
I do not think I can honestly convey how funny I think it is.
Kudari and Nobori (watched in in Japanese k) absolutely do not give a shit about these two dweebs on their train.
They know they’re gonna win.
You can tell.
They give absolutely no fucks at all.
It’s beautifully hilarious. I mean, they let Ash and Cilan’s pokemon kinda play around and humour them, but then Pansage starts cartwheeling around and Kudari’s like
"welp, that’s enough of that"
and Eelektross just electrocutes that crap out of him.
Electric not effective on grass? Fuck that, we’re the Submas.
And then Nobori’s like “guess you’re right, bro” so Chandelure just kind of nonchalantly Psychics (or something? It was in Japanese idunno) Pansage and Tepig and then everything is done.
I mean, come on guys, you lasted like five minutes.
I can do better than that and I’m not even very good
The submas just literally do not give any fucks at all.
Any hits gotten on the Submas’ Pokemon were just because they were allowed to be had.
And throughout the whole thing Nobori and Kudari are just super peppy and adorable and Nobori is all polite and stuff.
Like “we are going to completely annihilate your pitiful first evolution Pokemon and we are going to look freaking adorable and be peppy as we do it because we love battling and subways and italics" and Cilan and Ash can do nothing but sit and watch and they have their asses handed to them by two men with ridiculous sideburns who ride trains for a living.
And it is beautiful.
