Anipoke is just around the corner! "Blow forth, wind! Conjure a Sandstorm!" The fierce battle with "Dragon Storm" Kibana!

pic

In this article, we'll introduce you to the Pokémon and characters that will appear in today's episode, as well as comments from the voice actors and director, and other Anipoke information you won't find anywhere else! An absolutely unwavering battle is about to begin!!

pic

The battle for the title of "Masters Eight," which is given to the top eight competitors, has finally begun! If Satoshi wins today's battle, he will be in the "Masters Eight"! His opponent in this fateful battle will be Kibana, who boasts overwhelming power among the gym leaders in the Galar region!

pic

▲ Satoshi has finally made it this far! The strongest champion, Dande, is in sight!

The battle will be conducted under the Masters Tournament regulations. They can use only three Pokémon, the duration of the match and Pokémon can be switched out unlimited times, and the winner is the one who knocks out all of their opponent's Pokémon! Under the watchful eye of the champion Dande, a battle that neither side can afford to lose is about to begin! 

pic

▲ Kibana is a Dragon-type Trainer! What kind of Pokémon will he use? And what kind of Pokémon will Satoshi challenge with!? 

pic

▲ The rule is that only one of Kyodaimax, Mega Evolution, or Z-Move can be used. Will this be the place for Lucario's Mega Evolution!?

The battle begins with a Dragon showdown between Kairyu and Flygon! Satoshi will soon learn why Kibana is known and feared as "Dragon Storm"!

pic

▲ Kibana, who knows everything about all Dragon-types, has a slight edge...!?

pic

▲ "Blow forth, wind!" Kibana shouts as the weather changes and the field is enveloped in a Sandstorm!

pic

▲ Flygon attacks out of the Sandstorm! Satoshi is cornered by Kibana's battle style, which manipulates the weather...!

pic

▲ This tactic is the essence of "Dragon Storm" Kibana, as he manipulates the weather to gain an advantage in battle!

pic

▲ And there it is, Kyodimax! Facing it is Lucario! Remember your training with Gekkouga!

Satoshi, wants to win the battle so he can challenge Dande, the strongest champion, and Kibana, has vowed to take revenge on Dande. The battle becomes more intense as both sides exchange their desire for victory! The outcome of the battle and the unexpected ending will be shown on Anipoke.
