So yet again Serena is in a battle she simply does not finish. Why do the writers not ever want her to have a big victory in battle? Serena rarely battles as it is (not counting TR blast-offs) and everytime she does battle the match is simply stopped with no conclusion. Do the writers want to portray Serena as weak and incompetent? Any of the previous girls would be able to completely destroy her in battle and it saddens me because I want Serena to be a great battler. Why can't Serena fight?
It’s like you don’t even watch the show and just go off what’s said on the internet, Anon.
If what you got from Serena ending the battle is that the writers want to portray her as “weak and competent” then I’m afraid you must be bad at reading actions and behaviors, Anon.
Serena sees Eevee’s dancing and Swift attack, and sees just how impressive and graceful and powerful it’s movements can be during the battle. The battle, I might remind you, the entire point of was trying to help Eevee get out of her shell. Instead of cowering, Eevee was dominating.
(lol miscolored frame)
After the Swift ends, Serena clenches her fists and makes her decision. Even Ash notices a change in Serena’s temperament.
But Serena is so happy.
She’s seen all she’s needed to. The battle has served it’s purpose. And now that she’s seen it, it’s time to focus on the real work that needs to be done, practicing for the Showcase.
As for Serena being weak, I will note that Eevee literally outdanced a dance battler that’s given Ash a hard time in the battles he’s had against Tierno and Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise, Goomba Stomping it’s face before forcing it back with a Swift attack.
Serena will be fine. Serena is strong.
