    If only the Misty Explosion had missed the Scream Tail, we would've gotten a wonderful recreation of John and Mikey's last metronome battle

      It's because Miltank wasn't in the battle

      don't worry, Mikey will get his Heat Wave in the long run. thank to global warming lol 😜

    Literally the most intense metronome battle the world will ever see

  • mitch dominick
    mitch dominick 3 months ago +86

    With all the new pokemon who can learn metronome, will you do another metronome draft league? Those have been my favorite content!

    • Gengarzilla
      Gengarzilla 3 months ago +3

      It's best to wait until the HOME update for that. There's several unavailable Pokémon who can now use Metronome, amongst them being Tornadus.

    • Pheonix Pidgey
      Pheonix Pidgey Month ago +1

      @Gengarzilla there will be NINE legendary pokemon (including both of Tornadus forms) that can learn metronome in pokemon sv once home becomes available and thats cool

  • Rylee Miller
    Rylee Miller 3 months ago +17

    Bleakwind Storm (Japanese: こがらしあらし Chilly Wind Storm) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. It is the signature move of Tornadus.

  • sabina Poulsen
    sabina Poulsen 3 months ago +89

    Looking at Tulip, kinda makes me want to use one for the first time ever😂 I've always just felt like they were too much of a "pretty fairy type" to my tastes and I've never really needed one for balance

    • CynderBlaze
      CynderBlaze 3 months ago +1

      As someone who’s used Florges in the past, I can definitely attest to it being good! Its special attack and special defense are really solid!

    • Gengarzilla
      Gengarzilla 2 months ago

      At 552, Florges has the second highest base stat total of any non-legendary that isn't a pseudo-legend, Mega Evolution, Slaking, or Archeops, being only three points behind Arcanine. This Pokémon is by no means just about looking pretty; it could definitely pay off well for an in-game team if you don't mind the very limited movepool.

      It used judgement

  • Mazhar Siddiqi
    Mazhar Siddiqi 3 months ago +32

    This was awesome
    The Misty Explosion ending reminded me of John's Miltank surviving one of Mikey's Pokémon using Self-destruct winning him the Metronome Battle as everyone else fainted from it
    History repeats itself (kind of)

  • Eclipse
    Eclipse 3 months ago +19

    I love that Mikey isn't even annoyed whenever Grunty Boi appears now lol, just treats him like a regular person. Love to see it :)

  • NightsAlone
    NightsAlone 3 months ago +47

    YESS more metronome content!! that ending was PERFECT. The last time you guys caught a team to metronome battle it also ended in an explosion leaving john's pokemon standing, so thats hilarious LMAO

      that was one of my favorite videos

    Finding shiny Pokémon is SUPER EASY barely an inconvenience.
    For John that is.

    I love how both Mikey and John’s editors are slowly going insane

  • M1

    Great to see that Grunty Boy is in a happy and stable relationship

  • Gen V.B
    Gen V.B 3 months ago +5

    The best part of the battle is Mikey keeps on wanting to have Heat Wave, Tulip unexpectedly being strong, and pew pew disappointing PM7 a lot but managing to get him the win (also a deja vu of sorts from their last Metronome Battle which a Pokémon from PM7 managing to survive an Explosion)

  • Xvirus105

    Metronome battles back thank you for bringing this back. I loved this for so long that’s what got me into mandjtv🎉

  • UnknownNPC

    I’m just surprised that Michael didn’t go for tankier Pokémon. He knew what he was getting into

  • John Wikkerink
    John Wikkerink 3 months ago +2

    Love that Mikey called that Dragonite would KO itself too, and then it did to end the battle

  • Cody Hill
    Cody Hill 3 months ago +2

    I love the conversations between the two of you it's always so funny and warm like the conversation between two lifelong friends.

  • Gengarzilla
    Gengarzilla 2 months ago

    That last move brought back chills, my goodness. At least John's last Pokémon couldn't have been a Miltank this time.

  • Cassandra Spoelhof
    Cassandra Spoelhof 3 months ago +3

    DAMN THAT FLORGES WAS POWERFUL AF! You made the right choice going for her, John. She was totally MVP.

  • Leo Woodwind

    These two (and their editors) really help me stay sane. I'm very thankful 🙏🏻

    If John finds a shiny in the first few minutes I'm going to lose it

    • Monty Eggman
      Monty Eggman 3 months ago +9

      Does finding one BEFORE the video starts count as being in the first few minutes?

    • Eyebrawl NLC
      Eyebrawl NLC 3 months ago +3

      ​@montyeggman3075 Mikey found a shiny before one of the other videos, so I count it.

    I like how at the end John and Mikey just wanted the battle to end

  • Silas Iannitelli

    I love these videos. They're hilarious and super entertaining.

  • AztecCroc
    AztecCroc 2 months ago +1

    6:23 Rage Fist doesn't have to effect the target to count for the evolution, you can just spam all of them into a Normal type, use an Ether, and then spam the next 10 and evolve it after one battle.

  • Michael Mahagaputra
    Michael Mahagaputra 3 months ago +1

    That was really intense, Bigglyruff holding it by herself against two but in the end, pew pew stands alone

  • N64_KFP
    N64_KFP 3 months ago

    I didn't see that ending coming, but more and more I suspected Dragonite would be its own demise

    I've been itching for a "then we battle" type video from Mikey and John for so long, so excited!

  • Jacob Lapsley

    ShinyMew76 Month ago

    This makes me really miss the Metronome league you used to run, my favorite moment probably has to be AuraGaurdian’s Miltank destroying everything. I used to have so much fun watching those. Hope they return one day!

  • Pranav Diwan
    Pranav Diwan 3 months ago

    i missed when you used to do these metronome battles all those years back. This was so refreshing and nostalgic at the same time I'd love to see you revisit some of these old ideas with new twists

    The ending of that battle was legendary :)

    You should do these Metronome battles more often, also outside of the John-and-Michael-Cup.
    They are very fun to watch

    • Joe Thomas

      It's not John-and-Michael cup, it's just the John Michael cup.

    Adarsh A R 3 months ago

    I thought John would catch Drowzee as the last 'mon but he didn't 🥺
    It's so good to see Drowzee using metronome in the anime 😂
    Also, literally when John said his final 'mon is Slaking, Mikey, was staring at his Drowzee in the box. 😘

    I loved this idea and would want to see more of it XD. Reminds me of when I tried going through the Pokémon League in Gen 4 only using Metronome. Maybe you can do a metronome race to see who can beat the Scarlet and Violet E4 first (or get the farthest)

    Can’t believe there was only ONE Pokemon go boom move in the whole battle!

  • TheMaestro

    I want to let you two know, I watch you guys every day! you guys are amazing, funny, talented Clip-Sharers. You both have the potential to reach 10M subscribers.
    I watched you guys when I had COVID and it made me feel much better. You always get a laugh out of me. I wish I could get your merch, but sadly I can't. There is no other youtube I like more in the world. I can't explain how much I love your videos.
