Pokemon Journeys is currently making its way through the quarterfinals of the Masters Tournament with the latest episodes of the series now airing in Japan, and the newest episode took things one step further for the Sinnoh Champion Cynthia as she used Garchomp's own Mega Evolution. One of the major core appeals of the World Coronation Series was not only the fact that Ash Ketchum was going to go up against every region he's ever adventured through before, but the fact that he was also able to now use the regional specific tricks and evolution he has learned about over the years too.
While this has been true for Ash, it's also been true for every other competitor as they are allowed to use either Z-Moves, Mega Evolution, or Dynamax in each of their battles. The Masters Tournament has already seen some of these tricks over the course of its first two battles so far, and the third match in the quarterfinals has taken it to the next step as Cynthia has been taking on Iris and unleashed her own Mega Evolution for Garchomp during the climax of the battle itself. Check it out in action below as spotted by @SnivyPokemon21 on Twitter:
Episode 117 of Pokemon Journeys kicks off the match between Cynthia and Iris for the third match of the Masters Tournament quarterfinals. The two Dragon trainers were just as fierce as fans would expect to see from the rest of the champions, and it eventually got down to the final one on one. Iris was left with her Haxorus, and Cynthia was left with her Garchomp. Cynthia then unleashed another surprise when she revealed that she had a Key Stone of her own and unlocked Garchomp's Mega Evolution. This unfortunately proved to be too much for Iris and Haxorus to contend with at the end of the day.
With Cynthia taking the victory over Iris, she now heads to the semifinals and will be taking on either Ash or Steven Stone next depending on how the final match of the quarterfinals shakes out. It's been an unpredictable tournament between champions so far, and now fans can gear up knowing that these champions are still hiding some major tricks up their sleeves.
