@beast_mode999: right, Whis telling them he's training them to fight without thinking somehow means goku getting should get hit by a spirit bomb to break through his limit.
All they had were explanations that were very different from the actual thing. In your mind you actually think a flashback stops something from being an ass pull. Shows how much you know
No wonder the writers can pull anything out their ass when they have people like you defending them.
Yeah calm the hell down and make sure you know someone before you assume who they are. I'm actually extremely critical of DBS and the only real thing I defended was Kale's motivation for transforming which I found valid
But looking back on what you mean by asspull I can agree. If it was just a normal power up then yeah fine. But the hax that came with it I can see as not really making any sense
The definition of an asspull is something that comes out of nowhere. This states has been hinted since before the Golden Frieza arc. Vegeta even had a flashback regarding Whis explaining this technique. Whis aslo stated that they would not even have to transform once they learn this technique.
This had a lot more buildup than Ssj did by a longshot
