Aizen with ease

Yama with difficulty
Urahara was able to string together kido spells against a virtually non-resistant Chrysalis Aizen.
What feats do we even have of a "serious" Chrysalis Aizen?
The part about the caution is a bit murky. Yamamoto is obviously the most powerful shinigami but in turn does chrysalis aizen need to be cautios around shinigami? Even if he does not evolve he can still regenerate, he has insane speed and power inherently superior to that of shinigami. Even when aizen was actually defeated it was not because shinigami rose to his level but rather because he was lowered to the level of that of a shinigami (which was hinted to have been a desire of aizen to boot). Yamamoto does not have crazy sealing kido made specifically for aizen, all he can do is burn up stuff and cause generic damage. As we saw in a number of occasions neither of those really do work...
Ultimately aizen was not cautious against urahara because he in fact did not need to (otherwise aizen could have been dealt with without him losing his power). Aizen was careless against ichigo because aizen could not actually fathom the thought of ichigo being superior. Does aizen need to be cautious against yamamoto? IMO not at all. Yamamoto is completely bound to the ordinary limitations of shinigami, even if he has a lot of power it is still ordinary shinigami power.
hogyoku was saving him even before his transformations.
FGT Ichigo had more reiatsu than Aizen but his attacks still failed to do any permanent damage, Aizen was still able to regenerate after Ichigo used his strongest technique, on the other hand Aizen's attacks hurt Ichigo. It was hogyoku that made Aizen invincible, not Aizen's own powers which were weaker than Ichigo's.
Gin's attack forced another transformation, can Yamamoto do enough damage to force a transformation? IMHO he can. Nobody can kill Aizen as long as he is the master of hogyoku but once hogyoku is out of the equation, IMHO what we have is someone who can be killed by ordinary shinigami like Gin.
I have my doubts about the orb being what healed aizen after the transformation began.
For that matter, I don't think the orb actually "gave" power to aizen. The orb triggered the transformations but based on what we know of the orb's functioning it can't give power, it can only bring forth something which is already within the possibilities of the user. In that when aizen transformed it was "his" power and not the orb's.
Then there is also the issue of the chrysalis stage itself not being a definitive form. The chrysalis stage was just a cocoon kind of thing, aizen was in the middle of an evolution then. In that sense it would make sense that aizen was actually growing stronger as the fight went on (of course such growth in strength would have been beyond the perception of shinigami).
And even if aizen does indeed need to be wary of shinigami there is still no way yamamoto can win. There already is the issue of aizen's reiatsu being beyond that of shinigami at that point and he is still a extremely accomplished fighter. It's not like aizen will think of himself as he was during the fight against urahara and co if the situation is not the same. If he for some reason is vulnerable to shinigami attacks then he would logically know which would mean he would fight as his usual self. So we still have an evolving dude with reiatsu beyond that of shinigami and his old illusion and other abilities. I don't see how yamamoto would win even in this scenario.
Aizen doesn't have regeneration powers without the hog'. How can you say otherwise? Where in the manga does it show him healing himself w/o the hog'? You can't find it. If Gin helped Aizen EVOLVE BY EXPERIENCING DEATH, how wouldn't Yama's powers be any less effective? Like what was brought up in here earlier, shikai attacks were effective so how wouldn't Yama's? Hoguyoku grants the desires of those around it. There was never any indications that it brought up latent abilities. If Aizen had reiatsu above all Shinigami, why did he continue to use shinigami type attacks? He was on a different plane but not untouchable. If that were the case butterfly Aizen wouldn't have been affected by Gin, or actually he wouldn't be butterfly Aizen without the help of Gin.
My point, a shinigami power was able to 'kill' him. And wasn't it said TO GIN- that even though the hog' wasn't in him he still had IT'S POWERS?
If getting stabbed was yama's strategy of overcoming KS then his brain must consist of one cell that is about to rot away. I would like Yama to use his 'strategy' when Aizen actually uses KS and go for his head, shame Kubo doesn't kill good guys.
Just because Aizen is not allowed to evolve further you people are taking away his regen too? Lol Yama fanboys will do anything to get him to win.

You really should say what you said to all those people who voted for Yama in the tournament.

Fact is, the ONLY other way also involved touching KS, but before it activated. Yama took a gamble and seemed to have replicated a similar scenario. You basically said that Yama was the stupidest guy in the manga because he COULD have been stabbed in the head. Fact is though, there is no other way for any of the captains to beat KS, so I don't see how that makes him stupid in any way.
As for the last bit, yeah, I DID say that in the Aizen VS Yamamoto thread. Constantly.
Then why was Yama still so confident after losing RJ and arrogantly claimed that he is the strongest shinigami while implying heavily that his fists alone are enough to take down Aizen? Truth is, the guy's no more 'intelligent' than Barragan.
I never said Yama figuring out reiatsu sensing is unaffected by KS is dumb, I said it's because he just let Aizen hit him. He did not even attempt to protect his vital spots somehow (for example Aizen used a kido shield to protect the back of his head)before fighting Aizen and lure him stab a not too important spot instead. He also could have worked on reiatsu sensing like I said, he shouldn't be too bad at it in the first place seeing he probably has all his shinigami skills maxed. He also could have urged other captains to work on reiatsu sensing so they can all fight Aizen together in a collaborative effort instead of just going 'yeah I'm gonna take him down by either kamikazing along with half of SS' or try to solo him with fists.

That's not really fair. By that logic, anyone should have those shields with them at all times, but we don't even know what they are.Quote:
It was a gamble, there was a single way to beat Aizen, and that involved getting stabbed in some way. Using the shields isn't a fair comparison, and I don't know how else you could protect yourself when the guy controls every one of your senses.
In terms of improving Reiatsu sensing, who's to say that's even possible? Don't you think if Yama COULD sense his sword from a distance he would? It doesn't make sense for Yama to take such a risk if there was any alternative. Since we haven't seen that as even being possible, it's again an unfair standard to set.
Which is why I said he should have prepared some sort of defensive measure for his vital spots BEFORE fighting Aizen.
Reiatsu sensing should be possible. Tousen has shown to rely on it heavily. It's 2am where I am so I'm gonna have to reply to anything new tomorrow takahashi.
Tousen has also failed at it. Komamura was able to completely hide his presence around him. Clearly even a decent level of control can throw off someone adept at it. And to feel JUST the Reiatsu while your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin are telling you otherwise in a fight no less, isn't a fair expectation.Quote:
Anyway, night Lulu
Ichigo injured Aizen but then Aizen evolved once again and he said hogyoku wouldn't let him get defeated. Aizen himself said that hogyoku would protect its master.
And Aizen wasn't fighting by himself, he and hogyoku were fighting side by side, hogyoku is a power source by itself, this is why Ichigo failed to kill Aizen even though he had more reiatsu than Aizen. IMHO even Ichigo wasn't strong enough to defeat the combined power of Aizen and hogyoku, hogyoku is invincible, Ichigo won by making hogyoku switch sides (or by making Aizen switch sides lol), not by overpowering hogyoku.
Aizen said "Fear is necessary for evolution, fear that one could be annihilated." Doesn't it mean that a shinigami (in this case, Gin) has the power to annihilate Aizen? The orb made Aizen evolve, Aizen would have died without the orb.
Aizen isn't allowed to use his illusions in this fight, so IMHO Yamamoto has a pretty good chance to win based on the conditions set forth in this topic. All Yamamoto has to do is to use the power of RJ on someone who can't hide himself using his illusions.
ShootToKill said that hogyoku regeneration wasn't allowed. Aizen+hogyoku combo is basically invincible, what's the point of the topic then? lol
P.S. I wonder if hogyoku may run out of energy, like Philosopher's Stones in FMA. If there are two hogyokus, how long will the fight go on? lol
