From what I remember,  it look like he just kick the ground to launched his bey mid air but I might be wrong though.
We let Aerial Boost/Hi Jump/Dolphin Shoot, Joshua's launch, and Joe's launch pass, so I'm honestly fine with that.

1. Which Bladebreaker/G Revolution did you prefer, Max, Ray, or Daichi?
2. Favorite Zero G character(s)?
3. Is it just me or after Kai lost to Spencer, almost no water element beyblade has beaten a fire element bey unless it was a Synchrome or a rematch? Kai beat Max, Konzern's balls got knocked away by Hades, Zero beat Eight and Kite, and Suoh beat Fubuki.....wait Hikaru beat Kenta the first time...wow I just realized HIkaru's got a sad backstory and a wasted character. Poor girl.

One more thing, did any beys Burst that were competitively good get nerfed in the anime? I know about Houi, but across all three seasons, any in particular?
Season 3:
DEFINITELY: Hell Salamander, Orb Egis

mights: Crash Ragnarok, Hazard Kerberus, Emperor Forneus, Geist Fafnir, Cho-Z Spriggan 

Season 2: 

DEFINITELY: Tornado Wyven, Blaze Ragnarok, Alter Chronos, Maximum Garuda

mights: Legend Spriggan, Ark Bahamut

Season 1: 

DEFINITELY: Dark Deathsyther, Obelisk Odin, Unlock Unicorn, Beast Behemoth, Rising Ragnarok, Acid Anubis

The fact that its pretty much a genderbend type of thing makes me a little skeptical lol

That sounds wild. Like reading the whole page... wow... So it's basically a genderbent version of Bakuten Shoot? Just aimed for the female demographics...? This is the first time I've ever heard of this... even some of the character designs kind of seem... a bit strange...

I agree with the character designs. Some of the character motivations are pretty interesting and I'd love to see those interpreted in the main show, like a girl taking up a beyblade originally meant for her brother. A lot of people, including myself want a female to eventually surpass Ren and Sasha.
Ren?

I mean I’m fine with the development that they get so far in the Burst series. They don’t necessarily make it only for boys since there are some background girl characters throughout the show—which is way better than when beyblade first came out in my opinion....

Only problem is that none of them have the.."hey we're one of the 16 important bladers for this season with the modern bey system" status, which should change. Ren's the only Bey female in recent memory other than Nicole from Beywheelz to have that status.
I agree with Strider Xanthos.

I mean in the OG series, Mariah, Mariam, Salima, Queen, Julia, Matilda and even Ming-Ming had decent amount of development, were strong bladers but also all had unique beys (Emily also had a unique bey too but she didn't really get much focus or development).

MFB at least had Hikaru, Sophie and Ren have unique beys and even though I'm not a huge fan of Hikaru, she does have some decent development and focus. Mei-Mei and Lera were okay but nothing interesting. Madoka was also pretty cool too.

IMO with Burst, they had a lot of female characters but Kris and Shasa were the only good characters that had either decent character growth, awesome moments and/or good episodes whilst Gumita at least had a few funny moments but meh otherwise. I wasn't a fan of Nika, Momoko was absolutely nothing (the generic classmate), Honey was just... there, Naru's okay but feels like another Tokonatsu/Nika/Kit. Also, most of them were the generic cheerleader-type characters, characters I usually dislike.
And that's my problem, they're just background characters for the most part. There's really no major female blader with a unique beyblade. Kristina is the only really major female character and she's not even a blader. Sasha is probably bursts most major blader but I don't consider her to be a major blader.

I'll give you that Sasha and Kristina do have some decent character growth, and they're the most interesting female characters in Burst bar none. I wouldn't mind lack of character growth if they were at least enjoyable, cool and had a bigger blading role.

As for the rest of them, Nika has no character growth, I mean she suddenly becomes the exposition character in Chouzetsu, for seemingly no reason. In the end Nika isn't interesting. Honey is flat out one of the worst characters in the Beyblade franchise, she has no purpose at all, no growth and isn't interesting. With Gumita, she really had a change of heart to the main cast, but that's only whenever Ranjiro, their gang leader did first. She's also not interesting either. Angie and Chiharu Aoi are interchangable mother figures (although out of the kids free will in Angies case), and have some funny moments but aren't really enough.

I won't say much for Ichika since she's fairly new and isn't done yet, but from what I can tell, she'll just be Sasha level at best.

I think the female representation from the previous gen and even BEYWHEELZ was better.

I don't necessarily need female representation in Beyblade, but if they do, I'd at least hope a few of them were done well, as opposed to having most of them being useless or boring.

Yeah and its not that hard, just do with what you do with all the character, name, fun personality, motivation, dynamics, they've done it in the Metal Saga and its spinoffs, even the original has more. Burst has written a grand total 50 of those characters, one of them being a girl shouldn't be that hard.

Then again, one time I said having one female blader wouldn't hurt and a girl basically told me "Shut the carp up feminist. I don't give a carp if you go carp sucking about girl's right in other anime's but you stay away with you're femenazi carp in Beyblade, got it?" This was back when Burst God started airing so I had no idea since the subbers were taking longer, but I'm all for it.
Okay, kinda random but I been visiting here for a while and decided to make an account finally. I haven’t following burst since Gachi got announced, did I miss anything important? Sorry if this is irrevelant.

6 main bladers, 12 episodes, 4 beyblades released with at least 4 more on the way, ChoZ ended while the dub is two thirds done.

Thanks. Glad to know I didn’t missed anything major.

Ngl, I hate how boring the show is without “beyblades destroying the world”(I know there’s Phi and Aiga but they’re spiritual characters, more than unrealistic plot) but also with “beyblades destroying the world” it’s very cringe. I’m watching G-Revelution rn, the battles and the overall story is very good but...it’s missing something? Might be just me. I hope that they will be able to write good plot with fantasy one day

Also sorry if this sounded a bit odd. English is not my native launguage
(Didn’t meant to reply, sorry!)

One more thing also: Hell Salamander’s avatar is actually a (unintended) reference to Strata Dragoon’s bitbeast. I think Forneus and Hazard Kerberus is also a reference to some V-Force bitbeasts but I don’t really remember. Just thought it was nice.
