In Dragon Ball Super Episode 86, Goku will meet Android 17 for the first time in the process of forming the Universe 7 team. Initially, 17 is going to turn down Goku’s proposal, but as Goku helps him to fight the poachers. He will end up agreeing to fight.
We see a spaceship coming towards earth in the preview, and from spoilers we know it’s just some Galactic Poachers, and 17 will defeat them with Goku’s assistance. 17 is now an animal reserve ranger, and much like 16 he also seems to care a lot about nature. Both Android 17 and 18 were originally humans, but Dr.Gero modified them and turned them into cyborg or enhanced humans. Essentially Dr. Gero messed with the nature doing this, and maybe that’s why 17 feel the need to preserve it.
Goku will also spar with 17, as he is testing everyone out. We see him go Super Saiyan Blue in the preview. Undoubtedly 17 is way stronger than he was before, but yet nowhere near SSB Goku. It’s probably Goku just introducing him to the level of power that will be in the battle royal. Also, since the Battle is not going to be about power only, Goku will not try to simply overpower him either. Future Trunks was able to get half hold of the God Ki just by training with SSB Vegeta, so we know there is some significance behind fighting with such a level of power.
Regarding 17’s power, since he is an enhanced artificial human, he can with training increase his power. We don’t know the potential they posses or at what rate their power increases. So, he could literally be at any level of power now. Frieza who was way weaker than Androids with only a few months of training was able to match SSB Goku, that was possible because of his natural abilities and the fact that he was a prodigy even among his superior race. So, if 17 trained he could literally be anywhere at this point.
The Galactic Poachers is an interesting concept, they shoot a beam right from their spaceship, and in this shot, it looks like 17 dealt with it, and is now flying towards them to cause trouble. This Goku-17 punch bump could be an attempt to neutralize the beam, but most likely it will be just a part of their mini fight.
There are some other interesting things that might be explored in this episode, like The Gods of Destruction are trying to do something against Goku and U7. Ignoring the explanation of Vados about how Goku is not responsible for all this rather he should be thanked. At this point, it’s just jealousy from the Gods part for Goku being way closer to Zeno than they were, even though he is just a mortal. We might also see another Pride Troopers segment as they recruit the strongest of U11, Jiren. We know Jiren’s power, but not why he is so powerful. So, it’ll be fine if they enlighten us a bit.
So, what are your last moment thoughts and predictions about this Episode?
How strong do you think 17 is now, and will he gain even more power as a result of fighting with SSB Goku?
