Not a battle i know but i didn't know where to post it anywhere else so here goes: How strong do you think Goku is when he merged with Shenron at the end of GT?. Will Goku inherit Shenron's Wishing Powers or will it be more like seperate powers something like The Shadow Dragons control over Fire/Wind/Water etc. Do you think that Shenron has an positive energy form, The Black Smoke Dragon was created because the Dragonballs had to much Negative Energy, so is the Default Shenron an already positive Shenron or something like Neurtal. If Goku inherits Shenron's Wishing Powers, could he use them freely or will he have limitations. How big a power boost will Goku have when merging with Shenron, Shenron as he normally apears is physically very weak, King Piccolo i believe killed Shenron with an Energy Blast, but when filled with Negative Energy and later split into the 7 Shadow Dragons, there all very powerfull, Syn Shenron being the strongest.
Its clear that Shenron is not all-powerfull because he displayed that he has limitations such as: Not able to restore the Barrier from Other World/Hell/Heaven that Janemba destroyed. Not turning Android 17/18 into Humans. There was another weird instance after the Frieza saga, Goku's friends tried to wish Goku back to Earth after they found out he was alife, when everybody was exstatic about Goku returning to Earth Shenron interupted and said: *Goku refuses to return and says he come back later* now this strikes me as weird because if i remember correctly Shenron does not wait for nobody he just fufills his wish and goes away no bargain is ever struck, yet somehow Goku was able to tell Shenron that he will not come back, did he block Shenron's power or asked not to be wished back or am i looking to much into it. :)
Just to be clear this is Regular Shenron not Porunga or even The Ultimate Shenron who is the most powerfull Deity in DBZ Universe: http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Eternal_dragon
I know this is mostly an guessing game but i would like to hear your idea's about it. If this Goku does turn out to be strong but not invincible maybe i could use him in battles :)
