They really couldn't end the episode with her and Crimgan on bad terms, so Iris giving her the confidence to win wasn't a big deal. We'll never see her again anyway. When I saw Crigam doing Draco Meteor, and Dragon Pulse in the preview I knew Tepig didn't stand a chance knowing only 3 moves, and that Iris was going to give Emmi or w/e the courage to win. Ash was like whatev's. Pokabu seemed happy after the battle too.
