I'm sick of seeing Satoshi strip in public.

So I'm guessing we are going to get 5 battles next episode? Cilan/Trip, Iris/Watchdog, Bianca/Kenyan, Luke/random guy, and Ash/Langley?
So, here we are with the random middle of the story arc meeting of the rivals. Joltik was doing well until it got squooshed. Lance alike wins, probably because he just has to. COTD wins against other COTD. (both of these guys are bland, I don't care), and Ash wins against Burgundy, although she sorta had that coming to her. It certainly is neat to have this many rivals around at once, and they're all entertaining. For the people ragging on Trip, their rivalry is SUPPOSED to be different from the others. I will admit, however, that Paul was more well developed as a threat, whereas Trip is just a douche.
Step into the Fairy circle
I think we can all by now safely assume that Bianca knocking Ash into any source of water possible whenever she appears is a running gag :P
Lol besides that I loved this episode, seeing all the rival characters together sure is great and finally seeing Palpitoad in action too even if it was just for about 3 min ^^;
Then when Bianca ran into Dento in her first episode....was that eyecandy?!? XDDD
This episode was great. I enjoyed it. One of the things that stuck out to me (besides my inner N almost crying seeing the Pokemon getting hurt XD) was the fact that Cabernet has the "New taste" going on. I think the next time she battles Dento, she won't be such of a pushover. I think we will see a "new" Cabernet battle Dento next time, and if she wins that could lead to some good development for Dento ^^ so here's to a good future~
Fun fact: Burgundy has been raising her Stoutland ever since she got it as a Lillipup.
The COTD's Tranquill used Sky Attack, not Aerial Ace. My mistake.
Bianca is truly obsessed with Luke's Zorua and has been looking for it constantly throughout the entire episode, so much so Zorua disguised itself as Langley and pointed Bianca to another direction. There was a lot of comic relief and character interactions in this episode, which could explain why there was hardly any real battling in this episode.
I loved it when Ash was excited into believing that the group was in Nimbasa City, and had wanted to challenge the gym. Luke was confused before correcting Ash that they were in Nimbasa Town. The writers know that they have been taking a long time for the group to get to where they need to go.
I feel trolled. I was led to believe by the animator that the sexy Elesa would be in this episode...YET SHES NOWHERE IN SIGHT!!! And I thought this tournament was taking place in Nimbasa City, not a town. Though the shots they shown of Nimbasa City at the beginning with Team Rocket looked incredible!
Loved the interactions among Iris and Langley cause they're just hilarious, though I'm disappointed by the minimal interaction by Ash and Trip. Though Burgundy appeared to make up for Ash and Trip. It was also great to see Kenyan again and from what I'm reading...Everyone is mispronouncing his name? XD
Battles felt a bit short and I feel so bad for the poor Joltik Langley's Beratic crushed. Poor little Joltik :( Also disappointed that you could only register 3 Pokemon cause I wanted to see Oshawott battle and maybe now be much better with Aqua Jet perfected. I don't care about Palpitoad! I want the adorable and lovable little sea otter! The battle between Ash and Burgundy was alright and I'm wondering how many "premium brands" she'll go through cause I'm sure she considered Dewott her premium brand before Sawsbuck and now it's Stoudland.
It was alright though it's not what I was expecting. Disappointed they're showing M13 over the next episode and I'm even more pissed since Serebii states the after the 2nd part, there's gonna be another week delay for Part 3 for a damn Naruto special. WTF?

Zoroark movie from last year will take up Naruto Shippuden's timeslot next week. That timeslot had to be made up somehow, and this is why Pokemon will be skipped on the 28th.
It happens every single year. It is nothing to get upset over.

It's just timing, is all. The Plasma/Rocket arc that got postponed really put a damper on the timeline..
Otherwise the tournament arc would have aired in succession.
