I kind of wish Dawn would've gone to Hoenn, which is what I'd originally assumed. Not only would it have been a fresh change since Hoenn really hasn't been mentioned in awhile, but maybe she could've experienced what the original, toned-down contests were like. Excuse me if I'm wrong because I didn't watch with subs, but I wonder why they made the Wallace Cup in Johto...did Dawn explain anything about that? Just curious.
Also, does anyone know what Burgundy said to Cilan before she left? And are she and Georgia gone for good, or just for this season?
I pretty much agree with everyone else about this arc; Dawn's cameo was nice and expected but I really wish they would've done at least something with her! They should've featured an episode with her catching a Unova pokemon; that would've been cool. After all, even though May didn't catch any Sinnoh pokemon, she got the chance to show off newly-evolved Glaceon, Venusaur, and Wartortle. The Quilava appearance was okay, though...but the battle really wasn't that great. =/ Sigh; sometimes I feel like the only reason Dawn was even there was to provide the comic relief between Piplup and Oshawott...
Speaking of which, that was a cute ending. ^_^
