    I think the writers should have waited for Ash and Trip to have a full 6 on 6 battle. Just saying.

    Nice battles here. Pikachu vs. Jarolda was concluded very well, Iron Tail + Electro Ball combo was really something, I'm not surprised that it even took Jarolda down. The flashback during battle showing the earlier battles of Satoshi and Shooti with that great track from 14th movie was great too.

    Loved that moment when Pikachu and Riolu played with water, some Pokémon interacting without humans is always welcome.

    Bel vs Kotetsu, huh...Daikenki spammed that Hydro Cannon while Chevargo kept using Iron Defence and after that Daikenki charging towards Chevargo while using its seamitars looked really badass, nice animation here.
    I almost surprised by the fact that Daikenki is female, didn't knew that before watching the episode but her having a woman as VA...you probably saw that coming. Enbuoh knowing Meromero was quite weird.

    Not bad league episode at all, with all nice music used from 14th movie and decent animation.

    I liked it.

    Even though Bianca shouldn't have spammed Iron Defense with Chevargo, in my interpetation, what made her lose there was that she was trying to be smart in battle when she really isn't, and didn't know how to handle herself in that situation, Emboar vs Daikenki was nice, I really ROFL'd with Emboar using attract, and I liked that Daikenki lost, winning because of the type advantage would have been quite boring. Riolu vs Emboar was easily the high point for me, Copycat was really awesome in the animé, and his repeteaded Force Palms looked pretty powerful too... also, Flamethrower to the eyes, I repeat, FLAMETHROWER TO THE EYES! This Kotetsu kid is kinda brutal, as you can also see by PIN MISSILE TO THE MOUTH!

    Ash vs Shootie was also well done, even though i pffft'd at Ash's reccolection of all the times he lost to Shootie. Also, Serperior almost squeezed the life outta Pikachu, and I liked it, and I think it makes sense that it went down in a hit, even though this species is defense-geared in the games and is quite durable, I always got the impression that Shootie's wasn't, it was a Glass Cannon, so I connected it as the main reason as to why Shootie trained it to be evasive. Shootie's epic ''I Lost?!'' face is my new desktop btw. Also, it shows that the writers pretty much learned with their mistakes with him, and decided to wrap it up ASAP, which was good too.

    That's what i've been trying to point out over here and at Serebii, but it seems we still got people who still don't realise that, when Serperior put it's tail into the ground to nulify Pikachu's electricity and stop being shocked that was the tip off factor because if Serperior had it's "defense" status, it would've taken that Thunderbolt like a boss without doing that.

    At least Bianca set herself apart from Barry in that she got an on screen win against a worthy opponent, but it was her starter that got the win as usual--;

    That reminded me a lot of Pike Queen Lucy's Milotic, who even withstood(spl?) Pikachu's electric attacks because it had great defense, also, Shootie clearly prioritized evasion even in the Junior Cup, opting many times to use powerful moves that are also quick, so that the battle wouldn't get longer, the only time he didn't, was when Serperior squeezed Pikachu, and surprise surprise, it didn't work.


    And yeah, Barry was emasculated, basically.

    Thought this was a decent episode besides the fact that trip was rushed out..

    Also, this episode could have used a little less unova music and a little more Pre unova music D:

    I don't know about the OHKO move on Jolorda considering he should be resistant to electric moves so most the damage would've been from Iron Tail. I guess when you have a Pikachu that's fought against legendaries then it will beat regular pokemon easily. Truthfully, after tying with Latios, Pikachu should've owned all those gym battles by himself.

    I'd love if they'd bring the Darkrai Trainer back in the finals and this time for Ash to use his most powerful 6 pokemon.

    Yes, even I must admit that Ash VS Shooti's match could have finished better- however I must compliment the usage of a combination move, at the very least. Pikachu's fierce adamancy to stay conscious, for the lack of a better word, was also pleasant. But I'm still indifferent towards Shooti, even at the end. I was hoping that he'd remain for just a match, just to convey that he was properly watching one even after his defeat, but the old "put a dog out of its misery" route was fine by me. They could show a scene of him watching one later on, who knows.

    I expected nothing less than montage victories for Kotetsu and Bel, but I didn't predict they'd occur before Ash vanquishes over Shooti. Still, it was in a good structure, imo, because they could then join Dento and Iris to cheer Ash on, along with Kenyan, which they did. Kotetsu's Ferrothorn's Pin Missile to Eelektross' mouth, very ferocious, but efficient.

    Wow, those sauna scenes. Still, I think Kenyan to heartily slap someone on the back is just of his nature, so I didn't mind. The Moomoo Milk mention was also a nice touch, I think.

    Bel VS Kotetsu's match, didn't do Bel enough justice, in my personal opinion. I think Escavalier down to Samurott's Razor Shell is due to the fact that in a very literal sense, Iron Armour was strengthening its armour, and not its underbelly, which Kotetsu seemed to direct Samurott to strike. I could be totally incorrect in thinking that, though. They had an interesting moment with the sword fight scene, but they could have made that more thrilling.

    Aah, Emboar using Attract was a comedic and sly way to turn those tables. I mean, it wouldn't be something you'd assume, an intimidating Pokemon like that using such a move! I have to give Bel credit on that. I also adore how Emboar gets sick of Riolu's Force Palm, and hoists him into the air, it's probably one of my favourite moments in that match. Riolu's copycat was conveyed in a smooth way, and I loved it. I also have to comment on Bel fawning over Riolu and then snapping out of it; that was lovely, as sure, we're all allowed to be appealed by something, and Bel's no different, but she orders herself to focus, which was great.
    Poor darling though, I felt such pity for her when she cried. That wasn't a match that highlighted her and her development well enough, and I wish it was.

    Okay episode, though. I enjoyed some scenes.

    This episode has got a rating of 4.5.
    Slight improvement from prev ep rating of 4.2.. But still the writers need to give the league a lot to improve these ratings

    Trip loses, rightly so.
    All his Ws were cheap and lucky...
    For the last time, BW is NOT a reboot.

    Good riddance Shooti.

    So two new lackluster battles. Actually I liked Bel and Kotetsu's battle a lot more than the so-slow-i-almost-fell-asleep battle with Shooti. Seriously, it was boring to watch... The only midly exciting moment was the final blow and it was pretty meh itself.
    I was almost sure they would fast-forward every non Satoshi battle this time. So good to be wrong.

    Shooti made me sick of Jalorda. I feel like I should have picked Mijumaru as a starter...
