    I know we all expected it, but it still is disappointing for him to loose in the top 8. Does anyone now doubt that he's regressed?

    Cameron's sixth pokemon was a Watchog, due to the silhouette.

    Dino had a Darmanitan (presumably evolved from his Darumaka), a Mandibuzz, a Cofagrigus, a Galvantula, and a Leavanny in addition to his Druddigon.

    Ramone had a Lilligant, a Seismitoad, a Chandelure, a Beartic, and a Durant in addition to the Stoutland that we saw him use during the WTJC.

    I laughed at the fact they treated Cameron like "Ash best friend for the rest in Unova", and Cameron didn't even give him a proper farewell. Way to go Cameron.

    Also, glad the league is over, atleast Lucario looked cool, Virgil won, woopdidoo.

    What's with the pointless clipshow? It didn't even show the most important things.

    Wow, that Eevee is a beast. I wonder if it's still possible that there's more to it?

    Imotaro, Katherine, nor Antonio made it past Top 8 and this disappoints me immensely. All the ugly characters beat them.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    While it is a shame that Ash lost, he did put up a great fight, and Virgil wasn't just cast aside. If anything, I think he deserved to win most of all, so I'm glad for that,

    So Ash came in the Top 8 again. Not only is it the third damn league he came in the same Top 8 rank, but he regressed from Sinnoh's Top 4.

    Pretty awful.

    Well, we all knew Ash was going to lose, seriously, why must the writers be so hard on Ash, at least it was a more honorable loss than with Tobias, so that's at least a step up, still, can they not give Ash at least ONE victory. Then again, the writers seem to be so biased about Ash overall, regardless of what he does. However, while everyone saw Ash's loss coming, that's not the thing about this episode that made me mad.

    ENTERING RANT MODE

    I really didn't like that Cameron lost to Virgil, SERIOUSLY, Lucario has a type advantage over Eevee's ty- oh wait, type advantages don't exist in the anime, but still, they made Lucario LOSE TO AN EEVEE just to market more of the Eeveelution franchise that's being released, and Lucario had it's own movie in the past, so I think Lucario deserves more respect than it was given in this episode. At least he retained his personality from Riolu though, that's always a good sign, but sadly, we're unlikely to see him and Cameron ever again, which is a shame, he may be an idiot, but I kinda liked the character in the end, and personally think he had a lot more potential than what was shown, but it made him rather pointless and into a basic "I only exist to beat Ash in the league" character.

    It be understandable if it was to Flareon or Espeon, as both have advantages over Lucario's typing, but to a plain, vanilla Eevee is just plain ridiculous.

    EXIT RANT MODE

    Also, it looks like we won't be seeing any of the rival characters ever again after this, since they seemed to have written them all off, I at LEAST hope to see Bianca again, she deserves to make another appearance in the future, especially with Cheren making his first (albeit late) appearance in the coming future.

    Overall, I'm giving this episode a 4/10, the writers know they can write better episodes, and more importantly, better league endings. Here's hoping that Episode N turns things around from what Best Wishes has been so far.

    Virgil switched to Flareon (from Espeon) to beat Lucario - Eevee beat Dino's Druddigon to win the overall league.

    I know not, and it makes me mad, they only did that to sell Eeveelution merchandise and nothing more.

    I don't see why the Eeveelutions getting major wins is a bad thing. Yes, they were there to sell merch. The whole series is about selling merch. But Eevee and her team were shown to be very capable Pokemon since they debuted (sans Leafeon.) And we did have Meowth-and-boots in the Hoenn League.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    As far as I'm concerned, Cameron deserved to lose. He should have actually been disqualified from his battle against Ash , since that was a Full Battle and he only took five with him.

    Oh and Floatzel, Lucario lost to the FIRE TYPED Flareon. Why are you suprised?

    I have claimed the Spell Tag and Kasib Berry, along with Adaptability and Shadow Ball. I have also claimed Gastly.

    If you think Nintendo need to sue PETA up the ass for making Pokemon Black and Blue, copy and paste this into your sig.

    Well, the Unova league was a pretty piss poor league. Hopefully Gen VI's is better. I lost all interest in the Unova series since shortly after the start of season 2, but have kept up with spoilers etc. Really bad.

    If episode N doesn't impress me, I'll just stop watching the anime altogether.

    From where did Kotetsu's Watchog come from?
    Didn't he refer to Riolu as his last Pokemon in 107 and how he thought that a full battle means 5 VS 5, or did I misunderstand?
