All jokes aside, I would predict a late 2013 or early 2014 airdate for this episode. I'm sure that some derp at the office accidentally put it up. Anyways, I think the episode will go like this:
Iris goes to Blackthorn City
Iris challenges Clair
Iris loses to Clair
Iris goes and trains
Iris finds a Gible and catches it
Iris challenges Clair again
And the journey continues!
Yeah, pretty much. Also, I hope this Gible will appear in XY. Maybe Ash will decide to get his Gible from Oak's? Poor little guy didn't feel like much of a use other than late-DP comic relief.

Plasma-dan!! episodes, which means one thing: The episodes are no longer postponed and are indeed banned. Now we'll never know what happened to the Meteonite or Pierce.

Iris and Cilan were treated as meeting Looker for the first time, even though we know Looker was going to appear in the skipped episodes - meaning that the skipped episodes were retconned out of canon. With the events of the skipped two-parter retconned out of canon, there's no point in airing those episodes anyway.
Kanto's Route 23 doesn't exist in the Johto games!
My ideas for a more game-faithful Best Wishes! series.
The Jewel Party
You may be right about that, but this Wikipedia article still says that TV Tokyo plans to air the episodes "eventually".
And George Hutcheon just informed me that my news article about the title possibly being unconfirmed is old news, which is why I added a deletion tag on it.
Title certainly does live up to Iris story and ambitions she set infront of herself. Heres hoping this special will shed more light on her dragon master career and what other steps it entails in order to become recognized and successful dragon master. Only thing known about it is learning how to achieve connection and complete understanding about dragons with skills being assessed by other experts until you prove yourself to be given this title from elders of dragon village.
From the looks of preview they showed it seems there will be heated battle going on between Dragonite and Clair Druddigon and i hope they wont disappoint making it detailed and complex involving some quick thinking and strategy from Iris side. It would be even better if duel was 2 on 2, but eh i doubt Axew will be used there.
I imagine Gible might be Clair gift to Iris after impressing her with knowledge and skilled use of dragon types. Who knows maybe we will see it evolved at least to Gabite whenever she makes cameo in XY(sadly likely her last appearance on screen if other girl faiths are any indication to use which is frustrating).
And what i found really cool and admiring was Iris running around seeing legendary Raiquaza briming with happiness and living her desire of becoming acknowledged and reputable dragon expert in world some day.
axew is gonna evolve, and if it does, it will prob be offscreen.
Well, my news article's now been deleted, since the special title removal was old news.
It's an injustice if they don't air this! I love Iris's character!
I hate it when they promote an episode and end up never being released (e.g. Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma special)
