    Really?

    I'm actually looking forward to Ash using Leavanny. Sure it didn't get a lot of time in its second stage, or really any, but at least they're not just gonna let it rot til the league.

    ....Although Palpitoad would have been nice too.

    I'm also happy with Ash using Leavanny.

    Sure, I'm not its biggest fan, but I thought it did quite good in its battle against Koffing, and it definitely deserves to show off some more of its skills that it put to great use during that battle. I doubt Ash and Leavanny will lose in the first round.

    Besides, do we know for certain that you can only use one Pokémon throughout the entire tournament?

    Yeah, after that battle with Koffing, I'm also interested about what else Leavanny can pull off during the tournament.
    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.

    I really doubt Ash will lose the first round. Leavanny seems like it's a strong Pokemon, so I'd be surprised to see it get taken down.

    Trip was in the two previous tournaments too, but still the two of them didn't get to battle. I'm not saying that I don't think they'll battle in this tournament, but what I'm saying is that Trip's presence in the tournament really has nothing to do with Ash getting to battle him.

    The only reason I want Trip to win this is so Ash can beat him in the league. Ash losing another random tournament isn't a big deal, but the league itself is the main event.

    Besides we'll get to see Trip meet and battle his idol here and be done with that story.

    Ash is going to beat him in the League regardless of whether or not Trip wins this tournament. He's still his main rival, for some reason, and they've saved Ash defeating his other main rivals in their first league battle in previous series. I don't think it's really necessary for Trip to win this tournament in order for that to happen. Plus, Trip already met Alder and had the chance to battle him and didn't take it because of how upset that he wasn't the same person he idolized for years.

    However, I think that this discussion is a bit too off-topic and would be more appropriate for the general Junior Cup thread than it is for this preview thread. So, I suggest that we return to discussing the Iris vs. Georgia match here instead.

    So...basically...if Ash loses in this, then he won't win in the Unova league?

    Actually, that may not be the truth if he continues training, but the Unova League is episodes away from the Junior Cup.

    Also, the League isn't relevant to this episode preview thread. Drop the subject.

    Is Dragonite using Thunder Punch in the scan on the previous page? It seems so, but I can't tell for definite...

    Well, when I wished for this Tournament to include rivals battling, I must say I didn't envisage it resulting in a match like that. Yes, I'm curious as to Langley's reaction towards Iris and her Dragonite during the course of this battle, and when Iris defeats Langley, which depresses me somewhat, as I think Langley should win. I think it'd be appropriate to split her response in two, given the circumstances. Towards Dragonite? I believe she'd quite admire a powerful, formidable pseudo-legendary Dragon such as Dragonite, and would be pleased with the honour of at least attempting to bust such a beast. She'd probably ramble that she certainly could have triumphed against it, just some little factor was absent or something along those lines.
    Towards Iris? Disappointed would be my bet. Firstly, Iris isn't technically winning this, due to Dragonite's disobedience, the win boils down to solely his performance during the battle, so it already looks unfair, as it isn't a traditional trainer-Pokemon combination winning this, nor is the more ideal relationship of trainer and Pokemon coming out as victorious. Secondly, the fact that Langley's using her Beartic, may be slightly irksome in the department that it is used quite a bit but it still portrays that Langley is sending out a well-trained Pokemon that we've known she's had since her debut, who is an ice-type Pokemon, trained to lend a helpful hand in busting Dragons against Iris' freshly caught, untrained pseudo-Legendary Dragon. It just looks like cavalier, and almost acts as a big slap in the fact to Langley and their rivalry. I feel that Langley's always been the one more keen on the progression of their rivalry, training Ice-types and other Pokemon to be formidable against Dragons, telling Iris to notice her abilities during battle and taking note of Iris' capabilities herself, bugging Iris on the timing of her succession to the title Dragon Master and vehemently vowing that she will defeat Iris to Cabernet in BW071, which I don't really think Iris has ever fully returned that concern, but in the way that Iris just sends out Dragonite is a bit of an insult towards Langley- sure, she likes busting Dragons, but she's your rival and if she goes through the bother to send out a trained Pokemon for you, you should at least be courteous and follow suit.
    Yes, I can comprehend that she may want to try out her new Pokemon, but really the Junior Cup seems a bit too penultimate and glorified for that now; your opponents are at a more competent stage of formability, taking such a risk should be detrimental at this stage.

    About Bel and Kenyan not appearing- that's a massive pity. Those two are vibrant and fun for both interactions and battles, in my view. I'm trying to think of as to why they're not here, saving them for the Unova League? But Ash, and even Shooti are competing, so I'm drawing a blank. It's odd too, because I think they'd be lured into such a tournament, too. They seem the like the type too.

    In regards to Cabernet obtaining a Darmanitan, I'm ambivalent- I think a brash, bold fighting type sort of suits her in a cute sense, however, it's Darmanitan. I would've still preferred something a bit more, well, exotic, I guess. In addition, her Sawsbuck hasn't been seen since her debut, so I wish she'd use it instead, but alas no. I wonder how far she'll triumph to- if she's up against Shooti first, well, she's going to be shot down, which is rather underwhelming. Still, since she performed very well in her last loss, I wonder how she fight this time around, if it's against him. I've a horrid feeling that she'll lose early, anyways, which I hope to be proven wrong on.

    I'm kinda okay with Kenyan/Stephan not appearing. He had his crowning moment of badassness in the last tournament.


    I do wish Bel/Bianca was here though. She was cool in the last tournament, but still hasn't really had a moment to shine. Also without her here, you pretty much only have Burgundy for comedic relief.
