As soon I read that Iris defeats Georgia in the tournament on the Bulbanews article, I just thought "surprise, surprise", and will be battling Dawn next, but then when I read that Dragonite refuses to obey Iris, all I could think was "Wait, Iris enters that battle round against Georgia with an unruly Pokemon and still wins"?! And Iris will probably beat Dawn as well, no matter how much we all don't want to see that. I might as well expect that so I won't be as disappointed than if I put too much faith in Dawn.
I've got nothing else I can add that has already been said, so I'm going to stop here on that topic.
I'm glad to know Burgundy will be in this tournament - and seeing her with a Darmanitan actually sounds kinda funny.
