    I don't, but her saying that she's going to Johto for the Wallace Cup would be redundant if what she really wanted was to start a new journey in that region.

    - In BW she comes to Unova to compete in something that has no relation to contests whatsoever

    - Now in this episode it says she's heading to Johto, as if the Hoenn quest was either forgotten about or swept under a rug. Did she even with the Hoenn Grand Festival then?


    Its like they're having her travel from Sinnoh, to Hoenn, to Unova, to Johto, and probably back to Hoenn again.
    So she travels a lot... and? She already completed the first three things on that list, so I don't know what else you guys expect her to do. Just sit around and not accomplish anything? If she wants to be a Top Coordinator she needs to travel around and enter everything she can. The Mikuri Cup is a big event, so of course she'd want to go no matter what else she's up to.

    I suspect Quilava Vs. Pikachu will end in a tie, like virtually 90% of the Ash and Dawn battles do.

    Dawn beating Ash would make BW Ash look even more pathetic, and Dawn losing would be too mean from a writers perspective. I suspect either double KO or their battle gets interrupted much like the Dawn/Cilan match was.

    There's nothing pathetic about that.

    I think pretty much most of them are weak.
    And yet all of them had some major battles against very strong opponents, have a close bond with their trainer and have a unique style of battling that can give Satoshi or anybody some trouble (Except Iris, because she mysteriously forgets herself for that battle). Equally, we saw synched up Satoshi and Pikachu get some very casual defeats against trainers of every caliber, from beginners to League Champions, they're not some unbeatable team.

    I think Satoshi'll win to hype him up for the League, but I don't think it would be unbelievable for Hikari to win.

    Trip shaking with Alder telling him wrong was compelling, Kotetssuuuuuu<3 was awesome, Iris playing with Riolu's ears was cute and Dawn leaving is great.

    Can't wait ^_^. The Trip and Alder battle has the potential to be one of the most compelling yet.

    Edit:

    Guys, what if Trip wins against Alder?

    Lol, it certainty looks like Serperior is smacking Bouffalant around. I hope this episode serves to show us a different side to Trip, he really needs it.

    Oh, and the battle between Ash/Dawn looks pretty good.

    Trip would likely be a mere opponent for the league, and Ash would likely lose to Kotetsu as his new rival.

    ....He IS the new rival? You had better live up to that position, boy. Actually...heh. It would be rather fitting for Samurott to be Ash's doom. It all comes full circle.

    Yeah, they're making it pretty obvious that this Kotetsu kid is the "new rival". His design is nothing to write home about, so hopefully he at least has a fun personality.

    Based on the preview;

    Seems like Trip is giving Bouffalant a run for its money. I suppose that the only reason Serperior is the ONLY Pokemon he used in all 4 rounds is for the audience to say that "Hey, this is his fully evolved Starter Pokemon and its pretty strong!"

    But I'm pretty sure the only reason for doing that is because if it were just a Pokemon barely trained Alder would end the match in no time flat, but for the sake of making the exhibition match good it had to be a Pokemon that could do damage to a Champion's.

    Still seems cheap seeing how it defeated 3 fire types and a Bug/Rock type. I suppose its because Trip raised it to such a high level that its stats both offensively and defensively can rival that of Pokemon who have an advantage over it. That's my alternative opinion besides saying that the writers are just rushing the Trip/Alder story-arc I guess...

    Seeing those sparks (light colored sparks) come off of Bouffalant's afro seems to imply that Solarbeam it took was absorbed due to Sap Sipper and Trip kind of shaking and commanding Dragon Tail means that its the only move that can damage it. Just a theory.

    Would be cool to see Leer be rendered useless due to Bouffalant's afro preventing it locking eyes with the attack.

    Pretty sure this won't stack up to the Paul/Brandon episode in DP, but hopefully this battle won't be crap and we get a good one to end the tournament.

    In your eyes, it didn't lead anywhere. In mine, it did. If Iris was to lose in the first round, for example, this whole Dragonite issue would've been completely ignored throughout the whole tournamet. Iris would've taken the same seat as Dento and Dawn currently has, and then the Dragonite problem would've been saved for some other episode, with it suddenly being solved before having any kind of development at all, since it would've been ignored in the tournament if she lost early.

    All these victories for Iris has lead to more development for Dragonite, and it's clear that it's still not over. So, when the issues between them finally are solved, it'll be justified considering all the development both of them went through in the tournament. That's what I see.

    And yet all of them had some major battles against very strong opponents, have a close bond with their trainer and have a unique style of battling that can give Satoshi or anybody some trouble (Except Iris, because she mysteriously forgets herself for that battle). Equally, we saw synched up Satoshi and Pikachu get some very casual defeats against trainers of every caliber, from beginners to League Champions, they're not some unbeatable team.

    I think Satoshi'll win to hype him up for the League, but I don't think it would be unbelievable for Hikari to win.
    I don't agree. Buneary, for an example, hasn't had a major battle against a very strong opponent since it fought Meditite. It had a battle with a Wailmer, but since Dawn pretty much remained surperior throughout the whole battle I wouldn't say that it was a ''major battle''. I also don't think Cyndaquil (now Quilava) was especially strong, but that was due to the reason that I never got to see it in a real 1 v 1 battle, but only double battles. It was clear to me that when it battled along Mamoswine, Mamoswine was the one who was truly causing all the damage. But, at the same time, Cyndaquil became amazingly powerful after it just had hatched, going toe-to-toe with Ash's Grotle.
    ---------------------
    Wow. I can't believe that Serperior actually is giving a Champion's Pokémon a run for its money. That's crazy. STUSTUSTUSTUSTU

    I actually started warming up to Trip in this tournament, but this is kinda ruining it, but I won't judge until I've seen the whole episode.

    Also, I already love the new rival! Apparently, people aren't too please with his design, but I love it. He seems rather chilidsh and determined, so hopefully he'll prove to be a great rival. I'm really looking forward to him.

    AND RIOLU!! IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIH!!

    AND IRIS IS TOUCHING IT, IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHH!!

    I love it how she always is so curious with Pokémon, and always have to touch and pull their cheeks. She reminds me of my own relationship with animals. xP
