    Simple: fanservice.

    trip was always going to win the tournament, but i highly doubt he'll beat alder. he hasn't ~matured or ~learned enough about himself yet or w/e ;p

    also it would be fun if dawn travelled with the gang for a while, but misty & may's next-gen cameos were both pretty short so i'm pretty sure it won't happen... which is a shame. having two girls in the group could be an interesting change of pace.

    still, i'm looking forward to this episode. trip's hero worship of alder is pretty adorable ngl

Her Togekiss, Quilava, Buneary, and Pachirisu have not been used at all and I really want to see them in action, not just Piplup and Mamoswine.
    I hope you're right; I would hate to see Dawn go back to Hoenn without having done something important. She came to develop her skills as a Coordinator but so far we couldn't see these skills into practice because her battles have been interrupted or lasted less than a minute. I also want to see her other Pokémon in action, especially Quilava and Togekiss.

    I knew this was going to happen but still I can't help but feel sorry for Ash who had to go up against and get past a MurderNite just to get to the finals, just to only to lose it to someone who quite frankly should be less powerful than the one who he just beat. Seeing a joke like Trip beat Ash here makes Ash himself look like a joke as well when Iris could have easily murderstomped Trip with her Dragonite and that is what Grinds Mah Gears.

    Now i can take Trip winning this tournament with more leniency if Trip beat Cilan in the quarterfinals beforehand, if only to re-credibilize Trip from the previous two humiliating losses in which he lost to two rather weak opponents in Cilan and Bianca.

    Typical outcome. Look forward to seeing how it will effect Shooty's persona as he'll most likely lose against Adeku.

    Dent's not weak, he is a Gym Leader. I wonder if Shooty will start rethinking the way he goes by things after this.

    A: They brought misty and May back for insignificant events
    B: Dawn appeared in the junior cup festival. Insignificant or not, she was brought back for fandom and this was a good excuse.

    Out of all of Ash's returning partners, Dawn has been here for the longest so I wont be surprised if the "farewell" bit is referring to Dawn, although I dont think Dawn will just become a forgotten character AKA I dont think this is her final appearance.

    Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig

    Dent's not weak, he is a Gym Leader. I wonder if Shooty will start rethinking the way he goes by things after this.
    He might be a former gym leader, but look what happened to Brock, a former gym leader who went traveling. He ended up becoming much weaker, so much weaker that Paul was able to murderstomp him so very bad at the Hearthome tag tournament. Now, Dent is somewhat formiddable but I believe he should be a nobody compared to Ash main rival Trip, who before suffering humiliating losses, was shown to be as skilled a battler as Paul though not as strong due to Trip still being a rookie.

    As for the tournament's aftermath, I believe this isn't the last we see from Trip and of course Alder is gonna murk him. Maybe Alder might toy around with Trip like he did Ash previously before he will decide to end the battle in one fell swoop with Trip suffering another on screen humiliating defeat although this would be more acceptable than Trip losing to Cilan and Bianca.

    If this is indeed Dawn's farewell then I have to say from this stand point that I think bringing her back was completely pointless. I'm thinking they needed Cynthia most of all but thought "Hey, why not put Dawn too?" It was not a good time for her to comeback and sadly this will be her only time. It may have been longer than the other returning females but she was treated the worst if you ask me.

    Now, back to the preview. I figured Trip would be in the finals as they writers don't like Ash beating his main rivals pre league. Either that or I was expecting Trip to maybe lose to one of the CODs (Hirokazu, Marufuji, or Akihiro) and one of them winning the whole thing like they did in the original series. Either way I knew Ash wasn't going to win.

    Anyway, it would be pretty funny if Alder's Bouffalant's ability was Sap Sipper and I'm hoping it is.

    This these tournaments really get on nerves because the are one on one. I hate one on one. Shorter less variety of pokemon and in story doesn't really prove that one trainer is better or not due to certain pokemon having advantages against others. And now a single one on one battle is left over and they have an entire episode to fill I have a bad feeling about this. Unless they got something substantial planned for the rest episode I smell a lot of padding. Bad jokes and eating scenes ho! Though they can introduce the grandson character.

    If Trip's going to use Serperior in all of the 5 battles I won't think of him as a threat.

    I'm going to assume the leaving is Hikari. Whatever, the tournament is over, and that's why she was there.

    I am really, really excited that Shooti is going to challenge Adeku. I hope that Adeku wins to show him that even though he's not the most professional, he's still Champion for a reason :P

    Trip winning was pretty predictable. I hope the battle before Alder isn't Pikachu vs Serperior. That would mean Pikachu has lost to it as a Snivy, Servine and Serperior. Some one made the point that if Trip uses Serperior for every match than he wouldn't be as threatening. I agree with that. Mix it up Bud. Some Conkledurr redemption would be nice.

    Im sure Alder will win, then Ash will beat Trip in the league

    Eh, this was the obvious outcome when we found out Iris was going to lose, so I don't mind. I'm really, really looking forward to Alder flattening Trip, though :3
