I had a feeling they'd do this somhow, I'm hopping to see Jimmy Ray, Shamus and the triplets from the Clubsplosion as well
Wow all these past Tournament COTDs and what not are to make an appearance in this league? Man I hope Edmond the Rain Man makes it here he was the coolest of em all. Emo at first then goin Uber Swift Swim mode when it rains, plus he seems to have the ability to activate Drizzle whenever he goes into battle, how cool is that.
It's nice to know that the writers did not forget about characters from the Club Battle and Clubsplosion (Dino, Antonio, Flora) and certain recurring characters out to collect badges like Katharine. It's still a shame that they chose to include the least interesting characters from those tournament arcs when we had the likes of Seamus, Angus/Getty/Betty, and Montgomery. It makes me a bit upset that the writers choose to have Ash eliminate Trip first when we have all of these recurring characters that could potentially get paired up to battle the major characters.
Wish Edmund was brought back :( But still, awesome that they did this. Will Rikio actually talk this time?
Holy... I think I see Jeffery from the DP series. The third person in the third to last row. Could just be a look-a-like though.
I'll let you decide.
Also, the third guy in the third row on left looks a lot like Shamus.
And the 2nd guy from left in the third last row looks a bit like Cress.
Behold the super high res
I haven't done enough research to recognize everyone. Perhaps this will clear some of them up, though.
Flora is in the league! Heck, a-barely-6-years-old-looking girl? Max, the writers really hate you. :P
So, it should be something like this:
Round 1 - 128 participants (BW103 - 104)
Round 2 - 64 (BW104 - ???)
Round 3 - 32
Round 4 - 16
Quarterfinals - 8
Semi-final - 4
Final - 2
