    Am I the only one not surprised nor bothered by Bel going out early? She was never shown to be a serious rival.

    I'm not really bothered by it since I never really liked Bianca that much, but I'm a bit surprised since I thought she would get a bit further in the league.

    That doesn't excuse Pokémon Fan wrongly implying that she would become a force to reckon with. Many of us were hoping that she would do well since she is the only rival that had some measure of actual development.

    Was it stated in the magazine that Hahakomori is using Scissors Cross? It looks a bit different to Iwapalace's.
    It doesn't mention Leavanny in the scan, the captions underneath talk about Stephan's Pokemon.

    I didn't either but know it makes sense Sawk and Zebstrika are both kinda meh and obtained early so a Liepard makes sense. We should start calling him Youngster Stephan.

    I was actual hoping for either Bel or Kotetsu to carry on the tradition of a new trainer getting to the top sixteen in every series

    OS Ash
    AG Morrison
    DP Barry

    But I think they will keep this tradition with Kotetsu it's a neat little pattern that doesn't effect Ash much. So why not keep it.

    Actually, even just one 6VS6 battle should ensure that they will all get to battle at least once. But perhaps the later rounds against Kotetsu and Virgil will both be 6VS6 battles, especially as it would explain the Hydreigon in BW107 (which probably belongs to Kotetsu).
    I don't think Hydreigon is likely belong to any of Ash's known league rivals, rather it most likely belongs to...
    A)Some random COTD who Ash or one of his league rivals will easily beat, or...
    B)The Tobias-like league rival, assuming there is one in this league, who will inevitably beat Ash and win the league, possibly beating Virgil in the finals.

    I hope more for scenario B than A when it comes to Hydreigon and given Hydreigon is a powerful psuedo-legend, it will definately get one glory moment in the anime.
    Whether it is here in the Unova League or not remains to be seen.

    Why would a random COTD own Hydreigon when it could be given to Kotetsu?

    There is nothing that alludes to another Tobias-like rival. Virgil is the one that fits the description.

    She may not have really been treated much as a serious rival, but she has been shown to have the most improvement as a trainer of all the main rivals in BW - starting as an incompetent noob in the beginning to managing to advance to the top four in the Clubsplosion - and I wanted to see this growth continue by having her reach at least the top sixteen in the Unova League.

    Meh. Possibly just BW getting my hopes up for nothing.

    There is nothing that alludes to another Tobias-like rival. Virgil is the one that fits the description.
    For One, none of Ash's league rivals save Virgil would be worthy using a Hydreigon and two Virgil can't own a Hydreigon because his enitire lineup only consists of Eevee and its evos. Plus there is no concrete proof Kotetsu owns a Hydreigon whatsoever. I think that if a Tobias-like rival would be unlikely at this point of speculation then Hydreigon will be owned by a COTD where it will be defeated rather easily by Ash or one of his rivals, possibly Virgil.

    EDIT:Oh and also when I say Tobias-like rival, im talking someone who doesn't interact with Ash at all until thier fated battle, much less meet him beofre the league.

    I didn't even know Pokemon Fan ever said such a thing. When was this?

    And I didn't know what you were talking about then either. I can't find any magazine scan like that.

    I believe Silktree is referring to this scan.
    it says -
    Bianca & Emboar: "Before you notice it, she wins with unexpected (?!) strength! Once she is on a roll, her dream of conquering the League comes within reach!"

    I'm seeing a pattern with the out of pokeball cute pokemon and the Unova starters

    Pikachu beats Serperior
    Riolu presumably beats Emboar
    Eevee could very well beat Samurott just to complete the pattern.

    I highly doubt that Kotetsu and Virgil are going to battle, as that would leave Ash with just three major opponents.
