    I just hope Bianca's Pokemon have a good showing here. The other I read summary almost makes it sound like they're trying to make out Kotetsu as the underdog.

    They ALWAYS show skipped montage COTD battles in every league. The Sinnoh league did it with that brief match of Snorlax Vs. a Grumpig.

    Most likely there will be some skipped montage matches for Ash just to bump him up a rank.

    Well we see Emboar doing a flip in the first episode so at least that's cool.

    We already know that one or two rounds (most likely two) will have been glossed over by the time Ash faces Kotetsu (in the fourth round). After that, they obviously won't skip any full battle, so Ash won't be facing Virgil in the finals.

    Considering the league has sunk to one on one battles in the early rounds, no reason they would need to skip over something that would be finished in a minute anyway.

    Only the preliminaries, which are a single round, use the 1VS1 format. To be fair, the Unova League isn't any different than previous leagues in that regard. The preliminaries are only a problem here because Trip is involved, even though the writers could have easily had him battle Ash in a normal round at the expense of the (seemingly pointless) Axew episode.

    My suggestion is that if there are filler battles against COTDs in this episode to pad the number of rounds Ash competes in - with the assumption that just Trip's battle alone isn't enough for two episodes - it would make more sense to do a second round as 1 v 1 battles rather than flash through a longer battle.

    That said I don't think we'll see it at all - I think the rest of this episode will be spent on Ash's rivals, meaning BW106 will start the second round, rather than having extra filler battles to make it top 32. If they do filler battles, that just rubs in the already stupid idea of a 1 vs 1 battle for Trip and Ash.

    Three episodes into the league with only one round? I just can't see that. Nor does taking a break after one round make sense.

    I wonder if we'll get a hint of what it's about tonight.
    Looking forward to another battle frontier(probably sinnoh) which would look good..

    Trip's Serperior knows Energy Ball... Shocker. --____--

    It seems Kotetsu's Riolu knows Force Palm. There's another 'Sonic BoomISH' move, can't think of anything else... Riolu can't learn Sonic Boom.

    Well, judging from the preview its going to be very nice ep. My thoughts

    1. Ash vs Trip battle : Pikachu gets injured by Serperior's dragon tail and again attacks with energy ball. Ash will somehow get pikachu use volt tackle to be in close range of serperior and then tries Iron tail+Eletro ball combo to finish and make serperior faint.
    2. Bianca vs Kotetsu battle : 2 vs 2,, Escavalier goes first up with Samurott getting hit by Razor Shell(faints or not will be known in next ep). Next up, Emboar attacks Samurott. Riolu against Emboar injuring it severely. Hope we get to know who wins by the end.

    I highly doubt Riolu will win against Emboar having a type disadvantage. But its just a thought, more happy to see if it evolves into Lucario.

    So the writers give Serperior Energy Ball but don't really show it using Frenzy Plant or Solarbeam? Damn it, writers, if you are going to eliminate Trip next week at least don't make it seem like he is holding back here.

    Riolu's projectile attack is most likely Vacuum Wave.

    Vacuum wave most likely.

    I am convinced the reason they dumped Ash with stuff like mijumaru during the league is so they can get steamrollered by the eeveelutions.

    Ash Vs. Trip! In Top 128 Round? I thought they will skip their battles and battle in a Top 16 Round or something! And I assume that Ash, Bianca, Virgil and Kotetsu will move on to the final rounds because they are in different blocks! Ash, Trip and Stephan are in one block and a rest of them are in one block! Still, hope Ash wins the tourney by beating someone who is really strong!
