Ever since Clair was brought back into the picture I knew it'd be an excuse to get rid of Iris :P

Sure hope Charizard appears in this episode as well.
What will probably happen:
1) Clair catches the shiny Druddigon.
2) Iris battles Clair's Dragonite with her Dragonite and loses
3) Clair invites Iris to come to Blackthorn City to train with her. Iris can't decide and Clair gives her time to think about it.
4) Final episode of DA! Iris decides to go to Blackthorn City.
10 years. 10 LOOOOONG years I've been waiting for Clair to return and I sure as hell hope her Kingdra comes back, because when was the last time a Kingdra had a semi-major role in the anime? Since Ash battled Clair 10 years ago, that's when. And since then Kingdra have had cameo roles and only appeared for a few seconds! The last time one appeared in a cameo role was in the Manaphy movie!
*Rant over, I am angry*
Also, I think there may be a thing between the two Dragonites (Iris's and Clair's?) like there was between Pikachu and Buneary. Look at the poster. See it?
Time is running out...
THE TIME OF THE DOCTOR
I feel like this is the episode where Charizard will be returning to the Valley, or the following episode if Claire is still around. Charizard will probably end up in a battle against the Shiny Druddigon in the following episode, and than after a long fight, Ash leaves it with Clair to return to the Valley. Not really dealing with this episode, but I feel that Clair will be catching it during this ep.
Iris-centric episode. Sorry for ruining your dreams :3
Charizard won't have much role in this episode, even if it has battled Clair before. I am thinking this episode will be entirely focused on the relationship between Iris and Ibuki/Clair.
And unless they willingly spend some time showcasing her other Dragon Pokemon, I don't even see them showing Kingdra or any other Pokemon. The only one Ibuki will most likely be showcasing will be Kairyu.
I would like to post what exactly my speculation of this episode is..........but http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f228/bw-ibuki-iris-different-colored-crimgan-148819/index4.html#post4806921 has summarized it very well.
In other words no Charizard or very brief appearance of Charizard. Iris's Dragonite and Clair's Dragonite, Druddigon, Team Rocket and their Pokemon, Alexa/Pansy with her Elikiteru and camera. They can't shoehorn Charizard or Charizard's departure blah blah blah. Be grateful if they actually reference Charizard or show it out of its ball :p
Yeah, this is my humble opinion. But I am more than sure this will happen. I think I know how this show works a bit :3 If they do surprise me..........I am more than happy :P
Ever read an Ikari+Pearlshipping fic set in an AU?
Road to be a Pokemon Master <---Slightly Popular Tournament Fic featuring Ash.
Beyond Truths and Ideals<--Featuring a clash between Ash, N, Team Rocket,Team Plasma and much more.
50 Shippings to Boot With<--Mega Project to write 50 One-shots for 50 different Shippings.
Animation Director: Tomohiro Koyama.
So this episode will have subpar animation. That's a disappointment, I wanted one of the better animators to work on this.
New scans. Possible battle Clar vs Ash.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GO, GO, GO, <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
I want to start with XY as soon as is possible.
I have unpopular opinions: I prefer an older character returning but it isn't from the original trio. I was one of the few who liked both DP and BW. And I think that TR shouldn't leave in the anime.
Yep, Possible Battle with Ash and Clair which will be pretty cool and she has a Dragonite as well and I think was pretty Obvious I think but Cool.
Clair coming back does not mean Iris will be leaving the show anytime soon, but it is good to see Clair coming back after almost 10 years.
Atleast the OS will never be forgotten. I do wonder will Ash have another battle with Clair, atleast i hope so because that would be really damn great.
