    I hope Samurott wins vs Mantine here.

    Oh good, it's not another Axew kidnapping episode right after the tournament.

    I guess it is neat that they're showcasing another of the new gyms in the BW2 games, even if it may be just to watch a CotD (possibly) battle one.

    Not sure if I'm the only one who thought of this, but Kotetsu looks a lot like this guy:

    Kotetsu is most likely the character that explains the "meeting" part of the previous episode's title. I wouldn't be surprised if he were Ash's last opponent in the league.

    Because he looks...plain.
    Considering Trip's design, I think characters looking plain don't matter anymore.

    Whoops! It should have been Dageki for it to be Sawk, not Daikenki xD. Thanks!

    I completely agree. Just because they don't have an unnatural design, it doesn't mean that they'll suck. He looks like a fun person. His name is odd, though. Ko means "child" and testu means "iron" in Japanese. "Iron Child"?

    It's a Japanese name (which is a little strange since all the recurring characters in Unova have had foreign names). His name could also be written as 小鉄 ("little" + "iron"), 古鉄 ("old" + "iron"), 小哲 ("little"+"wise"), or 虎徹 ("tiger" + "pierce"; Japanese swordsmaker; Wild Tiger).

    This raises the possibility that he's a trainer who has travelled in other regions and competed in their Pokemon Leagues.

    Thanks! "Tiger Pierce" is probably the name the writers intended for him since he's using Samurott, a Pokemon who is a sword master with its shellsword (Daikenki means Big Sword too).

    Then why are they making an entire episode having him challenge a Gym leader? We usually only see that happen with established rivals, like Gary challenging Viridian Gym, Paul Vs. Roark, etc.
    True, and they needed to showcase Marlon in some form, but having a basic CoTD as it appears fight a Gym leader is a bit odd to say...

    I'm not sure, Kotetsu looks rather... plain for a rival, I was expecting Hugh or someone like that to be facing off Marlon, which is an interesting sight.

    Considering titles like Pochama vs Yannapu I doubt this means that Kotetsu is particularly significant.

    It is not as if Dawn wasn't focused on in that episode. Besides, the summary says that Ash heads to the Seigaiha Gym to watch Kotetsu's battle; it doesn't get much clearer than that.

    Finally, the last of the starter final evos appears in the regular anime. My only hope is that it's given the fanfare it deserves. I'm also relieved that it didn't get foisted onto Burgundy.

    While that may be possible, Ash usually battles characters/rivals that are introduced relatively later than other recurring characters in the anime first in league competitions. Of course, this is assuming Kotetsu is indeed the "new rival" that has been up to speculation so far.
