Hmmm...I didn't think about it that way. I tend to overestimate what several months means for a weekly show. It would technically be less than 30, but 30 is still a good estimate, but that's only the bare minimum of what we can expect. It could last past July, but we can't know. If it was, it would be even shorter than Orange, which was 35 eps. You're right, though, that leaves little time for any villain to show up if they will. Both Orange and Battle Frontier existed without a major villain plot, so there you go. I may say that Plasma could show up, but it's merely a formality. I think everyone that expected this to be like the games is fooling themselves. I think the writers realized that, and it could be why the TR vs TP thing may have been the only thing we were going to get. As for TP as seen in BW2, maybe they could still happen, but we no longer need the same event that happened in the games to happen here. I could still be proven wrong, for next year is still a colossal blank, but indeed, one can only fit so much into that amount of time. To expect another big villain event is silly except if TR is involved somehow. I expect it to last longer than that, though, although adding two more months to the count would hardly matter much. I just didn't realize how small the amount of eps were. In that case, it probably doesn't matter TR is taking a break even if it is for the rest of the gen.
