No air date announced.
The Unova league starts already in October/November?
Oh my gosh that fast.
Well they did say three months back in June. :-p
The question is what is going to happen in October. If the Drayden episode aired right after the Team Rocket two-parter, the league would start in late October, but instead everything seems to have been pushed to November. I find it hard to believe that Pokémon Fan neglected to mention some other episodes, even if they are relatively unimportant.
TV Tokyo revealed them. I guess the magazine just didn't want to go into those episodes.
What ticks me off is the fact that Ash's rivals are there in the league with Emboar, Samurott and Serperior, all powerful, big badass fully evolved starters. Then we got Ash with his little plushie army of Oshawott, Snivy and (to a certain extent) Pignite.
The Eevee guy looks like Ryota Kise. So, Trip using Serperior again?
Guess Kotestu figured out that the Isshu League wasn't in Jouto afterall :P
Damn, that three months went by fast.
Higaki City, eh?
It's probably a coincidence, but the name reminds me of Hiougi City. (Both are based on patterns that start with the same kanji)
wait, so we're getting another league rival in the eevee guy? is that not a bit much, we just got kotetsu or whatever his name is
What I don't like is that it looks like Ash vs Trip is in the first league episode. So either Trip loses in the first round again for the third time, or Ash does for no good reason. The latter won't happen and the former is anticlimactic (after that Trip/Iris glorification tournament), so I'm hoping that Ash/Trip is later down the line.
I have a bad feeling that Virgil is going to move pretty far, and Stephan/Bianca will take the back seat this time, again. It's a given that Kotetsu will move far, of course. Gotta show off those shiny new characters!
Holy dag, more rivals, more chance for BS. Samurott dude did not impress me, so my money is on the Eevee dude, as odd as that seems to me. The standard league length would plop us right at the beginning of January for the end, assuming this is in late November. I was not expecting that many eps to be inbetween the major events that needed to happen, unless I want to count Drayden as a third event. So our scenario is finally confirmed. The question remains what will come after the League.
I would prefer Ash taking Trip down in the first full battle round !
I wanna see Ash earning a victory that worth beating Trip 3 time in a row.
Anyway , I will be really pissed if Ash has to lose to Trip in a practice battle again without any reason since Trip got a Junior Cup already.
My first thought was that Trip and Serperior were just being hostile
Dosen't seem like Burgundy and Georgia are going to be here ;(
