Anyways I really doubt that Burgundy, Langley and Luke will be entering. I mean with Conway it made sense we didn't know his goal and he knew a lot about battling. And he showed up at trainer events. Langley and Burgundy have non trainer goals. Langley's goal is just to beat dragons so being in the league kinda makes sense but Burgundy already has her hands full. Langley's goal seems hard to dedicate a lot of time too seeing as there are only so many dragon trainers out there but Burgundy has a goal that requires a lot of studying and is pretty easy to know what to do: study. Luke goal isn't even related to pokemon battling so highly doubt he will enter.
As for Trip he should make it to the top sixteen seeing as he is a new trainer and in each series a new trainer gets to the top sixteen. Ash, Morrison then Barry. So trip should follow suit I guess Bianca or the new rival can take that slot but I think it works with Trip and he would take it the hardest and in the OS Ash took it hard nice little homage which fits right in with BW. As for Bianca winning this is her first but then again she is older so it can work but I wouldn't bet on it seeing as how Ash was at his absolute DUMBEST during his fight with Elesa yet won and Bel got curbed stomped by her.
As for Ash winning if Ash suddenling stops being BW Ash and all his pokemon seem strong and he earns his victories with no explanation I would eat the bullshit up like cheerios cause it didn't have an explained cause why would need a good explanation. Honestly it is possible wouldn't bet on it though and I'm not going to be at all shocked when he loses (actually I might because I'll be off of all pokemon related stuff for duration of the league and if you are watching it things are more likely to surprise you but that's besides the point).
Anyways I'm still hoping for fields. Fields are cool.

Or else, Ash already have enough rivals IMO and there will be no need to introduce a new one.

I hope Team Rocket steals Trip's badges before the league.
If we are seeing another rival vs rival, it will be Bianca beating Steven, she lost to him twice and it will be a good indication of her progression if we see her win, Stephan is too good of friends with Ash, it'd be like battling Morrison and have Staven and Trip said more than two words to each other?
Hopefully New Rival will take care of Trip early.
The sad thing is that he had potential. BW022 and 031 gave him some much needed development, but then it was almost immediately forgotten in favor of him being an odd cross between Gary and Paul and having him get his but kicked. A lot.
When Gym Leaders have more depth, personality and skill than someone who's shown up ina lot more episodes, that's a problem
If they'd handeld his character better I might would've wanted him to stick around. But as it stands now I don't think I'd feel sad to see him go.
Trip never had potential. Right from his debut ep after he beat Ash after JUST getting his first pokemon, and his design being a ripoff of Paul's, you knew his character was destined to fail.

I hope the league gets interrupted like in BW. I would prefer team plasma interrupt during ashes battle with trip but I would except team rocket doing the same
