Airing November 15th.
I wonder what the ice in the background is about. The episode may take place in the Giant Chasm, but I don't see Kyurem having much of a role.
it is a frozen dam, and the kid is a "rescuer" doing work there. it shows the eevees battling some crygonals, which is probably the reason. that is the entire episode's plot right there folks!
@sunyshore What do you make of the air date? Most of the Eevee goods will be on sale starting from October, and we have three weeks in that month that are unaccounted for. What could explain this?
This guy is also going to be in the league, so there's no reason for the writers to give anyone an Eevee when we'll just seem them all again soon.
So does this guy own every eevee? and he will most likely use them in the league if we see him?
If I didn't know better, I would have thought that this guy's name was a corruption of Banjirou (Virgil = Baajiru) :P
Why not just keep his Eevee as it? That way he truly has Eevee and all of its forms. Maybe it won't want to evolve at all?
Oh wait we had this plot before in Kanto...
If Virgil is the opponent Ash ends up losing to in the league, which I think is likely, it will be interesting to see which Pokémon he will use last (presumably against Pikachu). I can't see any of the seven Eeveelutions being promoted over the others, but I don't see Eevee being glorified as it were Virgil's strongest Pokémon. Considering that the league will most likely end in mid-January, it is certainly possible that the Generation VI promotion will have started by then, allowing Virgil's Eevee to evolve into a new Pokémon that would appropriately stand out as Virgil's last resort. It would be similar to what happened with Blaziken in the Johto League.
I have a sinking feeling he'll give the Eevee to Cilan. *If* the possibility of him giving it to anyone is there. ._.
So it looks like Virgil is this league's "gimmick trainer". First it was Trollbias, now him.
Eeveelutions...eeveelutions everywhere! Even at the league!! Oh boy...Virgil needs a to be a VERY interesting character to make up for his lackluster Pokémon team. :/
Why are the writers introducing league rivals this late into the series when BW is already full of great rivals ( besides Shootie) they can use?
Most people would only use one of the Eeveelutions, does Virgil breed Eevees for a living or something. The fact that Virgil is competing in the League gives me the feeling that he, like Kotetsu, is going to be one of those "I only exist to beat Ash in the league" characters, even if he does have a rather lackluster team of all Eeveelutions, but maybe it's not really his real team, maybe he has other Pokemon besides Eevee. On another note, Virgil looks a lot like Trip in appearance, maybe they're brothers or something, I have no idea.
Wow, another episode where all of the current members of the Eevee line are gathered together as a group.
But if Virgil caught all seven Eeveelutions, then how can he have them out at once if trainers can only keep six captured pokemon with them at a time?
