    Stephan from BW. I know he wasn't a permanent rival, but in the end he turned out to be the best rival in BW, imo. He was serious about training. He cared about his pokemons, and he had a friendly rivalry with Ash.

    Rivals don't have to be jerks to appeal. A main rival who knows honor and respect would be a very nice change from the previous series. If this ninja is arrogant...well, depending on how they handle him/her, I guess they'd be likable. Though, still I'd prefer a nice person.

    Sampei/Sanpei is a boy's name, just a heads up.

    If you mean something like the starters will get the most focus in the series this time around, then I can see how that's a bad thing. I wouldn't worry about that so early in the series. Ash only has 3 pokemon on hand (Pikachu, Fletchling, Fraokie) Serena only has Fennekin, and Clemont/Bonnie have 3 as well (Bunnelby, Dedenne, Chespin). When Ash has a full roster, then worry. I rather not another BW thing where even though Ash had 9(?) Pokemon in total, it was always Pikachu/Starters with maybe Scraggy with the most focus.

    Right now they are just showing off the personalities. Froakie might not get another focus episode for another 15 episodes, who knows?
    Foxeaf and Aurorus like this.

    I hope he is a Rival recurring character for one or more episodes or just a COTD who helps out Ash and Froakie with a new move after having a battle against each other. By rival recurring character I mean one that's only around for a few consecutive episodes instead of throughout the series. He definitely looks like he'll have a great personality to show off in this episode.

    Kenyan was a permanent rival, only not the main rival in BW (sadly, he would have made a much better rival than Shootie and Kotetsu).

    But I get your point and I agree. I love Shinji's character, but they should avoid extremely serious or jerk rivals this time, imo.

    Anyway, wasn't the ninja a girl?

    If you ask me Froakie starts to be overused. This ep, the first eps of the saga, the coming Sylveon ep...

    Another new move (besides Double Team)?

    It looks like maybe the Generation VI version of Smack Down? since they are high up in the trees. It's pretty cool seeing them both training in the trees, and Froakie learning Double Team to help take down the next mecha.

    It could also be Pound, and it being a move that Froakie's revealed to learn instead of being taught. Which would make Double Team the one move he learns in this episode.

    So it looks like they are rounding off Froakie's move set for now. Sweet. I like that we are getting a few focus eps already. Much rather they establish a story and a personality early on so we get to properly know a pokemon before more come along and the spotlight gets diluted. Hopefully Fletchling gets a few more too before it evolves.

    The mecha TRio used when Froakie used Double Team was ninja-themed, so that scene happened in this episode.

    I have to say, I am a bit disappointed that Froakie can use that move. I know it's a ninja-esque attack, but Double Team is already a bit repetitive since Fletchling can also use it.

    As for Froakie's other move, anything goes. The move animations are not the same as they were in BW, but they sure aren't exactly the pre-BW animations either.

    Smack Down could be a possibility,they are jumping from trees and what not, but I'm going to swing more towards Pound.

    It reminded me of that Battle Frontier episode where Ash was running with his Sceptile in the forest.

    Yeah, I thought Pound would make more sense being a simple animation like that.

    I'm glad that Froakie is getting a polished moveset early on, because it's obvious it's gonna play a major role later on in the series (If it evolves)

    So can Pikachu, but with it's speed, Quick Attack is a better option.

    I can see that being plausible.

    In the the new upcoming episodes trailer, we see Froakie using Double Team on a Team Rocket mecha which sort of resembles a Ninja.

    We also see Sempei's Frogadier using what appears to be Double Team in the same episode but the animation made it look like Quick Attack so I'm not sure.

    Up until now it's shown no knowledge of having Double Team in it's arsenal, so I think it's highly likely that it will learn it in that episode.

    Oh yeah, I'm new to the forum so it's nice to meet you, and Merry Christmas all.~

    I look forward to seeing how he learns his new attack, looks pretty cool from the trailer. Don't know about this guy being an actual big time rival for Ash, an easy win at best for him.

    I like the return of competitive Ash, always fun to see :D

    I hope this battle is more like when Treecko and Gligar battled their evos over the other pre vs evolved Pokemon. I like Froakie and all but at this point I'm desperate for him to achieve greater heights then he ever could if he remained as he is.


    Best Wishes to BW!
