    Brycen already? Wow, the writers have wasted no time with getting Ash between Driftveil and Icirrus City have they? So does that mean he'll either lose to Brycen, resulting in a training arc, there'll be a long gap between Gyms 7/8 or between Gym 8 and the Elite 4?

    Fantastic to see Ash meeting Tepig's original trainer. I'm guessing this will be the episode where it evolves into Pignite?

    They're really rushing themselves to get the leaders done for BW2 in my opinion. It was a good sigh of relief when BW2 was confirmed as it sure explained what the hell they were doing with the first half of Best Wishes xD

    I don't think we'll have anymore long gaps for a while.

    The only gap in the story would probably before the league sometime in late July. Only time before it would be to seperate whatever the hell they plan on doing with plasma, and that's if they do anything.

    Or may be, they are rushing so that they can wrap up Isshu league soon asap and Ash can start wandering around in a new region (Plasma, Shadow Triad, E4 etc) ---> B2/W2.

    Looking at it, if we assume that Gen VI's primary pair will come out in Japan on 15th September 2013 (the second week of September, like most main series game), then that leaves another 70 episodes. Now, there could be another 50+ episode gap between Gyms 7 and 8 like there was in Sinnoh, or we could see an after Pokémon League arc in Unova. For example, if Black 2/White 2 introduces a Battle Frontier, then Ash, Iris and Cilan could travel around Eastern Unova (with the facilities spread around Lacunosa Town, Undella Town etc) or there could be a short arc where they travel to a new area that B2W2 introduces.

    Considering how many rivals we have in Best Wishes, I do hope that the Pokémon League is longer than the average 8 episodes though.

    Considering they will likely have Ash go to Eastern Unova after the league, I don't see it being a whole new region with new facilities. This isn't Battle Frontier.

    I don't understand why people WANT Unova to be long. There are no Contests and if it was as long as Sinnoh was we'd be seeing through never-ending god awful fillers that would bring the anime back down to Johto levels. The only reason DP got away with its length is due to the amount of important events happening in it.

    I never said it would be another region with facilities. I said they would EITHER go to a new post-game area (not region) introduced in B2W2
    OR
    Go to Eastern Unova, but have the Battle Frontier (if there is one), spread across the various towns there, to give them an excuse to travel around it.

    There has to be a reason for Ash & co to travel around Eastern Unova but right now, looking at the BW games, there isn't one (hell, was there even a reason for the players of the BW games?)

    I don't understand why people WANT Unova to be long.

    I never said I wanted it to be long. All I'm saying is, the anime series' are timed in relation to the release of the games, so the anime will be stretched out in some way until Ash can go to the Gen VI region.

    Some people think that a Champion League would prolong Best Wishes by two years. Go figure.

    Shame that we haven't even seen a single member of the Unova Elite 4 yet, other than the Champion. If the anime team was going to do a Champion League, DP was the season to do it - and yet they didn't.

    They certainly won't do another BF after they skipped the last one and I doubt BW2 will have new Gym leaders. At least certainly not 8 new ones.

    I think that whatever new content that BW2 adds will be adapted to the anime in some way. They probably will continue the fast pace so they can start focusing on a filler like arc after the league.

    Conversely, they could do a long filler with BW2 content right after the 8th Gym and then finish the Unova league next year before Gen 6.

    Even if B2W2 has new Gym Leaders, all of the BW Gym Leaders have appeared in the anime, so it's not like the writers can do a Juan and randomly put them in (despite having them use the previous gym leader's team).

    Sure, not doing the Battle Frontier for Sinnoh was a pretty stupid move (Especially considering Caitlin) but what else can they do? If Ash is to go to towns in Eastern Unova, he needs a reason to do so. IF B2W2 has a Battle Frontier, there's a good chance it will be that. If B2W2 has something different instead, there's a chance it will be that.
