Usually, I don't reply to these threads until I have actually seen the episode, but maybe I'll start a new trend.
by looking at the pictures from this episode it looks like it's going to be one of the, at least to me, more exciting contest episodes.
And, holy moly! I was thinking to myself "that would be funny if that Ursula girl came back in the final contes before the Grand Festival...", and she is here! Awesome! Even though she's kind of...not nice toward Dawn, I kind of like her character. Looks like she still has her Gabite. Let's see if she gets a Garchomp before she makes it to the Grand Festival. If she makes it to the Grand Festival. Urusula's...second round appeal? (is that what it's called? I forget) looks like it's going to be pretty cool-looking when I finally see it in motion. What Gabite does with Jigglypuff is going to look pretty epic.
Well, I'll try to come back when I have actually seen the episode.
