    This was a great episode much much better than the previous two altough I liked the Elgyem one.

    Just when I was worried about Trip, the writers throw some bit of his past, what an amazing flashback, Alder is so ****ING COOL! Like Pepsi Plunge said he has that "vibe". The rivalry between Ash & Trip is interesting and it's nice he's teasing Ash... Ash needs to train harder.

    Yeah I'm glad it was a tie, many predicted Ash was going to lose again and give up on the episode before even watching it.

    One of best ep. so far this saga. 10/10

    I'm starting to like Trip a bit more. But who did Oshawott lose to? Vanilite?

    So I was wrong after seeing the episode pics; but still, at least Ash didn't lose.

    First of all, Oshawott faced Timburr, not Vanillite and Oshawott defeated Timburr. The match ended in a tie.

    Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

    Oh I see, it wasn't a 3 vs 3 battle! It was 3 individual 1 vs. 1 battles. I knew Oshawott defeated Timubrr, I just wanted to know if Ash and Trip tied, then that would have meant that Oshawott fainted. But I was wrong about the style of the match

    I'm glad it turned out to be a tie..... there is hope for this rivalry.

    I am semi-kidding about Snivy evolving. Those small hints during episodes doesn't confirm whether Snivy will evolve or not, but it does seem to point it in that direction. If Trip did insult Snivy's base form, it might mean Snivy won't evolve or it will stay as a Snivy for the majority of the series. Snivy lost to Servine... seemed pretty cheap.... [And rushed] so the argument does get invalid here about unevolved Pokemon beating their evolved form... Snivy beat Servine once, & then lost to it.... seems like were back at square one.

    Seemed rush to me.... same with this battle... they started the 3 on 3 battle right after the halfway commercial came on. The battles seemed short & rushed but whatever, Ash tied against Trip, so I'm not going to complain when I got what I wanted.

    It was a tie? I thought Ash won.

    Servine vs Snivy-Servine won, not surprised.

    Oshawott vs Timburr-Surprised it was the second battle. Oshawott won.

    Tepig vs Vanillite-Draw? I guess the pictures left out Tepig's knocked out face since it doesn't have the swirls on it's eyes in the pictures. I haven't seen the video yet.

    Regardless, this episode looks awesome to me.

    Cilan awesomeness is awesome.

    Learning a little about Trip is awesome.

    Alder appears via flashback. I can see this being foreshadow of Alder appearing at some point and ends up being disappointed in Trip. Bunch of stuff goes down.

    Timburr, Vanillite, Palpitoad, and Bouffalant debut.

    Awesome battle. Looks short and what not, but that hardly matters to me.

    Iris had her moment too.

    Overall it looks like a great episode. Can't wait to see it...whenever that will be.

    Yay! A tie, at last! The comment that Iris is scared of Ice-types is a nice touch, but I can't help but feel that it was probably thrown in when the concept of the Dragon Buster came to be. It would have been better if we learned this in The Bloom is on Axew!, but I can't complain.

    I really like how Alder appeared in this. Also, is anyone else reminded of Dia ( Adventures ) when Cilan is preparing meals for Ash, Iris, and the Pokemon? The animation seems different, or at least the backdrop was simply the best I've seen in awhile. ( the lake and forest )

    -The episode opens with...Dento cooking. Yawn.
    -Ash and Iris are playing in the trees, and a leaf falls in Dento's precious stew. He is NOT PLEASED. And...Dento accidently knocks his stew over, to his great horror. IT'S SHOCKING TIME?!
    -After the opening, we return to Dento being depressed(obviously) and Ash and Iris looking rather apolegetic.
    -Dento's voice gets terrifyingly deep when he's mad. And...actually, angry Dento is terrifying in general.
    -Then Iris whips out some apples while acting as if nothing is wrong at all. Dento calms down a bit, but he's still not happy.
    -Iris and Ash are arguing about whose fault it is, even though it's clearly BOTH their faults. Which is fine and dandy and all, but when are we going to get to Trip?
    -Now they're going to race to a tree? Well okay then.
    -Ash misses one of his vines, and starts sliding down a cliff. Sounds like a recipe for starting the REAL episode!
    -Meanwhile, Vanillite uses ice beam on Palpitoad! Yes, it's finally Trip time.
    -Ash happens to slide onto the scene just in time to be hit by Trip's Pokeball. Then Paliptoad makes its escape. Oops!
    -Trip is understandably annoyed that Ash cost him his capture. Ash is apolegetic. I'm sensing a theme here.
    -Iris catches up with Ash, and yes, she's scared of Ice types. It's pretty funny seeing her hair puff up like that. ...and Trip just calls her weird.
    -Iris says her fear has something to do with Dragon types being weak to Ice types, but Ash is just confused by all this.
    -Trip overhears Iris' comments about training Dragon Pokemon, which piques his interest...so he takes some pictures of her.
    -Meanwhile, Dento is making another delicious stew. He calls for Ash and Iris, but gets no response. So his next plan of action is...cooking more stuff!
    -Back where the action's at, Trip challenges Iris to a battle! Ash demands a battle instead(because he apparently doesn't understand that Trip might want to battle other people sometimes maybe possibly). Iris, on the other hand, just thinks about her troublemaking Excadrill and Emolga & declines the battle.
    -Ash insists on a battle again, and Trip just wonders if Ash's Pokemon have leveled up at all before wandering off to find Palpitoad again.
    -Iris pulls out the "call Trip a kid" card again, and it works again.
    -Ash brags about having three badges...but that backfires, since Trip has four!
    -I'm digging the BGM right now. Just fyi.
    -After the commercial break, we find that Dento has baked a cake! But wait, Ash and Iris are still late! Dwebble and Pansage searched for them to no avail, and Dento is somewhat depressed that they did fail. So he...oh, fuck it, I can't keep up the rhyming anymore. BACK TO THE BATTLE.
    -Trip's disappointed that Snivy still hasn't evolved. I swear to god this had better not be building up to Snivy NEVER evolving just to prove that it can still be strong without evolution.
    -Haha, Axew got so bored by Trip & Ash's arguing that it started yawning.
    -I just realized that the battle didn't actually start until halfway through the episode. GODDAMMIT.
    -Trip's Servine is strong enough to repel Attract with a simple Grass Mixer. Looks like Ash needs an actual plan!
    -ROUND ONE VICTOR: Trip!
    -Trip's babbling about levels again, and...wait, he just mentioned the Champion!
    -Flashback time! Little kid Trip is adorable!
    -Alder has a BUFFAFRO BOUFFALANT! And it knows Afro Break! (sorry, but that will forever be a cooler name than Head Smash) Hell yeah!
    -Aw, little Trip has big dreams of being the Champion someday. And Alder promises to battle Trip if he can get that far. Adorable!
    -The battle resumes, and Trip sends out Timburr! It has a deeper voice than I was anticipating.
    -Ash chooses Oshawott, which is kind of intimidated by the weird muscular thing pointing lumber at it.
    -Leading with Aqua Jet? That's...kind of a stupid choice, since Oshawott's still having trouble with it.
    -Oshawott flies around wildly, and...Trip seems to notice something, so he starts snapping pictures of it.
    -Ash demands to know why Trip was taking pictures of that, so Trip shows him photographic evidence of Oshawott's problem. It closes its eyes when using Aqua Jet! That's...surprisingly helpful of Trip.
    -After a short battle, Oshawott wins! ...there was literally no point to that except for Ash to discover the problem with Aqua Jet, wasn't there?
    -To round out the starter trio, Ash sends out Tepig as his last Pokemon! And Trip uses...Vanillite?
    -Watching Iris' hair puff out like that is still amusing.
    -I have to admit, despite my original "Trip has a derpy ice cream? Pffffffft" reaction, the animators really made Vanillite look respectable. (as respectable as a living ice cream can get, anyway)
    -It's a double knockout, meaning that the battle is a tie! That's better than having Ash flat-out lose, I guess.
    -The end-of-episode music's kicking in, Ash is recapping stuff about the Champion, the narrator's recapping the episode in general, and...wait, what about Dento?
    -After the narrator's "TO BE CONTINUED!"...Ash and Iris' stomachs growl. And Iris suddenly goes OH SHIT WE FORGOT ABOUT DENTO. The two of them run start running back! And at the lonely campground, it's (seriously dento just use engrish in your IT'S STUFF TIME phrases. I'm tired of going "what did he just say?") time. Dento looks rather defeated!

    As entertaining as the lunchtime antics were, they really did take up too much of the episode. All of the matches between Trip & Ash's Pokemon were way too short. :/ At least Trip is starting to show some depth beyond "ASH IS A HICK! I AM GOOD AT POKEMON BATTLES! I LIKE TO TAKE PICTURES!"?

    This episode was good. It was cool to see Dokkora, Gamagaru, Vanipeti and Baffuron (even though it was in a flashback) for the 1st time. Dokkora and Vanipeti look so much better in the Anime than the games, I'm really surprised. Dokkora has really become my favorite Fighting Pokemon evolution family. Gamagaru has become my favorite non-starter Water/Ground evolution family. It was cool to see Alder for the 1st time, even though it was only a flashback. Shooti was very cute as a little kid. Dent's reaction to the leaf falling into the stew he was cooking, and then knocking it over was very funny. It was interesting to see Ash joining in with Iris and doing vine swinging. As expected Ash falls down while swinging a vine, ends up running into a Gamagaru, preventing Shooti from completing the capture, making him very upset. The 3 on 3 battle was cool to see. Tsutarja vs Janovy was a very short battle, but this time Janovy wins, and it was shown that Janovy can now knock down her Attract attack. Tsutarja was finished in 1 hit, a Cut attack. Dokkora vs Mijumaru was a great battle, unfortunately Mijumaru's Aqua Jet attack still isn't working correctly, but Shooti figures out what is wrong, takes pictures and explains/shows Ash. It shows Shooti isn't really that bad of a person. Mijumaru's problem is that he has his eyes closed and is facing the wrong way, making it very difficult to aim the Aqua Jet attack correctly. Vanipeti vs Pokabu was a cool battle, it was very close and both Pokemon were neck and neck succeeding in hits, unfortunately the battle ended in a tie. It was funny when Ash and Iris realized they had forgotten all about Dent, and then the screen cuts back to him to end the episode.

    Finished watching it. Cilan's scene were even more awesome with sound. Seriously, he needs a spin off or something, he's just so awesome in every way.

    I do wish the battles would be a little longer but I'm fine with it since everything else in the episode was enjoyable for me.

    Timburr's voice was funny and interesting. I guess that's the same voice actor for Giovanni and Krokorok. Sounded awesome. Needless to say...Timburr is on steroids, voice proves it.

    Palpitoad and Vanillite's voices were nice as well. I don't think Bouffalant's voice was heard, or I just forgot what it sounded like already.

    Little Trip sounded nice. Alder also sounded nice.

    I enjoyed this episode a lot.

    am i the only one who thought the scene between oshawotts razorshell and timburs low kick to be seriously awesome. After timbur showed it could put out some muscle it just got sniped by oshawott. All I thought of was the good,bad, ugly finale.

    *i'm waiting to for someone to photoshot oshawott with a cowboy hat so i can sig it

    I loved this episode...it had a lot of new pokes, Alder in a flashback, Trip backstory, and Ash didn't lose!!...also, Iris, I feel your pain, I hate ice types too that's why I always carry a fire type to burn them and protect my dragons...anyways, a few small complaints...Snivy lost to one cut...that's a bit disappointing considering that it was cut...timburr's voice was really weird but oshawott was awesome...and how did vanillite live a flame charge and a direct ember...Tepig shouldn't have fainted but I guess it kind of did to make sure the battle was a tie...anyways, wonderful episode overall...also, the Cilan side antics was hilarious as well...

    I suppose now Alder will appear in a Trip based episode. No surprise there. Iris's fear of Ice types is kind of interesting, not funny but interesting, especially for future events. Rival battle was short but since it wasn't a total defeat I guess its better then nothing.

    I hope the level up thing leads to something and Satoshi evolves his pokemons...

    OH and there you go whiners, Shooti past revealed, he is a fan of Alder and always wanted to be the champion, he probably trained since he was a kid and that is why he is so good, I'm happy that i was right and the people that were purposely ignoring this **** which was so obvious got owned, " OH MAKES NO SENSE HE IS SO STRONG", shut it.
    Sorry, but was anyone actually not expecting there to be any kind of backstory at all for Trip? It wasn't surprising to me at least, especially when you consider the episode number this is: Paul got his development in DP040.

    Anyways, I can't watch this yet, I'll watch it tomorrow morning most likely and post my thoughts then, but it looks good so far. And I'm glad Oshawott won and it was a tie at least. Though I wish Tepig had won too giving the win to Ash, but I guess it's leading to some development for it in the future with it's depression after losing (or tying in this case).

    I liked Cilan before it was cool to like him. Anyway, I didn't think that this episode was anything special, really. We got tons of debuts, but apart from that, I wasn't excited. The first thing that I disliked about Ash's battle with Trip was that they used Snivy and Servine once again. Of course, I predicted the end result, but it was still painful to watch. I loved that we FINALLY got some character development for Trip. That flashback to Alder and Trip as a child was exactly what we needed. But yeah. Timburr versus Oshawott was the most intense part of the episode for me. While that Timburr was sporting around its wood, I was worried that Oshawott would faint. I was pleased to see Trip use his camera to take pictures of Aqua Jet, though. That was the smartest thing ever. I'm glad that Oshawott won that battle, but the episode was boring after that. A fire pig versus an ice cream cone seemed like something out of a dream, so I couldn't take it seriously. Still, I'm glad that Ash and Trip's battle ended in a draw. 8/10.

    Trip is more likable now. Well I never hated him he was meh, but now he's got a character to flesh out. I do have to give him props, he knows his "Basics" of Pokemon...a lot more then Ash does. This episode really made Trip his own character, or more of his own character.

    This was a pretty cool episode. Cilan's antics were funny as usual, and we finally got a little backstory for Trip, as well as Alder's first anime appearance. Ash and Trip's battle was entertaing even though it was short. It was a bit disappointing to see Snivy fall to just one Cut. Am I the only one who thinks his Cut is overpowered? It beat both Pikachu and Snivy. Oh well, it's her first "bad" loss, so I'll live with it. Looks like Ash may have to figure out a different strategy than Attract soon, it's failed the last few times they tried it (vs Frillish, vs Minccino, and vs Servine). Oshawott vs Timburr was easily my favorite part of the episode. Thanks to Trip, Ash learns why Oshawott has trouble with Aqua Jet, so hopefully he'll master it soon. Back to the battle, I never really liked the Conkeldurr family's design, but the anime made it look really cool. The way it battled both with and without its plank looked pretty awesome (especially that Low Kick). But it doesn't matter, because Oshawott wins! It was so badass when he put his shell back on his chest, knowing he won the battle. Tepig vs Vanillite (lol @ Iris' hair when she sees it) was okay, I guess, but it would've been nice to see it win rather than tie, considering it had the type advantage. I won't complain though, since Ash drawing with Trip is much better than him getting swept.

    Same here, I always thought Gliscor was an intimidating Pokemon, but I actually consider it to be one of the cutest Pokemon now after seeing that episode. I'm hoping they'll pull off the same thing with Oshawott if it evolves into Samurott, as far as keeping its personality intact despite its appearance. I think it'd be even funnier that way.

    I seriously expected him to be a relative of someone famous though.....like Caitlin (correct spelling?)

    Its nice that he wanted to become great through respecting Alder, but it would have been all the more fun if he had inherited family given skills.

    How about no?

    I was glad they weren't in this one and aren't in the next it seems.

    I'm fine with them appearing once in a while, not in every episode again.

    I'm just happy Ash didn't flat out lose. Snivy getting beat and Tepig tieing weren't unexpected, but Oshawott made the difference, here's hoping to it mastering Aqua Jet.

    It was nice to see some development with Shooti, him showing what happened with Aqua Jet showed him to be a little less of a jerk.

    Cilan being forgotten was golden! It really made me laugh.

    I enjoyed Trip's personality and how he has separated himself from being Paul's clone. His story and motivation to succeed was great.

    Sadly, the most important part of this episode was the battle and it was horrible.
