Seriously Ash you never noticed until Trip told you that Oshawott's eyes weren't open, you who has 4 league tournaments & a offer to become a Frontier Brain under your belt seriously can't tell that the reason Aqua Jet wasn't hitting cause a Water Pokemon has it's eyes closed. Also stop with Iris's questioning of Ash's knowledge of Unova, he is from Kanto & this is his first time in Unova.
This is the 5th season writers we don't need another stupid Psyduck type Pokemon or Iris's continual criticism of Ash, it's lazy writing and a stupid joke.

I expected a more intense battle from both of them but all the three rounds were over in 1 or 2 hits and there was more talk and less battling... but still it was a good prospect for Ash
It wasn't a very enjoyable battle... but at least they showed Alder
Trip annoys me although getting to see Alder was good and also it showed a bit into Trips background. At least Ash managed a draw this time.
I'm guessing Ash has his third battle against Trip in this episode.
Wow, just when I wanted Trip to win, he goes and loses on me.
I like Trip's Pokemon. My BW team had most of his Pokemon.
Coolest Eevee evolution ever!
It hurts to see Ash say "I have three badges" and know that he has more back in Pallet. Iris attitude before the battle was the same one I had as well. They're trying really hard to make this guy seem competent. Seriously though, Ash looks pretty damn pathetic next to this rival. The battle was pretty boring on its ow though.

Hahahaha, I love the ending of this episode, with poor Cilan left behind. I forgot about him for a while too, like Ash and Iris did. I liked how he got irritated by their antics at the beginning of the episode and made them go away. LOL
Too bad Trip drags things down, but at least he provides Ash with something useful by showing him why Oshawott keeps messing up his aqua jet.

The Ash, Iris and Trip interactions where the highlight of the episode. Trip was way more likable here then in his past episodes and this episode fleshed out his character. Sucks that the writers didn't keep this up.
Will this is the only episode I might like Trip in because he wasn't being to much of a jerk in this one then all of his other appearenes in the past or now. But it is still taking another charaters story and that is not cool.
How is he taking another character's story? Ash technically takes the stories of the other game protagonists by being in a region that they should be in instead.

He is taking Cheren story bit
Ash and Trip's battle was good. I found it funny when Trip was clicking Iris's pictures and she yelled at him.

Cilan was really odd looking by the end
There's a tyrant king with a reptile heart
And he's started a wave of crime now
From his ship high above he abducted my love
For the fourteenth or fifteenth time now
Shouldn't Ash's Snivy have had the blue background and not the red one, since compared to Ash's and Trip, Trip is more the "evil" one of the two? Because, since in these situations, blue has always signified good and red signifies evil. Or maybe I'm just thinking too much into this and that's not what the writers were gong for...
Claimed by me!
