    I was cheering for Shooti/Trip cuz he had enough wit to take down Ash's stupidity.

    I was really happy with this episode. Cool to see Iris be scared of Ice types, it makes sence. Cool to see Timburr and Vanillite. Really glad with the outcome of the battle hopefully in the future Ash will win some and not just at the league. I hope it will be in the next battle.

    10/10

    Finally got to watch this episode that ended the "apocalyptic streak of fillers"

    - It starts with Cilan making crappy Brock-style soup for the kids while Iris teachs Ash how to be wild like her
    - IT´S SHOCKING TIME!!! and Cilan grounds the children for ruin the food ... and they don´t give a crap about it and just throw him an apple to calm him down
    - Iris challenges Ash to a race to the Oran tree and runs into Trip who was about to catch a Palpitoad with a Vanillite, wow, Palpitoad is sure ugly ... and I´ve never been a fan of the ice cream line, they just look ... kinda stupid, Pokémon based on food ... ugh.
    - So, Iris gets curly with Ice-type Pokémon, cool foreshadow for BW036.
    - Trip looks interested in Iris and her hometown and takes pictures of her and Axew, too bad she didn´t wanted to battle him, I hope they battle eventually.
    - Servine got his revenge against Snivy.
    - And now is time to watch Trip´s background story, Alder acting like a WWE Superstar telling to Trip "I will be Champion until you challenge me to a match and it will be epic" by now, maybe Alder doesn´t even remembers that little kid, heh, it´s kinda cute how Trip´s motivation is a promise that a celebrity made to a little boy to look good in front of his audience.
    - Yay, another victory under Oshawott´s belt, and a very good one I must say, it was my impression or Timburr´s lumber changed sizes during the battle?
    - So, Trip is not all that cocky and actually wants to help Ash to get better, that´s a nice turn of events, in Trip´s last episode, he looked like he didn´t even considered Ash as a rival, now he even remembers Ash´s tendency to use types that have disadvantage.
    - Tepig vs. Vanillite, it was nice to see two attacks collide and not exploding.
    - And it ended in a draw, cool, it´s nice to see an equally strong rival.
    - Weird, looks like Cilan uses cooking as a therapy, after doing that buffet he looks kinda relaxed, even if he said in the begining after the soup was ruined that "there wasn´t food left" but he even had the time to bake a cake, the time ... and the stuff ... where he could have an oven?

    Still an awesome episode, BW Rulz!!

    I'm glad (in general) that ice beam in the anime has turned from an attack that always freezes to more of a bolt that sometimes freezes. I just wanted to state that.

    Cilan scenes are funny.

    Overall it was a fine episode with minor plot bits. Great non-filler.
    This signature is just a plot device to keep me moving.

    I liked this episode because it promises A LOT of change in Pokemon's formula:

    1) Levels now exist.

    2) Champion foreshadowing is stronger than ever conveying the idea that either Ash or Trip will win the League.

    3) Trip said that winning the Pokemon League was only a "step" before entering the Champions League.

    4) Trip said that Ash winning a League would not heavily contribute to his goal of becoming a Pokemon Master.

    I love how Iris and Axew are afraid of Vanillite because it's an Ice type. It's sort of a throwback to Misty and how she was afraid of Bug-types

    Yay, Trip! ./sarcasm :P
    It was funny how Dento snapped at the beginning of the ep xD. Interesting to see how Iris hates the cold. I liked how Iris was "supporting" Ash and helped manage to persuade Trip into battling him. It's nice to see that Iris has Ash's back . Anyways, the battle was alright. Mijumaru missin' them aqua jets like normal... But it was epic how it fainted the Timburr. Sad to see Snivy faint so quickly. Pokabu was cute and strong :3.

    Somewhat off topic, but Trip/Shootie is really.... ugly. o_o Ash is way cuter -I mean stronger .

    I liked the episode. I was glad Snivy lost, because the old "I'll just use attract on you and then slap you around so you'll lose" thing was getting old and it would be boring to see Snivy beat Servine.
    Yay, Oshawott beat Timburr!
    I like it that they gave Trip a Vanillite. I always liked the Vanillite line. I can't wait to see how it battles as a Vanilluxe if it's strong enough to beat a fire type while it's still a Vanillite.

    Ugh, this setup pretty much means Shooti at some point must win a tournament.

    I could see him draw against Ash in the Unova final, but I doubt that will happen, since Ash is not allowed to win a league.


    While I admit the battles were rushed, I do not agree that the end results were wrong.

    Snivy being oneshotted annoyed me, but we knew since earlier that Servine's Cut is absurdly strong(beating out Volt Tackle). And really, once it parried Attract, Snivy was doomed to defeat- the earlier Snivy vs Servine battle was only won because of Attract, Servine was easily stronger even back then. But at least it wasn't just an instant loss, they exchanged a few blows before Cut.

    I kind of like the parallel between Oshawott and Servine- they are both "swordsmon"(Servine's Cut is a typical Iai blow). And from what we're seeing so far, they are the likely main powerhouses to be of the two characters.

    Dokkora losing so easy to Oshawott rubbed me the wrong way, as it's a bulky mon. Oh well.

    Ice Beam causing Water vapor... Logic. Delicious logic.

    I knew Snivy wouldn't win again. Oshawott is getting better. Vanillite has good defense.... lucky....
    Ash's team right now


    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    If you deny any sort of existence of Iris's hair, put this into your sig (started by 5ilVer)

    Aw man, I can't wait to see more Alder. He may be a calm, happy guy who knows the ways of the world, but I can't help but think that he looks like a guido. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's so amusing to think that him, Marshal and the others (except Grimsley, he's a total hipster wearing shoes without socks) are all fist pumpers that spend their time DJing at the hawtest venues whilst avoiding Electrodes/Amoongusses.
    .....I'm looking into this too far.

    "Ash and Trip's Third Battle"? I wonder what this could be about...

    The beginning didn't quite grab me as much as the previous episode (all it did was feature a typical Cilan moment and show that Ash isn't Tarzan material), but once Ash ran into Trip I got interested. Trip has a Vanillite?! That's awesome, it looks like Trip is going to have a really cool team. And Palpitoad looks cute in that oblivious kind of way. Also Ash blocking the PokeBall was reasonably funny.

    I really hope that in one episode Ash doesn't have to beg Trip for a battle, and that Trip will ask Ash instead.

    And the battle begins! Trip leads with his Servine, and Ash counters with his...Snivy. It's disappointing, but predictable based on Ash's last battle with Servine. Still, I wish he used Tepig or Tranquill--Tepig hasn't really gotten any good screen time since Nacrene City, and Tranquill really needs some work. Ok--Snivy loses, Servine hardly takes any damage. Despite this, I'm still not sick of Snivy using Attract. I think it's a good gimmick.

    Trip's flashback was neat! I like the appearance of Alder's Bouffalant, and I like Alder's character.

    Timburr. Yeah, I was right, Trip is definitely going to have a neat team. Ash counters with Oshawott, and I'm eager to see how Oshawott's special training from BW028 will help him against Trip, in a battle that is actually important. Oshawott still hasn't mastered Aqua Jet...because he closes his eyes when he uses it. Typical Oshawott! Trip's Timburr seems really strong (it even knows DynamicPunch), and I like the way it works its piece of wood into the battle. Oshawott defeating Timburr was pretty sweet, maybe Timburr isn't all that strong.

    Yes! Ash sends out Tepig! I've missed that guy. And I'm also really glad Trip chose Vanillite, because I really wanted to see him battle with it. And wow, that didn't disappoint, it was quite a nice battle. Tepig really showed some strength--not many of Ash's other Pokemon could have charged right through a Blizzard. I do wish Tepig won but I'll settle for watching an impressive battle.

    Summary: Trip reveals he has a Vanillite and a Timburr; Ash challenges Trip and it ends in a draw (so maybe, just maybe, Ash is getting stronger?); Trip shows Ash why Oshawott's Aqua Jet never hits its targets; and Ash learns more about Alder and Trip. It was a very good episode.
    Also, I already know that Palpitoad shows up again, but I'm excited to see it in the next few episodes. So this episode is definitely a 10/10.

    "Ash and Trip's Third Battle"...

    Any craptastic puns? Awful wordplay? Stupid pop culture references? No? Seems like a fine title to me, then.

    I find it odd how many people actually care about the episode title........

    It's just a title, and I can think of worse titles than this one.
