And so it begins. Got to prepare for these up coming episodes, almost passed out from the sheer awesomeness from this episode alone.
Team Rocket starts off the episode...times like this I hate when Pokemon doesn't get sub instantly like Naruto, I have no idea what was being said but the way it was all portrayed, something is going to happen(I get the feeling the writers are going to show the Team Rocket vs Team Plasma episodes, Team Rocket since last episode started wearing their coats again, and this episode made them seem threatening, regardless, something is going to happen and I can't wait).
Ash, Iris, and Cilan are here...where's Luke, don't tell me they ditched him...how rude. Oh wait he's there, I guess carrying a video camera and a Zoura adds to a lot of pounds, he can probably lift a Groudon with one finger he's just that strong.
Bianca comes running into Ash...I guess no one every taught her how to stop running, oh well it gives us a nice running gag.
Waiting for Bianca and Luke interaction...waiting...damn opening if you're not going to change any time soon get out of the way...waiting...oh look Luke is filming himself wonder what he's saying-FINALLY!!! Bianca pops up and has an interaction with Luke and Zorua. Looks like Zorua will provide a running gag of changing into people and causing trouble, I like this. Bianca trying to catch Zorua was fun to watch.
Time to sign up, oh look it's Don George...no idea what he's saying. Well that sign up sheet looks interesting, looks like only three Pokemon are aloud in this thing(Note the three Pokeballs). I'll assume the top boxes at the top is far your first and last name. I sure hope Ash just told Pikachu he's not using it, I have no problems with it but I want to see other Pokemon for a change.
Oh look a foot...I wonder who that is. Oh it's Burgundy, and here I thought it was Ash's long lost sister, then again...you never know :P. Writers flash-backing a lot in this episode, got to make sure people remember this characters, I remember them fine though. Burgundy says some stuff that I have no idea what was said. What the...where did that Zebstrika come from, oh it's Kenyan's, I would have never guessed(Despite the fact I saw him with it in the preview). Oh more flashbacks.
Kenyan holds up his sign up sheet, and casually makes sure the camera doesn't catch anything more then his name(Well I think that's his name...looks like he misspelled his name or something, I see a smug or something, poor guy can't even spell his own name, probably because everyone calls him by the wrong name or something), if only Pikachu would move we'd see who he has signed up(And maybe his last name as well).
Oh look it's Langley(Damn Kenyan, he didn't interact with Luke or Bianca, maybe later), I'm guessing she hasn't bathed in a while or something, I mean why else would she be plugging her nose...oh she's insulting Iris, well that's not nice at less it adds to the rivalry. Zorua being Zorua, Langley isn't pleased though(I don't know why, I thought it was funny), not a Luke and Langley interaction but it's better then nothing. Langley and Iris just learned Lightening Eye, they cancel each other out. Cilan, Ash, and Kenyan look disturbed, yet Burgundy looks like she's excited to see this(Only a matter of time before she and Langley fuse together and defeat Iris and Cilan and then take over the world).
Ash notices Trip. Trip's taking pictures. Ash obviously trying to get Trip's attention, wants to be in one of Trips pictures so Trip will always remember him...Trip doesn't seem interest in Ash though. Ash makes a weird face(Just wait till the end of the league, then Trip will love you Ash, just like Gary and Paul do, not that it matters...you never call them, learn to love one person Ash).
Don George and some guy introduce the tournament. You get super wings if you win, looks like they are more for show over actual use of them, they look nice so it's not that bad. They announce the match ups. Bunch of interactions between characters.
Langley vs Joltik kid-Iris and Langley go at it again...Joltik kid looks confused or whatever. Beartic vs Joltik, Beartic tries to attack but misses since Joltik is so fast. Joltik gets on it's back and does Thunderbolt(Or some Electric attack), it's enough for Beartic to fall on it's back...wait what?! Um...Joltik is unable to battle. Poor thing lost because of it's own attack doing. I know Joltik is small but the size between these two is ridiculous...I need to see a Wailord and this Joltik side by side. Langley wins, hardly shocking.
Some guy vs Lance look-a-like-Some guy has the Patrat, I don't think Watchog guy will like this one bit. Lance's long lost brother wins, I'm not surprised, he was the more interesting looking between the two. I can't help but laugh at how he uses a Deerling, I wonder if he has a whole team of small cute Animals.
Handsome guy vs Some kid(Pretty sure they all have names but if they aren't ever going to show up again why bother)-So Handsome guy has the Tranquill...lol. Some kid has a Scolipede. Handsome guy wins, again I'm not surprised.
Burgundy vs Ash-Well gee, I wonder who'll win this. Burgundy looks like she just wants to battle Cilan or something, poor Ash. Burgundy uses Stoutland, and Ash uses Palpitoad. Bunch of stuff is said before the fight, I have no idea what, sounded like Cilan and Iris were telling Ash to use Pikachu or something, sure glad he didn't. Palpitoad looks cool. Ash wins.
Trip vs Cilan-Looks like the first round isn't finished with in the first episode. Episode ends with these two getting ready to battle. They look pleased to have the other as their opponent. I can understand why Trip feels this way, it is Cilan he's battling after all.
Kenyan vs Bianca-Oh look they interacted. *Checks it off the list*.
Luke vs Some guy with noticeable clothing-Luke is video tapping him, the other guy looks nervous.
Last match...Watchog guy vs Iris-Iris looking around to see where he is, she sees him...he winks at her...she's scarred for life and so is everyone else. Seriously, aside from wearing Watchog fur(He better run when PETA gets to him), he's winking at 10 year old girls, call the cops!!!
Loved the episode. I'm sure these Don Battle episode will be some of my favorite episodes. Too bad we have two breaks during these.
