Seems natural to have Ash's main Pokemon go up against the champion in a 1v1.Ash used Screenhogachu once again instead of one of his reserves
Not really, it was used to show how disappointed, annoyed and ashamed Trip was of his idol.the entire "Trip meeting Alder" plot was wasted, and it was just plain boring.
That was the whole point of his personality and character, to seem incredibly different to some serious strong trainer.Also, Alder was a complete jackhole, acting like a jerk to Trip, and FALLING ASLEEP DURING A BATTLE. I feel sorry that Afrobull has to put up with such a fool.
Or maybe, people just can't accept the anime for what it is, instead of complaining about every god damn thing.I'm with Dman on this one, the anime is really going downhill.
