It might just be me. but It kind of defeats the purpose of being called the Trip Badge if only 1 or 2 of the gym leaders are at the gym at any given time.

....I don't like Pansear or its evolution. Chili is also my least favorite of the Striaton City gym leaders.
I find it odd that the writers gave development to Chili just because he lost some off-screen battles. There are more relevant characters that could have used it instead (Trip, Bianca and Burgundy especially). Chili is old news.
The only relevant thing this episode does IMO is make Oshawott look bad.

Well Chili has always been my favourite Striaton sibling, so I was happy to see him show up in Driftveil. Chili was so cute when he was eating donuts and I almost expected his Pansear to evolve. :]

I was pleased to see Dent's brother Pod show up in Hodomoe City, although it's too bad that Corn didn't leave the Sanyou Gym to complete the trio. Pod battling Satoshi to make his Baoppu stronger was all well and good until Mijumaru lost again. What was up with Mijumaru losing to Fire-types constantly?

Lame episode again. The only somewhat good thing about it was Pansage's new move Rock Tomb. But he could have easily learned it in a less boring episode where Oshawott doesn't get beaten to a pulp.

I'm amazed Chili became a Gym Leader in the first place with that kind of attitude, but it was so much fun to watch him improve with Cilan's advice. For once, I don't even mind that Ash lost.

I don't get it. Chili is a gym leader. It's his job to test trainers, not go all out and beat them, shouldn't he be happy when the challengers win? I agree his attitude seemed odd for a gym leader. I do think it was unnecessary to have Ash lose a battle to Chili, but it was due to Oshawott being hit with Solarbeam so it was acceptable.
