Good episode. I'm glad the battles didn't look all that rushed and the writers manage to find some time to work the characters' dynamics. Georgia and Burgundy had some nice moments and I did like how the writers seemed to make them look some sort of dynamic duo. I'll look forward more interations between those two in the future!
Another good point is that Bianca started to calm down that disturbing crazyness for muscles. Seems like Scraggy's headbutt from the previous episode put some sense in her head haha
But the best was the beggining with Bianca beating Trip. I know it may look illogical but I find the closure very fitting to Bianca's character. Not to mention, it's nice seeing that Trip isn't all that unbeatable/know-it-all as his acts suggest.
As for the bad points, well, Pansage's loss was... odd. Not that bad, but I'm a bit dissapointed of seeing it being without doing more. It couldn't even push a good battle!
Iris shouldn't worry, she was up against this tournament's equivalent Takuto(Darkrai/Latios-trainer).
But I guess that leaves cooler moves like Boiling Water/Wild Bolt for Ash's (hopefully) eventual Enbuoh.

A really great episode. I liked all of the battles, and I liked the many Burgundy and Georgia scenes.
My only complaint is that the title match was once again the shortest and had such an abrupt ending.
Was Langley bothered by Iris not using a dragon type again? It seemed like it at the moment when Iris was walking towards the field with Excadrill.
Georgia still doesn't know that Iris only has one dragon. Iris needs another one badly, especially if the writers aren't going to evolve Axew.
The announcer gave each of the participates a description, I'm interested in knowing what he said.
And I believe Satoshi found the description that Dent was given cool. Is that right?

My ideal battle ever!
*watches Dento vs Kenyanuuuu*
Dento...are you bruised? ;-; THAT WAS VIOLENT. My inner N comes out in these Don Tourneys fighting is terrible and not because Dento got pummeled. Poor Yanappu. Kenyan should have went a tad easier.
Sounds like in his intro they said something about Dento being a Grass-type Gym Leader.
