Saw the pictures.
I still love Stephan's name gag, I know plenty don't like it...but it seems plenty don't like any running gags...I love them all though.
I enjoyed the battles:
Stephan vs Bianca-Bianca loses but she did alright, it's nice that she got this far at less.
Ash vs Masaomi-I have no issues seeing a one-sided fight, hype for Masaomi.
Stephan vs Masaomi-Not really surprised that Stephan won...not because Masaomi was being a jerk or that his wish was to win Donamite but because of the name gag...I just felt the writers were planning something for it and were going to do it no matter what, the gags triumph over all. Also, Masaomi didn't seem like much of a jerk once he lost, I guess his cockiness was the real problem, now with a lose he'll be a better person...doubt we'll see him again but I wouldn't mind if he does appear again, especially if we get to see a nicer side to him.
Interactions I loved as well. Everyone seems pretty close now for the most part, aside from the rivalry between Iris and Georgia and Cilan and Burgundy but even they aren't trying to cut each others throats out or anything, I feel they'll all be friends in the end, now the only question is, will Trip ever be a friend as well, I hope so.
Overall, I enjoyed the episode and I loved the tournament.
...I don't think you know what a personality is...
