I'm just gonna go on a limb and say Cynthia's Garchomp's stats are all maxed out; it's completely buff.
Also, it's only a guess, but... I hope they're letting these new few episodes to pass, up to Dawn's departure, that they'll make a new opening; to hype up the league. It only seems appropriate, and I don't think we'll enjoy having Rival Destinies being the tittle under the league arc.

Cynthia having an ice cream dilemma was hilarious. Also seeing Iris acting shy around Cynthia seemed weird.
Yay! Dawn appears at the end, I missed her voice.
I honestly had the biggest fangasm when i saw piplup, but i had an even bigger fangasm when i heard his dub voice!!! OMG!! it's sooo adorable!!
Loved the episode as a whole, although i found it a bit cheap how axew knocked garchomp down :/

Really good episode, I enjoyed it a lot. So from what I can tell we're currently heading to the anime version of B2W2's Driftveil Tournament, since it seems to be PWT but with Ash facing friends and rivals rather than gym leaders. Then I guess TPCi's season 15 will conclude with Team Rocket's Meloetta mission. (Then with season 16 we should finally get acknowledgement that we're in BW Series 2. :P) Can't wait!
Very nice episode to start season 2 of B & W, very nice to see Cynthia & Dawn return for the guest appearance. Loved the match between Cynthia & Iris, nice to see Axew learn a new move even if it was barely effective on Garchomp.

After a whole season and a half with no familiar characters from before Unova besides Ash, Pikachu, and Team Rocket, I was glad to finally see familiar older characters brought back to the show (now bring back Paul, please!!!). I liked seeing Cynthia and Dawn again for this arc, it was a treat. And I loved Oshawott and his crush on Meloetta, it was cute, especially once Piplup gets involved after this episode.

This episode was wonderful. I love that a main character got to battle Cynthia but I wish Ash got to face her instead of Iris. I was delighted to see Dawn at the end, her voice sounds different.

In this episode, Ash learned that the Unova League will be held after three months, so he decided to train his Pokémon untill the Unova League starts. Later they saw Cynthia, who was trying to pick a Ice-cream flavour.
It's so great to see the Sinnoh Champion again after a long time. Her BW outfit was cool, she looked great in it.
After Ash and the others met Cynthia....Iris started blushing furiously and tapped her fingers nervously(I guess Iris is a huge Cynthia fan). Cynthia told them about the World tournament Junior Cup, so Ash and his friends decided to enter the tournament.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket tries to catch the Meloetta that was following Ash for a while in the previous episodes, but she escapes and managed to get down to the road. Later Cynthia and the others encounters the ill Meloetta and Ash rembembers when he first saw her in "The Epic Defense Force!". The groups run into Meloetta. Iris and Cilan rush off to find an Oran Berry for Meloetta. On the other hand, Ash and Cynthia comes to a lake, then Cynthia brings out her Glaceon and freezes the lake so they can get some ice for Meloetta. Later Cynthia gets a call from someone and she goes to deal sort out the problem. Ash's Oshawott comes out of it's Pokéball and falls in love with Meloetta after seeing it. Ash went off to get more Ice for Meloetta, leaving Oshawott alone with her. Meanwhile, Iris and Cilan finds an Oran Berry. Iris sends out Emolga so she can get the Oran berry and deliver it to Meloetta. Emolga gets the Oran berry and flies towads the direction where Meloetta and Oshawott is....but as she reaches there, a sudden gust blows her off and she bumps into Oshawott, dropping the Oran Berry.
Meloetta picks up the berry and floats away, disappearing into the bushes. Oshawott and Emolga blames each other for Meloetta's disappearance and they starts....fighting? Wow Oshawott, when Iris caught Emolga, you were all over her.....and now you are fighting with her....wow. Meloetta stops their fighting by singing her song as Cynthia returns. After claming them down, Meloetta leaves and later Iris asks Cynthia to battle her, which she accepts. I thought The battle was OK, but Axew learning Giga Impact all of sudden and knocking Cynthia's Garchomp down was cheap! This is the same Garchomp that gave Paul's Pokémon trouble.....yet it got knocked down by just one Giga Impact from Axew? Whoa.....! Anyway, after the battle they board a plane to the Eastern Unova with Meloetta following them. In the plane, Cynthia told Ash that someone he knows, is waiting for him And the 'someone' turned out to be Dawn!
It's great to see Dawn again, I'm glad Dawn's voice is same as her voice in the DP series. Overall, this episode was great! I liked seeing Dawn and Cynthia again for this arc, it was a treat.

Holy freaking moly, I totally forgot Cynthia came back at this point in the show!
And so does Dawn! I forgot that too!
I like Cynthia batter than Dawn, so I was a bit more excited for Cynthia coming back than Dawn.
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
I actually liked how Cynthia returned, but Dawn's return was quite nice, too. And I liked this episode because of Meloetta's debut and how Oshawott and Piplup interacted with it.

Wow it was cool seeing Cynthia and I liked how she and Iris battled even tho it was unresolved. At least Axew learned Giga Impact and we got to learn about the World Tournament Junior Cup.
Cynthia's new clothing design was better than her black Sinnoh outfit and seeing her typical uber Garchomp again was great. 8/10
I loved that Dawn and Cynthia came back. I was shocked Axew learned Giga impact but i was even more surprised it never used it again.
