The Junior Cup Gets Underway! Dragonite VS Beartic!!
It's time for the Junior Cup of the World Tournament and, after the exhibition match between Cynthia & Elite Four member Caitlin, the battle begins. With the old rivals of Burgundy and Georgia re-appearing, the battles are going to be tough. First up is Iris battling against Georgia, with Iris choosing to use the Dragonite she recently captured. However, Dragonite doesn't listen to Iris' orders, choosing to do what it wants instead. Will Iris manage to win the battle or will Georgia live up to her Dragon Buster nickname?
Just under a minute until the arc starts. We've already had some advertizing clips pass on tv, eagerly awaiting the episode now.
They're already at the tournament!!!
- They're looking at the dome.
- Ash is moderately excited!
- Meloetta's there as well.
- Meloetta gets bumped into by two CotD's.
- Ash rubs his hat by the confusion that somebody would do that!
- No sign of Trip, or any of the other rivals!
- Time for a gathering I'd say.

- Trip really wants to battle Alder badly..
- Trip walks away and Alder smirks.

- Garchomp vs. Gothitelle! More epic music!
- All the participants are exhited.
- Gothitelle uses a Psywave which confuses Garchomp

This is a horrible out come for the tournament.

- Heatmor beats Golett with Flamethrower.
- Cilan's Pansage beats Galvantula with Solar Beam.
- Cinccinno beats Zebstrika with a charging move, you didn't even clearly get to see Cinccino. But a nice throwback to Bianca vs. Stephan in the Don Battle I'd suppose.
- Ash' Leavanny beats Karrablast with an Energy Ball: That's literally all we see of it. Odd, as the scan said Ash would face pokemon he hadn't seen before..
- Sawsbuck is defeated by a Reuniclus' electric attack.
- Dawn's Piplup defeats a Stoutland with Drill Peck!?

- Dragonite barely listens, but breaks the ice, and starts charging at Beartic.

- Dragonite: I'm Thunderpunching you silly!!! You're going down!!!
- Iris wins and is exhited, Cilan is less exhited about, he knows.
- Here comes Georgia: She points the finger at Iris about that she didn't control it yet.
- Dragonite is completely ignoring Iris at this moment.
Omg, can't believe that this was the entire first round...
- Ash, Dawn, Iris, Cilan and Trip advances, and the only battle of note of the second round is Dawn vs. Iris.
- Hahahahaha! Trip glares at Alder over the shoulder! Priceless!
- End of the episode, no Team Rocket!

Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
"If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."
Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:
I don't have any confirmation on their designs or what not, but these just came to me, and I want to get credit for if they turn out true. Dated 1:54am on 6-6-16:
- Rowlet: Arrowl
- Litten: Burstiger
- Popplio: Bubblaid
The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..
Oh God! Alder and Cynthia at the start reminded me of Jiraiya and Tsunade no joke! Loved Ash's not amused face with the rivals. Was expecting Bianca to push him into the water but looks like he is a non show. I'm 85 % sure Christna Vee voices Catilin.
This episode sucked. None of the type matchups made any sense. How could a Darmanitan get knocked out by a Serperior's Solarbeam in one hit!? And you'd think Iris's Dragonite could at least be afraid of ice. Of all moves, it had to use Thunder Punch to knock out Beartic after getting frozen solid. Moreover, I didn't really like Caitlin's voice, I always imagined her voice to be a little more flamboyant and emotional. Although I did liked the part where Alder was hitting on Cynthia.
