    I noticed Trip went through more development in this episode then Ash has done in the entire BW series.

    Me too. I wished this was done in the first don thing with Ash instead of Iris and Ash and maybe not losing to Bianca would have made me feel better in the Clubplosion thingy.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Too bad that Ash had to lose to Trip, but I guess it was inevitable that Trip really wanted to battle Alden. I did like Piplup and Oshawott's reconciliation goodbye, that was cute. Georgia's "breaking the mold" comment about Burgundy made me LOL too.

    I liked how Trip and Serperior were in this episode. Alder's speech to him was good too. Honestly Trip's Alder story was better then Cheren's. Cameron was also good. I wish him and Trip were the center rivals for this season.

    I say that Trip's Devolvment was rushed and could have been done during the seven gym or something

    True but this season was known for barely trying with anyone. They rushed and when the league came they knew that they needed to make Trip look like a threat so they put together the Junior Cup and rushed through it.

    Really to me it was bull that they were doing this to Trip. He shouldn't have beaten all those fire type without making them don't puting up a fight. There showing a Pokemon that is powerful and then theres crappy writting. Trip is one of the most crappest written charaters in this show and he doesn't even fit in the series right. I have now noticed that Pokemon Best Wishes was supposes a fun series then a serious one and most of the other rival have more things that made them good. If Trip had a light personallity then a stupif story that was Cheren's then he would have been okay, but no.

    I understand your opinion. But the other rivals were as bad if not worse then Trip and I like all of them so I can judge them without using bias.

    Really Ash doesn't need devolvment in this series because he taking a back seat in this series and letting other charaters devolvop then him.

    The thing is that he has barely developed at all. It's been the same thing and he has only gotten more experience but that means nothing considering he never uses that experience.

    He knows the same things just the writers chose not to let him use it. Besides Gary and Trip respectively were better rookies then him.

    Really I can't see the different beteween Gary and Trip. Mostly because they were both horribly written in their own series. For Gary is boasting him up as this great trainer and over shadow of Ash, but we don't see him battle that much then seeing him losing twice in the series where he didn't beat anyone at all in the entire series. while Trip only beaten Ash three time and not see any of his other Pokemon win a single battle beside his starter.

    Despite their lack of screen time and lame writing they proved themselves more competent then Ash. Beside Ash's starters no one on his team ever wins.

    Alder and Trip's battle was short .... but awsome. I loved it when Alder took down Trip's Serperior with a One Hit KO.
    Later, Georgia said goodbye to Iris and Burgundy said goodbye to Cilan. ( Sigh, I didn't know that I'm gonna miss them so much after this episode. )
    After saying goodbye to their rivals, the group was about to leave the place, but a boy named Cameron came and shook their hands. Cameron told them that he wants to participate in Junior Cup tournament .... but after knowing that the Junior Cup is over, he ran off.
    Back in Cynthia's villa, Dawn says she have to leave for Participating in another Wallence Cup in Johto, But then Ash asks her for a Battle.
    The battle was going great, but sadly Cynthia stopped the battle at a tie.
    Later everybody said goodbye to Dawn and Piplup, but before they could leave .... Oshawott comes out of it's Pokeball and hugs Piplup. After Dawn left, Cameron came and said he was late for the plane to Johto, so he couldn't participate in Pokemon League. Cameron's reaction was hilariouse after Ash told him that he needs 8 badges to enter the Pokemon League. Overall this was nice episode, I enjoyed watching it.

    This was one of the better BW episodes in my opinion, but I suppose that I mostly feel that way because the Junior World Tournament thing finally concluded here. I personally didn't enjoy Alder and Trip's battle merely because I knew that Trip would lose; I mean he was fighting a Champion so it would've been impossible to see him win. At least he was humble even after the loss. I didn't much like meeting Cameron after the tournament since he irked me the moment I saw his personality, but Ash and Dawn's battle made up for that. I just loved how they battled each other right before Dawn's departure. It was bittersweet and Quilava did better than expected. Oshawott's farewell with Piplup was so redundant though; I wish they hadn't made up like that. I thought they were better off as rivals.
