    I wonder if we'll see the torch before the battle. I want to see the Flame of Victory. ^^

    Well, I don't know. BW is already quite messed up, but we all know that. Unfortunately, we have to accept what the writers feed us.

    Confused by my other post? That's strange.

    This is the first time BW went downhill. I thought it was really good until now. Some elements of BW were brilliant (TR for example)

    I mean Ash constantly losing to Trip makes Ash look bad because Trip is seen as weak in most of the tournaments he enters.

    Thing is Trip battled other people with a different guy, not really enough to prove to me Ash looks bad, because Ash is battling the other pokemon who won Trip the previous tournament, not the one that made him lose.

    You have a good point there. Ash didn't lose to Conkeldurr for example which would have made him look really bad since Conkeldurr constantly lost in the Don Battle Tournaments. So yeah, I see where you are coming from.

    That's because I think it suits the League perfectly, a place where you aim to the victory. But a blue Flame of Truth, to see who is the true Champion, is welcome in my book.

    Oh, you mean like how Virgil will aim to victory and how he will be the true champion? XD

    I do find it ridiculous that they're making out Serperior to be the fastest Grass type starter when Sceptile in the game beats it out by 7 in the speed category (Serperior's base speed is 113 while Sceptile's is 120) Plus it's weird that something without legs is that insanely fast. Hell, Serperior is the Ninjask of Unova apparently (even though that honor should really go to Accelgor)

    Um... I kinda agree about the tie, but it seems that the writers don't really want to show Ash beating a rival before the League (mainly to hype him, so we have the "satisfaction" to see him out later). And let's face it... when the writers cared about the "Pokemon with the advantaged type should win against the Pokemon with disadvantaged type", excluding the Excadrill vs Pikachu match? XD
    I didn't think you were, but a good majority I feel want that to happen, as if it were a sin for Ash to face a CoTD.

    I don't feel satisfied with this though... sure Ash is taking out Trip's most "hyped" Pokemon, but I don't know why he couldn't do it earlier, especially when people he had already beaten once before were knocking Trip around like he was a toothpick. I think I gotta agree with Cyber on Ash winning the league, because as far as we know, all of Ash's rivals are clearly newcomers. Let's face it, Pikachu is never gonna be allowed to beat a Ground/Steel type Pokemon until the day he learns Brick Break (which likely will be never)

    Why exactly can't Ash get this little guy?

    Yeah, I have to agree. But remember that in all cases he used Timburr and evos (he even lost against Oshawott, mind you. Not that Oshawott is weak, but still...) and for some reason they treated him as a punching bag. Maybe the writers decided to "sacrifice" a Pokemon so that his starter would appear stronger later?

    Leave Oshawott alone.

    If Ash is suppose to be a veteran and thus the whole reason he's allowed to beat Trip in Round 1... then he sure as hell can beat all his rivals with that logic as they are all rookies to our knowledge (only Virgil has yet to show us if he's participated in a few leagues of his own)

    I'm not attacking Oshawott, only pointing out a fact. No need to take that so personally. I think that Oshawott has potential and he'll show that at the League.

    Every series lol. With Johto they experimented with getting rid of the Kanto gang.

    Hoenn they experimented with just the core six pokemon.

    Sinnoh they experimented with Trollbias and a second Pikachu...

    They all experiment.

    Tobias was not an experiment. He was a last second creation to beat Ash in the league.

    And it's not just the anime, Generation V as a whole has been nothing but twists:

    Video Games:
    * First time since Gen I where a Pokédex contained only pokémon from that generation
    * First time the third game to a series was a direct sequel instead of a remake
    * First time where we get the pokémart inside the pokémon center
    * All the stat, EV. & IV changes
    * First time we get two rivals in a game
    * First time where a gym has three different gym leaders
    * First time poison doesn't affect your pokémon outside of battle
    * First time pokémon sprites moved all the time in battle
    *I'd go on but I'm worried this would make my post too long


    Trading Card Games:
    * Introduction to Dragon-Type cards

    Online:
    * First time we can go online and catch pokémon with different abilities
    * First time we get special internet events
