    Well they seem to love rushing things... I'm surprised they're even showing 128 participants

    Why exactly can't Ash get this little guy?

    I hope that this episode isn't wasted with Ash and Kotetsu looking for the League. There should be some good interactions between Ash and his rivals and the rivals with each other considering how in all the other tournaments it seemed like they were trying to limit how much Ash and his rivals interacted.

    You mean you hope it ISN'T wasted with Ash and Kotetsu looking for the League right? I hope that's what you mean.

    Sadly, I think they dropped that idea. Even as much as I want to see Snivy's old trainer, they might not do it.

    It was never actually fully confirmed that she had an old trainer.

    Anyway, I zoomed in and I still can't see how that is definitely a Watchog. To me, it looks like 44-46% looks like it, but it's still too blurry to fully identify for me.

    I like how they had Kotetsu last on the screen. I showed that he must have registered at the last minute or forgot that he had to register at all.

    They really should have introduced these guys early, not the last second type. They could have all used a Don tournament arc here and there, not that it matters seeing as how Pokemon didn't do a thing with Ash and Trip's so called rivalry in those tournaments so.

    Are we sure that Trip is losing in the Top 128 and not in a higher level than that.

    Even if it's the case, it's just that he got a very strong opponent right off the bat. Tough luck.

    He's losing in the preliminary round so presumably that's top 128

    So there nothing unfair about Trip losing in first round.
    Just like Ash was best 2 trainer in Sinnoh League despite reaching only Top 4 because he's the only trainer who've beaten Drakrai.

    True

    Ending last doesn't make you the weakest competitor. Losing to a guy who loses the very next round, then the guy that did win loses the next round and so on would make you the weakest . Ash could have ended up against Tobias in the first round and lost too, but he still would have basically been the nr2 trainer. Thats just the luck of the draw and ending up against someone stronger. I guess the Johto method was a bit fairer, giving everyone 3 battles for points first, so that 1 bad match-up wasn't an instant loss and did a better job of seperating the weak and strong.

    Basically Trip losing here doesn't mean he is weak, he was just unlucky to face Ash so fast, but that does make it realistic, since its a lottery in terms of who fights who, so they can end up against each other in any round, not just the later ones like previous league's.

    I think it's a great idea to make lose Trip at this point.
    What other league, tell me, decided to eliminate the rival in first round ? They always going far with Ash include. I'm sure that Trip'll have his revenge one day, like after the Unova league or in one of the last episode of Unova journey. Because I WANT TO SEE HIS FINAL TEAM.

    So, let me just make a quick post or something..

    I go celebrate my birthday during the weekend, and I come back and this thread has 200+ pages.. Shoot..

    Eitherway.. 128 participants is way more then I expected, but with a preliminary round being present I kinda naturally gravitated towards the idea of there being more participants then in Sinnoh.

    Top 128: Preliminaries: Vs. Trip
    Top 64: Round 1
    Top 32: Round 2
    Top 16: Round 3
    Top 8: Round 4
    Top 4: Round 5
    Top 2: Finals/Round 6

    I definitely think Ash is going to the top four again. Six battles is what he needs at this point to give all of his pokemon a decent battle. I can see him battling all of his rivals.. And Katherine. She's the only one on the board that we have seen before that wasn't present in a Don Tournament, so that's why I gravitate to her a bit more then to the Don Tournament participants, unless it's the guy with the Reuniclus again, or the JC-guy who had a Golett (the one defeated by Heatmor-boy) if it has evolved by now.

    I kinda want:
    Prelims: Vs. Trip
    Round 1: Vs. Stephan
    Round 2: Vs. Katharine
    Round 3: Vs. Virgil
    Round 4: Vs. Belle
    Round 5: Vs. Kotetsu

    Lastly, I'm gonna bring up a small point I made after the airing of BW57: If Katharine was going to show up at the league, she would be best as the preliminary opponent: Gothitelle vs. Scraggy, or Snivy. We now know that Ash will be facing Trip in this battle, but they could've easily went with Katharine as well. I'm kinda scared though, with these many rounds, somehow I'm beginning to think that Ash might not get top 4, and will end up getting top 8 again.
    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.. -.-

    You want a bigger idiot then Ash... to beat Ash? That's preposterous and really makes Trip look weaker then anyone else on this show
