    Default What Will Happen to Trip, Bianca and the Others in the Filler Arc?

    It's becoming really obvious that the League is quickly approaching rather then there being a 50 episode gap between the eighth gym and the League. After the League, whether or not Ash stays in Unova or goes somewhere else for the filler arc Trip, Kotetsu, Stephan and Bianca are going to seem really tacked on if they're included. If he stays in Unova for the filler arc continuing their rivalry will seem pointless because there won't be any League battle payoff at the end of the saga. The same gores for if he leaves for another region. If Ash loses to any of them where it counts (the League) people are going to feel jaded if he ends up beating them in an unofficial battle at the end of the filler arc or in some penny-ante tournament.

    Burgundy and Georgia may continue to follow Cilan and Iris for revenge, but I can't realistically see any of Ash's rivals being carried over to the filler saga. The same goes for Team Rocket too. They're not chasing after Ash and Pikachu any more so it's going to seem really convenient if they just happen to be going to the same region as Ash after this. It could be okay if Ash stays in Unova though.

    Yes, as likely as it seems, it's better to wait for confirmation.

    Also, Georgia doesn't want revenge upon Iris - she's not Burgundy.

    Well, it's a bit early. But It's kinda obvious that if there were to be a filler arc, Trip wouldn't be as active. Still could be there. Georgia-Burgandy I feel will be done before the league even starts. Still unknown if Stephan is collecting badges. But he could still show up once more at the league. Bianca, what much can the writers do with her lol?

    Depends if the filler arc is tournament based like I hope it is.

    If it is tournament based and they stay in Isshu I can see everyone sticking around if Satoshi goes to another region to take part in tournaments I can see Shooti/Belle/Kenyan going there also to take part, since they are battlers.

    We can actually have others characters f the tournaments happen after the league, like Shinji or that fat samurai from the Hoenn league(just examples), I still hope the filler arc takes place in Kanto and Satoshi takes Dent/Iris around Kanto like they did with him in Isshu.

    So yeah pretty impossible to predict till we get to know if there is going to be a filler arc and how it will work.

    I won't feel bothered if he beats the guy that beat him in the league in a diferent tournament, why would I?

    Imagine he gets beaten by Kotetsu and Kotetsu loses in the finals, Satoshi later figths Kotetsu again and beats him and the main pokemon that caused Satosh trouble or wtv, I would actually like that, unlike all the other random league rivals that he never beat.

    We were told that the league would be in three months about two months ago. Assuming that doesn't include the two-week break in August, that means the league would start sometime in early October.

    I doubt it would start right after the TR arc. There will be more episodes in between.

    Stephen will be driven insane by nobody remembering his name, developing a complex where he believes he doesn't exist so he ends up doing reckless things and gets jailed. Trip's over-inflated ego will cause him to take his loss to Ash harshly and he'll end up becoming a shut-in recluse, repeating the mantra of 'basic, basic, basic'. Meanwhile Bianca will run into someone, who will fall down and do the stereotypical "oh no I'm injured" routine and she'll get sued and her father won't let her adventure again. Kotetsu will return to his rightful spot as the ruler of all (Arceus) oh and Georgia....

    She will be having hot lesbian sex with Iris.

    Happy Days.

    That isn't real life time, the anime has whatever freedom it wants to drag BW2 out.

    Sure, Ash should take the spare time and go to Hoenn to cheer dawn on in the grand festival participate in a Steven cup, a tournament that gives an all purpose badge that can be used in any region.

    How about you wait until a filler arc is actually announced before you start predicting what is going to happen in it.

    I would have thought these threads would have stopped popping up ages ago.

    Yeah we need more information first. I'd imagine the rivals would stay since they help the main trio with their stories afterall. Georgia is not done with Iris and neither is Burgundy with Cilan.

    I could see Bianca becoming professor Juniper's assistant after the league, so we would get to see her whenever the professor shows up. Stephan seems very disposable, so I could see them not returning.

    True, but every other time they've given us a "X months until the league", it's been pretty much accurate. I don't see why they'd change that now.

    Still, it might be best to put off the "filler arc" speculating until we actually have an inkling of what they're going to do with that time.

    We also have the Drayden episodes to get to but those could take place after the League.

    Thanks I tend to write 'badends' in these threads but I decided to give it a 'sexy' ending this time.

    The reason why I said he was ruler of all is because in another topic I said when someone asked who Kotetsu was.

    "Some people call him just a trainer but others know him as god.

    Arceus incarnate."

    So yeah that's my reasoning.

    We're talking about the gap between the likely end of the league (sometime in December or January) and the release of the next main series games (probably September). We've heard nothing official about what will happen during that time, so we're just guessing it'll be a "filler arc" based on what they did with the Orange Islands and Battle Frontier. On the other hand, there's still stuff in the Unova games that hasn't been adapted to the anime yet, so we might just get a continuation of the current arc instead.
