    Them defeating him weren't anything that special really. :/ Bel called out to Emboar and he defeated Conkeldurr and Dwebble used Shell Smash and Slash thus defeating Gurdurr. The appearances are low, I can say that.

    It was special when it first happened. Nobody saw it coming. Nobody ever defeats Ash's rivals. It seems so blah now because almost nobody cares about Ash and Trip's rivalry and the bad writing that has kept happening this series. Seems like everyone keeps their standards low

    Trip is the sign of bad writing. Builds up an entire saga by spam beating Ash, but loses in a 1v1 in League's Round 1 using his overused Serperior. I'm sick of that serpent already, Trip's Serperior left me a bad impression of the species in general.

    Anyways, unpopular opinons
    - Iris should've gotten Snivy while Oshawott should've gone to Cilan.
    Not sure if this is unpopular, but I liked how AG spread out the starters to the trio.

    Yea, it was special because that happened. But, it depends on the person watching. I was happy to see them defeat him, but as you said, it was special at first. Now we have main rivals losing in the preliminary rounds and others losing to a League rival. So, anything can happen now. :/

    At least he's not Paul Other Pokemon should have been used in the other tournaments, and Trip should have gotten better than 1v1.

    That I find this guy's review the most hilariously agreeable thing I've ever seen by a Pokefan myself:

    Opinions Regarding the Pokémon:
    1. Anime: OS > AG > BW > DP > XY
    2. Movies: OS = AG > DP = BW = XY
    3. English Dub: 4Kids Entertainment/TAJ Productions (EP001-EP276; AG001-AG020) = 4Kids Entertainment (AG021-AG145) = TPCi/SDI Media (The Origin)/Very Good > TPCi/DuArt Film & Video (BW)/Poor > PUSA/TPCi/TAJ Productions (AG146-AG192)/Very Poor > TPCi/DuArt Film & Video (XY) = PUSA/TPCi/TAJ Productions/DuArt Film & Video (DP)/Atrocious
    4. Games: XY > BW1 > BW2 > RSE > GSC > Y > HGSS > DP > RBG

    Let's be honest with ourselves here... Ash was completely dumbed down in all of those matches. The best battle they had that had a tad bit of what Johto/AG/DP could have easily pulled off (with a win) was the 3 on 3 tie. I'm sorry, but a beginning trainer like Trip should not be giving a high caliber trainer like Ash problems. No back story of meeting a champion can change that.

    Yeah that worked so well for Brock's Mudkip haha. Just a little sarcasm cuz I didn't think all the Hoenn starter Pokemon were treated equally so it prolly wouldn't have worked if the same thing happened to the Unova starter Pokemon.

    Except the Unova team is heavily undeveloped and the sharing of screentime is completely bs. Ugh. It just annoys me so much. Rotation is a great idea, but the writers completely sucks at handling it. I'd rather have a smaller, developed team over a bigger but with uneven screentime team. Ash's team would've worked much better in my opinion if he had Pignite. Even in DP, having two starters left Torterra the more shafted of the two. Right now, Oshawott and Snivy aren't seeing any development, since for the former's fighting without scalchop training went to waste, while for the latter, she had the same movepool since the beginning of the series. Real development.

    Tbh, Cilan and Iris's team could use the starters too. It would make them much more promote-able like Dawn and her screen-hogging penguin XD. I'm surprised how they shoved all three starters to Ash even after how popular Dawn was with Japan partially thanks to Piplup.

    As for Paul vs Trip issue, if DP had Trip and BW had Paul, it wouldn't be as bad. But it went the other way round. Tbh Trip is just too similar to Paul, and the latter is a clear cut above the former in strength. Trip just fails to hit the bar that Paul set, which I admit is pretty high, but IMO Trip isn't close to the bar either. Aside from his Serperior, his team is kind of messed up. Conkelderp, Jellicent and a Vanillish and Lampent that somehow disappeared into oblivion.

    Exactly. People hate on Paul's attitude and then use that to say he was weak, total crap lol.

    Exactly. Again Rotation should of been ALL pokemon besides Pikachu get rotated. Instead we got 1 rotation spot for the majority of the region -_-...

    Like?? No new moves, no evo's....

    Other then her rivalry with Emonga and her mother like qualities, what does she have??

    Screen time =/= Development. You should remember that.

    Im assuming your talking about Snivy?? If so then I dis-agree cuz we've seen her appear a lot and even tho she usually hangs out by herself she still has more personality and more things going for her than Brocks Marshtomp. What did Marshtomp seriously do that puts him above Snivy? Im curious to see what others have to say

    Yea, she may have appeared and all, but she never developed. :/ Robert basically said everything I was going to say.

    It's funny how a lot of people were so eager to say that Snivy >>>>>> Oshawott in terms of development and now suddenly she's not even developed enough to stand on par with Brock's Marshtomp? Strange how Snivy's relevance in the show is suddenly called into question; it's even stranger that it's being questioned by comparing her to one of Brock's Pokemon, when almost everyone previously agreed that his Pokemon didn't develop much - if at all.

    the fandom is fickle, what can you do.

    One moment people will get behind a pokemon, praise it and hope it grows into something awsome, but when it doesn't happen they turn on it, and bash it.

    though there are exceptions like Pignite who get bashed no matter what...

    Does this constitute an unpopular opinion...even so I'll admit I'm guilty of this, but for good reason. I mean of coarse you want something to succeed, if nothing happens at all then it's basically wasting potential.

    Actually, he is better. He has something called a personality.

    All Paul has going for him is power, he's just a boring, generic "rival", and always will be. Trip is less powerful, but more interesting.

    Personality doesn't win you battles unless your Ash... (Ash's loses to Trip were generic)

    How does Trip have any personality? He's just cocky and arrogant, but isn't even THAT strong. Tbh Bianca has a far more interesting personality, and so does Stephan and Kotetsu. He's somewhere along the lines of Virgil.

    He doesn't even interact much with Ash like Paul. At least Paul is cocky for a good reason, he's actually a threat.
