So essentially...nothing happens. Georgia still hates Iris, Bianca was made a complete fool of, and Ash lost yet another battle. The whole tournament was - for want of a better word - redundant. The final battle, which should have been a lot more interesting, was simply a way for the writers to showcase Throh and Sawk: Unova's most popular pair of counterpart Pokemon. There wasn't anything satisfying about that battle, nor any of the others. One would hope that the writers would move on to more original ways of showcasing the rivals and recurring characters, but as always, they follow the same tired formula.
