    I didn't mind Cameron's dub voice much in his debut episodes, but I really found him grating here. Stephan was alright, but the dialogue between the rest of the rivals was kind of awkward, and I think you definitely missed the chemistry with Burgundy and Georgia.

    On the plus side, I thought Jamie McGonnigal was really solid here, and made Trip's transition transition from cocky to amicable believable.

    But Jason doesn't voice Trip. Jamie does.

    So I wasn't the only one! Yes, it did feel like an adult was struggling to voice him right.

    Cameron being a freaking idiot, Trip actually getting better...sam old same old....the best part would probably be the fact that they actually kept the background music form the Japanese episode!!

    I know everyone likes Cilan too much, but this is ridiculous.

    I just can't get over how stupid Cameron is shouldn't have even been able to join the league, plus would have liked it if Ash vs Trip wasn't right off the bat like this.

    That brings up a good question. Would the other 63 trainers participate just fine with the lucky trainer not getting to fight in the preliminary?

    In fact, I wonder what happens to anybody else who didn't make it to the league. They probably need to wait a long time, or they need to redo their challenge all over again...

    I was really surprised they didn't pipe their own music during the really quiet background scenes..

    Wow Cameron's is indeed irritating in this episode.

    I don't believe there was a scene of such in the original version as well. It may have come from the next episode, which will be next week.

    Actually there's 128 trainers. But yeah, that doesn't really make any sense. I thought the 'preliminary rounds' of previous tournaments were to get to an even number, but here there's a clean 128 anyway.

    It bugs me in general that they have one-on-one battles in these tournaments. You spend months trying to collect eight badges in order to get to the league, you send in a fire type and they send in a water type, too bad, you're gone.

    Fine episode. Really, though, Cameron was stupid. Thinking that just showing up automatically gets you registered. What a fail. Cameron shouldn't have entered after the closure. If it closes, it closes. There shouldn't be any exceptions. It's not fair to other trainers who couldn't register.

    It's nice to see the gang back together, though.

    Honestly... how stupid can one be?
    I really don't like Cameron as a character. If you don't make it to registration and screw up its entirely your fault. Just being a scatterbrain is one thing, being outright dumb is a complete other. There are definitely other ways to develop a humorous character.

    Oh man, this episode was awesome! Finally here, at the Unova League!

    I like the episode, it has a good start and a nice setup. I got to say, I really like the league's design, actually. Its also good to see all of Ash's rivals again; Trip, Bianca, Stephan, Cameron and Virgil! Haha, they finally say Stephan's name right! Funny, Cameron forgot to register, while camping out for 3 days. :p

    Huh? Ash is already up against Trip, in a 1 on 1 preliminary round! Ooh, I like seeing Trip acting really nice towards Ash. Oh well, at least the battle looks good so far but too bad Pikachu isn't able to land any attacks on Serperior... It looks like a great, yet scary battle! Its also nice to see the rivals battle's too! :O

    Oh wow, I really enjoyed this episode! An awesome, yet suspenseful way to start off the Unova League! I'm so pumped up for the next episode!

    So why is it people hate Cam? due to him being an idiot? I mean Bianca is an idiot in the anime but people don't hate her.

    Perhaps because Bianca isn't as scatterbrained, but she's more ditsy. Not sure if those are any different. At least she has the knowledge of knowing about the whole League process.


    But i think Cameron's hate mostly comes from the breaks he's getting. Which makes it like an unfair thing towards others.

    I don't hate his stupidity, unless it directly affects another character. I'm afraid we'll see something like this for how Cameron is a loose cannon.

    I could say, but that would be a massive spoiler to talk to here.

    Bottom line: Cameron isn't very liked as a rival. I miss the likes of Conway.

    Because of something he does later that really rustles everybody's jimmies.

    I like him and his team. He has proven himself to be a pretty funny character and a decent trainer.
