Satoshi and Go have entered a battle tournament in the Houen region. Will the two of them be able to achieve a lot there?!

-----

Satoshi and Go have registered for the "Battle Frontier Glass Noisemaker Cup", a battle tournament held in the Houen region. This is Go's first ever Pokémon battle, and his opponent is Hoji from Fuen Town. Hoji sends out a Graena, so Go challenges him with his Strike, who has a type advantage here. Meanwhile, Satoshi is rapidly advancing through the tournament, winning battle after battle. And believe it or not, when he makes it to the match that truly matters, he sends out...?!

Screenplay 赤尾でこ (Deko Akao)
Storyboard 齋藤徳明 (Noriaki Saito)
Episode Director 村田尚樹 (Naoki Murata)
Animation Director 加藤祐子 (Yuko Kato)

I'm confuse on why the twitter account didn't post this Episode long with the rest since it doesn't spoil anything in its title
 
Series-spanning thing or one-off event?

Guess it’s something like the little festival where Satoshi fought the Tower Tycoon in Sinnoh. Also the Battle Frontier is in Kanto in the anime not Hoenn..unless it’s the games Johto/Platinum frontier?

a tournament already? shouldn't they have some time to develop their Pokemon especially go's scorbunny it doesn't have much experience as pikachu and what you think the prize might be?

I love the Battle Frontier reference and all but... it's in Kanto and Sinnoh in the anime. Not Johto and Hoenn

Also disappointed that this wasn't a capture episode..... please don't go past episode 10 without giving Ash something

Ash without catching a single Pokémon in the first 10 episodes, heck, 5 episodes in, never happened before, I'm getting a bit of anxiety about this series now, like throw him a Rokidee in episode 4 or 5 at least...
Exactly, I don't care if it takes awhile for his second capture to happen but for pete sakes. I don't want him to be stuck with only Pikachu for a long time, it's why the AU movies suck.

Just give him something

This was the 7th episode?

Did they just not tell us because how boring it was?

I don't mean the episode in of itself but the title and summary being boring because at least the other episodes dealt with something far more specific that could be illustrated while this not the case.

Well, they have started by putting Battle Frontier in Hoenn.

So, either they moved the Frontier to its game location, or this is an anime-original version.

If it's a tournament, I guess we're doing the Dome?

Episode 4 doesn't have a illustration either (in fact, the twitter doesn't announce the title either). However, it is the episode where Scorbunny appear.

Maybe the tournament in Episode 7 will be important for this season.
