    Maamane versus Matsurika sounds really interesting to me, more so than Kojirou versus Musashi frankly since the battle between the two Rocket-dan members is sure to be filled with drama and angst, which I'm not particularly excited about.

    So if Sophocles ends up defeating Mina that means he could face one of the TR duo. If he wins that means he'll make the top four. In that case he made it farther than any of the classmates aside from Ash

    Not necessarily as they seem to be randomizing the match ups for each round , so it's possible that if Sophocles wins against Mina he could wind up battling Guzma in the Top 8. As if the match ups weren't randomize then it wouldn't make sense for Ash and Hau to face each other so soon as Ash's match is the first one while Hau's match is in the 3rd one, while Guzma's match is the 2nd one meaning that Ash would actually be facing Guzma in the Top 8 if the matches weren't randomize each round.

    Not gonna lie, I'd like to see James beat Jessie tbph. Jessie has topped a major tournament in the past (Top 4 in Sinnoh's Grand Festival), so I'd like to see James advance here.

    Well, I certainly wasn't expecting this. I'm rooting for James to make it all the way through now. I wonder if whichever one starts with the Z Ring will toss it to the other if the move doesn't finish the battle.

    Meltan vs Mareanie was from a montage of previous battles. That was in the episode the gang went to Malie City

    Well that's what's going to happen when you strict the main battles to Top 16 rather than Top 32 or Top 64. It's not really a surprise that Team Rocket is stronger than some random kid with a Yungoos (for example).

    What about Plumeria? Is she part of the 16 or does she get taken out in the BR?

    Well there is two match ups in the top 16 that we still don't know about yet, so I think it's safe to say that Gladion will be in the Top 16, so really if Plumeria makes it that would mean that Kiawe, Lillie, or Hiroki aren't going to make it, which of those 3 given that Hiroki is going to be commanding a Pyukumuku at some point and that it wouldn't make sense for him to never use his Mudbray, he will probably make it in to the top 16.

    Also given there was a quiz of who is going to pass the preliminary round, and the options were Ash, Mallow, Sophocles, and Lillie if those being the options wind up meaning that one of them aren't going to make it to the top 16 then by process of elimination, since we already know that it's confirmed that Ash, Mallow, and Sophocles made it into the Top 16 that would mean that it confirms that Lillie is going to not make it pass the Battle Royal part.

    So if Plumeria does make it she is probably going to be taking the spot people that people think will go to Lillie. Of course it should go without saying that I would much rather Plumeria take Hiroki's spot instead of Lillie's spot.

    Mallow vs Lana
    Ilima vs Guzma
    Ash vs Faba
    Hau vs Oak
    Mina vs Sophocles
    Jessie vs James
    Lillie vs Gladion
    Plumeria/Acerola vs Kiawe

    That means either Jessie, James, Mina or Sophocles will reach the semifinals against Gladion? The weakest quarter of the bracket, by far...

    This is a cool concept but.... not exactly fair. They've only got one z-ring, and let me guess who'll use it. Hint: Not James
    I hope James ends up winning, but the writers always seem to favor Jessie more for some reason so I'm not going to hold out too much. James is the more popular of the two... don't see why she always get the special treatment, BW is the only one she didn't but they barely did anything with either there. I'd love it if James somehow won because I've always wanted to see the guy get a high position in an official competition, Jessie's done that twice(Sinnoh Grand Festival, and the Master Class thing). Let James have a turn, damn it! -.-
    Perfect time for a Mareanie evolution too, seeing how unbalanced the battle will likely be. At least this is more fair than say, Meltan evolving to beat up Silvally or Torracat evolving to kick Charizard's ass. It's actually an unbalanced battle and thus, mid-battle evolution surprise gets a free pass!

    Guzma battling the Team Rocket winner would be fine, given they actually have history. It's better than somebody else facing Team Rocket anyways

    I hope Mareanie evolves into a Toxapex during this episode. I can't see any other way for her being able to win against Mimikyu.

    Has Toxapex been dex'd by Rotom? If I recall the episode with the shiny one was a TR focused episode, without Ash's party.

    If I am remembering right, no it hasn't, so far Toxapex hasn't been dex'd by Rotom.

    Jessie, being the leader of the group as well as her Contest/Performance activities, gets the most attention. So I'm going to root for James. Guy needs something. Plus he has more motivation since he wants to battle the Masked Royal.

    Who is Jessie going to use, anyway? Unless she can convince Mimikyu to hold down its Pikachu bloodlust for five minutes (I guess she can tell it to fight seriously so it can fight Pikachu later), she's stuck with Wobbuffet.

    Actually not really as the whole reason Team Rocket Trio made that hot spring and a back up plan was to keep those 2 distracted. Plus let's be honest it's extremely unlikely that they could convince Bewear to participate in the league or to let Stufful participate in the league, at most they might be able to convince Bewear to just watch but nothing beyond that.
