    The Battle Royal Preliminaries have started. This is a survival match where 151 Pokémon and Trainers will fight, and the 16 winners will be able to continue to the knockout round. But with all these strong competitors present, will Satoshi and the others be able to secure a spot?

    The Curtain Rises for the Alola Pokémon League!!
    The first Pokémon league in the Alola region! A must see from the very first episode on!!

    The preliminaries is the greatest Battle Royal ever, with an incredible 151 participants!!

    The league begins with the preliminaries! It's a fierce fight where all the participating Pokémon and Trainers battle each other indiscriminately!!

    Who will battle who? An unpredictable melee!!

    *Only 16 can remain for the finals! And Satoshi and Pikachu are aiming for their first victory as well!
    *You have no idea when and from where your opponents will attack!
    *This is a continuous series of battles where you can't be unobservant for even a second!

    Don't miss the episodes airing June 30th and July 7th!

    Who will continue on to the knockout round?!

    Here's our picks for competitors to pay attention to! But how will things really go?!

    Satoshi's rival!
    The boss of the Skull Gang!
    Hala's grandson! Highly skilled!
    The favorite!
    And there's Satoshi's friends from the Pokémon School, too!

    Satoshi: We won't lose to anyone either!!

    I guess all of the classmates will probably pass through the preliminaries, so much for all the classmates getting knocked out in the first round

  5. Can we already decide who are the 16?

    Still is a small tournament lol. Anyone can enter with no standards, that's what makes it small, not the 'number of people'.

    16 trainers:

    Kukui (Masked Royal)

    That's 11 trainers. The remaining 5 will probably just be random trainers that will be knocked out in SM130, although 1 of them might be Jessie/James too. Hopefully we'll get to see some classmate vs classmate action.
  8. Almighty Zard

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    TR would be 12 if they entered, Ryuki could as well that's 13.

    We just need three more. Maybe the other Z-Crystal users, Hiroki, Kagetora and Pikala. Or Acerola if you want someone who's appeared more.

    Team Rocket would count as 2.

  11. Yeah. But that means it will be hard to see everyone win in a battle in this episode

    And yet another Gen one reference...

    And my suspicions of OHKOs just went up...

    *sigh* Just as many of us thought, this is less of a League more of a BW Battle Club (which themselves were like the World Martial Arts Tournament from Dragon Ball)
    The good news is that this confirms that Mallow, Sophocles and Lillie will get some wins for sure.

    Maybe Acerola and Mina so we can have all the Trial Captains? o_O
    Don't see why not. If Sophocles and Mallow can be in this, so can they.

    This is basically the Hidden Blood Mist incident except no one dies but they cry instead.

    My condolences go to the people unable to enter because it would break the numerical reference. Hey, Ash, why not school Furfrou Guy 2.0 for failing to enter because of their pathetic performance?

    Good point. They still need to show off the Fairy and Ghost Z moves
  15. Kiawe and Lana could proceed to next round as they are shown to be good battlers, Lillie and Mallow have mythicals, if they use them, they should proceed to next round. That leaves Sophocles as the most vulnerable one, but if he loses his very first battle, that would make his recent development pointless.

    But if all the companions proceed to next round, then that would make the case of 'not having full battles' more likely to happen!

    I thought about Misty and Brock entering but their voice actors aren’t on the cast list, right?

    Yep, everyone who said this would be the worst League ever is 100% correct.

    Hopefully Lana or Lillie get kicked out during this round

    All the main cast will make it to the second round hence the 16 finalists.
  19. Ignition

    Ignition Incineroar wins yet again (proud of my son)

    Ngl I think the premise is a neat idea. I wonder if there’s a limit on how many Pokèmon can be used.

    This sounds like it's going to be a fun Pokémon Leauge, trying something different is always good.

    But I won't judge it fully now (hence why I said "it sounds like") because it's best to wait and see it.
