I can't Kominicate.
Is it disturbing Iris and Korrina share way too many similarities.
Young little girl (with claws on a chalkboard English voice) who thinks is the **** because of her prestigious status but has the misfortune of winning when her ace doesn't obey her orders while totally losing when they're allegedly in their top form while listening to his trainer after the girl finally(?) got her **** together. Said young girl also comes back from nowhere only to help Ash - who has the Pokemon the girl is acing - rise into a brand new tier at the PWC by losing to him.
At times, I think they're rehashing the plot masqueraded under the return of a beloved(?) character to hide the real intention. Iris only needs to lose offscreen to Lance to complete the ritual requirement in full...but still.
Wait, didn't Korrina also go through a winning streak that long too.She was considered a child prodigy and got a Gym offer based off two battles as well as a 99 winning streak.
...Oh my god, this is RICH.
