So with a good portion of the world watching, I wonder how fast Ash's Counter Shield technique will spread. He already used it against Cynthia, and now Leon looks to be using it with Inteleon.

Dande with Libero-Aceburn and an Inteleon seemingly using Countershield? That's actually pretty based.

We need more hidden ability Pokemon, Go's Aceburn and Inteleon don't get a huge amount of formal battling so we get to see these species in a more battle-specific setting and I'm sure Dande having the Galar Big3 is pointing at something pertaining to Go who is away dealing with Project Mew with three Galar kids. I think this will remind Satoshi of Go hence the intial struggling. Here I thought Gorillander was just his secondary ace. Will the writers potentially show off Kyodaimax Inteleon and Aceburn here with Lizardon as the third for a triple gimmick fight against Satoshi's own three gimmicks?

On another note, I keep forgetting how newer starters are designed more as characters than a species so technically that means Dande's Intelon and Aceburn should act just like Go's, so obviously going for a power-of-friendship thing. Or Satoshi defeats them through knowledge of hanging around Go's the whole series. Or maybe Satopika-Z is useless cause Aceburn turns Ground-type or just resisting T-Bolt. Heck maybe Torrent in the title is talking about Inteleon's ability/prowess as a Water-type. I apparently missed all the Dande-Mugendaina doomposting, tg

I always felt Dragapalt should be Leon's secondary ace. Well actually, it should have been his main ace if it weren't for Game Freak's love affair with Charizard LOL. But either way, as the pseudo that role felt right for me but you def are right that Rillaboom has gotten more crazy feats than it so far in the M8 so I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a tank in this fight. I honestly hope all his Pokemon are shown by formidable enough that they could be considered a secondary ace even though I know one will likely be like Cynthia's Gastradon which got bodied twice. I have a feeling Mr. Rime will be defeated without getting any wins for some reason

You are awesome!
Most realistic scenario for cameos with voice acting:

-Serena,Dawn and Chloe since they have appeared in JN already.
-Brock is easy too since he voices Wobbufet.
-Paul and Gladion have appeared too and Sawyer is easy due being Pikachu's VA

The rest could be silent cameos who knows?

Preview confirmed that Koharu and Hikari will appear in person at the stadium, so the cameo does not apply to them.

So why are starter pokemon considered bland, boring and uninteresting by so many people? What makes other pokemon more interesting or qualified for this battle other than subjective opinions about likes/dislikes? I had no idea Leon’s team will cause this kind of vitriol. I’m just genuinely curious, don’t want to come off as rude or anything.
Isn’t it being an opinion more than enough of a reason? I like the Galar starters a lot. I just want to see some variety. I wouldn’t call them boring. I’m ok with them being here. Just would’ve preferred something else instead of 2 Pokémon we’ve seen for a good chunk of this series.

Yes, but I was curious about the reasoning behind those statements. We have opinions based on something, whatever it may be.

Most of it just seems to be a missed opportunity to see something new with a few people just not liking the Galar Starters.
