    I kinda liked this episode with the reunion of all the characters, the new pokemon, and such. Thought the battles went rather well and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

    I don't care for much of the BW episodes but I do love these tournament eps, particularly with all the different rivalries. Also really enjoyed the battles with little twists such as Seismitoad being slowed down by it's injury and Simisage stepping on Scraggy's skin to land it's attack. Only thing that annoyed me was Trip's "boonies" jibe, though it was hilarious seeing Bianca's angry reaction to his arrogance.

    Man do I love these tournament arcs, and seeing all the rivals in one place is the best part besides the battling.

    Edmund actually does sound like James, but from the earlier seasons with a tad of "gloom" to it to fit this guy's character. Nice touch.

    Poor Stephan, no one gets his name right, at all. I chuckled a bit when he said he's starting to forget how his name is meant to be pronounced. xD

    That one guy's Simisage sounded very odd, and it began to feel very irritating. I hope Cilan doesn't evolve Pansage to sound like that.

    None of the 8 characters bored me in this episode; they have a purpose and it's well delivered as always. Again it's why I enjoy these tournament arcs.

    Burgundy intrigues me at the ending, saying she's gotten a lot stronger. Hope she lives up to that statement in the next episode.

    Iris hasn't competed in a long time? She won the last tournament, and it wasn't that long ago. <_<

    Scraggy is the worst choice Ash could make for a tournament full of fighting pokemon.

    Didn't notice this last time, but why does each of the main cast have an annoying rival?

    Holy crap. A year supply of vitamins? That's insanely valuable. Huge improvement over the last tournament. 0_0

    New move for Scraggy!

    And.... it's going to take 20 episodes before he masters it. This is really tired. -_-

    Nice episode! Scraggy's battle was pretty cool, but how in the world could a baby Pokemon take so many Low Sweeps? XD The rain guy was creepy :p

    Edmund's voice was really creepy... I really like how Seed Bomb was animated, it looks even cooler than its game animation.

    The Throh/Throw pun I wish would've been better though...

    I agree with you. Tournaments are always my favorites! Leagues, Grand Festivals, World Tournament (I can't wait for that), and these tournaments are my favorite episodes, it seems. Burgundy and Georgia are awesome. I loved Georgia's remark to Burgundy. I don't remember what exactly she said, but it was hilarious.
  10. The "u will nag at my nageki" pun wasn't all that good either, so I don't see the problem.

    wdf is wrong with you the user didn't spoil anything.

    I don't like tournaments all that much, because most of the time, they're done badly. This is one of the badly written tournaments. But I can say I enjoyed this episode. Simisage sounds like a trumpet underwater, ha.

    This was one of the better episodes of Rival Destinies IMO, I was impressed that they managed to make the battles somewhat interesting, and maintain a decent amount of tension despite the lack of battles against reoccurring characters.

    Very very nice episode!
    I give it 9,5/10, I like this arc although Trip lost against Bianca!
    Hopefully Trip wins and more developments soon in World Tournament XD

    Are the writers really not able to work on any sort of story advancement or feature Team Plasma, do we really need another mini tournament filler just to show off uninteresting rival battles & their obsessions with each other. We already know Stephan is going to win this tournament as evidence by the last episode. We could be getting a BW2 anime instead we get this pointless filler we all the stupid tropes that go along with Pokemon.

  19. As if waiting more episodes is going to prove your point. Battra turned out to be right. -_-

    Agreed, thought the name was dumb as well.

    I don't think that's what Bisharp meant.

    I liked the Clubsplosion arc. It was great to see all the rivals together after most of them basically disappeared after the Club Battle. It sucked how the Clubsplosion was only a one Pokemon only tournament. It would have been good to see how much all the rivals Pokemon grew. It was disappointing how in this tournament only Bianca and Stephan really moved up from their positions in the last tournament.
