How did he lose again?
So the match is happening towards the end of the episode? Whew

how cute~
Here's hoping the Cynthia/Gible backstory is more than just "Oh, I got an egg, Gible hatched out of it, and we were happy together. Wow, that's just like Ash and his Riolu! We are so similar!"

Back in DP, Cynthia revealed to Ash that she used to be like Paul, focused only on getting stronger when she was younger, causing her to hurt Pokémon with her reckless behavior. This backstory with young Cynthia would be far more interesting to explore.

Sorry not sorry for my smugness
Still can’t believe they actually named the episode “sweep”. Lmao never saw such a disrespect to a character in any anime so far. Only thing missing is that the commentator says that Leon wombo combo’d Diantha into submission

Here we go. Even though this is only a taster of what's to come, the anime has been so dry and garbage for a month that I'm quite hyped
 

Panky..

Arthur Morgan is the GOAT character ever.

They did exactly what you said in the first sentence + some Aura power of friendship flavor sprinkled in. Not a hint of the little setup in DP.

Oh yes, not to mention a "lost at the League" segment for some random CotD being shoehorned in. What a disappointment.

Humans are tools
So instead of leon it is some random girl who is now lost in the league.

Anyways i think they have setup a lucario vs garchomp finale with both hatching from egg.

Can Pikachu kill servants?
So a girl we don't care about is stealing all the time from a battle of two champions at the semi final of the biggest tournament.
It’s so when they return Diantha is pretty much sweeped by Leon. Hence the episode title
