So here we are. It’s the start of the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup! Here we go.
So rival reintroductions aside, let’s get to the fun, shall we?
We start off with an 10-minute special exhibition match between Cynthia and Caitlin to kick off the tournament. Cynthia uses Garchomp while Caitlin uses Gothitelle. Gothitelle starts off with a Psywave and Psychic to attack Garchomp. Once Garchomp gets back up, it uses Dragon Rush to attack and finishes with a collision of attacks with Draco Meteor/Thunderbolt and Brick Breaks before time runs out.
Trip (Serperior) VS Burgundy (Darmanitan)
Serperior uses Galre to paralyze Darmanitan finishes with SolarBeam. Trip wins.
Well, these battles were pretty lame. Not even the named characters get a battle that last a minute. And Burgundy’s too pathetic to win against anyone nowadays. OK, moving on…
Georgia (Beartic) VS Iris (Dragonite)
Beartic starts off with a Hidden Power. Iris commands Dragonite to dodge the attack, but instead it just stands its ground and brush off the attack. It does the same to Beartic’s Focus Blast. Dragonite won’t listen to Iris and just sits there, even as Bearctic freezes it with an Ice Beam. Although it manages to break out and withstand even a Blizzard attack long enough to deliver a ThunderPunch to Beartic, knocking it out.
And that concludes Round 1. Pokémon Best Wishes! Season 2 will be taking the next two weeks off, and then the Quarterfinals.
