Alder has always been the type of trainer who presents himself as a goofy and eccentric individual, but is very reflective and philosophical beneath the surface. We know that in the games that Alder has been travelling around Unova to cope with losing his first pokemon in battle. I hope that the writer of this episode doesn't treat Alder as simply a comic relief character, because he has a lot more to offer to both Ash and Trip than to just prove that not all Champion trainers have to be serious all of the time.

He is awesome but nothing like Takeshi if everyone that hits on someone is like Takeshi, well Oshawott is like Takeshi.

Mijumaru is a Pokemon, Adeku is flirting with Nurse Joi a person Takeshi always would. Besides that he reminded me of Adeku a lot even before flirting.

I honestly can't stop laughing every time I see this in the preview
tumblr_lsn5ymibvK1qg9x1ao1_500.gif
Hahaha. Adeku, ILU already xD
I'm wondering what the hell he's doing in that scene? Is he trying to encourage Bouffalant? This would be strange because it's not that Boufallant doesn't want to battle, it's quite the opposite: Alder doesn't want to.

The preview also shows Officer Jenny scolding Alder. Considering that Jenny is voiced by Cynthia's VA Emily Jenness, this is a nice metaphor for Cynthia being superior to Alder because she's allowed to scold him :p

I'd say it's opposite. Going by his expression, it seems to be more of a "Do your best!" gesture of encouragement, though Bouffalant doesn't seem too happy that his trainer isn't being more focused.

So this preview shows Gigalith battling Bouffalant...That's interesting, since the preview showed Alder taking matters into his own hands so to speak. Could Bouffalant possibly lose to Gigalith because he' tired from his battle with Pikachu, leaving his trainer to take care of it?

I so hope this will be the case! Imagine how embarrassing it would be for Alder! :p A champion's Pokemon that is exhausted after ONE battle against a trainer who's not really that strong compared to Elite Four standards.

Uh. that's kind of a reach, there, pal.

with the Gigalith thing, maybe he just doesn't want it to faint Bouffalant? Maybe he sees that Bouffalant is running out of steam and goes lol nope and throws it because he doesn't want to lose another Pokemon again :< i dunno, that's my brain overthinking maybe.

I think the Bouffalant charging scene and the Gigalith charging scene are from different scenes. Why would Bouffalant go and battle Gigalith and then Alder just throws Gigaltih, that's even weirder than Alder being able to throw a Gigalith.

But they have nothing in common besides that...

- Gigalith charges.
- Trip pushes Ash.
- Ash pushes Trip.
- They keep pushing/nudging each other because they want to battle Alder I assume.
- Pikachu uses Thunderbolt.

That maybe the best interaction we may see from them.

I totally hate myself for missing this.

Interesting. If both of them battle Alder, does this mean he could use something else besides Bouffalant?

Or he could sweep them both with Bouffalant.

This could be a chance to somehow redeem Trip and his lackluster rivalry with Ash.

To be more specific, Ash and Trip were actually pushing the other away so that they could be the first one to challenge Alder to a battle.

It's definitely not Trip's pokemon. Trip was just as surprised as Ash and his friends when he saw Alder attempting to battle a Gigalith by himself. Trip was also on the same side of the screen as Ash and his friends when this happened so he is definitely not challenging Alder to a battle here.

I wonder what happens that makes, Ash, Cilan, Iris, Pikachu, Axew and Trip worried. I guess it could be Alder saying that he's not doing his best or Gigalith appearing.
