You're surprised? It was obvious that Ash, and Dawn weren't going to battle. They're always treated as a team, rather than serious competitors. As I said several times earlier, it was going to come down to Ash, Trip, Iris/Dawn (with me leaning more towards Iris), Cilan/CoTD.So they bring back Dawn for a tournament...for no reason. Whatever.
Good thing we never had a Misty Vs. May battle then.Huh, looks like its the fate of all female companions to be beaten by their season successor.....
It was obvious why they gave Iris a Dragonite before the tournament anyway. Her current team without Dragonite, probably wouldn't have made it far. Hence her conveniently timed gift.Anyway this news is pretty bad IMO. I think Ash will beat Iris now and that's when the Krok evolves. Although its mind blowing Mamoswine couldn't do it.
Piplup, duh.Seems really odd and pointless to me, as if her cameo should have been about something else.
