I'm not surprised this is directly leading into the start of the Masters 8 tournament. I still have a feeling Ash will find out Cynthia is who he'll face first.

A more accurate translation is "Training Battle of Flames! Satoshi VS Shinji!!".

The special preview shows Dragonite battling Garchomp which looks to be this episode, would love it if Ash prepared for the battle against Cynthia, only for her not to use Garchomp

So by process of elimination, this scene must be from this episode.

Finally! I've been waiting for this episode. Its interesting that Ash went to Paul for training. I wonder how their dynamic will change. I do hope Ash wins. I mean a loss to Paul will just make him look bad and like he's not ready for the Masters 8.

Paul should definitely win here. Ash really has nothing to gain from beating him again other than some redundant fanservice. The winning streak he's currently on could run the risk of making him overconfident, so a loss now would be sobering and help mentally prepare him for what will be the greatest challenge he's ever faced. Ash's previous victory over Paul was wonderful and cathartic, however it was always his losses to Paul that acted as his greatest catalyst for growth. Paul should serve that same purpose now, imparting Ash with some important lesson or piece of advice to carry with him through upcoming fight.

Also Ash and Paul are nearly equals, there's no shame in Ash losing to him this time. That's the back-and-forth nature of a healthy rivalry where both trainers are constantly improving and learning from one another.

Nope he definitely shouldn't lose. He just beat a champion and an elite 4 then losses?

They already did the ash overconfident arc, completely unecessary to repeat it again

Could just be a scenario where Ash uses what he learned in this training battle against Paul's Garchomp against Cynthia's Garchomp assuming he battles her in the tournament

I am not very enthusiastic about this one.

Fearing that it may ruin the conclussion DP gave to Satoshi and Shinji.

I don't think the "Flames" is necessarily literal
