LEGEND OF THUNDER GANG?!?!?!
They were actually both written by Atsuhiro Tomioka--in fact it seems likely from a recent interview that he's writing every episode in the Master Eight.(To whoever wrote that Leon vs. Alain disaster, I wanna say the following: THIS is what a battle between champions should look like and I hope you paid close attention!)
Or simply because Tomioka wasted too much time on that unnecessary battle vs. Hop. The built-up for the Masters Tournament should definitely have been done in an additonal episode. Today's episode proves what a difference it makes if you have the whole 20 minutes for such important battlesAlain may have went by so fast because he's against the top trainer, isn't a regional champ himself like the others, and likely has the smallest fanbase.
