Pokémon: BW Rival Destinies


Just as they were about to leave Nimbasa City, Ash and co. meet with Trip again, who has five badges over Ash's four. Later they meet the Unova Champion Alder, the man who inspired Trip to be a Pokémon trainer when he was a kid, only to see that now many years later, he's a goofy guy. He challenges Ash to a battle and Ash gladly accepts. Who will win this battle? No one, because he accidentally fell asleep during the battle. And what in the world is going on in Alder's head anyway since a wild Gigalith goes out on an all out rampage?




  • Ash: What's with the turn around?

(As Bouffalant kept on going to Alder with Head Charge)

  • Alder: Come on. Are you mad? Please! Stop being such a CHILD! (after being hit by Head Charge)


  • Though Ash has befriended old Champions like Johto's Lance, Hoenn's Steven Stone/Wallace and Sinnoh's Cynthia, this is the first time Ash battled a champ other than his rival Trip's wishes too.
  • Professor Oak's Live Caster: Zebstrika
  • Who's That Pokémon?: Bouffalant (Japan), Gigalith (U.S.)
