'''Trip''' (Japanese: シューティー Shooti) is a male character from the series, Pokémon: Black & White. He has a non-friendly rivalry with Ash, meaning they hate each other both on and off the battlefield. While traveling to take on the Unova League, Trip takes photographs of Pokémon that he encounters and is also known to be a Pokémon Photographer. Trip has been shown to care for his Pokémon, despite not being the most caring Trainer, but is quite obnoxious, much like [[Gary Oak]]. The main reason he has taken a dislike to [[Ash]] is because of his training style and the fact that he is from Kanto. He seems to dislike Ash more than Gary does but less than [[Paul]] does, as he often teases Ash about losing. However, before running into Alder, they are shown to have at least some respect for each other. Trip is bound to learn that becoming the champion does not depend on just becoming strong. His goal is to become the next Pokémon Champion of the Unova region.
+
'''Trip''' is a character appearing in the ''[[Pokémon: Best Wishes!|Best Wishes! series]]''.
   
Trip does not think much of the Kanto region- or anyone from there. He thinks of anyone from Kanto as one who knows nothing about Pokémon. He considers Ash to be someone from "the boonies" who should go back to the basics of Pokémon.
+
==Appearance==
  +
Trip has dirty blonde hair with ice blue eyes. He wears a violet undershirt, and an orange jacket over a dark-gray hooded sweater, and a black waist-belt. He also wears white pants with black and white trainers. Trip is often seeing with his camera, taking pictures of his journey.
   
==Biography==
+
==Personality==
Trip made his first appearance in [[BW001: In The Shadow of Zekrom!|In The Shadow of Zekrom!]] where he was a beginning trainer shown choosing his first Pokémon. Ash was friendly to him at first. He eventually chooses Snivy and wants to battle [[Ash's Pikachu ]]because of it not being able to be found in his region. Although because of [[Zekrom,]] Pikachu's power is weakened and is unable to use Electric type of moves causing it to be defeated. Trip taunts Ash, telling him to go back to the basics as he leaves to Accumula Town.
+
While traveling to take on the [[Unova League]], Trip takes photographs of Pokémon that he encounters and is also known as a Pokémon Photographer. Trip has been shown to care for his Pokémon, though not to the extent Ash does. He is quite obnoxious, much like [[Gary Oak]]. The main reason he took a dislike to Ash is because of his training style.
   
Trip later reappears in [[BW010: A Rival Battle for Club Champ!|A Rival Battle for Club Champ!]] where he was at the local Battle club and Ash challenges him to a 5-on-5 battle.Trip comes out victorious when his Tranquill easily defeats [[Ash's Oshawott|Oshawott]] and [[Ash's Emboar|Tepig]], Servine defeats [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]], and his Frillish beats [[Ash's Tranquil|Pidove]] and [[Ash's Snivy|Snivy]]. It was revealed that he used Servine to defeat [[Chili|Chili's Pansear]] at the Striaton Gym for his Trio Badge. He then later states that Pikachu and Snivy are improving well, but the rest of his team members are a joke.
+
He did not seem to hate Ash nearly as much as Paul and Gary, but still detested him. However, before running into Alder, they were shown to have at least some respect for each other. Trip is bound to learn that becoming the champion does not depend on just becoming strong. His goal was to become the next Pokémon Champion of the [[Unova]] region, but was defeated by Ash in the first round of the Unova League.
   
Trip shows up again in [[BW022: A Venipede Stampede!|A Venipede Stampede!]], where he is using his new Lampent in an attempt to get rid of a swarm of Venipede, teaming up with other Fire-Type trainers. After removing too many of them, Ash tries to stop Trip. Trip ignores Ash, but tells Lampent to hit the leader of the Venipede with Shadow Ball. Ash jumps in the way and gets injured, then says they should move them out of the way. Trip first refuses. He finally agrees, and they clear out the Venipede with their Tranquills. Trip later leaves, jokingly saying he'll battle Ash again once he's worthy.
+
Trip does not think very highly of the Kanto region or anyone from there. He thinks of anyone from Kanto as a redneck from "the boonies" who should go back to the basics of Pokémon.
   
He reappears in ''[[BW034: Ash and Trip's Third Battle!|Ash and Trip's Third Battle!]]'' where he attempts to catch what would become [[Ash's Palpitoad]], but Ash falls of a cliff, gets hit by Trip's Poké Ball and scares Palpitoad away. Trip is furious, but they decide to just battle, and Trip challenges him to a 3-on-3 battle using his Servine, Vanillite, and [[Timburr]]. Despite their tough battling styles, it resulted in a tie between the two adversaries. Trip walks away and Ash says bye to him, of course with no response.

[[File:BW034 14.jpg|thumb|Trip promising to battle Alder.]]
  +
While Trip was a kid, he watched the battle of Alder against a trainer. After Alder won the battle, he advised Trip to grow stronger and take on the League if he wanted to challenge Alder one day.<ref name="BW034">[[BW034: Ash and Trip's Third Battle!]]</ref>
   
He returns in ''[[BW041: Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!|Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!]] ''where he competes in the [[Don Battle]] tournament in Nimbasa Town where he was up against [[Cilan]] in the first round.
+
===Season 14: Black and White===
  +
[[File:BW001 10.jpg|thumb|left|Trip receives his Pokédex, starting his journey.]]
  +
Trip was a beginning trainer, who went to Nuvema Town to choose his first Pokémon. [[Ash]] was friendly to him at first, but Trip refused to be friends with someone from the "boonies". After some thinking, Trip chose Snivy as his starter Pokémon and was given five Poké Balls and a Pokédex as well. Later on, Trip came out and started taking pictures of his journey, including [[Ash's Pikachu]], because it was a rare thing to see in Unova. Trip wondered if it was strong and challenged Ash to a battle. Because of [[Zekrom]], Pikachu's power was weakened and it was unable to use Electric-type moves. Pikachu tried to attack with Iron Tail and Quick Attack, but was defeated by Snivy's Leaf Storm. Trip taunted Ash, telling him to go back to the basics as he left for [[Accumula Town]].<ref name="BW001">[[BW001: In the Shadow of Zekrom!]]</ref>
   
His battle begins with [[Cilan]] in ''[[BW042: Cilan Versus Trip, Ash Versus Georgia!|Cilan Versus Trip, Ash Versus Georgia!]]'' where his newly evolved Gurdurr is defeated by Cilan's Dwebble. He takes a picture of Cilan, saying it was to remember his anger frustration, proving he takes losses harder and dwells on them, as well as this possibly being his first loss ever. After healing his [[Gurdurr]], he leaves and moves on to the next city.
+
[[File:Shooti's Evil face.png|thumb|Trip chides Ash, seeing Ash will lose.]]
  +
As Ash came to the Battle Club, he was startled to see Trip enlisted in. Cilan remembered Trip actually battled Chili in the Striaton City's Gym and won the Trio Badge. Per request, Don George contacted Trip. Trip was displeased at Ash, since he reminded Ash Snivy won against Pikachu. However, Trip was slightly curious and came to the Battle Club, agreeing on a 6-on-6 battle. Ash admitted he only had 5 Pokémon, making Trip annoyed and refused the battle. Iris managed to taunt Trip, claiming he was a little kid, so Trip accepted a 5-on-5 battle. Trip sent Tranquill against Ash's Oshawott, who was immediately defeated by Tranquill's Aerial Ace (due to Tranquill's Super Luck ability). Ash sent Tepig to battle, who was also defeated, by Work Out and Aerial Ace combo. Tranquill attempted to defeat Pikachu with the same combo, but Pikachu grabbed Tranquill's leg, threw it away and defeated it with Volt Tackle. Trip sent Servine, who evolved from Snivy. Servine managed to hit Pikachu with Leaf Tornado and defeated him with Cut. Trip chided Ash, doubting he would win, but Ash sent Snivy, who got hit by Servine's attacks. Using Attract, Snivy infatuated Servine and managed to defeat it. For his next Pokémon, Trip sent Frillish, while Ash swapped Snivy for Pidove. Pidove tried to attack, but Frillish defended itself and defeated Pidove with Water Pulse. Ash sent Snivy back, who used Vine Whip, but due to Cursed Body, Snivy couldn't execute the move any more. Frillish dodged Attract and defeated Snivy with Water Pulse and Hex combination. Trip then stated that Pikachu and Snivy were improving well, but the rest of his team members were a worthless pathetic joke like their Trainer. Ash promised to become stronger and battle Trip again.<ref name="BW010">[[BW010: A Rival Battle for Club Champ!]]</ref>
   
Trip reappeared in ''[[BW054: Ash Versus The Champion!|Ash Versus The Champion]]'' where he watched the battle between his rival Ash and his role model [[Alder]], the Champion of the [[Unova League.]] He left when Alder refused to battle him.
+
Trip came to Castelia City and was using his [[Trip's Lampent|Lampent]] to get rid of a swarm of Venipede, teaming up with other Fire-Type trainers. After destroying a large amount of the Venipede, Ash tried to stop him. Trip ignored Ash and told Lampent to hit the leader of the Venipede with Shadow Ball. Ash jumped in the way and got injured, then said they should move them out of the way. Trip first refused. He finally agreed, and they cleared out the Venipede with their Tranquill. Trip jokingly said he'd battle Ash again once he was worthy, marking a minor sprout in their friendship. Trip left off, since he couldn't wait too much for the Castelia City's Gym to be opened.<ref name="BW022">[[BW022: A Venipede Stampede!]]</ref>
   
Trip reappeared in<span style="text-decoration: underline;"> </span>''[http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/BW072:_The_Clubsplosion_Begins! The Clubsplosion Begins! ]''where he bumped into Ash and co. when entering the [[Donamite]] with his [[Conkeldurr]]. His first round opponent was revealed to be[[ Bianca]], whom he didn't consider a threat.
+
[[File:BW034 8.jpg|thumb|left|Trip takes a photo of Iris' Axew.]]
  +
Trip was in the area and attempted to catch a Palpitoad, but Ash interfered and caused Trip, by accident, hit Ash with the Ball. Trip was furious, but noticing Iris and Axew, he took a picture of Axew, who was from the Village of Dragons. Trip, however, claimed Iris was disrespectful for her fear of ice-type Pokémon. Ash tried to challenge Trip to a battle, but Trip ignored him, wanting to challenge Iris. Iris, however, claimed she was not in a top-mood, since Trip would only challenge Axew as her only dragon-type Pokémon. Trip almost left, but was taunted by Iris (who called him a kid) to battle Ash. Trip decided a 3-on-3 battle and sent Servine against Ash's Snivy. This surprised Trip, claiming Servine was stronger than Snivy. This time, Servine managed to hit Snivy with Leaf Tornado, dodge her Attract attack and defeat her with Cut. As they sent their Pokémon, Trip admitted wants to become strong enough to defeat the Champion, Alder. Ash sent Oshawott against Trip's Timburr. Oshawott was intimidated, but Ash encouraged Oshawott to battle. Oshawott repeatedly used Aqua Jet, but Oshawott continuously missed. Trip took some photos and showed to Ash Oshawott's eyes are closed when he uses Aqua Jet. Timburr managed to hit Oshawott with Low Kick, but Oshawott retaliated with Water Gun and defeated Timburr with Razor Shell. To copy Ash's battling style, Trip sent Vanillish, a Pokémon with type disadvantage against Tepig. Tepig managed to hit Vanillish with Flame Charge, but got hit by Ice Beam. Vanillish used Blizzard against Tepig's Flame Charge, causing a double knockout and ending the match in a tie. Trip left, while Ash promised he will defeat Trip one day.<ref name="BW034">[[BW034: Ash and Trip's Third Battle!]]</ref>
   
He began his battle against Bianca and her [[Emboar]] in [[Search for the Clubultimate!]] but lost in the next episode despite putting up a strong fight.
+
[[File:BW042 10.jpg|thumb|Trip decides to leave the Tournament, after his loss.]]
  +
Trip came to the local Battle Club Tournament in Nimbasa Town and registered for participation, then left off. He later learned he would have to fight Cilan, the Gym Leader. After watching the battle of Georgia vs. Ash, he commented Ash was lucky enough to win the battle. He came to the battlefield and faced Cilan.<ref name="BW041">[[BW041: Reunion Battles in Nimbasa!]]</ref> Cilan sent Dwebble against Trip's Gurdurr. During the clash, Gurdurr managed to hit Dwebble with Rock Smash, leaving a crack in Dwebble's rock. Cilan's Dwebble avoided Dynamic Punch attack, then used Shell Smash and imprisoned Gurdurr with Rock Slide, causing it to be separated from the rail it carried. With X-Scissor, Dwebble defeated Gurdurr. Trip He took a picture of Cilan, saying it was to remember his anger and frustration. After healing his [[Gurdurr]], Trip decided to leave. Ash tried to persuade Trip to stay, who believed he wouldn't get stronger by just watching how others battle and went off.<ref name="BW042">[[BW042: Cilan Versus Trip, Ash Versus Georgia!]]</ref>
   
In ''[[BW092]]'', he participated in the [[Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup]] and faced [[Burgundy]] and her [[Burgundy's Darmanitan|Darmanitan]], where his Servine was revealed to have evolved into a [[Serperior]]. It frightened Darmanitan with Leer and then finished it off with [[SolarBeam]].
+
===Season 15: BW Rival Destinies===
  +
[[File:BW054 5.jpg|thumb|left|Trip expresses his desire to battle the Champion, Alder.]]
  +
Trip came to a small town, where he met the heroes (to his displeasure). Ash showed he got four badges, while Trip obtained five. Regardless, Trip admitted he came to find Alder, the Champion, and request for a battle. Trip told Alder was seen nearby; the group encountered Alder on Officer Jenny's motorcycle, since he flirted with her. Alder fell down, since Jenny refused his charms. Trip came to Alder, who recognized Trip as "Tristan". Trip and Ash challenged Alder to a battle, but Alder claimed he could only battle one at a time. Trip allowed Ash to go first, since Trip could study Alder's battle strategies. Trip watched the battle, surprised Alder did not do anything to counter Pikachu's moves against his Bouffalant. Trip was annoyed to see Alder was actually sleeping and yelled at Alder, who woke up. Alder confessed his loss and claimed he was too hungry to have a battle with Trip. Trip reminded Alder about telling Trip the importance of strength. Alder could not remember he told this to "Tristan", causing Trip even more annoyance and he left.<ref name="BW054">[[BW054: Ash Versus The Champion!]]</ref>
   
In [[BW093]], he defeated Marifuji with Serperior and advanced to the Semi-Finals, where he faced Cilan and his [[Crustle]]. His Serperior manged to defeat Crustle with [[Frenzy Plant]].
+
[[File:BW073 18.jpg|thumb|Trip about to defeat a frustrated Bianca with her Emboar.]]
  +
Trip came to the Donamite Tournament and registered in the event with his Conkeldurr, who evolved from Gurrdurr. Ash was amazed and was reminded many fighting-type Pokémon would participate. Trip chided Ash, who was angered and tried to backtalk to Trip, but was stopped by Trip's Conkeldurr. Trip saw he would face Bianca in the first round, thinking it would be a very easy fight he'd win.<ref name="BW072">[[BW072: The Clubsplosion Begins!]]</ref> Trip managed to take photos of Iris' battle with Burgundy. Trip also told Ash he won his battle against Angus and Simisage by pure luck, considering him "low class", for Scraggy didn't even manage to master Focus Blast attack. Regardless, Trip faced Bianca in the battle and sent Conkeldurr against Bianca's Emboar. Conkeldurr managed to block Emboar's attacks and trapped him inside Rock Tomb, then proceeded to defeat Emboar with Stone Edge.<ref name="BW073">[[BW073: Search for the Clubultimate!]]</ref> Fortunately for Bianca, Emboar managed to collect the stones and use Fling to throw the stones back at Conkeldurr. Conkeldurr deflected the attacks, but Emboar took its concrete pillars and threw them in its face, defeating Conkeldurr and Trip. Trip saw he had much to learn and still planned on defeating Alder. With his Conkeldurr healed, Trip declined Ash's battle challenge and left off.<ref name="BW074">[[BW074: A Clubsplosion of Excitement!]]</ref>
   
In [[BW094]], he battled Ash for the fourth time in the finals. His Serperior managed to defeat [[Ash's Pignite]] with [[SolarBeam]], despite the type disadvantage, winning the tournament. He later started his battle against his hero, [[Alder]].
+
Trip came to Lacumosa Town to participate in the [[Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup]]. Trip encountered Alder and was still annoyed by his goofy personality. Regardless, his aim was to battle his way to the top and defeat Alder. In the first round, Trip faced [[Burgundy]] and her [[Burgundy's Darmanitan|Darmanitan]], where his Servine was revealed to have evolved into [[Serperior]]. It frightened Darmanitan with Leer and then finished it off with [[Solar Beam]]. This made Burgundy sad and Ash shocked Trip won the battle so easily and quickly.<ref name="BW092">[[BW092: Jostling for the Junior Cup!]]</ref> Trip managed to defeat Manny and Heatmor with Serperior and advance to the Semi-Finals. Trip met up with Cynthia, who asked him why wasn't he watching the battles. Trip claimed he already had planned his strategies, but his desire was to defeat Alder and face Cynthia next. His next opponent was Cilan and sent Serperior against his Crustle. Using the same tactics, Serperior used Leer and Solar Beam, but Crustle managed to withstand the attacks. After dodging Rock Slide and X-Scissor, Serperior defeated Crustle with Frenzy Plant. Alder was impressed, thinking Trip will go far - a point Trip wanted to prove by defeating Alder, after winning the final match.<ref name="BW093">[[BW093: Battling Authority Once Again!]]</ref>
   
In [[BW095]], the battle ended with [[Alder's Boufalant|Alder's Bouffalant]] defeating Trip's Serperior.
+
[[File:BW094 14.jpg|thumb|left|Alder presents Trip with the Junior Cup trophy.]]
  +
Trip watched the battle against Ash and Iris, and was even worried at Dragonite's power. With Iris defeated, Trip faced Ash in the finals, sending Serperior against Ash's Pignite. Pignite and Serperior launched their attacks at each other, but both had missed their targets continuously. In the end, Serperior tried to leer Pignite, who jumped up, but was hit by Solar Beam. Pignite retaliated with Fire Pledge, but missed and was defeated by Serperior's Frenzy Plant. Trip was the winner of the Cup and received the trophy from Alder. As promised, Alder battled Trip by sending Bouffalant against Trip's Serperior. Serperior charged itself with Solar Beam, as the battle started.<ref name="BW094">[[BW094: Ash, Iris and Trip: Then There Were Three!]]</ref> Bouffalant withstood Solar Beam and Dragon Tail, surprising Trip at Bouffalant's guts. Alder reminded Trip he was battling a Champion and had Bouffalant attack with Head Charge, defeating Serperior with one attack. Alder pointed out it did not matter if one won or lost, for one should always be with their Pokémon through the battles, claiming that is the true strength that comes from the battles. Trip admitted he did like Serperior and promised to have a rematch with Alder one day to prove what he had learned. Later on, Trip bid farewell with the heroes, who was glad to have battled Alder - and have grown stronger.<ref name="BW095">[[BW095: Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!]]</ref>
   
In[[ BW105]], Trip entered the Unova League. He began his 5th battle with [[Ash Ketchum]]. Trip used his Serperior and Ash used his Pikachu.
+
===Season 16: BW Adventures in Unova and Beyond===
  +
[[File:BW105 20.jpg|thumb|Trip manages to throw Ash off-balance, as his strategy is working.]]
  +
Trip came to Vertress City to enter the Unova League. He met up with the heroes and asked of Ash not to lose before their battle. This surprised Ash, Iris and Cilan, seeing Trip had changed. Trip saw he was to battle Ash in the first round - a battle Trip was actually looking forward to. Trip used Serperior and Ash used Pikachu, so Cilan commented Trip wanted to take advantage of speed to win the round. Serperior dodged Pikachu's attacks and retaliated with Dragon Tail, hitting Pikachu. Trip smiled, for his strategy was working.<ref name="BW105">[[BW105: Curtain Up, Unova League!]]</ref> Trip's Serperior continued attacking Pikachu and managed to bind it by using Wrap. Pikachu retaliated with Thunderbolt, though Serperior binded his tail to the ground, negating the damage. Pikachu managed to free itself by using Iron Tail on the ground and clashed with Serperior. For a final clash, Pikachu used Iron Tail and Electro Ball at the same time. Serperior withstood the attack, but took too much damage and fainted. After his defeat, Trip bumped into Ash at the Pokémon Center. Trip did not bear any grudge, for he decided to grow stronger and challenge Alder one day. Ash and Trip shook hands, as Trip went off to continue his journey.<ref name="BW106">[[BW106: Mission: Defeat Your Rival!]]</ref>
   
In [[BW106]], the battle ended with Trip's Serperior being defeated by [[Ash's Pikachu]], resulting in Ash's first victory against Trip and Trip was eliminated from the [[Unova Leage]]. After the battle, Ash and Trip ended their rivalry and they became friends.
+
Looking at the battlefield of the Unova League one last time, Ash remembered his adventures that led him to this place, including his own rival, Trip.<ref name="BW110">[[BW110: A Unova League Evolution!]]</ref>
   
==Pokémon:==
+
Trip was seen in Best Wishes! ending theme. Trip continued his journey with Serperior and took some photos.
Besides his Serperior, Trip has gained these Pokemon through unknown events and are a close resemblance to Ash's; has obtained the same [[Flying]]-type Pokemon, two different Water- and Fire-types, an Ice-type, and a different Figting-type, but is still unknown if he has caught other Pokémon than his current team.

Trip
(シューティー Shuutii)
Trip
General
Gender: Male
Hometown: Nuvema Town
Region: Unova
Friends: Ash
Class: Pokémon Trainer
First Appearance: In The Shadow of Zekrom! (anime)
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 (games)
Voice actor: Jamie McGonnigal (English)
Akeno Watanabe (Japanese)

Trip is a character appearing in the Best Wishes! series.

AppearanceEdit

Trip has dirty blonde hair with ice blue eyes. He wears a violet undershirt, and an orange jacket over a dark-gray hooded sweater, and a black waist-belt. He also wears white pants with black and white trainers. Trip is often seeing with his camera, taking pictures of his journey.

PersonalityEdit

While traveling to take on the Unova League, Trip takes photographs of Pokémon that he encounters and is also known as a Pokémon Photographer. Trip has been shown to care for his Pokémon, though not to the extent Ash does. He is quite obnoxious, much like Gary Oak. The main reason he took a dislike to Ash is because of his training style.

He did not seem to hate Ash nearly as much as Paul and Gary, but still detested him. However, before running into Alder, they were shown to have at least some respect for each other. Trip is bound to learn that becoming the champion does not depend on just becoming strong. His goal was to become the next Pokémon Champion of the Unova region, but was defeated by Ash in the first round of the Unova League.

Trip does not think very highly of the Kanto region — or anyone from there. He thinks of anyone from Kanto as a redneck from "the boonies" who should go back to the basics of Pokémon.

BiographyEdit

BW034 14

Trip promising to battle Alder.

While Trip was a kid, he watched the battle of Alder against a trainer. After Alder won the battle, he advised Trip to grow stronger and take on the League if he wanted to challenge Alder one day.[1]

Season 14: Black and WhiteEdit

BW001 10

Trip receives his Pokédex, starting his journey.

Trip was a beginning trainer, who went to Nuvema Town to choose his first Pokémon. Ash was friendly to him at first, but Trip refused to be friends with someone from the "boonies". After some thinking, Trip chose Snivy as his starter Pokémon and was given five Poké Balls and a Pokédex as well. Later on, Trip came out and started taking pictures of his journey, including Ash's Pikachu, because it was a rare thing to see in Unova. Trip wondered if it was strong and challenged Ash to a battle. Because of Zekrom, Pikachu's power was weakened and it was unable to use Electric-type moves. Pikachu tried to attack with Iron Tail and Quick Attack, but was defeated by Snivy's Leaf Storm. Trip taunted Ash, telling him to go back to the basics as he left for Accumula Town.[2]

Shooti&#039;s Evil face

Trip chides Ash, seeing Ash will lose.

As Ash came to the Battle Club, he was startled to see Trip enlisted in. Cilan remembered Trip actually battled Chili in the Striaton City's Gym and won the Trio Badge. Per request, Don George contacted Trip. Trip was displeased at Ash, since he reminded Ash Snivy won against Pikachu. However, Trip was slightly curious and came to the Battle Club, agreeing on a 6-on-6 battle. Ash admitted he only had 5 Pokémon, making Trip annoyed and refused the battle. Iris managed to taunt Trip, claiming he was a little kid, so Trip accepted a 5-on-5 battle. Trip sent Tranquill against Ash's Oshawott, who was immediately defeated by Tranquill's Aerial Ace (due to Tranquill's Super Luck ability). Ash sent Tepig to battle, who was also defeated, by Work Out and Aerial Ace combo. Tranquill attempted to defeat Pikachu with the same combo, but Pikachu grabbed Tranquill's leg, threw it away and defeated it with Volt Tackle. Trip sent Servine, who evolved from Snivy. Servine managed to hit Pikachu with Leaf Tornado and defeated him with Cut. Trip chided Ash, doubting he would win, but Ash sent Snivy, who got hit by Servine's attacks. Using Attract, Snivy infatuated Servine and managed to defeat it. For his next Pokémon, Trip sent Frillish, while Ash swapped Snivy for Pidove. Pidove tried to attack, but Frillish defended itself and defeated Pidove with Water Pulse. Ash sent Snivy back, who used Vine Whip, but due to Cursed Body, Snivy couldn't execute the move any more. Frillish dodged Attract and defeated Snivy with Water Pulse and Hex combination. Trip then stated that Pikachu and Snivy were improving well, but the rest of his team members were a worthless pathetic joke like their Trainer. Ash promised to become stronger and battle Trip again.[3]

Trip came to Castelia City and was using his Lampent to get rid of a swarm of Venipede, teaming up with other Fire-Type trainers. After destroying a large amount of the Venipede, Ash tried to stop him. Trip ignored Ash and told Lampent to hit the leader of the Venipede with Shadow Ball. Ash jumped in the way and got injured, then said they should move them out of the way. Trip first refused. He finally agreed, and they cleared out the Venipede with their Tranquill. Trip jokingly said he'd battle Ash again once he was worthy, marking a minor sprout in their friendship. Trip left off, since he couldn't wait too much for the Castelia City's Gym to be opened.[4]

BW034 8

Trip takes a photo of Iris' Axew.

Trip was in the area and attempted to catch a Palpitoad, but Ash interfered and caused Trip, by accident, hit Ash with the Ball. Trip was furious, but noticing Iris and Axew, he took a picture of Axew, who was from the Village of Dragons. Trip, however, claimed Iris was disrespectful for her fear of ice-type Pokémon. Ash tried to challenge Trip to a battle, but Trip ignored him, wanting to challenge Iris. Iris, however, claimed she was not in a top-mood, since Trip would only challenge Axew as her only dragon-type Pokémon. Trip almost left, but was taunted by Iris (who called him a kid) to battle Ash. Trip decided a 3-on-3 battle and sent Servine against Ash's Snivy. This surprised Trip, claiming Servine was stronger than Snivy. This time, Servine managed to hit Snivy with Leaf Tornado, dodge her Attract attack and defeat her with Cut. As they sent their Pokémon, Trip admitted wants to become strong enough to defeat the Champion, Alder. Ash sent Oshawott against Trip's Timburr. Oshawott was intimidated, but Ash encouraged Oshawott to battle. Oshawott repeatedly used Aqua Jet, but Oshawott continuously missed. Trip took some photos and showed to Ash Oshawott's eyes are closed when he uses Aqua Jet. Timburr managed to hit Oshawott with Low Kick, but Oshawott retaliated with Water Gun and defeated Timburr with Razor Shell. To copy Ash's battling style, Trip sent Vanillish, a Pokémon with type disadvantage against Tepig. Tepig managed to hit Vanillish with Flame Charge, but got hit by Ice Beam. Vanillish used Blizzard against Tepig's Flame Charge, causing a double knockout and ending the match in a tie. Trip left, while Ash promised he will defeat Trip one day.[1]

BW042 10

Trip decides to leave the Tournament, after his loss.

Trip came to the local Battle Club Tournament in Nimbasa Town and registered for participation, then left off. He later learned he would have to fight Cilan, the Gym Leader. After watching the battle of Georgia vs. Ash, he commented Ash was lucky enough to win the battle. He came to the battlefield and faced Cilan.[5] Cilan sent Dwebble against Trip's Gurdurr. During the clash, Gurdurr managed to hit Dwebble with Rock Smash, leaving a crack in Dwebble's rock. Cilan's Dwebble avoided Dynamic Punch attack, then used Shell Smash and imprisoned Gurdurr with Rock Slide, causing it to be separated from the rail it carried. With X-Scissor, Dwebble defeated Gurdurr. Trip He took a picture of Cilan, saying it was to remember his anger and frustration. After healing his Gurdurr, Trip decided to leave. Ash tried to persuade Trip to stay, who believed he wouldn't get stronger by just watching how others battle and went off.[6]

Season 15: BW Rival DestiniesEdit

BW054 5

Trip expresses his desire to battle the Champion, Alder.

Trip came to a small town, where he met the heroes (to his displeasure). Ash showed he got four badges, while Trip obtained five. Regardless, Trip admitted he came to find Alder, the Champion, and request for a battle. Trip told Alder was seen nearby; the group encountered Alder on Officer Jenny's motorcycle, since he flirted with her. Alder fell down, since Jenny refused his charms. Trip came to Alder, who recognized Trip as "Tristan". Trip and Ash challenged Alder to a battle, but Alder claimed he could only battle one at a time. Trip allowed Ash to go first, since Trip could study Alder's battle strategies. Trip watched the battle, surprised Alder did not do anything to counter Pikachu's moves against his Bouffalant. Trip was annoyed to see Alder was actually sleeping and yelled at Alder, who woke up. Alder confessed his loss and claimed he was too hungry to have a battle with Trip. Trip reminded Alder about telling Trip the importance of strength. Alder could not remember he told this to "Tristan", causing Trip even more annoyance and he left.[7]

BW073 18

Trip about to defeat a frustrated Bianca with her Emboar.

Trip came to the Donamite Tournament and registered in the event with his Conkeldurr, who evolved from Gurrdurr. Ash was amazed and was reminded many fighting-type Pokémon would participate. Trip chided Ash, who was angered and tried to backtalk to Trip, but was stopped by Trip's Conkeldurr. Trip saw he would face Bianca in the first round, thinking it would be a very easy fight he'd win.[8] Trip managed to take photos of Iris' battle with Burgundy. Trip also told Ash he won his battle against Angus and Simisage by pure luck, considering him "low class", for Scraggy didn't even manage to master Focus Blast attack. Regardless, Trip faced Bianca in the battle and sent Conkeldurr against Bianca's Emboar. Conkeldurr managed to block Emboar's attacks and trapped him inside Rock Tomb, then proceeded to defeat Emboar with Stone Edge.[9] Fortunately for Bianca, Emboar managed to collect the stones and use Fling to throw the stones back at Conkeldurr. Conkeldurr deflected the attacks, but Emboar took its concrete pillars and threw them in its face, defeating Conkeldurr and Trip. Trip saw he had much to learn and still planned on defeating Alder. With his Conkeldurr healed, Trip declined Ash's battle challenge and left off.[10]

Trip came to Lacumosa Town to participate in the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup. Trip encountered Alder and was still annoyed by his goofy personality. Regardless, his aim was to battle his way to the top and defeat Alder. In the first round, Trip faced Burgundy and her Darmanitan, where his Servine was revealed to have evolved into Serperior. It frightened Darmanitan with Leer and then finished it off with Solar Beam. This made Burgundy sad and Ash shocked Trip won the battle so easily and quickly.[11] Trip managed to defeat Manny and Heatmor with Serperior and advance to the Semi-Finals. Trip met up with Cynthia, who asked him why wasn't he watching the battles. Trip claimed he already had planned his strategies, but his desire was to defeat Alder and face Cynthia next. His next opponent was Cilan and sent Serperior against his Crustle. Using the same tactics, Serperior used Leer and Solar Beam, but Crustle managed to withstand the attacks. After dodging Rock Slide and X-Scissor, Serperior defeated Crustle with Frenzy Plant. Alder was impressed, thinking Trip will go far - a point Trip wanted to prove by defeating Alder, after winning the final match.[12]

BW094 14

Alder presents Trip with the Junior Cup trophy.

Trip watched the battle against Ash and Iris, and was even worried at Dragonite's power. With Iris defeated, Trip faced Ash in the finals, sending Serperior against Ash's Pignite. Pignite and Serperior launched their attacks at each other, but both had missed their targets continuously. In the end, Serperior tried to leer Pignite, who jumped up, but was hit by Solar Beam. Pignite retaliated with Fire Pledge, but missed and was defeated by Serperior's Frenzy Plant. Trip was the winner of the Cup and received the trophy from Alder. As promised, Alder battled Trip by sending Bouffalant against Trip's Serperior. Serperior charged itself with Solar Beam, as the battle started.[13] Bouffalant withstood Solar Beam and Dragon Tail, surprising Trip at Bouffalant's guts. Alder reminded Trip he was battling a Champion and had Bouffalant attack with Head Charge, defeating Serperior with one attack. Alder pointed out it did not matter if one won or lost, for one should always be with their Pokémon through the battles, claiming that is the true strength that comes from the battles. Trip admitted he did like Serperior and promised to have a rematch with Alder one day to prove what he had learned. Later on, Trip bid farewell with the heroes, who was glad to have battled Alder - and have grown stronger.[14]

Season 16: BW Adventures in Unova and BeyondEdit

BW105 20

Trip manages to throw Ash off-balance, as his strategy is working.

Trip came to Vertress City to enter the Unova League. He met up with the heroes and asked of Ash not to lose before their battle. This surprised Ash, Iris and Cilan, seeing Trip had changed. Trip saw he was to battle Ash in the first round - a battle Trip was actually looking forward to. Trip used Serperior and Ash used Pikachu, so Cilan commented Trip wanted to take advantage of speed to win the round. Serperior dodged Pikachu's attacks and retaliated with Dragon Tail, hitting Pikachu. Trip smiled, for his strategy was working.[15] Trip's Serperior continued attacking Pikachu and managed to bind it by using Wrap. Pikachu retaliated with Thunderbolt, though Serperior binded his tail to the ground, negating the damage. Pikachu managed to free itself by using Iron Tail on the ground and clashed with Serperior. For a final clash, Pikachu used Iron Tail and Electro Ball at the same time. Serperior withstood the attack, but took too much damage and fainted. After his defeat, Trip bumped into Ash at the Pokémon Center. Trip did not bear any grudge, for he decided to grow stronger and challenge Alder one day. Ash and Trip shook hands, as Trip went off to continue his journey.[16]

Looking at the battlefield of the Unova League one last time, Ash remembered his adventures that led him to this place, including his own rival, Trip.[17]

Trip was seen in Best Wishes! ending theme. Trip continued his journey with Serperior and took some photos.
