'''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. He, however, loses in the qualifying rounds of the Unova League.

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.

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, marking a minor sprout in their friendship.

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 Shooti)
Shootianime
General
Hometown: Nuvema Town
Region: Unova
Class: Pokémon Trainer
Friends: Ash
First Appearance: Pokémon: Black & White
Voice actor: Jamie McGonnigal (English)

Akeno Watanabe (Japanese)

Trip (Japanese: シューティー Shooti) is a male character from the series Pokémon: Black & White. He had a non-friendly rivalry with Ash, meaning they hated 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 as a Pokémon Photographer. Trip has been shown to care for his Pokémon despite not being the most caring Trainer. He is quite obnoxious, much like Gary Oak. The main reason he took a dislike to Ash is because of his training style and the fact that he is from Kanto. He seemed to dislike Ash more than Gary but less than Paul, as he often teased Ash about losing. 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 is to become the next Pokémon Champion of the Unova region. However, he lost to Ash in the qualifying rounds of the Unova League.

Trip does not like the Kanto region — or anyone from there. He thinks of anyone from Kanto as an idiot who knows nothing about Pokémon. He considers Ash to be a worthless redneck from "the boonies" who should go back to the basics of Pokémon.

BiographyEdit

Trip made his first appearance when he was a beginning trainer shown choosing his first Pokémon. Ash was friendly to him at first. He eventually chose Snivy and wanted to battle Ash's Pikachu because of it not being able to be found in his region. Because of Zekrom, Pikachu's power was weakened and it was unable to use Electric-type moves, resulting in its defeat. Trip taunted Ash, telling him to go back to the basics as he left for Accumula Town.

Trip later reappeared in at the local Battle Club. Ash challenged him to a 5-on-5 battle. Trip emerged victorious when his Tranquill easily defeated Oshawott and Tepig, Servine defeated Pikachu and his Frillish beats Pidove and Snivy. It was revealed that he used Servine to defeat Chili's Pansear at the Striaton Gym for his Trio Badge. He then later stated that Pikachu and Snivy were improving well, but the rest of his team members were a worthless pathetic joke like their Trainer.

He 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 later left, jokingly saying he'd battle Ash again once he was worthy, marking a minor sprout in their friendship.

He reappeared in when he attempted to catch what would become Ash's Palpitoad, but Ash fell off a cliff, got hit by Trip's Poké Ball and scared Palpitoad away. Trip was furious, but they decided to just battle and Trip challenged 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 of them. Trip walked away as Ash said goodbye to him, but didn't respond.

He returned in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa! where he competed in the Don Battle tournament in Nimbasa Town where he was up against Cilan in the first round.

His battle began with Cilan in Cilan Versus Trip, Ash Versus Georgia! where his newly evolved Gurdurr is defeated by Cilan's Dwebble. He took a picture of Cilan, saying it was to remember his anger and frustration, proving he takes losses harder and dwells on them as this was possibly his first loss ever. After healing his Gurdurr, he left and moved on to the next city.

Trip reappeared in 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 reappeared when 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.

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.

In Jostling for the Junior Cup!, he participated in the Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup and 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 SolarBeam.

TriviaEdit

  • Along with Bianca and Cameron, Trip has a final evolved Pokemon of one of the three Unova starters.
  • As the BW Saga progresses, he starts to focus mainly on one Pokemon e.g. Conkeldurr, Serperior.
  • Of Ash's three rivals (Gary, Paul and Trip) he is the only one to not battle Ash in a full battle in their league match. They used their main Pokemon - Serperior and Pikachu respectively - in a single battle.
  • Despite defeating Ash usually, Trip always gets out on the first round in tournaments while Ash makes it to at least the top 8 or even higher.
