What would your reaction be if...

If she turns out to have eight badges or somehow gets them in the remaining like three episodes before the league starts? I'd be like lolwut.
Seven. The eighth badge would be the one from Drayden.

:drowsy:And where would the other seven badges had come from seeing as though she never battled any gymleaders on screen? If you're going to do something, atleast let us see how you got it. Damn!

as i said before i will do a godamm facepalm if that happens
 
To be honest, I wouldn't be all that surprised.

The Companions sit on the sidelines and comment, but considering how much the writers just LOVE Iris (perhaps a bit too much...), I wouldn't be surprised if they had her take part in the league for some BS reason AND have her win it all with another one.

Thing is, I think I'd be okay with that. To be brutally honest, Ash should lose early because BW Ash does NOT deserve to be in the top 16 this time. Heck, he barely deserves to make it though the preliminary/qaulifying round, IMHO.

How can you say that? Ash is been in how many leagues now? Even if you don't think he deserves barely be in the league doesn't mean Iris should be the one to win it. Ash should get first choice because of how many he's already been in. It has nothing to do whether she's a girl or boy.
 
"I hope she wins!"
But actually, that makes a lot of sense. Iris is champ in bw2, so maybe they'll have her be the new champ in Best Wishes.

Wow...what a massive spoiler you just threw out into the forums there. Thanks. Thanks very much.

The Anime forum intentionally has no spoiler policy because game events can easily effect events in the show and thus will always be speculation. It's really not a spoiler when 99% of the people here know it.
 
Well unless she whips out 8 badges that she's been keeping secret (i'd be a little astonished if she did :p) It wont happen. If she did compete, I think she'd do well and I also think it would anger a lot of people.

Here's hoping it doesn't happen!
 
So to the remaining 1 percent who don't want to be spoiled on anything your message is what...? Tough S***?
The remaining 1 percent need to be ultra careful when looking at completely unrelated threads. Something about that is just not right.

I really don't want to continue this so we'll just leave it at that. I appreciate that you're an administrator so I genuinely don't mean any disrespect. It's just undoubtedly a flawed approach.

It's either hinder the 99% or the 1%. If there was a great way to not hinder anyone, we'd certainly do it. Feel free to PM me with any ideas you have in regards to that.

I apologize for any inconvenience, but honestly I'm not sure how you've managed not to not know that. If you could tell me your spoiler dodging techniques I'd really appreciate it as i usually get spoiled the day anything comes out. :D


Back on topic, maybe they could write in a convenient plot device like a raffle ticket which gives a chance to compete in the league.
 
I REALLY want other main group members to enter league besides Ash but I loath Iris. I would probably react by accusing the writers of hating me personally. I'd actually be a feel better about it later because that would mean OTHER companions would enter the league in the future. Though in the short term I would be mad at her for not having a full team which would cause the writers to not have any full battle rounds.

well so iris is out of the question by annoiance, misty because of being a gym leader and both may and dawn for being coordinators and only IF they made a rule that made them participate in them that could happen but the odds are soooooooooooooo farfetch so the only way that could happen is the new girl of gen IV IF gen VI exist

I don't see why can't they just have the sixth girl(If there would be a such thing) do something else. There are so many competitions she can do out there besides for gyms and Contests if the writers can be creative again. Musical, Triathlon, Ringer, and so on. I'll even except her being a PokeRanger if nothing else. Geez!
 
Is it bad if I admit I watch the show for Iris?


Nah! You just keep lovin' who you love! :D

(She may not be the Best Female Companion Ever, but I lay that at the feet of the writing staff. And she does have her moments.)
 
:'D I admit I got back into watching the show because Cynthia was in it *golly I'm so shallow*
 
The hatedom for Iris will become the most massive the pokecommunity has ever seen. greater than that of misty and May leaving, Team rocket, piplup, and ritchie combined.

Ditto that. It would create a firestorm of hate as big as a supernova. She's already cheaply gotten through a lot of her problems with little trouble and minimal effort. If she somehow entered the league, god forbid she would win, the blazing inferno of the Iris hatred could cook the Pokemon fandom and community to ashes. I would know, I'd be part of it. The show would probably really tank after that. Let's hope and pray that never happens, or there'd be nothing left of this community except a pile of charred remains.

Somehow I would think the show would still be somewhat intact, though I would agree that Iris somehow whipping up a badge case and winning eight badges then going on to win the league and afterwards possibly winning the champions league and becoming the new Unova league champ would most likely irk us all to hail and back. But I would say that the show would only tank if the majority of the japanese audience finds massive fault with all this since it is made there. Somehow I think the writers couldn't care less what we think of the show's handling of the plot which according to most of us here, isn't well executed.
 
What's a real funny thought about all this is finding how and when could she have collected badges. When Ash and Cilan were asleep or off screen?

In any case if she was collecting badges, it would be atleast decent of them to show Iris earning them like Kotesu(excuse spelling) did.
