Not much to go off of right now. Seems a bit early to be there already though...

Summary:
Ash and his friends have arrived in Mistralton City. They visit the Gym Leader of the Mistralton Gym, Skyla, but the Gym only takes reservations. Hearing that there will be battles called 'Air Battles' taking place, they make a reservation for the afternoon and decide to watch the morning battle(s?).

Not much to go off? It's great to see we've gotten to Mistralton already, I'm quite happy actually. :D And judging by the title, Cilan challenging it too? AWESOME! I might have something to do with Type advantage, maybe Cilan already knows Skyla. I wouldn't be suprised if Cilan was a plane connoisseur. I'd like more Iris development tbh.

It sorta reminds me of Dawn vs Maylene, if only because one of the main/supporting characters are battling a gym leader. I enjoyed Cilan vs Chilli, buut that seemed more about the brothers, so I'll be looking forward to Cilan vs Skyla. I'm interested in why he wants to battle her in particular, though.

As he is already a train connoisseur, he may as well just call himself a public transportation connoisseur XD But yes, I would like more Iris development, too. I can't decide if they're waiting to bring in something epic regarding the 8th gym, or are just plain ignoring her.

In terms of info at the point I posted this last night. Great in terms of? That maybe we can an extensive post Unova arc? Cilan has no flying types, so maybe he barrows Ash Tranquill. Unless it's like Battle Subway and it's on top of a plane. Cilan gets everything poor Iris )=.

Yeah Cilan vs. Chilli didn't have the gym leader vs. gym leader tone. Maybe similar to Roark vs. Byron?. Maybe she will get some development between here at Icirrus.

    Yeah it would seem that way. Unless Trip some how works himself into the episode. Regardless I hope we get a Trip appearance and a battle since we haven't had an appearance by Trip since 054 and it was quite brief at that and the last battle was 042.

    That is what I'm thinking for both. He is probably doing it to show that he can go up against a flying type gym leader. I'm really excited for it if it's true and I would love Cilan to be interested into Planes. That would be funny if he was.

    First images of Skyla. And apparently she claims to predict the outcome of her gym matches before hand. She and her opponent show their pokemon before hand, thus helping here come up with how the battle with play out.

      Stunfisk can fly. So he most likely will use it.

      Weird. If she were a psychic type trainer, that would make some sort of sense for her in particular to know this. Unless she's just talking about type advantages. Makes me think that there's no point in her battling if she already knows the outcome, so I'm betting that she thinks Ash will lose (when it's their turn) but then of course he wins...she looks cute in the picture, though.

        This looks good and I'm so glad serious Dento is back. I was looking for this preview all day. To me it looks like Skyla is handing out badges to the trainers she thinks that'll win the match so instead of battling she just hands them out to the trainers which is making Dento and Ash get angry. That is the only guess I could think of but other then that, I'm looking forward to this episode!

          If Cilan DOES battle, he'll probably send his Stunfisk out first and then finish the battle with his Crustle. His Pansage doesn't stand a chance due to type disadvantage against Skyla's team. I wonder, does Skyla use her game team (Swoobat, Unfezant, Swanna) for the episode?

          I really enjoyed this episode. The only thing I didn't like was Skyla's childish voice...I loved that she won against Cilan. I was so expecting her to lose so she would "see sense" about her rather weak predictions and then battle Ash. I'm excited for the next episode~

          Yeah I agree but I do wish Dento won. The battle was pretty intense and I enjoyed how the battle had went but if only Dento won at the end to prove to her about her predictions being wrong would have been interesting to see but oh well. I say Dento did a great job with that match and I really enjoyed the episode. I miss seeing Dento serious side so this was good to see.

            (It seems I now have a tendency to tune in whenever there is a game character cameo [case-in-point: Subway Brothers] or a gym battle. I still need to watch Clay's battle asdfghjkl)

            Finding Skyla's voice incredibly familiar (and me being bad with voice actor names), I decided to check Bulbapedia, and found that she was voiced by Kana Ueda, i.e. Rin from Fate/Stay Night! That was interesting.

            Anyhow, I thought Cilan provided a very good set-up for the next episode. I mean it was kinda sad seeing him go into a Heroic BSOD but if he won that battle then, in my opinion, Ash's battle wouldn't be as exciting anymore! Or something like that, I don't really know.

            In any case it didn't happen, so yeah Can't wait to see the next episode!!

            Yup, I say that Dento lost so it could be Ash to show her "the error of her ways", so more rests on him = more exciting :P
