Trip/Shooti. He was Ash's first rival upon entering Unova. His goal is or was to beat Alder. In the Pokemon league he got into the top 128 which is pathetic for a rival that always beats Ash. And we know he takes pictures of his journey with a camera. His catchphrase is: "Basic." Notice how he looks like Paul a bit?

His Pokemon:

Serperior, Tranqull, Frillish, Lampent, Vanillite, Conkeldurr.

Discuss Trip and your thoughts of him here.

Ugh, Trip.

I don't know what I expected out of him at the beginning of Black and White. I guess I was hoping the writers were going to build up a rivalry between Ash and him like with they did with Paul, but after awhile it was clear that wasn't happening.

To be honest, I think the writers realized what a waste Trip became after a certain point and changed the focus of his character. Thus directing him towards beating Alder as an ultimate goal.

Ash beating Trip so early on in the league just sort of proves how much the writers really wanted to get rid of him after.

By the way, you should probably put Trips' place in the Unova League under a spoiler since not everyone knows what happens yet or wants to know until the dub version airs.

To be honest... Trip for me was one of those characters who has good potential, but, I dunno, to me, his personality was quite lackluster, and he was just quite stale with his little "catchphrases" like, "oh, do you're from the boonies!" For me, he turned out to be like a copy of Paul in a way.

I wish he had more pokemon and didn't rely on his Superior much, though. I mean, it was strong, but, he didn't have to rely on it most of the time. His Vanillite had much potential to be a strong pokemon too, but... yeah, it didn't have much of the spotlight as it needed.

I did wonder why he lost so early in the Unova Leauge, and lost to characters such as Cilan and Bianca in the Club-splosion matches. Hm.
