The next day of Club Battle begins, with all of the competitors in the crowd. Luke is filming everything for his documentary as the announcer declares that Trip will be fighting Cilan. In the commentary booth, Don George notes that as Cilan is a Gym Leader, he will be a very tough opponent. On the field, Cilan warmly greets Trip and hopes that the battling flavor he saw during Trip’s Striaton Gym Battle will re-emerge. Trip confidently asserts that he and his Pokémon have significantly improved since he beat Chili, and promises that their battle will be much more exciting.
