Episode 115 of Pokemon Journeys showed the complete bracket for the Masters Tournament and confirmed that Lance will face Diantha in the second match. Alain, the only non-champion to achieve the Masters Eight, fought Leon in the first battle. Leon won. They agreed to fight each other and were all ready to take the other side.
The problem is that no matter who wins, Leon will still be facing them in the finals. The third battle between Cynthia and Iris will be the battle of the bracket. Steven Stone will take on Ash in the fourth battle. This is the Masters Tournament’s competitive level, so there will be more battles than just the Lance and Diantha fights.
