So right after Ash's pathetic battle against Richie, Richie goes and loses? Haha, how the mighty have fallen! I wish we had seen his whole battle though, and not just pieces of it. I guess they wanted to showcase more of Ash and Richie since this was their farewell episode, so they ignored the Pokemon battles. Ash going to the League stadium one last time really touched me. It meant he hadn't given up on his dream. 9/10 for the good ending.
