    Default How Will Ash Do In The League?

    Well, given a couple of threads that are still open, I think posting this is okay. Where do you guys think Ash will place in the Kalos League?

    I will put my chips on top 4 this time. He's been kinda the hero this Gen and I think he has at least an okay team despite poor type diversity.
    Sig to be updated eventually.

    I think he'll place in the top 8 and I think he will lose to Sawyer because it seems like it's being set up that way.

    Top 4. Top 2 if the writers decide to throw the viewers a bone.

    Top 4 I think since he has a good team this time, but it depends on how the league is paced also.

    Top 8 or Top 4 but that's the highest I think he'll ever get.

    I want to see him win with greninja, but I have a strong feeling he's gonna be top 16. He has too many flying types

    I feel like I'm the only one who's picking rowlet because of it's typing, NOT because it's cute. Please tell me I'm not alone.
    Also, I'm calling it now. The "secret" corocoro hinted with the new starters is going to be synchro evolution.

    After years, I've finally claimed deoxys! Watch your back! hehe...

    Why would that affect how he does in the league? ^^;

    I'm also joining the bandwagon of Top 8 with a loss against Sawyer. With Sceptile and Greninja's rivalry, I really want Sceptile to best him at some point and the Kalos League is a nice place to do so imo.
    Do you like Fan-fiction? How about deciding on different choices? If you like both, come join this Face-Off where you get to decide on the outcomes for what I write!

    Are we expecting him to face teams of Ice, Rock, and Electric types one after the other??

    They will make a callback to Kanto where Ash will finish top 16, just like Kanto.

    Ignores all the other Pokemon he's got at Oak's.

    Even then, his Sinnoh team had a bad Ice weakness and he came out top 4, because he had other Pokémon to deal with that.

    Ash will win.

    At worst he'll lose to Alain in the finals.

    He'll defeat the green kid 6-4 in the quarterfinals.

    Top 2 since he improves throughout every generation excluding BW, he will more than likely lose again but it should be against someone believable that is similar in skill level like a Paul or Tyson were,anything less than that is a big joke.

    They're setting up Sawyer to defeat Ash given all of his losses so far. So unless they have a pre league fight, Sawyer will win.

    If not that, then he will come in at top two at best against some random trainer. Alain isn't an option for numerous reasons

    Sawyer is more like Wally in the sense of he's a new trainer that gets progressively better each time you fight him, and is suppose to come close towards the end but falls short.

    If he doesn't win or doesn't lose to Alain...

    ...then Ash could lose in the finals to a Gen 7 trainer with a mix of old & new Pokémon. Someone like Harrison, except this time half his team is from Sun/Moon region.

    That spurs Ash to head south (or whatever direction) directly to the place.

    What's stopping him from pulling a BW again at the Kalos League though??

    Exactly. Or an Indigo League rehash minus the disobedient mon embarrasment.

    Top 8 or Top 4 at best. Worst case scenario is top 16.

    Currently playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Waiting for Sun and Moon to come out.

    Currently own: All gen 4, 5 and 6 main series games.

    Considering Goodra released until confirmed otherwise.

    I have Asperger Syndrome which makes it hard to socialize, make friends, date and communicate.

    Currently the most hated person.

    My apologies to the users and mods of Serebii for my unprofessional posts.

    I mean we could plausibly have a repeat of Unova's League where his League position regressed.

    Based on what?? I keep seeing people who think he could win, but I never see detailed reasoning on why they think it's possible.
