    This thread is such a life savor. Good to see Pignite holding the battles down outside the rat lol. He beats Mijumaru since Mijumaru has more looses then wins while Pignite is dead even.

    Anyone surprised?
    Thanks for that, added it to the first post. Honestly, I'm a little surprised that Ash is so low. I thought he'd at least be higher than 60%.

    Well one of Snivy's wins is a technicality. She was knocked out by Emboar, but her battle was won overall, just like Boldore's second battle was. Still, they're on pretty even footing and the writers seem to be trying to portray Snivy as strong, even if she loses quite a bit.

    I've updated with the rivals by the way, and I might do Dawn after a while too, since she's reappearing.

    WAIT.

    Before you call me a stan for Snivy, both Ash's Oshawott and Snivy are my favourite of his starters, so I don't favour either of them more than the other. It's obvious that Oshawott has been losing an awful lot.
    I don't care if Oshawott has lost a lot. At least he's won more battles than Snivy. That's all that matters in my opinion.

    I can't believe Pikachu has won 15 battles. People always complain that he loses a lot, but he has more victories than any of Ash's other Pokemon. Color me impressed.

    That's irrelevant, Snivy does have a better win/loss ratio. Haha at Excadrill when it was a Drilbur too, impressed you counted that in there.

    If that's how you want to look at it...

    We each have different viewings of the matter, let's leave it at that

    I can't believe Pikachu has won 15 battles. People always complain that he loses a lot, but he has more victories than any of Ash's other Pokemon. Color me impressed.
    Agreed, im pleased that Pikachu seems powerful again.

    I always find the first 20/30 episodes of each saga are quite painful to watch seeing Pikachu as weak as he is from the regional power reset.

    It's a bit of an illusion. We see Pikachu battle a lot more then the other Pokemon. We kind of get used to seeing him winning against extremely powerful opponents, and when he loses people get surprised because he's so experienced. You don't really think of it from a " Pikachu is a living breathing thing in the anime that makes mistakes " angle more then a " Pikachu is so strong I can't believe it lost to a Snivy " angle. His losses seem to mean more to people because there's less to justify them beyond anime logic.

    Since people seem interested I'll do the battling strength for the main Pokemon, too:

        Spoiler:


    Rivals!

    Bianca: 33% (On Screen. 45% otherwise.)
    Trip: 54%
    Burgundy: 0%
    Georgia: 57%
    Stephan: 71%

    Interesting that Ash and Trip are even now.

    Hey Valoo!

    Good going on the rivals, but I spotted an error concerning Trip's Conkeldurr. You only mention it 'As Timburr' and then list the three battles it has had as Timburr, Gurdurr and Conkeldurr, but without calling them as such.

    But... Snivy has only won once in a gym battle.. -.- Don't know, but to me, that matters.
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    I can't @ Bianca and Burgundy being below 50%. Couldn't they have given Burgundy at least one victory? She's supposed to be Cilan's rival, but her skills are never really shown. I hate that the writers are treating her like a joke. They better not ruin Bianca; I want her to slay the competition.

    Gym Battles are the only battles that count/seem important to you? Every battle that Valoo has listed is a battle, and as annoying as it may be that Snivy hasn't starred in a Gym, she's still doing very well.

    If your familiar with Call of Duty and Halo, think of the Wins and Losses as a K/D ratio. Oshawott is -1, whilst Snivy is 1.

    Woo who would have thought Leavanny and Boldore are doing better than Palpitoad, Oshawott, Snivy or Pignite? XD But again, they have battled much less :/

    Agreed, I don't like that Burgundy is a complete joke and hasn't won anything. They could at least give her the illusion of getting better and have her win something. Although in her defense, Cilan did somewhat acknowledge her skills in the Clubsplosion when she was giving Iris a bit of trouble. It still ended in defeat but Cilan did seem surprised with the way Burgundy was able to use Dewott in that battle. Oh well, we'll see later on if she gets better.

    Bianca has gotten better over time though, most recently shown in the Clubsplosion, though she lost in a pretty bad way ^^; But on the other hand she's obviously been getting better and apparently is good enough to be in this tournament.

    Although I won't deny how incredibly frustrating it is that two different versions of Movie 14 exist. It was a nice idea, but definetly shouldn't have happened -.-
    Yes because an Oshawott colliding with an Emboar's Flare Blitz that causes Emboar to faint is soooo canon.xD

    Anime logic ftw

    It seems unrealstic definetly, but every movie always seems to have an unrealstic battle. Pikachu defeated Golem, Pinsir and Venemoth all at once (not to mention Golem being immune) in MOV1, and Piplup was on par with Empoleon in MOV10.

    I accept it. And it's also nice to think Ash's team are a lot stronger than they look.

    Good female Trainers are few and far between in the anime.

    It almost seems to make more sense to make Georgia Ash's Rival. At least she's a threat.

    Bianca defeated the "main rival" in the Donamite, so I think Bianca will be different from all of the other female trainer. Well I hope so XD

    It's pretty clear that you stan for Snivy.

    I'm honestly upset that Stephan has won 71% of his battles. I'm starting to think that he really is one of Ash's rivals. I'm seething with anger. I yearn for some strong female rivals.

    I just knew Cilan was going to have the best battle record.

    Nope. I stan for Oshawott and Snivy. Nothing more, nothing less. Come on Kira, you know I clearly state out the facts, and at the moment this definetly fits the case.

    That battle ranks pretty high up there with being the worst battles of the region.

    The writers threw Bianca a bone after realizing she was so terrible, in my opinion. She'll have to do a lot more to redeem herself.

    Yet you're only defending Snivy. I admit that she's won her share of battles, but even she doesn't come close to Oshawott's level. Maybe there's still hope for Snivy though. Maybe she'll get her chance to show us what she can do during the upcoming tournament.

    Funny how Leavanny and Boldore are tied as Ash's second strongest. I would have expected Pignite to 'rank' higher too, with the amount he's been winning recently, but I guess he lost a lot as a Tepig. Georgia is surprisingly high there too.

    Added Pansage's battle in today's episode.

    And there is a perfectly good reason as to why. That being that in this particular situation, Snivy is doing better than Oshawott. I'd love to see them on par, but they're not, and this can obviously be seen with Valoos battle catelog. Why doesn't she come close to Oshawott's level when she clearly has a better win/loss ratio?

    Maybe there's still hope for Snivy though. Maybe she'll get her chance to show us what she can do during the upcoming tournament.
    That'd be nice. I think she should have starred alongside Swadloon in Castelia Gym. I enjoy Pikachu being the star of the show, but for once even I feel that his win their wasn't needed considering he starred in two other gyms.

    Updated with today's episode. I'm not counting Oshawott knocking itself out as a loss, either, since it seems sort of pointless.

    e: Also edited in Dawn and Piplup (only detailing Piplup's battles in BW2), but I'll update with the rest of the team asap.

    They're pretty much even, I'd guess. Snivy has more wins than losses (and one of those wins is sort of iffy), so even if she has won a higher percentage of her battles than Oshawott has, Oshawott still has more wins. They do like portraying her as a super strong sassy princes, though.

    Hey, it has been a while since you updated the thread, also it may died soon, well not anymore as this resets the counter....but yeah.

    Here's some from the last couple of episodes that haven't been updated:

    Ash:

    Scraggy Vs. Larvitar- Draw
    Pignite Vs. Mamoswine- Draw
    Oshawott Vs. Dragonite- Defending Iris, no conclusion.

    Iris:

    Dragonite Vs. Hydreigon- Hydreigon, before capture.

    Dawn:

    Piplup Vs. Dragonite- Defending Iris, no conclusion.
    Mamoswine Vs. Pignite- Draw.

    I think this cover the ones that were missed from the last two episodes.
