Oh look, Brinty updated the thread. I looked through Brinty's first post again, and I was stunned at how weak Ash's Starter Pokemon are. Pignite has won 47% of his battles, Oshawott has won 50%, and Snivy has won 55%? I honestly expected better numbers at this point in the saga. I hope they improve soon.
Leavanny is a beast
Ash's Reserves are usually stronger then his in-Region Team. It might be because they're used in fewer battles.Funny how Leavanny and Boldore are tied as Ash's second strongest.
I'll post the new win percentages after World Tournament.
It's hard to believe Oshawott hasn't had an official battle since Clay. Him and Snives really need to be used in battle more, while the reserves need more out of battle scenes
I agree I want to see Oshawott and Snivy battle soon but it migth only happen in the league at this point, after they are done with Drayden and TR the league is next.
I'm starting to feel the league is close since everything in the opening seems to be covered or almost covered(besides the two things I mentioned before) thats why I said that.
I would love if Snivy got an episode talking about her own limitations and learning a new move, she is a starter and seems to be pretty popular so I don't really get why she hasn't gotten and episode for herself by now.
The percent of wins of the main characters is relativy even.
For those percent, we know that Burgundy is a joke rival because she lost all her battles. Georgia isn't a joke because her win/lose ratio is the normal. Bianca has a low ratio (start to win late and not partcipating in Junior Cup are the causes of this) and Stephan have a great wion ratio because the Donamite. Surprise that trip, becuse the Junior CUp has more win than loses.
She does get to do important stuff but like I've said, its helping Oshawott, helping Snivy, helping Scraggy/Axew, etc not something for her, she isn't being ignored but she isn't getting anything either, she is fun but stale at this point.
According to this emolga is extremely overpowered and pignite is ash's weakest starter.
Emolga doesn't get many battles anymore. She hasn't battled in a while.
I noticed the first post updated but promised to do this anyway. Here are my numbers which are a little different then the OP.
Ash: 53% (59 out of 112)
Pikachu: 71% (15 out of 21)
Levanny: 71% (5 out of 7)
Boldore: 57% (4 out of 7)**
Unfezant: 50% (3 out of 6)
Palpitoad: 50% (3 out of 6)
Krookodile: 50% (3 out of 6)***
Oshawott: 50% (8 out of 16)
Snivy: 45% (5 out of 11)**
Pignite: 42% (8 out of 19)*
Scraggy: 38% (5 out of 13)*
Iris: 56% (10 out of 18)

*Draws are counted for the Total Number of Battles
**Counted a Technical Win as a loss if the Pokemon was KO'd
***Only the battles this Pokemon had under their Trainer's ownership are counted
****Only counted this Pokemon's battles since their Trainer joined the cast
Now for the overall Battling Strength of the Rivals / Recurring Characters!
Stephan: 71% (5 out of 7)
Kotetsu: 67% (2 out of 3)
Dawn: 67% (2 out of 3)
Trip: 63% (10 out of 16)
Georgia: 50% (4 out of 8)
Bianca: 30% (3 out of 10)
Burgundy: 0 (0 out of 3)
Trip is missing at least two battles, but his position will be the same regardless.
