    I'd say it's - Stephen > Trip > Georgia > Bianca > Burgundy in terms of strength.

    Stephan's character development is more dan trip in anime series.he won dat fighting type don battle tournament because it was made to show how strong he is when it comes to strenght.on the other hand trip didnt make dat much appearances n he was shown to be defeated just because they wanted to.he has strength plus strategy...which makes him stronger than stephan.

I realize Dragonite's a pseudo-legendary, but there shouldn't be that sort of difference in power between it and Beartic. Especially sense Beartic has an overwhelming type advantage. None of Beartic's attacks seemed to hurt Dragonite at all, even Ice Beam barely phased it, and it only took one hit from Thunder Punch to subdue it. Tying against Excadrill made it seem good, sense it had a type disadvantage to two of it's attacks but that loss against Dragonite took it down a notch in my opinion. I think Excadrill would be able to beat it now.
    Wait why would Dragonite's battle have anything to do with Excadrill being able to beat Beartic? That doesn't make sense.

    If I have to rank Ash's pokemon it'll be like this:

    1. Pikachu
    2. Leavanny
    3. Pignite
    4. Krokorok
    5. Boldore
    6. Snivy
    7. Oshawott / Scraggy
    9. Unfezant

    But now that Kro9korok evolves in Krookodile and beat Dragonite he'll become powerhouse and go up to 1st place while the rat, the bug and the bacon go down 1 position.

    As for characters strenght I'll say:

    Trip>Ash=Stephen>Cilan>Bianca=Iris>Georgia>>>...>> Burgundy

    I'm not considering Koharu, Suwama or Masaomi because they're not recurring like the other rivals.

    Let's see.
    =========================================
    In terms of Ash's Pokemon. This is how I would rank them.

    1. Krookodile

    Will beat Iris' Dragonite and it's moveset is pretty solid. Crunch, Dig, Stone Edge, and the future (and likely) Dragon Claw. He is reminding me of Sinnoh League-Gliscor.

    2. Pignite

    Gets pretty impressive wins. Only if he can replace Tackle for a fighting-type move though.

    3. Pikachu

    He's starting to get back a bit of DP strength.

    4. Leavanny

    Weak moveset but has been very useful in the few types he's been used. He hasn't been the fall guy yet. Always taking down something before he falls.

    5. Boldore

    Boldore has a sold moveset. Is strong and dependable although sometimes has weird losses.

    6. Oshawott

    He has a bland moveset but is equal on his competency and his failures. Needs to learn a better move other than Tackle.

    7. Snivy

    Bland moveset. She was shown strong in the beginning but now she is shown has frail and couldn't survive one cut from Servine (unless plot hax happens).

    8. Scraggy

    Has gotten pretty strong. Strong moves but still needs to master Focus Blast.

    9. Unfezant

    She's in her final form and she's iffy. She needs more endurance. It seems she tires easily. Her moveset is so bland and weak, although her game move list is bad as well. She should learn a stronger move like Sky Attack or perhaps even heat Wave.

    10. Palpitoad

    Barely used, although he is strong. He can be seen as the weakest link in the group. He did beat Zebstrika but tired too easily. vs Garbodor was sad. Palpitoad should have gotten a win here.
    ======================================
    In terms of Iris' pokemon.

    1. Dragonite

    There is no doubt he is the strongest. They made him too powerful for my tastes. Basically perfect moveset.

    2. Excadrill

    Her starter, its obvious he's strong. Solid moveset.

    3. Emolga

    She is strong but has yet to learn a flying type move.

    4. Axew

    They try to make it suddenly powerful by giving it freakishly strong moves without on-screen training and as last resort moves that it's hard to take this thing seriously. In one episode its a baby but suddenly in some fights its "grown up." It's almost as the writer's can't decide what to do with him.
    ======================================
    Cilan's pokemon

    1. Crustle

    One of the strongest pokemon in the cast, was even sued to make Trip's Serperior look even stronger.


    2. Pansage

    Pansage and Stunfisk are a close match but I say Pansage is the stronger of the two only by a bit.

    3. Stunfisk

    Has an awesome moveset, but most of the times the writers just use it as a joke. It took 70+ episodes until it got it's first win.
    ========================================
    Trip's Pokemon

    It's hard to judge his pokemon as we haven't seen most of them in a long time so...

    1. Serperior

    Basically, it's tied with Dragonite on the most overpowered pokemon in the cast. Beats three fire types and Cilan's Crustle in the tournament. Although i have to question leer in this moveset.

    2. Conkeldurr

    Weakest Pokemon so far. Timburr lost to Oshawott, Gurdurr lost to Dwebble, and Conkeldurr lost to Emboar. This is Paul's Weavile. Keeps losing but is still shown as "strong."
    ==========================================
    Bianca's Pokemon

    1. Emboar

    It's her starter, it beat two gym leaders on its own, lasted the longest vs Elesa, and beat Trip's Conkeldurr and Georgia's Bisharp. Definitely her strongest pokemon.

    2. Escavalier

    For some reason it gives me Excadrill vibes. From the one fight we saw, it seemed pretty strong. Who knows how far it has come since then.

    3. Minccino

    Shown as strong, and it even has Thunderbolt. That's like Pikachu strong now. Although we have yet to see it in battle since the Club Battle.
    =======================================
    Stephan

    1. Sawk
    Definitely one of the strongest pokemon on the main cast. It's wins never felt too forced and Stephan constantly talks about how he and Sawk trained under intense conditions.

    2. Zebstrika
    Haven't seen much of it lately but yeah.
    ========================================
    Georgia

    1. Beartic

    Her starter. It's good but not amazing. Lost to Dragonite plot hax.

    2. Bisharp

    Pretty awesome. OHKO'd a Druddigon.

    3. Vanilluxe

    Have yet to see her battling skills.
    ==========================================
    Burgundy

    1. Dewott

    Her starter, pretty cool moveset. Just needs an extra umph.

    2. Stoutland

    Pretty okay.

    3. Sawsbuck

    Was Pansage's play toy.

    4. Darmanitan

    Battling skills not yet known. Lost to Serperior plot hax.

    ^ Darmanitan way lost worst than Sawsbuck. Why is one loss "plot hax" but not another?

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    Serperior is without a doubt the strongest of them all, I'd say it's easily at drapion's level if not torterra/electivire's level.

    Sawsbuck was clearly overpowered by Cilan's strategy as well as Dewott. One just suffered less due to it being her starter and being better trained.

    Serperior was/will be consistently glorified in the cup. Darmanitan's loss was just so they can showcase how strong Trip was now who then OHKO'd another fire type in the following round. They didn't even give it a chance to show any battle moves

    wait is this in terms of strength? I'm not sure Unfezant is weaker then Oshawott or Scraggs.

    Burgundy constantly receives the short end of the stick.

    She has put up decent fights against Iris and Ash, showing that both her Stoutland and Dewott are strong. But no matter how good a fight she puts up, she will always be screwed over and lose. Especially vs. Trip, her Darmanitan didn't do anything basically. She has a cool, balanced team with a lot of potential but the writers need to take her more serious in order for her to win anything at all.

    I'd rank her team like this:
    1. Dewott
    2. Stoutland
    3. Sawsbuck/Darmanitan


    As for Ash's team, I'd rank it like this when it comes to strength and potential:
    1. Pignite
    2. Pikachu
    3. Leavanny
    4. Krookodile
    5. Snivy
    6. Palpitoad
    7. Boldore
    8. Unfezant
    9. Oshawott
    10. Scraggy

    Iris:
    1. Dragonite
    2. Excadrill
    3. Axew
    4. Emolga

    Cilan:
    1. Crustle
    2. Pansage
    3. Stunfisk, it's still really strong though

    Overall I'd consider Cilan's team to be the most consistent when it comes to (average) strength. All of his pokémon are well trained. Iris's team needs the most work.
    So it'd be like:
    1. Cilan
    2. Ash
    3. Iris

    with rivals it'd be like this (average team's strength):
    1. Cilan
    2. Ash
    3. Trip
    4. Stephan
    5. Georgia
    6. Iris
    7. Burgundy
    8. Bianca

    I disagree with most of the posts on this thread. Personally i could see Stephan beating Trip. The fight sawk put up is more impressive than any of Trips pokemon i could see it beating serperior and the rest of trip's team is a joke except for frillish which hasnt got any sceen time sice the 5v5 battle.

    This is based on overall performance not sceen time or the last battle.

    Ash
    1. Krookadile
    2. Pignite
    3. Pickachu
    4. Leavanny
    5. Snivy
    6. Boldore
    7. Palpitoad
    8. Unfezant
    9/10. Oshawott/Scraggy (Don't rule this guy out yet, Scraggy could very well be the unova leagues Gible or Kingler)

    Stephan
    1. Sawk (thing's a beast)
    2. Zebstrika (powerful likkle horsey)

    Bianca
    1. Emboar
    2. Escavalier
    3. Mincinno

    Trip
    1. Serperior
    2. Frillish
    3. Conkeldurr
    4. Tranquill
    5. Lampent
    6. Vanillite

    Georgia

    1. Beartic
    2. Bisharp
    3. Vanilluxe

    Cilan

    1. Crustle (arguably the strongest pokemon is best wishes saga)
    2. Pansage
    3. Stunfisk

    Iris
    1.Dragonite
    2.Excadrill
    3.Emolga
    4.Stunifsk

    Burgundy

    1. Dewott
    2. Stoutland
    3. Darmanitan (plot device, i guarantee you if the prize wasnt alder he would have taken serperior
    4. Sawsbuck (joke of a pokemon)

    Me neither, but those two are more trained than the bird, at least on-screen.

    I don't know, Unfezant is pretty terrible. At least Oshawott and Scraggy can actually, you know, defeat their opponents.

    I thought that Iris starter is Axew,not another Stunfisk.

    But for strength of main character I think:

    Ash1 Krokodile
    2. Pikachu
    3 Pignite
    4 Snivy
    5 Oshawott
    6 Leavanny
    7 Palpitoad
    8 Boldore
    9 Unfezant
    10 Scraggy
    4-8th place. I think that's very even

    Iris:
    Sp. Dragonite
    1 Excadrill
    2 Emolga
    3 Axew
    Dragonite leaves in other league

    Cilan.
    1 Crustle
    2. Pansage
    3 Stunfisk (Finally a win)

    Iris:

    I think Stephan has been shown better then Trip. One Serperior does not a strong rival make.

    You do know Stephan has two pokemon and only one of them can be called strong, right? Where's Kotetsu?

    Too bad he hasn't.

    One Sawk does not a strong rival make, and Trip has 5 more pokemon other than Serperior.

    Nope. Have you seen her battles? She usually lasts about 30 seconds. Burgundy doesn't lose that quickly.

    Georgia put up decent fights against Ash and Bianca and has actually beaten Iris. Burgundy hasn't won anything on screen

    Ash, I'll give you. Bianca, no. Bianca pummeled her Bisharp in one hit.

    Yeah, on screen. But It's obvious that she beat Chili. Just because it was off screen doesn't stop it from being a victory.

    Really I could of sworn the fight lasted longer. But she still has more wins then Burgundy and has proven herself. Burgundy has never been a challange to anyone.

    I prefer Burgundy over Georgia as a character but everything points to Georgia being stronger
