But I do have to agree with Joltik-Kid. While gen 5 brought a lot of exciting and creative stuff into this franchise, the anime didn't handle it as well. I love the fact that they experimented with many new things, but some stuff just didn't work out. :/
If Ash were to lose, then people would go nuts.
and some people here like luthor apparently believe it's possible...and it very well could be even if it's unlikely.
I want Virgil to win just to prove you don't need a team crammed with multiple massive pokemon to make beating ash believable. After all ash's own motto is size<skill so why cant he lose to things that are small but pack a punch?
I'd think it'll be really bad if Ash lost the first round. Then what would he do after, what everyone else battle, wishing that was him or something?
@Pokemanic, yes, there are no levels and for Arceus sake, best not. Because the dead horse of episode one of BW1. But if look back at Johto and Casey's debut, a overpowered Ash is not cool.

There are no levels in the anime, it explains why Pikachu loses to Elekid's after beating Regice's, because Ash is not strategizing properly
Or Trip will continue to be the rival onto the next series basically its kind of like Gary.
My Pokémon Sun & Moon Shiny List
Well since Trip is going down first( Great Job breaking it Writers) the remaining four will probably be faced in order of difficulty.I'll refrain from holding judgment on Virgil
Bianca-Mincinno-Weak pokemon thats used for comedy, Escavilier, Strong but nowhere near Crustle's level. Emboar, powerful and can use unorthodox strategies, but ultimately fell to sawk. She ranks 3rd
Stephan-Zebstrika, While it did lose to wotter, it made up for it by trashing Mincinno, Sawk swept the Clubsplosion, inclduing Said emboar and a very powerful throh, plus Steohan has a crapton of proteins. He ranks 2nd.
Kotetsu- Riolu, unkown but if it got a spot on the poster next to things like Serperior and Pikachu it can't be a slouch, Ferrothorn took out jellicent with one thunderbolt which is quite impressive when you look at the stats and Samurott just destroyed Marlon's Mantine one of the strongest Gym leaders in Unova. He ranks 1st out of the 3.
