I suppose Ash losing to the strongest Magikarp in DP.
THAT one was epic lol
My choice isn't a complete battle, but a part of a batlle.
When Ash faced Tobias in the Sinnoh League. Heracross was taken out, and ash sends out torkoal.
Who is promptly KO'ed by it.
Ash had infernape, charizard, and even quilava, but he used crybaby torkoal. Don't get me wrong, torkoal is my favorite fire type. But Ash's was soooo pathetic. And now they tell me is KO'ed by a dark pulse, when in Hoenn it survived sinking to the bottom of the ocean? Also, his torkoal defeated a steelix and almost tied with registeel.
Ash's torkoal was shown in the past to be weak, but not so weak that a single move could take it out, even from a legendary.
And that torkoal could have avoided the hit. We've all seen it jump straight up 10 feet to use body slam. Or it could have switched to overheat, which would have countered the move.
Sorry for the rant, but this is a pet peeve of mine.
I don't know if we are going to see primeage ever again. Its been a long time. It would have been nice if he did evolve gible, but I think one of two things will happen to gible
A: Traded to Iris
B: We don't see him for 3 years, then he's brought back evolved for a league battle(I'm looking at you cyndaquil)
Gible upsets me a little in this battle. Ash practically just caught it, and it lasts longer against darkrai then torkoal did.
I think Ash's sceptile is definetly in his elite. It's taken one 3 legendaries by now (darkrai, regirock, and deoxys) and regularly defeates pokemon it has disadvantages against. Ex: Flannery's slugma and the scixor that terrorized a town.
But, to get back on track, I think there is a battle that everyone agrees was messed up. I think it was one of the very first battles pikachu had after tieng with latios. I'm sure you've guessed it by now, but here it is.
Ash's pikachu ties with latios, but looses to a lv 14 sansoak. Its stuff like this that made me stop watching years ago.
Oshawott versus Tranquill.
Metapod vs. Metapod.
yes, I went there. :P

At least both sides got to do something in that battle.
Ash 4th Unova gym battle *facepalms*. If not for Palpitoad, it would be the WORST gym EVER!!!
The gym wasn't that bad, and I don't see how Palpitoad saved it from being the worst...
Lake Acuity nothing more than a ploy to make Paul look good at the expense of Ash and gave him a "standard " fanon team which even now gives people reason to discredit Ash's league victory.
All of trip's fights in the world tourney count.
Pretty much every battle in BW and BW2 so far except for Ash vs Clay. Also the ones where Pikachu wins by knocking out a rock or ground type with an electric attack.

My least favourite battle is Ash vs. Tobias. Ash losing is fine, but Tobias's legendary Pokemon just felt really cheap. Ash should've lost with a good, tense battle, and not against someone like Tobias... I don't think trainers in the anime should have legendaries.

"Lame" is such a suggestive term, I'm not entirely sure how to quantify it with examples.
If "Lame" were to mean "worst" then I could give some examples. But just straight up "lame" I couldn't think of any battles that were "lame" since "lame" has a different connotation to straight up "badly written" battles. "Lame" has more of an emotional tether than simply "badly written" battles. So I really can't think of anything that was simply "lame."
But let's go with the worst badly written battle ever.
In Unova- The honor goes to Ash vs Elesa, like Robert said the only saving grace of this battle was Palpitoad vs Zebstrika. There are so many idiotic badly written things about this episode, it was very intolerable to watch. Not only does Ash conveniently become out of character, just to overglorify Pikachu, is unacceptable. They really did address the whole "I use Pikachu too much" and then somehow because Ash chooses not to use Pikachu, he becomes completely idiotic and stupid, to drive in the fact that Ash should use Pikachu too "much" my god, what the hell writers. Do really think anyone with an average IQ is going to fall for that. Seriously only stupid people would ever fall for that. Thanks for trying to insult my intelligence why shoving Pikachu down my throat. It would've been so much better if Ash was going to use the Club Battle choices from the get go. None of this "OH GOD WHO DO I CHOOSE" B.S. that I had to watch. As much as I dislike the Roxie battle, it was leagues better than this B.S. battle.
Overall- Ash vs Ritchie in the Indigo League. It is quite clear to anyone who was paying attention that Ash was superior to Ritchie in every way. At least Ash's battle with Elesa actually looked like a battle, unlike this garbage, it was completely and utterly rushed, thanks Team Rocket, your B.S. interference was completely unnecessary. No one gave any commands to attack at least not from Ash (I guess to save time because of whole TR interference B.S.), it was completely rushed, Squirtle lost because of Butterfree's sleep powder, and Ash had to "resort" to using Charizard (because apparently it was his only viable Pokémon, thanks Team Rocket), and Charizard refused to battle, all of this just so Ash could lose.
If Ritchie was supposed to beat Ash, why did they have to write in such a way that if the battle was even remotely better written, Ash would have to win because he was superior to Ritchie. Why couldn't Ritchie just pull out a win, because Ritchie was slightly better in the one instance. Sure I know Ritchie was a horrible character, and Ash was superior in every single way possible, but did you "writers" have to reflect that opinion in the way the battle was written, because it was god awful, my least favorite battle, because at least every other "lame" "badly written" battle at least resembles a Pokémon battle. This resembled some horrible badly written free for all, and the trainers don't even exist.
The worst part is Ritchie wanted a good battle with Ash, it's sad that he was written to like the battle, because it was hardly a good battle.
Ash vs Paul in the Sinnoh League.
Boring and predictable.
e: Seriously, now, I'd have to say Ash vs Ritchie. That battle was pretty bad.

imo that battle with infernape and electivire was pretty nice i could've imagined if paul beated ash ( because ash losses alot ) and paul gets knocked off against Tobias.
