    So far 2 of the battles against Trip were lame as hell:

    The 1st one and the last one

    The battle club one was OK since Trip had a good strategy and Ash's pokemon were very weak at that time.

    Trip's battles with Ash except for the third one. Sure he used strategy in the 2nd but it felt like Ash being nerfed in everything was the reason why he lost.
    The 4th one was a load of bull. Two hit KO on a fire type and dodging Fire Pledge? Only to be easily crushed like a noob by the champion and then Ash in the league?
    Stupid Plot Amor.

    Koffing vs Boldore. HOW THE HELL CAN GYRO BALL DEAL POWERFUL DAMAGE TO BOLDORE WHEN KOFFING WAS A SPEED DEMON?!?!?!? The sheer fact it did not get poisoned to make it realistic was an insult to Boldore's mighty defenses. Seriously it could have grabbed Koffing and pulverize it with Rock Smash.

    Couldn't agree more. Not only was Ash defeat obvious, it was a humiliating one. At least when he lost to Harrison in Johto and Tyson in Hoenn Ash and his pokemon put up a bit of a fight. Heracross was there to show how powerful Darkrai was, Swellow, Gible and Torkoal were there to take a beating, and Sceptile and Pikachu were there to soften the blow.
    And that's all there is to it.

    Ash vs. Giovanni in the most recent episode. They're (Bulbapedia) are pushing it to even call it a battle. Pikachu attacked Persian, and Giovanni came in and tole it to counter Pikachu's attack.

    Although the trio battles with Arbok, Seviper, Cacnea, Weezing, etc. are also pretty dull. It always goes the same:

    Jessie: Go, Arbok/Seviper!
    James: Go Vicrtreebel/Cacnea/Carnivine/Weezing!
    James (if Victreebel, Cacnea, or Carnivine) Not me! Them! The twerps!
    Jessie: Arbok/Seviper, Poison Sting!
    Ash: Pikachu, Thunderbolt!
    Trio: [Looks like] Team Rocket's blasting off again/We're blasting off again!

    Metapod vs. metapod, it's a classic.

    The couple of battles where pokemon purposely underbattled to help another pokekmon (The Problem with Paras and that poochyena episode of season six) were pretty lame too.

    Powered up Pikachu VS Wattson

    There was absolutely no need for this kind of Overkill. If Pikachu had actually done this under his own power people would have loved it, but no ...

    I actually felt sorry for Wattson. He's my favorite Hoenn Gym Leader and he got destroyed by HAX.

    Torkoal vs Steelix and Norman's Vigoroth. THE THING IS A FREAKING TANK YET IT GETS ONE HIT KOED AND PIKACHU/GROVYLE BECOMES A BETTER TANK AND SURVIVES XX AMOUNT OF HITS? Cheap.

    Roxie's Gym was CRAP. Belittling Ash's powerful reserve IS NOT A WAY TO MAKE SOMEONE LOOK STRONG!

    Koffing vs Boldore. HOW THE HELL CAN GYRO BALL DEAL POWERFUL DAMAGE TO BOLDORE WHEN KOFFING WAS A SPEED DEMON?!?!?!? The sheer fact it did not get poisoned to make it realistic was an insult to Boldore's mighty defenses. Seriously it could have grabbed Koffing and pulverize it with Rock Smash. SERIOUSLY? Damage it with Clear Smog? Boldore should have laughed at the damage. Even if Koffing had an evilote, its offenses would not harm a powerful Boldore.

    Unfezant vs Koffing was really bad. The bird just got good in speed and endurance yet it falls very fast to a Koffing with lame offensive moves.

    Paplitoad vs Garbodor was a cheap way to showcase Garbodor's cheap overpowered strength and belittle a Pokemon who barely appears in the anime.

    Agreed. Pikachu should have ONE Hit Koed by Manetric rather Torkoal.
    And if it was not for an overpowered Pikachu, Ash's team would not have stood a chance.
    Tailow and Corphish sure they have survived Pikachu's attacks but they would not stand up to Wattson's strategies.
    And Grass Treecko is weak to electricity in the anime. SIGH

    Ash vs Tobias.

    Most of his Pokemon got OHKO'd, they're stronger than that. Ash should have been the one doing the OHKO-ing to Tobias!

    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.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    Oshawott versus Darmanitan as well as what I said earlier.

    He lost for.....no reason whatsoever? The battle itself wasn't very enjoyable either.

    Barry vs Paulina. Was Barry really THAT weak? I mean didn't Barry know his opponent due to being in love with them? You would think he would of known the power he was up against

    Brock VS May. It made me sad that May won. I think Brock deserved to win to be quite honest.

    Brock vs. May is laughably bad in outcome and in voice acting. haha. Well, I'm thankful Bill Rogers and Michele Knotz were stronger in BF as Brock and May than in DP. Still just atrocious though, in all honesty.

    Scraggy vs Throh was too painful to watch.

    Pikachu vs Excadrill was one of the worst. Could they at least make Iris win with a strategy and a challenge? Paplitoad vs Excadrill would have been great to see and have Iris place some strategy into. They just gave it away to Iris without making her even earn it. Pairing a severe overused Pokemon with an average type advantage was a horrible way to end off the battle. Should have ended it off with "AIM FER DUH HOrn!" crap.

    Brock vs May was pretty stupid. Another Give away win battle after some (Brock) places some much effort and strategy into the battle
    Yeah..... I changed my signature....
