I'm ok with it so long as a character doesn't win the whole thing with a disobedient pokemon
And as An00bis said, the officials do have a right to correct a Trainer on their battling style because it's they're job. Especially when a pseudo-legendary is going on a rampage and putting innocent spectators in danger. Why would they put them in danger in order to get Iris to see the lack of bond between her and Dragonite?
You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!
I think you just should not be allowed to register pokemon that you clearly know to be disobidient.
Dragonite should have been disqualified the minute he started on his rampage.
Pokemon that go on a rampage should be banned. It is the trainer's job to make sure their pokemon don't go on a rampage and if they can't manage that it means they are not ready for the big tournaments. If a pokemon causes serious injury it beats the purpose of pokemon battles which is competition in a safe environment, remember the first pokemon movie dealt with what its like when pokemon battle beyond the need of friendly competition. It's only because the writers don't want to show the consquences of a disobdient pokemon that no one has been seriuosly injured.
To me no, you may never know what will happen like destroying the bleachers!

It's practical to ban unruly Pokemon. They could do a lot of damage, or they could hold up the games. Even if Ash is the main character, the league shouldn't give him hours to convince Charizard to battle. The league has other battles scheduled, other trainers need a chance to battle, and TV networks like action. (I'm betting the league lots of money by airing the matches on TV. )

Well, since i'm only familiar with Ash & Charizard, I would say that a disobedient pokemon should be automatically disqualified if it is shown that that it doesn't respond to any of it's trainer's commands..
