How is his team better then Virgil's when we haven't even seen Virgil's team full potential(Most of them only used one or two moves, they obviously have more moves, and we haven't seen any in an official battle yet). Plus, Kotetsu has an out of control Hydreigon apparently, I wouldn't want Ash to lose someone who isn't controlling their Pokemon.
Yeah but Kotetsu's gotten this far for a reason. Besides, look at how far Dragonite got in the Junior cup. So don't give me that!
