I think his Hydreigon will be like Paul's Drapion, but his final Pokemon will be Samurott(PLEASE) or Riolu/Lucario.

As for the Ritchie-vibe, that's exactly what Kotetsu was made after.. An Ash-foil, made to reflect Ash's character in almost the same way with just a small twist. The disobedient dragon in the Top16 is just the iceing one the cake..
Ritchie in the Top16:
- Sparky: Best marketable pokemon from the first generation
- Zippo: Starter pokemon, of which Ash had the fully evolved form.
Kotetsu in the top16:
- Riolu: A pokemon that's arguably one of the top2 best marketable from Sinnoh, the other being Piplup.
- Samurott: Starter pokemon, of which Ash has the base stage.
Ritchie's Butterfree is forgetable, but I wouldn't be surprised if Kotetsu has something similar: A pokemon that Ash at one point had, say a Lapras or something.. Kotetsu's Hydreigon is a throwback to Ash's Charizard being disobedient..
1. Unfezant: Fully evolved.
2. Pignite: Evolved once.
3. Leavanny: Fully evolved.
4. Palpitoad: Stage 1 and might fully evolve against Stephan.
5. Boldore: Evolved once, and might evolve again judging by the calender.
6. Krookodile: Fully evolved.
1. Pikachu: Debatable, but for the sake of argument, lets not.
Ash has a team of evolved pokemon, but only 2/3rd of a team that's unevolved, therefore, your statement is false.
Here's to hoping that Ash goes through a good chunk of his team fast and then makes Kotetsu sweat and use Hydreigon and has to use three to take it down: Pikachu, Pignite, Boldore/Gigalith
Vs. Trip: Pikachu
Vs. Stephan: Palpitoad, Leavanny, Krookodile
Vs. Kotetsu: Pikachu, Unfezant, Pignite, Palpitoad, Leavanny, Boldore
Vs. Virgil: Unfezant, Oshawott, Pignite, Snivy, Scraggy, Krookodile
Vs. League rival: Pikachu, Unfezant, Snivy, Scraggy, Gigalith, Krookodile?
RANK UP: I'm Black and White, for now! I'm going to turn Grey tomorrow!
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
The prospect of Riolu evolving makes me think Satoshi may lose to Kotetsu, hope not, I don't dislike Kotetsu but I don't want Satoshi to lose in this round.
Looks like a mod decided for each episode to get a thread, guess this wont be closed then.
So what we know, assuming nothing is wrong:
Ash vs Kotetsu is round 4(Not counting Preliminary as a numbered round), and is the start of full battles.
Ash is using Pignite and most likely Pikachu, vs Hydreigon and Rilou who is probably going to evolve. Still four Pokemon for each to be known. Likely enough Kotetsu will use the Pokemon we already know he has so Samurott and Ferrothorn, I'm hoping he used Gigalith and Arcanine as well. As for Ash, depending on what happens before the battle I'd like to see Boldore, Krookodile, Scraggy, and Unfezant.
I'm certain Ash will beat Kotetsu.
Why is Riolu "probably going to evolve" ?
No one really knows for sure if he will lose here or not, so why not wait for more info? I hate when people do that and then it ends up being something else. It would make more sense for Ash to lose here because Kotetsu's team is better than Virgil's.
Ash will defeat Koet with Osha evolving and learning an ice type move so he can defeat Hydregion!
My Final B2-normal mode- team:
Well at least we know how far Ash will succeed in the league; this battle with Kotetsu sounds interesting already. Especially with a possible evolution and a Hydreigon. I bet Iris will idolize it as if it were her own.
I assume no Ash VS Bianca? That's too bad; but then again Ash didn't battle Barry in the last league. (Pointing this out since Barry/Bianca both have similarities)
This is not the Virgil thread! I love the eeveeloutions! and Ash reaching the Top 4 with an average team is nothing better. I would love for Ash to reach the Top 4,2 or even win this. for me his adventure is getting bland and we need fresh blood. either way it will be interesting to see how it finishes.
Lucario vs Dewott or Servine in the final stage of this battle would be my Best Wishes!
My Final B2-normal mode- team:
Since Riolu and Lucario are unmarketable and forgettable Pokémon, I hope it's evolution is swept under the rug, just have it beat the Pokémon it's having trouble with (Scraggy/Scrafty), LOL) evolve it, and beat the Pokémon, and then have some other Pokémon beat Lucario's rear end, and have Kotetsu send out Hydreigon, sounds good to me.
Some of you need to look at this before you comment on what a Pokemon should learn. Some of you are okay but some of you need to look at this: http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-bw/ This is the attackdex, it is your friend.
A. Dragonite wasn't listening, but he is a great example of the Blood Knight trope; looks for fights and loves to win, I don't think that is the best example because unlike alot of examples of Pokemon not listening to their trainer, we know that Dragonite has this great competative spirit (Yeah okay the others like the win too but:
1. Charizard was a lazy jerk who only battled when interested. Unlike Dragonite, he would rather sit and nap than battle.
2. Mamoswine didn't feel he needed to prove himself to Dawn and would often just turn away without any incentive
3. Excadrill was actually terrified to lose infront of his trainer again
B. Hydreigon's by nature are usually killing machines lol. There is a BIG difference between the other 4 and a Hydreigon that doesn't listen. It's like comparing a cat to a rapid dog. I mean remember what happen to the Hydreigon Iris has to calm down a couple episodes back? That's a more benign specimen of Hydreigon, this is probably going to be a more traditional version.
Out of control Dragon? Does Krookodile need to Dragon Claw a dragon again?
