I have no idea why, but I feel like Ash is going easy on him. If he gave the effort he gave against Trip, that Hydreigon wouldn't be able to get past Oshawott, at the very least.
I don't know why but yesterday I had this image of Ash winning the match cause Cameron didn't bring a 6th Pokemon, and then Cameron starts sulking like a baby which distracts Ash in his rushed match against Virgil, thus costing him the league. Again, not really predicting this. It's just a thought that popped into my head. No clue why.
I want ash to win, within say 7 minutes of this episode, and see the next matchups shown, with ash vs Katherine, then little scraggamuffin/snivy could take out gothita, piggy could take out mandibuzz, but apart from those, ash gets wrecked by Katherine, and she soon continues to kill Virgil in the final
Spoiler:- Game Teams:
I have a pretty good reputation on these forums... Well i mean I could...
Yeah but to troll Ash even more Cameron can copy Ash's Electro Iron Tail strategy with Aura Sphere and Force Palm or he could use Copycat to knock Pikachu out with Electro Ball.
Last time I checked, this isn't a Mystery Dungeon anime.
This was easily the weakest league in the history of the show. I feel as if I should be excited for all of the upcoming stuff. Team Plasma and Cheren are appearing like I wanted them to since this saga begun, but this awful, awful League has seriously lowered my expectations.
If I didn't know better I would think this was the Friendship Hour starring Ash, Bianca, Stephan and Cameron. The atmosphere for this league is too friendly and doesn't feel intense or like they are competing in the biggest tournament in the region. With all the other leagues you could tell we were in the Pokemon League, there was suspense and a dramatic feeling to it. The beginning of the league and Ash vs Stephan had that feeling to a degree but it just doesn't feel like this is the tournament we were waiting 2 years for.
