The fact that Kotetsu's Riolu will evolve in the anime didn't surprise me at all since Kotetsu's future Lucario is already featured in the special PWT download.
Can't wait to see how the Lucario vs Pikachu battle will turn out.
WARNING: Crossing Kyurem's gate of ice and then rage quitting while losing to Kyurem may result in the Kyurem eating you at night.
Bianca didn't battle Ash, either.-Virgil is not battling Ash.
In fact, Bianca never battled Ash in an official Tournament despite being one of his Rivals.
Everybody expected Virgil to battle Ash, but now people are annoyed because Virgil was brought in and hyped up only to not battle Ash.
p.s, Bianca battled Ash and lost to him first time. She's the first proper rival to make Ash actually seem 10x stronger than her, he had nothing to prove unlike an opponent such as let's say, Trip.
So me get this straight, they put Virgil in the league purely to ***** out Eevee?? Seriously he doesn't even battle Ash?? Wow.
And people were telling me they would be pissed if a rookie beat Ash, well congrats 1 did -_-.
At least the rat will finally get a good beating.
The coolest, cutest signature is coming soon...

They've worked it out so that everyone except Pikachu gets to appear in ONE battle.. and they aren't all guaranteed wins.. AND Scraggy's was mostly offscreen! That's the worst thing!
Pikachu - Trip, Kotetsu
Unfezant - Kotetsu
Oshawott - Kotetsu
Pignite - Kotetsu
Snivy - Kotetsu
Scraggy - Random guys Darumakka
Leavanny - Stephan
Palpitoad - Stephan
Boldore - Kotetsu
Krookodile - Stephan
Plus the fact he's regressing! Why did they have to start the N saga so soon anyway? Simple answer? They didn't! They've still got pretty much a years worth (or more!) of episodes to cover before Gen 6 is even likely to be released.. They could've started a month later, written the league well, made Ash either stay in Top 4 or progress and it would've been just fine..
Kingler, my friend. No matter what, you will always remain my favourite Water type. You shouldn't have missed out on the Sinnoh League and I look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the near future.
There you are, I see you in the back there!
Is this some kind of joke? Good god this league.. you know what whatever at least the N is coming up shortly after.
I hate Virgil but what was the point of even introducing him? Man this was just one over glorified Don Battle.

1) First time he has done worse in the current regional league than in a league from a previous region. This is one of the few patterns heavily discussed in the fandom that the writers have gone out of their way to have the supporting characters themselves mention at the end of every league prior to this one. Brock at the end johto and sinnoh leagues mentioned ash placing in the top 8/4 for the first time, while max at the end of the hoenn league mentioned that Ash didn't place higher in that league than he did in the johto league.
2) This would be Ash's first regional league loss to a trainer with an obvious character flaw that hinders them in battle. Ritchie, Harrison, Tyson, and Tobias were all flawless trainers in terms of their character. Kotetsu has on multiple occasions been clueless on some of the most basic things.
3) This is Ash's first battle in general where he loses as a direct result of a plot device on the side of his opponent. In fandom terms, if Ash and Kotetsu were to switch places, you guys would probably call Ash's win to be DEM-induced.
I'm speculating that Ash beats Kotetsu, but loses to virgil in a similar manner to how ritchie lost to the chick with the ivysaur, or even harrison losing to the rhyhorn trainer. All they would need to show is the final matchup, which doesn't even need to be longer than 2 minutes.
Remember that Ash is not using oaked reserves here. Ash's pokemon on hand have had little if any development battlewise at this point. They don't need to give their losses much screentime to justify them. A simple minute of Vaporeon Hydropumping Pignite is more than sufficient.
the point of introducing Virgil was to promote the eeveelutions, not to win the league.
