This episode is finally going to air and be forgotten from my memories. I'll be waiting for the redemption league in three-four years time.
Come on people, don't be so negative ALL THE TIME
Tomorrow is the day ugh I can't wait anymore XD still hoping Ash pulls a top 4. *crossing fingers*
Next week the N Chapter!!
Ash can get Top 4 here and win the World tournament at the end of BW.
Fully expect Ash to lose to whatever his English name is, with the Lucario.
After all he had 5 Pokémon, Ash had 6, most of Ash's Pokémon unfortunately sucked (can't be bashing if it's not what I wanted to happen and true), and so even if Ash somehow beats Lucario and moves on, he still lost in my opinion. You can't win a FULL BATTLE, when one of them forgets to bring a 6th Pokémon, and we all know why what's his name only has 5 Pokémon.
Because Ash wouldn't even stand a remote chance if that guy had six.
But....what can you do.
I really really really do wish Ash would place in the Top 4 again, but i just don't think it's possible at all.
The title has Lucario vs Pikachu in it, we've seen from previews that the writers are glorifying it so much as an intense final battle, Ash puts his hat down (something he's done in every region of his final league battle aside from Hoenn) and on top of that none of Ash's other Pokemon besides Snivy are listed in the VA's.
I hate to say it but it just isn't going to happen.

Ash's Donphan appeared in the episode where his Cyndaquil evolved but Kenta Miyake (Donphan's VA) wasn't listed.
So if we were going to see a full battle between Ash and Virgil, I highly doubt there would be enough time, to even warrant VAs to even speak, it'll probably be a montage after montage, with the final match-up taking the most at about (5 minutes, maybe) with Ash losing.
The best possible scenario that I wouldn't mind playing out is if Ash and Kotetsu tie, (with Lucario tying with Pikachu) and as a result they are both disqualified.
1. Because Ash had no more Pokémon.
2. Kotetsu only brought 5 Pokémon to the match, making it unfair to punish Ash if he were to move forward as a result.
I must say, it would be nice if the writers purposely did all this specifically to make Ash vs Virgil a complete surprise out of the blue.
BUT, it would be quite depressing if Ash's final matchup against Virgil isn't as epic as Lucario vs Pikachu seems to be.
Kinda like sending a Seismitoad vs Snivy for example.
It is retarded the whole 5 pokemon thing but nothing guarantees that he wouldn't make a dumb mistake with his 6th pokemon also, like he did with Ferrorthorn and Swanna.
I guess it's still possible he had 6 Pokémon with him.
But I don't see it, unless Lucario gets recalled, then sends out something to straight up lose to Snivy send out Lucario again to beat Snivy and move onto Pikachu.
I just don't see that happening at all. Unless Ash recalls Snivy, which doesn't seem likely.
I would need Sushi/Dephender or someone else to confirm it though, none confirmed it I believe.
I don't get that logic, I would have 6 Pokémon with me AT all times, unless I'm hatching eggs.
Why deprive yourself with less Pokémon when a situation could arise in which will require you to use your other Pokémon?
It would actually be more stupid, and dumb to think it's a 5 on 5 and only bring 5 Pokémon. At least if you brought 6 thinking it was a 5 on 5, well guess what just use your other Pokémon brought with you, no harm no foul.
