It really bugs me, since the writers focus on their main fanbase more then they do with us, so that probably explains why the starters got so much screentime.

    It really bugs me, evolution is a sign that Ash is progressing as a trainer, this especially prevalent in DP and for some reason they made him regress.

    Oddly enough, Chimchar's and Turtwig's evolution episodes received relatively great ratings (each got 6's)

    Why exactly can't Ash get this little guy?

    How does the rating system over there even work?

    Surely that's a sign that they need to step up their game? Heck they could just make a region where Ash competes for the badges with not only his new 'six member' team, but his older reserves too in some really difficult battles, evolving some oldies and some newbies. Then make a great league like they actually could've done this time, with Ash actually progressing. Involve a couple of Single/Double/Tag battle tournaments, along with a well maintained villain arc AND hold onto Team Rocket, while having a few more past cameo's!

    They could do it and I'm 100% sure it'd boost their ratings! They have 3+ years worth of episodes and what do they do? Spaff it away on Axew getting lost..

    I'll have to repeat it, but that's because Gen IV was the best both Anime-wise and Gaming/Spin-off Gaming-wise. Underrated on all the forums, but the sales and other numbers say otherwise than the Internet.

    It's simple. They just do a comparison between the amount of people watching the episode compared to the total population in Japan. People watching / pop. of Japan * 100 = % of people watching.

    Like I said, their main fanbase likes the cute Pokemon stuff.

    But it was too long of a anime

    To further support my theory of Ash beating Kotetsu...

    Think. Why would the writers give the fight two episodes? They surely know that it would be anti-climatic for Ash's hard work in the battle to end up badly for him. The previous fight which DID end with Ash losing after two episodes was against Paul after Candice's Gym Battle, but that was just a normal fight in the wild, which didn't hold as much importance as a league battle.

    I predict that this will turn out like the battle against Gary: two of the most popular Pokemon fight each other to death like Charizard VS. Blastoise.

    Wait what, hard work? You do realize that Ash barely trained in this saga, right? He doesn't deserve praise for something he didn't do. Besides, the writers love anti-climactic endings. We got that during the last League and that's what we're probably going to get here.

    I think that Ash will win. Maybe the writer will give Ash a break of once

    Blame BW for making Sinnoh have a bad last battle.

    Hate to say this, but I guess you're right on that.

    But I'm calling it. Two episodes for a single battle should settle things between Ash and Failtetsu.

    I can see what you're saying, but it's already happened twice now against Harrison in Johto and Tyson in Hoenn. This will mark the third, unless he does happen to win which seems very unlikely.

    Ash vs Tobias/Takuto (As i prefer to call him that) was a great battle. Even if people will call him an undeveloped character, he was still awesome to me. Why? Mysterious, and thanks to him we saw how Ash improved to even beat 2 Legendaries by anime standards.

    The battle with him also used a great soundtrack, especially the part when Pikachu was constantly thunderbolting Latios. BW lacks a good soundtrack, i don't get why didn't they start reusing old BGMs with Season 2.

    There's a huge difference between the two though, Ash is the main character, we're following his adventures, Ash has been through 5 regions and 2 side quests. Kotetsu has been shown beating Marlon in a mediocre-ly( Idk if that's a word haha) written battle. That is all that Kotetsu has before the league, and even then...he beat Bianca and a CotD. That's it. And it may not be confirmed, but it's looking like that Ash losing or having a rushed last battle if the League is over in this episode

    I didn't mean he'd get mad at Kotetsu. If I did worse than before I'd get mad at myself and the situation. That is what I mean. Ash wasn't mad or crying because of Ritchie in the Indigo League. He was upset that he lost, which I would think is how he would react to regressing. But Ash doesn't seem to be the same exact character that has grown through OS, AG, and DP

    I can partially agree with that.. Heracross, Sceptile, Gible and Pikachu fought valiantly and made it an enjoyable battle. However I was let down by Torkoal and Swellow's defeats. They were actually useless and that upset me a little. Torkoal could've done so much better, considering he's stood up to a Registeel and Swellow could've easily switched places with Glalie, who would've had a nice type advantage against Latios.. They could've allowed Ash to lose four Pokemon while taking out Darkrai and Latios, switching out Gible after Draco Meteor missed Darkrai, to keep it alive. Then sent it out again against a Lucario before the fully charged Pikachu came in to either tie with it or finish it off and go on to lose quickly to Entei or something..

    Then we would'nt have to sit through it now in the wrong league..

    Minus Gible and Heracross (who were both chosen because of their Fighting moves and Heracross's typing) all the Pokemon Ash chose had all fought legendary Pokemon. Sceptile and Swellow did well against Deoxy's in that Ranger episode. Not sure why Swellow didn't do well though

    Makes perfect sense. All they needed was one more episode!

    Exactly! Swellow never sucked like that before. When has it ever gone down in one hit(not counting Taillow)

    Probably to glorify Latios which was used to glorify Pikachu

    All these friendly rivals are making Ash content with failure. He needs a rival who tells him he's pathetic every once in a while to spur him on to do better ;- *sigh* how I miss paul... ;(

    So...

    Who thinks Ash will win this and have a decent battle against Virgil?
