Right, my serious hopes are:
Kotetsu didn't withdraw a sixth Pokemon before the match and is disqualified.
The match is a draw and they have a tiebreaker battle the following morning. Samurott vs Palpitoad, where Palpitoad obliterates the ugly sealion.
Now obviously the second thing just isn't going to happen. There's not only too little time, but also the writers of this show just aren't that good.. However, 'scatterbrained' Kotetsu might just be stupid enough to go into a 6v6 with only 5 Pokemon.. I'm holding out hope..
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!
Have Zoroark have some time now.
I will concede that there are Pokemon that deserve a major role more than Lucario (especially Zoroark), but there are also plenty of Pokemon that would be worse to see than Lucario. Let's be honest, we're probably lucky that we haven't had Lucario shoved down our throats over and over by now. It's an incredibly marketable and popular Pokemon, yet in the anime (not counting the movie), it's only had three notable roles. I'm still surprised we didn't see Paul or Tobias with one.

I guess I would prefer Ash losing to Koutetsu than to Virgil. I mean, to me I would much rather see Lucario beat Pikachu than Eevee beat Pikachu. My issue is this probably means that either Koutetsu or Virgil is going to win the Unova league. So we have either someone who exists purely to promote merch...or an idiot akin to every Shounen hero ever. The latter makes more sense to win because...well this is shounen anime...and idiot protagonists usually come out on top.
Wished ash used infernape for this battle, only because a lucario vs infernape battle would be so flippin sweet!
Lol that would be sick if they tied, and then the ref ask if they have any other pokemon they can use, kotetsu pulls out some beastly pokemon, and as ash thinks about who to use, his charizard comes flying down, with charla by its side and wins it for ash
Spoiler:- Game Teams:
I have a pretty good reputation on these forums... Well i mean I could...
Lucario was used because Lucario and Eevee are being promoted with BW 2
Riolu\Lucario is famous because writers made them so. Just like how Oshawott was least favorite among the starters and now it is nearing Piplup's standard. Writers just like to play favorites.
