    Default How long until a Female Trainer wins the league?

    So far the games have had 2 female champions, but there's yet to be a female winner of the league. A few Female trainers have come close but only one has made it to the final round(Assunta most likely made it in the Kanto league), but none of them have won it. Maybe if Ash makes it to the Finals in Gen 6 he will be beaten by a Female Trainer.

    I never noticed this.

    You know, this reminds me, why not make Iris the champion? I mean, for once, it'd be nice to have someone in group actually win a title like champion of whatever tournament they enter.

    She's barely ready to be a gym leader yet, the story line for Iris in the anime seems to be pre BW1 in terms of game continuity.

    If it happens I feel it'll happen long after I stopped watching the anime, so 5-10 years from now.

    They already made her exceptional for a beginner. It wouldn't be fun to have a character who couldn't grow much from what she was already.

    Well it took 5 gens for a female professor for goodness sakes. Cynthia was so popular that she kept coming back.

    But I still find it amusing Ash never had an actual competent female rival in the whole show. Its like Bianca was made to be as ditzy as possible so nobody took her seriously.

    Well, we had the first Female Champion in gen 4, gen 5 gave us the first female Professor. Maybe next Gen they'll give us a female League winner in the anime. But i'm more hoping for a female Antagonist

    Well, honestly, neither of the two female Johto "Rivals" really qualified as them, more as recurring characters.

    Hum, maybe, but she didn't really collect bdges did she? (unlike the other rival, but she only appeared in 2 or 3 eps as a league rival.. so yeah)

    What are you talking about? Virgil is obviously a girl. How else would "he" be so pretty? :U

    Well.....I always assumed that contests were introduced into the show as what (the best) female trainers would commit themselves to.

    Who won the Kanto and Johto leagues that Ash competed in anyway?

    Professor Ivy didn't give starter pokemon to new trainers, but she was still a professor.

    And she had huge knockers.

    Anyway does it really matter? We've only had 5 leagues, which isn't even a high number if you think about it. Or maybe the writers don't want Ash losing the competition to a girl. Yes, I just brought sexism into this.

    Why exactly does it matter if a female or male trainer wins the league? If the best happens to be a male or female then in the end it shouldn't matter. Pointless thread.

    Does it matter if a female wins the league or not? The important thing is that Ash won't be winning one anytime soon so it really shouldn't matter.

    I'd like a female league winner for once, and I'm sure one will come eventually. The wait for a female champion and regional professor may have been long but it still happened.

    Make that female companion compete with ash to get the badges (After she stops being in denial about liking battling /killed) and possibly have her win.

    How long till Ash wins the league?
    Seriously though, only way I could see this is if Ash gets an actual serious girl rival {Which I hope happens soon}

    Katherine would've made a good Rival, and she was close to being a League Winner.

    Unless the development given to her on the show had been different from the start?
    I don't see any possible way they could make " Iris Who's Done Everything Ash Couldn't " interesting for three years.

    I don't find anything wrong with the way she's being written currently. She comes off as more experienced then Ash and is a believable candidate for her future role. It's just enough without being outrageous in my opinion.
