    I only liked Ash vs Stephan. Ash vs Cameron was a complete joke. This was way too rushed. Sorry but I liked the other leagues better. Even Kanto.
    Ash's team right now

    To be fair Ash vs Kotetsu wasn't really more rushed than any other full battle in the anime that wasn't against Paul. I'd say Gary's and Harrison's battles especially had faster ko's. There were just some stupid decisions here like giving Kotetsu 5 Pokemon.

And they probably didn't even check any data. Kenyan has seen Ash's Palpitoad and Ash did his own little adjustment in teaching Krookodile Aerial Ace knowing about Sawk.

    And no, just one little Fire Punch would suffice for a Snorlax. Not sure if it can even learn 4 Fire moves, maybe. Not that those face Ferrothorns anyway these days. Waay too many Fighting moves being thrown around in OU.
    What Stephan did was the equivalent of a snorlax packing 4 fire moves on the off chance that your opponent has ferrothron. As such the blatant exact counter set made it impossible for me to enjoy that portion of the battle. I usually skipnover it,

    It's too bad that such a meaningless thing kills one's enjoyment for something as simple as this but to each his own. Stephan took the high risk high reward route banking on Ash bringing Mofotoad and it worked out for him. And again, Double Edge and Giga Impact are so similar that they could've just had him order Double Edge again and have that cause Mofo to fly, Mud shot and double Ko but they just threw in one more different move for the hell of it I guess, lol.

    If you enjoy obviously rigged battles with psychic countering then more power to you. But I can't rank it higher than ash vs kotetsu because of it.

    I agree, Kenyan's methods were extreme but he obviously had a strategy and counter in-mind when he faced off against Waruvial/Gamagaru. Zeburaika would have been in a pickle fighting Pokemon with Ground-type characteristics. Kenyan having his Zeburaika not have any Electric moves makes perfect sense for someone like him, he's energetic and extreme when it comes to his battles and training, it's natural he'd go all gung-ho on his moves. Satoshi, being Satoshi, brought his Gamagaru knowing Kenyan would be using that zebra and it worked when he was facing off against Kamitsure's.

    Rigged? Psychic? Having a counter like that set up against a person you know very well isn't "psychic" at all. And again, it made little to no difference that he had 4 Normal moves instead of 3 or even 2 in this scenario. All he had to use were Facade and either D-Edge or Giga Impact. They just threw in 4 for a little variety in lines or something. And I suppose it's more fun to look at 4 different moves. Hey, it's an actual animation effort, how 'bout that?

    Honestly, I think most of the problems I had with the league were just the result of the problems Best Wishes has had all along. The lack of identity, no real feeling of achievement in winning the badges, fairly bland relationships with rivals, essentially losing Ash's journey. They did a lot to try and make things feel interesting and dynamic with having the main rival battle first, having returning COTDs featured prominently, having a big evolution and popular Pokemon like the Eevee-lutions competing, but ultimately the battles remained around the same quality as most of Best Wishes, generally pretty underwhelming.

    As I've said, Ash vs. Stephan is far and away my favorite battle in Best Wishes. It not only made both trainers and their Pokemon all look strong, but it made them look like they were really taking this tournament seriously.

    I was referring to the league being rushed not that battle. Either way I didn't like that. And Unzefant not landing even 1 hit on riolu?

    Truth is, the League wasn't rushed. The writers chose for the Unova League to last 6 episode. If they really wanted to make it longer, they would have edited Episode N to be more linear, or removed the fillers. They did neither.

    This thread is still opened after all this time?

    The only thing I didn't like about this league was that I felt Trip and Bianca got the short end of the stick when they could have been done better. Atleast as good as Kotetsu was. What I did like was Bianca not winning the league or Ash not battling Virgil and losing to him.

    My ideal battle ever!

    What I liked was Virgil didn't beat Ash. I also liked that Kotetsu's Riolu evolved

    I wasn't trying to joke, I never really paid any attention to how his name was spelled, so I just picked one version of it and typed.

    I thought the matches were good. Even the Bianca vs Cameron match. I didn't like the idea of it happening so soon, but it was a really fun match!

    Plus I liked Virgil, because he was a really respectable trainer with a really unique Eevee.

    Well, the decision to use Pikachu two times for the match or for them to make the final battle with pokemon we've seen before, might have also been a stupid decision as well.

    But overall, I just liked that Ash and Trip had their battle. I was for certain that he would have been knocked out of the league by someone else due to what has been happening to him before.

    My ideal battle ever!
