I chose Ritchie.
Cameron is a close second, the thing is no matter how messed up Cameron's battle was, it still resembled a battle.
With Ash not commanding his Pokemon, and the horrible ways to lose a battle (outside of the legitimate Charizard disobedience) this one wasn't even close to a battle.
People are choosing Cameron because it happened now of all times.
Had something like Ritchie happened but in full battle terms happened now at this time, people would be more enraged.
Had the battle with Cameron happened at the Indigo league exactly, then no one would really care, it might be bad, but it might actually be 2nd or 3rd.
The battle with Ritchie will always be the worst battle ever in my opinion. If they could do a better job against Mandy, and the other Indigo trainer why the hell did they decide to flub up Ash's last battle.
I get that Ritchie was obviously inferior to Ash, but come on.
No battle will ever be as bad to me as Ritchie's was because it wasn't even a real battle. It was just some dancing choreography mess.
It honestly was so bad it was like Ritchie was directing the battle so he could win.
Ritchie: Okay Ash send out your disobedient Charizard so it can "beat" my Charmander (because it runs away), but you lose to my Pikachu and lose the battle.
Ash: *uncertain* I'm not sure about that, but okay.
People thought it was okay for Ash to lose with Charizard being disobedient, that's fine and everything but that wasn't the problem of the battle, that just added onto a very bad to begin with battle.
Take Ash vs Harrison but place it in the Indigo League, had a battle like that happened but Charizard was disobedient, and that's why Ash lost, sure it may be infuriating and everything for Ash to lose like that but at least the rest of the battle could make up for that infuriating but acceptable possibility.
So while I chose the Ritchie option, I didn't choose it because disobedient Charizard, because if I was forced to choose I would take disobedient but really good battle, over the horrible mess battle with only 5 Pokemon.
But I would rather choose the battle flow like it did with Cameron than that horrible mess that was "Ash vs Ritchie"
