    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    If this were the case, then what about Drake? He was in the exact same place as Kukui, however Ash defeating him did not make him a Regional Champion tier. Lol are you kidding me? Ash used a rookie basic Pokemon against Kukui. We've seen other Champions absolutely destroy and wreck fully...

    Who are you rooting for - Diantha or Lance?

    Lance. Given that he was the Rank 2 finisher last year, it would be amazing if he could be the one who initially pushes Leon in the semi-finals by bringing in a new Mega Like Latios/ Salamance/ MCY etc as a surprise. Would be even more perfect if Lance invites Ash for a training match at the...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    Nobody could care less about what you think. It is an objective fact that the anime is about Ash, given that he's the MC. No one cares what the minority of Iris stans think. If you want horrible writing to justify your delusional thinking, then that's your choice. Maybe don't pretend Iris...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    I disagree. I wouldn't compare Alain to Leon. Yes, Alain was a trainer with unbearable feats when compared to High Tier veteran trainers like Ash, Paul and even Tobias. However, Regional Champions were indicated to be one tier above based on Alain's fight with Steven. Leon is someone who was...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    The fact that Cynthis is ranked 2nd while Leon is ranked 1st; with the latter being referred to as the Undefeated Strongest Trainer in the World, already establishes Leon is better than Cynthia and very likely has beaten her in the past. (We see Flint battle Leon in the Master Class and Cynthia...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    1) Claiming Alder was not impressive in the anime "just cause of his personality" is too much of a stretch. We see Caitlin hold her own against Cynthia and Alder would objectively be better than her. 2) Ash's win in Alola was no different than his Orange Islands win. Alola was not an...

    July 22nd: PM2019 118 - Satoshi Heads Into Battle! VS Daigo!!

    The Final Leon battle will definitely be a 6v6. From the Orange Island arc, every mainline series has always given Ash at least 1 6v6 battle for an important match. Don't see anyone more important than Leon coming in to fill this spot (Just like Kukui did instead of Gladion in Alola).

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    I disagree with most of your comments. 1) Cynthia and Leon are not equal in the anime nor the games. Cynthia is arguably a much greater challenge in the games and Leon is definitely the superior trainer in the anime. There is a reason why Leon is ranked first and referred to as the unbeatable...

    Worst/Hated battle in Anipoke History

    Ash vs Cameron. If they wanted Ash to lose against Cameron, they could have had him lose in a regular 6v6 battle, or even better, have Ash also agree to use only 5 Pokemon (As he's always been someone who likes fighting fair). The fact that they had Cameron come into the battle forgetting a...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    Leon's dominance over Alain indicates how powerful Leon really is. As of now, from a plot perspective, there just isn't enough narrative to support Ash being a worthy enough challenger to Leon if they battle. In order to accomplish this, having Ash battle and defeat the 3rd and 2nd strongest...

    predictions of the future Scarlet and Violet anime

    Well before, Ash was always shown to be substantially weaker than Elite four members and even more weaker than Regional Champions. Hence, if a Regional Champion was an antagonist, there would've been literally no stopping him/her. I guess that changes now in Journeys. Hence, it certainly is...

    predictions of the future Scarlet and Violet anime

    Ash loses to Leon in the finals and the latter stays Monarch while PWC ranks reset. The new Scarlet and Violent Champion enters the PWC and shocks everyone by defeating Leon in the PWC. He/She then quit the PWC and Ash really wants to battle him/her. The S&V Anime series have an Orange...

    The Future of the World Championships

    I don't think Pikachu will lose if it is going to be the ace in the Leon fight. For some reason, I have a feeling Ash will follow Leon and probably start with G-Max Gengar right at the start of the fight. Would be even more impressive if Ash beats Steven using only 2 Pokemon, just like Leon...

    Will Iris beating Cynthia create the worse backlash ever?

    This would just be poor writing. The Anime story revolves around Ash and the primary focus is about him reaching Leon. Right before the Master Class qualification match, we see Ash Greninja effortlessly toy around with one of Ash's ace. Subsequently, in the master class tournament, we see...

    July 22nd: PM2019 118 - Satoshi Heads Into Battle! VS Daigo!!

    If Pikachu is going to be Ash's ace against Leon, it would be terrible to have it lose against Steven's Metagross, consider how strong Leon's Charizard was shown to be. Additionally, if Lucario is going to be Ash's biggest ace, that would be all the more absurd as we've just seen a couple of...

    Gary vs Paul based on their showings in Journeys

    Anime almost always consistently puts Ash in an underdog position in every single fight, irrespective of however good he is. We even see him nerfed and struggling against almost everyone in some way. In terms of skill, I would say Ash and Paul were always at the top and only inferior to Elite...

    The Curtain Rises! The Masters Tournament!! (1204)

    The same could be said about Bea and Lucario. Also in case of Sawyer and Ash where the rivalry was centered Around Sceptile and Greninja. The only difference in Alain from the previous 2 cases, has to do with the fact, that he's primarily focuses on training MCX (Instead of just being a strong...

    The Curtain Rises! The Masters Tournament!! (1204)

    Which is BS writing. At least in the case of Alain, they didn't indicate anything. So one can also assume he's been there for a while. In the case of Iris, she started much below Ash and was in the Super Class. It makes no sense how she overtook Ash when 1) Ash won all his Hyper Class battles...

    So Greninja was used and owned by who? Sawyer, Diantha? It was owned by Ash. What even is this stupid response...

    Pokémon Anime Future Episodes Leaks/Spoilers

    Using Gimmicks don't mean anything. Ash beat G-Max Daruladon with Base Lucario, while Leon used G-Max. Does that imply Base Lucario > Base Charizard? Nope. For all you know, Cynthia used a gimmick for the heck of it. To show Iris her true power or to get the crowd going like Leon at the start...
