so maybe the match goes like this:
Pikachu vs Tyranitar: Pikachu is recalled
Noivern vs Tyranitar: Noivern
Noivern vs Bisharp: Bisharp and recalled
Hawlucha vs Weavile: Hawlucha
Hawlucha vs Unfezant: Unfezant
Talonflame vs Unfezant: draw
Field change
Pikachu vs Metagross: Pikachu
Pikachu vs Charizard: Charizard and recalled
Goodra vs Bisharp: Goodra
Goodra vs Charizard: Charizard
Grenina <-->Ash-Greninja vs Charizard<--> Mega Charizard X: Greninja<-->Ash-Greninja.
Pikachu literally pulling a Swellow at this league.
 
Since Bisharp was recalled I'd guess that would be Goodra's win while it comes down to Ash-Greninja vs. Mega Charizard X in the next episode.

I think Hawlucha has a good chance of getting a win against Weavile and Talonflame will at least knock out Unfezant. And I think Pikachu will win against Metagross too so really, I'm just hoping to see Noivern get a win since everyone else might have a good shot. If Pikachu can be recalled against Tyranitar and Noivern wins, I think this would be a fair battle for everyone.

I wonder why Ash uses Hawlucha at the beginning again. I don't like the trend of being one of the first ones to be knocked out. At least, it seems, that everyone will leave with a solid League record.

Actually, Ash starts with Pikachu, and Hawlucha is the 2nd to fall after Noivern.

you know giving it some more thought since after the Talonflame vs Unfezant(male) match up no matter who wins that there will wind up being a field change once the battle ends, so maybe Talonflame wins and then it winds up losing to Charizard later on. So provided there planning to give Goodra a win either it is the one that takes out Bisharp or it winds up taking out Metagross and Pikachu winds up taking out Bisharp, although the main problem with Goodra fighting Metagross is that we know Pikachu is also fighting Charizard and Goodra isn't in the VA list.

At the same time, I'd be okay with Talonflame losing and then Goodra taking out Bisharp and Unfezant. I feel almost certain that Noivern will take down Tyranitar. Not that it seems to be represented, but attention in the magazine was called to Sand Stream. If there is a Sandstorm, I can see Noivern using its echolocation to find Tyranitar. But that's a reach...

I don't think they would have Talonflame lose to Unfezant, I think either it will be a tie or Talonflame will beat Unfezant. Now in regards to Goodra it seems like it could be the one to take out Bisharp, I mean sure it would be nice for it to take out Metagross, but right now considering what we saw in the preview I'm thinking that Goodra probably doesn't fight Metagross.

Bisharp and especially unfezant looks like nothing more than fall guys to give Ash 2 free wins.
You know the only battle that really matters is greninja vs MCX. The others are just there to have a full battle. But it's always nice to see pikachu battle bigger pokemons.

And I should mention as a follow-up to me not paying attention earlier, the battlefield definitely does change. I just hope they don't get too far into the second half, maybe just the first match-up (Pikachu vs Metagross)? I can understand that a bit when you compare it with the Sawyer battle, the episode ended just before the interval but lost about 5 minutes at the start of the episode.
yeah I didn't notice well enough. I don't really like the field change so i was hoping it wasnt.
I was more into the pokemon changing the landscape with attacks and what not but this works as well.
Which doesn't make sense from canyon to grassy land, but wishes

All I want to know is why is Alain risking his Charizard at all? You saw the kind of monster Ash-Greninja can be, why would you allow it to take damage?

Because they want to water down Ash's victory by having Greninja beat a Tired Mega Charizard X : )

Maybe to highlight the difference between Ash and Alain throughout the battle. Ash having faith in all of his Pokemon while Alain, when feeling pressured, falls back to his ace in the hole.

Based on this one though... Ash is doing the same with Pikachu

Especially that quick attack. I think that Alain will probably send Charizard against Pikachu because he can't seem to pin him down. I also think he will ultimately regret using Charizard this early, especially if he's facing a fresh Greninja in the next episode. It's nice to see that Alain won't have such an easy time with Ash like he had with the others.
