The Final Leon battle will definitely be a 6v6.Gengar + Pikachu + Dracovish vs Steven
Lucario + Dragonite + Sirfetch'd vs Cynthia
6 vs 6 agaisnt Leon?
I agree with the facts. But Alola set a sad precedence where the champion Battle was 3v3 and now we have Regional Champion Fighting 3v3 in 1/8. I believe prior to Alola 1/16 were already 6v6...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).
That was because the final penultimate battle for Ash in Sun&Moon was not Ash vs Gladion, but instead Ash vs Kukui & Tapu Koko which was a 6vs6 battle.I agree with the facts. But Alola set a sad precedence where the champion Battle was 3v3 and now we have Regional Champion Fighting 3v3 in 1/8. I believe prior to Alola 1/16 were already 6v6...
My biggest fuss about Master 8 Tournament is not the match-ups etc but the far World strongest Trainers are fighting 3v3.
I also believed we should've had 3v3 in Normal Class, 4v4 in Super, 5v5 in Ultra and 6v6 in Master.
I mean it‘s evident that the writers try to avoid 6v6 battles as much as possible. We had none in JN so far, just one in SM and two in XY - where, however, each 6v6 felt like 2 3v3s due to the lack of switching. Then we had the Cameron battle, which is another can of worms, which means the last (and in my opinion only) good 6v6 was the battle against Paul which is more than a decade ago.
and even that battle is flawed due to how some view it...some because Paul might have weakened himself with the pokemon he used and used a clearly inferior strategy to the lake acuity battle...and others...Infernape wiping half his squad.
I would say in the kalos league Ash vs Sawyer was at least ok.
vs Alain not so much.
i want ash to barely scrape by steven and steamroll cynthia just to see cynthia fans foam at their mouthsI hope Ash easily beats Steven, not 'easy' but enough that his battle with Cynthia looks more impressive with Ash barely coming out of it
