The position as number 1 is at stake! The Pokémon World Championships Masters Tournament FINALS IS SATOSHI VS DANDE!!

The tournament that has been filled with fierce fights, and which the position as the greatest at Pokémon battling is at stake, has at last reached the finals! Who will ultimately win? Will it be Satoshi? Or will it be Dande?

SATOSHI:
Completely novel ideas?! Will Satoshi get the victory of his dreams using "Satoshi strategies"?
Satoshi's Pokémon battling always makes use of completely novel ideas where you never know what's going to happen! If he nails his trademark Satoshi-style strategies in the critical moment, can he even beat Dande...?!

Surprising ideas turn trouble into chances for victory!
Satoshi has quickly gotten out of countless troublesome situations by using moves in ways that shocked absolutely everyone. These are all unconventional strategies he's able to use precisely because of his strong mutual bond with his Pokémon!

*Controlling the electricity from 1 Million Volt Thunderbolt at will!
*Knocking back rocks with Iron Tail!
*Spinning around while firing off Thunderbolt!
*Destroying Stealth Rock with Negigaknight's shield!
(captions here are illegible)

DANDE:
This is the power of the reigning champ! He's overwhelmed everyone in the battles on his way to the finals!
Dande is completely undefeated in official matches, and is so strong that this has held true for his matches against the formidable opponents in the Masters Tournament as well. Will he also be able to show Satoshi the power of the reigning champ?!

Dande's Pokémon are all at ace-tier strength!!
Dande has only used 3 Pokémon thus far! No matter which Pokémon he sends out, it won't be easily defeated!

A DIGEST OF SATOSHI AND DANDE'S BATTLES THUS FAR
Let us showcase how Satoshi and Dande have fought so far, and which of their Pokémon you should keep an eye on!

SATOSHI:

ROUND 1: VS DAIGO
Though Uonoragon got defeated, Satoshi passed the first round thanks to Gangar landing one victory and Pikachu landing two!
*Gangar won over Bossgodora with "Will-O-Wisp", which inflicts the Burned condition on the opponent!
*Pikachu landed the finishing blow with "Iron Tail" after stopping the opponent in place with "1 Million Volt Thunderbolt"!

SEMIFINALS: VS SHIRONA
Satoshi was in trouble after Pikachu got defeated by Shirona's Mikaruge's "Destiny Bond"! However, his Mega Evolved fought hard and managed to defeat both Togekiss and Gablias in succession! This amazing turnabout resulted in advancing to the finals!
*Negigaknight demonstrated its willpower while cornered by Shirona's attacks!
*Lucario fought valiantly against the Daimaxed Togekiss and Shirona's ace Gablias!!

THE POKÉMON OF SATOSHI'S YOU SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON: MEGA LUCARIO
*Lucario has a special bond with Satoshi through the power of wave guidance. They are truly one in body and soul (rest is cut off)

DANDE:

ROUND 1: VS ALAN
This was a battle that drew lots of attention due to being a showdown between two Lizardon! Dande seized the victory by defeating Alan's Mega Lizardon X.
(illegible blurbs)

SEMIFINALS: VS CARNE
Gorirander played a major role in this battle, defeating 4 of Carne's Pokemon! Even the counterattacks from Sirknight after it Mega Evolved fell short, and Dande swept.
(illegible blurb)

THE POKÉMON OF DANDE'S YOU SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON: LIZARDON (KYODAIMAX FORM)
(illegible blurb)

LET'S BATTLE AT FULL THROTTLE AND WITH ALL OUR MIGHT!
Throughout their adventures thus far, Satoshi and Dande have grown close enough they're practically friends. The dream match between these two Pokémon battle lovers finally begins! Make sure not to miss this!!

DANDE:
LET'S GIVE THEM THE BEST BATTLE EVER!

LIZARDON:
It showed off its Kyodaimax in the match against Carne, but its true power is apparently far beyond that?! We expect it to go all out!

DORAPULT:
It appeared in the match against Carne as well, though we still don't know how strong it is. As its species name "Stealth Pokémon" suggests, it's an elusive opponent!

GORIRANDER:
Gorirander even Kyodaimaxed in the match against Alan. Can it beat out the rhythm of victory on its stump drums?

SATOSHI:
EVERYONE, LEND US YOUR STRENGTH!

UNONORAGON:
(illegible description)

NEGIGAKNIGHT:
It heads into battle with a knight's honor of valiantly facing any opponent without faltering that it inherited from Satoshi.

PIKACHU:
It has the same goal as its travelmate Satoshi: Going head-to-head against the reigning champ!

LUCARIO:
The "giant Aura Sphere" it learned by training with Satoshi is so enormously large it fills the entire stadium!

GANGAR:
Gangar loves pranks, but has grown to become a very reliable battler! Seize victory with Kyodaimax!

KAIRYU:
It gave Satoshi a victory with "Kairyuuseigun", which involved using "Draco Meteor" while plunging at the opponent!

"The Finals I: Torrent" airs Friday October 21st!!

Maybe it’s Seismitoad?
RIP Project Mew. Ash vs Leon better be incredible because having a recap before the battle you’ve been hyping up all series long is a boneheaded move

You never know lol. I can see them doing it. Ash and Leon have met enough times to do it. Waiting a whole month for the finals and semi-finals is just great :mad:

Yeah. 5 weeks of waiting from the Steven battle to the semifinals and another 5 weeks of waiting from the semifinals to the finals. The finals will be probably 3 episodes and then one last episode to conclude the series I think. o_O

Could be either. These recent Masters Eight titles have all been fancy single word titles anyway.
Yeah. It is more likely a figure of speech. Ash struggles to fight Leons Pokemon.

I know it is not the staffs fault,but it takes away the enjoyment big time. Rush(ing ) is what will do rn probably

It'll probably play out like Ash vs Cynthia. Ash loses three Pokemon right off the bat, but it's his other half of the team that were the MVPs (Dracovish, Sirfetch'd, maybe Lucario) that get KO'd.

Part 1? So Leon will have a harder time to beat Ash than Diantha then?

I guess it will get down to which hax mode among these 2 hax trainers will be activated more by the writers...
