    Ash's team doesn't matter in the slightest.

    He has rookies except Pikachu in his team as of now...

    I think Ash will still use his current team
    Lycanroc is his ace
    Torracat wants a rematch vs Incineroar
    Melmetal still needs a win
    And if he uses the others, he wouldn't shaft Rowlet

    So the mystery is still mostly the sixth pokémon, if he needs one

    So what? Ash will win or lose depending on the will of the writers.
    Saying he will win or lose if he uses specific Pokémon is meaningless.

    If the writing staff wanted him to win he would regardless of if he used his alola team or stuff like infernape and snorlax

    Do you guys think that this full battle will go down to the wire and Kukui will use his full team against Ash or will he sweep through Ash easily with only 3 Pokémon?

    I know the writers of the show always get the final say but let’s say in-universe Ash saw the Masked Royal’s team, I’d probably tell Oak to call Tracey to bring me some of my reserve Pokémon..

    With all these Pokémon Kukui is revealing, do y’all think we’ll get some backstory on how he managed to obtain them? Even if it’s just a small flashback...

    Masked Royal will most likely have to use all 6...

    Ash’s current team stands no chance against the Masked Royal. Incineroar, Braviary, AND Lucario? Unless Pikachu is gonna be cleaning house, his Alola mons are going to get destroyed lol

    Bring on the reserves!

    It stands just as much chance of winning as a team of reserves does

    Not really, since his reserves are actually pretty well experienced and have notable feats, compared to the Alola team that are pretty much rookies finally getting some footing. Torracat’s second official battle was in the Pokémon League for heaven’s sake lol. Against MR’s current team, there is no realistic way I can see Ash pulling through unless Pikachu brings in the hammer and sweeps like half of the team

    Your forgetting one very important thing. That Pokémon aren't real. Its not like watching two teams in real life where yeah skill and experience would matter.

    This is fiction. If the writers wanted ash's alola team to beat masked royal then they would. Likewise if they wanted pokemon like infernape to lose to masked royal then it would

    Problem is, including the powers of the writers in a "what-if" topic kills a discussion...

    But it's also important to realise that if ash uses reserves it's not an auto win. And if he uses his alola team it's not an automatic loss.

    You’re forgetting one very important thing. That this place is for speculation and discussion.

    And based on the feats and capabilities of his reserves compared to his Alola team, I’m not confident he can do well. Braviary took down Golisopod, Incineroar took down a Mega, and Lucario is a Lucario, the writers’ favorite Pokémon. Pikachu can probably handle those three but what about the others? The team just isn’t ready for it. Masked Royal is definitely a Champion-tier trainer and Ash is gonna have to bring out the big guns.

    How's this for Kukui's team?

    I don't think that Kukui is using Mega Evolution at all.
  18. Revolver Furious Dragon

    Revolver Furious Dragon Well-Known Member

    Why not. It exists in alola and since kukui is the most powerful trainer in the region it's not out of the question for him to reveal it
  19. CMButch

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    I am still placing bets that there won't be any reserves for this battles, yet it will be Ash's SM team + Naganadel.

    As for Kukui's team; I predict that Kukui will have: Lucario(ME), Incineroar, Braviary, Magnezone, idk(Claydol) and ( I'd give him one Gen 1 Pokemon so Cloyster)

    The only Alolan character who uses Mega Evolution is Ilima (and it makes sense, considering he was in Kalos). Kukui even specializes in researching Pokemon moves so it makes more sense for him to use Z-Moves.
