It has been updated.

Well they said intro, but whatever.
Yeah I meant the opening. My bad. Should’ve worded that better.

Do all those silhouettes have to be Hyper Class opponents tho? That female silhouette looked really like Cynthias.
Sorry, but this silhouette doesn't look like Cynthia's, remember the black elements in her hair contradict that. The only correct shade is only one person, no one else of the traineer girls fits this shade outline.
I checked all characters match and only one person fits very well - Sabrina.

Now since Ash who was originally 99 was moved up to 64 and Volkner who was originally 27 was moved down to 36, this would mean that anyone between the ranks of 27-36 and 99+ was affected. Since Ash is no longer ranked 99, whoever was ranked 100 would take his place. Meanwhile, since Volkner was moved to 36, whoever was ranked 28 took the rank of 27 and anyone between 27-36 moved up by one.
The previous 98th ranked took the new 99th rank as anyone between 64-98 moved down by one rank.
99 + 27 = 126

126 / 2 = 63
This system do not work on Ash vs Korrina and Ash vs Iris. Korrina wasn't even in Top 1000 yet by beating her, Ash enter Top 1000. Same with Iris regarding Top 100. In fact, there is a rule that only participants from the same class can have battle, if they system you proposed is used, there is no way they can reach higher class.

The system might be point-based like FIFA world ranking. You gain/loss point based on the result (W/D/L) and opponen'ts rank. The ranking will change as the points changes.

Considering that it was specifically talking about the Hyper Class, yes all of those silhouettes are for characters in the Hyper Class that Ash will battle.
One of them looks like Giovanni , if it is, can’t wait! Though I would have thought he would be in the masters 8

What even was the point of James catching Morpeko 70 episodes late into the series?
I miss the starving Rockets gag.
Poor thing got Chewtle-ized.
IMO, giving Urshifu to the 2 PM participants is such a waste...
I would consider it an odd choice if Goh/ Goh and Ash are also going to catch them. It would feel somewhat redundant to me, rather than having Goh train Rapid Strike to rival Tsurugi, and give Asahi a Toxtricity or G-Slowbro/ Slowking that Goh would have the counterpart to as his other rival.

It is really weird since its capture, Morpeko has dissapeared. I thought it would be a part of Team Rocket now, but I think I was wrong. What a waste for the build up. With how less Team Rocket appears that isnt a good sign.

Fun fact: Team Rocket hasnt been in Kalos or Jotho since the start of JN.

The previous 98th ranked took the new 99th rank as anyone between 64-98 moved down by one rank.

Yeah you're right, taking the average of both numbers would just cap the rank since they can only battle people within the same class. This pretty much breaks my whole system like you mentioned. It was a nice attempt though, I tried.

Personally, I don't like the idea of a trainer's rank suddenly decreasing out of nothingness, mainly because it wouldn't be fair to the individual. I feel like it should mainly stay as a consequence of losing or not participating in enough battles.

So I'm thinking that maybe each class has a separate grace period that forces to the meet some type of quota.

Like maybe people within the normal class must partake in at least 3 battles a week, those within the great class must do at least 2, and people within the hyper class have their battles chosen for them (at least 1 per week).

And then let's say that there are two battles happening consecutively.

Red (Rank 60) vs. Blue Rank (99) and Green (Rank 105) vs. Yellow (Rank 106)

If Blue wins against Red, he will just be put in a higher rank that becomes available. Since his 99th spot is now open, whoever wins between Green and Yellow takes that spot advancing them to the Ultra Class.

It'll just pit the challenger to the nearest spot that becomes available, along with a few other variables.

Since battles are happening at all times all around the world, new positions are constantly opening. This is also makes it so that a person's rank may increase even if they are not battling.

It is very hard to predict how much he will go up or down. It appears to be random. However, in the Hyperclass they get emails with opponents decided for you, so you could be in a disadvantage.

Hell yeah!! Bea using GMAX Machamp against Ash's Mega Lucario!!

Also looks like Ash will be getting his iconic fingerless gloves. Not sure if it's a permanent design change or only for mega evolution, either way it looks cool, and I like the placing of the keystone. Guess he's not getting a mega ring.

What does Ash say when he mega evolves Lucario?
