They really trying to hype up the league, are they?
Anyway, let's pick one of them, shall we? Who will be the winner, let's see... Gladion? Maybe...?
Say no more!They're clearly having fun with this.
I love how everyone has these fancy titles. I'd kind of like to see a translation just to see what they ar
For Hau, a better translation would probably be "Riding on His Grandfather's Coattails". I remember reading something about that particular expression once long ago in a translator's notes section of some manga.Say no more!
Kiawe: Hot-Blooded Volcano
Sophocles: Fighting Programmer Boy
Lillie: Blooming Ice Flower of Alola
Lana: Sharp-Tongued Mermaid
Mallow: Magnificent Battle Chef
Hau: Said to Have Benefited From His Grandfather (Literally: To Say with Seven Lights) (This one I'm not sure)
Acerola: Idol of the Spiritual World
Mina: Wandering Battle Painter
Ilima: Lovely Normal Prince
Guzma: Emperor of Destruction
Faba: Alola's King of Inventions
Jessie: Battlefield Artist
James: White Hole Soldier
Principal Oak: Man of a Thousand Poke-Faces
Gladion: Young Noble of the Pale Blue Moon
Ash: Full-Powered Challenger
Awesome! Thanks, I'll update my post.For Hau, a better translation would probably be "Riding on His Grandfather's Coattails". I remember reading something about that particular expression once long ago in a translator's notes section of some manga.
Given how Plumeria played dirty to benefit Guzma, if Guzma beats Ilima, I don't see him winning the League. Even if the Masked Royal beats him, Guzma will have still accomplished his mission of winning the League so he can destroy it, which would leave a horrible taste in people's mouths.Here is my predictions for the Alola League
Ash vs Faba - Ash wins
Ilima vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Hau vs Samson - Hau wins
Mallow vs Lana - Lana wins
Scophocles vs Mina - Scophocles wins
Jessie vs James - Jessie wins
Kiawe vs Acerola - Kiawe wins
Lille vs Gladion - Gladion wins
Ash vs Hau - Ash wins
Lana vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Scophocles vs Kiawe - Kiawe wins
Jessie vs Gladion - Gladion wins
Kiawe vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Ash vs Gladion - Ash wins
Ash vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Guzma vs Masked Royal - Masked Royal wins
In the final moment of that battle there is an explosion and the impact make the mask come off and everyone finds out Kukui is The Masked Royal. This battle opens Guzma's eyes and he sees how he was wrong and gives up his title of champion to Kukui so he can go train and earn it again probably.
But, I don't think that there's a lot of other options.Given how Plumeria played dirty to benefit Guzma, if Guzma beats Ilima, I don't see him winning the League. Even if the Masked Royal beats him, Guzma will have still accomplished his mission of winning the League so he can destroy it, which would leave a horrible taste in people's mouths.
Do you really think they'll have a "Bad Guy wins" scenario in Pokémon and have the Alola League be destroyed? Because if Guzma wins, the Alola League will be destroyed. That's Guzma's goal. The match against the Masked Royal is an exhibition match. And even if Guzma loses that, which he would, it would be a case of Kukui winning the battle but losing the war since Guzma would still be Champion and be able to destroy the Alola League. And after that, it would be highly difficult for Kului to simply make another League even should Guzma get arrested, killed, or banished to another dimension. The stigma of having Kukui's League being won by scum like Guzma would stick around for a long time. The only way I can see Guzma beating Ash is if he faces Ash in a round other than the finals. If it's the finals, then Ash will win because if he doesn't, he will be a true failure for not only losing the League, but allowing it to be destroyed and/or discredited by Guzma, which would leave a horrible taste in everyone's mouth.I highly doubt that Ash is winning.
I can easily see this being the case.Given how the match’s are set up, I’m starting to think that Gladion will be the final opponent for ash instead of Guzma.
