Pokemon Fan Presents the Alola Pokémon League

I know this will piss people off, but I had to laugh when I saw how they were hyping up the different characters. Seeing 'next challenger' and all that hype for characters especially like Mallow, Sophocles, Lillie, Acerola, Samson Oak and Mina felt super unfitting.

Lillie battling Gladion, as it should be.

At least Kiawe's gonna outlast her! :D
And the 'main' Pokegirl will go down in the same round as Mallow, nice. That's satisfactory news at least.

Can’t be sure but did that video say the rounds will be 1v1? I really hope not. I hope it’s just the Top 16. I want Ash and Gladion’s battle to be at least a 3v3.

I think it’ll be a 1v1 for now.

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.

Awesome! Thanks, I'll update my post.

On another note, they're being kind of negative to Hau with that description. Couldn't they have come up with something more positive?

The only reference I'm sure of is Principal Oak: Man of a Thousand Faces is a famous film. This could also be a tribute to the late Unsho Ishizuka, as the film told the life story of a famous silent film actor who died to cancer.

Lana could be a reference to Misty, who's known as the tomboyish mermaid.

I've mentioned this before, but Guzma never actually referred to himself as the Emperor of Destruction in the games. As such, Emperor of Destruction, both the title given to Guzma as well as the episode title from before, could be a reference to the title of the third Pokemon film, Emperor of the Crystal Tower. (Also, fitting that a prince would lose to an emperor.)

Finally, Full-Powered (全力) has become somewhat of a catchphrase for Ash, given that he says it almost every time he performs a Z-move.

Here is my predictions for the Alola League

Top 16

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

Top 8


Ash vs Hau - Ash wins
Lana vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Scophocles vs Kiawe - Kiawe wins
Jessie vs Gladion - Gladion wins

Top 4

Kiawe vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Ash vs Gladion - Ash wins

Final Match

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.

I’m rooting for James to win. So it seems that Ash is battling his rivals, I wonder if one of those rivals will beat Kiawe. I’d rather not see Lana or Sophocles battling him. Kiawe against Gladion is a good matchup.

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.

But, I don't think that there's a lot of other options.

Given how the match’s are set up, I’m starting to think that Gladion will be the final opponent for ash instead of Gruzma.

I highly doubt that Ash is winning.
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.

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.
I can easily see this being the case.
