DuquÊ?

Too lazy to pick a pic
I'm positive no one was deluded enough to buy that "leak".

Anyway, if it's about a scenary where Ash wins, the only way I see this happening and keeping the status quo is if Ash already pulls a z-move early in the battle, but in the climax, he and pikachu get an extra "power of friendship" boost to shot 10 Million T-Volt, which effectively defeats Gladion's last mon...but that wears out Ash and pikachu, and Gladion is declared winner by W.O. There, Ash both win AND lose.

I doubt myself, but, whatever can happen to finish this league.

Hmmm, or perhaps, Ash and Gladion both use their Z-moves early in the match, then during the final battle, they both try pulling off another one (since the limitation is different in the anime compared to the games) and only Ash can manahe to actually fire it off. Or Gladion, depending on who wins.

How is the limitation different compared to the games?

Games they can only be used once per battle with the exception of Rotom granting an extra Z-power boost. In the anime, it just depends on how much energy your Pokemon has left, as Z-moves take a lot out of them. Assuming both of their Pokemon catch their breath, I can definitely see both of them trying for a second Z-move.

Since the semifinals are 2 vs. 2 looks like we are in for the same or at least a 3 vs. 3 for the final match. Zoroark still has a shot

3-on-3 for the finals here sounds good. We obviously can't have a full 6-on-6 match at this point unless Satoshi makes a last minute call to Okido-hakase, but 3-on-3 is at least a good compromise.
 
Zoroark’s introduction during the battle against Kaki might have given more of a sliver of hope to Satoshi’s fate but with the final unknown threat waiting in the wings it certainly gives flashbacks to Kotetsu’s Riolu’s evolution + learning Aura Sphere, Darkrai’s ambiguity and hype, Nyarth in boots scouting report on Pikachu, the hype of the Hoenn Pokemon at the Silver Conference. Like Alan, Gladion also has something to prove as well. He also owns a Zoroark in USUM and it’s one of the early route hype ‘mon added to the Alola ‘dex. A rematch against Royal Mask and fulfilling Kukui’s “dream” would have been a good reason but Nyaheat will shine against Guzma. IIRC, Kukui did promise to battle Satoshi with Iwanko early in the series.

Welp, that """"""""""leak""""""""""" is pretty much deconfirmed, no way Gladion isn't using Zoroark in the entire league

Don’t be so hostile over a children’s franchise
Since today’s the 3 year anniversary of the infamous Kalos League, let’s hope this league isn’t the same way :p
