    I figured that this will be Lycanroc's time to use a Z-move.

    BR - None
    Top 16 - None
    Top 8 - Rowlet (Bloom Doom)
    Top 4 - Pikachu (Gigavolt Havoc)
    Finals- Lycanric (Splintered Stormshards)
    MR- Torracat (Inferno Overdrive)

    I hope that this is a 3 vs 3.

    Gladion starts of with Lycanroc and seeing that, so does Ash.
    Turns out to be Zoroark. Lycanroc uses the Z-Move and KO's Zoroark but is severly weakened.

    Gladion sends out the real Lycanroc and Ash's Lycanroc is too mad at being tricked that it WANTS to stay. Gladion uses that and KO's Lycanroc.

    Ash takes a page from Gladion and sends out Rowlet. A Pokémon that Gladion has yet to battle and it starts to even out the match. Gladion observes that Rowlet's Feather Dance is just Substitute.

    Rowlet vs Lycanroc ends in a tie as Seed Bomb hits Lycaroc as a Stone Edge his Rowlet.

    Episode ends with Gladion sending out Silvally and Ash's Meltan falling into battlefield as his last Pokémon much to him and Pikachu's surprise.

    Didnt Gladion say he wanted to see the 10 million volt Thunderbolt in action?

    An unorthodox Mythical Pokémon showcasing the new evolution that wins Ash the League is not out of the question. In fact, it's the perfect place to highlight and promote said evolution to sell the merchandise (at least more so than Zoroark :p). And if the Rowlet was any indication, expect the unexpected with this writer.

    If he makes the finals...

    50%
     
  6. 70%. I mean if Kiawe can already midnight Lycanrock, it should be so hard for Ash to do

    Then obviously you should instead hope Gladion wins in order to curse him and cause him to lose.

    It's probably too late for that. When the episode was written he was hoping Ash would win.

    But seriously, I doubt Ash is winning this.

    Probably gonna lose to gladion. As much as id like him to win by this point I don't see him winning until the end of the anime, especially with such an underwhelming team. I think when he eventually wins it should be with a team of fully evolved Pokémon. And he should also use reaerves in the league he wins. It would be fitting for all his Pokémon to help with his big win not just his current team

    Much like Kalos League, I'm expecting Ash to lose here. I'd like if he won even if with Alola League being so lame but I still think it's more likely he loses.

    I think that Ash is most likely losing here.

    True and I agree with his thinking. It just doesn't hurt to be clear and explain why you think something

    playerking Sick of dealing with idiots.

    That doesn't mean he will. An episode dedicated to Gladion fighting Professor Kukui makes little sense.

    Because the anime always makes sense.

    Although it makes less sense it's what in hoping for. You know if ash faces kukui it's going to come down to yet another unevolved Pokémon faces it's evolved form *yawn* and we really don't need anymore of them

    You...you do know what kind of anime this is, right.

    Yeah. Gladion can fight Kukui if the writers let him.

    I could see both Gladion or Ash winning the whole thing. They both represent the color of the red balloon.

    Yeah let's hype up Ash's relationship with Kukui and Masked Royal and Torracat's development, make an entire episode of Ash inspiring past Professor Kukui, have an Ash vs Kukui battle interrupted and never resumed since SM002, show Kukui dreaming about Ash vs Masked Royal in the opening...

    To crush everything because Ash can't win even a somewhat amateur league.
    The worst thing is that there is always a chance the writers actually do this, even more after Kalos League(aka champions bait)
