    Last League he won was Orange League (only League win), but last major accomplishment was the Battle Frontier.

    I found it interesting at first when people pointed out the balloon colors at the beginning of the tournament a couple of months ago, but now I do feel like the fandom is reaching a bit when it comes to how certain things are supposedly clues about Satoshi winning the battle against Gladio and the Alola League overall.

    The "Ash is going to win because of balloons" reminds me way too much of the "Skull kid confirmed because of chairs" thing from Smash.

    Bortgreen Pocket Monsters looks great!

    It kinda was a foreshadowing, but to World of Light instead

    I talk about that in the following comment:

    And, of course, the fact the prize is a match vs Masked Royal

    Well, that could be foreshadowing. The anime has forsakened storylines before though. I see Ash never winning a league as 'foreshadowing' for him losing this 'league' as well.

    What red balloon? The only red balloon I remember is that from Charmander episode( OS).

    In episode 127 they showed six balloons with each color representing Ash and the five classmates. Of the six the Dark red one floated up into the sky. There is some meaning behind that

    It means Ash is flying away to Galar.

    Duuuuuuuuuuuuh.

    Isn't Orange League non-canon, though? At least from what I heard. Wasn't it a filler arc to wait for Johto?

    No such thing as non-canon. It's not in the games, no, but he's still got the trophy in his room.

    It's not canon to the games but the anime is in its own continuity. So it's canon. It was a filler arc to buy time for johto but that doesn't make it non canon

    Well, if you say so.

    But on another thread, I can't believe we're actually using balloons to predict the outcome. What if the balloons failed to predict? When was there a last time where we had to use something to predict something?!

    No, it doesn't have to mean something. You're making all of this up.

    They put that scene there for some reason. Even if by chance it has nothing to do with the league

    No they didn't. You're giving these writers way too much credit.

    If Torracat wins the Guzma fight on his lonesome, I could see it or Rowlet sitting out for a 4v4 with Gladion

    So how much longer until we get a summary? If they are hiding the winner of Gladion vs. Kiawe then hopefully sometime next week

    It will probably be sometime before the Guzma vs Ash fight happens or during that since it is 2 episodes.

    I'd laugh if Kiawe actually won.
    The guy would deserve it but still pretty unexpected
