What’s your favorite/least favorite battle in the anime?


Pokémon Master (Kinda)
I disliked Ash vs Cameron due to a bunch of errors.Like how he said 3 battles in a row was a lot for even Pikachu even after Pignite had 3 in a row.Riolu kept dodging undodgable moves like Aerial ace and it was basically a Pikachu and Pignite sweep on his whole team and Ash only lost because of Riolu evolving.

This thread belongs in Polls.

Favorite: Ash vs Kukui, Ash v Gary @Johto a close second

Least favorite: Ash v Paul
(No, there is nothing you can say that will ever change my mind about this awful battle)

I think the reason people liked the Ash vs Paul battle was because of how unpredictable it was and it had lots of strategy.

Unpredictable? Ha, what a joke. By the time of the League battle, it was obvious the writers had zero interest in giving Paul meaningful consequences for his actions (He still had Chimchar and blamed it for losing during his his battle with Cynthia, which he later abandoned like the coward he is [and for which the writers horribly had Ash defend his cowardice], and the loss to Brandon is meaningless, as Ash lost twice and nearly lost a third time to him), so they let him destroy Ash's team with only 2 Pokemon. A damn meaningful consequence would have been having any, if not most, of Paul's Pokemon be disloyal for his constant abuse of them.

Strategy? Another laughable praise often given to this mockery of the anime. All Paul did was use brute force again and again and again and it was allowed to work for him and only him. Grabbing a Pokemon isn't a strategy and a Counter Shield like Gastrodon's should be treated like the joke it is instead of some amazing tactical move.

I hope Ash gets a rematch with Tobias but this time he would use his best team and Tobias would have his other 4 Pokémon revealed

Favorite: Ash vs Kukui, Ash vs Paul and Ash vs Sawyer
Least favourite: Ash vs Cameron, ash vs elesa and ash vs Ritchie. (I personally don't mind the Hau match that much :p)

They could've at least given Cameron another pokemon and I think the Ash vs Hau battle would've been better if it was a 2v2 and they used Pikachu and Alolan Raichu.
