Not sure. But yeah I think.
I have to say though that I was really hoping Ash would it least get to the Top 4 if he is beat by Kortesu which we can assume he is. I have been impressed with the way he had battled this saga. But I think not useing Krookodile in the Kortesu match beat him. If he had used it instead of Boldore. I think he would have won.
