I think Ash will lose to someone else. We know he beats Kotetsu and Kotetsu's Riolu doesn't evolve in the battle. So that means in the same episode Ash faces off against someone else and loses to them.

There hasn't been any more episode names to come out which is a bit surprising. We have about 6 weeks between the time of today and when the Plasma Arc starts. I'd assume that they will have a 2 week or so break. Giving us four weeks. and only two of the four week episodes have been revealed. The last match between who ever beats Ash, will probably be a two part episode.

Also I am looking at the teams again between their match. It doesn't look like Ash is using Krookodile in the episode, so Hydreigon is a major threat. I am a bit surprised sense that is really only the powerhouse he has. Also looking at the last picture of panel, Pikachu defeats Swanna in the last battle with pikachu. So it looks like Kotetsu lost and he is acting stupid.

I'm not keeping my hopes up for Ash to win. While it would be nice if he won the league, I don't see it happening.

Same here. I am still pretty sure he will get beat by Team Eevee. He may have to face Dino before Virgil however.

An upcoming ep is called Isshu League Conclusion Lucario vs Pikachu. Maybe Virgil was called away on a ranger mission. (Bridge to Episode N maybe?) That would be interesting

Ah thanks. I didn't see serebii post anything about it. Hmm, that seems a bit odd to me.

Just seen it. Man I really do not like the sound of that episode. I really hate the idea that Kortesu beats Ash. And no, there will be no bridge episode between Unova League and N Arc, because the next week after Lucario vs Pikachu is when the N Arc starts. Man I hate that. So I guess Ash will be the top 8.

Well... here's the summary of the episode apparently...

Spoiler:
"The Unova League fiercely continues into the fourth round. Ash and Kotetsu's battle continues to become even more extreme. Kotetsu's partner Riolu then evolves into the Wave Pokemon Lucario. With all of its moves powered up plus learning a new move, Ash and Snivy are both cornered..."


Nope not liking this. Hydreigon must have knocked out several of his Pokemon or Ash's Pokemon was simply knocked around in general before Riolu because Pikachu takes down two of his Pokemon as we have seen. Not sure why it says 'Ash and Snivy' when the title is Lucario vs. Pikachu either. :|b

Idk. This almost seems like they just want to get this league over with and move on to the plasma saga now.

This has been by far the worst league other than Kanto. They rushed the league way to fast. Johto League is still the best by far. I kinda feel sorry for Trip now.

Isn't there a break at times between bridge eps? like Ash going to Hoenn and Sinnoh? Thats what I meant by bridge. A conflic connecting to the next series or arc. Like how Pikachu was drained of it's power in the final ep of OS and how that was a "bridge" into AG

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.

32 people are in the battle with Kotetsu vs Ash. So Ash vs Virgil is top 16. If Ash loses he makes top 16. If he wins he goes onto Top 8. All of his rivals are battled before Ash gets to top 8. So even after Virgil's battle, there are 2 battles after that if they are shown. We know they'll get to Kotetsu's battle without interruption. I can only imagine the entire tournament continues like that.

Though we have placements pretty much.
Quoting my old post cause there is an update/edit to make.

Ash fights someone before Stephan, so Trip still doesn't really make it into the Top 100, but Ash and Stephan are both in the top 32 when their battle takes place (from what I've seen). I haven't seen a gap between Kotetsu and Stephan's battles with Ash yet so Kotetsu is in the top 16 and will continue to top 8 with Virgil. Considering there is one episode left to be unveiled before the N Arc as the Anime is taking a 2 week break which are the episodes we'd need to fill in the complete Unova league, it may end with Virgil vs Ash. Since that is the last episode, going off what has happened in the past, Ash will lose to Virgil and they'll do a synopsis finish since every battle after that is no longer important to the story since they don't include Ash.

So looks like Top 8 or so for Ash. Unless there are two skipped battles before Virgil's battle and Ash faces Virgil in the finals.

But as the new episodes reads Episode 769: Unova League Conclusion! Lucario VS Pikachu!! It sounds like Ash will lose before he gets to Virgil.

Unless that the battle between them ends early in that episode and he faces Virgil and gets beat in the same show.

Well, unless Ash and Co. find themselves at some other battlefield between the Unova League and the N Episode either Plasma crashes the battle or they just skip right to after the Unova League and their hanging out on the battlefield. So... either way there are three (?) possibilities, maybe more?

1. Ash does lose against Kotetsu.
2. Wins against Kotetsu and loses against Virgil in next round.
3. Wins or loses against Kotetsu and Plasma (or team rocket???) crashes the party either way.

idk anymore. v_v; I'm not good at this predicting stuff lmao. But Kotetsu or anyone else seems to be nowhere to be found in the N episode preview (that I won't post here because this is Unova League thread) who knows. :/ But even though it's inevitable that Ash loses at someone I'm still going to be a bit disappointed if it ends up being Kotetsu.

I am really going to be maif he loses. Kortesu didn't even know he was suppose to have 6 pokemon apperently.... I much rather he lose to Virgil in the next episode... It is Lucario vs Snivy and Pikachu I think.

Snivy will probably be beat by Lucario, but Pikachu has hardly battled ending both of the battles it was in in 2 or 3 attacks.

I hope Ash doesn't lose, because he would be going backwards. Top 4 in Sinnoh. It does sound like he might be losing soon though.

Ash lost to Kotetsu.

Kotetsu lost to Virgil.

Virgil beats one other guy in the Finals.

Guy Virgil beat, beat someone else right before.

So Ash made it to the top 8 again this season. Which is lower than the place he made in Sinnoh. (Ash would have been number 5 as it was Virgil vs Kotetsu in the Semi Finals.

No Eevee Evolution shown. =C

Really makes me roll my eyes when the idiot that hardly knew anything beat Ash. At least Virgil won. Which is still a very nice hint for upcoming eeveelutions.

The Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Unova Leagues are far more better then the Sinnoh League that's for sure. I do think Trip did perfectly fine.

Ash will never win unless people want his adventures to stop.... yet another learning experience for his X & Y adventures

My pick someone who doesn't seem like a contender at all... Always let the underdog win right? or this case undercat fox whatever they are categorized as... Virgil's my pick...


Plus im a big supporter of Kanto... Majority of his team are Kanto based
