73 Yes went to 73. Between Hikari and Ultimate PKMN there was no 72, so everything was back a number. Yes, Ash is losing, and I think he lost. Cameron brought 5 cuz he thought it was 5 on 5! Riolu evolved and knocked out Snivy and later Pikachu. He goes down in the final 8. Again.
I like Ash, but Battle frontier or Orange league aren't that important? But he won...yeah. But he lost to Trip...when he choosed Snivy it was a baby Snivy lv.5. Ash lost to a baby Snivy lv.5 with his Pikachu lv. 500?! Even without Electric Attacks, he can win.
