What was the point of introducing Virgil if ash never even faces him? Either that or he will beat ash in a 6v6 in less than one episode.
Also LOL at those who actualy thought ash would win.

Eevee Cup, as well as all that Eevee-based merchandise that will be released in the coming weeks.
Sometimes, characters are just created in the show for marketing purposes.

The main reason that kept me to the show is that I am waiting for Snivy's background story.
I am thinking about Gen 6 now, I'll watch the first 10 episode, look through the Pokedex. If there is no Pokemon with interesting characteristic or the overall design is worse than Gen 5, I'll quit the Anime completely.

We lets see how they handle N Plasma Dan and the Return of Team Rocket to see if this saga is saved but if they dont know how to carry that someone must think if its logic to make an Anime Series of Gen 6.(Or renew charachters COUGH COUGH).
I really dislike how in BW the happiness based evolutions have occurred mid battle just like a levelling up one (see also Leavanny). The way they showed the flashback of Virgil's Umbreon evolving to help light the way is probably the only example of one being done right in BW.
The differing ways of evolving Pokemon is something that I like being highlighted, but they haven't been focused on very well at all - even the episode dedicated to the Karrablast/Shelmet trade evolution was poorly handled in highlighting its uniqueness, it was just made out to be a plain old trade evolution. If characters are going to be given these Pokemon that evolve in unique ways, they really need to pay attention and make sure that their evolutions are special when they occur.
That said, considering Ash got to the league with a tonne of undeserved Gym victories on the back of mid-battle evolutions, I have negative-20 sympathy for him in this situation.
I'd say that it'd be like May's Kanto Grand Festival entry. She beat Drew in a battle that took up like half of the episode, then afterwards we got to see a 1/2 minute battle between her and Soledad were she was just about to lose. This could be the case here too, with the writers going to the scene where Ash and Virgil only has one Pokémon left each. Even though that'd be kinda sucky too, it'd still be better than having Ash lose to Kotetsu.

OF ALL THE ..... This upcoming Team Plasma arc better be good enough to win an EMMY or Annie award...because if this lucario Is KOTETSU's and Ash loses then i will lose A LOT of what little respect for the anime i already have left... Even though it isnt confirmed that ash will lose to kotetsu i would rather see ash lose to someone such as Virgil or a random leauge COTD. this leauge has be by far the worst in my thoughts so far. And if that lucario is kotetsu's and he beats ash then i will say that Lucario defeated Ash. Not Kotetsu. ugh only time will tell on this episode
Pikachu take down half of Kotetsu's team just so we can get a glimpse of Ash losing to Virgil.
Is there any proof that Satoshi loses to Kotetsu? He wins in the magazine scan, which has been accurate so far (to my knowledge). The title could simply mean that the Unova League is nearing its conclusion.
