    The more promotion those Eeveelutions receive, the more likely it is that they'll be the ones to stop Ash. Simple.

    An yet if its a 6 on 6 then two of them can't even be used in battle.

    Why would the writers make some Eevee's look better than others?

    Why wouldn't they? It's not like they have much of a choice.

    Besides, in the end I imagine it will be the normal Eevee who ends up being the most important... In which case whatever other evolutions end up participating in Ash's defeat will be largely irrelevant. The two missing ones can be shown defeating Virgil's prior opponent's, or something.

    I don't know what to make of the whole Ash vs Virgil and whether or not Ash will lose against him. I think that if one of the league competitors revealed thus far is going to eventually knock Ash out of the league, it is most likely going to be this Virgil kid. The only other possiblilty I am considering at this point, as well as hoping for is another Tobias-esque trainer preferably with a monster Hydreigon, possibly a female trainer would be the one to beat Ash. I wouldn't count on the latter happening as by know we would have some info on a hidden trainer who will appear at the league. So while i'm hoping another Tobias is going to be pulled off here, I would say that Ash is most likely to lose to Virgil as much as I hate to admit it.

    Assuming the regular Eevee is even used.

    I can't see Ash being defeated by something like a Leafeon or Umbreon in the last round. It just doesn't have that alpha pokemon lead status.

    There's no single promoted poke like a Darkrai or Blaziken.

    Eevee probably will be used. It + Kanto Trio + Johto or Sinnoh Duo works well aesthetically.

    Of course they don't, but perhaps a certain something will...

    Patience. The League's beginning, let alone the final battle, is still over a month away. The single promoted Pokemon shall come in due time.

    So since this Looks like a one on one and there is a limit to how much they can stretch it this begs the question what's going on for the bulk of the episode. I guess they can recycle the Moltres flame plot AGAIN or it is possible we might get a couple Cotd v rival fights

    We can tell from this scan that Virgil is especially close to his Eevee, which has a unique battling style.

    It's entirely possible that the opening ceremony will be glossed over like it had been the case during the Sinnoh League. The writers will most likely have Ash and co. "interact" with all of the recurring characters that will compete alongside Ash in the tournament, with at least five minutes devoted to league battles (and the start of Pikachu vs. Serperior).

    The scans do not confirm a one on one battle, the comic could only be showing the final battle in the match.

    Its still possible for a 3 on 3 at least.

    Being a three on three match would be the only other option since having anything more than that right at the start of the League would be a bit much. A part of me hopes that this is just a one-on-one match since it ends the rivalry with Trip even sooner. I still hope that the whole League won't be like that, but having the first couple of preliminary rounds for the League taking up an episode or two would be okay.

    I won't mind if the first few fights are one on one as long as that doesn't include Ash vs Bianca, since there's little of interest in those match-ups anyway. I do hope that we get the usual full battles later though, since Best Wishes has yet to have any. It'd be neat if some of the later rounds were Triple Battles, similar to how the Hoenn league had Doubles rounds, since we haven't had any of those other than that crappy one with the Maractus.

    I could see them use rotation battles somehow; you just need a rotating stage. And switching between your Pokemon would be like tagging in/switching in.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Except there were far more double and tag battles in AG than there had been triple or rotational battles in BW, and the writers had hinted in AG that there were going to be double battle rounds in the Hoenn League. Nothing was mentioned about triple or rotational battles since the Maractus episode. Although it might be a pleasant surprise for the writers to include a triple and/or rotational battle round for the Unova League, I doubt that they will suddenly bring them back here.

    True. Comics for some other important BW battles had only shown the final battle (Ash vs. Burgh, Ash vs. Clay, Ash vs. Shamus), so it might be possible for a 3-on-3 here. Of course, this is assuming that the Ash and Trip battle starts earlier in BW103 than expected and the writers spend less time with the opening ceremony.

    I bet the Eevee wins, not its evolutions.
