    The battle is probably going to be either 1 on 1 (I hope not), 2 on 2 or 3 on 3.

    I can't speak for everyone else but, as I mentioned this in the BW104 preview thread, I personally have had my fill of 1 on 1 match-ups, thanks to the overabundance of smaller tournaments throughout Best Wishes! They've just been over-done this series and I was looking forward to seeing some more substantial battles with the Unova League. By "substantial", I don't just mean drawn-out in length, but also that it's usually more interesting to see how a trainer works with a combination of different pokemon, as opposed to just relying on the strength of a single pokemon to get them through. (As I recall, in the Sinnoh league Paul and Conway both used their initial pokemon to manipulate Ash and to gauge as much as possible about his overall battle strategy, rather than hitting him with brute strength from the go. Ultimately, it was a given that Ash would beat them in the end, but it made the details of the journey that bit more interesting.)

    If the League is composed solely of 1 on 1 battles what makes it so much different than any of the Don Battle Tournaments? Of course the stakes are slightly higher, but it doesn't properly gauge the progress of the trainers after their journey through the region. Strong trainers who developed a strategy using several Pokemon within their team can get defeated by the noob who spams only one Pokemon. It cheapens the journey from a storyline perspective. I hope Ash vs Trip is a preliminary or a 3 v 3 that's been truncated to fit the manga. If the Unova League is marginalized to a 1 v 1 Don Battle Tournament then it will clearly be the worst league in the anime's history and would be the capstone to the worst region we've had to date.

    As long as Virgil pulls a Tobias and utterly humiliates ash in a full battle I will be satisfied with the league.

    I'd like to think the Higaki League will use variations of battle styles, like single, one on one, double, rotation, triple, 6 on 6 etc.

    I hope he uses his Sinnoh pokemon. And I hope that his Gibble magically evolved into a Garchomp. :D

    Does anyone think (or know if) Ash will check in with Professor Oak like he normally does before a League?

    Think it would be good to see him, Tracey, and Mrs. Ketchum here.

    I've been doing some counting:

    Pikachu: 11
    Unfezant: 3
    Oshawott: 5
    Pignite: 8
    Snivy: 5
    Scraggy: 5
    Leavanny: 4
    Palpitoad: 3
    Boldore: 2
    Krookodile: 4

    Thease are known victories each of Ash's team has had in Best Wishes, every Pokemon they ever KO'd in an actual battle so this includes ties.

    Dosen't look to me like anyone other than Pikachu is read for this.

    Now look at rival Pokemon victories:

    Serperior: 8
    Emboar: 3 (It also managed to earn her first two gym badges on its own)
    Sawk: 4

    Also bear in mind that their trainers each earned 8 badges, probaly with their help. Finally, their trainers aren't even main characters, not appearing in most episodes, and they all beat some of Ash's. Seperior only outclassed by Pikachu.

    Its not as if Iris and Cilan's Pokemon have been stealing the wins:

    Axew: 1
    Excadrill: 3 (+99 when he was a Drillbur)
    Emolga: 3
    Dragonite: 2
    Pansage: 5
    Crustle: 6
    Stunfisk: 1

    My point being:

    Pikachu: 8
    Staraptor: 9
    Torterra: 10
    Buizel: 7
    Infernape: 19

    before the Sinnoh league, probaly more (I don't know DP as well as BW)

    In conclusion Ash's team is not ready for the league. Full stop

    Given the weak competition of this league compared to the Sinnoh League Ash was in previously, his crappy BW team could easily hang in the upcoming Unova League's top 8 at the very least.

    He's going to get Top 2 minimum if you use logic. Let's say Trip is for the Top 32, so:

    Trip: Top 32
    Bianca: Top 16
    Stephen: Top 8
    Kotetsu: Top 4
    Virgil: Top 2 or Winner


    If Ash battles all his rivals, then just going by logic even if he loses to Virgil he should still come in 2nd.
