Sawk is staring again, so shocking lol.
Eevee. C'est la vie.
I cannot actually believe this but color me surprised that Kotetsu would be the one to have the Hydreigon. After all who coulda guessed he would have it? Certainly not anyone who would apply some sort of logical thinking into this. I took into account the fact that Hydreigon is worthy of a Pokemon who could possibly be a repeat of how powerful Darkrai was in the Sinnoh League Tournament as well as the fact that this is the same dunderhead Kotetsu who thought that this League took place all the way in Johto. His personality seems more or less like Ash's which would lead me to believe that Kotetsu could be worthy of using or otherwise catching this particular Hydreigon. Also the fact that none of Ash league rivals in the past save for the person who ended up beating him(which was Tyson at the Hoenn League) have never used a psuedo-legend in any of the past league.
Using precedents and some logic,I came to the conclusion that there were only two possiblilities for this Hydreigon, either it was owned by a recurring COTD like Katherine or a Random COTD who woulda got beat in like 30-45 secs with it although I previously though it could also be owned by a mystery trainer ala Tobias. Now let me say that I don't generally approve of someone like Kotetsu using a Hydreigon as I feel he isn't worthy to be using it, especially since it just appeared in the league out of nowhere and we or at least I did not see it coming. Also because Kotetsu seems like an Ash 2.0 presonality-wise and seeing that Kotetsu in fact does have this Hydreigon, to me it is quite unfair that Kotetsu can get a Hydreigon while Ash can not get a Fully Evolved Psuedo-Legend. Where was the fully evolved Garchomp Ash coulda had at the Sinnoh League to combat Tobias' Darkrai. Seriously this turned Kotetsu from being the Morrison of the tournament to possibly being the Premiere DEM of the Unova League.
Short Version:Kotetsu owning this Hydreigon bugs me waayyy more than Iris catching Dragonite before the Junior Cup and plowing her way with it all the way to the top 4 of the Junior Cup with it alone.
Kotetsu having a Hydreigon is like Ash having a Charizard.
So Silktree was right all along about Hydreigon belonging to Kotetsu. So we know that by BW107, Trip, Bianca, and Stephan will be eliminated. In that case, Krookodile is probably Ash's third pokemon for the Stephan battle (since it is the pokemon featured in Dare Da? in BW106). Kotetsu and Virgil are the only two rivals left for Ash, but wow I never saw this coming. I guess the writers were running out of individual species for any of the recurring characters to have; I would have never imagined Stephan being given a Liepard and Kotetsu having a Hydreigon. I can see Ash winning the battle against Kotetsu, and then losing to Virgil during BW108 or BW109.
EDIT: Ash using Pignite against a Hydreigon. It better have learned some Fighting-type moves, or Ash's battle here will be completely pointless.
Metagross in the Hoenn League, and it was arguably his strongest pokemon (it effortlessly took down Swellow and Grovyle before losing to Pikachu). Yes, Kotetsu having a pseudo-legendary means that it will be particularly difficult for Ash to defeat him, but it doesn't mean that this isn't feasible. Ash has plenty of pokemon (Leavanny, Scraggy, Krookodile) that can inflict super-effective damage against Hydreigon. But I do wonder if this will be a 3-on-3 like the previous battle, or if this will be the first 6-on-6 battle in this league.
