Seems like we've got at most five episodes left of the league (given that the N arc is due to start on Januray 17th. Going by that...
December 6th: Kibago gets friggin' lost again!
December 13th: Satoshi vs. Kenyan
December 20th: Satoshi vs. Kotetsu
December 27th: Break
January 3rd: What I'm guessing will Satoshi vs. Virgil
Januray 10th: League wrap-up
Going by that, Satoshi will make at least the Top 8. If there's a quick, mostly off-screen match next week then he'll make it to the Top 4. But sadly, it seems the chances of Satoshi actually winning this league have plummeted in my opinion.
But hey, at least we're getting a Kibago episode next week. Isn't it nice that even in the league Iris can steal screen time from the main character (!)
Is there really a break on the 27th? I find it hard to believe that Ash vs. Kotetsu will just be one episode. Either that, or Ash vs. Virgil will be one episode (in which case, I probably won't be surprised).
The N episodes premier on the 17th of Jan. BW107 airs on the 20th of Dec. That ep is the start of the Kotetsu battle. That is a round 4 battle which is the top 16. If there is a break on the 27th, that leaves 2 more eps for the league, one on the 3rd, one on the 10th. 2 eps is not enough time for Ash to beat 3 opponents in full battles and win the league, keeping in mind that the start of BW108 will most likely be the conclusion of the Kotetsu battle. 3 episodes wouldn't be enough for that. There would have to be 2 skipped/rushed 6 v 6 battles battles for Ash to face Virgil in the final, since it makes no sense for Ash to beat a COTD in the final. That would be a horrible way to conclude the league and for Ash to get his 1st league win. And if there are 2 skipped battles, who the hell is he supposed to face? They're not going to have 2 full COTD battles after the Kotetsu battle against randoms, since that would make them seem more important than Kotetsu. If they had wanted Ash to Progress further, they would have left his rivals until later in the league or lowered the number of competitors or had more rushed battles earlier on.
All signs point to Ash not winning, and most likely ending with a Top 8 spot.
Ash loosing in top 8 this series is fitting considering his character development did go backwards this season.
Compared to Ash loosing to Virgil for an Eevee promotion the idea of Ash loosing to a Darakrai character coming out of no where doesn't seem as I thought it was.

Also, the idea of losing to a Darkrai is ironic. I mean, he must have nightmares about "I COULD'VE WON THAT **** NGHHHHH NOW LOOK AT ME MAN"
Again, unless Ash loses to Kotetsu..he is going to get Top 4:
Prelims - Top 128: Ash vs Trip
Round 1 - Top 64 (This is considered R1 by the summaries): Ash vs CoTD
Round 2 - Top 32: Ash vs CoTD/Stephan
Round 3 - Top 16: Ash vs CoTD/Stephan
Round 4 - Top 8: Ash vs Kotetsu (confirmed)
the bad point is that Eevelutions are soooo old fashioned... lose against the dog whisperer would be so anticlimatic (even more if Pikachu loses against Eevee... would be like a Hoenn league 2 ¬¬ damn cat ... ) would be funny if Ash was on track to win the league, and TP interrupts the final battle as happens in BW XD ...
FIRMA EN OBRAS, ESPEREN Y CALLENSE!!! D:< XD
