I still hope Ash to win this league, he has been on more adventure than all other trainers and HE has been the one who fought with so many villainous groups.
Unless you are going to tell me Team Plasma disappeared because Virgil crushed the team single-handedly.
N appearing doesn't mean he appear as the King of Team Plasma, he could be an individual who sought to release Pokemon fom human.

Ash is probably going to win now.
N will likely invite him to a trainer castle after he wins.
If Ash were to win the league, wouldn't he enter the champions league? I seem to recall you mentioning this numerous times. And since we now know that the plot after the league involves N and the rockets, it would seem that a champion league is not on the way, which suggests Ash does not win.
Ash will most likely lose to Virgil in either the top 8 or top 4 match, depending on whether the preliminary is counted as the 1st round or not. It is highly unlikely that they will skip a full 6 v 6 match, definitely not 2 of them. And if they did, who would Ash face? Random Cotd's?
Since the N plot begins sometime in January, and BW107 airs on the 20th of December, we can assume that the league will go until around BW110/111. BW108 to conclude the Kotetsu battle, and then another couple to conclude the league, most likely with a 6 v 6 against Virgil. Not really enough time for 2 Full battles, definitely not enough for 3.
There's also footage of Eevee battling a Druddigon, and it looks pretty strong
Ash would be lucky to make it to the Top 4.
I get that people want Ash to win the League, but all signs point to it not happening
Of course, some people will just argue that two COTD battles may be skipped so that Ash can face Virgil in the finals. So I'll ask in advance: Why would the writers make Trip, Stephan and Kotetsu battle Ash in the earlier rounds if they wanted Ash to go all the way to the finals? In the previous leagues, only one or two of the early rounds were skipped.
eevee team. Clearly he has skills
If anything, N's appearance in the anime makes it even more obvious that he'll lose to Virgil. I don't think that they would announce the next arc for January if Ash had won the Unova League. If this new arc didn't come up until January and was going to start in February instead, then that would be a better argument for Ash winning the league. As it is, it looks like Ash will lose to Virgil, which isn't much of a shock given how he does fit the typical role of the League rival Ash becomes friends with and eventually defeats him.

There is only one trainer that could beat Satoshi and win this tournament:
- Satoshi/Ash Ketchum: 801 episodes
- Team Rocket: 736 episodes
- Takeshi/Brock: 633 episodes
- Kasumi/Misty: 282 episodes
- Hikari/Dawn: 201 episodes
- Haruka/May: 197 episodes
- Masato/Max: 192 episodes
- Iris: 141 episodes
- Dent/Cilan: 138 episodes
- Kenji/Tracey: 44 episodes
Ash Vs. Virgil is for the Top 4, but if a skipped match is there it will be the finals.
Let me break it down for you since you seem to be having problems understanding this:
First Round: Ash vs. Trip (Top 128)
Second Round: Ash vs. COTD, Bianca vs. Kotetsu (Top 64)
Third Round: Ash vs. Stephan (Top 32)
Fourth Round: Ash vs. Kotetsu (Top 16)
