I was going to go for a 1, but then I thought the Stephan battle was quite good, so I gave it a 3. Overall this league has been the worst out of the lot, and is up there with the JWC as worst tournament this saga. Ash lost to a complete idiot, who only brought 5 pokes with him, and threw out 2 pokes with 4x weaknesses to be slaughtered. This was basically a 6 v 3, and he still lost. Then Cameron goes on to lose to Virgil, only managing to beat half of his team. Seriously, that just makes Ash look even worse. Having Ash not battle Virgil was a mistake. Only Pikachu, Pignite, Krookodile and Scraggy got on screen wins, and Scraggy's was a rushed end of battle thing against a Darumaka FFS. Palpitoad got a draw, and Leavanney battled well, and everyone else lost. They had a fucking filler about Axew in the middle, seriously what the fuck was that about? They skipped 2 of Ash's rounds, which we could have seen if we didn't have the Axew filler, the league was only 6 eps total, 1 less than Sinnoh, and that included an epic 3 parter. They ended the main rivalry of the saga, after trying to build up Trip as a powerful trainer in the JWC, with a freaking 1 v 1 in the 1st round. ughhggghhhhggghhggghh!!!
Honestly, I wish Paul was there, he would have absolutely destroyed everyone. And so would have Sinnoh Ash for that matter.
It actually hurts my brain that a league could be written this badly after all these years
