I was watching Ash vs. Gary at the Silver Conference and I thought about this situation. In the anime, we see some deal with losses by accepting them and growing (like Ritchie), complaining and being pissed about it (Ash after he lost to Ritchie) or dealing with it in some other way.
Me personally, it would have to do with the battle itself. If it were a match where I and my opponent were going move for move and I lost. It wouldn’t feel so bad because I gave everything I had but I learned a lot from it. If I made a mistake that cost me the match I’d probably be hard on myself.
Though if it were a major tournament and I was so close to winning, but I lost don’t talk to me for a few days haha.
So, how would you deal with a loss?
