Tie between Silver Conference & Ever Grande Conference. So many great battles in both, but EG had more focus on the individual Pokemon giving them each a chance to battle while Silver had focus on some particular Pokemon instead of equally sharing the spotlight.
I liked the Indigo League.. except when Richie turned up. He just annoyed me alot tbh.

I have to say Sinnoh. They made just about every battle important, and not just a random COTD battle. I know that some of the random battles from before were a sight to see. (Bellsprout girl from Kanto and Katie from Hoenn seem to stand out) I can see why a lot of people would like Hoenn, as double battles are where we often see the more interesting tactics used, where pokemon work together and combinations are often seen. It's also the most impressive feat Ash has had without using his reserves. Sinnoh, however, not only shows the power of his Sinnoh team, but of most of his reserves as well. It shows us for perhaps the first time that Ash has what it takes to go all the way. For now, Sinnoh has to be the best, but Hoenn may be a close second. (Sorry, Johto fans. I love the ideas and at least three of the battles there, but the writers just get better with the leagues as time passes)

The Lilly of the Valley conference. I absolutely loved it. Every match was interesting. Ash vs. Conway, Paul, and Tobias. Tobias was quite the opponent for Ash.

The league I enjoyed the most was the Lily of the Valley Conference. I think all the battles in it ranged from okay (Nando) to fantastic (Conway, Paul) with the exception of Ash's battle against Tobias. My main criticism with it, though, is that it should have included double battles like the Ever Grande Conference did. That way, more of Ash's older Pokémon would have been showcased, and Torterra could have even gotten a win (which is another complaint of mine).
The Ever Grande Conference would be my next pick because of the double battles and Ash's battle against Katy. Morrison isn't one of my favorite characters, but what the writers did during his battle with Ash was out of the ordinary, and I'm glad the writers experimented with something new (a trainer not wanting to battle their own friend). However, the repetitiveness of only having Ash's Hoenn team battle got to me. In addition, Ash's battle with Tyson was a little underwhelming but good overall.
The Silver Conference was okay, but had some major flaws; what I really liked was the character development Gary received (as sudden as it was). My biggest concern with it was that in most of the battles, the Johto starters were overshadowed by their predecessors (Squirtle taking a win from Totodile, Bulbasaur taking a win from Cyndaquil, Charizard taking a win from Bayleef). The battles were pretty good otherwise. I liked the introduction of the final evolutionary form of a Hoenn starter being Ash's downfall in this league as it was something unique and never done before.
The Indigo Plateau Conference is my least favorite, mainly for short and/or unimpressive battles. Ash's battle against Mandi was alright in terms of looks; Krabby/Kingler's DEM was a little jarring, though. His next two battles were too short for me to get into them. The battle with Janette was quite lovely and to this date is the only battle in which Muk receives a win. The Ritchie battle was pretty bad, but I'll give the writers credit for allowing Ash to lose in a somewhat non-conventional way (even if it was unfair).
Hopefully the leagues continue improving as the writers do.
The battle between Katie and Ash was really amazing, and is probably the most intelligent opponent ash has faced when it comes to strategy.
I always like the Johto League. I know there was too many fillers, but the writers really give the Pokemon play time, instead of all training and no fun. Ash, Misty and Brock bring all the Pokemon out, to swim, or play with a beach ball or just have an afternoon nap, which they do not do much anymore.
Do not ask me that you have a chance to be a mod, I will not take the job if it is to leave the forum.

Ever Grande had some great battles that weren't just the last few battles. The Suzuran league could have been amazing since he was bringing back all of his pokemon, but they had to rush it and give pretty much no pokemon any time to actually shine. Like half of them got freeze frames and that was it. It was a huge cockslap for them to bring back all of his pokemon and get us pumped, and have Cyndaquil evolve, and then they busted their load and dropped the ball. I wasn't even bothered by Takuto. I enjoyed that battle, and while it was pretty cheap, it really didn't bother me one bit. I came to the conclusion he wasn't going to win long before that and figured the way they did it was actually interesting. The minute Latios flew out of that pokeball I, and I'm sure pretty much everyone else watching, was totally taken by surprise.
I think Quilava's 10 second battle was the biggest fuck up of an evo I'd ever seen.
