Leon is obnoxiously overpowered. With how much Cynthia and Steven's aces struggled against Ash, Leon's team is disgusting as it implies his Dragapult and Inteleon are on the level of the other champ's aces.

I'm pretty confident that if Ash has Dragonite, Pikachu, and Dracovish alive versus Charizard, he'll be able to pull out a win.

Thoughts so far: the battle itself is good, one of the best I have ever seen and with the potential to be the best.

Everything else is not very good. The hinted cameos are just Journeys character of the day types: Go should be here. All of Ash’s companions and rivals should be in the stands. ALL of Ash’s Pokémon should be in the stands with Deliah and Oak:::: not watching on tv.

Battle itself is 10/10. The other issues bring it it to a 9/10

No way, the Ash v Leon battle is total butt.

HE DID IT!

After 25 years, Ash has done it!

Part FOUR of this battle was just.... everything....

Like I said, I enjoyed this battle in itself just fine, but I didn't like the lack of his friends being there or seeing all of his Pokemon.

But the pan out to all of his friends, Pikachu dreaming (?) of the support it got from all of it's Poke-buddies, AND Team Rocket crying with pride like some proud (abusive) parents.

THIS WAS A PERFECT EPISODE! The original Mesaze score, Pikachu being the one to get the win, the way they psyched us out TWICE thinking Leon won, using the bleeping STADIUM to battle on.....

Yes, this is the best battle in the franchise.

I will write a more thorough review later.

My day was made.

Oh, and this definitely lines up with the next three titles which suggests this is the end of Ash's journey :p

Might want to spoiler that.

I'm too busy these days so I didn't follow the finals that much, but I'll say it's something of a surprise.

Not sure where Pokemon goes from here. The logical conclusion is a timeskip + ending.

Beautiful episode. Tear inducing. Amazing battle and recognition of characters along the journey.

Best quality battle in the series, probably the most meaningful since Ash vs. Gary.

I saw the clips reposted on Twitter. I haven't watched the anime in years but damn, they got me with this one haha. I didn't think I had any emotional attachment to Ash anymore but apparently I do. Good for them for making the moment so satisfying.

Your not the only person who has said that. ESPECIALLY with the cameos of all the past human characters and the vision of the past Pokemon on various teams, this battle welcomed an open hand to all fans

I saw it. I give it an 8/10. I think everyone's overrating it too much.

It's easily the best animated episode in the series, and a great moment for Pikachu and some tingles callbacks, but again...it's Pikachu versus a Charizard, versus a literal dandy who didn't exist before 2019. Ash doesn't have as much of a history with Leon as he did with Kukui, or even Cynthia, who he's known for 15 years in real time now.

What it does is it vindicates Alola somewhat since a lot of people looked down on Alola as a backwater region with an amateur league nobody watched or knew about. I also dislike that the Z-Move fizzled against Gigantamax Charizard, I wish the Z-Move had killed Cinderace through Libero and allowed Pikachu to fight Gigantamax Charizard with no gimmicks. For a writing team that has a lot of sincere affection for Alola, it was a disappointing showing.

Thats disappointing to hear :/ especially since I have been harder on this tournament than you. For me this episode was an 11 out of 10, best battle in the franchise, and best way to put Ash out to pasture. Oh well.

At least three more episodes to go!
