Absolutely. I've had a lot of time to reflect on that and it's led me to that same conclusion. I highly doubt that the other two soulless nobodies in the semis had a chance against Ash, not with his unpredictable set of reserves.I didn't mind how things played out with Tobias in DP. We all know Ash was never going to win (thanks to the powers that be), so just considering that it took someone using a legendary team to beat our boy (with him defeating two of them at that) left me strangely satisfied. The way I saw it, the fact that they used a trainer as powerful as Tobias to stop Ash's Sinnoh League run was, in a way, an acknowledgement and reflection of Ash's strength and overall growth up to that point.
We can't forget this: Ash beat that Darkrai and later pushed one of those unseen five reserves to a draw with Pikachu alone, while Tobias's final opponent was destroyed 6-0. That's a great showing.
