Arceus, help us all.
I wonder what kind of ridiculous gag-like 'plot twist' he has in store for this episode. Oh I know, what if this is actually a full battle and Ash only brings one Pokemon? Gotta make kids laugh and fill the quota of face faults after all...
This, pretty much. There hasn't really been anything that could allow anyone to compare both moves in the anime in a way that makes one look significantly more powerful than the other. It just seems like they use 10,000,000 V T-bolt for a grander effect while also using a game move referencing the anime, otherwise using Gigavolt Havoc would have been just as serviceable. Not denying it could use an in-universe explanation, but even if it hasn't happened yet, it doesn't mean it won't get one later on. It happening on the league could definitely lead to the concept being explored further since it will be the first time it will be seen by the few characters that could have some idea of what is actually going on, aka. the Kahunas and maybe Kukui.There's really no functional difference between Ash finishing with Gigavolt Havoc or finishing with 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt. The latter just looks cooler.
Maybe it'll be like the Lana trial episode and not be terrible. My hopes aren't particularly high especially after the last episode, but it's at least possible that it won't be a total garbage fire, right?
It can't be 6v6 because Ash only has 5 and Gladion only has 4. The highest it can go is 4v4.
That is true but Ash does have Poipole that could return from its home world due to some friendship crap or whatever and help Ash with its battle!
Also, Ash unlike the other trainers in Alola has the luxury of calling Professor Oak for a Pokémon to help him out if they choose to go that route!
Gladion can always get Pokémon given to him for his full battle against Ash, especially a Pokémon from his team in the games hence why filling up Gladion’s team shouldn't be an issue!
Anyways we never knew what other Pokémon Ash's other rivals had with them (apart from their main Pokémon) until they were sent out to battle. So why would this time be any different?
It’s not like the writers have never randomly introduced or given certain Pokémon or moves to characters off-screen without explaining why or how it happened, if it means we get a full battle then I’m cool!
Paul used a completely different team of 6 in his Sinnoh League battle with Electivire being the only constant.. Alain only used Charizard and Metang against Ash before they met in the Kalos League, Sawyer only used 3 Pokémon and we only saw Cameron use 3 Pokémon with him before they had their full battle in Unova
I get why you would think that a full battle wouldn’t happen but I believe that it would be cheap for Alola to be the only region without a full battle
We literally saw Gladion's entire team the episode right before the league. Aside from the Zoroark he obtained in that episode, Umbreon, Lycanroc, and Silvally are still all he's got.
It could still be potentially 5 vs 5 if they make it so that Gladion actually owns his Ride Noivern (which they very well could do, since there's nothing stopping them from doing it).
