Oh good, no spoilers as yet to reveal who the champion is

Information courtesy of Dephender on Serebii

The finals ended up being a fight between Satoshi and Gladio. Satoshi's Melmetal got beaten by Silvady, but then Pikachu was sent out and defeated Silvady, and a battle between Pikachu and Zoroark began. Who will attain the glory of being the first ever champion of the Alola Pokémon League; Satoshi or Gladio?

I see they’re pulling the title bait again like they did in Kalos.

Well based on the summaries and titles of the next episode, its still open to debate on who will win

Deus ex Machina this match will probably be the Electrium Z becoming the Pikachu exclusive version

Well, at least we got some good battles out of the league over the last few episodes.
Here's hoping the Masked Royal match will be much better to make up for it

Ash is not going to win that’s obvious

Its still a possibility, would they dedicate a full episode to a full battle with Gladion and the Masked Royal?
I don’t see why not. We got a battle between Trip and Alder back in BW, so they could very well showcase a battle between Gladion and the Masked Royal here.

It could go either way, really.

True but that was just a 1 on 1 battle which lasted for about 5 minutes

There goes my hopes of having this league and season end on a decent note. Why the hell do they give key battles to that noob?

Except, Gladion has absolutely no connection to the Masked Royal, whereas Alder was pretty much someone Trip looked up to and genuinely wanted to face off against.

I'm not going to let the potential reboot teaser for September 29 fool me. Gladion stands at a 99% chance of winning, even if Ash gets another deus ex machina to his advantage. And besides, Guzzlord will likely interrupt the Gladion vs. Masked Royal battle.

There are going to be some very interesting memes after this episode airs I'm sure.

I can actually somewhat understand Melmetal losing to Silvally, since Silvally is technically a Legendary, but making it lose its first match after a significant power boost feels very anticlimactic after such an epic evolution. It better get some time to truly shine later.
