Originally I'd say that Satoshi's chances of winning'd be next to 0%, but since SM broke so many patterns and became almost a whole new show, I guess his chances increased? In real I can see both of them as the champion.

Maybe his victory'll lead to the yet-to-be-revealed new saga and that's why they're making other changes? Like calling it only Pocket Monsters and featuring all previous reagions...

Which of them will win?! The first ever champion of the Alola Pokémon League will finally be determined!! Will Satoshi win his first ever Pokémon League?!
At least we can confirm that the writers DO consider this an official Pokemon League.

Huh, I notice that they are really trying to sell the fact that Ash hasn't won a League yet. Not even Kalos had that:

Summary: Ash and Alan's fierce battle finally concludes!! But those guys from Team Flare have been doing something fishy behind the scenes!?
Blurb: Ash's Greninja and Alan's Mega Charizard fight! But which of them will win and dominate the Kalos League!?

--

The fierce fight continues on in the Kalos League finals match between Ash and Alan. This battle where neither of them yield an inch to the other gets more and more heated! And then the conclusion finally arrives: When the fierce fight concludes, will it be Ash or Alan that holds the laurels of the Kalos League victory in their hands?

After a long fight, the conclusion of the heated Kalos League finals begins to arrive. But behind the scenes, the fishy schemes of Team Flare start up.

But behind the scenes of this excited final, the mysterious team Team Flare start acting.

Looking back, I just realized these summaries never emphasized the fact that Ash has never won a Pokémon League beforehand.

Pikachu vs. Zoroark looks like it's going to be good; I am surprised that Gladion's going for a Z-Move with Zoroark in lieu of Lycanroc, with it being Never-Ending Nightmare nonetheless!

And since when did Gladion get a Ghostium-Z? From a Totem Mimikyu or Greedy Rapooh?
Oh the joys of off-screen adventures, would certainly have been better to watch than say SM126

My theory is it could be the Z-Crystal he earned from Hapu

Seriously, Zoroark's Z move is probably going to miss as well? Z moves either miss or do nothing.

After a surprisingly good episode with SM138, I'm more excited to see how Junichi Fujisaku does with this one

Never thought I would say that during his battle episodes

He goes up against Masked Royal

With the next series seeing multiple regions featured, this could be Ash's final series
Wish is Ash's final series. He needs to go now. Freaking over 20 years already and they should replaced Ash with another protagonist.
