XY131: Kalos League Victory! Saotshi's Greatest Decisive Battle!
Airs: August 18
Airs: August 18
That's what I believe as well. I believe that once the Team Flare arc is over, they will celebrate Ash's win in the Kalos League and celebrating the heroes that saved Kalos from Team Flare (like in the games?)The title itself implies there will be a victor in this episode, so there will be no interruption and the battle will be concluded.
Team Flare MAY interrupt the celebration ceremony however.
From the second image.Alain: A Mega Evolution Trainer that constantly searches for formidable opponents
Alain has traveled the world for the sole purpose of fighting strong opponents. When he met Ash, he was captivated by his enjoyment of battling and resolved to participate in the Kalos League, Ash being his target there. He has now been winning his way through the league with his overwhelming strength. But just when will the match against Ash that he's looking so forward to come...?
Mega Charizard X: In both their two previous battles, this has been the rival that has prevented Ash and Greninja's victory. It is Alain's partner and the two of them are always together.
Weavile: It is, of course, extremely quick, but its moves, like "Double Team" and "Night Slash", are also very powerful!
Tyranitar: In addition to being strong, it also uses its Ability "Sand Stream" to give itself further advantages in battle.
"I have to be the strongest! I will no longer lose to anyone!!"
Ash: Heading for the top together with the friends he believes in
The power to be at an understanding with their Pokémon is indispensable to all Trainers. Ash, however, has the limitless "power to befriend Pokémon". Will he be able to reach his goal of league victory with Pikachu and the ultimate five-man band he's met on his journey in the Kalos region!?
Ash Greninja: Ash and Greninja demonstrate the bond between Trainer and Pokémon with this form, which differs from Mega Evolution. At the end of the day, Ash is an unconventional Trainer.
Hawlucha: Cool and stylish! Hawlucha's forte is to entertain the audience while also delivering results!
Goodra: While it was a crybaby as a Goomy, it has now grown up and become strong-willed. It stakes everything on a single hit from "Bide".
Pikachu: Ash's first companion. Its strength is on par with its desire to make it to the top!
Noivern: At first Noibat couldn't even fly, but now it's become a big and reliable guy!
Talonflame: Evolved from Fletchling. It has played a major role in all the Gym matches in the entire region. It delivers preemptive attacks from the sky!
"Now that I've come this far, I only have one thought in my head! For us to win this ultimate battle"
Seems like I was right on Alain's mentality. He is too focus on strength and winning to realize where the true power of Pokémon lies. This is the same mentality seen in Ash during the four Ash Greninja trials arc, when he had too much focus on mastering Ash Greninja power and winning battles to prove to his protege/student. This will be Alain's weakness and downfall in the League."I have to be the strongest! I will no longer lose to anyone!!"
Or maybe Ash wins, challenges the E4 and continues to travel while the anime introduces a new protagonist.This is really toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo late. Why do we have to wait for 20 years for this to come? In Real-Life, when someone is really eager to obtain something, 10 year is already more than enough to get it, or at least set oneself up to the status of one step before the goal, provided one is truly eager to put effort into it. From my POV, Ash certainly is not an endeavoring hard-working person to be look up to.
But regardless of whatever my view on Ash's characteristics, I agree partially with @Neo Blaze that it will or most probably be a massive disappointment later on. Not because of the league result nor Team Flare nor whatever in the anime. But it is just the fact that, when Ash had performed so good where he finally win a league (not yet confirmed, but still >90% possibility), how should the anime do then in the next gen? Proceed to Champion League? Making Ash befriend Arceus? Whatever it may be, audience will then only expect something better, not something worse than previous.
That's why, I think next gen can become very disappointing, because I don't think anime can make Ash nor his story be something much much MUCH more better than now.
