Top Ten Pokemon Anime Battles
The Top Ten
After the final collision of thunder punch and flare blitz, how was the audience still alive
Best of the Best, and infernape's finish with blaze was amazing
The best Pokemon anime battle of all time, hands down. - Kiteretsunu
The entire fight was so epic. Infernape was the main star of the battle instead of pikachu. Every single match up was perfect.
All that Ash worked for throughout the first series (seasons 1-5) led to this epic showdown.
Amazing battle - boltslegend
A lot of strategy and planning went into this battle by Paul.
Utter sweep. Would've been better if it was 1 on 1.
Ash got destroyed
Pretty good - boltslegend
Regardless of whether or not ash lost it was an amazing Pokemon battle for me. - HeavyDonkeyKong
The battle was well fought but the outcome was as expected just like the rematch.
Awful ash lost again in kalos league episode 38 xyzzy not aired in English yet
To short - boltslegend
Defiantly not The battle with Alain...(A PIKACHU took out a METAGROSS and a TYRANITER! )sawyer's aegishash is awesome in that battle...Slaking was annoying and boring though... but another an that it's awesome.
Mandi got swept by the rookie krabby - boltslegend
The skill displayed was legendary, it was a bit defensive though.
Ah what a joke - boltslegend
Pikachu vs mega gyrados was awesome!
Hope you guys like this match
The match that finally won him a league and made him a Pokemon master
A truly epic fight especially the clash between their lycanroc dusk (ash) and lycanroc midnight (gladion)
The best contest battle in the anime. To bad Serena isn't doing these she would actually be interesting to watch
Good match although Dawn should have won. - egnomac
Very good - boltslegend
I think this battle was amazing - especially since it’s a contest battle, which means that the Pokémon aren’t just attacking to faint each other. The combination moves were really good too. In my opinion, this is the best contest battle, and I favour contest battles over normal battles, so I think this is the best one. The outcome was so annoying, though...
Ash vs Tobias was a lot better than Ash vs Gary Stu
To boring - boltslegend
The epitome of epic Pokemon battle.
No. Came down to meowth and pikachu - boltslegend
Great battle where noctowl really owned everyone - ChargedBow
Greninja is stronger than Diantha's Mega Gardevoir. Nobody expected that.
It's a cool battle where Ash goes up against a Frontier Brain. Not only do Bulbasaur and Squirtle return to Hoenn, but Pikachu takes down a legendary pokemon, Regice.
This battle had the best in-battle story. Definitely top 5 for me. But I just don't understand why nobody cares about Morrison. I loved many things about this battle like Girafrig vs Corphish was a total masterpiece storytelling, Growlithe consoling Morrison was such an emotional scene, Grovyle Leaf Blading through Steelix's Dragon Rage was so badass! This battle had a lot in it. And to me the titles of the episodes (A Judgement Brawl, Choose It or Lose It) speaks a lot.
First full battle in the series - boltslegend
A nice long battle
It is going to be epic battle
that all pokemon fans waited for
Never happened but yeah. I don’t actually think Tobias made it past Lucien in the champion league because Cynthia was still the sinnoh champ in rival destiny - boltslegend
Simple and strategic
Good battle - boltslegend
That battle was AMAZING ash's level one trillion Pikachu vs a level 5 snivy and the snivy wins out of nowhere. WHAT AN UPSET.
by the way this was a joke I just want to see how high this one will go - Plasma
Ash vs bugsy is so incredible match because there is only bug type pokemon battles and in the final ash cyndaquill defeat bugsy scyther
Severely underrated battle. Ash and Charizard battle Entei in the air majority of the time. It’s cool seeing them work together in such an abnormal battle.
