Top Ten Pokemon Anime Battles

The Top Ten

Ash vs Paul (Lily of the Valley)

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.

The entire fight was so epic. Infernape was the main star of the battle instead of pikachu. Every single match up was perfect.

Ash vs Gary (Johto League)

All that Ash worked for throughout the first series (seasons 1-5) led to this epic showdown.

Amazing battle

Ash vs Paul (Lake Acuity)

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

Ash vs Noland
Ash vs Claire
Ash vs Volkner
Ash vs Blaine (Rematch)

Pretty good

Ash vs Alan

Regardless of whether or not ash lost it was an amazing Pokemon battle for me.

The battle was well fought but the outcome was as expected just like the rematch.

Great battle

Awful ash lost again in kalos league episode 38 xyzzy not aired in English yet

Ash vs Candice
Paul vs Barry

To short

The Contenders

Ash vs. Sawyer (League Battle)

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.

Ash vs Mandi

Mandi got swept by the rookie krabby

Metapod vs Metapod (Episode 4)

The skill displayed was legendary, it was a bit defensive though.

Ah what a joke

Dawn vs Zoey (Grand Festival)

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.

Very good

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

Ash vs Tobias was a lot better than Ash vs Gary Stu

To boring

Ash vs Misty (Alola)

Pikachu vs mega gyrados was awesome!
Hope you guys like this match

Ash vs Gladion (Alola League)

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)

Ash vs Kukui (Exhibition Match)

The epitome of epic Pokemon battle.

Ash vs Tyson

No. Came down to meowth and pikachu

Diagla vs Palkia vs Giratina


Grant vs Viola
Ash vs Morty

Great battle where noctowl really owned everyone

Ash vs Diantha

Greninja is stronger than Diantha's Mega Gardevoir. Nobody expected that.

Ash vs Brandon

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.

Red vs Alan
