Top Ten Pokemon Anime Battles

The Top Ten
1 Ash vs Paul (Lily of the Valley)

Everything in this fight was amazing. Paul and Ash were dead opposites and hated each other in a insane rivalry the whole series even Paul and ashes other battles did good leading up. Then this battle came. From spanning across 3 episodes to the last 2 pokemon. Paul believed weak Pokémon we’re always going to be weak and had no use. Then his abandoned chimchar takes out electravire. Changing everything Paul knows. This is hands down the best battle there is

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

I'm really happy that both if my favorite battles are in the top 2. Goes to show people have a good taste in battles

After the final collision of thunder punch and flare blitz, how was the audience still alive

2 Ash vs Gary (Johto League)

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

Amazing battle

3 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

4 Ash vs Noland
5 Ash vs Claire
6 Ash vs Volkner
7 Ash vs Blaine (Rematch)
8 Ash vs Alan

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

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

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

Great battle

9 Ash vs Candice
10 Paul vs Barry
The Contenders
11 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.

12 Ash vs Mandi

Mandi got swept by the rookie krabby

13 Ash vs Tobias

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

14 Metapod vs Metapod (Episode 4)

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

Ah what a joke

15 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)

16 Ash vs Kukui (Exhibition Match)

The epitome of epic Pokemon battle.

17 Dawn vs Zoey (Grand Festival)

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...

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.

18 Ash vs Misty (Alola)

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

19 Ash vs Diantha

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

20 Ash vs Tyson

No. Came down to meowth and pikachu

21 Diagla vs Palkia vs Giratina
22 Grant vs Viola
23 Ash vs Morty

Great battle where noctowl really owned everyone

24 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.

25 Red vs Alan
