    Is there any way to watch that livestream they're doing of the episode?

    That only reaffirms my belief Ash will win. Combined with the fact we haven't had any further episode titles revealed, this has "series finale" written all over it.

    Preview JN132: The Finals IV: "Partner"

    I’ve seen some leaks on Reddit suggesting that Ash will win, but I’m not sure how seriously to take them.

    Are you saying "There's no way, Ash will lose" or "there's no way Ash will lose"? Very different things.

    Well, in the original series, the "rules" for what the anime did and didn't do hadn't really been set in stone yet. You didn't really see Ash getting gym badges without defeating the gym leader in question after Kanto. There was Wattson, admittedly, but Ash still defeated him even if Pikachu was...

    Not to mention, the writers are clearly, on some level, aware of how unpopular the Kalos League loss was. That's why they brought Alain back just to have him go down like a chump against Leon. For them to then repeat Ash's performance against Alain with Leon would be odd, to say the least.

    I seriously doubt they'd go to that trouble for an episode where Ash loses.

    Preview JN132: The Finals IV: "Partner"

    That's actually one of the reasons that, despite my reservations, I think Ash might still win. The writers-- or at least some of them--know Alain's victory was unpopular with the show's older fans, hence why they had him go down so easily against Leon. Considering how much this battle resembles...

    Has there ever been any other time where Ash managed to win when he was down to his last Pokemon, while his opponent still had two left?

    Preview JN132: The Finals IV: "Partner"

    That's assuming there is going to be a Gen 9 anime. For all we know, this is the finale to the whole thing, all 25 seasons of it.
