Re: Which one of Ash's battles satisfied you the most?
I always thought that Ash's battles in the Silver Conference were some of his best, especially the match between him and Gary. Not only were we treated to two of the most epic rivalries, Ash vs. Gary and Charizard vs. Blastoise, but we also got to see a lot of Ash's lesser-used Pokemon in action, and it was one battle where Pikachu wasn't used. It was also an excellent demonstration of how, in the Pokemon anime, type advantages and move effects aren't as static as the game makes them out to be.
