Never bet on Ash, or in general for that matter.

Saddest part is, even if he wins, it's with a big asterisk since I frankly don't take the Alola League seriously. It feels like a bigger joke than the Orange League.

One Piece Era...it's betting time!

As you may know if you've been keeping up with current Pokemon events, Ash Ketchum is currently competing in the Alola Pokemon League. And three years after his defeat in the Kalos League final, some people, myself included, think that Ash is definitely winning the league this time.

It's been an fun tournament so far and after a scare in the quarter-finals, Ash is now in the semi-finals with his two rivals and an antagonist:


Now that all the chumps have been weeded out and only the heavyweights remain, the tournament is finally getting really interesting. So it's time to bet!

There's already a bet being put in place in the thread linked above but so far, not many are joining in and the stakes don't seem to have been properly established. There's also a surprising lack of official entrants who believe Ash will lose. That's why I want to setup a bet of our own here, with stakes unique to this thread.

THE OPTIONS ARE THE FOLLOWING:
  • Ash will win the Alola Pokemon League (what I'm betting on)
  • Ash will lose the Alola Pokemon League
THE STAKES:

For me and me alone:

If I guessed wrong and "Ash will lose the Alola Pokemon League" is true, then...FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON who bet correctly, I will wear the following avatar (or whatever else ends up being the final pick in that thread) for A MONTH:

I repeat, for every person who guesses correctly that Ash loses the league, I will wear this for a month (so two victors = 2 months, 10 victors = 10 months) but I'm capping it at 12mo/1year. Every additional winner past that adds 1 week to my punishment.

For people who incorrectly guess "Ash will win the Alola Pokemon League":
You will wear the avatar above (or whatever else replaces it in that thread) for 1 week.

For people who incorrectly guess "Ash will lose the Alola Pokemon League":
You have to read the manga Black Clover up to the most recent released chapter when the Alola Pokemon League is over, with no obligation to read past that point.



So these are the stakes. These are unique to this thread and not tied to the ones in the other Ash thread. Entering the bet here means nothing for the other side so you don't have to worry about another set of stakes.


What will you do? Do you believe in Ash Ketchum finally winning a Pokemon League? Have you lost all faith in Ash? Do you just want to add to my potential punishment?

Bet!!
I stopped watching the anime, how bad is the Alola League?
On its own merit, it's not bad at all. It's an interesting setup and the fights are fun. It's just not the same kinda league as the previous ones since Alola as no gym system. So the previous matches didn't match up to the intensity of prior leagues. But now all the scrubs are out and the only ones who remain are the ones who've been actually taking battling seriously for the whole series.

Yea I wouldn't say it's terrible or anything, just that I don't take it seriously, especially coming off of Kalos. This isn't the league win I envisioned.

Ash will get to the finals and it will be interrupted by some bullshit

Yup.
Stunner911 look I get it. I was Rebecca'd too. Many of us were. But that was a long time ago and we gotta take brave little baby steps. So that we can become whole again. So that we can find purpose again. Sooner or later, you gotta move on...you gotta move on. Otherwise, we should've stayed Rebecca'd forever.

That's fine. If you don't think he'll win and bet, it's not your avatar that's at stake anyway.

Noted.



And finally the bet is made interesting because before Abu stepped up and all we had were you other "Never bet on Ash but never bet against him either" cowards, I basically had nothing to lose at all considering if no one bet against Ash, I wouldn't have had to wear the avatar even if he lost.

Here's how things stand so far:

TEAM ASH WILL WIN:
Silfer (me)
Chase
TheTyrant
AgentLampshade
Blackleg-sanji1
Stunner911

TEAM ASH WILL LOSE:
Abu

ayo what I thought the three dots you had under team lose before meant there were a lot of people betting against Ash and you didn’t have enough time to write them all down

don’t do me like this silfer i can’t do this alone 😭😭

When is the episode btw?
We don't know yet but semi-finals start next week. Maybe those get done in one ep maybe not but we've got at least 2 weeks.
(And I would guess 4 weeks at most)

Too late. It's been noted!
Also it's fucking Ash. Relax

Really weird when you actually see it like that huh

team ash is a loser gary rocks
This an official entry?
I'll change over if all I had to do was watch like the first 10 episodes of the anime Silfer
Nah, those 10 episodes suck and I wouldn't even subject anyone to that as punishment for a bet. And the point in part is to get people into Black Clover, which those 10 eps would be the absolute worst thing for.
Anyway, if I let you change sides, I'd have to let Abu too and I can't. Once you've been noted, you've been noted.

(Though incidentally, if 10 episodes = 3-4 hours then in that same amount time you'd actually get really far in the manga. It really is a surprisingly quick read and I've seen many catch up quick)
