Ash later on had another rematch with Sawyer, but he lost when he and Greninja failed to transform. This seemed to leave Ash doubtful of his ability to master the transformation. Ash's confidence was shaken further after brutally losing to [[Wulfric]], the Snowbelle Gym Leader, who told Ash he didn't fully trust his Pokémon, which meant that he would be destined for failure. After seeing how badly Greninja got hurt during their battle and blaming himself for the loss, a depressed Ash left the Pokémon Center, into the cold night. The next day Serena met up with him and confronted him with how different from before he was, but Ash yelled at her out of depression. Before Serena left, she angrily threw snowballs in his face and told him that the way he was acting was the exact opposite of the Ash she had grown to care for. This caused Ash to realize that he was going about his depression the wrong way. Trying to get back on his feet, he then left further into the forest until a snowstorm forced him to hide in a cave, while a group of wild Pokémon watched on. This reminded Ash of one of his early field trips, when he was forced to hide in a tree trunk in a rainy forest. Ash then let the Pokémon join him in the cave, but left whan he saw a group of {{p|Spewpa}}, were almost falling off a tree over a cliff due to the storm. Ash nearly fell off the cliff helping them, but was saved by Greninja. When one Spewpa fell off anyway, Ash and Greninja fully synchronised their feelings and used the Ash-Greninja forme to save it. Ash then made amends with Greninja. Afterwards Ash returned to his friends and thanked Serena, telling her that without her he wouldn't have been able to get out of his depression and apologized for yelling at her. Greninja then gave its Pokéball to Ash, just as it had done back when it was a Froakie, and Ash and Greninja then vowed to start all over again. He then defeated Wulfric in a rematch, even after Wulfric Mega Evolved his Abomasnow. He then thanked his Pokémon and friends for helping him get this far, but reminded them that their greatest challenge was still to come, but that they would face it together.
Ash has earned eight Kalos Gym Badges, and therefore qualifies for participation in the Lumiose Conference. As of [[XY128]], Ash has qualified for the finals of the Conference following a narrow victory in the semi-finals against [[Sawyer]], and is scheduled to face his rival [[Alain]]. On the night before, he and his friends learned more about the Ash-Greninja form and he was visited by Lysandre while training to talk about before promising to talk to him about it after the League.
