How come Ash never has to battle the Elite 4

He encounters random elite members during the journeys, but the Elite 4 was something made almost exclusively for the pokemon games. In the anime it'd be similar to battling gym leaders if it was official matches, and personally I think 8 leaders per region is more than enough. So ash just encounters them randomly during the show, gets pwned/doesn't even battle, and life goes on.

Agatha never really appeared (as an Elite member). An old woman by the same name was renting Hoothoots so people can travel through the haunted forest. I'm not exactly sure that's her. :?

[SPOILER]She's probably not Agatha. Agatha is the new Viridian Gym Leader after Giovanni. Ash challenges her when he returns to Kanto after the Hoenn League.[/SPOILER]

:D

Agatha appeared.
In the pokemon advanced challenge, Ash visits Virdinan Gym when he's heading for Pallet Town and Agath was the gym leader there since Giovanni has left.
Ash challeges her, but pikachu lost to genger.

Yeah Lorelei was in one episode (was it an orange islands one?) but they were dumb and renamed here "Prima" or something.

Cool. You've gotta love someone with a Lapras who wears neat glasses like that. I reckon she'd be the starn but kind type. Kinda like Professor Mcgonagall (spell check?) off Harry Potter

Lance was in one too. It was one where Team Rocket was force-evo Magikarp into Gyarados(Not J+J+M, they couldnt think of that if their life depended on it) but the Gyarados were still red. I think thats it a least....
Oh yeah, it is called "Talkin Bout an Evolution!"

Lance also showed up in the Groudon and Kyogre episode. He helped Ash quell the fighting between the two legendaries.

Since we're at it, RSE Drake also appeared.

He fought and beat ash with altaria and shelgon if I'm correct, and Dragon Claw'ed team rocket away with a (beautiful) salamence.

One of the few E4 of the anime that resembled the game's in team formation and power.

Bruno also showed up for one episode before ash went the pokemon league in the first season.

Ash also fought Koga for a marsh badge, but he was only a member of the elite 4 in the gold and silver games so i suppose this does'nt really count.
