It finally occurred to me that whoever served first in the G10 matches might have depended on the score of the previous match.
9/10 -> Ochi -> 32 games
3 -> Duke (probably) -> 8 games
7/8 -> Tohno -> 17 games
5 -> Kintarou -> 16 games
2/6 -> Akutsu -> 12 games
1 -> Tokugawa
So whenever the number of games played in the previous match was even, the first serving side stayed the same, and they switched when it was an odd number of games. I wonder if that applies to the older matches as well, but too lazy to check.
I was randomly reading the wikia, and read that ¨Tokugawa is the only person who Byoudouin has had a rematch(ed?) against¨.
We know that Oni was the number one player in the camp, then somehow ended up being the no. 5 (and then left that spot to Kaji) but he didn't lose against Tanegashima nor Byoudouin (because there was no rematch) apparently... so how did he end in that spot?
I think it's say he's unmatched before he seal away Kishin. So he can perfectly just be beaten by other people after he seal Kishin, I believe. So his rank drop down.
On the other hand, he could had stepped down from 1 to 5... but that wouldn't make sense.
Well, maybe Byoudouin did have another match with Oni and beat him. He says that Tokugawa is the only person who dared to appear before him a second time, which could mean that nobody challenged him again after they got beaten. In the case of Byoudouin and Oni, Oni won though and then Byoudouin would've been the challenger in case of a rematch.
Tanegashima doesn't beat him, but for him to come down in rank, someone have to. I'm guessing Byoudonin was the ex no 5 before he challenge Oni. Is there any page that says Byoudonin never have another match with Oni since then ever?
Yes? So what? I'm asking for a page that state there was never a rematch against Byoudonin. Evidence, please?
I just said I read it in the wikia (and it can be wrong, that's why I'm asking, no need to be an ass). Please.
Well, did it say they never play each other? If it doesn't state that, there is a chance they play each other. It is as simply as that.
Also, you don't need to play someone to knows they got a new tech. The U-17 court watch videos of MS just playing National, really. I thought they'll be focusing more on bettering their own players.
And Byoudonin doesn't have to know Pirate as soon as he return. He could gain that while playing overboard. We don't really know.

Since Irie and co. had never seen Oni's Kijin, it's likely that he had already sealed it by the time Byoudouin returned, so even if they did play another match, Oni probably didn't use that move.
Byoudonin can simply beat Oni as #5 when he comes back. There's nothing that go against it.
