I would like to join! I was part of the old group but it has been years since I was super active on here. Info about me I use to be icewolf146 before changing my user name. I live in Canada I am 100% gay and I am a huge Pokemon fan.
My guess is Ash will end up traveling with the female player character and she will have some made up anime thing as her goal and a male gym leader will be the other travel companion and of course Team Rocket will be stocking him.
Here is how I see things going in the next episode
Jessie vs James - Jessie wins but Marenie evolves in this battle
Sophocles vs Mina - Sophocles wins
Kiawe vs Acerola - Kiawe wins
Lillie vs Gladion - Gladion wins
The 8 battles will be like this:
Ash vs Hau
Kiawe vs Sophocles
Lana vs Guzma...
Even if Guzma does become the champion I don't think he can just destroy the league by saying that's it will never happen again. Each league has a governing body and committee that would not let a champion say no more Pokemon League.
1. Finding Mohn and Magearna becoming active again.
2. I see something happening with Meltan. I could see Matori and her team coming to Alola again to go after all the Meltan and Ash's Meltan evloves into Melmetal to stop Team Rocket. Ash ends up releasing Melmetal so it can be the leader of...
Here is my predictions for the Alola League
Ash vs Faba - Ash wins
Ilima vs Guzma - Guzma wins
Hau vs Samson - Hau wins
Mallow vs Lana - Lana wins
Scophocles vs Mina - Scophocles wins
Jessie vs James - Jessie wins
Kiawe vs Acerola - Kiawe wins
Lille vs Gladion - Gladion wins
For me it was love at first sight when I saw Scorbunny I love fire types and in mostly every Pokemon game the fire type starter is my first choice every time. I really hope that Scorbunny becomes fire/fairy or stays fire.
As for the other two Grookey is my second favouite I could see it...
I would like to see a Canadian region but I know that's not likely going to be the case for gen 8 but maybe in the future. I say for gen 8 my top two pick are either The UK or Spain. Something I think they should do in the game is make the starting town be in the northern part of the region...
Here are my idea for the possible starters for gen 8
Grass: racoon grass/dark, bear grass, lizard grass/psychic
Fire: bunny fire/fairy, horse fire/ghost, sheep fire, Ox fire/steel, snake fire/dragon
Water: snake water/psychic, platypus water/fighting, walrus water/ice
I would really love to see a Electric/Dark type and Fire/Fairy as my top two picks. I also have some ideas for some other unused type combos and what the Pokemon could be based on.
Grass/Fire could be a dinosaur like Pokemon with jalapenos growing on it.
Normal/Ice could be a caribou...
I would love to see the other gens get some love with Regional Variants as well. I am only doing gens 2 -4 for now. I have listed my reasons for the type changes as well as how they evolve.
1. Ledyba/Ledian Bug/Psychic - evolves at level 18 morning
side effect of the flowers...
My guess is Ash will use his Pokemon that are at Oak's since he won't have a full team at this rate. I see him facing Hau in a 3 0n 3 battle and when it comes to the 6 on 6 battles Ash will first face off against Gladion and win and after that he will face Professor Kukui/Masked Royal and lose...
I am looking forward to this arc since this is going to be the first time since BW that we see Giovanni going after a legendary Pokemon and I am surprised that Matori is now an agent. I would if her and eye-patch will have their own motto with the Alolan Meowth jumping out at the end. JK.
For the gen 8 Fossil Pokemon I would like to see a triceratops that is an rock/electric type with the ability lightning rod it evolves when leveled up knowing charge beam. For the second fossil Pokemon I would like to see a raptor that is a rock/fighting type with the ability scrappy it evolves...
Here is a list of my ideas of some Alolan forms for some Johto Pokemon as well as some Sinnoh Pokemon with cross gen evolutions
Hoothoot/Noctowl - Ice/Flying
Mareep/Flaaffy - Fire
Ampharos - Fire/Fairy
Bellossom - Grass/Fairy
Yanma/Yanmega - Bug/Dragon
Aipom/Ambipom - Fighting...
