• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

    The Future of the World Championships

    I wonder if they'll pull something similar to the games and have some Big Threat interrupt the tournament just before Ash faces Leon. Imagine: we get to see the Masters 8 team-up to beat the threat. People would go crazy.

    May 27th: PM2019 112 - A Triumphant Return! The Alola Champion!!

    I'm predicting Ash calls on Paul to help him train before facing Cynthia. Same as him calling on Clemont before Drasna and Greninja before Raihan.

    The Future of the World Championships

    Because, as we saw with Flint, until the tournament begins the Final 8 aren't set in stone. And also, because keeping us guessing created buzz. Just look at how many posts this topic's spawned, not just here but across the internet.

    May 6th: PM2019 109 - VS Kibana! A Fight with Masters Eight on the Line!!

    Actually, if she (or Paul or Marnie) did make her way up off screen, it would explain why we got shown Flint getting pushed down to 8 only for Raihan to be in that spot and fighting Ash later. Think of it this way: they always wanted to show Ash vs Raihan as a "last chance to get into the...

    The Future of the World Championships

    If we carry on the pattern of "returning character helps Ash train to beat opponent Y next episode" (Clemont before Drasna, Greninja before Raihan) then I wonder if Paul training Ash before Cynthia might be a good fit?

    Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

    If we say double episodes for Leon (final) and Cynthia (semi-final) and single ones for Flint (to get into the M8) + the quarter finalist, that means only four weeks out of the remaining time. Personally, I'd feel a bit short-changed but its doable. Otherwise, its a long shot, but they could...

    The Future of the World Championships

    I like this suggestion, though in the current set-up, Paul can't get into the Masters Eight until Ash either goes up or down from 9th place (and that would require Ash fighting Flint). The only way it could work is if we meet Paul when he's already in the Masters Eight, and see a flashback of...

    The Future of the World Championships

    Given they hard rebooted the films, I do worry they might take this route with the series if/when Ash beats Leon too.

    The Future of the World Championships

    That was a big shout-out to Steven in the latest episode - makes me wonder if its deliberately foreshadowing his appearance in the M8. I mean, they didn't have to mention him, it added nothing extra to the episode story-wise.

    The Future of the World Championships

    Though if it is a tournament, as suggested, then he can only fight two before Leon (presuming he fights Flint to get into the M8). Then there's Diantha to consider, if she turns up as has been heavily foreshadowed. I think Ash vs Cynthia is a given. But who he fights out of Lance, Raihan and...

    The Future of the World Championships

    I know many of us are speculating Iris will make it to the M8 - but is there a chance another returnee Ash has already battled could play a similar role instead: Marnie?

    The Future of the World Championships

    But for Ash to be ranked 2 or 3 he'll have to have already beaten (or risen higher than) Cynthia and/or Lance - which would remove all the tension from the tournament. He'll just be fighting people we've already seen him beat or that we know he's better than to get to Leon. I think it's more...

    The Future of the World Championships

    Just to add, I realised there could be another line-up for the semi-finals: S1: Q1 (Leon) vs. Q2 (6 - as we've already had Leon vs Lance) S2: Q3 (3 or Raihan) vs. Q4 (Ash) So, this could suggest other possibilities for Ash's semi-final opponent: Raihan: if Cynthia is 4 and Ash has just...

    The Future of the World Championships

    Ah! Okay... my bad. In that case, my personal (completely speculative!) prediction would be the following line-up: Q1: 1 (Leon) vs. 5 Q2: 2 (Lance) vs. 6 Q3: 3 vs. 7 (Raihan) Q4: 4 vs. 8 (Ash) The reason for this is, if we went with Q1: 1 vs. 8, we'd have a Leon vs Ash battle right away...

    The Future of the World Championships

    Given we've had Leon battle Raihan and Flint in what seems a random time-frame, I can't see how a tournament could be taking place. It seems more likely that when you get in the Masters 8, you have a chance of a match-up with the champion. Whether Flint would have risen to first place had he...
