Egg/Riolu scenes: Episode 21
Raboot Training/Beautifly scene: Episode 22
Morpeko: Episode 23
From there, 24 and 25 are probably Galar episodes,
one Sobble focused, and the other with the Raihan vs Leon battle.
24: Sobble capture episode
25: Raihan vs Leon (Sonia debut...
I don’t think we’re going to see Sobble stay in it’s base form for very long.
I almost wonder if they’re pushing all the starter evolutions this gen just to promote the DLC gmax forms?
On a side note, it seems the Galarian Farfetch’d from the preview is probably gonna be caught by someone and...
I don’t think Go will give up Raboot or give it to Ash, but the fact that the episode directly after that will most likely feature Go catching a cute marketable mascot Pokémon that will probably appear often kinda makes you think.....
The Pidgey taking a liking to Koharu is interesting, but I’m assuming it’ll just follow her around for the episode and then fly off for some random reason. (Lugia appearing might scare some of the wild Pokémon off, for example.)
I really don’t see type overlap being a problem. It’s happened multiple times before in Ash’s teams, what with three flying types in Kalos Imao. If he ends up rotating this saga, it’s inevitable some types are gonna end up matching (and I do think Kubfu is still quite likely despite Riolu...
Pignite would be a bit of an odd choice to return on it’s own, so if it returns, it’d probably imply a mass amount of reserves eventually coming back.
