    IIRC the primary reason May didn't return in XY to promote ORAS was because her VA was retired. People in Japan are very sensitive regarding VAs of main characters as we all know.

    If you mean her 4Kids VA Veronica Taylor...

    Nope! She actually has had some of the most popular roles as Fire Emblem's Micaiah and Dragon Ball Super's Ribrianne.

    Retired, then. For like 7 years now.

    Cilan for sure. I really thought he was very entertaining and I do like how he incorporates food talk into most of the things he does. As a little bonus it would be nice to know why he's scared of Purrloin so much since we never got an answer to that.

    None, actually. I wouldn’t mind them popping up every now and then.

    I do think that character comebacks or even just cameos should happen more frequently. One of the main arguments that I've read against that happening is that old characters lack relevance now, but since Kasumi and Takeshi came back twice in the SM saga, I don't think that applies anymore.

    Max. Having become a new trainer he decides his first league will be the one ash is competing in. He serves as both travelling companion and rival and we see him grow while learning from ash. Ending in a huge battle at the league.

    Plus getting to see each gym leader battle twice means we can see more of there strategies and Pokémon

    Max becoming a trainer would mean that time has passed and he's aged since he needs to be at least 10 to become an official trainer, but we know that characters don't actually age in this series so I don't think he'll ever return as a trainer, just as an annoying little brother character again.

    I didn't enjoy Masato much in AG, but he was one of the few Houen characters that I would've liked to have seen return in XY back when OR/AS needed promotion. I kind of wish that we had seen him appear as the designated Houen hype character instead of Shota.

    Dawn! I really want to Dawn joins again in a travel, she is my favorite female companion and yes im a pearlshipping, just look my avatar, but the main reason tahat i want Dawn return to the main cast is why i felt her outpout was a little forced and the fact that she never beats her main rival (Zoey) made that Dawn's arc never gets a real end

    Cilan is a good option too, one of the most charismatic characters ever deservers another chance

    Brock could return too but he was for very long time as Ash's companion

    After SM ends, Lillie and Kiawe could be a great option to turns in Ash's companions in a journey
