That only Ash is present and his companion will probably rob him catch the Absol instead of letting it go free because the Absol sees the WORTH in him.

Goh has been getting high profile captures. He got a flygon. He has cinderace. He got a scizor. He has a heracross. He has a suicuine. He has an arctozolt. He is getting drizzile soon. And technically he caught eternatus too. The fact that there are some 850+ pokemon means that there will be points when he will catch pokemon like geodude and patrat. But then he is also getting insanely strong pokemon. I dont think that is a direct measure of his progress.
I'm happy with Goh evolving his Pokémon rather than just catching more, preferably Goh would only catch first stage Pokémon and then evolve them, but that does not change the fact that the majority of his Pokémon are from early route lines, predominantly Kanto.

While him catching Single stage pokemon/ M&L would be nice, even seeing him catch some of the more unusual first form Pokémon, especially those from outside Kanto would be a step forward.

Not in 480p 4:3 will probably be the most glaring change

Also different artstyle, different Ash, and there's this thing named Go that'll be running around throwing balls around like nobody's business while Cinderace t-poses to assert dominance over Hoennian pokemon...

Maybe they will show it in 4:3 to preserve artistic integrity of their vision.

Why do you all like Absol anyway it has a terrible Mega Evolution
Yeah, they really should've put those extra 100BST into its paper-thin defenses because while it's hilarious seeing Mega Pokemon fall over to a beautifly flapping its wings on the other side of the planet, it doesn't really mesh with the whole "becoming stronger" thing its supposed to do

Also floof, and its covered in swords, and unlike Galarian Absol, it doesn't need to waste its mouth holding a sword

Can we please get the older, old forum back?

Jokes aside, I really don't get why they only ditched 20 into its attack and 40 into its Sp.Attack. I mean I know it gets the big Ice/Electric/Fire-moves, but they could've realistically made Mega Absol a nuke with a 190 base attack if they just let that be..

Satoshi and Go have received a research request from Hoji in the Houen region, a boy Satoshi battled a while ago. It turns out that the hot spring inn Hoji's grandfather runs isn't getting any water anymore. The villagers blame the Disaster Pokémon Absol, but is this REALLY Absol's doing?! Satoshi and Go head to the Houen region to pin down the actual cause.
