Well I kind of just assumed that perhaps the show's writing staff thought that it was still too soon to debut Volcarona. I would've liked to see Alder use one here, although Bouffalant being his main pokemon in place of Volcarona was still okay with me.Adeku owning a Buffron was all good, but why didn't he own an Ulgamoth? In Black/White, Ulgamoth was his ace Pokemon if memory serves, so its absence here was one thing that bothered me.
I doubt that since Satoshi never flirts with girls, so it's hard to imagine him becoming like Adeku even when he gets older. That'd be a total 180 and I don't think Satoshi being lecherous would be a good look for him.ash&charizardfan said:Alder is practically a grown up ash with brock's flirting personality, i think this is what ash will look if the writers ever decide to make ash an adult.
