    What Legendary/Mythical + Trainer (and other NPC) pairs do you think might work well?

    Cresselia and Darkrai could work with Fennel due to their relations to dreams

    Swords of Justice could work with Wikistrom considering their relations to knighthood and chivalry

    Diancie could work with Diantha due to their similar designs

    Pluto (Charon) could've had a Heatran based on the Hard Mountain (Stark Mountain) subplot in Platinum version. I also would've given Mai (Marley) a Shaymin since she alluded to one in her in-game dialogue and befriended one in the anime.

    Did Pokemon special manga also toyed with that idea as well (Mai)

    I'm convinced AZ was somehow involved in Magearna's creation

    I could definitely see that

    Ash would definitely have Ho-Oh, since it was the very first legendary he saw in the anime. But in a kind of play on his name, Ho-Oh arose from the ashes of the Burned Tower like the phoenix, its basis, and it gives out Sacred Ash, which is basically like a natural Max Revive (as Ash "died" and was resurrected in the first movie).

    Misty could have Suicune because of its Water typing and its elegance. If I remember correctly, Misty did own a Suicune in the Adventures manga, or at least temporarily, before it became Crystal's (Kris/Lyra).

    Brock could probably have one of the Regis, especially Regirock (since it's, you know, a rock), or a Terrakion. Since he now has a Steelix, he could have Registeel and Heatran too.

    Diancie also sounds a lot like Diantha.

    He could have Zacian and Zamazenta as well, being literal embodiments of a sword and shield, which are a knight's traditional weapons.

    TheCharredDragon Rated F for flirting, fluff and feels

    And polearms (like lances). Don't forget the polearms. They're just as common of a weapon type for knights, if not more so, especially when fighting together in formations in an army or on horseback.

    Well he's been around a long time, so I could see him being involved somehow. I can't think of any Gen VI Legendaries or Mythicals that suit him, so Magearna would be the next best thing from my viewpoint. I actually had a head-canon a while back that Magearna might've been planned for "Z version".

    Marlon from BW2 would get Manaphy or Phione maybe both. Marley from D/P would get Darkrai because they both look goth. Buck would get Heatran and Mira would get Mesprit.

    I don't see Mai (Marley) as having much in common with Darkrai other than their dark aesthetic, so I personally don't think they'd make a good team. But I agree that Shizui (Marlon) would probably have Manaphy as his ace.

    What about giving Cresselia to Mina and Regigigas to Riley I guess.
    Or if we go with the Pixies Azelf matches Riley and Uxie for Charon?

    What Pokemon People see for Looker for example? I can see him with Zygarde which Also works well as Zygarde (as much as Looker) appeared both in Kalos and Alola.

    My new headcanon is that one Zygarde resides in Kalos and another in Alola and each can reach the 50% stage on it's own.

    Regarding Magearna there is a fan theory on the internet (on some PokeTubers chanals) that she is an artificial Guardian Deity for Aether Paradise. It works really well as she is part Fairy and has a folded form.

    I personally could see Magearna being used by Wicke as both give a warm hearted feeling.

    Xerneas would be perfect for AZ, because it can give eternal life and AZ has been living for 3,000 years. I also thought Magearna was a new Gen 6 legendary when it was first revealed, before I found out it was going to be in Gen 7 instead. I think Gen 7 was sort of like "Gen 6 and a half", since it included Zygarde's new formes from the anime that never came out in the hypothetical 'Z' version, and Magearna made her game debut after appearing in a Gen 6 movie.

    I'd give Colress Genesect because Colress is a tech savvy kind of guy and Genesect is a technologically enhanced experiment that was made by Team Plasma. So it all fits.

    I hadn't considered that, but they do seem like a good match. I've been wondering which Legendary/Mythical would suit someone like Shirona (Cynthia), but the only one that comes to mind is Arceus based on it being powerful and Shirona being considered as one of the toughest Champions in the franchise.
  16. Auraninja

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    I always wanted to see Archer with H0-oh/Lugia due to the after-story of Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon.
    Basically, if Archie succeeded in bringing back Giovanni, he would then awakening one of those two Pokemon.
    I know this wouldn't correlate with Giovanni's plot since his story is if he was unopposed in Gen I, but Archer could just come from another dimension entirely.

    My dream is when the anime ends it's Ash facing and capturing Ho-oh. But let's be real; the anime's going to end only when the Sun turns red giant and incinerates the Earth

    LucarioIsMegaEvolving A single misplaced step

    I also think Cynthia and Arceus have a somewhat similar colour scheme, both having yellow and black on their design, though that's not a very compelling argument.

    Maybe do a step backwards and give her Dialga since she's insterested in Legends etc which are clearly a thing of the past So it involves time.
    I see Palkia more of a Cyrus Pokemon so Cynthia and Dialga might work out well.

    Fun fact: If the original anime director was still alive, he would've ended the anime showing Ash as an old man remembering all his childhood adventures.
