    Now that he has got Hibanny, Go heads to Kuchiba Forest with Satoshi and the others, aiming to get even more Pokémon!!

    ------

    Go has got his first Pokémon, a Hibanny. He's now taken an interest in getting Pokémon, so he heads to Kuchiba Forest with Satoshi and the others, aiming to get even more. Despite some initial difficulties, he starts by getting a Caterpie, then continues getting one Bug Pokémon after another. Will he manage to get one of every species of Bug Pokémon from the Kanto region?!

    Is Go entering the Bug Catching Contest? What an absolute mad lad.

    and look at his backpack, entirely filled with just poke balls. Somebody stop this kid before he catches everything in sight.

    What I'm disappointed in is that I hate that Go is Ash's Traveling companion.

    I really hope they aren't screwing Ash over on new captures, or even using his own Pokemon from the lab.

    Ash did say he wanted to become an even stronger battler, can't do that with JUST Pikachu.

    By the look of the picture, it seems he's going to be focus on capture the easiest Pokemon to capture, the Bug Types.

    I would like if Ash captures one or two too. A Butterfree (to compensate the one he freed and the one he trained and befriended) and a Beedrill (to compensate the one he gave away in the Bug Contest in Johto). Also, Butterfree can Gigamax and Beedrill can Mega-Evolve, so that's a good thing.

    He also need to power up some of his "weaker" pokemon to be a better battler. Ash needs to evolve totodile to Feraligatr and have him learn liquidation! And quilava needs to evolve, too!

    All of the Pokemon on there are available in the Bug-Catching Contest (or evolve from them in Parasect's case), so I guess we're doing that again.

    I just hope they don't do what the games did and make it all Gen I Bug-types like the games. The post-game version allowed Bugs from later gens.

    Well Dephender theorize that the unannounced episode 7 will have a name of one new Galar Pokemon that's hasn't been made public yet in the episode title so it's possible it could be one of the new bug types which makes a cameo appearance here then in the next episode it would get a more prominent role.

    It seems Ash is not interested in gym battles and galar at all. It will be sad if ash now will become a Go's companion with just Pikachu or with adding 2-3 pokemon in his team. And there too many episodes focusing on Go. What does it mean?

    Because of a new titles, and this is my opinion at least for now. But i hope i'm wrong.

    Episode 6 seems to focus in Kanto Bug Pokemon. I guess this will be in Kanto.

    I really doubt it is the Bug-Catching Contest in Johto, since it seems that they are just going to travel to Johto in Episode 9.


    It means they want to present Go to the audience, as he is one of the two protagonists in the new anime.

    It is likely Episode 9 will focus on Ash.

    Have Ash catch a new Caterpie and reveal via flashback (though Ash is unaware of it) it's a child of Ash's Butterfree. The child takes up its paren't sword or pokeball as this case may be.

    Also have Ash catch a Galar Bug type. Maybe not this episode, but later on.

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    I don't think he will catch all those Bug types, watch him catch only one to be his partner along with Scorbunny. How are they gonna develop all these Pokemon? Also, his backpack is too small for like 20 Pokeballs: max 7-8. And I think that picture is only an art, nothing else.I am saying: he catches 1 Bug type here.

    Easy they aren't, basically to think how Gou team might be handled we can look at Crystal from Pokemon Adventures/Special Gold, Silver, Crystal chapter which for a time had a similar objective in catching all known pokemon at the time(minus legendary and mythical pokemon) and how it was handled with her was that she had core team of 7 pokemon that she would use to help capture other pokemon while all the other pokemon would immediately be sent to Elm's and Oak since Crystal didn't actually intend to use them and just was capturing them for professor Oak and or Elm.

    So basically while Gou may or may not add one of the bug types here to his team, all the other bug types that he catches presuming if he is allowed to keep them will be sent immediately to Oak's or Sakuragi's lab as he doesn't intend on actually using them. So basically think of it this way Gou is going to catch a lot of pokemon, but a vast majority of them won't be on his team and will immediately be sent to Oak's or Sakuragi's lab while not really getting any development.

    Maybe Gou's more interested in the thrill of the catch then actually collecting?

    No, the Caterpie line is there you just need to clear on the picture that you can see the full picture as Caterpie is up in the top left corner between Beedrill and Pinsir while Metapod is in the top right corner between Paras and Parasect and Butterfree is at the bottom below Gou and Scorbunny and next to Venomoth.

    Thanks for the heads up. Never mind then. ...I am going to be kind of annoyed if Gou gets the Caterpie line and Ash doesn't bring up his very first capture. I still would like Ash to catch a new one that's revealed to be a child of Ash's. I don't know why I like that idea so much I just do.

    I'm not a big 'give Ash lots of Pokemon' person, but I would like him to just get enough that it feels that each generation is equally represented or feels proportionate % wise to his Kanto captures (since all Generations come in different sizes).
