1. Ash is an idiot.
2. Allister is smart.

You do the math. Of course Ash would do something that reckless and rely on Ali to save him.
I wouldn't say Allister is smart or dumb. He just knows generic knowledge that Ash is so completely lost on.
 
Doesn't that describe almost everyone in PokeWorld?
Except Ash is blatantly doing something reckless that even he should have some doubts to do before attempting to, which he lacks, so no, it doesn't describe everyone.

He's a Goh-getter to a big fault.

I want Nessa to be next:/

Most of the pokémon got a 'mentor'-figure returning in this series:
- Pikachu: No mentor specifically, but maybe returning to Vermillion Gym and rebattling Volkner counts?
- Dragonite: Iris
- Lucario: Korrina
- Gengar: Allister
- Sirfetchd: Wikstrom
- Dracovish: ... Iris sort of?

Seems about right that Dracovish still needs to get a Water-type mentor figure.

Place your bets:

- Misty

- Wallace

- some CotD
 
- Lucario: Korrina
Yeah, no, she didn't even do squat of training with his Lucario. She was just there to tag along, ironically like Ash and the XY group did for her. Hell, Korrina didn't even let her Lucario out during the stone search and was more like the load...for Goh.

You missed the part where Riolu saw Korrina's Mega Lucario and had that 'AWW SH**! THAT'S GONNA BE ME ONE DAY!'-moment and where Korrina was right there giving Ash his Mega Glove and sending him towards the Lucarionite? I mean she was pretty important to the development of Ash's Lucario.

Goh is relevant in this post.. how?

I said mentor-figure, not mentor. As in, the named character that's brought in to help out in the development episodes of the current roster.

That somehow didn't lead Riolu to be mentored by the Mega Lucario. In fact, they went MIA completely until the next 60 episodes, when they didn't even interact past 20 seconds.
and where Korrina was right there giving Ash his Mega Glove
If I gave Ash a berry he needs without issue, am I suddenly a mentor-figure?
and sending him towards the Lucarionite?
She was then hitchhiking.

Whoops. Sorry. It was Lucario who was with Goh. Korrina stuck to Ash, except she didn't do anything because Ash and Lucario kept going using its aura.

Seems like you really like Goh if you want to bring him up so often.. You might as well brought up Goh's Scyther hogging Farfetch'ds episode as well.

You expected a just hatched Riolu to be trained into becoming a Mega Lucario in much less then 60 episodes? That's like expecting Chimchar to rapidly evolve into Infernape and mastering Blaze within 60 episodes since he wasn't under Paul's care anymore. The shot was clear: Dragonite vs. Mega Lucario inspired Ash's Riolu to reach that level of strength at one point.

There's a big difference between a berry and a Key Item where her family is known for and which is required for the next step in Lucario's progression. I honestly don't see any reason why you're so hung up on the word 'mentor'. What did Iris really do for Dragonite aside from a little cheer? Yeah, not much. Did Volkner do much for Pikachu? Also not so much. I said recurring figure that acts as a 'mentor-figure' for the pokémon of the day.

The point is that they seem to bring back a named character (or introduce in Wikstrom's case) to tag along and help during one of Ash's Pokémon development episodes - and that it is therefore likely that the same might happen for Dracovish. That's just something you can't deny - aside from being semantic about a word and blowing up about it and bringing a pet-peeve into the discussion.
 
If anyone's capturing that it'll be Goh and then Galarian Corsola will be tossed into Laboratory Limbo
It's sadly ironic that the lab greenhouse is basically a dead zone anyway.

I LOVE Goh.

I don't understand why everybody is so hung up about his personality flaws or whatever. He's not perfect but its clear to me he is a genuinely well-meaning person with a caring heart.

At the very least he's more entertaining than Ash the cardboard cutout. Although I am not really a huge fan of the dub voice: it makes him sound like a teenager.

He makes himself feel like a failure at times, when the truth he is far more successful than he thinks.

He cries too much over simple stuff.
He's not perfect.
He has Quick Ball genes and even said he was destined for greatness in the second episode. He wasn't wrong there.

He doesn't really believe in training his Pokemon to evolve. They do it without his input. With little effort shown.

And his first Pokemon achieved full evolution faster with not many battles than Ash's Charmander did...and the bunny actually listens to Goh despite that.
but its clear to me he is a genuinely well-meaning person with a caring heart.
So is every non-villain character/non-bully in the show. It's not something so commendable.
At the very least he's more entertaining than Ash the cardboard cutout.
It's a strange battle of who can be less tolerable than the other at this point: the UNBEATABLE cardboard cutout, or the Pokemon-catching wonder.
Although I am not really a huge fan of the dub voice: it makes him sound like a teenager.
Blame Lisa Ortiz, but then again, Xeno is an amazing voice actor.

Aside from Go’s catching goal being kind of meh in handling (conceptually it’s kind of hard to make a goal like this super engrossing without it feeling repetitive - things like Suicune are at least new and interesting or him evolving Strike or the Raid Battles but filler catches are bleh) Go is a good bean who brings good aura and energy to PM as a character and at least feels like some ambition was put into the character. I don’t really have a huge problem with Satoshi or Go this series aside from wanting more screentime and general worthwhile focus for their main teams.

I still don’t really understand what makes Koharu so popular around these parts aside from her filling the “girl” slot and her serving as a “gotcha” to throw shade at the boys’ writing TBH. Not that I dislike the character but the last focus episode with the Glacia was rather uninteresting for example IMO as were her focus in the first Hikari return but people eat it up. It seems like a girl character being cute showing rather normal levels of cute/sweet behavior charms people *shrugs* I still think I prefer her pre-Eevee. I go back and forth on likeness and feeling indifferent with the character but if her reception is largely positive that’s a good trend.

People liked when Chloe wasn't given a job as an Eevee taxi driver. Nowadays, her episodes are kind of very predictable and don't really center much about herself.

I hope someone will capture Galarian Corsola.
Well it looks like Ash is battling it, so there is less chance that Goh is catching it, though there was that poster with Alister and a Drifloon, Sinistea and Corsola, so all the ghosts in the magazine could just be his.

I agree that the Darkrai and Glaceon episodes didn't really do much for her, and Haruhi outshone her in the Johto episode. I actually enjoyed the Kikuna episode more for her. Ponyta episode was also good, or when Goh commandeered her house as bait, even though that wasn't a focus on her.

I think I enjoy her character more when she is a regular person with her family > trainer girl Koharu > > > > Eevee trainer girl Koharu.
