    Wow that litwick scene hints a capture. But then.... there's Gengar episode coming up. Ashy Boy...what are you upto?
    Either way It'd be a great addition to Ash's team. Gengar or Litwick. Both go well with Ash.

    Well if we go by the last scan that had Pokémon that were featured in the regions that Go and Ash visited, with the exception of three Pokémon, Go caught majority of the Pokémon on the scan so by the new scan that showcases the Unova Pokémon that Go will meet, then it is only logical to say that Golurk has the best shot of going to Go. For the litwick line I think because it wasn’t featured in the scan that it has a great chance of going to Ash because it wasn’t featured with the four other Unova Pokémon that are with Go on the scan.
    @Cptnmac1, in regards to giving Ash back to back ghost types, there is always a first for everything and also Litwick is also a fire type so it can distinguish itself from Gengar

    Still no excuse
    I see the usual defense squad in full force. Kindly reminder that Go sucks

    Hopefully she does

    I guess it's the fact people had to wait 3 weeks which is fairly a long time to wait, but still, it's been only 3 episodes.

    I feel that the opposite might be true: that the fact that Hitomoshi wasn't promoted in the same scan that foreshadowed this episode's contents weeks ago likely means that it's just meant to be a typical wild Pokemon that isn't designated for capture.

    The Pokemon were supposed to be linked with Go. Not sure why a Pokemon Ash would hypothetically capture, be listed in Pokemon in relation to Go.

    There's also that, since it actually came after the Wurmple evolving which was shown in the magazine.

    The preview got me very hyped for this episode. Looks like it will be funny but will also have a cool battle.

    Why are all of you saying that Ash is gonna catch a Litwick?

    It was shown at the very end of the preview.

    It appears at the very end of the preview. It looks like they encounter litwick outside the ruins so I would assume it shows up at the beginning of the episode. Has Ash ever captured a Pokemon at the beginning of an episode after caterpie? My guess is that either Gou captures litwick or it already belongs to one of the COTDs

    Ignition I change these way too often

    He caught Krabby early on its debut episode

    That's true but that was still only episode 13 and I'm pretty sure that was just to display the fact that you can only have six Pokemon with you at a time. Usually captures now are a main focus of the episode so unless the scene with litwick in the preview is as they're leaving, I doubt it's getting captured by ash here

    It's become the standard in every episode for fans to expect Satoshi to capture a Pokemon even though Gou's realistically the only character who can do something like that on a constant basis. I don't believe for a second that Hitomoshi will be caught, though. It barely appeared in the preview, which makes me think that its role in the episode will be minor and not meant as foreshadowing.

    Well yeah that's what happens when Ash has access to all eight regions worth of Pokemon. No one thought he would catch anything on episode 10 before the preview

    The poster featuring the various regions does include a Chandelure in the Unova section along with Cofagrigus and a Braviary, which we know will both be appearing in this episode. Maybe that hints at a capture and quick evolution?

    I hope Ash catches the thing, Go already caught a random Pokemon last episode and since we know Ash's goal now he needs more than what he has. I hope we don't go too long without Ash catching one.

    ...Or maybe Go is not catching any of them? (probably only Sandile and Litwick) It seems they're not giving super strong Pokemon to Go. Golurk, Darmanitan and Cofagrigus are too much for him imo.

    Well, Ash using Dragonite and Go using Beedrill is nice and this episode looks fun like an Indiana Jones adventure!

    Blue Saturday too fly

    Sounds about right.

    Satoshi getting Hitomoshi directly after getting a Dynaband would seem...like a lot? Especially since he hasn’t really done anything with Kairyu he just got recently. I just don’t see why people want Satoshi to catch a bunch of Pokémon in quick succession just to dump in Sakuragi Park instead of maybe giving some proper focus and achievements. Go is only getting Pokémon every episode because of his role, they don’t need training or battle time because his goal isn’t based around battling but Satoshi getting Pokémon and not using them or interacting with them on an episode basis feel off. That Kairyu saved his life and he had a heartfelt episode where he helped it evolve and learn how to fly. It should have gotten a secondary episode right after and some established moves (one thing I miss about previous series captures.) Thought he caught it for Dande but they’re seemingly focusing on G-MAX Pikachu so I dunno?
