-A rematch with Ash

I hope to see Dawn saying she won a GF. It doesn’t make any sense why they stunt past characters growth since they aren’t traveling with Ash anymore anyway and Dawn could win and keep competing in other regions anyway. We’ve had Solidad win the Kanto one and still continued on in Johto
I literally read this as "I hope to see Dawn saying she won a Girlfriend" xD

She must've beaten Zoey in the finals of a Grand Festival and went out with her afterwards. Two GF's for the price of one battle is a good rate.

Who knows anything is possible in offscreen world, i am sure dawn and other companions and even COTDs and past rivals are in touch with each other offscreen, they must talk to each other except ash as he has amnesia and forgets everything after his journey in one series is over.

Personally, I dislike off-screen achievements like Iris's 99-straight win streak. So I wouldn't feel any positive emotion if Hikari came back and told us that she won a Grand Festival. What I would appreciate is seeing Nozomi and Kengo in flashback form if Hikari returns, and perhaps getting an update on where they are now.

I'm on the minority but... I never really cared for Zoey to be honest. She was kind of the first "friendly major rival" (even predating game!Shauna and the trend she's started, unless RSE!Wally would qualify as major rival) but other than that, I just find her... Boring.

I didn't like her much either if we're talking about her personality, but I still think that it's nice when the writers remember the old rivals. Shuu and Harley were barely acknowledged when Haruka returned in DP, so I simply want to see Hikari's rivals receive better callbacks.

After Shauna? And how did Barry come after Zoey when he was the rival in the games that serve as the basis for the season in which she debuted?
Was talking about Zoey and Barry’s anime portrayal. You weren’t clear besides just giving their two names with no context when SP’s post was mostly about Zoey

I was talking about the first games friendly rivals.
But... why? This is the anime section and the person whose post you quoted was obviously talking about the show because they mentioned Zoey and she wasn't in the games. Why complicate things by mentioning the game versions of the friendly rivals?

Shauna wasn't the first friendly rival. I was referring to this part of his post.

I understand that. I wouldn't mind since Dawn narely won the entire thing her first time around so it's not that far fetched she won one outside her traveling with Ash. I think not having off screen achievements after a character has been gone for awhile is boring and makes it looks like they have no active life outside their original appearance/travelling with Ash. It's the reason why I liked how Misty/Brock was able to command mega evolution in their cameos.
