Iris’ Eventual Return

Discussion in 'Pokémon Animé Discussion' started by PorcelainVulpix, Oct 10, 2019.

    Since Iris never got a cameo, what would you like to see if Iris possibly returns?

    For me, I wouldn’t mind seeing the anime hint at Iris becoming Unova’s eventual champion. I also believe Iris has the potential of being the strongest of Ash’s previous companions, so I’d love to see how much stronger she’s gotten and possibly an intense battle between her and Ash.

    I like the idea of her possibly appearing in the SM special and meeting one of the classmates. Maybe she could battle Kiawe

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    I'd imagine she'd make a return showcasing her 6th new Pokemon in some dragon-themed episode involving some big dragon-themed character in the latest generations. Also wouldn't mind if Iris returned as Pokemon Champion as long as it's believable like the Adventures manga. Considering what the anime did to her character's Pokemon team, those are some big difficult shoes to build up to.

    I completely agree but I have hope the writers will redeem her team. Misty’s team was kind of garbage in OS but she got most of her development off screen. I’d love to see Iris come back with a fully loaded kick @ss team.

    I would like to see her with Deino and Druddigon which she traded for her Emolga and Excadrill.

    Oh, and hopefully her Axew is at least Fraxure by now.

    I really wouldn’t want to see her Emolga go, of all the main pokémon, it had one of my favorite personalities.

    I don't think Iris will return either.

    I don’t think she will either but I hope she does . If she does I would love for her to have do something like Dawn and battle everyone on the cast.

    Can they give her her Champion design? They refuse to give Misty and Brock their HGSS designs, but still.

    I hope we'll see it when Ash returns to Unova. The character had the cards to be interesting, but the writers introduced all the stuff that could have been developed without doing anything with it.

    So maybe in a series that does not try to attract young audiences, we could better exploit it... What we could have done in XY, since she was pursuing Rayquaza the last time we seen, we could have given him a role in Mega-Evolution...

    I wanna see Iris battle Ash with her Gible and have them both evolve during the fight.Then when her Gible evolves into Garchomp she can rematch Cynthia

    I wanna see a 5v5 battle with ash and iris it would go

    Emolga vs Snivy.they are rivals
    Axew vs Scraggy.They are best friends
    Excadrill vs Krookodile.
    Dragonite vs Charizard
    Gible vs Gible
    if she has a garchomp or gabite then it will go against Pikachu

    You know ... I think Axew does not sell anymore. I say that based on his absence as a starter in Super Dungeon Mystery.

    If we review Iris, she may have evolved its Axew

    Haxorus would be nice

    I don’t think he ever did. It’s not like I found him unappealing but I feel like a Dragon Pokémon like Gible or Bagon is more palatable as a “cute unevolved Pokémon”. Unfortunately they were introduced before Unova.

    I bet next time Iris returns she'll be so strong that she would even challenge Lance for the championship title and if she wins she'll automatically be acknowledged worldwide as the strongest Dragon type pokemon trainer in the world. Would be great if it happens but 90% unlikely.

    Is this series confirmed to not attract young audiences?

    And not only that, but they said they never evolved Axew bc they didn't want to have to deal with animating Fraxure throughout every scene of an episode (since it's an out-of-ball mon) I'm sure they'd be fine with doing it for just one episode (or a few).
