July 22nd: PM2019 118 - Satoshi Heads Into Battle! VS Daigo!!

Lord Godwin

The Lord of Darkness
Yup, they showed a flashback of him asking it for its help for his upcoming battles prior to his match with Sawyer. He also drop mentions that originally he was thinking of calling in one of his Pokémon from Oak's lab.
Ok.
In that case if Naganadel wouldn't return he would either use his Ride Garchomp or consider one of the Reserves.

Though, everyone believed Poipole will return.

There's always Nebby...

Yeah Goodra didn’t help at all and actually hurt Ash against Alain. Then again Ash lost to match himself.
The moment Pikachu lost to level 5 Snivy destroyed power scaling. Dracovish one shoting Dragonite broke it.

Yeah it didn't really provide much during the League, with the only taking out Sawyer's Slurpuff through a double knock-out. It did tank a lot of Bisharp's hits, but pretty much only managed to warm-it up for Greninja.

In a perfect world this is Dracovish, Lucario, and Gengar. With Gengar staring. All three have some sort of connection to Steven's specialties: Dracovish is a revived fossil mon, Lucario is a steel type, and Gengar trained against Paul's Metagross for the sole purpose of facing Steven. But I know the mouse will weasel his way in as we've already seen, hopefully it's Lucario he's replacing in my scenario

In the perfect world these are likes of Charizard, Pikachu and Heracross.
In a perfect world, we'd have a round robin where Charizard shows Lance’s Dragonite who's the true Kanto Ace, Greninja gets revenge on Alain's Charizard, Sceptile defeats Mega Metagross for Hoenn supremacy, Infernape takes out Cynthia's Mega Garchomp in the semis and then Pikachu becomes the ultimate Ace after taking out Leon's Charizard. Well, we might see that last part happen hopefully.

Well there's probably only 16ish episodes left after this, right? And the possibility of another break.

If Leon/Ash and Cynthia/Ash gets 5 or 6 episodes and there's breaks between them and at least 1 episode for Leon/Diantha or Lance, and a couple of episodes for farewell, that only leaves them with, what, 5 episodes for Project Mew plus probably at least one filler?
Well, we have (assuming no breaks)
July - 116-119
August - 120-123
September - 124-128
October - 129-132

Adds up to 17 episodes. 3 of those will be battles in the first round. At least 1 for Lance/Diantha vs Leon and at least one for Ash vs Cynthia. That brings us down to 12. At least 2 for Ash vs Leon, bringing us down to 10.
Chloe is bound to get one episode of conclusion, so down to 9. Project Mew should get at least 3 episodes, so down to 6. An epilogue arc, which should be at least 2 episodes (going off past series), so we are down to 4.

So my other possibilities for episodes are:
1. Extended Epilogue
2. Filler ep
3. Extended Project Mew arc
4. Ash vs Cynthia lasting 2 eps.
5. Ash vs Leon lasting 3.
6. Extended Chloe eps
7. Another break

It's unlikely they'll extend to November.

Predictions for this battle:

Sirfetch'd vs Aggron = Double KO
Gengar vs Cradily = Gengar gets recalled
Pikachu vs Cradily = Pikachu Wins
Pikachu vs Mega Metagross = Mega Metagross Wins
G-Max Gengar vs Mega Metagross = G-Max Gengar Wins
If Pikachu is going to be Ash's ace against Leon, it would be terrible to have it lose against Steven's Metagross, consider how strong Leon's Charizard was shown to be.

Additionally, if Lucario is going to be Ash's biggest ace, that would be all the more absurd as we've just seen a couple of episodes ago, how AG was leagues ahead of Lucario. Would be stupid to think Ash is not using a confirmed stronger pokemon against the strongest trainers in the world.

I think G-Max Gengar will force Steven to Mega-Evolve and then lose. Base Pikachu will likely get the win against Mega Metagross.

Judging from the (albeit very brief) trailer I think they’ll go the Raihan route. Ash will probably plan to use G-Max Gengar against Metagross, but will have to use it already against Cradily to save Gengar from getting knocked out early on.

As for his third: He’ll probably start with Sirfetch’d to gain the type advantage, but Steven will defeat him to show his strength and to raise the tension.

Peakachu will then knock out M-Metagross to parallel Leon’s base Charizard defeating MC-X
I think Sirfetch'd doesn't need more humiliating defeats..

That's what me and a lot of other people were hoping for Alain's battle against Ash, instead being a Gen 7 Pokémon.

I think that it would be awesome. Better if it they kept as a complete surprise. Ash would need to find a way to maneuver around this "new" Pokémon that he has never seen before and maybe that's how he ends up learning about the S/V region.

I personally want Leon's team to consist of Charizard, Dragapult, Rillaboom, Mr. Ryme, Rhyperior and a Gen 9 Surprise Pokémon. I don't want Aegislash on his team since we've seen it utilized by Wikstrom. In the games he also has a Haxorus, but that's Iris ace so you know.
they showed 3 altaria, I don't think they would have a problem showing another aegislash.

Humans are tools
Satoshi joins the war!!! Let's go


R.I.P Steven. You won't be missed

Meanwhile in hoenn wallace will be throwing the party in celebration of steven's loss.

In all seriousness tho, i hope they atleast show the image of wallace seeing this match.

The battle I’ve wanted for 18 years is almost here. It genuinely feels surreal. I can’t wait to see Ash duke it out with the best Champion :D

Pikachu, the Metagross Slayer will finally return!

Its kinda sad he isn't facing lance and diantha, there matches were also some which were highly anticipated especially lance.
