Lychee, "Cry and Laugh" so excited for her debut. Definitely my favorite Kahuna, hoping she shares some nice moments with Mao and Amamaiko like ingame. I hope she's super enthusiastic and just overall a nice sort of passionate and emotional character. Would love to see her crying over a love story or Shojo manga like ingame. Not really tripping over Midnight, she has it ingame and it's not like Gladion's had a ton of battle time. I expect this one to be far more emotive versus his more laid back on. A nice spanning arc. beginning with Lychee is what I've been most excited for and I'm super optimistic. She'll definitely get a nice share of screen time like ingame.

Ignoring Type Null, I think we must agree that if Gladion was going to get a 7th generation Pokemon, I think we have to agree it had to be Midnight Lycanroc. Its unfortunate the writers of the anime felt compelled to give Gladion a midnight Lycanroc because either Type:Null is a no-no (at the moment) or by sheer lack of variety that the games have been producing since 6th generation, 7th generation being slightly worse (being only made up by Alolan forms as well as legendary Pokemon).

So I feel like that's why Gladion is excused, as I said when Gladion was introduced, I hate that Gladion has a Lycanroc but did say it does make sense, as by design its the only thing that would suit Gladion (that's not named Type: Null)

Cross the movie exclusive character with Midnight Lycanroc or Lycanroc anything I call bullcrap on though. Sure Midnight Form does complement Incineroar if they were going with a theme, but honestly it only shows they are shoving 7th generation Pokemon just to some how justify retelling the story of how Ash got Pikachu, instead of a movie actually taking place in Alola, just as a 20th anniversary for the anime. In which case maybe it would've been better if Cross had a different 7th generation Pokemon than Midnight form.

I'm inclined to say the latter, however why Gladion couldn't of had Type:Null now to spice up the current lacking plot of Sun and Moon is beyond me really. It's not like Type:Null is overpowered or anything.

Still though, like you I also don't mind Gladion owning one, mainly because Midnight Lycanroc is just dope regardless.[/QUOTE]

If Lillie didn't have Nebby, the Pokemon that Aether wanted because of its ability to open up Ultra Wormholes and summon Ultra Beasts, then it stands to reason that Type: Null, the Pokemon specifically designed to be a "Beast Killer", wouldn't be here either.

Gladion and Lillie's roles in the games are heavily tied to each other, so if one is drastically changed, then the other will change as well.

People are saying Lynarock is a overrated Pokemon because two major character have. At least Lucario or Charizard have a good reason of being really Popular

I don't think Lycanroc is overrated per se, just that it might have been more prudent if the SM writing staff had planned things differently by not showcasing Lycanroc so early in the saga twice before this for instance and had Lycanroc debut here instead.

More like Ash is laughing that he's finally out of Melemele and can do trials in Akala, but crying because he realises that he has to go back to Melemele since he 'lives' there.

At the end of the episode, as he's laughing because he's happy to finally start competing in Trials and explore other islands, Ash realizes he still has to go to school or else he won't graduate like ever before. Poor Ash. It's okay to cry that you can't travel around Alola at your own leisure or else you will flunk out of school. XD

It's a joke. It's really the fanbase that's probably going to laugh when they revel in the thought that Ash is finally going to travel around Alola but cry when they realize that he is still in school and has to go back to Melemele sometime in the future. :)

I am sure Ash is glad to leave the island that has imprisoned him for so long as well.

I think they did...something to Olivia's character.
You may into something but please don't go so in depth,if you end up being right you may spoil us.
Your assumptions are very enlightening after all.

Either that, or the anime writers are having Gladion keep Type: Null a secret and stay inside of its pokéball most of the time. If this is the case, then it's partly because Type: Null & Gladion may not get along with each other yet, partly because Gladion doesn't want the Aether Foundation to find them, & partly to build hype for when Type: Null does finally debut

New summary:

Satoshi has ended up having to go to Akala Island for class. He goes there together with Akala island's Island Queen Lychee, who's accompanied by her Lugarugan, but on the way they run into trouble.

New summary:

Guessing either TR or TS. Guessing Ash will use another Z move and impress Olivia enough to give him the trails.

Trouble? Smells like Team Rocket or Team Skull. I would love to be wrong, though, and the trouble be something else entirely. In any case, I suspect Ash will show off a Z-move or two and impress Olivia, enough for her to give him the Trials.

Trouble one way or another. Has to be either Team Skull or Team Rocket. But there could still be trouble even without Team Skull or Team Rocket.
