    It’s still hard to believe that we’re finally on the last chapter of B2W2. I do wonder which route their going to take with the open slot that will be left behind when B2W2 ends.

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

    Ah yes. Reading a story altogether in one go, and reading a story chapter by chapter on a monthly basis sure invokes a different feeling.

    Exactly I tried it with SM chapters and while I was still dissatisfied with many aspects of it I appreciated it more. And as for B2W2, I just love it as a whole

    B2W2 will be postponed by one day, at March 28 update.

    At least is one day and not two or three weeks like before. I have no problems with this.

    Well it's final and not final lol An epilogue is surely to come out with the volume at least. So what happened with Colress, did Kyurem freeze him? He comes back in SM/USUM so he shouldn't be dead at least. And it went all according to plan as Gigi goes with White2 at least for the final attack. I think we still haven't even seen Hugh reunited with Purrloin. There's still a lot left I feel, at least we need one more chapter.

    As established long ago, freezing is perfectly survivable in Pokespe, frostbite and suffocation be damned.

    I guess the Pledge Moves are our substitute for Frenzy Plant, Blast Burn, and Hydro Cannon.

    Look at that, you were right. Escavalier saved Lack-two.
    The epilogue needs to be quite extensive if they're taking care of missing moves.

    I wonder if they're taking a break from Sunday Webry or if they will start featuring Sword and Shield in there.

    This looks like one of those 'let's showcase a lot of moves' chapters.

    And here I was thinking the delay was because today's part was super long or something, but no, it's the same size as usual and it just ends on a cliffhanger, magazine release style. I guess the epilogue will be volume only. Maybe Kusaka and Yamamoto were nostalgic about that.
    And maybe, if there are plans to break the name tradition and make Hue a Dex Holder, and maybe Cheren and Bel too, who knows, Kusaka and Yamamoto might want that to be a volume-only surprise.

    Now, how is the Starter distribution going to be settled in the epilogue? I don't think Prof. Araragi will keep Samurott, and also don't think Bubu-chan will permanently go to Whi-two, because it basically breaks from Buoh and Bubu-chan often being treated as a couple being a mirror of Black and White also being treated the same.

    Here's what I think will happen: Bubu-chan will return to White, who'll finally fully accept her as part of her team. Whi-two will act all down over Bubu-chan not choosing her, and Banjirō will give his Pignite as a way to cheer her up and will also use this as an opportunity to flirt with the cute transfer student he hasn't met yet.
    Professor Araragi will then reveal he has an unclaimed Pokédex and will give it to Hue. OR he'll reveal he has two unclaimed Pokédexes and will offer them to Hue and Banjirō. Hue will accept one, but Banjirō declines the offer. N, as part of his character development of accepting the world of Trainers and breaking from his father's propaganda, will ask the Professor if he can have the last one, finally understanding the Pokédex represents a bond between Trainers and Pokémon instead of being an excuse to trap them. Araragi will then accept N as a Pokédex Holder.

    Just after Hue and N register themselves in their new Pokédexes, we get a resonance sound (for the first time in, what, 10 years?) between the Pokédexes and Cheren and Bel are revealed to own Pokédexes that they received at some point in the two years time skip. Samurott then decides to go with N on his atonement journey of returning the stolen Pokémon to their Trainers.

    Now, what next month for Webry? Since the next SwSh chapter is the Budew Drop Inn stuff, we'll probably get the introduction to Hop, Mary, and Beet. Perhaps, if the name tradition is going to be broken, and Rivals can be main characters again, maybe from April onwards, Webry is going to be SwSh but focusing on Hop. And to complete all that in May we get an announcement of Isle of Armor stuff on CoroCoro Aniki.

    Or maybe we get LGPE starting next month. Who knows.

    Calling it now, Sōdo's family created the Rusted Sword and Shield.

    The manga has stopped doing that for some time though, arguably on Gen 3, but also arguably was starting on Gen 2, or maybe even as far as Yellow. Crystal's Smoochum got boxed basically as soon as Megapyon showed up, and them she didn't show up until HGSS except for a cameo in Emerald. And then she had a Mr. Mime on Emerald that we never saw again. But I guess Crystal is not a good example because she catches basically anything that enters her field of view, so let's go by the other arcs.

    In RS, Ruby and Sapphire don't ever have rotate their teams or carry 7+ Pokémon. Ruby has a Celebi that basically went to him to help in the final battle. RURU goes to Mitsuru before Ruby even gets a full team. Ruby and Sapphire train with Plusle and Minun, but they technically don't capture them. I admit I don't remember if they are counted as part of their teams on the Trainer stats on each chapter.
    Sapphire has caught Kiruru by the time of ORAS, but that's already a separate chapter, and from my understanding she doesn't carry Eruru and Jirara with her on that arc.

    In DP, none of the three ever get a seventh Pokémon. In Platinum, Rotom is counted as Diamond's Pokémon, but Diamond doesn't ever carry it. There's also Manaphy and Fione, who are only shown in the epilogue. Platinum has a Piplup on SM, who basically only exists for backstory purposes.

    And from BW onwards, no one ever has 7+ Pokémon on them except White. Sun's PokéRides don't really count as part of his team, from my understanding.
    Most characters since RS have had consistent teams without rotation in the same arc. We only get additional, seventh or so Pokémon for them in later arcs or small roles or cameos. At this point, I think it's safe to say Pokédex Holders aren't going to get rotational teams anymore.

    I can't see them creating the Rusted items, but I can totally imagine them having a hand in creating Instant and Eternity, the sword and armor Guile used.

    Soudo's name is Japanese in origin, so it's possible his family could've originated from Sinnoh or at least one of the other Japan-based regions.

    So apparently, this morning’s update was supposed to have 8 additional pages, but Yamamoto knew he wouldn’t finish on time... so they took it out for the time being and even after that they had to delay it’s release until today.... lol

    It seemed like he said that the extra pages will be in Last Chapter #4, which is before the manga release(Not sure, blame Google Translate) but is that a separate part or is #4 the epilogue?

    It did seem a little weird that it got cut there. Well, all I hope is that we get a satisfying ending for everyone.
