only problem with lapras is the difficulty in battling on land.
 

DMerle

Guess who's back
only problem with lapras is the difficulty in battling on land.

Not just that for me the thing is Iris has Axew which is unlikely to evolve until after departing from Ash, Excradrill was already fully evolved when we met it, and Emolga which doesn't evolve at all, it would be nice for her to capture an Aaron or a Deino, something which could actually progress and evolve throughout the next however many episodes, if she caught a Lapras that means we're probably never gonna seen an evolution with her. (Although an Axew evolution on the last BW ep would be cool.)
 

Almighty Zard

He has returned.
in regards to Axew and Scraggy evolving, I really like pepsi's idea of the two evolving by battling each other one final time before Ash leaves Unova.

One thing bothers me about Oshawott potentially evolving, if he keeps letting Piplup and these constant rejections get under his skin (meloetta turning him down for ash, Buneary for Pikachu) I get the feeling he might become disobediant or have the problem sceptile did IF he does evolve.

I don't think that was mine XD, my idea was them protecting the group from something together and evolving, I would still like to see Scrafty doing something if he did evolved but I would be fine with a scenario like that.

Didn't "Challenger!!" last only, like, 34 episodes? And didn't "Pokémon Symphonic Medley" also last only 30 episodes? So, if the World Tournament - Junior Cup last about 6 or 7 episodes. Plus the Team Rocket stuff. And some fillers. Then the Pokemon League. And an episode or two to wrap things up. That easily takes us to about 30-ish episodes. Then I'd assume we'd get a filler arc. So I imagine the opening would be changed for that anyway. So it seems about right to me.

And the openings have been edited in the past... so I don't see the big deal there. They could easily edit the group shot at the end to reflect any team changes. There is room for it. The two Pokemon that would be largest when evolved are at the end. And the two most likely to evolve, Snivy and Scraggy, are positioned so they wouldn't be blocking anyone if they were to evolve. And any new captures could be edited in easily as well.

Joltik-Kid

Meh ಠ_ಠ
hey joltik-kid just draw a new pic with krok's final form next to squirtle wearing thier glasses, don't worry about fixing the current one.

it makes so much sense that the krok goes first, he was the first freaking pokemon to evo onscreen in the entire unova region and end up on Ash's roster.
I wasn't all worried about it XD Though I did have my doubts when that one guy showed up with Krookodile first.

I wish Ash got Feraligatr now, because those two could be best bros :)
 
so only Krookodile is gonna happen huh? A little disappointed that the rest would be the same but what can we do? At least Ash gets another evolution which is good.
 

kickachu

Momentai!
well bright side there can still be a chance for more captures and evolutions I mean it's not like the main characters' pokemon would be like that for the whole season I'll sure Oshawott will evolve but until Ash gets Krookodile this will have to do.
 

PrinceGray

Anti-Hero of Serebii
I can't help but notice that a certain member of the starter trio was left out of the opening and there's a huge space with Ash in the middle with Trip's Serperior on one side and Bianca's Emboar on the other. No way...it's probably just a coincidence.


I want to see Ash, Trip and Bianca's pokemon interact with each other.

The scene from the opening where Ash, Dawn, Cilan, Iris, Stephan, Trip and Bianca all stand with their signature pokemon has me thinking they're doing the same thing with the starters as they did with Ash(Infernape), Barry(Empoleon) and Paul (Torterra) in DP. Ash may get Emboar or Serperior also, but I think Samurott will be his go-to pokemon by the end of the saga. I always thought Burgundy wasn't suitable to be the one that showcases Samurott and as it is, Ash's two main rivals have Serperior and Emboar. The new rival that was mentioned for the tournament may just be temporary like Masoami or may have something other than a starter as his signature pokemon like Stephan does (in the spirit of Best Wishes 2, probably a Gen. 1-4 pokemon like Lucario)

Perfect, couldn't have said it better myself.

I was really hoping for more to be shown during the new intro, but i guess one spoiler is better than nothing happening. I am not sure what to think honestly with how the teams will end up. This is what I see happening for the league (not what I want to happen) It would be three more evolutions (krokorok, pignite, and palpitoad)

Pikachu-Done

Unfezant-Done

Oshawott- I just don't think it evolves.

Emboar- I think he is coming.

Snivy- I just don't think it evolves.

Scraggy- Filler maybe

Leavanny-Done

Seismitoad- Reserves seem to be getting evolutions to make up for lack of screen time.

Boldore- I don't see it by the league.

Krookodile-Done

If this is the team then it is pretty lackluster.

What I think should happen (while being reasonable). 4 evolutions- (oshawott x 2, boldore, and krokorok). This team just looks a lot more intimidating to me.

I totally agree with your best case scenario. :)
Now I'm gonna get something straight, just because I don't see Oshawott evolving doesn't mean I don't want it to evolve. I'd love to see anything evolve, I just speculate what is reasonably going to happen.
I thought the Krok was gonna evolve <3 It didn't look sinister at all to me :p
Also, with Dawn in this opening I think once she leaves there will be a new one.. after the tournament and before the league.
Also, I think Iris & Cilan's teams will get most team changes here, due to them not being spoiled (Pansage wasn't shown.. was it?)
Maybe the August merchandise doesn't mean anything.. :(

I'm glad Krokorok is evolving since Krookodile is one of my favorite Unova Pokemon, although I am disappointed that Palpitoad isn't next in line.
