SM Ash = New Ash
You know, since they are taking inspiration from the post-game of XY, I wonder if Looker will be back to arrest Xerosic. It would be a nice continuity nod… which this series truly needs.
I stopped watching after #1 lol
This is true.
Given the setting for Sun and Moon, past Pokémon (especially the stronger ones) seem really unnecessary.
Technically it doesn't even matter if they take away the synchro evolution at this point. Ash was going to dump Greninja at Oak's place either way. Besides it's not like we will see Greninja for a (long)while now.
What's was Ash's last special Pokemon? When was it last seen?
Look on the bright side, Ash is alone for at least one episode.
Yes, but it was his sole counter to Mega evolutions. He could have always returned to deal with those.
