    A credible rumor does imply that Pikachu is getting a G-Max form.

    Considering that "Affleck" leak, has got a vast majority of things right, it's pretty likely that there is a Gigantamax Pikachu and it just hasn't been revealed yet.
     
  4. As long ad Kukui's team doesn't exist out of Pokémon who are fighting or resemble a fighting pokemon it is good to me

    So Poipole is back as a Nagandel. Looks like Ash has his full team. Sweet

    Haha wow I never would’ve expected Poipole to come back as a Naganadel.

    Yeah his team is stacked, I take back what I said. If Torracat evolves this might be one of Ash’s strongest teams yet.

    Looks like Poipole did some major off screen training in Ultra Space. Now to wait and see if it will get the Goodra treatment

    mehmeh1 ^Probably Steven Universe?

    I typically don't say it, but I really want Naganadel to job (ok, maybe beating one mon). He hasn't trained on screen even a little and has one team skull fight as his battle track record. Sure, Ash kinda got handed Melmetal too, but he also jobbed after showing his prowess (not to mention that they got to understand each other a bit better from the fight with Silvally, as shown by Ash mimicking Melmetal's movements at some points), while Naganadel probably won't have anything more than this fight

    Which is only marred by Rowlet.

    I hate being the “told you so”person but where are the people who doubted Poipole was coming back for reserves :p

    There’s always that one. In DP we had Torterra and in XY we had Goodra. Keep the trend going

    Don’t forget Mr. Big & Reliable!

    But eh, let Melmetal & Naganadel get a win in. Wouldn’t mind Rowlet jobbing too much.

    Also I figured MR’s true identity would be revealed before the match so Ash would be even more motivated

    I do not want to see another Goodra situation (even Torterra was better off than that), and I also don't want the thing to leave either if they made the effort for it to come back.

    Torterra was unfortunate because the writers didn't want to give it Earthquake while Ash had a bromance with his Infernape. It was unfortunate.

    more like the writers couldn't make up their mind on how to make it fight.

    To be honest, it really should've stayed as a Turtwig, or at the very least Grotle, even then I still don't get the point of having Paul's Torterra show it a "Defensive" way to fight, but then later on it gets Rock Climb out of nowhere to regain some mobility, and that very move costed it in practically all of it's fights.

    At the very least though, it helped put in effort for the sinnoh team despite falling short towards the end of the region, that's a lot more than can be said for Goodra, who's only real good achievement was helping Ash win one badge.

    So is Naganadel going to be here for one battle then dip into irrelevancy?

    Most likely. Which is why it needs a win against Kukui to leave behind some sort of contribution

    So with the royals identity being revealed before the match. im guessing braviary will be used alongside incineroar & lucario. Which leaves 3 pokemon remaining. I'm not expecting ash to win this so one Pokémon will have to not get a win. My money's on rowlett so these are the wins I think will happen

    Torracat - incineroar
    Naganadel - braviary

    I'd rather it didn't happen but I can see Pikachu defeating lucario.

    Honestly ash's team seemed really bad before the league, a pikachu which isn't anywhere near peakchu, lycanroc which could very easily still lose against his rival's lycanroc, a rowlet, a torracat with zero grand trial experience, a little baby meltan and a released poipole who we never saw again.

    But after the league, its pretty good; Pikachu defeated Guzma (who was probably THE strongest trainer in the whole league) and a legendary Silvally, Lycanroc defeated its rival (its already proved itself way before this tho so its fine), Rowlet defeated it's final stage (something unheard of before), torracat not doing too much but still showing it could take a few hits, meltan EVOLVING (a league evolution hasn't happened since Kingler) into a full blown mythical Melmetal, and Poipole becoming a Naganadel offscreen, an ultra beast which is close enough to legendaries and mythicals.

    Kukui will have a harder time than we all thought
