I honestly just want to see piers and marnie when it comes fo galar characters.
I same, especially Marnie. She is my 1st favourite character of all pokemon series.

What if that long hair girl silhouette is Leaf?
Personally, I'd prefer anime!Leaf as part of the main cast. Or maybe even being adapted into a character of her own, much like Ash was in regards to Red.

I kind of want Ash to beat Piers in the Spikemuth gym just so we can have Ash beating a dark type gym leader in some form.

I like Volkner. But what can he bring on the table to make the battle more difficult?
He'd probably return simply because he's a popular character, although I personally never put him on a pedestal: I think his Gym match against Satoshi might actually be my least favorite one from DP. But if he returns he'll probably be given a team boost in the form of Daimax.

Torterra's redemption arc....

As for Volkner's strength he could easily be an E4 level trainer, like Volkner finally tipped the scales and finally became better than Flint. And he's been able to battle/train longer than Iris. Plus he's supposed to be Sinnoh's strongest gym leader.

What's that to Ash beating Iris? As I said Torterra. Ash doesn't need to use dragonite, though Dragonite destroying Rachu would be neat.

It will be a shame, if Alain isn't in the PWC. He was by far Ash's Strongest Rival (yes, not best but still strongest) and come on who doesn't want to see Ash get his share of revenge against Alain? I really want him to be in the Master Eight, but I know I'm holding my hopes too high here. I think Alain could also easily defeat Iris (Malva wasn't any problem to him and plus that Charizard is OP AF). More on, Alain & Koharu's Seiyuus are married XD ;).

I think Paul was Ash's strongest opponent. But Alain is also very strong.

If we don't count Tobias as a rival, of course.

Not only Alain should return to PWC, but also Paul.

If even the iris has developed this much, Paul has become very powerful.

That interesting but why no hat?
She doesn't have a hat in Let's GO
Not that I think it's her

Ash has a real chance to get Empoleon. Because of the marketing of the new Diamond Pearl game.
He may even have all of the Sinnoh starters in this series.
Yeah I'm still in that camp myself. If he got Sobble then I'd say the opposite, starter Pokemon feel 'special' like we've really rarely seen a character own one without it having a big role and not just being a random Pokemon. That's why I believe they haven't given Goh a non-Galar starter, they may be fine throwing stuff like Pidgey in there but anytime a Charizard, Sceptile, or whatever appears it always has a crucial role and apart from Paul's Torterra rarely plays second fiddle to something else. Notice how Alola Raichu got shafted in favor of Decidueye? And how you can't really recall anything of Sawyer's other than Sceptile?

Granted it could also be something required by the company itself like they forbid the starters from being throwaway toys and want them to actually be used.

But I fully believe if a Piplup joins that it'll be Ash's, reserves are coming too so we could potentially see Empoleon, Infernape, and Torterra on the same screen

Tbh I'd laugh my butt off if they make her into Ash and Gary's long lost friend and the Bulbasaur trainer from way back when. That's how I've been saying they should handle it, give us more insight into Ash's past and prevent her from being 'yet another Kanto character'.

Sort of like Serena but actual friends and NO crush cause Gary stole her heart lmao

I still hate him but I do want him back just so Greninja can redeem himself.
He shouldn't be in the top 8 though cause that spot should belong to Diantha, Alder not being there is disappointing but they literally hyped up Ash battling her and it'd be frustrating if they fail to deliver on that a second time. And it's kinda bad enough that Galar took two spots, Ash counts as Alola and Kanto rep so Kanto has two as well(three if Gary actually is champ), Sinnoh obviously has Cynthia(No way she isn't there lol)... it already looks like a region is going to get cheated here. Galar's 2, Kanto's 2, Sinnoh's 1.... makes 5. 6 if Gary is thrown in. Hoenn/Johto/Unova/Kalos are still unaccounted for atm, regardless on rather Gary's there or not that doesn't leave room for them all. One region is gonna get cheated(Probably Johto since it's the red headed step child of the franchise :rolleyes: )

I'm still hoping for Brandon to be in the top 8 but so long as I get to see Ash fighting him and the two new Regi's I'm good.

I would like to see some rivalries being settled.

Ash and May's final battle ended in a draw and he never really got a proper match with Kiawe.

What do you guys think of Kurt returning to showcase apricorns to Goh or Chloe? Would the anime dodge the GS Ball?

The last time we saw Volkner, he just got his battling spirits revived... So a more trained and motivated version of that Volkner who already shrugged off some rust would be a different beast...

Cynthia- why would Cynthia not be in master class?
Because she just recently entered the WCS (everyone has to start from the bottom)... That is if it really is Cynthia... Which I highly doubt...

It will be a shame, if Alain isn't in the PWC. He was by far Ash's Strongest Rival (yes, not best but still strongest) and come on who doesn't want to see Ash get his share of revenge against Alain?

The problem with Alain, the writers don't seem to be keen on having anime-exclusive characters from past series to return as hinted with Tracey being MIA...

I think Paul was Ash's strongest opponent. But Alain is also very strong.

With Paul, the same situation with Alain as I mentioned above...

And I would like a rematch with Tobias, a fight for promotion to the Master Class would be perfect.

Yes, 100% they would dodge the GS Ball since that storyline was converted into the Celebi movie. A writer made it clear they want us to forget about it. Plus, kids who watch this show are very likely to have never been around to know about the GS ball.
