Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

Go point is to complete is dex, Satoshi's goal is to have the strongest team possible, Satoshi doesn't get more Pokemon because that wasn't the point of the characters, I liked the bigger roster in BW, but a lot of people didn't.
People would’ve likely taken the bigger roster of BW receptively if it wasn’t treated poorly. Half of them were questionable captures and it was literally just Pikachu, the starters, Scraggy, and the last spot up for rotation which mainly went to Krookodile but then unfortunately got permanently taken by Charizard while also having Scraggy getting rotated out for Krookodile and the rest got shafted to Oak’s for the rest of the series. And only 3 were stupidly fully evolved for whatever reason.

The “marketing curse” basically got the better of them and screwed over the entire team.

Ash doesn't need Grookey or any other basic stage mons (except Kubfu) at this point or Ash returns to Normal Class again... LOL... Rillaboom would be welcome though...

What he needs are the likes of Tyranitar, Corviknight, Dragapult, Zoroark, Absol, Kommo-o...

It doesn't bug me how quickly Go caught so many Pokémon, also unlike Ash, he has more than one ghost type.
The point is not about how many Ghost Types each one has (by the way, I believe Ash's second Ghost Type should be Rowlet evolving to Decidueye), but the fact that Ash's needed 20 years in the anime to officially capture a Ghost Type Pokemon. His old "friend" Haunter doesn't count.

Yeah, I get it. Goh is for quantity while Ash is for quality. But even as I don't expect Ash to capture every single Pokemon he sees like Goh, I expect him to capture all those who have considerable power to face the strongest trainers. Several of the canidates I have in mind for Ash to capture are Tyranitar, Blaziken, Rillaboom and Corviknight.

I feel that some of those Pokemon aren't like the others in terms of their perceived power. I also don't agree with the idea that Satoshi will capture any Pokemon that tickles his fancy just because they might suit his goal. That was one of the excuses that was used to support the Satoshi with Flygon theories [among others], yet we see how that turned out. In particular I don't like the Armorga scenario, but that's just me.

You know if Ash does get a fossil Pokémon I could see him getting the fossil Pokémon in it’s basic stage and then evolving it in a later episode provided it’s not one of the Galar fossilized or Aerodactyl.

Also before someone tries to argue that for instance if Ash got a fossil Pokémon in it’s basic stage it would be too weak to battle right away and would be just a baby.

It’s important to point out that while sometimes the fossil Pokémon revived can be a baby, that’s not always the case as it can still be a experienced battler considering it seems to revived the actual individual.

I suppose it's because I've always been a fan of a little monkey but I'm still in that camp as well
The point is that, once Riolu will evolve to Lucario, they will need another "not evolved" Pokemon to be Pikachu's "partner" on Ash's team.
Well I will continue to be very confident in Ash capturing Grookey, if it doesn’t happen then no harm no foul. As long as Corviknight and Dreepy line end up with Ash so that he can use them in battles then I will be happy, but I was confident enough to believe that the Alola gang, his team and Kukui would appear again in this series and they did so, I will continue to be confident that Ash will not only catch Grookey but it will evolve all the way to Rillaboom.
I think his first Steel type will be Scizor when Go evolves his Scyther via anime physics.
i want to see him continue to evolve some of his Pokémon that he currently owns in the lab instead of catching their evolutions so I would welcome Go’s Scyther finding a metal coat and evolving just like Feebas.
In all honesty I wouldn’t be that surprised if Go gets all but one of the Eeveelution and Ash gets the remaining Eeveelution.

I mean keep in mind they had all 3 of Goh’s Wurmple all evolve into Cascoon just for the gag.

So I could see a situation where Go gets 7 Eevee and tries to get an 8th one but the 8th winds up choosing to be caught by Ash.
i agree I only want Ash to get an Eevee if it evolves into one of its evolutions otherwise, Goh can have Eevee and Ash can catch either Espeon or Umbreon as is without evolving one into an Eevee.

Honestly, I think two things can happen: Go decides to do Misty/Brock and to travel with Ash in next region and in Gen 9 girl(Gen 9 protag) can tag along. Or Go can simply leave in 2022 or even 2023 after Gen 8 is done. Honestly, I feel first one will happen more than second one.
It's almost impossible Goh in 9th gen, he has a Gallar Starter as his main partner.

Chespin :p

On a more serious and likely answer, it could be Kubfu. Granted it'd make a bit repetitive yet ANOTHER fighting type but hey Kalos & the Flyers were a thing so provided Kubfu's the last of its type added to Ash's team, it may be fine

It's almost impossible Goh in 9th gen, he has a Gallar Starter as his main partner.
I used to think about it myself as well but I dunno... I could see Cinderace being forced to babysit the lab, thus creating another paralel between Ash and Goh, so his trainer can have a new partner.

Well he or Ash or girl/Chloe can get new starters in their arsenal xd

Iris: Haxorus, Gabite and Druddigon
Dawn: Tylphlosion and Luponny
Clemont: Chesnaught and Magnezone
Cilan: Simisage

Regarding Ash, the only unevolved mons i want him to catch is Dreepy and Galarian Zigzagoon

Most of them are evolution, except Irish's Druddigon and Serena's Altaria. Druddigon won't be new pokemon though, it is the one that she befriended near Dragon Village, isn't it?

If Serena return I will also predict Altaria for her, the other is Absol.

Not counting Alola gang, Irish, Cilan, and Serena are the only companion (trainer) who do not have full team.

I’m kind of hoping that Journeys visits the Orange Islands at some point since the last time they were even brought up was BW.

I can easily see them having an episode where Goh tries to catch the unusually colored anime-only pokémon they featured since it’s one aspect of the Orange Islands a lot of people still remember fondly (especially since they appeared before shiny pokémon or regional forms were even a thing)

Yes, that Druddigon.
About Serena's Absol is also a posibility but with Pangoro been also a Dark type unless Pancham doesn't evolved, although Pangoro and Absol are diferent fighting styles and moves so this could happen.
