Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

    Considering that they have no problem bringing Chuck back even though there are way more popular and more well known characters, I don’t think you can really count some of Ash’s reserves out just because they aren’t as popular as some of Ash’s other Pokémon.
  2. I can see Lillie with Alolan Ninetails, Magearna, and Cleffa/Clegairy/Clefable

    Do you think the Isle of Armor arc will show after the Darkest Day plot

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    Honestly two of my favorite Unova Pokémon.

    Palpitoad had a good and diverse moveset that set it apart to most of Ash's previous Water-types (having 2 STABS and a poignant coverage move against its biggest weakness - and a good support move in Supersonic). I often wish Oshawott wasn't caught so Palpitoad could've gotten some love.

    I personally thought that Boldore had an amazing battling style (and moveset) - essentially being a Rock-type that actually fought as a Rock-type (as opposed to Lycanroc which is a generic cookiecutter speedy physical attacker that Ash always uses).

    In fact, I kinda feel that way about quite a few of the Unova team:
    - Leavanny: Used more as a Bug-type then Heracross ever was.
    - Scraggy: Love its defensive moves and kicking-style along with Focus Blast-spam. I mean this thing blocked an Aqua Tail blast with HJK and a Giga Impact with Focus Blast. Let it come back, evolve it into Scrafty and it will be amazing.
    - Pignite: Yes, three Fire-type moves, but they're all so different that it unironically makes it incredibly well rounded when they finally added Brick Break.
    - Krookodile: No complaints. :)

    Concluding: Ash could've done without Oshawott and Snivy in Unova.

    A member of the Pippi line on her team would make sense, and I still think that the writers missed an opportunity to give her one in SM. I wish they'd done that instead of the Magearna subplot.

    I would’ve been fine with Oshawott and Snivy if they just evolved at least instead of being the shafted useless mons they were, Snivy had the most potential but stayed a Snivy with like no changes. It was just there. No new moves, not even an evolution. Oshawott never won a battle after BW062 and was just the usual useless water starter gag mon. There was a report that it was originally supposed to be at least a Dewott but was one of the things scrapped thanks to the earthquake and nuclear disaster, tho that’s just mainly an unconfirmed rumor/report.

    I agree. I loved ashs snivy but they should have evolved it. Entire series no move change either. It was sad. Although i do wonder why did they not evolve pignite all the way?

    I kinda have two theories regarding Pignite about not becoming Emboar. One was because of Bianca and the other was due to how they thought they could make another “Charizard” but due to how very unpopular Emboar is due to its design, they abandoned the idea of wanting it go all the way as a result.

    Good timing since part of Isle of Armor is getting the GMAX form for your starter. Go will have Cinderace after DD and could get his own Dynamax band from Mustard

    If they do utilize the Isle of Armor story. Obviously the pandemic put things into a difficult position with the approach to the anime. As the isle of armor has been out for a considerable amount of time it does make sense for Goh to get a Dynamax band from Mustard while Ash learns that this is where Leon trained. Continuing the aspiration of achievement of wanting to battle Leon.

    With Ash and Goh as the story does make sense for both. But because of the two and the conflicting goals it might make things difficult.

    I think the pandemic barely affected much of the production tbh. The real issue is how they’ll execute the IOA in the anime which like you said basically has two things that could likely get carried out which is Go getting his own Dynamax band and also starting to do some dynamaxing himself and Ash doing training under Leon’s mentor aka Mustard out of wanting to do whatever it takes to beat Leon. This basically also applies to the CT as well where they got to think of something to include the duo doing their own thing despite the conflicting goals of the duo.

    If I had to guess I’d say the next couple of episodes will be the Kanto birds, Riolu Evo (if it doesn’t happen in the Bea rematch episode like I think it will), Ash mystery capture, Raboot evolution episode, and that Hoenn related one with the Ludicolo and marshtomp.

    now that I think about it, the Ludicolo and marshtomp episode could be raboots evolution episode. We know it loves to dance and that was with a group of Ludicolo, so who knows.

    I just hope Unova is in the next batch of episodes. We are due for another one.

    And I’d like it if the next Unova ep is something worth while and not a disappointment like mainly the Johto and Sinnoh eps.

    I think it’d be fun to see Ash and Go visit Sinnoh or Hoenn and do a contest. Maybe Chloe and Yamper could join too

    If Riolu were to evolve in this episode, hopefully it will be after winning the fight (if Ash wins at all, as there is a possibility of a second rematch). I don't like evolution for a win somehow.
