Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

Well maybe Grookey can debut in the lab og prof Magnolia?
I doubt it. I feel like if Grookey were showing up soon that would've been spoiled by now.

Like how Sobble and Korrina were spoiled in advance before they actually showed up.

With Grookey it's just been Radio silence. No promotions, isn't on the poster with Eevee, Dracovish and the rest, and etc...
I'm sure that they'd be hyping up the debut of the final Starter to appear in the show

And before the big impact turns out to be that Grookey winds up being the first starter that doesn’t wind up on the main cast during it’s respective generation. It and Thwackey just wind up being Pokémon of the day and Rillaboom winds up belonging to Leon. lol

He is still there on the poster, he is just not in the middle with Goh, you can see it with Grookey on top of the clock tower.
I think they meant they're surprised Sobble's not in the foreground like Lucario is (despite there also being a Lucario in the background...)

If only this could've happened to the Tepig line :rolleyes:

We've been getting future event previews every ten or so eps. We're likely to get another sooner or later.

I suppose it could happen later, but I doubt it'll happen during the Black Night subplot if that's what you're implying. I know that one of the recent toy sets showed a Sarunori figurine with the cast's Pokemon, but I think it was mostly general merchandise and not 100% accurate.

Centiscorch would be fine, just give Ash his sixth already. As long as it ain't Grookey or the fossil abominations, I honestly don't care what he catches. Just don't want to wait another 10 episodes for it to happen...
How funny and crazy fans would be at one point people were like ash gonna get 25-30 mons this season now dying to see and ash struggling to get his 6th pokemon.

I never understood the desire to see Satoshi capture a lot of Pokemon in this series, although I don't think I saw anyone predict that he'd capture around 25 or more Pokemon: the most I remember being predicted was something like a dozen in total, but to me that's still six Pokemon more than he really needs, especially if he isn't going to focus on them all equally or at least attempt to. I could live with the illusion that he at least tries to showcase all his Pokemon often, but the Galarian Kamonegi situation in particular looks bleak.

Hoping for an updated opening after the SW/SH arc since most if not all of the visual material should be covered by then.

When have you ever heard of a trainer's 2 Pokemon having some personal beef with another trainer's 2 Pokemon.

We could have gotten that with Gladion's whole team made up of really important Pokemon...but in the end, his Silvally (and Zoroark, I guess) was kind of there next to Psycho Lycanroc.

Did you forget Paul? Pikachu/electabuzz rivalry, staraptor/honchkrow rivalry, torterra/torterra rivalry, infernape/electivire rivalry

Ah, watching people have such hatred towards the Lucario usage is just hilarious to witness, really.. Y'all realise how making money works right? If you've got your hands on one of the most marketable Pokemon out there, you push it and push it to see how much money you can squeeze out..

Lucario is just getting the spotlight in this saga because it was the most popular Pokemon yet to be on the cast, so it was the one they could do most with at this point in time. It might not be what you guys personally want to see, but in reality you're just little fish in a big pond of people who mostly love Lucario and will buy all of its merchandise whilst watching the anime in order to get hyped and buy even more!

Personally, I couldn't care less whether it's getting most of the spotlight or not, as long as it's major appearances are entertaining. I'm sure Pokemon like Farfetch'd will get their time soon, especially since that one has had evolution merchandise floating about for ages. As for Grookey? It's going to come eventually, they've just got a plan which we don't know about yet..

I am optimistic now because Ash in XY and SM had 4 Pokemon at this point on his team and now he has 5-6( if we count Mr.Mime).So, I am optimistic to see Ash catch like 2-3 Pokemon( 1 before 2021) and 2 next year and that's it.
