Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

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..
People can still acknowledge that Lucario makes money and hate it. Weird you don't see it that way!

Eh whatever, Ash’s captures are better off being kept hidden anyways since where’s the fun in getting spoiled for Ash’s captures specifically since the options are much wider and larger than previous sagas.

This started surfacing on twitter where it seems the main poster got updated for the third time. Take with a grain of salt but at the same time it looks too legit to me. Partly cause of unfortunately Lucario and Cinderace since that’s basically who matters right now RIP lmao :> (I was being sarcastic regarding that just fyi)
Not surprising though it's kind weird they didn't just add Sobble in the poster. Could be a pic of Sobble jumping as to "mirror" Pikachu the same way overhyped fanfic fullfillment Lucario is "mirroring" Cinderace (even if I don't agree with this)

EDIT:

For real?! Did they really make us wait 3 months for this? Can they be that troll? I don't think there is another franchise that disrespects its fans that much.
For what I gathered, they were overhyping the release of a toy. I don't recall any report about said toy actually revealing information about Ash's next capture or it even being a hint of something more meaningful. The fandom were the ones who thought that piece of merchandise would have mean something for Ash's next capture.

Uhh, there are plenty of toy like that one that has a "secret Pokémon" and it turned to be nothing, happened in past seasons
It doesn't make the situation any better.

Don't act like they are clueless idiots, they put that pokémon in that position exactly to make us think it would be Ash's next pokémon. They did it on purpose. Just like the Kalos League final title.
