Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

Oh god, i hope not. Kubfu is another fighting type. I won't mind Kubfu, if there are at least three other captures in betweeen Galarfetch'd and Kubfu. If not, i hope it stays far away from Ash's team.
Well the Fighting type is my personal favorite so I wouldn't mind Ash getting a third on his team. Plus Urshifu has the Water and Dark typing to help balance things out

That would feel completely pointless from my viewpoint. The other argument that he could get a third Fighting-type because it would be dual typed already feels rather forced, but at least there's some truth to dual typed Pokemon being able to cover two purposes rather than just one, so I can kind of understand the logic there. But I don't see how Satoshi having two pure Dark-types would make a difference: I don't buy the "they have different battling styles" excuse as being a good enough justification either, because Satoshi is such a straight-forward battler that Zoroark or Absol's varying fighting styles would be almost moot, anyway.

If it's about him needing more regional representation on his team, then Satoshi can just capture a different Gen III or V Pokemon.

It's possible that Ash might get both Absol and Zoroark. The only Eeveelution that I want Ash to catch is Espeon
Absol I can see, Zoroark on the other hand feels abit too soon after Gladion used one.

I don't care if May and Serena had them, i'd rather Glaceon or Sylveon if Ash had to get an eeveelution myself.

Kubfu i really hope goes the water route if Ash gets one.

If they give Ash a Zorua we could see another rivalry between Ash's Zorua and Gladion's Zoroark in the PWC like with their Lycanrocs.

Maybe, he got two pure water type in Kanto(even though he only used Krabby->Kingler in the league.)
I mean yeah you're right that Ash caught 2 pure Water types in Kanto but he didn't use Krabby in that saga except at the Indigo league so it's not the best comparison. Unless people think that the spare Dark Pokemon will be sent to Oak's place like Krabby was?

Type overlap doesn't matter as long as Absol and Zoroark have some other movesets other than Dark Types and they have different battling style

I think Zoroark for Ash is just as impossible as Eevee.

Ash isn't a dirty fighter, so he wouldn't even use disguise, which is Zoroarks whole gimmick to begin with.

He never said anything about type overlap he said that Ash having Zoroark would be too soon since Gladion had one not too long ago.

I don't really care one way or another but it does sort of make more sense for Ash to get an Absol because at least an important character hasn't used one in a long time. :confused:

Reminder this series is unpredictable
Oh god not this again. Why is this the favorite counter argument for everything around here? You could argue against every capture theory like a dozen different ways that actually make sense but people always fall back on this whole 'it's unpredictable' spiel that doesn't mean anything.

It works both ways because I could just say the same about the odds of Zoroark not being caught as I could in favor of the odds of it being caught which is what makes it such a lousy position to take.
