Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

Golisopod.
I still don't think this'll happen since it's such a self-sabotaging species because of its Ability. I don't think a Pokemon that requires such skill and proper timing to manage would be a good choice for Satoshi in particular since I think it would likely do more harm than good in important battles.

I'm sure Ash would be able to overcome Golisopod's ability. Even if its forced into it's Poke Ball Ash can just simply send it back out, lol

Honestly when Pokémon have such a unique and possibly self defeating ability they find their way to slip out of Ash's grasp. It's probably why they gave him Roggenrola in Unova instead of the Archen he and Tranquil taught to fly. It was honestly one of the better BW episodes. I wish Tranquil would have been used more and I wish Archen would have been entrusted to Ash by Juniper and Fennel. Defeatist tho, that ability is pretty bad.

I doubt abilities had anything to do with Ash not catching this or that. And Roggenrola if anything was part of how they tried to replicate the OS with the more than 6 captures like it happened at the beginning of the anime where he got alot of captures back then due to a certain reason but it basically didn’t work out for BW due to marketing getting the better of them and not being able to do the rotation thing well as a result.

Considering that Gusokumusha's Ability is the most distinct thing about it, I doubt they'd be so flippant about their treatment of its Ability [or rather liability in this case]. But I still maintain that they probably got their fill of it in SM after showcasing it among Guzma's team anyway, so it's not a species that I'm concerned about Satoshi potentially getting.

If it's an ability that can be easily overcome I'm sure Ash can learn to deal with it. And it's not like Emergency Exit has to activate in every battle as shown with Lana.
 
The Lucario and Cinderace duo is making me sick. I don't remember any notable moment where Riolu and Raboot bonded or even interacted. But now they both evolve simultaneously and become the dynamic duo who can't be seperated.
Yeah it feels forced, but it doesn't make me sick

I mean, Guzma vs Lana was a 1v1, so Guzma didn't even have another mon on hand, so it couldn't even activate in the first place.

I think that there will be because most Japanese people don't observe Christmas.

Christmas celebrations are getting more popular in Japan every year tho.

and the movie premieres on the 25th, isn't it? I think no episode on 25th but I hope there is!

It still activated in Ash vs. Guzman, which was 1 on 1 if I recall

Even if it was 2 vs. 2 Primarina didn't even damage Goliospod enough to even cause Emergency Exit to activate. We could get something similar with Ash and his

Although to be fair the way they treated the ability Emergency Exit in the anime was less of it being a ability and more of Golisopod just choosing to run away.

Heck they didn’t even acknowledge it as a ability in the anime, and when it activated during that 1vs1 battle that you are referring to Kukui accused Guzma and Golisopod of running away.

Sure Guzma was inclined to run away however Kukui didn’t even mention that Emergency Exit as a ability Golisopod had.
