Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

DuquÊ?

Too lazy to pick a pic
Pls I have a question. What Pokemon would you give Ash if you were asked to write Pokemon Journeys? You can state the reasons for the Pokemon you've chosen for Ash if you want wish to
I came to appreciate his current squad (bar dracovish). Dragonite and gengar for Kanto, lucario for Sinnoh and Sirfetch'd for Galar are nice, but, if was up to me add more:

Johto: Tyranitar
Kalos: F-meowstic
Galar: rolycoly, hatterene

I think he have more than enough from Unova and I'm resigned to not see him with more Houenn or Alola mons, except for his current ones.

Quite honestly, I'm sure that whatever he gets in the future will be Galar only.
So basically raid battles really are just for goh?
Until now, bar the lugia one, yes.

The final battles takes the cake for me purely because of how disrespectful it was of the rivalry, just thrown out and never really giving us the final showdown that it deserved. Despite the somewhat awful start if a rivalry happens at the start you can't help but get invested and for the final payout to be... that. It's quite disappointing.
I did find their last battle very karmic, though. I'm alone here, but it was probably the best send off, where Trip's previous arrogance bite him hard. I mean, do you want best punishment to a rival than be kicked from the league in their very first battle?

And with the upcoming Project Mew, we are most likely gonna see both Urshifu forms.

So funnily enough, we already have seen a vast amount of Galar mons.

And then i even forgot Zacian, Zamazenta and Eternatus.
You also forgot about Drizzile xD

Just because Ash doesn't have more than 2 Pokemon from Galar.
So i wish this pokemon will going to Ash (Cofagrigus join to Goh's collections).

2x dragon pokemon
2x fighting Pokemon
2x ghosts pokemon

I'd love to see that Ash's team lineup.

I actually hope Ash will once again use Mr. Mime in the future. I wished to see him be on Ash's Team permanently but oh well.
I same, it has only one battle and this was only for battle frontier in Hoenn, meh.

Instead of me writing the series, I'll answer the question predicting what they'll do based on what's happened so far. My ideas for writing the series would be pointless to type out.

For new captures, Toxtricity, Latias, Tyranitar. Toxtricity (Amped Form) just so he has at least three regular Galar Pokemon (like they did in SM and introducing Naganadel and Melmetal later) (also I think the reason why his Gengar got an alternative shading so it won't look too similar to Toxtricity), Latias so they could give Ash a legendary to use in the PWC that's not overpowered and to make up for backlash to Goh getting Suicune, Tyranitar so that he can reunite with his old buddy at Mt. Silver.

For old Pokemon evolving, I think they're going to fully evolve Ash's starters that can be chosen in Pokemon Legends Arceus in case they decide to give Typhlosion, Samurott, and Decidueye alternate forms with new typings. In fact, I'll make the bold and unlikely prediction that Oshawott will evolve in the first episode of Project Mew, JN068. It could secretly follow Ash and Goh (as a reference to BW) while they go look for Infernape and appear as they're fighting Moltres and evolve. For Rowlet, they could end the Project Mew arc with Ash and Goh meeting up with Lillie and Gladion concluding the Mohn storyline in some sort of conflict where Kukui shows up to help out while bringing Ash's Alola team with him. Rowlet could lose its Everstone mid-battle and master Seed Bomb without using it and evolve right then and there. Since we see Lillie and Gladion on a train, it could be implied that they're in Galar, especially with Magearna pointing at some mountains, which could be implied that it was pointing to the Crown Tundra. This is probably why they gave Goh all the Galar starters, there's too many starters to promote for Ash to have all of them.

As for Infernape, they could go the Mega Evolution route if BDSP wants to introduce new Megas. If so, Ash could become a Mega Evolution trainer with Lucario, Gengar, possibly Infernape, and even possibly Latias if they want to do so.

I cannot imagine the promotion of Legends in anime, since the action is to take place in the very distant past. However, if it were only for primers, I don't see that evolution is only about Satoshi's Pokémon. I see it more like this:
- Typhlosion will appear alongside Dawn
- Satoshi's Rowlet will change his mind and choose to evolve and eventually will reach its final form
- as for Oshawott, I see it will be completely different, which will belong to Koharu or Gou
As for Infernape, they could go the Mega Evolution route if BDSP wants to introduce new Megas. If so, Ash could become a Mega Evolution trainer with Lucario, Gengar, possibly Infernape, and even possibly Latias if they want to do so.
The creators rather resigned from Mega Evolution (it no longer appears in Sword & Shield). However, if they still decide to give one to our hero (which I doubt) it will be unfair to the others if he has more than one (so I would rather only bet on Mega Lucario)

They had no problem with Ash being the only character in SM to have more then 3 z-crystals and be the only character with more then one pokemon specific/signature z-crystals on top of him having a Ultra Beast, a mythical Pokémon and a rare form of Lycanroc.

So no, it’s not unfair for Ash to have more then one Mega Evolution.

I just can’t see Rowlet and Oshawott evolving even though I would prefer if they did. Both are marketable in their base stages and they both have gags so I would love to be proven wrong.

Well if I was writing this series, I would have Ash catch at least one new Pokémon from each region so that his team would represent what this series is suppose to be about a world tour team. Right now I was happy with his first three captures and they would stay on his team. I like Sirfetch’d, but if it was between it and Sobble then I would take Sobble to evolve into Inteleon because I want Ash to get another fully evolve water starter. Johto: Tyranitar, Hoenn: either Gardevoir or Metagross, Latios or Latias, Unova: Zoroark, Kalos: Aegislash, Alola: Zeraora, Galar: I would make sure he has 5 or 6 to match the other regions: Corviknight, Inteleon, Toxtricity, Dragapult, Urshifu, Galarian Darmanitan

Justice is when everyone has equal rights, and not when someone has more than others.
Somehow I don't see justice in the fact that they all used only one Mega Pokémon and Satoshi will theoretically be using four.
There is also a hint of injustice in your Alola example as Satoshi got more than the others (although I disagree that the Pikachu trainer was the only one to have a Mythical Pokémon as Lillie also had one - Magearna)

Tbf, the only trainers with more than 1 Z-crystal were those with at least one grand trial (mainly Ash, Kiawe, Gladio and Kukui (I guess)). Also Mallow had a befriended Shaymin that, unlike Magearna, was at least used once in battle, and Gladio has a Legendary Silvally.

It’s not like Ash would use all his Mega Evolutions in the same battle if he did wind up having multiple Mega Evolutions.

It’s not injustice for Ash to have multiple Mega Evolutions. When it comes to Mega Evolution and stuff like that, it’s up to the trainers themselves to decide if it’s something they want to use or not.

Plus no matter what happens there is always going to be cases of some people having more then others depending on thier situation. So, no Ash having multiple Mega Evolutions isn’t unjust or unfair.

Why would he need more Pokémon in this series if he "doesn't care" about the ones he has already caught?
He only uses Pikachu in fights, and apart from him, only Riolu has received a lot of attention

-Dragonite was only used in 5 episodes
- Gengar only fought in 3 episodes
- Farfetch'd only appeared four times
- Dracovish only appeared in two episodes (although the episode with Iris is still ahead of us, never mind that)

Seriously? Want it to catch more Pokémon so they'll fight for at least a little attention? Sometimes Satoshi doesn't even remember taking them with him on research trips

Also by that "logic", Ash was being unfair for having the super one-of-a-kind Ash-Greninja.
