Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

I do not mind, but there is very little chance of May's return due to her Seiyuu's voice disorder (and from what I heard, Japan is very reluctant to change voice actor)
Frankly, in this series, I see higher probability of May's return than Dawn.

We haven't seen May in a very long time. Dawn We saw Dawn later compared to May.

And May is better suited to be a top coordinator. Better squad. More experienced. May T can return as Top Coordinator.

No mention of pokemon contests in the new series. We haven't seen the ribbons for a very long time.

The easiest way to see Ash's Top Coordinator friend and Blaziken in the new series is May.

Dawn may also return due to the DP remake. If Ash catches Piplup, Dawn might return too.

Dawn's piplup becomes the teacher for Ash's piplup.

Dawn or May I think definitely someone will return.

He has returned.

the problem is May's VA isn't doing Voice work as much as she used if at all anymore, or something to that effect.

with DP remakes coming if contests are brought up even if it's only for an episode, then I expect Dawn or possibly Serena since she did go to hoenn to start doing them (possibly both girls since they are so popular in a contest against each other) show them off.

He has returned.

it'd be kind of neat if she and dawn competed against each other in a contest honestly.

Just pointing this out but Rowlet could still technically evolve.

kind of wish I saw this sooner.

you know i'm starting to hope that rowlet comes back for a fight, and whoever it's fighting makes it cough up the everstone and then crushes it to piss rowlet off and cause it to evolve as a result.

I don't think Serena will return in this series. She may be mentioned as the Performer, but I don't think she will return.

Serena is the only pokegirl to not return in the next series. Even one of the two characters who did not return in anime history, the other is Cilan.

I think Cilan can return in this series. By the way.

The reason Serena's not returning is if Serena turns to Ash anymore, I think she will return as her girlfriend.

I think the writers don't want to ruin Serena and Ash's special relationship. The scene where they said goodbye was a kiss scene.

I think Serena will turn the other way when she returns to Ash.

In the anime, Professor Kukui got married and had a baby. Now it's ridiculous and illogical that Ash is 10 years old.

At some point, Ash get old and has a girlfriend. Serena is best candiate ı think. And that's why Serena won't be back.

It seems like we will wait for Serena as we expected Pidgeot. Lol

Sound is not a problem. Pokemon company may go for a change of voice. I don't think the sound will be a problem. I believe they will show the contest contests somehow

. Writers like to show Goh. I think someone May or Dawn will be back for sure.

I don't think Serena return in this series.

The funny thing about the Everstone is that Rowlet isn't even against evolving, it just likes that particular rock for its Seed Bomb. Pretty much it's the writers insert to the fans saying "Hey, we aren't evolving the owl, so don't even bother"
No, its more of a case of them giving themselves a out. So basically it’s more that there saying they weren’t evolving at that particular time, but they could still have enough wiggle room that if they wanted to bring Rowlet back and evolve it they could.

If they truly wanted to send a message that Rowlet would never evolve then they would have just have Rowlet show that it doesn’t want to evolve sort of like how Pikachu and Piplup were.

The fact that they didn’t have Rowlet express any opinion on evolving and that it took the Everstone because it thought it was a tasty rock and help it use Seed Bomb, basically because the writers didn’t want to rule out Rowlet evolving in the future.

What is the point of this discussion?

If they question is can or cannot, the answer is of course it can evolve. They can just make Rowlet lose the Everstone. The writers can even make Piplup change his mind. As for Pikachu, He can gigantamax, game logic means he cannot evolve but we don't know if it also apply in the anime.

If the question is likely or not likely, the answer lean to not likely. The writer will only evolve Rowlet if it serve some purpose which as of now there is none.
 
Why are we using such random *** criteria to list potential captures?

Who goes and looks at the Pokémon listings and goes "oh yeah [character] hasn't caught their bovine for the series yet"?
Only if the character is Goh.
I think Cilan can return in this series. By the way
Goh did not get Pansage might indicate Cilan return. Maybe Goh will mistakenly attempt to catch Cilan's Pansage.

In the last poster that showed Absol, Infernape and Alolan Ninetales; we know Goh captured Absol and Ash's Infernape is going to return. Personally, I want to believe the Aolan Ninetales will go for Ash because it covers to Pokemon Types that Ash almost lacks: Ice and Fairy. Not to mention it would make a reference to another previous partner of Ash, Lillie.

There's going to be an incoming episode where Ash and Goh are going to be in a snowed mountain; so it would be obvious to suppose the Alolan Ninetales will appear here.
