Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

People, even if we get anime related Piplup merch (Which we have gotten since the start of journeys), it doesn't really need to point towards something, because here is the thing: Due to BDSP, Project Piplup is a thing, so they are gonna market the thing too death, alongside the 2 franchise mascots Pikachu and Eevee, just like they did with Eevee when Project Eevee was a thing.

Now, Lana did get an Eevee to correlate with Lets Go, so Dawn is most likely gonna come with Piplup to promote BDSP, however, i wouldn't expect a major role for Piplup until at least late October/Early November.
Sinnoh promotion may start earlier than the months you listed. Volkner is coming soon for the PWC

Ah yes, because a cookbook is totally related to the anime

People need to stop posting random merch in hopes it means something when 99% of the time it likely literally doesn’t.
Guys I wasn't being serious in that post lol

Sinnoh promotion technically already started in 2020, due to Project Piplup and the Piplup merch (And Ash's Lucario).
I really hope Ash gets a Pipulp which would evolve all the way to Empoleon that will complete the Sinnoh starter and he needs an unevolved Pokemon to work with

Its literally to late for him to get an unevolved Pokemon, especially if its a starter, a base stage (He can get a middle stage of a three stage line) of a three stage line. He is already in Hyper Class. Its a little unrealistic if an inexperienced base stage gets wins, when all his other mons are already fully evolved (They rushed his evolutions for a reason). Ash isn't getting anymore base stages, especially not from a three stage line. I just think thats not realistic, unless they demote him all the way down to Normal Rank. If they do that, all of the off-screen progress was pointless, so i can't see them doing this either.

Either it's some sort of early BDSP promotion as there are Vulpix in Sinnoh, or the Alolan name got trademarked before these Sinnohians Vulpix could evolve. (Then again, regional variants not native in Galar can only be obtained through trades and not in the wild, so unless BDSP don't change that to wild, this will look weird.)
Or maybe it is an A-Ninetales that left its former trainer because he or she didn't meet its expectations, just like Snivy and Greninja when it was a Froakie(Or in Greninja's case, A-Ninetales probably got released for being too disobedient).

Disappearing isn't that bad, actually.

No it's not lol
Literally none of the evolutions this series were earned, they've been rushing them left and right. Hell Drizzile's literally been rotting away at the lab yet it looks like we'll have Intelleon soon

It's not too late, they should just give Ash fully evolved Pokemon from this point on however given their desire for rushing them out but I'm more than willing to give Piplup and Kubfu a pass due to them actually promoting stuff(IOA and DP). If they want Ash with Corviknight however just give him a freaking Corviknight, no excuse for him to get a damn Rookidee now and not in the first 20 episodes!

Heck I wouldn’t mind if the Rookidee that appeared in the Dracovish episode showed up as a Corvisquire and be the Krookodile of this series.

Damn, when I said Drizzile wasn't going to come out until when it literally evolved, I wasn't being serious about it.

I've already come to accept the sad truth for us Sobble Line fans is that the writers really do not care about it and the sooner you accept it as well, the better you will be for it

Let’s be real—that Rookidee didn’t even have a minute of screen time but it captured all of our hearts. An Oscar worthy performance to be sure
A real great Actor. He deserves an Emmy

Even if you weren’t being serious, they are still proving you right.

And the Oscar for best Pokémon to capture the hearts of the fan base goes too: Rookidee! Meanwhile Pikachu is in shock
