Snivy is the best Unova Pokemon ever
Here's a Topic for you all.

Which Galar Pokemon aside from Cinderace do you think would qualify as "Shillmon"?

Like in Gen 6 we had Greninja but we also had Sylveon and to a lesser extent Braixen and Dennede

Gen 7 had Incineroar, Lycanroc, Mimikyu and to a lesser extent Rowlet

Gen 1 had Charizard, Pikachu, Eevee, Gengar, Dragonite, and to a lesser extent Bulbasaur and Squirtle

Gen 2 had Pichu and Wobbufett

Gen 3 had Sceptile and Blaziken and to a lesser extent Gardevoir and Ludicolo

Gen 4 had Lucario, Infernape, and Piplup

Gen 5 had..... Uh...... What did Gen 5 have?
Gen 5... I think it was Haxorus but let's not talk about that best wishes version.

Okay, what can you think of a What if scenario where Ash actually caught a Hatenna in a debut Episode?
I can't. It's too associated with Bede for Ash to get, and I only see him getting one if Bede doesn't show up at all, same with Grimmsnarl and Marnie.

I think they also TRIED to make Zoroak into one of these.

Emphasizing on TRIED
Oh right. Zoroak was almost a shillmon.

they failed to turn Zoroak into a Shillmon so after all


Meanwhile on a separate unrelated topic:
Musashi said that She could study English in a Japanese version of a Sinnoh Episode of Pokemon, Is Language Barrier possible in Pokemon World... Satoshi speaks Japanese while Non-Japanese Region Characters speaks either American, French, Hawaiian, English respectively for Unova, Kalos, Alola, Galar.

So I wonder why Language Barrier was avoided altogether in Pokemon World?

Still nothing about the supposed new opening...
If it was a truly a "New" Opening (with new lyrics) then it would have been announced by now same thing with New Ending. We will have a new version of "1 2 3" this week I still believe. The 3rd Version was only announced a day before.
We'll see about that ;)

"Ash will never win a league" - and here we are
I think Anime has incredibly changed direction since XY even though XY itself just ended 5 Years Ago which many people are not taking into account. The Satoshi in PM does not have the general qualities in XY for which he inspired everyone with. We still see blimps of those qualities here and there but they are barely touched upon. In XY, he was a leading character who was popular with his companions and girls while in SM & PM his personality is much more closer to a 10-Year Old Kid in our own universe. In PM, he sometimes even takes a backseat in focus.

It is completely fine to expect Serena to return, I do as well but if you are expecting some sort of SAO-esque Romantic Closure to the Story with them you are hoping for too much. Pokemon is a Corporate Series which does not care about closure. Heck it is not just Serena, it is similar to how all other companions have basically been written out. Serena is equivalent to other companions in that regard.

Gen 3 had Sceptile and Blaziken and to a lesser extent Gardevoir and Ludicolo

Gen 4 had Lucario, Infernape, and Piplup

None of the gen 8 will qualify as a shillmon, since we don't see enough of them. However, it would be Cinderace, Corviknight and Inteleon, because of popularity alone most likely.

Next to Lucario, Infernape and Piplup, we also have Electivire.

Gen 5 had Krookodile, Pignite and Excadrill as well. Maybe Pansage if we count that one, altough Pansage took more off a backset after Dwebble evolved into Crustle, since Crustle was more treated as Cilans powerhouse.

I don't think Greninja would qualify as a shillmon perse, because Talonflame got the most focus out of the Kalos squad before Greninja was even a thing (And even after, got its chances to shine against Wulfric, Sawyer and Alain, since it didn't go down without taking a mon with it). So Talonflame and Greninja were both shillmons. I don't really see Dedenne as a shillmon either. It didn't do anything and was just there to be Bonnies lappokemon. If we need to choose another chillmon, its most likely Inkay.

Can we please get the older, old forum back?

While Cinderace is undeniably THE Gen 8 Shillmon, I think Sirfetch'd, Dracovish, and Inteleon might also qualify to some extent

For Gen8 you're forgetting Galarian Ponyta.

I mean a good shillmon should at least have a mascot-suit appear in some kids show. I recall that during Gen5 the sunday morning Pokémon kids show had a Oshawott and Zoroark mascot hopping around the set.

Gen1: Pikachu, Eevee, Charizard. Dragonite and Gengar don't even come close.
Gen2: Pichu, Togepi. Don't know why you'd bring up Meganium.
Gen3: Plusle/Minun. Nothing else really stands out.
Gen4: Piplup, Lucario. Infernape was utilized heavily in the animé, but I wouldn't call it a shillmon.
Gen5: Oshawott, Axew and Zorua/Zoroark.
Gen6: Greninja, Greninja, Ash-Greninja.
Gen7: Lycanroc, Mimikyu.
Gen8: Cinderace, Galarian Ponyta

I brought up Meganium because it had by far the most appearances out of any Johto Starter throughout the franchise. Also Pokemon Snap.

Blaziken and Sceptile were undeniably shillmons tho. Gardevoir too somewhat in recent times
