Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

Mr. Reloaded

All encompassing
Why do people like an Ash Absol Capture? I mean Absol is PU or disgusting tier

You don't understand how the tiering works. Absol is PU via usage not entirely because it's bad, but because there's objectively much better dark types even in NU.

Why'd Ash get a Lucario? Lucario is in NU this generation lmao.

So we're to automatically assume that Absol couldn't be weakened? Or what about Flygon? He captured that perfectly fine..
It's just a speculation. Of course he could catch one but depends on how strong the Absol is. If this Absol turns out to way stronger than his Flygon and if he uses his one of his not so strong pokemon against it, he may not win. Whereas Ash has a good chance of catching it just like Goh wasn't able to catch Farfetchd but Ash was. Nobody's saying Goh won't catch it for sure. Just speculating how it could go to Ash.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'd definitely like Ash to get it since that was one of my wishes for gen 3 and again when ORAS came around, but I wouldn't complain if it goes to Goh because I just expect it at this point..

Seems like a Go is getting episodes again. I think he'll basically go to a open region like the wild area and Absol is the strongest or challenge of the episode.

Do you watch dream or something?

It kind of depends. Ash never captures pokemon in a genuine battle now. To me, that looks like a genuine battle but who knows it could a distraught Absol or something.
Nah, I'm just goofy. And I'm quite aware, and I actually don't give a damn about who Absol goes to if it joins the main cast in the end. Just thought I'd play contrarian and say that this time, its an Ash capture despite basically the majority accepting or saying that it'll be Go's.

Each of Ash’s captures in this series have been somewhat different in how so there is nothing preventing from Ash getting a Pokémon in a genuine battle.

So really it could go either way in terms of who will catch the Absol, and whether it actually gets caught or not or is a wild Absol or belongs to someone already.

We don’t have enough information about it to really say for sure what will happen with Absol.

However there is a chance Ash might catch it.

JN give me a Lucario/Cinderace/Inteleon episode!
If we're using Smogon Tiers to determine which Pokémon Ash can get then Ash isn't getting any of the Popular choices lmao.

A hefty amount of the Most Popular Pokémon aren't even Competitively viable.
Ash will never get things like a Decidueye or a Samurott going by this logic
Or he shouldn't have gotten Lucario or Sirfetch'd since they're both in NU

But Hey, if you guys wanna see Ash catch a Lando-T then I suppose that's fair game lol

Its a legendery, so itsmore likely for Go to catch it
