Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

Just pointing this out but Rowlet could still technically evolve.
Could it? Yes.
Should it? Yes.
Will it? Probably not.
Not because of the everstone or marketability in general. Its hugely popular Ash mon. I think out of All of Ash's bse stage pokemon, barring bulbasaur, rowlett would probably be the most popular. And unlike say, oshawott, whose arc would have benifited from an evolution, i dont see any progression for rowlett even if it evolves.

Can´t believe ash use shorts even for a wedding

Shippers (and fujoishi) are going insane as we speak
Oh no.. Don't let Serena see Ash in the wedding suit.. Otherwise, she would go crazy and die from nosebleed.
Legend says she still rewatches the "Royal Ash" match thing.
Braixen, like Cinderace, is just a furry. Delphox is better.
If Serena came back, I'd find funny a subplot of Cinderace falling for either Braixen or Delphox lol

(but then it'd have been funnier if that happened during the Raboot phase)

It can't be a triangle if one part (Pikachu) is uninterested at the other (the hypothetical Lopunny)
 

WaterShuriken

"I..I..Iron Tail, Pikachu."
Mark my words if Dawn's Buneary has evolved, Cinderace is gonna fall for her.

We'll get a love triangle between Pikachu, Lopunny, and Cinderace :p

It can't be a triangle if one part (Pikachu) is uninterested at the other (the hypothetical Lopunny)

And even then that's still not a love triangle. A true love triangle between opposite genders requires at least one bi or gay individual.

If (A) Cinderace wants (B) Lopunny but (B) Lopunny wants (C) Pikachu, that is not a love triangle. (C) Pikachu would need to want (A) Cinderace.

The term love triangle often gets misinterpreted imo.

I don't have the full context but it just seems to be the magazine is playing around the idea of "who would things look like for the boys whenever one (or all) of them get married". No relation to 2/3 of them being a couple but more in regards to wondering about their futures (and I'd say their potential as "husband" lol). The pic was made the way it looked like most likely to appeal to the magazine's audience

Obviously, I'm not familiar with the magazine. Just doing an educated guess considering what we've seen lol

It calls my attention that, in the last episode, Goh captured a Pansear and a Panpour, but not a Pansage. And I think I know why.

Pansage is literally a "Grass Monkey", but Goh already has one of those: Grookey. Sure, Goh wants to catch'em all, but this is the Generation of Grookey as a starter, which means they can't give Goh a Pokemon that may "eclips" one of his main Pokemon.

Also, I'm pretty sure that, in case they find a Pansage in the future, it will be Ash who will capture it. Why?, simple, because the same way Ash's Dragonite is a reminder of one of his past friends (Iris), Pansage could be a reminder of another one: Cilan. I DO believe a Pansage will suit for Ash's team, and unlike Cilan's, a Pansage for Ash could eventually evolve.
 
Isn't the "wedding" should have been discussed in Character Speculation thread or its specific thread? This thread is for pokemon speculation, no?

I don't think that works because its not like we'd see Go's Pansage all that much, its not like Go's captures have to have any real purpose.

One of Lucario's movests must be of the steel type.

It could be Flash Cannon or Meteor Mash.

I cannot embrace that the steel-type features of a steel-type pokemon remain in the background.

Lucario stands out as a fighting type. But also steel type.
 

Almighty Zard

He has returned.

I would honestly rather Cilan just return than see Ash get a pansage of his own.

If they are going to continue the "Ash gets companions pokemon" trend then i would rather Ash get a crustle or stunfisk (perhaps the galar variant) instead.

Why not steel beam?

It could also be Steel Beam. But Gen 8 moves are mostly represented by Gen 8 pokemons in my opinion.

I think Goh or Ash might catch Duraludon.

I think it is more likely that we will see it in the new generation, not in the old generation pokemon.

Oh, I hope we see it in Ash's Lucario.

Pansage would literally just get thrown into the lab and forgotten about like Darmanitan and the non-Dewgong/Kaijukarp Water types

I think it's more of a hint that Cilan is going to appear at some point, if Ash were to get a grass monkey then it'd most likely be Zarude. The elemental monkeys aren't exactly popular, Ash's Unova capture if he gets one would be Chandelure or something else.

Just because Goh gets something doesn't mean Ash needs to get the matching counterpart, Goh got both Exeggutor, both Nidoran, etc. Speculating captures for Ash based on Goh's is a bit pointless

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.
