Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

ChampioN One

One Piece.... Is real!!
Going by that, there is actually a possibility that this is another release mon plot like what happened with Chimchar and Tepig. Although we need more clarification if what was said is true.
But isn't it too late for that?

True, but I think it would be an interesting direction for Goh if he got a Pokemon that was recently abandoned its Trainer.
Assuming it does go to Go. Although due to apparently Grookey being revealed to already have a trainer does make me lean more towards Go owning Grookey as I really don't think they'll have Ash own two mons in one team that had either been abandoned or left its trainer even if it's already been done like in the BW saga. Still won't rule out Ash owning it tho.

So Grookey might already have a trainer? If they aren't going the Chimchar route maybe the trainer is Hop
Come to think of it, if this post esquilo09 made shows Pokémon that are showing up soon in the anime. Then if Grookey does belong to Hop then he could easily also have a Corvisquire and Dubwool if he shows up.


Is this anime related?

I honestly wouldn't be shocked if Grookey is focused too much on drumming than battling. I don't see them introducing Hop only because of how much Goh is like that Character in my own opinion.

It gets lost and needs to be brought back to its trainer. Bring out the bonding scene just like Bulbasaur was back in the Original Series and sees that Grookey is more happy with the heroes vs staying by their side.

Who would do the bonding tho lmao.

Alright... So I got my final conclusions: I'm gonna bet that it'll either be a Chimchar, Snivy, or even a Bulbasaur scenario. Either it gets abandoned, it leaves its trainer on its own, or its original caretaker/owner leaves it with the MCs cause I extremely doubt Grookey's original trainer is going to be a major character. Likely just a COTD.

So Grookey already has a Trainer eh?

Seems a little repetitive to do the same "Trainer Abandons their Pokémon" plotline after we had Gengar for that already.

Not to mention there will be a LOT of comparisons to Chimchar. (Both Abandoned Monkey Starters)

But also Grookey seems a little too happy in the Previews if it's indeed an abandoned Pokémon? So that's a bit strange

The option is still there since Grookey already has a trainer. Although there are technically two other options and that Grookey will just leave on its own or the original trainer will just leave it with the main cast (I can't exactly tell who Grookey will end up belonging to from there)

As other users have stated that the abandonment plot line has already been used this time with Ash's Gengar.

That's why I'm thinking it's more of a Bulbasaur situation. Bulbasaur was the leader of a hidden village that showcased its character development right away.

With Grookey it's possible that it just wants to Drum and is focused on wanting to become Rillaboom the drummer in the band. He wants to be a leader in a band. As well as dealing with a trainer just like Bulbasaur did.

(I hope this analogy makes sense).

Nah it does make sense. Main difference being that Bulbasaur was still wild. In this case, the scenario will seemingly be about one of the 3 scenarios that I listed earlier although the abandonment plot is prob less likely so let's just go with the Snivy or Bulbasaur scenario that I said. It may either just leave on its own or its original trainer just decides to have the main cast take Grookey. Unless they go with the abandonment plot again for Go this time around which isn't impossible.

I can see where you're going with this. So it'd be like a "character gives Pokemon away" situation except that the Pokemon is coming to an MC rather than them giving one away.
