Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

Welp, so i guess Gohs Grookey is female due to its VA (Although i am pretty sure he is male).

Clemonts Luxray is voiced by a woman, but its confirmed male due to Luxray line having gender differences. Same VA voices Ash's Fletchling and Fletchinder, but a male voices Talonflame.

So here is the thing: I don't think Voice Actors matter in regards to the gender of a Pokemon, especially since Ash's Dragonite is likely a female, despite being voiced by a male.

I have a feeling it might be connected to the "bulk" of a Pokemon. Baby Pokemon, or middle stages are anthromorphized and therefore it would feel like they should have a juvenile sounding/shriller voice, therefore leading to a female seiyuu. The last evolution, if quite bulky in size would feel like that it might have a deeper, more powerful, gruff voice and therefore most likely leads to male seiyuu.

if we see new episode with Darmanitan making a trouble, we will actually can't wait who someone will evolve.
I hope it taunts or scare Bunnelby/Sentret then they would end up evolving.

Even so though, it most likely doesn't point towards the gender of a Pokemon (Ash's Leavanny is confirmed male, but his VA is female). Meowth is also voiced by a woman, despite being a confirmed male (Same VA as Leavanny).

However, despite gender in general, some species might work better with certain gendered VA (Leavanny works better for female, while for example Darmanitan would work better for a male, even if said Darmanitan is female).

This is why you cannot take a VA being male or female as definitive proof that a Pokemon is a male or a female.

I'm honestly surprised that Ash's Dragonite's gender wasn't brought up in the Iris fight, especially when Iris conversed with Dragonite about Ash.

I'm still hoping Dragonite is female. It would be neat for Ash to have a female ace for once.
Maybe Gengar is a girl?

JN give me a Lucario/Cinderace/Inteleon episode!
Why hasn't Grookey used a move yet?

It's very weird.
Grookey hasn't used a single move yet and it's been around for 13 episodes.

By Scorbunny's 13th episode it became a Raboot.

Even Sobble was shown helping battle Flygon in episode by it's 13th episode

I don't know why Grookey never battles?

I'm guessing they're going to save Grookey's first battle for a special occasion? Does anyone else think so?

That'd be even stranger than Sobble's?

I mean it did see Sirfetch'd battle.

I wonder if they'll pull an Inteleon and have Grookey meet a Rillaboom who inspires it

We DID see a Rillaboom in the Merchandise with Darkrai and Cresselia after all and we know that it can't be Goh's....
