Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

Mythical-Moonlight

You cannot Escape Giant Plush Inteleon!
According to someone who saw the leaked episode,

Goh has Plusle and Chloe has Minun.

(Could just be temporary considering Plusle and Minun already have Trainers. Maybe the Repair People will give the two Pikachu clones to them???)

Not sure if this is true tho. Could just be BS for all we know at this point

I hope Ash to catch Psychic and Fairy type Pokemon. I know Ash has Mr. Mime, but it is mostly taking a role as housekeeper. So, I want Ash to have Psychic/Fairy type Pokemon which he can actually use it for battle.

The Fairy Types are a difficult choice, considering most of them are too "girly". I have a few candidates, though:
+ Togepi/Togetic/Togekiss: Back in Kanto, Ash was who founf the Pokemon Egg from where Misty's Togepi was born. Since Togekiss is a Pokemon that can use Aura Sphere, just like Lucario, it might work for Ash.
+ Zacian: During the Darkest Night, it was obvious Ash and Goh created a bond with Zacian and Zamazenta. Goh expressed interest to capture Zamazenta someday, so why wouldn't Ash capture Zacian too?
+ Galarian Weezing: Back in Kanto, Ash already used a Weezing once and won a battle; so it would be fitting for Ash to capture a version of this Pokemon that have the Fairy Type.

For the Psychic types, there are several candidates:
+ Orbeetle: Between the Galar Pokemon that Ash might capture in the future, this is a good candidate.
+ Alola Raichu: We have already saw Ash using a Raichu without evolving Pikachu, and since this regional form has the Psychic type, I believe it is a good candidate. It could also be a Raichu evolved from a Pikachu knowing the more Surf.
+ Mewtwo: Mew has become the endgame for Goh, and if he actually manage to capture, then I believe Mewtwo MIGHT be capture by Ash. On one hand, we know Ash and Mewtwo already share a bond; and on the other hand, I don't see why they have brought Mewtwo back into the anime after so many years if they don't have a plan for him. Ash could even give him the MegaEvolution X, becoming part Fighting Type.

Okay can we seriously stop with this whole ridiculous Ash can’t get “x” Pokémon because it’s too “girly” argument. A Pokémon being feminine or “girly” doesn’t prevent Ash from getting it.

Heck most of the Pokémon that are called “girly” aren’t as overly feminine as some people try to make them out to be and can appeal to both genders.

Practically any of the Psychic or Fairy type Pokémon can work.

What are Absol's recommended moves and ability in competition?

That has never stopped people from lumping specific Pokémon with Ash before. Also the whole thing about it not making sense narratively and would be pure random could be random could be said for a lot of Pokémon including ones that Ash already has.

Look it’s fine if you don’t like Absol personally as everyone has their preferences, however just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s not a decent Pokémon, and Absol is pretty popular so I’m not seeing the problem with some people speculating on it going to Ash.

I mean heck were we not supposed to be speculating on Ash getting a Riolu just because some people here hated Riolu/Lucario and didn’t like the other Pokémon that were showing up at the time?

That's not my point.

Dragonite and Gengar are 1st gen Pokemon, guess what region the series takes place in (the vast majority)?
Lucario was literally the Pokemon that most people wanted Ash to have far more than Absol like not even up to debate. Other Pokemon might be up for debate but not Absol.
Sirfetch'd and Dracovish are 8th generation Pokemon.

What literal purpose would Absol serve for Ash being a standalone dark type? It would have to be a writer/executive dream rather than one that makes normal sense.

I feel like Weavile would make more sense at this point. Absol feels wholly fan fiction, and I don't mean the level where its possible with something like Lucario.

Koharu hypothetically getting Minun after what happened with Galarian Ponyta feels the dumbest idiotic move ever.

Sure Minun probably could act like a random Go capture, and Koharu barely uses it but why?

Wait what? where are you getting this whole Chloe getting a Minun idea from, since as far as I know nothing even remotely suggest or hints at Chloe getting a Minun.
Plus Minun already has a trainer in the episode, so I doubt the trainer will part with it.

Well I don’t see how accurate that person that saw the leak episode is, since most COTD episodes didn’t have said COTD part with their Pokémon to give to the main characters, plus since these COTDs have a car and company named after their Pokémon, it would be weird for them to continue to have that if they didn’t have the Pokémon with them. I would rather Goh and Chloe catch wild ones then get some other trainers Pokémon.
In competitive? It’s usually:
Justified
Swords Dance
Knock Off
Sucker Punch
Play Rough/Superpower
what is Absol’s signature move?

I think the idea is more about rewarding Pokemon to them, not necessarily giving them emotionally connected trainer Pokemon.

Think the fighting dojo with Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee over something like Princess Salvia and Togekiss.

Doesn’t have one but it’s usually associated with Razor Wind or Night Slash (it has Super Luck)

This is 100% just attention seeking.

It’s not a case of oh well if a Pokémon is not gen 1 or 8 Pokémon but is a standalone mono type Pokémon it would serve no purpose.

At the end of the day Absol while not being necessarily as popular as Lucario, is still a popular Pokémon and is one of the more popular gen 3 Pokémon . It also adds a Dark type Pokémon to Ash’s team as well as giving his team some gen 3.

Also try to accuse of a Pokémon as feeling fan fiction is weird when if you had gone back in time and told some at the beginning of Journeys what Ash’s team would be by episode 60 you would have had some people that would say that it sounds to much like fan fiction.

Yes we get a lot of episodes in Kanto and gen 8 is the current generation, however Journeys is still a world traveling series so it’s perfectly in line for Ash to get Pokémon from any of the 8 current regions.

Let’s be honest here if we look at past series I’m sure that you can easily find Pokémon that Ash caught that some people probably thought that it didn’t make sense for Ash to catch said Pokémon.
