Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

I know the reserve debate died, but technically it would make a lot of sense not to confirm reserves 2 months before they are used

People would just be impatient and not appreciate what's going on until them, revealing them at the end of July 22nd or even August 12th works the most spectacularly

Still coping on that? No reserves are gonna be used for M8. the paul ep confirmed it and the steven vs ash preview and mag confirmed it.

I don't think Ash is getting replaced or anything, but I do think he is gonna win the PWC. Everyone is counting on him, we didn't get those wholesome episodes for nothing, his family, his Pokemon, the entire Alola region, even freaking Lance is counting on him winning. I saw his interaction with Lance something like "You are the last hope Kanto has".

100% Agreed!
Making Ash leave after this season would make it worse, There's no point in him leaving after Journeys even with more cameos and Fanservice (Do I have to see more Cameos? NO!)
Just keep Ash around until he's ready to become an Pokémon Master (no, becoming Monarch does not make him a Pokémon Master)
Ash can have his own series on YouTube. SV can have completely new characters.

It would be great if he used Infernape and Torterra against her, but of course I expect the Journeys team to be used instead as usual.
He should have brought in Infernape, it'd be more believable if Infernape was helping him take her down
They truly teased us with Infernape wanting to fight Moltres, then Infernape popping back up with that AU Journeys Ash

12/9/22 NOT THE ENDGAME?

They teased us with Greninja the most. Infernape coming back to defeat Cynthia (which was only teased once in a fantasy) but Greninja not coming back to beat an opponent it lost to three times would be ludicrous.
Plot twist Torterra defeats Cynthia’s Garchomp :D

Man's a lost cause, leave him be. Should've realized that when he went all in on stating Ash is leaving the series when that's the most unrealistic thing to happen in the pkmn anime.
If the reserves actually did stuff, the "Ash is leaving" crowd would potentially have substance to their theories.

But nah, let's just ignore the Butch/Cassidy episode. Team Rocket had an out and didn't take it, quite clear it's not ending anytime soon

I'm glad there's an alternate universe out there where Ash does use Infernape on a regular basis, and doesn't have him gathering dust on a ranch for eternity.

That's the same thing people said back then about Ash never really catching a Ghost Type Pokemon, especially a Gengar. We can't be sure about nothing, as Pokemon is continuosly changing.
Well, some fans though Rowlet will evolve into Decidueye and would be finally a Ash's first ghost type pokemon but instead really was a troll tier episode with that everstone.

There's an increasing rumor around the idea that Ash might catch Mewtwo. Honestly, I always thought that might happen at some point. Mainly because Ash is the only human in the world that Mewtwo has had somekind of bond; and in he catches him, Ash could help him to evolve in his Psychic/Fighting form, which would reflect Ash's battle spirit.

However, there are a few conditions for Ash to do that:
+ To fight and defeat Mewtwo, Ash would need his "Ultimate Pokemon Team" with his most powerful and experienced Pokemon. Greninja is a MUST in the team.
+ Catching Mewtwo should be presented as Ash's Ultimate Challenge, similar to how in the games catching Mewtwo is your ultimate challenge after defeating the Elite Four.
+ To catch Mewtwo, Ash will definitely need to have a Master Ball, because is there's one Pokemon that would need such PokeBall to capture it, it's Mewtwo.
+ I can assume that, once Ash catches Mewtwo, the scenenario would be similar to Goh and Suicune: Ash's will keep Mewtwo at Oak's Lab, and Mewtwo will use it as his home/base, but he will keep moving through the world by his own while doing his "mission".
+ Obviously, Mewtwo's existence must still be a secret, which means Ash wouldn't be able to take him on his team as all the other Pokemon. However, once Ash is in a very dangerous situation, Mewtwo could come to his help. For example, in battling a villain like Giovanni, or facing a extremely dangerous Pokemon like the return of Eternatus.

What do you think?
I would add more interesting and absurdly condiction:
+ Make this at new series, not during JN.
+ Search and catch legendaries for making a main team: Pikachu, Mewtwo, Ho-oh, Lugia, Solgaleo, Koraidon.
+ Make a long obstacle Tobias tier rival, main team likely be: Giratina, Lunala, Miraidon, Genesect, Articuno, Zapdos.
