Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

Top Talonflame: HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE!
Honestly, I am not ready for ANOTHER gimmick. JN made me sick of them. Z-moves, Mega and Dynamax is too much. It also make me feel like Ash can only win due gimmicks
Ditto.

Maybe Pikachu will gain the Flying Tera type based on the Mystery Gift one upon release.

I can't imagine how Terastal will work with anime. Like, having a chandelier on your head can get in the way of various attacks. It would definitely slow Pikachu down during Quick Attack. Or maybe they'll just ignore it like when Pikachu gigantamaxed that one time and give it to Pokemon that don't move a lot. All these mechanics are fine in a game but you can't have good action scenes in anime with that ****.

Depends on what type of terrastralizing is going to happen. We dont know how the electric one will look. If the electric one will be something lighter then it can run. Besides i am pretty sure, like how they revealed G-max, some pokemon are going to have a different appearance for terrastralising into a certain type.

problem is, how does Pikachu benefit from this without a fly as an attack option? since doesn't the change in typing mean that it changes what moves get the STAB boost and power up? It would be kind of dumb if Pikachu was given a different typing through this new gimmick but had no moves to go with it.

Honestly as boring as it sounds it wouldn't surprise me if Pikachu retains being an electric type, since if they were to give him a different type, he would need a move to go with it.

With Thunderbolt, Iron Tail and Quick Attack being so iconic by this point, electroweb would be the only move on the chopping block to be replaced, and I personally don't want it to go, it's more than shown how versatile it is.

I like Electro Web too but I think Ash could be versatile with the Fly move as well. Setting aside the Tera potential it could be useful when dodging enemy attacks since it would launch Pikachu into the sky

Well I can already tell there's going to be a battle where Pikachu uses Iron Tail on the crystal crown and that's like the final hit to end the battle lol.

I feel like you could make a sort of type-triangle from the three existing gimmicks.

Here is the way I see it:

Mega-Evolution (Speed) > G-Max (Defense)
G-Max (Defense) > Z-Moves (Power)
Z-Moves (Power) > Mega-Evolution (Speed)

Once again this was just for fun and even I highly doubt that this is the case, but I felt like sharing this since we're on a speculation thread anyway!

A time travel plot-focused adventure story in Pokémon could be great. Ash could travel around time and space and witness key events in the Pokémon World while trying to prevent the bad guys from stopping time or something like that. Each era could have a mini arc (around 5-6 episodes), with them all being somehow tied to the bad guys, while Ash also catches new Pokémon.
Here are some ideas for the key events Ash could time travel to:
1. The expedition team in South America that first discovered about Mew's existance
2. The burning of the tower in Ecruteak City
3. The era that Legends Arceus takes place in
4. The first time Rayquaza mega evolved to save the world
5. The original dragon being splited in Reshiram and Zekrom
6. The Great War in Kalos

It's such an interesting premise, and this would also allow Ash to continue as a protagonist even if he becomes the MOnarch
The Kalos War and the Original Dragon split are two events I really want to see.
