Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

This is just a theory an unlikely one I'll admit, but I think Ash will stick around till they reboot the games. Which will happen once they run out of dualities (which may or may not have a third thing) for the box cover duo to represent.

The Box Duos (and Trios) represent big important things. There is only so many of those.
 
Technically remakes already reboot the games

Momentai!
Question since ash is staying in the anime what spoilers you think they'll show for tomorrow's preview announcement

Also besides SwSh and the Anime, did this Gen even do ANYTHING else with Galar?
There was the Manga. And plushies. Lots of Galar plushies.

What else would they do with Galar?

That would take a loooooong time, since duality is incredibly common.

Well yeah, but the box duos have so far been "major opposites" they've done a lot of the stuff that'd be "top god" level (or close too it) in mythology. They tend to save smaller opposites for the minor legendary.

I'd like to discuss this since I enjoy world building and symbolism like that. Maybe even make a thread discussing dualism in Pokemon. But I'm still recovering from my phlebotomy from earlier today (they took a pint of blood out of me). I'd rather go to bed.

I can think of an infinite number of astronomical dualities tho.

>Pokemon Einstein and Pokemon Niels bohr
There. Gen 10 confirmed.

Pokemon: Urza and Pokemon: Mishra…and the third Legendary being Yawgmoth.

He's just being phased out a little slower, ripping the bandaid off doesn't help the Pokemon company

I guarantee you he'll be gone by year 30

You know a old saying goes i guess is:

Rumors are just rumors they really don't need to be real on Ash leaving meaning hey everyone can choose to what they themselves believe in and not the opposite way you know.

Meaning do i believe Ash'll stick around maybe longer? Yes til we all know when ever he decides to be ready to retire and some one else takes over that role for Ash but hey that can be the future can't it?

Meaning do i believe Ash'll be here more then 30 years plus years from now? Answer yes. I mean really him leaving would just put anew person for his role as protagonist and since he's been here for " How long? " i don't see that happening at least not anytime soon.

As for this rumor it's just fake meaning i've chosen what's real what isn't.. - More like a small gain of salt if you will...

Meaning Hey just be who you are and believe what you believe in and shape your future. Not the opposite alright?

So you know live your dream make it real - make sense? - And true yeah it doesn't help the company really.

I think it makes more sense for the announcement to be next week after showcasing the last paldean starter (quaxly)

World's biggest Incineroar stan
The anime was on my mind mostly lol
But that could be because the Anime takes up about 70% of this franchise
Ah. Well not much besides Go starters and Ash’s Galar duplicate. TRio's Morpeko only made me hate it even more though lmao
Also besides SwSh and the Anime, did this Gen even do ANYTHING else with Galar? Every Single thing in Gen 8 besides the aforementioned, seemed more Sinnoh focused than anything
Best I could think of is Masters. We got Leon as the first of the most rare type of character, about half of the cast is in by now, and they received a lot of alts (3 seasonal events wete Galar only and I think the only other regions to do that is Unova and Johto). Leon and Raihan also appeared in Unite iirc.

TIL the last time they had Go capture anything, was literally when he caught Regieleki. Lmao.

Which, again, shows you he's remaining in the episodes because they want to slow down on drawing his new Pokemon for now

Seeing Mew again will probably make him hyper enough to catch like 50 new mons in 2023 though

Just to make a possible prediction for friday's project mew supposed finale, I've got three scenarios I've speculated in other threads;


Scenario 1) The project mew team raid battle against Mew, but are defeated by Mew, then Mew is about end them until Grookey and Goh somehow manages to calm Mew down enabling Goh to befriend Mew and catch it.


Scenario 2) The project mew team raid battle for Mew, and somehow Goh manages to catch Mew in order to calm it down. He then decides to leave Mew with the Project Mew team while he focuses on his dream to complete the pokedex after accomplishing his goal to catch Mew.


Scenario 3) The project mew team raid battle and lose to Mew. Goh then somehow befriends Mew but is unable to catch it. The project Mew team learn some lesson about how enigmatic of a Pokemon Mew is and realize its best to not capture it and just let it roam as some creatures are best left as a mystery. (THIS SCENARIO WILL NEVER HAPPEN!)


Scenario 4) I can even see the writing staff doing another fake-out, by having the project mew team fail their mission, only for Mew to sneakingly allow Goh to catch him towards the ending of the episode as a surprise by disguising himself as another pokemon Goh had never caught just to surprise him of his capture in the pokedex entry. As a testament middle finger up at the fans that dislike Goh.

Overall, as usual, I don't expect for any of these scenarios to happen as I'm usually wrong and tend to overestimate the story quality of pokemon sometimes.

However, based on following the start and climax of the project mew story, my best prediction is that Goh will catch Mew and may decide to leave it with the Project Mew Team to research it in a humane manner. After all, like Ash, Goh aims to accomplish his goal (catch Mew), and he's also apart of research team which has ambitions to study it. Reminiscing Professor Oak's lecture to Goh to joining project Mew in the beginning, Professor Oak felt it would be a good idea if Goh could share his dream with others (Project Mew).


As for the future of pokemon anime, I expect Ash to continue to travel the world and eventually visit the gen 9 region, while catching more powerful pokemon such as Legendaries and Mythical types. Because Ash is now ranked as the strongest trainer in the PWC tournament, I see no point in the anime continuing the traditional story format of Ash having a starter pokemon or catching regular regional pokemon, especially since he should be more than capable of taming wild legendaries just to show off his tenacity as a Monarch.

I think journey's hinted to this concept becoming part of a future story after showcasing Ash battling and losing to numerous legendries showcased in Journeys (Mewtwo, Articuno, Moltres etc) as well with Leon losing to Eternatus.


Well, I guess Scenario 3 came true after all. I remember saying Project Mew was a sinking ship, and its was portraited on a wall in Ash's hotel room as a prelude.

Guess this could mean that Goh will be departing from this series.

I think Gou will probably stay.
If he really did leave, what would be the point of the developers to consider him as the official protagonist?
