Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

You mean Penny? Well first off I don’t want Ash traveling to Paldea, but if he does go there, he should travel by himself. Also I think Ash would hate Penny and call her a freak. Same goes for Iono. I don’t plan on buying the games either but to be perfectly honest there’s no need for Ash to go to Paldea.
This is by far the one of the most out of character things that you would come up, there is no reason for Ash to call anybody a freak. He is really not that type of character and if you really think that then you really don’t know that much about Ash’s character at all.

This is still a competition to see who says the most out of character thing for Ash to do in the future. Well, there's not much competition when it's always the same people on the top.

I wanna play!

In what universe would Ash think or say that?

I think Ash shouldn’t trust Penny if I were in his shoes. But to be honest I don’t see Ash traveling to Paldea. The SV anime should focus on a new protagonist.

I wouldn't mind the idea of the upcoming pokemon arc to revolve around Ash still traveling the world and meeting the other male gen game protagonist (Gold, Ruby, etc) while building a team of legendary and mythical pokemon he meets in each region to further solidify his skills as a World Champion.

However, I can see Paldea playing a climatic point in the next story arc, but only in small segments of the adventure like how they did with Gen 8.

We get it. You don't think there is any need for Ash to go to Paldea. You don't need to reply to every single post saying that lol

Right now my expectation is if the anime were to continue Ash, Goh and Chloe continue on to Paldea. It's as seamless of a transition as possible.
Honestly think about it. If I was a betting man. That would be expectation. With as much criticism Journeys gets it's as seamless of a transition as physically possible than any region's saga before hand.

Ash - Nemona (Champions) Even with Ash Ketchum's ascension as World Monarch.
Goh - Arven (Researchers) Even if Goh were to catch Mew
Chloe - Penny (Students) Even if Chloe wasn't as main of cast member.

This is my expectation to be honest. The only one that rivals this as a transition process was from Kanto to Johto. At the very beginning. Which is why I'm eagerly anticipating the cast list for JN135.

Don't you get it? SatoSere is the hardcore Ash HATER here, he/she have been actively campaigning here for Ash to leave the anime for a long period of time and now resorting to disgusting tactics like character assassination to Ash character as a whole, knowing damn well that Ash is not going to say such a thing. It a shame that he/she have resort to using disgusting tactics like this when they can't get their way.

Dude I laughed so hard at their post. Ash screaming "freak!" isn't even something he'd do in episode 2, let alone episode 1,330.
I haven't played the game yet (waiting for the for the holidays to make the purchase) but I hear Penny is actually kind of rude?

I feel like Ash would be more likely to make a note of Penny's behavior than her appearance. Even early Original Series Ash (not the most tactful person on Earth in those days) wouldn't make a jab at Penny's appearance to her face, the most he might have done is make a side comment about it behind her back. I could see OS Ash getting slightly annoyed by Penny giving attitude but present-day Ash didn't seem too bothered by Chloe so I think he will be fine with Penny even if she's a bit rude.

I mean, spoilers aside, that really isn't true of her being rude in the big picture.

Was thinking, if Ash do return to the Paldea anime be it as the MC or as a mentor role , which team will he get? The full gen 9 team? or same as JN where he catches full evolve Mon ( give me Ash Zororak, Ash Tyranitar) mixing with his reserve that come back and evolve ( Hi Primeape) and the gen 9 team?

that would entirely depend on what they'll do for him if he returns for Paldea (which he likely will). Although I dont think there's really much that they can go off of with Paldea mons.

I think goh can't be the main character. The main character must be a warrior. Not just a catcher.

It would be silly for them to restart Pokemon. Again, someone from zero, we will miss him for the next 20 years.

Ash's plot didn't quite fit me. suddenly shown too strong. 2 series ago, even Alder was much stronger than Ash.

In DP, Flint dragged Ash with his only pokemon. In the same series, Ash, who beat Paul by force, remained at the master level and Paul remained at the Gym level.

It's ridiculous that he got so strong in only 2 series. No, Ash is still the same age. The man became better than everyone in 0 years.

I don't think they will 0 down Ash, but they will regress a little. The current Ash is already close to becoming a pokemon master.

I think a new character should come. He must be a warrior too.

Ash plays champion level matches and the new character is gym level.

We both watch more matches and Ash continues.

Goh can always stay. Because it is impossible for Goh to find his target or close to it. But he is not a character that can be the main character. Because he is just a catcher.

Ash Chole is the new hero and the Goh quartet makes for a satisfying quartet. It doesn't matter whether Goh should stay or go.

1 tactician, 1 warrior, 1 competitor and 1 performance pokemon should set out with such a quartet.

Battles and targets are important in anime. Should Ash stay, I think he can. The pokemon anime already means Ash. If there is to be a new memory, it should be a completely different memory, not related to the main character like Bayblade and Digimon.
