Oh and for the sake of the threads purpose, I actually kind of suspect that Luxio will forever stay in its middle stage, while Heliolisk returns as his electrical powerhouse after the gym battle. I also think Bunnelby will be the only team member to actually evolve..
Diggersby, Chespin, Luxio, Dedenne and Heliolisk would be a pretty cool travelling team for him I think..
Truthfully, i don't want Clemont
to take Heliolisk
with him after the 5th Gym battle. I mean what use would it have, its already a fully evolved pokemon. Also who would be the main pokemon for Clembot
to use against the challengers. And Clemont
is probably going to get that Luxio
which i believe might actually evolve to a Luxray
This would be more possible if Luxray
gets a Mega Evo, and truthfully presently i only see Clemont
as the possible candidate for getting a "Key Stone". The chances are more for him because of his father who is already a Mega Pokemon users (especially considering the fact that he may actually have 2 Mega Pokemons with him i.e., Mega Blaziken
and possibly a Mega Ampharos
as well). On the other hand, the writers like to showcase Ash
as an under-dog, so his chances are a lot less (unless Pikachu
gets a Mega Evo).
Another factor to note is that Luxio
might actually be a pokemon related to Clemont
before he got his Helioptile
(which eventually evolved to Heliolisk
I want the groups team to be a fresh one and not contain any already trained pokemon, because having something like that wouldn't be beneficial to anyone (aka. Charizard
during the Unova EN
arc). If needed, he can get another pokemon (maybe belonging to a different Gen, though not considering a 6th or 4th Gen one) later on in the series.
