    I wonder if Oha Suta will spoil this as well.

    Hey, one can hope although considering all effort made to not give more info, maybe it won't be the case.
  3. I hope not, I don't want to be disappointed by getting some kind of disappointing news earlier than expected lol

    The only people I want to see Ash mentoring is his Pokemon.

    I find the idea of Ash becoming a mentor highly ridiculous and implausible.

    It's not that out of the question. What's implausible is him being a mentor type figure and not doing gyms.

    I could see him offering guidance to a rival. Say a rookie trainer he meets at the start of his galar journey who ash offers advice to throughout the series.

    I really like this idea. Maybe the concept of having multiple regions means we will see his Alola companions traveling around the world, maybe we get segments per episode. 10 minutes with Ash's adventure in Galar, and two shorter segments covering what his former companions are doing. They'd interact with other old characters in other regions, allowing us time to catch up on old characters and see what everyone is up to. All of this could intersect and end in a climactic arc near the end of everything.

    Not that I expect this. This is just the route I'd like to see this take.

    Also, with three of Ash's Pokemon having Thunderbolt in SM, I'd like to see another Electric-type on his team officially in Galar... I am definitely #TeamYamper for Ash, especially if it gains a secondary typing (and has a diverse movepool) upon evolution, to help differentiate it battle-wise from Pikachu.

    I am seriously fearing that we may get Misty and Brock for Ash's companion for the next series. Don't ask me why.

    If they do an "all regions" thing, we'll probably be seeing every old character.

    Misty hell noo.

    That's for sure, but my main fear is that they'll be the main companion staying for the whole series instead getting cameos.

    I don't see that ever happening. In the end of the SM cameo, Misty said she wants to make Cerulean Gym the strongest Gym in Kanto. She can't do that if she starts traveling again.

    Just show the Kanto character challenging her and that's it

    I don't think Misty or even Brock will ever be part of the show for an entire saga again. The anime has too much success with new female companions as seen with May/Dawn/Serena or the SM girls to go back to an old one. Plus marketing wise they always like to market the hell out of whoever the current female lead is.

  15. We should get Delia Ketchum and Professor Oak as the next companions

    I meant just as a regular gym leader, not a companion

    Not if it's a reboot.

    Actually if Galar is Ash's final region Misty and Brock would be quite appropriate. It started with them and it would end with them

    I can't see Ash being a mentor figure unless he is aged up.
