predictions of the future Scarlet and Violet anime

Why not both?

Edit: Kidding aside, I’d say Hisui. Kanto Arcanine is one of Gary’s signature Pokemon.
Yeah I’d pick Hisui too.

Frankly as started before I am tired of Ash only getting five captures each series since XY and would love to see him go on a catching spree. I want him to at least have one of every type which would mean anywhere from 9 to 17 depending on how many dual types and if they want to give him something to represent each type regardless of type overlap. Though only if the multiple regional team format continues. In which case I’d be okay with seven Gen 9 Pokémon.

At most and this is only if Ash is leaving. Since we’re likely hitting a 1000 Pokémon or at least 999 if they want to save that milestone for Gen 10 I kind of want to see Ash reach 100 Pokémon which depending on how you count Ash’s Pokémon such as counting all the Tauros it literally is just 17 away, but if you exclude them. Well Ash has or had over 50 Pokémon so like somewhere between 40-50.

I know that’s a lot, but Keep in mind Goh has got over 100. While I don’t see Ash catching everything that moves I’m genuinely curious what they’d pick for him if they could cut lose even if only a little. Like there was probably a number of stuff they wanted to give him but couldn’t work them in or didn’t make the cut.

Been following Ash's journey since i was a kid
If the next series follows a similar route of having Ash obtain a team consisting of past and new generation pokémon which ones would you like him to catch this time around that is if Ash does continue as the main character?

Here are my personal picks of what his team could consist of:

Pikachu
Arcanine,
mainly since he didn't get a fire-type in the current series.
Dunsparce, but only if it does end up getting a new evolution.
Tyranitar, preferably the very same Larvitar that he cared for in Johto.
Hisuian Zoroark, since LA will continue to be on store shelves for a long time.
A Gen 9 Pokémon, preferably one that has a type that differs from the rest of his team.
Mine:

Kanto: Kangaskhan( the one that took care of Pikachu when he a pichu) Wartortle ( Bulba not ever going to evolve so why not)
Johto: Tyranitar (The one that Ash took care off), Meganium (Bayleef evolve), Typhlosion (Quilava evolve), Croconaw (Totodile evolve)
Hoenn: Crawdaunt (Ash Corphish finally evolve), Blaziken or Swampert (Either 1 is ok, both would be good)
Sinnoh: Gabite/Garchomp (Ash Gible finally evolve), Empoleon
Unova: Zoura/Zoroak (normal or Hisuian would be ok), Gigalith (Ash Boldore finally evolve , offscreen trade with Goh?) Seismitoad (Palpitoad finally evolve), Servine/Serperior (Snivy finally evolves), Emboar (Pignite evolve) and Dewott/Samurott (Oshawott evolve, normal or Hisuian also ok for me) Bravivary( Normal or Hisuian also can)
Kalos: Gogoat? Tyrunt/Tyrantrum
Alola: Dartrix (Rowlet evolve), Alolan Sandslash, Kommo-o
Galar: Corviknight, Obstagoon,Dragapult
SV: Lechonk (Would love to see it fighting Ash for food) Sprigatito

I think the world tour format and Goh staying around depends if they want to continue promoting all the games (Pokémon Go, Masters EX, core series) and not just the current generation.

As for Nozawa still doing Goku, I think I read somewhere Toei considered a new VA for his adult version but since Nozawa was popular with fans, they kept her and the rest is story.

Just going by what I read in a place I don't quite remember years ago. Haven't checked though. Maybe a super DBZ fan can clarify?
To Rica, Ash is probably her greatest achievement, just like Jason Frank whose greatest achievement is being the Power Ranger.
Please, for all that's good in this world, just don't mix a good talent like Rika with an attention-seeker like JDF.

Let's be honest how much of going to past regions were actually promoting different games? Because alot of them were just generic backdrops and setting

Even if Ash loses the PWC, this would still be a step up for him. He would basically be fighting on equal footing with some of the strongest trainers in the franchise and it would be hard for them to ignore that.

Gatinko time, baby.
Said this before but I’ll say it again - reboot it, cowards. Go whole-hog with it and have Ash and Pikachu’s first meeting again if you wanna keep them. The works.

I think to do that they’d have to reboot the whole franchise. Games included.

Maybe save that sort of thing for a major anniversary point like the 30th anniversary if it comes out in 2026.

Oh I agree. My post was mostly in jest lol.

I can’t see Ash going anywhere. Will the writing to keep him be contrived as hell assuming he’s not some sort of mentor character or if he’s on a Gym quest? Absolutely.

That might be the best way to continue forward if they want to keep Ash around as the main character. It would at least be better than what BW did because it won't be canon to the past seasons.

And? From there, how would they move forward? They'll travel kanto, johto, hoenn, sinnoh, kalos, and so on, in that specific order again? Will they give him new companions or not? That's something that's easy to say but hard to execute.

I'd rather have him in a coma and remove all his past memories and battling skills and start from there lol.

Re-read the following posts. That post was mostly intended as a joke.

Mostly. Because there are people who said the same thing but not as a joke.
I mean…sure. In all seriousness whether they reboot either Ash or the anime as a whole I’m kind of struggling to think of a means of proceeding if they do intend on keeping Ash specifically as the main character and not a supporting one. If they transition him into a mentor role/supporting character or recurring character that’s an entirely different story.

Yeah, JN seems like a conclusion to Ash's entire journey already. But when he won the Alola league before we also kinda wondered what's next for him, then we got this. So who knows? Maybe something to do with past and future stuff since that's the theme of SV? Or intergalactic championship series where he battle the world champions from different planets lol.

I suspect Brock and Misty were around as a full circle contingency in Alola for if the writers had to end Ash's time on the show there

Team Rocket similarly also felt like a huge punishment from Giovanni was coming their way, which the writing skirted around for JN003 (very suspiciously because it really did feel like there would be consequences for choosing Bewear over their mission)

But corporate approved one bonus bucket list saga as long as it brought Goh aboard, everything is explained if it's true the original plan was to drop TRio at the end of Alola, that's why it's been awkward because TR was ready to choose the good life back there

Journeys introduced a number of figures and locations from past generations that we did not get to see during their respective series. Here are just a few examples, and pardon me as I don't really remember or going to name all of them:

Gen I - The Seafoam Islands
Gen III - The Proper Battle Frontier (As in its actual Location)
Gen V - The Desert Region
Gen VI - Wikstrom and Drasna

If the next series does follow a similar route, what past elements would you like to see finally introduced? Here are just a few of my ideas:

Gen I - Cerulean Cave
Gen II - Janine
Gen III - Wally
Gen IV - Porygon-Z (And the rest of its line, but I wanted to have Janine for Gen II)
Gen V - Relic Castle
Gen VI - AZ
Gen VII - Rainbow Rocket

I'm not including Gen VIII since there is still a chance that we might see some stuff, but I don't expect them to show everything at this point and I am personally okay with that.
