Sun & Moon Characters Speculation Thread

    Ignition Why are the angry characters always the best ones?

    I hope Skull is constantly making trouble on Poni which leads to a Po Town arc

    Considering Plumeria is showing up, this is highly likely.

    With Plumeria showing up, that implies a Team Skull related arc, possibly.

    I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, as Galactic, Plasma (post-earthquake), and Flare all took around 90-100 episodes before they became main antagonists.

    DuquÊ? Too lazy to pick a pic

    Except there was some (good) foreshadowing for something big with these teams. I doubt it'll be the case for Team Skull, but have Plumeria finally stepping in it's a true bless.

    It isn't Guzma, and assuming he could not appear (doubtful, but not impossible), I'm fine if Plumeria does assume as Team Skull's leader for this. Maybe representing the Skulls at the league, everything is game. I'm sure glad for someone really interesting appearing by this point than for the last trial.

    Mega Altaria 4th anniversary of ORAS, 16th anniversary of RS

    Finally Plumeria is going to make her debut. Expecting her to be the big sister type like she is in the games and cares for the usual trio of grunts.

    I just want them to interact with the TRio again.

    It's real annoying TR vs TS was their only interaction.... any episode Team Skull appears in, they're always absent! Apart from that episode where only James stupidly appeared anyways.

    It's annoying because they had a far more entertaining chemistry with each other than they usually do the twerps. Hell I'd love another 'evil vs evil' rivalry like against Plasma, only more on the comical side this time of course.

    If Kahili does appear in the SM anime, it might be interesting if they gave her some sort of connection to the hotel manager Viren. They could either be related by making Viren Kahili’s father, or they could be business rivals since Kahili’s family runs the “Hano Grand Resort” in the games & Viren owns the “Rainbow Happy Resorts.”

    Crazy idea, but what if Professor Kukui turns out to be Ash's estranged father?

    TheWanderingMist Rufus is the best Kim Possible character

    Unlikely. Also, wouldn't his mother have, you know, said something the times she came to visit?

    Maybe she's saving the big surprise once Ash and Kukui are close enough, so he can be prepared for it. Canonically, it's hinted that Ash hasn't really seen his father much

    According to Shudo's novel adaptation, Ash's father abandoned the family just after Ash was born. Understandably, she was quite upset and vowed to ignore Ash's father even if he came back. However, she never actually divorced Ash's father. Meaning that if Kukui was indeed Ash's father, he would be practicing bigamy, which I would assume is a crime in the Pokemon world. Of course, it would certainly be a big surprise for Ash to find out he suddenly has a stepmother... (On the other hand, such a reveal could be material for the supposed emotional episode happening in the near future)

    In addition, in Shudo's novel adaptation, Ash also promised his mother before leaving on his journey that he would not end up like his father. So it is probably safe to say that Ash does not hold his father in high regard.

    However, it is worth mentioning that what's written in the novel adaptation is only Shudo's original intention for Ash's father, so who knows if the Pokemon anime team has decided to do something different after 20 years...

    They don't even acknowledge shudõ novel other then aspects of trios. So i highly doubt that they know that books even exists as the novelization doesn't even past the volume 2

    He wouldn't be practicing bigamy if him and Delia already separated

    Well, as far as i remember:
    Dawn: Dad missing
    Iris: Parents missing
    Serena: Dad missing
    Clemont and Bonnie: Mother missing

    Only May (and in general SM cast) had the family "complete", and mostly because Norman had a "prominent" role in the games as a gym leader.

    I don't think there is a particular reason behind this pattern, probably for writers is more convenient to have only one of the parents most of the time.

    You know, I too thought about that theory of Kukui being Ash's dad but I think it was doomed to fail the moment they introduced Burnett in the anime.

    Also, if I recall correctly Hikada - a staff on Battle Frontier - said Ash's dad and grandad were in a journey and they'd bring the dad up when they feel they did to develop Ash a bit more.

    We have the next poster. Source.


    No team spoilers (or any kind of spoiler), but it has that sense of finality to it, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's the last one.

    If they were going for referencing the final scene of Alola (the first SM theme song) where Ash, Pikachu, & Rotom are looking at the sunset, I like it
  20. playerking

    playerking Sick of dealing with idiots.

    I guess this poster is going to have to have to be around a while if it's the final one, which seems to be the case, unless it's the penultimate one before a poster about the league and/or a big arc right before the end.
