I never considered the possibility of the Rocket-dan's new mecha being used for good, although I still think that given SM's track record, the mecha will most likely be treated as some generic threat and not as a plot device to save the region.
It'll probably blow up as soon as Jessie and James mobilize because that's the kind of thing that would happen to them. I'll be impressed if it actually does something important though like if we get some wannabe Rainbow Team Rocket episode.

If 140 is related to mohn I'd hope 141 would be the conclusion. Hmm maybe ash gets poipole back and so he can actually have a full battle in 142
At least Poipole's return could be somewhat believable during the Guzzlord crisis.
If they bother bringing him back though, they better let Poipole stay like Gliscor

Speaking of them, I would've expected some form of Rainbow Rocket-dan involvement at the League prior to finding out about Akuziking's appearance at the Alola League stadium, but now I'm guessing that if we get any sign of them it'll probably be in an episode after the tournament is over.

They would not dedicate a 6v6 match between Gladion and Kukui. Two characters with no significant relationship and HASN'T been built up across the entire saga
Yeah this. I like Gladion as much as the next guy, but I don't think he's important enough to warrant a whole on screen six on six battle.

I like Gladio a lot and after the way that Hau ended up being such a disappointing rival for Satoshi, Gladio has become my default favorite Alola rival. But even though I like him, I also doubt that the full battle during the exhibition match involves him challenging Kukui-hakase since we very rarely get to see rivals participate in full battles against anyone other than Satoshi.

A great example here was Alain who, even though had a full Team did only use Charizard for the Zygarde incident. I would've loved to see rest of his Pokemon in action there.

One thing I could see going in Gladion's favour is that the league is trying to bulk up on character dynamics, having duos and combinations that weren't often tried before. They already beefed up Kiawe and Gladion into legit rivals despite barely interacting before, so maybe something between Gladion and Kukui could happen.

Of course the fact he is fighting for his father could easily just lead up to a vindication story with Guzzlord, with Mohn actually being part of the whole thing. Winning a league would be small potatoes to actually getting him back after all.

I would've preferred if Gladio had more of a reason to want to win the Alola League, that way I would be able to empathize with him more if he does win. But his motivations seem lackluster so far and he's almost the same as Alain was in the sense that him participating in the League feels almost like something that was decided at the last minute to give Satoshi a challenge.

I think the cast should be just Ash, Victor, and Gloria. Ash would be tutoring Gloria and Victor. Ash will not battle the gyms. He's decided they've become tedious. Now he wants to teach the next generation of trainers how to be great.

You keep saying that despite him being far from the type of person who would mentor someone full-time. Him just getting "bored" of his goal makes little sense anyway given that determination and passion are his two biggest personality traits.

I also find it hard to imagine a kid who just spent a long time studying at the Pokemon School [yet learned nothing of value] decide that he wants to spend time passing on his knowledge to other trainers given that his Pokemon knowledge is ridiculously inconsistent to begin with. He's no Ilima.

Ash would be 20 years old in Sword & Shield. He was like 16 in my opinion in Kalos.
