Sun & Moon Characters Speculation Thread

Maybe the whole Mohn arc will continue after SM if the rumours of Galar being an 'all star' series are true, with Gladion and Lillie charted searching for their father in episodes here and there.

Part of me hopes this is the reason some SM Pokemon got the short end of focus in this series. I'd love if Mallow kept Shaymin into Galar for a little while for example or Lana got an arc with Sandy. Maybe they can get fuller teams.
As long as Kiawe gets the Kanto episodes, challenging Brock and giving us a proper battle with Sabrina, I don't care.
Kiawe deserves to stay a important character, he's the best thing to come from this saga!

I'd really dislike that scenario since I feel that the mystery of Mohn's current location has been stretched far enough already, and much like with Magearna's awakening, my patience for the resolution of that subplot is wearing thin.

Having Magearna activated and limelighted for what are likely only about half a dozen episodes left of SM would seem a waste though. It would make sense if they were saving its proper screen time for SS. Same for the other girls' secondaries like Sandy and Shaymin who've had barely any development at all.

In the case of Suiren and Nagisa, I'm not sure what more there is left to explore when it comes to them. Nagisa seems like she was only ever caught as a way to promote the Kanto remakes anyway, and I doubt that she'll evolve in the next saga even if Suiren appears again.

We already have hints on how Magearna gets reactivated, since her eyes glow whenever Lillie exhibits strong emotion. I would expect some payoff when the method has been foreshadowed. I don't think Mohn is the missing ingredient, although finding him would be a strong motivation and I think it's a tad silly for him to still be in Alola.

If emotions are what might reactive Magearna, then I think Lilie reuniting with Mohn would be the key to its awakening since that would probably be one of the most emotional moments of Lilie's life.

I was hoping that we would see Lusamine and Mohn get back together when they reunite, but now I get the sinking feeling that Lusamine will decide that it's better for Mohn to not remember his past like in the games.

Eh... I don't know. In the games, there is a REASON Lusamine decided that Mohn is better off not remembering/ knowing. From Mohn's disappearance to the start of the games. (And this is coming off the Ultra Timeline mind you. Not the vanilla one where she was worse and tried to leave her kids for the Beasts/ intentionally tried to cause a crisis and tried to attack Lillie while at the height of the madness.) She mistreated her kids, mistreated the pokemon she was suppose to care for, took advantage over others and caused an extra dimensional crisis with her attempt to stop Necrozma... all with the goal of "trying to get him back" in mind.

Mohn would have been miserable with all that info.

In the anime, Lusamine did NONE of these things outside of neglecting her kids and smothering them when she DID come around to give attention. So there is less harm to Mohn remembering.

I hope they do that. Lusamine's too good for Mohn, especially in this universe....

Plus.... the guy's literally the least interesting of every SM character conceived. I was hoping he just died offscreen and would never be mentioned

The heck is wrong with you?

Lusamine isn't the only person Mohn is important to. Plus, you know, Mohn's probably the one who spent more time with the kids in the first place given that anime!Lusamine is a workaholic.

The anime tends to be more happy go lucky than the games, so if Lusamine and Mohn meet again (and I'm 99% sure they will by the end of SM) then I think they'll get back together which will make their kids happy.

I actually agree about him being a rather insipid character. For a while I thought that he'd just be left out of the anime considering that he wasn't even relevant until the last third of the Alola saga. But then again I thought the same thing about Guzma and Hau, yet they ended up becoming important despite their late arrivals.

Personally, I can see that working. He even has the final evolutions of Pikachu and Rowlett.

The way they set up the teams against Guzzlord might be heavy foreshadowing tbh.

  • Champion: Ash/Kukui
  • Elite 4:
    • Hala
    • Olivia
    • Nanu
    • Hapu.
  • 8 Gym Leaders:
    • Gladion (Dark)
    • Kiawe (Fire)
    • Hau (No type)
    • Lillie (Ice/Fairy)
    • Lana (Water)
    • Mallow (Grass)
    • Sophocles (Electric)
    • ???
And maybe Illima completing the 8th?

By the way Hau and the other Ultra Guardians dealt with one of the Shiny Guzzlords, I believe they were telling us indirectly that Hau will take Ash's place in the Ultra Guardians once Ash leaves Alola.
Hau replacing Satoshi in that group would actually be really amusing, although I feel like the Ultra Guardians probably won't even exist after Satoshi leaves the region since it seems like the Ultra Beasts have all been handled by this point.

Yep, would have been nice if they actually gave the group one big arc against Matori's group(A plot that literally went nowhere.... all the cool Team Rocket members always get ditched after one appearance. Gozu, Domino, Attila/Hun... they could literally do a Rainbow Rocket with just anime Rocket members if they wanted!). Though hopefully they give Team Rocket the main arc next saga, kill off Matori, Giovanni gets some remorse from his actions and disbands the org before getting arrested, the TRio get pardoned and are free to do whatever, and the end of Team Rocket is complete! Leaving Ash free to get replaced after winning the Galar League without anything feeling unfinished and the TRio getting a proper send off

Instead their final mission was super rushed and not really a mission at all...

Plus, there's always the chance that others are leaving Alola too. Lillie should stay for now so they can work on giving her a goal in Alola episodes instead of giving her in the very last minute, but I can see Kiawe heading off so he can have his rematch with Brock in one episode. Kiawe inspired to participate in the Indigo League due to Ash's accomplishments, and from his earlier interest. And given Soph has an interest in space, it'd be neat if they sent him off to meet Liza and Tate, it'd never happen but it'd be awesome if Brodie showed up in that episode :D


And I don't see the need for them to exist anymore as a group, the whole UB crisis is over.... they're out, and SWSH isn't going to add more. I'd rather see Ranger characters like Jackie to show up and do mediocre stuff like the Golem thing
