    Sun & Moon Pokémon Speculation Thread

    Welcome to the new edition of the Next Pokémon thread, where you can share your theories on which Pokémon might be caught, evolved or released by the characters starring in the Sun & Moon anime. Of course, you can also speculate what personalities/roles the Pokémon might have.

    Please mind the following:

    • Don't diss or mock others if their predictions differ from yours. If you think someone's speculation is unlikely to happen, too farfetched or flat-out impossible, you can debate with them, but please stay respectful at all times.
    • If you suspect that someone's trolling, please contact a mod via PM or the report function instead of replying to that person.
    • Please don't use huge and/or animated sprites for your team speculation posts.
    • PLEASE AVOID HUGE WALLS OF TEXT! If your post is very big, please consider using spoiler tags or taking out sprites if you're using any.

    Please be considerate to fellow members. Thanks!

    Still feeling Litten and Rowlet as the first two captures, followed by Crabrawler, a water-type, and another wildcard.

    Pyumukumu is my #1 hyped pokemon that Ash most likely wont get.

    I wonder if Ash capture 5 pokemon to have a full team or will only have 4-5 during his tour in Alola.
    Pikachu, Rowlet, Litten and Pikipek think it would be good for at least the first 20 episodes. After he peude add a wildcard as some of the monkeys or maybe Crabrawler. I do not think you have a complete team because considering that there will be another 5 chaperones shall not think that writers can handle other 9-10 pokémon more.

    I'd say Litten is super likely based on the previews. I'm hoping for Pipipek assuming that don't end the Bird tradition in Gen 7

    Xenon Blue No Hard Feelings

    Ash: Pikachu / Pikipek -> Final Evo Form / Rowlet -> Dartix -> Decidueye (Ace) / Alolan Sandshrew ->Alolan Sandslash / Litten -> Torracat / Wimipod -> Evolution

    Kiwawe: Turtonator (Ace) / Alolan Marowak / Mudbray -> Mudsdale / Crabrawler / Some other Pokemon from other gen used against Ash in a 6v6

    Mallow: Bounsweet -> Steenee (Ace) / Fomantis / Cutiefly

    Lana: Popplio / Pyukumuku -> Evolution (Powerhose) / Sandygast

    Sophocles: Togedemaru / Alolan Grimer -> Alolan Muk (Powehouse) / I would put Porygon-Z here, but I can't. So I guess Kling -> Klang -> Klinklang

    Lillie: Alolan Vulpix

    Jessie: Wobbuffet / Grubbin -> Charjabug -> Vikavolt

    James: Mimikyu (comedic relief) / Bewear

    Wonder how many pokemon Ash will catch. There was a bunch of speculation over XY and he only ended up with five (and went home with three :p)

    Maybe this time only capture 4 + Pikachu also for the "empty" position can be occupied by Greninja ... No, I think that at this point do not think Ash get a full team and especially when there are other fives his fellow cons respective partners and others. Just imagine that you can get to a point where between 6 there may be up to 15 pokémon on screen I do not think they can handle either each.

    But the truth is that with the school theme does not really make much sense to capture many pokémon Ash if not going to use, so we know. If Ethan could not finish as in Yo-kai Watch where you can use almost all I-kai's but has almost no interactions with them outside the ghost and the cat that

    * Pikachu
    * Decidueye
    * Incineroar
    * Lycanroc --> (Regional powerhouse)
    * Pipikek final evolution
    * Crabrawler

    All I'm really thinking is Rowlet and Litten. Would love to see Midday Lycanroc on Ash's team as well, that Pokemon was practically made for him.

    Currently, I'm thinking:


    Litten>Torracat>(maybe) Incineroar
    Rockruff>Lycanroc (Midday)


    Mudbrey>Mudsdale (they said something about his family owning a farm, right?)


    (Maybe) Vanillite


    Some other fish Pokémon (probably Bruxish)




    Mimikyu (Jessie)

    For Ash possible captures two things are on my mind:
    1. Will the Grubbin he is chasing in the preview be caught by him?
    2. Are any Pokemon with exclusive Z-moves possible options for Ash?

    i mean pikachu has an exclusive z-move so he might use that later down the road

    I'm thinking Ash might be the only main character to own more than two Pokemon. I honestly can't think of more than two for some, not like we'll see all of them for 3 years anyways.

    Wimpod evolution
    Alolan Sandslash
    Maybe Passimian?

    Sea Spike Pokemon from TCG art, the Water/Poison looking one


    Alolan Vulpix

    Alolan Marowak

    Steenee (I just think it's cuter than Tsareena)

    Popplio (Oshawott/Chespin vibes)

    Alolan Raichu

    Recurring- Bewear

    Well in terms of Ash's team maybe this:

    Ash's Alola Team:
    Rockruff-->Lycanroc(Midday Form/Midnight Form)
    Grubbin-->Charjabug-->Vikavolt or Wimpod--> Wimpod's evolution or he winds up catching both.
    Alolan Sandshrew-->Alolan Sandslash

    some other options for him could also include Crabrawler and it's evolution, Salandit and it's evolution, Mudbray-->Mudsdale, Pyukumuku or even Minior.

    Here is my prediction:
    Pikipek> Evo1> evo2
    Litten> Torracat
    Crabrawler> evo
    *Rotomondex* because it could act as a team member for the convenience of the plot.

    The rest could be alone with pokémon that we see on the poster and perhaps an evolution. Maybe Mallow capture other Pokemon.

    Team Rocket guess Mimikyu and bewear / anchor pokémon be your options, plus Woobuffet.

    I doubt they would give Ash two fully evolved starters and make neither the powerhouse.

    I guess I shouldnt be surprised that Lycanroc has Lucario-syndrome.

    If anything I want him to get a new type. I doubt he will get all four remaining types here but one or two would be nice

    He should get Rowlet and fully evolve it into Decidueye. Then he'd get his very first Ghost Type, and the Pokemon seems to fit him rather well.
