Sun & Moon Pokémon Speculation Thread

    Meltan probably has Harden and Thunder Shock as it’s other two moves. Maybe Thunder Wave. I’d wager when it potentially evolves it could get Double Iron Bash and Thunder Punch. Also this was probably confirmed the other day, but it’s a cute detail that Meltan stays in the bag with Rowlet. Also they played Poipole’s opening song in the recent episode.

    I'm still slightly irked by the fact that Mao and Lilie are both caring for Mythical Pokemon, but at least they don't officially own them. Satoshi having Meltan is somewhat excusable since he's at least more experienced than his companions.

    I'm kinda liking Shaymin now due to the recent episode, since they're bothering to show an actual bond between it and Mallow. It doesn't really seem that prestigious in treatment right now either. If I didn't know about the games' hierarchies, I'd have thought Shaymin was just a typical timid Pokemon that knows a signature useful move.

    Can we at least see Mallow in one proper team battle that isn't TR now though? Don't let Aromatherapy go to waste.

    And he hasn't even gotten to do anything with Fire Blast yet... quite irritating! At least not many battles happened between Rowlet learning Razor Leaf and his battle with Hau, there have been plenty of opportunites that Torracat could have fought but they give it to Pokemon that have had more than enough focus...

    I just wanna see him fight somebody not named Kukui -.-

    At least they're small cute legendary Pokemon and not bigger ones, Shaymin fits in quite nicely with Mallow.
    If it was something like a Latios/Latias it'd just feel like a way to give them a free power up without working for it. Kiawe's really the only current companion who could get a bigger legendary without feeling forced as it's established he's strong already. Getting a strong Pokemon wouldn't feel like a last minute power-up, though I'd still prefer he got Heatran over something like Moltres or Entei

    The series is being oddly roundabout concerning many Pokemon getting to battle. We see several of them getting established boosts and changeups, but then....not getting a proper battle to really test it out. At best they'll face TR or some bad guy that's practically a standing target, but the trainers won't really get to enhance their actual strategy and battle style. Establishing abilities is cool, especially with a downplayed use of 'power of really wanting it' DEM moments as of recently, but you seriously can't have all these guys go into the league without proper battle experience.

    I mean Meltan's been here the least time out of everyone and it seems it will already get one proper official battle plus at least a couple of TR's more 'not so harmless' ones. Almost no one besides Kiawe's team has even reached that in what is over 100 episodes for some.

    After this last episode, I could really see Shaymin staying with Mallow. They've clearly bonded a lot and it seems to care for Mallow. I think we need to get rid of this stigma about legendary pokemon tbh. There's a difference between a Shaymin and something like Dialga. I see no reason why Shaymin can't be captured, especially since it isn't portrayed as some super strong pokemon.

    Shaymin's first episode makes it clear that it is a temporary Pokemon.

    I'm really hoping they go that way. Shaymin fits the cast a lot more than a freaking Magearna does...

    Doesn't mean it can't change.

    Well then the writers seem to want to make us and Mallow care about a temporary pokemon more then we need to. Especially because they didn't really give a great reason for it leaving. Needs to fly away sometime isn't exactly a reason that can't change.

    I wouldn't mind Mallow getting to keep Shaymin, especially since it has the very practical Aromatherapy that could give her a distinct use in group action scenes. Also within just one episode Shaymin has gone from a bland prop to having far more personality and chemistries than Tsareena gained in over 100 episodes, and its 'weak but practical' stance fits a non-battler like Mallow more than the latter, who just matured into a powerhouse with little to no contribution from her trainer at all.

    Unless its Sky Forme is shoehorned in as well and suddenly turns out to be incredibly OP, I wouldn't mind Mallow having this one, at least she bothered to form a bond with it first.

    Well seeing as how we likely won't ever see Mao again once SM is concluded, I wouldn't mind too much if she keeps Shaymin. I'm simply puzzled by the fact that the writers waited so long to give her a second Pokemon to look after.

    Mallow letting Shaymin go as it goes into it's sky forme will probably be similar to Misty releasing Togetic. We'll see Shaymin fly into the sky.

    Things can always change. We at least know Shaymin likes Mallow and the group to the point where it was willing to run after Mallow’s accessory, prevented Nagisa from getting injured and healing it with Aromatherapy later on. Plus Shaymin could be like Noland. He befriended that articuno and it kept visiting to hang

    Reason it doesn't matter is because by the end of SM Mallow won't be around next series anyway, so whether it stays with her or leaves doesn't make a difference as we might never see her again, beyond the SM cast getting a special or whatever.

    More or less, if Mallow's in the League, Shaymin is staying for that much at worst... if she isn't gonna participate, well, then yeah Shaymin could leave as early as next episode (it won't be next episode obviously)

    Tbh I am impressed that the anime staff didnt take a break this year yet (besides new year). Is Sunday a good day to broadcast pokemon?

    Sunday could have been a good day to broadcast Pokemon, anytime on Sunday could have really benefitted Pokemon...

    ...except for the timeslot that they moved Pokemon to, which has done nothing but made it so that children are less likely to watch the show.

    Weren't those breaks mostly to make up for Pokemon having so many double episode weeks? They haven't had one in those in quite some time either

    What can the special announcement in SM118 be about?

    Not much. I don't think that it will be a game announcement.
