The Power of Z!
Does anyone think it'll evolve similar to the games where it leaves and comes back evolved, defeating either Team Rocket or the enemy pokemon if the day? Or do you think they will have Ash find it and then it evolves in order to save Ash?
I've been predicting for awhile that Rockruff would evolve in a manner similar to the games, where it leaves overnight and comes back evolved. I predict it will happen one evening after Ash and Rockruff had an argument (perhaps by that point, Rockruff has started to become rebellious). Ash spends most of the night searching in vain for Rockruff, and is completely distraught over it. The next morning, Ash and his friends are attacked, and a Lycanroc pops out of nowhere to knock away the attackers, and Ash realizes his Rockruff evolved.
