Pikachu: Iron Tail, Thunderbolt, Electro Ball, Quick Attack
Decidueye: Leaf Blade, Brave Bird, Spirit Shackle, Razor Leaf
Incineroar: Darkest Lariat, Flare Blitz, Flamethrower, Cross Chop
Araquanid: Bubble Beam, Lunge, Ice Beam, Spider Web
Lycanroc: Accelerock, Crunch, Rock Climb, Stone Edge
Sandslash: Crush Claw, Gyro Ball, Blizzard, Iron Defense

Pikachu: Not much to say here maybe gets a new Z-Move like Catostropika.

Decidueye: I think Rowlet will evolve on Akala Island, it would evolve against Totem Lurantis and would win with a newly learned Brave Bird. As a Dartrix it would be fairly angsty and it's vain personality would kind of be like comic relief. After spending time with Ash it would eventually mellow out and evolve again on Poni Island to protect Ash from Alolan Exeggutor. It would be used in his battle against Hapu.

Incineroar: I think Ash will catch Litten before he leaves MeleMele Island, Litten would be Ash's go to Pokemon when it comes to battling for a while being used against Totem Lurantis with Rowlet. He would evolve into Torracat on UlaUla Island in Ash's battle against Nanu; and would evolve again into Incineroar in a conflict with the Aether Foundation at Aether Paradise. While having an aggressive nature Incineroar would be Ash's strongest Pokemon in Alola and one that he would develop a strong bond with.

Lycanroc: Rockruff would be used against Totem Salazzle along with Dewpider to help Ash secure the win before being used later on against Olivia on Akala Island. Rockruff would be Ash's last Pokemon standing against Olivia's Midnight Lycanroc in a pinch and would evolve during their battle. After a close fight Ash's Lycanroc would win and would later learn the Z-Move Continental Crush, upon evolving it would become a bit wild but still retain its loyalty and playful nature towards Ash.

Araquanid: I think Ash will catch Dewpider before challenging Totem Wishiwashi, it would be a clumsy Pokemon and have a tendency to cling to Ash's head catching him in its water bubble similar to James's Mareanie. It's clumsy nature would lead to a lot of its attacks missing but it would later evolve into Araquanid on Akala Island in a battle against Team Rocket. It's personality would remain the same after evolving as it would still tackle Ash in an attempt to put him in its bubble.

Passimian: Ash would capture Passimian after observing a whole team of them in the Lush Jungle. One Passimian in particular would take a interest in the way that Ash throws his Pokeball and the relationship that his team has with one another. After following Ash around for a bit it would challenge him to a battle where it would be defeated by Pikachu. Much like Heracross and Hawucha before it Passimian would be a capable battler pulling off impressive wins.

Sandslash: I think Sandshrew will be the last Pokemon Ash catches in Alola and his first steel type Pokemon. It would be captured on UlaUla Island and have a shy personality curling up into a ball whenever it is approached by someone. The only Pokemon it would open up to is Lillie's Vulpix because they are both ice types but it would eventually open up to the other Pokemon as well. Upon being captured Sandshrew would be rotated out with Passimian.

Although passimian suites ash more, but if ash catches an oranguru instead of a passimian, it can give ash a new type that he hasn't owned before.

So yesterday I said that Rockruff was supporting Midday Lycanroc in the battle against Midnight Lycanroc in yesterdays episode, after watching the sub today, Rotomdex showed a picture of Midday Lycanroc whilst battling, and said about its eyes, Kukui asked if it wanted to be like that, Rockruff then got excited, so foreshadowing it evolving into Midday form, which is why I'm certain it'll become Midnight form. I really want to see it evolve into Midnight form and the aggression and anger that comes from Midnight's personality, is down to the fact that it evolved into the wrong form.

And i think rockruff will evolve quite early in the series. It was mentioned many times in the episode that rockruff is may be close to getting evolved.

I actually don't want to evolve quickly, I love Rockruff, its right up there as one of my favourite anime pokemon, so I'm hoping its around for a while (Plus its extremely promotable), but yes, it being near evolution was hinted at, however I think we'll see it become more aggressive over time, it playing with the substitute doll was very brief, I think we'll see it become more aggressive over time, small spurts of aggression from time to time, but this will increase until we get to a point where it when its comes out of the pokeball, its just completely aggressive.

IIRC, the idea of Rockruff being close to evolving was only mentioned once--and it was a suggestion by Sophocles. That might have been foreshadowing, but that also might have been just a segue into Rotomdex's explanation on the two forms of Lycanroc. Granted, I believe that explanation did include a mention that Rockruff becomes more aggressive and independent when it's close to evolving, but that could have just been part of the explanation.

I'm not saying that Rockruff won't evolve early in the series; I'm just saying there is no definite confirmation that it will.

I think Rockruff will evolve later, because they need character development and also because of merchandising.

He has returned.
midday is definitely the faster of the two which is what Ash's style tends to favor, not to mention it gets access to Accelrock, which I believe nothing else can learn.

I agree, Midday Lycanroc is faster than Midnight and Accelrock is Midday's signature move. Midday seems to be more popular than Midnight.

ooo hopefully not Grubbin, but I'd love if Ash caught a Cutiefly! Team rocket could too, and it'd be interesting to see an evil cutiefly lol or the cutiefly interact with Mareanie.

I personally can't see Ash catching a Cutiefly however since it looks so harmless and cute. At least if someone like James catches one, it would seem slightly more fitting to me since James has had a few benign Pokemon before like Chimecho and Mime Jr before. :]

Cutiefly suits Mallow or Lillie honestly. I just can't see that as an option for Ash so long as Wimpod is on the table.
Can't see it with James either.

You know in regards to the move set Ash's Rockruff would have when it evolves into Lycanroc, I think it's move set will depend partly on which form of Lycanroc it evolves into, so here is the move sets that I think the forms could have:

Lycanrock Midday form:
Accelerock
Crunch
Rock Climb
Stone Edge

now with Midday form here I pretty much agree that if Rockruff evolves into Midday form Lycanroc the move set above would probably wind up being it's move set, and now on to the more trickery one to figure out the move set for.

Lycanroc Midnight form:
Counter
Reversal
Bulk up/Howl
Stone Edge/Rock Tomb/Rock Slide

Now with this form I'm not entirely sure on it's move set although given the forms fighting style I doubt that it would rely on speed since that's not really what this form is known for and also unlike Midday form I don't think Midnight form has enough speed to really pull off a Rock Climb without it being countered most of the time.

I want Rockruff to evolve a bit later on, I just want it to have some good development as Rockruff before it evolves into Lysanroc. And I really hope it evolves into Midday Lysanroc.

Pretty nice estimate of Midday Lysanroc's moveset this. I really hope it gets this moveset.

I don't see Cutiefly as an option for Ash full stop. So not "him".
