The Future of the World Championships

I don’t smoke or drink, or do drugs! BAKA!
Considering the nonsense drivel of “I have this feeling that Ash is going to have his body quit on him/Serena was brutally killed by a thug/someone died/whatever crap you like to pull,” forgive us for considering intoxication as a possible reason for these stupid fanfics.

I don't know what the hell his infatuation of that stuff is all about, or why he has it. It's not like there's a shortage of violent and edgy darkfics out there!

There's is one thing that's bothering me coming out of today's episode...and it's not alain's loss.

@RafaSceptile @SerGoldenhandtheJust @Ignition.

that is Hop.

the fact he started crying when just 1 of his brothers pokemon went down...i've been thinking all day...as much as some want an "interuption"...you don't think he could be the one to do it do you?
I don’t think Hop would pull a Max. I think he’ll get closer/invested to Ash with his battles and Go hyping him up so by the time it’s Ash vs Leon, he’s genuinely rooting for both of them similar to how he feels in the games when it’s you vs Leon. Speaking of which, I have a feeling they’ll try to sneak a Rose or TRio scheme appearance before then.

While I think Ash will win the PWC, I’m afraid something bad will happen to him afterwards. Either someone seriously injured him or he finds out one of his friends was gruesomely murdered.
Sato, I like torturing my favorite characters, usually emotionally, as much as other fanfic writers but you must stop with these, "Ash is hurt/someone is brutally murdered." Ideas. The anime is targeted at little kids meaning that no one is going to be murdered brutally. At worst someone will die offscreen. Only the movies have had semi consistent deaths and, if memory serves, the most brutal was a tossup between a car crash where Coco's parents bodies weren't mangled and their final moments were offscreen and Luxray dying of frostbite which was shown as Luxray peacefully sleeping with a smile on its face.

At most, Ash will get hurt but not a serious injury. It'll be the age old twisted ankle and if it's ever anything worse than that the injuries won't be physically shown and a Pokemon will heal him/he'll be shown with a few bruises in the Pokemon Center.

Sorry. Guess this is what happens when you’ve watched every episode of the Danganronpa anime.

Mind if you demarcate your fanfics with actual tangible reality in the anime?

I wrote (and am still writing) a murder mystery based on the BTAS episode the Man Who Killed Batman called "Who Made Ash into Ashes?" where some c and d-list antagonists from the anime seemingly kill Ash and Pikachu in a fire. Ash does lose a leg in this story too. Though this bit was the prototype for the story where that's the main premise. The One Legged Master.

On SpaceBattles its an open secret who did it.

Actually, I'll admit several of my stories are "bad things happen to Ash and the world comes to his aid" because I just want some feels you know? None of that shipping/harem or power wank revenge fantasy crap just Ash's friends and family being there for him.

Legends Arceus is a masterpiece & SV will be too!

Not at all lol. His characterisation is perfectly in line with the games before his journey begins, so yea he'll be sad Leon loses at times but won't go crazy lol

Tournament gets interrupted in the finals by Giovanni making a surprise attack on the stadium.

Suddenly, a young adult appears out of a wormhole, riding on a weird purple yellow motorcycle dragon thing, and uses a Kartana to slice up Giovanni's and Team Rocket's current machine or mecha and forces them to flee.

Young man cordons Ash away from the others and warns of two super powerful Burst Warriors that ravage the future, and he's the only one left of Ash's group of friends in that future that's left to fight.

It's Lei. Cue next series.

No, too interesting.

I think the PWC will stick around if they continue promoting the mobile games alongside the core series games .

Goh = Pokémon Go
Ash and the PWC = Pokémon Masters EX

That’s my interpretation of things anyways

Gatinko time, baby.
They almost *have* to end it after Journeys. Yeah you could argue the gym formula stuck around for…5 sagas, but each of those had the excuse of the Gyms being in a separate region. With the PWC being global it’d be awfully contrived for them to suddenly go “but wait, *insert champion character from Gen 9 here* didn’t participate and they’re actually stronger than Leon! It’s not over yet, peeps!”.

I mean, you could portray them as a rising star. Sure, it’d likely still be at least a little contrived, but nothing really says a trainer who wasn’t worthy of top 8 last season can’t be now.
