The Future of the World Championships

Can't wait to see how they massacre Marnie Hau style.

Shows up one episode.

Remains completely absent until league time.

Could see that Ash vs Piers be sort of an interlude to Ash vs Marnie. Like she doesn’t seem impressed by Piers or Ash and that after the battle Marnie will be „inspired“ again to compete in the PWC or battle Ash.

Really happy they are introducing her in the anime, found her to be great in the games, just needed a more level upped team. Make her bit more competitive.

Ash though hasn‘t many pokes he can use against Dark Types. So hoping he either gets a new mon or uses an old mon.

i would assume the latter because i'm having a hard time seeing her in the masters 8 out of no where, and she definitely doesn't match any of the 5 silouettes from when we were told of the hyper class either.

Lucario and Sirfetch'd say hi.

Reminder that Ash had all but one of his Alola Pokémon weak to Ground yet chose to take on Hapu with a Pokémon whose Type Ground is immune to. He also took on Candice with 3/4 Pokémon being weak to Ice. They’d let Ash sweep Piers with Gengar if they truly wanted to

Also, reminder that her battlefield was literally surrounded by water.

It's like putting Misty next to dozens of power generators when most of your team is weak to water.

Considering the latest spoilers from Pokémon Masters... (note that I don't really know how the games work but I know that Cynthia's Masters appearance has been referenced)
Brock and Misty are (can be?) champions of Pasio. I wonder if they could find themselves as future opponents. I imagine one or both will come back to play a role supporting Ash when he gets close to the Masters 8.

Side note: how good would a 6v6 be between Ash and a former companion?

The anime doesn't remotely do anything as big as mentioning Pasio, so this is never going to happen. It's just bad storytelling; even worse than Iris becoming Champion with almost no buildup or even mentioning Alder once.

Its taking way too long to reveal the next opponent.
I just want to see the meltdowns if Lillie turns out to be one of Ash's next opponents

After Marnie's PWC battle I theorizing Ash's next two PWC will take place in Hoenn and Alola (not in that order).
