What do you think is going to happen in the last episodes(post-league)?

Aye, there's the rub. It depends on how many episodes SM has.

The sagas have been getting a little shorter each time, but that could change with the move to Sundays. It also depends on how many episodes they intend to make and what they want to do in the time they have left.

Another variable is airing two episodes at once as a special like they've done recently.

Only time will tell...
We already know when Sword and Shield will come out. SM will be over that week or the week before.

You guys think saving Mohn will just take one episode. No way. Especially if they tie him in somehow with Ultra Necrozma. You can at least dedicate a whole mini arc with that subplot

I don't think the Mohn subplot needs an entire mini-arc to be resolved though, nor do I think that we need to see Ultra Necrozma again. As far as I'm concerned, the time to promote US/UM has long since passed and I don't really see the need for the writers to go back and promote a Gen VII Legendary Pokemon that we've already seen in a previous mini-arc.

Someone in another thread mentioned the idea of a Pokemon Masters mini-arc after the Alola league to promote that new mobile game and I think that might actually work if done right.

Merchandise implies we haven't seen the last of Necrozma. If Mohn is lost somewhere in Ultra space they could cross paths again

I'm trying to visualize what that would be like, but I can't imagine that many characters from that game showing up at the end of SM, aside from maybe just silent cameos.

I don't think that's happening unless Sword & Shield get delayed into 2020.

The only way I can see that happening is if Ash wins the league and beats the Masked Royal in the exhibition match.

True but what if mask royal ( kukui ) also has a gen 8 mon ( unlikley ) to showcase galar mon

I have been saying the same for a while, that Ash and Torracat will defeat Incineroar and loose to Kukui's new pokemon that is either a Dawn Lycanroc or a Galar mon.

Sword and Shield aren't gonna get delayed. It's not like the games are the only aspect of the franchise.

The fact they are actually having a 'reality ensues' and letting the main cast realistically fail in the league from inexperience leaves me to believe some sort of vindication arc may happen afterwards, much in the same way Ash's loss in Kalos League was balanced by the Team Flare arc straight afterward in XY. SM loves it's vindication moments, cases a character makes a fool of themselves but still proves their worth afterwards and I feel like they won't want them getting thrashed in the league to be their final hurrah.

It's simply too late for that, considering how many episodes are left in the saga.

Pretty sure they'll have plenty of time for vindication while rescuing Mohn.

While I wouldn't be against this in theory, I'd be a little vexed if Kukui-hakase had some super secret Pokemon that would be even stronger than Gaogaen. It reminds me of how Takuto just so happened to have a Latios as back-up for his Darkrai. I guess this scenario would at least showcase a Gen VIII species, but it would still feel a little cheap to me.

What I would like to see post-League (if it doesn't happen during) is: -
Rowlet Evo
Torracat Evo
Poipole/ Neganadel return

Is this too much to ask?
Probably...
the only team changes I can see happening are meltan evolving, magearna getting caught, snowy evolving, and maybe meltan/melmetal getting released

I do hope they let Mallow have a full episode with Shaymin, if they aren't letting her keep it(Be really stupid if they don't have Shaymin choose to stay honestly... if Lillie can own Magearna, why can't Mallow own a Shaymin? They're pretty much the same thing! Barely even been enough focus on it...)
