    Well let's face it, SM has used up all its major plot lines, and now all that's left is LGPE promotion (which shouldn't last more than 2 months, so like 6-8 episodes), Poni Trials, and the league. So with around a year left of SM, simply having these as the major plot points to tie up for a whole year isn't enough imo, so I'm definitely expecting loads of fillers towards the end to tie up till the next gen. That's why, I think they'll introduce Guzma then, as a means of saving someone of some interest during that period.

    We're nearly 100 episodes in and way past Ula'ula Island. Where is ya boy Guzma? Not even any sign of Plumeria yet.

    Welcome to the anime. The game-based plots are so contained, forced and last-minute you'll never see it coming!

    Lol, this sounds like a post @AuraChannelerChris would type.

    Nah. I'd simply ask "Why is this happening this way? Why must they go so against a plot that could be shown really well in animated form with a few alterations instead of putting it all down the crapper and picking up the first thing that came out of said crapper?"

    To be honest, to answer the thread's topic a bit more, I have to wonder how they absolutely didn't bank on Guzma's popularity and left him for last.

    I figure that Plumeri would show up when Guzma does, if he even appears at all. But given what a joke the Skull-dan is in SM, I have a feeling Guzma might become a gag character.

    The fact that we're getting Misty & Brock twice before Guzma or Plumeria irks me

    It doesn't irk me at all, because I'll take this continuity compared to what we got in XY.

    Fair enough. I'd prefer more continuity past OS but we take what we'll get

    At this point they have no reason to appear without it seeming forced. At least Brock and Misty make sense due to LGPE. Heck I can see Leaf appearing in the anime before Guzma. Maybe as a female rival to defeat Ash for once.

    How would it be forced? He's the villain boss of this gen

    That could be debated but it would be weird because by now everything about him would just feel weird and forced. Aether is good now and the legendaries are dealt with. At this post the only way to bring him in would be to have him in the league which could be nice

    Or write something in with Team Rainbow Rocket

    I think they already did not necessarily Team Rainbow Rocket but Team Rocket's return in that Necrozma special. Honestly, I think the Pokemon League, Team Skull wrap-up and the Ultra Beasts Episode, which is done with the Ultra Guardians-themed episodes, are left. Come to think of it, how are we not talking about Anabel's possible return? She has much of a chance of appearing as Guzma.

    There's absolutely no way they would include her XD

    Why?

    That would require showing a character who visibly aged between appearances. I also don't think they would bring back such a minor character from a previous season like that. They may include a stand-in for her but seems a bit late now.

    Nope. That will never happen if they bring her back unless they do an alternate dimension scenario. You forgot one thing! This isn't the games. This isn't the Adventures manga. This is the anime lol. For example, remember how the anime gods granted the gift of Cheren becoming an adult in the same season as Bianca was still a kid? And let's not forget the anime gods has given Ash and his friends, and pretty much everyone else he meets, immortality. The anime gods don't pay that much attention to the little details so it shouldn't be a problem to put a fellow 10 or 11 year old in a police suit. And before you argue about the police suit, they have put kids in adult uniforms lol so it shouldn't be too surprising, but still awkward, to see Anabel looking like an agent at around Ash's size lol.

    That's literally what I'm saying...? Cheren appeared as an adult but he never appeared as his younger self. A character will only appear as one age in the anime to not break the immersion. I don't think bringing in a character that Ash would recognize with a drastically different appearance, even if they made her look younger, would be a thing the writers would do. Not to mention Anabel's last appearance was WELL over 10 years ago. The current viewership would probably just be confused.
