So now that we have a new generation and we know why the BW saga has been flowing fast as it has what do you think will occur.

- Will Ash take some of his pokemon over, as it seems a lot of older pokemon are represented. Or at least shift them throughout XY Saga?


- Will either Iris or Cilan follow Ash to the new region? Or will he have completely new companions?

- Out of the starters, which do you personally prefer Ash to have or do you wish for him to have more then one?

My thoughts:

-> Ash will become an ultra noob once more. His battle skills will plummet and Pikachu will return to a level 1 Pokemon.

->I can see him having Froakie accompany him on his XY journey. Chespin is a possibility too. While Fennekin, not so much.

->Ash will either get completely new companions or Brock will return.

I think Cilan and Iris will stay in Unova (if the new region is far)

And I prefer when Ash have in his possesion all of the region's starter, I don't know why, but it makes it more fun. I do hope they get to evolve this time >.>

I hope that some of his older Pokemon come back tho, I miss them little buggers

I can see Gible coming back and that's about all.
Satoshi will once again travel alone with Pikachu who will be utmost rarity in the new region, Iris becomes Isshu's Champion, Dent returns to being gym leader and Satoshi's pokémon will stay with Oak.

Didn't they say Cilan and Iris will be with Ash through 2 regions, or journeys?

Anyway no more Ash. Not gonna happen though.

- It will depend if any of the Pokemon Ash caught will be given new evolutions in XY, like how they let him kept Aipom for the beginning of his Sinnoh journey, because Ambipom was created.

- There are two possibilities if Cilan and/or Iris do not return: 1) Dawn will return and will wear an outfit similar to the Gen VI female's, or 2) They'll use the Gen VI female with the personality of Rarity from MLP.

- Probably Chespin, since Ash's battle style is all about speed and brute force, and Chespin's based off of a hedgehog, which was popularized by a certain video game icon.

Me:

-> Pikachu will lose to a Fennekin, which is held by a Rival who disagrees with ash in every way.
-> Team Rocket will possibly not make a return.
-> Cilan is probably the mega replacement for brock. If I had a penny for everytime Cilan stated the obvious
-> Probably a new Female companion, I don't see why Iris or Dawn need this new region.

It's a possibility, but if he does, then it will likely be a Pokémon that has a new evolution in X and Y a la Aipom coming to Sinnoh and later evolving into Ambipom. However, if this happens, I pray he doesn't trade it away. Poor Ambipom got traded and then later left the gang to play ping-pong. What?

- Will either Iris or Cilan follow Ash to the new region? Or will he have completely new companions?
Cilan has a better chance of sticking around for the next region more so than Iris does. Since this new region is based off of Paris, I think Cilan could fit in perfectly. Although, I'm hoping we get completely new companions. This time, however, it should be a boy trainer starting his journey for the first time and accompanying Ash instead of a girl. Then a Brock/Cilan replacement can come in in the form of a female character. Or, or, or wouldn't it be something if Misty returned and she had a Froakie with her and decided to rejoin Ash again? Eh, eh?

Haha, just kidding. That's probably never going to happen.

- Out of the starters, which do you personally prefer Ash to have or do you wish for him to have more then one?
Let's not give Ash a Froakie, yeah? Poor thing might be forever cursed from evolving unless his evolutions become a massive hit with the fanbase. I can definitely see Ash getting a Chespin. Fennekin doesn't seem to fit with Ash though.

I hope we get another rehash of the Hoenn saga where each starter is given to one of the main trio members. Perhaps the new male can have a Fennekin as his starter and go off to liking Pokémon Contests.

What, a guy can dream, can't he?

No, but seriously, when Ash is given just one starter (or two for the most), it allows his team to be more diverse with some of the other new Pokémon like how it was done in Hoenn and Sinnoh.

1. Ash is going to start fresh with pikachu losing all his power again only person I could see travel with him is gible even though I see gible returning for the plama arc just so they could evolve him
2. Cilan will stay for the nxt gen just for the fact he has the misty situation that he doesn't really need to return to the gym because his brothers are running it. Iris will be replaced with a new female protagonist for sure
3.as for the starters I think it all depends on popularity of the starters evols but I do see them do it like hoen where the companions all had one starter because if ash gets froakie or fennikan they will never evolve

Ash will probably start fresh with Pikachu again, but I would see Ash bringing an older Pokemon along if it gets a new evolution in the games, but I don't want it to have the same fate as Ambipom in Sinnoh.

- Will either Iris or Cilan follow Ash to the new region? Or will he have completely new companions?
More likely Cilan than Iris, given that Cilan's brothers are running the Striaton Gym. Iris would probably become Unova Champion and get replaced by a new girl, as has always happened with past sagas.

- Out of the starters, which do you personally prefer Ash to have or do you wish for him to have more then one?
Probably Chespin, since he always catches Grass-type starters and I think it suits him. Froakie could also probably be a good candidate to become his first Water-type starter to evolve if his evolutions are popular with the fanbase. Fennekin would be better suited for the new girl though. Splitting the starters between the 3 trainers like in Hoenn would also be a possibility.

I think Ash will get Chespin considering how he's gotten all the Grass starters of every region thus far.

I'm hoping Ash get's new companions again, not that I don't Iris and Cilian, actually I like them better than Ash. I just think it'll be better if we got new characters they could flesh out a bit.

I can see Ash taking maybe one or two other pokemon if they're in the XY regional dex.

Though what I'm wondering right now is what is the new season going to be called...We had Advance after the system of the Hoenn games and Kanto remakes, DP from the IV games, and Best Wishes' initials are BW. I can't think of it being called 3D...unless 3D stands for something..., they could do XY while though but if they were to make a song with the titles it'll be kind of funny to hear them shout X and Y. And there's not many words that start with X in the english language while in the Japanese language it technically doesn't exist...

I had been hearing that Ash will not be coming back in the XY season. Apparently some fans got sick of Ash Ketchum and they want a new protagonist.

I suppose those Ash-haters are going to rejoice at this idea and await a new protagonist with an entirely different character from Ash.

Maybe he might return to the anime as an adult or something? As a Gym Leader or Elite Four.

90% of the older Pokemon fan base seems to be sick of Ash. But I highly doubt that they will be making a new protagonist.

Out of the starters I feel Chespin would suit Ash best. Froakie might be another one but Fennekin doesn't suit him. That and I feel that if he got a Fennekin it won't evolve. But I do like the idea of him only getting one of the starters this time around. More diversity is always good to see.

Depending on how many past Pokemon and what Pokemon they are he might bring an older Pokemon along with him as he did Aipom. But only if he had that Pokemon before. Otherwise they might just give the evolution later on, such as Ash catching Gligar and evolving it to Gliscor, Dawn getting Swinub and evolving it to Ambipom and so forth.

What I would like to happen is the pacing actually be good. Not ridiculously slow like Sinnoh (though it did allow his Pokemon to develop), or mixed up like Unova (in which his Pokemon didn't get much development in terms of evolution). They just really need to find equal ground between pacing and development.

And ... while I don't completely agree that he went back down to square one I would like it so it doesn't seem like he does. He made some pretty stupid mistakes in Unova which makes it hard to believe he didn't reset but at the same time he didn't reset. It's just ... hard .

Iris most likely won't if past seasons are to go by, They always seem to get rid of the girls.
I'm hoping Cilan will not as I really don't like him as a character.
Either way both will probably return for atleast one episode.

I suppose he will get Chespin, Cilan will come back in this new region, and I believe at least one old Pokémon will go with Ash to evolve, like Aipom in Sinnoh.
But I'm sick of him, really, I wonder what they'll do to keep the anime fresh.

I wouldn't mind if Misty and Brock came back, however that is very unlikely, but then again...
Spoiler:
Brock and Misty are coming back in BW116, unknown if it is through flashback or actual appearance though.

From what I've noticed, even-gen sagas tend to have slow paces in the anime, where there's mostly filler, so expect X and Y to do the same thing.

Yeah, I sort of noticed this trend. Sinnoh and Johto had loads and loads of filler whereas Kanto and Hoenn lacked a lot of filler, and ended quickly meaning they had a special saga follow it. Hoenn did have decent pacing though.

Unova will probably end up finishing early and then have a filler saga like the last two odd-numbered generations did before heading into the X & Y saga.

I could see Ash starting of with a Chespin b/c Fennekin doesn't look too Ashy(-boy haha) and Froakie. Just no. Please don't.

And since there MAY BE a Heracross evolution/prevolution...I could see that. Also Gible NEEDS to evolve.

Ash'll probably get all 3 starters like last/this time...I'd want him to make Chespin fully evo. Fennekin evo. once and Froakie not evolve...idk why but I just HATE Froakie XD

Ash will most likely get Chespin and his rival will get Fennekin most likely.

Might as well, right?

Will Ash take some of his pokemon over, as it seems a lot of older pokemon are represented. Or at least shift them throughout XY Saga?

Probably not. He'll just take his Pikachu with him as usual. I know him by now to know that he's going to ditch all his others at the lab.

Will either Iris or Cilan follow Ash to the new region? Or will he have completely new companions?

None of them will travel with him at all because they'll all separate and we'll get two new travel companions. Watch. It's going to happen.

Out of the starters, which do you personally prefer Ash to have or do you wish for him to have more then one?

Froakie. It would suit him and I'd like to see him with Chespin to keep with the grass starter tradition.
