Sater has a point. If Ash is catching Litten, it looks like Litten would be the more likely one to evolve, unfortunately leaving Rowlet to suffer the same fate as Oshawott, Piplup and Chespin which is being the comedy relief who is banned from evolving.

    But that point is countered by the point that Decidueye is also one of the most popular pokemon in Sun and Moon. I don't see them not evolving Rowlet. There has been times where popular pokemon have evolved even when their final stages aren't as popular. I think Turtwig was one of them. He is also getting his team early on, giving them time to progress similar to Sinnoh. However, I do understand where yall are coming from. If Decidueye wasn't so popular, I could see Rowlet not evolving easily.


    Based on what I am seeing, they are giving Ash nothing, but fan favorites at the moment. Based on pokemon we know are popular, his next pokemon, if Sophocles doesn't catch is, will probably be Vikavolt.

    Right now, if all pokemon evolve, he has a Grass, Electric, Fire, Rock, Dark, Ghost, and Flying, although he will lose the flying if Rowlet evolves. So pokemon he could possibly catch going on popularity alone are these.

    Vikavolt (Not likely since it is Electric type)
    Mudsdale (HIghly possible)
    Wishiwashi (Would better match Lana I think)
    Golisopod (Not likely since that is Guzma's Signature Pokemon)
    Drampa (A good match to match Kiawe's Turtanator and was popular and think it would match Ash)

    Other pokemon he could get are Passimian and Crabrawler. He usually catches a fighting type and both match Ash well going by the description of the pokemon on the main site.

    We also need to remember that we might be getting more Alolan Pokemon in Pokemon Stars and even possibly new pokemon. I don't think Ash will catch any more pokemon for a while. And the 20 new pokemon in Stars is just a rumor and a possibility. With this being a gag like saga, I can see Ash catching a lot of pokemon. I am still hoping he catches an Alolan form.

    I have also picked up on Ash's Alola team mostly being fan-faves, well especially Rowlet and Rockruff. I could definitely see Rockruff evolving but if the writers do evolve Rowlet, I would love to see it struggle with its larger size and has to learn that it won't fit in Ash's bag ever again.

    I do hope Ash's companions do catch more Pokemon, since I feel it's wrong for an Ash companion to go through their whole run with only one Pokemon.

        I wasn't expecting one of those, but it does make sense and matches Gladion's Personality.

        Spoiler:
        I knew as soon as I read the title name and description on Serebii that this would be the case. This means Ash will probably end up getting Day Time Lycanroc or that 3rd version Lycanroc. However, the Umbreon was a bit surprising. Especially when Gary has one, but it does match him.

        Speaking of Gladion, I don't think we even tried to guess his team. This seems to indicate that he will have dark type pokemon or evil looking pokemon though.

        Looks like I will be right with my prediction of Ash's Rockruff evolving into Midday Form Lycanroc. It's clearly the more popular Lycanroc form, so it makes sense the writers hand it over to Ash.

        It's also the Lycanroc that's more Ash's style. I can't see him having a nighttime Lycanroc at all tbh.

        Especially because Midday Form is the more "natural" evolution. I can really only see Midnight Form as something associated with the bad guys.

        Gladion not having Type: Null is weird but I guess since it's a more special Pokemon, it gets it own spotlight? Maybe Gladion captures it in an episode in the future on-screen?

        Well, to be fair, special Pokemon seem to be treated on a similar level to legendaries. So maybe we'll see Type: Null and Silvally appear, just not owned by Gladion. My guess is they'll be reserved for a movie, and probably the Ultra Beasts as well.

        Either it will be reserved for a movie or he will obtain it some other way depending on his development.

          It may be possible that he already has it, but doesn't use it. I am sure they wouldn't deprive Gladion of his signature pokemon. They usually don't in most cases. If I remember correctly, he had a rough time bonding with Null in the game, but continued to use it. It wasn't until he met Hau and our character that he was starting to be a bit more confident in using it. In this case, Ash would be that character.

          It is possible that he fears that Null would be out of control, so he doesn't use it right now.

          It would definitely not make sense since the Tapus are not exactly legendaries, but will likely get the same treatment as legendaries. Tapu Koko needs to guard Melemele, not let this trainer it recognized catch it.

            The series would practically become unwatchable if that happens IMO.

            He isn't going to catch Tapu Koko. Not only is it basically a Legendary, but it also an Electric type. If he didn't catch Meloetta in Unova, he isn't going to catch Tapu Koko. I am calling the Tapus legends because they are similar to birds and they are unique and at the end of the Dex. And they are based on Tiki Gods, so to me, they are legendary pokemon.

            Now he might team up with Tapu Koko at a later time against the Ultra Beasts, similar to how they handled the Lake Trio, but it is extremely unlikely he will catch Koko.

            All the time in the anime, Ash either Teams up with legends or becomes friends with them, but he never catches them. Meloetta being the big one at the moment. We know Ash can command Latias, Latios, and Rayquaza and ride on Lugia. Even though they are movies, it shows the relationship between Ash and the Legends.

                Do you mean it appears once in one area of alola and reappear in the next? Possible but i hope they don't because we already had litten give ash the run around.

                  Crabrawler can always appear again in the next area of Alola, and hopefully Ash may capture it.

                    If ash is getting a brand new type then ghost would be it since he has a rowlet that can go into Decidueye.

                      Ash's final Pokemon will be Solgaleo and Lunaala.

                      You heard it here first! :)

                        Not happening. Ash never gets a legendary and will never be strong enough to get one.

                          Why?

                          Solgaleo and Lunaala are the first legendary Pokemon with evolutionary lines. Ash gets 2 Cosmog's and evolves them to stop Team Skull or something

                          I'm getting reminded of how much people want Ash to catch Tapu Koko. Nope, it's still a legendary and they are forbidden.

                            Solgaleo and Lunaala are the first legendary Pokemon with evolutionary lines. Ash gets 2 Cosmog's and evolves them to stop Team Skull or something
                            If ash didn't get a legendary the last 6 generations then hevis not getting one now. Doesn't matter if cosmog line is an evolution line. No one will own. It may be hold onto by lillie but it will never be official owned by ash or anyone.

                              Why should legendaries be forbidden though? Because they're legendary?

                              There are many main Pokemon heroes in the manga or anime with legendary Pokemon.

                                Ash is not those characters. He didn't even even bother catching every single pokemon like he said he would. Getting a legendary is out of the question.

                                The closest he can get is a pseudo legendary but he either releases it like goodra or don't fully evolve it like gible.
