Good thing ash lost the kalos league because that will be punishment for releasing two pokemon that did not need to be released.

Anyway i expect one starter fully evolved and perhaps Rockruff too.
I think that piece of concept art that leaked Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina could hint to what direction Ash's Alola team may go, especially since Ash and Mallow were seen in one of the drawings on Incineroar's section of the artwork.

The drawing seems to suggest Rowlet will remain unevolved while Litten goes all the way to Incineroar. Unfortunately I have a problem with Litten fully evolving because Ash has already had two Fire-type starters as his regional ace (Charizard and Infernape) and adding a third one would just be overkill for me and unfair to those who wanted Rowlet to be the Alola ace.

Rockruff wasn't shown in that artwork, but I could definitely see it evolving. Out of which Lycanroc form I could see Rockruff becoming, as much as I love Midnight's design, Midday is probably the more fitting one for Ash.

As for if Ash should catch a Water-type in Alola, I am really feeling that it's unlikely. While he did become friends with a Wimpod in one episode, he didn't catch it, and most of the Water-types of the new Pokemon lineup are either unfitting for Ash (Pyukumuku) or were given to another main cast member instead (Popplio, Mareanie). I feel Dewpider is probably going to be the only suitable contender here, since I like its design and I'd also love to see Ash get a Bug-type once again.

    I rather see Rowlet fully evolved so ash can have a ghost type.

    I can agree, since I felt Ash not catching that shiny Phantump was a missed opportunity. But knowing me, the writers will be biased towards giving Ash another Fire-type ace.

      True but they did give him a Sceptile. Pignite never evolved so it never became that fully evolved fire starter ash has.

      Of course ash can fully evolved litten and rowlett. Similar to sinnoh.

      Ash did get both Torterra and Infernape in Sinnoh, but remember that Torterra was an absolute wimp in battle. Since it fully evolved, it was never able to beat anyone except Team Rocket.

        Problem was they put too much focus on Infernape. Torterra is a slow pokemon which fast pokemon can outspeed.

        But both Rowlet line and Litten line should have equal focus.

          DP had a lot of poorly done writing, so i'm not surprise why Torterra was treated like crap. It sure didn't make things anybetter by having Infernape become the main focus of the Sinnoh team.

          Maybe Ash will get a water type like Crabrawler or unless Lana let Ash have Poppilo. That's the only way he will have a water type.

            Crabrawler is Fighting. I got put off with ash owning waters after he released greninja.

              I guess we will have wait and see what kind of pokemon he will catch this time around. Maybe he will catch a Crabrawler for once.

                For once? Crabrawler only appeared in alola. It never showed up anywhere else.

                  I definetly see Ash still catching a Fighting Type Pokemon. I have to wonder though if he will catch Bewear instead of Team Rocket. Currently, I don't know if Bewear is helping Ash or Team Rocket. Passimian and Crabrawler are both good choices and they match Ash's personality. However, I would rather it be Crabrawler since he already has a fighting monkey and another fighting monkey that he has forgotten about.

                  I still think and hope Rowlet will evolve fully. I'd rather it not stay a Rowlet. Especially since it doesn't seem to stay in his bag anymore in the later episodes.

                  Litten and Rockruff will both almost definitely evolve. I think Rockruff will have a 3rd form though.

                  I am kinda hoping Ash catches Drampa right now. And I honestly really want him to catch an Alolan Form still, but I hope it is new ones from Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon that we may get.

                  I think it would be nice for him to miss out on a water type after Greninja, but I don't think that justifies someone staying he should always stay away from water pokemon from now on.

                    I hope ash stays away from alolan forms. They too close to kanto and we already have pikachu in the picture.

                      Crabrawler can always re-appeared again somewere else. It would make a really great catch for Ash to have on his Alola team.

                        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.

                                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.

                                        I think it's fair to say the writers treat Ash like muk when it comes to pseudo-legendaries. He was forced to release Goodra while Gible never evolved at all.

                                          Is there a possibility of Ash-Greninja returning at the end of Sun and Moon or Just before the league?
                                          We've seen Almost all the water types of alola so far and Ash hasn't catched it.
