I'd love for James to catch Bewear, it would definitely suit him a lot. Mimikyu is kind of creeping me out at the moment but I think it adds a really interesting dynamic with its hatred of Pikachu and the weird relationship it has with Meowth.

    Aye. If he also gets Litten, I hope Litten gets a fire attack that isn't Flame Charge. I think we can all agree that it has been overused by Ash in 5th and 6th Gens.

    But yeah Rowlet can't learn many flying attacks other than Brave Bird, Pluck and Peck (I think) It can't even learn Arial Ace that is usually Ash's go to flying move, so yeah, I think he will treat Rowlet as Grass. Then maybe a bit more Ghost if it evolves.

    Even though he got Hawlucha, Noivern, and Talonflame last gen, I really want him to get Pikipek because the regional bird is so different from the other main regional birds. Although Toucannon has a crap move pool.

    I really want him to catch a damn Shiny as well. But I don't see that happening. I do really want him to use at least 1 or 2 different Poke Balls that aren't Normal, Ultra, or Great.


    They are showing Litten way too much for Ash not to catch it. It has had its own scene in all 4 episodes so far. So it seems like they are building up for possibly Litten being similar to Ash's Sandile/Krokorok.

    Also they showed Ash attempting to catch a Grubbin and it popped out, so he may not catch ti after all. As the scene that was shown was a fail.

    I remember something about Rowlet's line surprisingly not learning many Flying moves, so I do think Ash will focus on its Grass typing. And that means he will likely get Pikipek to serve as his usual regional bird.

      Currently this is what I am hoping for, for everyone. I don't want to go over 6 Pokemon for everyone other than maybe Ash. I also will not count Pika for Ash. This would also include where I would love for the stages to stay at.

      Note - I am not saying they should catch them all, just ones that I think would be nice for them to catch. Even if it is just 4 or 5 of them.

      Spoiler:
      Ash -
      Decidueye
      Incenaroar
      Alolan Sandshrew/Sandslash
      Crabominable (Would take on the water pokemon, as it learns a large amount of water attacks)
      Midday Lycanrock
      Toucannon
      Maybe Mudsdale
      Sensu Oricorio
      Alolan Raticate (Throwback to the first saga)
      Drampa
      Oranguru
      Kommo-o
      Braviary (Most unlikely, but my hope is still there for him to one day catch one)

      Mallow -
      Steenee (Maybe Evolve)
      Lurantis
      Ledian
      Whimsicott
      Morelull
      Komala
      Leafeon
      Alolan Grimmer or Trubbish (Something like food, but she could change them to smell good)

      Lana -
      Poliwrath
      Wishiwashi
      Primirina
      Pyukumuku
      Vaporeon
      Cloyster
      Toxapex (To show that Toxapex don't have to eat Corsola)
      Lumineon (Desperately needs some spot light and is a beautiful pokemon)

      Solphocles -
      Vikavolt
      Togademaru
      Electabuzz
      Pom-Pom Oricorio
      Delibird (Just something random.)
      Alolan Graveler
      Jolteon

      Kiawe -
      Turtanator
      Salazzle
      Passimian
      Magmar
      Alolan Marowak
      Flareon
      Minior

      Lillie - (I think she will catch a few even though she can't touch them. I think that will be part of her development.
      Espeon
      Alolan Ninetails
      Castform
      Alolan Persian
      Growlithe
      Herdier
      Lilligant

      His Rowlett is absolutely adorable. The animation is incredible so far. I especially loved when it started to doze in the nest and the Trumbeak yelled at it.

        Yea it's starting to look like grubbin is the new dunsparce with a running gag of how ash tried to capture it and something always goes wrong.

        I could see crawlbrawler going to ash but it not evolving and it'll serve as a fighting type with water moves cause I also don't see ash getting a water type.

        I feel Ash is overdue another Shiny. I wouldn't mind him getting an anime exclusive shiny (example: Pink butterfree, purple kecleon and Ash's lapras's mother).

        Also have a weird gut feeling Rowlet won't evolve

        That depends on if Decidueye is viewed as marketable in Japan, since marketability usually plays a part in if a main character's Pokemon evolves or not.

          If he only gets 1 or 2 starts, I can't see the reason they would not allow it to evolve. I think Decidueye is probably the most popular starter for the generation, but by the way it acts, I can see what you mean. But I don't see it not evolving unless he catches all 3 starters. Which, I am not seeing happen.

          I am not sure Turtwig/Torterra was very popular, yet he still evolved it, even though Paul also had one.

          I'm pretty sure Ash will have both Rowlet and Litten as his starters for this generation, while Lana has Popplio.

          Going by the concept art of Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina (aka the one they were first leaked on) I noticed Ash next to Incineroar while Rowlet was still a Rowlet. Maybe this indicates Rowlet will stay as it is while Ash has Litten evolve all the way.

          I can't picture Rowlet evolving.

          It feels like a mascot character, and what have you.

            After watching the episodes so far, I'd say Ash is going end up with these:

            Pikachu

            Decideueye ( I really don't think the Concept Art means much, and Decideueye is the most popular starter. Rowlett is popular to, but there's no downside to evolving it. Plus if he is going into the league, I'd rather he not have a Rowlett.)

            Inceneroar: Looks like this is obtainable in 3 weeks as Litten. Makes sense and it is also marketable, so evolving seems likely imo.

            Passimian: Avatar aside, this pokemon has the perfect setup for an Arc with Ash. I'd be pretty shocked if he didn't get it.

            Vikavolt: I'm shocked (pun intended) that there seems to be a lot of doubt on this. The opening has Ash catching Grubbin. Sure he failed in the show, but I'm betting it's the new Krokrok and not dunsparce. I also see it evolving fully, if not at least into chargabus.

            Dewpider or an Alolan Form: These last two are just random guesses. I think Ash will certainly get an Alolan form, but I could be wrong. Dewpider makes sense to, as I feel it fits Ash. Again though, I'm unsure so I am just guessing.

            I feel that Lana's Popplio will be the non-evolving starter this generation, being a "mascot" starter owned by a female lead that stays outside of its Poke Ball, similar to Dawn's Piplup.

              I don't think it will be Vikavolt. I know he failed to catch one, but I just don't see him catching it. From what I have seen on Serebii, Sophocles seems to be a little jealous of Ash getting attention or something based on Mallow's face. I think Sophocles will catch and get a Grubbin. That will be something he can say he did and Ash didn't. Not to mention he has one in the games.

              I originally thought Ash may get Passimian, but I think Crabrawler will be the better pokemon, but it not evolve till the end of the Saga or he will catch it much later. He hasn't had an Ice type since Hoenn and Fighting/Ice is a unique typining similar to Hawlucha. That is why I think it will be Crabrawler and not Passimian. Not to mention it is the only Ice type. Now if he gets Alolan Sandshrew, then it can change.

              I can also see Kiawe catching Passimian instead. They just seem to match to me.


              Rowlet does seem to be a cutesy pokemon, but it is hard to say if it will evolve. It has an adorable personality. I think it is too early right now. If he catches a Pikipek, then Rowlet will probably fully evolve.

              I might be the only one that thinks Bewear needs to drop off the face of the Earth. I can see James maybe getting Stufful, Morelull or even Komala. He usually gets a Grass type of some form expect Gen 6. It's really hard to tell who anyone will get.

                I have to agree, but the posters seemed to confirm that Team Rcoket would have Bewear. They got Mimikyu correct, so I think it is close to confirmed for that.

                It is possible that they might catch more than 1 pokemon this time around. They used to catch a total of 4 not including meowth and including Wobbuffet until Kalos.

                Bewear freaked me the heck out in the show. Almost as much as the dang Malamar in Kalos. And that scream... omg....

                  Pretty happy with this. I figured that there was a good chance of him getting Kukui's rockruff. So it seems likely that's the case, unless he gets a wild one next week. We'll see. Hoping he get midnight form

                  Yessss would like this so much, I think it would be a lot more of an interesting dynamic if he gets Midnight form compared to if he gets Midday form. I can see him struggling with Midnight form and slowly winning its trust and developing a strong bond with it, which would be really interesting and different to watch.

                    Yessss would like this so much, I think it would be a lot more of an interesting dynamic if he gets Midnight form compared to if he gets Midday form. I can see him struggling with Midnight form and slowly winning its trust and developing a strong bond with it, which would be really interesting and different to watch.

                    Most likely they will go with the more popular one and that is Midday from what I have seen. Honestly I don't want him to get Midnight. Especially if he eventually gets Litten or one of the evolutions like I think he will get. He hasn't had a Quadruped Pokemon since Torterra, unless you count Boldore. And I would like for him to get at least one quadruped pokemon again. I am personally not a huge fan of Midnight. Plus it looks a bit too evil for what Ash normally catches.

                    If he catches a Mudbray, then I can accept the Midnight form even if he gets Incenaroar.

                    Also it looked like Rockruff was looking up at the Midday Lycanroc, or at least it does in the pictures that Serebii posted, but Serebii's pictures tend to miss a lot of what actually happens.

                      Rockruff will become the 3rd form we found out was in the Global link with a placeholder image.

                        Le sigh. I don't want this.

                        Content related which might spoil, so in spoiler.

                        We just had an alternative form that no-one else was allowed to have (Greninja), sans Ash because; he's muh main character. I am content with Midday and Midnight.

                        However, if Twilight Lycanroc ever becomes a thing, they damn well better make it better than Midday and Midnight in the games

                          Yeah I know, which is why I could see it happen again. Ash Ninja became huge, so they may try to go two for two. It wouldn't need to be Ash exclusive though.

                          After all Hoenn, had some Shinnoh pokemon lurking around that were not exclusive to people and just lived in the wild. The anime acted like they already existed and weren't new. So this new form could be treated that way to.

                          With the excuse being that Rottom wasn't programmed with it yet, as it's still under investigation.

                          If that doesn't happen, then Midday is likely. Although I'd prefer midnight.

                            Since this pic shows what Ash's Alola team is, I guess this likely confirms he catches Litten in an upcoming episode. That means Alola will be Sinnoh 2.0 in a way where Ash catches both the Grass and Fire starters while a blue-haired female companion owns the Water starter.
