    I say Gary could come in Dekorora arc. If he rerally is coming there i bet Cilan will try to battle him even before Ash had a chance. ( He will have his old Electivire with him. I am sure of it)

      Uweh? What reason would Cilan have for battling him though? Unless it was going to play out like Pallet vs CaféMocha but wow I highly doubt that.

      I bet he liked Purrloin or used to play with one when he was young and then something went wrong.

        Ahh maybe he was playing with it when he was really little and something scared it so it flipped out and attacked him because cats totally do that sometimes. And now he understands that, but it doesn't make him any less scared of it happening again?

            Oh that don't mean a thing. Gary would battle Ash first and foremost, because he's Gary. He don't care about whoever Ash is travelling with, he's focused on his childhood friend and rival.

              But But Oh well. Let's forget it and focus on any thing new. Any thing new to discuss. Speaking of which I have a hunch the anime is going to introduce another character in Dekorora arc who will be Ash's sort of Rival

                Really? idk man it seems to me they're focusing on the main trio having adventures all across the archipelago. I don't think there's enough time for another rival in between all the self-contained stories. And what would they be rivals for, anyway? It doesn't look like there's be any tournaments or anything.

                  No way they have to introduce some battles just like they did in Orange Islands archipelago. What I was saying before was like the character could appear in 2-3 episodes and battle Ash

                    Some battles, sure, but would a rival really make an appearance? They've had so many rivals in Unova, why not just bring one of them back (Stephan ♥)?

                      Ah I see what you did there :D. Maybe but I say if any one wants to come back (who actually has a fitting place it is Trip !!!!)

                        True, true. They really didn't do much with Trip. So much wasted potential. :| And then he just kind of left? wth man

                          Yes they should have him more in the anime. The way he left from the anime made me shell shocked . You know bumping into Ash or helping him suddenly from some obstacle. It could all fit easily

                          Trip lacked story and dept and backstory. All we know is that he wanted to beat Alder upon meeting him. He then lost in the first round of the Anime to Ash. Most rivals this time around aren't that great because, hey, we barely see them.

                          I think Trip could have been a much better character if they went into the amount of back story that they did with Paul.

                            We saw the rivals all the time though? The (somewhat)friendly-rival tournament group was amazing. Burgundy, Georgia, Stephan, and Bianca were really great. Luke was cool, Cameron was fun, Vigil... kinda bored me lol. Trip was just kind of ignored as the writers focused on the more interactive people. I feel like they shouldn't have had him at all and instead let Bianca take his roles in the beginning because like... he didn't do much besides provide some game!Cheren/BA!Cheren Alder-worship.

                            Eh. Virgil was introduced too close to the Pokemon League for me to even decide if I like him or not. Now, Luke on the other hand is a cutie. He's not much of a battling rival, but I do like him because he's one of the most unique rivals in the anime. Cameron was funny because he's so headstrong and silly, but again, introduced too close to the Pokemon League. We always get one new rival near the league, I know, but two is too much. Burgundy on the other hand is the best. She's so funny and I love how she's only a C class sommilier. Georgia was never a favorite of mine, but I do like her because of her hairstyle. And, finally, Bianca always reminded me of a female incarnation of Barry. Despite that I love her for rushing into things so often. Well, you are right we somewhat saw them all the time. Then again Best Wishes wasn't as long as the other sagas...

                              Well... B&W + Rival Destinies is actually 5 episodes longer than AG + Adv Challenge. And Best Wishes as a whole is approaching the same length as the entirety of Hoenn (minus Battle Frontier). And all of that is longer than Kanto + Orange or the entirety of Johto. Compared to DP it doesn't seem like a lot, but it's certainly a decent length. And it seems like it's gone kinda fast as well. There hasn't been a lot of dragging-on fillers and the main trio haven't gotten lost millions of times and things have constantly progressed.

                              You're right about Virgil and Cameron though- they were introduced wayyy too close to the league and weren't really developed as characters. To me, Virgil was kind of bland and Cameron too aggressively pushed into everything.

He's not much of a battling rival, but I do like him because he's one of the most unique rivals in the anime. Cameron was funny because he's so headstrong and silly, but again, introduced too close to the Pokemon League. We always get one new rival near the league, I know, but two is too much. Burgundy on the other hand is the best. She's so funny and I love how she's only a C class sommilier. Georgia was never a favorite of mine, but I do like her because of her hairstyle. And, finally, Bianca always reminded me of a female incarnation of Barry. Despite that I love her for rushing into things so often. Well, you are right we somewhat saw them all the time. Then again Best Wishes wasn't as long as the other sagas...
                                So after reading your theory I say Stephan is the real character they should revolve around Dekorora too. Right?

                                I'm not really sure if I liked Virgil because of his character, or just because he had a Vaporeon and the other Eeveelutions. I wonder if we'll see him again with a Sylveon...

                                  Actually we probably will. There's really no other reason for them to randomly introduce a character with ALL the Eeveelutions.

                                  And I reaaaally think Stephan should come back for Decolora because he's great ok <3

                                    Speaking of which are you trying to say that they will introduce Sylveon too early in the anime i-e in Dekorora. Virgil by the ways fits for it's trainer

                                    I think we'll see Sylveon in the anime after it's been in the movie short.

                                      Yeah, what Vappy said. And Virgil could very well be its trainer. Wow wow did you guys see the new ending for Decolora? It implies everyone keeps in touch and I'm hoping that we'll see them again and asafdgfh
