    I genuinely misread that as
    'what if the episode ends with Prof. Kukui placing Ash into Rockruff's care?'

    Would be more apt.

    Rockruff would be great at looking after Ash. I don't see why Pokemon can't take care of Trainer. But in all seriousness, the picture for SM016 does show Ash standing near Rockruff, but Professor Kukui could just be out of the shot.

    I can see this happening since Rockruff likes spending time with Ash and Pikachu already

    I can kinda see Rockruff bonding a lot with Ash after spending all that time training and defeating whatever Pokemon it fights, then Kukui entrusting Rockruff to him thinking it's what Rockruff wants

    Still, why Boober? Seems random.

    Weak to rock moves? Though type advantage isn't a big deal in the anime.

    Maybe it's important here. But regardless of Magmar, I wonder what the Lycanroc and the other wild Pokemon have to do with this episode. Maybe the Midnight one disrupts the training and so Magmar's Pokemon friends come to attack it.

    It looks like the Lycanroc don't actually physically appear in this episode. Most likely an imagination of what Rockruff can evolve into, visualized by Kukui or Rotom.

    Rockruff adorable as usual I see... nice to see Ash is finally getting another Pokemon (if not this episode, by 18 he'll have it)

    Glad to see it looks like a more action-oriented episode.

    Can't believe no one noticed that Rockruff got into water to put out the fire on its tail, anime logic there everyone

    I can't remember the last time the Tomioka/Iwane combo produced a dull episode, so those action-y additional preview pictures don't surprise me. Hopefully we're in for a good one.

    I suppose that the Rockruff Professor Kukui has is actually a wild Pokémon that is only being cared by him? Is Ash really going to keep Rockruff? We'll just have to wait and see tomorrow morning.

    In about 6 or so more hours we'll see how Ash will keep Rockruff and bond with it even further
    I think you're up to something there, we've never seen Rockruff inside a Pokeball so far so it could be a wild one, who knows
