    Yes, that's exactly my point. Bonnie has loopholes, so there's zero reason why they can't use said loopholes again.

    Given Journeys' love of furthering past companions' dreams, it's weird they haven't brought back Max to finally give him that Ralts. And it's not like they can use the "he's too young to be a Trainer" excuse anymore. Bonnie exists, and they managed to give her two.

    I'd be fine with Ash using reserves if this was a Round Robin competition and he'd battle all seven. But he's only facing three and the Journeys team still needs to make up for the lackluster treatment they received during most of the show's run.

    He literally used two.

    Indeed. I have a similar problem with how Legendaries are often shown to be way more powerful than necessary.

    Controversial opinions

    Maybe, but you could also say it's silly to project the concept of human morality onto what is essentially an alien.

    Dawn isn't from a series that has the bonds between family as one of its most prominent themes.

    Nothing about Journeys' premise would have to be altered if the home base was set in Galar. Absolutely nothing. Both the people who want character returns and those who want focus on Galar win in the end.

    Bianca exists too, y'know.

    Please stop the whataboutisms and actually answer the question.

    Greninja has wins, so no.

    Her hair, obviously. Just stuff the Balls in there until they're needed.

    Controversial opinions

    VAs are highly respected in Japan, and it's considered rude to replace them unless they're dead or involved in scandals like Raihan's was.

    Controversial opinions

    The point of the Minor League is that's for Gym Leaders who lose too many times and are considered too weak to be part of the Gym Challenge. It's "league" as in "division or section", not something people go on a quest for.

    Ever since the ep aired, I've heard this take. I'm going to add my two cents to it: Mallow's mom did not come out of nowhere. Not completely, at least. One of the more consistent themes of SM is family. You know, ohana and all that. Said theme is repeatedly shown with our protagonists. Kiawe's...

    It's an obvious nod to Nanu being an International Police member. Not sure how that's not clear.

    We have absolutely zero clue how man Gen VIII mons will be in SV and little reason to believe any of them will get actual focus.

    Controversial opinions

    We've had equivalents in almost every game since Gen V.

    Controversial opinions

    The writers gave Iris Excadrill because the Japanese word for mole (mogura, or doryuu) literally translates to "earth dragon". It's blatantly a pun.

    Also Iris.
