    Told ya'll that Fujisaku likely meant the Meltan evolution was happening here. Also, appears the finals are just this one episode. View: https://twitter.com/Pokemon_cojp/status/1167361373652885504 They're having a contest where whoever correctly predicts the winner gets put in a lottery to...

    We really don't have time for Rainbow Rocket. It's gonna be your standard TR scheme that gets easily foiled by the heroes. Don't insult Shudo, boy, this show would be nothing without him

    Or since the Meltan are coming, they devour Team Rocket's merch before merging into Melmetal.

    Then again, Alain only got that side series BECAUSE they didn't have time to develop his character in the series proper, as stated an interview with the series director.

    Midnight Lycanroc still needs to lose to Dusk Lycanroc. If any of Gladion's Pokemon sits this out, it would be Umbreon, but it'll most likely be a 4v4. We went up to 2v2 because Guzma has two Pokemon, so I see no reason not to go up to 4v4 now that Gladion will be the one with the lowest number...

    The anime has ALWAYS diverged from the source material. This isn't even the furthest it's diverged.

    I will say that if Ash loses, it'll be really awkward if he just smiles it off like he did in the past two series instead of looking genuinely upset like he did during the fakeout in the Hau battle.

    If by some miracle Kiawe actually beat Gladion and this is Ash vs Kiawe, I bet everyone'll change their tune to "Ash is definitely winning".

    It still won't happen because of how much the franchise relies on the show for sales. A month break right before the release of a new generation would be the dumbest business decision ever.

    We saw Gladion introducing Zoroark to all of his Pokemon. There's a whole month between September and November.

    We literally saw Gladion's entire team the episode right before the league. Aside from the Zoroark he obtained in that episode, Umbreon, Lycanroc, and Silvally are still all he's got.

    It can't be 6v6 because Ash only has 5 and Gladion only has 4. The highest it can go is 4v4.

    Nothing because Gladion is Ash's one and only rival. Their rivalry has been 100% serious.

    There's really no functional difference between Ash finishing with Gigavolt Havoc or finishing with 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt. The latter just looks cooler.

    Z-Crystal that's named after a portmanteau of Ash and Pikachu's names and works when Pikachu wears Ash's hat. Gee, I wonder how it works

    The summary says nothing about Melmetal and Fujisaki, who wrote the episode where Meltan started calling for the others, is writing this.

    Melmetal GG, I don't see a Mythical jobbing in its first ever battle.
