As much as I do like her as a ''villain'', I do think a nice ending for her would be of a ''reformed'' Jessie coming back to Sinnoh, as herself this time, and actually winning the Grand Festival. I do like how they showed us that she deserved to be in the semi-finals and she was actually really good as a Coordinator. But I guess I will have to dream of this lol.
Incidentally I find that BW's approach to altering Team Rocket would have been better served two ways. Have Butch and Cassidy become the more serious villainous Rockets, while our favorite trio a season beforehand would have an arc putting them on the path to redemption.

And if the reception is well met then BW and up could have them as recurring/main characters outside of Team Rocket. Kind of like unofficial traveling companions who just happen to meet up with Ash, but not actually serving the Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, Cilan, etc, role.

Heck Sun and Moon at times they seem less like criminals planning an evil scheme and just people trying to get by.

Hey, guys. I'm just wondering why you think Ash's Dracovish had never learned Fishious Rend?

Anyone else think we should get another Pokémon Chronicles-esque show or more Specials just to see what the other characters are up to when Ash isn't around?

Like I just saw this Art on Twitter and thought this was legitimately REAL screenshots! XD

My first immediate thought was, "Huh? How come this Forum isn't having a Field Day over this?" Lmao

But all jokes aside I legitimately would like to see more of Ash's old companions meeting each other.

I hope Iris and Gary meet. I'd LOVE to see Gary's reaction to Iris calling him a kid! XD

His art is so good that if I didn't know any better I would have been fooled into thinking these were real images.

We haven't seen any of it's moves yet, neither in it's debut episode or in any battle. But considering Goh's Arctozolt does knows Bolt Beak, I don't think it's that impossible for it to already know it. And the thing about signature moves, at least the attacking ones, is that they always get showcased, saved a few exceptions. It's always like this ''extra content'' for the Pokémon in question that they can use, u know?

No, it didn't. At least it looks it didn't. Bulbapedia has no moves on Dracovish's page. And they didn't mentioned it in JN50 :unsure:

Bulbapedia doesn’t confirm a move unless it’s named. Dracovish did use a water spewing move, but it was never stated which.
Hum. Now that I do think about this, it makes sense. It's best to not put a move there when they don't know which move was used to avoid confusion.

But I'm still sure they will showcase it's signature move tbh.

It shot a giant blast of water.
