Since there's no Riolu figure coming out in January, Ash won't catch the damn thing
Thing is, Canalave City is really far from Hearthome. REALLY FAR.
And, much later on, they still have to go back to Hearthome for the fourth and final time for Sinnoh Grand Festival.
We don't know for sure the GF will be there... while it sounds like a good speculation for it - don't say it as a fact
Did anyone else notice how he just mentioned Riolu? nothing about an egg or something like that... I doubt the egg will hatch the same episode or one after it... it usually takes a few episodes for an egg to hatch
Anyone think they throwed away the whole egg thing and simply have it appear as a Riolu already?
Water Pokémon Master said:Maybe Riolu won't listen to Riley and Ash decides to train it for a few episodes since he has strong Aura. Or something.
