I'm getting the assumption Dawn's departure to Hoenn was the writers way to write her out of the series for good, especially since Contests are gone now.
I'd be very surprised if Dawn does appear in Unova, but I guess stranger things have happened.
Well, to give them their dues, they did start out as genuinely quite nefarious and competent antagonists, so for their first couple of appearances it was perfectly plausible that Giovanni would hold them in much higher regard than Jessie and James. Their decay in the villainy department was partly the inevitable result of them becoming recurring characters - let's face it, there are only so many times you can have your ass handed to you by a bunch of ten-year-olds and still come off as threatening. Naturally, the shabby way that Chronicles treated them didn't exactly help matters.It would be funny if Cassidy and Butch got demoted to the level that JJM were originally at because they were basically turning into clones of those 3 anyway, especially in Pokemon Chronicles. I don't see why Giovanni loved them so much when they screwed up just as much as the TRio did.
And how do you know she wont appear before final serie episode?You dont,knowing as much as others in here do.Never. The only time she may re-appear is the series final episode, whenever that is.
To who are you reffering too?First and foremost...
Misty will never be a main character again.
Deal with it.
