As some fans have noticed, Chloe has gotten more attention in the past two episodes and the upcoming one as well. This has led to speculation that she may join Ash and Goh on their journies in the future.

Let's say that this is indeed the case, even if she doesn't join Ash and Goh every single time. What do you think Chloe can contribute in terms of the group dynamic? One thing I can imagine is her breaking up Ash and Goh's arguments.

Even if she starts liking Pokémon more and more, I don’t think her personality will fundamentally change and she will still retain some her more aloof traits which will allow her to contrast with Ash and Go’s excitability. She’d kind of be like a straight-man to their loud and comedic antics.

Hence my argument breaker comment. "Will you two stop bickering already?"

Also, if she is added, giving some much-needed female representation, it won't change how unique the traveling group already is, not counting Sun and Moon's school angle. No Gym Leaders for one thing. While Ash is the most experienced, I don't really see him being a mentor to the two like he kind of was to May. They would more or less be on equal footing.

I'd be cool with that.

Satoshi and Go are actually pretty watchable as they are but having Koharu as well would be (y) If written as it should, it would be the most interesting group dynamic since OS.

Agree! I really like Ash and Go, they're so much like brothers, and I think Koharu's calm and realistic approach to life would be a good contrast as a main character alongside them. Can't see it happening, personally, but it's a nice thought nonetheless. :bulbaLove:

I see Koharu is supposed to be the girl character for this season, but TPC just wants her on the sidelines for now... Maybe because the 2 "hotblooded shonen" males and one "reasonable, level-headed" female may get old pretty fast. But we'll see more of flower girl soon. Maybe.

One could hope that that’s not their thought process as that kinda rings a bit sexist especially if they feel that the reasonable, level-headed one drags the other 2 down rather then balancing things out. If anything, having too many of the same style personality gets boring fast due to it’s extremely limiting when it comes to the characters bouncing off of one another.

knowing Japan's track record with women IRL and in entertainment, I don't think they care about sexism...

I just hope Koharu's character gets better over time

The latest episode showed there's some hope for her yet...

At the very least, she could be a companion without being a trainer and keep the boys straight while helping them out. She could be like Max or RotomDex, but actually DO something besides standing around giving info.

They are building up to her becoming a Pokemon professor or researcher.
