    I would have to go with the majority here and say Serena. Like I've said many times on this forum before, judging by how out-of-the-blue the Kanto arc was and how Kukui "secretly arranged" for Misty and Brock to meet the class because he knew they used to be friends of Ash's, I think they could definitely find some way to do the same with Serena.

    More importantly, I feel like she would have great chemistry with some of Ash's classmates as well, especially Lillie. Lillie is probably going to be changing into her "Z-Powered Form" pretty soon so the fact that Serena also had a wardrobe change mid-series would be pretty ironic.

    If it were me writing the episodes, I would definitely have Serena & Lillie have a heart-to-heart talk about developing self-confidence & finding your way as a Trainer...and maybe they could even have a battle with each other. I could definitely see Snowy (possibly as an Alolan Ninetales by then?) really getting along well with Serena's Sylveon because of how both of them started out shy yet have grown into powerful battlers due to bonding with their Trainers.

    Dawn would be my second choice, because Diamond & Pearl was one of my favorite arcs, I'm still pretty bummed out that we'll have to wait awhile longer for remakes, and, unlike Serena, Professor Kukui would have a reason to call her in to the school as a guest speaker - to teach Ash's classmates about Pokémon Contests! I could see some great bits of humor between Piplup and Popplio as well.

    I know Iris has yet to make a reappearance beyond that one special episode, but I'd be fine with her not appearing again - at many times in the Best Wishes series it felt like she just didn't like Ash, and that wasn't very fun to watch.

    And, now he has two votes. :) If the group comes to Hoenn, Max can return and befriend the group (I sadly don't think May can come back because of VA issues).

    Edit: Max also has VA issues. He's going to need a new English VA (his first is too busy and his second is retired). Unlike Japan, Americans aren't obsessed with their VAs and the casting department for the dub can easily find a new VA for Max if the writers ever decide to bring him back.

    Serena would be my first choice. But Dawn would be a very close second.

    If you say so. I wondering Acerola will be the voice of her. Since Kukui had announced wanted to establishing An League in Alolan. In which he needed the Elite Four as Acerola is one of them. I believe she is going to make an appearance after Aether Arc is done since most of SM series voice actor and actress are mainly from BW series.

    So I'm not surprised, that Iris voice actress return to voice one of the character. But we will if she will make an appearance. If is, then she will be one hell of the funniest character, especially pulling scary prank because most of the time as Orphanage. She is always companion with Ghost Type Pokémon a lot.
