I think he will stay a cubone to be honest if caught. Wished the beef was with a mandibuzz and not a mankey howeverI wonder if Gou will catch Cubone. But on the same time I also don't like the idea of Gou and Satoshi catching old Pokémon that has already gotten screentime through past companions. Gou already has a Scyther for example and Satoshi has a fully evolved Dragonite just like Iris (why can't they catch a Dratini and evolve it!?). While Kiawe didn't catch a Cubone, the line still got focus during the last season.
This also means even more Gen 1 pandering. Why don't they want to advertise the new Galarian Pokémon and forms? I think they are overestimating the amount of older people and Pokémon Go players watching this anime!
But then again I guess Gou catching Cubone might not necessarily mean anything considering how he doesn't use the Pokémon he catches anyway. Although I guess it would make him a little heartless if they give Cubone an angsty backstory like in the game. There was a lot of angsty stuff in SM so I wonder if the trend will continue.
