If it wasn't for JN032 we would have gotten another 7 episode Kanto streak...

I prefer Go focus over COTD focus to be honest.

Do the writers have an obsession with doing a Pikachu spam every two years now? This episode would feel more fresh if it was about Pikachu having a low chance of appearing.

Why do I have this hunch that the writers want to troll us and have the Pikachu Goh will catch(if he catches one that is) touch a thunderstone and evolve like 5 seconds after it gets out of its pokeball? I can totally see them making the Pikachu land on top of a thunderstone by accident just so they can have Goh catch a Pikachu and not have one for the rest of the series to not take the spotlight from Ash's.

Or how about Go feeds it a pancake and suddenly it evolves into Alolan Raichu. :ROFLMAO:

Don't give them any more ridiculous ideas. They have enough already. Then again I also gave one so I'm not one to talk.
:wynaut: I’ll take any amount of ridiculous ideas if they involve having my boi Raichu on the main cast...

However Go’s potential Raichu seems doomed to be a background Pokemon.

Even if Go’s potential Raichu doesn’t show up that often, I wouldn’t be surprised if ends up being one of his more used Pokémon just because of it being a Pikachu originally. It would be nice to have a Raichu be owned by a main companion and the interactions with Ash’s Pikachu would be interesting.

I'd love for it to be a friendly sort of Raichu rather than the dickish ones always on their high horses that we've had hammered down for years.

I do wonder what sort of personality they might give it. They might want to make it as different from Ash’s as possible and make it a little more aloof, or they’ll go down a crush route where it’s overly friendly to Pikachu and we’ll get some Buneary-esque story assuming Go’s will be a girl.

I do think that Go will eventually get his hands on some evolutionary items for his Pokémon that need them, especially since Prof. Sakuragi has a seemingly endless budget for housing and feeding everyone at his lab and most evolution-item Pokémon don’t need any sort of battling experience.
