There are thousands of people in Wyndon Stadium. I wouldn’t be surprised if they revealed characters like Misty, Brock, and Serena were already at the stadium in person, it just wouldn’t have been known beforehand due to how crowded it is. Sure, only Dawn and Chloe said good luck to Ash before his battle with Leon, which is worrying and doesn’t reassure us. But that doesn’t mean some of the other characters couldn’t also be there. There’s also the fact that Serena said she’ll be cheering for Ash at the end of JN105. It would be objectively bad writting if those were empty words, and Ash would be more than happy to hear Serena cheer for him among the crowd, rather than hope she’s watching through TV. If Serena doesn’t appear by this episode in any capacity, then people have a right to be upset about that. However, I’m going to remain optimistic. If they really didn’t want the possibiiltiy of Serena watching Ash in person to be a thing, they wouldn’t have met up in JN105 at all. Sure, she could just watch him on TV, but considering how they emphasized their dynamic at the end of JN105, I feel like we’re going to get something more meaningful than that.Depends on your definition of ‘in person’, I suppose. If you mean getting a cameo, I can see it happening. If you mean at the stadium, considering we haven’t gotten an appearance from any companion besides Dawn and Koharu and we’re half way through the battle, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
