Anime spoilers up to the most recent episode below

Hi guys. In this thread I'll post my predictions about upcoming PM episode titles and plots in general. Check my Sun & Moon predictions here.

Each episode of the new anime taking place on a new region means that this series will be impossible to predict accurately, but I'll do my best. Annotations in brackets. I initially thought there would be Galar episodes throughout, but maybe it's better in the form of an arc later. Obviously they'll go back to Kanto after it ends.

-PM001: Let's Go! A fateful encounter and a new adventure! (DP001 but with Go)
-PM002: Sakuragi Laboratory! First capture mission!
-PM003: Team Rocket attacks! Protect the Kanto starters! (Kanto)
-PM004: Nimbasa City! The ghost of the amusement park! (Unova)
-PM005: Flabebe, Floette and the Florges Queen! (Kalos)
-PM006: Koharu's day off! The mischievous Cramorant!
-PM007: Reach the Mirage Tower with Flygon! (Hoenn)
-PM008: The mystery of the Ruins of Alph! (Johto)
-PM009: Eevee! Miraculous capture! (Kanto again)
-PM010: Legendary Encounter! Enter Regigigas! (Sinnoh)
-PM011: Get the treasure! Pirates of Alola!
-PM012: Galar Region! Happiness and Sadness! (Galar Arc begins, Grookey and Sobble join the group)
-PM013: Dynamax Battle! Pikachu vs Meowth!
-PM014: Hop and the most delicious curry!
-PM015: Battle of champions! Ash vs Leon!

That's all for now, I hope you liked it.

Hi guys, now that we have news about Ash's goal I can speculate about upcoming episodes. Another thing I noticed is that apparently Kanto episodes will be very common, currently 50% of the series is about that region or its Pokemon. Anyway, let's begin.


-PM017: Megaevolution in Kalos! Lucario vs Garchomp! (Korrina could appear but I wouldn't bet on it)
-PM018: Alola, Alola! Dhelmise's sunken ship! (Yeah, it's a recycled plot, but many things in this series are. It's hard to predict how will they approach Alola.)
-PM019: Clefairy in Mt. Moon! Koharu's first mission!
-PM020: Professor Magnolia enters! Grookey, Sobble and the shy Scorbunny! (Could happen in either Kanto or Galar)
-PM021: Hammerlocke Gym! Climatic battle! (If that tweet is to be believed)
-PM022: Lake of Rage! Find the Red Gyarados! (Inspired by Lance's, Go aims to find his own Gyarados. He ends up with Shiny Remoraid or Wooper instead.)
-PM023: Lavaridge Town! Challenge in the hot springs! (Houji returns)
-PM024: Goodbye Mr. Mime! Ash vs Delia! (Ash vs Delia fight for who gets to keep Mimey and is finally said who is its trainer. Too awesome to happen)
-PM025: Mirage Island! Wynaut? Wobbuffet! (It's about time TR gets its own episode, and the blue blob needs it the most. They could move the island to Kanto or Johto.)

That's all for now. I'll review my final Sun &Moon predictions in early to mid March, so be sure to check the link in my signature.
 
This, too, shall pass...

Some of your predictions for the first chunk came true if not always in the exact episodes. 13 was actually quite close. (y)

Could you explain what you mean by "that tweet" in regards to your episode 21 prediction? I don't think I've heard about that.

An official tweet said that Ash might challenge "that" Dragon specialist as part of his new goal. I am not sure why people are betting on Raihan when Lance is the one that recently appeared in relation to the World Championships. Anyway, even if it's Raihan, it won't be a gym battle.

It depends on how they want to handle Ash's story. If they want to give him another defeat and bring in continuity it will be Lance, if they want to give him a win or a draw it could be Raihan. Both choices are strange for this point of the series though, I would have preferred Milo or Nessa.

They didn't say that it would happen anytime soon, though. Just that it might happen along his path to Leon, which is kind of obvious (it might not happen, but it's such a distinct possibility if Ash gets remotely close to challenging Leon). I don't think that the tweet randomly spoiled an upcoming episode.

@Silktree You're right, maybe the tweet is just saying that Ash has to be better than Lance in order to get at least close to beating Leon, it's hard to say without a reliable translation.

However, Ash does have to take part in Galar gym battles to promote Dynamax, as it doesn't seem to be available in the other regions.

Here's a small prediction I made for April Fools over a month ago. I doubt I'll include it on next year's prediction review unless something is right.

SS024: Go goes to the aquarium! A catching spree!
SS025: Pewter Gym challenge! Ash vs Blanche!
SS026: Ninja battle in Kalos! Toshi and Toshi Greninja!
SS027: Muk's attack! Operation clean the Institute!
SS028: Kanto Safari Zone! Go catches everything and Ash catches Tauros!
SS029: Melemele Island! Lilo, the boy who can't touch Pokémon!
SS030: Ash and Arcanine!
SS031: Professor Sakuragi and Alakazam!
SS032: Ash's first PWC loss? Go and Cinderace's bond is unbreakable!
SS033: Finally, the Galar starters! Rookidee, Scorbunny and Blipbug!

Hi guys, it's time for another one of these. The overabundance of Kanto and Lab Slice of life stuff + the lack of subplots make it harder to get something right in this series but I'll keep trying as it's very fun to do.

-JN033: Farfetch'd vs Zorua! Midnight battle! (My original idea was to use Riolu, but he appears to be getting focus on JN030)
-JN034: Let´s draw Pokemon Manga! (Chloe's mom focus)
-JN035: Naboru's trial of fire! Burn, Raboot! (Evolution time. It may feel early but they could want to reference Raboot's evolution level)
-JN036: Grookey, king of the Wild Area!
-JN037: Jessie, startle Stantler! and James, smear Smeargle! (Double episode, sorry for the puns)
-JN038: Raid in the deep Eterna Forest! Tangrowth enters!
-JN039: Aim for the Hyper Class! Double Battle in Mosdeep City! (Ash won't rank up in this episode, but PWC titles like to be overdramatic for some reason. And yes, the twins return but not Sophocles.)
-JN040: Getting lucky with Chansey!
-JN041: Rotom revolution! Chryssa and Ren's mission!
-JN042: Return to the Alola Region! Mantine Surf Race! (I'm getting convinced that if they are holding Alola this long it's because it's gonna have some continuity. However, I only see Kukui, Mallow and maybe Ash's Pokemon returning.)
-JN043: A recipe for Crabrawler! (Go and Mallow bond.)
-JN044: Z-Power! Ash vs Trial Captain Mina! (Okay, I highly doubt the Alola return will last more than 2 episodes, so this episode and the previous one can't coexist. But I put it here just in case.)
-JN045: A new rival approaches! Marnie and the Isle of Armor! (Arc start? Maybe, I don't know, I just want to throw in these two elements to increase my chances of getting something right.)
-JN046: When Marnie was there! (I just wanted to make the reference, even thought Marnie's Japanese name is Mary.)


That's all for now, thanks for reading.
