I wish people would take their mind off Ash's Squirtle evolving, since in-lore wise, it doesn't make sense for it to evolve (Bromance with Bulbasaur and leader of the Squirtle Squad would be weird for it to be a Blastoise).
Squirtle never said he didn't want to.
Though I'd much rather Totodile fully evolve over Squirtle

I'm pretty sure that he just wanted to defeat it.
But that means he will catch it?
Also shouldn’t that Pokémon has its own page since returning
It seems to be double comfired by Main characters and at the ending

love to see it’s personality
Seems strong enough to handle Ash pikachu and continue the battle with good stamina and endurance
was this Pokémon getting stronger or something seems to absorbing the heat to get more powerful
I wonder why he was attacking everyone

I was curious in that battle tournament ep 7 of new series

that guy who uses Myightyena against GO Pokémon did it get stronger for defeating both pokemon
I forgot how anime is compared to the game
If go Syther beat myightyena will it get enough strength to weaken hariyama for Scorbunny

Ash says that Gengar is really strong, Go says that he wants to catch it, and then Ash adds that they'll compete over it next time. So I guess that Ash is interested in Gengar, but I doubt that either one of them will win the competition.

1. I don't know how Bulbapedia is run. Technically, Gengar isn't confirmed to be recurring until it actually returns, as likely as that may be.
2. Maybe the lab used to be Gengar's home and it doesn't like other people staying there. The Moon Pokedex entry is especially interesting: "It apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans."

The writers should have made Bulbasaur evolve into Ivasaur in Kanto and stay that way because if Squirtle evolves, he would lose his gang.

Who even said that a Wartortle couldn’t hypothetically lead a Squirtle squad? This isn’t the "Team Squirtle"/"Team Wartortle" from the Orange Island episode where all members have to be on a specific evolution stage.

I'd have really liked Ivysaur/Wartortle or both, seeing that they’re my favourite stages of their respectice

I like both of them the way they are now.Although it wouldn't bother me if one of them or both evolve.From my point of view the starters they should have evolved are snivy and oshawott.Servine/Serperior any would have been fine.And Ash with a goofy and strong Samurott would have been just awesome.

Much as I would love Ash to finally have a Ghost type, if the Gengar from SS011 does get caught, would like it to be Koharu

I Honestly think Koharu will choose a career path we have never seen before. One that does not care about catching pokémon.
And with my thoughts, that leaves us with 3 scenarios
Ash catches it and it has a very good friend in Koharu
Koharu befriends it and it stays like this forever
Ash catches it, but after some time he gives it to Koharu
This is my opinion

Rowlet was far worse.
At least Oshawott could evolve into Dewott and keep that persona easily
I don't think Rowlet was worse than Oshawott as a comedic relief. As a matter of fact, I find Oshawott the worst comedic relief in the franchise until now. Besides, Rowlet could also keeep that persona easily if it meant to evolve. Rowlet is not all about hiding in Ash's backpack, afterall.

What's happening with you guys? Other than his very last remaining Pikachu, I just want to know why you think Ash has not actually left all his Alolan party Pokémon at Professor Oak's Laboratory, but only at Professor Kukui's home instead? Please let me know the reason, thanks.
