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.
we literally see them outside with the classmates as Ash is leaving Alola, and later we see Rowlet and Lycanroc sleeping at Kukui’s.

I think Ash will bring reserves to the dome while using them.
Imagine, he needs melmetal, he calls upon him, he brings it with him to the dome.
I really think this is how everything will roll out. Little by little. Introduction per introduction. After that, we see them all the time and will also be recalls to those episodes.

Rowlet is not all about hiding in Ash's backpack, afterall.
Um, yes he was. The only other thing he did was be a selfish ass and sleep when Ash needed him

I hope they use this as a chance to bring all of Ash's Pokemon permanently into one place, like they should be.

Since they possibly will break some more tradition, could you see Ash capture another electric type pokemon ?
if so wich electric pokemon do you guys think fits ash the most apart from pikachu?

my top 3 would be:
- Zeraora
- Luxray
- Electrivire

Riolu/Lucario and Garchomp just keep showing up. Since they were also in the playset I feel pretty confident both will be recurring somehow.

We've also seen a decent amount of Machamp, possibly because of the TR gacha? We also know now why we keep seeing Gengar.

Checking the poster again I see Garchomp and I think Lucario there, as well.

I hope we see older ones returning and not a Machamp that gets caught, fully evolved just for the sake of it.

Rowlet was far worse.
At least Oshawott could evolve into Dewott and keep that persona easily
Agreed I still want to squash that bird personally

It’s a hatred fueled ghost type, like mimikyu it’ll take a lot more than a thunderbolt to bring them down.

A lot of people want ash to catch a toxicrity but it’s too punk rock to be an ash Pokémon.

Ash's Bulbasaur and Squirtle aren't gonna evolve. In-lore wise, it makes no sense for them to evolve. Bulbasaur has refused evolution in the past and Squirtle makes no sense because of the Squirtle Squad.

And i am betting on Garchomp, Machamp and Lucario belonging to some past major characters or Game Characters:
Garchomp = Cynthia
Machamp = Bruno/Bea
Lucario = Korrina

Considering we don't see Dragonite here, i doubt it has anything to do with Ash or Gou capture related, unless Dragonite isn't gonna be a permanent member on the team. Mr.Mime is also only present in one of the merchandise pieces.

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
And this isn’t even mentioning the fact that we’ve seen evolved forms of a species leading a group of unevolved Pokemon before.

The Squirtle squad is a local group that doesn’t have a mandate to be a specific evolution stage. It was the orange island episodes that had different official “teams” for each stage.

The Squirtle Squad (Squirtle Squad - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia) =/=Team Squirtle(FROM THE ORANGE ISLAND FILLER EP106 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia)

Didn't Bulbasaur refuse evolution just because it wasn't ready to evolve yet back then?

Evolution could give Bulbasaur some character development after all these years.

Regarding the Kanto starters I see some possiblities:
1) A focus episode for all 3, which has already happened in the past.
2) A focus episode for Blastoise which is the one who hasn't appeared.
3) They are just placeholders for cool Pokémon, since they apparently can't use Rillaboom, Cinderace and Inteleon yet. Has there been any merchandise for post-release revealed Gen 8 Pokemon?

Also I think that Garchomp and Lucario could come from a Megaevolution episode in Kalos, since it feels too soon for Sinnoh again.
