Having used Drednaw in Sword, I would love to see Ash catch it

I think that no one will catch Drednaw.
Time will tell I guess

The summary for SS016 mentions Go dealing with a Cubone and a Mankey

Wonder if he'll end up catching both, if not he'll probably catch Cubone based on the summary of his interactions

I don't think that Ash will have any of the Galar starters at this point.

There's nobody else who can get Grookey and Sobble. At least one has to go to Ash for marketing purposes.

Go isn't going to do anything with them, he doesn't battle.

If Ash was getting one of them then it would have already happened.

Don't forget Johto. It took 25 episodes for Cyndaquil and 35 episodes for Totodile to be caught.

Ash didn't catch Litten until SM021.
And he didn't get Chimchar until DP052

Yeah, but he always gets at least one of the starters within the first 10 episodes of the new series. Chikorita was the latest capture (10 episode into Johto).

If Ash catches that Drednaw this "could" mean no Sobble for him.Man I really want to see Ash turn this timid cutie into a confident badass
Me too but a lot of people hate inteleon plus sobble is more merchandisable. I think they might give sobble to Koharu so that they can expand her world views and on Pokémon.

The Gigantamax Inteleon memes disagree. Some people thought the same about Litten and Incineroar and see what happened.

Yeah but incineroar is probably the most popular out of the gen 7 starter evolutions.
A fair portion of people argued that Incineroar is hideous and Litten is more marketable. The consensus was fairly divided and there’s a similar case for Inteleon.
