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.
Incineroar is actually extremely popular in Japan.

I know, I’m actually the person who argued that during Sun/Moon.

Inteleon too, like Incineroar can be popular while having a vocal minority hating it.

I don't think that Ash will catch anything in these upcoming episodes.

Yeah but incineroar is probably the most popular out of the gen 7 starter evolutions.
Nope, its already confirmed Primarina is the most popular fully evolved, followed by Incineroar. However, Rowlet is the most popular Alola Pokemon and as such the most popular starter. Followed by Primarina (3rd popular Alola mon after Mimikyu). Litten is more popular than Incineroar as well, who is not even in the top 10 most popular Alola Pokemon (Only placed 12th).

Last time i checked, Sobble was the most popular base stage in gen 8, while Inteleon was the second most popular fully evolved (After Cinderace, which i don't understand, since Cinderace is not a Pokemon, but a human in a bunny suit). While this doesn't guarantee Sobble for Ash, the chances Ash getting Sobble are higher than him getting Grookey if he gets only one starter.

What's the source? Some poll with a decently large sample size or what you’ve seen individuals say on the Internet?

I'd think that they knew what they were doing when they made Scorbunny the main Galar representative of the series. Even if Ash gets one of the other two (in no way guaranteed despite what you think you're owed), Scorbunny will get more screentime.

I don’t know about the final evolutions but I know of the polls I’ve seen for the base trio, including the ones on our own forums, Sobble tended to be the fan favorite of the three. Scorbunny was pretty close behind though and poor Grookey was the least popular
This and a twitter poll also had Sobble as the most popular at some point.

So Go caught a Skwovet yet Ash didn't even attempt to catch the Drednaw

I have to say that was disappointing

I should have known the anime would pull this waste of potential they always do
I think it's actually good no one caught the Gigantamax Drednaw yet. Team Rocket is better off working their way up from a Chewtle, Ash's Gigantamax is Pikachu, and Go isn't really a battler.

Part of me hopes that Team Rocket will keep Chewtle for now, maybe give it to Giovanni at the end when it evolves

Still wish Ash had caught it

This actually looks like a pretty exciting episode. It would be nice if Gou didn't catch anything though.

Doesn't seem likely.
Even if he does capture a mon, it should have some sort of substance like what the upcoming Cubone episode just might have.

His recent Skwovet capture was absolutely selfish of him and done in an inconsiderate manner.

Most of his captures are selfish, so that is not a surprise.
