If Gengar strikes up a primary friendship with Ash, it would be weird for it to join anyone other than Ash (unless it shows a change in desire like Aipom/Buizel later on).

It does matter because it's not right to say Koharu/Yamper 'defeated' Gengar, when the only reason they managed to do so was because Ash and Pikachu did most of the heavy lifting. You're right about the latter but as of now, I don't see how Gengar can really help her especially when the 16th episode states Gengar's connection with Ash. So far, there's nothing to connect Koharu with the purple menace.
It seems like just another episode about wreaking havoc to me; I don't know why Gengar would curse Ash and then bond with it. I agree that whoever befriends Gengar will get to keep it, but we don't know who that is yet. Gengar could easily get another episode because right now it's a bigger villain than Team Rocket, and for all we know that will always be its role.

What’s the next region to explored afther Unova
Unknown. Probably Kalos, but who knows.

I dunno? For the same reason Bayleef tackled Ash? Gible, Totodil, Turtwig etc. biting his head? Even if Gengar has malicious or mischievous intentions instead of friendly ones, Ash is the only one on the cast that can match its fiery spirit and temper him. That factor is something that Koharu is very much incapable of at the moment (though my opinion might change after the 16th episode and if there's another Koharu episode soon).

Dragonite managed to go toe-to-toe with Golurk in this episode and suffice to say, it could manage to defeat the Golurk without help from Gou's cheaply caught Darmanitan. And no, we won't talk about what happened to Pikachu in the latest episode because it looks like a very cheap writing cop-out just like the Ground type issue.
What u mean cheap out fights
Also what about powerful of ash Pokémon I was asking

It was a Raid Battle boss. They're supposed to be very durable and hard to take down.
I’m curious this raid battle wasn’t the first time wasn’t their others in the past where they battle large Pokémon what about that giant cladol

This is completely random im sorry but we need help on disney+ if you like lion guard please support we trying to get another season of series hopefully they could same level of lion king movie animated had did

I am starting to hate Gou more and more. He doesn't only capture strong Pokemon without any effort, he also steals them from Ash without doing any effort. Can they write Gou off this series already, only then it will be good. This series is worse than the Black and White series and that says a lot.

That's going more than a bit too far. BW was far worse than what we've been getting so far.
Indeed. Ash is mostly good at battling in this series. But I don't know how to feel about Gou catching strong Pokemons without improving his battling skill.

Yeah no chance. At least in BW, we had interesting characters alongside Ash, if Gou wasn't present, you wouldn't even miss him. He is the most boring travelling companion ever.

Ash is way more competent in this series than in BW. That alone gives this series a huge advantage in my eyes.

I doubt the writers give a crap what a bunch of westerns online think about Go.
Yeah, that's why they won't change the way the write his character.
And that's why I think from now on, Gou will be the only one getting strong Pokemons from Ash's Wild Pokemon Battles and not Ash himself.

Ash wanted to catch the Yamask Woobat that he saw in this episode, which shows that he's still interested in catching Pokemon. This, plus the fact that his first capture in this series was a pseudo-legendary and the high likelihood of him catching the Gengar in episode 16 means we'll probably see Ash catch more strong Pokemon in the future. Just not as often as Gou.

I don't know. After this episode, the possibility of Gou getting strong Pokemons has increased significantly because he don't need to be a good battler. Ash can do it for him.

I was rather disappointed that Go caught 3 Pokemon in SS014 and Ash caught none

Golurk and Darmanitan are powerful Pokemon that deserve a place on Ash's team and I don't really see Go using them

If the writers chose to write Gou's future captures like the way they wrote Golurk's capture in episode 14, then I really hope Gou will have Ash-Charizard situations with most of his strong captures. Because there's no way he will be motivated to become better at battling at this point when there's Ash doing it in his stead.

He at least won't use Golurk because he said it will be the guardian of Sakuragi Lab at the end of episode 14.

As I don't understand Japanese and without subs, I didn't realize that

My thoughts still stand
