Gou is representative of Pokemon Go. What do you expect otherwise? Nuff said on that matter.
Whose mechanics obviously don't fit the anime and are contradictory of the anime's established rules because unlike the regular games (which have their features adapted into the games), GO is an augmented reality game. And even if it's based off Gou, there's better ways to make those captures interesting than the way it's executed in the anime. Even GO's captures aren't guaranteed easy success like Gou's been having and today's episode pretty much made Gou go one negative step further by pinching the prize despite not putting in much effort at all.

So no, not 'nuff said' on that matter.

I just noticed that the 5 Kalos Pokemon in that poster are the exact 5 Pokemon that Ash caught in Kalos. Coincidence? Intentional marketing? Or something else? Who knows.

Also, both Cofagrigus and Braviary appeared in episode 14.

They really want to emphasize that Mr. Mime is a part of Ash's team huh


If Gou has three Pokemon in his party, then it makes sense for Ash to also have three, in which case Mr. Mime is really the only Pokemon that they could throw in there.
On a side note, I really hope they port the Ga-Ole machines to SEA soon, Tretta is getting kinda old here.

That card makes me a bit unsure. Considering how crazy strong Golurk is I kind of hope it isn't getting lots of screen time unless it's power dropped after being caught like Max Raids in Sw/Sh--a newbie shouldn't just ninja-loot and get a Pokémon so much stronger than Ash's veterans.

I still think using Mimey instead of a Pokémon Ash trained and raised himself is silly but they seem committed to it.

hahahaha it would be so funny if Ash gets Mew (Or Mew chooses Ash) over Gou.
That would be hilarious, but it's really questionable writing for Ash to accomplish Gou's goal.

Yeah, Ash catching Mew instead of Gou is nigh impossible. That'd be like Gou somehow beating Leon before Ash does.

Want something that actually has a conceivable chance of happening and would cause an absolute shitstorm if it actually happens?

Gou catching Riolu instead of Ash.

I don't see Go taking Golurk outside the lab. He called it and Darmanitan the "Sakuragi Lab guardians".

I don't want anyone to get Riolu/Lucario, but I have no sympathy for fans who have drooled over the idea of Ash getting a Lucario since 2005. Get over yourselves.

I've never liked those fans either, because I've never really liked speculating what Pokémon a main character would catch based on personal opinion without evidence. Now, however, the evidence hints at a Riolu/Lucario joining the main cast, so I'm carefully optimistic towards that possibility now.

It's possible that Gengar is just this saga's equivalent of Jigglypuff from the OS.
Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. Of course people keep using the 'Ash needs a Ghost type!!!!1!' logic to try and justify Ash getting Gengar which I find hilarious because there are so many other Ghost types that Ash could get instead of the Cheshire Cat.
