I don't think that this would mean that Gou would have to give Raboot away to Ash just to satisfy it's desire to battle.
I didn't say anything about that though. Did I say something like "Raboot will go to Ash"?

No, it's something that might end up happening if Gou cannot satisfy Raboot's desire to battle.

Looks like Ash finally is gonna get the Lucario people have wanted him to have for so long. I really hope we get to spend a good amount of time with it though as a Riolu. Riolu is among the cutest Pokemon out there, so I hope we get to see Riolu for a decent amount of time.

Whilst I've always wanted Ash to get a Lucario, I have to say I feel they left it too late

Two of the best times Ash could have gotten Lucario was either in Sinnoh or Kalos, it just feels a bit random now of all times

If Ash does indeed get a starter, it will probably never evolve or evolve very late into the Series. Most likely because of how delayed Sobble & Grookey will debut. I remember in the past there used to be this debate among fans on how to balance the three starters screentime even if one gets more over the other ex: Greninja. Which is why plenty of fans prefered the method of AG & XY by giving out three starters to three companions. However it's pretty much confirmed the Scorbunny Line is the one that will have the most this Generation regardless of anything.

Considering how much soccer themed Raboot's attack is, most likely it will evolve.

Logic probably dictates that the opposite be true to showcase the fully evolved forms.
This line of logic has already been thrown out with Scorbunny being the fastest evolving starter on the main cast, so all "patterns" and "balancing" mean nothing now.

As shown by BW, they can easily have rivals showcase the fully evolved starters.

I expect Ash is gonna have a fully evolved party (sans Pikachu) by the end like in XY, including whichever starter he (probably) gets; they've been having him capture fully evolved things, we've seen enough Lucario that I think Riolu is going to evolve fast, too, and the World Championship should have a very high level of competition.

So much potential to evolve those damn reserves. Looking at you gible... and buizel... and quilava... and totodile... oh so many of them... like so so many!

Looking at the preview for SS020, I reckon Go will catch a Pidgey, Oddish and the two Nidoran

Would be good as that means we may see Nidorino for the first time in ages

Apparently, there's a leak/rumor going around that Ash will receive the Egg from Cynthia.
If this turns out to be true, I honestly wouldn't be surprised. Lucario is a Sinnoh Pokémon, and Cynthia has one in the games too, so it wouldn't be a stretch if she had one in the anime and it produced an Egg.

I don't know if they would bring Cynthia back just so that she could give Ash a Riolu egg.
Yeah I mean it'd be cool foreshadowing for a future Ash versus Cynthia match if she meets up with him now and gives him an egg containing a Pokemon that he might use against her later... but at the same time any Cotd could hand Ash the egg in her place.

And whats the point in them researching Mega Evolution when Ash can just call Misty and Brock to tell Sakuragi everything.

Pokémon Go darmination doesn’t have update on its profile it appeared in ep 17 being bully Pokémon to Scorbunny

Well i'm between Riolu and Sobble obviously.

But I dont know and egg born pokémon with the exception of Togepi and maybe Shiron is a kinda lazy way to give Ash a Pokémon ,specially in a series that suposedly takes places arround the world.

One good thing about this is that Pokémon since he/she is a baby he will get a little bit of development.

Also BTW Dragonite has done a lot of things recently huh ;)
It’s not a munclax that be awful idea of writers because ash has Snorlax
It be funny to be Tyrgou the pre evolved fighter Pokémon to fit for catching Kanto Pokémon he did try to catch Hitmolie when we say good bye to Ash primeape
