Well Scorbunny is long gone so... I guess Sobble won't have much competition in the first stage department?

The REAL question here is... Can the Anime save Grookey from being the least Popular?
The fact that it has yet to appear is a travesty. It may end up being Hau all over again.

Are we sure this is new though? Even on older posters in this series when we visit a certain region, we see gen 8 starters.
Yeah. This might be for XY.
Did you two miss the logo at the top left? Kalos' first episode in this series was quite recent.

I wouldn't put much stock in the Kalos merch. It is part of a series of bandai "mascot" mons from each region. They released the Unova one (which was number 13 in the series with Kalos being 14) a few months ago and none of them showed up when the boys went to Unova.

Wow, really surprised but pleased that Ash caught the Galarian Farfetch'd instead of Goh.

With any luck, this means Ash will get Sirfetch'd in the future.

Really hope he catches Sobble in the next episode two, it would be wasted on Goh

What kind of companions will he gain on his further adventures?!
"Messon Sobs for What Reason"
Satoshi met the crybaby Messon in the Galar region. (can't fully make out this line, but it's something about it being scared by something). Don't miss this episode!!
