I wouldn't say that Sirfetch'd debuting in the next 4(?) months is boring, or Ash most likely getting another Pokemon (not Grookey, but maybe an old reserve).

Please keep Chloe away from the stereotypically feminine Pokemon, unless it's Jiggylpuff. Galarian Ponyta does fit her aesthetically, though.

Tyranitar and Greninja pop up again.
Dunno what to make of all the Galarian starters being fully evolved though.

Pretty sure this doesn't have anything to do with the anime in terms of merchandise. Its just a listing of popular Pokemon and current generation starters, because where are Dragonite and Galarfetch'd.

That lacks the anime logo and I wouldn't be surprised to discover it's fake, as it looks amateurish and I've found no Japanese source or a full version.

I like Jigglypuff and want it to stick around and not just be a troublemaker. It has some anime-related merchandise coming up, by the way.

Why no other feminine Pokemon? I just think they're kind of boring choices for a girl at this point. If Eevee, which isn't really feminine but the anime associated it with four different girls (Sakura being the first), doesn't go to Ash or Go, I'll be disappointed.

Yes to Jigglypuff and to Galarian Ponyta, no to the others. That's my final verdict.

That’s probably a matter of personal biases so let’s agree to disagree.

I’ll take literally any Pokemon other than Jigglypuff (feminine or otherwise). It’s feminine and overexposed .Some other Pokemon could use the limelight, jigglypuff has had enough. It isn’t a particularly interesting choice for a female companion.

———-

It’ll probably never happen but I hope they might throw a curveball and give her a ridiculously non-feminine Pokemon. Or gender neutral. I thought of Toxel for some reason.

Are we going to make predictions out of posters again?

Jokes aside I'm glad that Mimikyu is here but the Pokemon that appear in this image are also featured in the official Popular Pokemon of the Year ranking. (And yes before you ask Chandelure and Tyranytar are in that list).

Koharu catching THE Jigglypuff would be quite an interesting development. If I recall it was teased that it went back to Kanto on Ash's plane in the SM finale. Nothing about Jigglypuff's personality really seems to scream "Koharu" to me, but it would be kind of amazing for one of the most notorious wild Pokemon in the series to finally be captured. They had the balls to have Ash battle with Mimey after 20+ years so it could certainly happen.

I’m not sure since Mimey was actually in Ash's family, Jigglypuff just seems like the type of Pokémon they’d use not captured by anyone else like Meowth.

Goh also has a poliwag I think. We can get Politoed.
Most likely scenario Go trades one of his dustox for a beautifly.
My preferred scenario? Ash trades one of his Tauros for Go's scyther. Though to be honest I rather see that Golurk in the hands of Ash...

*sigh*

Why do people insist that Ash should trade his 30 Tauros?
Better yet why is it one of the most popular things in fanfic aside from the Arceus awful 'Betrayed' fics, harems, strong/aura/ultra-smart Ash stuff?!

Must I point out the episode where Wobbuffett joined the cast? People were actually trying to trade for his Tauros and Ash refused, he loves all of his Pokemon. He only gave up Aipom because she'd be happier with Dawn and Buizel was literally made for him. He'd only trade if he literally caught something and a trainer or Goh offered to trade for it, that is the only way I can see Ash accepting a trade

I doubt Ash is going to trade. If it's a main character rather than COTD it will probably be Gou.

I've always wondered what that concept even means, and I'm not even sure if I want to know.
There's an oddly prominent genre of fanfic about Ash being betrayed by all his friends (and occasionally even his Pokémon), then becomes a dark and gritty anti-hero who seeks revenge as an OP super trainer. I've never read more than a tiny excerpt out of morbid curiosity, but you see them pop up on the sites. At least one apparently has his companions murder his mom and frame him for it. I think Pikachu dies pretty often in them as well.
