How about the the potential that the young man mentioned in the summary could be Zeranora's Trainer and, thus, could potentially take part in the Alola League and possibly (likely) be the Dream Killer for the Alola League?
Well, since Sceptile is the only one of Ash's Pokemon ever to successfully take down a mythical Pokemon during a league, I hope Ash is smart and recalls him back to his team.

That really would be a cheap path forward for the show producers.

The Sun & Moon openings have been pretty consistently showing off only Legendary and Mythical Pokémon if they play any sort of notable role in the series.
Isn’t Zeraora the first mythical in an SM opening?
The Nebby family and Necrozma were obviously in for larger roles since the movies don’t cover them.

I can say this with almost full certainty that any older Pokémon called on will be a Kanto one.

I think it’s too early to reach a conclusion. I’m leaning towards it being a one off, but it can be a multiple episode thing like Lugia and it’s child’s arc too.

I'm already getting ready for the Alola League meltdowns if this guy is our new Tobias

Ladies and gentleman, we could potentially have our next Tobias.

The problem with Tobias was that he was introduced out of nowhere. Having good buildup lessens the impact, like it did with Alain, for example.

If Zeraora does get used in the league, hopefully Ash will have the sense to bring Donphan, Krookodile, Gible or Gliscor to the battle

Hopefully the latter. We could REALLY use another storyline again about now.

Hell, Tobias didn't even have any dialogue outside of giving commands...:confused:
A trainer with a Legendary and Mythical to defeat Ash at his best? Fine.(y) Making the trainer a shallow stiff? Not fine.(n) I actually liked the battle, but hated the character.

Though I don't know about that last part...a lot of people STILL hated how things went with Alain. Not to mention how Cameron had build up...and I think it might've made things worse...:cautious:

This guy indeed looks like he could be Zeraora's Trainer...

I know a lot of people hated Ash losing to Alain. But that was partially because some people were overhyped about Ash's chance of winning and focused their hatred of the loss onto Alain. There would've been much more hatred towards him of he wasn't already an established character by this point with a fleshed-out and well-written backstory.

As for Cameron, he wasn't even any kind of OP to begin with. They honestly should've used Virgil as the rival who beat Ash. That way, not only would've Ash lost to someone actually competent, but his League ranking wouldn't have regressed compared to the previous one.

Tobias debuted in the Sinnoh league... SINNOH REMAKES 2019 CONFIRMED
@PkmnTrainerV
Don't get hype so early. Otherwise, you're going to disappointed afterwards.

Oh interesting. But lol even this looks comedy. Cant they make one episode without puns or jokes?
@PetitEevee
There's won't be any comedy and humor especially the Pokémon league around the corner. Nevertheless, Ash is already being fixed to lose in the League after this episode comes out, which there's is literally no way. He's can beat a mythical pokémon.

Tobias's Darkrai would beg to differ...

edit: OK, I've got it.

I didn't know that Tobias has a brother.

Ash meets a mythical Pokemon and he has to play with its tail? I hope Zeraora electrocutes him for it.
