I hope Go does use Scyther on his main team if he does, I think most of his Pokemon bar a select few will be sent to Sakuragi Institute

What's with the Scyther hate? Tracey's was only around for 20 episodes, and let's just that it was only the focus in its debut. This was 20 years ago, too.

As a species, the Scyther line is one of the only three Bug ones that learn False Swipe naturally. I don't know if the writers want to use it as a catching strategy, but that would make sense.

According to Bulbapedia we've only seen if we've seen False Swipe once, when a Johto COTD tried told his Pokémon to defeat Ash's Heracross with it.
Shocking he lost the battle despite being the Pokémon Sun Tzu. His portrayal and attitude throughout the episode made it funnier.

The anime always seems to just let people capture fainted Pokémon so I'm not sure what they'd do with a game-accurate False Swipe.

I'm hoping they explain that fainting is bad.

Oh yeah, a Scyther with False Swipe would be great with Go's plan to catch every Pokemon

I don't dislike Scyther, its a Pokemon I would like to see get some focus

I’m not really going to be fond of the arrangement if Go will just capture lots of Pokémon only for them to rot at the lab. Pokemon Go mechanics don’t really translate well to the anime where Pokémon are living sentient brings.
We still don't know if he catch them permanently or just temporarily.
Koharu should look after Go's captures and be their mommy.
Just like most of the other fathers in pokémon franchise.

It doesn’t sit well with me that Go has supposedly caught 12 Pokemon by episode 6... are his Pokémon going to get any kind of focus? Is he going to catch- for example- Caterpie, Metapod and Butterfree seperatly?

I suspect Gou might get a few Pokémon other than Scorbunny that get attention (maybe Scyther because I think it's got some appearances on promotionals/merchandise) but most of his captures are going to be like Ash's other twenty nine Tauros.

? If its the Bug Catching Contest wouldn't he just keep the last pokemon? Even if he does end up with a Caterpie or something its probably still going to be something.

Go will probalby only keep that Scyther that appeared on the poster and the rest of the bug mons will be send to Sakuragi's lab.

Just realized that this episode features an anime exclusive location in the form of Vermillion Forest

Was half thinking this might be set in Veridian Forest

We got a summary:
Now that he has got Hibanny, Go heads to Kuchiba Forest with Satoshi and the others, aiming to get even more Pokémon!!
Looks like the guesses about this involving the Bug Catching Contest were off.

I did doubt the bug catching competition would take place here, would have been nice though

Go is just showing what Ash should be doing

Catching lots of Pokémon only to put them in a lab? And crush them for candies maybe?
Actually, it would be a nice reference to GO if Sakuragi gave Gou a bundle of candies at the end of the day.

Nice... or horrific?

At this point almost everything is a reference to Pokémon Go (looks at name of co-protagonist)...
