There is a thread for ASh and one for companions/rivals but no one for the TRio. So assuming they are in XY anime which pokemon will they catch?

I feel like they should be carrying their DP Pokémon, if only because their exits were completely abrupt and unexpected, and not in a funny way like Lickitung or anyone. :x

I do wonder what they're going to do now that they both own 4-5 Pokémon each. I guess they could either start over again, or just use their Unova Pokes and continue to ignore their DP ones.

Also, if they're going to be like they were pre-BW, I think we can expect Pokémon along the lines of Wobbuffet and Mime Jr again where they're there to be funny and/or cute rather than be experts at fighting.

I couldn't care less what happens to their Unova Pokemon to be perfectly honest and the only one of their older Pokemon I'd like to see again is Wobbuffet just because it was fun and practically an honorary fourth member of the team. Out of the new Pokemon revealed so far, I can't really see them fitting with Jessie or James. I could see them getting a couple of Poison type Pokemon again for some reason, especially if they continue to be more like their pre-BW selves.

I actually like Amoonguss. But that may just be the species itself. They don't really have any personality. Some of that is down to screen time, but they really seemed to have zombified TR as a whole for most of BW.

I'd like Amoonguss to either develop a personality and begin stun sporing James with affection, or James should get a new grass or grass/poison type that continues the tradition. Funny how after all this "new and fresh" stuff BW tried, I'm eager to see the silly stuff again. Guess BW writers are just that bad.

Personally, I feel like they should leave all their Pokemon at TRHQ, excluding Mime Jr. and Wobbufett.

When they returned with Frillish and Amoonguss, it was an absolute waste. They should have returned with their old Pokemon. The only reason they didn't take them to Unova in the first place was because they would have stood out with the Unova Pokemon. But when they returned there were Kanto Pokemon in eastern Unova. I see no good reason why they shouldn't have returned with their old Pokemon. Their BW Pokemon have absolutely no personality and frankly, their boring.

For XY, the only Pokemon I can see them catching at this point is Skrelp, but I hope that Jessie and James' captures are limited too one, and if not one, than none.

I'm hoping Wobbuffet comes back. I really miss it and if they're still willing to show it in shorts and Kalos has no restriction when it comes to old gen pokemon, I think at the very least Wobbuffet should come back.

I also miss Jessie with Seviper. I'm just so used to seeing it that I wouldn't mind if Seviper came back either. At the same time though, TR should probably just stick to one regional pokemon, Meowth, and Wobbuffet.

Manene was useless most of the time, but his interaction with Kojiro was cute. Wouldn't mind seeing him return.

Either way, I just hope their pokemon have more personality than their BW ones which were only tools all the time.
You'd think they'd be treated better with the way Kojiro got Desumasu and all but I guess it didn't matter.

I hope they bring back Mime Jr. (or this Kalos's equivalent) and Wobuffett .

I hope Cacnea returns too James. I loved the episode when James sent him to train with Gardenia. And I also want Wobuffet back. But I can see James with a Skrelp.

I hope they continue doing what they did before BW and keep only their current Pokémon to take to Kalos. I don't see them with any of the Pokémon revealed so far, but I assume Jessie will catch a poison-type and James, a grass-type.

I think they could either take their Unova Pokemon or start fresh. I could see the return of Wobbufett, and maybe Mime Jr., either way.

If Kalos has some kind of Poison Snake Pokemon, I would think Jessie would catch it. And James will probably continue with the Grass types.

It's a bit difficult to speculate right now, because we only know a small handful of the Gen VI pokemon. I agree that Skrelp seems like the most obvious possibility, of the ones we actually do know.

Of their older pokemon, Wobbuffet is honestly the only one who I currently feel has any kind of chance of coming back, if only because of his continuing presence in the Pikachu shorts (the Meloetta shorts were special anniversary ones with a "reunion" vibe, so those weren't too surprising, but it's interesting that he'll apparently feature in the Eevee short too - I think the writers do enjoy using him as Meowth's sidekick in those things). Even then, I remain a bit doubtful as to whether we'll actually ever see him on the main cast again.

I can see them with a Skrelp but other than that, I'm not really sure. We haven't seen a lot of new Poison types yet and I seriously doubt they'd catch a Fletchling or a Gogoat. I would love to see Wobbuffet come or maybe Chimecho or Mime Jr. but we'll have to see on those fronts.

With the announcement of Spritzee, I can see James picking up one in the Kalos region. It reminds me of Yamask in that it's cute but morbid. If it can learn Smoke Screen or the like, it would be beneficial to have one.

I'm not sure about any carrying over from the Unova region. I never quite liked Amoongus or Frillish. Jessie keeping her Woobat would be cool, though.

Wobbuffet should return if TR are going back to comedy. Seriously the unova pokes can get lost they had no back story no personalities or anything.

I agree with you the pokemon cute but some sinister correspond perfectly with the personality of Kojiro (Koji is a little bit sinister but not morbid XD) but physically this pokemon would be more matching with Musashi.

I hope highly their DP pokémon are mentioned because we must be sure that they are not forgotten...

(I can not wait to finish with BW)

As long as we get Wobbuffet back I'm happy. An overly affectionate grass type would be great too!

By looking at their type affinities we may see some of what they might catch.

For Example...

James is a Grass & Poison specialist, mainly aiming towards grass. If that tree Pokémon rumor thing is true, that could be a Pokémon for James. Which if you brought back Cacnea would give him a full team.

Jessie isn't really a specialist, but she does have a tendency to catch one of the following four; Poison, Bug, Psychic, or Water. Though she does catch more Poison than the others. Due to this I could definitely see her catching a Skrelp... or Inkay though I'd rather see Ash catch that one. With that one addition it would give her a full team.

What I've never understood... If Mewtwo can have his own Pokémon... why can't Meowth?

I don't know why, but I can see them with a Spritzee/Swirlix. Probably James, because he is usually the one with the cute Pokemon. I can also see them obtaining an Oorotto and a Skrelp. They will probably get some other sort of Pokemon that's introduced later, but these seem the most plausible out of the ones we've seen so far. Possibly a Malamar as well.

Just as long as Wobuffet stays the *bleep* out of it!
