Sure they could fully evolve Grookey under Ash. However I think a Rillaboom would fit Go more. Heck fully evolve all the new starters under Go.
I can't really see how Rillaboom would fit with Goh that much more with Ash. I'm not really sure if I could see him with an Inteleon either, but that might work more depending on what plans they have for Sobble down the road.

Grookey isn't just some monkey. It's one of the newest starter Pokemon and being one of the more marketable starters at the moment would give it more of an edge than say Ash bringing back Bulbasaur or Sceptile. I think that you're too focused on the number of starters Ash has when that has never really been an issue. A lot of fans like the starter Pokemon and would want to see their favorite one get more attention within the anime. Giving one to Ash is pretty solid way of giving that starter more attention and screentime in the anime. It obviously doesn't always work out well, but giving a starter to a iconic lead character isn't really a bad thing in itself.
I also have a hard time believing that Ash will use his reserves in Journeys. It isn't impossible by any means, but given their track record, I have an easier time believing that Ash will rely on his new captures for the PWC and he'll just end up catching more than the typical five or six Pokemon per series given how fast he got five Pokemon in Journeys.
