@vodor, Ash isn't going to have a competitive team "Smogon-like". And Ash isn't the most powerful trainer in the world like you pretend. And @vodor, I need to warn you that is possible that Zekrom is going to be catched by Ash at the end of Episode N. Please, don't say that Ash should keep Zekrom because we know that this isn't possible for storyline reasons.
Some things about the sets:
The Kids Set: Reshiram is the Reshiram that apears in the posters with N, Zekrom is the Zekrom of Episode 1 (that some of you hate for some reason) that will appear, Pikachu is Pikachu, Growlithe could be a acceptable capture of Cilan (better late than never), Meowth is our beloved Meowth, Typhlosion could be Ash's Quilava evolved but also could be Dawn but Piplup hasn't had much merch now. Gardevoir is clearly N's (see the ending) and Magnezone is going to be Colress' one (that also agrees with my theory of Achroma Tournament) and Arceus is a legendary that possibly isn't going to appear like Deoxys and Rayquaza are.
The other sets: It's anime related because the presence of two pokemon in it. But that they are really making an appareance is another history.
Two things about his sets:
-Ash's starters has terribily low chances of evolving. We can take Oshawott into the equation, but tit isn't like Snivy and Pignite are evolving either. Snivy isn't evolving because she is part of the marketing team (and we now that writers can't lose members of it) and Pignite has the risk that Bianca, unlike other rivals, can appear in the show again.
-Iris' Dragonite. Every freaking set has it. I think that's because Dragonite's unusual personality because I don't see Ash's Piakchu, Ash's Oshawott, Ash's charizard, Iris' Emolga.
Growlithe and Gardevoir are probably one of the Pokemon N had as a child.
Now, Typhlosion and Beedrill are very interesting. I really want those two to appear and have some decent screentime since I miss this two.
Magnezone is reall cool and I hope it will appear as well, and if it does, it will probably be Colress's.
Salamence and Arceus is very mysterious. Maybe Arceus is there because of the promotion in the Dream World.
Its body is covered with a pure white fur. The colder the weather, the more active it becomes.
Yeah Arceus is there for promotional reasons, I doubt he would pop up in the anime/movies anytime soon.
Yeah, pikachu, meowth, zekrom and reshiram are obvious. But, bar arceus, any of the others can be CotD pokemon or just N's "friends", wild pokemon that he can call when in danger (look to that alomomola in the upcomming episode). And I don't like the idea of have a salamence just for another "Iris' have powers to bond with any dragon" episode.
Give Growlithe to Cilan (T_T)!
Oh god iris is gonna get a salamence now.
I bet someone will think the Typloshion is Dawn's.
Lol @ the random Beedrill. Who cares about that Pokemon? :P
Typhlosion and Beedrill hmm, I wonder who has those. coughJimmycough

CYNDAQUIL IS FINALLY MINE <3 <3 <3 <3!!!!!Pokemon Y FC: 1693-2261-4948Friend Safari: Poison(Venomoth, Toxicroak, and Seviper)
Mewtwo and Red Genesect merch releasing on the same day? Come on this is just messing with me if it turns out to be nothing.
Typholsion looks really cool there, i'd love to say it's Ash's but Quilava will have been so short lived it'd be weird. Maybe if he gets at least three decent battles i'd settle for him evolving.
If Typhlosion really is Ash's i'm guessing the writers want Ash to have a fully evolved starter from each region meaning one of his Unova Starters will reach it's final evolution too, probably Emboar.
