Plus the way it was handled was horrible, leading everyone to think Deino would go with Iris because its trainer likely abandoned it, only for its crippled trainer to hobble in at the last moment. As if calling to say why he won't make it, didn't cross the trainer's mind at all. Making Deino and Iris go through that irrelevant bonding, just for it not really matter in the end.
But it's different with Froakie.
Ash wouldn't be doing all this if it was someone else's Froakie or it wasn't going to lead somewhere. The writers would never write it so it would look like this.
This is the same thing I argued about Sewaddle on Bulbagarden, and most people didn't care to believe me or agree with me.

Just like Ash jumping into the water to save Sewaddle.
The writers won't put those scenes in if it doesn't lead anywhere.
Ash caring about a Pokemon to such a degree, is the writers way of saying that there is a connection between Ash and said Pokemon.
Any other situation Ash would probably just carry the Pokemon while looking for someone to help, kind of like Cubchoo (though that could be because there was no Pokemon Center nearby) but it's not like they were worried about Cubchoo.
But look at how worried Ash is when looking at Froakie in his arms as he's likely carrying it to the Pokemon center. It would be written differently, and animated differently.
Would never happen that way if there wasn't a connection between the two.
Ash and Froakie was kind of a given. It's the best match between him and the Kalos starters. Especially since they'll likely have Serena be the starting trainer to take Fennekin. That leaves Chespin, which can be Ash's secondary starter.
Kanto : Charizard > Bulbasaur > Squirtle
Johto : Bayleef > Cyndaquil > Totodile (Gave it to Bayleef because she did get the evolution slot and swept a gym)
Hoenn : Sceptile
Sinnoh : Infernape > Torterra
Unova : Pignite > Oshawott > Snivy
Kalos : Froakie's Final > Quilladin
sounds fine for me.
Sun & Moon Wishlist
Ash's female Pokémon Poll
Tyrunt(I honestly couldn't see Ash getting a Tyrantrum)
Froakie is basically confirmed! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No Fennekin for ash . Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chespin . No comment
i'd like Fully evolved Froakie to have Hydro Pump and Bounce as moves. More so Bounce.
The anime where Stunfisks fly and Meowths talk. Where Oshawotts pop out of pokeballs and tranquills use wing attack. What more could you ask for, Oshawott evolving?. THE ANIME !

Ran into Dragonite in Pokemon Go and it fled :'(
There is one thing some need to learn from the writers, if you think something will happen, then they troll us. Look at the Palpitoad episode when everyone thought it was fake, and they troll us and tell us it is real. Anything can happen to these writers, even the switch-a-roo with starters.
Ilikepiex7 This is what I wrote in the other thread, I do not say who she got-
