I think Iwane would only get involved if it involves a finished script ready for animation, then I'm sure Iwane can mention how much he wants to be changed for convenience sakes.

I doubt it was because those pokemons were bad and Ash did want to use them.
It was the writers fault that the "Rotation System" failed in BW Saga in the first place, since they didn't want Ash's reserve pokemons to hog the precious on-screen time of Pikachu, Oshawott (and the other Starters) and Axew.
OK, let me tell my ideas for future captures. I'll start with the new characters:
1ş) Serena: I believe this girl will follow the examples of May and Dawn. I don't think they will use the Pokemon Contest again, but I wonder which will be her goal; because it can't be the same that Ash to enter the Kalos' League.
+ Fennekin: Her starter Pokemon, which I believe she will choose. The "possibly female" look of this Pokemon is a clear sign.
+ Scatterbug/Spewpa/Vivillon: Similar to May's Beautifly. I guess it also resembles Ash's Butterfree, but I don't believe he will capture another Butterfly Pokemon.
+ Meowstic: Similar to May's Skitty, it will also be a female. And just like Skitty, Meowth will have a crush on her; they even have similar names.
2ş) Clemont: We need more info about him to deduce his Pokemon, but I have the suspiction his Gym is of Normal Pokemon. Electric types that eclipse Pikachu?, I don't think. They can be "electric support", but never stronger than our star. So let's see the possibilities.
+ Bunnelby: Already confirmed by a scan. Honestly, I expected Bunnelby for Serena, mirroring Dawn's Buneary, but without the crush on Pikachu.
+ Furfrou: The only other Normal type we know until now. I'm not entirely convinced by it, but I guess a Dog Pokemon can be really useful.
* Aipom/Ambipom: An oldie but a possible goodie. Since Clemont use a device he calls the "Aipom's arm", why is he not going to have one of those Pokemon?
3ş) Bonnie: Just like Max, it's obvious this little girl is not older enough to have Pokemon yet; but that doesn't mean she can't make her big brother to catch some Pokemon for her to play. I believe she's going to be a fan of the new Fairy Type Pokemon.
+ Dedenne: By the scans, I think it's obvious that's oficially one of his brother's Pokemon. But considering how it appears playing with Bonnie in the scans, I guess we can consider it "unofficially" as her Pokemon.
4ş) Team Rocket: It's confirmed that Jessie's Wobbuffet is back, which clearly mean they are going to return to their old "clown roles". However, to make them silly but dangerous, I would like they would have all their Pokemon from the beginning; 5 Pokemon of Jessie (Wobbuffet, Seviper, Yanmega, Woobat and Frillish), 4 Pokemon of James (Carnivine, Mime Jr, Yamask and Amoongus) and, of course, Meowth. They would only need two new captures to have a full team.
+ Inkay/Malamar: A clear option because of its evilish look. The only problem is, evolved, it may be a Pokemon unworthily powerful for the trio. On the other hand, it may be like Seviper's case, it looks dangerous in the wild, but once it's captured, it's infected with the trio's foolishness.
+ Skrelp: I don't know, between all the other Pokemon seen until now, this is the only one I found suitable for the trio, besides Inkay/Malamar. It look slike an evil version of Misty's horsea.
* I really hope the rumours about the Trio capturin Pancham/Pangoro and Litleo will be false. These Pokemon are too cute unevolved and too cool evolved to fit with the trio Rocket, don't you think?
5ş) Ash: I hope a lot from Ash, considering the messes from Best Wishes. I'll talk about his new captures in Kalos.
+ Froakie: This capture seems confirmed by the new trailer. I just hope the old tradition of "not evolving the Water Types" will be broken in this case.
+ Chespin: Well, Ash always captures the Grass Starter of each region (Bulbasaur, Bayleef, Sceptile, Torterra and Snivy), so why is he not going to do it again?
+ Fletchling/Talonflame: His classic "Flying type for rookies" like all the other regions (Pidgeot, Noctowl, Swellow, Staraptor and Unfezant). The problem this time is that I find it a little uncomfortable being also a Fire type after evolving. It doesn't suit having the roles of Flying type and Fire type in Ash's team covered by the same Pokemon. However, it can turn like Ash having both Charizard and Pignite in the Decorola Islands; so I guess Ash can still have another Fire type. After all, isn't his name "Ash"?
+ Litleo/Pyroar: A male one it's the perfect choice to cover the role of Ash's Fire type in Kalos, especially once he evolves. (This is definetely a Pokemon they can't give to Team Rocket).
+ Pancham/Pangoro: Its combination Dark/Fighting suits very well for Ash. Besides, Ash tends to capture Pokemon with similar traits; just like Krookodile's Sunglasses mimic the ones of Squirtle. And Pancham/Pangoro's habit of having a leaf or a twig in its mouth makes me think a lot in Ash's Sceptile. Ash have to capture this Pokemon!! (I also hope this Pokemon won't end with the Trio Rockets, ot it will be a terrible loss).
+ Clauncher: This is another capture that I can't avoid to think that Ash will capture, considering his tradition of capturin Pokemon Crabs (Kingler and Corphish). I found it difficult if Froakie is going to be officially his Water Pokemon, but weirder thinks have already happened.
+ The Fossil Pokemon: I think it's about time for Ash to finally catch one of these Fossil Pokemon, since they are no longer so "rare" and we have seen some trainer with these kind of Pokemon. In Tesselia, Ash could have get a Tirtouga because he always captures the urtle Pokemon (Squirtle, Torkoal and Turtwig); but that was a missed opportunity. It would be cool for Ash to have a Dinosaur Pokemon in his team, and I think both of them are suitable; Tyrunt/Tyrantrum because of the violent fighting style, and Amaura/Aurorus because it makes think about Ash's Lapras. However, I believe the chances are more in Tyrunt/Tyrantrum's side, because if Ash captures one, it could be like a reference to Pokemon's Digital Twin Series, Digimon. Tyrunt/Tyrantrum are very similar to Agumon/Greymon, as both are based on a T-Rex, don't you think?
+ Finally, I believe Ash's should capture a Pokemon from a type he hasn't captured until now. He always do that in each new Generation. He captured a Ground type in Johto (Phanpy/Donphan), an Ice type in Hoenn (Glalie, in case Lapras doesn't count), a Dragon type in Sinnoh (Gible), two Dark types (Krookodile and Scraggy) and a Rock type (Boldore, in case Larvitar doesn't count) in Tesselia. So now, Ash should try to capture the remaining 3 types (Psychic, Ghost and Steel) and the new Fairy type; although this new type is so not Ash's style).
About Ash's bringing some of his old Pokemon to Kalos, these are the best candidates.
+ Charizard: Obviously, this guy will have to appear in this region to be able to become Mega Charizard. The most locical thing would be that Ash will take it with him to Kalos, along with Pikachu, but something tells me that wouldn't happen.
+ Bulbasaur and Squirtle: Since you will recieve a Kanto's Starter Pokemon in the game, I would like to see Ash bringing Bulbasaur and Squirtle with him, make them evolve, and then Mega Evolve. Clearly, Bulbasaur is way more possible than Squirtle, since our favourite turtle is with the Squirtle Squad; but after so many years, I wouldn't count of seeing these two evolving ever.
+ Sceptile: We have seen all three starters from Kanto having Mega Evolutions, and also Blaziken, which is one of Hoenn's Starters. So, if Blaziken is going to have an Mega Evolution, why wouldn't the other two starters from Hoenn? Considering this, Sceptile should have a Mega Evolution too; and if I'm right, then Ash could bring his Pokemon to make him Mega Evolve too.
+ Gible: Considering Garchomp also has a Mega Evolution, I guess the most logical thing would be Ash bringing his old Gible back, make him evolve to Gabita and then to Garchomp, and then finally get its Mega Evolution. It wouldn't have fun for Ash capturing a Garchomp, so bringing Gible back is way more acceptable.
+ All seasons allow Ash bringing back some of his old Pokemon and make them complete their "unfinished development". In Hoenn, Phanpy returned and evolved to Donphan. In Sinnoh, Cyndaquil evolved to Quilava and several of Ash's Pokemon get way better moves; especially Noctowl. Here in Tesselia, we haven't seen none of those; and Charizard's returned didn't actually show anything too cool. So I believe some of Ash's Pokemon should return and improve. I would choice Totodile evolving to Croconaw and Feraligator (by the Pokemon we saw in the 16th movie), Corphish evolving to Crawdaunt (giving Ash his third Dark type) and and Buizel evolving to Floatzel (since he's a traded Pokemon which grows faster than usual, he should have evolved long ago).
Finally, I believe Ash should be able to capture some Pokemon from previous generations, as he has done in the past. He captured a Beedrill and a Seaking in Johto, an Aipom in Hoenn and a Gligar in Sinnoh. I believe this is Pokemon's way to keep its story save from being "forgotten". These are the best candidates for that:
+ Sableye: Considering the increasing popularity of this Pokemon after the 16th movie, I think it's a potential possibility. Besides, in Hoenn, Ash could have perfectly capture this Pokemon the first time the saw it in the sixth season. Maybe it will have an new evolution in this Generation.
+ Riolu/Lucario: They are really making impossible for Ash to capture a Pokemon he should definetely have, considering Ash's connection with the Aura.
+ Absol: Another Pokemon I believe Ash should have captured in Hoenn. It's new Mega Evolution rocks, so I think Ash could capture an Absol too.
Well, what do you think of all this?
It seems to be a studio policy, Pokemon and Level 5 are doing tons of money rigth now for their respective companies I doubt the budget for the anime went down that much for them to start doing this and maybe calling them lazy is me overdoing it but atleast if its their bosses "orders" its a pretty shitty situation as far as I'm concerned.
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 !
75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature. (Started by SkittyLover77)
The crew - Shun the Greninja , Wing the Talonflame , Tank the Gogoat , Ragequit the Tyrantum , Joules the Heliolisk & Melody the Sylveon.
Greninja all the way
Alolan Krabby & Kingler
(Krabby) Strong currents carried it from Kanto to the Alolan shore and a territorial fight with Crabrawler was born. Unable to beat them due to Krabby’s small size, they retreated into the sand and became nocturnal creatures. Eventually, they developed Ghost-type abilities which made them immune to Fighting-type moves.
(Kingler) Due to their newfound Ghost-typing, Krabby lose their arms in the process of evolution. New spiritual power allows them to make their claws hover around them using some kind of ghostly tether. It is typically found in beaches with very little to no humans. It has a good relationship with Palossand to help each other protect their shared territory.
I think that Ash will catch 8 Kalos Pokemon this time around.
Confirmed New Pokémon:
Magearna, Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Solgaleo, Lunala, Yungoos, Pikipek, Grubbin, Rockruff, Komala, Tapu Koko, Charjabug, Vikavolt, Drampa, Bruxish, Cutiefly, Togedemaru, Salandit, Bewear, Mimikyu, Bounsweet, Wimpod, Mudsdale, Comfey, Oricorio, Minior, Gumshoos, Fomantis, Lurantis, Mudbray, Wishiwashi, Morelull, Pyukumuku, Turtonator, Crabrawler, Sandygast, Palossand, Stufful, Type: Null, Jamgmo-o
Yay my hopes for Satoshi getting the 3 starters is back, since Serena has Fletchling but regardless of that she was at the lab so I think she was choosing a starter anway(hoping thats not the case but seems to be what makes more sense).
Based on the new trailer my speculation shall be...
(maybe building fire team?)
- Both Squids, Jessie the big one and James the smaller one
