Okay rebuttal time.

Which brings me to my next point.
2. Bianca is a mess. She can't do anything right and right now she is trying to serve as a professor's assistant (and you have to be pretty darn smart to be an intern, especially at her age). Bianca makes mistakes after mistakes and at times she is just full of stress and desperation that she can't clear her mind. That's when Musha comes in to eat her dreams and clear her mind. In that scenario, Musha would fit Bianca perfectly. Even if Bianca is not a main character, she still serves a (somewhat) crucial role and she is most likely going to make further appearances. Even if it's just a few scenes, Musha floating by her and doing its job is enough to show to the audience.
3. There were several instances where a character's Pokemon in the games affected his party in the manga. Red and Blue's party in the GSC chapter mirrored their game counterpart's teams. Bianca has a Chandelure in the games, which gave her Litwick in the manga. Cheren has an Unfezant in the games, so he has a Tranquill right now. Hugh has a Flygon, Unfezant and Eelektross in the games which mirrors his Trapinch, Pidove and Tynamo in the manga. And maybe Kusaka didn't have her own a Munna at that time because he was waiting for the right time for Bianca to own a Munna? If Kusaka intends for Bianca to own a Munna at some point, then it probably would be Musha. Unless Black and Musha were never meant to be, I don't see how Musha's betrayal could contribute to the overall plot. In Ruby and Mimi's case, Ruby had to be taught a lesson at the time. There are not any lessons to be learned in Black's case here (except maybe arrogance but then again Red was just as "arrogant" as Black is) and it doesn't look like Black will be able to concoct any dreams for Musha to eat in the future so I don't see it coming back to him. If he does, then what was the point of the betrayal anyway. White's Tepig probably will never come back to her so Musha will probably find a new trainer who has good dreams. If that does happen, then the most likely candidate would be Bianca, the way I see it.
EDIT: Okay and one more thing I noticed about Musha. If the only point that convinces him to leave his trainer is because he doesn't have good food for him anymore, then he's probably not very bright. I mean, looking at previous instances, Mimi left its trainer because he insulted her and White's Tepig (dammit I can't remember her nickname) left her trainer because she saw someone else who could bring out her full potential. Musha...cuz it's trainer doesn't have yummy food for it anymore? Yes, I have to come to the conclusion that he's an airhead. Bianca's an airhead. Perfect match.
