We're going to run out of roman numerals one of these days, but today is not that day. Also, not an actual arena. Please do not don your gladiator uniforms.
This thread is for team speculation for the main cast(including Ash, Iris, Cilan, their rivals, and Team Rocket), recurring characters, and important characters in general. You can speculate what Pokemon they're going to catch, release, or give away, and what their teams will be by the end of Unova. This is also the place to speculate about which Pokemon will evolve.
This is not a thread to speculate about the one or two Pokemon a generic character of the day will have, because a)that's usually fairly obvious anyway, and b)nobody will ever care about that character again once their episode has passed. Keep this kind of thing in the appropriate episode speculation thread.
-Your opinions are not facts. Acting like they are and then getting mad when people disagree with you will not be looked upon favorably. Remember this is all speculation, so although some things may seem very, very obvious to you or to certain other people, there will always be room to disagree(until specific captures and evolutions are confirmed, anyway).
-All SPPf rules apply. Forgetting that and starting flamewars over whose completely unfounded speculation is the best, making no-content posts, etc. is an excellent way to rack up some infraction points.
-Of course, you wouldn't be posting completely unfounded capture speculation anyway - you have to post reasons for your speculations. I'll admit that this rule gets forgotten a lot, but for the sake of keeping discussion at least semi-intelligent, always try to include reasons along with your speculations.
-If you see people dragging this thread into a long, tiresome, flame-engulfed argument between themselves, please either report the posts in question or contact me and/or Sushi and/or Encylopika directly.
-This really isn't the place to argue about how much longer Unova will go on for. Such discussions rarely go well in the first place, but at least keep them out of this thread.
-See that forum directory at the top of the page? "Serebii.Net Forums > Anime & Manga > Pokémon Anime Discussion > Anime Spoilers"? Yeah, that. This is the Spoilers forum, and you should consider everyone's current teams in Japan when posting speculation. If you only know the current dub teams, don't post here.
-tl;dr: Keep things civil. Think before you post. Now go forth and make many posts about teams.
