They better use the girl in some way. I've wanted her to be a newbie to gyms since the beginning of this thread, but now that we see her art, I wouldn't mind having her be a cocky rival for Ash. I could so see her have a Fennekin and a Yancham.
I know most of you guys hate the regional birds given to Ash, but Yayakoma has a lot of potential already. I can see it being a hyperactive sort of Pokemon that screams/sings a lot and is pretty speedy, which fits Ash. Flame Charge is a fresh move for a bird and blessing after Unfezant's stagnant movepool.
