    If there is indeed a new Eeveelution on the way, then i guess Virgil could debut it.

    The way I see it, he was pretty redundant. I mean there was a lot of hype around his introduction, but he wasn't one of Ash's opponents at the League. The only thing that I liked about him is that he won all his battles fairly and that he beat Cameron. But apart from that, he was a pretty useless character. I wish I could've gotten to know him more though. :x

    hmm, that's a pretty good point. Anyway, I can't wait to see how the eeveloutions pull off winning the unova leauge, that'll be awesome. Ash's battle with cameron looks cool too!
    I have 2 Friend codes I use about equally. One is 4055-3723-1345 and the other is 0576 3520 6954. I'll try to mention which one to look for when needed, if I don't then ask.

    I try to train pokemon with the best natures and IVs, but generally don't breed for IVs and occasionally use a pokemon that could have a better nature out of laziness (on the other hand I have reset or recaught the same species 20+ times to get the best nature and decent IVs sometimes). I somewhat do EV training, but don't calculate it out so it's perfect, just rely on the chart in the super training thing.

    Virgil could still return as the sage isn't over and they are still in the same reason. Virgil likely stays in Unova due to his Rescue Team being stationed there. So we may see him again.
    Alolan Krabby & Kingler

    Water/Ghost

    (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.

    If he encounters N, I'd hope N has his Eevee squad defect from him.

    Now I know why we never knew alot about Tobias before he crushed Ash out of the Sinnoh league. I wished we would have knowned little about Virgil, then maybe he could have battles him ands promote at the same time.

    They were pretty clear with their intentions with Virgil from the start, the whole Eevee aren't worthy of winning a leauge dumb arguments were the only stupid thing in the whole situation.

    To market Eeveelutions. It seems that was his only purpose, sadly...

    Why? that is all i can say... Why would you introduce a rival that never gets battled? did he even battle another main rival? He may as well not have been introduced, he could have been just another character. they only introduced him to sell eeveelution merchandise.
    Under construction...

    Virgil's entire existence besides advertising Eevee is to pulverize shonen kids from achieving their dreams. That's pretty satisfying.

    He came to show us Eevee, and ended up doing more than what was actually necessary of him. He exists for promotion, and nothing more.

    Many people thought he'd be the last minute roadblock that defeated Ash in the league, ala Tyson...since many predicted Kotetsu was more of a Morrison. Turns out Ash didn't even battle him.

    Maybe he'll appear during Episode N to help out, his little rescue team could prove useful.
