    I think at this point either palpitoad or scraggy will evolve by the end of best wishes 2, most likely in either one final small tournament, or in some typical inspirational episode where they see their future evolution do something.

    I think that the XY series will start in Japan some weeks before the games are released in Japan. And the post-N saga will last less than it's expected because:



    After Episode N ends, there isn't too much to do to promote the actual series on Best Wishes with the exception of the farewells of Iris and Cilan* , the resolution of thei rivalries of Burgundy and Georgia and how Ash will transport his reserves to Kanto. This is different than ha in Sinnoh where we have 8 months where we have a Grand Festival, a Gym Battle, a Pokemon league and the departures in 20 episodes.
    *If he leaves.

    The question is:
    What could happen in the last episodes before XY starts?

    First, I think that the events of the movie is happening just after the N's Climax. The "anime movie teaser" won't air too soon if the movie isn't happening in the canon until July. This could be one of the consequences of the international release. (There will be events attacked to the film (I know Nintendo) and the events need to be out before XY is in the US). The US could see the movie in August.

    1- A Chroniches style season (in Best Wishes time slot). For one time, I see this happening, but there will be Ash's episodes between them. But with various things: there will have anything that a normal episodes has in timing (opening?, ending?, dare- da, Live Caster/movie promotion, ...). It could feature the older main character oif the show (Mainly), specially who left later in the show, the BW Rivals, Paul and Team Rocket (Mainly).

    1B- A Dawn's miniseries. I see them doing a series of Dawn's episode to spacer thing up until Pokemon XY. I personally take caution if she somehows gets a Gen VI pokemon to her because that means that Dawn is doing Gen VI promotion. And I aren'0t sure that the writers intentions of a character with Piplup (and his merch) in it. It could be in kanto and feature Brock and May?
    Also, Ash's episodes.

    2. A PWT Tournament. It will be 3vs3, of the main cast only Ash will take part of it, Ash will use the reserves, and the rivals will be CotD and Ash's rivals. Ash can win a tournament in Best Wishes and many people would stop complaining about Ash being a loser. And episodes for Iris and Cilan (I predict only 1 Cilan's episode, thanks Season 2)

    3. Other things who I don0t have the idea. Like the Benga showdown, for example.

    Iris isn't really getting all that much development, Dragonite is. I'm still not seeign Axew and Emonga being used at all. And for all we know, Excadrill won't be used unless it's something major, so it's really kind of weird when you think about it.

    An entire tournament devoted to Ash's Palpitoad? No thanks. I'm not here for another tournament, especially not one that would only serve to glorify another one of Ash's Pokemon. Also, Ash winning the tournament wouldn't really make up for all his previous losses in BW in my opinion. I know people have been looking forward to seeing Ash win a big tournament, but at this point I personally can't be bothered to care about Ash's progress or lack thereof. :x
    I agree that this wouldn't work. But what about what happened in the clubplosion? Scraggy was being used all the time, so was Excadrill and some others. Mabe if they do a Don tornament with water, then maybe it could work. But just like you said, that would be boring.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Yeah a one Pokemon only tourney wouldn't work for a final tournament. Unless they used some main character like Poke like Pikachu or Charizard. But I wouldn't like that. We need a lot of variety and showing from Ash and more than 1 vs 1's.

    In my opinion, I'd love to see a Senior Cup arc at Black City... I'd love to see Ash's Charizard defeating Tobias' Latios in the finals, but I guess I'd better not said this.

    I kinda have a feeling (not saying it will since it is a long shot) but that they will just start X and Y early in Japan at least so by October it would reach the USA. I would have no issue with them doing this but part of me feels we might get ash going to Kanto and end up getting Kanto based eps filler or canon. I would not mind an arc where Ash does things around Kanto but it is really him and not a group. I mean he could visit and help out past friends since BW has felt so much like Kanto it would be cool to see some old school people like AJ and Giselle and heck even the Samurai guy with the Marowack. Either those things would be fine with me

    I don't want Dragonite or Charizard hogging up the final tournament either. I want his other Unova shafted pokemon to get the wins. Make Georgia be able to beat Iris for once so that she can train and make Cilan rethink his training so that he can go somewhere else. Anything is better than what happened in the Junior tournament. Hopefully they'll give the character variable pokemon to use.

    I reply your poist from the XY thread because it is BW.

    Three things:
    Piplup has sscheduled merchandise for May and July in "important" sets, one related to I love Eevee and the other with movie pokemon.
    There's another collection for September with Croagunk on it. The first pokemon that I expect in a Brock's cameo is Croagunk.
    Lucario still has merchandise.
    The movie appears to be in Unova dn not on delayed timeline because somebody is probaly catching Sableye.

    If there's a tournament, it could be:


    PWT Option A: Older and Current Gym Leaders. And I see in it Brock and although I don't hold my breath, Misty.

    PWT Option B: Ash's Rivals* witht he exception of Virgil (whose name in English is the same) because he's already Champion.

    A mix of the two: The best option.*
    *I laugh if Paul and Bianca are in the same place in those episodes. Because the probaulityin my opinion it would is Bianca > Cameron > Paul > Trip > Gary > Stephan Barry.

    A normal tournament like the Don Tournaments.

    A Pokemon Contest during three episodes: The 1st problem is thinking that Dawn won't be on it is almost impossible. Not to only that, But May CAN return. And if the two happens at the time, I dont see Ash taking part of it.

    Yeah, we have older character OR current rivals IF there's a tournament at the end.

    And if Ash takes part of it, expect Charizard/Lizardon winning here.

    We know that the movie won't take place un til Sableye is captured. Difficult to Ash leave Unova before July.

    Although it's possible to debut XY before the games come out, it won't be until late-August at the earliest.

    Another thing is Gen VI promotion. And this could start as soon as CoroCoro reveals anything in March or April. I'm honestly surprised if a Gen VIO pokemon hasn't appeared in BW.

    I'm just thinking it might be just be a tournament like some people already mentioned. Maybe with older characters, I don't know who they may bring back or even if they may consider it but it would be nice if there is a final tournament it should go out with a bang. And a good one at that.

    Its probably going to be an Ash solo tournament so he can win something, probably against major Elite characters.

    Lol there's nothing that suggests this besides baseless speculation. Kind of like how since Ash lost all the don tournaments he had to win the league to make up for it right?

    Which characters would those be? If it's any elite 4 members or champions Ash would definitely lose in the 1st round of the tournament then, if there even is one.

    I really hope we get no more tournaments after the N series climax.

    If Ash ever faced the Elite Four for once, I would honestly think that these made-up leagues are all worthless.

    I'm just hoping the rest of the Elite 4 members even show up. I have no idea where they could, maybe they might pop out of nowhere in the anime like the other members did in the past. Excluding Flint, since he appeared where he did in the games.

    I'm sorry, but this is even worse then the 'synchronization'-debate.. First you need to realize that the US dub is secondary to the Japanese original. Starting the XY animé early will have negative results on sales for the games when they eventually do release in Japan. After the first two to four weeks, you can already (in the previous three generations) see the interest in the animé die down with staggering rates. What this would mean is that by the time the games would be released, the animé isn't working as effectively to promote the sales anymore as it would have if the start of both games and animé would have been synchronized. Hence why your feeling is off the mark.

    And yes, the US just needs to take it like a man in this case. The Japanese market > US market for Nintendo.

    If the original went that route, then the US has to follow mostly.. They wouldn't not air those 'Kanto Fillers'..

    Hopefully they'll just make it all double battles so that SOMETHING can get a win..

    Well it will be kind of awkward when people in the US have been playing xy for months and adventures in unova is still on.

    In my original post, I was going to say that, but it was a lot of rambling, so I just shortened it. Locormus and AuraChannelerChris said pretty much of what I was going to say.

    Now that there's time left, they should introduce Rose, Nate and Hugh and have them in a tournament. Bianca would reappear for Ash to fight against, since he didn't have a chance at the Unova League. Iris and Georgia would finish their rivalry conveniently, and Burgundy could get a win. No single battles allowed.

    Sixteen
    Ash vs cotd
    Iris vs cotd
    Bianca vs cotd
    Georgia vs cotd
    Hugh vs cotd
    Rosa vs cotd
    Nate vs cotd
    Cilan vs Burgundy

    Eight
    Ash vs Bianca
    Iris vs Burgundy
    Georgia vs Rosa
    Hugh vs Nate

    Four
    Ash vs Hugh
    Iris vs Georgia

    Finals
    Ash vs Iris

    An actual WT with gym leaders and especially Elite Four would be cool too.

    Ash vs Iris again in the finals, gods no. Iris should go out early and let Cilan shine in a tournament. He can face Ash in the finals
