If they don't plan to bring Cilan to Gen 6, then at some point, he'll need some sort of closure with his quest. Hmm...that'll be maybe 2-4 episodes worth. I'd say evolve more of Ash's Pokemon, but at this point it's near useless to do so.
Zekrom is nowhere in sight for the Episode N conclusion, plus Best Wishes began with Zekrom, so it ending with Zekrom makes perfect sense.
I think they could introduce the PWT, since they haven't did it yet and it's one of the few relevants thing of Unova the anime hasn't show. I really doubt (and would totally hate) a 5+ months period with nothing more than fillers. Seriously, don't. If they introduce the PWT, I think the gang could met Clay again somewhere and he'd be the one who tells them of the PWT, just like in the games. I can see a Unova Gym Leaders tournament where normal trainers can participate too. A big tournament, where Ash, Iris, Cilan, Bianca, Georgia, Burgundy, Cilan's brothers, Drayden, Dino and some others participate. And Ash uses reserves.
The battles I'd like to see:
-Ash vs Luke.
Muk vs Volcarona - Muk wins (and is defeated by Golurk later)
Totodile vs Zorua - Totodile wins (and is defeated by Golurk later)
Torterra vs Golurk - Torterra wins
-Cilan vs Chili
Pansage vs Pansear (only battle shown) - Pansage wins.
-Ash vs Bianca.
Kingler vs Escavalier - Kingler wins
Bayleef vs Cinccino - Bayleef wins (and is defeated by Emboar later)
Snorlax vs Emboar - Snorlax wins
-Iris vs Georgia.
Axew vs Vanilluxe - Axew wins (and is defeated by Beartic)
Excadrill vs Beartic - Excadrill wins (and is defeated by Bisharp)
Dragonite vs Bisharp - Dragonite wins
-Cilan vs Burgundy.
Stunkfist vs Stoutland - Stunkfist wins (and is defeated by Darmanitan)
Pansage vs Dewott - Pansage wins (and is defeated by Darmantian)
Crustle vs Darmanitan - Almost tie, Crustle close win. Burgundy settled her rivalry with Cilan.
-Ash vs Dino.
Corphish vs Darmanitan - Corphish wins (defeated by Seismitoad)
Tauros vs Seismitoad - Tauros wins (defeated by Druddigon)
Glalie vs Druddigon - Glalie wins

Crustle vs Druddigon - Druddigon wins.
-Iris vs Cress.
Excadrill vs Panpour (only battle shown) - Excadrill wins.
-Ash vs Iris.
Scraggy vs Axew - Tie
Snivy vs Emolga - Tie
Pikachu vs Excadrill - Tie (yeah, 3 ties in a row xD)

Glalie vs Flygon - Glalie wins (and is defeated by Salamence)
Pikachu vs Altaria - Pikachu wins (and is defeated by Salamence)
Charizard vs Salamence - Charizard wins
Ash win a tournament in Unova, Iris and Georgia and Cilan and Burgundy settled their rivalries and the reserves are shown. All people happy. And it's perfectly possible, there is plenty of time and we don't know what they decided to do after this yet.
Do you like it?
Actually they could do a tournament for gym leaders or there chosen representatives. So Drayden could ask Iris & they could always have one of Cilans brothers be ill or something & ask Ash to take there place
Anyway, new theory for what happens after Episode N guys. The writers adapt the BW2 plot-line a little bit more and N turns to working with Team Plasma, there's no sign of Zekrom in the Reshiram episode. Leading me to believe the Climax of Episode N will be Satoshi-tachi failing and N taking control of Reshiram and turning to TP with Satoshi-tachi trying to find Zekrom so Satoshi can become a Hero destined to save Isshu. Aloe returns with info on the Dark Stone near the Resort Desert and reveals she gave up being a Leader to run the museum, etc. etc.
Though I'd be all up for another tournament.
I'm also becoming increasingly interested in Langley and Cabernet, what's going on with them?
Arguably, I found the Team Plasma plot in BW far more interesting than the one in B2W2.
I wanted a damned building rise up below the league, dammit.
Another idea I have is that Shooti and Satoshi will have a full battle in the future. Somehow the writers will work in an bird battle with Satoshi's being superior due to the superior speed of the female and Pikachu and Jalorda will tie against each other at the beginning of the match. Tsutarja, Chaobu, Mijumaru, and Waruvial/Zuruggu will be the other participants. The first five being "obligatory" due to them being the original team he battled at the Battle Club. This full battle will take place at the Battle Club and the final battle will involve Tsutarja learning a new move and beating Jellicent/Chandelure/New Pokemon. Shooti then decides to continue his journey and visit the Kanto Region.
Satoshi later battles Virgil and Kotetsu in a WT Senior Cup. He beats Kotetsu in a three-on-three battle. Sanzandora(Maybe something else.), Lucario, and something new versus Chaobu, Waruvial, and Hahakomori.
Virgil also. Ninfia, Thunders, and Showers VS. Pikachu, Tsutarja/Janovy, and Gantle.
Dento versus Kenyan and Iris versus Bel in a formal battle. Both traveling companions win or Iris and Bel tie. Chillaccino, Emboar, and Marilli versus Emonga, Doryuzu, and Kibago, final match is Marilli versus Kibago.

Anyway, I'd like a full battle between Ash and Trip, at least an informal one like the battle with Paul where Chimchar evolved. But if there were to be a tournament, something like a WT Senior Cup, I'd like Ash to use his reserves pokemon too. It'd be nice if Trip caught a huge powerfull pokemon, like Salamence and Ash fight it with Charizard. Let Trip see some Kanto power xD. Maybe Ash uses Charizard against Trip and that's why he decide to go to Kanto for his next journey.

You guys are forgetting the fact that a Senior Cup could be for older trainers only.
The reason I think Iris and Bel would face off against each other is because they have a connection in the anime and in the game, Bel said that one day her and Iris should have a formal battle at the end of her mini-traveling arc. with Satoshi-tachi and she said that all of Iris's Pokemon were quite unique and strong. In-game those two are friends too and trained with each other and Iris played the role of Bel's "bodyguard" :P Losing to Iris could help her realize a new path in her life, in-game Bel goes through development and realizes not everyone can be strong and Pokemon battling isn't for everyone which develops her toward the idea of being a Pokemon professor. After losing those two could have a moment together and she could start working under Araragi-Hakase or Araragi-Hakase Senior. I could easily see her using a, newly caught, Tyltalis(Altaria) against Iris along with Chillacinno(Hopefully it evolved) and her Emboar. Iris of course would use Emonga, Doryuzu, and Kibago. Emonga battles Chillacino and wins, she uses Tyltalis which Emonga paralyzes with Static but Bel returns and sends it back out and its been healed due to its ability and then knocks out Emonga after being zapped a few times, Kibago comes out and knocks it out, and then Emboar shows up and knocks out Kibago with Doryuzu coming in and winning. I figured Iris would battle Shooti at some point since Shooti was interested in her before and really wanted to battle but she rejected but I think battling Satoshi would be better.
Next up, we have Kenyan versus Dento. Honestly not sure why these two would battle aside from them never have a lengthy battle together. I just can't think of anyone to pair Dento against, he beat and lost to Shooti already. He doesn't really have a connection to Bel either. So Kenyan is the last choice and he could win by the final battle being Lepardas/Something new versus Maggyo.

Ash vs Trip
Pikachu vs Serperior: tie, both knock each other out at the begining of the battle.
Snivy vs Jellicent: Snivy wins
Pignite vs Conkeldurr: Tie
Unfezant vs Unfezant: Ash's wins
Oshawott vs Chandelure: Oshawott wins (he needs a win xD)
Oshawott, Snivy and Unfezant vs New badass powerhouse (I'd like Salamence): Trip's powerhouse wins
Charizard vs New powerhouse: Charizard wins.
Seeing Charizard in battle makes Trip decide to travel through Kanto.
Anyway, a bad tournament is better than the best of the fillers (with a few rare exception, but my point still stands). I prefer a lackluster tournament over pure fillers. I mean, imagine 5 months worth of "Mareep and Rescue corps" episodes like. Yeah... not good really.
We proaly know this soon in CoroCoro after the post-N saga (if there's really post Episode N).
The interesting part comes here:
If the writers start to adapt the BW game after the visit of the White Ruins (N getting Reshiram), the next steps are:
-Ash taking the Dark Orb who contains Zekrom.
-Ash fighting the Unova Elite 4* by request of "somebody" (later know to being N)
-When Ash defeats the Elite 4*, N summons his castle.
-Reshiram VS Zekrom
-Post Reshiram vs Zekrom. The rest of the N battle with at least Zoroark.
Ends. This and the Tao dragons battle is a complete 6vs6.
*How can Ash defeat those guys if the Elite 4 is very powerful for any normal trainer and Ash is too weak now.
Answer: 1) Ash will use his more powerful reserves apart of his team and 2) The Elite 4 will be "weak" (relatively) by Ash's Reshiram.
This could be a good excuse to showcase Ash's reserves to the anime because we have 21 opportunies (4vs4) or 17 opportunities (3vs3) of showcasing Ash's pokemon.
The climax will be of 7-8 episodes at most and will be after the writers puts where is the movie. (A good idea is that TV-Tokyo delay the Naruto special caused by the Movie break (which I expect to be Movie 1) at the end of Best Wishes doing a (mini-hiatus). Also, the canon'e epsiode where the movie takes place could happen few weeks earlier.
And, why I said all of this?
-1. It's a theory.
-2. Of the character who hasn't appeared there's 3 of 4 memers of the Unova Elite 4. (And Caitlin hasn't meet Ash).
-3. In the climax there's no trace of Zekrom and Zoroark. Zekrom should be expected and N's Zoroark (WHO IS DIFFERENT to N's Zorua)**
**Rememer that N's Zorua and N's Zoroark are two different pokemon:
N's Zorua: The Zorua that appears in the flashack related to N's past Ins the Zorua that you can obtain in B2W2 by one Sage whose OT is N. Confirmed to appear on 21st March.
N's Zoroark. This is the pokemon that we fought if we are against N in the BW games. And the pokemon that locks the path to N's castle in B2W2.
And apart of that: if Episode N really ends, a tournament is the most likely option. And Burgundy and Georgia should appear at least one more times. And personally, ianca (Juniper's assistant) and Virgil if the theory is true (also fitting for Eevee's promotion).
Note: Here is a difference between CyberCubed/The Fighting Misty idea and my idea:
-Cyber thinks that what is happening is Ash winning a League, Ash is facing the Elite 4, wins it, Ash faces Cynthia, wins and Ash leaves the show and the XY series is a reboot. Theory that doesn't make sense when he said winning the Kanto league and fighting the Sinnoh Champion.
It'd be like the Raid but with Pokemon.

Can offer high IV'd Bagons, Digletts, and Darumakas, as well as DWs, Pokerus, and more, PM me if interesting in negotiating.
The April 18th episode may not feature Zekrom battling Reshiram, but the title ("Beyond Truth and Ideals") makes it clear that Zekrom will at least be strongly referenced. The fact that N is battling Reshiram, which is being controlled by Team Plasma, definitely doesn't suggest that N is going to join Ghetsis. There is no logical way for the writers to justify a plot twist like that, since unlike in Black and White, N already knows all about Ghetsis' real intentions.
For all we know, N was already involved in a battle between Reshiram and Zekrom, since something had to have happened after he met Reshiram the first time. As for Ash, he was involved with Zekrom and Reshiram in Movie 14. It is too late for an adaptation of Black and White's plot.

I'm speaking as impartial watcher as I have no special attachment for any character. I'm just concerned about the plot. I shouldn't never take hopes from the writers, I should have remembered they no longer care about plot.
I wouldn't make so many theories if I were you. This anime is too talented in neglect any characters which aren't teh three stars. Cabernet and the others might never ever appear again, knowing the anime, they're capable of that.
