This is me when a Pokémon is called an abomination:
On the topic of Eggs, I would like either a Noibat or Skrelp egg to be owned by someone from the main cast. I know everyone will go "but Skrelp needs water" but I personally see no problems with it floating. Noibat sounds weird as a suggestion but I'd give Clemont the Noibat Egg over the others since I feel it suits him a little more.
If Dragalge can float instead of needing water all the time it better ****ing be on Ash's team or I'll kill
I don't see a problem with Skrelp/Dragalge floating on air, it's part dragon after all, and doesn't retain it's part Water typing, so I don't see why it couldn't work.
Now here's the thing just how marketable/popular is Lucario? Is it popular enough to become Ash's equivalent to TR's Wobbuffet?
I fear if Ash ever got a Lucario it would change Ash's team set up from Pikachu + At least 5-6 other Pokemon. To Pikachu, Lucario + At least 4 other Pokemon. Oh sure Ash could get 3+ Wild Cards, but really between the likes of Pikachu, Lucario, and the Starters (Ash will hopefully start getting just one-two if they have too-in this case) it'd be amazing if they ever get any screen time.
In that case if Mega Evolution continues on into the next generation I hope they continue with a quality over quantity formula with new Pokemon. The fewer the better. More screen time for everyone.
EDIT: I could see Dragalge floating in air, but not Skrelp since it doesn't get it's Dragon typing till it evolves.

Only if Flabébé is not owned by a COTD.
My fav Pokémons
I hope at the very last second it is found out that flabébe is owned by some random cotd.
If we really need to give a MegaEvo-vable pokemon for Clemont, then we also have the choice of a Manectric as well.
Well, since i consider that Clemont's present team is sort of turning out to be an Anti-Electric one (not considering Dedenne since its mainly for Bonnie's usage), him getting an Electrike/Manectric with 'Lightningrod' ability would be quite good. Plus he could get the Mega Stone for it from his dad.
As for Serena, i feel that she would atleast get 4 pokemons. But it is also possible that she may end up getting a full team of 6.
Misty & Dawn had a full team at one point in the show (during their travelling time) while May had a max. of 5 (i think) at a given time. Iris got 4 while during the course of Unova. So, i feel that they would not go below the number of 4 for a female companion.
Concluding, the lines that aren't taken yet (Alexa is a recurring character, thus Helioptile, Skiddo and Noibat are excluded in my list, as are the Kanto starters):
- 1. Scatterbug
- 2. Litleo
- 3. Flabebe
- 4. Pancham
- 5. Furfrou
- 6. Espurr
- 7. Honedge
- 8. Spritzee
- 9. Swirlix
- 10. Binacle
- 11. Skrelp
- 12. Clauncher
- 13. Tyrunt
- 14. Amaura
- 15. Eevee -> Sylveon
- 16. Hawlucha
- 17. Carbink
- 18. Goomy
- 19. Klefki
- 20. Phantump
- 21. Bergmite
Mega Evolution Lines: Excluding the Kanto starters, Heracross (Ash), Ampharos and Blaziken (Limone) and Gardevoir, Lucario and Garchomp (Diantha, Korrina and Ash/Sycamore)
- 1. Abra
- 2. Gastly
- 3. Kangaskhan
- 4. Pinsir
- 5. Magikarp
- 6. Aerodactyl
- 7. Scyther
- 8. Houndour
- 9. Larvitar
- 10. Mawile
- 11. Aron
- 12. Meditite
- 13. Elektrike
- 14. Shuppet
- 15. Absol
- 16. Snover
- Mime Jr.
A whopping 43 lines! And that's excluding the possibility of a character having something in a different stage that another character already has. Such as someone owning a Goodra and somebody else owning a Goomy/Sliggoo... Now, Ash only needs three more lines, leaving at least 40 lines that have been proven to promote the current generation. You are saying that Serena can't get 5 of those 40, and that quite frankly is a bit underestimating the writers. Especially if there are more Mega Evolutions added in the follow-up game, or if there are remakes, which would make that regions starters viable yet again..
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
"If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."
Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:
The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..
Ash can easily get a team out of Kalos pokemon, my sig has my prediction .-.
Can also replace Phantump with Skiddo, and either wildcard slots with any other Kalos mon.... Hawlucha, Honedge, Litleo, w/e
I don't believe much else will go on Ash's team but that's my prediction :P
For example I see Meowstic as a possibility, but I'm really starting to doubt it now, I have hope for Honedge but I don't see it happening, Carbink and Klefki could both happen I spose but I'm doubtful as both are starring in the next movie and short respectively (well Carbink isn't starring but has a fairly major role)
All others either type overlap which I don't expect and don't want to happen, or I just don't believe will happen at all (Pancham, Flabebe, fossils,etc)
I also don't think Ash is catching something to mega evolve, but I can easily be wrong on that :P
3DS Friend Code: 0473-8153-4660 (Fairy safari)
I'll fix my sig eventually....
Emerald Nuzlocke Team: Fire Red Randomizer Nuzlocke Team:
Black 2 team:Y Team:
Predictions for Ash's team:
Greninja-evolves before the League
Talonflame-evolves before the 7th or 8th gym
Phantump-stays unevolves and deals with its confidence issues
Sliggoo-caught as a Goomy
Clefairy-he gets it as an egg.Cleffa hatches from it and evolves with friendship.Remember when Ash was supposed to have Clefairy instead of Pikachu?Well,I think it's appropriate now.Ash can have a girly pokemon.Ash can have a Fairy type.So,shut up!
I can see this team in the League.There could be two tripple battles.In the first,he uses Pikachu,Sliggoo and Clefairy and in the second he uses Greninja,Talonflame and Phantump.
Pikachu-Thunderbolt,Electro Ball,Quick Attack,Iron Tail
Greninja-Hydro Pump,Water Shuriken,Double Team,Night Slash
Talonflame-Acrobatics,Flare Blitz,Flamethrower/Heat Wave,Steel Wing
Phantump-Horn Leech,Phantom Force,Energy Ball,Will-O-Wisp
Sliggoo-Dragon Breath,Muddy Water,Body Slam,Protect
Clefairy-Copycat,Wake-Up Slap,Wish,Moonblast or Disarming Voice[wich should be changed to 60 BP to match the likes of Swift,Magical Leaf etc etc]

Flabebe, Slyveon, Swirlix, and Spritzee are all better choices to promote Fairy Pokemon on the main cast. And so is Dedenne, if they ever decide to show it's Fairy side. Clefairy is a old Pokemon that doesn't have a Mega Evolution and only promotes that it had a type change. Something the Kalos Pokemon can all promote better, IMO. Again, the only old Pokemon I'm looking forward to on the main cast are the ones that can Mega Evolve. If you can't Mega Evolve, you advertise nothing at all if your a old Pokemon. Now if we get a remake of a old game, like people keep whining about then Starters of whatever game that is become catchable again. Nintendo might even give those Pokemon Mega Evolutions to spice it up too.
