    Default Sun & Moon Characters Speculation Thread

    This is the new thread for the human cast of the upcoming Sun & Moon anime. Feel free to discuss potential cast dynamics, characters' personalities, roles, purposes, goals, etc. You can also discuss possible appearances and personalities of characters confirmed to appear in the SM games.

    Do NOT discuss who's going to catch what Pokémon! We have a separate thread for that.

    Im hoping Kiwae is a decent challenging "rival" to Ash, would love to have one of those again.

    Also hoping the writers have a solid plan for Lillie and have her character go somewhere from day 1

    Good, now we can speculate on the Aether Foundation and Team Skull.
    "Everyone creates the thing they dread. Men of peace create engines of war. Invaders create Avengers. People create... smaller people? Er... children! I lost the word there. Children. Designed to supplant them. To help them end."

    "Resistance. Rebellion. You will burn these ideas away."

    But this is the traditional royal Canterlot voice! It is tradition to speak, using the Royal "we", and to use THIS MUCH VOLUME WHEN ADDRESSING OUR SUBJECTS!!

    Kiawe seems like he'll be a more serious rival if he is one.

    All I want is to know how they're gonna handle and explain the "Lillie can't touch Pokemon" thing. I just want to know why she can't.

    And perhaps Hau to appear and be a rival kind of guy to Ash. He looks like a fun guy to clash heads with.

    Probably because she's an UB

    i'm still confused as to why lillie can't touch pokemon. can she literally not touch them because something will happen, or is she just too scared to touch them? (similar to toby from the deoxys movie)

    I'm honestly expecting the Lilie ultra beast theory to be a red herring. Might be another explaination why ultra beast resemble certain humans

    It doesn't directly say she's necessarily scared of them, but maybe she could low-key fear them. Maybe something bad will happen to her if she touches a Pokemon. Maybe she's UB-01 in disguise and Ultra Beasts can't touch Pokemon.

    Well, we've seen UB-02 charge at Tapu Koko, so I doubt it's that UBs can't touch Pokémon (and I doubt Lillie is UB-01 anyways).

    I think the Lillie can't touch Pokémon thing is that she's either scared or allergic to them. However, that doesn't explain why she has an Alola Vulpix...

    Ash: Well, he's Ash. I expect him to still be competent, but he will surely be enjoying his time here much more, at least for the start. Near the middle, he will start to take battling extremely seriously, eventually surpassing his past limit. He will have a mini-arc in which he gets far too overconfident and starts hurting his own Pokemon due to over-training. Despite this taking some confidence away from him, he will recover immediately and proceed to win the Alola league

    Rotomdex: I feel like this is going to be the character I will get so annoyed upon. Assuming he has a personality, he will be the type that tells Ash every little thing he is doing wrong while doing nothing to help him improve. I don't expect much from it, but it would be nice to have one or two fillers based on the Rotomdex.

    Lillie: I expect her to have a pretty deep backstory. What I want is for her to be Gladion's little sister, and their past made one of them becomes a psychopathic killing machine while the other became a person who is extremely scared of Pokemon. However if this is not the case, then her being the ultra beast is fine. By the end she needs to be able to touch Pokemon without hesitation and get her backstory cleaned up. Her personality will be very gentle and kind.

    Kiwawe: He will most likely be Ash's main rival, at least for the start. At first he will disrespect Ash greatly due to his quirky nature, but later on he will come to respect him as a really good trainer. I expect his goal to be similar to Ash's and the two will face in the Alola league, in which Ash wins. His personality is serious, yet he will get fired up when it comes to battle, like Ash.

    Mallow: She will be Ash's best friend. Despite her goal being to become a great chef, she is a capable battler. She respects Ash's battling skill greatly, and will contribute in helping Kiwawe notice Ash's skill. Her personality is very upbeat and hyper.

    Lana: Like Kiwawe, She believes Ash is not a great battler at all and thinks all Ash can do is talk high and mighty. She will eventually find Ash to be extremely skilled and starts admiring him. She doesn't have a specific goal other than to find a suitable job to have a living, and will stay that way until the end. She can be pretty sassy and is often sarcastic.

    Sophocles: After being jealous of Ash's skill as a trainer, Sophocles decides to train hard to beat him one day. He does talk a lot of smack about Ash in an attempt to get his attention, but Ash seems to not care at all. In the end, Sophocles gains enough skill for Ash to realize how far he has come, and starts respecting the mini-rivalry the two has. He gets triggered easily and is often seen doing things by himself.

    Kukui: He is the main mentor of Ash. Despite being a professor, he is shown to be extremely competent in battle, taking out Ash's Pikachu with his Rockruff in a convincing way. He is a natural strategist and will plan everything ahead beforehand. He sees the tension between Ash and Kiwawe, and takes responsibility in one day making the two a great, respectable rivalry. He will have a backstory of being a trainer when he was younger, managing to win the Alola league, but could not surpass the Alolan champion. He decides he had enough of battling and wanted to teach the next generation the art of battling. Ash will eventually surpass Kukui in terms of battling by developing his own strategy of using speed as the ultimate defense, which makes Kukui think that Ash will win the league for sure. He will have a relatively laid-back personality and is extremely chill.

    I just want to know that they will make the captains and Lillie while sharing screen because if you only stay for "extras" or background characters with one pokémon throughout the saga, the fandom is living comera ...
    Well, Kiawe might be the closest thing to a rival for Ash tengna but perhaps not much interaction with Ash and summarizing only about two or three battles.
    Mallow could be the closest to Ash and perhaps the older sister to act with all the rest.
    Sophocles and Lana perhaps be the least participation and perhaps relate have only one or two of the group but in fact we know almost nothing ofthem.
    Lillie I am afraid that will have the least interaction with others and especially with Ash with that of his fear of pokémon and, perhaps, some arc that invlocre the pre-evolution of Lunaala and ultra beasts.

    I would assume that the Alolan Vulpix just follows her around. If she's actually allergic, that might explain why she doesn't like touching them. That would also be really sad in a world full of Pokemon.

    The only thing I want is the answer on why. Maybe UB-01 was modeled after her and created years ago and she got really scared of Pokemon?

    With 5 classmates, plus TR and Gladion (whom I speculate will be an Ash rival), the focus could be spread thin. XY did okay with a four man group + TR, but even then Clemont's role diminished as the series progressed. Think Lana and Sophocles might get the short end of the stick.

    I do not think Gladion is a rival of Ash, it is more could be that not even appear except in some arc involving the Team Skull and Aether, and even with it perhaps be handled as N but this being an antagonist by circumstances have meetings with Ash.

    Kiawe and Gladion are definitely going to be rivals to Ash.
    Sophocles seems like he'd be a Tierno, always losing to Ash.

    That's what I think too. Which is fine by me as we already have Water/Electric specialists on the cast. And I don't really care for them either, Kiawe, Mallow, and Lillie are interesting.

    It's just speculation but maybe when you leave SM we could get an idea of what would be his participation in the anime. In the worst case it has the same fate as AZ or Cheren.

    I don't get where everyone is going with Gladion. I don't see him as the rival type character. Even if he was, the anime would probably turn him into the school emo.

    I think it comes from everyone's speculation that Gladion is the true main rival in the games

    Following tradition an OC will probably end up being Ash's main rival over gladion

    Better hope for another Paul/Alain

    Why do I feel like Lana and Sopholcles will be ignored by everyone because they're not conventially standard/attracive in terms of character designs?

    And isn't Gladion part of Team Skull or something? Why would the school let a kid associated with regional bad guys into a happy-looking school, anyway?
