^ Whatever happens to those Pokémon won't mean anything in the long run, as they'll get written out by the time the next Gen Pokémon games get released. That means you're watching nothing but filler. It's sad the Pokémon anime has become this predictable, but it's the truth. Nothing you guys discuss will matter anything whatsoever as they'll have no relevance not long from now. It happened with XY and I'm certain the same thing will happen with SM. The Pokémon anime is a disgrace. It needs new people working on it to actually push the premise of Ash becoming a Pokémon Master instead of having him, Pikachu and Team Rocket run around in circles and where everyone else gets thrown in and tossed out like a disposable diaper.
