Ash disappears without a trace one night. Shortly after, a body is found and concluded to be his, and his friends and family are left to go on without him—until, over a year later, someone knocks on Misty’s door in the middle of the night.
Presenting the most self-indulgent thing I’ve ever done: a gifset of my own fic. If you like the idea and would like to see one for your fic, after Pokeshipping Week I might do a few on request!
Ash is aging and why this mean Greninja will return in Sun and Moon.
You know I am really really sad and upset that the writers got rid of Ash Greninja but then I realize that this may not the last of Greninja. Now you may be a bit confused at the title. After all, it already been established that Ash will be 10 in the anime, so why would he suddenly grow older now? Well, this lead me to a theory based off this interesting piece of dialogue I found when playing the demo of Sun and Moon.
Now we all know that the anime follows the games more or less, so this is really huge. Think about it. When Ash goes to Alola in the anime he is seen going to school with the trial captains and Lillie. So if you have to be 11 to compete in the the rite of passage, this would explain why Ash is immediately going to school instead of instantly going through the rite of passage. Plus this ties in more with the plot of the Sun and Moon game on how a kid from Kanto region move to Alola and compete in the Island Trials. But how does this tie in with Greninja returning? Well there are a couple of reasons why Greninja will return in Sun and Moon
1. Greninja appears in the Sun and Moon Game
Sure, at first Ash Greninja could be appearing in the Sun and Moon game as a exclusive pokemon, but I think it’s more then that. I believe that Greninja appears in the game because it may be hinting that he will come back in the anime. After all, pokemon like Volcanion was a pokemon you can receive due to the fact that it appeared in the XYZ movie.
2. Greninja complete his mission
Like I mentioned earlier, there may be a possibility of Ash actually aging and turning 11. If that the case, then Greninja should have completed his mission by then. After all, Zygarde just says that he require Greninja to help him and Squishy to rid Kalos of the remaining rampaging vines. So obviously once Greninja helped got rid of all the plants he would go back to Ash. So by the time Ash turns 11, Greninja will have completed his mission and then travel to Alola to meet up with Ash.
4. Ash have reunited with Pokemon he have left behind
Now I’m not talking about Pokemon he have left behind at Professor Oak, I’m talking about Pokemon he have left behind somewhere else and how he have reunited with them. Granted, this have only happen with Charizard, but mostly due to his popularity. So going back to number 3 and considering that Greninja is super popular, Greninja will definitely come back.
So in conclusion, I believe that Greninja will return. After all, it not like I’m trying to make up lies to tell myself so I don’t all angry and depress over Pokemon again. Plus after having Ash lose the Kalos league and not making Amourshipping cannon, the staff can’t bet that dumbto permanently get rid of Greninja.
In dedication to Ash & Greninja in this series, I actually cried my eyes out when making this AMV because the song…. the music, the flashbacks T_T They’re all so emotional… How can ONE region made me love these two so much! (I love Infernape too…) I didn’t want to say good-bye (I still haven’t watched Episode 46 properly, but I did download it for the purpose of this AMV… I don’t think I will watch that episode still; I won’t be able to handle all the emotions, the only reason I made this AMV is to commemorate my favourite Pokemon (Greninja/Ash-Greninja) has with Ash… I hope just like Charizard, Greninja will come back one day, I really do hope he will… I don’t care how illogical for Greninja to come back, I simply don’t care if it doesn’t make sense… (since when does this series ever make sense…) so long as Ash-Greninja/Greninja comes back to Ash permanently (like Charizard), I can live with it… Because right now, I feel so upset/depress just the same as back then when Ash left Charizard at Charicific Valley….
Please come back in the future Greninja…. Anyways…. I really do talk too much, so I’ll just stop rambling on… Enjoy fans… Don’t cry while watching this AMV, even though I purposely chose this song to bring out the feels lol xD.
I’ve read somewhere that these writers can’t seem to figure out how to close off Ash’s adventures on a high note. But it might just be a person’s opinion about the writers. If you were to write a closure episode, how would you summarize it? But before you do, remember that Ash likes to travel and meet new Pokemon and people so some context about it should be included. With Sun and Moon coming on the horizon, use the plot summary for that series as the basis. Not the OS, or AG, or DP, or BW, or XY&Z as base but Sun and Moon.
Ash has learned a lot of things while studying at the Pokemon School. However, after the incident that happened, he realized that the knowledge he earned is still not enough to make him stronger. Now that graduation is about to start soon, what will he do now?
