-Your rival/friend (like Hau) is an old and reformed Team Skull Grunt (Named Grunt) who decides to do the island challenge
-Different elite four
-Old protagonist as champion
-Not (as) edgy, matured Gladion who possibly acts as a mentor and leader of Aether
-LILLIE RETURNS. YOU BATTLE TRAINER LILLIE. YES.
-TEARY CUTSCENE OF A REUNION OF LILLIE, HAU, AND OLD PROTAGONIST
-Team Skull is a force for good now and is no longer a gang
-New bad guys, maybe people from Team Skull and/or Aether who still want to be bad
-Box Legend: Necrozma
-Maybe new mini islands?
-A Rotom Dex either passed on from the old protagonist or we see the old Rotom talking to the new Rotom and giving them advice on how to be a good partner(new rotom should have new distinct and fun personality)
International police cops:
HEY KID we heard you're a Pokémon master, do you wanna help us mess with the space time continuum and catch inter-dimensional ultra beasts?
I mean sure, that makes sense, I AM a Pokémon master...
International Crime COps:
cool head on over to Aether foundation and talk to Wicke
btw this isn't about the ultra beasts but Lille wanted me to explain why she went to kanto with lusamine; since we didn't really put that dialogue in the unreasonably long finale cutscene of the game and I'm sure it's been bothering you Erica cause you're weirdly invested in the characters
YES IT HAS!!! Thank you!! Please, go on
but you don't wanna hear me talk about all that...
YES I FUCKIN DO, YES I--
here, have a large chunk of fried dough for your trouble
I CANT fuckin believe this game I have to make a tumblr post
