Since it is very likely we will see Ash travel to the Kalos region, what are your thoughts on what his new journey will be like? What Pokémon will he catch and who will his new friends be? Who will he travel with? So far, most of his companions have been game characters, is it someone we have already seen in the previews of the game? Copied from the front page (pictures are also on the front page): Shauna is an incredibly energetic girl who is coming along on the journey to find a dream of her own. She’s friendly and outgoing, and seems to genuinely enjoy all the curiosities you’ll come across on your journey. Trevor (orange hair) bursts with curiosity about the world around him. He’s an excellent student, and very competitive, wanting to be the first of the group to complete his Pokédex. Tierno (black shirt) is the dancer of the group and wants more than anything to create a dance team with his Pokémon. Strong, kind, and light on his feet, Tierno gets easily distracted by watching opposing Pokémon during battles because he’s too busy trying to incorporate Pokémon moves into his dances. Serena or Calem (the playable characters) lives next door to you in Vaniville Town. This character has a passion to become a powerful Pokémon Trainer and sets out on the journey to accomplish that dream. Are any of these eligible travel companions for the anime? Who would you like to see the most? ____ Personally I would like to see Tierno, based on the description he's a dancer. That could be used for comic relief or even a whole new competition in the Kalos region. Instead of contests, musicals, etc. there could be Pokémon Dansing Competitions. At the E3 it was mentioned that France was chosen as a inspiration because of their link to beauty. When I hear that I think of Art, and the Art of Dance is one of the possibilities. In Hoenn and Sinnoh, Ash's partners all had a goal they were working on in the anime. Misty and Iris also had goals (becoming a Water-type and Dragon-type Master, respectively), but they did not actively participate in competitions or anything of that sort to accomplish their goals, unlike May and Dawn with their contests. What will the new partner strife for and how? Could Ash partner up with a rival that, just like himself, strives to be a Pokémon Master? So far Ash caught Krabby and Corphish, will he catch Clauncher to add to his collection? Or will Froakie be his Water-type partner? Maybe he'll catch both, or get a complete different Water-type like Skrelp?! I can definitely see Ash partner up with a Grass-type like Chespin too.
