Teams and Genders
So, Pikachu will not evolve. And obviously, he's a male. No need to explain. I hope that Staravia evolves, since Staraptor is a bit smaller compared to Pidgeot, and is worth keeping. He's a male because he loves a Staravia doll with a pink ribbon on its head. I predicted Turtwig's evolution even before DP100. He's a male because gender ratio. Chimchar will probably evolve to show off its power to its former Trainer. Male because, again, gender ratio. And of course, the coolest of all, Buizel will not evolve coz' its already powerful. And its already confirmed that he's a male. Okay, nevermind Riolu, the Iron Island event had passed... So Gliscor will stay, and will leave later. He's an affectionate guy.
- Turtwig evolved into Grotle in DP100.
- Staravia evolved into Staraptor in DP118.
- Chimchar evolved into Monferno in DP132.
- Riolu's capture.
Ok. Kenny already got Prinplup and Barry have Empoleon, so its not ideal to have another one in the anime. Also, Piplup is cute enough in which contests are for. She's a female as shown in her cheering outfit unless she's not a cross dresser. Buneary's love for Dawn (for Pikachu too) would likely make it evolve into Lopunny. Since Pikachu's a male, then Lopunny's a female. Pachirisu won't evolve, it's given, and I think Dawn wants to give her mother's pet a playmate. Since Pachirisu fights like a boy (as shown in DP114), not to mention the long strip on his head, he's a male. It's frustrating that she's gone. After all those gym battles and Contests, she ended up in Ping Pong. >.> The gluttonous Swinub will probably evolve until its final form to lessen its eating habit. A male, unless he is an aggressive female. And for the last slots, I also hope she gets an Eevee like May, and evolve to a Gen V Eeveelution, if any. Or if not, I hope it evolves to Leafeon, since she lacks Grass-type. And even she doesn't have Fire-type in her team.. I DON'T WANT FLAREON ON HER TEAM!!. She will be a girl and will fall in-love with May's Glaceon.
- Cherubi has an owner.
His team would stay the same. Sudowoodo can't evolve anymore. He's a boy since he acts like one. Croagunk seems to hate Toxicroak. And he's confirmed to be a boy. Happiny is already powerful, so when she grow up, she would be more useful aside from power...And to show-off Gen II for upcoming GSDS. :) Of course, she's a girl. No doubt. The only change is that he would capture a Pokémon: a crybaby male Rhyhorn. And then, he would stay on his team until it evolves into a Rhyperior and would become a major powerful battler on his team.
To balance the team, maybe its about time for Jessie's Seviper to leave her. Wobbuffet, of course, won't leave to continue the gag. Later he would be revealed as male. I doubt it if he's female, animators won't just add him lipstick. And her newly caught female Bug-type would stay as much as the former. And for the replacement for her Seviper, she would get the Sinnoh's Poison-type (and also her specialty), a female
Stunky! It would then evolve on its way on becoming a stinky sprayer as well as smokescreener leaving the twerps blind every time they do crime. Skorupi! Why not? She showed interest on Aaron's Skorupi, so it'd be nice if she would get one. And maybe a Smoochum, but once it gets its Stage 2 evo in Gen V, I'll be sure to add her.
- She showed interest to Skorupi, not on Stunky.
Like Brock, His team will also stay the same except one, for he would capture a Cacnea replacement: Snover of the Snow. Snover would poke him with his prickly pines as Cacnea hugs him with thorny arms. All of his Pokémon are male, because they act like male.
Recurring Main Characters
If ever Misty gets episode in DP, I want her to have this team. Corsola will be back to show Aqua Ring and Power Gem. And of course he's a male because he can't create an offspring Azurill from a mother Marill. Psyduck will be back too, for fun. He's a male of course. And Azurill so that Mist has something on her arms. And it'd be a female. Horsea will evolve into Seadra then Kingdra so that it would be useful. She's female because she fits being one. Then, she would meet again her Togetic, and will evolve into Togekiss after some battle, to show off Gen IV Pokémon. He is male because he is now the king of the Kingdom. I also hope that she'll get a female Finneon that will evolve into Lumineon, to show off another Gen IV Pokémon and for it to get noticed.
Well, I think that he will no longer capture a Pokémon, unless if he's able to travel with the group once again. The possible thing that can happen on his is either evolve or release. However, I want him to have a male Chatot so that whatever he would draw, Chatot will not remain silent and criticizing his works. Of course, Scyther won't evolve, its already
senile powerful. Venonat and Marill will likely to evolve to help Tracey with their new abilities: Venomoth's dust and ability to fly and Azumarill's water float and long ears. Venomoth's female because of the seiyu. Marill is of course, female. She can't lay egg if she weren't..duh.
I'm sure that May's team won't change for now in DP, unless the main characters would travel in Johto. So far, I won't change her team. Blaziken is a male because of his character as a Combusken. Venusaur, already confirmed as a female. Glaceon, like I said, is a male. Wartortle is a crybaby boy because of gender ratio. Munchlax's a male because of gender ratio. Skitty is a girl because of, again, gender ratio.
I will predict what will happen in the revealed episode based from the episode's preview.
||Nailed it.||Pretty easy, though.|
||No one won. Sigh.||Can't believe that they would release Ambipom. T.T|
||True, sort of.||Didn't expect that the clothes were given early.|
||Got it. :)||Zoey and Candice were friends? It's awesome. :D|
||The battle part is correct, but Candice winning isn't.||In only one episode? I hate it. Candice needs more screen time. D:|
||Right about Brandon VS Paul, though wrong about Hariyama replacing Ursaring ang early evolution of Magmortar||This episode is awesome; except that Brandon and Paul are not related to each other..|
||Wrong about Brandon awakening the 'Gigas. I should have thought it's J...||All of a sudden, Paul and Reggie were gone..|
||Yeah, I meant Team Galactic. But.. no Zoey...||No more Gary appearance?!|
|DP131 & DP132||
||So the preview is the cliffhanger. And now, Paul used his old team but Gliscor.||I would still like to see Team Galactic somewhere in DP132, thought it is highly unlikely...|

CoD and Recurring Characters
|Yuri||DP095||Lily||Yuri means "Lily" in English||Lila||Oh well. Haven't think of that. Sounds similar, though. =P|
|Professor Karashina||DP096||Professor Chrysanthemum||Plant that sounds similar to Karashina and has equal number of syllables, so perfect.||Professor Carolina||Okay, not a plant name. But at least they should have given her a family name, not first name. Carolina is more of... first name.. Cynthia Carolina?|
|Jun||DP101||Barry||The first optional name for Pearl, like Gary. Gary and Barry also sound similar.||Barry||Nailed it. DP101 title revealed his name.|
|Urara||DP114||Ursula, Ulrica or Ulyssa||Ursula sounds perfect *, but for originality, I think of Ulrica or Ulyssa.||N/A|
|Poacher||DP116||Ringo||Since he has no Japanese name to be based from, I'll just base his name from the previous poacher in Hoenn, Rico. It's also possible that he's unnamed in the dub.||N/A|
|Yūsaku||DP117||Eugene or Jericho||"Eu" for "Yu", can't think of any other masculine names with "Eu". "Cho" for "Ko", so Jericho.||N/A|
|Porto||DP118||Port or Purdie||Sounds like Volt, and they wouldn't mind dropping a letter. Purdie matches syllable count.||N/A|
|Sanpei||DP118||Champy||Sounds like Sanpei, and he aims to be the champion of the PokéRinger.||N/A|
|Tetsuo||DP118||Titus||Similar. I like this name.||N/A|
|Teacher||DP121||Teacher Cindy||She's significant. She told Dawn where would be the next Contest. She needs name. Can't think of better name if nothing to be based from. Cindy from "Candice". =P||N/A|
|DP124||Ove||Can't think of a better name. Man, it's just 1 letter. And dubbers won't name him as O. ehhrr.||N/A|
|DP125||Marilyn||Yep.. I'm pretty sure they would the same dub name to continue the pattern. Marble.. Monica.. and now, Marilyn. =P||N/A|
|DP126||Mr. Scandler||Matching his Skuntank. :) Though spelling can be different.||N/A|
|DP128||Mikaela||Both start with "Mik-". Also, Mikaela is the female version of "Michael", a name based from "no person is like God", refering to her nun-like appearance.||N/A|
|Deimos or Damos||More Greek-ish. Sounds like Damos.. or they might retain the name.||N/A||N/A|
|Sheena||They'll keep it for sure. Cute name.||N/A||N/A|
|Kevin||Of course, they wouldn't change the name. That's the best name I've ever heard.||N/A||N/A|
|Jashin or Jason||Jashin is like a Hebrew name.. and Jason relates to a Greek myth.||N/A||N/A|
|Factory Head Nejiki||DP170||Factory Head Fabrice or Nicky||Factory Head, like Noland. Fabrice from fabrica, factory. Nicky if the dubbers chooses similar name.||Factory Head Thorton||Factory Head, like we've said.. but.. I don't get it. Was that a name? I think they are picking some random names to surprise us. I mean, it's not bad, and it's not good either. Which plant/color/whatever did they based this name?|
|Roulette Goddess Dahlia||DP177||Roulette Croupier/Mistress Ronnette/Rosette/Dollie||Croupier, the spinner of the Roulette or Mistress, female counterpart of Master. Ronnette and Rosette, similar to Roulette, and Dollie, for Dahlia.||Arcade Star Dahlia||Nice choice for the "Arcade Star". I didn't expect them to change the name of Facility.. but.. Why did they not change her name? Dahlia is a good name, but, it's not like them. Yes, for they've done well in Galactic commander's case.. but not the FB's..|
|Castle Butler Kokuran and Cattleya||DP183||Castellans/Castle Stewards/Wardens Cochran/Costel/Castor/Castell and Cassiope/Cassiopeia/Caitlin||Castle's drop since it would be redundant with Castellans, and Stewards or Wardens (can't think of any). All names are sort of... similar.||Castle Valet Darach and Lady Caitlin||Good thing they did not change the name of Facility... and Valet sounds good.. wait. Darach? Irish name is pretty good.. but I don't how it is pronounced. And, right for Caitlin. 1/4 =/ Very unpredictable names..|
|Stage Madonna Kate||DP189||Stage Lady Stacey/Stacie/Kate||Madonna=Lady, Stacey or Stacie, from Stage, or if the dubbers get lazy, Kate will do.||Hall Matron Argenta||Of all the Sinnoh FB names, I find this one interesting. I don't like, I like it, I don't know. I'm confused.|
