I feel like the writers are sending us a message.
- May went to Johto.
- Dawn went to Johto.
- Iris will go to Johto.
Will all the new female companions be going to Johto now? LOL
I feel bad for them. Of all regions, the writers always decide to make them go to the most boring one.
Haha, that's subjective. :P
Although Ho-oh is probably there, the one Ash should have met ages ago. Perhaps there's a connection, maybe Ash should just follow Ho-oh to Johto and stay there and build his harem.
The writers have obviously never forgotten about the disdain toward the Johto saga from the original fanbase a decade ago. That's why they spite fans by sending old female leads there and purposely didn't make any Johto BF arc.
OR, this is all secretly leading up to Ash's epic, final adventure in Johto featuring Ho-oh, Team Rocket and all the female companions as well as his father, thus redeeming Johto forever.
That'd be neat.
They never tell us where they go after Johto though. May is obviously not there anymore, but since she's unlikely to appear again, we'll never know.
May can always appear in XY to feature her MegaBlaziken, even more so if we're indeed getting the RS remakes.

I can almost guarantee they won't use her to showcase mega-Blaziken. Just like Misty never got that Togekiss people speculated for her back when DP first started.
Also AG is a very old series now, it started a decade ago. Kids today don't even know who May is, she's basically been gone almost as long as Misty now. Pretty soon Dawn will fall into that pile as well.
Oh boy. What happened to the man who believed in Champion League?
We need to believe.
@ Tsutarja: Not all girls. Misty was spared from this faith ending located in Kanto. :D
Though its becoming bizarre how every other girl companion is written of and sended to Johto being like some sort of "graveyard" where Ash companions go ending forgotten and abandoned eventually. Sad to witness such cruel fate, because im sure most of us would appreciate more if they were kept relevant(alive coming back when they could contribute to story playing part of it and get more growth themselves. Aside from maybe Dawn, i felt May, Iris and Misty had room to be done more with them.

As much as it may entertain you thought of there existing conspiracy theories with writers on purpose avoiding to reference Johto or go back to it ever since it ended because vocal minority complained about it on internet things don't work that way.
Writers dont waste their time in reading online forums, and judging by constant throwbacks to "such an hated saga" over the years whether its Jasmine or Clair appearance, onslaught of Johto pokemon in DP saga when Lyra made debut, stream of references to original series in Ag etc dispolay how writers have anything but some animosity toward region itself.
Obviously we're not being totally serious. But Johto is a graveyard to send old females.....lol.
Johto: Where old companions are sent to die.
This joke is getting old.
