Riolu/Lucario and didn't go crazy when Ash got Gliscor and Gible "instead"
Let's hope for gen 6 and the DP remakes! Dawn appears to meet Ash and new girl in a special Contest, reveal to Ash she met Riley again and he gave her an egg, Dawn gives Ash the egg and later Riolu hatch!Actually design wise, it true that Lucario really fit Ash, but Movie 8 and the fact that too many DP characters got a Lucario killed that.
...I think now I REALLY need to run away
I haven't seen it yet, so I can only speculate. I think it was an OK move really. It's an interesting Pokemon to see in the anime and Dawn hasn't had all that many Pokemon. Whether it was actually needed for plot development, I don't think so from what I've heard.
Sure Ash needs to go into more aura plots! Actually, after Riolu will hatch and showcase its aura abilities, Dawn will reveal that she can use aura too and connect with her Togekiss... then Ash and Dawn will realize, thanks to the queen, that they can't ever leave each other... there's a special aura bond between them... so Dawn will throw a giant Piplup statue on Kenny, Ash will tell gen 6 girl to go kill herself and Ash and Dawn run away together
See? both not only QC will be happy, but Urban too!! I'M GENIUS, more than Flint!!
(lol imagine this forum going crazy if something like that would really happen...)
Togekiss had nothing to do with Misty whatsoever. In fact it did prove that the writers no longer associate the Togepi line with Misty.
Same for that evil Togepi that appeared before that, Misty wasn't even referenced or mentioned at all in that episode, Ash/Brock didn't even tell Dawn about the original Togepi they traveled with.
Omg yes, Dawn's Togekiss was horrible. It was just given to her at the last minute to fill up space after Ambipom left for a stupid reason, and they had other choices, yet they give her a fully evolved Togekiss? I might understand if she was given Togepi, maybe the evil one, but still. It may not seem like a big deal now because of what happened with Iris and Dragonite (I think Dawn and Togekiss is personally worse, but Iris and Dragonite is objectively worse).
The Writers probably wanted to give Dawn a 6th Pokemon I think and that is why se got a Togekiss.
