    Since when was it confirmed that Iris would take on the position of being a gym leader? She was offered to become, but she was rather hesitant, wasn't she? For all we know she could just go with Clair after BW's over.

    She was invited to train to be a gym leader, and since her goal is to be a Dragon Master, I don't see any reason to refuse that. Although she could very well train with Clair, that would be insulting to accept training from her, rather than from her village, imo.

    As you said, her goal is to become a Dragon Master, not specifically a gym leader. If Iris actually had reacted in an optimistic way once she heard the offer, I might would've though different, but since she was both very surprised and hesitant I cant't see it happening, at least not after BW has ended. I doubt the writers would take back Clair this late in the series without having a very good reason for it. I doubt she'll gain especially much from training in her village as that is the place she's almost spent her entire life at, by following Clair she'll get the chance to see other Dragon-types than those in the village.

    I really do hope the writers don't make Iris catch a Shiny Druddigon. It was bad enough that Iris managed to obtain a Dragonite that completely overshadowed her "main" pokemon Axew. And especially during a point this late in the series, when Iris may be leaving the main cast in a few months, what good would obtaining another Dragon-type contribute to the storyline?

    What would Ash's Pignite or Palpitoad evolving contribute to the story line? What did Combusken's late evolution contribute? Nothing, some people just want her to catch the Druddigon because it's a Dragon, Shiny, and not an evolved Pokemon. It doesn't really matter to me if it contributes a heavy amount, I just want her to catch the sparkly Lego Dragon-type since it's one of my favorite Pokemon.

    Though it's probably Clair's Pokemon. If Iris hands over Dragonite to Clair, I'm not sure what to make of that. The writers could easily do something like that if Clair's Dragonite is a girl.

    To be a gym leader is one step ahead to become a Dragon Master.

    I don't remember exactly the scene, so I can't say whether it was really hesitant or just caught off guard. I would as well be kind of surprised if such role was offered to me out of nowhere.

    Meh, that may be right. She could train there just so she could accept the role of Gym Leader afterwards.

    As for Dragonite, if Iris' departure actually turns out to train with Clair, then there's no sense to say goodbye to the dragon.

    In what way, exactly? You'll get to battle more, but at the same time you'll be stuck to the gym.

    She didn't seem especially postive about it at all, not even when Dento and Ash were glad for her sake.

    Within DA, I hope we get some the following:

    Captures: Ash's Sableye (shown in the Genesect movie, it can be an Aipom v2.0 if it gets a Gen 6 evo)
    Evolutions: Cilan's Pansage (they should do this at some point of BW, if there is a chance, it will happen at the very end...)
    To Oak: The Whole Unova Team, at the very end.
    To Charicific Valley: Ash's Charizard (either after N or DA)

    I got a scum result on that bush! LYNCH IT LYNCH IT LYNCH IT!

    Wasn't Sableye confirmed to be a movie-character only?

    Indeed it was. So that Sableye isn't Ash, it's playing a role similar to Buizel/Aipom/Bonsly/Munchlax in the AG movies.

    That still means it gets some connection Gen 6, plus it gives us a chance that a Gen 6 character will get it (see Buizel).

    There is no confirmation of either of these two pokemon evolving, and we know for sure that Pignite will remain unevolved in the Genesect film.

    What did Combusken's late evolution contribute? Nothing.
    May's Combusken evolving in the second to last AG episode did accomplish something. As a fully evolved pokemon, Blaziken was able to be a relatively equal match to Ash's Sceptile during that final contest. The evolutions of these pokemon that had been obtained within the first ten episodes of the AG series into their final forms were testaments to Ash and May's skills as trainers and coordinators, respectively. This fake contest and Combusken's evolution into its final form was one last hurrah before Ash and May went off their separate ways.

    The Sceptile vs. Blaziken battle made an otherwise uninteresting departure from the main cast seem enjoyable in the end.

    That's part of the way. As you get into more battles, you learn strategies to counter what would be critical against your preferred type and such. After that, you would need to take off the role, in order not to be centered only in battles, but also into the depths of a Pokémon and its types, of course.

    I believe Ash will caugh a Sableye afterwards. I would like to see him with a Ghost type, and I'd be even happier if it get to evolve in 6th gen.

    The point is, the evolution was just as unimportant since in the grand scheme of things May got it toward the end and the point I'm trying to make is, regardless of that, I wouldn't mind Iris catching that Druddigon. If Pignite and Palpitoad were to evolve, it would technically be pointless but I don't care. I'd just be happy to see two Pokemon I really like evolve or a Pokemon I like caught. Or a Pokemon I like(Combusken) finally reach its final form.
