I just want Ash to catch Froakie and Pancham in Karos. He'll probably catch a Fletchling too since he always gets the regional bird
I'm with you there... though I also want to see him have Fennekin as well as catch a Dunsparce before going to Kalos and bring it with him...
I looked through the record of last minute captures that have happened throughout the anime, and the latest that one occurred was with Aipom, about 3 months before the end of the generation. An evolution, however, doesn't seem to have much of a limitation, as May got her Blaziken on the next to last ep of AG. For Ash, though, I didn't check, but as far as I can think, the latest an evo occurred was Quilava's for the Sinnoh League. (a little over 2 months before the end of the gen)

Signature in progress... please wait.
I just hope Cilan does go and I do not think he has gotten Bad yet and hopefully he gets more 3 Pokemon because I was getting so annoyed that Brock had 3 for a long time.
Oh Ok well thanks for the Tip anyway Ok.
Well, with the news that Fletchling evolves into the Fire/flying type Talonflame, I would much rather have Ash catch it now. This could take up the Fire and Flying spots on his team, making way for some other new types. It also would have the potential to stand out among his previous Bird pokemon (and be miles above Unfezant).
That way I'd actually be ok with him catching the Grass starter like he always does, and now he wouldn't have to catch Fennekin (which could be a good thing, since that thing looks like it could be the next marketing whore and would never evolve)
Still catch Froakie, the potential Water/ Fighting type could be awesome. Plus I like his design
Considering the fact that he's evolved every single one of his fire starters now, I think I would be happy if it was the one that didn't get caught this time.
Talonflame and Chespin are most likely going to Ash. Other Pokemon he might catch include Pancham, Helioptile, or Clauncher. I see Skrelp and Noivern going to a rival or villain, Gogoat, Vivillon, and Sylveon being either rival or CotD mons, Fennekin going to the new girl, and Froakie being part of both Ash's group (not necessarily his capture) and a rival's team. Shishiko, Kofurai, Kofukimushi, and Furabebe are probably just CotD Pokemon.

I have claimed: Staraptor (01/12/13), Shiny Stone (02/12/13), and Limber (02/12/13).
I had always been pretty sure Ash wouldn't get Fennekin, and this seems to nearly confirm it.
