    Default Unova league in 3 months (in anime time)

    In the summaries its confirmed Ash has all 8 badges, and in anime time at least, the Unova league starts in 3 months. Now we don't know if it will be 3 months for us in real life, but it at least confirms the Unova league is coming sooner rather than later.

    Do you think the Unova league will be held in Eastern Unova?

    I have little doubt that it will also be three months for us, considering that the writers were precise about the period Ash had to wait for the previous leagues.

    Do you think the Unova league will be held in Eastern Unova?
    The in-game league is technically located in Eastern Unova, albeit in the north. I think that Ash won't go through Opelucid City and will instead take the new route (from B2W2) to the league, which only passes through Eastern Unova.

    I suspect we'll see Drayden before the league however, if only for Iris. Currently I am speculating that Drayden is an Elite 4 member in BW2, which explains his absence thus far.

    Regardless of when Drayden will show up, I don't think we'll ever see Opelucid City in the anime. It has two distinct versions in the game and I suspect that the writers don't want to incorporate just one version, or do something different that wouldn't be faithful to either version. Drayden could show up anywhere now that the gym itself doesn't have to be seen.

    Funny thing is 3 months time gives us roughly 11-12 episodes for the Eastern Unova arc. Pretty much a decent length of eps for a mini-arc.

    Satoshi should at least make Top 4 since he's never gone backwards in his league progression.

    I don't remember who said this, but I like the theory that Satoshi loses in the Junior World Cup, and then promises he'll battle Adeku once he wins the league. Could we finally see it?

    Satoshi's training and Pokemon in no way make me think he can make it to the Top 4 again. Poorly trained and some don't even have a fourth move.

    Ash's rivals suck battle wise in Unova. As long as they don't pull a Tobias 2.0, Ash should have no trouble beating Trip, Bianca, Stephen, Burungly or Georgia in the league.

    Yeah, I don't see him winning this league. Probably Top 4 again...*yawn* Not gonna get my hopes up.

    Indigo: Top 16
    Johto: Top 8
    Hoenn: Top 8
    Sinnoh: Top 4
    Unova: Champion Top 4

    I guess the "new rival" will show up like Morrison. Really late, and rather close to the league.

    Think of it this way, there's still all of 2013 without a new game. What the hell are the writers going to do if the league finishes up by January?

    I don't see why he wouldn't use his reserves.

    Have him go to the post-league region in B2W2.

    I have no idea, but I'm going to keep my expectations realistically low.

    Well a new gen wouldn't come out till September at the earliest, it still gives them a good 7 months. And with Eastern Unova ALREADY being covered now, it really makes you wonder.

    Sure I imagine the Team Rocket stuff will take up some time hopefully, but there is still a LOT of "free time" there.

    With all the talk about the Champion League it might have a "higher" chance of happening than before. However, Ash actually being strong enough to enter still seem pretty low overall.
