The Iris episodes appearing before the league have thrown any idea I'd have assumed of them trying to fill out the time to the next region with minor stuff in Unova, they really have very few loose ends to wrap up - and the only major one - Cilan's connoisseur goal, is one I think they won't tie up because he'll be going on into the Gen 6 region.
And you're right, it's odd how virtually all the BW plotlines are being concluded prior to the league...not a single loose end besides Team Plasma.
I decided to merge the threads on where Ash will go after the Unova saga and if people think that the Champion League is coming up with this thread and edited the title since I didn't think it was necessary to have so many threads on similar topics on post-Unova League discussion. So please keep the discussion on the future of the series after the Unova League to this thread instead of making another one.
Maybe a League representing the World Tournament with guest appearances aplenty?
Just a suggestion, mind you.
I could probably accept something like the Battle Frontier, but I loathe the idea of another Orange Islands...
And to the person who bought up the Genesect movie: remember that the Movies take place in wholly new, noncanon locales that fans have never heard of before or will again. I imagine Gene will threaten some hidden valley/kingdom/movie exclusive city (then become its protector after a random bullshit change of heart)

a post complaining about the lack of direction in his goal - but to the extent he has a storyline it would be possible to start wrapping it up if his character was leaving at the end of Gen 5, because it certainly couldn't form the basis of a post-league arc.
I hope it is Team Plasma arc
Other than Team Plasma hopefully finally appearing, it does seem like there is nothing else from the games to promote now. Its funny how they rushed in all the last Gym leaders, debuted all the remaining Unova Pokemon, and are wrapping up Iris' subplot....yet there is still almost a year of BW left.
Since BW2 has nothing left to adapt to the anime here's pretty much all the writers can do until gen 6
A Champion League (unlikely since Ash isn't ready for a challenge like this yet)
A Team Plasma Arc (very likely)
The Johto BF (unlikely since there's no reason to showcase Johto)
Sevii Islands (unlikely since Ash never catches legendaries and there no reason to showcase Hoenn)
Another anime-exclusive region(very likely)
7 months worth of fillers(sadly, very likely)
Maybe more quests? I hope so O.o
I have no idea. I would guess if I could, but I really have no idea.
A Plasma arc would've been nice, but I doubt it at this point.
''A single thread in a tapestry though its color brightly shine, can never see its purpose, in the pattern of the grand design.''
As much as I would love for this idea to happen it never would.
Ash decides to get a headstart on his journey and heads off to region 6 before the games are even announced.
At this point, I have a feeling RS remakes would be released and a Battle Frontier like-thing would happen in Hoenn.
If not so, why not a Orange Islands-like-saga?

There's nothing else that seems possible except for Team Plasma, imo
