Obey the Emperor!
I expect he'll try to bring only Pikachu, like he's repeatedly done for new regions. And I expect it to bite him on the ass shortly after he gets to Kalos.
You Might Be A Redneck If...
You think The Nutcracker is something you did off the high dive.
You've ever smuggled food out of an all-you-can-eat buffet.
The original color of your carpet is an unsolved mystery.
You've had more court dates than second dates.
The closest you've come to royalty is eating at Burger King.
You've ever stared at a carton of orange juice because it said "concentrate."
You think a quarterhorse is that ride in front of K-Mart.
It seems unlikely to me, but they did it with DP, so it could happen. Scraggy could be an option, they stilll kind of portray it as a young child, so the writers could still do something with it.

Aipom went to Sinnoh because she had a new Gen IV evolution to promote (she had been a ridiculously late capture in AG, so the whole thing had clearly been set-up as such from the start). Unless any of his current pokemon are given any added relevance in Generation VI, then I don't see it happening.
I doubt it. Ash has always sought to start fresh every time he enters a new region since the Hoenn region began. Whether that's a good thing or not, I can't say.
I suspect only Pikachu will, if anything, accompany him to the Kalos Region.

Unless the writers pull a Johto and have him slowly replace members of his team I only see Scraggy, maybe. That's only because if Iris got a cameo next gen then Axew could interact with Scraggy since they are heavily tied together. Perhaps meeting an evolved Axew, I think it would be interesting if Ash took Scraggy with him and caught seven or so new Pokemon. Keeping that
inglorious little bastard in rotation would be nice, plus if rumors are correct Scraggy would have a nasty double weakness to Fairy-type which is of the second gym and it'd be an interesting obstacle to overcome. Yeah, I'm advocating for Scraggy to return because he's my favorite of Ash's Unova team.
I think the Johto style of things is much too awkward and disrupts the screen time the newer Pokémon need a lot. I think if Ash brings a Pokémon with him then he's either going to get a sudden new capture extremely late, or one of his current weaker Pokémon are getting a gen VI evolution. If the latter happens it'll be a first because Snorlax and Glalie are the only Pokémon to get new evolutions in their families, and neither of them can evolve into those. Apart from maybe Gible I think everyone else has at least been in rotation for a long enough time, so we probably won't be seeing something like Phanpy anytime soon.
So I think Ash will travel with just Pikachu and Kalos Pokémon at the start. Whether or not he wants to rotate older Pokémon for the League or post-League is anyone's guess.
Wasn't Phanpy also quite a late capture in Johto? He didn't get a whole lot time in his original run, let alone have a chance to evolve, which may be what compelled them to give him another chance following a substantial break.
Then again, I do remember there being some speculation that Gible would go to Unova, on account of his being such a late capture in Sinnoh, and due to Iris's love of dragons, and well, we're still waiting. :p
Piplup and got to shine at the league. There was no real reason for Gible to stay with Unova's emphasis on new elements and Gible's character being maxed out. The only sort of change in Gible's character that could be had was evolution, but we all know that opportunity doesn't happen for a lot of Ash's Pokemon. Phanpy only came back for BF because it was a filler arc and got pretty mundane treatment screen time regardless. Nope, Boldore and Unfezant got around the same amount of screen time in all of BW that Gible got in the near end of DP.
Obey the Emperor!
If one or some of Ash's Pokémon get an evolution in XY, then probably one of them will join him in Kalos at a certain point. Otherwise, I doubt so.
Signature in progress... please wait.
