Corphish might only come back if Ash decides to reunite the Hoenn team for something.
I actually wonder if that team will make comebacks the same way the Kanto team does, or if they'll wind up forgotten like the Johto team.
So far Bulbasaur/Squirtle/Charizard were used in every saga for some battles, but it remains to be seen if the Hoenn team will get the same treatment.
The way the writers neglected/ignored the Johto team since 2002 is really something, I sure hope that sad fate doesn't befall any of his other teams.
OK, there are odds that Torkoal(no evolution) may comeback and evolve, so why won't Corphish then? It's a powerhouse and it's the only one in the AG team that isn't fully evolved. (except Pikachu, of course) They may have the motive to make the AG team an almost perfect team. They bring back
Also, Phanpy(previous Gen at AG) in the side saga, so why won't they do the same if they will have a side saga again?
Really? When? And odds means odds.
i think that chimchar will be next to evolve, for sure :)
It missed a prime chance this arc, so I am worried about that.
Things went a bit faster back in Hoenn.
Snowpoint is an ice Gym so it really would be the perfect opportunity to spotlight Monferno.
I guess the most we can hope for now is Chimchar evolving in one of the eps before Snowpoint Gym. If it doesn't evolve by Snowpoint, then lol, Chimchar is screwed. :p
I have to say that I'm becoming concerned that neither Monferno or Staraptor are not going to show.
Ash got Chimchar in "Smells Like Team Spirit!" (DP052). The latest Japanese episode is at DP112. 60 episodes and NO Monferno. I'm starting to think Chimchar won't evolve as if to prove to Paul that it was strong already and it took Ash's love to show that. MAN, I hope I'm wrong because I've been waiting for Monferno forever now and I would be happy if it just evolves at this point.
The same goes for Staraptor. I'll be happy if just shows up at all now. I thought Hoenn prove that the Pokémon Producers aren't anti-evolution, but Sinnoh seems to be going back to their old ways again (Sigh).
Not evolving pikachu until lv.81 then releasing it, and use a pichu throught the elite 4(WITH VOLT TACKLE XD)
I'm thinking Chimchar will evolve within the next month, and then it'll go Infernape during Ash's League battle against Paul.
