The sun and moon trailer with Samson Oak shows a normal exeggutor turning into alola form, if the form change isn't permanent, what's everyone's opinion of TR's meowth changing to an Alola meowth? I'm wondering if the reason the developers chose meowth as one of the lucky few to get a new form is because of the anime's long standing affiliation with Meowth? I personally think it'd be quite a nice change to see meowth in it's new form, but as we still don't know everything about Alola forms, it could be a sometimes-used mechanic, furthermore we don't know if it will impact the series going forward, pokémon could potentially have no end, and I can imagine they'd have to switch meowth back to its normal form which means he could potentially have another form for a few years then it'd be forgotten about, yes we know the anime writers love to do that (gs ball?) but would it be good for his character to have a change in type? I could see a great episode where meowth does go alola but turning dark type suprisingly changes his personality to being really good because he's "dark enough already as a normal type" and the moral of the story will be don't change who you are, despite the fact the games will continue telling us to mess around with as many forms as possible. The promo photo for sun and moon makes me think jesse will end up with a Bewear, and james is likely to have caught a mimikyu (or they're just going to get chased by one a lot). If TR's meowth doesn't go alola, I'd like there to be an Alola meowth that either becomes a rival of meowths, or an ally. It would be pretty awesome if Ash caught an Alola meowth, which caused for constant cat fights, with TRs, but also I just get the sorta digimon vibe where TR's could change form instantly and as soon as Ash's meowth appears in battle TR's just runs in literally form changing at that moment to leap into battle with Ash's.... Likelihood close to none, but it's fun to dream. Any ideas on how Alola meowth will change the anime?
