High there folks! I'm not doing my usual 1001 VGS this time, but instead something a little interesting I was thinking about. So Sun and Moon has come and gone, and so far has received a very warm reception. So it's no surprise that we are ready for the next game for this generation. Right now we don't know what Game Freak has in-stored for us. Either it will be the Diamond and Pearl remakes were anticipating, or a possible sequel to Sun and Moon.
Gen VI has been pretty controversial for the fact it didn't have a Pokemon Z, like a lot of people were excepting. This left X & Y feeling unfinished, and is the reason why it's considered by many to be the weakest games in the series. So a lot of people are hoping Game Freak won't pull the same stunt like they did last gen because, while Sun and Moon were great, there some improvements that it needs. Either a remake of the first, or a sequel, Sun and Moon definitely deserve to have a third game in it's respective gen. So this brings up to the topic I wanted to discuss: If the supposed third game is to be a sequel to Sun and Moon, how will the champion battle go?
Since Sun and Moon were anniversary titles, I think it would be fitting if the original protagonists of Sun and Moon were the champions of the sequel games. Taking perhaps two years after Sun and Moon, Sun/Moon are a little older now, and are still the champions of Alola. So it should be no surprise that when you get to the Champion's throne room at the top of the league, you'll find Sun/Moon sitting on the throne, waiting for your challenge. This would be a great throwback to the final battle against Red in Pokemon Gold and Silver. Also depending on which protagonist it is, it could depend on which version your playing, if theres two sequel games. One could have Sun(the male protagonist), while the other has Moon(female) as the champion. Or, they could bring back the memory link feature from Black2 and White2, so that not only would the champion be the gender you chose, but will also be wearing the same clothes your original playable character was wearing in the first two games.
But now lets get to the real meat of this article: What should there teams be? Well first; perhaps it could be the team you had in the first two games? If you could download your original character's looks with the memory link, then why not your original team as well? Now I'm not sure if the levels will be kept, because that would be disastrous if your original team's levels were 100. But I suppose they could nerd the levels down to the upper 60's the first time around. But If you didn't have any data from the first games, then here's what I suggest could be the default team the champion could have.
Right off the bat, half the team should be made up by the Alola starters; Decidueye, Inceniroar, and Primarina. This would make a great homage to Red's team in Gold and Silver, since he also had the three starters from his region. Also I think depending on which starter you choose in this sequel game, the starter on the champion's team that's strong against yours, will have their special Z-Crystal.
For the remaining three, I think Lycanroc would make a good addition. While it could depend on the version that determine which form, I think Midday form would be the best because of it's fantastic speed. Next up I think a Snorlax would also be a great addition to the team, as a massive tank and powerhouse. And finally, the choice for the last slot would be… controversial. I think what should be the champion's last, and strongest pokemon is either a Solgaleo or a Lunala depending on the version. Now normally something like this shouldn't be suggested since they are legendary, and no pokemon league to date have used legendaries. But think about it, Sun and Moon had broken quite a few traditions in the usual formula. also, while it would be a hard battle, it won't be impossible. After all, Sun and Moon are a little harder than usual. This would make the battle all the more epic, and the victory more satisfying. This could also work in the story. The Solgaleo/Lunala the champion uses is actually Nebby, and sometime after the main storyine, The Champion is reunited with Lillie and they give her Nebby. From then on another pokemon would take Nebby's spot. I'm not sure which pokemon though...
So that's the idea I wanted to put out. To whom reads this; what do you think? Would this be a good idea IF they make a sequel to Sun and Moon? Do you have any better ideas for what the team should be like? I'd like to hear you opinion in the comments down below. Thank you for taking time to read this, and have a nice day!
