Pokemon Rejuvenation Elite 8 and Champion Predictions (As of V12)


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

This is my first forum post so sorry if it isn't perfect ūüôā

 

I wanted to discuss the upcoming Elite 8 and champion in Pokemon Rejuvenation. I wanted to vocalize my thoughts on what characters will most likely fill these roles and explain why. 

 

 

Elite 8:

 

Zumi confirmed that as of v12, we have only seen 6/8 of the Elite 8 on screen and only 4 before v10:

12347760_@Zumi-Discord6_3_202011_21_35AM(2).thumb.png.6aa7be5dc8cd46dc8a067b50c609796c.png

 

It is confirmed in game that Tesla, Karen, and Jolene (Volta's mother) are all Elite 8 members. These are currently the only characters that we know for sure are Elite 8 members. 

 

Tesla:

 

Tesla is one of the first characters we encounter in Aevium and specializes in fire types. To my knowledge, the only known members of her team are her Talonflame and the Charizard that Venam stole.

 

Karen:

 

Karen's team consists of Diancie, Carbink, Vespiquen, and Persian. I don't remember if she has any other mons that she uses as part of her side quest in v12. A common theme around her team is that all the mons learn power gem... Which leads me to think she is mainly a rock type specialist with some outliers. Other pokemon on her team are likely to be Starmie, Ampharos, Slowking, or Mismagius as all of those mons learn power gem as well and aren't terrible.

 

Jolene:

 

We currently don't know much about Jolene's team other than that she specializes in electric type pokemon. She is one of 2 of the Elite 8 members that we first encounter post v10. She is gives us the Empoleon Crest as a reward upon completion of her side quest in v12. She is also the head reporter for Gearen News.

 

Elite 8 (Continued):

 

There are currently 2 Elite 8 members pre v10 and 1 e8 member post v10 that isn't confirmed.

 

Here are my thoughts on the possibilities of the characters from v10 and before being in e8:

Note: Only there are only 2 other characters pre v10 in the Elite 8 

 

Rorrim B:

 

Rorrim B makes sense as an Elite 8 member because he is a character that we get introduced to early. He serves no real purpose in the story. I see him potentially being a more prominent character in v13+ but it is unlikely. If he were to be an Elite 8 member, he would most likely have a dance based team and probably specialize in flying/bug with a couple outliers. When discussing the possibility of Rorrim B being e8 in the community discord, Zumi gave us a hit towards what Rorrim B's purpose will be: 800474095_pokemon-rejuvenation-Discord6_3_20202_36_52PM(2).thumb.png.5f0e68727a1fa3582618b4b6d35b10d5.png1906026264_pokemon-rejuvenation-Discord6_3_20202_38_00PM(2).png.ec447681d626f60b602ceb26f83a2518.png

 

Interpret this as you will, but I see this as proof that he will not be an Elite 8 member.

 

Karrina: 

 

Karrina is definitely an interesting character to talk about. We see her in the very beginning of the story as a small gang leader. We later come to find out that she has the power to grant us access to West Gearen. Finally, we come to realize that she is in fact a storm chaser. It's cool to see her develop as a character throughout the story. We come to learn about her back story and about how Karen killed her parents in front of her. This is important because she tries to get stronger in order to avenge her parents' deaths and put an end to Karen once and for all. With the Pokemon League in shambles because of the whole "Amanda situation," it is likely that Karrina is able to pick up an Elite 8 position... She has proved her strength multiple times in the past and it will add for some good character development to see both her and Karen in the Elite 8. It was stated in the game that Karrina was looking for Karen for a while to get revenge. This supports my theory on how she could pick up an Elite 8 position in the future, but does not currently have one. In v12 we were able to have a 6v6 battle with her and she doesn't seem to have a specific themed team. Her current team is Musharna, Durant, Alakazam, Nidoking, Granbull, and Fearow. I feel that she will be vital in the story later in the game, but I think we can successfully rule her out as a member of the Elite 8 unless she changes her team up a bit.

 

Rune:

 

As you all probably know, Rune is Huey's sister and Rhodea and Lavender's roommate. Apparently she has a dark secret that would upset Huey. Flora was Rune's only friend until Flora told Rune that she was the leader of Bladestar and asked her to join. Rune refused and Flora blackmailed her into keeping the secret. She vanished into thin air without a trace. We don't know much about Rune or her pokemon, but it is easy imagine her being an Elite 8 member because of this. However, given the small amount of information currently available about Rune, I feel it is fair to rule her out of being an Elite 8 member for now.

 

Dylan:

 

Dylan is an interesting character to say the least. He was abused by his grandfather which caused him to leave Kristiline and move to Grand Dream City. His grandfather helped him run a fishing competition and we see Dylan use a Gyrados in order to fend off Ana from Bladestar in his house. Dylan also told us that his life was going well at one point, but then gave all his money to charity and moved into the Underground. But later in the story, he gives Ana $30k to spend on things in Kristiline and when Ana is shocked about the amount of money she was given, Dylan says, "Huh? It's only 30k. Don't sweat it." Where does Dylan get this money from if he gave all his money to charity and does not have a job to our knowledge? Mabye he's getting a pay check from the pokemon league? Finally, when Ana gets to act in Risa's movie in Pokestar Studios, Dylan is in disbelief and says:

 1849078335_PokemonRejuvenation6_3_20205_37_19PM.png.dcd42a704d40693fe2e1d0af3a6db391.png

 

This is relevant because he said this in disbelief and acted like it was a dream of his, but he did not have that position. Because of these 3 facts, I feel like it is safe to assume that Dylan is an Elite 8 member specializing in water types. This also makes sense based on his character sprite because he has blue hair, relating to water type pokemon.

 

Nastasia:

 

When asking around in the community discord about possible Elite 8 members the name Nastasia popped up a few times. Nastasia is the highest ranking member of Team Xen after Madame X. Nastasia's reason for joining Team Xen are unknown and Madelis even asked Nastasia why she trusts Madame X so much, as Nastasia appears to have nothing on the line. I personally, do not see Nastasia being a member of the Elite 8 as Jan would never accept them into the league (but who knows what happened with Amanda as league scout). With Robo-Amanda out of the way, I highly doubt Jan seeing Nastasia on the list of Elite 8 members will result in her keeping that position. A cool think to note though is that Nastasia inherited Rejuvenation Co. from her mother and that is the location of the Team Xen base in modern time. The only member of Nastasia's team that we are aware of is Deoxys and I will explain why there is a better candidate for the psychic type Elite 8 position.

 

Nim/Lorna:

 

Nim is a likely candidate to be an Elite 8 member (other than the fact that she is literally a weapon that turns people to stone). We watched her develop as a character throughout the story from being a friendly obnoxious girl to being the shell of a human she is now, torn apart and brainwashed by Crescent to do her bidding. I feel like Nim has the potential to be a member of the Elite 8, but I do not think she will make the cut because we fought her multiple times throughout the story. I am not ruling it out as a possibility that she could potentially be an Elite 8 member (As I thought the Lorna battle in zone zero was much harder than the puppet-masters gym battle) but she feels more like a rival character than an Elite 8 member. Her team as of v12 is Aromatisse, Vivillon, Darmanitan, Marowak, Sylveon, and Solrock/Lunatone Fusion. Once gen 8 gets added in v13, I can see her with a Hatterene or Grimsnarl, but thats a topic for another day.

 

Crescent:

 

Crescent, Crescent, Crescent... Top of the food chain. Why think Nim will be Elite 8 if you can just go to her superior. I believe Crescent will be an Elite 8 member. We haven't battled her yet (unlike Nim) and I can't use the same excuse I used on Nastasia because Crescent is not on the opposing side as the main character. Crescent actively looks to put an end to Team Xen just like us. Her motives are unknown and her actions are unconventional, but its what gives her depth as a character. Crescent is more powerful than Nim and has so much power that she even brought us back from the dead. Not much is known about Crescent's backstory other than she seems to have known Nancy. Crescent is also a Storm Chaser so it is likely that she is able to have a position in the Elite 8. To my knowledge, the only known member's of Crescent's team is Mewtwo, Gothitelle, and Solosis (Zetta).

 

Elite 8 post v10:

 

Hazuki:

 

In my mind, Hazuki Blakorey has to be the only character that will fit this position. Melanie is really the only other potential candidate, but she currently just exists as part of Melia's imagination. It makes sense for Hazuki to be an Elite 8 member as she is currently the last original storm chaser that is alive in the present. Hazuki is seen with what appears to be an Aegislash hinting that she will be either a steel or ghost specialist. Steel is very unlikely considering her granddaughter is the steel type gym leader. Hazuki being a ghost specialist makes sense because similar to Narcissa, Hazuki was not loved by Thomas and like Narcissa was not loved by Sirius. Sirius and Thomas both married Narcissa and Hazuki in order to use them for power. In turn, they both turned to ghost types for comfort.

 

 

Conclusion:

 

Based on the possible Elite 8 members I have provided, the 6 that I feel most likely fit the role are:

 

Tesla/Karen/Dylan/Crescent/Jolene/Hazuki

 

 

Champion:

 

There are 2 Characters I want to discuss regarding the Champion position.

 

 

Alexandra:

 

I was holding off talking about Alexandra as a potential Elite 8 member because I feel that she is the most likely character that will become Champion. One of the main reason's I believe Alexandra to the Champion is that she feels the need to constantly change her name, first going by April when we meet her in Amethyst Cave, then going by Krystal when we meet her on our was to Grand Dream City. Another reason is the fact that on the train to Grand Dream City, Venam rants to Alexandra about how the Champion should be protecting the region and not doing nothing. Alexandra kind of just agrees with her, not trying to start an argument. This small detail is important because it means that Alexandra either knows the Champion or is the Champion herself. Alexandra is a direct decedent of Nymeria which could also provide evidence for her inheriting the highest position in the Pokemon League. The only part of her team we know about as of v12 is Latias.

 

Madame X:

 

Madame X is the most powerful character we met so far in the story. She is the leader of Team Xen, saved us from death, and even was once in possession of the Time Diamond. It is likely for Madame X to be the acting champion battle, but I doubt it because I feel that the plot with Team Xen will be resolved before the Elite 8. Keep in mind, we do not know who Madame X is behind her mask, so she could very well be one of the characters I previously listed. The only part of her team we are aware of is her Yveltal that we fought at Blacksteeple Castle.

 

~~~

 

That is the end of my predictions for the Elite 8 and Champion. If you guys have any other opinions or want to provide any further insight on these characters it would be much appreciated ūüôā¬†

I think Rorrim B definitely has a chance of being an Elite 8 member.

 

Another thing I read somewhere (might've been in a previous version status thread) is that you don't fight them all at once. You fight the initial four and they are the only people who know where the league actually is. Then you go to the league and fight the second four. My theory is that Karen belongs to the first category and Tesla to the second.

 

I also think Jan could be the champion.

I assume that dylan and hazuki are 99% safe, if i remember correctly dylan refuses to battle ana bec he would be too strong for her and says we should battle her instead. This is at the point where we already have like 13 badges so he seems to be reaaally strong then. And for hazuki it would just fit perfectly, when saki her granddaughter is already gymleader and she is a e8 member.

 

Other characters i could think of are

1. risa raider

Tuff puff is really strong, and she defeated melia 3:0 in the tornament. Before v12 i was also 99% sure of her being a e8, but now not anymore bec of the possibility that risa = freya, even if i'm still not that sure aboit that theory.  

 

2. Rhodea

We havent seen much of her till now but could also be a possibility, but not that likely maybe.

 

 

Rorrim b as an e8 is an interesting guess, that would explain why he get so much love from the devs even if he just appears for 1 Battle and is then off again.

Man, I don't know how I feel about Rorim. I want the crazy old disco dad to go big but I feel like if he actually was an E8 member it'd be way too shoehorned in. 

 

Dylan seems likely although his story seems to lend more towards the fact that he might be former E8. He feels like someone who's already made it big and has settled down. 

 

Alexandra as champion also definitely makes sense. Besides the chatter she had with Venam where Venam basically trash talks the champion of the region, Ren also mentions that she's crazy strong. Even at 12 badges, her abilities at that time supposedly far out class ours. 

 

Random thought on Nim/Lorna. What if she was some sort of filler E8? If Alexandra is the champion, she could potentially have the sway for that. Alexandra wants to keep an eye out on Nim/Lorna, so even if N/L is more of a rival type, they still have the E8 position just by virtue of connections. If the league is challenged infrequently enough, then it wouldn't be an issue. So by end game she may experience enough to grow into a legitimate full fledged E8 member. How that would work with everything that's going on is beyond me, but it's a thought.

 

Karrina would also be interesting due to her dynamic with Karen as was mentioned earlier too. I feel as if at least one spot is going to be filled at the last minute.

I agree with your 6 main choices, maybe Karrina instead of Crescent
Don't read what is under this line, if you didn't finish a certain sidequest with Karen in V12.

Spoiler

What is interesting in case of Karrina AND Karen being part of the elite four, is what would happen if you decide to kill one or both?

The reason I did not include Jan as being a potential champion is that with the whole robo-Amanda situation, the league is in shambles at the moment and Jan is busy trying to fix all of that. Also, it seems out of place for Jan to be Champion just because he is the lead developer. It seems not likely due to the fact that we not really interact with Jan much other than the very start of the game, and him being the one who gives us details on most of the gym leaders before the battle. There are so many characters that fit the champion role better in my opinion, but anything is possible so it is definitely a possibility.

Both Risa and Rhodea were on my mind as potential Elite 8 members. However, I decided to not include them on the list but I guess there is some chance that they could be so I will state my reasoning:

 

Risa:

 

When I was asking around the community discord for any thoughts about potential Elite 8 members, Risa's name popped up a few times. I decided not to include her because she seemed busy enough as it is. Risa stated that she was a full-time actor, cheerleader, student at Axis High University, and a movie director. I do not doubt that she has a really important role in v13+. There also was the whole situation of her being terminally ill, but somehow was cured which we are yet to get an explanation for. In conclusion, I felt Risa belonged on this list, but is way too busy to leave her life behind in Grand Dream City just to be a member of the Elite 8. Risa is also the vain/arrogant type, so we could assume that if she did have a position in the Elite 8, she would have made that clear to us, or we would have found out from another source. No doubt though, that Risa is hiding secrets from us and it will be interesting to see her develop as a character in the upcoming versions.

 

Rhodea:

 

Rhodea also feels like she could potentially be an elite 8 member, but again, she does not seem likely to be one of the two unknown characters that were encountered prior to v10. We know that Rhodea is the community director/official in charge of part of Grand Dream City and to me, it did not seem likely that she would also be an Elite 8 member as well considering she is one of the people in charge of the biggest city in the Aevium region.

Sooo let's try and order my thoughts really i am usually not all that good at that

Tesla, Karen, Jolene:
not much to add here
we know they are E8 as we were outright told about that part
Jolene is interesting as she specifically said she was a honoary E8 member, whether that means anything different about her or the E8 position is just honoary in general, is unknown, but it might be worth keeping in mind
another thing is even Tesla and Jolene don't necessarily need to be Type specialists, while their titel/name ect. do imply as much they can very well have more expansive or more specialised themes

Rorrim B:
my thoughts just so happen to be included in that screenshot already
Rorrim B currently mainly functions as comic relief and has been beaten twice before, he just doesn't strike me as the type for E8, and before someone goes: "BUUUUUT FALI, bennet is going to be part of the E4 in reborn, and he got beat twice aswell!" well first of we don't know if he ultimatley keeps the E4 position (though i find it likely) and secondly bennet was told to have heavily trained and been mentored in the meantime, both of those things i don't see Rorrim B doing at all (guy just wants to DANCE)

Karrina:
Soo this one is curious, i think we can agree that she definetly doesn't start the game as part of the E8, considering her and Karen's relationship, at the same time that "whole league is in shambles because of Amanda" argument really doesn't pull for me on the E8, the Elite generally feel more established in a region than most gym leaders, and i ultimately don't see Amanda getting to those that quickly (also would be incredibly inefficient to even try putting Elites out of commision, seeing as most people in aevium don't even make it to the E8 under normal circumstances, let alone with the sabotaged league), more importantly we don't know that Amanda affected the E8, so it's an assumption that can be made, but i personally would contest the likelyhood of it, which ultimately makes me question all E8 arguments that rely on them being new inclusions.

Rune:
we know fuck all about her, next!

Dylan:
Dylan is to be perfectly honest basically confirmed, one of his interactions (on Route 9, i think when he gifts A.N.A the magnemite) mentions that he has achieved a high position due to his battle ability, and he generaly acts in the underground (a rather dangerous area, if you go against the people there) as if no one could possibly touch him, even keeping A.N.A safe, despite the danger that would put him in, implying very high confidence in himself and his power to protect her. Strong likelyhood if not garantied to be E8

Nastasia:
I was one of the people that brought up Nastasia, so let me explain: Nastasia clearly is a powerful Trainer swatting Gym Leaders like Crawli aside as if they were nothing, additionally we have yet to battle her, the only Xen Higher-Up that is the case for. As for the complaint of her being a known xen-member, i have to ask... is she? Xen Executives seem to be able to just walk around without any worry to be recognized by the authorities, Nastasia especially also constantly is wearing rather big obscuring shades (now you may bring up those wouldn't hide her identity, and in the real world, you'd be sorta right, but this game runs on anime logic more often than not, where "disguises" like that tend to work)
either way i myself admitted it to be an oddball pick, bit i don't find it as unlikely as you are making it out to be. Also we know a few more Pokemon that she could be using, her younger self Anastasia was using Castform, starmie and porygon, while those don't exactly make a team, it's something to note

Edit: i just remembered something regarding this: Nastasia after beating Crawli in sheridan wetlands, says something along the lines of: "you are a gym leader? their standards really must have dropped." this line is interesting, because it implies previous experience with the league's recruitment standards.

Nim:
Another New addition Theory.... let's just move on, i really don't think Nim is a candidate, she has a much different role

Crescent:
I fucking hate that i can't disprove this one, i DON'T LIKE THIS IDEA, i really don't, yes crescent is supposedly powerful, she has a type based team yadda yadda, but 1. i don't find being a type specialist to be a crucial feature, 2. considering Crescents general Agenda, i just don't see it just character wise. Crescent clearly has big plans, manipulating Various events, to get something she wants (we don't know that something) what we do know about that is that she needs us in the region for actual reasons beyond sentimentallity (as people suggest a lot) due to her being the one that made nancy move us to Aevium in the first place (despite crescent knowing very well what is happening in that region), we also know that her interests aren't alligned with any known faction, she openly opposes team Xen, she left the stormchasers, she doesn't even care about bladestar, she actively manipulated both the player and nim away from Melia (with varing success) lying through her teeth, while doing so all the time..... okay i got kinda sidetracked.... E8! given crescents time jumping and grandios plans, i just don't see Crescent seeing a postion in the E8 as worth her sweet time, even if she had infinite time due to time-jumping.

Hazuki:
Well what to say? Hazuki Blakeory is a former Protector of Aevium, aligned with Registeel, she most likely isn't lacking in the Battle skill department. I really don't see why Saki being the Steel leader rules out Hazuki being a Steel specialist, wouldn't even be the first instance of a family shared type speciality, see Tesla and Amber, and in some respects  Aelita and Keta (Aelita's team pre Chapter 14 is mostly fighting type), in fact i'd argue making it more likely for her to be Steel type, (family influence and all) especially considering her association (possibly former?) with Registeel. But yes, she is currently an E8 candidate for me

Risa Raider:
I'm gonna put my thoughs here in a spoiler tag, because YES
 

Spoiler

Are we arguing her to be E8 based on her Tuff-Puff *cough* NAGANADEL *cough* being Powerful? HHAHAHAHAHAH
okay real talk, her Tuff-Puff has the stats, moveset, held item, and was meant to have the ability of a Naganadel, which character do we know that uses a Naganadel
yes Redheaded Timesurfer (i'm not calling her Freya, there are points for and against that being her name, and it's not confirmed either way, so no)
would she care to be E8? fuck no, like imo crescent she has more important things to do
also her mysterious terminal illness that was sudenly cured? Isha covering up the real Risa Raider dying to it by letting Redhead impersonate her, his Ego would absolutely lead him to do that, and he works with Team Xen anyway
so no Risa is absolutely not E8


Rhodea:
It's possible but i don't see it, not really much to say here

so in conclusion my current lineup is:
Karen, Tesla, Jolene, Nastasia, Dylan, Hazuki

Alexandra subs in for Nastasia if Alexandra isn't the Champion, simply because the conversation with Venam on the train implies her knowing the Champion, which would make her something in the League, either the Champion herself or an E8

Jenkel... hm. I guess? It could be.

Also, I remember something about Dylan - he said when you fought Ava that you would be less likely to win than he is, or something like that. Considering your team should be around level 80 at that point, I think that's just more support for him being an Elite 8 member.

OH! New idea for an Elite 8 member! What about... the Eldest? Cella? She definitely has the age - and we've never seen her participate in a Pokemon battle yet. Granted, that may be my memory betraying me, because I haven't played through Rejuvenation in a while.

And for a slightly cracky idea, could Piano Lady be an Elite 8 member?

(The last two ideas were dragged up by me going through the Rejuvenation Characters page on Tv Tropes).

How about V since we encounter her around the same time as we start the ana quest and it could further tie into Dylan

Do we ever actually see V though?

V is an interesting guess, i don't think we have seen her yet, only people talking about her.

Only thing that we know is that she works with bladestar but is not directly part of it. 

V is most likely not her real name and she seems to be a character who works from the background  so it could also make sence that she has a high position like e8, but also is a member of an evil team like bladestar bec only a few people know who she really is.

 

Idk if she really fits for an e8, maybe we continue the discussion about her when we finally get to see her in v13 or later.

 

 

Ah and about piano girl being an e8 member. Thats actually also a theory i had some versions ago. But right now i dont think so anymore, i think if she really was that important we would see her more often, i dont remember if we ever saw her again after fleeing from the prison.

She shows up with Patty at that Caffe in GDC.

Here are my thoughts on both the Paino Lady and Cella...

 

NO

 

In my opinion these characters would absolutely not work as elite 8 characters.

 

Eldest/Cella: 

 

Cella would not work as an elite 8 member because we know from WLL and the whole Sheridan arc that Cella's only job is to be an advisor to the sensei. She is pretty much required to be in Sheridan at all times. This is further proven when Keta dies and there isn't a new sensei until Texen (who later loses the title because of the MC and Aelita). The Eldest needs to stay in Sheridan at all times in order to act as the leader of Sheridan until Aelita is finished with her journey and able to act as Sheridan's sensei. Even then, the Eldest needs to be in Sheridan and act as Aelita's advisor (assuming she will still be alive by the time the MC makes it to the pokemon league).

 

Paino Lady:

 

I'm pretty sure it is confirmed that the Paino lady only has a Jigglypuff. She only exists as a meme character who became somewhat relevant because she saved Nancy and us on the SS oceania by dropping a paino on deoxys. We see her next at Blacksteeple Castle and she has been forgotten by the guards and we take her cell. If the Paino Lady was a strong enough trainer to be an Elite 8 member, she would save us on the SS oceania with her pokemon and not a paino. Also, if she had importance, Neved and the other guards at Blacksteeple would not forget about her, as she would be a threat. She would not be able to be left un-monitored for enough time so that she could dig a whole cave to live in and be noticed.

I just hope it's revealed that there is no champion yet because no one finished the league thanks to constant sabotage and incompetence.  XD

That's a better plot twist than Reukra in Pokémon Insurgence.

ngl I hope Crescent is an E8 just so I can cheese the fuck out of her with Crest bastiodon and lots of full restores. and when she manages to kill Bastiodon and my other team Surprise crest Spirittomb BITCH

 

I all seriousness, Im not all against Rorim B being an e8 member, albeit he probably doesn't take it seriously.

the guy that lives in the toy box in the nightmare GDC (for got his name forgive me) could be one.

 

thats all i got

So me and the crew in the #Rejuvenation channel spent like an hour wracking our brains on guesses. Gonna grave bump this to shove the entire thought process here. 

 

 

Points of Reference

We met 4 of these 6 members pre-V10. V10 ends at Souta. This leaves 2 members to be met after V10. 

 

We know that 3 out of 6 members are Tesla, Karen and Jolene. [Known]

 

Tesla and Karen are characters we've met and known since the beginning of the game. While we know of Jolene, we only meet her personally after Souta(in the Evergreen Trench).

 

This drops the unknowns to 3 characters. 2 of these characters we've met pre-V10, and 1 of them we've met post-V10.

 

Predictions

 

Pre-V10

 

We first meet Dylan in the Aquamarine Cave. Ana's Quest which he also has a prominent role in starts before V10 ends. It's heavily hinted that Dylan is a rather powerful trainer who's made it big with his battling skills. That's definitely E8 material. 

 

The other empty slot for pre-V10 is a hard guess at best. 

 

My personal thoughts head towards Nastasia due to how powerful she is, only having ever lost to the MC's Mother, and how she absolutely destroys Crawli before making the comment about the league's standards. There's also the fact that she was incredibly powerful when she was also incredibly young, giving her a good amount of time to take the position before becoming involved with Team Xen.

 

Some people would also like to suggest that it's Crescent. She's powerful, and the role could benefit her agenda(the E8 isn't challenged much, and it probably grants its members many unique privileges). 

 

There's also speculation on Karrina potentially taking Karen's spot in the future if certain choices in the story are chosen. This would weird out the count, since then we'd technically have yet to meet 3 other E8 members, rather than just 2, but it's possible.

 

There's no other notable characters that I think you can heavily point it towards.

 

Post-V10

 

There's only one slot available in this part of the current timeline and as it so happens, there's only one notable character that we meet in this section that could fit the role.

 

Hazuki. The list of notable characters we meet post-V10 is pretty short, short enough that I think we can basically narrow it down to Hazuki. We know Hazuki is powerful and that she is Registeel's chosen. We don't know much else about her, but with the information given, it's probably safe to assume that it's her.

 

 

tldr; 

Tesla/Jolene/Karen are guaranteed, Dylan is heavily hinted at, and based on Zumi's description, Hazuki is almost guaranteed as well. Nastasia/Crescent/Karrina are probable unless it's some other wild card that no one thought of(like Rorim B. getting reworked into the role).
