A short appearence by Ho-Oh would've been better in my opinion, especially with the twentieth movie having it as the focus. Actually seeing Jigglypuff scribbling over everyone's faces after so long was nice too, including the Group having a good laugh about it. As for Tracey yeah he was a one off season character but as he's currently working for Oak meant that he Should've been in at least the grilling scene of the episode. Māmane and Togedemaru meet a Kanto Raichu with shocking results. The Mew bit at the end is also somewhat confusing, given aside from the first movie and Lucario and the Mystery of Mew Ash doesn't really have any significant connection to one. Now the episode is clearly focusing on just Kanto Pokemon, and. Ash Meets Misty and Brock in Kanto! Only for a little while though.
The gang from Alola have a grand time with their Pokémon seeing and interacting with their Kanto counterparts at Professor Ōkido's lab. Kaki races a Gallop on his Ride Lizardon and then rides it. Looks like it's beyond the power of your imagination. Kasumi and Takeshi are waiting for him at the airport, and Takeshi shows he hasn't changed as he first cares for Lilie's Shiron and then chases after a pretty flight attendant. Satoshi's herd of Kentauros naturally stampede on him, and he happily reunites with his Fushigidane and Betbeton. What would happen if one day, out of the blue, a meteoroid appeared? I can understand why the characters in-universe don't believe it, as they don't have proof themselves, but us players do have proof with the games themselves.
He's still technically Oak's assistant, and yet he wasn't even mentioned. He as of Sun and Moon has 70, 30 of which are his Tauros. Also yes kingler didn't make a cameo in the episode, no love for the lobster, Charazard was showed in the flashback so I guess he counts. Would probably watch this episode again and again. A Hoenn region that's almost exactly like this one we live in. As for Gary he's not in Kanto so how could he cameo.
Also as for Snorlax yeah was he was not in there as well. I know not many people have much liking for the guy, but even just mentioning that he's running an errand for Oak would've been nice to avoid feeling like the writers forgot about his existence. Rocket-Dan have also returned to Kanto on orders, and their latest and old-school plot to steal everyone's Pokémon using a giant mecha reunites the original trio as battling partners including Satoshi's Lugarugan, Kasumi's Hitodeman, and Takeshi's Crobat. However, the battle is once again interrupted by Kiteraguma wearing a jet-pack! Also, nice nods to the Dugtrio episode with Kiawe and Delia still designing Litten as her personal house cat like in the open day episode. There's also the problem that people are getting a bit sick of the Nostalgia coming in almost every year, so you'd end up making people sick of Misty and Brock coming back. I just wanted to point out that she never treated it as a theory, and if Game Freak wanted people to disregard it, then why would they include it? And about the existence of another world, which we have long observed to be just like this one and yet not the same. It's not a bad episode by any means and it was still fun to see, and next week's episode also promises to be fun and exciting that animation is some Gurren Lagann-tier stuff just like the last minute of the Olivia battle, which makes me hope we will finally have an entire battle completely at that level of animation.
Hopefully it will make up for some of this still fun, I repeat episode's shortcomings outside of offering a nice episode, and I look forward to see if Ash will manage to legitimately win his Cascade Badge this time around! Not really much to say about that. It's a theory she has in-universe and the characters chide her for dooming their planet for a possibility that has no solid proof. Mao and Amamaiko have an unfortunate interaction with a Kanto Ruffresia. But it may not be as innocent as it seems, and Ash and his friends will have to work together to protect the people and Pokémon they care about as they face a mysterious power like nothing they have ever seen. We saw cameos from 1 of his Johto team, 1 of his Hoenn team, and maybe 1 of his released pokemon. Along with their new friend and the rest of the students at the Pokémon School, Ash and Pikachu explore the Aether Foundation, an organization dedicated to Pokémon conservation and care.
It's a theory she has in-universe and the characters chide her for dooming their planet for a possibility that has no solid proof. Cut means they were going to be in it originally. The day ends with a magnificent outdoor feast prepared by Hanako and Barri-chan, spied upon by none other than Mew! None of these things had to be problems in Digimon either as the writing staff for the original Digimon Adventure series demonstrated, it only became problems because of poor writing. There's also the fact that the nostalgia also seemed misplaced at times given we see Pokemon that kinda come out of nowhere Ash's Squirtle is one of the few Pokemon Ash still technically owns that don't reside at Oak's ranch, though they bothered putting in the other members of the Squad so it can be assumed to just be visiting; similarly, while it's nice to see Pidgeot after everyone rags on how Ash forgot his promise to it to visit again, I woul've liked to see some Pokemon Ash actually owns still over one of the released ones. Yes Snorlax and Charizard are very important pokemon for Ash, but we've seen lots of them after he left Kanto. Will the strange Pokémon called Nebby help jog his memory? That and they did a small recreation of op 1 running scene with Rapidash and kawkis Charazard instead of Arcanine.
Bewear is amazing as always. I'm by no means burdened by any of the missing things in the episode liking sun and moon and the art style fits the many expressions given and the flexibility that the battle can show , as this episode in particular feels like a connection to both old and new of those in the series, but I also wished that it was a hour long special so that there would've been more details to the episode. Also, the chief director of the Anime explicitly said that the Ash of the current series is the same one of the past series and the twentieth movie is the first alternate continuity of the show in Anime form. While yes Gary's probably isn't in Kanto current whereabouts are Unknown there's an off chance that a small reference could've occured. A world where that war 3,000 years ago. And in that Hoenn of that world.
Filled with Pokémon and people like us. Description: Satoshi returns to Kanto with his friends, their Pokémon, Professor Kukui, and Principal Ōkido as part of a special school project about the differences between Kanto and Alolan Pokémon. Everything that's made in entertainment runs the risk of being bad for various reasons no matter the concept or idea, it just hurts more when it's related to nostalgic memories. When Ash sees the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala in a dream, he makes a promise to them. A world where the ultimate weapon was never even built. Misty and Brock being field instructors was brilliant to see, considering Oak knew Ash was returning. Though 2 of the 3 been in a lot of appearances so it's understandable.
