It's kind of surprising that he doesn't make as much appearances anymore despite being at Oak's lab. It seems they only bring back Oak, Delia and Mimey for appearances when Johto/AG/DP treated him as a member of Ash's Pallet Town supporting cast.
I don't think Hugh will ever show up, but if they rework his character into something similar down the line (like Silver ---> Paul), it would be cool. The obvious semantics are what team would he have a vendetta against, and how his and Ash's storyline would collide. Team Rocket would be...
Yeah, there's really no reason to bring in Silver when Paul exists.
Unless they ever do want to explore Giovanni's lineage. Then maybe Silver would be cool, but even then you could just retcon Paul and Reggie as sons of Giovanni (if they aren't already Brandon's or whomever's).
I don't really think Brock is a creep. I've never seen him as anything other than over-the-top in love when he's sees a woman he likes, but for the most part it remains his version of flirting. Someone like Conway is more of a creep.
I think it has to do with this more than anything else. Tracey as Oak's assistant should be so easy to include in the Pallet Town or Oak focused episodes, but they probably dont want to pay the VA just for Tracey to say a few a lines in an episode.
Hope we will get a Tracey cameo in the SM...
If they do, they have got to find a way to reduce the amount of fillers or write more entertaining ones. A lot of them feel bland and recycled. Also we can't go back to Team Rocket trio being the crutch for every filler plot like in late Johto through BW.
Lol now it's been another year on top of that. Sorry haven't gotten on the site in a while, but time flies really quick!
I'm doing well. In college with a bunch of work, but I'm managing. How about you?
Ayy how's it going? Sorry for not responding sooner. Dude I haven't been on in a while (kinda fell out of Pokemon a little because I got burnt out with the anime).
It's a blast from the past coming on and remembering all the threads we used to post on. What have you been up to these days?
The ones used in Sinnoh weren't necessarily the most popular, some of the where used just because they were from Johto and it was meant as a tie-in for the 2nd gen remakes.
I do want to see Ash use his old reserve Pokemon. Seeing them again would be amazing, especially ones like Kingler or Muk...
