Just now realized the connection here:
1st gen = Game Boy
2nd gen = Game Boy Colour/GB
3rd gen = Game Boy Advance
4th gen = DS
Yeah, and yet the actual games serve no implication whatsoever. Remember, the games come before the show. If anything, the games would dictate most of this. Regardless of the show/movie storyline.
Technically, Marill and Togepi still count... to an extent. Lugia still counts as 2nd gen, but we can ignore that in favor of other things.
Now that I think of it, movie 2 and 10-11 are the only ones that involve a "clash of the titans" concept. Is it just me, or do I sense a very awkward pattern about to form? Meh, probably just me.
Just a bit of thought here, does anyone think that the plates for Arceus will at all be used in this movie?
Oh yeah, the plate's will probably be used in his movie. I believe they will have a big role. They were also in the Unknown episode as well!
