The Anime/Special's canon know it all.
Hey it is last month ago.....and why is that we're still in December plot thread? I thought we should be getting a January one by now ?Then stop using this pseudo-wapanese only you alone understand. I'm being very serious here, nobody, not even a Japanese (I'm half Japanese, half Korean, and I don't care enough to prove that I am) understands what you are saying.
Also regardless, I hope he doesn't get a Pikachu. It's time for literally anything else to shine and another Pikachu is the last thing we need of a current arc protagonist.
