Pokémon Master (Kinda)
I was disappointed that Ash used Pikachu in this battle instead any of his Pokemon at the lab.
He never says he doesn't remember his Charizard. Him mentioning it only creates expectations from older viewers that they're going to bring it back while creating needless exposition that doesn't get any pay-off for newer viewers.Which is apparently irrelevant to the writers to have him mention beyond his non-Kanto/Alola adventures to a strange point he doesn't remember his Charizard.
Why would he bring it up? There's no point to the story. All it would do is create expectations that aren't going to get any kind of remote payoff. The plot should focus on the future, not dig up long dead plot points Ash didn't even train himself.Well, duh. That would be insulting, but he never brings him up around Kiawe for some awesome Charibro moments...with Kiawe's Charigrandpa.
We did get a Zard vs Zard fight..........................Alain vs freaking TrevorToo bad we never saw a Charizard vs Charizard fight the last 2 series could've futon in.BUt this episode was still cool
She saw Ash doing some crazy things, but Brock saw Thunder Armor with his own eyesWhy would they need to be let in on that? At the time, none of them were planning on battling Ash. Misty was Ash's opponent, and she already knew the same thing Brock knew.
