Satoshi, Go and Hikari are wearing the special Gablias kimono set, an exclusive Amazon.co.jp preorder bonus for "Pokémon Legends: Arceus".
Is what we see in their hands monster balls with an unfamiliar shape, made of wood...?

What is the Mythical Pokémon Arceus' role in the unusual events that have been occurring in the Sinnoh region?
The Legendary Pokémon Agnome, Yuxie and Emrit will appear as well.

There's really only 1 proper question about this special and it's if it's canon or not.

I would've preferred an Ash-free AU for story freedom and to make things different, but part of me figured they'd take this route anyway. I get the feeling Goh's going to catch some Hisuian Pokemon.

The chances of these episodes being dubbed to English are decent since they're hella promotional.
The question is if TPCI will count them as part of the Show or not... :confused:

AND HOLY CRAP TEAM GALACTIC'S COMING BACK?!?! :eek:

Yeah. An Ash-Free AU could be an thing. think of like Pokémon Adventures being adapted into Anime...

But to avoid the Off-Topic-ness, I'm here to talk about this special... What is Ash's Pokemon Team like in this special this time?

While I am happy they are going through with a time travel special the fact that captures might be off the table is extremely disappointing.

Though I question why there are holding Hisuian Balls to begin with

Well legend of Arceus is about competing the prototype of the pokedex as part of the Survey Team and I think they will give the pokémon they catch to team Galaxy. It would solve the non-canon issue some ppl have. Tho I rather have to see a movie around it

I really don’t think these episodes will be somehow disconnected from the series in any way. I also highly doubt we are gonna go four episodes without Goh taking every chance he can to catch Hisuian Pokémon.

Also bringing along Dawn who just so happens to have a Quilava on hand? Come on now lol

4 + 4 is 8 my friend
