Finally, something I'm actually excited for. Mewtwo was nice, I appreciate they went to the trouble of getting the original VA even if it didn't do much. But Suicune doesn't get nearly as much focus. It was so cool in Pokemon Crystal or maybe it was just extra cool because I was a young kid who hadn't really experienced this type of plot before. I don't even care if Go gets it, what matters is that we get to see Suicune.

Well technically it had 2 major roles in the movies and has the most appearances out of the entire Beast Trio.

True... they really should do something with Raiku, it got what, five seconds of solo screen time?

iirc Raikou never actually appeared in the main anime and only it's shiny (I think) appeared in the Zoroark movie, otherwise it only appeared in that little TR short
I think Raikou was in the episode where Togepi wandered away, it was there for like five seconds
 
I see they love their legendary episodes this series...heh...maybe Gou and Minaki? Gou is the researcher type and wants to get all Pokémon so obviously this will star him. Maybe Messon does something with it taking Hibanny’s shouldermon status?

I just hope this encounter bears fruit, Lugia lead no where, Mewtwo lead no where, Thunder lead no where. If even a character got Suicune that would give the episode some type of charm or substance. At this point we’re just treading over similar ground as the past encounters. It’s exhausting and indifferent-feeling, I wonder if these appearances are mandated as well?

I hope this is sobble focused. There was some drizzile merch recently. If they plan on giving goh a grookey then drizzile could be on its way, although this ciuld also be some kidn of eoisode where peoole have spotted suicuine so they go and investigate wnd it shows up in the end for a glimpse or something. I dont see it as part of a raid battle or anything

I want Suicune to be caught here, it isn't the-end-of-all Legend and would be great to finally see someone battle with it. The plot where Suicune roars and runs away at the end has been overused.

I assume this episode will take place in Johto, so maybe Tokio could appear here.
I just hope it isn't another "They find a legendary pokémon, battle with it, then they lose and the legendary runs away".
