"Tis an honor to be recognized."
I think the last time we had a celebrity cameo like this was during one of the movie filming episodes (I think in XY?) except it wasn't promoted like this one.
Yes. The Pikachu movie short episode.
It's kind of sad they don't promote one of the biggest VA contributors over a show host...
GenIV: Lucario? Nope.
GenV: Zoroark? Nope.
GenVI: Phantump? NOPE!
GenVII: Lycanroc? FINALLY!
Lucario was such a tease, but unfortunately, there were too many people owning one that it would be repetitive with Ash having one. (I'm expecting them to make changes to a certain SM character just to shove Lucario down our throats again...) That Riolu episode in Sinnoh just SCREAMED Ash getting one. (Then Iris suffered that syndrome multiple times).
Zoroark pretty much failed after its movie was over. Not even anime!N had a Zorua. The hell?
Phantump... Wait, why is Phantump popular?
We're not at Lycanroc yet, sadly...
