The filler in DP was carried by Piplup and Dawn.
Wasn't FemTwo created because OLM couldn't get Shudo Mewtwo, so it'd be useless to keep using her when they already got him.I don't think I've seen anyone mention this so far, but once Goh explains his goal of catching Mew to Iris, do you think the show will acknowledge the fact that there are two different Mewtwos in the anime's continuity?
Originally yes, that was the reason they created a 2nd Mewtwo. However having the movie 16 Mewtwo around when they can use the original Mewtwo isn’t useless since they can easily distinguish the two by having M16 Mewtwo Mega Evolve into Mega Mewtwo Y, while Original Mewtwo Mega Evolves into Mega Mewtwo X.Wasn't FemTwo created because OLM couldn't get Shudo Mewtwo, so it'd be useless to keep using her when they already got him.
Yeah, I deliberately left it out because I feel that battle was unconventional. Dragonite wasn't listening to Iris at all. It's like when Ash's Charizard lost to that Poliwrath on the Orange Islands cause it wasn't listening to Ash, but then defeated it when he was listening.
And I know the mirror match is confirmed, but I think having it be a 2 vs 2 isn't ruled out yet, right?
Iris' return isn't a special occasion in the same way those were since characters returning is a regular thing in Journeys, like in the same vain you could say that it's not fair that only one or two characters got to return in previous series compared to however many JN will end up having. It's just different situations. Multiparters have never been common in Pokemon so regardless of timeslot etc they most likely would've done a series with multiple cameos like this, shame Iris didn't get her time earlier but it is what it is I expect the same for Gary and other companions too.
Charizard didn't obey Ash at all against Poliwrath, where as Dragonite did obey Iris until Krokorok evolved and sent it crashing into a wall with dragon claw which caused it to snap thus causing Iris to lose control from that point.
i'm having a hard time seeing a 2 v 2 given the pictures we've gotten so far, not to mention there's bound to be time for interaction between Ash and Iris, Ash introducing her to Goh, and Goh's usual capture shenanigans.
unless it's a two parter I don't see it being more than 1 v 1 without there being rushing in the battle which I really don't want to see happen.
edit: and I just saw the next episode title...
Korrina was a 2vs2 but also one episode, dealiing with Go's screentime and Ash's tournament wins.
May and Dawn only came back as a package deal that promoted Wallace being the then-Hoenn Champion (because we went through all Hoenn without a single mention of Steven being the champion...for some reason) to promote Pokemon Emerald and Cynthia having a battle cameo in eastern Unova.
