Can we please get the older, old forum back?
Have you ever tried following a bird? No? Just saying that she will have lost track of it sooner rather then later and to reach Hoenn you'd also need to get on a boat at some point, by which time she would've definitely lost sight of it. Unless she hopped on Dragonite and flew after it - in which case she probably would've caught up before even leaving Johto.Iris was following Rayquazza, and if she didn't know about the Hoenn region at the time I think she found out about it after seeing the large dragon.
So no. Still isn't likely that she went to Hoenn. That's just fancanon. The likely conclusion is that she lost sight of Rayquaza rather quickly and that's it. If she'd ask native Johto citizens about a large dragon, they'd likely send her to the Whirl Islands, because they believed Lugia was a dragon. And if THAT wasn't the case, the more likely direction they'd point her to would be the Sinjoh Ruins, because that's also a place where there's a legend featuring big dragons as well that they might've heard about.
Okay, okay, explain why. And explain why he wouldn't capture an Impidimp, but has caught a Gengar this series.Impidimp as a species doesn't seem like the kind of Pokémon I can see Ash ever catching.
He probably has Kanto government subsidizing his researchprogram.Well he did buy a huge park to make it his lab so he must be quite rich
