Project Mew: Special Preview

OK, my comments about this preview:

+ I hope once this arc is over, the next arc will involve what we saw in the opening: Ash, Goh and Koharu traveling with Leon in his "Charicar".

+ The Frozen PokeBall seems to indicate someone will capture Regice, but who? All things considered, Ash and Goh may enter an arc where they fight and capture ALL the Regis? Including the new ones: Regidraco and Regieleki.

+ Well, it was about time they bring back Ash's old Pokemon from Oak's Lab. I don't know why Infernape joins Ash's team, but I hope he won't be the only one to return. After all, once in the Ultra Class, Ash could really use the power of his most veteran Pokemon. And I would like to see some of them returning to evolve, like Gible or Totodile. The Preview showed us Charizard and Snorlax, so I would like to see them back in action.
**I wonder if Goh will like to count Ash's Pokemon and compare them with his own. By my count, Goh already has more Pokemon than Ash between his current team, Oak's Lab and his Alola's team; but Goh still hasn't capture as many Pokemon as Ash has own.

+ I supposed Iris would wear her clothes as "Champion", but don't get wrong. The most logical thing is that Iris is just the new Gym Leader of Opelucid City, nothing more. I wonder where is drayden now. And by the look of it, even if it caught her by surprise, something tells me Iris will enjoy the hug from Ash's Dragonite.

+ It's quite interesting to see Ash's Infernape vs Moltres, but considering Fighting Types are weak against Flying Types, I don't think Infernape will win. It COULD won, however, if it was Charizard who faces Moltres.

+ I'm not sure, but it would appear that Ash's Dracovish will have an Ice Move against Iris' Dracovish. I wonder which one.

+ It calls my attention a lot that Ash is wearing a police's uniform in one of those scenes.

+ Finally, if this arc is about finding Mew, something tells me Ash and Goh will meet Mewtwo once more.
Great Observation and all the points are correct as based on the preview
I absolutely Agree with all the points

@Dephender Slightly off-shoot, but is the soundtrack that plays at 0:44 a part of the Series's OST that is released or yet to be, or is it a separate licensed track?

...that's the opening theme, 1, 2, 3.

I don't think it's that, unfortunately. The synopsis for the episode said something about Infernape being lost (gone from Oak's lab) and Ash goes to look for it and finds Gary on the way.
It's probably just one very eventful episode where they go to Oak's lab (don't know the reason), Ash meets with his old pokemon there, finds out Infernape's missing, they go look for him, meet Gary (who's likely looking for Moltres), find Infernape and fight Moltres together.

As much as I hope Infernape joins Ash at Sakuragi after this episode, like how Charizard did in BW, I'm not sure that's gonna happen. But seeing all his old pokemon again does give us hope that they might return to be used for some PWC battles from now on.

I was hoping they'd eventually see sense in using more of the actual opening in an episode.

I'm not sure that this arc will have Crown Tundra. It would have to be a lot more well crown tundra. No calyrex and no legendary galarian birds. Maybe they'll come back to it in the future and leave a hint. This anime seems to have an obsession with making galarian counterparts a stronger than basically any other mon, which is probably why we see Moltres and not G Moltres.

People have speculated that the blue in Asahi's design may indicate that she has RS Urshifu as a counterpart for Tsurugi's SS, I wonder if she instead has LK Toxtricity given the purple in her design, then Goh, or Goh and Ash get Kubfu/ Kubfu and Toxel for a future rivalry.

I didn't think for a moment that these new characters would own the two toxtricity forms which they probably do. I'm starting to get a bit doubtful about Ash capturing more pokemon.

This is the Anime's Version of Crown Tundra. Not exactly Crown Tundra but something similar. It's like how in Episode 14, they used an Anime-Exclusive Ruin in the Desert Resort rather than using the Relic Castile. That's what this is. This covers the Crown Tundra for the Anime. We are never going to get the one in the games.

First role in the TV series, but he's been in both Coco and Pokemon Masters as well.
Who was he on Masters? I'm unfamiliar with YGO GX.

All I know is the "card games on motorcycles" meme.
...Kairi's a boy's name?
It is.

Toei had used it to name the civilian identity of Lupin Red on Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger vs Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.
Oh, there is. Should've maybe linked that instead:

As long as it's not the Takanori Nishikawa and Sho Kiryuin clip, it's all fine.

Maybe after that it started appealing to a different demographic? Idk everything before BF/DP was beyond my time but even going back as an adult I find Gen 3 to be the most boring generation.
More boring than the repetitive, endless Johto fillers?

They were talking about the games, by the way.

I find the anime before the Battle Frontier as boring (Even then, the Battle Frontier is a bit boring)

I find the games before Diamond and Pearl as non-existent due to LGPE, HGSS, and ORAS

Soon, when BDSP comes out this year, I could even consider Diamond and Pearl obsolete

Alola's artstyle really wasn't that bad sooo

I know I found both uninteresting. I suppose I am too young to remember OS (especially Johto since I never watched it) so I can’t really speak on it.

I still think there is a good chance that Ash catches a Rookidee. Given how it was paired with Dreepy in TW, it could be cool to see Ash with one against Leon's Dragapult. Maybe Ash catches the Dreepy in the merchandise? Leon's Dragapult passing on one of its Dreepy to a newly evolved Ash Drakloak could be an interesting plot idea. Or Ash and Goh catch Rookidee and Dreepy respectively to mirror John and Tommy from TW.
