Project Mew: Special Preview

Sham

Code Lyoko was ahead of it's time
It’s sick that A nine tales could be going to one of the boys when they had Lillie sitting on an Ice Stone for MONTHS.

So according to the scans it looks like Infernape is going to be with Ash again. I hope that is true and that they are not tricking us.
For the Moltres episode, anyway.

Previous poster showed Ash's almost no-show Journeys team and yet Gengar didn't get a single stinking focus episode.
 

Almighty Zard

He has returned.
still want to know why only the select group of Ash's reserves is getting attention and not all of his pokemon, the fact that all the ones we see have bio's doesn't help those not shown either.

They may have only had access/permission to base it soley on the project Mew preview.

As for why the anime selected that frame to focus on, maybe because its the best shot with Ash and his Pokemon, while the others are disjointed and not as expansive of options like 1-2 here and 2-3 there.

I think that post mentions something about him havibg more that arent there in the picture. It just describes the ones appearing in that picture. That is all. Ai am sure we ll see more in the episode. His entire hoenn squad and half his unova squad are missing.

A few reasons:

1) Can't get a hold of the VAs.
or...
2) Animators do not want to animate them all, which heavily implies they really won't be important.
or...
3) Anyone else besides Infernape is a meager bonus.

Yeah i wouldn’t try to look too deeply into it. They’re clearly just giving a brief mention of the pokemon that are clearly visible to remind people who they are using the pic we’ve seen in the preview so to not spoil all the fun.

They didn’t give bulbasaur a bio as well even though he’s there but obstructed by ash. I wouldn’t take this as them saying the others won’t appear or anything.

Seriously, why isn't Ash bringing his Charizard for some Charizard/Blastoise action. Miiissed opportunity there.

I just realized this is the first time Ash's Charizard and Gary's Blastoise are going to appear in the same episode, since they fought at the Johto League ages ago.

I was hoping Ash would have a friendly battle with Gary at the very least. But so far doesn't look like he will.

IMO that plays well with his change since DP. He's not exactly a trainer anymore and has no reason to join the PWC.

I agree, but I didn't mean a PWC battle. Just a friendly battle like the one they had at the end of AG.
Seems like a wasted opportunity to bring back the OG rival and not have them battle at all.

I can understand but i would rather they talk and reminisce about their past than a quick and meaningless battle.

I’m glad his Unova Pokémon is getting showed love. I kinda wish one of them got the spotlight instead of Infernape. I realize BDSP are a couple of months away so might as well start the promotion and Infernape does bring back fond memories but Ash’s Unova Pokémon sucked. One of them needs a redemption arc
