Trailer of Ash’s Visit to Kanto, Brock and Misty!

Here’s our first preview of the upcoming Sun & Moon episodes featuring Brock and Misty!

Ash’s whole class takes a trip to Kanto to study regional variants. Brock and Misty await them at the airport and it seems like almost no time has passed since they last saw him. Ash also sees his Bulbasaur at Professor Oak’s lab. And of course Team Rocket decides to tag along…

The episodes will show a few photo flashbacks from the first season, including one with Ash, Brock, and Misty saying bye-bye to Ash’s Butterfree. This same scene was depicted in the 20th movie, but of course Brock and Misty were absent. This again shows that the 20th movie is its own timeline.

Jigglypuff is also shown singing. Jigglypuff was originally voiced by Rachael Lillis, who also voiced Misty and Jessie under 4Kids. I wonder if they’ll ask Rachael Lillis to voice Jigglypuff again, which might be odd considering Misty and Jessie are in these episodes but likely won’t be voiced by her. I’m not sure if TPCi would be allowed to use stock audio of Jigglypuff since it might break SAG-AFTRA rules, so they may just end up using a new voice actor, though that would also be odd since Lillis’s portrayal of Jigglypuff is so iconic. Who knows what’ll happen?!

Are you excited?

    So the entire class goes to Kanto? I probably should've assumed that originally, but now that it's confirmed that'll be interesting to see. Definitely going to watch these episodes.

    TCG cards are rarely based off of the anime, so probably not.

    It's cool that the whole Alola gang is going to Kanto, rather than just Ash! That just further piques my interest in this particular arc because we'll get to see all the new characters meeting Ash's oldest companions for the first time.

    (Kinda wondering how Lana and Misty will get along...)

    Honestly, after posting that trailer, the Televi-Kun scan, those two teaser images, tweets by the various staff, including Junichi Masuada and Mayumi Iizuka, and posting a storyboard image that got showed in one of the trailers, and the trailer itself showing enough of the episode to practically spoil half of the two episodes, I think it's closer to being safe to say that, however long Misty and Brock stay, it's definitely a LOT longer than two episodes.

    Aw. Pikachu jumping over to Misty was adorable. I feel like giving Misty her Gold and Silver hair style would've worked to show some time has passed. (I truly forget if Brock looked any different in G/S.) But sure. Nostalgia and nobody ages in the anime. Nailed it.

    Yet here we are with Bewear in every Sun and Moon set, so far. :rolleyes: (Sorry. I know you said rarely, but I had to.)

    I think WPM's observation about it being popular in the anime, thus being in every set, is spot on. ...Unless, of course, Pokemon flat out said this when they revealed the latest one on their Japanese Twitter. Then it's just fact. Ha ha.

    Wonder why Misty went back to her old hair style and outfit?

    I get what they're going for here, but... Something feels off to me. It kinda feels like they're ignoring a lot of the character development Misty and Brock went through since the original series for the sake of nostalgia. I guess we'll need to wait for the episode to see, but I hope I'm wrong. Misty might be my least favourite of the female protagonists, but I still want her appearance to be a good one.

    Yeah, I have a bit of a problem with that claim. The amount of teasing they've done since Monday would suggest a whole lot more than just two episodes (heck, that trailer they've released alone just potentially spoiled half of the episodes we know they're going to be in), ESPECIALLY when taking into account how they didn't give NEARLY as much teases regarding potential returns during prior character returns (Usually, their returns were only indicated by a TVGuide-type scan at the very least, maybe at most a TV Games Guide scan at best in the case of Charizard in BW. Heck, in Dawn's case, her return wasn't even given any prior allusions in any sources beforehand. And for the record, they didn't give nearly as much teasing when Misty briefly returned for Battle Frontier, or, heck, Ash even going to Kanto for the Battle Frontier anyway, despite it not only also being a Kanto revisit, but also nearing the franchise's 10 year anniversary as well.). Maybe if they only kept it to a TV Guide schedule blurb, or at most an announced episode title like they have done before, I'd be a bit more believing of that claim.

    Eh, as long as Misty's no longer at the gym, I won't mind (personally, I hated how they shoved her at the gym after GCYL, ESPECIALLY considering how AG sullied the reputation of Gym Leaders as a whole by treating the Hoenn Gym Leaders as basically being as competent as Jessie, James and Meowth [ie, not competent at all, save for maybe Roxanne and Brawley].). Besides, considering Televi-Kun's blurb about Brock explicitly notes his being a Pokemon Doctor, I'm pretty sure they've retained his development at least.

    Never say never. Besides, they'd BETTER have Ash come back for Pidgeot this time around after how AG's writers completely screwed up that opportunity (I can forgive Johto having him neglect to come back for it, since at least there, Ash had an excuse due to Professor Oak not exactly giving him much time to do that due to wanting him to deliver the GS Ball ASAP, I cannot forgive AG for not having him go for it).

    I watched it and it was interesting but I really have the feeling there was a translation issue with the episode. I think the Japaneses intended for it to be released right then and there but the dub had them saying it would return but I believe they had to write it off for being its strongest Pokemon. The West just want to see it come back to do something for Ash before it goes away again. Charizard is cool and all but his Pidgeot has always been there for him so it sucks to see them treat a popular Pokemon like that the way they do. Just as something to show the fans that they didn't forget. Let it show up so it can teach Rowlet a thing or two.

    I just asked Dogasu on his Facebook page as to when he'll redo the comparison for that episode, partially because of that (and partially because there really needs to be a side note about how those sauces, especially the red sauce and Mustard, were NOT intended to be Ketchup and the regular mustard we know of, respectively. I was terrified of having those condiments after what happened in those episodes, where everyone who ate the food ended up spraying fire).

    Speaking of Mustard and Ketchup, those were going to be the names of Cyrax and Sector.
