the new pokemon introduced in the trailer is Marshadow a legendary pokemon in gen 6 kinda like the equivalent of Mew or Celebi in the Alola region but yeah it was quite surprising that we're getting gen 4 and gen 6 pokemon cuz I thought that we would only get the first gens and it would be a remake of season 1 but this seems to be a mixture of both and who are those new companions?New trailer who dis'?
A lot of interesting stuff in this one.
That's pretty cool. Could be redoing the originals. I really loved the first two movies, and even now they look incredible. Sadly missed out on 3 and beyond until recently (got all 20 movies and still haven't watched them all. Got up to Giratina). Even if it's not, Lugia's still worth of it, as it's such an awesome Pokemon.Um... They're doing a movie based with Lugia soon so it might be a sequel.
Ok, I loved this movie. Here's why.
1. Ash's voice. Sure, it wasn't that good, but it was still less annoying than original Ash. Seems more like a kid and less like a smoker.
2. His companions. Their meeting was chance. It never made sense to me in the original series that a couple of gym leaders just up and left their post and their families to travel with this particular trainer. At that point, nothing really stood out about him above the rest, not to mention he was a total stranger and a kid. Brock and Misty were great tho, and they are still the best, but the way these three met and got together was a nice touch.
3. Using Pokemon outside the Indigo region. Of course we know why we didn't see them before. They didn't exist yet. But in universe, that was a nice touch, that other trainers have pokemon from other regions you won't see in that one.
4. Retelling the stories, like the one with Charmander was cool, and using his old trainer as a rival. Although that one along with the gym battles were extremely rushed, and we didn't see any others. He just stopped his main journey to start another. Also, kinda a shame Gary wasn't in it as a rival, but we did actually get a glimpse this time of the trainers who got Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Gary of course being one of them.
I had asked a friend why he didn't watch it, and he said the only reason was because Pikachu talks in one scene. I'll admit that was weird, but from a perspective, it makes perfect sense, because we understand that Ash to a certain extent can understand Pikachu when it speaks. And man, did Pikachu learn iron tail pretty fast..
Much better example. Sorry, was tired and couldn't think of any good comparisons. For some reason, that came to mind. Just meant that it was pretty rough, kinda scratchy, might say nails on chalkboard, tho I'm not sure that's even a good example.To each his own about preference, I suppose. I mean the new voice doesn't sound anything like an actual kid or even a human being and just sounds like an incredibly fake and forced anime voice to me. Don't really get the smoker comparison for Miss Taylor? In the early episodes Ash's voice was much gruffer but that was gradually phased out that by the second broadcast season (around the volcano badge) it was pretty high pitched and doesn't sound anything remotely like a smoker and it sounded like a high-pitched 10-year old boy.
YES! Oh man, I was glad they didn't do that with Bulbasaur and Squirtle. They didn't evolve in his company, so maybe wouldn't have been so bad. But yeah, never did get Charizard hating Ash so much after everything they went through just because he evolved.I liked that Charmeleon got more time to shine whereas it was rushed to Charizard stage in the tv series (I actually briefly thought it was going to remain a Charmeleon in the movie) and I liked that it didn't suddenly lose respect for Ash when it evolved.
The last one was my favorite in over a decade so the fact the new one is following the movie makes me excited. I'll admit Ash's new (current voice) sounded weird from season 9 and %80 of Sinnoh but as soon as Unova came it really got good. I honestly feel Veronica's Ash sounded older myself. With that said I actually like both.
