In the indigo league? I haven't watched the show in a long time on account of it ceasing to be good after the first season, but I have always wondered this, why on earth would they leave the elite four out?

They have never exculded the eliete four in any region. The reason that Ash hasn't faced them is because in order to challenge in the 'Champions League" a trainer must first win their region's tourtament. For example if I originated from Johto, I could only challenge the Elite Four when I acumulate all 8 Johto badges and win my region's tourtament/conference.

This was breifly explained by Lucian in one of the Episodes. I think it was: "An Elite meet and greet."

Actually, every single member of the original Kanto Elite 4 has appeared in the anime at one point. Ash has actually battled (and lost) against Lorelei (Prima) and Agatha. It has been hinted that when a trainer wins their respective region's Pokemon League, they can participate in the Elite Four Challenge, fighting the four members of that region's Elite Four, and then possibly the Champion as well.

Lucian of the Sinnoh Elite Four mentioned this to Ash and his friends. Like I said it was in the episode "The Elite Meet and Greet." I can link the episode to you if you like.

Lorelei's name was changed to Prima in the English version of the anime because 4kids was trying to fit the amount of syllables the Japanese name has. The English name "Lorelei" is three syllables while the Japanese name "Kanna" is only two. The name change really just made dubbing easier.

By the way, rather than locking this thread in the future, I'm moving it to the FAQ thread.

I heard it was a battle between trainer Gold and Ash! I went to the San Jose B/W Pokemon Tour but the tickets were all given away too early for all showings of the movie . Anyone know where we can watch all the mini-movies or at least a place that lists them all??

Thanks and I am new to this website.

Here's a bit of it, there's some useless text before it. Really cool, I'm interested in seeing the whole for sure.

Welcome to the website! I'm going to move this to the FAQ thread, since it fits better there.

Actually, this mini-movie you're talking about is really just the opening of the 13th movie. It was cut when said movie aired on TV for whatever reason.


I don't quite know what you mean by "watch all the mini-movies". If you're referring to the openings of each Pokemon movie, then you should just try searching online a bit.

Thanks for moving this to FAQ thread! I got lots of replies now! When I said "mini-movies" I meant stuff like Pikachu's Vacation and all those other ones I forgot about! Or was there not one for this movie? Also, thanks for the link for the Jimmy Vs. Ash!

Oh, you mean all the Pikachu shorts. The members here aren't allowed to give you episodes, but I can give you a list. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pikachu_shorts

Apart from the battle in Pewter City gym, I think Ash and Brock had a number of training battles, one of which I can recall was in the Battle Frontier saga, where Mudkip evolved in Marshtomp. There might be many such instances where Ash was just training with Brock, so I don't have the exact number. XD;;

Just to exspand on what Regeneration said, be a little more helpful. The episode was titled "A chip off the old Brock" in the Battle frontier saga. Also, they had a little tag battle in Pewter City Gym against team rocket, also in the frontier saga titled "Grating Spaces"

Hey all, I stopped watching the anime after Johto (well, not completely. I caught an episode here and there every now and then) but have been considering picking it up again. I was wondering whether they ever make any references or bring in any cameos from past seasons? If so, how frequently do they occur?

On a side note, is Gary still the rival? If not, whatever happened to him?

This belongs in the FAQ thread.~

To answer your question, they do reference older seasons, but those references get less common each saga. In Black and White there are almost no references at all, Ash didn't even remember how to properly catch a Pokemon.
Misty appeared a few times in Hoenn and the Battle Frontier, and May appeared once in Sinnoh. Dawn and Brock both got specials in Black and White as well. Hoenn and the Battle Frontier are the closest things we have to a mature and experienced Ash, he even acts as a mentor to May at times.
We rarely get to see Ash's old Pokemon. We see quite a few during the Battle Frontier, and he uses them during the Sinnoh League as well. A certain member from his Johto squad evolves during the Sinnoh league as well.

After the Johto League Gary randomly left to become a Pokemon Researcher. He appears at the end of the Battle Frontier and a couple times in Sinnoh.
