Considering there was way too much information for episodes, including episodes with no title reveals, why not make a new thread (feel free to close this Kirbychu, if you feel this can all be disscused in separate threads)

The preview include:
- DP one hour special
- Battle Against Aloe
- Egg hatch.
- Gym Leader Arti
- Team Rocket & Plazma.

Heres the preview:


Im sure the egg must be
Kurumiru
, if not, Ash must be getting one soon...

Given the lack of closure for both Hikari and Takeshi at the end of DP, I'm really glad they're dedicating this to them. It's kinda weird though - they're using the DP art style in an era where they're animating BW.

It was proved by Giovanni in episode 7, he warned Jessie, James and Meowth about them.

I guess you could surmise by the way Ash reacted to Kurumiru that it could actually be his. I'm done guessing what's in the egg, lol. I just hope whatever hatches from it, Ash keeps it. A nice teaser though. Anyone else hear Cheren's encounter theme. :D

    How long has it been since Ash had a Bug type? Johto? Maybe they're trying to do that again and give him Kurumiru. I don't think Kurumiru is Ash's type of Pokemon though.

    Also, given that Arti was there the Kurumiru could be his

    Since EP161 when Ash caught Beedrill and gave it to Casey. I don't really think there is a "type" of pokemon that particular caters to Ash. I just hope he either catches this in the forest where he meets Arti or that he is trying to get back Arti pokemon. I really don't want a Kurumiru hatching from the egg...

    I was gonna make a thread about dawn/brock, good thing I checked >.>
    Anyways, I havent even watched when they leave (even though im on ep 10 of best wishes <.<)
    So, its good good.

    Could that team rocket scene mean their making the new "mewtwo" Genosect?
    If so then Giovanni needs to stop "morphing" with Pokémon. jk
    But it'll be interesting to see if they made that pokemon,

    My guess is it would be Genesect. I kind of doubt they will evolve Mewtwo. Maybe Mewthree which will appear in Gen VI! LOL dreaming on that one. Supposedly Genesect is modified by Team Plasma.

      Genosect seems to be an interesting choice! Seeing as N hated and dismissed that project because altering the fossil made it impure, there would be more to the Rocket and Plasma conflict that what happened in the DP arc with Galactic and Rocket (which was kinda... boring, if you ask me). : D

      I find it interesting that they're using the DP style for the 1-hour special. I was hoping to see Hikari and Takeshi in the new style, but I'm fine with the old one. Besides, they're not BW characters so it would be weird if they used the new one.

        ^ I'm with you on the Hikari/Takeshi thing. I was looking forward to seeing new artwork for them and new outfits. I wonder if they've got any new Pokemon yet...they are in Isshu right? o.o

        Well considering if you actually watched the preview in the first post, no they are keeping with their DP clothes. Also no, they are not in Isshu, you can tell because Brock is in his/his fathers Gym battling against Nurse joy. (Probably something to do with him becoming a doctor.) It also says in the scans that Dawn goes to Hearthome City again in order to further train her Buneary.
        Also:
        Spoiler:
        Brocks Marshtomp evolves and Dawns Cyndaquil evolves

        Is it possible that they animated the Dawn and Brock episode before BW, and are just dumping it inbetween the BW episodes randomly? In far enough so it's been a bit of time since we've seen either of them, but not too far that new viewers would have no clue who they are.

          It's funny how Dawn's Cyndaquil evolved faster than Ash's.

          I would imagine that the animation is pretty recent. They could've had the BW art style in the latter episodes of DP, but they didn't - it leads me to believe that the art change was planned for a while. Perhaps they want to keep DP split from the Best Wishes style.

          It's also possible that this special episode was finished off long before DP was ending. Who knows.

          Ash's cyndaquil has already evolved. (For reference: http://serebii.net/anime/epiguide/shinou/650.shtml)

          Although, I would agree with that time wise, since Dawn's cyndaquil evolved/will evolve Quicker.

            I know Ash cyndaquil evolved. I was talking about time wise.


            By the looks of the preview I'm guessing shooti won't make an appearance any time soon. Anyone wondering what his other 3 pokemon are?

            I didn't notice the "Faster" sorry. "

            Thats a bit of a whole different topic, lets keep to the preview.

            From the looks of it, maybe Brocks fighting Nurse joy to get a job in the centre or something? Or maybe it's just to finally win her over. ¬.¬

            I have got the feeling it's more of the latter. Or maybe a combination of both. Brock has been rejected so many times, now it is time for some acceptance. I know about he girl going after him back in Johto, but he was too stupid to come to his senses then. Sigh looks like they yanked the preview view.
