One thing that has always bothered me since season 1 was Ash's choice to not fulfill his promise to Pidgeot and return for it after the Orange Islands were completed. It's been 15 seasons, when is he going back?

He's never coming back for it.

My guess is that the writers forgot about it.

Honestly we can't tell since they often times seem to be focused on the here and now as opposed to the past. Only pokemon like Charizard apparently get showcased lately.

And no the writers didn't forget any of his pokemon, because if anyone can access info to Ash past via websites then certainly the writers can access the information through their archives. They have most of Ash pokemon listed in the opening even Primeape, so why would they forget about Pidgeot who was with Ash a lot longer than Primeape. If the writers wish to have them reunite they will simple as that.

I hope he's going back for it on the season like the Orange Islands. It would be really cool to see how his Pidgeot became stronger.

I wish he came back…it's quite strange that Ash said he would come back for it when he would finish exloring Orange Islands. Poor Pidgeot…

I miss Pidgeot. I think it was the only Pokemon Ash released with the intent of coming back for it. Hopefully the new island arc will remind Ash of the Orange Islands and his Pidgeot, and he'll go looking for it. Or maybe sometime during that arc, Pidgeot, during a migration period, will just come flying to him, Charizard-style. (A guy can dream... T_T)

Nah... not happening.
These released Pokemon were just excuse so Satoshi could catch more Pokemon without the rotation that is present in Isshu.

He didn't forget about it. I'm pretty sure Ash still thinks about his Pidgeot. It's not happening. Pidgeot will not return because Ash released it to help the Pidgey and Pidgeotto in the forest. It's what I see, anyway. If it does return I'm pretty sure Ash will release it again. Same with Butterfree. Neither are coming back. I know he promised he would, but Ash doesn't seem to keep his promises to his Pokemon. That beside the point even if he does return for it I'm pretty sure it'll want to stay in the forest.

I think Ash won't come back for Pidgeot because I think the writers want people to focus on the new pokemon of the region not the old pokemon. But it would be cool. Maybe if X and Y has old pokemon in it. The new new fans ,like a little kid I used to sit by on my school bus who doesn't even know what a Bulbasaur is, need to know about the old pokemon!

Considering a full year never passed in the anime universe, he still has plenty of time to go back for it. XD

I swear in one episode after the indigo league, Ash says it's been a whole year since he's been home. So he should be at least 11, but strangely, he isn't.

But I guess time stopped after that and birthdays don't exist, so I agree with you as well. xD

Ash may return to pidgeot. By now those pisgey's and pidgeotto's should be pidgeot's by now. I think it has a chance of returning. It was shown in promotional art for lucario and the mystery of mew but was never shown in the movie it's self. I think this new season may actually have pidgeot in it. Black and white's anime seems to be a revival to the old series. It is a lot better then the other series. The show seems to get more attention with the return of ash's old pokemon so maybe pidgeot will come back after all.

i dont think it will come back...as much as i and everyone wants it to, it probably wont. I mean cause people dont really wanna see the region birds in imprtant battles i guess...cause Ash pretty much just uses them for searching for lost pokemon! And they'd probably focus on his main-er pokemon like Charizard. it'd be cool to see Pidgeot again though

He used pidgeot to fight a lot to, more then his other bird pokemon. So i don't see why it can't come back and fight some more.

I see Pidgeot return more likely since it would seem Ash becomes reunited with his Butterfree so if he meets up with Butterfree then I don't see why not Pidgeot. I wouldn't rule these things out of the question. Although it seems like the writers often seem to alienate the older fans with the way they do things they do like to provide fan service at times.

The writers haven't forgotten Ash's Pidgeot or any of his Pokémon. The proof is in the fifth and final opening for the Advanced Generation saga. Watch here.

I always like to think that Pidgeot and her (it always seemed female to me) flock have been continuously migrating around the Kanto region from time to time after Ash left it behind. And whenever Ash went back to Kanto, Pidgeot just wasn't around at the time. If Ash does in fact become reunited with his Butterfree in the upcoming DA arc though, then I think there's a greater chance that he'll eventually run into Pidgeot again.

In Bulbapedia, in the Ash's pokemon released section, it states that Pidgeot (along with Lapras and Butterfree) was recently released...so it probably won't come back

Well that is not true for pidgeot. He never released it, he still has it's pokeball. He did release butterfree and lapras though.
