Was this ever explained?
>>
>>141615078
What's there to be explained?
>>
A Ho-Oh appeared to Ash at the end of the first episode, flying alongside a rainbow across the sky after the thunderstorm.

After competing in the Silver Conference, Ash saw Ho-Oh flying towards Hoenn. This encouraged him to get over his depression at his loss and continue his journey.

Ho-Oh was seen flying into the sunset at the end of Battling the Enemy Within!. This time, Brock, May, Max, Scott and Brandon saw Ho-Oh as well (on a slightly related note, this time, someone other than Ash managed to identify it first).

It is implied that when he catches it, his journey is over. He can never catch Ho-Oh for it would be the end of his journey.
>>
>>141615078
IT'S ALL A DREAM.
>>
>>141615078
Its Ho-oh.
>>
>>141615180
so we can assume that in the final episode he will finally catch one?
>>
>>141615114
Why is he seeing that weird bird at the very beginning.

>>141615180
Is this Canon or just fanfiction filler stuff?
>>
>>141615269
>pokemon
>ending
I think they'll replace Ash, keep Pikachu and change the MC. Though it was brought to my attention that changing MCs is trademarked or something.

>>141615303
The implication stems from something Ash said. So it's canon I suppose
>>
>>141615078
>last episode of Pokemon
>wins in the final league
>the legendary bird lands in front of him
>opens his mouth
>about to reveal its purpose

>Ash wakes up in Tokyo
>time to go to school
>>
>>141615303
>weird bird
nigga it's just a Pokemon. He just saw a rare pokemon, that's the end of the story. We even know exactly which Pokemon it was.

What don't you understand?
>>
>>141615303
Canon except the catching part. That was never mentioned nor implied.
He hasn't seen Ho-oh for 3 gens now.
>>
>>141615078
Probably just kidnapping more children.
>>
>>141615416
Except he sees it in the first episode like it's supposed to mean something, his pokeshit doesn't recognize it and Oak doesn't believe he saw what he thinks he saw.

I was hyped as fuck when I was a kid and here we are now, no reveal in sight.
>>
>>141615693
>no reveal in sight
There's been 700 episodes. Can you truly say there hasn't been a reveal?
>>
>>141615693
>no reveal in sight.
Have you just not had any contact with the anime, games, etc since you first saw the episode, because you seem pretty ignorant of Ho-oh and associated legnds
>>
>>141615764
I don't know how long pokemon has been running but I it's been at least 18 years since I got the tape of the first episode.

18 years and no reveal.
>>
>>141615782
Played red, blue and silver and gold. Think a green and yellow one too. Watched up to orange league.

I don't think it looks exactly like Ho oh.
>>
From the Pokedex entry in Diamond and Pearl:

>It possesses seven-colored wings. It is said that those who see Ho-Oh are promised an eternal happiness.
>>
>>141615693
It was a fucking preview for Gold and Silver, like "ohhh kids what is this mysterious pokémon that isn't in the pokédex?" That's all it was.

It looks exactly like a Ho oh except the color, which can be explained by the golden effect thing or the fact that the gen 2 designs weren't set in stone by the time of first anime episode.

what should i expect if i start watching pokemon?
>>
>>141616296
It depends on where you start. If you decide to start from the very beginning, expect to lose a decent chunk of your life (also no subs for most of it until late into DP, 12 years after the start of the show). If you decide to only watch the current series, then it's more manageable (around 120 episodes so far).

>>141616296

The first seasons are not that bad actually but around Johto it becomes unbearable.

I've lost track of Pokemon since then but the last seasons have some sick animation.

>>141615078
It's a Ho-Oh that got pranked by a bucket of gold paint landing on its head
>>
>>141616145
>not Tracey's
Try again anon. There's a reason he spends so much time at her gym. He even gave her an Azurill he bred from his Marill.
>>
>>141616508
Well then, have fun. It's 900+ episodes of a constantly-repeating formula, but it's not a bad time if you like the world and the Pokémon.
>>
>>141615078
Gen 2 pokemon in Gen 1.

Do we know how many holes the Rocket Gang dug so far?
>>
>>141616296
Children's anime with a pretty basic plot designed to sell games and merch. It's cute and the songs are catchy (both original and dub). I watch an episode every so often as a stress relief/nostalgia thing.

It's only been actively subbed by the current main subbing group since partway through Diamond & Pearl but they've been doing older episodes as a side project. They're up to ep 43 in the original series atm.

Man, I remember seeing that shit when I was a kid and I was hyped as fuck because none of us knew what the hell that bird was. Was the anime made before Gen 2? I know I watched it before Gold/Silver came out, so it was extra mysterious to me.

I remember seeing on /v/ a pic of humans being part of the creation of pokemons, meaning that they are pokemon too.

What if that crazy theory that Ho-oh is Satoshi's dad has some truth?
>>
I remember people saying that Gamefreak has about 1000 designed pokemon already and only settled around 150 because that's all Gameboys could run at the time but somebody on staff liked Mew to code it into the game at the last minute. Don't you think it's amazing? we're 820 Pokemon in and they're still only touching up designs that have already existed for damn near 20 years. No wonder Nintendo likes them so much, minimum effort for maximum profit has been their bread and butter since the Wii
