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.
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.
The implication stems from something Ash said. So it's canon I suppose
>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
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.
>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
>I don't think it looks exactly like Ho oh.
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.
Don't forget the part where all the people he met where just projections of his real life acquaintances.
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).
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.
Can i be popular to?
I lost the first green book ,_,
Holy fuck those are atrocious, that cant be real.
I bought them when i was 4. Damn
Holy fuck I was 4/5 when I got my old red Kanto version. (And my dad wouldn't let me get the updated green Mew/Togepi one when it came out...)
Nah it's ok I'm only taking the piss. It doesn't matter what gen you started with.
It was shiny dude.
Im 19 you fuking retards,the book was publish in Mex in 2001 learn how to fucking count.
>learn how to speak english
i know fuck off im learning
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.
how fucking far back does your time lag go? i've seen some people who must be stuck around 2008-2009
anyone born before may 17 1998 is 18 or older
Going to take classes again soon, here you need english at least to have a desent job.
I can read 95%, but my writing is Turboshit.
>Mr Ketchum I'm doctor Oak
>You've been in a delirious state for months. You thought yourself a young teenager playing fantasy dog fights. Odd for an established software programmer
>Your wife Ms Misty is waiting in the other room
>She brought your beloved cat, Pikachu
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
