View Full Version : Who do you want to come back?

The closest thing to this thread is the Recurring Character thread.

Anyway, who are the characters that you'd like to see appear on at least one more episode again? They can be any characters that haven't gotten together with Ash in more than one episode. Here's a list of characters that I'd like to see Ash and co. meet up with again:

Joe
Giselle
Tomo/Tommy and his family
The Magikarp Salesman
Casey
Sakura
Saundra and her mom Savanna
Kelly

(The bold ones are people who haven't met Ash again ever since their first debut.)

TODD.

Do I get a cookie for being Captain Obvious now?

I don't care if had six episodes, dammit. More Todd. <3

Basically anyone from Kanto since, oh I dunno... the battle fronteir friggin takes place there. --;

And Hazuki. :P

6th October 2005, 3:36 AM
Robert, plz! OK, he's pretty much a given to pop up again some time, but I might as well mention him anyway. Because he's awesome. <3

Giselle reappearing would be great, too, especially if she's still a snooty b*tch. I wonder how she and May would get along? And Ash going gaga over her again would be a sight worth seeing.

Robert dammit! How can he win so much with only like, five minutes of total screen time? >.< At least there's a good chance he'll be back... Hopefully with Harley! </yaoi-fangirlism>

Actually, any coordinator would be welcomed... Toshiki, Kimimaro, Tsukiko, and Kanata especially. <3 I'd like Imite to show up again, even though she's been in two non-consecutive episodes... And the Orange Island gym leaders. Atsumi especially. <3

...Can pokemon count? Jupetta-chan and Ariados-chan please~! Hear that Harley? You gotta use at least one of them in the next contest you pop up in... >.<

And Todd, not because I think he is hot, but because I always thought he was awsomely cool. He needs a comeback.

Much in the same vein as Heracross, I'd like to see a few return appearances from some of the great Kanto one-shots. I mean, the show's back in the region now, shouldn't at least one familiar face turn up? Akira and his Sand on their journey, Masaki shut up in his lighthouse, Yuki and the other breeders of Scissor Street, Fuuko and Dorio at that ranch outside the Safari Land...the possibilities are endless. Plus, you'd think they'd at least go back to a few big cities that they rushed through and explore them more thoroughly (Tamamushi City, I'm looking in your general direction...).

I agree, I think that good ol' Westwood's got some more great comedy left for us.

NidorinoBlue
6th October 2005, 8:06 PM
More Magikarp Salesman! That guy is a riot. Never get bored of that sketch. And the Battling Eevee Brothers I wouldn't mind seeing again (Perhaps with Sakura in the same episode for an added twist.)

6th October 2005, 8:28 PM
I want Sullivan the fishing master to come back

Devilrose
7th October 2005, 12:06 AM
I wouldn't mind Kelly getting another episode or two >.>

Or maybe Giselle...cause it'd be nice to see some characters from the old Kanto series that we DON'T see over and over and over and over again...

*goes to sit in her corner with a little whisp of steam above her head*

7th October 2005, 12:43 AM
I'm also gonna hop on the Kantou one-shot bandwagon, considering they're back there now, and some of Satoshi's earliest rivalries seem the most worthy of mention. Namely Akira and Seiyo, and all the gym leaders that seemed interesting but never really got much characterization, like Kyou (especially Kyou) and Machisu. I thought Lily was an interesting character, especially as far as Jouto one-shots go, and really wouldn't mind Satoshi-tachi running into her again. Oh yeah, and let me say that if Aya ends up returning a third time, yet there's still no hide nor hair of Anzu, I'm gonna be royally p***ed.

It would be nice if they made some of Satoshi's past league opponents end up being more major players as well, especially Kaede (whom was a very interesting character, being such a competant rival and all, yet we never got to know her outside of battle). Instead, what do they do? They go and make some poor imitation of Satoshi, Hiroshi, a recurring character. Meanwhile, his main opponents from later leagues, Hadzuki (whom really could use some more characterization, cause at the moment, he just looks like some excuse to show off the at-the-time upcoming third generation), Tetsuya, Masamune, as well as all the lesser league opponents (the afforementioned Kaede, and even Jun'ichi despite his earlier role in the Crystal special, and I'm sure I speak for Alfonso when I say "Juggler Korm"), will probably never be heard from again. Even Shigeru's been supposedly ditched entirely (though, I was surprised that he managed to return for a Housou). Speaking of Jun'ichi and the Crystal special, it's a real shame that there's no sign that Kenta-tachi will show up again anytime soon. But what's most disappointing is that Bashou, Buson, and Shiranui-hakase will probably never return, since as far as Rocket Dan members went, they definitely seemed the best, and how often does this series have a villian that seems like an actual threat? Outside of movies, anyway.

KELLY!


plz.


Seriously, I need the minamoshipping love. D: Other than that, she was an awesome character alone.
I also want Giselle. :x For some reason.
And Todd.
And Robert.
And Sakura.
And Tracey if he counts. :x
And pretty much every hot minor character ever appeared. :D

7th October 2005, 1:27 AM
Temacu. And thats not even down to bias. She was a really interesting character, with one of the better designs in the show. If you ask me, it seems a shame that she's destined to remain buried in a pile of forgotten random characters. They really could have taken her relationship with Brock further, and would have had an amusing recurring character on their hands. Blah.
Chigusa too~ I want to see how her battling style has developed, and how she's handled the pressure of being in charge of her grandfather's Dojo.

I wouldn't mind seeing some of the Magma and Aqua team members appearing in the future. Granted, we would no longer be able to see them as formidable villians due to the disbanding of each group, but it would be interesting to see what happened to some of the more important members, such as the 2 field commanders, and of course the leaders. How have they adapted to life now that their main goals have been eradicated, and what are their plans for the future?

Also, I agree with having some of the the strangely eccentric elderly characters making a return at some point, and that includes the likes of the Magikarp Salesman, Sulivan, Cleavon Speilbunk (oy, what a name..), Gligarman, Old Man Shuckle and Earl, the pokémon school principal. As well as the younger ones such as Grace (c'mon, she was hillarious), Seymour the scientist, Lily (the Pokémon witch from 'Hocus Pokémon') or the monsterous teacher from the kids day ep....and I guess to a certain extent, Mizuho.

I also want to see Masato's clone again :P He got screwed over with that rather boring Surskit episode.

All the others I'd like to make a comeback have already been mentioned by now~

Rex Kamex
7th October 2005, 2:32 AM
Chigusa! Yeah, I forgot about her! If she was to come back, maybe she could enter in a few contests, since her original battling style would do well in that.

CyberCubed
7th October 2005, 2:57 AM
Definitely the more interesting characters:

Kelly (Please make her into another one of May's ongoing rivals)
Sakura (great character)
Gary (would like to see him bump into Ash in Kanto)
Mewtwo (a lot of untapped potential storytelling here)
Squirtle! (bring back Ash's Squirtle and the Squirtle Squad)

Probably now she is already married and has cute babies :p

I doubt it. With the way time seems to pass in the anime, she's probably still engaged.


Lily (the Pokémon witch from 'Hocus Pokémon')

even though the anime says she's a sorceror, I'd personally consider her an alchemist more than anything. But in any case, I'm glad to see I'm not alone when it comes to wanting to see her again.

Considering they're likely to show Kasumi again, I wish that in future episodes, they showed more of Kasumi's two other sisters. Ever since the sisters' second appearance way back in Kantou, it's just been Sakura, Sakura, Sakura, which is a real shame because I find Ayame (the blue-haired one) to be pretty cute (it's worth noting that in their debut episode, it looked like Ayame was the sister who got the most speaking parts, leaving me to wonder why she's not the one hogging the spotlight in later episodes).

Yes. Nice to see I'm not the only one who wants to see him return.

Hell, even if it's just for a handful of episodes, have him travel with Ash, Brock, Misty and May. It could be fun.

Caseydia
7th October 2005, 7:14 PM
Not this thread again. Anyway, I have to say I wouldn't want them to stay permently but just for one episode. I wouldn't want to see the same old faces anyway. Maybe except for a gymleader, Elite trainer or Champion.

It would be nice to see what had become of Blaine and his volcano gym...

Shiranui-hakase will probably never return

T_T Never say such a thing! That hope is all that keeps me going!! *dramatic sob*

I want him to come back, along with all of the other one-shot Rockets that we've seen. I'm in the mood for another good multi-episode arc with Sebastian as the main villian. Or maybe even Nanba.

...I wish Ash-tachi would go back to Johto where all the GOOD Rockets seem to hang out. -_- I want them to come back, I want them ALL BACK!! T_T

Well, I'd like to see quite a lot of them back. Let's see; Misty, for one. And Tracey. I'd die, no better yet, I'd kill to see the group for the next season be Ash, Misty, May and Tracey. Richie, Gary and Todd could pop up now and then. And, last but not least, Prima. Just looking at her makes me a very happy fanboy.

Caseydia
19th October 2005, 8:22 PM

Sharpshooter
20th October 2005, 1:05 AM
Well first thing's first I'd quite like to Gary back, as he is really my favourite character (although he's never had a great overall contribution to the show, his presence, daftness and the way he owns people is what I've always liked about him).

Being a pok&#233;shipper, I'd more than welcome a return from Misty at any stage, although I'm not sure if that's due anytime soon. Other characters like Tracey (who gets shafted a lot) would be cool too.

The only problem is you bring any of these characters back and the AG writers will probably reck them for good like the way they did with Brock and Ash, so perhaps it's best to leave them the way they are for the meantime until somebody slaps some sense into the current set of writers.

21st October 2005, 6:44 AM
I'd like to see Misty make as many apperances as possible (if she doesn't return to the show), Lance in an episode that doesn't involve a lot of battles/action/isn't centered around a crisis (I wanna see some character development for him), other members of the Kanto Elite Four, and...I dunno XD.

Orion-Sama
22nd October 2005, 4:05 AM
Whitney... :D

Now seriously. I'd like to see AJ, Otoshi and... um... I guess that's it. I just found those two to be excellent canon fodder for the Pokémon League, but were shafted in favor of some nobodies and the usual "League Rival" (Mandy and Janet were OK, though, since they were at least a main focus of their chapters. The other ones just lose and that's it...). AJ and Otoshi would've made for a WAY better climax and more intense battles. Especially AJ...

The Samurai would be cool too. When was the last time someone used a Pinsir?

I just hope they DO see a few known faces in this new stroll through Kanto. If not... well, as expected *Loses even more faith in the show*.

22nd October 2005, 6:59 PM
I'd like to see Gary, Richie, Sakura, and Tracey again. Misty for at least a few episodes. OK, and Todd should get some kind of recognition in some kind of three-part episode thing. =P

Well, he said that he'd keep studying the GS Ball and that he'd let Ash and co. know when he found something interesting, which brings up two possibilities:

1. He's still studying the GS Ball, or,
2. He finished, but became too lazy to let Ash and co. know.

Or you could go with the third option, which was that the writers forgot about him.

- Richie (his Pikachu vs. Ash's Pikachu)

Phantom_Bugsy
28th October 2005, 2:57 AM
That would be AJ.

Jesus f*cking f*ck, Todd needs to show up again or I will EAT the writers alive with a side of mint sauce. I don't think he wanted to stay up in the mountains permanently, he said he wanted to get a few more shots. Plus, he'd totally DIE up there in shorts and a t-shirt! And he doesn't bring anything else but his camera, so he doesn't have another set of clothes...

Unless of course he's dead already. >____> Or frozen somewhere at the peak of the mountain and Articuno hasn't found him! ; ; Or fell down a cliff or broke his leg or got frostbite or...or....; ;

......>__> Todd needs to appear again so I'll know he's not dead. *nod*

.....no.

The point of this thread is not for you to complain and whine about Misty leaving. It's for the other characters that we saw like...once or twice. Misty gets enough threads.

So granted you're partially right. I'm a Misty hater, but I'm sick of the threads where the minor characters get to shine being TAKEN OVER by that redheaded excuse for a character. She gets enough threads of her own, go complain there.

....and now that I've used that picture, I want Eusine and Kudou back. XD Maybe to explain how they know each other...:0

Notice how characters often not notice cold or hot temperatures... sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Anybody notice the freezing cold in that episode? *Hasn't seen it XP* He might be fine, or reappear in the Battle Frontier taking pictures of stuff, or at some guy's house taking pictures of his... stuff... or... or... let's just say he's alive... cause no minor character would take Articuno pics and not live.
