    Default Will there be a 20th anniversary special? Speculation

    Hey guys,
    So 2016 is the year of the 20th anniversary of pokemon, I was just wondering do we think there will be a special episode for it?
    There was a 10th anniversary special, The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon was a 10th anniversary special which feature the return of Misty and Oak, and appearance from Mew too. It provided another opportunity to see the cast of the last 10 years on screen together, something that would be nice to see again.

    Now we're 20 years on from when the pokemon series began and there has been many adventures with different friends since then, it would be nice to mark the occasion with a special episode.

    However unlike the 10th anniversary where it was only Misty and Tracey (who did not appear) who could return for it, we've now got Brock, May, Max, Dawn, Iris and Cilan who could also be included in the list, which could be a problem as there are so many of them which would result in less screen time for some of the characters.

    Therefore, do you think there will be a special episode? If so, how would you like to see it handled, and what possible storyline would you like to see for it.

    I hope so, but I doubt it. At least not a 20th anniversary special from the main anime, but I could see something like Pokemon Origins again *shudders*

    If it does happen though, I would like to see Dr. Young/Mirage Master return since it wasn't clear what happened to him after he disappeared.

    It could be a crossover from all four corners of the multiverse for all I care.

    One thing I'm reluctant about is if there is a "look how far we've come" type of event.
    "Everyone creates the thing they dread. Men of peace create engines of war. Invaders create Avengers. People create... smaller people? Er... children! I lost the word there. Children. Designed to supplant them. To help them end."

    "Momentai!"

    But this is the traditional royal Canterlot voice! It is tradition to speak, using the Royal "we", and to use THIS MUCH VOLUME WHEN ADDRESSING OUR SUBJECTS!!

    What was wrong with Pokemon Origins?

    I'm also hope to see this special, with all main characthers, and - Ritchie, Butch and Cassidy. Heroes are meeting in party for Ash's win in Kalos League and his 11th birthday, in Poke Convention in Pallet Town. And Team Rocket trying revenge to heroes for all failures, and stolen all their Pokemon.

    I think it's worth noting that the anime's 20th anniversary isn't until 2017. It's possible they would wait on a special until then.

    Regardless, I'd really like to see an episode that utilizes Ho-oh in some way.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.
    Check it out!

    I don't see a 20th anniversary special happening in my opinion.

    Yeah I realised that too, but then when I looked up the special's airdate, it aired in April 2006, which would be the 10th anniversary of the series rather than the actual anime.

    I think the 10th anniversary special was more like Tpci's idea unless I'm wrong, so I dunno if they'd request one for the 20th anniversary. I didn't like the one from 10 years ago however so I'm not on board with a sequel. ^^;

    Should they plan to release one, I hope it will be good.

    Ash's Primeape and Squirtle returning would be great. Or a Gen. 1 capture for Ash, Serena and/or Clemont.

    But they might showcase some conference trainer related to Kanto, or characters like Daisy or Janine, or an anime-exclusive Indigo League champion if not Red or Blue (Ash and Gary in the anime).

    I doubt it.

    Other anime are able to make specials and movies for their anniversaries because they're able to. In Pokémon's case, it would be too much to make a special while they're working on the Show. Oh sure, they make specials/movies while simultaneously working on the show, but IMHO they seem to get each other's way part of the time...

    That said, perhaps they could do a multi-episode storyline (maybe a whole arc ) after the Kalos League. I can certainly see it. Problem is, I don't think the producers can...

    Oh Arceus in your dimension, please let Missingno return to freak out a new generation!

    I don't think it'd be too much work for them to do another special cuz I mean we got the Origins specials which I'm pretty sure were worked on around the same time as XY's debut episodes.

    The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon was done to test the new dub and also it was very, vey bad.

    Producers don't work on storylines. They promote the show mostly. You're more worried about the writers' ability. I think that they can do a special if they wanted to. The show itself has been good storyline-wise so far, so doing a short special wouldn't be too taxing, like what they did with the ME Specials.
    That'd be you Wendy (Silrunn). Sending me messages because you're a precious snowflake doesn't mean you're going to be listened to. A stranger on the Internet has no real power over me. Keep sending the messages though! I'll frame them and use them as an example of how to deal with people like you.

    P.S. Locking your PM reception just means this goes public. This will go for every message you send.

    I liked it. Seeing Misty again was worth it although whoever voiced Ash in the first version of the special was terrible I'll admit.

    That was Kayzie Rogers and I don't think the dub voices would be an issue if we get a new special for this year's anniversary thankfully. ^^

    Hey, if it weren't for the Games the TV Show wouldn't be around in the first place.

    To promote the 20th anniversary , Ash and Pikachu can unite with all of these mythicals being distributed to battle Team Flare. Or, we can have Ash encounter Misty and Brock and capture Mewtwo. IDK really

    Why would he catch Mewtwo? He never catches legendaries plus he's already made friends with the two Mewtwo currently in existence. ^^;

    For a 20th anniversary special for the anime, I really doubt it now. Nothing big is being announced about it now.

    They could age Ash by a year at least to mark the occasion. That'd be a treat.

    And then watch as he's 10 again in the next series ha ha. I don't think they'll age him just to celebrate 20 years tho.

    The chances or Ash aging are about the same as Ash winning a league and amourshipping becoming canon; in other words it'll never happen.

    How come he never tries to catch a legendary? It's not like all legendaries need to be independent to not cause the world to explode or something. I mean, the catchphrase of the series is "gotta catch' em all!" and his surname is a pun on "Catch Em?
