Maybe Squirtle, Charizard and/or Goodra (he's gotten too much development to simply be released after less than 20 episodes).
The rest just aren't happening. It's been too long and there's little or no demand. Heck, they didn't seem to want to use Primeape back then, so there's no point thinking they'd give a crap now.
Heck, I don't think that was meant to be a release episode. I for one think that the creative team originally meant for Ash to come back for Pidgeot, but by the time the Orange Islands was over there was little incentive and, well...there were new birds to show off.

Besides, it was his least used or second least used bird (depending on you views of Pidove/Tranqauil/Unfezant) and seldom did anything important or memorable.
