    Default Team Plasma and Pierce to potentially return?

    Masaki Iwane is one of the chief animators of the anime, and he has a blog where he frequently answers questions and comments from people. Just a whie back, he answered two specific comments. From "Batman", it was a statement hoping that Team Plasma would appear, possibly near Dragonspiral Tower, and from "Suzaku", it was a question about what happened to Pierce and if the postponed TR vs. TP two-parter was meant to be his final appearance.

    Iwane's answer's translate to:

    1. "Possibly near Sekka City (Iccirus City), yes. Please look forward to Plasma Gang (Team Plasma).

    2. "Only Dr. Seger (Zager) frequently appears presently, but....."

    The "please look forward to Plasma Gang" is a big deal, as it's highly unlikely Iwane would say that if there were no plans for Team Plasma to return, as he's very polite and respectful toward his fans, and his "look forward to" type of comments in the past have been sincere.

    And the "but...." trailing off to end his response to "Suzaku" about Pierce also indicates that Pierce may just make a comeback after all.

    Anyway, I'm very excited about these responses. Thoughts?

    EDIT NOTE (PLEASE READ): Slight alteration: "Possibly near Sekka City, yes." is actually said in regards to Batman asking if the "Brycen and the Holy Mountain of Volcarona" episode occurs near Sekka City, to which Iwane says it does. The "Please look forward to Plasma Gang" is said in response to him saying he hopes they show up at Dragonspiral Tower, which means they are likely showing up there (which is still technically near Sekka City anyway, so the point still stands.....)

    I am more amused by the fact that Batman has an interest in the Pokemon anime. I didn't know they liked the caped crusader over there.

    I hope Giovanni returns most of all.

    Wasn't Iwane the one confirming Palpitoad for Elesa's gym battle?

    If yes, then I think we can give him the benefit of the doubt. Though, I'd rather wait and see what will happen.

    Hey, Batman likes watching children's shows. It helps him return to a time before HIS PARENTS ARE DEAD!! Though I think he'd be against Homika, since we all know Batman hates rock and roll.

    Yes, I knew they'd be showing Team Plasma again. You can't exactly remove something so vital to the plot of the show forever. Given that TP is arriving, I predict the following will happen:
    * N will appear first episode, or at the very least he will be hinted at. And he will have fangirls in-universe, because he's sexy.
    * Team Plasma may or may not show their hypocrisy by kicking a Munna
    * Team Rocket will be amused by their "release your Pokemon, or we'll sick ours at you" creed, and the higher-ups will see through the Tauros***
    * Jessie and/or James will be seen with new Pokemon(Tynamo and Maractus will probably be this for them)

    Honestly, I'm feeling pretty betrayed here.

    I discover some very interesting hints to the future on Iwane's blog, and I share and confirm them with this board, hoping it'll make people happy.

    Instead, all sorts of STUPID people decide to spam Iwane's blog asking dumb questions about a multitude of other dumb topics, expecting results, even though he's an animator and not a writer, he can't flat-out reveal anything, and we were extremely lucky to even GET such hints like the ones I initially posted at all! We probably won't get ANY more of those hints like them in the future if you ****ing morons are going to abuse the man like this. So please, will you kindly STOP?

    Sigh. The next time I find interesting Pokemon info that fans would really want to hear about....I'm keeping it all to myself.

    It's not exactly confirmed. And while I do want to treat this information as carefully, and respectfully as can be, I'm on the negative side of Dragonspiral Tower actually happening. There's already too much fluff going on after Brycen's gym that I don't think it to be reasonable for them to do a Dragonspiral 2parter..
    - Gym
    - Cilan episode
    - Iris episode
    - Random episode
    - Homika episode
    - Dragonspiral 2parter?

    Why so much fluff in between locations that are right next to each other????

    It's called the calm before the storm. I mean, the Team Galactic three parter wasn't exactly preceded by episode with the same tone as their's. Same with the Team Magma vs Aqua two parter (bad as it may be).

    You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!

    Well look how long it took from Castelia to Nimbasa. I can see Icirrus to opelucid as a loong way.

    All those episodes, then Dragonspiral two parter, then one or two episodes covering Tubeline Bridge and Shop[ping Mall Nine. Then around 2/3 episodes at the Village of Dragons.

    Homika's episode is before the bigarse Team Plasma two-parter? Now, I'm not saying that it's confirmed to be right after that particular episode, but wouldn't that mean that Ash and pals'd be in an entirely different city to Icirrus? If Homika's appearing so closely after Brycen's Gym Battle, then does this have any particular effect on where her Gym will be located in the games?

    Homika will probably be part of a traveling band in the anime, not at her actual Gym.

    Gym, Cilan and Iris episodes and possibly that "random episode" can happen in Icirrus City. We can't expect them to reach Dragonspiral Tower if they keep staying in the same place. Basically, there is still hope!

    Hey, it's at least a possibility. Add this with the fact Team Plasma is a part of the plot, and I be optimistic

    I really hope this is true and is going to happen, because we all know Iccurus city is right around the corner now, so many answers that might finally be explained.

    I'll be cautiously optimistic about these for now. Unless an official announcement about Team Plasma is going to be made soon, I do find it a little hard to believe that such a major turn of events would be revealed in such a way. I would rather wait until we hear a little more before I get my hopes up too high.

    The Pierce comment is interesting because it implies Giovanni really did only pull his forces out of Unova temporarily. I get the feeling that if there actually is going to be a Team Plasma arc at Dragonspiral Tower, the upcoming Tirtouga arc might be a stage-setter for it and Giovanni could be planning to make his move to get the Light Stone first.

    Did Iwane not say anything about the banned episodes? I would think that if we were only a couple months off of Team Plasma they would have to air soon first.

    With the Pierce thing, it wasn't a reveal, just a hint. And with Team Plasma, it's pretty much a gurantee that they'll show up, but I doubt Iwane considers that major since their return was probably already planned out even before the disaster postponed their debut, and he still isn't 100% confirming when they'll return (he says MAYBE near Iccirus City, which is not a final answer, though it does admittedly hint at Dragonspiral Tower), he's just saying that they haven't been forgotten about and that fans can look forward to their appearance.

    He's talked about them before and I only know for sure that he's said that:

    1. No editing has been done to them (to change scenes or fit into a new frame of time), as far as he knows. If they air, they'll air as they were made.

    2. He wants them to be aired, but he has no say in when that happens; that's TV Tokyo's call. So asking him when they'll air is pointless.

    I doubt anything in the anime has changed because of those episodes postponement. The events in the anime that have unfolded would have happened even if the disaster hadn't occured and the episodes had aired. So I doubt they'll act as if the postponed episodes didn't happen, and I personally hope they'll air them before Team Plasma returns.

    Why are folks so agitated and/or excited?

    Team Plasma is TRocket with different uniforms and different pokemon......

    They probably will be in a Dragontower 2-parter and never heard from again. No 'N', no Geechisu.

    So, what's the point of any character if they just look different and have different Pokemon?

    I don't care if N or Ghetsis appear. I want a follow-up to the banned episodes.

    It would be cool if these episodes were all in a row. A nice arc with a sequence of action packed episodes, and put a start and maybe an end (hopefully not) to the TP adventure in the anime and no more people hating on the delay of the double parter

    I personally reckon we may have had an appearance in Nimbasa or Driftveil if the episodes wasn't postponed, but either way i just don't want the TR vs TP episodes retconned, because however disappointing it's still possible.

    No way. I wouldn't mind watching the episodes back to back, but i don't want to see TR vs TP retconned to fit the events here.
