Some random criminals? They're the villains that have had any lasting role in Best Wishes and were said to have created Unova's biggest crisis. What have Team Plasma done? Hide?Originally Posted by KibaLG8
If you meant that Team Rocket being in Kanto means that the only villains who can show up are Team Plasma or random ones, then that argument only works under the assumption that Ash will stay in Unova. I still don't see what makes anyone so sure of this.

confirmed that looker coming back??
Yes. It is confirmed he's coming back.
Pesky forum trolls
it is obvious that N and the seven sages are going to be part of the history of bw s2
Looker is coming back? Where are the receipts? And while we're at it, where are the receipts that I asked for a week ago? The link to the blog that mentioned Team Plasma would be appearing near Dragonspiral Tower or whatever (which never happened). I'm just curious as to where all this information is coming from, because nothing seems to be happening no matter how much leaked intel we seem to be acquiring. :x
unless its Hunter J.
Team Rocket left back to Kanto, so that gives Looker no reason to appear to investigate them now when he could have done so prior. Of course Team Rocket could return in Unova, and if they do, then that means they are setting up the TR VS TP 2-Parter.
tweeted about it. But he gave no context for the appearance.
Giovanni was only involved in the last arc. Otherwise, he's been doing other things in Kanto, so it is hardly unfeasible that Looker could have followed there. As for why Looker didn't follow him back to Unova, Operation Tempest simply didn't last very long. The simple reason is that the writers preferred to focus on Cynthia and Larry instead.Originally Posted by KibaLG8
You should all consider the possibility that Team Plasma didn't just randomly disappear. Looker may have very well arrested them.
Again, you're assuming that the filler saga will still be set in Unova. That is not how the previous two filler sagas worked, and there is no obvious reason for Ash to stay in Unova after having been to every important location.Team Rocket left back to Kanto, so that gives Looker no reason to appear to investigate them now when he could have done so prior. Of course Team Rocket could return in Unova, and if they do, then that means they are setting up the TR VS TP 2-Parter.
You can't say that without having watched the two-parter. I highly doubt that the Meteorite plot ended with Looker vowing to stop Team Plasma in the future, only to never be heard from for nearly two years.So? Looker would still be after Team Plasma, since that what the point of his return in the 2-Parter.
I wonder why he will appear... The post-league events are so mysterious now...
seriously we don't have any clues of what will happen now, it's enjoyable to see all those predictions.
At this point, I really don't care about those "postponed" episodes. I lived for more than a year without Team Plasma, I can live like that for the rest of the saga. No need to hope keenly for an event and end up disappointed if that doesn't happen.

Now I said that the two-partner could air. And because if the date is wrong will be know soon I said that's the two-partner could finally air in December, with the possible date on 27th Decembe as a TV-Special.* Why? Because there's many hints on them.
-First, and the most important, anime-related merchandise mentions Genesect being related to Team Plasma. This is important because Genesect Backstory is tied to Team Plasma. We know that Genesect will appear in the next movie and to be aired the "Plasma issue" has to dissappear at least sightly. And we know that the next trailer will come the next month.
-Second, the Looker's VA comment. I notice one thing that Looker appears in the 2-partner because of Team Plasma and he has an appareance in BW, not in B2W2 (for this reason could be the only "older" scheduled to return in BW1).
-Third, Liepard is confirmed to appear via a calendar that is known to feature pokemon of the movie. And you know that Liepard appears in the 2-partner. And this Liepard is compatible with other Liepard appearing in the League via Kotetsu/Stephan. Hydreigon isn't suspecting at the moment, but Liepard is now.
-Fourth, the BW data broadcast is known until the BW-23 although we only known until BWs2-21 (and BWs2-21 is Umbreon, by the way). I give this not because of Hydreigon, but because there's only three timeslots to that Live Caster and I think that the 27th is a normal timeslot (the 3rd January it's the special, in Japan only New Year it's really special, remember episodes before the Christmas' dinner). And it's very feausible to have stored all the timeslot until the end of the year now.
-Fifth, the Goltik comment. Although we can be sure aout some comment of this "TPCi worker", he's supposed to have some information.
-Sixth, the Unova part of Best Wishes is almost ending. Makes sense to air this two-partner before Unova will end
-And seventh, the producers hasn't removed the previews from anywhere in this series. If TV Tokyo officialy declares the episodes banned, they are changing the preview and deleted the message (that happens with the Porygon episode and the Whiscash episode)
I said that isn't confirmed, but now I think that the 2-partner could air. Specially because the Genesect is tied to Team Plasma and explaining that with Team Plasma itself "banned" isn't the right move.
Now, in the case of this episodes air, what will happen?
-First, the two partner will be aired in the timeslot that's supposed to be, between BW22 and BW25.
-The episodes will have the basic plot that's supposed to air when first happened.
-The episodes will have the opening, ending and eyecatch that is supposed to have when them first aired.
-But the episodes will be edited to remove the scenes that caused to be postponed (this is that Goltik said apparently).
The things that I don't see with Team Plasma is having a central role in the Team Plasma like AgentPierce said in the filler sga that couldn't be in Unova. And Team Rocket will return to the anime after the league, in serious or funny mode.
I also don't get why they need to revisit Kanto for a second time as a saga.

I agree with Cressila92 on this one. Plus, Looker may just be investgating something that may end up getting Adh and the gang going, "What the heck!?"
Confirmed Generation VI:
Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Xerneas, Yveltal, Sylveon, Pancham, Fletchling, Helioptile, Gogoat, Noivern, Vivillon, Talonflame, Skrelp, Clauncher, Spewpa
The denial in this thread is astounding.
Some people like to deny things till the last minute.
Do some of you people even WANT these episodes to air? I mean this is TEAM PLASMA we are talking about. And besides, we are all Pokemon fans on here and as Pokemon fans, wouldn't it make sense to want to see the conclusion to one of BW's earlier arcs (The Meteonite Arc)?
I don't think the skipped episodes airing is 100% yet. I'd give it 90% right now just to be safe.
Looker returning, however, 100% definitely means Team Plasma is coming. Team Rocket is DONE. They retreated, went back to Kanto, are FINISHED in Unova. Looker was never interested in them before, and they are not coming back so soon, so they are not who he's after.

this magazine scan. Notice that the Japanese text for Team Plasma (Plasma Gang) shows up in the header of Looker's section and in the description. The text for Team Rocket (Rocket Gang) does not. His assignment was going after Team Plasma. If he's returning, then so are they, otherwise he has no purpose.
