    Why would anyone be "concerned" because the majority of Ash's old Pokemon have been ignored? I thought it became apparent a while ago that the writers would focus on his Unova Pokemon, which haven't developed much and are in dire need of more attention. I mean when was it even implied that Ash would suddenly bring back several of his old Pokemon? Just because Charizard was featured on some merchandise and some posters? The best that guaranteed is that he's coming back, but that says nothing about Ash's Oak'd Pokemon.

    Other than Charizard they won't be used in this arc but that doesn't mean won't get one last tournament arc before the series ends, so don't say this untill BW series actually ends.

    I think Bulbasaur and Corphish still have a good shot at making an appearance.

    But no, Gabite and Croconaw are most likely not happening which for some reason is what most people here want.

    i hope not i would like to see some of ash's other pokemon return preferbly his rarely used pokemon such as muk and kingler just to see how N reacts to them. why? because they so rarely used and i dont know if they train so i want to know what they think of ash especially considering the fact ash never really bonded with them that much do to them being rarely called upon.

    Muk, Kingler, and Totodile are probably the main ones that will never see a battle again. Granted two of them appeared in the Sinnoh league, but that was about it lol.

    I wouldn't say that at all; they all have equal chances to appear.. Don't forget that to this day, Muk and Kingler are Ash's only fully evolved Pokémon of their respective types and can therefore be really useful in battles.. Totodile is a starter, he'll pop up from time to time just like the others..

    Muk's appearance alone should give hope for other reserves to appear.

    There's been no saga where Ash's traveling companions haven't witnessed Ash's Pokemon staying with Oak or anyone else, so why worry? Even if the appearances are just cameos of them chilling in Oak's garden of goodness, it's still an appearance.

    I was really hoping Gible would return to get the Phanpy treatment, (and it meeting Iris was a given), as well as see some of Ash's other older Pokemon that we haven't seen in a while.

    But knowing most of this arc is about Team Plasma and only seeing Charizard is making me curious. So far the writers have always had Ash bring back older Pokemon for the tail-end of a generation, because once the new one starts he goes fresh again. I think there may simply be nothing to bring the others back for this time.
    No I don't watch the series anymore so it won't affect me..... though in all seriousness would it actually make sense for him to appear? Not much of the younger gen of fans (which is the anime target audience) would actually know who he is so to them really it would be a random Pokemon that Ash owns so the impact of him coming back won't be much. Also how would it fit in with the story I mean having Charizard appear for no reason would be pointless and remember there are older fans that are hating on this series so the appearance of an old Pokemon would be seen as a huge waste for a series that they hate. Unless it improves the ratings none of his old Pokemon would be making much of an appearance

    I think that Ash older pokemon could come back apart from Charizard. It will be a select few but they will appear. The difference with Charizard and the other is 1) that his return will be epic, 2) that Charizard will be the star of the arc and 3) Charizard will have a big role in the movie. For this reason Charizard is getting a lot of merchandise, the movie being the main one.

    You can't say that no older pokemon apart from Charizard will appear because:
    -We don't know how Charizard will came to the anime. And we don't know why Charizard appears in the anime. And we know that Charizard won't fly himself from Johto to Unova. The most probable ways that Charizard will come would be through Liza (or a Charific character), through Oak's system (are connected with Juniper?) and through Dawn (the least probable).
    -We are in the ending of a gneration. Now this is the moment where Ash's pokemon could get a good showing. Now that promotion of Gen V doesn't matter much and promotion of Gen VI hasn't started yet is the perfect time to showcase older pokemon. It's true that one of the only few things confirmed in XY is that older pokemon will return but new pokemon takes preference.
    -The League wasn't the time to show his reserves. Apart from possible dissapointments, you must remember that 80% of Unova League saga was only ewith new pokemon. Remember that the League was planned to have only Gen V pokemon. What the writers do is to give the Samurott rival an older pokemon to promote and give the winner of the league a "marketable" promotion.
    -And we don't know that will be no battles. I expect two big battles directly or undirectly related to Team Plasma. And I see three main ways of showing battles:
    -PWT "Senior Cup" with 8 participants, 3 round and where Ash and Colress fight (NOT Iris and NOT Cilan). The main battle would be Ash vs Colress. Ash wins. After that, Ash vs N (B vs W) (6vs6) and Ash vs Ghetsis? (6vs6)?
    - Ash vs Colress (3vs3 to 5vs5), Ash vs N (6vs6) and a last tournament to give farewell to the sidekick's rivalries.
    -My freaking idea based on the games where N wins the League with his Reshiram. Ash vs Elite 4 (3vs3, 4vs4 at MOST) and Ash vs N (6vs6) will be the battles.
    I think that Pokemon is beautiful and has its charm

    Note: I decided to not post post that had cause hate to me anymore. If you see one, please PM me and I will delete the moment I'm aware and I'm online.

    I need to take a break in the anime forum because these forum bored me.

    There's no need for any of Ash's older Pokemon to appear. Hell, I question whether Charizard coming back is absolutely necessary.
