Thread: Predictions for Charizard for the rest of this arc?

  1. #1

    Default Predictions for Charizard for the rest of this arc?

    Most people would agree that charizards appearance in black and white has been somewhat redundant as he hasn't had any really important roles. Is there any chance for him to do anything noteworthy in his short period of time with ash?

    Probably not. IMO, they just put him back in to say to the old fans "Hey! Look! Old character!"

    "Just take a step back, and look at what you really want."

    As in big battles? Well, let's look at the known remaining episodes:

    Oshawott: Nope
    Zoroark: Probably not.
    Oak: Nope, probably going to focus on Oak and electric Pokemon.
    Croconaw Pirates: Noooo
    Butterfree: No, it'll focus on Butterfree mostly.
    Beehehyem: Probably not.
    TR & Emonga: Uh...nope?
    Ash vs Iris: Potentially if there's a battle, but if not..it might only be used to blast off TRio.
    Jirachi: Nope
    Evolutionary Stones: .....
    Clair: Highest possible chance right here, but then again...it's already beaten Clair.

    There could be more episodes we don't know about, but as it stands now..it's not looking like Charizard will get anything big.

    The Clare episode, maybe Lance will show up as well, and Charizard will battle Lance?

    Charizard's return to the team is sad. He feels the same way he did in early Johto before Ash left him behind, he was pretty much useless outside of the first Johto Gym and did little in fillers.

    God I am having early johto flashbacks.

    I agree. Charizard's return episode was great...but like many things with BW nothing really came from it

    They pretty much just did it to say "See old fans? We care about you, we brought charizard back to Ash"s team...and that's it."

    And about 80% of the kids watching Best Wishes today have never seen a single Kanto episode. Lol.

    Some of seem to forget that charizard is just a regular team member this time. He returned under no special conditions. He has the same importance as Scraggy, Pignite, Oshawott, etc on Ash's team. Of course he's doing these small tasks like his other team mates do. He'll do something eventually, probably near the end of DA!

    I would imagine a lot of BW's viewers watch smash and see the reruns.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    I am just happy to see one of Ash's prior pokemon back on the team. Charizard was also brought back to show that Charizard is Ash's other strongest bond out of any of his pokemon minus pikachu.

    Which is favortism. When Ash saw that Buizel/Corphish he didn't bring back his own.

    Yup, and I think Ash wouldn't admit it, despite us all knowing the truth.

    And nothing has come of it other than it searching for the lost baby pokemon.

    Ash should beat Zekrom with Charizard and get revenge for resetting him and Pikachu.

    He's probulay here as an excuse for Ash to have a fully evolved starter in his team and also for old times sakes. But I do hope something big happens. (relearn Seismic Toss?)

    Helped Pignite and created a friendship with him, had that thing with Dragonite and now is a good buddy with him, had that nice team moment along with Pikachu, Oshawott, etc, helped looking for the missing pokemon along Dragonite.

    Like I said he came back to be part of the team, thats being part of the team.

    Charizard is subbing for the role of Generic Regional Bird.

    Unfortunately for him, there aren't as many balloons to pop or things to find with Team Rocket keeping their distance.

    I think it definitely has a chance of appearing in the Zoroark episode, being sent in against what might be an illusion or what not:
    - Giant Heatmor appears
    - Ash's response: I'll send in Oshawott!

    Of course not, you send in your Charizard to fight fire with fire!

    Yes, definitely same importance as Scraggy, last time I checked it appeared before Episode N even started.. -.-

    Actually I think he will use Oshawott in the actual ep. It's his go to Pokemon if pikachu is unavailable.

    Charizard being treated this way is laughable.

    I wish they brought back Gible instead.

    Charizard will probably continue doing Unfezant's job. I mean there hardly seem to be any battles in DA so I can't see Charizard battling much, and even if he did it would be against weak opponents. I really don't know why the writers even bothered bringing him back in the first place. I mean the ratings didn't receive a huge boost anyway, so I'm starting to think that he shouldn't have returned . It's just sad seeing him mishandled like this.
