Seasoned yet jaded Pokémon fans, still set in their ways in assisting that anything in the Pokédex listed under Mew is but mere pale imitation of glory days, had their feathers ruffled earlier this year. The latest anime feature film, Pokémon: I Choose You, acted as an alternate retelling of Ash’s Kanto adventure – with the biggest notable difference being the absence of his travelling companions, Misty and Brock.
They haven’t been forgotten however – as Japan’s Telubi-kun magazine has revealed a brief return of the former main characters, as part of the Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon television anime.
Briefly returning to Kanto for a school project, Ash will revisit his old Pokémon, as well as old companions Brock and Misty in a pair of episodes airing in Japan on 14th and 21st September. Details are scarce at this point, other than Brock having a Mega Steelix and Misty, a Mega Gyarados.
What do you think of this news – and their updated designs?
