How accurate is the stuff Pokejungle is reporting on their site?

  • "Fire resists Fairy. Fairy takes normal damage from fire."
  • "You can opt to Mega-Evolve when you choose a move. You can use the move you chose after you Mega Evolve too"

EDIT: Derp. Misread it. Carry on.

Nope, Ash will always be the protagonist long after we have all died.



Getting rid of Ash wouldn't fix the show problems. It's amazing how people keep forgetting that the Pokémon Animé is a 22 minute advert for the Pokémon game.



Well they kinda have to, since the game is out in two months time.




I remember when I found out about that and I didn't know what hentai was and I typed it into google and my reaction was;

"Oh my god what is that woman doing to that poor octopus?"

Ah fun time. :)

putting in a newbie would at least make it more believable that he would lose.

Ash has been going for over 10 years and still can't get shit done.

Wait what? This could be a lot better than the meandering monster of the week thing we've been getting for the past decade.

Is the Fire thing only for TCG? Because according to Pokebeach's leaks (thus far coming true), that's exactly opposite of what fire is supposed to do.
"It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it. "
That isn't the opposite, it is exactly what the Pokebeach rumor said.

Mm? That's exactly what the rumor says. Fire resists Fairy.


Sounds very interesting. Will be good to get away from Ash and company for a bit. Though I'm afraid it'll only feature the original 151... pity.

I like the style of that anime. Looks different than the current one.

I've wait for a decade for this
Now my heart is too weak to take it
If only they add Blue (girl) into the mix, now I can die in peace, with no regret

Also, cool! Mega-Evolving doesn't take up a turn, so I imagine that can be used for all sorts of strategies!

I think that's awesome and ballsy, personally. If it really is just the original 151... holy shit, nostalgia bombs exploding everywhere. Plus, it'd be a good way for anyone that didn't grow up with them to complain how lame the originals are and how the new designs are cooler.

Everyone else will be squealing like little girls.

It looks like it's more intense, just based on Blastoise's expression and the "oomph" the Geodude/Charmander pic has. I hope it's a tiny bit more violent.

The post on Dengeki makes no mention of this being a series, just says it's broadcast on October 2nd
So an OVA of sorts, maybe?

Yeah. The way it's worded does make it sound more like a one time thing. It's vague, but anime series announcements are typically not worded that way.

Nothing about what we have indicates it's a new series and not a one-off special, but it could well be either.

As noted above, it uses none of the language you'd expect for a new series like starts, begins, new series. Just says 'Broadcast Wednesday Oct 2nd'

Even if its just OVA, I still happy regardless since now I can see Red on screen. Full animated.

Let's hope it's going to be a series, or at least an OVA. I mean, it has Blastoise in it. It's called Origin/Origins/whatever, so you'd expect they'd start at the beginning of the game and not when the starter Pokémon are evolved already. They probably aren't going to cram the whole story in one 20 or 40 minute episode, so a series would seem likely.

Wait actually..is that Crobat on there? Crobat Mega Evolution?
EDIT: Actually, looks like the characters might be for Mewtwo, right? Not that great on japanese.
