    It’s pure bias when you try to be “the strongest Mega Evolution” in writing only…

    By that, I mean Mega Charizard X. You rooting for Mega Kangaskhan? Ha ha, no.

  • fan615boy

    is the music they are playing maximum the hormone?

    • Scuura

      I’m pretty sure the song is V Volts by Kamiji Yusuke which is the Pokemon xy opening.

    • xXDGFXx

      … wait… is this the same maximum the hormone from before?

    • Kalis Konig

      First part sounds exactly like Volt lol

  • Mugiwara

    My real name is Alan. Should I be proud of this special? :D

  • Highasthesky

    They knew Ash could never reach ME, so they created an entirety new trainer to fill that role. This is my conclusion.

  • konsama

    Man, this is automatically awesome for not having Ash+team rocket in it.

    And the quality looks really nice, we need more stuff like this and Origins.

  • epy

    No Ash? I may watch this. The Origin was really good after all.

  • Slickyslacker

    A trainer named Alan?

    • I can’t help but laugh that it’s quite the opposite in Two and a Half Men. Ash(ton) is the bright, new face while Alan is the old, over-used character.

  • Cephrien

    Can this guy replace Ash please

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Pokemon anime loves Satoshit too much, they won’t ever replace it if I can say :/

  • ZnTxn

    But Mega Charizard X is not that good. :(

    Mega Heracross/Mawile 4ever!!!

    • 하세요

      Mega Charizard X is amazing now that people have sets for it. Certainly stronger than Mega Heracross / Mawile.

      • konsama

        Well my mawile loves to eat multiscale dragonites for breakfast.

        • 하세요

          It’s one of the better ones for sure, but Zard X is a monstrosity. It’s pretty easy to beat the gimmicks of a Mega Mawile if you’re used to one.

  • Herok♞

    Serious question for people in the comments is Ash seriously the only reason you no longer watch the pokemon anime? I seriously doubt that is, after it doesn’t matter if its Ash, or some random guy the normal animes content wouldn’t change. unless they did just make it the same exact plot as the game like Orgins.

    • Anime10121

      My main reason is the “new” dub :/

      Just dont feel like the same characters anymore :(

    • Ash has slowly been the culmination of everything wrong with Pokemon these days.

      We watch him re-grow and defeat these trainers, teaming with the the same archetypes, Team Rocket never wising up…

      They’re all tied to Ash being stagnant… the reason Paul was so intriguing was because he had a wildly different regimen as a trainer and it boosted the novelty of the show.

      We need a new trainer with a new backstory, better villains, character development and better partners. Then make him actually WIN the league, and have a new person do it in another region.

      But I guess that’s not happening, huh?

    • TerrenceEncore Jones

      All the boring filler episodes got to me, as well as the ridiculous hero-power with the pokemon battles.

  • Crevox

    I’m guessing this will probably be their introduction to mega Latios/Latias?

  • isotrex

    Alan? WTF?! Alan?! He’d better be having a badass surname/family name or 2nd name.

    • Rokmoninov

      Alan Ketchup.

      • AuraGuyChris

        Alan Ranch.

        Alan Sauce.

        Alan Mustard.

        Alan Lettuce.

    • Asuna Ilano


  • MaskedHero99

    Thank god I was worried it would suck…ash fucks shit up , Team rocket hella fucks shit up and makes the anime shit

    Man this new one looks unbelievable. Im hyoe for pokemon

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but this will be just a filler again if I can say

      • PotatoPower

        isnt the whole pokemon anime pretty much filler?

        • Renaldi Saputra

          yes, 95% of it

  • Renaldi Saputra

    another useless filler if I can say..

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I’ll watch this. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s about time we got a series without Satoshi (Ash). I watched Pocket Monsters: The Origin and found it enjoyable. I really wished they continued Pocket Monsters: The Origin. It was too short.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      you just need to play the game, that’s all if you want it longer

    • TempestTwin

      Read the Pokemon adventures manga.

      • xXDGFXx

        Really wish they made that into an anime.

        • TempestTwin

          Same here. I wish it was more known too. I always see how people always say how good pokemon origins was, when compared to pokemon adventures pokemon origins is nothing.

          • Harmonic

            Definitely agree with you there. Red was a fucking boss in that series. And while Red was amazing, the also series gave enough time and characterization to every other character that was present.

          • TempestTwin

            Yeah I 100% agree with you. I like how all of the characters from the games all played an important role, including all of the gym leaders. Unlike pokemon origins where half of the story was skipped. It’s pretty frustrating to me knowing how much reception pokemon origins recieved from fans when most of them haven’t bothered to read pokemon adventures.

  • TempestTwin

    I’m still not going to be satisfied until they animate Pokemon Adventures.

  • Kalis Konig

    More Charizard X Whoring

  • Vash bane

    honestly I never played pokemon competitively and may never will. but I do enjoy the games and anime (games for the story and the newer series of the anime for the lolz….sometimes the anime do make me mad every now and then….(those awkard moments where stupidity is over the tops) and now its a show….but I have a bad habit of over thinking things lol)

    this looks cool tho…er whats a charizard X whoring? favoritism?

  • i could see them using this miniseries to announce a new mega-pokemon.

  • WhyWai

    LoL… those flashy effects makes it looks even more like Digimon
