Um, why?

Why is this not the Cosplay Pikachu episode, with Ash's Pikachu? Is there any reason why that episode is being completely ignored? --Dman dustin (talk) 15:32, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Cosplay Pikachu is a type of Pikachu short, so it will not be considered as an episode, i don't know why there hasn't been any page till now --Pratik_12 Talk 17:21, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't get it, Ash, Serena, Bonnie, and Clemont and other human characters will appear within the "episode" why is it suddenly a Pikachu short just because it has lots of Pikachu? Pikachu's Goodbye wasn't considered a Pikachu short. --Dman dustin (talk) 11:50, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
I know, it is airing as a special but not in between episodes, it will be airing along XY077, not in place of it, so maybe, which category it should be categorized, as a Pikachu Short (not maybe) or Special Episode, like how Mega Evolution and Chronicles are categorized --Pratik_12 Talk 13:26, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
We've had one hour specials before, so then BW047 and BW048 are not actual episodes in the 5th generation. All I know is that Ash, Serena, Clemont and Bonnie are in it, actually are going to participate in it, even if they are spectators, as well as another human character. Do not know why that somehow takes away from it being the episode, since even if you can argue its split in 4 different titles, those titles are related to each other, they have the same characters, and it adds up to being normal episode length. Honestly it would be no different than if any episode were to be split in acts or chapters. It's probably not going to be any different than BW052, or XY051 only a more Pikachu stylized version. --Dman dustin (talk) 15:15, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
Can someone add Cosplay Pikachu shorts already since they are out? Pikachu65 (talk) 11:03, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Pikachu's Poké Ball

Ash Pikachu Poké Ball.png

Ash's Pikachu's Poké Ball had a lightning bolt pattern on it ever since its debut. In past episodes when the Poké Ball appeared, it had the pattern. This picture, which is not from Pokémon - I Choose You!, shows that in flashback scenes, it did appear. Throughout this episode, it was lacking said pattern. How come the absence of that bolt throughout this episode is not listed as a mistake? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 20:54, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

The lightning bolt didn't appear on the ball at any point after its debut that wasn't a flashback to aforementioned debut. Clearly the lightning bolt was removed from the ball for whatever reason. It didn't show up on the ball in Pewter Gym when Ash tried to withdraw Pikachu, it didn't show up when Ash had out Pikachu's ball at the Battle Chateau... all things considered, it seems pretty clear to me that it's intended to no longer have the lightning bolt. - unsigned comment from Missingno.

I think that the lightning bolt Poké Ball is not Pikachu's one. In the first episode, Ash must choose between the 3 original starters. Their names are written on the Poké Balls so that new trainers can know which starter is in the Ball. These Balls are empty because Gary and others already chose their Pokémon before Ash but they are still in Oak's lab. They just serve to "introduce" the starters. When a starter is chosen, it is put in a classical Poké Ball. This is probably the same for the lightning bolt Poké Ball and that's why we only see it at the first episode (and flashbacks).

Then why in later episodes when a starter Pokémon is chosen, the regional professors hand the new trainer a Poké Ball and says it is the Pokémon's and the Poké Ball recalls them instead of catches them? Examples showing starter Pokémon returning to their Poké Balls without a problem after being chosen include May's Blaziken, Dawn's Piplup, Trip's Serperior, Ash's Oshawott and Frogadier, and Serena's Braixen. They are already marked in that Poké Ball and can't be caught in another one. Such was the case in Two Degrees of Separation! when Dawn tried to catch Ash's Pikachu when she thought he was wild.--PKMNAdventurer (talk) 18:20, 27 June 2015 (UTC)


Teletoon on Demand

Should it be added that both XY077 and XY079 were added to Teletoon On Demand despite the mistake? MatrVincent (talk) 17:57, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
