  1. Apparently Ash acts as if he’s never met a Dragonite before in the new episode ಠ_ಠ

      Nothing new, he had this behavior since the Black/White seasons if not even earlier.

      I mean, they can't expect kids to watch 1000 episodes so

      @Ferno what does that have to do with anything?

    4. Ferno


      He met Dragonite(s) in the early seasons right? Like around Indigo League/ Orange Islands? That was way back is all I'm saying so it would kinda make sense to reintroduce it as if it were new for new viewers

      @Ferno why though? The younger crowd go into the show knowing full well that Ash has travelled a lot (the second episode of this series makes that apparent enough) making it logical to assume he would’ve seen a Dragonite at least once during that time. And even if it hadn’t, why would a kid even think to question it? Ash has recognised just about every other pre-Gen VIII Pokemon in this series so far with no problems.

      The anime writers had absolutely nothing to gain from doing this.

      That's fair yeah

      @Ferno Narrative 101: that's what flashbacks are for, it literally could have take the span of 10-20 seconds by having a small clip of an episode where Ash had met a Dragonite and then back to the present with him saying "yeah, i remember seeing them in the past", even without having to be specific about it.


      If they wanted to have a case of having each new season being a fresh start they should have done like the games and have different protagonists for each with their own set of supporting characters; making your recurring protagonist dumb and ignoring continuity for the sake of not alienating newcomers (on top of the other problems the show has been suffering for a while now) is a hard thing for me to justify.

      Or they could’ve just removed the implication altogther. The line in question is “Dragonite, huh? I’d like to meet one!”

      They could’ve just had him say the first half and leave it there, not explicitely indicating one way or the other if he’s ever seen one before.
