An Old Family Blend! (Japanese: 熱戦前夜！サトシのポケモン大集合！！ Eve of Battle! Satoshi's Pokémon All Together!!) is the 182nd episode of the Diamond & Pearl series, and the 648th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on June 24, 2010 and is scheduled to air in the United States on November 20, 2010.
The gang has finally reached Lily of the Valley Island and Ash has registered for the Pokémon League. While there, they bump into Conway who has said he will be competing too. Ash has decided to get all of his Reserve Pokémon together for some training and to decide who to use in the league. However, when they arrive in Sinnoh, they all get out of their PokéBalls and are playing about nearby. To top it off, Team Rocket arrives with a dastardly scheme to capture all of Ash's Pokémon. But the Poké Balls get separated from Team Rocket, so Ash and co. searches and finds Totodile, Corphish, Snorlax (Sent by mistake; Oak was supposed to send in Heracross), and Bayleef. Cyndaquil is left, but Team Rocket finds it first. It then uses its new move Flame Wheel to crash into a tree and set it on fire. Ash and the others see the smoke and find it. After the kids put out the fire, they begin to destroy the machine however the mecha fixes itself and Team Rocket goes after Cyndaquil once more. Just as they reach for it, Cyndaquil suddenly evolves into Quilava to protect itself. Quilava immediately learns Eruption to blast off Team Rocket. They then celebrate. After that, Glalie, Torkoal, Heracross, Noctowl and Muk show up so Ash can start his training session. At last, the Sinnoh League starts and Ash's first opponent will be Nando. Who will win?
- In the scene in Oak's lab with Heracross and Bulbasaur, the top of Heracross's horn is missing when Oak checks his list.
