I've a question

As with both the Advanced Generation and Diamond & Pearl series before it, the Best Wishes series begins with only Ash Ketchum, headed off to a new region with his Pikachu.

So far as I've seen, there is absolutely no confirmation that Ash will even be the main character in this series; Japanese fans are throwing around rumors that he's going to be taking Brock's role. So why is speculative crap like that being presented on this page as fact? We don't know anything about the series, and we shouldn't pretend that we do.

But if I'm wrong by all means, point me towards official confirmation of everything mentioned on this page. 梅子 17:40, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

They're probably just going on tradition. It won't be for a very long while until the series starts, so the sentence can just probably be removed altogether until then. Mudkipchan 18:32, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
It comes from the "leaked" sketch of "Iris" it had Ash in BW Guy Protagonist's clothing. While they may have changed their mind and such, since it looked like a rough/beta sketch. "Iris" does match the silhouette of the BW Anime Heroine, and both "Iris" and Ash were pretty much detailed pretty good, so there is a very likely chance (if that's not confirmation) that Ash will be in the B/W series.--Dman dustin 04:00, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
She never said that Ash wouldn't be in the show, though- more that Ash won't be the main character like he always is, and taking on more of a side role like Brock... ▫▫ティナ 04:05, 5 July 2010 (UTC) that really true?--Darknesslover5000 02:20, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

The New Girl

I may have overlooked it, but does anyone have a link to any official confirmation that the name of the new heroine is Iris? --Pkmn veteran 03:52, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Now that I've thought about it, I'm assuming the name came from the leaked line art which was on a Chinese site. Correct me if I'm wrong. --Pkmn veteran 02:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Yep, that sketch is where people are getting it from. --HoennMaster 03:49, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Air date?

When does this series air?--Darknesslover5000 09:57, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Upon the conclusion of the Diamond & Pearl series. It is currently unknown how many more episodes the DP series will have, so it is unknown what date it will air. Werdnae (talk) 10:08, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
alright. thank you--Darknesslover5000 10:25, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Not confirmed

Some of the info (such as Dawn/Brock leaving) has not been explicitly confirmed. Though Dawn's departure is probable, this inbformation is not accurate as it hasn't been confirmed. I'll edit it out for the meanwhile. Bubblewrap 15:25, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Now, I don't know if anyone's flat out said "BROCK AND DAWN ARE NOT IN THE SHOW" but there's been a few official sources which have more or less said they're both out of the show. --ZestyCactus 15:31, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
(I just realised I can't edit this page!). I know those articles do pretty much confirm it - but I'm sure they could be taken in a different way. We haven't seen any official character images, so we can't say for sure even if it looks very likely. I'm not sure, it's not too big of a problem but I think it could be taken the wrong way. Bubblewrap 15:37, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes we have. Brock and Dawn are gone. TTEchidna 23:57, 31 July 2010 (UTC)


Is it official? I remember that such name was only used in a description of the anime that was proven false (the same one saying that Koromori was currently being called "Kurimori" and stuff). The author (some guy from Serebii Forums) came and admitted he created it all. - D-Wheel 00:15, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

The TV Tokyo site calls him Dento. --Shiny Noctowl 00:17, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Would it be... "デント"? "Dent"? Sounds... fine, I guess... and somewhat "western", like Iris, Cheren, Bel, Aloe... - D-Wheel 00:29, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
That's what I was thinking, is it Dento, or Dent? Just curious. Like how Iris' is Airisu(not sure if it is right). --Midnight Blue 00:39, 1 August 2010 (UTC)


This page still refers to Dento as Reimu, a rumor which was proved false a long time ago. --Shiny Noctowl 23:42, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Not in the games.

  • The Best Wishes series is the only anime series since the original series to have no game protagonists among Ash's group, and so far the only anime series not to have any characters who appear in the games among Ash's friends.

How do we know this is the case? For all we know they could be gym leaders. - unsigned comment from Billyt506 (talkcontribs)

Gym Leaders don't count. It's referring to Player characters --HoennMaster 15:04, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Then I guess that trivia is wrong. If gym leaders don't count then the original series also falls into this category. --Billt506 14:08, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Well Ash counts as being based on Red, unless Ash doesn't count. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 14:10, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Dento is a Game Character.....

On, it talks about Dento being a game character, so for now, only Iris is the anime-only character joining Ash's group. So that trivia should be taken down. User:BAC510 August 3rd, 2010 (UTC)

August 3rd, 2010: Dento has been revealed to be a Game Character by Yahoo Japan. There's also a Sugimori Art which confirms this. - unsigned comment from Didich (talkcontribs)

Settle down people. We don't need a million people posting the same thing. It will be updated soon. --HoennMaster 18:39, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
Just wanted to point out that there being Sugimori art of a character doesn't prove anything. I mean in this context it's pretty much confirmed that Dento is a game character, but if having Sugimori artwork were the definitive confirmation for being a game character, then all the movie characters would be game characters, too. 梅子 19:43, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Jenny don't appears in Pokemon Yellow?? User:Hikaru Wazana August 3rd, 2010 (UTC)

That's not the point. :| 梅子 19:56, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Link to page for Iris A page for Iris has been created already, but her name is red.Patrickmck 11:27, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Dammit. We're getting rid of the outdated first Gym Leader only to replace him... with the first Gym Leader. TTEchidna 07:54, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


"The Best Wishes series is the only anime series since the original series to have no in-game playable characters present in Ash's group." How exactly is this true? Brock, Misty and Tracey Sketchit were never player characters. There was Todd Snap sure, but it's not like it specifies that, and he was a temporary traveling companion. Rai Marshall 07:41, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

I think it's because Ash is based on Red.--Pokélova! 07:44, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
I think it refers to May and Dawn joining him in AG and DP. Both of them are counterparts of playable characters in RSE and DPPt. In BW, neither the boy nor the girl from Black and White join him. tc²₆tc26 07:47, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Ash is indeed based on Red, but that piece of trivia specifically mentions 'in-game playable characters present in Ash's group." And the piece of trivia mentions original series, and not AG or DP. Rai Marshall 07:54, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
"The Best Wishes series is the only anime series since the original series to have no in-game playable characters present in Ash's group." Its saying AG and DP have player characters (counterparts), and that the Original and BW series do not. たかはり 07:59, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh I get it now, I misread the darn thing. Gee, I'm sorry everyone. Rai Marshall 08:09, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
I read it wrong too. >_< Sorry.--Pokélova! 10:44, 15 August 2010 (UTC)


Please add [[de:Staffel 14]]. Also, the Japanese link doesn't work (the article does not exist there). Thanks in advance.--Afrael talk 15:23, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
