This Movie doesn't show Pokemon from the next Gen?

I just noticed that unlike...

  • (Gen 1) Mewtwo Strikes Back and Pokemon Movie 2000 which showcased Gen 2 Pokemon
  • (Gen 2) Pokemon Heroes which showcased Gen 3 Pokemon
  • (Gen 3) Destiny Deoxys, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and Pokemon Rangers and the Mansion of the Sea showcased Gen 4 Pokemon
  • (Gen 4) Zoroark the Master of Illusion showcased Gen 5 Pokemon
  • (Gen 5) Genosect and the Legend Awakened showcased Gen 6 Pokemon
  • (Gen 6) Volcanian and the Mechanical Marvel showcased Gen 7 Pokemon

This movie which is a remake to Mewtwo Strikes Back showcased no Gen 8 Pokemon whatsoever.

Yeah, that is pretty weird. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:25, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
So...? TheFatPanda (talk) 00:05, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
I guess the user wants to include a point of trivia about that here. While I don't think that would fit in this article, specifically, I've edited the Sun & Moon series article's "Trivia" section to reflect that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:06, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Covering the movie in related articles

People seem to have started covering the movie in character articles in a way which seems redundant: making a separate "In M22" section that says "[character] appeared in MSB’s remake, where they serve the same role as in the original".

Personally, I suggest we approach documenting the movie in the same way as with the two versions of M14: just have a single summary of what the characters do in the movie, while noting any differences should they come up. TheFatPanda (talk) 20:14, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

M14 is different because it was a movie multi-pack that was released at the same time. M22 is a remake of a movie that was released around two decades ago. And considering the differences between the two movies, it can be said M22 is set in a continuity different from M01's no matter how slight. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:51, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

English title

Is there a source for the English title that has been provided? I'm using Serebii and I don't think it was ever confirmed there, at least from the homepage perspective. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

It appears that the title is the English title used for the Anime Expo screening, but won't necessarily be the dub title. --SnorlaxMonster 09:16, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
I see. So should this information be removed from the article, then? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:19, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
