New Pokémon

Looking at the episode, it looks like Misty and Brock have new Pokemon such as Brock having a Marowak--BigDocFan (talk) 11:11, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Those were most likely just Pokemon from Professor Oak's Laboratory that they sent out, seeing as one of them was Ash's Muk. Playerking95 (talk) 11:17, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
It seems like there was special attention given to the Marowak, with Brock trying very hard to keep it controlled. It's possible he owns that one, after all, you said the main characters were sending their own out, with his Geodude being used as well.--Pikablu (talk) 12:03, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Squirtle and the Squirtle Squad

Should this be noted in the major events section: "Ash's Squirtle and the Squirtle Squad are revealed to reside at Professor Oak's Laboratory". Now that they appeared in this episode? Satsjoe (talk) 11:59, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

References to other series

Maybe I'm looking too deep into this but could Meowth's mecha in this episode possibly be a reference to Mobile Fighter G Gundam? Because the inside of the mecha seems to resemble the inside of the mechas of the series as well as his wristbands in the mech similar to that of the Mobile Trace System in the series. I'm probably thinking this too much but just wondering. Thanks ahead.Nikuriku (talk) 15:46, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Some people on Twitter seem to agree and I think they look similar too, so I think it's enough evidence to say it's a reference. I guess you can add it. Playerking95 (talk)

Cerulean Gym

I can't take credit for the insight (link with that observation here -> http://pokeshipping.tumblr.com/post/165330460477/0chazuke-random-things-you-can-notice-when-youre) but is it trivia worthy that the new Cerulean Gym appears based off of the Yokohama Hakkejima Sea Paradise Aqua Museum?

Bewear

Since Bewear followed Team Rocket all the way to Kanto and took them away like it always does, does that mean it took them back to Alola? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 21:26, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

At the moment, to be confirmed but most likely as Bewear doesn't have a den in Kanto.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:27, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Just wait for next week. It's pointless wasting time and energy to ask questions that are most likely going to be answered in TRT's next appearance anyway. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:38, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Horsea Gen I reference

When Lana mentions wanting to see Horsea and Seadra, Horsea was shown with two fins. Is this a reference to its original Gen I artwork? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 22:24, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Highly likely given the nature of the episode. Added. --HoennMaster 02:47, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Wait, is he or is he not a gym leader?

Hi.

The main summary page indicates that Brock is the gym leader of Pewter Gym. However, the Poke Problem segments indicate that Forrest is still the Gym Leader there. Should we alter the main summary page? Because the way it's currently written makes it seem as though Brock was the actual gym leader currently which causes some potential plot problems especially given the Poke Problem segment.

Mew's TV debut

It says Mew debuted in both DP092 and SM042. It was first seen in DP092 in a fantasy, and appeared phisically in SM042. However it can't debut in two episodes. Which one should count as its real debut?

Given the fact this was its physical debut, I would call it this one--BigDocFan (talk) 19:06, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
So we should remove it in DP092? TossedDwarf5019 (talk) 19:13, 27 September 2017 (UTC).
I've never been clear on our rules about fantasies; I believe in some instances we've done a "debut (fantasy)" and a "debut (physical)", while in other instances we've just counted the physical debut as the only debut. Whatever we decide to do, we should probably find other Pokemon whose debuts have been split like that, and make it consistent with them. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 20:17, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
