Pokémon anime info from the original director!
« on: October 15, 2008, 11:42:40 PM »
Ever wondered why they change female character on each season? What was the whole deal about the GS Ball? In a relatively old interview with Masamitsu Hidaka, current storyboard artist of the Anime and original director, all of above info and more is revealed. The following info comes from an interview by PokeBeach on July 4, 2008.

Quote from:  WiiNintendo
- Misty will never return as a main character, but possibly as a guest
- Ash’s grandfather was a great trainer, and Ash’s father followed in his footsteps. So, Ash does have a father, but it’s up to the writers if he will ever appear in the show
- The appearance of Ho-Oh in the first episode was just there to show how special Ash is, since it is never seen by anyone
- The writers originally planned to have Celebi appear from the GS Ball, but since they decided to use Celebi for the 4th movie, they just left the GS Ball as a plot hole that they hoped the viewers would forget about
- The reason why they switch out the female character each generation and not a male is because the girls provide more eye candy for the guys and are more customizable
- The day Ash becomes a Pokémon master is the day the show ends

I suppose it has to finish one day right? because there are many years with the same show.

That's why there are more than 500 episodes according to Serebi.net surpassing other anime series with a huge number of episodes like Dragon Ball Z, Digimon, Naruto, Bleach, etc.
