New Pokémon Movie Rewrites History, Ditches Brock And Misty

New Pokémon Movie Rewrites History, Ditches Brock And Misty”

As reported by Kotaku, Ash is not accompanied by Brock and Misty during his adventures in the upcoming 20th Pokemon film, which recounts Ash's earliest adventures in the anime. A lot of fans were anxious that Souji and Makato would serve as replacements for Brock and Misty in the film after trailers failed to feature the characters and it seems like they were proven right.

It's such a shame that the producers chose to replace Brock and Misty in Pokemon the Movie - after all the two played a big part in the original anime series and are as nearly as popular as Ash himself. During the end credits, there's a montage that features Ash's companions from throughout the franchise, alongside the likes of Tracey, Dawn, and Cilan.

As Pokémon prepares to retell its "Indigo League Saga" for the 21st Century, creators of the anime movie have chose to retcon two major human characters. Pokecenter's mainstay Nurse Joy, who appears largely unchanged from when she first appeared in the series, is still in the movie, but it looks like the boy Souji would not be making a pass at her, which is what Brock became known for.

It's worth noting that not all of the established characters from the Indigo League era have been replaced for the new movie.

As two gym leaders - and then later friends of Ash - they appeared in dozens of episodes and several feature-length movies.

Makoto's on the left; Souji, the right. Misty is even replaced by Makoto in one iconic scene from the original anime where Ash and Pikachu fight off a flock of angry Spearow after leaving Viridian City. On a less cynical assumption, Comicbook says that it could also be the producers' way to make it clear that this movie exists outside of the show's continuity.

In another odd turn of events, it appears that the anime also won't be addressing the fact that Ash Ketchum has been a 10-year-old for the past 20 years. Since I Choose You is meant to be a celebration of the series' twentieth anniversary, the fact that two memorable characters are being snubbed in this way hasn't gone down too well.
