Drifloon, A 1st Generation Pokemon? Feb. 12th, 2012 @ 07:09 PM Reply

This topic is gonna be more about the animated series, more than the game, but it's Pokemon, based off the games. Well for nostalgic reasons, I've been watching the Pokemon series again! I came by an episode I hadn't seen in such a long time, almost where I couldn't remember it.

This episode is episode 20, "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak", which is where Ash & friends finally reach the mainlands after the whole Tentacool and Tentacruel incident, and they make it just in time for a end of Summer festival, and Brock falls in love with the ghost, as does James. This episode was really strange, watching it again, I can go on and on about how overpowered Gastly was and the fact that it could actually talk in the episode, and that he did a fusion-ha between Venasaur and Blastoise!

I'm rambling now, lets get to the point of this topic, after the battle with Gastly is over, the town folk all light up these little boats and something with something finding their way, but they had pictures of Pokemon on the little boats, they had common ones like Rattata and Omanyte, but there was one that, to me, looked like Drifloon, a 4th generation Pokemon, I mean I can probably be mistaking it for a flower but still, it wouldn't be the first time the series pulled off later generation Pokemon within the Kanto region. I mean, remember Episode 1, Ho-oh! That is all!

I just found it pretty interesting, just wanted to share it with all it's details with the Forums, any of you guys spot these kinds of things withing the series?

Maybe. I've heard (I forgot where) that they had at least a thousand Pokemon ideas when they made Red/Green/Blue

I can see the likeness, but I would assume it's just a coincidence. If it was intentional, it would've been a gen 2, or at the latest 3 pokemon. 4's to late, I doubt they remembered that episode, or the concept art for any pokemon that far back.

But maybe it's a bad bellsprout or something.

In Pokemon Red/Blue, on the route north of Lavender Town, there's a girl who asks why there isn't a pink pokemon with floral spots.

In generation 5, they introduce Munna, a pink pokemon with floral spots.

Whose evolutionary form just so happens to be the best damn Pokemon of all time.
