Well, there's more info on the Japanese Pokemon site. Found here: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/anima/index.html

旅の途中、夜空を飛ぶフリーザーを目にする。やっと、バトルフロンティアに到着し、そこでバトルファクトリーのダツラと出会う。彼と対戦することになったサトシはリザードンで挑む。がんばれサトシ! がんばれリザードン!

From Excite's translation I see that the gang will see Articuno on their way to the Battle Factory. And that the battle against Noland will involve a Charizard. Not sure who has the Charizard.
 
May the Aura be with you.

Hmm...Could that Articuno later turn up in the Battle Pyramid?

And it has also been noted on the forums recently that Ash needs a strong fire type...

It better be Ash's. I would hate to see Ash battle with a rental Charizard, that's just pathetic.

Seeing Charizard Vs. Articuno would make sense too.

"On their journey, Freezer is seen flying through the night sky. Finally, the gang arrives at the Battle Frontier, where they meet Datsura of the Battle Factory. It is decided that Satoshi will challenge him to a battle with Lizardon. Good luck, Satoshi! Good luck, Lizardon!"

The part of the summary that says Rizaadon de leads me to believe that Satoshi will be the one commanding Lizardon, meaning that one of his most powerful pokemon may be making a return.

If that's true than that will be great.

...wtf.

None of that hints towards Datsura having an Articuno at ALL. Just that one flies overhead. >_>

Well this Pokeani post may have a clue or not whether there will be a battle against Articuno...

I hope it's Ash's Charizard, because the writers may be coming up with a theme here. Ash's 6th slot may be for Pokemon at Oak's or Pokemon that previously left (Squirtle, Charizard).

Ash wouldn't get Squirtle cause May has one with her.

From the quote it seems that Charizard tries to use Overheat on Articuno but is overpowered. Can anyone who's Japanese doesn't suck confirm this? If I'm correct we could indeed be seeing the return of charizard, making this one of Ash's strongest teams ever.
 
Hmm, that's a wonderful idea!

... Considering the rules of the Battle Factory, this isn't necessarily Ash's Charizard.

I'm sure the rivalvary between Charizard and Grovyl will be something like the thing Charizard had with Scyther

Ah, but you have to remember the anime doesn't follow the games rules completely. They changed the way the contests are held and they might as well change the way Battle Factory works.

Anyway, who started the rumour about Charizard vs Articuno? oO; I'm pretty sure Dogasu and Gold Chaos only said it is seen flying.

Yes, it could definitely be Ash's - but if you people start making all these assumptions and it ends up not being Ash's Charizard for whatever reason, I'm just going to laugh. :p

Wouldn't it be weird if he fights with a Charizard that is not his? o_O; Although knowing the scriptwritters... ^^;

You mean the thing that existed for one episode and was then never brought up again?
