That's strange. I honestly don't remember hearing that before. If they considered Mr. Mime one of Ash's Pokemon before PM, then that makes it even more confusing. It still seems like a weird retcon. The notion that they wouldn't want to make it clear that Ash caught Mr. Mime for over twenty years is pretty ridiculous. I don't know if they could have already planning out PM by the time Pokemon Heisei History, but maybe they wanted an excuse to keep Mr. Mime with Ash due to the Detective Pikachu movie and threw that detail out there just in case.Back then in the end of 2018, Pokemon Heisei History counted it as one of his pokémon, and there was very little argument from fandom back then.
