Ooo, looks like they're focusing on bug types this episode

Is this going to be in Johto, for the Bug Catching Competition?
Much as I would love to see that happen again, the fact that only Generation I Bug Types are featured might imply Kanto

So if Go actually does get to catch all these bugs, I guess that means we shouldn't expect a whole lot of his Pokemon to get characterization? Similar to Red in Origins, where he just catches stuff

I don't mind if that's the case, if Go's goal is to 'catch lots of Pokemon' yet he ends his course on the cast with less than 10-15 Pokemon, then needless to say it'd be quite underwhelming! Perhaps it could even be a plot point later, Go sees how close Ash is with all of his Pokemon and realizes having 100+ Pokemon isn't a good thing if he's never spent time with any of them save for Scorbunny

He might actually use Scyther since it was included in some merchandise alongside Charizard and others. Plus, its False Swipe move is ideal for catching.

I'm hoping that Venonat and Venomoth get some time to shine in this episode

Well, interestingly the only Pokémon that can be captured in the Bug Catching Competition are Kanto Pokemon. But the episode in Johto is a couple episodes apart from this one.

I still feel a bit odd about jumping from one region to another, wonder how it’s actually going to be.

True but would love to see Bug types from all regions featured more more variety

Oh I love Bug Pokémon, I’d be so happy if Gou caught one for his regular team- though a Gen 1 Bug type isn’t super enthralling...

Would love to see Go get a Scyther as Tracey's got very little screen time, maybe evolve into Scizor through a trade back evolution

Since this episode will probably focus more on Gou's goal of catching all Pokemon and find Mew It'll be very cool withn Gou has a bug type in his Pokemon team. One of my expectations of him catching a bug type is probably a Scyther or Pinsir for episode 6.

Would certainly be nice to see Go catch a bug type, I'm hoping Scyther as it hasn't had much focus in the anime
