For those of you that still follow the Pokemon anime, a reputable website got an interview with one of the main Pokemon anime directors/storyboard artists. Its an interesting read, so for those who want to see the article. http://pokebeach.com/ Cliffnotes: Basically the interview confirms that Misty will never be a main character again with a "flat-out no" in regards to her return, (although most of us already realized this for years now, this is the first official confirmation directly from the horses mouth), and that she'll only continue to make small cameo appearances in future seasons. Ash seeing Ho-oh is a plot device, we may eventually meet Ash's father in a future season, and that the show didn't want to offend anyone regarding the infamous Porygon and Jynx fiasco. All in all, I found it interesting.
