Default The two mysterious trainers?!?!?! One of the biggest unsolved pokemon mysteries!

In the beginning, when ash went on his journey, the three pokemon starters were taken. The squirtle Im 99% sure was the one taken by Gary. But what about the Chamander and Bulbasaur? Do you think we will ever find out. Or will this just be left out in the storyline? If they were to be revieled later I can guarantee the bulbasaur was taken by a girl like in leaf green and that she is a cooordinater or something.

Hmmm...that is quite a mystery. But I doubt the writers will ever touch upon it seeing how it is not so essential to the storyline.

Not really that important. There were probably 2 other trainers who left on the journey around the same time as Ash & Gary. They were mentioned once or twice. Just before the Pokemon League began, it was said that only Ash & Gary completed the Gym challenge, and the others who started out couldn't really hack it.

Maybe they might add them in a season,
In a pokemon center Ash retells his story of how he got pikachu,
and the trainer(s) over hear.

They show you who took them in the first Pokemon movie. It's not a mystery. Everyone knows Gary got an Eevee.

I assuming you're basing that on the fact that one of the other trainers in "Mewtwo Strikes Back" has a Blastoise and another has a Venusaur. However, it doesn't follow that those are the same trainers who started on the same day as Ash and Gary; if you think about it, most kids in Kanto (Ash being one of the exceptions) start with a Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. In fact, I'm inclined to suspect that Neesha and Corey (the two trainers from the First Movie) just happened to have a Blastoise and a Venusaur on their respective teams.

As for the other trainers who started on the same day as Ash and Gary, the most likely explanation is that they were a plot device to have Ash miss out on getting one of the Kanto starters when he began his journey, meaning he got Pikachu instead.

Interesting conversation.

I doubt we'll ever see the other 2, or maybe they were just out in the field with a lab assistant that day, or maybe they were sick and Nurse Joy was taking care of them. There are lots of possibilities.

its hard to say. It would have been interesting to see them, but we never will.... Of course i always thought the show would have been better if Ash actually started with a starter. but thats just me.

That could be true, but I think his starter was his pikachu due to their close bond.

Wasn't the Charmander taken by the abusive trainer, Damion? The guy who left it out in the rain to almost die, but Ash rescues it? Could be wrong, feels like forever ago...
