    It may be, but there are a few changes that it may just be accidental.

    I don't mean to say it's exactly identical to Optimus Prime, it just sort of blew my mind when I first saw it and thought I'd bring it up. At least it's consistently coloured and modelled, unlike Pat Lee's Optimus Prime truck modes.

    I guess if you want it to look like Optimus Prime, it sorta does. If you didn't mention it, I wouldn't have noticed at all.

    In one episode, Team rocket had this black box(or something) that transformed into some gundam-looking robot. Then it fell apart.

    Oh. It's Optimus?
    I was thinking Motor Master because of the darker color...
    But Optimus makes sense too, I guess...

    Idk.. The grey stripes on the sides of the cab and the grill/bumper/headlights, to me anyway, definitely scream optimus but.. Yeah, other things like the trailer kinda say it isnt..

    IMO, I say it IS!

    It could be a little homage to Prime. It could just be a truck too.

    I am more surprised that Pokemon is still on TV.

    Well,what do ya expect from a Anime that's based on a popular video game series?,heck a Video game Made/Published by Nintendo (And there isn't even a Starfox or Earthbound/Mother TV Show) still id' be surprised if someone is surprised that Ash is still the main dude along with the Yellow Plot-Device Kid-Appeal Mascot.

    But yeah,i guess it makes some sense,Takara did made some pokemon toys,well Tomy to be more precise,but yeah Optimus Prime Nod.

    I didn't hear it at first, but after comparing it to the transforming sound on my phone, I can vaguely hear the resemblence now. :lol 

    Well maybe that's because he's still depicted as a 10 year old kid all these years? :lol  I think one of the subtitles for the new BW anime said he's 10...still.
