I've just finished watching Showdown: Part 1 and it was revealed in that episode that Feedback was destroyed by Malware and Ben can no longer turn into Feedback, but I've seen 16-year-old Ben turn into Feedback in Store 23.

Did the events of Store 23 take place after Showdown: Part 1?

Could anyone explain me what's going on?

Note: I haven't watched Showdown: Part 2 yet.

According to the Ben 10 Wiki, 16-year-old Ben regains access to Feedback during the events of Showdown: Part 2:

Suddenly, Ben, in the form of Feedback, emerges from Malware's head. Malware is shocked, but says that he will destroy Feedback again.

It's unclear to both me and the Wiki how 16-year-old Ben was able to do this:

[Feedback] is one of the four regular aliens to be temporarily destroyed and removed from the original Omnitrix/Ultimatrix [...] While Ben has been able to regain the other aliens, it remains unclear as to how he was able to regain Feedback.

~Ben 10 Wiki's page on Feedback (emphasis mine)

What is clear is that, following the events of the Showdown two-parter, 11-year-old Ben can no longer use Feedback, but 16-year-old Ben can. While Store 23 aired before the Showdown two-parter in the US, its events actually takes place afterwards, explaining how 16-year-old Ben is about to use Feedback.

I realise this may not be the most satisfying answer, but it honestly appears that there is no canon explanation for how Ben was able to regain use of Feedback.

  • 😛You spoiled Showdown: Part 2 for me, by the way. – Wade Wayne Apr 11 at 12:58
  • Sorry, I probably should have asked if you'd watched Showdown: Part 2 first, before posting this. But yes, Store 23 chronologically takes place after the Showdown two-parter, though for some reason it was aired in the US first. – F1Krazy Apr 11 at 13:28
  • Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I get it now. – Wade Wayne Apr 11 at 14:19
  • "Yes, Store 23 chronologically takes place after the Showdown two-parter" --- I needed to hear this. :) – Wade Wayne Apr 11 at 14:21

I think Store 23 is after this event; one instance is Ben's motorcycle, which isn't even made until later in season 3
