I think that someone mentioned a little while back that while there were
originally 9 MP Evas, there were only eight in the Sephiroth  formation when
TI was initiated, (I haven't confirmed this yet), so it does appear that the
first (or at least one) of the MP's did not regenerate.

Hey, wait a minute.  I just remembered a post that I myself made a while ago
in a thread about who threw the mystery lance that pierced Unit-02 through the 
eye.  I counted very carefully and found that there were 9 lances total, 
including the one that pierced Asuka'a eye and the one that split her arm. 
Unless one of the MP's picked up the dead one's lance that means each MP was
functioing and threw a lance.

Ack! I'm confused. <cop-out> I think this just might be a plot hole. Gainax
made a mistake</cop-out>

Good luck. I have ambitions of doing that someday.

Exactly! I've seen it twice and now that I have my box set I'm gearing up 
for a third.  I'm not quite prepeared yet though.  You can't just throw it
in and watch it.  You need to be in the right frame of mind, or you won't be 
able to handle it.  Like it or not, that says a lot about this movie.
