    So I guess Lillie gave Ash her doll off-screen?

    People needing to look stuff up on considered bad storytelling. Not that I disagree with you, but a story should ideally be accessible without needing to look stuff up online.

    They said nothing about SM, they said it's going to be more episodic than ANY of the previous series.

    I can see the timeslot thing being legitimate though; it makes sense if the timeslot change was done in preparation for this series.

    The school was irrelevant though. Ash didn't rotate Pokemon in Sinnoh. Gible was caught after Gliscor left, and old Pokemon were only used in the Sinnoh League for the purpose of promoting HGSS (which is why most of them were from Gen 2).

    PREVIEW: Pocket Monsters the series (2019)

    Pokemon anime series usually have around 140 episodes, give or take. Unlike past regions, Galar will be sharing screentime with seven other regions. There's not gonna be any time to flesh out Galar or give it proper focus. And the people who are only interested in Galar will have no idea when...

    Ash doesn't need to do the badge quest and there's not gonna be time for him to do it anyway without it feeling rushed. It'd basically be back to back gym battles with no journey to back them up or give them context. A regional champion doesn't need to challenge gyms anymore.

    Plus "extended vacation" from school implies that this series takes place during their summer vacation.

    Visiting all the regions isn't gonna give the Galar Gyms and League much breathing room. Whatever they do with Galar will feel extremely rushed and half-baked because it had to share screentime with seven other regions. It'll just remind us of the fact that we were robbed of a proper Galar journey.

    All the Kanto pandering has made me give up on this generation entirely. It's going to be 90% Kanto at the expense of everything else.

    I'm not saying that. I'm just saying it might not as big as a focus as you think.

    I'm still not sold on the "visiting all regions" thing. We were also told that SM would be about Ash going to school and "graduating like never before", and that isn't what it ended up being at all.
