    Pokémon Sword and Shield anime speculation thread

    Obviously, I am going to wait to see how well this new series is executed, maybe it turns out to be pretty well written after all and doesn't actually feel very much like a reboot of the series...but I can't say I am hopeful. I think that no matter how good this new nostalgia series ends up...

    So Champion Cynthia was actually right when they said we wouldn't (technically) be getting a Pokémon Sword & Shield anime at all. :annoyedVoltorb:

    Yeah, I am definitely much more of a nerd than a jock, so the whole football/soccer stuff with the Galar League, I'm not really digging either. By the way, I'm currently in the middle of (slowly, as we learn more info about SwSh) writing a fanfiction on this board in which my Joseph Pokémon...

    This is a major reason why I am not a big fan of the Unova region despite being American myself (although I know I'm in the minority on this board). While I liked what they did with the story involving N & Team Plasma, Gen V in general felt like a reboot of the franchise aimed at teenagers. I...

    Regardless of whether the reveal comes on Sunday or the 29th, all I'm going to say is... If the Sword & Shield anime series ends up being Best Wishes 2.0 with Gloria as an expy of Iris, I'll...I'll...well, I'll do something.

    Jumping in with my thoughts: I highly doubt Serena returning as the female protagonist will happen, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see either her or Dawn return for a few episodes in a similar fashion to Misty & Brock in the SM series (as a way of promoting either any loose connection the...

    Pokémon Sword and Shield anime speculation thread

    The main reason why I say that it probably won’t be Gloria is because so far the anime has only included the female player characters that have been Rivals to male players. RSE - May is your Rival if you play as Brendan DPPt - Dawn is the assistant to Professor Rowan if you play as Lucas XY -...

    I still stand by my prediction that Gloria won't be the female companion unless GameFreak is keeping secret from us that she'll be the fourth Rival for male players in the games. But if she is, does anyone have any predictions as to what her personality might be like? For obvious reasons they...

    I'm actually thinking it'll be more like a mix of BW & Colosseum/XD.

    My bad. I thought it would be okay because that part of the leak still hasn’t been confirmed, so my post was intended to be mostly speculation. And given that Shakespeare is one of the things England is most known for I think it’d be a huge missed opportunity if they didn’t include PokePlays in...

    I highly doubt it. I think she'll definitely be one of the Rivals though, because, you know...Team Yell... Do you think it's possible that the city in the northwest of Galar with the mushrooms could be based on Stratford-upon-Avon? (I'm not too familiar with the layout of England myself)...

    One more thing I've been wondering, regardless of who the protagonists end up being or whether or not we see a return to the form of the XY series: What happens to the voice actors in the English dub? Will they go ahead and bring in some British actors & actresses so they can give the various...

    Here's some food for thought. In no way is this based on any official rumors so take it with a grain of salt. One of my new co-workers at my latest job is a big anime fan, and is familiar with a lot of the genre. He tells me that contrary to popular belief, the majority of anime in general is...

    Pokémon Sword and Shield anime speculation thread

    I think it is certainly a possibility we could see Bea as Ash's female companion. We haven't seen a Fighting-type specialist be one of Ash's companions yet, and she could be a nice foil to Ash in terms of personality & approach to battling (calm & collected instead of fiery & passionate), and...

    I am going to make a bold prediction here. I am thinking that there is no chance of this actually happening, HOWEVER, if I end up being right, it would be the coolest thing ever. I am going to predict that Serena, Clemont & Bonnie WILL return for a few episodes in the Sword & Shield anime...

    With Gyms being confirmed to reappear, I think we'll likely see a return to form of previous series where Ash will be travelling with two companions, one of which is the female Player Character. If that happens, then my guesses for the starter distribution would be: Ash will get Scorbunny...
