We have so many game places from the Alola region that we have not seen yet due to the nature of the SM anime, and the writers decide to instead make an anime-original deserted island when we finally return to Alola? Sigh...

Also, you know a region in the anime which is full of uninhabited islands and we haven't seen in over 2 decades? The Orange Archipelago! That way, the writers can even avoid the giant Donphan in the room that is the Alola gang! But no, the writers have to avoid the Orange Archipelago like the plague...

I'm actually surprised they're making an anime exclusive location since its seemed as if they avoided that in SM without creating any anime exclusive towns and keeping it as close to the games as possible, unlike in the past.

Well...it IS a race, so that means there will be other characters.

I'd even take Sophocles vs. Horatio round 4.

...though watch it be a bunch of functionary, personality-free OCs -_-

Uninhabited Island… Wish I could curb my cynicism but this sounds like a prime excuse to avoid the Alola family… :censored:
We already saw them

I don’t like that we’re going back to Alola because it reminds me of... that (the SM anime)

Please, Mantyke evolution for Goh and not him getting a random Mantine. I can also see Lana being involved here. Maybe the event is hosted by Samson Oak.

It seems there will be a one-week break after the Sinnoh episodes. Probably caused by the Olympics.

Alola great as it means a non Kanto episode

Uninhabited Island Race, hoping that means more Pokemon than human race

Happy for finally some Alola love, a bit disappointed it's not a proper location. Like would they ever visit cool places like KoniKoni City that weren't shown in the SM series?

(Maybe this is Exeggutor Island.)

On the plus side, this will the sixth episode in a row where the action takes place outside of Kanto. And we need as much time out of Vermillion City as we can get.
I said: "I hope that Dawn and Piplup is no longer in episode 76, it will change other new posters with Ash's oldest friends in August".

You answer to me.

I'm sure we could have one of them appear but like someone else said it's probably just gonna be a bunch of one off characters to fill in the ranks.

Many Alola locations were done dirty in SM, and Journeys' best idea is to give us either a new location or the overrated (by the writers) Treasure Island?

But yeah, taking into account that this comes out after a high budget two-parter at least sounds fun, engaging and it's not about Kanto.

If they made a new island for Alola, that kind of changes the entire dynamic of the region, as that would imply there would need to be a fifth deity to guard the island? Can anyone tell me if that’s how it works? I can’t imagine changing the lore that much.
