The official Japanese Pokémon account just shared a snippet of the new opening sequence for next week, sung by Rica Matsumoto herself.


And with that, we have yet another pattern suggesting that Gen 9 is indeed coming this year - Rica has sung the last anime openings for both XY and SM. And with only one last Galar city left to see, Wyndon, I think we're now entering endgame for PM 2019.
No Grookey on Goh's shoulder. I guess that little bugger is going to evolve soon, possibly in the Thwackey episode.

It's confirmed to be Flint battling Leon on Twitter, and apparently Leon defeats Flint easily.
This is revenge for Sinnoh getting more love than Galar ever has in this series!

There is zero indication Gen 9 is coming this year. Gamefreak is likely working on Arceus DLC for the Fall and I don't think they can rush out another 3D game this fast.

The preview doesn't show the Flint battle at all, I guess it happens very briefly at the start of the episode in less than a minute before Ash shows up. I wonder why the scan even bothered to show it since Flint is getting no promotion.

Kinda depressing that Ash is surprised that people train by spending time with their pokemon

Wonder how his Oak'd pokemon feel about that
The difference is that Leon doesn't seem to be training at all here, just spending time with Pokémon.
Which is especially weird considering that he trained by spending time with his original 3 starters and won his next battle against Brandon.
Ash only called those Pokémon to spend time and bond with them. It wasn't training.

Perhaps they think Ash was just a myth conjured up by the old 'mons to explain WHY they're on a ranch instead of running free and wild

:p

Ironically enough this used to be Ash's actual mantra before JN. He doesn’t need to be taught that at all. If he does, it’s a clear case of regression, which JN has anyways in terms of Ash spending time with his Pokémon.
He did train his Pokémon too instead of just hanging out with them.

Ash didn’t really train 24/7. He was hanging out with his Pokémon much more than he trained. Just look at Alola.

Also; even Leon both trains his Pokémon and hangs out with them as shown here so I don’t know what the point is.

Journeys suffers from someone cutting fat. Not just fat people dislike like travel time but the healthy fat like training and bonding. I feel we give the series too little credit for what it dies do but it is still a change
