I'm glad that the reboot theory is now dead. It wouldn't have made sense.
I really love some of the obscure easter eggs and continuity nods shown here. Like, yeah, we obviously have besides the badges from the previous regions, the Battle Frontier symbols and his recent Alola League trophies. But they also showed the Indigo League badge (which, funny enough, this is the first time it has appeared since Ash received it all the way back in 1999) and his Orange League trophy (which I really love it whenever they acknowledge the Orange Islands arc; hopefully we actually see the region again).The new series is canon to OS-SM.
Ash left his Alola League trophy and Z-Ring in his room in Pallet Town.
It'd be nice if they actually have that, though I hope they finally do another proper lab episode at some point with Go joining Ash on a visit to Pallet Town. Could even have a part with GO being jealous over the amount of Pokemon he has!This is from a page in the Manga based off of the New Anime Series. When Ash is in Prof Oak's Car similar to the Trailer in the Anime thinking about Pokemon he has had before. Don't keep your expectations too high for this to be shown in the Anime since the Manga tends to do things different like SM Ash being the same as the Ash from M20 & M21 unlike the Anime.
Honestly, the logo argument was weak from the start. The new logo was more of a new era symbolism (used since the 20th anniversary of the franchise) than anything AU related. Then again, the ones who wanted it to be a reboot try to spin it in weird ways, with one guy saying it would be a reboot in a 3rd continuity because "Ash was wearing his green pyjamas".That and because the new series shares the same logo with the AU movies.
Wow that's pretty spot on with what we've been shown. Minus a few scenes like Sakuragi being alerted to Lugia's arrival at his speech. I wonder if it will diverge after the first chapter though because episode three is a plot about Ivysaur and doesn't really match the "Pokemon Training" title. Well whatever the case I definitely want to keep an eye on this manga now, maybe it's going to be more continuity driven then the more episodic anime.The First Chapter of the Manga based on the New Anime has released. I've read it, it seems to be exactly 100% based on the Anime starting from the Episode 2. Here is a Full Rundown of the Content of the First Chapter.
The Story opens up with Ash and Pikachu going to Vermilion City on a Car with Professor Oak. Ash seems to be energetic as usual looking at all the Pokemon outside. He then reminds himself that he has battled and caught a lot of Pokemon ( Flashback shows him with his Charizard, Greninja, Lycanroc and Rowlet ). Professor Oak reveals that Sakuragi is his Junior and they're going to Vermilion City to attend the opening of his Lab. Once they arrive, Sakuragi gives a speech and reveals he wants to analyze every Region and Pokemon. There we see Yamper running around so Ash picks him up hugs him eventually leading Yamper to Shock him and make his SM memeface. Ash is so excited about Yamper since he hasn't seen it before eventually leading Koharu to be scared and run away from him. We then switch to a scene with Gou, who seems to have analyzed and predict that Lugia will appear. Lugia appears and several trainers battle it including one with a Corviknight and Garchomp. Ash battles next, starts off with Electroweb and gets rekt. Lugia then flies away but Ash jumps on it and so does Gou making both of them surprised. Ash is chilling out while Gou is analyzing everything. Gou then "accepts" Ash as his friend. Lugia then drops them on a bunch of vileplume + some more comedy and they promise to see Lugia again one day. Sakruagi then asks them to become his research assistants. Chapter Ends, Next Chapter is called "Pokemon Training"... /
