So that Greninja from the poster is most definitely Ash's then, hopefully it finished that mission and can come home
The forums' software will be updated on December 9th, 2019 and may be down for several hours to multiple days for this process. Thank you for your patience, we hope this update will improve your experience here.
Why not join us over on discord during the downtime?
Lol I personally thought the logo was the least weak argument of them all, to be honest. Everything else was just too convoluted.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.
This just gives me more hope of seeing them in the future. I wonder if this part will be shown in the anime because I heard that the Alola League is referred during the jeep trip.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 ).
That's... interesting and... new I guess? The first meetings with past companions/friends/recurring characters involved anger, curiosity, shyness, annoyance .etc. but outright scaring one? This should be hilarious.Ash is so excited about Yamper since he hasn't seen it before eventually leading Koharu to be scared and run away from him.
Strange. I wonder if the manga is in the same continuity and shows us 'in-between' moments, as well as key stuff from the anime or if it diverges like Electric Tale.Chapter Ends, Next Chapter is called "Pokemon Training"...
Yep! This clearly shows that the next anime series is a continuation of SM and all Ash's past tropies still present! Especially Kalos, Unova and Sinnoh! Also his Z-Ring and Z-Crystal with Kukui's CupI 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).
Other than that, nice to finally have some concret, official and undeniable proof that this is indeed a continuation from Sun & Moon and not a reboot focusing on AU Ash No. 2. I mean, it's not like most of us didn't realize that already, but confirmation is always nice.
(now how much do you wanna bet that there's still gonna be people trying to spin this around and keep on claiming that this is a reboot because of the title)
Various sources, I cba to locate them again. But that's irrelevant now, I guess we'll find out tomorrow or next week.Where did you hear that?
The logo for one which is a pretty weak argument for continuity reboots since companies often redo their logos for anniversaries or new eras. Considering Pokemon just left the handheld (sorta) to the main console, it seems appropriate to change logo.Why did people think it will be a reboot? Because of the name?
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"... /
