I've seen a poster with them travelling with lugia on Reddit, wasn't that the leak everyone laughed about because Ash had a crush on a girl? Where can I see that full leak?

As a thought, another broken/delayed promise. It makes this all the more an AU, which I hope not.

This whole AU can get a bit out of hand if they introduce too many of them. The new movies already had an alternative timeline, the anime really doesn't need one too. It would be just too confusing. Also, this could actually mess up the continuity of Ash's story. Look what happened to Sonic the Hedgehog after Sega introduced many different timelines for the series.

I was right, that is Meowth that Dragonite is holding. I'm more convinced now looking at Meowth's expression that it is Team Rockets and the Dragonite has something to do with them. I do wonder, if Team Rocket are returning, why they haven't been shown yet either.

To be fair, they've been very tight lipped about the entire series in general, their "announcement" was literally a showing of a poster, which had already been leaked prior. Quite unusual if you ask me.

Something about Ash smiling while hanging off Lugia's tail feels awkward.

Also wondering what, if any, significance there is to Dragonite cuddling Meowth up there.
Do we have a new ship for the next series?

Or maybe that Dragonite is just Team Rocket's new den mother/Bewear 2.0? Seems like more reasonable explanation to me.

Or it looks more like a complete reboot where Ash starts his journey through Kanto and meets Gou there, which is exactly what I feared would happen.

Yeah, that's my current non-joke assumption. Dragonite can fly so it would be good for chasing them as they go between different regions.

I'm hoping Team Rocket will continue their trend of not appearing in every single episode because to be frank, they contribute very little but pointless scenes and prevent their VA's from being credited in other roles

"And don't miss the latest news on the new anime 'Pocket Monsters'!"

Seriously, I had to go back to the full description of this week's episode to make sure that line was actually in there and not something that got conjured up out of nowhere, because what we got today does not count as the "latest news." Is zooming in on artwork we've already had for over a week supposed to excite us? I understand the hype being a little underwhelming last week because the poster leaked, but this week? Not so much.

We're getting to a month out before this series debuts and we haven't seen a single second of footage. We don't even know the premise of the series. How are they incorporating the "dual protagonist" thing? Is Ash still challenging gyms? Where is Team Rocket? What about any other characters? How exactly are the different regions coming into play? I feel like every single week we just end up with more questions and basically no answers.

I'm starting to wonder if either they're hiding something exciting and are trying to hype it up (in which case they aren't doing a very good job, to be honest) or they're worried about the reception once they actually reveal more details. I'm trying to remain excited about this series, but at this point it's starting to get pretty frustrating; it's hard when they're really not saying anything and it just leads to the same baseless speculation week after week.

Honestly I'm not into the concept of them revisiting older regions at all, if not just a couple of them for a couple of episodes. These kind of things should be done in spin-offs.

Also I have trouble warming my heart to Gou for several reasons like 1) fear he takes Satoshi's place 2) the second protagonist should not have been another boy 3) he looks like a Gladio rip-off 4)and we know nothing about of him.
Like, maybe he's going to be a great character, but they are not trying to make me like him at all.

This seems to look like it's going to become another AU series entirely just so to refresh the already stale series and to show the newer kids the world of Pokemon. No doubt it'll be in chronological order and be caring less for Gen 8 at all.

I am getting sick and tired of their decisions and empty broken promises.
