I guarantee you Koharu will be one of those characters that will just be there to be "cute"... We won't even see her that much considering that Ash and Gou will be travelling all the regions.

I don't know if the artstyle will be steadily like this in the animé, but if it is the case I can say some quality is being heaten to be served on the table. At first random glance, I wasn't sure if it was a drawing or a picture.

I just noticed that Koharu even has a cherry blossom in her hair.
From Japanese 小 (ko) meaning "small" combined with 春 (haru) meaning "spring".
Just to clarify, whilst 小 & 春 do mean "small" and "Spring" individually, when they come together to form the compound Kanji of Koharu/小春 it instead becomes "Late Autumn".

Also Sakuragi (桜木) is Cherry Blossom Trees, not just the flowers themselves. (I know this wasn't you that said it but I wanted to bring that up.)

By the looks of it, none of Ash's companions this series will be based on any game character which will be a first

Bonnie was great in XY as she was a fun and cute addition, her friendship with Serena and asking any women if they'd marry Clemont

Sun and Moon had way too many who didn't get much focus so in my mind, 3 will be just enough

I knew that would be the case since it will be an AU Ash series (not AU Movie Ash, but a completely new AU Ash for the Anime)

Part of me really hopes Team Rocket will have a minor role this series, if any at all

So Ash comes back to Kanto, talks to a new professor, meet 2 new friends with galar pokemon there and moved by the curiosity about this new pokemon and friends all of them go to galar. Could it be the start?

R.I.P. Old Pokemon

Pokemon Original Anime Series - 1998-2019
Pokemon Manga Series - 1998-2019
Pokemon Movies based on Anime- 1998-2016 (2019?)

It looks as if TPCi is wanting a fresh restart for the series to suite people today. Dunno if this is something to do with the Japanese Eras [Heisei (1989-2019) to Reiwa (2019-)] but bit it seems so likely. Out with the aging old, and in with the new slate.

Can you get out of here with that here whiny attitude? It's near sickening and besides, I don't see any stable and official evidence of anything AU or reboot related.

Definitely looks like XY + DP now.

I like the art style, but I'm not too happy about this new professor and Ash and Gou's "base" being in Vermillion City. I wish their primary stay was in Galar with Magnolia and Sonia. I know they're not making Galar a main focus in particular, but I really wish they were since it is the new region and all. Koharu even has a Yamper for pete's sake, why couldn't they just be in Galar? Also the idea of Ash and Gou having a 'base" immediately has me concerned. It just seems like SM all over again. I would have preferred if the duo were just constantly traveling, but I'll wait for more details before I give my thoughts on that.

Koharu looks nice, but I just wonder if she'll travel with Ash and Gou. I'll be honest, it seems weird for them to make this anime exclusive professor and give him a daughter if she weren't going to act as a female companion.

If there's a base, it makes sense that it's a kanto one. They're saying that the anime is not galar only. The kanto base can be used for gen 8, 9, 10 or whatever needed. A galarian one wouldn't have the same effect.

I don't think that the group will spend a lot of time in Galar.

"The Alola Pokémon League is over, and Satoshi and his friends have gone back to their normal lives as well. At the Pokémon School, Professor Kukui asks everyone what their plans for the upcoming vacation is. And after Satoshi hears what everyone's plans and future dreams are, he makes a certain decision."

Even here, they are hinting at a continuation from SM. Whenever Ash makes a "decision" at the end of a series, it's always to tie into the next one. Historically his decision has been hearing about a new region and wanted to travel there, but this time it will probably be a little different to foreshadow the premise of the new series. Perhaps his decision this time is to travel back to Kanto to take on the Indigo League one more time.

I suppose, but I mean at the same time, they could also just relocate it if need be. I guess I just wish there was a tiny bit more focus on the newer region.
