The names and description of the new game from the first 90 minute gameplay from critics sounds to me like the new game wants to make a fresh start to Pokemon, having SM mark the end to what was Pokemon, and make way for what is to come for the 2020s. I still wanted it to be a traditional old Pokemon game, but of course, we now live in an age where tablets and mobile gaming is king, and we would have to adapt to the change.

sigh being autistic is really hard work when it comes to change, I hate it so every single time. But alas, true men never complain, we have to get used to what we have.

If the games are being revamped from the traditional formula, then no surprise that the anime would also have the same treatment.

Now we know the full names of the locations on the poster for the new Pokemon Anime Series

Kanto: Sakuragi Institute (English Name not known)
Johto: Tin Tower
Hoenn: Mt. Chimney
Sinnoh: Mt. Coronet
Unova: Driftveil Drawbridge
Kalos: Lumiose City
Alola: Exeggutor Island
Galar: Motostoke

Again. It's that secret island that Ash and Pikachu came to, and in a later episode, came back with his friends, including Misty and Brock.
Like BigDocFan said, that was Treasure Island. It was called that both in dialogue and in closed captioning (if I'm not mistaken). It was also visibly seen to be practically next to Melemele Island, whereas Exeggutor Island is supposed to be next to Poni Island.

In that case...

Johto: Tin Tower

Kalos: Lumiose City
Alola: Treasure Island
Galar: Motostoke

Slightly disappointed if it is indeed Treasure Island as I was hoping we'd see Exeggutor Island

So order of Gyms...

Fire, Grass (Milo), Water (Nessa), Dragon, Fighting (Bea)/Ghost (Allister), Fairy, Ice/Dark, ???

So Milo is the second Gym Leader, and if that's the case, then...

MiloxGardenia ship confirmed?

Ice/Dark and Dragon Gyms are not confirmed. Fire and Fairy are also not confirmed, but they're highly likely.

Haven't seen much of the newly revealed information about Galar, just wish Galar was getting more focus

By sounds of things, it'll be more of a major change from the usual 6 Gen games before Gen 7.

The games are changing direction.
The anime is changing direction.
The manga is changing direction
TPCi and GF are changing directions for the new era of Reiwa and for the new decade.

Hopefully it won't change in a way it puts fan of playing the games or watching the anime or reading the manga

The only notable difference aside from graphics is the Wild Area, really.

  • Introduction to the world of Pokemon done by Chairman Rose
  • Starters given by Champion Leon
  • Names of towns and area differ from usual, such as not having ''City'', ''Town'', ''Forest'', ''Docks'' at the ends
  • Pokemon to be focused more closely based to British Lore
  • League is more of the main focus than the Legendaries/no Legendarys in title screen
I'm sure there will be more revealed when the games come out in the next couple of weeks.

Those are superficial differences. The starters haven't been given by the professor since B2W2, and the cultural references were also apparent in the 3DS games. As for the legendaries, it's too early to tell, but rumors suggest that they will play a bigger role than in the first two generations and XY.

You can't compare any of this to the approach the anime seems to be taking. It makes sense, because the games have been consistently doing well, while the anime isn't big outside Japan and leaves something to be desired ratings-wise even there.

To be fair, Kukui is more of a teacher/father figure than a Professor
It doesn't even matter because Hala is the one that hands out the starters in SM, although USUM change this just because.
