Nobody really replied to this when I first posted it, so I’m going to take a chance and post it again

You know, I’ve really got to say that all of these initial possibilities for this new Pokémon anime that are going around here have all really gotten me a little bit confused about how to feel about it, honestly.

I mean if it turns out that this really is a full-blown out reboot of the series, then, on the one hand; it does, at least, offer the chance to give Ash a story where he can have a beginning with a bit more respect to his character. But, on the other hand; not only does this make the last few years of the original Pokémon anime a little bit pointless to a certain degree, but, it also seems to me that ending the original show on a series like Sun and Moon feels a little bit off. I mean, while it is true that they did actually have Ash officially win a League conference for once, it still feels like Ash could have had a better series to have that kind of achievement, you know? Ending on Sun and Moon; it just feels kind of underwhelming to me, honestly.

And, if it turns out that Ash does end up going back to all of the other regions for whatever reason, then, on the one hand; that does offer the chance to see a lot of the old characters and locations again. But, on the other hand; not only does this put my initial fan hopes that Ash has become something of a legendary figure within the other regions that he has already visited into jeopardy, it, um, it-it also has me a little bit worried about how all of those particular possible returns and reunions will actually play out within the series, especially when I consider just how well that both Dawn’s initial Unova region return and both Misty and Brock’s first Alola return went, which, um, didn’t exactly work for me completely when I first initially watched all of those particular episodes.

Does, um, d-does anyone here have anything to say about all of this?

It’s also confirmed that next Sunday they will show Pokemon sword and shield information not just the anime

Anyone else worried about the music for the series? From what I heard, it seems like team rocket has a new theme (drastically different from their past ones) does this imply that we will be losing all of Miyazaki's catalogue during this transition. If so, this series will be a big big downgrade. There is no way you can spin it otherwise

Whilst I don't mind Team Rocket returning, I hope they stick to being absent for episodes at a time

BTW, I heard from somewhere that the first Opening of the anime was leaked, is it true and if so where I can listen to it.

This is interesting...

Arbok and Weezing returning? Woobat's still alive? Mimikyu gets to stay for the next series?

If we had Yanmega, Yamask, Amoonguss, & Frillish on here too, I maybe would have fainted.
