I do not see any big differences. For me, the art style ist much closer to the one of Sun and Moon. I do not see how people see anything XY related to those artworks. It is clearly an updated version of the S&M art style. I think in the minds of people, who hate the Sun and Moon anime to this date, just hope in their own minds, that this upcoming will be like XY.

I personally hope it will not be that case and from what I see they want to continue with the more heart-lighted direction. I think I can not stand another anime with shipping wars.

Ooo, Cacnea as well.

Wonder if we'll see James collect Cacnea from Gardenia whilst in Sinnoh unless it happens off screen
Unless in Japan they give Gardenia a new VA since her original died of Colon Cancer 6 years ago, and her English one just wondered off somewhere after playing as her.

It might be difficult of getting Cacnea back from her since she loves it to bits. But then... she loves every Grass Type to bits. Her first debut was a subtle fetish fest with her letting Cacnea Pin Missile her back reasons explained in Fanzine i'm working on , and having her head chomped by Carnivine and loving it. Why not trade it back with Milo, lol.

Though... It would be interesting for the TRio to have some Galar Pokemon in their team as well.

I don't get why Ash gets an update and Trio not.

It is really strange. But the Pokémon themselves also never really got an updated art style. At least not that much. They still blend in well with the new designs of the humans, but you can tell that humans, Pokémon and sometimes even the backgrounds are drawn in different art styles.

Maybe that is the plan, to use each art style again?

If you look in the trailer, you see them having two new Pokemon (sketch form) that are yet to be revealed in SwSh. Both are robot Pokemon, one a rocket based Gachapon Machine and another a Martian Tripod Fighting Machine from War of the Worlds. It's hard to make out, but they do have sounds of their own, what do you think? Because when translating the sub, it describes it as some sort of accompanying Robot machine that makes machines for them to catch Pikachu and other Pokemon. Powered by Rotom or something.

They look good. I wish James's hair was a bit sharper but oh well.

That's a mecha, not new pokemon.

The art style looks good so far, just wish we had some proper animation to see it in action

Since Ash hasbecome Champion of Alola, I am concerned that he won't be competing in the Galar League and instead create a sort of slice of life series for the new series instead, no League whatsoever. (except for the last couple of episodes)

So a more refined and polished version of how they look like in Sun & Moon?

I say they're lookin good.
Yeah; They look MUCH Better here; as does Ash and the pokemon!!
Ok honestly I really like this new artsyle It's like it looks like XY and SM at the same time, much better than SM art style.
I Agree; it's much closer to XY than SM!!! Which is a MAJOR Upgrade!!

Mimikyu gets to stay for the next series?
NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Jessie's Mimikyu ruined & Removed everything I Loved about Mimikyu;

This Video encompasses everything & Every Reason Why I fell in love with Mimikyu, and Why I Hate Jessie's Mimikyu: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO_dO3mMboQ

No!!!! That's basically Sun & Moon all over again; I was hoping the series would distance itself from Sun & Moon's Formula; and return back to its roots, with Ash getting a Sponsorship due to his Alola League Victory; and invited to Compete in the Galar League and its qualifying gym battles which are televised within the Region

I honestly can't see a difference in the new TR designs. Without context I would just assume this is SM art. I guess if nothing else this proves that the new art style is an intentional progression from the SM art style, which bodes well for this being a continuation (I know I'm sounding like a broken record). I just hope in addition to their SM designs, TR also keep their personality from that series. Early-Mid SM had Team Rocket at their best, so I'm hoping they won't go back to basics. Although the fact that they're chasing Ash through each region already sounds kind of like a return to form, but I'll remain optimistic.

Well to them they think SM was an improved new formula to the past one that they want to stay in that new comfort zone. I even had a dream where they do not want another evil team like Team Galactic or something, even though Galar has a lot of potentials for it.

It's obviously from a past discussion that they hate staying in the same formula and instead want to surprise people with something new.

Can someone please explain to me how it even has XY Elements to it. I generally don't even see it. Its like people don't want to admit stuff.

The better shading, slightly thicker/sharper edges and the coloring. It's not as apparent with TRio, but go look at the Sakuragi Lab and Vermillion City frames (or even Ash, if you want). The XY-esque detailed artstyle is blatant there, along with the 'cooler' color tone and map of DP.
