This is so confusing. So... it is technically a reboot from what I read.
No it's not. In the latest episode, Ash seems confused about his next step but thanks to Olivia, he decides to travel the world which is pretty much the synopsis of the new series.

For such a big SM fanboy, you don't seem to pay much attention to it and only use it as an excuse to bash previous series.

Part of me hopes that somewhere along the line, someone will catch a Koffing and Farfetch'd so that when they reach Galar, they will evolve into Galarian Weezing and Sirfetch'd to help promote the Pokemon

To be fair I don't think the subs are even out so most have yet too watch unless the know Japanese

Firstly, welcome to the group

Secondly, you have a point there. I don't understand Japanese so am only guessing what they're saying so I assume Olivia suggested Ash travel the world

It would've been better if they didn't make Gen 8 tbh, and instead just have the 7 Regions. Have Gou with an Eevee and the girl with a Growlithe and just call it a day. Just promote remakes and not have a new one until they've come to the right time.

I just feel like Galar is being left out here. And I've been concern since Masters since they've been hyping that more than SwSh where they hardly got anything? My hopes for a British based Region, and what they just did was stuck a knife through it's back and aborted it before it even had a chance to shine.

I understand why they're doing this. What's Ash to do now that he's Champion of Alola, even though he said being Champion was one step from him becoming Pokemon Master. I wanted to get back to Pokemon, ever since DP. But now I'm beginning to see why I've jumped ship during DP, and the reason was because of the money, and how much they care about that more than what they love to create.

Sorry for having a love-hate relationship, I am trying to love it, but all these radical changes is something I cannot cope and grasp here.

Thanks but yeah I checked Bulbapedia and that is what she said. I tend to watch with a friend who knows Japanaese and she pretty much translates as we watch I keep hearing rumors that Crunchyroll is fighting to get the series for official subs but not sure if that is fake or if they are just running into trouble.

This reeks of personal bias and negativity.

Galar does not need a lot of episodes. If they only do 52 episodes for Galar that is enough. Only regions get the amount of episodes they do is to stretch it out 3 to 4 years but all the regions could be done in 52 episodes. The pacing might seem fast but the anime pacing as always been really weird to begin with

But the other 7 Regions have already have their chance to shine, and children today can easily find them online. Yet Galar never has a chance.

I get it, I get why they're doing it. It's for the children today to catch up on the old series that they weren't around to see.

They can do a kanto 5 episodes only, just to set the base and then go to galar and do everything as it was before until the league and everything, being Galar the first region of the new anime.

It’s literally the most recent thing and needs to be promoted though. The anime is a commercial for the franchise and Galar's the one that’s in the limelight currently.
That was what it used to be clearly they want to move away from that and explore more of the lore and other things. Not sure why the adults fans are being so hard headed but the fans under 17 and totally chill with the direction the series is going

The thing is is that the anime is clearing advertising the franchise as a whole, not just the new game. I still feel like it's a bit extreme to do this change?

For your information, I'm literally 17. And hardly a few people are being hard headed, but I'd say it’s a vocal (but an outspoken) minority on here.

Secondly, the entire reason the anime exists is to market the series, they’re branching out, but they’re still marketing. They may take a more unique approach, but that doesn’t mean Galar would have a largely reduced role compared to an irrelevant region: if you notice Gou has a Galar starter and the professor's daughter has a Yamper- both from Galar.

They need to sell Galar merch. It’s a really safe bet to say that Galar will get more focus than something not at all relevant like Hoenn currently. Kanto might get sizeable focus, but I still think it'll be second to Galar.

The new setup allows them to change focuses quite easily, maybe hypothetically increasing Sinnoh focus when the remakes come along.

Going to stop talking to you since you clearly are missing my point and I'm not wasting more time on you-_-
