Yeah, I was just about to point this out. Pikachu sleeping with Ash didn't happen in the movie, either, so this seems like a third continuity to me. I don't know why they're using the movie logo, but whatever.

It's clearly a remake of this classic scene from before Ash picked a starter. Why would they just randomly focus on Bulbasaur's poster if it were from a different time?
Previously you were arguing that it's a reboot in the ICY and TPoU continuity because of the logo. Now you're arguing it's a reboot in a third continuity because of the green pajama scenes?

Give it a rest.

If anything, it seems more of a throwback to the very first episode... most likely right after Ash returns from Alola to prepare for his new journey. Nothing states that he wouldn't be wearing the same outfit and that if he does then it's somehow a total reboot.

And what are you even implying with that Bulbasaur line? He meant "different times" as in different scenes/situations. For example, the one with him receiving the Pokeball being a flashback to EP001 whereas the one where he throws the ball being in present time...

Animation looked good.

Scorbunny vs Pikachu could just be so the new Pokémon looks good in the trailer. For all we know that's the only hit it gets before Pikachu fries it to a crisp.

I don't think that this whole saga will just be them retelling old episodes but with Gou added to the cast.
I don't think that's the case either. I don't know why do you think I implied that.

However, as we will see Pikachu's backstory, which likely will include the reason for his original distrust to Ash, they may want to show how Pikachu and Ash become friends again.

The scene where Ash throws his alarm clock is most likely just him and Pikachu returning to Pallet Town, Ash feeling nostalgic and telling Pikachu the story of how he overslept on his first day of being a Trainer before he met Pikachu, demonstrating how his clock broke by throwing it.

And then the other scenes like Ash meeting Pikachu for the first time would obviously be reanimated flashbacks. It wouldn't be the first time they do something like that (Charizard returns episode in BW)

EDIT: Watched the trailer again. Ash is asleep when he throws the clock so it's not him retelling the story to Pikachu. But it could still be him just reliving that moment.

In the first episode, we will have Pikachu's backstory. In itself, it wouldn't be weird the episode ends with the meeting between Ash and Pikachu.

Except he's clearly dreaming and Pikachu ends up zapping him to wake him up. Could he be dreaming about his first day? I guess, but it'd be really random (who acts out his past like that?) and going a bit far for a continuity nod. Why act excited about potentially picking one of the starters when you could just spend time with the ones you've already trained? He's more excited in this scene than in any time he entered a new region.

The reboot possibility is also odd because Pikachu would be with him too early, but that could be explained by saying that Pikachu inspected his potential trainer and got tired waiting for him to wake up. He zapped him, rushed back to his ball and then they were properly introduced... after Ash realized that he was out of other options.

Where is it implied that he's picking a starter? For all we know, and with Ash being Ash, he's excited at the prospect of beginning his new journey. The Pokeball throwing scene happens at night so most likely it happens before he goes to bed. Besides, Pikachu has always been zapping Ash for oversleeping (one of the DP episodes come to mind).

The reboot possibility is also odd because Pikachu would be with him too early, but that could be explained by saying that Pikachu inspected his potential trainer and got tired waiting for him to wake up.

Now you're just picking at straws with the theories you're coming up with.

Yeah I already noticed he was asleep, my mistake. Point still stands.

Animated characters in service of a nostalgic reference do.

And this is somehow less farfetched than Ash reliving one of the most important moments in his life in his sleep?

It is like a combo of SM character designs and XY battle style. I only find Jotho so unclear on the poster.

I wonder which Pokémon the Trio is gonna use now they are back in Kanto

The only nitpick I have so far is how they draw the finger- and toenails of the characters. I hate it, I freaking hate it, when animes do that! A lot of animes draw the nails only half-finished. It looks so stupid. Either they should not draw them or if so, they should finish them. I hate it when characters have half-drawn finger- and toenails. I freaking hate it!:mad::annoyedVoltorb:(n)

If Ash is gonna use some older Pokemon he owns, i hope it are unevolved ones or Pokemon that need the focus.

I'm really excited for the new series, can't help but wonder if they'll leave Galar to last, you know save the best till last
Yeah that is my theory as well, they are going to go to all regions in chronological order, and when we are like 50 episodes in they will go to Galar and spend the rest of the episodes of the series there.

I hope they give us a fair bit of time in each region before jumping to the next but not too long

Maybe 10 episodes per region
