Please have Ash continue his badge quest in the new Spanish region. The way we missed out on a Galar adventure because of Journeys was so disappointing.
I've got my money on Quaxly being the "TPCi's Favorite Starter" this Gen in the same vein of Greninja, Charizard and Cinderace
Quaxly is the Starter with the highest likely chance of becoming Humanoid and we all know GF and TPCi likes to push the Humanoid Starters the hardest

Also not to mention just look at the way Quaxly is standing in the center. It really makes it look like He's the "Leader" of the Gen 9 Trio in a way.
It literally brings back memories of when Scorbunny stood in the middle of the Galar Trio (and the Scorbunny line got the best overall treatment from TPCi)View attachment 160590
Also is it me or does Quaxly's design vaguely look like a mashup of Scorbunny and Sobble's?
I don't want to get my hopes up, but that seems possible. At least returning to XY/SM levels of continuity.Apropos of nothing, I don't really mind whether Ash returns to Gym Challenge or does something fresh. What I really want is for there to be a strong sense of continuity - now I'm not referring to them constantly acknowledging past seasons, but rather for the series to be the opposite of Journeys which was in some ways great for casuals as you could jump in and out and even watch some episodes out of order completely since it was very episodic, but that didn't do it for me. Between a proper adventure that moves from place to place, to character development for both humans and Pokémon, I really would like more episodes to be connected and properly flow from one to the next so that you can't afford to miss a single episode.
Actually pairing up Team Rocket with a potential Evil Team in S/V would be an interesting change.Unpopular opinion but if Team Rocket stays I wouldn't mind them going back to their BW selves. Maybe they could do something interesting with that if Professor Turo turns out to be the bad guy. The futuristic legendary literally is a rocket?
The writers aren't trying to "finish it fast" it's that the show ran for 3 years and there's new games coming in November. This was expected.I can't see the JN format being used again, I say it's wrong!
It even seems that the writers seem tired of it and want to finish it fast!
That's a pretty big assumption given that we've only seen three NPCs so far and two of them are the version exclusive Professors. Even if they don't want to use the playable female trainer for part of the cast, it's way too early to say that the anime won't have any companion character to use for the main cast. I don't think a lot of people expected SM to use all of the Trial Captain characters and Lillie for its main cast. It's not impossible for them to create anime original characters again, but I'm not so sure about that since we barely seen any of the Scarlet/Violet characters.From what we know:
- The protagonists are bland because the customization feature is the main draw, most of the trailer showed customized trainers rather than the "real" trainers, so the anime will likely have no companion to use or make their own OC's again like Go/Koharu
We still don't know much about the games, so of course based on what little we do know there isn't a lot of build a series around it. I really don't think that open world format of the games is going to be an issue for the anime. There will still be a storyline for them to adapt and having a vast wide open region to explore could give them more to work with. They've taken creative liberties with most regions before given the amount of towns, cities and villages in-between all of the major locations from the games. I love Goh, but I don't see him sticking around. Project Mew seems like it would be an easy way for him to go on his own path. And since I don't see them restarting the PWC, I don't see them sticking with the world tour format. It isn't impossible, but I don't think it seems likely. I also don't know if they can make that format work either, especially when they didn't really spend more than a couple of episodes in most regions not named Kanto.They'll probably be some sort of trainers to battle if Gyms don't return, but I'm not sure this is enough to build a series around. Oddly enough the open world stuff suits Go since Ash is not going to capture pokemon mindlessly, but I don't know if he'll stick around. So I can see the world tour format staying.
I'm not sure about that. Quite a few people were certain that Journeys would cover multiple generations. Everything from going back to the Pocket Monsters title in Japan, Goh wanting to capture every Pokemon and Ash taking part in the PWC made people think that the series would last longer than the typical three year structure. At the very least, I don't think that was an uncommon theory. It was only until Scarlet/Violet were announced and especially the Master Class announced as the climax of the series that people generally accepted that the series was going to end in November.The writers aren't trying to "finish it fast" it's that the show ran for 3 years and there's new games coming in November. This was expected.
Ash will most likely continue on regardless if he wins or loses. As many have stated a thousand times, it is far too late (as in years and years late) for them to replace Ash now with how iconic he is to the anime.I don thin goh continues in the series probably he's going to mew expedition or something like that. Btw I'm curious if ash has going to the next región if he's beating Leon,maybe for the 25 anniversary of anime he disappear of the series or reboot theme,if he lose against Leon it would be so sad and if he win there's no chance to continue on the series.
I'm going to guess around August or September perhaps. I think that's around the time when we started hearing news about PM2019.I was thinking, when can we expect to start getting info about the next series (assuming PM2019 will end). I don't remember how early the previous series were announced.
I think that they started the promotion for Journeys surprisingly late, but I suspect that we'll get some news on the next series around August or September as well. They might wait until after Ash vs. Leon concludes since they'll probably want to focus on promoting the Master Class matches before moving onto the next series.I was thinking, when can we expect to start getting info about the next series (assuming PM2019 will end). I don't remember how early the previous series were announced.
If they did got for a reboot, they'd probably wipe the entire slate clean, not just have Alternate Ash who did not win the Alola League and PWC as the main character. While it wouldn't be impossible for them to do a reboot, I still think it's a bit unlikely. Even if Ash does win the PWC, I don't think that means that the only way to keep Ash around is if they reboot the anime. Despite how much fans hype up the PWC, I don't think its outcome is going to determine what Ash will do in the next series. Ash being the Alola League Champion wasn't mentioned for over seventy episodes and it was not at least the in-universe reason as to why they created the PWC. A big reason why the PWC felt so overhyped to me even from the start was because it felt more like they wanted Ash to have quick and/or short battles as opposed to the next step in his goal. The fact that they only started having his matches being the center focus of an episode more consistently in the Hyper Class doesn't help matters either.What if Ash wins and the creators give a new series with an Alternate Ash who didn't win the Alola League and M8? The story would continue with Alternate Ash collecting badges in other regions.
