I think that Ash will wear Masaru's clothes, only with a baseball cap instead of a beanie. Although, they could break tradition and have Ash wear a beanie.
cough Orange Islands? cough Battle Frontier? Alola’s League was the exception since that’s the first ever League in Alola. That’s Kinder Surprise prizes of a rookie League compared to the already established big Leagues.Except you know as well as me at the writers do not stick to traditions. If they did then Ash would have lost to Gladion.
Is 'Viktor' the new 'Claire'? And by something like Chronicles, do you mean one-off episodes that aren't part of a bigger subplot?I hope for both Viktor and Gloria. However I don't want to see again the female character that follows Ash without doing anything important. I would like to see something like Pokemon Chronicles.
I don't find this odd because I feel like generally, Ash's art isn't revealed until or after the companions are. I'm almost certain the SM cast (including Ash) was all revealed at once. DP they showed Dawn and Paul first, which was why people thought Ash was done then. The only art that's been revealed in relation to this series so far is the starters. We haven't seen any humans as of yet.It is weird not having any official Gen8 Ash art revealed...
We already know the series will feature all the regions, how is it proof they will be featured equally ?
Where's the 'equally' part, or are you assuming that all the starter Pokemon plushies being promoted at the same time implies that each region will receive the same amount of screentime and attention? Because that still seems like a stretch to me.
Gosh I hope this is true, this would be amazing. But at the same time, it basically is a 30 Minute Weekly commercial for the franchise...Being "set in all regions" doesn't necessarily mean that they will all be featured equally. It just means that the writers can take Ash to any region that they want. The first region will probably be Galar, and I'm sure that it will get the love it deserves, but after that Ash can leave and spend time in another region.
I've come to the conclusion that reverting the title of the series simply to "Pocket Monsters" is a way to finally separate the anime from the games. Starting now, the anime will serve to promote the entire franchise, with the core games being only one part of that. I believe that the anime will become completely reactive to whatever happens to be hot with the Pokemon franchise at the time. In November, the new hotness will be Sword and Shield, and as such the anime will give it plenty of attention. But when the next big thing comes along (Sinnoh remakes/Masters expansion/etc.) the show will switch on a dime to promote that.
I believe that this will be the last Pokemon series, but that it will continue indefinitely. Instead of creating a new series for every core game, each new release will be treated with their own arc in this new long-form series. The best example I can think of would be Battle Frontier. It largely existed as a promotion for FRLG, even though it was still part of Advanced Generation. Obviously this was done due to Gen 4 being delayed, but I think this helps point the way for the future of the series. Ash will continue from one major arc to another, without the need for a soft reboot.
By the way if there IS a Sinnoh arc next year, I hope it will be Battle Frontier part 2.
True, but isn't that sort of the case already? If the writers are passionate enough, they can make something amazing out of it.Gosh I hope this is true, this would be amazing. But at the same time, it basically is a 30 Minute Weekly commercial for the franchise...
Doesn't the anime taking place in all regions, kind of contradict the idea that its a 30 minute commercial?Gosh I hope this is true, this would be amazing. But at the same time, it basically is a 30 Minute Weekly commercial for the franchise...
