Okay, this looks pretty legit. And it doesn't look too bad in my opinion. Though I really don't see anything that conclusively says this is an AU.

So maybe this is a stupid question but what is the landmark that represents Kanto supposed to be? The others are Tin Tower (Johto), Mt. Chimney (Hoenn), Mt. Coronet (Sinnoh), Driftveil Drawbridge (Unova), Lumiose Tower (Kalos), a tropical setting (Alola) and the Big Ben-like tower (Galar) but I really can't seem to recognize what Kanto is supposed to be.
Cinnabar mansion?

I'm thinking that Ash is getting neither Grookey or Sobble because I think that if he was then they would be shown alongside him in the poster because of how marketable the starters are.
Sobble in the 2020 calendar is more close to Scorbunny, so it’s likely.

It's mostly because the show is trying to appeal to both genders, as not having a female main character may turn young girls away from the series and give the image that Pokemon is only for boys.
Yeah, that's why. You can have both groups. If you do not have any elements that appeal to girls, you will lose half of your audience.

Not a bad guess if you ask me, but I think it's always been mostly portrayed as decrepit and worn down.

My best guess would be Celadon University, which has actually never appeared in the games or the anime.

I'm really hoping Bewear prevents Team Rocket from leaving Alola, they are better off selling Malasdas or anything other than stealing Pokemon

I think the Squirtle and Bulbasaur are Ash’s since there is no Charmander in sight (but there is a Charizard)

You're right, looking again it doesn't look like an old building. I thought of it because of the Ditto there. But looking at it again, it should be something else.

And yeah, Celadon University looks like a better guess.

The only thing that kinda worries me is, that the Galar region will not have a chance to really shine in the new anime since it has to share the spotlight with all of the other 7 regions.

The only way it would be a problem is if they decided to reboot everything and have Ash travel the regions in sequential order.

Maybe Galar will get more focus than the other regions

Ash looks less taller than SM ngl. But overall it looks cool and it seems to continue the Alolan Concept of having fun rather than having a linear goal.
