Why do I get the feeling the whilst Gen 4 was the best Gen with spinoffs and such, that Gen 8 would be the worst?

Also, Tangle in Glimwood Tangle sounds to me like a Tango Drink. I suppose I could see it as a Fleetwood Mac reference to Tango in the Night.

It is too dark to be Vulpix.
Look at the tails is all I can say. You can make out the six fluffy tails on the bottom right. Espeon has a sleeker body and an iconic upwards-pointing tail. If it were Espeon you would see the long tail sticking out but you don't.

This anime was also hinted by the buildup to it in the Pokemon Twitter page with the visit the different Regions.

That looks like an Espeon that is lying down, not to mention that the proportions are very inconsistent. While a few Pokemon don't appear in their respective regions, they appear right next door. Alola is opposite of Johto.

So, I have an interesting question. Now that Ash has won an official Pokemon League (Orange Islands don't count!) are they really going to go through the whole formula again in the Sword and Shield anime, or are they going to try out a different kind of story? They said this series would take place in "multiple regions", so that suggests some sort of change, but I don't know what extent it's going to be. Are we going to be seeing old characters from those regions, like Misty, Brock, May, Dawn, Iris, and Cilan?

Do we know if Gladio is a boy or a girl?
Yes, he is a boy. However with this companion, the eyelashes is a dead giveaway to her gender.

I'm hoping she is female, cause if they're going for what I think they are... Then my hopes for SwSh for the anime have been dashed completely.

We aren't going to reach a consensus on that with so little information. Even in the absence of an AU (a big if), older companions are not guaranteed.

Maybe That Girl is Ash's Cousin from Galar? Hey, If Professor Oak can have an Alolan Relative in both the game AND anime, Why can't Ash have a Relative from Galar?!
