    Heck, part of me can't even believe they're bothering with a League since they've mucked up the Island Trials and there's barely any battling, let alone good battles, in this saga...

    This isn't going to be a League. It's going to be a formality. (a poorly done one if they don't REALLY turn things around).

    I sure hope not :confused:
    This saga already favors slice of life fillers--not even good slices at that--over a plot or story without making them do it for a 4th year.
    Heck, they could resort to a Orange Islands/DA filler arc and I'd have trouble telling the difference between how that'd be much different from how they're doing things now...:cautious:

    You mean like the Kalos League? The writers didn't give two craps about that. It was an afterthought, seeing how they rushed through it to get to the Team Flare finale.

    It'll be hard to be worse than Kalos League ended up being

    Yeah, kind of.
    At least we had the Flare finale to make up for the Legaue. Or at least I really liked it. Heck, I was more interested in/looking forward to Team Flare thane the League from the start. And heck, I think I'm the only person satisfied with how the Kalos League went. Oh sure, the first 2 episodes sucked, but after that it was pretty good. Besides, I NEVER thought for a second Ash would win. :p

    As I said, Alola has little battling to begin with and few rivals. Unless they turn things around big time in 2019 (and what's left this year), it really won't be much a of a League...:cautious:

    I really wanted Flare to interfere in the finals so that we didnt have to see Greninja crushed for the third time...

    I don't see them *not* taking a break for New Year's.

    I'm guessing Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution will come out July 12th, so I can see TV-Tokyo taking the 7th off to air Everyone's Story. And then no new episode on the 14th.

    Why would they take a two-week break on July? Last September's was enough, and there's bound to be one between the SM finale and the next series' premiere.

    Because they've done it with every movie when the movie's released.

    No, they only do one-week breaks usually.

    Gag returns, but without full episode number.

    C-087 could be a reference to TM87, Swagger, one of Tsareena's primary moves.

    I'm not sure if I could see SM ending that early in October. It really depends on when the new generation games come out. An October release wouldn't be out of the question and there could be a week or two break between the end of SM and the start of a new series as well. However, I think a November release would be more likely given that has been when most of the main series titles have been released lately and early Christmas shoppers would help to boost the sales even more. I could see SM lasting until late October or early November with that in mind.

    People are forgetting about the 1-Hour specials which they do and the 2 Specials at the end, I have a feeling SM is gonna last longer than BW and XY if it runs till November, it'll at least last 145-150 Episodes, If we don't get the Gen 8 Game announced this month and its announced it late February which mostly means it'll release in mid-November just like Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon so let's see.

    November 17, 2019 - New Anime Series Starts

    Those are my predictions, it may end one week earlier if they throw another One-Hour Special in there ( Never Trust TV Tokyo )...

    They take one-week breaks when they air two-parter specials. There is also other breaks.

    138 episodes for SM seems likely to me. The amount of episodes per series has been decreasing by 2 since Best Wishes, which counts 142 episodes. XY counts 140 and now that SM follows up after XY and has teased us twice with the magical number 138, I think it will count 138 episodes.
