They seem to prefer designs from remakes (mostly FRLG in Kanto's case).

I wouldn't bet on more villains since there are already three teams in this game. Gym leaders and such don't require much of a story, but villains shouldn't lack any context. I guess Hoopa could just teleport them (which is pretty much what happened in USUM), but eh.

Do't the remakes overwrite the canon so it is like the original games don't exist? I thought I saw someone say it once.

The mere fact that May, Dawn and Serena are all suspiciously absent so far whereas other female leads are in is pretty telling. Most gacha games purposely hold back popular characters for special events, and it's pretty obvious the 3 female protagonists who got big roles in the anime and were popular in the games too aren't here.

Rosa getting billed as the star in this is probably because she has no anime appearance and the company wanted to advertise lesser-known female leads. If you notice Kris, Lyra, Hilda, etc are here too. Meanwhile we do have Brendan from ORAS, other DP characters, and so forth.

I wonder what events they have planned for May, Dawn or Serena. You wouldn't see all 3 of them held back from launch unless they were planning something for whenever they get added. Is it a coincidence the 3 most well known player characters due to their huge exposure in the anime aren't in this so far? I think not. I wouldn't be surprised if May launches with all 3 outfits for her (R/S, Emerald and ORAS) rather than just possibly ORAS to garner up revenue.

Oh wow, three outfits right off the bat. Definitely worth the wait.

It's well established that each game exists as one branch of a multiverse. Kris and Lyra co-exist in Masters, but not in the main series.

Since there's supposed to be alternate outfits, I'm looking forward to Steven's .... though it might be just his RSE outfit or the anime one from AG. Or maybe the TCG sleeve illustration where he's shown without a jacket. Unless the characters had actual drastic redesigns like Elesa, the alternate outfits might be just ones they had in prior games/anime/merch.

I haven't seen the Brock one before, so here's for some wishful thinking...

Brock, Blue, Cynthia and Siebold all have new outfits. Cheren is the only one (so far) whose Sygna outfit is from another game.

I'm still waiting for Volkner to join the game, hopefully they'll give him a nice deep voice. Norman's voice in Masters is still kinda taking time getting used to lol

If Archie and Maxie make it in and it's not their ORAS designs, I'm gonna be so mad.
I can see that, given them being turned good after ORAS events.

Other than that, Anabel and Zinnia would work, so will Guzma and Plumeria be in.

I can imagine we gonna mass-team-up with Archie, Elesa, N, Guzma, Grimsley, Lucas, Saturn, and others in confronting Team Masters Rocket. At that point, Team Masters Rocket gonna be outnumbered by "good-side" trainers.

It'll just be whomever the player chooses to battle, as always. Some characters might say the usual spiel about Pokemon being friends, but actions speak louder than words.

One of the main things I’m curious about is who’s going to be fought in the Evolution Sync Pair Stories that haven’t been revealed yet.
From what I’ve seen so far, it seems to primarily be characters who debuted in the same region (Barry vs. Cheryl) or have the same type specialty (Pryce vs. Wulfric). I’m personally hoping they don’t completely adhere to this and throw in some variety (Rosa vs. Brock).
