I think we cant blame any series to take a break or not a company. I know it sucks, but that is life. Threads like these (and no offense to the creator of this thread) are about that we cant watch pokémon. That is it. We cant change the facts or hope that it will air sooner. We dont have a crystal ball to see in the future. We have to have some patience.

Oh, I'm not blaming Yokai Watch or anything. I just find it weird that OLM Studio doesn't seem to be having trouble with Yokai Watch's production at all, when almost half of their currently airing anime is still on hiatus.

How far ahead is Yokai Watch's production compared to Pokemon? And also TV Tokyo perhaps is wanting to keep some new episodes ready to be aired later on while still at least keeping a few shows going during the pandemic?

Yo-kai Watch CEO has clearly confirmed that they are using Teleconference to Record Episodes ever since late-April, it would be really nice if we could get anything about the Production for Pokemon but they've been so secretive for no reason ever since this hiatus has started. It's weird OLM is having so many Terrible Production Issues with PM even though they even have a studio dedicated to it in Malaysia. Yo-kai Watch is barely low priority and the Animation is still so smooth.

I would hope that they're working on incorporating safety measures so that voice actors can record safely. My Hero Academia's fifth season is just about to start its voice recording based on an update from Funimation and they are doing just that. I assume more studios are going to go for similar methods since it's probably going to be awhile before they can record like they used to. I just hope that the safety measures keep everyone safe and allow for production on anime like Pokemon to resume.

Do OLM and TVTokyo just give that much more priority to Yokai Watch as a franchise?
No, it probably has more to do with how the two shows are recorded at two completely different recording studios; Pocket Monsters (2019) at Half H・P Studio, Yokai Watch Jam at L Studio. I'm betting it just boils down to one studio remaining open while the other's decided to close.

That's pretty interesting, I never knew that Yokai Watch and Pokemon used different recording studios. So I guess L Studio is using newer technology to comply with pandemic measures, hopefully Half H・P Studio can follow suit then.

If Yokai Watch Jam can continue airing, that probably means OLM Studio can produce anime in a timely manner even with their staff working from home.
