A thread to discuss the upcoming Pokémon anime that will not only feature the new Galar region from Sword & Shield but also other past Regions as well. Ash Ketchem is once again returning, and this time is joined by a young boy who judging by the poster has a Scorbunny.



So, what do you guys think?

And I don't believe that's a real poster. I'd figure we'd either drop Ash or at least have a girl in the show too. As the old "joke" about why they changed characters each year says.

Eh. Popular internet people said not to trust it just yet considering how many times leaks have been true for things like Smash Bros, so that's fine if it was true.

I'm excited.

I liked how in this trailer Scorbunny, using a foot, showed Pikachuu where is its place.

Starts with Pikachu's early time. That could be fun to see. But I wonder how this will work.

The animation is looking really crisp and clean - I dig it. <3

Looks like both Satoshi and Gou suffer from Daimon Masaru's Syndrome.

I grew out of Pokemon when I was 15 (around HeartGold SoulSilver time) but I'm still highly disappointed that Ash is the main character again.
Why not use the game characters for once like Generations or the movie openings?
Or make two new characters instead of just the one.
The other kid that looks Hau inspired seems cool.
If Pokemon was kind of dark like the B&W trailers, and generations, it might be worth watching.

But kids like things that are familiar to them...

Still....

For Digimon character designs Takuya is one of my favourite characters, and Haru is cool too. Tai is cool but seeing a new face is nice. Daisuke has a cool design too.

Why can't Pokemon do it...
