How do you expect the writers to go about writing the 8th gen?

The problem I see with that is we clearly see the Grass Leader using Dynamax, and we can assume that Gym is pretty early on. The only Gym Leader to use a Mega was Korrina, so the anime had no problem sidestepping around the mechanic. But Dynamax seems to have a heavier focus on battle, so I’m not sure how they’re going to handle this.
Or how Ash will handle it: I mean you can give Ash no Mega, but fighting against giant pokemon is another thing

Ash will go to Galar with a train and who will he meet here? (wink, wink)

I’m thinking Sonia could end up as the female companion, solely for the fact that it’s a bit unclear as to if the opposite gender protagonists will be characters. The Direct did mention Hop was one of our rivals, so time will tell.

But Ash did not travel with a rival before. Could be interesting! I have tbh no idea how they will handle Ash, I think more serious and keeping Rotom of course

I hope that Ash has a mixed team this time

What does that even mean? I don't think his team will be that much different from how it's set up now, though. He'll have at least one Starter and probably the regional bird again this time, though.

If S&S is like DP/XY and Ash acts like those versions of himself, she definitely can come back. Shouldn't Kalos be close to Galar technically?
There's no guarantee that the next series will be like DP/XY and it shouldn't be like it anyways. It should be it's own thing and not copy off of another series; it just comes off as extremely lazy and it wouldn't interest me at all if it's like either series.

When they say "like" I'm sure they mean in the interest of matching the tone, that is to say a more competitive region and series when it comes to battles, which means a more focused and serious Ash. And there's quite a bit to suggest it could be. SM matched the atmosphere that Alola had in the games, but that kind of atmosphere wouldn't match the kind we seem to be seeing coming out of Sword and Shield.

I remembered when ORAS came out, people expected May would come out in XY anime because of the relation between the Gen 6 games, but they gave us Steven and Sawyer instead. I would assume if they're going to promote Kalos or XY again in SwSh, they probably going to make Diantha and an original rival from Kalos instead of Serena?
