    Another interesting observation is why does Ash's collar resemble the Spanish flag? Pretty weird design choice to have it there randomly, unless they're hinting at something. Maybe this artstyle is for gen 8, and the region is based off of Spain.

    I'm really digging the artstyle tbh

    You know I wonder if all the Pokemon movies coming out now are going to be set in the same universe as movie 20 like movie 21 is from now on or if were going to get some movies that are set in the same universe as main anime series again.

    I very much like the art-style as well. It seems even better due to the contrast with Sun and Moon's over-simplified and non-serious style. While i would enjoy something akin to this in Gen VIII, it's worth noting that the movies have much larger animation budgets than the show, so that's probably the reason we're getting something so out there. Maybe what we'll get might be close, but it won't be this good.

    I think it's just going to be a Gen VII thing, since the theme of this generation seems to be doing things differently. Plus there's the fact that Sun and Moon's large cast, lack of focus, and emphasis on comedy wouldn't lend itself well to movies, so this is their excuse to avoid that issue.

  5. Ooooor maybe it looks so good because WIT is collabing on this one and they made Attack on Titan so it looks gorgeous anyways. Who knows.

    I’m personally super-stoked for this movie because of the beautiful animation style, plus confirmation that this takes place in the same world as M20. I can’t wait for more news!

    That's definitely a big part of it. Probably goes alongside that bigger budget thing I mentioned, though. As a bigger budget allows them to bring in better animators.

    I noticed on the poster that Ash's shoes look similar to his SM shoes and he's wearing shorter pants. Makes me wonder if this is set in alternate world Alola, but with Lugia.

    Well. It seems that Alola is once again not getting a movie set in its own region. This may seem bad, but it actually bodes well for the anime because they can include more stuff like legendaries, Ultra Beasts, and Rainbow Rocket in the show instead of sticking them in a movie where another mythical would hog the spotlight.

    It seems to be a continuation from last movie.

    He has the same hat from M20.

    Yeah, not denying that, just wondering if his outfit is a clue to where the movie takes place.

    Zipper4242 Bewear is the most powerful being in the universe.

    Different outfit from M20 (namely collar) that I saw. Maybe this is yet ANOTHER AU?

    Huh, I don't mind the idea of a continuation of M20 as a separate continuity. Sometimes without having the show to restrain them they can do more stuff (like the whole Ho-oh thing in M20). On the other hand, not sure I care for the new art style, or that new girl's look. Maybe when we'll get more trailers and artwork I'll have a better reaction. And really surprised to hear they're bringing in that studio to help with the art. M20 looked really good, I hope they can keep that quality up.

    I kind of hope they don't just redo the Lugia movie though. I love that movie but rather they got in their own direction by now. Kind of too bad we won't get to see the Alola gang in a movie (they've grown on me), at the rate they're going, though that probably also depends on whenever the Switch game is ready.

    Wow, I can’t decide what’s worse; the last movie overall, or the art design for this movie..

    I hate the route they’re taking. They should’ve definitely continued by making new Alola movies, not by revisiting and completely rewriting the past..

    Actually it seems more like it's the same Ash from movie 20 as he has the same hat as the one from movie 20, it's more of a case of it just movie 20 Ash getting a new redesign for the movie similar to how the Ash in the main anime series tends to get a redesign each time he goes to a new region for the most part.

    With how successful last movie was. The stale of hoopa and volcanion movies underwhelming at bo makes sense

    Prior to movie 20, the formula for the films have been getting stale. I'm glad they are experimenting and trying new things.

    They aren't rewriting the past, as that would imply that somehow this movie overrides Pokemon movie 2000 the power of one, as movie 21 is most likely set in the same universe as movie 20, which is a different universe from the universe that main anime and the Pokemon movies 1-19 are set in. Plus I don't expect this to just be a remake of the power of one movie sure, it will probably have some similarities but the same time it's going to have plenty of differences.

    the only concern i have is that if this is a retelling of the lugia movie, zeraora will just get shoehorned into the plot for no reason.
