    Sucks Guzma, or at least present Guzma didn't appear again before the League. Same with Hau...

    Hope all the anime OCs and classmates not named Kiawe get knocked out fast

    And really stinks Meltan didn't get another episode either, he's just going to evolve in the middle of a battle isn't he? *sigh*

    now that I think of it, this also means we'll get 2 pokefan scans about the league (the april one and the june one)

    That's how Sun & Moon rolls, buddy! :p

    Though on the other hand, they could be saving Melmetal up for a bigger storyline...

    Yup, sounds about right assuming there are no more breaks after the traditional movie break.

    Probably we're in for a post-league arc (a la Team Flare) OR maybe 1 farewell episode for each classmate and a Pallet Town episode.

    How could it evolve in the middle of battle without the other nineteen?

    They rush onto the field like Brock's siblings to protect their brother, and the referees are too confused to do anything about it.

    Unova League is the shortest one so far, right? 6 episodes (one almost full filler episode so 5.1 eps).

    They could pull a Don Tournament and cramp the league in 4 episodes and most of the battles be 1 vs 1 and the semifinal and finals 3 vs 3.

    I hope for at least a 7 episode league tho.

    Yep. 5 or 6, depending on if you want to count BW105 (which I don't :p )

    Yeah. I for one can see lot of Z-Move OHKOs and/or only showing part/bits of a battle <_<

    Sure, there are a lot of characters here. But there were a lot in the BW tournaments and Kalos League...

    I guess this also cements no Misty or Brock for the league, they would have been announced if they were getting a third return like usual.

    Honestly I expect nothing from this league. Nothing at all. This is not me hating on SM this is just me being numb to it at this point. If something good happens that is fine but my expections are so low I'm in hell. It would be an interesting plot twist if the Gen 8 anime began earlier than the games release. Actually by doing that it might build up more hype for the games. I personally would not hate an arc post league where it is Ash doing random stuff but not in Alola but in the world as a whole. Like he goes to Celdadon to pick up something for his mom or he goes to Hoenn for something. Just random episodes but all around the pokemon world.

    Ooh, starting a little earlier than I thought. I can't wait to see who is working on these episodes. Hopefully Iwane, Yamazaki and Oohashi at the very least.

    dude, a post league arc would be like 5 episodes at best
    These latest episodes have had me unsatisfied animation-wise, I hope that's just because they're saving the A game for the league

    I think you are over estimating how long this league will be. I can see it as 3 to 4 episodes just due to how battles are done and how weak most of the people are minus Ash and Gladion. I would not be shocked if they try to make a few battles comedy based. But even if it was 6 to 7 episodes that would still be around 8 episodes till SwSh and that is assuming it is early november

    Like I said, I foresee a short League.

    Hell, I can't even believe they're bothering with a League with how little battling there is in this saga...:confused:

    I wouldn't mind if Ash loses in the first round if it means someone else from the main cast wins the league. Ash's league performances bore me anyways.

    Anyone expecting an action packed league will be disappointed. I have not seen a battle that was anything special yet in SM. Doesn't help the classmates are weak and most have two pokemon max.
    Ash could win but the win would not feel like a real win to me.

    Wouldn't that be something? He loses the Kalos League when he's at his best, but wins the Alola League when he's barely even a trainer this saga...:confused:

    I think we'll go like this.

    1st round: 1 vs 1
    2nd round: 2 vs 2
    3rd round: 3 vs 3
    4th round+: 4 or more vs four or more
