    Okazaki's doing an opening now? Nice. I do like his voice, weirdly enough.

    I'm going to assume it'll be like Future Connection and we won't get team spoils and instead they'll be added in after they evolve.

    Hoping for some team spoilers, great visuals, song! *confirmation for Ash's brand new Eevee*

    ...and what about a new ending? the current one is already outdated just like the BW first opening was for almost all of its run.

    I am excited! I hope it is a song with a good beat aka Geta ban ban. And spoilers of course! The ending will maybe be the pikachu one back from XY for SM91

    I really hope that this brings another good opening song + ending! Alola and Future connection were good but the rehash of the season 1 one just felt kind of lazy to me, as they could have done something more original with that and I don't think the move was necessary but they could still have done something different with the season 1 japanese theme song.

    The first series pandering doesn't make me hype for the new arc but I'm glad Okazaki got to do an opening.

    Although it surprises me to see him doing so much songs for the show.

    Hopefully it is not comedy focused and bad like the last two two

    In what regard were the last two openings "comedy focused"?

    A letter to Ash from the children of Alola, eh? That sounds like an fun concept! Let’s hope the theme itself is just as fun.

    Even if I think he wrote that just gather interest for the song, it's still quite sweet of him and I do like his dedication to the show.

    A letter to Ash and all of the kids in Alola? That is an interesting idea for the song, I can’t wait to hear it.

    It really makes you realize how long this show has been running that the people making songs for it now were kids watching it when it first aired.

    Makes me wish I had talent in this field so I could do the same.

    If it’s a letter then I guess it’ll be a sweet and light-toned opening, possibly to inspire kids to have Ash as their role model. Especially from hearing the messages in the song.

    None of the members of ЯeaL were even BORN when the series premiered.

    Is the potential last message thing from the song writer himself or is that from Ash's point of view??

    ...from him, since he's the one writing the tweet.

    Probably just him acknowledging that SM is going to end in a year or so and that there's a pretty good chance he's not going to do a fourth Pokemon song.

    Well I do because I find it quite funny, which is what Sun and Moon is meant to be. It just suits the series so well.

    Has Taiiku Okazaki done other openings or endings or both before?
