That's only two weeks from now. Makes sense since we are finally starting Akala

YES! The new rendition of the opening theme is here! The dub is screwed for already using it for XY but they'll reuse it again. I can't wait for the new graphics and scenes in the opening. I hope they replicate a few scenes from the opening and old characters like Delia, Prof Oak, & Gary appear like they used to.

Interesting that the title of the song is the same as the very first opening of the entire anime to cap off its 20th anniversary.

What captures/evolutions are they going to spoil in this episode?

I wonder if the new opening is going to show scenes from the upcoming movie or if it will show scenes from the anime itself. In any case, I'm looking forward to hearing Matsumoto-san singing "Mezase Pokémon Master" again! :D I wonder if this will be a remix of sorts or it will be close to the original theme song.

Hope this opening shows some scenes of Ash's Akala trial battles.

It usually is just like XY&Z, (V)Volt, Be An Arrow!, and the DP opening themes. We did hear a little bit of it in the last movie trailer and they usually do incorporate the movie scenes in the themes temporarily. I hope miss Rica shares a link or something. Perform at Pokenchi!! :3

Though I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be a movie exclusive theme, I'm really hoping that they use the same version they did in the trailer for Movie 20. I've rewatched that trailer I don't know how many times just for that song. :D

I believe she performed it at the Tokyo Toy Show concert on Sunday, I see people on Twitter say she sang "Mezase Pokemon Master" there.

Listening to Rica singing aside, there is literally only ine thing I want to see.

Please spoil Brionne. Please spoil Brionne. Please spoil Brionne.

Then we'd have a realistic shot at seeing a Primarina on the main cast eventually.

Seeing hints of future plot and Totem battles is nice, but I will be one happy Latias if we get to see Lana's baby seal grow up.

Does any1 have a clue why they would use the original opening song? Will it have to do something with the plot?

I expected it to be anniversary stuff mixed with movie promotion.

YAAAHOOO
I think because this is season 20 of the anime, and probably ties in with the whole movie 20.
