    This is the new thread for the human cast of the upcoming Pocket Monsters anime. Feel free to discuss potential cast dynamics, characters' personalities, roles, purposes, goals, etc. You can also discuss possible appearances and personalities of characters confirmed to appear in the Sword/Shield games.

    Do NOT discuss who's going to catch what Pokémon! We have a separate thread for that.

    This is the story of "Satoshi", a boy who wants to be the best at Pokémon battling,
    and "Go", a boy who dreams of getting every Pokémon.

    which will be had together with lots of Pokémon,

    So it's just the two of them then? If so fine with me as a duo is pretty exciting.

    Also I guess this doesn't quite rule out the reboot theory
     
  3. Has Ash always been described this way by promotional material? Because this seems like new information to me.

    It might refer to the events of M20, if this follows the reboot movie version of Ash.

    Here comes the meltdown that Ash is 10 again...

    Yeah, this is definitely a reboot. They make Ash leave by winning a fake league. Hail the writers...

    I was so looking forward to the "Are you a boy or girl" memes coming from Go. We still don't have enough.

    I don't get why people are obsessed with his age to the point they outright melt down

    Yeah, that bit is new. The rest of his profile is more or less recycled from elsewhere.

    Anyone else thinks gous dream might change early on? Instead of catching every Pokémon he decides to befriend them all instead.

    We could get an early ep where he catches something but releases it after realising he would be taking it from it's friends/family so he decides to befriend everything instead

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    I'm getting that vibe as well.. Paired with the logo similarities to the reboot-movies. Guess Sun and Moon was the end for OG-Ash.

    I am interested to know how will ash and gou will meet each other, and since gou is deutraganist i hope his story and personality is original unlike with dawn whose story and personality was copied from OS ash.

    I could see gou visiting pallet town while ash is there and ash deciding to acompany him

    Pretty sure the encounter it’s talking about is with Ho-oh. And I doubt this is movie Ash because of the hat. Movie Ash doesn’t change his hat.

    Yeah. This is new.

    An encounter that make Ash wants to be the best at battling.

    That seems to be reboot.

    I'm starting to think that this is the end of Ash's story and Go will completely replace him as the main protagonist starting in the Gen 9 saga.

    I still hope we see Marnie as Ash's main rival

    If they really are going to have Go catch a bunch of Pokemon, I’m assuming that they might be in montages. The important ones that stay on his team might get dedicated episodes though.

    Go is probably our excuse to go to other regions and feature them. If you're going to catch them all, you might as well go to their native regions and catch them there.

    I suspect that is the encounter with Ho-oh too. However, we will see that again in the first (one hour) episode?

    I don't think he is Movie Ash, but it could be a totally new version of Ash.

    I just want the answer of what ash is going to do in all these old regions. Maybe rematches with gym leaders in preparation for something? Or just for training purposes, to train up his whole team?

    Or is he going to be a tag along like Brock?
