Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

So what episodes you thibk we might get for july
Assuming that Project Mew episodes are going to be spread over the course of the series. I think it's safe to assume that we are going to get a new OP soon with all the new content coming up with mega lucario, gengar getting some focus (gigantamax gengar been appearing in merch quite a bit), ultra class members and probably at least 2 old companions. One of them is most likely going to be Dawn with all the piplup merch. I'm expecting a month of filler and maybe 1 episode contributing to plot.

As for the new content, I agree, but the OP will remain the same (as far as I know, only the people who sing it change).

I think it's a bit early for Dawn to come back. If she was to come back because of the BDSP promotion, it better be back in the fall (to be closer to the game release).

I meant new visuals and scenes.

She probably wouldn't appear until 3-4 months after the new OP anyways.

Can't relate. The "alola family" stuff felt more in-your-face than any other season. It's like alola is the only place that matters and kanto-kalos were mere detours. I know that wasn't the intention but it certainly felt like they were undermining his relationship with his previous companions.
You're literally the only one who thinks that lol. Strange how you would believe it undermines the previous series. The whole THEME of SM is family. Ash literally lived in Alola. He didn't just travel there, he LIVED there. He lived in a house with Kukui and Burnet who were exactly like his parents in the way they took care of them. Makes perfect sense for Alola to be Ash's second home
Calling alola his family is directly undermining his previous relationships. It implies that others aren't as important to him as his "alolan family".
No it doesn't. Misty and Brock literally proved his bonds with past companions is strong as hell. Feels like you're getting insecure about Ash's past relationships for no reason when the anime never implied what you're saying

I Apologize if that is pointless to ask but... I think it's the time for unpopular opinion.
Why don't Pokemon Writers LOVE to write Alola much as Hoenn and Kalos? I thought those episodes are good Except for SOME filler episodes, Unova could be written better in some fanfiction if done right, as for Alola? They could be written better too without comedy.
Cause Alola doesn't need episodes??
We were just there and there's only a few Alola Pokemon I even want to see due to them not being done justice(Komodo line/Sandslash. And Ash's Incineroar in a fight but this can happen anywhere)

I'd much rather get Unova episodes, it's been a long time and we don't see much Unova Pokemon at all, and Ash hasn't faced quite a few characters there. He beat everyone in Alola apart from Kiawe, why do I want a rematch against anyone this soon? He's the only one there I wanna see Ash face as we were constantly robbed of a battle! Unova has Grimsley(my hopes and dreams), Shauntal, that guy whose name always escapes me, Caitlin, Marlon, Drayden.. and a possible rematch with Cilan against Subway bros!

Unova and Johto are the only ones that need episodes

I want some episodes involving ash not just goh in fact based on my last post Why not have him bond with an espeon/umbreon like in yesterday's episode where James befriended morpkeo but ash saves espeon/urmbeon from danger and start admiring him and they interact with eevee as ash tells the story of what happened to goh and Chloe. in the end eevee wants umbreon/ espeon to stay since they grew a bond
I definitely want ash to have more focus but I don’t think he should get an eeveelution this time around. Maybe in a future region where there’s an eeveelution that’s a dragon type or something

So? We're just exchanging opinions, that's the point of forums.

I don't think living in a country is any different than traversing it, especially when you're spending your time with the same people. Ash spent his alola days with Kukui and burnett ; similarly he spent his hoenn days with brock, may and max. The "living together" part is all the same. If spending time together is your definition of a family then Ash-serena-bonnie-clemont are a family and yet they're never advertised as such. kukui and burnett are certainly promoted as "ore no arora kazoku" every episode which makes it even more annoying. It doesn't feel organic or natural at all.

That being said it's not like i hate SM in particular. I'm not a fan of le family dynamic and SoL in general.

Ash lived with Kukui and Burnet as a family
He travelled with his companions like best friends
Plus, Serena is the one who has had a romantic angle with Ash, no one else had that. So does Serena having that cheapen the past companion bonds? Coz thats the same logic

Too lazy to pick a pic
Because it would take the needed attention of Koharu. It wasn't for Eevee that was introduced to suddenly become completely out of focus.
As I said before, it’ll be very disappointing if every eeveelution centered event is a Chloe episode. But, no one can do nothing if that’s the case.

So anyone has any idea what to expect from the new opening next week
More Project Mew scenes, Ash, pikachu and Go running along assorted pokemon, special guest characters, obligatory Leon cameo, Chloe being Chloe, obligatory Team Rocket funny cameo and, with some luck, Ash’s team with new additions.

I am mostly looking forward to a teaser containing possible returning characters.

For the last two intros, they included major characters that were integral to Ash's journey. Even Korrina was somewhat of a travelling companion in Ash's group, so I am hoping that this is also the case this time, and not made to just tease Volkner.

Since we had Alola, followed by a BW Rep, I think that the next big set of returning characters should either be May & Max or Clemont & Bonnie.

I feel like they can save Dawn until after the release of BD/SP. Of course, they can always have multiple returning big characters which I definitely would not mind, do not think it's plausible though, at least not at the moment.

With a supposed piplup coming soon, I don’t think we’ll see Dawn so soon, or the social media and similar would be doing some promotion like was with Iris, Gary and their voice actors.

About Korrina, well, she was a companion, even if not a permanent one. The same goes for Todd (surprised he didn’t come back, with the new PKM Snap), N and Alexa.

May and Max aren't returning. May has VA issues while Max has no reason to come back unless Norman is in the PWC and will battle Ash in the Hyper Class.
