predictions of the future Scarlet and Violet anime

Okay here my Speculation idea for next gen anime

You know when Ash started his journey his friends where Gym Leaders(Misty and Brock and others), so what if now that Ash is a champion and number 1 or 2 in the WCS his new friends are upgraded to E4 or the gen 9 champion, We never get a main cast character that is an E4 or a champion right.

What do you guys think?.

Ash loses to Leon in the finals and the latter stays Monarch while PWC ranks reset.
The new Scarlet and Violent Champion enters the PWC and shocks everyone by defeating Leon in the PWC.
He/She then quit the PWC and Ash really wants to battle him/her.

The S&V Anime series have an Orange Island/Mainline game type design where one must defeat a set of Gym Leaders/ Elite four members to challenge the champion.

Ash decides to travel to the new Region and gather all the necessary badges etc to challenge the S&V Champion.

The S&V region champion should be the antagonist for that series as well... There isn't an evil region champion yet.

I don't think they need to be evil just a jerk.

I do like the idea of the SV Champion being Ash's rival for the next series. Not sure what sort of relationship they should have. Should they be friendly or antagonistic like Paul was?

I mean like the champion is also the leader of an evil organization and is the main villain. Dunno why they haven't thought of that yet..... even in the games. Closest we had that is when N beat Alder in BW.

Probably because then they can’t be brought back for a tournament arc like the other champions if they’re dead or in jail.

If SV has a school setting the champion might be young and only be a few years older than Ash. If they’re antagonistic they’d be to quote TVTropes a Jerk Jock or Alpha ***** and the evil team would be their posse. Not exactly a “conquer the world” group.

Well before, Ash was always shown to be substantially weaker than Elite four members and even more weaker than Regional Champions. Hence, if a Regional Champion was an antagonist, there would've been literally no stopping him/her.

I guess that changes now in Journeys. Hence, it certainly is possible to include a Regional Champion as the main atagonist.

Ash losing to Leon and then time skipping a few years could work. Let him take time off from battling and mature only for him to come back wanting his chance at victory.

Let him go through the plot of SV (quickly) as a ramp up to the start of another PWC. That way they can showcase the new region and pokemon and then bring back the journeys style of old friends/Pokémon (except he’ll actually use his reserves throughout).

The moment you use Time Skip to justify switching out Leon for a stronger Champion, you might as well have Ash win.

A few years is enough time for Ash to lose the World Champion Title to someone else. And that alone would be enough to justify Ash travelling in SV.

Generation 4 was how I got into Pokémon
Honestly after seeing Ash losing in the Kalos league but him winning in the Alola League I honestly don't care at this point. Regardless of whatever the outcome is I'm still wondering when he's going to become that "Pokémon Master" that he's always dreamed of because we heard it so many times. Time and time I always heard him say "I am going to go to this new region which will make me become stronger and become a Pokemon Master". So if I would guess it would just be Ash starting fresh by going to the new region just with Pikacku and then suddenly meeting someone new who becomes the new traveler.

TBF there has been a gradual sense of progress in Ash's goal.

Top 16, Top 8, Top 8, Top 4, Top 8 (a hiccup but every journey has those), Top 2, Champion, from there he's gone up from the regionals to the nationals with the PWC.

If he beats Leon he becomes the World Champion.

"What next?" is a very good question.

Finally becoming a Pokemon Master would be the next logical step for Ash, but would the writers actually do it? I'm not going to say no, but I won't say yes either because it would supposedly mean the end of Ash's journey and is that a line that they'd be willing to cross?
