So Penny battles with Eeveelutions on her teams according to the leaks. Meaning she would be a female version of Virgil

He has returned.
It has only been done once and fans have complained about it once. A premise shift in SM and JN were not resets.

Ash has been "reset" to a degree ever since back in hoenn, be it through using nothing but new pokemon that have to be raised from the ground or in some cases his own skill like in BW, thankfully things have rebounded since then with each series afterwards increasing Ash's growth despite being reset pokemon wise.

Kalos kept his trainer skill, Alola finally allowed him to win a regional league.

Jn's allowed Ash to finally use pokemon that he should rightfully be using when he's not under the "Reset" button because he's that skilled.

to take that away heading into SV (which I know some people want), would just as bad as what they did with unova.

I know there are three paths.
I have listed only those that are already known.
We only really know about the gym challenge story route. We don’t know what the treasure hunt is. It might not be a story path option, and its premature to mention it as one of the story paths.

Well, simply put, Ash can't do any of the three stories unless he is reset, BW-style.
Again…we don’t know what 2/3rds of the story path options are, so we can’t say that he has to be reset to do any of them.

Anime will replace Penny with Chloe, our new protagonist.

To most fans though they might as well be. There were people wondering for months if JN was a whole reboot until they let Ash visit Alola and reintroduced his old Pokemon or showcased his accomplishments.

And the less said about the shift from XY/Z to SM the better - those arguing the series should continue to the presentation of XY and keep Serena around are going to erupt.

Jn's allowed Ash to finally use pokemon that he should rightfully be using when he's not under the "Reset" button because he's that skilled.

That's because Journeys is less the "Sword and Shield" anime and more the "Pokemon GO" anime. You know if it stuck exclusively to Sword and Shield Ash would've not gotten Dragonite, Gengar, and Lucario. Especially because they would've had Pikachu take advantage of the Gigantamax form in order to accommodate the whole 'highlight the game's main battling gimmick'

Not so sure about the 'rightfully be using' bit though, guessing that's another "Aura Ash" thing.

JN is a reboot? He was on a world tour and has all those nice trophies shown at the beginning. And let's be real, Ash battling in the World Tournament where the big league champions are fighting is a step up from the usual regional Leagues, which is a logical progression from Alola Champion.

As for Journeys, it still promoted Galar... but had Goh be the advertisement with the Galar starters. Ash could have a Galar starter, but they choose not to. This actually freed up space for Ash to go completely unorthodox since it could have gone with Ash promotes Galar Pokémon while Goh catches everything else.

Plus, Gengar is a fan favorite because everyone was salty that Haunter didn't stay with Ash despite the two being birds of a feather. Lucario is also obvious given how many times Ash seems to have a close relationship to that line. Dragonite is special in we never expected him to get a Dragonite but in hindsight, it's somehow fitting and broadens the scope of what Ash would catch.

What I mean about rightfully using is that Ash getting pokemon like Dragonite, Gengar and Dracovish, it's like how Paul caught Ursuring back in sinnoh, a pokemon several people felt was overkill since they thought he was a rookie until he revealed that he had traveled through the other regions like Ash had done and he was confirmed to be a more experienced trainer therefore Ursuring fit him(and that monster became one of his strongest fighters) with Ash winning the alola league and becoming a champion level trainer, he could only go up from there, and thus was given pokemon who fit someone who's as experienced as Ash should rightfully be when he's not under the thumb of the reset button we had to put up with for 5 regions starting from hoenn.

Sure Riolu and Farfetch'd needed to be raised but with the others pretty much combat ready so it didn't take them long to catch up.

I hope they continue this going forward into S/V if he stays around, regardless of if it's older or new pokemon.

Uh ... why are most of the other threads in anime spoilers locked right now?
Probably waiting for Dephender to translate material from recent magazine releases.

Just let's think for a moment that Ash wins from Leon... Could that influence his next step to become a Pokémon Master and potentially Paldea?

Considering the supposed lore of Paldea, him going there is practically perfect. The problem is what he'll do and what he'll have. Although SV supposedly has multiple endings so that might help.

Honestly I don't see him going to school again or just randomly challenging Champion like Trainers without a particular goal in mind (like defeating Leon).
