predictions of the future Scarlet and Violet anime

Go, my Steady! Mega Shinka!!!
I like with the Aether family they wanted to take a less controversial route that wouldn't upset the conservative parents watching.

Arven is at least around the same age as Brock and has basically been living on his own with just him and his old dog.

Trying to pull that Kumbaya ending with him would not only undermine his entire story, but what also hand wave a lot of stuff that is revealed during the end game Imo
Execution? Eh. Actual story? Genius. A lot of people associate bad parenting with abuse wether it be verbal or physical but neglecting your child’s feelings is an awful thing too. Adding onto the dynamics that often time people think that showering your children with money or that money solves all issues was a good point. She practically lives by herself raised by a butler because her mother is busy with work.

Lillie had a good situation money wise but emotionally she was neglected, so much so that her own mother didn’t even know she was struggling with PTSD.

I hope the SV anime does not feature Ash at all. He should retire because he’s world champion and therefore he’s a Pokemon master. He accomplished his dream. SV should focus on a brand new hero instead. An original character, not somebody from the games although having SV focus on Nemona would be intriguing. Have it focus on her journey to become the best trainer in Paldea. Chronicle the ups & downs she will face.

Watch them do exactly what they did with BW and almost completely ignore the game’s story and do a reset on Ash. Can you imagine the chaos? I’d say they wouldn’t do this but with everything else that’s happened I frankly can’t even make serious predictions at this point.

(Real talk I’d be okay with Nemona replacing Ash given her personality is similar to his anyways)
This time they can't completely reset Ash.

At BW, Ash didn't have any success. Seeing the semi-finals in Sinnoh is no guarantee of winning at Unova. The main problem with Unova was not Ash's reset, but his pokemon not evolving. Otherwise, he would have lost again.

This time, Ash's status is very different. Ash is a champion or even a master.

This time, they can get Ash back. Ash can lose in the final. or in the semi-finals. But Ash will lose a champion this tim

Pokemon needs to stop shoehorning themselves for five year olds. They need to go back to shonen like they did in XYZ. SM ruined the anime
I think you mean ‘battle shounen’, that’s the word we use to define that genre.

Contrary to what retards think around here, changing the demographic to shounen has more positives than negatives because it allows for more dynamic and intricate storytelling.

But what positives does changing the demographic have on marketing and separating parents from their money selling merch?

Because I think that matters more to TPC and the others than dynamic and intricate storytelling. That’s reserved for the direct-to-YouTube shorts…

I mean if money is all you care about then no change is a positive change. I’m talking from a narrative pov.

Hiring the right writers, you can tell complex stories without taking the shonen route. Disney usually does. Digimon did it. Even the games do that. Yeah, for us as grown-ups it would be nice to see our favorite characters as grown-ups dealing with adult issues, but after seeing what resulted after anipoke bringing shonenish cliches, I prefer it to continue being accesible to everyone.

The last time Pokemon went full shonen, they got so ashamed they suppressed all mentions of ReBurst

Bruh anyways, if we can't get the core four fully in the series because they're being lame then I'd take Penny above Nemona and Arven since she was the most "interesting rival" and I love a good jack*** character. Her being the leader of an evil team means they'll have no choice but to make a prominent female battler

They're never going to change the targeted audience age regardless so this discussion is pointless Lol.
They might eventually have to because appealing solely to children is a bad move in a country where the birth rates have been plummeting for decades. There just aren't that many kids in Japan.

I always thought the anime was kodomomuke and nowhere near shonen
You'd be right. The Pokemon Adventures manga is a kodomo and it's generally more serious and darker than the regular anime so if that's an all ages demographic, the anime definitely is. And honestly, I don't think Pokemon ever needs to aim at teenagers. They can have better writing but the 'all ages' demographic has never been a problem. Even if SV was adapted completely faithfully, it'd be a kodomo. Good writing =/= aimed at grown ups

A better reason for them to change the target audience is because there are enough of us older fans continuing to support the franchise where, without us, Pokemon would slowly die.
Difference is that when you make something kids can watch, you have older folks also watching. Looking at the people here who only complain but still watch it. TPC doesn't give af that they complain if they still watch. The other option would be to aim at older audiences but leave kids behind. Seems to be a worse business decision in everyway
