    This was the big announcement on Pokenchi. Not much in the way of details, but we'll probably get some soon.

    Get hype.

    So we dont know which episode the animation will be used? Hopefully it's for something epic like Guzzlord's invasion

    All we know is that it's an SM episode, so there's not that many to pick between.

    Wow, that's amazing. I remember some time ago Fumiko Takekuma (Sophocles' voice actress) drew stuff from the anime, and even drew herself with her USUM team. Her artwork is better than most of what I see on Pixiv.

    It never creases to amaze me that Japanese actors and actresses would have such incredible artistic skill. It almost feels like the old stereotype of ever Chinese person knowing Kung Fu.

    There are five possibilites at the moment:
    1-Alola League Finals
    2-Guzzlord invasion
    3-Ash or Gladion(?) vs Masked Royal
    4-Mohn or Shaymin
    5-Any farewell episode

  8. Or maybe something related to Magearna specifically!

    She is a voice actress, tv host, illustrator and singer who has done several things for the Pokémon franchise, like presenting Pokémon Sunday/Smash/Other Pokémon tv shows, voice acting in multiple Pokémon movies, singing Serena's ending (DoriDori) and etc.

    Overall, she is quite the important person in Pokémon History, she even was the one to announce Generation 5 starters.

    Anyway, here is some of her art for people who didn't know she is an illustrator aswell:

    (she is the japanese VA for rapunzel btw)

    (she once told the Jojo creator that she would like for Jotaro to spit on her lmao)

    (she is a huge Serena fan aswell, she cosplayed as her and drew her multiple times)

    (this one is more recent, it's her version of Sirfetch'd)

    There are a lot of other good drawings on her twitter.

    I believe she will do well.

    Next episode of Pokénchi will be focusing on this subject:
    So chances are the episode she'll be working on is SM144

    Given its the finale of Ash vs. Kukui I hope it looks nice

    The episode Shoko will be working on is "the final episode of Sun & Moon". They didn't outright say it was SM146, but they mentioned Yamazaki being the animation director of that episode, so it's pretty much guaranteed to be that one.
    She'll be animating a scene where "Lilie makes an important decision".
    They also showed a picture of the storyboard for the scene, and it looks like Magearna is up and moving.

    Poor Finally Mohn
    I think this is for the special, not the farewell episode

    Yamazaki is in charge of 146,and she was supervising and correcting shokotan's work, so it's most likely 146

    They also very specifically said it was "the final episode of Sun & Moon".

    Lillie finally gets it up and running so they can go look for Mohn alongside Naganadel because Mohn is lost somewhere in Ultra Space

    And we're not going to see any of it

    There is the possibility of a special in the week before the new series focusing on saving Mohn

    Unless he randomly shows up in either 145 or 146
