Would you prefer if Pokemon (new series or whatever) focused on Galar instead?

    Well, for now I hope - current season will be separate saga, and each next season of Gen 8 will be made in own style. And next season will be in Galar, with more detailed art style, serious tone and cool Ash.

    What I think would work best is half the season Ash and Go travel to all of the regions to help the Professors with their research and during an assignment in Galar, Ash has to battle a Dynamaxed Pokemon that has gone on a rampage and Leon sees Ash battling it. Afterwards Leon compliments Ash on his battling skills and suggests that he take part in the Galar League. So from there we have a Gym Challenge saga where Ash is given dates of when the matches will be and thus he can still help Go complete tasks for the Professors without missing the Galar League. The version exclusive Gym Leaders could be either one with the other two facing Ash during the finals. My personal version exclusive Gyms I want Ash to challenge before the Finals are Allaster and Melony.

    Tbh I think the gym challenge will be as randomly placed like the island trials were in SM. I highly doubt Ash will be traveling much in Galar except for the gym battles.

    The Galar Gyms being handled more like the island trials would probably be best since it doesn't seem like Satoshi will be traveling through Galar in linear fashion, so he likely won't visit each of the cities where the Gyms are located in the games and might instead visit them in anime-exclusive locations.

    I definitely would've preferred her as the female cast member instead of Koharu. I think that anime-exclusive characters can sometimes be interesting, but I'd much rather have seen Sonia be heavily involved in the new saga since she would have direct ties to Galar.

    I think Sonia could've been a main character for sure as the new professor's helper but not as a cast member like Go or Koharu since she looks way too old for that. ;)

    Damn right I would want the new series to focus mainly on Galar! I'm happy that they're still shaking things up from the old travel formula, but Galar still should've been the main setting.

    The fact that the anime is going in the direction it is now further convinces me that the franchise as a whole doesn't care much for this generation. And especially this amazing region.

    Sonia could have been de-aged a bit in the anime. I remember suggesting this when everyone was speculating on who would be Satoshi's female traveling companion prior to the reveal of Koharu. Watching a whole saga of Satoshi traveling with Sonia and Yarrow would have been my ideal scenario for the Galar region.

    Imo the things that would matter for a Galar series would be:

    Gym Challenges
    Game Characters and Rivals
    Key Locations
    Ash catching Galar mon

    However it's possible to have all of this in the new series already, the writers just need to try enough

    The only thing missing would be a game companion, but I'm fine with Ash and Gou

    For me the idea of Galar not being the central focus is easier to swallow when you realize this idea could have happened at any point in the franchise. If not Gen 8 then possibly Gen 9. If not Gen 9 then possibly Gen 10 and so on.

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    at this point if they do decide to do the galar gyms hopefully they'll do a battle frontier like style where some of the gyms are located in different regions (this would add credence to Ash traveling the world) but of course you have to be endorsed to enter them and find them.

    now I know this isn't fair to the galar region itself, but considering the anime's not giving it prime focus as things stand, I don't see that as an issue.

    Honestly I prefer the idea of region hopping as a more permanent fixture. A more episodic feel for the show would probably breathe new life into the show
  15. I don't think I would. Galar is already bland in the games in my opinion and the anime won't change that.

    Judging by most of the reactions here and on other Pokemon forums that I've seen, the region hopping idea has only angered people that wanted the series to return to a standard traveling formula in a single region like we had from OS to XY. But I think most people could've settled for the region hopping idea without criticism if the writers actually bothered to bring up previous events or show old characters when Satoshi visits the other regions.

    I'm good with what we have right now. I like the island hopping idea that's being implemented and my only complaint is that the cast is only made up of two guys.

    Voted yes for Galar, because the writers are not making a lot of effort with this new concept they introduced.

    More so now than ever. Galar has SO much more content to showcase than most of the regions, yet we'll probably get bare minimal coverage if any on most of it.... like Po Town in SM.

    They aren't covering the region hopping aspect well at all

    I don't mind Satoshi and Gou being the only main protagonists, I just hope that we're given more recurring villains in the new series than just the Rocket-dan trio since even they don't appear that often and of course they can hardly be considered threats in the first place.
