The anime will have officially jumped the shark once the producers finally cave and Ash gets an Eevee(lution) or Lucario.
Lucario sure, but eevee is potentially something entirely new. As much as I appreciated Sylveons dance career it still felt weird to see such a strong battle Pokemon be used in a way that didn't even exist in the games.

Apparently there's a bunch of Eevee merch that seems connected to the anime so maybe Ash will get one...

oof...
Yea that's one of the strengths of using a recurring character who continues travelling around. I still miss my sister who moved to the other side of the world.

Man, the Alolan people were so precious. Kukui and Burnet is honestly more like a real famity Satoshi ever had. Even for team Rocket too. Kiterukuma really care for them. More like their boss ever did. It hurts so much to say goodbye to them. Sun Moon truly is the best season Pokemon ever had. So fun and comfy.

I've been watching an abridged version of Pokemon because I actually want to watch all of XY and Sun and Moon and trying to do all of it would be too damn much. I have Diamond and Pearl, and Best Wishes left. Any essential episodes from those I should watch? Because otherwise I'm probably going to mainly just watch the introductions and skip a whole lot of it lol

The press release clarifies that the special will be summarizing Ash and Pikachu's encounters so far with a "special video" (i.e. a clip show) in addition to the info on the new series. Marie Iitoyo will be voicing Kangaskhan's baby in the first episode of the series, who "holds the key" to the first episode.
Pictures from the first episode of the new season.

So in today's episode, Olivia mentioned to Kiawe and Ash about how there's a lot more to see in the world beyond Alola and it got Ash thinking and deciding to return home for a new start.

Setting the seeds for the new series right there

Let's end this reboot nonsense

Man this really makes me wish Kiawe and Ash would travel together in the next series. Damn that would be a fun dynamic.

Also nice to see good boy pulling it out at the end. Too bad no incineroar. Here to hoping Ash uses old Pokémon in the next series. I want to see the big cat fight!

I've started watching the Sun & Moon anime due to champion hype and I'm really loving it. The comedic timing is excellent and it's such a different and fun vibe. I'm early on but I dig the cast so far. I like Rowlet's goofiness and Rotom Dex is basically "WELL ACTUALLY---" come to life. The Bewear terrifies the hell out of me though.

I was also not ready for the Litten episodes. Episode 21 was really sad lmao. That said, I wish Netflix had the Japanese audio. I like the dub but they tend to change the BGM time to time.

Just give me a Dawn cameo in this saga and we’ll be fine.
That’s assuming we’ll also see all the people from Sun and Moon too.

I felt so sad when i saw the next episode preview. :(

I hope the next show carries the spirit of this season, it was too good.

This is a huge assumption but i think we're gonna see all of Ash's friends again in the new season. The setup lends itself very well to a large cast.

That’s the only thing that will soften the blow of having to say goodbye to the Alola cast

So the fate of the cast...

Soph is heading to Mossdeep Space Center, Kiawe wants to become an Island Kahuna, Mallow wants to make a people and Pokemon restaurant, and Lana is going to find a Manaphy.

I hope by the time Ash returns to Alola. Kiawe and him can have a full on battle. Not this 1v1 crap.

And I hope they do a title defense battle when he comes back.

Looking forward to the new protag, rather have a protag interested in trying to catch them all. If Ash takes a back seat I will definitively try to keep up with watching this.

Litten is so cute bro 😩 He's like a real cat. What a hero.

I'm honestly impressed at the production of Sun & Moon. 30 episodes in and each episode has looked amazing. Lovely animation, gorgeous backgrounds, and pretty solid writing. How'd they pull this off for 100+ episodes???

All previous companions should show up. A show taking place in all regions leaving co-protagonist from these regions behind would idiotic.
Very true. It would be amazing if everyone from the older anime generations showed up! I would love it if they bring back pokemon contests as side episodes for when they get to Sinnoh.

First trailer

Still not buying it being a reboot. We have the first title

Episode 1: Pikachu Is Born
In a forest somewhere in Kanto, there once was a lonely Pichu. This Pichu, who was still very young, had a certain encounter and farewell. This all took place shortly before Satoshi and his partner Pikachu started their journey. This is the story of how everything began.
