I don't really like or dislike the new look but I do like the character movement in the trailer, I imagine this new design might be easier to animate or something.

Not that it matters since the last time I saw a full episode was when it was on WB and they were in Johto. I kind of wish Johto had ended Ash's story and each subsequent series had a new protagonist.

I don't understand. What makes you think SM is going to be less nothing than XY? XY had a lot going on, compared to other sagas. Why recommend any Pokémon series at all if XY is your definition of literally nothing?

>>147533149
Wasn't this just a gag short after the regular episode?

So why watch SM? If the only thing that matters is the season "meaning something" then why watch any Pokémon at all? If XY didn't turn things around SM sure won't.

Why can't they do another Berserk anime instead?

Best Wishes ratings were dropping and XY's just continued dropping even further. They clearly want to differentiate the show from previous seasons (even though they're too stuck on the status quo to actually change protagonists).

The art style wouldn't stand out that much if it weren't for the Ash redesign.

Togedemaru is a weird localizing decision to me. Seems cumbersome for an English speaker to say. Names like Nyabby and Iwanko seem easier, but they got localized.

The reason why it's bombing huge and is on the way to irrelevancy is because of their slavish adherence to the status quo.

Ash should have won and ash should become a pokemon master who wants to not just win leagues but find and discover new pokemon. Become a pokemon hero or whatever.

That would have been a far more interesting path for him.

Hell had this be his last real adventure before he does something else and have a new adventure be about his chad with special guest apperances by chad's baby sister and her pichu.

Not saying I agree with it, just saying that's how it is.

It's funny actually, I honestly think SM would've been treated more warmly if Ash won and actually did shit during the Flare arc.
I'm convinced the writers just want to fuck with everyone at this point, and whatever if anything interesting they have planned for SM is going to end up going nowhere like always.
>>
>>147537805
Nah, it'd be the same exactly because Pikachu is Pikachu. Going with Pikaclones like here would be a mistake, but always keeping a Pikachu as part of the main cast would be easy. It could also be an early capture sometimes rather than an outright starter. Or maybe a Pokemon that just "travels" alongside the heroes for a while before officially being caught by a Pokeball. There would be many different ways to handle it for each season.

>>147556112
What happened was basically that Konami wanted to keep the card game running after the manga ended since it was so popular, and they wanted an anime on the air to promote it, so since there wasn't any more manga to adapt, they commissioned their own series. Either they weren't allowed to do a direct continuation of the manga with the same characters, or they figured it would be better to just start from scratch to make everything more card game centric, but it's a very unique situation you can't really compare with any other franchise.

That's a misreport. YW2 sold more in 2015 than ORAS sold in 2015, and that happened because YW2 came out in the summer and ORAS near the end of the year.
ORAS' sales surpassed YW2's sales in early 2016.
