That's something we'd all like to know; it makes no sense for him to go to Trainer's School. If this is standard education, then I guess so, but why?

Because repeatedly throwing himself at the league hasn't worked thus far, even with something as powerful as his Greninja?

I mean

Ash has still repeatedly qualified for every league he's traveled to, so that's something.

 

The real reason is to try something different with the anime and shake things up. Any actual reason will be quickly made up in the pilot and we'll have to accept that at face value.

Well, we have that announcement coming tomorrow (or to be technically accurate, in about 4 hours since Japan's more than half a day ahead of us), so we'll probably get some info on this anime. If we do get a reason, hopefully it actually makes sense and at least keep Ash's momentum from this generation. If they pull a BW on us, then I don't know.

 

To be fair, Ash had the potential to win it in this generation and 4th; latter would've probably gotten him a win if he didn't have to deal with Ubers. We don't know how powerful the actual runner-up for Gen 4 was, aside from them getting 6-0 wiped. XY had him "this" close, but the writers decided to make him lose again.

The artstyle has gotten worse, just eww.

 

Good thing we have Generations to last us the rest of the year then.

I'd expect that kind of artwork in a little kid's show, but not this, especially after XY had good art.

 

Sigh, something tells me this is going down the road of BW...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Pokemon Company anime division. Fix this travesty.

 

Anyway, what goes on is Ash is attending Trainer school along with Lillie and the chiefs. We also get a look at Team Skull, which is nice.

Honestly, the new art style is gonna get a bit of getting used to given what we've had the last couple of years. Though I feel that the change in artstyle fits the feel of the region and that it'll probs be well received in Japan. I've also seen a bit of Yokai Watch being mentioned as well.

Jesus that art style. It is not good. I mean, I would be hopeful that it was just the clips they choose to show or the editing but everything looked so weird. Gah!!!!

YEAH! WHY THE FART WOULD THEY DESIGN ASH LIKE THAT?! I don't know, maybe we're all nostalgia blind.

I feel like we're looking at this the wrong way. I reckon Ash's new design will appeal to the current generation of kids (as it should), and I can overlook the trailer being bad for the reason that they're trying to make the show appeal to kids again after how low the ratings for XY was in Japan.

And I don't think its the animation that is the issue. Its just the art style is VERY different from XY. I don't know why, but the first place my brain goes to compare it is pastel colors which feels wrong.

And yea, them changing things to make up for the ratings dropped with XY compared to BW and Yokai Watch does make sense. End of the day, kids are the target audience. While I don't think that is a good argument (I watch both Super Sentai and Kamen Rider which are both shows "for kids" but both often hit more mature story beats) trying to recapture that demographic this way DOES make sense.

We'll the rest of the anime looks fine except for Ash, i know why the they did this, but its not what the anime is about. Ash's design, is horrible that, they gave a completely different design to Ash, and then kept the rest normal... I liked bad-ass Ash's design, it was fine, why Pokemon, why... I hope that his face matures as the series goes on.

Like Flame and British mentioned, they're trying to make Pokemon appeal more to the new generation of kids watching it, and probably less on the 20-something year olds like us (well, Flame, British and me; Astro and some others are over this limit, but you get it) who've been around since the start and appreciate the more shonen feel that XY has taken (especially now).

 

I don't necessarily agree either with the decision to turn off the older generation who watches this show in favor of making it appeal to younger viewers, but they're the ones making the anime, not me. Looking at it again, the art style isn't exactly that bad, but it's going to take some getting used to. Plot might be good though, despite the departure from more "mature" depictions of Ash and co.

I'm quoting this again because in a sense you're right. New previews for SM show Ash travelling to Alola with Delia and Mimey (Remember Ash first went to Unova witth Delia and Oak)

I kind of forgot since it's been over 5 years since I saw the beginning of Black & White, but yeah, let's hope Sun & Moon is decent enough if it is going to be a "reset" of sorts to cater to the newer generation of kids. Haven't watched the trailers yet b/c it's late (despite not having classes until the afternoon).
