    To be honest, I don't really like the new look for Ash. It just takes away the feeling of Ash and It feels like they made a whole new character. I personally don't like this.
    But, I respect all opinions so...
    What do you think?

      I love it.

      I won't lie and say I've always liked it, I was taken back when I first saw it.

      But seeing him in SM gives me the impression there's so much more to him than a stoic expression that's always on model. He's more energetic and the roundness/soft lines give him more depth/freedom to express himself. He feels like a real person.

        It's taking getting used to seeing his current design but I don't think it looks as bad as I thought it did originally.

            I didn't like the quality at first but after I watched two episodes my thoughts changed. Quality is fine but we find it strange because for 20 years we have seen pokemon in a different way

              Well, he looks okay, but I don't like his slapstick.

              The outfit isn't that bad (it's basically a slight recolour of Sun's default outfit) but I feel his face didn't deserve to be so downgraded in quality. It's the new face design that ruined him for me here.

                Its great, more expressive childlike, yet can still look cool in the intense moments.

                  When I first saw Alolan Ash, I was like 'wha? They overhauled the art style?", but then his new look kind of grew on me and reminded me of Steven from Steven Universe.

                  Didn't really see such a art style makeover coming. But then again, the anime had been tired and dated for quite a long time.

                  It definitely gives off different vibes compared to, say, DP Ash where he both looked and acted like a mature, experienced trainer, but I still love his SM design. It's unique and quirky. Like Mii-kun, it reminds me of western cartoons that I enjoy so it almost doesn't feel like I'm watching an anime at times.

                  So yes, he is cute!!

                  Ash looks great in the new anime. Very expressive, and for once, looks his age. He hasn't since Kanto, imo, so that's a good step.

                  This. I don't like the focus on slapstick and slice-of-life situations in this saga, because it feels like they are trying to compete with and copy Yo-Kai Watch. Ash's Alola design also reminds me a lot of Nate from YKW.

                  I feel the new Ash design makes us feel that he's not adventurous anymore and that's what makes me cringe.

                    Looks like everyone says Ash's new art positive, But it is true no one will say any nice thing when they didn't watch the anime.

                    I am really surprised to read this, I thought everybody hates it lol
                    I want to watch the anime soon, for me it isn't the same old Ash but I am willing to try. I'll just imagine it like it's an all new character lol.

                    Can't talk much since I haven't watched it yet, but I agree Lilly look kinda weird?

                      The only character designs I don't like in Sun and Moon are Jessie and James'. I can't stand how they look now.

                      That reminds me, Ash's new outfit is exactly the same as the male protagonist of the Sun & Moon games (he has no canon name but he's commonly nicknamed Sun or Elio by fans) with the only difference being the blue and white inverted on Ash's shirt, along with Ash's hat being red.

                      Personally, the first time I saw Ash's new Alolan look in the poster, I'm not quite fond of it. However, it seems to grow on me after I watch Sun and Moon anime most of the time, except for some slapstick moments in particular.

                        At first I didn't like it but I'm starting to get used to it now.

                        ^ pretty much the same. At first I really wasn't a fan and thought it was oversimplified and way too different, but I very quickly grew to like it and thought it represented the fun and casual series really well.

                            To me, it didn't matter much. I mean, Ash aging backwards was definitely a downfall, but it's okay. At some point, it's okay for people to experiment something new.
                            Edit : You gotta check out the reactions of Japanese people on this.
                            They sure are funny as hell!

                            I remember that awful poster as well, but I guess my initial bad reaction to SM Ash was the way his face was expressed when doing the Electric Z-Move pose. Still, I have a sour feeling towards his face because of how weird he looks with the new art style, yet other characters seem to look better than him.
