Ash visits the Alola region not just with Pikachu, but with family! Watch the trailer here.

I saw bits of the trailer, and while some of the new Pokemon look good, Ash unfortunately doesn't. It's like the XY art team got replaced by a new art team entirely and they have surely proven their amateur art style is making this series already ugly to look at.

Sun & Moon will need to do a lot if I want any chance of considering to watch it, since this generation is already proving to be the "new" 5th Gen due to me loving the games but hating the anime for the respective region saga.

I think the new anime style is easier to be recognized in similarity to styles in animes for children. It is almost storybook style. They need to connect with a new generation. As long as there is plenty of Litten and not making Ash be an annoyiong adolescent in school like Naruto.. It could become good
Yeah that's one thing maybe because XY and Z had like a serious tone they wanted to make it more child friendly again but that is just too much. Ash looks like turned 8 or less than that.

I also feel the new art style heavily resembles Yo-Kai Watch, a series that is known for being Pokemon's main threat in Japan and has probably been inspiring some stuff we've seen for Sun & Moon, both game and anime-wise. Ash going to a school setting is a notable shoutout to how Yo-Kai Watch's protagonist Nate is in school as well.

Pokedex Rotom also has inspiration from Whisper, who is Nate's companion and serves a guide role with him like what Pokedex Rotom seems to be shown to do. Even the Z-Move animation sequences are similar to when the Yo-Kai use their unique attacks in the Yo-Kai Watch games.

Yeah it really looks like they are scared that a new anime that has like 3-2 years is being a threat to them. Like do they think that because that is so loved now that it would look cool in their Pokemon anime.... >.<

Does anyone noticed, that the new trailer and information we get so far from the new SM series, there are almost close to none mentioning and showing of the main feature of Pokemon series: BATTLE?

Only the very first 30s trailer we get at the end of TF arc climax battle episode, where there shown Pikachu using Quick Attack or some other attack, and the scene of Ash using Z-ring and order Pikachu using Z-move. But other than these two scenes, there were absolutely no mentioning about possible battles and challenges in the upcoming saga, all it focused was the daily life between Alolan natives and pokemons, there was absolutely no tension nor excitement, just a carefree and relaxing atmosphere.
If you can search back the trailers of the past series, they were never being that heavy on the non-battle aspect of the Pokemon World.

I understand that Pokemon Anime trying to go to a complete different direction in SM saga, but still I have doubt will I like this series or not. Because firstly in the past I always watch Pokemon Anime for the cool actions within many important events, I didn't watch it for daily life slapstick comedy. Secondly I didn't like time wasting fillers, so if the whole SM series have that pointless "filler" feelings for the entire series, I'm out.

I don't think it's amateur. It's just a different style. Like how Wind Waker looks very simple but is actually very complex.

Remember, this is actually for kids. So the new childish-looking animation actually might appeal to them more.

You do have a point. I'm mostly concerned that it will be too kid-friendly and that will make it unappealing to watch.

Since Team Rocket was shown in the promotional poster I would assume there would be battles with them to stop whatever the scheme is at least unless they're going to have some new role. Since there's no gyms though, it does look like battling is going to be a less of an aspect than we're used to.

To be honest, I missed when Ash used to be klutzy and childish like he was in the original series. I thought he was far too mature for his age in XY, so I'm glad to see that he might act the same way he used to. I just hope that he won't be a noob again like in the beginning of BW.

Well I feel like that is how this new season is going to feel.
