To be fair, how exactly would you translate gaining EXP into an anime format?

Pikachu is gonna get his ass kicked by non evolved beginner Pokémon again.

Something I loved about Paul was even if Elekid was newer and unevolved, Paul turned out to have experience. His shot at Cynthia is always an early DP highlight to me.

And also the first tie match introduced the anime was going to be paying a little more attention to move effects and types. Slightly.

If it did, then it’d be an early installment weirdness because the anime clearly doesn’t care all too much about that stuff anymore, lol.

Showing Ash as both competent but not overwhelmingly ahead of local beginners is tricky - is there any region that you think has done it better than others?

(Of course if he actually wins this League, that might change how he's presented a bit.)

If they screwed him over in X/Y, then there isn’t much hope for him, lol.

If you mean the League, I wouldn't call a very close loss in the final "screwing over" - rather, a sign that next time could well be it. Remember when he was lucky to make the six-on-six rounds?

As stupid as the "Pikachu lost to a Snivy" bit was, at least Pikachu had a good chunk of it's juice zapped out by Zekrom. It doesn't excuse the fact that battle experience lost to a newbie but it does cover up some of the problems.

I think that the reference is to the Unova League - the only one where he want backwards, and to an unworthy opponent at that. That precedent is why I'm not saying he will win Alola - but if he doesn't, then I'm almost completely certain that he'll win Galar.

Kalos primarily, Sinnoh a bit compared to most, especialy as battle trainer vs Coordinators.

The same as every series before Sun and Moon. Ash travels all over the new region going to the Gyms, Team Rocket cause issues. Same song different region.
In all fairness, I wouldn't mind that formula again, if they returned to the tone of X/Y. At least it did a decent job with it, overall.

Why? So we can get 10 million episodes of filler?

Make it more like DP and don't do the "hero of destiny crap" like with Ash-Greninja and you'll have me. (I prefer DP over XY, I admit)

I'm fine with either the tone of DP or XY for Sword and Shield.

Ehhhhhh.... Either way, it’ll be a bunch of filler since it’s still a Pokémon series.

Well, that's also it's strength - it's all those episodes which build the Pokemon world.
