Just a reminder, do not fall for leaks, posts, etc. for the next ~48 hours or so.

April Fools is a massive time of year for fake leaks in Pokemon Season. Unless it comes from an official Pokemon channel take everything with a grain of salt.
It can be entertaining to see what stuff comes up though.

Really all I expect today are a bunch of "ZEEZ ARE ZHE NEW EEBUII FORMZ!" and some super-professional fan-art that looks nothing like Sugimori's.

Suddenly I think I'm regretting the reveal of the starters prior to today.

I would like to see more Mega Evolutions. Even “leaks.”

Sooooo not sure how many people follow the Pokemon Youtube scene, but there's a bit of a scandal going on, as three well known Poketubers (KingNappy, Dekadurr, and MudkipMama) have been exposed for having inappropriate conversations with underage fans. "Innapropriate" is actually putting things mildly, a lot of the stuff they said is just fucking disgusting. Even if said fans hadn't been underage.


(There are links to get a better understanding of what went down in the description)

Agreed. Filler is what MAKES the anime.

How else would we get a story centered on every Pokémon ever except Porygon?
Fair point, although in that case, I’d say the dub did itself a colossal disservice by having the narrator and characters almost always bring up the next gym or other objective.

If they had rewritten the some of the narration/dialogue to put more emphasis on the exploring and adventuring, and not start every episode with;

“Hey look! It’s Ash and his replaceable friends wandering through AREA, just outside of NEW TOWN where he can battle PERSON in exchange for the BADGE! (Mind you, when we say “just outside” we mean he’ll get there in 4 episodes from now.)”

And end with;

“We had fun today but Ash is super close to NEW TOWN and then he’ll just need X more until he can battle in the TOURNAMENT! Adventure and stuff!”

There’s nothing wrong with the adventure meandering, I’m totally down with that. But I think you’re doing yourselves and your viewers a disservice if you imply the point is one thing, by the show clearly has different priorities.

That was just exposition to explain why the characters were doing anything. The kids weren't just wandering around waiting for stuff to happen, they had an objective and life kept getting in the way.

It's just a reminder of where in the progress chart an episode lies, which is especially valuable for a show with like 1000 episodes.

I'm reading this in the style of the commentary of Smackdown: Just Bring It

I actually liked in Hoenn that the title card literally shows a map of where Ash was on the journey and thus allows for an easier way to keep up with where he is without the need for the narrator; probably makes it easier to keep track of episode order too.

While I understand the divisive response to her design even though she was redesigned after her original design was controversial to the point that episodes featuring said design are now banned though one did get an edit to include her current design, I have no problem with Jynx and find her current design an improvement over her original look.

New ep title is pretty funny:

SM ep 120: Lana hooks a Kyorge!?!


The writers are just going crazy with legendaries now in SM.

I also highly suspect Lana is a fan favorite of the anime writers, she definitely feels like the "dark horse" of this series.

Well given how relatively easy it is to get a slew of them through the wormholes in the ultra games, maybe this is their way of reflecting that in the anime, by throwing a bunch in hehe. I mean, clearly not, but yeah.

What's the expected date for more news on Sword and Shield?

I think my memory is failing me, because I feel like in the past after an announcement of new games there's a fairly consistent schedule of new updates, but here I feel like there hasn't been anything since the initial trailer over a month ago.

Article is dated yesterday, so no. He's actually one of the Japanese dub VAs, so we already knew he was involved with this - just not that he'd show up in the English version!

Anyone else want versions of the pokemon seen in the GS demo to show up in Gen 8?

They are constantly reworking them in some facets (see how long it took until we got the Popplio proxy) so anything's possible...but these days they rather just find new gimmicks instead of new evolutions outside Eevee.
