‘Pocket Monsters’ Anime Poster Shows Ash, New Character, Multiple Regions

An alleged poster and character sheet for the 2019 Pocket Monsters anime has leaked on Japanese image boards.

It reveals that Ash and Pikachu will return to the new Pokemon anime following some nervous doubt from fans. A new character with a Scorbunny will seemingly travel alongside Ash. Both of them are holding the new Rotom phones from Sword and Shield.

The poster shows every Pokemon region and their landmark locations, following earlier news that the new anime would feature every region. The locations include Johto’s Bell Tower, Hoenn’s Mt. Chimney, Sinnoh’s Mt. Coronet, Unova’s Skyarrow Bridge, and Kalos’s Prism Tower.

Official information should be revealed on Sunday. Stay tuned!

    What about a female companion though? I think that's the reason people watch the anime.

    Also, does Ash look even younger to anyone, or is that just me?

    If this is their send-off for Ash, I’m all for it! Gotta go out with a bang.

    I'm getting new Bakugan vibes as far as art style and I don't like it. SM went far enough. Like the new kid tho.

    I honestly thought they would improve Ash’s artwork but he still looks quite similar to his S&M design... except with bug eyes. I’ll hold judgement until I see the full artstyle in motion, but I do also hope they improve the overall direction of the anime. Wasn’t a huge fan of S&M, personally.

    Glad they’re incorporating the other regions, too.

    Honestly, Ash design looks way better than Sun & Moon design.

    For the most part, I agree but just from looking at his design it looks way better than Sun & Moon. Also since you mentioned bug eyes, his hairstyle also looks a bit more back to XY series.

    I think his artwork is a lot better than his Sun and Moon variant, at least. I think we're about all ready for an anime reboot without Ash, but I'm down for it if this is how they send him off.
    (if only we knew if that was to be the case)

    He looks like a 4 year old in a bad Ash cosplay for Halloween. They are lying, this is not Ash.

    Ash looks five, not ten.
    Also, I don't get the hate of SM Ash. It fit the more laidback style of the show.

    Ash looks like he's 8 now.

    Did being surrounded by kids in Alola made him suck up even more youth than before?

    Understandable, I made a mistake at first glance to. Then I saw the higher quality image and it shows a very female looking face (anime eye lashes, smoother face, her hair has pink berets)

    She's just a tomboy

    Laid back? Everyone is constantly turned up to 11 about everything! Really the only think I dislike about it (well, that and Lillie's English dub voice). Do they have to be so "Super Psyched!" about everything that happens to them ever?
