I hope she designs the characters for the inevitable Pokémon: Sword and Shield anime.

That's an amazing interview, thank you so much for doing interview with her. Her design for Pokemon is espacially amazing for that film she made, even though i am somewhat inexperienced Pokemon Serbian fan since only fewer Pokemon got broadcasted in Serbia due to lack of interest and the huge popularity of Digimon and Bandai-related games in Serbia (Nintendo is not a household name in Serbia, only Mario few Nintendo IP are popular in Serbia though and appear in Serbian magazine.

I agree with that, Sword and Shield anime is gonna be much better than the Sun and Moon and the previous Pokemon anime, although i am sitll little bit inexperienced Pokemon Serbian fan due to lack of popularity in Serbia.

This was a wonderful interview and I am amaze the person that was interviewed made it this far without much schooling due to finances. I also loved the illustrations that were showcased. My most favorite one was the one feature with Ash (who at first I thought I was seeing a female depiction of Ash until I took a second close look) and his pikachu leaning on a building. It’s certainly a cute illustration that captures his laid back and friendly side to Ash.

How so? Is there anything you are hoping to see in the upcoming anime companion piece to the upcoming Pokémon games?

I think people just really, really don't like the Sun & Moon anime. Can't say I blame them.
Only Pokemon series I dropped. The games look like they're going back to the old formula so hopefully the anime does too.

^ Ah I see. I have seen some people mention they do not care for the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime. I would guess there is a high chance that the next Pokémon anime is going back to the old formula since Galaar is large enough to warrant a return to form.

In the meantime I plan to get back into watching Sun and Moon before Generation 8 starts. I already like the premise from the get go, but I want to see how far it went.

@Aca Vuksa

I think Gen 8 anime will start of Female Protagoinst as having its Scorbunny as Pokemon while Ash stars Sobble as his starter Pokemon, that's what am i thinking. The story would be similiar to that of XY anime, but with two companions though.

Also, the traveling companion that is Gym Leader should be an compuer and scientist addicted guy whose his computer gets ealisy destroyed by Pikachu's electric moves. Also, he could use computer for the use of Scanning Pokemon instead of Ash having PokeDex around.

My wife and I actually think the Sun and Moon anime is the best the series has been in a long time. It is inevitable that Ash is 10 forever, so having the more floaty art style makes him feel more likable and rambunctious. In previous series' he seems more bland in my opinion.

I enjoy seeing the slice of life antics and think the cast has a lot of personality. Alola has a lot of character and the lighter tone is a nice break from the constant gym gauntlet and inevitable loss at the Pokemon league.

I will miss Lana's sharp tongue and one liners when it's over, but am optimistic the new series will be great as well.

Nice design of Smoltoshi and Pikachu. So Kaneko worked on the Monsuto movie. I knew I sense a familiar familiar when I saw Satoshi's design. I'd also like to say that I like revealing outfits.
