Pokemon's newest episode of their latest season hasn't just given us a better idea of what Ash Ketchum's future entails, but also gives us a better look into his past. With Ash's pre-trainer days being explored, we get more thorough insight into both his life and that of the pre-evolved Pikachu, living his days in the wild as the smaller version of itself: Pichu. With the episode ending with viewers returning to the present, revisiting the initial meeting between Pikachu and Ash, the future seems bright as Ketchum begins his journey as a Pokemon League Champion!
Now, with the first episode "in the bag", fans are letting their thoughts known about the opening installment of the new Pocket Monster anime series! Did fans accept the brand new adventures of Ash and his friend Gou or do they miss the days of Sun and Moon? Judge for yourselves!

The animation, the art, and the premise are all awesome!
Definitely gonna be one of the best seasons.
I just hope it doesn't focus on Scorbunny like how they did in X/Y and SM with Greninja and Incineroar
Can we talk about of how good is this opening of the new Pokemon anime?
The song was made by After the Rain (Soraru×Mafumafu), and I love the visuals and the song.
