The boy looks meh. He better not be another Hop, Hau or Goh.
Maybe its too early to assume, but is this proof that we won’t have many of the characters from the game aside from gym leaders? Its been a while since I’ve watched the show (haven’t been interested since the Hoenn Region, yeah its been a while). Is it normal for the characters from the game to be absent from the anime? I was actually going to watch this season on Netflix if it had characters like Penny, Nemona, Arven, Clavell, and professors Sada and Turo. But without their inclusion I won’t have interest in this season either. I wanted to see these characters be a bit more fleshed out. Some of them had interesting stories like Penny’s involvement with Team Star for example, and it would have been fun to see them interacting with the new main characters in the anime.
I don’t think you should give up they will be there, after all the main protagonist Pokemon are the main 3 starters from violet and scarlet, and their going to school.
