    Default D/P Girl...replacing...

    Well, on the scan for D/P this morning their is a anime logo that show the D/P girl on it.

    Could she be replacing May (or perhaps it's May in a new outfit), Brock, Max, or possibly Ash?

    The magazine suggests the possibility that she will be the main character.

    Considering it's unlikely that Ash will be going any time soon, I'd say that weighs heavily on the possibilty of May going.

    I'm already seeing a LOT of direct paralells from D/P to R/S, almost following the template in R/S to the letter. I have a nasty feeling we're simply going to get a replay of the start of Hoenn only with this chick being in place of May. :/

    After the good run in Battle Frontier, i'll be disappointed if the anime writers drop all the way down to doing something as poor as that.

    I don't think so, this girl looks way more confident then May was.

    I'd say it depends on if we get anything other then Gyms and Contests that determines who leaves...I mean, we could have a group of five.

    Gyms are obviously going to stay. They're the main staple of the games and if the current knowledge of D/P is anything to go by, they certainly aren't planning on innovating the template they made in R/S by replacing them with something else.

    Being the hero and having the star of the entire Pokemon franchise living on his shoulder, Ash will not be leaving. It would be a marketing disaster for a show that exists to sell the Pokemon franchise - not to be all smart, arty or full of insightful character depth.

    I'd consider it to be awfully crowded if she were to have her own side-quest alongside Ash and May, and it'd just get downright silly when it came to the end of the region - we'd spend half the year just getting through the various quest conclusions!

    Personally though, I'd have rather they'd simply kept the current cast (though dropping Max, of course) and headed out to Shino. Though I can't disagree that a shakeup to make it slightly more fresh would be nice.

    It doesn't look like we're likely to get any actual information on the new series until next month though, so I can pretty much imagine the next month is going to be nothing but arguments and flames from certain people getting all fanboy/girl about the prospect of their favourite character going.

    Oh joy.

    I'll be really surprised if May gets replaced. I always thought her getting Munchlax guaranteed she'd be around for Shinou.

    Then again, Munchlax got a ton of screentime in Kanto, so maybe it was supposed to be more of a pre-D/P taster. And May did just beat Drew, so arguably they could be trying to resolve her arc...

    But no, I still think she's likely to stick around. Too popular. Perhaps they're going to shake things up and have two girls in the group. :D Or maybe D/P girl will be a recurring rival for Ash - that'd be cool.

    Tracey had Marill but didn't go to Johto. Something tells me May's future will become crystal clear in the rivals forever episode.

    I feel like Poomo tonight.

    Hmmmm, well, what about Ash getting Aipom? I think that means they are planning on him staying and brining it to the next region.

    That poster does make it seem like D/P girl is the star of something. Why wasn't Ash shown with her?

    Is she getting her own series?

    Well, it seems this will be replacing Advanced Generation, however, it's a early poster, and who knows if she will even actually be in the show much!

    If they were going to make a spin-off series, there is no doubt that it would be for Pokemon Ranger.

    It doesn't appear that they are, so I'd say spin-offs still aren't in the upcoming likelihood bucket.

    I'd be awfully surprised if they really did wipe the slate clean for Shinou. The Battle Frontier was a great season, but there are still so many loose ends that haven't been touched upon with the current cast.

    Of course, the lack of Ash, (or Brock or May or Max) in that poster may suggest we are getting something brand new. At least the first AG poster revealed showed us the entire group.

    That poster, however, was from a massive cockup that revealed everything long before it was intended.

    Everything in the run up to D/P has been a LOT more closely guarded than it ever was before R/S. It's really rather likely that this image was created with the sole purpose of saying "Hey, look, the D/P chick's gonna be in the anime! But be damned if we're telling you any more than that YET! :p". I mean, there's really nothing in that image. Diaruga and Parukia show that it's for Diamond and Pearl, the girl shows that she's going to be in it. But that's it.

    They aren't even anime images, just sugimori art plastered together.

    Yeah, good point. Though in some ways the current cast getting their last hurrah in Kanto, the region it all started in, would have been quite fitting. Eh, I'd rather see Ash and co. continue on, though.

    Uhh, I'm surprised no one has commented on the 6 other scans I found of CoroCoro *shameless plug*

    Anyway, this could work out. I mean, Yugioh did it, and I love GX more then the original.
