Did anyone notice in the trailer how all the pokemon never said their names like in the anime? It was just roars, hisses, growls, etc. I guess that in the games pokemon doesn't say their names but just makes animal sounds.
With team plasma coming back, I wonder if any of the seven sages will also return, or if there will seven new ones.
...If the anime looked anything like that, I wouldn't mind getting up early to watch it. But it's not...
So N returns. The Shadow Triad are most certainly NOT the Striaton brothers (white hair and Bisharp). Elesa's flashier than ever.
Didn't expect the Rival to be your friend again. He doesn't look all that nice.
I myself love the camera motion, because they made it feel like you're watching an anime that is much less stiff than the current anime's camera style. The movement from Magneton works for me, mostly because they made it feel like a living being and not just some background character. Plus, if it were made out of magnets, I'd imagine that it would make some kind of movement rather than just floating. It's really cool how detailed they went with this trailer.I do like much of the animation in this trailer, but all the movement of the characters (and also all the camera movement) wouldn't be the case if this was a TV series. The flashy Elesa scene's just one example. I'd actually prefer if Magneton didn't move as much as it did.
I would love to see an anime based off of this concept, but I wouldn't want the main character to own two Fire-types like this one. Ash and his many Bug and Grass-types is enough for me, tyvm.

Spoiler:- Credits, etc.:
if the anime looked anything like this we would likely not have the anime
It would more epic if Homika and Shizui appeared in the trailer
I was apprehensive about the new games, but this changed my mind
It does follow it pretty loosely though, has a lot in the way of filler and there's nothing stopping them from putting their own spin really, even to a slightly bigger extent, but as they said they choose to have the anime as it is, and don't plan on changing it. (Or so an earlier poster said).You've stated it yourself: many of the Pokemon manga out their own spin on things. The anime, on the other hand, actually follows the story of the games for the most part sans the filler episodes. If you want to blame the anime for having a bad plot, point your finger to the games as well since their plot is just as bad for the most part.

I wish the anime itself was of such good quality. The Bianca expy looks just like her only dorky. Elesa has gotten even more fanservicey.
Some days you just can't force a smile. :<
The trailer's been released officially.
Production was by OLM just like the regular anime it seems. Nice to know.
edit: In hindsight, it's funny how people were suggesting that the company already animating the show should be the ones animating the show.
