    Unfortunately, I think you're right, though I can at least still see them getting a few focus episodes and some character development through Popplio & Togedemaru

    I still have hopes that they'll give more development for Lana since Japanese viewers could see her as cute (in an "awe you're so adorable/kawaii, I could just eat you up & stick you inside my purse" kind of way)

    I hope that if Kiawe is Ash's battling rival, Sopholcles is his School rival. Y'know, that one annoying Teacher's pet who is super arrogant.

    They're the least talked about already, I wouldn't be surprised if they tend to be more background by the time the SM anime is done tbh. We'll have to see.

    Because nobody has even talked about shipping Ash and Lana together Maybe because... well, their designs seems a bit lackluster compared to Lillie, Mallow, or Kiawe. Those three seem to have some kind of look that makes them seem like interesting characters to speculate about and lots of speculation has been done because of that. It may also help those three that they seem to get a little more screen time during our trailers.

    Even then, I sure hope they don't get pushed aside as the series goes on. Lana is extremely adorable and Sophocles looks like that smart-allic kid who can give some pretty good humorous responces to anything that comes his way.

    Considering how underpopulated Kalos was part of the time, I'm VERY interested to see how this plays out. This could be DP-style interactions. Or at least BW (worst saga, but it WAS fun seeing Ash-tachii and the supporting cast hang out. I gotta give it that)

    While we're at it...since old characters are coming back in the games, does anyone else wonder if that means some special guests appearances sooner or later

    ^ The real questions being asked.

    How long do you think it'll take the writers to forget about XY's ending and start throwing in the Ash/Mallow or Ash/Lillie ship teases? I'm saying 10.

    Not only does she have the least appealing design compared to Mallow and Lillie, but she is also the quietest. RIP focus.

    I do not think SM used for crushing somehow finds more to a misleading title or the plot that some of the companions of Ash interested in boy "x". Shippin still exist in the fandom but I do not worry the staff in Ash match with a companion "Dred" or anything like that.
    But I think serpia interesting that in schoolwork couples Kiawe / Mallow be formed by those who appear more mature, Sophocles / Lana both younger and Ash / Lillie who are agenenos the group of island captains.

    Anyway I want the SM anime to get serious and the plot to get interesting. That's why I'm rooting for Lillie to be an Ultra Beast.

    Probably relatively few episodes, I'm just gonna drop the shipping topic so we don't get dragged into a shipping war or something... those are scary *shudders*

    Well, Lana has an adorable face and she must be hugged at all costs. Alas, I feel that's she'll be majorly overshadowed by Mallow and Lillie.

    If shipping is ever teased, I want Ash to be the one with the crush. Not him being a clueless chick magnet yet again.

    Lana will probably get screen time, especially if she's more proactive. I think Lillie's arc and Mallow's louder personality will resonate with the cast more.

    Sophocles is probably going to be the character that gets shafted the most.

    Electric-Type themed character getting the shaft? Where have I seen that one before?

    The anime must get really bored with Electric specialist main characters fast... *crosses fingers* Please let Sophocles get decent screentime, he looks like a fun character...

    At the moment, I'm more interested in and have been speculating how these characters will interact with Ash.

    Of the new characters, Lillie interests me the most, because of her inability to touch Pokémon despite her love for them. Also, out of all the classmates, I think she is the one most likely to stick around as a main character if/when Ash graduates or drops out and starts traveling. I can't tell if she is going to be sweet to Ash or treat him like an imbecile. But I do have a feeling she is going to be SM's Walking Exposition (when the Rotomdex isn't).

    Mallow strikes me as the friendliest of the classmates, and probably the one most similar to Ash in terms of personality. If Ash develops a sibling-like relationship with any of the characters, then it will probably be with her. But if nothing else, at least she will find in Ash an enthusiastic restaurant patron.

    Kiawe will probably start out as Ash's battle rival. He might find Ash annoying at first, but then grow to respect him, and may even be impressed by his unconventional battle style. I also think Kiawe will be the one to teach Ash how to synchronize with his Pokémon to activate Z-Moves. I hope Ash retains his two left feet, and that Kiawe is as good at dancing in the anime as he is in the games, because if so, then that dance lesson is going to be hilarious to watch.

    Sophocles might be Ash's rival due to their electric mice's rivalry. I half expect Sophocles, considering himself an expert on Electric type Pokémon, to give Ash unsolicited advice on how to "properly" raise Pikachu, and to use his Togedemaru as an example of a "properly raised" Electric type Pokémon - something to which Ash better not probably won't take too kindly.

    I think Lana's interactions with Ash depend on whether or not she, being an eldest sister herself, views Ash as a younger brother figure (which, I confess, I really want). In any case, I think she will be sweet and kind to Ash, regardless of her opinion of him.

    I hope Professor Kukui gets a lot of screen time, since Ash is going to be staying with him. Maybe Kukui will enlist Ash's help in his research. (Arceus knows the boy has had plenty of experience with Pokémon using their moves on him.)

    The day Ash crushes on somebody again is the day he wins a League. He's always going to be too dense to understand his own feelings.

    I agree. But I don't want another main protagonist crushing on him and him not knowing about it, since we've just had that for 3 years.

    Hoping for SM Season 2 or SME( when Ash challenges 7 Trials) for Mallow and Lillie to travel with Ash.
    Kiawe to be his rival. Trio to catch 2-3 Pokemon.

    But their are no confirmation that the trial captains are going to be there in the Anime. Lana, Mallow, Sophocles, and Kiawe are Ash's classmates in the school here.

    And yet all of four them have the badges that all Trial Captains wear.

    There's no way the anime will exclude Trial Captains. I bet that once four of them graduate they will become legit Trial Captains.

    But how do they have the badges while they are all still classmates?

    I wouldn't mind Lillie crushing on him.
    But if one of the girls is crushing on him, I hope the crush doesn't overshadow everything about the character like it did with Serena.

    It's a nice thought, though I do question how much of the old mythos they'd be willing to redesign to the new style.

    I do really hope Serena gets at least some return appearance with Ash though. Don't make her obsolete after just one region, fellas.

    I could see it being like Korrina's arc where Ash has to help them qualify for the role before he can challenge them.
