(So, did anyone else besides me think that might have been Dawn’s Piplup for a sec until they revealed its trainer later in the trailer?)

I wasn’t expecting this to be Marshadow’s movie… Thought Ho-oh would be our main legendary star. Thought they’d wait to do an Alola-based movie to do Marshadow.

Misty and Brock are looking different than how I remembered ‘em…(I mean, I figured this would be an as-yet unknown adventure, but with the old cast rather with new companions. I guess alternate continuity?)

Well, according to Bulbapedia, this isn’t Red, but a researcher named Bonji. However, the fact he has Red’s hat kind of makes me think this is a nod to all the ‘Red is a hermit’ jokes.

Also, possibly Ash’s Charmander and Butterfree make an appearance:

We also get a shot of Ash engaged in a battle with a Tengela, so perhaps we’ll actually get more of a ‘Vs! Erika’ battle this time around?

Nurse Joy telling Mokoto about TR in (what I presume to be) Viridian, and their appearance in the trailer:

As well as who I presume to be our main antagonist (Cross) and his Incineroar, and a gorgeous parting shot of Ho-Oh.

I’m excited to see what role the legendary phoenix plays.
