    Thank goodness it'll premiere weekly. I wonder if they're still going to do that every episode marathon and how they will schedule it.

    episode 6 and 7's dub has also aired elsewhere apparently.. so looks like they are trying to speed up with multiple airings as well..

    That was a nice promo and I'm glad to see that they're promoting the new series. It will be nice to watch new Pokemon episodes again.

    It feels like it's been an eternity even though it's only been a bit over 3 months since the last Pokemon episode on Cartoon Network. On topic, that trailer was hype-inducing, something I haven't said in regards to a Pokemon promo in a while.

    I guess Z-moves are the new Mega-evolution? Anyone know if they're doing specials like the M-E specials last time?

    Z-Moves are basically the new gimmick for the seventh generation. They're kind of like a Mega Evolution for a Pokemon's moves if that makes any sense. As far as I know, there haven't been any announcement for any specials in this series. It could be easier to showcase different Z-Moves within the main series than it was for Mega Evolution. Ash has a Z-Ring and most of the Z-Crystals are for types of moves instead of for a specific Pokemon like with the Mega Stones. There are some Pokemon specific Z-Crystals, but for the most part, any Pokemon can use a Z-Crystal if they have a move that matches with the type that the Z-Crystal powers up.

    It's so nice to see Pokemon getting proper advertisements again. And I really like Sun and Moon, from what I've seen of the dub it look pretty decent.

    It seems they mistakenly promoted it on the Disney Junior Twitter.

    ...The only reason they promoted it on Disney Junior's twitter is because of cross-promotion. But I doubt any preschooler that's around Disney Junior's target audience will watch it.

    Are you sure it's cross-promotion? I could've missed it, but I didn't see anything about it on Disney Channel's Twitter.

    It might not make a lot of sense for them to do that but in terms of advertising they are going to help Pokemon in most ways they can, especially in hopes of interesting an older viewer like a parent.

    I finally saw the opening for the two premiere episodes. So catchy, but it needs to be longer.

    Yeah, the first two episodes are up on their website and On Demand section with the opening and I think the dub score as well. The opening isn't bad, but I agree that needs to be longer.

    Well no duh, Disney XD is promoting the series they have to, otherwise how will people notice?, and to the people saying it's Cartoon Network's fault during season 19, its poor scheduLing. In fact, in Mexico/Brazil the franchise still airing on Cartoon Network, so yeah poor business decisions, not the companies fAult but I wanted to get this off my chest.
