The challenge isn’t just a new adventure for Ash and company, but creating context for the things that already existed just fine with out it. The danger is making things convoluted and alienating fans that really love the simple fun that the film series provided.

Listen, social mores are different in Japan, which is completely fine, but I just can’t get into pantie jokes concerning 12 year old kids. Call me old fashioned, I guess.
