Admire to Kill Season 3 Chapter 8 is out now! Enjoy reading.

StrangeFryingPan

Hi Sunny, I would like to ask, what does the timeline of AtK look like relative to the Pokémon anime? For example, for the current chapter, about what anime episode would’ve occurred if not for Serena?
          
          For instance, I know Part 2 likely takes place from JN056 onwards given Goh has a Scizor.
          
          To sum up my questions, what anime episodes would’ve taken place during these following vital events:
          
          Serena killing Chloe.
          
          Ash and Serena arriving at Hoenn.
          
          The latest chapter.
          
          Thanks in advance!

@SunnyVII Ah, 105. Almost ironic, the latest chapter of AtK takes place around when Serena canonically returned. Loved that episode.

             I have no episode timelines for the AtK chapters. But upon the latest chapter, it would take place before JN Ep105 happened.
            
            Serena killing Chloe + Ash & Serena at Hoenn doesn't have an episode timeline since the AtK universe stopped the canon events.
            
             I don't consider Admire to Kill to be a "followup" of Pokemon Journeys, it is an Alternative Universe of Pokemon Journeys. 
            
            Thanks for asking!

IS SPINEL REAL IN ATK UNIVERSE ??? OR POKEMON HORIZONS CHARACTERS IN GENERAL???

SunnyVII

@SunnyVII Although adult characters like Rika or Spinel would be around the same age as Ash & Serena! Maybe a cameo would happen? Time will well...

About Spinel or Horizons characters, or from SV; They do exist in the AtK universe. But I rather just not show them yet, as some of them are still babies yet or children. I headcanon that the Horizons series is a timeskip universe of Ash.
            
            But thank you for suggesting!

            She's very much still alive. As for her appearance in AtK? We'll see.

So… where did you get the idea of the exploding you-know-what? Does it have to do with that incident in Oregon?

StrangeFryingPan

@SunnyVII I see.
            Because when I read that scene, the first thought that came to my mind was how a similar event occurred back in the 70s.  There's a reason why a certain Oregon beach park got named "Exploding Whale Memorial Park".

            Actually, no. I didn't mean to reference anything related to real life accidents.
            
            I just wanted to write a realistic outcome of Pokemon just like animals.

Hey Sunny. I have a couple of questions.
          
          1. Will the Masters 8 tournament be written fully, or are you gonna just show Ash vs Leon?
          
          2. Will this  story have more chapters than the previous ones?
          
          Thank you!

Alright. Thank you.

            1. Well, for his canon Masters 8 battle, opponents won't happen at all as his opponents will change in AtK alternatively. 
            
            2. I am not sure, but since Season 3 has three arcs in this story, I'm sure there will be more.

So I was thinking, if Serena is arrested, she will likely be extradited to Kalos for trial, after all she is a Kalos citizen.
          
          Also Yuu said Dawn’s coming to AtK. Like, for realsies homie?

StrangeFryingPan

@SunnyVII Righto, I already narrowed this “benefactor” of sorts to one person, and I am excited for them.
            
            Also yay! Dawn’s coming! Hopefully she lives.

            Actually, there is someone that is stopping her from being arrested and wants some changes or deals with her. I can't spoil it but it is someone who is connected with the Looker & a person who has a crush on Ash at the anime.
            
            If Serena can't make the deal with the person,
             she'll likely be arrested or get a death penalty. 
            
            Dawn will be coming back.

Hi Sunny! I got a question. I assume you have gotten down to watching Pokémon Horizons right? What are your thoughts on the new cast of characters?
          
          Most importantly, have you thought about incorporating any of them into AtK? (Yuu teased a secret character that will appear in Ch. 9 and that had me thinking.)

            Pokemon Horizons characters in AtK? No. But if Season 4 for Admire to Kill happens, maybe.
            I really like Amethio the most out of them.
            
            I cannot tell you more details about some upcoming characters :-) but thank you for asking!
