Establishing a structure, but with intent to break free of it? Interesting…
 
One key, of course, will be format. We’ve had half-hour episodes, mixed shorts, direct-to-DVD…
 
 
@Mega PoNEO  
And how are the Rainbow of Light or the Utter Flutter different?

Fan favorites Fizzy and Galaxy from G1 would consistently use their powers when appropriate. G5 should both update these two ponies (and fellow fan favorite Wind Whister) and explore every ability in how it can be used in both combat and non-combat with actually valid scenarios and make most users master their powers to new levels. Oh, and during Fizzy’s, Wind Whistler’s, and Galaxy’s time, neither Discord nor the Elements of Harmony were even in the concept stages, preventing them from breaking stories. Similarly, G5 needs to be more balanced in the same way by not including Discord, the Elements, or anything similar.

If you really wanna see some action and some magic instead of character development, go watch an anime.
What kind of anime? Even DBZ had character development.
 
@Mega PoNEO  
Like Jewelpet.
What’s a Jewelpet?
 
@Latecomer  
I don’t think the series as a whole would require an entire arc plot. Maybe just the first season. Once the world is established, the writers can go nuts.

Possibly. But I don’t know if such an overriding single quest suits MLP. I suppose it’s all in the presentation, though.
 
I wonder what aspects of past gens, if any, G4 overlooked that G5 could borrow and update?

He starts shooting fire when separated from the pony that found him? The dragon lands are surrounded by a constant, violent storm? The lands are filled with monsters? A military regiment would be viewed as an act of war by the nations between the pony and dragon lands? I’m spitballing but I’m sure a work around is possible. As for the Avatar example, Book 3 had a time table but finding benders to teach Aang was a frequent goal on their journeys.

I think a meandering journey means no big urgent objective (although I suppose Avatar made it work, sort of). And there’s also the question of travel by pony type - like, if you need to get him back urgent, why not just strap him to a pegasus?

Whew! Got a headache from all the thoughts that just flooded through. So, the returning Spike idea is based of The Mandalorian (a series) which is based off of Lone Wolf and Cub (a movie).  
They could go the One Piece route for traveling adventure stories, stopping wherever they happen to run into. If they go a more Whovian route, they could use a magic hot air balloon. Or they could be summoned to the table and given missions like in Captain Planet. There’s a lot of options.

Perhaps - but that feels like the plot of a movie, not a whole series with plenty of diversions. Then again, G5 is supposed to start with a movie, though…
 
As for the “worlds travelling” thing, I wonder if they might use a combination of the Map missions and Doctor Who style - the cast is based out of a playset location which travels from world to world based on where they’re needed - or where they need to be.

It’s a tough call considering the generations before it and the stated desire to handle more mature stories and themes. Considering how popular The Mandalorian is right now, I think returning a freshly hatched dragon to the dragon lands before a war starts is a compelling narrative they could do.

Exploring different worlds generally goes hand in hand with quest stories. Is the cast on a mission to return a baby dragon to the dragon lands? Did a human fall through a portal to this would of talking ponies? Are they meeting with heads of state to form diplomatic unions? Why are pegasi, unicorns and ponies traveling together? How did they come together? That’s the stuff I’m most curious about.

Fair enough, I suppose a show like that would have to have a much heavier focus on story, with arcs lasting three to four episodes, focusing on one specific world at a time, and that wouldn’t be too likely to happen.

Speaking of the idea “era style” I think it would be neat if they still do with the idea of each race of pony living is separate worlds, The Earth Ponies could live in a more modern “normal” world, and the other “normal” animals like Zebra, donkey’s and Yaks, could exist.
 
The Unicorns could live in a more High Fantasy style world similar to what G4 had, with the more “magical” Beasts and creatures like Changelings and Kirin existing.
 
Then maybe the Pegasi could live in a Sky world of sorts, or heck maybe they live on Islands that float atop a literal sea made of clouds, things like Griffon and Hippogriffs could live on separate “islands”
 
It would be pretty cool I think if they exemplified the differences between each of the worlds, and maybe even hint at the idea that all three worlds used to be one at some point in the past.
 
To be fair, I’m pretty sure that’s much too entailed to be feasible, but that’s what crossed my mind when I thought about the ponies living in different “worlds”

Well, the places mentioned in the leaks. An enchanted forest matches unicorns very well, just like a colorful meadow and Earth Ponies. I also think Earth Ponies would be more scientifically advanced, but in the Steampunk way! As for Cutie Marks… I have no idea, maybe some kind of cute-looking birthmark? Or a sign that a pony has magic? Maybe it would glow every time an unicorn casts an extremely powerful spell or when an Earth Pony connects themself to the nature or when a pegasus controls the weather.

It would let Hasbro sell a base with interchangeable stickers but another route would be making it a birthmark and the revelation comes from what it means to the bearer. A kind of “not what you are that defines you” sort of thing. G4 cutie marks had an air of predestination about them. G5 could be along the lines of shaping one’s own destiny.

Hmm… one possible take for G5, in line with the growing idea of self-defining one’s identity, is that a pony chooses their mark. Perhaps even can change it, although it might take a big revalation.

Well, necessity is the mother of invention so I’d imagine that if the three pony races live separately that earth ponies would be the most technologically advanced.  
As for cutie marks, I’d like to actually see an explanation for what they are and why they exist.

Well, I guess that’s part of the question? What kind of place do you see them living in?
 
G1 was a fantasy world, yet the pony residences were pure playset. Tales was modern suburban, I think. G3 originated the idea of a place for each kind - earth ponies in the newly-intorduced Ponyville (which was both more modern and pinker than G4’s), pegasi on the tropical Butterfly Island and unicorns in a mountain castle. G4 recycled some of those settings in a more down-to-earth way while givng the scope of a big country and even lands beyond. So what of G5?
