Thinking about it from a purely creative standpoint, Sombra’s character actually does fit the mold of the type of super-villain I am imagining for the series.
Basically, Sunny represents hope. Sombra represents despair. What if G5 involves a long arc with a linear plot. (That would be something relatively new and different for MLP.) Sunny & Company go on a quest to re-unite Equestria and gradually chip away at the hopelessness, pessimism and mistrust permeated by a dark force that has plagued the land for generations. This culminating in a massive coalition brought together to bring down said dark force.
Although yeah, hard to put much stock in a description on a backcard. This is just to say that, for now, I’m looking at Sombra as a placeholder and little more.

I’m not saying this. I’m saying that I find some intense criticisms about G5 pretty silly, especially when the same objections can be found in other pieces of MLP:FiM that the complainer enjoys without question.
Obviously there’s valid criticism, but we’re talking about an information that we know without context and we found in a toy from a pony generation that we know very little apart from the film A new generation and some comics for little kids.
Remember the Twilight alicorn leaks? People were mad at first. Does that make Magical Mistery Cure a bad episode? Not at all, especially many years after it came out, when we finally understood why Twilight became an alicorn. I think we’re gonna see something similar to Sombra, whoever he is. We shouldn’t jump to conclusions with a text that came from a toy for little girls.
If I have to guess, it’s related to the upcoming special we’re gonna get in… march or may? I forgot.
@Pinto Bean
I might actually prefer that, although I’m open-minded to some surprises.
But man, MLP leaks are still a tradition. xD

Am I the only one who isn’t bothered by Sombra’s supposed return? I’m just eager to see what they’ll do to him here, connections to G4 be damned. Also, it’s not like bringing back doesn’t mean that they’re not gonna come up with new villains later on.

im 90% sure that Sombra won;t return since it just seem like the toy description is a result of someone doing a lazy copy and paste job, but if he is coming back, i have mixed feelings about it.
mainly becuase like i mentioned before, i’d rather the g4 characters stay dead and only appear if it was like flashbacks or something. It’d feel like more like they;d be relying too much on G4 to bing people in rather then be it;s own thing, if that makes sense.

If any G4 character was responsible for the starter setup in G5, it was probably Cozy Glow. Think about why for a minute.

Yeah, bringing back one villain and mentioning the Mane 6 doesn’t mean that they’re gonna be entirely relying on G4, there’s still an entire generation’s worth of new material that they’ll do in the upcoming years.
Also, that was why I said “Supposedly” cause I don’t know if the rumors are true or not. If they bring him back well I made my point there and if not, then that’s fine by me.

As I recall, the toy also referred to Sunny as “the main character of the last generation of My Little Pony”, when it should have been the current generation. So, not a particularly reliable source.

Bottom line is the vast majority of G5 enthusiasts were or are looking for a fresh start. What we got was something new, yet still clinging to its predecessor like it’s afraid to let go. I love FiM, but I feel like everything that could be done with it has been done, and it’s high time to turn the page. MLP > FiM.

That’s fine. I’m not expecting this series to be perfect. A few chunks of coal amongst a pile of diamonds ain’t gonna bother me much. Sombra or not, I’m still super excited for what’s next.

I think the key here isn’t “what”, it’s “how”. How this is gonna be delivered. In terms of narrative, the writers need to pull off crucial details like visual storytelling, introduction, character development, motivations, conflicts, etc.
Let’s see.

Like they say “There’s no such thing as a bad idea. Only poorly executed awesome ones”.The idea of Sombra or someone like Sombra in g5 could be interesting, however I’m going to be a bit pessimistic and say I don’t see the writers doing a good job with executing that. If they want to bring someone back from the past choose a character from the previous gens who haven’t been revamped in g4, like Catrina or King Charlatan.

Vanessa Hudgens did a great job in the G5 movie, considering it was her first time doing voice acting.

I guess you can technically throw in grogar in there since the one we see in g4 was someone else disquised as him and we have some foreshadowing for the former with his bell being in argyle’s house.
