PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So, about 3,000 years after everyone else did, I'm thinking of starting the X&Y anime. I am simply curious as to whether the brand-spanking-new XY&Z series is a replacement continuation of the X&Y series, or is it simply a side story that doesn't focus on the Pokémon League?
I'll most likely watch both anyway, I would just like to know for definite before I begin to binge.

Help me, anime trashlings ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

XY&Z is a continuation of the XY series, it's just a different season. Thus the name includes the letters 'XY'. I don't wanna spoil that much tho. XY&Z is new so I can't tell you if it's a side story which won't include Ash battling the league, but I can tell you that it is a continuation and not a replacement. Again I don't want to spoil that much but recurring characters from XY do return in XY&Z, and that would have never happened if XY&Z was a replacement.

Source: I watch the anime, in XY&Z Ash gets the 8th badge so no way is XY&Z a replacement.

I mean, is the XY anime still ongoing as the XY&Z anime is? Or has it stopped and XY&Z taken over?
You should have clarified that, yes XY&Z has taken over but it's a continuation of XY! Think of it as a 2nd or 3rd Season.
No problem, I just wanted to clear up that last point. Thanks a lot :)
