In case you're too lazy to just click that link, here's the plot of it:
"Not long after the events of the finale of Ben 10: Omniverse, Ben and his team set out on their road trip through the universe. However, it seems that there was a permanent effect from Maltruant's meddling with time and the universe, as some things have... changed. Although Maltruant was defeated, the Time War seems to be raging on, causing temporal shifts in the universe. While some changes are welcomed, the group of heroes must set right what was damaged through time, while also checking out the wonders of existence along the way."
In case you couldn't tell from that (or the trivia on the page, but I assume that you didn't even go there if you read the plot on here) the series is a soft-reboot because timey wimey. Technically everything is still canon to some extent but it's also not. If that makes any sense. I hope it does. If you have any questions about the series feel free to ask below.

The terms "Anodite" and "Osmosian" remain, though their meanings have changed. Anodites are ascendent wizards, which would include Verdona, Adwaita, and eventually Gwen, while Osmosians are mutants with absorption powers, like Kevin, Aggregor, and Darkstar.
Some aliens have changed because of the timey wimey stuff:
Humungousaur, like in Alan 10, is perpetually in his Ultimate form now, which will have an actual reason if the show happens, if not I'll just eventually explain it here.
Fasttrack and Kickin Hawk will be altered a bit.
Toepick and Atomix will be heavily altered.
Some OV aliens were never even unlocked or exist at all in the new timeline, them being Bloxx, Crashhopper, Walkatrout, and The Worst. That said, the episodes in which these aliens were unlocked are all slightly altered a bit, where they were replaced with aliens that either do their same powers or concept but better (for Bloxx and Crashhopper) or can have the stand-in for being a small, seemingly useless alien at first but then revealed to actually have powers later (for Walkatrout and The Worst).
Astrodactyl will have a change that happens during the show that in the original timeline wouldn't have happened.
Certain story arcs like Rooters, Diagon, Galactic Monsters, Incursean Invasion, Aggregor, and of course the Time War have had changes but I'm not going to go into specifics for them because spoilers.
In a way everything is still canon but only to Ben and Rook because they remember the original timeline from before the events of A New Dawn. To everyone else (except maybe Paradox) the universe has always been in this (to us) altered state.

Tbh I agree with that lmao. I'll probably redo his art at some point but I just wanted to get a basic idea for his design and have it out there so when I make his page it's not a template with either no image or an image saying "No Image Available." I wanna avoid that as much as possible.
