Recently Boruto the next generations is picking up its pace in plot development. And from the first chapter, which managed to show what is yet to happen, there wasn’t any Rinnengan activity. Without counting Momoshiki, Sasuke is the only one with the Rinnengan up to so far. And since Momoshiki is going to be wiped out. This reduces any chances that the Rinengan will be on the list of the most powerful powers in this era.
With most of Shippuuden characters out of the picture, and Sarada as the only inheritor of the Sharingan, which has most chances of leading us to the Rinnengan. Then chances are that the Rinnengan is losing its fame as the most powerful power in existence. The plot seems to be following a new powerful power source as most of the Rinnengan wielders are being taken out of the plot.
To Bring about the originality of this sequel, then the previous generations like Sasuke and Naruto should get out of the way so that we can fully see the new generation capabilities. And from Chapter one it seems as this has already been taken care of. Besides all of that, keeping the power circulation around the Rinnengan or Sage powers will be like retelling Shippuuden in another way. And will open no new platform for other powers. Since Shippuuden was just a continuation of the original Naruto Series, it carried along with it all the legendary powers like Rinengan and the Sage powers.
