And will the EU remain on the list of countries where UK pensioners are entitled to receive the annual UK pension increases?
It is to the advantage of the UK when pensioners move overseas. Many who would be applying for social support because they can't make ends meet in the UK can live quite comfortably in lower cost countries. Not to mention the effects of pensioners moving out freeing pressure on hospitals, the housing market etc etc.

Emmigrating pensioners have a net positive economic effect on both the Uk and on the country they are moving to.

Both sides would be stupid to slam the door on that option, or make it unncessarily complicated.
