Pokemon contests are still a part of the show.

the new rival. He's boring. Gary, and even Harley did the whole rival thing a lot better. Granted, I like the way he represents the "real" pokemon trainers. If it's not the writers taking a shot at the hardcore community, I find it a nice little easter egg, for lack of a better term.

It isn't just this forum, the entire internet is full of nerdlings complaining about of something or another.

Anyway, I'm actually rather pleased with most of the anime now-a-days, except for perhaps their inhouse dubbing scores (an example could be the pachirisu chase scene, it would have fit an epic battle, but not a light-hearted chase scene...), The intro could be better, but I pay no interest to it anymore, and perhaps Ash's new voice actress could improve a little more.

But aside from that, that's it.

The new voices are terrible, the acting is subpar. The writing is unfortunate. The visuals are stunning. It all doesn't fit when a professionally animated show sounds like a fandub and then aired for all to see.

Nothing annoys me. The voices sound great to me, the cartoon is picking up a bit and I'm loving every minute of what I manage to see online.

I'm sitting back and enjoying it. That's the main point.:)

I really don't like analysing the cartoon. I did it once and never again. I almost quit watching during Pokemon 8th season due to analysing.

A lot of things about the Dp series bother me, but here are some

The theme song is really annoying. (The worst one ever.)
The fact that Misty isn't on the show anymore. Grrr.
Ash losing to a gym leader and having to rebattle them.
Brock always getting pulled away from a girl he "loves."
Team Rocket's new motto.

This is just some.

The theme song was always annoying to me, get over it Misty might never come back :(
let's see the ash thing has happened at every season, atleast it shows he's not the classic hero where he's perfect
the brock thing has happened since the Johto saga I think
Team Rocket's motto did need a change -_-' quite frankly I got tired of it.
oh yeah and btw........ITS A CARTOON SHOW get over it. Face it, there is no way to please you people so the writers just go with what has worked in the past.

anybody that writes in any forum on the internet about pokemon, digimon, naruto, avatar, etc... is a nerdling and yes that includes everyone here just to clear that up
and you guys are basically complaining about people complaining.. but back to the topic i dont like it to much but i think the voices sound much better but i like jessie and james voices much better the previous seasons and the graphics are so cool they should have done these kind of graphics a while back it would have made everything ten times better and dawn gets on my nerves but everybody probably knows that by now, we have gone through two seasons without misty but she and may will probably be showing up eventually

"Nerdling"?


So that must mean that kids animate it. Thanks for clearing that up.

If, by "professionally animated", you mean "professionally created, produced, and directed", then it's not meant to be created to be very sophisticated or anything, since it's a kids show that advertises video games.

If you literally mean animated... it's not really that professionally animated, is it? (Besides not really moving that much, having CGI attacks and whatnot- not for every attack, but many of them).

I don't think Cybercubed was talking about the dub. All those are just dub opinions, as the original has the same voices and writing.

No one specified if this meant the dub or the show in general.

Nah, I mean, a professional paid group does it...


But there is no arguement that the show doesn't have stunning visuals. Where the hell are people getting this from? Sure, some episodes look better, but it's a show on a weekly budget...ergo, no stunning visuals.

Sure it does. If Misty were doing those Contest, you bet those people would "magically" like them.


They're just bitter that Contests became so popular that they stuck with the series for 5+ years and two female characters, while Misty has been basically abandoned aside from some reunion cameos.

I dislike the contests because they aren't battles and made the show more repetitive, I would've equally not liked them if Misty were doing them.

Korobooshi Kojiro

I've only viewed the show sporadically lately but I think it looked good, but sometimes too polished. I miss the rougher styles of yore.

One thing about the fillers though, people aren't aware that without fillers the series can go faster like the Hoenn saga or Kanto but to be honest what would they have to delay the series for another year for if there was a generation 5??? Nothing, to be honest fillers are nice. Contests are cool because finally we don't get to see the same thing over and over, travel to a town battle a gym, now atleast we have 2 people with different goals still.

(Quotes from the closed repeat-thread)


Gary's role in the anime was mostly done. How could Paul steal something (who is honestly a better rival than Gary ever was), that was never there in the first place?
I'm not sure what you mean about Gary. They tried to give him a special role as Ash's rival in Sinnoh, correct? But he's no where to be seen, and Paul shows up. I'd agree that he is a fresh new character and I welcome his successful portrayal as a rival, but I can't say he's a better one than Gary was. Being meaner doesn't necessarily mean better.


And stealing Brock's Chimchar? LMAO, after how horribly handled Mudkip was, why would you want to see Brock with another starter? It was pathetic how he handled the last one he had. Its a joke.
Well, I'd rather Paul have it, actually. I was mostly just making a joke, really, so I agree.


lol, you haven't changed at all. You'd think after 5 seasons you'd finally get over it. Is it just me, or do you like repetitive and creatively dead characters (admittedly Brock should have left ages ago as well) over fresh characters that actually bring new life to the show?
When I say I wanted Contests to end after Advanced Generation, I'm not really referring to the characters that come with them. It's more like the actual Contests themselves - both the fact that I thought it was a side-quest solely for Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, and because Contests used to bore me. I admit they are a special new twist, with all the concentration on what attacks look like and everything, but meh. For some reason I was never that into them, and it was a rather unpleasant surprise to hear they'd become a regular in the anime... but as I already said, I'm getting on the brighter side of them. Especially with the "spicing up" I said they were having in Sinnoh.


Its sad how people want to show to revert back to the repetitive mess it once was.
Repetetive mess it once was? Are you talking about Kanto? That's ridiculous, the show's basically repeating over and over again NOW. All the old episodes were classic, each with a good story...

...but I won't go off topic about it now. o_o;

CyberCubed

I'd agree that he is a fresh new character and I welcome his successful portrayal as a rival, but I can't say he's a better one than Gary was. Being meaner doesn't necessarily mean better.

I say Paul is a better rival than Gary because he shows up a hell of a lot more often. Not to mention battles Ash a hell of a lot.

If you remember, Gary didn't even have his first battle with Ash until the last episode of the Orange Islands! And then in Johto, they never had a battle until the league. So in the 5 seasons that Ash/Gary had a rivalry....they battled twice. :/

WTF. Also, Gary never said he was going to be Ash's rival in Sinnoh. Gary is not collecting badges anymore, he never said he was going to do that again.

As for Contests, there was always something different happening in each one they made. New character development, battles, Pokemon, appeals, and they're not done to death like Ash's Gyms are. And of course, it is nice to see the female characters in more battle-centric roles, its what really killed Misty for me when all she ever did was hold that boring egg.

Hikari and Ash do nothing for me (that is, I personally dislike them due to individual taste and/or opinion), and have underwhelming actors on top of that. Plus Ash's pokemon are boring. The only one that I have any interest in is Naetle, but that's only for it's species. (And after seeing his first episode, it seems that he's basically Bulbasaur, which isn't cool. But Hikari's pokemon are alright.)

It's taken almost fifty episodes for Kricketune to appear. That's just wrong.

Brock still doesn't get to do anything.

Nando has a stupid accent and isn't a short, chipper, curly headed Mexican.

The theme song sucks.

But overall, I really do like the series. The episodes themselves are entertaining, so I can overlook the petty things.

J doesn't cut it for me. I want the Galactics! One shot of Saturn isn't enough. The Rockets, the Aquas, and the Magmas were all introduced in their region's SECOND episodes.

Korobooshi Kojiro
28th September 2007, 12:21 PM
I don't see how having character be from the games would instantly make them better then the Anime's own character honestly. If they give us a great J story, then the disclusion of a group probably won't be that upset.

the Aquas, and the Magmas were all introduced in their region's SECOND episodes.
Yeah...but they ended up with a rather sucky climax.

I agree, that was unfortunate and a bad decision on part of the writers, but I was mainly talking about general likability and character.


Also, Gary never said he was going to be Ash's rival in Sinnoh. Gary is not collecting badges anymore, he never said he was going to do that again.
Are you sure? Well I guess I need to watch that episode again... but he DID say he was going to Sinnoh, right? O_o;

And of course, it is nice to see the female characters in more battle-centric roles, its what really killed Misty for me when all she ever did was hold that boring egg.
What I mainly wanted (and initially expected) was for a new kind of Pokemon battling to surface with the 4th generation, just like Contests came for the 3rd. Of course, looking back at it now, I did seem to be expecting an unreasonable (and perhaps impossible) amount of creativity and endless ideas.

In the Japanise version, Pochama sounds masculine and Mimirol feminine. In the dub its the other way round.

Now I admit that I like the anime if only for knowing how to pronounce the names of the pokemon but of course I dont mind watching it for SOME entertainment value also but of course there are things I hate also.

* The fact its basically the last season all over again: Stupid ignorant girl starting out on her journey to become a pokemon co-ordinator and ends up arguing with Ash along the way, only difference is (in Dawns case), is that Dawn gets dressed up for contests.

* The New Chick: Well this is more along the lines of hating ALL females that come into the show, once again we are stuck with a chick who is going to argue with Ash as much as May and Misty did. Couldnt we have, just once, a female who WONT argue with Ash? I know, friends argue but last series I just didnt watch it, Saw may acting like a spoilt brat again and decided to leave it.

Cant we just, for once, have a female who will argue with Ash but not every other episode? It really does put a person off watching the anime.

* The fact its another wannabe co-ordinator: Couldnt we have had a pokemon ranger wannabe or something? I know that might of had to give the story writers work to do in actually writing out new scripts but last time I checked, that was their job.

* The voice actors: Now it just sounds like they picked the voice actors and had them try and sound like the old lot, why didnt they just make them do all new voices for them?

* Team Rockets motto: I admit this new one sounds a little more 'evil' concidering their bad guys but god it totally and utterly sucks! I think they either should of stuck with the last one or droped the whole motto completely. Now that I think about it, the latter seems a whole lot better, it is old and boring and seriously doesnt need to be said at all, why not just do me (and others im sure) the favor of just getting rid of it for good?

* Paul: Now, I admit, he IS a better rival then gary was but still he annoys te hell out of me with his arrogance and the way he treats pokemon. I know it will sound corny, forgive me, but he needs to respect his pokemon and treat them as friends if not he needs to get rid of his arrogance, one has to go because both annoy me...

Granted even if one DID go he would still annoy me but not nearly as much as he does now.

I think thats it for me, I cant really think of anything else that annoys me with this series.

Dawn? Shes funny, but not as funny as Ash was when he started out.
Ash? I wish he was still funny.

Meh.


The show is just uninspired. It's not really this season specifically-- But mostly everything just feels drawn out. ( which it is... New games, new seasons until the end of the franchise )

The show just isn't doing the game any credit. It's really why I stopped watching it.

It's just a money cashout... Ash and company doing the same sh1t we have seen for the last 10 years.

How many years can you honestly expect people to watch Ash go to a new zone, catch the same generic style of team, battle some Gym Leaders and then battle in a tournament? Wow originality... Oh and don't forget the 50 some odd filler episodes where Team Rocket steals a pokemon and then Ash and Co have to battle them.

They should have scrapped Ash after the Orange League tbh. Start over new each season with a new lead character. It would have given things a better perspective. I know all the fanboys and girls would cry but I don't care. The show is BORING! But that's what I got to say about that..

Now now, there will none of that rudeness. Thanks.

I'm not sure whose post you're replying to--I didn't say anything about the writing there. But it isn't very good, no. Reading through the archives, i've sorted out that the guy who wrote the scripts did indeed write them at 4Kids, but according to Maddie, his scripts weren't the best and they needed a lot of editing.


I've been watching Battle Frontier or D/P eps back to back with Kanto and Hoenn eps and have absolutely no problem transisting between the voices, especially since about half of them sound very close to the originals.

Well, that's your opinion. Fine, dandy, etc. I find that people worry too much about this cast sounding close to the original voices, instead of the quality of the acting, which isn't good, either.

As far as, well, 'transiting' is what I think you meant, the raw Japanese episodes have been pretty interesting to watch. Watching them, and then watching the original cast, doesn't feel like a jarring move. Watching the raw, and then the new dub, only highlights the "fandub" aspects of the new show even more.


He's made it obvious he's complaining about the dub though.

Well, sure, in other posts. I was making a general observation, though, about the production of the show. The show, dub or otherwise, has become pretty stale for me. What makes the raw version often interesting is the interstitial things that get left out of the English version, like original songs and endings and commercials and those English lessons they used to have with different characters.

The new dub sucks not only becuse NOBODY sounds right anymore but the new cast just just do it as a job and don't have fun with it like the old cast did.

I swear the old cast add libed a lot of the time. Some of the lines they would say would be absoultely hillarious, enough to turn what would normally be a boring filler episode into something intresting and watchable.

Sigh now the lines that where doggy are all gone :( It's the sort of stuff that would fly right over a kids head but an adult would. Sure it wasn't intentional but that made it even better.

I Hate Dawn Shes Such A W***re.

...Because...


To get back on topic. I don't like the DP series mainly because it causes people to fight over unimportant things when there is war, homeless people, people dying, diseases, and other important things that we should be caring more about.

The whole series does that. Also, in the Pokemon world, battles are important things. (Also also, it's a kids show. Do they all need to have war and people dying in them?)


You know what annoys me the most is people complaining about how people are complaining... Who cares? If you care about people complaining you need a life especially if you care about people using appropriate grammar and using periods on a freaking pokemon forum.. Its PATHETIC. Let people complain and get out what they want to say you can agree or disagree and not be a total B***** about it. Just say what you think and dont be all oh shut up! or your full of it! GET OVER IT its NONE of your buisness

It really depends on what people are complaining about. (Although I personally don't flame or anything.)

But your post sounds like the type of thing that you're complaining about.


The show is just uninspired. It's not really this season specifically-- But mostly everything just feels drawn out. ( which it is... New games, new seasons until the end of the franchise )

Not that I'm disagreeing with you, but the games are the same way.


It's just a money cashout... Ash and company doing the same sh1t we have seen for the last 10 years.

Same thing with the games. As the GameTrailers reviewer said about D/P, "This is the same game that we've been playing for nine years now."

[/QUOTE]How many years can you honestly expect people to watch Ash go to a new zone, catch the same generic style of team, battle some Gym Leaders and then battle in a tournament? Wow originality... Oh and don't forget the 50 some odd filler episodes where Team Rocket steals a pokemon and then Ash and Co have to battle them.[/QUOTE]

Same with the games, though. We still have ten-year-old Trainers who get eight badges and all of that stuff. The characters you can play as are new, but... that's not that refreshing since the characters you play have less personality than Ash, who... has more of a personality.


They should have scrapped Ash after the Orange League tbh. Start over new each season with a new lead character. It would have given things a better perspective. I know all the fanboys and girls would cry but I don't care. The show is BORING! But that's what I got to say about that..

Hopefully the new lead characters would be interesting too. Because if not, the series would be in the same problem that it's in now.


Oh.. At Staravia's voice. /kill self

I agree here. I like Mukubird's better.

Seriously. I am not the only one who agrees with this, but Contests were one of the best additions to the show. They allowed May and Dawn to have major roles in the shows without them rotting away like poor Misty did. Not to mention in narrows down on the fillers.

Haha that counts the whole of the Pokemon series then, not just D/P. I'm just annoyed that they've had obviously recycled episodes (Turtwig's capture, Dawn/May and Ash double battle, Parasect/Mothim evolve thing)




and another thing that annoys me....they still arent showing in england....i wish they would hurry up. we're stuck with Master Quest, Advanced and Battle Frontier re-runs....grrr

Well, its not that bad...I haven't seen some Battle Frontier episodes at least 10 times! Blasphemy XD I don't think they even show Advanced/Challenge. I know they've repeated Advanced Battle a few hundred times though. Yeah, Advanced Battle and Battle Frontier are like imprinted in my brain forever

Wow, people are still compaining over the VAs o.O

Agreed with you on the Sugar episode, though! Which is really one of the very few fillers of DP (which there are little of anyway) which I would consider bad or meh quality.

The only real flaw I can tihnk of off the top of my head is thanks to Cartoon Network. That being, of course, the crazy fast schedule the show's had. Yeah, we're on the one-ep-a-week schedule now, but we still already have 33 episodes in only later October. Crazy. XD

Almost everything is annoying.

- Dawn is a dull girl who wants to be a master. I'm really sick of girls like her. Look only, what would happen if she was shy? Wouldn't be more original than a next, hyper trainer? Dawn is really nothing new in the show.

- Interesting facts from the game have been removed from the show: Mars's job in the Windworks Valey, Jupiter's job in the city where Gardenia is and more stuff related with Team Galactic.

- Ash is traveling with flying, grass, fire, electric type pokemon again. When will I see him with dark or dragon? Will this even happen? I expect not but it would be so cool!

- Nothing new. Still this same plot. Ash must get 8 badges, Dawn must get 5 or more robbons, Brock is looking for a girlfriend, Team Rocket want to steal Pikachu.

- I know, the show is for young kids but I would feel really happy if it was *little* more mature. Now it's on the same level with Hamtaro.

The writers should try harder.

- Interesting facts from the game have been removed from the show: Mars's job in the Windworks Valey, Jupiter's job in the city where Gardenia is and more stuff related with Team Galactic.

That isn't intresting or important and it won't improve the show.
- Ash is traveling with flying, grass, fire, electric type pokemon again. When will I see him with dark or dragon? Will this even happen? I expect not but it would be so cool!

And a Dragon or Dark type will improve the show GREATLY, won't it?

- Nothing new. Still this same plot. Ash must get 8 badges, Dawn must get 5 or more robbons, Brock is looking for a girlfriend, Team Rocket want to steal Pikachu.

Robbons, lol. And the show is for kids.

Yes, and as we ALL know, the show will improve greatly if it is DARKER or more MATURE.

Okay first off, none of those things you suggested would improve the show. Its much better than Hamtaro. And I like this season. Heck in the fifth generation they might introduce something new. Like how they did contests but maybe something else. And have the new character do that.

You disagree with my post, probably you are one of those who think that pokemon is the greatest show ever. You must know that I said my opinion about the new season and you are wrong. Mars's and Jupiter's job would be very interesting and I'm not one who would love to see them in the show. Also, Dawn - like I said - is nothing new. She is a next, hyper, cute trainer. I would like to see a shy trainer or something what would be little different. I'm tired of all hyper, great, boring people.

The only reason Dawn is another coordinator is because GameFreak didn't create anything new for the games.

The writers can't be blamed because otherwise she would have nothing to do so she was forced to do Contests.

I agree its slightly annoying to simply see Dawn repeat exactly what we watched May do for four years, but her Contests are still enjoyable and she has awesome Pokemon. The only thing that bugs me is her rivals are somewhat dull compared to May's.

Well, I'm over the voice actors, but one thing that really annoy's me is Team Rocket's new motto. It's okay, but I like the old mottow better. Also, James has les spokemon than Jesse. And about this time in AG, Ash had 4 badges. In this season, he only has 2. There have been too many filler episodes, there haven't been enough contests, and Brock hasn't really done enough.Yes he won an egg and hatched it, but that's it really. Ash seems a little dense to me so far in DP, and there haven't been enough evolutions, just muku.Bird's evolution. DP is okay, but it could be so much better...

Also, couldn't they have dubbed an English version of Together. I'd rather listen to that than some wannabe rock band that sounds like their from the 80s try to do the opening.

Oh!! There's also that annoying theme song and Team Rocket's damn motto.
I like everything else, though.

There really isn't anything that annoys about Pokemon DP. To be honest, PUSA is doing a great job on the dub of DP. Both BF and DP were amazing. I dont get why people are hating on the opening theme. Honestly I hink its good. If you really think about there are some companies that don't even use up their time to make an opening theme, and they just leave the show without any music, so Pokemon DP is actually lucky to have a good opening. And the voices are great. They perfected Dawn and Paul's voices, and Ash's and Brock's voices improved a lot. The brought back some music from 4kids like the music that plays whenever the pokedex is used. And they also brought back or re-dubbed they Pokemon before sinnoh in their old 4kids voices, or close to them. And cause we have never heard sinnoh pokemon dub voices, there dub voices actually match the Pokemon. The only thing I woulde say is for them to bring back Trainer's Choice, or who's that poemon, and on the 3rd and last commercial to use a piece of the song on it like what 4kids did. Like in Pokemon AB on the last commercial it would be like "I'm Unbeatable, Pokemon!" But so, far I am really impressed with Pokemon Diamond and Pearl even though on YTV in Canada, we are only on Gymbaliar because they only show one episode a week.

I'm not overly annoyed, mostly because I hardly watch the anime(but that dosen't mean I don't do other pokemon related things!), but some things do annoy me.

1. Ash's voice- Damn, I'm still getting used to his retarded new voice. It sounds like after 10 seasons of pokemon, he's FINALLY going through puberty. My older brother sounded almost the exactly like Ash's voice when he went through puberty. I like the old voice actor better. The other voices are okay.

2. Team Rocket- Please, someone kill them or export them to Korea so I won't have to see their half-assed attemps to steal Pikachu or Meowth's gay fantasies about Giovanni.

3. The Plot- the plot is the same every season. I'm not talking about a HUGE plot twist, but something different would be a nice change of pace.

4. The Pokemon- The gang seriously needs some uber pokemon.

5. "Friendship is Power"- I don't know about you, but this statment is really starting to get gay. When I play my pokemon games, I cuss at the screen when my pokemon screw up. Also, do you realize how gay it is to say,"Pokemon are your friends, and together you can do ANYTHING!!"?

I'm not constantly thinking about Pokemon 24/7, just when I come on this site which is rarely, and when someone mentions it. So whatever. *rolls eyes*
Sure but the way you are acting seems to me like you are thinking about it, but mostly Misty. Pokemon obssesion is bad for you.

This thread is for the sole purpose of complaining about the show. Some people have just came up on the spot with what is annoying about it, they aren't constantly thinking about it. They have no power on the plot of the show. People will always have something to complain about. However, instead of complaining we should find something better to do. Write your own stories in a notebook and try publishing it when you are older, or try getting a job working for Nintendo, and be a writer yourself
Yeah it's that easy lol.

Two more things are that is annoying is Jessie's Seviper and Dustox; she needs a Skuntank and a Mismagius, and the fact that there are many new water pokemon in this region, and Misty can't be there to enjoy it when she should be. (May needs to come back with Misty, Richie, Duplica, etc. jk She doesn't need to.)
Get over it. The world is not going to end because Misty is not in it.

The writers didn't have to get rid of the coordinator they already had in the show, 3rd generation character or not. Regardless, Dawn still could've had something to do with some of the legendary Pokemon of the region. (Maybe some kind of young researcher or something more interesting.)

So you are upset that Ash is traveling with Dawn? I knew it! Misty lives in you lol.
On a phone? lmaof, I don't have to hear you out but it's funny the way you put things. Your basically admitting to me what you have. Things work in weird ways huh?

I wasn't saying that it's easy.

and you didn't say it was either.

Get over what? I don't care. Don't talk to me ever again.lol no.
here is your quote
this thread is FOR complaining, silly.
hurts doesn't it.

As for on topic. People should really stop complaining about the show. If you don't like it, try watching something else. If you think the show is "the greatest thing ever", then watch it.

To everyone: If you don't want someone to ridicule or bother you for your opinions, you probably shouldn't post. (Like I did.)
lol speak for yourself. Everyone complains even you about Misty.

I personally consider D/P to be one of, if not the, best seasons yet. I cannot get why people are whining about nothing now especially considering how poor Hoenn was.

I guess you just can't please some people.

The D/P series is only a slightly more continuity-based version of Hoenn.

While I agree its an overall better season, calling Hoenn "poor" is laughable by any stretch of the imagination. Saying "you can't please some people" but then pretending Hoenn was a bad season is ridiculous. I've read your previous rants, you general have some of the saddest opinions I've ever heard on season that gave us virtually everything we wanted. So really, Geostomp, who the hell do you think you're fooling?

.Repetative themes
.Another girl who competes in contests, taking away from the actual point of the show(Ash's gym story)
.New voice actors
.The show has done little to no changes STILL
.Misty is not there

If you wanted a useless load following the group, Contests full of endless Frisbees, and Gym battles that would include the infamous "Thunder Armor" then yeah, Hoenn was the season for you.

Hoenn, as I see it, wasn't the worst thing ever, it did have a good deal of ambition, but it just couldn't follow through with it at all.
Frankly, the existence of Max at all was enough to sink it.

I'm sorry my opinions are so "sad" to you, I mean your opinions are flawless naturally, but Hoenn just wasn't for me at all.

Nonsense, just because some gamefaqs users ****** you off doesn't mean the rest of us here think the same thing.

Everything you said right there is a load of nonsense. The frisbee appeals were used in a grand total of about two Contests, (and I fail to see why that's a problem when a BEGINNING coordinator is obviously going to start off with something simple), the "Thunder Amor" was no more a cop-out than Pikachu beating Pryce's Piloswine with Thunderolt, or the cheap way the Kanto badges were won, and even though it was cheap, it was ONE Gym battle out of the other 7, and all the others were fantastic. We've only seen two Sinnoh Gym battles so far, we have no idea if one further down the road will be cheap.


Hoenn, as I see it, wasn't the worst thing ever, it did have a good deal of ambition, but it just couldn't follow through with it at all.
Frankly, the existence of Max at all was enough to sink it.

Max was no more useless than Brock is in 90% of the eps he's in. And even if you didn't like him, Max was easily ignorable because he didn't do that much to begin with. At best he could be entertaining (such as his interactions with Ash), and at worst he was an annoyance, and the rest of the time he was ignorable either way. The way I see it, he didn't distract Ash (or May) from doing what they're meant to do, nor did he detract that much of the show because he was here.

The only thing Hoenn really failed to deliver with was the climax of the Team Magma/Aqua plot, but otherwise Ash made excellent strides as a trainer and his Pokemon team was one of the best he ever had. The Gym battles in Hoenn were better than the bulk of the Gym battles before it, and the Brains were even better than that.

I never really saw much of the Hoenn season because i basically stopped watching Pokemon altogether around the the midpoint of Johto. I decided to finally get back into Pokemon and i bought Diamond on DS. It was pretty good and it got me back into the series and i decided to watch Diamond and Pearl anime online....**** was awesome and reminded me of the good ol days of Kanto. Now i've been watching every ep since maybe 30. I'm already a big fan of Hikari.....for naughty reasons of course cause i may be borderline pedo. @_@;

I don't like:
-comuter animated parts
-loss of a lot of non-game related things, like in Kanto there were a lot of festivals like kid's day and stuff
- theme song
- Ash doesn't even really mention trying to be a pokemon master, and he isn't really that enthusiastic

Sadly, this is all for money and Ash does not mention it anymore because this is how things are set up and are going to be until the end of Pokemon. I don't know where things are going but I hope the writers have something In mind to end the series or have Ash do something differently that he has never done before to keep all of us entertained. IMO a new cast but without Brock because he's the same.

That what sucks about Pokeon having such a lrage, enourmous, big fan crowd. Because so much people love Pokemon, there is so much critism, that everyone wants the show to be perfect. You guyz know a show cannot be perfect, and these people who create the show are doing the best they can. So you guyz should stop critizing and just enjoy the show for what it is. You guyz are lucky Pokemon hasn't ended yet, and I never want Pokemon to end.Pokemon, in my opinion, is the best show on television, and if you don't like don't watch it. So stop critizing, and just the love, and watch the show Pokemon

Nobody's expecting the show to be perfect.

If you think Pokemon's the best show ever, it's fine. But people do have the right to criticize the show. (Downright bashing isn't okay, though.) Criticizing a show doesn't automatically mean a person dislikes the show.

Although some people criticizing the show do want Pokemon to end. (I want it to end eventually, and not in ten or so years either. The games too. But I still like the series.)

That what's annoy me the most. Sure we got Hunter J and yet all she do is to capture pokemon for profit like Team Rocket. The Galactic Gang are more serious on world/universal domination, and they'll do anything to achieve that goal.

I guess I haven't mentioned any of my own complains in the thread. Or I forgot if I did. Well, without counting the coordinator thing...

One thing I don't like is that we've have "Together" for over a year's worth of episodes, and only different versions of "By Your Side". I know we've had other openings that were longer than this, but I don't really think "Together" and "By Your Side" are worth 50+ episodes.
