    Default Things that BUG you about the show

    TEAM ROCKET
    Does anyone else think that they are just extremely annoying.
    They should have more battles and less Team Rocket.
    BATTLES
    I mean seriously Ash has maybe 1 battle every episode how can that be fun?
    One other thing is that he is always the underdog and he always wins? What are the chanses of that? I have never seen him totally PWN someone its always a come from behind victory.

    Pokemon is the most succesful anime based on a videogame ever and its also the longest running animated airtime wise it surpasses simpsons and southpark. If they only made some tweaks the show would be a whole lot better.

    The show is not only battling. There's something called plot and it needs to be developed in all the episode. Watching battle after battle and after battle would be boring. I prefer a strong plot with at least one battle or 2 per episode.

    The only that is bugging me is Turtwig's personality. It's cute sometimes but other than that he bores me sometimes.

    And for some reason I learned to get used to Team Rocket, they still provide me some comedy here an there.

    Team Rocket make the show what it is, without it, pokémon would be totally different, though they are repetitive, that's just pokémon for you.

    Without them, also, there would be little to no comedy, and to be honest, I think it is one of the only things pokémon has going for it, especially James' comedy...

    Yeah you are right about james, he is the funniest guy in the show simply because he is a crossdressing hightalking spoiled blue haired thief. Got to love the variety... :P

    I actually prefer Jessie. I like her more. She's the one that is getting something more to do since she participates in contests.

    Without Team Rocket the show would be extremelly boring, the only funny thing would be Brock and Munchlax (Before DP).
    Something that bugs me is that all the characters should get more Pokémon as in the old days when Ash had to send Krabby, Snorlax, Tauros and Muk to Prof. Oak, nowdays they all (Ash, Brock...) get no more than about 5 Pokémon per Region which they keep in their party.

    Okay so we all agree Team Rocket is good for the show. Back on topic!

    What bugs me about the show is that Ash is constantly the underdog and never really kicks any *** and his overuse of the typical "Friendship conquers all, we can do it together" crap.

    Can't you deal with it? It's not perfect but it's enjoyable nontheless. Stop complaining and just watch the show for enjoyment.

    Yeah I guess the reviews went harsh in the beggining since they were devious and not blithering idiots

    Has nobody seen the battle where Ash fought Casey?
    Ash just left from winning the Orange League and went to Jhoto with a full team. (This was before his "fresh start" every region.)
    He used Charizard to beat her Chikorita, Pidgey, and Rattata without any effort. He also asked it to hold back a little at the end.
    I don't like how the girls Brock flirts with just sweat and say nothing.
    I still always laugh when he gets pulled, punched, or dragged away but it would be cool if they said something before he gets cut off. ( Something like "Awww, did you get that from a card?" or or "Your kidding right? Come back when your taller than me.")
    Also, Team Rocket can never leave. But it would be nice if Ash battled people besides them. He can earn all 8 badges and only battle 2 actual trainers.

    Well I don't know about y'all but the show doesn't seem funny to me, the only things that make me laugh is aipom, and croagunk. I'm sick and tired of Team Rocket, I would watch the show everyday if it was nothing but solid battling, i'm tired of these dumb plots. And when will we have another serious movie like the first one? When will we ever get the characters from the game back? There should be a hole new side-season just all about battling used past characters, if so I would espescially watch the show.

    #1. Team Rocket:
    They've been in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE SINCE EPISODE TWO. Not only that, but they insist on trying to capture Pikachu for some reason. Not just any random wild Pikachu they could easily catch themselves, nooo. They have to steal some stupid kid's Pikachu.

    #2. Ash:
    Fitting in with number one, Ash never really seems that annoyed with Team Rocket. Whenever they appear, its "Oh no, those guys again", and not "GOD DAMN IT, STOP FOLLOWING US" followed by a punch to the face. You'd think that after 500 episodes he'd either yell at them or at least ask them why they keep following him around.

    #3. Pikachu:
    Ash's Pikachu should be like level 80 now, and it keeps losing to novice trainers like Paul. Even if there aren't levels in the anime, Pikachu should at least be getting stronger than he was at the beginning.

    #4. Plot:
    Every single episode focuses around one or maybe two guest Pokémon that are only there for that episode and will most likely never appear again. It's like the freaking Simpsons, except people were actually interested for the first couple seasons of Pokémon.

    #5. 4Kids:
    4Kids sucks and Nintendo should never have let them translate and dub. But to be fair, Pokémon was their first dubbing, but they should've known better with Kirby, F-Zero and Sonic X.

    I have always asked myself the same thing except with every other Pokemon. But if they do capture Pikachu and give it to Giovanni(which they never will)it would be better than a random Pikachu cause it will be stronger

    Why would it? It's not like all those other anime that are based on manga (FMA, Bleach, One Piece), they're completely unrelated and is supposed to stay that way. Besides, there's more than one manga out there. What are they supposed to do?

    People like you complaining about the anime and no anime is perfect so I think pokemon is just fine the way it is.

    (WARNING: This post is labeled as "tl;dr". Proceed only if you won't fall to sleep while reading for a long period of time.)

    I can think of 15,000 situations (Over-exaggeration.) that made me want to stop watching. But the majority falls into these 2 categories.

    #1 in priority: The Battles

    This is the biggest problem I have with this show. Watching battle after battle that will absolutely not help you become better at battling makes me want to kill things. And if the battles are bad this show is bad. I mean seriously, what is Pokemon without the battles? The game would not be the game without the battles. The same SHOULD apply for the show.

    SERIOUSLY. Textbook moves, (How many Pokemon have Focus Punch?) NEVER A ONE SIDED BATTLE, (WHY?!??) the game doesn't matter at all to the writers, (A terrible mistake.) and nobody non-important EVER BATTLES ASH. (Maybe once in a while, but in 500 episodes, it's only happen around 20 times. That's 5%.) Watching a battle is like reading a Playboy magazine. Nobody cares about the articles (Battles.), most people are only here for the eyecandy. (The terrible, terrible truth I have come to realize.)

    And this is the opposite of what I like and what many people would believe Pokemon would do well. Face it guys, the battles suck hard. They might as well have no battles but rather just have their Pokemon dance and skip about in style. It'd be the same thing most likely.

    #2: Team Rocket

    ...ONCE IN A WHILE.....PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!

    I'm enjoying the show, and then Team Rocket shows up and I go back to my computer ignoring what happens next.

    The biggest problem I have with them is the fact they contribute to the problem above. However if you like Cacnea/Carnivine/Dustox/etc. , you're in luck. They'll appear over 9,000 times before they stop appearing.

    Another thing is that they are repetitive in what they do. Try to steal stuff using mechas (Because they loves using giant robots. It makes them feel good.) and fail. Forget about their failure tomorrow and try again. Their target is always a stupid yellow mouse. But honestly at this point they don't care. ...Actually it's kinda split between "do care" and "don't care." Again, they need to go away once in awhile. You'd think 500 thunderbolts among other things would put them in retirement...or at the very least give them a dang good vacation.

    Name me an episode in the previous 3 seasons Team Rocket has not appeared, and I'll give you as many cookies as I have. If what I'm hearing is true, then the statement below is true.

    "If you like Team Rocket, you'll like the show.

    However if you can't get used to Team Rocket, you'll never enjoy this show."

    ...People there has GOT to be a problem there.

    Ash is well...Ash pretty much. If problem #1 was fixed we'd see Ash actually battle pretty well. And what kind of role model Ash is if all he uses is a yellow mouse? Srsly, how many kids have you seen with a team that has a yellow mouse in it? BAD ROLE MODEL ALERT.

    It'd make me happy to see Team Rocket NOT appear, but right now I am praying that the battles will not suck. Forget TR, the battles in this show is the biggest problem in my eyes. Outclassing Team Rocket by a huge difference. I can tolerate Team Rocket, but I can't tolerate the viciously lame battles.

    @zeno48: Of course no anime is perfect. But there are good animes, and there are bad anime nobody wants to watch. Pokemon doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to stop sucking badly.
