Yeah, just about. But it has high production values and is an interesting ontological mystery. Don't misunderstand, I'm not trying to talk anyone into watching it, but those were the things that caught my attention. I thought about reading the manga to, like, continue the story, but the art style is just... bad. Yeah, that's a tactful way to put it. It's very bad. I couldn't do it.Someone I know described that show as being basically a glorified zombie apocalypse show. I never could get on with it, and I flinch whenever I see anyone on Tumblr talk about its social progressiveness (i.e. Mikasa and Hanji), because most of that was done better by earlier shows. But, you know, that's a fringe series that nobody would know about.
I dunno, I liked it. I thought the pokemon had good designs, the region was large and varied, and Cyrus was an interesting villain (not as compelling as N or Ghetsis, on par with Maxie and Archie, and above the rest. Lysandre was a weaksauce knockoff of Cyrus IMO). Oh, and the musical score was really nice. I will say though, that the slow battle pacing was god awful and made nuzlocking a drag.Also, I have never played Platinum, but Diamond was probably the worst mainline Pokemon game I've ever played.
