    I only watch the show when I run out any good anime to watch.

    I originally stopped towards the end of Johto/beginning of AG. I got back into it in late AG and the BF, and saw a good bit of DP's start (the first fifty or so episodes). I started watching DP again around DP100, and have been watching continuously since then. I really don't know why I still watch the anime. :/

    So the most important parts of the show, then.

    I haven't seen Best Wishes yet because I heard it wasn't that great but I have to admit, I'm kinda tempted to start watching again. If only for old times sake :3

    I stopped watching between the 7th and 8th gym in DP. I lost interest because the saga was becoming a drag. When I heard BW would be starting, I decided to check it out and I loved it mainly because of Iris, so here I am still watching the anime.

    I'm also mature enough now that I don't think about whether I'm too old to be watching pokemon. As long as I enjoy the show I'm watching, I don't care what others think.

    I stopped watching after the Indigo league. I watched some of the orange islands, but I stopped almost completely when Johto came. I returned to watching the show back when Japan was already running the Battle Frontier. But I got to watch all the episodes of Hoenn because I went back and really enjoyed that saga. I watched through Hoenn, BF and D/P. I sort of stopped watching after Team Galactic's final episode. And I haven't watched any episodes of B/W.

    A wise choice.

    I'm seriously surprised to learn this, though. I've seen you post in Anime Spoilers recently, so I assumed you still watched the anime. Anyway, I'm glad that people haven't targeted you; when I mentioned that I stopped watching BW, people attacked me and told me to stop posting, which was very rude. I still look at the episode pictures and I read the summaries, so I still understand what's going on. I hate that people think everyone has to watch the actual anime in order to contribute to the conversation.

    ^yeah as if they even know what's fully going on lol unless of course they actually truly understand Japanese. The rest of them lie. :3

    I mean just because you stop watching the anime, doesn't mean you're not entitled to look at previews and summaries. You just don't have any reason to watch the episode. Rude people.

    I'm a true Ash fan and won't stop even if the Pokemon series does mistakes every once in a while.

    I never stopped watching and I never will. Even though I don't like BW at all, I'll keep on watching and hoping for better sagas... I just can't stand the thought of actually stopping watching Pokemon... Pokemon is sacred to me and I'll watch, in both good and in bad times!

    I stopped watching sometime after Veilstone Gym but I came back during Candice's Gym so yeah it was a short while, I rewatched all of DP later because I missed a lot of episode lacking out of interest..

    The DP saga was certainly a drag/borefest for me in its original run. but after I rewatched all of the eps subbed I gotta say it was good.

    I sometimes check out a episode or two that has a character I want to see animated like a certain gym leader or a returning character and most of my anime post deal with AG, DP, Johto, and OS, but other then that I don't follow the series loyally like I did in DP. Truthfully if it wasn't for DP's storytelling I would have dropped the series then too, but I got interested enough to continue for one more region with Sinnoh. After that I knew I was on borrowed time with the Pokemon anime series. I just don't enjoy the endless loop and repeating itself over and over with the same main character to boot. The sad thing is I don't even know who half the cast is anymore. When I hear the names "Luke" or "Stephan" I kid you not, I do not even know who they are or what they look like.

    I've been watching since the beginning. There were times I wanted to stop but I always felt that stopping would be like watching the second to last episode of a series wanting to know the final outcome. And sitting their thinking about it, the series in my opinion has had its ups and downs, but I know eventually be it 1 year or even 20 years the series will have an outcome, wheather I stop watching before that outcome is probably best left until the day it happens

    Never, whether i'm 28 or 58 I love the simplicity of the show, and its a link, one of the last, to my childhood.

    Hell I just like the show.

    I stopped watching the Anime for quite awhile back around Gen III during my cold turkey period (long story why that happened, but let's just say it was provoked). Granted, I watch it now. But I couldn't tell you a single thing past the halfway point of Advanced. To this day, I don't even know where Ash ranked in that League.

    Provoked by whom?

    As for me, I've really fallen behind on Best Wishes. I think I've only watched about 40% of the saga. I missed a lot of episodes in the beginning after the TR arc was skipped.

    I haven't really stopped watching, but I've been fading in and out lately. Summaries, pics, and previews have been my source for info on the newer episodes, though occasionally I'll tune in whenever a character I like shows up or the story arc/animation is exceptionally good.

    I stopped watching it consistently around 2005, I think. I still watch the first few episodes of each new generation to see if the show has changed it's formula (it never really does).

    Every now and then, I check Serebii to see any developments when it comes to new badges or Pokemon that Ash and his friends catch/evolve though.
