The new rival from BW2, Hugh, definitely was a bit generic and bland and his modus operandi was just boring, the whole Chroneko thing wasn't really interesting. N has a nice design, but it's nothing if he isn't interesting in the anime. Not that I'm saying that, but still I hope he's portrayed exceptionally. I'm positive Cheren would have had a million fangirls fawning over him if he was a bishounen, regardless he will seemingly have personality and a nice plot with being his BW2 self so I'm happy about his appearance regardless. I hope N is portrayed nicely as well.

    I always did think Shooti was a Cheren stand-in, just like Shinji was a Silver stand-in.
    They are my favourites too but I know how to diferentiate things.

    I think Shooti took Cheren story, Shinji had nothing to do with Silver though, not story, not personality, not the design.

    Are we sure Ash is battling N? For all we know Ash could be battling someone else with Pika and N could be watching

    There's a fact: N is very loved. He has more fans than any anti-hero or villain in the pokemon franchise ever got. The fangirls usually only give a damn to the protagonists or certain gym leaders. He broke the rule and for the first time a villainous team got proper attention...because he was there.

    I'm not going to lie, I like him. But it's a generic like, not a fangirl love. I'm glad to see him in a season named after him, but he is not my favorite character. I used to like him more, but perhaps he just got too much attention just because he's hot and I grew tired of that. To be blunt, I like the Shadow Triad much more.

    People tend to like characters just because of their looks. Indeed, it helps but it's not everything. There's fugly characters around but they are excellent. Cheren in BW had a nice development but people hated him because he is a nerd. In BW2 he turned handsome and people started to love him JUST because of that. Period. Like Colress, people like him cuz of his crazy hair. Or the Subway Masters, he did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared with others characters and yet they are overrated like hell just....because of their outfits and being twins, nothing else. We don't even know their personalities.

    Well this N from Best Wishes seems based from his self of BW2 where he became more open minded. Perhaps people think of him more boring because his role in the sequels is very brief and we never learned what exactly he did during these two years of absence. But ya know, sequels are VERY difficult to make cuz it's hard to meet the expectations from the prequel. That's why many times sequels end up poorer, for the most opinion of the fandom I mean.

    I agree with Hugh was kinda of irritating for not getting development at all and bragging always for the same stuff. Yet...fangirls love him cuz he's....dunno, cute? XD

    I liked Cheren's development (as anyone who's beaten the Elite Four can relate to) and his B/W look... didn't care for his B2/W2 look...

    Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.

    Having glasses = Nerd.

    Oh and lets not forgot that most people around here probably fit that bill better then Cheren.

    Why do I find Iris and Axew yonks more bearable when they speak Japanese?

    Because the Japanese voices are both better and fits more well. ^^

    Because japanese voice actors know what they're doing. If only PUSA put more effort into the dub-_-

    I actually don't think Iris and Axew's dub voices are bad. I could see why people would find Iris' voice annoying but the thing about her voice that I like is she actually sounds like a little girl which is what she is. Look at Paul for example. The dude's voice was good for an adult but for an 11 (or was it 10?) year old, it's way too deep.

    And you know to most of us here all we hear is random gibberish interspersed with tidbits of repeated dialogue picked up from lots of practice watching subbed anime and the engrish moves. Like WARUVIAL! STONE EDGEO!

    PUSA is always messing up with the voice acting. There's a reason why Ash sounds more mature in Japanese than he does in the dub, it's because PUSA doesn't care for quality. You can take an emotional Japanese scene and expect PUSA to reason it with their voice acting and removal of background music.

    I think they are actually decent in BW. I get the complaints with the beginning of Battle Frontier and even DP (Barry sounds awful) but I like the BW voices. Maybe that's just me though.

    I didn't know sleepwalking through your role three quarters of the time if not more qualifies as knowing what you're doing.

    Watch the dub of the Victini movies and tell me no effort was put into that.

    You just described PUSA's voicing acting. And btw, I said 'more effort'.
