Remake of one of my old threads, but more fleshed out. You can have negative opinions, but no bashing. You can also feel free to break it down to individual sagas.
For me, Pokémon is among the top, it has good music, good characters that are not cliche anime stereotypes, humor (it ain't Animaniacs, but it's funny), and doesn't have stupid, ridiculous deus ex machina after stupid DEM, and doesn't take itself too seriously. The only anime for me that beat Pokémon at its best are YYH and Rurouni Kenshin.
If Pokémon isn't one of your favorites, what aspects do you think it beats other anime in?
BONUS QUESTION: For those who don't like at least one of the sagas, where would you rank each other one? (Can include Kanto, OI, Johto, Hoenn, etc.)
