Favorite Pokemon Anime Series
I was just curious as to what series people have found the most enjoyable thus far for them, and just a few reasons why they do.
Please, no claiming a serious is automatically superior to another, because everyone has different opinions on what they enjoy and it's important to be mindful of those opinions. The Pokemon fanbase really seems to be one that has so many varied opinions and it's interesting to see how each of us have different preferences for the way we feel the anime series is best.
I'll be putting up a poll and you guys can vote and go ahead and tell me what anime series you like the most.
I'll start: I'm at a tie between the Original Series and the Advanced Generation series. I felt the best aspect of these two series was that each member of the main cast was always given a decent amount of screentime overall in comparison to the Diamond and Pearl series as well as the Best Wishes series. Furthermore, I felt that they work well and complement each other, seeming like a fluid transition from Part I to Part II. That kind of continuity is present in Advanced Generation to Diamond and Pearl series, but seems very lost in the transition from DP to BW, as I see it. I also liked the characters introduced in the first two anime series more because their personalities seemed so..distinctive and unique at the time.
It's all subjective, of course, so comment below and tell me what you think!
"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- OS Ash, ESS
