So I've been checking out some forums and felt this was an interesting topic people brought up.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the Pokemon Anime Series as a whole and whether you feel it has 1) gone/is going downhill, 2) is going uphill, or 3) the same as always.
I have to say, IMO, the show has gone downhill since it began overall to me (again, that's just me, feel free to share if you disagree). It's still enjoyable, but not as good as it used to be to me for a multitude of reasons.
The main ones in my case are the following:
1) Replacing characters without them reaching their goals (and changing some goals of former main cast members, writing them off poorly).
2) English Dub VA Switch is annoying to me, and the replacement VAs aren't as good as the originals are in my eyes (hated the VAs changing).
3) Regression of Ash's Character in the BW series (pro to this is that his personality has returned, though).
4) Negligence of Characters (DP: Brock; BW: TRio)
