I still like the show myself, but I feel it's just not as awesome as it used to be, that's all. I mean, sure, any series faces criticism over a long duration of time, and it does make sense that the creators will try to target the target demographic (children). That's understandable. It's that it hasn't really progressed over the years that I think many fans are saddened by. I guess we tend to want the series to evolve into something greater and something more powerful, when it really hasn't.

I feel the earlier arcs have something much more genuine to them, though (it could be because I grew up with them, though).

"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
