    A unpopular opinion thread? Well I will fit right in here. My unpopular opinions are kinda obvious though.

    1: I want all old characters gone by the time XY anime airs. In my opinion I think it's time. Pokemon just repeats itself over and over again, they should take a chance an really reboot it with a new cast with new stories and a new history to breath actual new fresh air into the show. Even if 100% new characters fail they still have the games to fall back on and save themselves. That's just my opinion and it's highly unpopular.
    2: After rewatching AG and DP I can finally say without a doubt I enjoyed Dawn's contest run more then May's. I use to find them equal due to their flaws and junk but really watching the two, I enjoyed Dawn's more simply because the writers actually made Dawn a rookie that loses and was never anything special compared to May. I enjoyed it more. Still love May though.
    3: I also like Zoey, one of the most unpopular rivals in the show. She wasn't wonderful but she entertained me more then Drew. Another highly unpopular opinion.
    4: I'm not a fan of Ash getting all three starters. I loved it in Kanto but beyond that...please no. This is not that unpopular though.
    5: I liked that Ash didn't have a rival in AG. Really it made him look so much better/wiser without a rival constantly making him look like a whiny child.
    6: I support character replacing. True I wish we had a Chronciles series for old characters to have a home so it would please their fans but the writers don't care that much for old fans.
    7: I wasn't found of DP Ash and his Sinnoh team that much. Only like Gliscor, and few others really impressed me. Many say this was the best Ash and his best team. IMO both were in AG.

    That's pretty much it for now. I have more but cannot think of any of them at the moment.

    Johto and Best Wishes are my two least favorite arcs, honestly.

    However that's not to say I dislike everything about them, I like the highlights of both, but they're not as entertaining as the other sagas to me.

    I like Pokemon Best Wishes highly because of its charaters, rivals besides Trip and Virgel, the Pokemon themselves and team rocket

    I'm not sure if this is unpopular or not, but I cannot stand Sarah Natochenny's voice acting. I've seen in interviews that she's a perfectly nice woman, I just find her delivery makes Ash come across as obnoxious and almost gives him Jaden Yuki syndrome.

    Also, I found Trip to be the most enjoyable character in Best Wishes, mostly because he was the only one to get a consistent, logical character arc.

    -I actually really enjoy the entire Pokemon Series as a whole and think people pick way too much at little things that don't really make the show "bad"
    -I like when ash doesn't get the 3 regional starters. it makes his team a bit too predicable since he gets the regional generic bird, and then 3 starters leaving his team open to 1 "wildcard" (unless they take the BW route, which hasn't been done before)

    I love Iris pokes Axew,Excadrill and Emonga but hate how they 've got neglected.

    I miss contests and an active main girl character.

    I love hate Oshawott,he desperaetly needs to evolve.

    DP was the best anime series despite the trooling finish Ash and Dawn got.

    Personally I think Boldore is an amazing cast member because of Ash's team simply due to how good he was when he was a Roggenrola and I hope he continues to strive in the upcoming episodes. Palpitoad is severely underatted, while he may have the least screen time, at the same time he is probably tied with Krookodile as Ash's powerhouse. Plus his battles were all good in my opinion. And last but not least I didn't really care who is casting the characters at the moment or the past, when watching TV shows, I look for more than just voices, I search DVD development, plot, and other parts that make a TV show good.

    Unpopular opinions!? Herw we go!

    -I feel that the League was a bad written league. This isn't a unpopular opinion. But who is a unpopular opinion is that I liked the league until Ash vs Stephan if we didn't know the crap last battle.

    -I like that Ash was regressed in placement on this league (NOT the way of losing) and I don't mind being worse than Sinnoh at all.

    -I'm closer to the little kids of Japan and I prefer cute pokemon as opposed of evolved pokemon completely. I prefer Oshawott in the anime as opposed of Samurott, I find Eevee too cute, etc.

    -I don't mind having too unevolved pokemon on the main cast at all if it's for merchandise reasons. However, if they aren't evolving, they act like it had evolved in serious battles (and I don't see that in the most part).

    -I completely prefer DP TRio as opposed to BW TRio. I salso slightly like BW TRio but I find them very boring.

    -I hate the "secret" hints of that the episodes TR vs TP are airing one day when it isn't happening. Also, I hate saying that the BW series was hurt because those episodes becaused i feel that those people donp't know about what delayed those episodes.

    -Zoey was one of the best rivals that the show has ever had. And I like a mentor as one of the rivals of a character.

    -I liked all of BW rivals except Cameron, and that's because of the crap battle VS Ash.

    -I liked the Tournaments. Specially the chemistry between the characters on those.

    -My best chemistry is Ash vs Dawn and not Ash vs Misty.

    -Edite to to not misunderstnad things: I hate the opinions where they put something from another canon to justify that the anime was horrible. I hate comparison between that B2W2 trailer and the Pokemon anime. Although I will like a mini-series targetted to the older part of the game target audience, I hate any comparison with the main anime, specially those depective comparison between the two.

    -And I would have liked that the BW Quartet (yes, the same as the first episode of Season 2 would turn out to be permanent if Ash would have only got six badges by then. I know that Dawn's team would be Piplup, Buneary? and Pokemon A, B, ... The reason of this that I liked Contests, I missed them, I like Dawn too much, etc. And I would have liked the possibilities of a Trainer Coordinator (mainly Bianca), and contest where Dragon Masters Coordinators and Connoseiur Coordinator appears with Georgia and Burgundy taking part in it.

    In my opinion, I didn't like that Charmeleon evolved into Charizard. Charmeleon is flatout my favorite pokemon, so getting to see it only so few episodes on Ash's team was very disappointing, while Charizard gets all the love in the world, while I find it's design, less..

    I'm pretty sure that's a highly unpopular opinion.

    Also, I cried during Russell Crowe's Robin Hood... It was just that manly and bro'ish.. I kinda think I may have been the only dude in the world to have shed tears at that one.. :P

    marioluigifan05's unpopular opinions (REVISED):

    There's nothing special about Palpitoad, at least in my opinion.
    I don't think Ash's outfit needed to change. Nothing was wrong with the old one to me.
    Sewaddle (not Swadloon or Leavanny) is Ash's best BW Pokemon.
    Cilan is not that great, he's basically Ruby (from Pokemon Adventures), but more flanderized. Tracey, and even AG/DP Brock > him. He's not awful, though, just not my cup of tea.
    May is not the best female companion, though I can see why others would think so.
    Infernape and Dawn are a bit whiny, though I suppose they're not the whiniest ones of all time.
    I don't like the idea of "fresh start" (by that, I mean Ash oaking all his other Pokemon). I just find it weird that he assembles a team, and then dumps them at the end of a region. It might not bother me as much, if he didn't get attacked by Team Rocket (even after that, he doesn't learn). I hope he doesn't do the same for XY.
    Not so much unpopular in other sites, but it is here: OS > All. Other sagas are just as good, just not in my opinion.
    Although I like Ash's old traveling companions, bringing them back will not automatically make this show good (though it would be awesome!). This show has more (and bigger) things to get out of the way first..
    Paul is NOT a good rival, he's way too one-dimensional and poorly handled. He's a good trainer, though, so that more than makes up for it (not to me, personally, but to others).
    Paul vs Ash (6-2) was worse than Cameron vs Ash (5-6), circumstances aside. Both of them were epic, though!
    Female companions: Misty > Iris = BW2 Dawn > DP Dawn > May
    Male companions: OS Brock > Tracey > AG/DP Brock > Cilan

    I HATE Dawn and Clian, but I don't mind Iris.
    I also didn't like DP after Ash got his 7th Badge.
    I like TR in BW, because at the end of AG and throughout DP, I felt sorry for them, because Giovanni didn't even know who they were.
    I like Unfezant. Why does it get so much hate? It's not her fault she doesn't get used!

    In my opinion:
    - I think BW season is better than DP season: In BW, writers are actually thinking outside the box and trying new plots apart from "TR-is-always-the-cause-or-solution-of-all-the-problems", DP was only an AG bad redux.
    - May, Iris and Cilan are Ash´s best companions: May evolved from being a spoiled little princess to an experienced coordinator, many people could think that she getting through all the appeal rounds was cheap, but May always showed to be a very creative girl, Iris shows that you don´t need to come across with Ash to start your journey or becoming an experienced trainer, Cilan is not repetitive, is more active and conserves his dignity, and most important, he actually BATTLES and supports his knowledge in the battlefield.
    - Gary > Trip > Paul: Gary will always be THE rival, even if he only had 2 battles against Ash, he knew how to push his buttons and make him react like a normal person would, Trip has an interesting back story, Paul was just a rival.
    - Cilan > Tracey > Brock: I exposed my opinion about Cilan above, but I think Tracey was more interesting and useful than Brock using his Pokémon abilities to benefit the gang without the need of a battle, Brock overstayed his welcome after Clefairy and the Moon Stone.
    - Ash should have left after Orange Islands: The more episodes he gets, the more screwed he gets, writers don´t know what to do with him anymore.
    - Misty has the best team (except Togepi): I was kinda surprised when I read complains about the lack of variety in Misty´s team but come on, she wants to be a Water Master, it was just logical she had a mostly Water-type team, and the detail of having both Staryu and Starmie was really cool, but I would prefer a Marill hatched from the egg instead of Togepi.
    - May has the best rivals and character development: Drew and Harley were far more interesting than Kenny and Zoey, Ursula just came in too late.
    - Wobbufet - Lickitung trade was a mistake: In a point where Team Rocket were becoming an annoying pest, the least thing they needed was having another mascot apart of Meowth, and Lickitung single handled even Pikachu in that princess thing.
    - Hoenn League > Unova League > Sinnoh League: In Hoenn League, all the Pokémon had an equal distribution and it wasn´t filled of big overused powerhouses, Unova League had all that excellent characters interaction that has been characteristic of the Best Wishes season with all the potential contenders watching each other matches.
    - Ash´s Hoenn team is his best team: People overrates Ash´s Sinnoh team just because all the evolutions, but Hoenn team was balanced and all had an adequate development.

    My Opinions
    -I wouldn't mind if Brock stayed for BW
    I liked Brock again after watching a few DP episodes. No matter how "boring" he may seem. I actually liked his presence overall and I wouldn't mind if he had stayed for BW.
    -Piplup was one of the best thing that happened in DP
    I love Piplup with a passion. For me, Piplup made many episodes interesting. I also love how cute, marketable Pokemon like Piplup was handed to Dawn rather than Ash so that Ash could actually evolve his team :P
    -I didn't feel that DP was "too long"
    Mainly because I love the cast and Piplup :3
    -Zoey was a good rival
    No, she's not "bland" and Mary-sue. To me, Ash should have a Zoey-esque rival rather than the cliche cocky, arrogant rival that has been overused.
    -DP TR > BW TR
    No exactly an unpopular opinion, but yeah, people have been calling DP TR nasty stuff. I actually like their comedy over the serious one. I mean, being comedic gives entrance into movies. I was disappointed when TR only made a cameo in the Keldeo movie... without even shwoing their faces...

    Oh boy from where to start?

    1.)I thought Johto saga was fairly decent and personally i never really understood fuss this series are getting. When i watched it for first time i enjoyed in majority of episodes, main cast and TR antics and even today there are arcs and episodes i always like to go back and watch being incredibly enjoyable. Admittedly there did existed lack of direction in which characters and story would be taken with removal of GS bvall plot doing more harm than good.

    But as whole gym battles and battling in general was improved (highlights were Clair, Pryce and Morty gym matches).
    There were several mini-arcs which happened to be fantastic imo like Whirl islands being crowned with Whirl Cup tournament which offered quite a lot of development for Misty and her career of becoming water master. Team Rocket as organization started to be more threatening influencing story to more significant degree which can be noticed with Red Gyarados arc which brought Lance, or Lugia storyline with dr. Namba.
    And while it may had lot of fillers several of them were actually enjoyable and very memorable for me being one of best episodes in history and interacting between group was still great with Ash, Misty and Brock bringing lot of humor ad fun dynamic on several occasions.

    Looking back i actually feel Johto had more lighthearted humor and vibrant dynamic than successor series contained afterwards.
    And i liked concept of this saga being treated as direct sequel to Kanto and OI with Ash not starting from scratch building up on his team and skills as trainer. Instead of resetting and going backwards.

    Since there was present build up on friendship between Ash and traveling companions becoming more close and familiar with both their qualities and flaws , strengthening their bond further since Kanto days. . And because of same cast there existed connection to past sagas Ash traveled through with several references and return of past individuals(like Aya, Todd Snapp, Duplica, Ritchie) strengthening idea of having entity formulated anime.

    2.)I don't necessarily share same view of "May and Dawn being best handled females in pokemon" with quantity not necessarily following quality.
    Writing about their careers and story was without doubt handled better , but in character sense i think Misty was more deep and complex as character having highly wide and diverse specter of emotions she expressed finding right balance between hotheaded and girly side.
    She had imo one of most believable growths character went through in show gradually growing in mature, independent person through friends help, as well stronger trainer coming long way since early days when she just wanted to run away from sister shadow being full of insecurity and self doubts. While keeping qualities which makes her enjoyable still being sarcastic, brash and adventurous adding fresh note to it along with lot of fresh potential waiting to be took forward.

    3.) Maybe its just me but i also find Sinnoh saga to be extremely overrated. Aside from better treatment of rivals and villains theres nothing about this region which stand out for me compared to others. It had weak characterization and interactions between main cast imo, it lacked humor with comedy aspect often feeling contrived and one dimensional lacking that subtle cleverly designed dialogue previous sagas had. Contest and gym quest dragged on for longer than it was needed with writers wasting too much time on training for appeals for my taste, instead of utilizing extra focus they had on their hands for development of other characters and rivals. Like Brock, Kenny or Nando.

    Not to mention i didn't found battles from Sinnoh to be so much spectacular and superior compared to other sagas like many say with AG , Johto and BW having many great battles too. .

    Looking back i feel it was mistake to cram everything in 4 years, when filler arc would be much more helpful to maintain steam DP achieved in first half of its run.

    4.) I don't support cast changes, because in my eyes it only promotes dispersed continuity, shallow storyline and discourage fans from growing attached to characters since its known from start how they will end up forgotten after they leave anyway.

    Personally i don't see any point in constantly getting new companions which will end up replaced halfway unfinished anyway, when previous ones have more than enough potential to expand upon.
    And with that line of thought in mind i would rather want that writers actually do build up on already established character and his story doing new, fresh things like Misty, May, Dawn etc. Since they already have background and developed story to pick up and work upon.
    That would be more unpredictable and bring new twist to pokemon series than constantly bringing new ones which don't bring anything new which previous companions couldn't really(aside from different face) for me.

    Looking back i feel it was mistake to cram everything in 4 years, when filler arc would be much more helpful to maintain steam DP achieved in first half of its run.

    Which is terrible move to make both from marketing and popularity standpoint if you ask me. Its disrespecting both toward characters and anime history eroding foundations on which series popularity was build, damage its reputation through bad word of mouth and aleniates viewers from anime failing to maintain watcher loyalty.

    Togepi did Misty's character quite significant harm
    It turned her from a skilled Gym Leader who actually worked towards her goals into a mother. There was no reason for Togepi to stay in her arms for as long as it did. Phanpy was in a pokeball by the end of the day it hatched, and it didn't do it any harm. Togepi acted like a drain on Misty's power, and never was that more apparent than in Movie 3 when Misty takes on Molly and we get a reminder of what she used to be (Brock too, but I can't blame his problems on Togepi).
    Personally i never had any problem with it, but i agree how Togepi not evolving or battling back than was one big missed opportunity which could have been great addition to her team allowing to be more active. Instead most of time it was useless barely doing much which was mistake.

    On positive side i guess Togepi played some role in Misty characterization being step toward maturity in future, growing in nice blend of spunky and playful yet more independent character at end of Master Quest and chronicles.

    Granted Misty didn't received enough focus and growth during her run, but i wouldn't necessarily say how that was Togepi but more writers fault and result of wrongly set priorities. Either way she was still notably active, memorable character imo and i don't think she was turn in "inactive mother which just stood aside". Especially when she was very eager about achieving her water master goal in Johto receiving more focus on her story there, distinctively during Whirl Islands. She battled, brought humor and good chemistry within group, had her own dreams, coached and mentored Ash along with influencing plot on several occasions in Orange islands and Johto. More than she did in Kanto if you ask me.

    -More, I don't mind the Plasma being short. Not that I expected it but it isn't like the Plasma plot alone could take the spot until October.

    -I have been preferred a PWT filler saga than Episode N fo the remainder of BW. Because that would be a good way to show Ash's reserves. Also, I would have liekd a cameo pf past rivals like Paul.

    -Although I liked Paul battles, I don't like too much Paul's personality. At least it was more interested than Trip.

    -The reason why I prefer the DP TRio than the BW TRio are that I felt OOC that The TRio are doing mission like the Meteonite or Project Tempest. I think that the 2-partner are decent at least but the episodes where they are searching information are horrendous.

    -I think that Dawn's showcase of her pokemon in her cameo wasn't that bad. The only pokemon ewho really did nothing was Togekiss. Piplup is everywhere, Buneary and Pachirisu acted in her presentation, Quilava and Mamoswine. Also, I think that she has been starred in more episodes than...

    -... Cilan in 29 episodes. And if the epsidoes until the 14th March doesn't showcase Cilan as the star he would have almost 20 episodes without screentime. I love Cilan's antics in BW1 but in BW2 Cilan is very boring.

    Here I go from what I've watched:

    -I thought Team Magma and Team Plasma had the best leader
    -I thought Team Galactic had the best staff (not leader)
    -I like Team Rocket's blast offs, just not in every scene featuring them.
    -I liked the Pokemon league.
    -I like the anime better in english
    -I liked the contests
    -I don't care alot for Ash's traveling companions
    -I don't get the rage with Charizard
    -I like the TRio having a goofy side
    -I like female characters who are girly and embrace it
    -I thought Zager was the best TR member
    -I don't care for Pierce(TR)

    Actually, since Ghetsis is one of my favorite leaders in the games, I figured since he was going to be the anime that he was going to keep his character.
