May's Torchic reminds me a lot of Iris's Axew watching older episodes, unfortunately Axew might not get the blessing of evolution. Though Axew is at least more competent and capable a battler than Torchic. I wasn't fond of Blaziken as a Pokemon either, but still I really liked Combusken and was overall glad Blaziken reached its final form. May was the first girl with a powerhouse during her run. Torchic moveset was awful iirc, Peck, Ember, and Quick Attack. Very poor.Anyway, talking about the girls:
- I actually wasn't so fond about May's Torchic evolving, yes, in AG times, it's moveset was .... awful, and yes, it was a "symbol" of her "maturity" and blah blah blah but I don't really like Blaziken as a Pokémon
- I didn't liked May's team as a whole, too ... Bulbasaur was a nice twist and promoted FR/LG, but Munchlax, Squirtle and Eevee were too much, I mean, the "Hoenn Princess" just had 3 Hoenn Pokémon, the rest were Kanto and Sinnoh Pokémon
Munchlax was for DP, Squirtle and Bulbasaur were FRLG, Eevee was for DP and FRLG with Eevee being a popular Pokemon and evolving into Glaceon. I thought they were all handled better than Dawn's Ad Pokemon for the most part. Mamoswine, Cyndaquil, and Togekiss all had their flaws and Buneary and Pachirisu(And Cyndaquil) were largely stagnate. Piplup was just overused and had a taxing personality.
So many discussions about DP vs. BW... :/
I honestly find AG the best series so far. This seems an unpopular opinion, since the AG fans are so rare nowadays.

Which is strange considering that AG didn't have much in common with BW and had more in common with DP. I thought DP fans and AG fans tended to cluster together.
Wait, people actually like Oshawott?

I am a DP fan but I enjoy BW just not as much. I must say Ag is more least favorite but that is only becasue I am that rare person that enjoyed Johto lol.
My 3DS Friend Code is: 4141-3174-0404
The very beginning of Johto while Ash still has Charizard and Squirtle is OK, and late Master Quest is pretty good.
Its really just the entire middle of Johto that's a mess, but there was the occasional good filler mostly about Team Rocket. I think the Team Rocket based fillers were the best ones in Johto, especially the Wobbufett episodes.
[QUOTE=Pokemaniac24;15978682]This is not an unpopular opinion at all, Fer.[/QUOTE
It's because sometimes the limit between a popular and a unpopular is thin and subjective.
Another unpopular opinion:
Misty has the most absolute popular girls on the pokemon only because this is the girl during the "fad" of Pokemon. And in the fad, pokemon was way more popular than after the "fad".
May and Dawn (and maybe Iris) has more relative popularity than Misty, at least in Japan, with this order: Dawn > May > Iris > Misty.
I think that Iris is the least popular female of the history of the for three reasons:
-Because the character isn't the best to represent the games.
-Because Iris is a sidekick and not a co-star, specially in BW1.
-Because Best Wishes is more unpopular than Diamond and Pearl (Ratings).
And a XY predictions unpopular opinion:
-I think that the outfit of the XY character is similar to the BW character. Many people pointed that. Because this:
-I think that Ash WON'T change their BW outfit in the transition between BW and XY.
-I am sure that Ash will dip the team for XY. But with Oshawott I have more doubts.
-I think that the only way that I can be sure (and even with this) that Oshawott won't be in XY is bringing Piplup back (with the trainer and the goal). Very rare but I see the anime doing many things that they shouldn't do for being up ratings. Games ==/== Anime.
-I think that Axew is too unpopular for being a mascot pokemon*. Sorry, but I checked merchandise and the main things that I see are Pikachu, Eevee, Eeveelutions (with Sylveon as the leader), Genesect, Mewtwo, Oshawott, Charizard.
*I consider that Axew, given the masoct status, should be the second pokemon in merchandise. But I think that Axew is the 10th-20th depending of the promotion. And I think that Piplup (the previous mascot) has more popularity than Axew "right now" (and we know who is and who isn't in the show).
I don't see why it matters who likes Iris or not. Characters last as long as their generation, she's only short lived because the 5th gen was rushed in general in the games. Coming out at the end of the DS was what screwed this gen over.
I still can't get over the fact that Brock was in the anime for 13 years...sans the small Orange Islands saga. Brock had no business being around for so long as he's not Ash (marketing tool) or Team Rocket (writers crutches).

Such a heating debate
More unpopular (?) opinions from me:
- DA had a really bad opening
Yes Pokemon isn't known for it's great openings but DA's one is a new low IMO. Although I disliked the other two openings (though the first one was pretty good in animations, and interesting) in BW, I really can't bring myself to like the DA one. I'm not sure if I have too high standards for openings, or I am spoiled by other animes' openings, or maybe I just like male singers lol.
- Spurt isn't the best opening in Pokemon history
While others might be screaming and yelling, I personally don't think Spurt is the best opening in Pokemon history. In fact, I loved OI openings because I grew up with them, liked AG openings, favoured the second & third DP openings. Full opening of Spurt isn't too impressive, actually.
Credits to Sworn Metalhead
brock at his lowest was still better than Cilan IMO.
Heck, Seto Kaiba appeared in Yugioh GX without the presence of the main character. I know that's different but still.
RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
