    FANDOM: "What the actual f*ck, why are you changing things? WE HATE CHANGE!!"
    Because this change isn't what people had in mind.
    Plus, it doesn't solve the issues with the main anime.
    No Pokémon is cuter than Eevee.

    But if we say "we want change", how are the anime writers supposed to know exactly what we mean and create it while still appealing to as many of the fanbase members as possible?

    Also, this movie wasn't meant to solve issues, it was supposed to be a celebration of the anime.

    Are people still complaining about this when the mods posted warnings a couple of times already not to **** post with the same complaints?

    Anyways I hope we get a full battle between Ash and Cross in this.

    If SM is a rip off of Yokai Watch, then XY/Z is a very poor ripoff of shonen anime like Naruto

    There are literally decades worth of articles, blog posts, forum threads, Facebook/Twitter posts, memes and videos of people discussing and laying out what they think should be changed with the anime. The production staff have just chosen to ignore them for 20 years and counting now.

    Mew has an exclusive Z-move that needs to be shown off at some point or another, so like it or not, we are going to see Mew in another movie. It might not be the star Pokémon of the movie, but it will be in another movie. Either that, or it will show up in the anime proper to show off its Z-move.

    I'm probably alone on this, but I'd rather have this only be one kinda long movie, rather than multiple ones with the same length as an average Pokemon movie. What firstrought me back to this movie after dismissing it was the concept of a reboot that got a beginning, middle and end in one go, just like other standalone movies. The fact that I wouldn't have to treat it as a trilogy or extension of another series made it feel refreshing somewhat. I can't really explain the feeling that well, but I just want this to remain in movie 20 alone.
    I have a feeling this movie will be a standalone movie, especially if it's just meant to be an anniversary movie.

    It just makes little sense to me coming as pointless.
    Because maybe this movie is just meant to be an anniversary movie, separate from the main anime and its accompanying movies, as a celebration of the anime as a whole. It's not as though this has any effect on the main anime and anything that's unfinished in the main anime.

    Yes, because the staff should take every single suggestion there is and make this anime worse than it already is.

    Most of the fandom suggestions are complete crap.

    Yup. I hoped that they would do something special for the 20th anniversary.

    Remember, we still have a Mew with a special Z-move. They could easily extend this and create a new universe and have movie 21 set in Kanto/Johto with Mew focus.
    This is a 20th anniversary special, so idk...
    I mean, they are gonna have to make movies about the Alola squad.

    Yeah, and making a standalone Pokemon movie is special.

    True, if you try to please everyone you end up in a The Miller, Boy and Donkey situation but completely ignoring criticisms, suggestions and praise on what you do well from your audience isn't a good idea either. The most common complaints I've seen on here and elsewhere are the anime's lack of continuity, never letting the characters progress in any meaningful way and too much filler and those seem like issues the anime production staff could attempt to rectify without a large risk of alienating viewers.

    Is anyone really going to complain about things like Ash winning a League or occasional appearances from old companions that follow up on their goals instead copy and paste filler episodes of the TRio failing to steal Pikachu and/or the Pokemon of the Day again? I kind of doubt it.
