Frankly, the anime has been disappointing. So uncreative and just plain stupid.

First of all, get our freakin' voice actors back.

Then get some originality and creativity.


I can only hope the movie is anything better than the anime.


Your thoughts?

Agreed...As I stated on another thread...

All the episodes follow the same exact format, The only voice actor I like is for Dawn...Because it suits her...

Someone Effed up the Anime

After mid-Johto, the Anime got really dull.

I can't believe I wasted part of my life watching that garbage. The only redeeming factor of anything Pokemon Anime related are the movies which, more than half of the time, are atleast somewhat enjoyable.

The anime is for children.
So naturally its 'not as good as it used to be' because we've outgrown it.

What's stopping them from making a more mature pokemon tv show though? Surely they must know that not only kids play pokemon games...

I agree, the anime has just gotten way to dull, repetitive, and the plot, frankly, sucks.

This is the plotline of the average episode:

QUOTE
*Walk through the woods to get to city X
*Find Random Shack #352
*Owner of random shack #352 needs help with random task #518
*Team Rocket attacks, steals some pokemon, and are soon defeated and fly away
*The heroes help the owner of random shack #352 with random task #518, and start walking again.

THE END

Seriously, that's what at least half the episodes are now, unless they've changed it i the newest season (haven't watched any of the 4th gen anime)

Oh man, they really screwed up the anime' since the Hohenn saga.

+Give back the original voice-actors. It's quite stupid when a seventeen-year-old Ash sounds younger than ten-year version.
+Make Team Rocket evil again. Look at the second episode. They freaken blew up a Poke'center! Now look them, "blasting off" twice an episode, and still trying to steal Pikachu...
+...Which gets to my next point. Make Pikachu suck again. It was actually cool when he won, but now he's the anchor.
+Have Brock become cool again. Seriously, his womanizing used to be hilarious, but now he does a more innocent flirt, and a stupid child or Crogunk beat the heck out of him. And make him serious, too. Whatever happened to the devoted brother?
+Bring back Misty. She was awesome. And by extension...
+Bring May back, too. May is definatly the cutest of the token female characters, and actually is entertaining. However...
+Kill May's brother off! Gosh I hate the little twerpy loser. Like, make him some criminal, and have him jailed for the rest of the series.
+No more multiple Legendaries! Honestly, the episode with two Lugias just ruined the "Legendary" factor.
+Stop making Ash biased towards Grass types. More of a personal preferance, but he always loves the starter Grass type more than the rest of his team. Also...
+Evolve your Poke'mon! Gosh, it's not that hard to do.

There you go. Some things they need to improve. XD However, they did do something right that they must keep.

+Keep Dawn, even if she's just a blander May. Double the cuteness, double the greatness.
+Keep Brock's Sudowoodo.

One thing that's always bugged me is that Team Rocket hasn't disbanded yet. They seperate after the Kanto games and here it is Sinnoh and... hm? What's that? They're still together god dammit. Make Jesse and James disappear for a few episodes, Team Rocket is disbanded, Jesse and James become regular trainers or such and only make them recurring but way more than other ones. Boom. Problem solved there.

Finally, they should give Brock a rest. Sure he's the best character in the anime but he's just the writer's slave now. Make him leave for a region or two, bring back Misty, and have the games male trainer join Ash for the region. Better already.

I won't get into why they should get rid of Ash but the writers won't, I know that.

Jessie and James probably will get married in the end...

Like in some of the Manga Spinoffs

emerald wyvern is right, ive only seen the 1st 3 or 4 films, but they were sweet, the series have always been a let down, what with type differences being ignored and general continuity screw ups left right n centre... screw thee anime, its why we still have to deal with such sucky animations as well... imo neways...

Battle rules I abide by:
No ubers, item clause(full), sleep clause, evasion/accuracy clause, species clause, no 1HKOs. i would prefer not to have any items that conflict with clauses, such as brightpowder. If quick claw is being used, i want to know, so i can use it as well, but prefer not to.
double or single, just choose, and expect me to ask for a battle of the other afterwards. Always happy to rematch, rematch means same line-up. Another battle is also always good, and that means the line-up changes.

sry for being so picky.

Plain and Simple. Ash needs a new team. He has extremely overpowered NON-EVOLVED Pokemon. Bulbasaur and Squirtle in season 1? Come on. Corphish? PIKACHU? Ash needs his full-evolved Pokemon back. COUGHSCEPTILECHARIZARDKINGLERMUKCOUGH

Dawn needs to go. Misty was the only good companion.

Why aren't Brock and Misty more powerful? THEY'RE FREAKING GYM LEADERS AND THEY CAN'T STAND UP TO ANYTHING.

Max should die. Now.

Team Rocket needs to become more powerful and not the same in every episode.

In my opinion, the anime shouldn't just be changed, it should be scrapped completely and replaced, with new characters and an actual plot.

Didn't they do that already? I remember seeing an episode with an entirely different cast, with different antagonists, and was actually good!

Well, if there's one thing the anime did teach me, it's that everyone loves a new rusty baby.

All jokes aside, I have (as stated in my intro topic) each episiode of the Kanto adventure on VHS, and sometimes I'll go back and watch them and just wonder how the series used to seem to great, and now it sucks. Then I remember that Ash has a bunch of useless Pokemon that he NEVER USES. That and all of the banned episodes make for some interesting plot holes. Like how Ash mysteriously had an ass load of Tauros.
