    Worst Loss In The Pokemon Anime?

    In any given competition, there's always gonna be a winner and a loser. Sometimes you might see scenarios where both parties end up in a draw, but in most cases, you'll have a winner and a loser. This topic is dedicated to those losses in the Pokemon anime. Not just any loss though. Its losses...

    What's The Deal With Showing Player Characters?

    In most Ash-free anime shorts not tied to promotional material like the BW2 and ORAS anime trailers, one thing has remained questionably consistent. When it comes to the playable characters, unless your name is Red, they're constantly hidden from the audience in some form. Generations hid most...

    Missing Pokemon Journey RP's

    You know, I really do miss Pokemon Journey RP's. Its been so long since I've managed to get through one, though I've always had trouble committing to it. I want to give it a try again sometime, though part of me wonders if I might have an easier time with it running one through a Discord server...

    QoL Improvements

    When looking at the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl sight, there is a statement on the site that reads as such: "These remakes include easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences of the modern Pokémon series, plus up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes." It appears as if the...

    Should Pokemon Go Have Been Represented?

    Pokemon Journeys is a series like none other and it is the first series to represent the mobile app Pokemon Go. Its representation comes in the form of its controversial co-protagonist, Goh. The representation is very clear, from the character name all the way down to Pomemon Go's capture...

    Nintendo 2021 Predictions

    With 2021 hours away from beginning, I thought I'd go ahead and give my somewhat realistic hopes for Nintendo's 2021. 2020 has been a pretty mediocre year for Nintnedo, probably the worst in the Switch's lifecycle. We have had a pandemic going on that has delayed some games which will likely be...

    Would You Have Preferred Pokemon: Sword and Shield The Series Over Journeys?

    Since Sun and Moon, the Pokemon anime has begun to break the traditional formula in many ways. Pokemon Journeys breaks the formula entirely by opting to focus on a story spread across all regions with elements of Pokemon Go rather than the current generation alone. Would you have preferred to...

    Does Pokemon Journeys Have A Balance Issue?

    Recently, a big discussion topic has been whether Pokemon Journeys has a big issue balancing its two protagonists. Like Diamond and Pearl, this series treats one of Ash's companions as a co-protagonist, or in this case, Ash's only companion. Recently, people have been questioning whether this...

    Worst Max Raid NPC Partners

    Max Raids alone can be very difficult when you get NPC Pokemon who aren't very helpful. Unfortunately, there are a few who the game will randomly pair you with, often screwing you over in the process. Which NPC partners are the worst?

    Sun and Moon: The Final Stretch

    Starting next week, we will officially be in the Alola League, and that means the end is near. We are just under 21 weeks away from the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, with the Sword and Shield series likely starting the first Sunday after the games come out. This leaves us with a few...

    Does It Feel Like Ash Loses More In SM?

    One thing I have noticed as we've gone through over 100 episodes of the Sun and Moon series is that Ash seems to lose a lot more, unfortunately. This especially seems to apply to battles outside of major battles he has to win due to plot armor, those being Totem Pokemon and the Island Kahunas...

    The Pokemon Anime: Slice of Life vs Action-Adventure

    The Sun and Moon series is a huge contrast to previous series, especially the XY(Z) series. In the past, series focused on Ash and his friends as they traveled the region, helped out random CotD’s, trained their Pokemon, and competed in leagues. Ash and his companions will tackle every obstacle...

    Worst Examples of Dub Music Replacement

    We all know the TPCI is infamous for replacing 95% of the original music with typically boring and generic sounding tracks that do not fit the scene. It can be anything, from instrumentals of the Japanese opening themes, to original anime music such as "To Be Continued", or actual in game music...

    The Battle Agency

    I don't think I've seen a thread for this yet, but what what are your thoughts about the Battle Agency? Is it any easier to play through than the Battle Tree, and can we get a chance to face trainers like Champion Cynthia, Wally, or Grimsley?

    Guzma's Redemption?

    The new trailer has a rather interesting quote from ya boy Guzma. He says "Maybe when you bring out the best in others, it helps you find the best in yourself, too, huh?" It almost seems as if he's working alongside us. As we know, at the end of Sun and Moon, he disbands Team Skull and he is...

    Battle Tree Difficulty Spike?

    So we all know the Battle Tree is this generation's battle facility and here we can get the chance to face trainers such as Wally, Colress, and the queen herself, Champion Cynthia. Do you think that the Battle Tree has a bit of an unfair and extreme difficulty spike though for players?
