    I personally thought the WCS was a great and interesting new concept. Really the only thing I hated about it was Ash falling back into the Normal Class for an episode.

    While some people say that Journeys has downgraded Legendary Pokémon, IMO, it's that other series have made them overpowered. Same with Elite Four members. It was understandable during the early seasons, but these days? Not as much.

    This may be a bit nitpicky, but I've come to realize that how did Lillie and Lusamine immediately recognize Gladion's Zoroark as Mohn's Zoroark when they first saw it? Seems like any other Zoroark to me. If it was supposed to be a dramatic reveal, at least give it some distinct feature that...

    The most realistic execution of a school concept in the anime was probably Pokémon Tech way back in season 1. Though, as realistic as it may have been, I still didn't like the episode for several reasons, one of which being very unlikable characters.

    Man, it's been ages since I was on this thread... I feel that Juan got kind of screwed over in the anime. For all intents and purposes, he's just Wallace with a different skin and name. Like Wallace, he's a Coordinator and even uses the exact same team as Wallace. This could probably be the...

    Maybe, but I've never been a fan of Adventures making experienced Trainers have unwarranted confidence issues.

    Controversial opinions

    Regardless of what people think of Bea's treatment in the anime, for months now, I've felt her treatment in the anime has been far superior to that in Pokémon Adventures. And just now, I saw something that cemented that opinion for me.

    I've never been a fan of this concept myself. It's probably the main reason why I don't really like Molly in movie 3, or why I'm not a big fan of Togepi's Metronome in OS.

    Man, I've been away from this thread for ages again, and have missed a ton of stuff. I'd probably like to say something about Grookey too, but it seems everything I would've wanted to say about it has already been said. Oh, well.

    Man, I've been away from this thread for way too many weeks. I don't know what all I've missed, so let's see what I can come up with... Some Pokémon Adventures fans keep saying that the current anime should be replaced with an anime adaptation of Adventures, or at least that an adaptation...

    Kanto is basically the default region. It makes sense for Ash and Goh stay there while they're not exploring. If they were in Galar, viewers would be wondering why he isn't taking on the Gym Challenge. And them being with Professor Magnolia wouldn't make sense either, given that her field of...

    She is. But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate her concept.

    Vermilion is a port city with connections to the rest of the world. It's symbolic. Raihan may be as strong as a Champion, but he's not officially one. I actually like how they decided to defy the formula of a Pokégirl starting out with a clear goal or figuring one our pretty soon. Makes her...

    They still existed, even if you didn't know about them. I thought it was a good choice to have them as special so they wouldn't affect the main series until it was the right time.

    I think making Malva turn against Lysandre during the final conflict came out of the left field and was not a good choice. Her game personality was much preferred and is what I would've wanted to see more from her anime counterpart. PS. I think equally bad was her Adventures counterpart, who

    Ash's goal is meaningful too.

    We've had more than one simultaneously driving force for the main cast since Hoenn.

    Here's my controversial opinion: I prefer Journeys doing a world tour concept instead of repeating a regional journey for who knows how many-eth time. Gives us a nice change of pace.

    While the Saffron Gym arc can be considered classic, when put into context with the rest of season 1, it really doesn't make sense. In Showdown at Dark City, it was established that the Pokémon League approves whether a Gym is worthy of operating due to different reasons, and I fail to see why...

    Yeah. We saw some real life fishes several times, and even an illusion of a mongoose in one episode, to give some examples.
